Vero Bistro Moderne Ratings and Reviews
This is the second time we've been to Vero Bistro and it was exceptional. The food was both interesting and tasted exquisite, and the service was top notch (thank you Alex). My wife is an excellent cook, so we are often disappointed when we go out to eat. Not so with Vero - they exceeding our expectations. We would highly recommend Vero to foodies with a taste for high quality food and superb service.
Really lovely food and attentive service. The only downside is that the venue is really small and the tables are really, really close together. I also always prefer when my winter coat (and everybody else’s!) is hung in a closet rather than slung over my chair. Multiple coats on the backs of chairs contributes to crowding and detracts from ambiance.
This has been our third time at Vero and it has yet to disappoint. We ordered the surf and turf for two and loved every bit of it. The food is delicious and the service was great. It is a small restaurant , but it is definitely a hidden gem. I would recommend making reservations.
My boyfriend and I went to Vero Bistro for the first time yesterday (Tuesday) it was a fixed menu prepared by Chef Jenny with three different choices for the main entree.
We tried the Mussels as well as the Steak & Frites. Amongst that, we had a starter and a salad. And finished with some creme brûlée and ice cream. Each and every bite was mouth watering and delightful.
We didn't have any complaints other than being full when we left :)
Great bistroesque atmosphere, reminded us of Montreal or Europe.
Will definitely come back again!
Without a doubt, the food is outstanding. However, the service is often quite snobby. For example, we recently made a reservation, including a child. We called the day before to adjust the reservation. No problem, said the very friendly woman. When we arrived, there was a mix up about our adjustment. We were made to feel as though we had inconvenienced them (despite a half empty restaurant). Our waiter then only brought coffee to half of the table, and appeared annoyed when we pointed out we all asked for coffee. This is Calgary, not Paris, People!
Food was great but the service was slow. We waited about 30 minutes between each course of the three course meal. Also to add they forgot entirely about our dessert until someone came up to ask If we needed anything else (not realizing that we were still waiting).
The food was good but the service was horrible. We waited 20 minutes for our table, 15 minutes just to get a drink order in, and another 20 minutes for them to arrive at our table. And despite being one of the last 2 tables left at the end of the night (since it took so long to get our food) we actually had to ask for the bill. Disappointing.
Went for dinner with some girlfriends and had a pleasant evening. We shared the charcuterie board which was very nice. I few of us had the steak frites and were not impressed. The steak itself had almost no flavour. The sauce was ok and it was seared nicely but a good quality beef will have more flavour. If I didn’t know I was eating steak, I wouldn’t be able to tell by the taste. And I can’t understand why a chef would serve a steak on top of the fries. Needless to say half the fries ended up soggy. Please serve the fries BESIDE the steak! Our server was very pleasant and attentive. The hostess is unfriendly and barely gives you a glance or hello before seating.
Outstanding dinner from Chef Jenny. Last recent memorable meals were Paris and New York, and this is a gem. Source of quality products, attention to detail absolutely impeccable. Service was wonderful, attentive, and knowledgeable. Absolutely loved it, Stephen.
I don't even want to tell you how good Vero Bistro is! It was hard enough to get a reservation, but if I really tell you how great our evening was, it will be even harder to get in. We went on a Tuesday and had the 3 course prix fixe menu. The price was reasonable, the food was out of this world and the "extras" that they brought us were so unexpected and appreciated. From the Amuse Bouche at the beginning to the macaroons at the end, this was a meal to remember.
The food was amazing and the service was excellent, the wine recommendation was excellent. my only complaint is the service was very fast, our amazing empty appetizers dishes had hardly left the table when i said to my girlfriend “ i hope they give us some time to digest” bang main course was served.. But will go back for sure.
Glad we made a reservation, as it was quite busy with people waiting in line. The food was exceptional - tasty, local ingredients, good portion sizes. I ordered a side of bacon, and it was the best bacon I've ever had. Would highly recommend.
The service was very good. The only reason I didn't provide 5* was due to them being short-staffed.
All the food of the "la panarda" event on Christmas Eve was amazing, lots of flavor and plentiful, to my regret we couldn't finish it all but we took home the left overs, Jodie was excellent as a waitress and her recommendation of red wine was on point, i would definitely go back
We went for a Saturday brunch. Montreal Benny and Vero traditional were very good. Especially the sause to the salad. Gnochi were OK (a bit too salty to my taste). Tiramisu was home-made and fresh. Overall, I like this place and will definitely be back.
P.S. It's a tough area to find a parking, so plan accordingly.
It was a wonderful time we spent. Every visit to this resturant has been consistent with its quality of food and presentation topped with very receptive welcoming service . I would choose to come to this place over and over and every time there is a new sparkle .
