Every visit to the restaurant we find there is always consistency with every dish or even the service.
consistency is hard to come by lately in Calgary's sad restaurant industry.

This restaurant is always going to be in our top 3, date night stops.

Friend’s birthday.
Food is outstanding and the service is great, very attentive without being intrusive. We shared the calamari then both had the steak and frites. I don’t know how they cook the fries but they are so good. Steak was cooked perfectly. Then small chocolate mousse with a mango purée to finish, excellent end to the meal.

When craving a Steak & Frites Dish YOU MUST GO HERE for lunch.
There menus has many creative DELIGHTFUL dishes, as we tried 1 or 2 during a 2 visits in a 1 week period.. BUT steak & Frites is SO addictive it will make you rave about it to your friends/colleagues and return for more.

Vero Bistro is such a treat! A welcome departure from the overcrowded, cafeteria style craft beer restaurants popping up all over the place. Quiet and cozy, you can actually hear your dining partner while you enjoy the beyond exquisite food.

The service is excellent and the food a 10/10. 100% recommend and will be back.

The restaurant is in the middle price range, but it is absolutely worth it. Especially with their Wednesday 3 meal course that is really tasteful. And the staff is incredibly friendly. I would recommend it without thinking.

Made a reservation here for my husbands birthday on a Wednesday and there was a set menu of steak and frits which was absolutely amazing. Perfectly cooked, beautifully presented three course meal with complimentary and juxtaposing bright flavours, so so satisfying. Wonderful service, great atmosphere, thoughtful drink and wine list. The Chef sent us out the veal meatballs to try as it was our first visit, they were flavourful, melt in your mouth. We were super impressed here, and we can't wait to return.

My wife and I went to celebrate a night out and we were not disappointed.

When we walked in Alex Kindly greeted us and showed us to our table. After some questions and hearing the specials we decided to start with the meatballs on a recommendation and they are INCREDIBLE. Seriously! Some of the best meatballs I have ever had.

For our meals we decided to share the Venetian Seafood Stew and the Traditional Agnolotti. I really wanted the seafood stew, but so did my wife, so we compromised and I got the Traditional Agnolotti.

The seafood stew was a beautiful balance between all the seafood flavour and the broth. The proteins of the fish, muscles, clams, calamari, and scallops were perfectly cooked and an absolute treat.

Traditional Agnolotti is a ravioli that was stuffed with veal and vegetables and slow cooked to perfection. I know my wife and I were supposed to share but I quietly ate as much as I could before sheepishly offering up the last couple for here to try.

I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and if you get a chance to sit with Alex, you are in for a special treat.

Overall a satisfactory dinner except for the server who rushed us out of the restaurant by insisting we pay the bill and gave us our coats even though we were not ready to leave . Overbooking their tables reflects poor management decisions!

We had their set menu for dinner which was steak and frites in truffle butter with arugula. The steak was sooooo tender and melt in your mouth that I refused to believe that it was steak. It was accompanied by veal ravioli and sage to start. The chef sent out very delicious meatballs in a marina which was a nice touch. Quite a bit of meat for the entire meal, however, everything was very good. We finished with chocolate mousse and mango purée for dessert. My peach purée drink was a bit on the breakfast beverage side which I don’t recommend with dinner a beverage recommendation would have been helpful. My own fault for trying something new when I didn’t want to drink alcohol. Service was great and I was impressed with the servers memory of the evenings menu.

We had the Big Taste menu with wine pairings. The food was excellent and the wine pairings were great! Service was super friendly and really good. The restaurant is fairly small, so reservations are recommended. It had potential to be a bit loud, but fun.
Highly recommend!!

I consider Vero Bistro “my” neighbourhood restaurant. I have visited Vero many many times, this time at lunch where my friend and I enjoyed the Big Taste Menu. As usual, the food and the service did not disappoint! A shared appetizer platter included sugar pumpkin bruschetta, black truffle bruschetta, shrimp in vodka sauce and meatballs Bolognese. Each of the individual offerings was delicious in its own right, but the combination of tastes and textures was exquisite. Mike, Vero’s affable owner greets customers by name. Diane, our indefatigable wait person anticipated our every wish, including recalling the type of wine I drink. Short ribs, sweet potato gnocchi with a froth of Gorgonzola satisfied us greatly. The ice cream served for dessert was a “just right” ending to a sumptuous meal. Vero Bistro has “got it right”...,Chef Jenny in the kitchen, Mike in front of house, and Diane to tie it all up! My favourite neighbourhood restaurant; the BEST restaurant in Calgary!

Yet another fantastic meal. Managed to hit a Taste of Calgary event- five divine courses, fab service and the usual busy yet efficient and fun atmosphere. Only complaint- web said it was Steak Frites nite, and had been looking forward to that plate all day. Obviously meal was great but went in thinking one thing etc. Regardless- Always a treat to dine here. Keep up the great work!
