I have dined at Vero several times and it has always been outstanding. This time, I tried the weekend brunch and it was just as top notch. Chef Jenny is a Calgary gem. Fabulous Eggs Benny and my partner had a Skillet. Both were creative, layers of flavor, beautifully presented and primo.

We enjoyed the specialty "Flavours of Venice" Sunday dinner. Every bite of this four-course feast was sensational. Wine pairings were excellent and they even allowed us to make a substitution. Staff were welcoming, efficient and accommodating. They did everything they could to make our anniversary dinner special and memorable. A great choice if you are looking for somewhere you won't feel out of place whether you are dressed up or more casual.

The food was excellent, I am just learning that good food is worth the money so it was a bit more than I thought it was going to be, but I would absolutely go back again . The staff was excellent. Parking can be tricky but it's Kensington. Pretty much everyone there was going to a show after and the staff was very aware of making things happen to accommodate this. 5*

This is our 3rd visit and everytime has been a delightful experience. Having enjoyed dinners previously, the creativity associated with weekend brunch menu was at a world class level. The innovative way traditional brunch selections were prepared and plated was a pleasant surprise. Flavours were fused in a way leaving one to want more. The server Alex was informed and extremely pleasant. A hidden gem!

The food was tasty and the he croissants were superb. The only thing I had issues with is that The mushroom fricassee didn't state it had hollandaise sauce on it and I don't bode well with hollandaise. So just a clearer description would be ideal on the menu.

Very disappointed, had dined there before, wonderful experience, food and service. It is as if it was a different place, upon arriving assigned a table, after short time given a menue, then waited 10 minutes for a server to approach us to asked if we have any question. Did not ask if we would like a cocktail, he appeared to just want the food order, not the friendless experience.
The main courses was something you would get at Earl’s over cooked over spiced.
Do not thing I will return.

A guest from Vancouver was “wowed” by the surf and turf offering! Three of us enjoyed Chef Jenny’s unique interpretation of this classic dish. The seafood, including lobster, prawns and halibut prepared in a garlic butter sauce was succulent. Paired with Vero’s signature steak frites, Alberta lamb chops with risotto and tender meatballs, the feast was complete. An enchanting crepe and light as air tiramisu made this an even g to remember. Service was, as always, knowledgeable, attentive and personal. Our guest will return home after enjoying Calgary’s “best”!
