My friend and I went for the Tuesday in March featuring Spain. We had the paella, very good lots of seafood. Small appies to begin with and dessert to follow.
Little pricey but for a one off great taste and lots of food.

Great food and very nice inside. The tables were quite close together and was very loud at times that I could not hear what my fiance was saying while right across from me. That said, I would definitely come back.

Went to Vero Moderne for the first time last week before an Il Divo concert at the Southern Jubilee. Found the restaurant to be charming, cozy and chock full of ambience. Had delicious wine and an even finer meal! We sampled and shared many items from the menu and were delighted with every bite! The presentation, the flavours, the portions.....everything was superb! The salads were light, crisp, and tasty. The Buratta Cheese, the Black Truffle Arancini, the Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Seafood Paella and Organic Chicken Supreme could not have been more flavorful and delicious!! The service was impeccable. We were a group of five, all our first time at Vero Moderne, all beyond delighted with our experience. Definitely a new favorite spot in the city!!

This is a hidden gem nestled in Kensington. Although we've had dinner here before we'd never tried their brunch and we were not disappointed. Service was great and the food was excellent. Everyone had a different dish including the daily special and we all raved about the flavours. Menu is very unique, offering a great selection of breakfast items that wouldn't be found at your run of the mill diner. That said, I found the prices very competitive compared to other breakfast venues in the neighbourhood so because of the upscale quality it was very good value for money. Would definitely go back!

"No menu Tuesday" is not good value for those with restrictions in their diet. Lesson learned.

The food was great as usual. I had the beet soup and the steak with fries, and a great chocolate dessert. Wednesday is the steak dinner for 45$. My friend had the cannelloni filled with lobster. 2 of them, very rich so that was sufficient.
The service was a bit over the top with the waitress coming often to asked if we wanted more drinks.
I like lunch better with the service as it is more relaxing. The chef was also gone that day.. I like when Jenny is the chef. She is original and amazing.

It was my second time here- and unfortunately we had a completely opposite experience to my first time and were a bit disappointed. It started out well with great service and recommendations- but then our server literally disappeared. He dropped our food off and we didn’t see him again for the rest of our time there. Nobody checked on us at all, and it was half an hour before I got someone’s attention. Our glasses (both water and wine) were completely empty at this point. I understand something may have happened with our server but not a soul came by to check on us.

The salmon feature was tasty but VERY dry (my friend had it), and surprisingly expensive. I had the sweet potato gnocchi, and it was quite good but almost cold when it arrived.

We were enjoying each other’s company and weren’t inclined to chase down some attention in a restaurant of this quality. I wouldn’t hurry back.

Me an my fiancé went there for the Valentine's Day 5 course meal. We were late for our reservation but they were more than accommodating, which we very much appreciated. The service was great overall just a couple times the waiter was too busy to follow up with our needs but understandable. Overall the food was excellent and was one of the best 5 course meals we have had ever. The differences in flavors and attention to detail was amazing from start to finish. Only negative was the noise level, as we at times had to really 'yell' to have a conversation. This was the second time we have done Vero's valentines dinner and plan to do more in the future!

Four of us dined at Vero. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Our server (Sean) was pleasant and attentive. Vero was quite busy when we were there so it did take awhile to get our main plates but it was not major problem.

Everything was deliciously seasoned and very well cooked with sauces that elevate each dish to another level of yum! The only challenge is deciding what to order since everything I’ve tried, over numerous visits, had been great!

I have been to Vero a few times and usually sat in the quiet area where the front window is and it was perfect. This time we were given a table in middle of the restaurant and the music speaker was directly above us. I planned to tell my dinner date something very important but had to revise the plan because we couldn’t even hear each other. It was disappointing because I chose the restaurant for this very reason. Although food was excellent but if you can’t carry a conversation which is a part of the experience then you might as well go to somewhere less expensive with less noise for your bucks.

We attended an early seating of their Exquisite New Year’s Eve dinner. Chef Jenny, Michael, Jody and all the staff provided an impeccable service, one of the very best meal we’ve ever experienced. We would love to keep this neighborhood gem to ourselves but everyone should experience Jenny’s cooking. Thank you Jenny for sharing your love of food with us.
