Good place to get together for dinner

Great staff and great atmosphere. The entrees are pretty much OK and I liked the walleye and watermelon salad. There isn't much offerings around this area but you cannot go wrong with Vesta

Second visit here yielded inconsistent quality and taste. Do not order the sweet potato "burger". First of all we have no idea why they call it a "burger". Second it is very disappointing (read "horrible"). Pizza was good... stick to that. Our waitress had no clue as to how to keep a customer happy or any response to my displeasure... More

Ate here and wasn't overly impressed. It wasn't bad just OK. The service was a bit below average. I did like that they let us have small samples of tap beer we wanted to try.

Clean, comfortable atmosphere with partially open kitchen. Loved the sweet potato burger. Smoked shrimp guacamole was a great appetizer. Also had the watermelon salad and Iowa corn chowder - both delightful. There is definitely a chef back there with a creative flair who knows what she (or he) is doing. Oh and don't miss the white peach sangria!

A very nice restaurant. The food was outstanding. My wife and I split the Hummus appetizer and the beef tenderloin and both were excellent. The tenderloin was probably the best beef I have had in recent memory. Super tender and terrific flavor. The Hummus had three different samples and all were very good. They also had an excellent beer selection... More

I've eaten at Vesta several times and been pleased, except for the Elk Reuben sandwich, which was dry and unappealing. Today our book club met there with mixed reviews. Service was good and we were a table of eleven; our drink orders were taken right away. Prices were reasonable for lunch. I had the egg salad sandwich on a croissant...I... More

I had lunch with two different friends, just a week apart. The corn chowder was so tasty that I ordered it a second time. On the first occasion, I paired it with salad, and on the second I had the truffle egg salad on a croissant. Our service was prompt and efficient, although we were surprised that we were never...

Ate here three times while staying at the Marriott. The children's meals are good. The lunch specials are tasty and a deal but the service each time was Slow...I mean, can't get a second drink until they bring the bill...slow...unresponsive and more than apathetic. Patience required if willing to try this place.

Had dinner at Vesta last night. I had the fresh pea soup and the beet salad with salmon. The pea soup was more a vegetable soup. Delicious. The salad was right sized and the salmon perfectly cooked. Beer selection very good.

This is a great little restaurant in the trendy area of downtown near the river. We ate here twice and had excellent meals each night. They offer a great selection of craft beers and the food is excellent. The burgers and pizza were very good as were the appitizers. Service is very efficient and good. The place is not loud... More
