Vesta Dipping Grill

Updated 10/01/2013

Fodor's Review

Both the remodeled building and the interior space designed to house this modern grill, named after Vesta, the Roman hearth goddess, have won national architectural awards, and it's easy to see why: the sensual swirls of fabric and copper throughout the room make diners feel as though they're inside a giant work of art, and the clever, secluded banquettes are among the most sought-after seats in town. The menu is clever, too, and the competent grill masters in the kitchen

put out expertly cooked meats, fish, and vegetables, all of which can be paired with some of the three dozen dipping sauces that get their inspiration from chutneys, salsas, mother sauces, and barbecue. The wine list is as cool as the clientele.

Definitely worth a visit

Liked the ambiance, we hit just before peak (6 PM), and it wasn't as noisy as I expected. Service was good (the waiter even offered to bring out another dessert if my friend didn't like it, when she was waivering on what to pick). Highly reccomend getting the tortilla chips with the 5 salsa's as an appetizer. Main courses were excellent... Only dissapointment was that the dessert only had a choice of 3 dipping sauces :)

Jazzy Dining Experience

We tried the Grill and thought the food was excellent. The cheese plate was beautifully presented with berries and walnuts. I had a steak which was perfectly cooked and tasted great with the roasted corn sauce. A nice touch were copper pipe style napkin rings and galvanized steel menu holders. The restaurant had a decent kids' menu although when we asked for ranch dip for the fries we were informed, in a snotty way, that "we don't serve ranch."

Okay, fine, but be on notice that if you have a kids' menu, the kids want ranch! Other than that, it was a fun experience.
