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.

Vero Bistro is a quaint restaurant in Kensington. I went for Brunch with a girlfriend and the service was fantastic, the food was great and the prices are not over the top. Would definitely go again to try their dinner menu.

Drinks are very tasty as well :)

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.

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!
