Five of us went for a business lunch at Vero's. Diane looked after us as she always does when we go. Today she recommended the steak frites and it was fabulous, we were amazed at the size of the portion. What a great suggestion by our server. We found the atmosphere conducive for uninterrupted discussion while still having everything we... More

If all the other restaurants in Calgary quietly packed up and closed shop...I would not notice. Quite simply, Vero hits the marks every time and all my friends agree. Exquisitely plated food? Yup. Warm greetings when you arrive? Yup. Attitude free service? Yup. Tasteful (and unobtrusive) background music? Yes, yes, yes. Do you crave the crunchiest fries and the tenderest... More

Vero is one of those tried and true restaurants where everything you order is made with care and executed perfectly. I've only ever been for dinner, but I recommend the calamari, the house made meatballs (portion is huge), the bolognese and the steak and frites. Their menu is simple, but delicious. And the place is tiny, so do make a... More

There is a reason why this restaurant is rated #1 in Calgary. Superb food, matched only by the great service. Go visit on No Menu Tuesdays, and you will not be disappointed. This restaurant is a true gem!!

We reserved for 7 people for a birthday lunch get together. We were warmly greeted on arrival, seated immediately, and introduced to our server. We all ordered something different and each of us seemed to think we had ordered the best dish. I had the Eggs Benny with smoked salmon, outstanding! Presentation is excellent and the service was absolutely first... More

Went here for brunch with some friends on their recommendation. For some reason I'm thinking that it's not going to be that good - brunch in this small little fine dining restaurant. Well I was wrong. Everything is made in house. The food was so delish that I ate my whole dish, which I never do. My hubby was hovering... More

Reservation was for 7:30, was seated at 8:05. First lady we dealt with was cold and unapologetic about the wait, second lady was nicer and explained that the reservations before us showed up late and were lingering. That wasn't a good excuse in my opinion - the onus is on the restaurant to keep things moving and if that requires... More

I love this restaurant because the food is always top notch but another reason I go is because, Jeremy, our favorite waiter is superb. My experience is always enhanced because he makes the day so much better by his attentiveness and relaxed attitude. My favorite place to go for breakfast or dinner!
