ZEST is the one restaurant in North Raleigh that we return to again and again. We often go on Saturday evening when wine is 1/2 price! For years I have ordered the "select salad" with a salmon filet. It is a huge fresh salad with...More

The food is always great and so is the service, but the noise level is ridiculous. Was there with friends and we were yelling at each other in order to be heard. Apparently, the thinking is if the music is loud then people don't worry...More

Breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner. Many choices, all different from the usual restaurant menus. Salads, sandwiches, appetizers, entrees - from a world-wide selection.

Eating at Zest is always a pleasant experience. Ben and Marvin make it their business to get to know customers on a first name basis. The menu changes offer and the food is always great.

Had a girlfriends' lunch and ordered the Cubano. It was one of the tastiest Cuban sandwiches I've ever eaten! The bread was perfect; pork was juicy; side fruit was fresh and tasty. Their raspberry iced tea was superb! This place is Wow!
