Just in town for a quick business trip but wanted to check this place out. It was quite packed on a Tuesday night because of Restaurant Week so sat in the bar area instead. The tzatziki shrimp entree was wonderful with all the chef’s recommended sauces of apricot chutney, curry, tzatziki dipping sauces. To finish off the night, the creme... More

We were served by Michael C who was incredibly helpful explaining the different sauces and combinations that were available. We both had the lamb which was delicious and had asked Michael to recommend sauces which he did and complimented the meal perfectly. Even though the restaurant was busy we did not feel rushed (which we sometimes do in US restaurants... More

Heard about Vesta from a vegan friend who was very impressed with the one vegan selection in this meat-centric restaurant. The menu choices are fairly basic - a couple of steak/meat choices, a chicken entree, a fish selection and the aforementioned tofu dish. Every entree and appetizer is accompanied by a minimum of three different sauces. While the chef offers... More

Very interesting menu with multiple different dipping sauces, some selected by the chef, or you pick. Found the whole menu very appealing and preparation was excellent. Highly recommended.

We could have filled up on just the bread and garlic they serve before the meal, it was fantastic. The pita bread and dipping sauces are a must and trust your waitstaff to suggest additional sauces if you cant decide. Our waiter, Sean (sp) was fantastic! We both had the BBQ Tofu which was very good (wish they had more... More

Vesta is a fun restaurant with a unique concept. First of all, this is not a fondue restaurant. The menu consists of 8 or 9 main dishes but the thing that makes the restaurant are the diping sauces. Some of my favorites over the years have been Miso, Wasabi, and a variety of fruit chutneys, but really, they ate all... More

Vesta Dipping Grill has been around for a long time but I'd never been there until my daughter and I went to celebrate my birthday. Excellent food for every course was enhanced by extraordinary service from our waiter. He helped us select cocktails that were creative and to our taste and answered all our questions with just the right amount... More

We had one of the best waiters that we've ever had. We are frequent diner outers and the service and the food were extraordinary. My wife had the scallops and I had the filet. The scallops were prepared beautifully and the Filet was every bit as good as Ruth's Chris steakhouse. The sauces made each bite different and that was... More

Went to Vista while travelling to Denver this week, after a local suggested it. AMAZING. The service was above and beyond anything I have ever experienced. I ordered the 'Queen Bee' cocktail which was delicious, as well as the salmon that was phenom! I wish I could remember the name of the people working Friday night, they were truly exceptional!...

With lots of unique items on the menu and their wonderful complement of delicious sauces, the restaurant scores high on the exceptional dining experience scale. We took out of town guests who are big foodies there and they were wowed as were we. The atmosphere is chic casual and the friendly service is expert--everything our server recommended was a hit....
