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.

This is one of our favorite places to go. Our son and new daughter-in -law had just eloped and we wanted to take them out for a unforgettable experience at Vesta. We got there a bit early and had drinks at the bar which always has great signature drinks as well as mixologist. I recommend " The Armada" it's soooo good. Once we moved to our table, actually we asked for a both, they are so very comfortable and great for conversation plus the seats are leather tooled and beautiful. Mike was our waiter, he's been with them for sometime now. He is nothing short of a class act. The entire staff is well versed on all the different appetizers and food selections as well as where they have arrived from. There is not a bad dish on the menu or menus depending on whether you are vegetarian, have food allergies, or an array of other special meals. They are very accommodating. It's the perfect size place to dine. Not too small and defiantly not to big with great ambiance. Great people, great drinks and wine, fresh food. Check out the menu on-line.

I love Vesta. I've celebrated many birthdays there. The staff always goes out of their way to say happy birthday. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and offer top- notch service. Food is fresh, inventive and delicious.

I think my only 2 complaints and reasons for looking elsewhere are: 1. Noise level. I don't know if this can be helped, but my family and I had to yell and repeat everything since no one could hear anything over the noise. 2. Prices. They seem to keep creeping up, while portions get smaller. I don't think 4 scallops are worth $40, yummy as they are.

One last minor complaint - I used to get a choice of dessert on my birthday, now I get a tiny piece of brittle. It just seems chintzy and greedy after we spent over $200.

Thank you for the years of great food Vesta, but I think I'm moving on.

This is a fun gem in the LoDo area. The building has character, the cuisine is creative (try the charcuterie platter!) and what made it is the fun and engaging conversation with the staff--all of whom were great! Highly recommended for happy hour-great specials in the bar!

Sat at the bar for quick bite before a concert. The had our spots reserved and they were all super friendly. We were able to get a happy hour charcuterie and cheap beer. The pepperoni melts in your mouth with a bit of a kick. It also had a wide variety of cheeses from hard cheddar to soft blue. Perfect pre-show spot.

Night of Billy Joel so it was a Hugh pre-concert rush. Food took a bit long due to the concert which was to be expected. The entire staff did an amazing job getting everyone in an out and the food prep and quality did NOT suffer from the rush. Our waiter was especially understanding in getting everything pulled together and making recommendation so we could make our concert. Sorry I don't know his name but a big shout out. Will definitely return when we have some time to kick back for cocktails and relaxation before eating.

The food is average. May be it’s just our taste but nothing we tried was great and most wasn’t even good. The service was pleasant and it was packed and popular so we may be in the minority.

We brought a client and friend from Boston to Vesta. He and my husband had been when the restaurant first opened as Vespa Dipping Grill. This was my first visit.

We all agreed that the food was outstanding, though some of the portions were on the small side. The pork belly was delicious, but overpowering in the pasta vongole.

Two of us ordered glasses of wine and the pour was less than generous. I've never been served essentially a double shot of wine before. We actually thought they were spitting the two different glasses between us so that we could try a taste of each, but alas, no second round appeared.

The big disappointment was with the service. We arrived at 8, and there were plenty of open tables. With no situational awareness, the staff kept trying to clear our plates while we were still eating. They interrupted conversation to take away about half-full plates of food. We were rushed, perhaps to close the restaurant early on a slow Friday night?

Was looking for a place with stellar food, and an ambiance that was nice but not fancy. Nailed it on all counts. And, great places to walk to before or after the meal.

Was expecting to celebrate a special occasion but it wasn’t recognized. Appetizers were good but several of the steaks came out blood red. And it took well over an hour for the food.

Vesta was absolutely worth it! The food was amazing and servers friendly. We loved the chicken, scallops, octopus, seasonal market menu, sour beer, and desserts! We even were given a complimentary drink to try which wasn't on the menu yet(amaretto black tea mixed shot.. SO good!). Our servers were awesome and excited to give us our food and to see how much we enjoyed it. Will definitely recommend to anyone in Denver!

After our date night, we head over to Dairy Block. Perfect night!

We came here for our anniversary and our server was Jeff, he was great! We were greeted with a champagne toast and he made wonderful recommendations and took great care of us. Unfortunately the kitchen was very slow the night we came in so we were there for over 2.5 hours. We were enjoying ourselves so it wasn’t a huge deal but still was quite long. The food and the sauces are amazing! The kitchen delay won’t deter us from coming back.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Vesta, especially the Alaskan Halibut, which was delicious. My daughter got the tenderloin and unfortunately, it was fairly average - a little chewy for the price (however, we have had very good beef there in the past, so may have just been a bad serving, so I hate to make a blanket statement about their beef). The service was outstanding. We will definitely return to Vesta in the futures, although probably stick to fish or chicken for the best experience.

We had a PERFECT evening at Vesta! We were sat right away for our reservation, every drink was delicious, the staff worked together as a team and made our experience smooth and most importantly- the food was incredible. We both ate every bit of our plates...even the basic chicken dish was made into perfection. This place is absolutely worth your money and time. Plus, Secret Sauce is an awesome company to support.

What an incredible place! Very unique but INCEDIBLE food! The service was superb from the time I called to make the reservation. We are from out of town and needed a place to take clients. The Full Monty Charcuterie and cheese platter was to die for, as well all the large plates ordered by everyone. You definitely will not be disappointed.

Vesta is our go-to restaurant to take out of town guests. Have always loved the many selections, multiple menus and ample dipping sauces. Our first thought when we were given the menu this time was, “Where’s the rest of it?” Not a big menu this time and we were initially disappointed. But, the food we ordered was delicious, the service was outstanding and our guests thought it was good. They were not as enthusiastic as all of our previous guests we’ve taken to Vesta. It did not have the same wow factor with the menu change and limited market specials, but it was very good.

Vesta is our favorite place in Denver. We live 8 hours away and make sure to go once each trip. They never disappoint and didn't this time either. Excellent food, excellent but low key service. A little pricey but well worth it.
