On the Vsphere client go to "Datastores and datastore clusters" select the datastore you want to check space utilization, click on "Virtual Machines" and you should be able to see provisioned and utilized space for each VM

You can click on the VM and see the Summary Tab>Resources. You will see three things
Provisioned storage
Non-shared storage
Used storage

Assuming that you have provisioned all the storage(hard disks) from one datastore, This will show you total provisioned storage for that VM out of that datastore.

If you are using Thin, The Used storage will show the actual usage. If using thick all the space allocated will show up as used.
