“Fresh and delicious byob”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

A stylish and casual byob. The menu features a nice selection to appeal to everyone. Freshness and quality ingredients are the prevailing influences on the food. The chopped salad was crisp and with the right of dressing to let the ingredients shine. The mini lamb kebabs were presented in a surprisingly elegant way with a side of yogurt sauce. Cod was a special and recommended by the owner....he was right and it was fantastic! Super fresh fish on a bed of deliciously prepared vegetables. We splurged on the pistachio gelato and it was a decadent treat. Bar seating offers a great spot for solo dining or people watching. Would definitely return.

“Wonderful dining gem in Tenafly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Have had several memorable meals at this great restaurant. From the very stylish decor, to the very affable proprietor Hal, to artistic presentations of the meals, this place is a real find. The menu has just the proper diversity of offerings, something for everyone but not overwhelming amount of entries. All do the food is fresh, not frozen, and this shows through the delicious flavor. Portions are generous and we always have leftovers to take home. It is also BYOB so you can bring and enjoy your favorite wine, have a fantastic meal, and end the night with a reasonable bill.

Worth seeking out this restaurant for an enjoyable meal!

“GREAT FIND!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

We have been following Hal & Carol for many years. Their original restaurant was
in Tappan, N.Y. and we frequented it often.

As with their new restaurant, Zestt: food, ambience, smooth music, has followed them to Tenafly. We have eaten here several times since opening, and, as always, food is 5Star. We especially love their meditteranean dishes; my favorite is shrimp with couscous, always prepared to perfection...we love their chopped salad and fabulous desserts. A nice plus to Zestt is a BYOB, a nice plus for wine lovers like us who enjoy bringing their own wines to compliment a great meal.

We will be back this weekend!! See you once again Hal & Carol..Stephie & Ron Stern

“Delicious food and pleasant atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

The food was absolutely delicious and very well prepared. We were greeted pleasantly and led to a comfortable table. The restaurant is narrow but holds enough tables to seat a number of people. Absolutely everything we ordered was very good. It is not a cheap place to eat but you feel the food is worth the price .
The minor drawback is that sometimes Tenafly can attract a crowd of people who feel entitled. Those people are demanding and can detract from the otherwise pleasant ambience
