Vesta, the Goddess of the Hearth, is the most beautiful of Roman divinities, bright and pure like the flame that is her symbol. Latins made Vesta a goddess who personified the earth and fire. She presided over the preparation of meals: Vesta was offered the first food and drink. The hearth conjures up visions of domesticity and peace, for the hearth is the traditional center of family life. It symbolizes warmth, security, and companionship a place for dreaming where it becomes possible by peering into the embers, to find physical and mental renewal and a place to discover the secrets of the future. At Vesta, we have combined these themes to provide a unique dining experience. Vesta is simplicity, quality, comfort, life, art, scent, relaxation, taste, sound, and fun.

We had a good meal of excellently prepared bison and beef. Service was friendly and enhanced the evening. Also the cocktails were well crafted, with good wine options for the meal. Disappointed that there was nothing done to guide us to understand the dipping sauces. It was our first time and missed that experience.

This was a great place for a business dinner with five people. The scallops were the biggest hit. Venison was a close second.

The food here is truly amazing and the service is equally as good. I’m a foodie and I highly recommend this joint. Try their Vesta tonic drink for a refreshing before dinner drink.

We had a 10 person birthday party. We were treated very well. All questions answered, bill split accurately and a special dessert for the birthday girl. Food was delicious. Everyone was happy.

I went here with a group of five colleagues, including a vegetarian, a celiac-sufferer, and a die-hard carnivore. There are separate menus to conform to different restrictions and these menus have a fair bit of overlap, so different subsets of us were able to share many plates. And these plates, all of them, were fantastic. Service is attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The ambiance would also be suitable for an intimate dinner or drinks date.

Vesta was amazing! Our server Alyssa was so knowledgeable and on top of everything. Big party of 8 and she didn’t miss a beat. We were blown away by the food and service. The chef de cuisine Steven came out and introduced himself making us all feel welcome as well. They did an outstanding job start to finish

I think the booths are too crowded for 6 people and hard to converse . I wish there was a way to see the room set up or have a suggestion before booking and not knowing what you are getting. Just a thought

Serving a great venison steak with french fries seems ghetto. I asked to switch to a vegetable and all they had were brussel sprouts. The waiter said they had potatoes and what I got were thick potato chip fries.

My first experience at Vesta was a very good one! Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable, the food all seemed great quality and had amazing flavor - the artichoke small plate was my favorite! Also, the charcuterie was a good way to start out (and is a lot of food). If you are looking for a cheap dinner, Vesta is not it, but it is a great option in all other regards!

We went around 6:30pm and noticed the restaurant did not start getting busy until 7:30-8pm, so if you’re going during that time you’ll likely want a reservation.

Been a while since I had visited Vesta. Did not disappoint. It has a fun, energetic vibe. Made reservations at the bar for New years eve. It was very busy and the bartender did take a little time to get to us but was very attentive going forward, The menu was limited for the holiday but everything on it was fantastic. Had drinks and asked for a little time for the food to settle in which the bartender did. Desert was a chocolate melting sphere - which was amazing and was more than enough for two. Was a little rushed at the end but over all a 5 star experience would give a strong recommend.

We tried the revamped and revitalized Vesta on Christmas Eve. Our visit was mostly enjoyable. The service was very good, the cocktail and wine selections were excellent, the atmosphere was lively and fun (particularly so for a Christmas Eve), but the food was just ok. Prices have gone up and are high for what is served. We'll try it one more time, attributing the average food quality and temperature to an off night. For the prices charged, we would generally expect better food quality and food temperature. Thanks to the staff for working on Christmas Eve.

First off, this is still considered one of the best date night spots...the food is not up to par with an establishment like this. It's a bit gimmicky with the sauces(which really aren't too impressive)

We have eaten here several times over the past 10 or so years and it has always been a great experience. The venue itself is interesting and the noise level is manageable. The food has always been pretty extraordinary and this visit was no exception. We shared the lamb tenderloin, the duck fat fried chicken, and the watercress salad, as well as getting the pita with sauces and pork belly appetizers. We finished it off with a very good cappuccino and split a dessert sampler amongst the four of us. It was the perfect amount of food. The happy hour at the bar before you get seated at your table is also something to come for. This would be great for a date night, catching up with old friends or any other kind of special occasion. It’s a win.

It was really really loud. The waiter was nice but would vanish for 20 minutes. There was some inappropriate joking around with some former staff and current staff.
The food was good but it took 45 minutes to get to the table.

Very very slow service. We ended up spending 3 hours at the table, which would have been fine if we had wanted to do so. The staff were very nice and knowledgeable. The food and wine were excellent.
