My first time here and first off I’m so happy to have more and more Bartow spots. Love to see the growth. This place was nothing short of amazing. Great craft cocktails, steak frites was excellent and even better staff. I watched them get a dinner rush and the staff was top notch. Not sure I’ve seen such great service since before Covid. (We all know dining out has changed since then) loved seeing the boss jump in and help. The atmosphere is also great. Love the outside dining area. Will definitely be back. 🙂 oh yeah and the key lime pie was chefs kiss 🤌🏻🤌🏻🤌🏻🤌🏻🤌🏻

Food is consistent and good. Sound is an issue if the place is busy. Beautiful bar at the center of the room.

My son and I stopped in for a bite to eat while in town for the afternoon. What a great experience we had. The food was delicious, our server was on point with the recommendations. The empanadas and the loaded kettle chips were amazing, my burger was cooked to perfection, and the bread pudding was out of this world. I would highly recommend this place and I hope to visit here again.

We have been to Zest several times now, for food and drinks or just drinks. It's been a great experience each time and we definitely recommend that you check them out. This is a very welcome addition to downtown Bartow!

Great place, great service! Siobhan our server was terrific and made us feel right at home, we will definitely be back. The Havana Salad is delicious and the Steak Frites were cooked to perfection. Berry at the bar was also super accommodating helping pick out the perfect cocktails with endless possibilities! Can not recommend Zest highly enough!

Five stars all around for Zest. Friendly staff, great food, and wonderful atmosphere. Started the night by meeting Peyton. He was our server and was fantastic. Joked around, had a great personality, and was super helpful going over the menu. Barry was the bartender and made top notch drinks. I got a tequila old fashioned and my wife got a hurricane. Both were 10/10. We got the wings for an appetizer. They were crispy, juicy, and had phenomenal flavor. Next was the main course. I got the steak frites and my wife got the chicken and shells. Both dishes were incredible. They had tons of flavor, the ingredients tasted fresh, and they were both cooked to perfection. We ended the night with the chocolate ganache cake. It was delicious and an excellent way to end our dinner. Some other great things about Zest is the owners. Both times we’ve been here one of the owners have come to check on us and ask how our dinner is going. They are friendly and it’s clear they are passionate about their restaurant and customers. They have an excellent staff, put together and excellent menu, and topped it off with a beautiful restaurant with a warm atmosphere. Zest is a wonderful addition to Bartow. Come out and support this local business and you’ll enjoy a wonderful dinner.
