Been here (local) several times with friends - food and service are always very good but lacking in price to portion size...

For the 15th year, we were able to celebrate our anniversary at a Chef Feker-owned restaurant. This year, it was Zesti. Up until Monday, May 18th we were certain the situation wouldn't allow us to go out. It was the first time in 2 months that we'd dined inside a restaurant. That, in & of itself, was so special.

The gracious staff, comfortable seating, and rolled up front windows added to the experience. Of course, consistently spectacular food was our go-to. You keep serving it, we'll keep coming back.

Thank you!

The food was decent if a bit uninspired. Our service was fine. The wine list is poor, but we made do. It just felt a bit neglected, like no one is really paying attention to what the customers might be interested in. I don't think I'll go back any time soon because there are so many other better alternatives.

Zesti's exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to return! It's a nice kept secret in our community, but hopefully that will change!

We also want to try out the other 3 affiliate restaurants!

Kudos to the chef! We loved his passion...we could taste it!

Zesti is a great and fun spot to go! The atmosphere is warm and inviting and conveniently located in downtown Hartland. My friend & I each had pasta dishes and we both loved our meals (she had the blue crab stuffed ravioli and I had the fettuccine carbonara) as well as our drinks. I appreciate how the menu gets changed up and is well thought out. Claire was also an amazing server!!

We had an 8 o’clock reservation which we were on time for and they sat us immediately. My husband thought his Matzo pizza was great. Pasta bouilanaise was meaty and delicious. Paella was a little drier than it should’ve been and it could have probably used more seafood. The service by Christine was outstanding.

6:45pm the bar and restaurant was full on a snowy night. One bartender who needed some help, so that caused a wait for our drinks. Food was great and our table server was really good!

This was our third visit to Zesti, and we’ll keep coming back. Claire was our sweet and attentive waitress that was very helpful with menu items. We had two appetizers to share, the eggplant and the calamari. Both were flavorful but the calamari is more onion string than calamari, as Claire warned us. We shared the Wild Caught Salmon that was blackened with dill sauce, served with roasted 1/4 cut potatoes and asparagus. It was flavorful and a generous portion. If I had a improvement to suggest, it would be that the bar area was bigger to accommodate the crowd, but the bartenders keep up.

We have been to Zesti a couple of times. Both visits it’s been very chaotic. The wait staff is always running around like they have never worked in a restaurant. The food was good but they were out of duck and that was what my husband was planning on ordering....

This was my second visit to Zesti. The food is fantastic. I ordered the gluten free linguine dish and it was amazing. The restaurant was short staffed for the evening due to some servers calling out sick with the flu and our service was still wonderful. Knowledgeable, honest waitstaff, good wine list, great ambiance, and overall great experience. The server told my 11 year-old son that even though it wasn't on the menu, he could have any pasta he wanted with all the variations as choices, and the same would apply for the pizzas. Very accommodating!! We were too full for dessert, but I'm sure it would have rocked. Try this restaurant with family, date night, out with friends, etc... You won't be disappointed.

We enjoyed our visit to Zesti. Overall it was very enjoyable. The only "issue" we had was that the 3 pasta dishes did not meet our expectations.
