Went later in the evening for date night. The food and service were outstanding, although a little bit pricey. There’s several interesting specials that are definitely worth trying. Will be coming back for sure.

The service was great! The sangria was the best sangria we've had in North America that was the closest in comparison to Spain. The food was great. Definitely recommend checking this place out.

We love Vero Bistro. It was our anniversary, and our first time dining out in five months. The food was outstanding, the service friendly and helpful and we felt very safe as they have all their covid precautions in place. We look forward to returning, and highly recommend.

Small restaurant, feels very intimate. Service was great. Food was great.
I was having trouble deciding between 2 dishes. I did eventually decide and placed my order. When my order arrived, the server brought me the dish I ordered, and also brought a serving of the dish I debated ordering, so that I could try both to see which I liked best. Such great customer focused service.

It is so good to be able to return to dining here. Chef Jenny has a new menu that has some of the old favourites and some new ones that are absolutely delicious.
The wine list always holds delightful pairings.

Lovely meal with friends. Service was excellent, with good recommendations for starters and mains. Good pace of food coming out in a reasonable but not rushed time frame. A bit pricey so hard to eat here on a budget but worth it!

Very cozy restaurant with great services. It was my wife's birthday dinner and waiter told congratulations at the beginning and that is all, which my wife is very much appreciated since some of the restaurants celebrate too much loudly and my wife often felt uncomfortable. We agreed to come back shortly maybe with our friends.

The ambience is stunning for a date night. We eat out a lot and are therefore very fussy when prices are high and we knew in advance that this would be pricey. We were attracted by the free corkage fee on Sunday nights which is very limited in Calgary. The appetizers which were scallops and meatballs were fabulous. Scallops had so much flavour. We were disappointed in the main courses which were tagliatelle with lobster and the feature steak. The pasta was just OK. The lobster was pacific and very disappointing compared to an Atlantic lobster and feature steak was just ok. I should have ordered the steak frites which other family members have said is excellent. We didn’t have a chance to try the truffle fries which we have heard so much about. The tiramisu had lots of flavour and cappuccinos very good. This was Sunday night which advertised a free corkage fee but we learned that if we opened our second bottle of wine to have red rather than white with the steak, it would be 35$. - this should be advertised on the web site. We just wanted to have one glass of red wine with out steak but a glass for each of us would be an additional cost. Turned us off. I don’t think we will return.
Service was excellent!!!!!!!!

My husband and I split the House Made Foccacia and Veal Meatballs, Traditional Agnolotti of Piedmont, Brussel Sprouts, and Tiramisu. Everything was outstanding, including the service and cocktails to start. We will be back to try the Signature Grass Fed Steak & Frites. The people next to us ordered that and cleaned their plates!

Another exceptional meal at Vero. We have been dining here since 2008 and have never been disappointed. It is our go to place for a meal out that we never have to question the quality. Chef Jenny is constantly changing the menu to introduce fresh and local ingredients and adding her infusion to incorporate ideas from her travels. The service has always been outstanding - thank you Jody for always making us feel at home! As much as I’d like to keep this gem hidden so we can always get a reservation, it is too good not to share. Also their sister restaurant Queens is amazing for brunch and cocktails. I recommend both of them to anyone looking for a special meal out or just an incredible everyday meal.
