Pasta was undercooked but our server was very professional about it. The other dishes are really good, so maybe avoid pasta dishes and try everything else

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.

We came back to Vero Bistro after having spent a year abroad, mostly in Paris. And we found that this restaurant still ranks among the very best that we have experienced - anywhere. The cuisine is unique, thanks to the inventiveness of Chef Jenny - and this is a restaurant which offer truly great value for money. We were there for the steak frites the beef was outstanding. The pasta was also excellent.
The location is great, and parking is usually easy. The ambiance is quiet and welcoming. Superb!

We had brunch here on Saturday morning and all of the food was amazing. All of the details were well thought out including the heated milk for the coffee and fresh orange juice. It isn't the cheapest but everything that came to the table was high quality and the perfect portion size. The service was also excellent, nobody waited for water or a coffee refill, it was exactly as it should be. We liked it so much we came back for dinner the following week.
