It’s a great pleasure having you here and we thank you for your continued support through the years.

We’ve seen a lot of changes during our time here, and we are very pleased to introduce our new gastropub, Munk & Nunn; complete with a brand new marble bar, state of the art lighting system, and a touch of old world charm. Our custom hand-crafted church pews provide comfortable seating near the bar, and our traditional café style seating is perfect for dinner parties or after work gatherings. If you’d prefer to be outside we’ve got you covered--our sidewalk seating is perfectly shaded in the summer and comfortably heated in the fall.
Our goal is for every guest to enjoy all we have to offer, from our unique and flavorful small plates to our famous whole fish and traditional Greek favorites. Quench your thirst with the coldest beer on tap in Philadelphia, or share a delicious treat from our signature cocktail menu. Once you’ve been here, you will always be considered a friend.

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.
