My husband and I shared several small plates and the meat/cheese sampler- we could not have been happier with our experience. The octopus and pork belly were incredible! Amazing, attentive service from beginning to end and beautifully presented, delicious food.

Description
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.
