Vero Bistro Moderne Ratings and Reviews
second time here and between the steak and fries Wednesday, and the bennies Saturday morning, my mouth was incredibly happy.
its definitely a treat. a very rare treat due to cost, but worth it gor a special day out
Vero is our favourite restaurant in Calgary
Always the best!!!!!!!!
Poor service, not very accommodating, food is overpowered by garlic and you dont taste anything but garlic. Dishes are not as described and as expected at this level restaurant.
Small restaurant. Limited seating. Outstanding in every way!
My favorite restaurant in Calgary. Excellent food. Our server is very professional with excellent customer service. 3 course lunch menu for $25 is unbeatable price with the quality of food and choice that they provide. Chef Jenny ROCK!
We enjoyed the food and the service but would not be a place for a "date". It is quite loud and echoes. There were 2 parties of 4 or more around us and it was hard for us to hear each other.
Food and service was fabulous.
Great ambiance, wonderful steak, good for many different types of occasions.
We had an excellent lunch for a great price. Service was wonderful. Would strongly strongly recommend giving it a try. I have been to Vero numerous times for dinner but never lunch I will be returning.
This place is absolutely outstanding. Their seafood platter is over the top. Service is impeccable.
Great food and fabulous service. A most enjoyable evening!
Great service, great food, very creative and tasty dishes , awesome ambiance
Loved the menu. They had a special truffle menu when we were there and we loved the items. The sweet potato gnocchi was also wonderful as always. We find the food unique and interesting. Service is excellent and even called me when I left my hat there.
Great lunch menu, special was very good.
I had never come for lunch but I strongly recommend!
Will be back for sure.
Amazing food. Creative chef and great staff. Thank you for a lovely date night!
Great food and service! The ambience is cozy and warm although a little cramped.
Will surely return!
This was our second time we have been at Vero. We ordered the meatballs as an appetizer. My husband ordered the steak and I had the organic chicken. The meals were very tasty and tender. Very Good! Dessert was delicious too! We will be back.
Some of the tables are too close to your neighbors.
Very enjoyable despite the computer not putting in my order
I would highly recommend this restaurant. The food was amazing, the service was good too. The only thing that I didn't really like was how close the tables are to each other. I understand the need for them to be as it is a small space. It was definitely worth the drive to get there though, will be back again!
Great service and great food! Vero Bistro never fails for a night out with friends or loved one.
Excellent meal and service. No long waits for food and the food was amazing. Wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu.
We had a wonderful meal - the food was creative and well balanced. Service was attentive and precise. We will go again!
Wonderful steak and frits on the Wednesday evening. Great food and service. Our only concern was that the restaurant noise level made it difficult to have a pleasant dinner conversation. This wonderful restaurant would do better if the seating area acoustics could be improved so it didn't sound like a lively pub.
We were blown away by the food, our server, Jody and our comfort level at Vero! A special place for this food loving couple.
Small, but exceptional dining experience. The interior is small and trendy with an open design. This leads to a fairly noisy meal, but no louder than most.
The service was incredible, as was the food! Recommend the gnocchi appetizer and stuffed chicken main. Didn't go for dessert, but the options looked good and one option was served in a potted plant.
Definitely recommend to any foodies
It was a very pleasant atmosphere. An excellent menu and great staff. Overall couldn't get any better.
Highly recommend this treasure. Food was excellent and staff amazing
Awesome place went here for my birthday. Chef gave us complimentary food dish and dessert. Lovely experience overall.
Love this restaurant, Chef Jenny cooks amazing food. There is a different menu everyday. The food is so good there!!
While the food was excellent, we were a little disappointed not to have access to the main menu as we were quite looking forward to some fresh pasta. We seemed to be tag teamed between two servers who continuously came to the table asking the same questions as each other minutes after each other. This really took away from the overall experience! Furthermore, charging customers for "house water" is the first I have ever seen in a restaurant in North America… Lastly, putting a sparkler in a paid for dessert is not special. The credit card machine should certainly offer a 15% option with this kind of experience, again, the tips starting at 18% is a first. All in all I would come back but I certainly don't understand how this is the top restaurant in a Calgary on TripAdvisor...
Our server was very knowledgeable and gave great recommendations. Every dish that was ordered in our party was excellent. Very happy with this restaurant.
Went there for brunch on a Saturday before going to for a matinee show at the Jubilee. I had the eggs benny with salmon and prawns. It's pricey for an eggs benny, but when you see and taste it, you will agree that it is worth every penny. I enjoyed every bite of my meal. It's great place for a good food in the heart of Kensington. I'm looking forward to enjoying dinner there.
The decor, the service the food...all EXEMPLARY. Acoustics and noise level are not good!! HOWEVER...this is a small thing in the big scope of things!! Excellent job Vero Bistro!!
Overall experience is excellent. One of my go-to restaurant for the ambience and food. They always have a different menu from time to time therefore we can always go back and try different things.
My wife & I had lunch at Vero Bistro this week, while passing through Calgary. The menu is very interesting and the food was excellent. Highly recommended.
Vero Bistro does a wonderful job of packing flavour into food. I'd consider it one of my top restaurants. Servers have always been friendly and the atmosphere is both welcoming and cozy. I would definitely recommend this place.
Favourite restaurant in YYC.
A little slow getting us seated and initially served, but once they got rolling the service and food we're really good.
Fabulous food and service. We had a wonderful evening. One of our guests said it was the best meal they'd ever had in a restaurant.
