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.

A brilliant experience for us as first-time visitors. Dinner was excellent by any measure. If you are able, ask for Chris, who is an extraordinary server- both personable and knowledgeable. This is a restaurant that knows what it wants to be...and achieves on all fronts. Craft cocktails compete with any in the city, and the kitchen delivers surprising consistency even on busy nights. Mad props to Josh, who cares and it shows.

We felt very special at Vesta thanks to the attentive service. The experience was very involved, many people served, cleared and checked on us throughout the dining experience. Our dinner was excellent and the dipping sauces were a fun and interesting way to elevate the meal. The dragons breath dessert is not to be missed for a light, tasty and fun dish after dinner.

Excited to try Vesta after hearing about it from my Ski instructor in Utah! It did not disappoint in the least. The happy hour is lovely - and runs later than most (6:30!). The bartender, Kim, is a perfect bar tender - knowledgeable, chatty, attentive to details and helpful. Will definitely be back to hangout with her! Thanks to open table, we got same day reservations later that evening. I order the madras grilled venison - it was perfectly cooked and delicious! My only complaint was the mushrooms added on top - not sure why they were added, as they did not fit the palette of the dish and were rather of putting. Even though I generally love mushrooms, I could have done without these :/ my date also mentioned how there were weird mushrooms in his that didn't belong. Besides this, we loved our food - we ordered the foie gras as a starter which was a delicious Asian take - I was impressed. The ambiance is cozy and dark- very romantic. Love the soft lighting and dim hum. My only complaint is that the seating is uncomfortable and that the tables are too close together. Getting up makes you bump into the people behind you, and I was on 2 occasions pushed into my table by others trying to exit. Other than these small issues, I loved dining at Vesta and will definitely be back - especially for happy hour!

Went on a Saturday night. Ordered two food items and a couple drinks, a bread plate with two of their sauces, which is what they’re supposedly known for, and the paella.

Bread was fine, sauces were average, a tomato jam and roasted garlic in oil. There wasn’t really anything to add the sauces to on the menu besides bread, which seemed super odd considering what they say they’re known for.

My not following their sauce game aside. Asked for the paella without olives. Waitress went to ask if it could be done, totally fine. Except she forgot and actually had to go ask when she came back to take our order. Paella comes. Has olives. Easy enough to pick around, but just a debacle for ordering a total of two things. In the end the paella was average, pretty one note in flavor save for the rabbit in it. The rabbit was quite good. The rest wasn’t awful, but definitely wouldn’t order again.

We were given a dessert because the waitress recognized the order was put in wrong, which was nice. It was baked meringue with liquid nitrogen poured over it. One of the chalkiest things I’ve ever eaten. Baked meringue is fairly dry and then the liquid nitrogen saps any remaining moisture out.

As far as atmosphere, it was an interesting place, just very loud, not a lot to dampen the sound which made talking to/hearing the waitress or my partner pretty difficult. Able to laugh it off, everyone else seemed to be doing fine there, so maybe just a one off experience, but I wouldn’t go back.

This was an amazing experience from start to finish! The service is top-notch, while the food is out of this world. Highly recommend the charcuterie to start. We went for our anniversary and this was the perfect place to feel intimate and share so many delicious foods with each other. 10/10 would go back again.

First time here. Brought a couple of clients. Arrived early and spent sometime at the Bar as one of my party was tied up at work. Kim was fantastic! She was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu and the specialty cocktail list. The food was excellent and very unique but not crazy. We wound up sharing a number of small and large plates. Total price was very reasonable. The ambience is great. Became much busier as the night went on. Wondered why I had not been here before and will definitely return!

A genuinely phenomenal experience. The staff were helpful, informed, and amiable, striking a perfect balance between the time they spend at the table and time they let you alone to enjoy your experience. The food was truly incredible, and worth every penny. This establishment is truly deserving of its amazing reputation, and should be visited by anyone looking to enjoy a great evening out in Denver.

Vesta is a beautiful restaurant with amazing service. We ordered a couple glasses of Pinot and they were wonderful. Our albondigas were extremely salty and burnt. They really lacked in any other flavor others than salt. My husband ordered the filet and it was delicious. My scallops were not great. They were cooked well but the broth they were in was so salty (melted butter broth). The artichokes did not mesh well with the other flavors. The peanut butter mousse treat was superb and the sticky pudding was tasty!

I hadn't been to Vesta in years - when I was last there it was Vesta Dipping Grill. Although they dropped the "Dipping Grill" in the name, they still have amazing sauces. We had The Charcuterie & Cheese platter which was excellent and for dinner we had the Beef Tenderloin and the Scallop Scampi also both great. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was warm and inviting and "very hip!" We're from Parker, so it was fun to go someplace that had such a cool downtown atmosphere. We will definitely go back! Thanks! Anne and Jeff

Outstanding from the service to the food! We had a issue with our table and they and they were very quick to accommodate our requests. Our waiter was a master of his craft and to top it off the entire staff and public was very sweet and accommodating to our two year old daughter. Thank you Vesta for an amazing evening, you're deferentially a recommendation in my book!
