My husband and I had our wedding at Zest and we could not have asked for a better venue. Not only was the location great but the staff, service and food was exceptional. All our guests were impressed. I highly recommend Zest!!

Anushika! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Dorian. Wishing you the most amazing marriage :)

13 May 2017

Absolutely amazing venue for our wedding. Maree was great leading up to the wedding. Sean was lovely - making sure we were well fed and everything was running smoothly on the night. Food was amazing, venue looked spectacular with our minimal adornments. Food stations superb. Wish friends would have their wedding here so we can enjoy more of the food. Loved it.

Thanks for such a wonderful review Alison! It was such a pleasure to look after you and your lovely husband Mark, and deliver your dream wedding. Wishing you both a happy marriage!

I could not have wished for anything better. All our guests raved about the food and said that it was the best food that they have had at a wedding. Very attentive staff that tailored made everything to our wishes. I would give them 10 stars if I could.

Yay Lucy! I am so glad you had an amazing time! It was an absolute delight to work with you both! Happy One Year Anniversary for a week (and a bit) ago! :)

From the moment we met Rafaela Pagkali at the Zest Waterfront Venues - Boathouse at The Spit, Mosman, she made the whole process seem so effortless. The venue was so elegant its was the perfect location. There is a reason why Zest Waterfront venues are well recognised. After the Meal taste testing before the wedding it was evident we choose the perfect venue. The food was just perfect, and the staff to guest ratio was on point. I cannot thank enough to the venue, staff, Rafaela from the Botathouse at the Spit and Raphael from Zest site at Point Piper for providing us with excellent service.

6 Nov 2021

Zest exceeded our expectations a million times over. In the lead up, they were able to postpone our date three times without any hassle or fees and were so understanding with Covid. The venue itself is just so beautiful and warm. The value for money is also incredible! A lot of the styling etc is all complimentary. And the most important thing for us and our guests was the food, and honestly no other venue competes with the high standard of food Zest offers. The thing that sold us on this venue was the food stations they offered. We ended up having a sushi bar & dumpling bar and it was such a hit with our guests & was so delicious. Maree, Rafaela & Martin were also wonderful to work with and no request was too much to ask for them, and they went above and beyond.

16 Apr 2021

Absolutely exceptional! We couldn’t be happier with both the process and the final outcome. Everything was seamless, from start to finish. This was particularly evident when we had to move our wedding date due to Covid-19. Importantly, Maree did an outstanding job with communicating with us and acting professionally throughout the entire process! Maree acted promptly and was a pleasure to work with. Overall, our guests had a great time and enjoyed the wonderful food and beverages. Thank you!

10 Apr 2021

The team at Zest were delightful to work with - the in-house decorations and mood lighting package (all inclusive!) were absolutely gorgeous and made it so much easier not having to hire a separate decorator for the venue! The food was excellent and the service on the night was warm and attentive to everyone, with plentiful drinks and canapés flowing through during entree/dessert canapés. Special thank you to everyone at the team for making our day just the way we had imagined it to be!

My Husband and I were married at Zest, Mosman last week and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get married. We were thoroughly impressed from our first meeting and were drawn in by their food. I liaised primarily with Rafaela to plan the event and was assisted by Maree. Both amazing! Unfortunately, we had to postpone due to COVID but Zest were very understanding and helped us move the event with no worries. We opted for the Market Roving concept which was completely unique including a dumpling station with Chef and a dessert stall as well as roving canapes. Zest's attention to detail during the planning and at the event made us feel special. The wait staff were so attentive to us as we spoke with guests and worked the room. All of our guests remarked on the delicious food - the satay chicken is a must!

6 Mar 2021

Just wanted to say we had an incredible experience with zest. Rafaela and Maree were extremely understanding particularly with covid and were extremely prompt with replying to emails etc. nothing was too silly to ask. Martin was wonderful on the night and everything ran smoothly. Food is incredible and the main reason we chose those venue apart from the amazing views. Would highly recommend this venue

I am still blown away by how smoothly our wedding went. A big part of this was thanks to our venue, Maree, and the Martins. The venue is stunning firstly and creates such a warm environment. Maree made the process seem easy and gave us plenty of notice without push to gather ideas/information etc. Communication was great from the get go, especially in the final weeks and days. Looking back I was mostly stressed about how it would all pull together on the actual day at the reception. I honestly had nothing to worry about. Everything was set up to perfection, and the coordinations from both Martins kept us calm and prepared throughout the night. I genuinely felt like they wanted us and our friends/family to have the best time. All the staff were attentive and amazing. Since the wedding I have had many guests tell us it was the best wedding and best FOOD hands down they have been too/had. Also a great decision for us was to get the dumpling station - I still have family rave about it when I see them. Its something fun and unique!. If I have one suggestion for the venue it would be to remove the extra cost per hour if your vendors require more than 2 hours before the reception to set up. Myself and some of the vendors found this unusual but it certainly didn't deter me and all of this information is in the contract. Overall it was the best day/night we have ever had, thank you Zest and team!

Oh Emily, it was such a pleasure to work with you both! Your relaxed attitude to planning made it an absolute joy to create an amazing wedding day for yourself and John. With regards to bump in, we unfortunately do need to charge that additional bump in as it means we can't take a lunch booking :( Wishing you both an amazing marriage!! Maree x

5 Apr 2019

Wow, where do we start? Thank you to Maree, Karen, Martin & Martin for executing so well the best day for us. There was no detail missed. Everyone was in awe with the set up of the venue, and the food, of course - was amazing! Thank you for your professionalism and help with the journey. We enjoyed every moment planning because your team made it so easy. Thank you!

I could not recommend Zest more highly! Such a beautiful venue with a spectacular view, the food was to die for, Maree the event organiser answered every question we had, and the on-the-day co-ordination made everything run perfectly!
