Good food nice restaurant.

This is a good restaurant it's nice inside my only complaint is that it's a little spendy. Good place for a date night.

We had dinner in the bar area. The wait staff we very attentive. I had the bay shrimp salad, which I had to send back. The pine nuts tasted old and the salad was drenched in blue cheese dressing. The second salad was a better; however, the pine nuts still tasted old. The lettuce was not very crispy. Was not... More

Though this restaurant has great atmosphere and good food, I can not ethically eat there because the owner frequently belittles his employees in front of customers.

This was our first time in, took my wife and kids, the staff was friendly, the decor was nice, especially around Christmas they had decorations and lights throughout. The kids menu was good and everyone liked the food. Prices were not bad for a nicer Italian place. Adult menu has plenty to choose from. We will definitely return.

I was on a 19 week business trip, I'd hit up every place to eat in town and the lady at the front desk of my hotel suggested this place. I was delighted from the crayons on the table, to the wonderful food and ambiance. Owner treated guests like old friends and was passionate about the food, which showed in... More

This place has some of the best food in Yakima. We always enjoy bringing friends and family here. The prices are a little high, but the food is definitely worth it.

Outstanding service and food. Initially went for the Italian but ended up getting the Halibut special. Nicely paired with wine from a good selection

Bottom line: My wife like Italian food, I do not. Yesterday, as a kindness, I agreed to eat dinner at Zesta. I ordered something simple, the fettuccine Alfredo with Italian sausage. It was, hands down, one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. The chef here really, really knows what he/she is doing and does it well. The sauce... More

We were in town for some wine tasting on our anniversary weekend. We wanted a nice place with romantic ambience. After reading reviews, I chose this restaurant. I asked for a quiet corner if possible, knowing it would be a Saturday night and it would be full. When we got there they had misplaced our reservation but sat us right... More

I was thrilled to find a place with an extensive gluten free menu. The cedar baked salmon is a favorite. The portions are generous. Just having relocated, my only complaint is they're closed on Sundays.
