Great atmosphere. Was right around the corner of my hotel. We had the mussels, charcuterie, elk stroganoff, and the tenderloin. All was fantastic. Will definitely go back when in the area.

The food here is amazing. The beef tenderloin was cooked perfectly. The greek salad was very good and pretty too. It can be a little on the pricey side for their entrées.

Nice family dinner. Got drinks excellent, hummus trio for starters. Awesome catfish dish, spicy. Don't forget bread pudding dessert.

It's possible that the service was the downer on this trip more than anything else, however I can't say the food stood out in my mind either. The Elk Stroganoff is a specialty and is very good, but it was a hot day and I needed something a bit lighter. The pizza was disappointing.

Where to start? Well, first I would like to say that I've been to Vesta many times over the past couple of years and every time the food and service were spot on. However, this last visit from yesterday was the last time I would ever consider going to Vesta as it was a huge disappointment. Also, to note, all... More

Lucked out getting a table as soon as we arrived! The River Landing area was buzzing with crowds for the day-long, annual Fry Fest (This IS Iowa City and that means football and the Hayden Fry connection this time of year!). One member of our group had been here before but it was a first visit for the rest of... More

Stopped here as we were heading east on I-80. We'd been one other time for lunch, and decided to stop for a late dinner on Sunday night. My wife had a salmon BLT and I had their lamb burger (came with fries). We enjoyed our food and the service was decent (Alexis was our server). The place is located right... More

Met a friend for a glass of wine and dinner. We decided to go the soup/salad/appetizer route. The Corn Chowder was very good, but the temp could have been a tad hotter. Friend had an amazing looking Caesar Salad. I followed with the Beef Wellington Bites, and would get these every time I go to Vesta. They were wonderful. Nice... More

This was the closest restaurant right adjacent to the Marriott and was recommended by the staff at the Marriott. Nice selection of beers and cocktails. I opted for an old fashioned with rye bourbon. Drink was on point without being overly sweet with a generous pour. I had a hand battered pork loin sandwich which was generous in size accompanied... More

Good service, great food and a wonderful atmosphere. I had the sea bass and it was wonderful. Full of flavor and paired perfectly with the vegetable melody it's served with. Not a speck left on my plate. Will be back for sure.
