Did the No Menu Tuesday. All selections that Chef Jenny prepared were really tasty. And the portions were very satisfaying. It was our Anniversary, and we enjoyed the dinner. Very fresh ingredients, steak was moist and chargrilled to perfection and the sea food Tortellini was perfect. The appitizers and sides and dessert were just amazing.
Will definitely come back!

Visited for 40 th anniversary! No regrets, will come back again. Food was excellent, service was terrific, you get what you pay for and if you want quality then you wont be disappointed.
Wine list is 50+ / bottle which is way more than the Keg. We would have liked to spend less on wine but no options existed.

I'm generally not a guy who goes looking for fine dining that often. However, it was my first year wedding anniversary and I found Vero online. When we walked in the entrance it was a little small and we weren't quite sure what we were walking into. We were quickly greeted and shown to our table. That's when I started to realize this would be a special experience. The service staff catered to our every need and were knowledgeable and able to answer any of our questions. Our waiter, James, seemed to always arrive at the table at just the right time and was willing to do whatever was necessary to make our experience as pleasant as possible. Then there was the food! Like I said, I don't do fine dining that often. I was actually intimidated by some of the food but the moment it hit my tongue I was in awe. The way the flavours and textures mixed was what I can only describe as art. It was the best meal I have ever eaten in my life. Considering the quality of the experience, the price point was significantly lower than I expected it to be when I received my bill. I was actually torn about posting this review because I want this place all to myself. However, I have told everyone I've been in contact with, since being there, about it. This is the restaurant I will be going to for all of my future special occasions.

Cozy space. Exquisite food. Top notch service.
For Calgarians: a different take on the usual western culinary culture experience.
Much cheaper than a plane ticket to Paris.
Call ahead.

This was fantastic! The best meal I've had in a long time. The Steak and Frites and amazing and although I would love to try something else on the menu, I will probably order the same meal on my next visit. It was my first time going but I look forward to having my next business/lunch meeting there very soon.

Every visit to the restaurant we find there is always consistency with every dish or even the service.
consistency is hard to come by lately in Calgary's sad restaurant industry.

This restaurant is always going to be in our top 3, date night stops.

Friend’s birthday.
Food is outstanding and the service is great, very attentive without being intrusive. We shared the calamari then both had the steak and frites. I don’t know how they cook the fries but they are so good. Steak was cooked perfectly. Then small chocolate mousse with a mango purée to finish, excellent end to the meal.

When craving a Steak & Frites Dish YOU MUST GO HERE for lunch.
There menus has many creative DELIGHTFUL dishes, as we tried 1 or 2 during a 2 visits in a 1 week period.. BUT steak & Frites is SO addictive it will make you rave about it to your friends/colleagues and return for more.

Vero Bistro is such a treat! A welcome departure from the overcrowded, cafeteria style craft beer restaurants popping up all over the place. Quiet and cozy, you can actually hear your dining partner while you enjoy the beyond exquisite food.

The service is excellent and the food a 10/10. 100% recommend and will be back.

The restaurant is in the middle price range, but it is absolutely worth it. Especially with their Wednesday 3 meal course that is really tasteful. And the staff is incredibly friendly. I would recommend it without thinking.

Made a reservation here for my husbands birthday on a Wednesday and there was a set menu of steak and frits which was absolutely amazing. Perfectly cooked, beautifully presented three course meal with complimentary and juxtaposing bright flavours, so so satisfying. Wonderful service, great atmosphere, thoughtful drink and wine list. The Chef sent us out the veal meatballs to try as it was our first visit, they were flavourful, melt in your mouth. We were super impressed here, and we can't wait to return.
