Vesta, the Goddess of the Hearth, is the most beautiful of Roman divinities, bright and pure like the flame that is her symbol. Latins made Vesta a goddess who personified the earth and fire. She presided over the preparation of meals: Vesta was offered the first food and drink. The hearth conjures up visions of domesticity and peace, for the hearth is the traditional center of family life. It symbolizes warmth, security, and companionship a place for dreaming where it becomes possible by peering into the embers, to find physical and mental renewal and a place to discover the secrets of the future. At Vesta, we have combined these themes to provide a unique dining experience. Vesta is simplicity, quality, comfort, life, art, scent, relaxation, taste, sound, and fun.

Mike was our waiter and he was absolutely astounding. Almost everything we ate and drank was based off his recommendation and it couldn’t have been better. The experience was fantastic and we will be going back again soon.

Went for our anniversary and had some super tasty food! The scallops were some of the best I've ever had and the beef tenderloin was cooked just right with all requested modifications made for some things I couldn't eat.

The prices are a bit high making it a restaurant for an occasion, but the food overall is very tasty!!

Wow! I work in hotels and am honestly blown away by the fantastic service at this restaurant. Maybe the best customer service I’ve experienced in a several years. Genuine, knowledgeable, timely and fluid throughout the restaurant. Was our waiter amazing? ABSOLUTELY and his colleagues were as well. The fantastic food was an added benefit to the wonderful restaurant. Highly recommend!! I wish I got our waiters name but you can’t miss him he’s 6’6 and excellent at his business.

From the moment I arrived at the restaurant, I felt catered to and taken care of. I am doing the Whole30 diet this month, and the server was able to discuss ingredients and plates that would work for me, or be very close. He never made me feel like I was being a burden, and he even brought me both their gluten-free and dairy-free menus! I felt so comfortable the whole time :)

Beside the great service, the food was phenomenal!! My two girlfriends and I split three small plates and two large plates, and that was perfect. We had shrimp, tuna carpaccio, tenderloin, and scallops, and every bite was devine. I will definitely be bringing my husband back here as soon as possible!!

tapas are unique. the waiter offered guidance in food choices and drink choices as well. Our entire party of 6 found the birthday party visit memorable and fun. We were able to taste all of the dipping sauces, the favorite being the ghost barbecue. The waiter knew exactly how to time the food. cocktails are unique and well balanced with the menu. exquisite service as well.

The restaurant was very loud, making it hard to visit. Service was slow. The food was okay. I ordered the venison and it was cooked perfectly. My date ordered the duck medium, but it came out medium rare, at best. We sent it back and they did cook it some more but we go no sort compensation for the problem. My meal got cold while I was waiting on my date's meal to be fixed. They only validated $1 on parking. Probably won't be back.

While I enjoyed the scallops a great deal, and my friend liked her venison, my husband was unable to find anything on the menu that appealed {he doesn't eat seafood} and had only the charcuterie board. Also, the bread was not worth what was charged. I would suggest perhaps something that would appeal to a meat-and-potatoes person, so we could all enjoy a meal out.

The 5 of us had 5 different entrees(venison, scallops, lamb, beef tenderloin, and vegetarian.) and shared bites. Every one of them was excellent. We also had 4 small plates to share and they were excellent as well. Although there are dipping sauces that are very good, none of our entrees needed the extra flavor. The drinks and wine were good and the service was excellent!

Our bartender Karey was amazing and extremely knowledgable about the menu. Everyone who helped us from our waiter to our food runner were superbly knowledgable about the menu. Our waitress Emily was friendly, knowledgable and attentive. The food was absolutely fantastic. Even their sauce tasting plate had intensely complex and delicious flavors. We have not one complaint about it. Definitely a place you must go in Denver. It was the best restaurant I have ever been to.

A very nice option for Tapas, although more veggie options stuff would be nice. The Sommelier was spot on. He spent time going over our tastes and landed on a terrific wine to complement our meal. It was New Years Eve, so hard to say if the volume of the venue is normally this energetic. The service was impeccable.

Mom daughter dinner; we had a blast, laughing and story telling.

Went through a lot heath-wise this week and was looking to get away. Emily was great and had so many good recommendations. Thank you Emily for recommending the dragons breath!!

Vesta was the perfect get away. They offered a lactose free menu with a restriction conscious staff. I greatly appreciated being able to trust them...a rare feeling for those preparing my food these days. Even better, Vesta did not sacrifice the flavor on my dishes. I couldn’t believe what I was eating was compliant!! It was so good! Such quality!

Our meal was absolutely impeccable. My wife is what I like to call a "creative" orderer as she has a boat load of allergies. Tori, our fantastic server, was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and patient with her which went a long way in my book. This is the second visit we have had to Vesta in the past 3 months, and the whole experience never ceases to amaze me. Amazing staff, incredible wine list, and impeccable food. Vesta is my number one favorite restaurant in Denver.

I have had so many great meals at Vesta -- we have spent Christmas Eve there every year for the past five or six years -- so our most recent visit was an even bigger disappointment than it might have otherwise been. We were seated in the front windows, right by the front door, and space heaters provided did little to prevent us from shivering throughout the meal. The waiter was friendly and competent, but we waited for long stretches for him to reappear (maybe because we were seated away from the main portion of the dining room), so that the pace of the meal was ruined. The small plates we started with were all solid. Three of our four entrees (duck breast, lamb, and the special , paella), though, were terribly under-seasoned and essentially flavorless (the exception was my cioppino, which was delicious, although served while I was away from the table and lukewarm by the time I got back. Could they really not have seen there was a person missing and held the meal for three minutes?). Between the blandness of the food and the excessive wait to have our table cleared, we weren't interested in even trying dessert. I'm really sad about the way the evening turned out -- this has been such a reliably wonderful spot for years. I hope it was just a one off, but we may not return to find out.

We had a stellar visit all the way around. The graciousness of the host answering my call to say I was running late started our evening out well. We visited on Christmas Eve to celebrate my birthday. We decided to sit at the bar and Kim and team made our experience memorable and festive.
The food was phenomenal and our made with care drinks were terrific too.
Restrooms were clean, parking was on the street-meter.
We couldn’t have asked for a better time!

Food, server, and manager were awesome. Chef came out to double check on allergies. Attention to detail was great. You really do not see this level of service that often anymore. Hostesses were not very welcoming or hospitable. Looking past the initial welcome everything was wonderful.
