We have eaten here at least 7 times. Most of those times, the food was excellent. We have had hummus, stuffed grape leaves, various lamb dishes and calamari. The food is fresh, well-made and just plain delicious. On one visit, Zesty's was a little off its game - our hummus wasn't as tasty and the dishes just didn't seem as... More

Zesty's has great food. My husband and I have eaten there a few times, and never been disappointed. However, unless you are an ardent opera fan (which I am not) it seems that every other Saturday night they have live opera music which is so loud it is impossible to have any type of conversation. Great place to go during... More

The minute you walk in you know you are in for a great evening. The restaurant is colorful, crafty, and radiates energy. Our waitress was exceptionally knowledgeable about the whole fish and provided guidance based on each individual’s palate. Any of the fish dishes are terrific or try the wide variety of small plates. Highly recommend for a lively night... More

We were there with two others couples last night for a friend's birthday. We ordered drinks and wanted to make a toast but my drink was not served until we asked the manager to check on it. We ordered a lemon drop martini and got dry martini with a slice of lemon. Needless to say it got returned. Then all... More

Coffee was excellent. Waitress snobby. We got omlets and they were good. I had to get my own coffee. The food and atmosphere and very good, I've eaten here several times over a period of 15 years and generally good Greek food and a good change from your typical American Bistro.

The atmosphere was almost, almost attractive but the neon light strips in the ceiling gave it a diner vibe. Don't get me wrong its much nicer than that, but several touches keep it from being chic or elegant. I'd prefer to eat outside. I had stuffed grilled calamari which was too rubbery. Have had much better. The Greek side salad... More

Party of four, two adults and two kids decided some nice Greek food would be perfect for a Friday night dinner in busy Manayunk. We made reservations. Warning number 1: Bad feeling when we entered the quite attractive restaurant and saw that reservations really would not have been needed. Odd, because restaurants in this part of Philly fill up quickly... More

Just had lunch at Munk & Nunn and I feel compelled to warn everyone about it. We had hummus, greek salad, portobello sandwich, and coffee. I cannot describe in words how bad the food was. The salad ingredients were very old, including dried out cucumber and a stuffed grape leaf in an advanced state of decomposition. The hummus and sandwich... More
