Always fresh, innovative and interesting. Great service, noisy with lots of people and the music was too loud to have a conversation. One of my fave places to take friends that haven’t tried it .
My friend and I were blown away by all of the options. We’re still dreaming about the meal.
Excellent Service and a menu that will make you want to return and check out more.
I went with two other people and every one of our meals were excellent. They have done very unique, delicious cocktails as well. I left feeling satisfied with my healthy meal.
Delicious vegan menu, with great service and a nice vibe. I wish the chef would add tofu and seitan to the menu, but still, cashews go a long way.
This place is wonderful for vegan lovers. The surprise comes when my meat and potatoes friends ask to come back to Zest
I’ve eaten here a couple other times, and it has been quite good. This time, the “cheese” plate was delicious, Irish stew was excellent, but the mac & cheese was mushy and bland. But I will be back again and get something different and i’m sure it will be great again because there are so many yummy vegan options.
Hands down one of the best vegan restaurants I have experienced. Highly recommend.
So amazing! My favorite restaurant in SLC! The food and drinks were amazing. A wonderful atmosphere for our 1 year anniversary. I absolutely loved both our appetizer and our entrees.
An absolutely outstanding eating/dining experience. My client friends (we were all from out of town) wanted a destination restaurant that served gluten-free food and ample vegetarian options. Great food, personal attention, and an energizing environment. Highly recommend but definitely plan ahead. The place was packed.
I food was pretty good but not great and the service was average to below average. Would go again and give it another shot for sure as i hesitate to judge off of one visit on a weeknight. Lighting was cool, seating was good, noise level was about what you would expect from the space not loud but not quite either and the layout was cool.
We loved the food and our waiter was was fun and very helpful.
The Irish Stew was fantastic and the spinach dip was amazing.
Service unorganized. Not enough menu variety. Not enough choices
Menu needs an overhaul
I invited a died in the wool carnivore here. He was so impressed he said that he wants to come back!
Talk about everything you want in one spot!! All Gluten Free, ALL Vegan, and almost all Organic. So delicious with great hand crafted cocktails as well!!
Innovative menu with great food in a slightly quirky setting. Recommended!
I loved everything about this place! The food, ambiance, service. The bartender (wish I got her name!) was so friendly and helpful. The food delish. I was only in town for 3 night but ate there twice! This will definitely be my go-to place whenever I'm in SLC. Try it, you'll love it.
We enjoyed dinner so much the night before that we went back for the brunch on Sunday. If you are looking for an allergy free restaurant, this is the place.
I don’t know why Zest gets better every time I go. But it does!
Gluten free heaven and the best crafted cocktails we have ever tasted
I'm visiting my vegan sister in SLC, with our third vegan sister. They go to Zest for special occasions and wanted to share y'all's cuisine with me. Mixed drinks were very good (not exceptional, though); food was tasty and plentiful. Especially liked the baked mushrooms and stuffed avocados, though it took a very long time for the mushroom appeitzers to arrive. Nice to have a vegan place in SLC that's creative and pleasant to spend an evening!
Zest is one of the few restaurants with vegan options that also offer oil free options on their menu. As a follower of The Starch Solution I am one of many who are always in search of restaurants that offer nourishing food without harmful, artery clogging oil. The dishes at Zest are delicious, beautifully plated, and have surprised my non-vegan date enough to bring him for a second visit. The jalapeno poppers were heavenly! Thank you!
This vegan food is outstanding. Some of the best I’ve ever had, and I will be back next time I’m in SLC. Thank you for an excellent representation of plant based meals!!
I would've given Zest 5 stars for everything, except we had a reservation, and they still made us wait for 10 minutes :( Besides that food was great! Love the vegetarian takes on traditional dishes. Neither my husband nor I are vegetarians but we loved our meals.
Everything went wrong from the minute we got there. They didn’t have our reservation, couldn’t get a drink because the bar tenders didn’t look up, the guacamole was frozen and the chips were stale. My sister has a nut allergy and they said they basically couldn’t help her. I ate out a to go box because I thought I had to run to an appointment but then stayed and they claimed they couldn’t take it from the box and change it to a bowl in the back. They never asked if we wanted more drinks so my sisters sat empty for an hour of the meal. Then when we spoke to the GM and told her she gave us a look and said she’d go get the check. They comped one item I think. Not even about the money just the principle. It was a disaster.
Zest is one of my all time favorite places to eat. The food is perfection and the staff is always friendly, kind, and helpful! Can’t say enough about it!
The menu hasn't changed and the skillet Mac and cheese was a bit tasteless. I could only eat 1/2. Maybe that's because I don't appreciate the vegan-like nature of the food.
The noise level is too loud for a good conversation. The cooling system was blasting me with too much air.
The cocktails took VERY long, but my kombucha cocktail was delicious.
The staff were wonderful in all ways.
The food and service were amazing. The only problem was how hot it was inside. It was difficult to choose warm or hot dishes when we were sweating and unable to cool down.
Attentive service for a large group and delicious cocktails. I have taken a group to Zest for the past two years and look forward to doing so again. From reservation to payment, this was easy and delicious.
Good and healthy food for a good price.
Amazing Amazing Amazing!
Zest is a special place that promotes taste and health.
Very friendly & relaxed atmosphere. Excellent service. (Thanks Nic) Outstanding tonight were the deviled avocados, bbq pizza, tacos and tiramisu. We also enjoyed from the menu several well detailed cocktails with rosemary, lavender & peach. Looking for to next time!
What a great surprise. Our meals were healthy AND delicious. They were creative and so flavorful. We had the mac and cheese, curry, manicotti, and power salad. All were delicious. Our margaritas were great - a little slow in coming (my only complaint). Our waitress was fun. Highly recommend.
Creative and Delicious vegan options!
Zest is one of my favorite restaurants in Salt Lake City! The food is always excellent, even if the ingredients seem strange like "Zuc and Cheese" or "Chilled Manticotti," but believe me it is worth it. I love the healthy options that are a available. It is a breath of fresh air in a world of fast and unhealthy eateries.
Everything on the brunch menu looked really good and I had a hard time deciding. Very yummy, not too oily food. Interior had nice ambiance and good service. Decent value for price (some drinks a little pricey).
Delicious! Great atmosphere and wonderful food! I will be going back soon!
All vegan but those who are not will be amazed and most likely rate at least 4 stars.
