Wonderful food, good wine list, attentive service - perfect for a special occasion. The seafood platter was amazing!
Lovely ambience. Great food and great service! Will definitely come back!
The food was excellent and so was the service. Great ambiance!
Great service. We were able to have a great dinner and get to our evening show on time!
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.
Wonderful cuisine; only exceeded by the presentation!
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.
Service is superb. Seafood platter is unparalleled.
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.
The Bistro does specials on Tues. and Wed. Wed. Was steak/frites, 3 courses for $39. Good value, good food! Our server was very good.
The MOST amazing food I have ever had. My favourite restraunt ever❤️❤️❤️
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 lack of choice was very disappointing. The charge of $9 for green tea was outrageous.
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.
Great little place, great staff and great food! Steak and frits for the win!
We always go for Steak and Frites Wednesdays. The steak is always cooked to perfection and the sauce just goes well with the meat.
Exceptional as always.
Excellent. I am celiac with other food intolerances, Chef Jenny took all into consideration and made an exceptional meal. Thank you.
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.
4 meals And all were outstanding. Tried this place on our lay over in Calgary. Worth the trip from the airport!
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!
Terrific food, bistro atmosphere, team has a real devoted, family feel.
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.
Exceptional service with delicious food made for a perfect night!
I'm not a big fan of the dessert as the combination of mango purée and chocolate just doesn't hit my taste bud. But overall great meal!
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.
Fabulous food.....again! Selection of appetizers was varied and delicious. Main course very tender and tasty. Gelato was the grand finale.
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!
Great food! Big portions! Service was great And very friendly!
Big Taste prix fixe menu was fantastic. Service was great too.
Always delivers a wonderful meal in a cozy setting.
Vero is by far one of the best brunches in town. The service is always amazing.
I have been here many times and love Vero. However my last Sunday brunch there left me a bit disillusioned. I really hope the staff reads this as I will try to be constructive in my feedback. The food quality was excellent but the service was hurried and a bit on the neglectful side. The food arrived when I wasn't even at the table and sat there and was almost cold by the time I got it. Water glasses and coffee were not refilled for a long time. At the end if you use the debit machine there is an automatic minimum 18% too option which left me with a bitter taste. Tipping should be something you want to do not be forced to do. Ironically I typically tip more but to assume that everyone will find your service and food worth an 18% tip is a presumptuous and may be a contributor to the declining service quality? Vero, I really want to continue to love you but please don't let your service slide!
Great experience. Awesome find, hard to spot. Worth every penny
This is a fusion restaurant that is very foody forward and tasty. I would highly recommend it. Went for brunch with a friend on a weekend and had the Meatballs with eggs on top. It comes with a croissant and preserves, and since I am eating Keto, said I didn't need the croissant. They served it with a delicious side salad with beets and seeds. Very tasty indeed.
Always satisfied and surprised with the menu. Great food and service.
Loved being able to make a reservation for a fabulous brunch before the theater matinee. Service was super friendly and the food was delicious. Can’t wait to go back!
We had the caprese salad special to start and it was good but too expensive for $26 or 28 (?) for a salad. For next course, we had the gnocchi and the seafood stew. The gnocchi was really good but the seafood stew was only okay. For dessert we shared the passion creme brûlée and this was the highlight for me, it had amazing flavours. Overall, dinner was good but not quite up to par for the price.
Delicious food and excellent service !
