Lovely meal with friends. Service was excellent, with good recommendations for starters and mains. Good pace of food coming out in a reasonable but not rushed time frame. A bit pricey so hard to eat here on a budget but worth it!

Very cozy restaurant with great services. It was my wife's birthday dinner and waiter told congratulations at the beginning and that is all, which my wife is very much appreciated since some of the restaurants celebrate too much loudly and my wife often felt uncomfortable. We agreed to come back shortly maybe with our friends.

The ambience is stunning for a date night. We eat out a lot and are therefore very fussy when prices are high and we knew in advance that this would be pricey. We were attracted by the free corkage fee on Sunday nights which is very limited in Calgary. The appetizers which were scallops and meatballs were fabulous. Scallops had so much flavour. We were disappointed in the main courses which were tagliatelle with lobster and the feature steak. The pasta was just OK. The lobster was pacific and very disappointing compared to an Atlantic lobster and feature steak was just ok. I should have ordered the steak frites which other family members have said is excellent. We didn’t have a chance to try the truffle fries which we have heard so much about. The tiramisu had lots of flavour and cappuccinos very good. This was Sunday night which advertised a free corkage fee but we learned that if we opened our second bottle of wine to have red rather than white with the steak, it would be 35$. - this should be advertised on the web site. We just wanted to have one glass of red wine with out steak but a glass for each of us would be an additional cost. Turned us off. I don’t think we will return.
Service was excellent!!!!!!!!

My husband and I split the House Made Foccacia and Veal Meatballs, Traditional Agnolotti of Piedmont, Brussel Sprouts, and Tiramisu. Everything was outstanding, including the service and cocktails to start. We will be back to try the Signature Grass Fed Steak & Frites. The people next to us ordered that and cleaned their plates!

Another exceptional meal at Vero. We have been dining here since 2008 and have never been disappointed. It is our go to place for a meal out that we never have to question the quality. Chef Jenny is constantly changing the menu to introduce fresh and local ingredients and adding her infusion to incorporate ideas from her travels. The service has always been outstanding - thank you Jody for always making us feel at home! As much as I’d like to keep this gem hidden so we can always get a reservation, it is too good not to share. Also their sister restaurant Queens is amazing for brunch and cocktails. I recommend both of them to anyone looking for a special meal out or just an incredible everyday meal.

Vero is A must visit restaurant in Calgary. The atmosphere feels like you’re having dinner in a swanky upscale big city restaurant, their food is very unique and ALWAYS amazing and they are priced very reasonable. It is very apparent there is a lot of time and care put into all the details of the customers experience. Thank you again Vero for another fantastic meal

Had the chefs dinner. Flavours were great and pretty good value. The beef/risotto dish was disappointing. Beef was tough and risotto was slightly undercooked. The flavours were still spot on. Service was great, proper timing and the service moved.

Thanks for you review, maybe you were mistaken, the special was Poplar Bluff Beet Risotto with Noble Farms Duck Breast. The risotto we cook is more Italian style which is firm to the bite. Sorry you did not enjoy but hope to see you soon!
