Zest has really good food at a really good price. It is in a strip mall and has expanded twice so the flow is different. The staff has for the most part been there a while. Pasta dishes are great. Steaks are good. For some reason they put their salads on small plates so they are messy but none he... More

Went with 5 other adults - each of us ordered something different. The hamburger wasn't real good, the filet was good but very dry. Food was so-so but pricey, not sure we'd go back. The veggies were good ...

Take a trip off the strip to find this gem. You'll be glad you did. Watch them prepare your food in the open kitchen. Fresh ingredients skillfully seasoned and prepared. Great flavors to satisfy you taste buds. You can pay twice the price elsewhere in Vegas for food like this.

Zest used to be "Off the strip"...we loved it before and we love it again. It looks bland and unassuming in a Southern Highlands strip mall...but don't be fooled. James was a great server and the filet and rigatoni dishes were delicious with plenty of food and a reasonable price...make the trip, it is worth it

This is where all the "in the know" locals dine, and for good reason. The menu is diverse, the wine selection decent, although limited, and the bar staff know how to make great cocktails. One of the best Old Fashioned I've tasted in the west. The food was delicious, and reasonably priced (for Las Vegas). It's definitely worth the short... More

The atmosphere is very cozy. We had the lightly fried shrimp and the bacon wrapped prawns for appetizers with a couple drinks. They were both so good that we ordered each one for a second round!

We first went to off the strip perhaps 6 years ago when it first appeared on Trip advisor. The meals have always been hearty and more importantly really good. The pesto with salmon was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant
