Another fun evening!

It has been six years since our last visit and Vesta is still amazing. Their dipping sauces are what makes the place, but each dish is also very impressive (bravo on the tuna rolls and mushroom small plates). We highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun night and attentive service.

Overall I had a great experience at this restaurant. The food was perfect, customer service was great and even the color of the interior was great. I would absolutely visit this restaurant again and recommend it to others. Food was a bit pricey, but worth every penny!

Finding a restaurant that can gracefully handle menu modifications to accommodate food allergies is surprisingly challenging. Vesta Dipping Grill is, in my book, a real find. They have full menus for folks with allergies and sensitivities. It's great not to have to worry about slip-ups - at this restaurant, they're careful about all the components of a dish, the sides,...

The Dipping in the restaurant's name refers to the sauces accompanying each dish in addition to the one the dish is plated with. Uniformly, they don't work, but does give the place a hook, like the robbers in Home Alone calling themselves the Wet Bandits. The ambience is Long Bar with rock music, high unfinished ceiling, and roughhewn booths and... More

My wife and I visited for our anniversary recently. I had written in my Open Table reservation that it was our anniversary and we were greeting by the host with a warm "Happy Anniversary". We were early for our reservation and seated right away. Our server, Steve, brought 2 complimentary glasses of champagne. Steve was a wonderful server; attentive, friendly,... More

We visited Vesta Dipping Grill early on a Sunday evening. We were warmly greeted by Sarah, the hostess, who acknowledged our reservation and showed us to our table. Michael, our waiter, immediately appeared on the scene, took our cocktail orders and shared some of the restaurant's history. He was extraordinarily helpful throughout our entire meal without becoming intrusive. My wife... More

Ate on a busy Friday night. Our waiter was awesome, explaining everything on the menu and helping with gluten free options. The meals were excellent, lamb and beef tenderloin. The five vegetable salad was awesome with ramps, peppers and marinated vegetables. The barrel aged bourbon drinks were great. Best meal we had on our short visit to Denver.

Vesta has remained one of the top Denver restaurants for 16+ years. They serve up a variety of some of the best tasting sauces, chutneys, and dips to accompany their delicious, high quality entrees. I've been to Vesta over the years several times all the way back to their opening week. It is a high-end, but comfortable and casual dining... More

Great variety and the waiter was very helpful with selections. We thought value was VERY good unlike a previous review. 3 of us, one cocktail, two beers, 2 entrees and 3 small plates, 2 desserts...tab with tax was $139! Only negatives...it was too dark. People using iPhones to read menu. It was also kind of loud. But wonderful meal, give... More
