Never fails to please

I've been going to Vesta for years. And in a town like Denver, longevity is something that is rare. One might think that a restaurant that has been around this long would become "long in the tooth" particularly in a city that is becoming a recognized leader in creative cuisine. But I still love... read more

Every time I travel back to Denver I eat at Vesta. The food is fresh and the small plate choices are great to mix and match to make an entire meal. The bar is equally as good with an array of specialty drinks and craft beer. I have always had great service until this visit, which was disappointing. Our waiter... More

I've been here several times. The food and service are outstanding. I usually have the scallops, but I have tasted almost everything and several specials. I love the whole concept.

Thinking of having a romantic night with your special someone? LOOK NO FURTHER. I contacted Vesta initially to request a private table to give my fiance his wedding gift, which was of a 'personal' nature (wink wink, nudge nudge). The manager, Eric Dutton, responded promptly and was incredibly helpful in that he let us make a reservation where we showed... More

I chose this restaurant for a birthday celebration after wanting to eat here for over a year. It was worth the wait!! My group of 4 arrived about 15 min early for our reservation and offered to wait at the bar since we were early but we were told they were waiting for us and our table was ready! Thought... More

Loved everything we tried. Wasn't sure 3 dips for each entree was really necessary but it provided variety. Found that we really preferred the sauce on the plate to the three additional offered. Knowledgeable staff and friendly. Will return!

We chose this restaurant because of press for a birthday dinner for 6 people. Birthday was noted in the reservation, and at the time of verbal confirmation with the hostess on the telephone the day of the dinner. Instead of the open booth table in the back room which is quieter and visually appealing, we were placed in the cramped... More

OMG! We loved this place! I have eaten at a lot of great restaurants and this is up there with the very best (Blackberry Farm in TN and a restaurant in Fiji may be the only places I liked better). Everyone should be required to order the Chinese BBQ Pork Belly app. Our server, Shawn G, recommended it and I... More

Theres a good selection of main courses-however the dips don't really add anything to the dishes. Seems expensive for what you get, very noisy atmosphere.

Great service and food in the heart of Denver's downtown. Their cocktails are unique and very tasty. The server was very helpful in helping us select the right sauce for our entrees. The combination of entrees with the sauces makes this place great.
