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.

I went with a lady friend before our New Years celebration. Dinner was very good. Our server was attentive without being intrusive. I had branzino, which was prepared perfectly. My friend had a vegetarian moussaka which she really enjoyed. We have Zesty's on our list for a return visit.

True, it was a Sunday evening but when we walked into a totally empty restaurant warning bells should have gone off. That being said, it was a mixed bag and thus a mixed review. Our server, Jenna, was fantastic. She could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Warm bread was accompanied by a garlic olive oil dipping sauce that was, if you like garlic like we do, superb. We ordered two entrees, Shrimp Glyfada (Extra jumbo shrimp, sauteed with olive oil, garlic, shallots, ouzo, Greek olives, feta cheese and tomatoes, over rice pilaf) and Pastitsio, a Greek version of lasagna. The shrimp dish was great, the pastitsio not so much. The cinnamon and clove flavor was overwhelming and was really not to my taste. We finished up the meal with a generously sized piece of baklava, but it was obvious it was refrigerated and I prefer my baklava room temperature. So you have one happy diner (shrimp glyfada) and one unhappy diner (pastitsio & baklava).

We were in Manayunk in search of good happy hour deals and we tried Zesty's. They had a good selection of beer on draft and hot and cold apps. We tried the calamari, mussels and the hummus. All delicious! The calamari is done Greek way not the typical fried and breaded, so it was different but good. Service was awesome, our bartender was attentive and we swapped lots of stories. Will try having dinner next time.

Service was fine and food was OK. Beer was a little flat. Many children when i was there and they were loud.

Service is excellent. The owner sometimes serves you. The whole fish is considered a specialty and not always available. Moussaka is good as is the Spanakopita. Took visiting family here once and on the next visit they requested to go back.
