Absolutely divine! My girl and I enjoy dining out and experiencing new restaurants we’ve never been to. Vero was my birthday surprise and wow were we impressed! It’s chic, comfortable and has a great atmosphere. Our server Chad (fellow foodie) treated us so well, suggested...favourites from the menu and had perfect wine accompaniments! We enjoyed: olives, bruschetta, calamari, gnocchi, meatballs and the surf & turf. An exquisite dining experience and is truly Mediterranean! This is a special place- great for date nights, foodies or just treating yourself to one of Canada’s best dining experiences. Of all the thousands of places we have enjoyed this is in top all time! Chef Jenny is very talented, strives for excellence and her menu is always amazing! Chef de Service Michael offers warm welcome, impeccable service and a perfectly selected wine/drink list. Vero is a dream team of culinary success! ***rated as one of the Top 100 Best Restaurants in Canada*** I would comfortably state Top 10! Vero is more than a restaurant it is a destination...More

Ordered the dinner for 4 take out special last night and the food is amazing! Everything was top notch. Wish we could dine in but because of this pandemic we had no choice but to order take out. The price was super reasonable and the...portion size was more than we expected. Even with it being take out, it was still super good! Will be looking forward to seeing the great dinners for take out this place has to offer!!More

Haven't been here in many months due to covid but decided to get the takeout diner for 2. Salad, lasagna, Osso bucco w polenta mmm. Brussel sprouts in a curry sauce may sound odd as a side but trust me, it was all delightful. Looking...forward to our next time. My wife & I think Jenny's food is outstanding for a very reasonable price.More

Its has been some time since we eat at Vero due to the pandemic. The food and service was exceptional. We ordered the seafood platter and it was to die for. More sea food than two people could eat. It was prepared very well and...plated with care.More

Vero Bistro is my go to place for special occasions. I had my 30th birthday here as well as anniversaries. It’s the one place I know that I don’t have to worry about what food is being served. I know it will be good and...it always has. The staff there are so personable and for years now, I keep coming back here and leaving with a great feeling. They make you feel special here. Both the food and the people. I was here for my anniversary with my boyfriend and chef Jenny and chad who waited on our table, made the whole experience amazing. My boyfriend whose first time it was at vero bistro is now a convert. He noted that the playlist was really good.More

We saw Vero's ad for their thanksgiving takeout dinner special and we decided to order because the menu looked fabulous and reasonably priced. Each item was packed very well, generous portions and tasted so good! Food is slightly as always!

Went for dinner with my family. It's was only okay. It's not a bad restaurant, but it's also not great . Lamb was good , Pasta was average at best and seemed overpriced to me. Seafood stew was okay , maybe even a bit below.... I won't come back , Calgary has much better option then thisMore
