Description: It’s a great pleasure having you here and we thank you for your continued support through the years. We’ve seen a lot of changes during our time here, and we are very pleased to introduce our new gastropub, Munk & Nunn; complete with a brand new marble bar, state of the art lighting system, and a touch of old world charm. Our custom hand-crafted church pews provide comfortable seating near the bar, and our traditional café style seating is perfect for dinner parties or after work gatherings. If you’d prefer to be outside we’ve got you covered--our sidewalk seating is perfectly shaded in the summer and comfortably heated in the fall. Our goal is for every guest to enjoy all we have to offer, from our unique and flavorful small plates to our famous whole fish and traditional Greek favorites. Quench your thirst with the coldest beer on tap in Philadelphia, or share a delicious treat from our signature cocktail menu. Once you’ve been here, you will always be considered a friend.

The food was good. The Greek salad very tasty as well as the octopus salad. Tons of flavor might be where the name of the restaurant comes in, very zesty. We had the Borbone fish. Also good. I may have spelled the fish incorrectly but sounds like that. I have a couple of complaints though. Even though we said we... More

We're new to Manayunk but have already been to Zesty's 3 times. The Calamari is superb, the Greek Salad has possibly the best dressing I have ever tasted, and the trio of dips, Tzaziki, Taramousalata, and hummus are all equally fresh and delicious. Fresh fish from the Mediterranean, on display in the window is an unusual touch, as is the... More

We had the Chilean sea bass. Awesome. Nice portion size which is a plus. I hate when they give you a little piece of fish. It was flavorful served with mashed potatoes and green beans the sides were also good. Mom got baklava cheese cake. She said it was very good.

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

I've passed this place at least 50 times and never gone in, so on a Sunday afternoon we decided to grab a late lunch., because who doesn't love feta cheese? We were also persuaded by this man who was the maître de/DJ/owner? dressed in a Hawaiian shirt and had been hitting the sauce midday. Obviously, winning me over. The outside... More

I don't know how I've missed this place over the past 5 years I've lived in Philadelphia and come to Manayunk. I made a reservation for 9 for 630 on a Saturday night and we were seated right away as we came in. Know that valet is complimentary; we brought multiple cars and 2 of us didn't see the free...

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

Went here with a friend for dinner and we each ordered one "small plate" to share. I ordered the hummus/pita small plate, my friend ordered an artichoke dish and both dishes were delicious. Service was quick and the outside dinning was very pleasant. Our waiter was very nice but a little clueless. Right after handing us menus, he immediately asked... 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
