I really enjoyed my visit to Zest. The food and drinks were great. The atmosphere was nice. They have done a good job of keeping people safe but still creating a nice ambiance.
Service was great and our scallop and filet entrees were very tasty!
The sea bass was expertly prepared, presented and served. Our server/bartender was great. Made good suggestions as to wine. Very enjoyable evening.
The guest i was with was not able to eat her meal due to the high salt content in which she was unaware of and the waitress did not offer a solution or to remove the meal from the bill so we took it to go and did not end up eating it. For the price, i would expect some sort help from the waitress, instead, the person i was with left hungry and still spent $26 on her meal.
I’ve been here twice my wife has been here three or four times and celebrated her baby shower here. We love it, the food, views and ambience.
Our waitress was amazing and zest was super accommodating but unfortunately, they were out of most of the appetizers offered on the Valentine's day fixed menu.
Great place enjoyable!!! Love the food and drinks service was great I would recommend this place for sure will be bk soon
The taste of the food was not worth the price. Plus they ran out of food on a set menu, that required reservations. Will not go back.
It was our Valentine’s Day and Anniversary dinner and we chose Zest for the menu and because we know they usually deliver. It was a very good dinner and I appreciated Emily for being a great server. Thank you zest for making our night special we will surely be back.
While this place is certainly expensive, it is some of the best food and drinks I've ever had. Certainly the best steak I've ever had. The view is amazing and the staff are kind courteous. I highly recommend this place if you have the money to spend.
Not worth the bill at the end. But it was okay overall.
Our first time visiting Zest was on valentine's day. We expected it to be very busy so we didn't have high expectations. Zest is known for the great views over the area because of the huge windows... Our table was shoved in a corner with walls on three sides of us - likely a COVID regulation... but it was easily the worst seat in the house. We didn't get any bread (again, it's busy so we understand. No problem.) My steak came out extremely overcooked but it tasted pretty good so I didn't complain about it. For spending $250 it was a pretty rough experience. I will absolutely try Zest again but we weren't too thrilled about our first visit.
Was my first time and it was also my anniversary everything was outstanding very good, glad we when definitely I’m going back
A good place to have fun with excellent service and a variety of dishes from your selection, drinks of all kinds. Has a balcony overlooking the city of Bethlehem.
Great food and better view! Service was awesome and prices were fair.
The atmosphere is awesome. The service was fast, professional and friendly. The food was all very good. Even with smaller portions after appetizers, entrees and even dessert we left very content. Can't wait to go back when patio seating is available.
Food was good however the drinks vibes and service was outstanding!! Always is !
It was a great experience if you want to go out and talk and get to know your date or even go out out for a business dinner you can. Chef has a heavy hand with the salt but besides that everything was great
For the first time my family ordered the Dumplings appetizer. They were delicious
and went well with the Spring Rolls. The filet mignon was SO TENDER and melted
in my mouth. My family LOVED the Espresso Martinis. Our Hostess and Wait staff
were VERY COVID SAFE and were fantastic through out our dinner. We will be
back in another month for my next son's birthday.
We loved the food and our server was lovely and friendly and attentive. Great night out.
Food and drinks were perfect. Out forget the waitresses name but she was very helpful at suggesting what wines we should pair our food with.
Very nice intimate evening with my fiancé for Valentine’s Day. We both loved the incredible food, service, privacy, respect, and atmosphere of this super trendy restaurant. It made out Valentine’s Day.
We were in the back room with a party of 15. It wasn't the most romantic atmosphere, but I understand we're in a pandemic and was just happy to be there! The food was fabulous, as usual, and the service impeccable! The drink specials were awesome! Can't wait to come back!
Very accommodating from start to finish. Great service, atmosphere and food!
All around fantastic experience. The staff are very kind and accommodating. Food was delicious and drinks were strong! Huzzah!
This was our first time dinning at Zest. We highly recommend it, the food was amazing and so were the drinks. The service was outstanding and so was the view and the room. We highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!!
Wonderful experience...food, service and ambiance. We will definitely be back and recommend
Service was excellent! Food was delicious and portions were plentiful. Nice selection of cocktails.
Everything was fantastic! The drinks food and ambiance were great!
Visit was delightful. Our server, Ashley was super! Along with all the support staff. Also really enjoyed our meal.
In this time of Covid restrictions it was a delight to be at Zest among people of good cheer. The service and food were top notch. This was not our first visit, so we do expect to be treated well and enjoy delicious food. Our expectations have always been met!
The nighttime view affords a panorama of lights looking toward the north side of Bethlehem. A very nice experienc all around.
Wonderful atmosphere and great view. Our meal and drinks were fabulous and timing between courses was perfect... we were not rushed at all. Everyone was friendly and our waitress Ashley was very nice and attentive. It was a perfect evening!
Tables are not socially distant but food was very good.
A bit cold sitting in the bar area with my wife. Food, drinks, service, and timing were all spot on! Much needed night out and not cooking at home!
We had a lovely meal. The food was excellent as well as the service. Our server was extremely attentive. We will be back!!
Food was good and the service was great. Our waitress deserves a 10 for outstanding service!
If you're looking for somewhere different with a nice atmosphere this place is perfect. The food and drinks were both delish ! Def check them out! The service is stellar as well. Jaslynn was phenomenal!
Zest was recommended by our 24 yr old daughter, we had a great night out - our server, Emily, was amazing! The food and atmosphere were exactly what we were looking for. I'm sure we'll be back.
