Finely prepared fresh food that is delicious
We had reservations for 7:30 it was after 8:45 before we even received our appetizers by the time our food arrived it was almost 9:30.. it was my birthday and 1st experience here I really was disappointed
Excellent food and service. Great views from the outside seating area. A must for romantic dining or just a nice night out. Highly recommended.
Excellent service! Food was all very good. Great views of the downtown and stacks.
First time having Brunch and everything was fabulous! Mimosa tower was an awesome addition to our Sunday afternoon spent with the girls!
Had a wonderful table outside with a spectaculer view. Yes, they are on the pricier side, but the quality and choices make it worth it. It is a great place to go on a date, or to take those visiting the area an opportunity to view downtown and see what great restaurants we have here in the lehigh valley.
Staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. Loved the balcony seating and would definitely try this again at night and different times of the year to check out the ambience during those times. Easy to access from the parking garage too.
Food and service was excellent. Loved the view
Such a nice atmosphere and the food was amazing. Definitely have to go back.
We had a great time!! The service was excellent. Food was fantastic. Overall a great night out!!
Amazing experience amazing food amazing service. Our waitress was Jackie, very good service and a very nice person. I'll be visiting Zest again!!!
Two words: bone marrow!! Expertly prepared (it’s tricky!) and nicely presented. My lobster tail dinner was very creative and tasty although the lobster tails themselves were somewhat small. My husband’s short rib buns were great although the buns didn’t need to be deep fried, his duck wings were perfect. We will definitely go back.
First visit and the food was delicious and all the workers were great. Would definitely visit again for a special occasion. Very expensive for weekly dining - but it was a nice treat to celebrate a birthday! Appreciated the birthday cake treat for our daughter.
We went to Zest on 7/16/21 around 2130. Manager was accommodating. We were late about 15 minutes and we weren’t turned away. Requested to be seated outside and he allowed us to. Deanna the waitress was attentive, energetic, & overall pleasant. She kept checking on us and made sure our drinks were filled. The whole staff greeted us upon entry and when we left. It was money well spent. Drove all the way to Bethlehem from Nazareth. We will be returning to Zest Restaurant.
Another great experience. Jacque was a tremendous waitress and the entire staff was yet again exceptional. The meal was cooked to perfection and the drinks tasted awesome. Nothing but the best when you go to ZEST!
Great experience all around. The champagne cake for dessert was worth the price of admission alone. Highly recommend!
Fun time! Good food and drinks. Waitress was very nice.
Awesome food, energetic and friendly staff. Fits all occasions.

Beautiful city views, great food! We recommend the mussels and clams for appetizer.
The service and food was top notch. Our waitress was very kind and helpful when selecting food. The food was high end and made with care. Would highly recommend!
Food was very good. Had swordfish that melted in your mouth. Lobster tails were cooked to perfection. Salads were huge.

Zest never disappoints. Our server was attentive and pleasant. Food was phenomenal..
It was packed and the staff was doing a greT job keeping up but definitely very busy. The food was delicious and came quickly. Highly recommend the mussels and clams.
Excellent place. My waitress could’ve been better. Not enough attention
It was our anniversary and they made us feel special. Congratulated us and brought us a glass of Prosecco to celebrate! Awesome food and drinks.
First off our server Ashley was amazing. She constantly check to see how everything was and we had detailed conversation about the food. Every recommendation she gave was spot on. The food was well prepared down to the smallest detail. The food was not just a well prepared protein with a side, every item on the plate had a purpose and was made to perfection. The view from the restaurant is breathtaking and we will ask for a table near the window next time. Lastly do not leave without having dessert, you’ll regret it. Ashley recommend the Chocolate Creme Brûlée, wow! You will never taste something so rich and smooth. This place is now on our rotation of great restaurants
S at outside on the balcony on a beautiful day. Our sever was great and the service was spot on. Had the broiled pork chop which was about an inch and a half to two inches thick and was tender and juicy and cooked to perfection. We had a good time and didn't feel like leaving so we went into the bar area for about another hour. Will be going back again.
Amazing experience! View was phenomenal as were the drinks and food menu. Very impressed!
We enjoyed the view while sitting outside. Our meals were promptly served, barely any wait time after ordering. The food was delicious. Our cocktails were perfectly prepared. The staff was very friendly. We will be back.
The ambiance, food, drinks and service were all impeccable.
Great views from inside and out. Food was excellent. The waitress was attentive and able to answer all of our questions. Best dining we've had since the pandemic.
The view from the rooftop was nice and the food was fantastic. They were busy but our food came out rather quickly and was absolutely delicious.
Outside seating area in the “tent” was quite loud.
The food was amazing. A little pricey but very good!!!!
Sat outside. Wonderful food, drinks and service. It was quiet outside but inside was much busier/louder.
