We had the best server with great recommendations. The atmosphere was wonderful for a date. Cosy and warm.
Good cocktails with high quality spirits and a nice wine list. The post dinner grappa aged in whisky barrels was exceptional. The menu had more seafood than I would have expected but it was all done incredibly well and the pasta was excellent.

I’d go back again for sure.

First time at Vero and we enjoyed it. Won't be rushing back, but will keep it in mind for the future. While everything was good, didn't think the value was quite there relative to the prices.

I've eaten at Vero four times and each visit has been excellent. In particular, the brunch menu is exceptional! The French toast is one of the most satisfying plates of food I've ever eaten. I'll continue to visit this neighbourhood gem.

We went for "No Menu" Tuesday and were treated to the best Seafood Paella we have ever had! The Lamb Skewers appetizers/salad were very well done. Our server(s) were very patient and friendly--we felt special--they treated everyone in the restaurant like this. It was a bit pricey but well worth it!

took the GF for here birthday. Food was amazingly good, service was great, location was a bit tricky to find parking. At first it appeared to not be open because there was no sings or lights on the front, ended up calling to ensure we were in the right place but were able to get right in with our reservation. Would go again.

The ambience and food were good but was very disappointed in the lack of gluten free, dairy free options as online it says there are.
Having gluten free buns or toast for bennies would be very easy. When I asked abt options the waitress flatly said there wasn’t that option in bennies but she didn’t offer other food options that might please me. For such a good restaurant I expected better service.
When I asked for a tea latte she said she had no idea what that was. Really? I can get this most other places I go. And alternative milks? Everyone does that these days.
We appreciated a free drink at the end as an apology but would have preferred more accommodation to my diet needs.
So, unfortunately, my first visit here doesn’t encourage me to return.😞

Really nice place for fancy food. Likely the best tasting meal I've ever eaten. Approx $170 with tip for 2 people including 1/2 L of wine, appetizer, 2 mains. You do get what you pay for. I left a bit hungry but the flavor stuck with me.. Expect it to cost some money. Make reservations. Underground parking across the street, 2 min walk.

Went to Vero Moderne for the first time last week before an Il Divo concert at the Southern Jubilee. Found the restaurant to be charming, cozy and chock full of ambience. Had delicious wine and an even finer meal! We sampled and shared many items from the menu and were delighted with every bite! The presentation, the flavours, the portions.....everything was superb! The salads were light, crisp, and tasty. The Buratta Cheese, the Black Truffle Arancini, the Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Seafood Paella and Organic Chicken Supreme could not have been more flavorful and delicious!! The service was impeccable. We were a group of five, all our first time at Vero Moderne, all beyond delighted with our experience. Definitely a new favorite spot in the city!!
