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.

Made the reservation for the wrong time and they graciously accommodated me. A great experience as always and the best place to take anyone visiting or just anyone who has never been or really anyone at all. 10/10 would recommend!

Our waiter was rude the entire experience. The food was meh. But definitely overpriced. The manger and bartender were fantastic. Otherwise it would have been one star.

Kye was our server, he was extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu. His suggestions were spot on, and the duck and beef tenderloin were UNREAL. Hands down, the best I’ve ever had. We also got coffee after our meal, and it was so rich and smooth that every coffee I’ve had since then is disappointing.

Service started out fine but as the restaurant began to fill-in it became very slow. Prior to it being too busy, asked for a drink menu and never received one. I asked a different waiter and he got us one but this was after 20 minutes. When we were done eating and waiting for kids desserts, it was about 30 minutes between finishing the food/having dishes cleared and receiving dessert.

This place does not disappoint! The dimly lit restaurant is perfect for a date night or special celebration. The dipping sauces were delicious (highly recommend the sauce sampler). Ordered a couple appetizers, the albóndigas on polenta were delish! The lamb entree was so tender it fell off the bone! A bit on the higher end price range but it’s worth it for a delicious and unique meal!

The four of us started with some of their featured cocktails. Fresh ingredients enhanced the flavors and presentation. Then we ordered the Full Monty! All the meats, cheeses and sauces were described at our table and were delicious. Two of us ordered the lobster chiopinno and two of us ordered the scallop dish. Both were delicious and we ate every bite. The service was great. Very friendly and efficient. We will be back for sure.

Extensive and interesting wine list. Great tapas including tuna tartare. The wait staff checked in frequently - perhaps a bit too frequently as I felt a bit rushed at times but they backed off when we have them cues that we wanted to take our time and visit with our friends. Everything we ordered was spectacular. Don’t miss the toffee dessert!!

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.
