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.

The burrata was amazing! The rest was okay, I won’t recommend or go back though.

I love the food. The dinner was beautiful, although the menu is kind of hard to understand in terms of what the unique names of ingredients actually consist of (meat is clear at least).
I ordered the beef tenderloin and it was perfect. I ordered it with the fig sauce and curried basil tomatoes sauce on the side. Just delious.
We ordered the dragons breath for dessert and it was so fun! You literally breath out the cold. We also ordered a sampler dessert and it to was a wonder mixture of tasty treats.
The staff was great and really did amazing with the presentation and explanation of its preparation. That made us feel great on what we were about to eat (even though we didn’t know when we ordered what exactly everything was).
Overall I had a blast and definitely would recomend going. Just don’t forget their sauces and dessert. And small plates means appetizers.

Was not at all impressed with their “autumn menu”.

I am in Denver almost twice per month for business and Vesta is hands-down one of my favorite restaurants! The food is amazing and so creative! So far, the Chicken Tikka Masala is my favorite! My friend had the lamb and said it was the best she'd ever had. Can't wait to go there again to try something new!

This visit was a bit of a disappointment. The menu, which used to be relatively simple dishes to highlight the sauces, now is spice-heavy and the sauces are an afterthought.

My favorite dish used to be a plate of roasted seasonal vegetables, with the set of sauce dishes.

My scallops, and my husband’s steak, were competent. Nothing wrong with them, but a major change in style. The salads were so heavily salted as to be nearly inedible.

Tried out Vesta for a date night and the experience exceeded expectations on all fronts! Food was excellent/reasonably priced, service was FAST, ambiance was perfect. Caught happy hour before sitting down for dinner, A+!!!

We had a 10 pm reservation on New Year's Eve, and were seated in about 10 mins. The service was great, as was the appetizer, both entrees, and a desert. We will definitely be back and will bring others.

My boyfriend and I were visiting Denver and came across Vesta online and decided to try. Had no problem getting a reservation and was in the mood for some new dishes compared to what we usually order. We really liked that there were several appetizer options, small plates as well as mains because we are not big red meat eaters. We ordered the ahi tuna, which was a little too salty for me, but still yummy. Also ordered the cauliflower couscous dish, the pita bread and sauces, cranberry salad, which we both loved and was not over dressed, as well as the falafel, which was probably my favorite. Other dishes going by looked delicious as well and were pleased with the value. We both went the cocktail route and I ordered the Rose sangria, which was amazing! very light, refreshing and unique - I'd go back just for the cocktails.

Sauces and breads were great. Cheese plate was delicious. Cocktails were interesting. Small plates to share were fine.

Vesta is one of the true gems of the Denver dining scene. We've been going for over 20 years and highly recommend it to all.
