Business Description
Bold flavors, inspired dishes, an intimate setting and expertly crafted cocktails make Vesta Denver's go-to dining destination. Here we celebrate Vesta, the Roman goddess of the hearth, through a menu created by Executive Chef Nicholas Kayser, a Colorado native who's culinary talents enhance our much-loved menu with creative interpretations and beautiful plating. At Vesta, we serve bold, sexy food from a menu that embraces seasonal, fresh ingredients. Vesta's dining room hums with energy from the guests who are drawn in by the menu of flavorful, ingredient-driven small plates and shareable, fire-grilled meats and vegetables served alongside Vesta's signature sauces. A warm, inviting vibe has always been the foundation of Vesta, and our food is complemented by a thoughtful, diverse wine list and cocktail menu offering both classic and creatively contemporary variations made with top local spirits. Vesta's wine list receives consistent recognition from Wine Spectator, and the Sommelier Journal as featured Vesta's barrel-aged cocktail program as a leader in the industry. Vesta has won dozens of awards including multiple years as Open Table's "Diners Choice," "Best 1st Date in Denver," "Best Bartender" and many others, showcasing our commitment to creating an unparalleled experience for our guests. Vesta is the go-to destination for diners celebrating special occasions, hosting visitors from out of town, or in search of the perfect weeknight spot to gather with friends Vesta truly embodies the essence of the hearth - a place where delicious meals are prepared and friends and family gather by the warmth of the fire.

Used to be the best place in town

10 years ago this place was the sh*t!

Droped in recently - food was good but not great (especially for what you're going to spend).

Bartenders were lame, service was ok. The awesome vibe is gone - maybe just a sign of the crummy economy?

Delicious

Delicious! I love the roasted garlic. The sauces were very interesting and delicious with everything we dipped into them. I would go back and dine there again and again.

Great Restaurant

This is the best restaurant that I have been to in town. The food is just excellent and very tasty just a little overpriced, wait staff are quite friendly and the atmosphere is great.

Great Drinks, Overpriced Menu

They've got some awsome drinks, and the food is pretty good. But for the cost, I was wanting a bit more on the customer service. And for the cost and wait, I was expecting the pork to beef differentiated by just a good side sauce.

complex flavors and then dipping sauce?

First of all, the place was cold. The service was okay. I was really surprised that they had a list of 20+ sauces but no one mentioned anything to us about picking sauces. However, I don't know how they could have been enjoyed. Our food (three pepper flank steak and the shrimp and noodle bowl) were so spicy that it was not enjoyable at times. The flank steak was very chewy. I know it's flank steak, but at $30 I'm expecting a dining experience. We decided to skip dessert because who knows how they would try to make dessert flavors complex. Went to dBar instead.

Bottom line, way over priced, too spicy, food flavors too complex for the added dipping sauce, like eating in a meat locker.

Wasn't too impressed with their sister restaurant, Steuben's, either.

The Fresh Fish Company

Since we came back to Colorado 5 years ago,we rediscovered The Fresh Seafood Co. and have been good customers ever since.
The food is outstanding and the personnel is so nice and friendly,you feel like you are at home!The Sunday brunch is unique and very popular.And when they have your e-mail address,they let you know all the specials they can offer and believe me ,that is wonderful.
We enjoy going there more than to any other place and are very happy to have learned about them.

expensive yet nickle and dimed

Went to Vesta Dipping grill last night for a birthday. Party of five. Arrived at 5 because it was the only time available on this Saturday. Ordered all 5 of the ""special"" $2.00 appetizers to see what we may want to continue with. They came: 1- beef satay, 1 -shrimp, 1- 1"" square pork belly, 2 chorizo balls the size of a large gumball and 3 tater tots with a creamy cheese filling. Food cost, maybe 10%. All were good but uninspiring. Ordered 2 nice bottles of wine, Freemark Abbey 2006 merlot over the course of the dinner. They were very nice at at price of $46.00 each.
Ordered beet salads for $10.00 each(they were very good), organic greens salad for $7.00 and another chips and dips sampler for $7.00 both of which I felt were unispiring. Food cost: maybe 10%. Then ordered chicken (leg and thigh) @ $23.00(good), 2 tunas at $26.00(good), smoked duck breast (excellent)for $28.00 and their special korean bbq buffalo at $32.00 (very good). Each came with small plate portions of burned (I guess they were suppposed to be carmelized) vegetables. Food cost maybe 15%. With the salads mentioned earlier priced in, each plate was from $30.00 t0 $42.00. Then the finale: we were brought a ""2 bite"" piece of chocalate moose cake (excellent) with a candle for the birthday boy. Nice touch I thought. After Macallan 18 year for $18 and two Taylor Fladgate Ports for $10 each, we received the bill. Amazingly, we were charged $2.00 for the sliver of chocalate moose birthday cake (which we never ordered). We just spent $415 including tip on dinner and were charged $2.00 for a ""two bite"" piece of birthday cake we didn't even order. A summary would be: good food, the dips are an interesting hook, food is way overpriced and I would hate to think what a full slice of birthday cake would have cost us!

Great food but the service left a bad taste in my mouth.

Heard a lot about this place so we decided to try it, wish we wouldn't have.

The hostess said maybe one word to us as she sat us in Antartica. The server didn't write anything down, so of course when our appetizer came out (Sauce Sampler... pretty good) 2 of the 5 sauces were wrong. When I tried to tell the food runner he rolled his eyes, put his hand up and rudely told me to wait til he was finished. When I told him the marmalade he brought us was supposed to be the Asian Pear Chutney (which I really wanted to try) and the jalapano something or other was supposed to be wasabe cream, he told me 'oh yeah that's what I meant' and walked away.

Now usually this is the point where you get the manager, well since they all wear their own clothes, we couldn't find a manager to save our lives, and since we were left alone with empty glasses and plates for around 25 minutes we decided to just pay and leave.

Later when we discovered we had left our credit card there, we returned to the same icy hostess, who we inconvenienced by asking for our server, she came up and just stood there, didn't even ask if we needed something just stood there, so we asked about the card. She said 'not here, i'd have it if it was.' Walked away.

I'm hoping the whole restaurant was just having a bad day. But their bad day was bad enough to where I don't really want to go back.

On the bright side, I love the idea but think its better suited for a fun atmosphere like CB & Potts or something a little less stuffy. Great meats, and the sauces were wonderful.

Great food!!!!

The food and service was great. We had a party of 7 and the service was pretty quick for such a large party. The food was top quality, but it ended up being a pretty expensive bill by the end of the night. Other than the price, absolutely no complaints. Great place to eat!
