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.

    We really loved this place! Our group was celebrating our birthday and we ordered a variety of menu items. All were delicious. The locally-sourced charcuterie offerings were delicious, but the portions we quite small.

    The “special” evidently doesn’t apply at a table... but open table reserves a table, not a seat at the bar. Not a giant problem, but if they aren’t going to follow through, don’t advertise it. Every staff member we came in contact with was awesome. Professional and knowledgeable

    It was restaurant week so we had to sit at the bar because they were so busy. Both Male bartenders were friendly and attentive as they could be with the amount of volume they were handling. Was particularly impressed with the charcuterie board and the man who dropped it off. He took the time to explain everything on the board with some fun facts. That made the experience really enjoyable.

    Excellent food from the restaurant week menu. We loved the wine pairing as well. Service was a bit slow throughout the whole night, not sure if this was due to a busy night in general or because we were seated at the bar (with a reservation). Regardless, our food was delicious and we would absolutely go back.

    Vesta was great. We went for Denver Restaurant Week, which is a great deal. Our server was perfect, attentive exactly when we wanted it. The staff accommodated and was aware of a gluten allergy, double checking when there was a question. The food was perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to suggest Vesta as a delicious place to eat in Denver.

    Food was very overpriced for what it was...especially the sea bass and the pork belly app. Sea Bass was very soupy and not flavorful whatsoever. I don’t believe their restaurant week menu truly did justice, as there were other items on regular menu that looked appetizing. Service was above average and ambiance was nice.

    Worried about where to go..? Pick this place & you'll be a HERO!! Amazing food combined with 5-star service!! We sat at the bar, but it was a reserved seating and the experience was worth the hoards of hungry masses starring us down because we made a reservation. No regrets, can't wait to go back to Denver & dine here again!!

    Vesta never fails to impress! The food and service was outstanding and we were so very impressed with the authentic hospitality and welcome from the staff. Vesta has a smart and well designed kids menu beyond the ubiquitous Mac and Cheese. Don’t miss - any fish dish (they have amazing fish and preparation) and the Dragons Breath dessert if you have kids.

    REALLY good food. The combinations were delicious and the chefs didn't overdo with heavy sauces. . . . instead the flavor of each ingredient came through at just the right level. My Mediterranean lamb was especially good, as was the charcuterie board to start.

    We have been to Vesta before and loved it. This time we were sat at the bar and unfortunately the service was awful to non-existent, but fortunately the food and wine we chose was as amazing as always. We were pleasantly surprised by the vegan menu, especially the sunchokes and fungi dishes. Wish they had been a touch larger portions, but they were so delicious we didn't mind. We will be back for sure when they update for seasonality.
