This was one of our favourite fine dining restaurants in Kitchener. The owners were incredible, atmosphere amazing...wine and food outstanding. Unfortunately, it has closed and it will be converted back to a church. Verses, you will be missed

Versus although high end and the food was good, it was not value for your dollar. Too little for too much, however this is redundant now as versus has closed and no longer in business!

Went there for an Anniversary dinner. the wine, starter, entrée and dessert were excellent!!! Near the end of our dinner we were told that the sold the church, back to being a church. I said they need to keep the chef and staff and open again elsewhere.

One of Kitchener’s most renowned restaurants is now closed. Verses Restaurant on Victoria Street North served its last lunch and last dinner on Sept. 27. This saddens me immensely as it was truly a wonderful place to eat. The owners took such pride in their food and their service - every detail was always perfect!! I wish the owners health... More

I've reviewed this restaurant in the past but I am compelled to write one more review. The review will feel like an obituary but I am hopeful the owners will find a new location and once again please the residents of KW with great food again. We dined one last time tonight, their second to last service. Everything about this... More

Love this place. It's my choice for my birthday dinner. The atmosphere in this refurbished church is one of elegance and refinement and the food does not disappoint. Portions, as in most upscale restaurants aren't huge but you can fit in appetizer, dinner,dessert and wine...which is good. Don't be in a rush to eat dinner here, just soak up the... More

Great food and atmosphere but definitely not if you're on a budget. Service was excellent as well, very friendly and accomodating.

Deb and the team provide an amazing experience every time! We have been here many times and always love it - the food and service are absolutely unparalleled anywhere else in the area. Of course, you need to pay more for this level of quality, but it is totally worth it. Go here if you want to impress some guests,... More

I have been to Verses many times and have never been disappointed. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. I love that the menu changes seasonally and that they develop unique offerings. I had the scallop tasting as my appetizer. It consists of three large scallops done in different styles. They were all delicious! For my entree I had the Hop-skippy-jump.... More

I went to Kitchener, Waterloo to visit a friend that I had not seen in many years. Never being there before, I could not suggest or decide which restaurant I wanted to go to. As we drove through the town, my friend suggested that we try this place. Verses is an old church converted into a restaurant. She herself had... More
