The ambience at Vero is warm and inviting - small cozy boutique restaurant in Kensington. The food was over the top amazing - our guests said it was the 'fanciest, most delicious meal they've every had'. Every bite was amazing. Friendly, professional & helpful service. Definitely a 'must visit' restaurant in Calgary. Thanks to Vero for making the evening so special!

Excellent service, great attention and care during service. We had some dietary restrictions that were dealt with care without degrading the exceptionally prepared food

We reserved a table for four people during the week when it was very cold out, so the restaurant was only about 80% busy and not packed. We had very attentive service. Olive appetizer was surprisingly delicious and I was told the steak tartare was delicious as well (I didn't partake). My steak frites main course was a good size and the meat was cooked the way I asked. All of the wines in the wine list will be a good choice, but be prepared to pay $$ for them. Of course it's a bit expensive (what did you expect?) but overall a very pleasant experience. Tip: as this is an elegant restaurant, dress appropriately (business casual) and it will likely be appreciated.

Very enjoyable. We dined later and so the restaurant was quieter; I suspect it would be much louder and busier of we had been eating earlier.

Everything about Vero's, from the amazing service to the delicious food, is 5 stars. Chef Jenny was able to create both a fantastic vegan risotto and brussel sprout dish that was to die for. Highly recommend!

Food was amazing, had the lamb beautifully cooked and arranged. My friends steaks were perfect....they were surprised about the size.....not stingy at all.
Good wine selection.
Very friendly and knowledgeable female server. She was amazing and fun.
We will definitely be back.
The noise level was moderate and we were able to have good conversations with

Incredible food and service. Well worth the money you pay for the quality of dishes and portion sizes. Chad was my waiter and he was super friendly, helpful, and was willing to take pictures for us.

Would absolutely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

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.
