Was my second trip to Vero and the first for my wife. We were a bit late but greeted enthusiastically and our choice for dinner was obvious (the surf and turf platter) when it was presented. We were very pleased with all the food and it was perfect for two hungry people to split. Will be returning even just for that same dinner.

The service was very good, one of the best we had from the several restaurants we went in. But the food was just okay to not say disappointing. The chef gave us some bruschetta to start, but the bread seems like was sitting in the kitchen for a few days.. as an appetizer we ordered fried calamari/zucchini (which there was any) and artichoke, the presentation was ugly and the flavor was just okay. The fried artichoke was not a nice combination of flavors. Then, the main dish was a lobster risotto that seems to be a safe choice, but there was this corn crema that didn't blend in well at all. No much flavor, a weird combination of flavors to be honest. And for dessert, there wasn't a menu for it and the waitress informed us on the options which was basically ice cream. Quite disappointed with this 4.9 star restaurant.

Quaint little place, very small tables. We ordered the surf & turf for 2. The food was good with the exception of the fries. They were placed beneath the steak and the chimichurri sauce which left them VERY soggy by the time you got to them.
The service on the other hand was a different story. Very poor. Granted they were busy but we only saw our waitress twice. Once to take our order and then to pay.
We had to flag someone down to place our drink order, get some water and then flag someone down to get our bill.
I don’t think we’ll be back. It’s too pricey for that level of poor service.

Chad was serving us yesterday evening for our anniversary, he accommodated us in a quieter area of the restaurant but it still was quite loud given the size of the restaurant. The food was probably the best I've had in Calgary, we ordered the surf and turf for 2 special

Notre réservation avait été faite avant notre départ de Montréal pour nos vacances dans les Rocheuses.
Voyageant beaucoup et ayant l’habitude d’essayer de nombreux restaurants de différents styles,celui-ci avait attiré notre attention.
Dans un charmant quartier, non loin du centre, l’accueil fut courtois et respectait l’heure de réservation.
L’ambiance est agréable et plutôt intimiste au décor coloré et chaleureux.
Notre serveur, Dennis, était vraiment sympathique.
Nous regardions le menu et chacun des plats semblait si succulent qu’il nous paraissait difficile de faire un choix.
Alors, Il nous fut suggéré de prendre le menu 4 services prix fixe qui consistait à prendre n’importe quel choix d’antipasti, de pâtes, de plat principal ainsi qu’un dessert comprenant des portions plus petites que le menu à la carte.
Nous avons donc opté pour ce choix qui nous paraissait intéressant au premier abord, avec le « wine pairing » pour un supplément.
Nous avons d’abord commandé un cocktail, hors « wine pairing ».Mais qu’elle ne fut pas notre surprise de voir apparaître l’entrée avec le vin alors que nous commencions à peine le cocktail.
Faux pas.
Puis, en revoyant la carte et en discutant nous nous sommes questionnés sur la plus value de ce type de menu…et nous fûmes désagréablement surpris de constater que l’addition de chaque plat choisi individuellement à la carte (aux portions normales) incluant le dessert , revenait moins cher que la formule choisie.
Quelque peu incrédules , nous avons fait part de notre observation sans toutefois avoir de réponse ni explication.
Nous avons dû insister afin de comprendre, mais sans succès, en nous faisant dire qu’il y aurait ajustement.
Pour ne pas gâcher la suite du repas, nous avons passé outre et avons dégusté les plats.
Tout était excellent et absolument délicieux!! Sincèrement!
Seule déception est cette impression d’abus quant au prix menu fixe ( avec aucun ajustement à la facture finale)
Ce qui met un bémol à l’expérience.

Great Flavours and cooked to perfection.
Lamb chops were super tender and moist.
Watermelon was the sweetest for being out of season.

We celebrated our first year wedding anniversary with the surf and turf platter. We were pleased to see that there was patio seating available due to the COVID pandemic. Staff and service were amazing. The meal was delicious and a lot of food (we had leftovers!). We were a bit underwhelmed by the flavour of the salad dressing (it was interesting to say the least).

The atmosphere was nice. Our appetizers, wine and service were excellent. Our main course however was a let down. Our steak was chewy and fatty and just MEH. I just expected more of the plate overall. It was ok but slightly disappointing considering my expectations of the venue.

Thanks for dining with us Mark, glad you enjoyed the appetizers, wine and service!! Sorry to hear you did not enjoy the steak..We do use grass fed beef and consistently get rave reviews about the flavour and tenderness, all though it may just be a one off. Not sure if you mentioned it to your server but we would have gladly replaced it with another one or something else.

The lobster risotto and veal agnolotti were delicious but the calamari appetizer wasn’t our favourite. We also enjoyed their lobster bisque very much. They had a great wine list and great service! We will definitely be back! Thanks
