This is a dedicated gf restaurant - they even tell you it is 100% gf when you sit down. The food was great! I had the zucchini noodle dish (can't remember what it was called) and it was great. The best part was the dessert, though - the carrot cake is SO moist, and the vegan cream "cheese" frosting was awesome! I thought I'd never have good carrot cake again, but they proved me wrong. They also drizzle a lemony sauce on it and it is so good! I would have never known it was gf and vegan. They also sell local tea from The Queens' Tea - I had the coconut almond lavender tea, and it was delicious. I'm hoping to buy some before I go back home. I definitely recommend this place - my friends without food restrictions really liked it, too (and LOVED the carrot cake as much as I did). Make a reservation online before you head over and you shouldn't have to wait at all.
This place is VERY safe for the sensitive-tummied Celiac. Try the curry!
Delightful! Went for late lunch and for the first time I could order anything on the menu (except for a few non-gluten free beers but they had many gf ones!) My food was wonderfully flavored and filling. Would definitely return regularly if I loved here. I had grilled cheese with veggies in it and a wonderful veggie soup. Bread was like a pizza crust so the sandwich was super filling. Ginger spice cocktail and carrot cake a must have!
Super glad dedicated places exist. This place is very slow with utterly disappointing food. It feels like the niche of gf and vegetarian means they can get away with bad food.
We first found out about this restaurant at the Gluten Free Expo. and have been wanting to try it.. So, last night we tried it and I'm upset we waited so long to go there.. The staff was very friendly.. The food was amazing so many different flavors that go well together. We had appetizers, main dishes, desserts, & drinks.. All of it was so very good! Can't wait to go back.. I will defiantly be recommending this place to everyone I know!!!
Absolutely Wonderful! A must whether or not you have allergies. So creative and delicious.
The restaurant is gluten free and has lots of dairy free options. The staff was very helpful and the food was amazingly good. We had the brussel sprouts appetizer and the hearty dinner meal. It was a nice environment for us to have dinner.
Delicious and completely gluten free. I'm usually not a fan of vegan cheese or dairy substitutes, but I've loved all of their stuff so far!
I wish I could give this place ten stars! You have to go to this place if you are anywhere near! We were driving through on a cross country trip and were already excited to just find a dedicated gluten free place. The food was out of this world amazing! We both got grilled "cheese" (daiya) flatbreads with tomato curry soup and carrot cake. All vegan and corn free too! Almost the entire menu is also corn free and vegan. They also cook with coconut oil! Great quality produce and the grilled cheese was the best I've ever had. Carrot cake was super moist and the cream cheese frosting was perfect! Huge portions too. Very friendly service, really nice ambience, food network worthy plate presentation and great selection of fresh juices and alcoholic drinks. I would plan a trip back to SLC just to come here in all seriousness. I wish they would come to the Bay Area!
100% gluten-free HEALTHY menu-√ gluten-free beers-√ gluten-free in-house made desserts-√ fun hip environment-√ classiest veg place in town-√ heck yes zest!
Amazing food!! Got the cheese bread as an appetizer, thai sunrise, pomodoro, and carrot cake for dessert. Absolutely delicious. It felt a little heavy for a lunch but was worth it. I'm not 21 so I couldn't eat inside but they happily packed my food to go. Friendly service, wonderful taste. (Also, they do cook with vegan cheese if you request it)
Amazing food, drinks and desserts. I love the friendly, helpful people.
LOVE this place. Grilled cheese and soup was yummy. Followed up with incredible carrot cake.
Service was amazing! Food was amazing! I had to go back again because there were so many options I wanted to try. I went for lunch but could see this as a really nice place to hangout at night. The stuffed mushrooms were delicious. The price was well under, I think, for the quality of food.
Great gf restaurant! Fabulous food and service.
So, so good! I've been several times now and everything is delicious. It is so nice not to have to worry about cross-contamination. Don't pass up dessert! I have had the carrot cake and the goat cheese tart. I have been back several times just for the goat cheese tart.
Agree with Catlion! I thought price was reasonable due to specialty products.
Funky little joint just out of a seedy part of town. Vegetarian with vegan options and really nice GF menu. I had the eggplant parm with pasta -- absolutely delish! GF carrot cake from City Cakes rounded out a perfect meal. A bit pricy IMO, but totally worth it for the fine quality of food and atmosphere.
Can you imagine going into a restaurant that is completely gluten-free, where you don't have to worry about what's on the menu? That is the happy experience that dining that Zest offers. I must have asked our server three times about items on the menus really being gluten-free because I was in disbelief. :) The food and drink selections are fantastic. I had the baked zucchini and cheese as well as the black bean and chia sees sliders. Everything was good, although I wished there were salt and pepper shakers on the table in case I wanted a little of either. The service was great and I'm definitely going back!
Absolutely love this restaurant! Amazing food, fun atmosphere, super staff and owner! I will be back!
Loved it!!!! Cheesy bread bites are AMAZING, everything our group ate was awesome, and get dessert!!! YUM
Great gluten free vegan restaurant and bar. The carrot cake is the best gf cake I've eaten! Everything we've tried has been excellent.
It's so refreshing that everything is GF. We had the BBQ stir fry with brown rice and the portabella mushroom. Both were great, but the carrot cake with cream cheese frosting was excellent! We will eat there again.
Awesome. Fresh. Gluten free! I loved it. They have dairy substitutes, and although I eat dairy, I tried their cashew cheese. It was fantastic!
Blown away. Everything we tried was seriously amazing, and the staff and owner/manager were incredibly friendly and helpful. Really excited to have found this place and can't wait to go back. Really fun atmosphere too. And the desserts are to die for. On top of a 100% gluten free menu, everything that has dairy is marked with an asterisk on the menu so it makes it so easy to order.
The service was extraordinary and the good was delicious! Not only this but they have great cocktails and a DJ Friday and Saturday night! Best place for girls night out or a great date night!
