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”!

This restaurant is always excellent. Food is wonderful and the portions are a good size. When they have any kind of special, it is worth going as the prices are a good deal.
The service is good, the staff is knowledgable, attentive and always friendly. Would highly recommend.

What a gem. Wonderful ambiance, excellent food and charming service. James was helpful and accommodating from the moment that we walked in the door. His attentiveness and product knowledge were a breath of fresh air. We will definitely repeat next time we are in Calgary.
James, thanks again for the great job for my wife and I.

A retirement lunch made special by the food, ambiance and service. We both enjoyed the steak frites...tender, flavourful and very well prepared. Our server, Diane, as always went above and beyond. There is a reason that this restaurant had been around for 10 years. Mike, Jenny and the crew always deliver! A favourite of mine; the best in Calgary!

We were celebrating a retirement. The food, service and overall experience was outstanding. Our waiter, James, went out of his way to ensure that the variety of dietary requirements present at our table were met; with no fuss and bother. He recommended wines to compliment our meals and ensured that there was a sparkler in the tiramisu to make the event properly festive. As always, the food surpassed expectations. My opinion “best restaurant in Calgary”!

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!

Had the most amazing experience at Vero. Unknowingly went on the no menu Tuesday and it was exceptional. The chef was also very accommodating to my partners dietary restrictions even though the menu was fixed for this day. Everything was delicious

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.

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.
