Welcome to Zest!

Temporarily Closed

We are temporarily closed due to structural damage to the building after being hit by a vehicle late Sunday night (7/1/24)

For updates, or if you need to reach us, please call 541-554-5425 to reach Marci.

If you know when you want to dine with us, we recommend making a Reservation in order to entirely skip the waitlist! We will text you when your table is ready – normally 10-15 minutes prior to your reservation time (in case you are hungry early!) and hold reservations for 10 minutes after your reservation time before moving your party to the waitlist.

You can also join our waitlist here from your device when you are on your way, or when you get to the restaurant. It has become standard for us to have a 10–30 minute wait (and sometimes up to an hour) for a table during our weekend brunch hours. We will send you a text when your table is ready and hold tables for 10 minutes before moving down the list. Our two-way texting functionality allows you to text us back to change or cancel your reservation.
