We ate at Zesty's for the first time and were very pleased with our appetizers and dinners ... everything was delicious. The chef even came out to introduce himself and to enjoy our one year old granddaughter. We will be back to savor the food again ... and will recommend it to others.

Our service was exceptional - I really couldn't have asked for a nicer staff on my birthday. If you're looking for a fast in and out meal - this isn't it, but if you want to sit with friends and enjoy this is perfect. Great food too!

We were a party of 4 for Saturday dinner. We have dined across the country in 5 star restaurants for 40 years. The entrees were both beautiful and delicious. The chiefs composition of individual textures, flavors and colors were phenomenal.
Lamb chops, sea bass, stuffed chicken breast, and a eggplant vegetable medley that was shared by all.
Elegant surprise!

I chose Zesty's quite randomly and we four were very pleased with all our entrees. I had the chicken dish with a mushroom sauce that I wish I could replicate. Simply delightful. Salads very fresh. Desserts were appropriately small and very light - everyone partook. I look forward to our next visit.

This was our 5th visit to Zesty's and it scored a 5 each time. The food is always great, the servers are friendly, the owner is engaging, and the atmosphere is perfect, whether for just the two of us or with friends. It is a consistent winner that will keep us coming back.

I haven't been to Zesty's in years, but really liked our early dinner. Parking meters are available the earlier you arrive.
Jason was a wonderful server who allowed us to sample multiple wines before choosing. He even gave my friend half a glass-at half the price-since she was driving. That was amazingly accommodating.
Our shared grilled octopus and moussaka dishes were terrific. Zesty's also has a great decor.
Really enjoyed and will return when in the area.

Great service by the new manager, Jason. My mom and I felt very welcome and were well accommodated. The food was really good and worth the price paid. My only disappointment was that they changed the happy hour from 1/2 price off all drinks to only certain drinks. With that being said, I will definitely be going back for lunch or dinner soon!

Lovely restaurant on Main Street Manayunk. Owner/chef is a tremendously congenial guy with a great deal of talent for fish. Service is excellent and ambiance is perfect for entertaining. Plus, the musicians (guitar duo) were terrific - not too loud but added to the atmosphere.

Mediocre to pretty good Greek cuisine in a neighborhood where there are a ton of restaurants and you probably have better choices for a good meal. My wife's grilled fish,(Dover sole) which is a specialty and was highly recommended to us was quite expensive and only mediocre. I would recommend sticking with the less expensive traditional Greek dishes which are probably a better value and more close to what one might expect for the price.

Service was friendly but slower then we would have liked. No wine list was available and they were out of at least one wine. Baby octopus was very good, the whole fish was excellent, the lamb "kebab" looked great but was overcooked. We were treated more than fairly by the owner who removed this item from the bill. Our groupon was not accepted, perhaps because it was Mothers Day.
I would recommend Zesty's for the food, but be careful what you orser.

Experiences at Zesty's with adult diners has always been exceptional. The food is always top notch and service is fairly good. It is not a kid restaurant though. No kids menu. But they do make a modest effort to accommodate families by offering an off menu spaghetti dish for $5. Will definitely return, but maybe not with the kids. Great chef!
