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.

I love this restaurant! It's always very good. We went for brunch this time. My friend had the day special that was huge! breaded pork escalope on top of avocado, potatoes, egg. It was very moist and tender. I had the gnocchi mixed with what seems bacon or pork belly maybe, with an egg on top. The maple glazed made the dish a bit too sweet for my taste. But overall I love what the chef is doing and I will certainly go back. The menu choices were fabulous!

We attended Wednesday’s steak night and were surprised that there was an option of a seaf paella. I ordered the steak which was perfect and my husband had the paella which he thoroughly enjoyed. The food was great and we appreciated the extra dishes prepared and presented from the chef. Wonderful experience dining here.

Vero Bistro Moderne is a " must eat" venue if you love food. Chef Jenny is incredibly talented. Her food is as beautiful as it is delicious. Michael operates the front of the house with a quiet expertise that is truly appreciated. Reservations are needed. This restaurant wins awards because the deserve to.

We arrived early and were graciously seated while waiting for friends.
The food was delightful, delicious, generous portions, with free picture worthy amuse bouche!
Pleased to finally get a reservation!
I would recommend they take out two seats from the front section, so as not to be bumped or have to move just so another guest can get in the space.
And my personal hope for the future is that ALL restaurants get quieter, to allow for more considerate conversation.

The pappardelle was amazing. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. The scallops were also out of this world. Everything there is first class. The Chef came out after to greet us and ask us how our meal was. I’ve also been for brunch and their eggs benny is out of this world.

This was the first (and last) time I will be coming to your restaurant. Firstly , it was very difficult to find a parking spot. Secondly, the food I wanted was unavailable as they hsd “run out”. They had a very limited menu, so I ordered the salmon salad. The salmon was shaved very thin and had an overly-strong fishy taste. The salad itself was a very small portion and did not taste fresh.
On the upside, the server was very friendly and always refilling our coffees. The coffee was also quite good.
Unfortunately, it was also expensive for what we got.
The restaurant itself is very busy and loud, but we were still able to have a conversation.
I wish I could rate this restaurant higher, considering the previous reviews!

Very good overall. The only thing that brings down the rating is that our maincourse came out when we hadn’t even gotten half way through our appetizer. Staff was very friendly and helpful with knowledge about gluten free options and slight changes to dishes to accommodate.

We were having a bit of stacation in Kensington in Calgary and we were celebrating a belated Anniversary weekend.
We had booked a table and they were very full. We had to wait about 15 minutes. They gave us a bit of prosecco.
However once seated we were served fairly quickly. We had the calamari with artichoke fritti , it was delicious. I had the special, lamb and gorgonzola gnocchi. Could have done with a bit more cheese. The lamb was cooked perfectly. The pasta with pork bolognese was very good.
I would recommend this restaurant for an evening out.

Food and service was great. the food was brought out with very good aesthetics and very instagrammable. We also got a nice tirimisu desert for my moms birthday. The only thing is that originally I booked on open table and the max amount of people you can book for is 4 people. I wanted to change it to 5 people so I had to call the restaurant to change it. I called 3 times in the span of an hour but couldn't get a hold of anyone and left a message as well and didn't hear anything back. Our other guests were unsure if they would be able to be seated because from my experience Vero gets filled up quickly so they were almost not gonna go. Eventually we were finally able to get a hold of the restaurant and they let us have a sofa spot which accommodated us nicely.
