We went here with another couple and the menu looks small, but the food was amazing. We had the meat and cheese sampler to start and chicken tikka masala was amazing. All others at our table had the beef tenderloin and loved it. The sauces...More

Love the fact that this restaurant was in a historic building, had a 5:15 reservation and within an hour the place was packed. Average martini, but the scallops and risotto was wonderful. I want to go back and try other items on the menu.

Everything and every drink was simply...yes...please. I recommend the bone marrow and the beef tartar. I can't hate if you get the Moscow mule and the lobster bisque or cheese plate (get the homemade breads)

A unique twist to American cuisine and a little French cuisine. It's right off the 16th Street Mall, 2 blocks North on 18th.

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.
