The food was very good and portions very generous. We had an earlier reservation so it was quiet at the start and when the tables filled the noise level was moderate. The food and plating is photo worthy, with many patrons (including me) taking the perfect IG pic when it arrived. It didn't just look good, the flavours were incredible. The only consideration was that I had to bring a girlfriend here, instead of my husband as there was not many gluten free options obviously available.

Great experience to return to Vero same excellent quality and service. We are so happy for them that they made it through the all the challenges with COVID. We could not decide which entree was better - the lamb chops or the tagliatelle bother were excellent. Hope to return again for dinner and brunch.

This was our first restaurant dining since Covid began. We shared the Chef's Special, a combination of steak, lamb and seafood. It was outstanding with a delicious blend of flavors. The wait staff was outstanding as well. They made sure we were comfortable and enjoy ourselves. They were attentive but not "in your face" - we received just the right amount of attention.

We dined at Vero Bistro Moderne early evening on a Saturday with another couple. We were welcomed and seated promptly. Our server was excellent- helpful, courteous and efficient. The food was superb, and each of us ordered different items on the menu. The summer salad and veal meatballs as starters were delicious and there was ample to share. Our choices from the list of entrees were lamb chops, sable fish, lobster risotto, and tagliatelle with shrimp. Each of us was pleased with our choice. All in all it was a great evening!

I took my daughter here for dinner to celebrate her Grade 12 graduation. There was no official grad dinner for them, so I decided to take her out. From start to finish every bite was divine and the service and ambience to our liking. It was a wonderful night.

We have not been back in a long time but we have been ordering from Vero Bistro for curbside pickup during rye pandemic. The quality is always excellent to superb. Enjoying the great food in the restaurant again now is a dimension above the quality of the take-out. The food was exquisite (sable fish, lobster bisque, calamari, radicchio salad, and more), the service was perfect, and the ambiance friendly and relaxed.

Very nice dinner with the family. Service was exceptional.
Had only been open for a couple of days since COVID restrictions lifted.
Understandably, menu on the limited side but very fresh ingredients and prepared/cooked deliciously.
Staff was attentive. Drinks, appetizers and main dishes served in nice timeframe.

We enjoy fine dining and really were looking forward to visit this restaurant. The menu and reviews were promising an outstanding dining experience.

We showed up exactly at 5:30pm and placed the order for an appetizer and two entrees in about 10 min. And after that we were literally forgotten. Waiters were rushing back and forwards delivering the pick-ups to the door.

The 2 medium size crab cakes were delivered to us in about 30 min. The presentation were fine though the cakes were pale and defiantly overmixed. There were no such a desirable flakiness in the texture. It was not original, it was almost boring.

Do you know how long we set in front of empty crab cake dish after? 45 min. My husband mentioned, - we should have probably ordered some wine, they would possibly pay more attention to us. But it was the food delivery service that kept the attention of the staff away from the people who actually set in the restaurant. They were just running back and forward with a speed and persistence of the pendulum clock.

45 min of waiting to present us with 2 entrees in a size of food-tasters? We are not big eaters but by 7:00pm we were starving. The BUCCATINI CACIO E PEPE were so overpowering heavy on herbs, especially rosemarine (and I love rosemarine!), you would not be able to distinguish ingredients by the taste, only by the texture. My husband (a huge Italian food fan) could not even eat it. AGNOLOTTI OF PIEMONTE ‘BOLOGNESE’ was outstanding, but literally not enough to feed both of us.

We asked for the bill way to fast after the food was delivered and suddenly got a lot of attention. Was it a tone of my voice or the sudden break in food pick-up services. Who knows? We left hungry and angry.

So if you are not ordering wine and overpriced Signature Seafood Platters (we watched a couple of them delivered to people who placed their orders long after us) - don't go. And if you are, hide a sandwich in your purse.

Sad to hear you did not enjoy the experience. Although not perfect we do pride ourselves on providing exceptional service and food. The food may have taken a little longer than usual. As for the Cacio e pepe it's a simple Roman dish 'pecorino & black pepper' we do not add rosemary, and it is a favourite at Vero! Most crab cakes you get are loaded with fillers like potatoes, ours have no potato but rather generous amounts of real crab, and we have many great comments about them.

Overall it was a good experience. The food was fast to come out (all three appetizers at once) with the mains shortly after, so the experience felt a little rushed.

The appetizers were ok, but the mains (both pasta dishes) were fabulous. I guess my expectations were a little higher given the 5 star reviews and price point!
