  • "Excellent service from our server Morgan. She knew her menu, made excellent suggestions and was extremely friendly. The dinner menu had a variety of items which made it difficult in deciding. We were a party of four men out on our own away from the ladies and we wanted to relax and enjoy the surroundings and each other's company. Zest was the perfect place for this. Our food was very good as was the free wine tasting we experienced. We will return." -Facebook Fan

  • "We had a FANTASTIC meal at Zest! The Lamb was prepared perfect and the tenderloin was out of this world! The atmosphere was laid back with a very warm modern feel. The staff was friendly and fun. A good beer and wine selection along with perfectly cooked food made our experience a 10 out of 10. Can't wait to go back again! Get out and support this wonderful new restaurant Summerville! You will be glad you did!" -UrbanSpoon Fan
  • "Finally something new & different in Summerville! A friend & I visited the first time for lunch & were delighted with the food & service. I had the pork tenderloin grilled cheese with gingered peaches & my friend had the salmon salad. I took my husband for dinner a few nights ago & we were equally pleased. It was hard to choose because everything looked so good but I decided on the rack of lamb & my husband had the special which was Cajun fried chicken with red rice & collard greens. Yum!!! The atmosphere is warm & welcoming & the staff is friendly & helpful. We will definitely be returning regularly. Try their house made sangria!" -UrbanSpoon Fan
