Amazing chef, and the meals are superb ! The magical sauces for dipping are available upon request, I always know I will be treated graciously, and served an incredible meal at Vesta. I do miss the bread and roasted garlic !

Vesta has a cool vibe about it. The large circular tables are convenient for large parties. They offer a range of sea & land options, as well as varying meal sizes. Creative crafted cocktails as well.

We went on a blizzard-like night in December. Warm welcoming place. Great meal! Everything we tried was super. Enjoyed the smaller plates and main course. Small desserts weer wonderful - Caramel Corn and Peanut Butter Cup. Best dinner we had on trip to Denver!

Love the fact that this restaurant was in a historic building, had a 5:15 reservation and within an hour the place was packed. Average martini, but the scallops and risotto was wonderful. I want to go back and try other items on the menu.

Everything and every drink was simply...yes...please. I recommend the bone marrow and the beef tartar. I can't hate if you get the Moscow mule and the lobster bisque or cheese plate (get the homemade breads)

We had a great time. We discovered Vesta from the Travel Channel. Our serve Kye was wonderful. The whole crew works as a team which is super nice to see. We had the meat and cheese tray for a starter. Then we shared the scallops which were divine! I wish we had gotten our own since they were so good.... More

We viewed this restaurant on Trip Advisor as we are out of towners. When we tried to book it came up unavailable - after sending an email they accommodated us at our requested time - very polite on the phone too.

After a very mediocre meal for restaurant week 2 nights ago in a restaurant that was very good in the past, I was a little nervous for this meal. In fact, it turned out to be very good as it had been on previous occasions. All dishes were delicious and the dipping sauces were fun to try. The waiter was... More

We ate dinner at Vestas back in October. I have several dietary restrictions (gluten, corn, and dairy) which can be very difficult to accommodate. Our waiter, Steve, was phenomenal! I was totally confident that he was checking with the kitchen and knew his food. Corn hides in sauces and seasonings and drinks and everything. If you don't have to avoid... More

Great setting in an old building. Service was great. Appetizers (small plates) were excellent especially the pork belly. Main courses were also very good. Nice wine list as well. All around wonderful meal.

Description
Bold flavors, inspired dishes, an intimate setting and expertly crafted cocktails make Vesta Denver's go-to dining destination. Here we celebrate Vesta, the Roman goddess of the hearth, through a menu created by Executive Chef Nicholas Kayser, a Colorado native who's culinary talents enhance our much-loved menu with creative interpretations and beautiful plating. At Vesta, we serve bold, sexy food from a menu that embraces seasonal, fresh ingredients. Vesta's dining room hums with energy from the guests who are drawn in by the menu of flavorful, ingredient-driven small plates and shareable, fire-grilled meats and vegetables served alongside Vesta's signature sauces. A warm, inviting vibe has always been the foundation of Vesta, and our food is complemented by a thoughtful, diverse wine list and cocktail menu offering both classic and creatively contemporary variations made with top local spirits. Vesta's wine list receives consistent recognition from Wine Spectator, and the Sommelier Journal as featured Vesta's barrel-aged cocktail program as a leader in the industry. Vesta has won dozens of awards including multiple years as Open Table's "Diners Choice," "Best 1st Date in Denver," "Best Bartender" and many others, showcasing our commitment to creating an unparalleled experience for our guests. Vesta is the go-to destination for diners celebrating special occasions, hosting visitors from out of town, or in search of the perfect weeknight spot to gather with friends Vesta truly embodies the essence of the hearth - a place where delicious meals are prepared and friends and family gather by the warmth of the fire.
