Our menu is seasonal and it changes with different dinner specials every two weeks. The setting is always service oriented and the restaurant is perfect for families.
It's a fun place for friends to gather with a great happy hour and fantastic banquet facilities.
This is well known as one of the best restaurants in Yakima. Great drinks and wonderful food! The bar is very comfortable and you feel safe there.
First off, they don’t use the Open Table reservation service. So if you want a reservation you have to call ahead. Second: every time I have been here I walk away thinking I could have had better for less somewhere else. My wife for some reason loves the place, but even she commented on how bad the service was this time.
As far as the food goes, my pasta was over cooked and drowning in sauce. The meatballs appeared to have been made fresh by Sysco or food services of America. Definitely not worth the additional $6.
My wife and I along with many friends have long enjoyed the dining experience at Zesta.
The food is always great as is the friendly and prompt service. Only negative for hearing impaired like me, is the noise level is lively.
I took my friend there for his birthday and they were out of both of the entrees we picked for dinner
and we orders our apps to go with dinner. Very disappointing and no one really cared either. I will not be going there anytime soon. Yes the owner pick up our tab but that really wasn't the point. We wanted to eat dinner there, out of ribs and Mahi Mahi. If anything we should of got a gift card to try and come back again. Restaurants don't understand there are alot of choices in Yakima these days and if customers are not happy they just will not be back, a gift card would of got us back to maybe change our mind about the restaurant.
Fresh sheet was amazing. Mahi mahi plate was so good, scallops cooked perfectly. Great kid meals for a wonderful value. They will even bring out dough for them to play with. The tables have paper sheets that everyone can color on but it still looks very nice. Every time we go this restaurant exceeds my expection.
Great meal with family. I made the comment that we could have easily passed the plates around and everyone would have enjoyed the meal ordered by someone else. Entrees were well plated and cooked to perfection.
We had a surprise Birthday party here for my wife. We were treated like family, as always. Super friendly staff, excellent service and food. We highly recommend this for special occasions and romantic dining. Happy hour is fun too.
we have enjoyed this restaurant in the past. However this time the service was rushed. We had just finished our appetizer and our dinner was delivered and lukewarm. We had to ask to have our dessert held until we were ready. We were never asked how things were. Not up to par....
Excellent place would definitely go back!
Restaurant was extremely busy and loud but staff did a good job in keeping things moving. Food was satisfactory but forgettable but wine was served too warm which suggests poor storage conditions.
Peaches are in season in the Yakima valley and Peach Creme Brûlée is the highlight of the menu at Zesta Cucina. Enjoy while it lasts!
The food was excellent and the server we had was prompt and checked on us often and drinks were filled fast.
Delicious,thoughtfully prepared, perfectly seasoned food delivered in a great atmosphere. The owner, Lucho de la Combe, knows what it means to be a restaurateur.
We always take my older parents here when we come to town. The food is great, the location is fun, and it is just a nice place to be.
Great service, comfortable atmosphere, excellent food.
Table was ready as soon as we walked in the door and we were seated immediately. Service was very good. Really, we wanted for nothing. Food was brought the table relatively quickly and for the most part was delicious. Only thing we didn’t like was the Caesar salad dressing. It was a some citrus version instead of traditional creamy egg version. Overall, very enjoyable, generous portions, comfortable ambiance.
I was sorry to have missed the mushroom ravioli. We ordered it, but were told after waiting, you were out of it. Chose something else, that was OK but not brilliant
Always love the celebratory interior of Zesta along with the top notch service and delicious food options. Highly recommend it!
Just a bit slow to get seated but then everything was great after that. We will be back.
Good as usual
The food was very good with the sauce on the halibut just gorgeous. The plate looked fantastic as well. The server was very pleasant, fast, professional and friendly. Could ask nothing more of her. I would say we dine there every month to two months, and we have never had anything even remotely dissatisfying. My only negative is the atmosphere...it could be updated.
One of the best restaurants in Yakima. The food was superb and the atmosphere great. A great place to have a dinner or celebration.
Loved the children received their food promptly, that allowed us to help them and still enjoy our meal. They really enjoyed it also. The food was very good. We go often and have never been disappointed.
Overall I would restaurant to anyone that enjoies a clean and friendly environment. The service and food are outstanding. The owners are interactive with the customers to ensure you have a great dinning experience. The price is reasonable and you will not be disappointed.
I love the Glenwood Square location, but had bad experiences with Zesta's under the old owners. I was given a gift card and went there with my wife for a date. It felt like a different restaurant. Most Italian places have 4 or so sauces, a soup or two, and mostly do a mix and match of sauce/meat/noodle permutations. Like Taco Bell's model, but Italian. Zesta C. is not taking that lazy route. You can tell that each dish has a distinct blend of flavors from each other. Also, I ended up getting their basic Red house wine, and was surprised to find it very good, instead of the basic that I was expecting.
Zesta Cucina is always good. The food and service are always great.
The meal was great. It was Valentine's day so they were very busy. We had made a reservation so we wouldn't have to worry about waiting, however there wasn't anyone waiting to be seated when we arrived and we were seated right away. Our waiter Dennis was great. If I had to make any recommendation it would be butter for the bread that we ordered.
I had the prime rib and it was fantastic!
Went for our anniversary dinner, which is close to Valentines Day, the day before to be exact, so the restaurant was busy. But we were seated quickly, were able to order and get our food in less than 15 minutes. The food was good and the place itself is always so nice and pretty inside.
My wife had Kobe Beef NY Steak on the specialty menu and I had the Parmesian Chicken. When in doubt, get the Kobe Beef. It was wonderful. The Parmesian Chicken was authentic and the pasta accompaniment was very well prepared. Give the Chopped Salad a try as well. Very good food and a nive welcoming atmosphere.
The food is always good at Zesta, and the service is top notch. They were very busy, and we were seated upstairs. It’s louder than downstairs and was packed to the gills, which made the evening not quite as pleasant as I would have liked. The salmon and the cioppino were delicious, as were the calamari and steamed clam appetizers.
Zestas is such a great place to go for good food and lively atmosphere
Great food and awesome ambiance!
We took our niece out for a delicious dinner for her 21st Birthday. She wanted to eat healthy and have a nice selection to choose from. Zesta Cucina was the obvious choice. She said dinner was excellent and the interior decorating is warm, relaxing and inviting. Thanks again!
Went out for a girls dinner with my mom. Our server was phenomenal! I need to remember her name and repost. The other staff was also very friendly from busboys to hostess. The ambiance was great, really cool decor, and the food was good.
Wedge Salad - We were told this was a dinner, not starter, salad. That is NOT true. It was tiny and not a wedge at all. Still good but the advertising was not in line with the product.
Filet - My filet was greatly overcooked. I sent it back and it came back perfect. Our server told me should would have sent it back without me asking since it wasn't at all what I asked for :) She made me feel better when I felt like I was complaining. Once it came back it was great (mashed potatoes were awesome!).
We always enjoy the food and ambiance at Zesta Cucina! The only reservation I have is that twice now we’ve experienced where they have ran out of food from their special occasion menu. During Valentines Day it was Lobster and during New Years it was the seared scallops. I would suggest earlier reservations during this time. Other than that it’s delicious food and always great service!
Food was excellent! Service was good. Food came really fast.
I had a business associate request a dinner meeting. He lives out of town and asked me to pick the restaurant. I've never had a bad meal here and wanted to turn him onto a real gem in our town. The results were great. The restaurant will be patrionized by this individual with many more meetings he has in our area. Enjoy.
My birthday reservation of 3 exploded into a spur of the moment family gathering of 11! I called 90 minutes ahead and asked if it were possible to seat us all ... and the staff was amazing! They did it!! They even sat us in the same area we were seated 5 Year’s ago ( when my husband proposed!) Our waitress was so fun, accommodating and extremely helpful! Wish I’d gotten her name! We will be back for my birthday every year!!:) thank you for providing such a beautiful place to go in Yakima!!
The food is delicious the services wonderful the ambience is great who could ask for more
