My fiance and I went to Zesti to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. Our first date was at Zesti. We definitely recommend it. The food is outstanding and the service was excellent. We had reservations for right when they opened so there weren't many people there yet, so it was quiet. We both had the Fettucine Carbonara and it was excellent. Last time we were here, my fiance had the lasagna and thought is was excellent. This is a great place for date night and for having dinner with friends and family. We can't wait to go back!

Service was horribly slow. 40 minute wait just for appetizer. Calamari was greasy and the lamb tasted like dried out chicken. We ended up sending back all of our food and went elsewhere.

The food was excellent and our server was very entertaining.
I enjoy a server that is attentive and not intrusive. She had it down to the right amount of service without being omni present.
Great layout and a very nice menu of both casual and upscale dining choices.
I'm glad we gave Zests a try and my wife and I will defiantly be returning.

Don’t waste your money. Horrible service...slow and rude waitress. Steak was like shoe leather and sauce was left off. Spaghetti was super salty. Burnett’s salad was drowning in dressing and beet salad was tasteless. Best thing was the bread.

Highly recommend Zesti. Our food was delicious from Appetizers
To Dessert !!! Service was top notch. We sat inside , but right by the window, so dining felt very safe. We need to go back and try the things we didn’t order Wednesday night !!!

I was very disappointed with the service and freshness of the food. Ordered the seafood symphony some of the mussels were not open about 4. If the chef and staff were educated on mussels this would not have been served.

Service was extremely slow. Food was great once it showed up. We had a very loud table not far from us that drowned out any conversation we might have had.

We had an amazing anniversary dinner at Zesti. Our waitress, Claire, was awesome. The food was exceptional, especially the fish of the day -- Salmon in teriyaki sauce.

Seafood pasta was maybe the best I ever had. Other diners had salmon special, chicken dish and pasta with bolognese sauce..all outstanding. Our server was spot on. Just a perfect evening.
Thank you Zesti's

Drinks were outstanding. Food was really good.only item with an issue was the desert. The middle of the cake was burnt (in the microwave too long?). Other than that, I can’t wait to get beck there. Love it!

Very disappointed to see the staff in masks. They were not just a couple of weeks when we were there last. That was one of the major reasons we returned. If we had known ahead of time, we would not have made the trek out there. Next time we will call ahead. Not a fan of being treated like we have the plague. We only stayed to eat because we know the food is good and we had already driven out there. Won’t be back while masks are being worn by anyone. 🐑😷

Zesti was a great choice for dinner in the Lake County area! The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and unique, and getting to sit on the outdoor patio was the icing on the cake! Overall, my experience at Zesti was fantastic and I cannot wait to come back for another meal soon.

The only reason the noise level is not a five-star is because I said outside and that is going to be as noisy as it's going to be. I have yet to sit inside so the jury is still out on that rating... Guess I'll just have to go back again and again.

Excellent food. They are always consistent. Service excellent. Was a tad warm in the restaurant with the windows open in early July; but it was bearable. The only suggestion I would make is the drinks from the bar are not made well. We’ve noticed this for a few months now.

Claire made sure we were well taken care of. She was very observant to our needs and knew when to come and when to give us time. The food was great, perfect amount of sun/shade mix for an early dinner.

Have had great dinners the past - and we will return, but on our recent visit, service was good in the beginning and then we were forgotten. Finally the hostess came over and cleared our plates, brought our bill, etc. I think they had a bigger crowd than they anticipated and service suffered. Food is always imaginative. But this time I ordered the chopped salad, but the steak I added tasted like it was grilled over kerosene. I couldn't eat it. Seemed like a quality cut of meet - but the kerosene type of flavor ruined it.

You can usually tell a good restaurant by their salads. My Ceasar salad was was perfect. And so was my entree.

Was truly great. So nice to see a place acting like intelligent people without masks, etc. They should add more tables. That felt a bit weird. But, a very nice time!
