My son and daughter joined me for a get together dinner last Friday night. This restaurant is in the busy Kensington area where parking is difficult to find. (Perhaps thinking of taking a taxi?). We had reservations as 7:30 and were seated promptly. This is a small restaurant and was fully committed except for the reservation tables. (HINT: Make a... More

First time at Vero, drove by and saw the Tripadvisor recommendation. We always like to get 5 or 6 appetizers to test a restaurant and we were very pleased with the results. Lobster bisque and an inspired Caprese (special imported mozza, dates, heirloom cherry tomatoes) were the specialties of the day. We then had the baby calamari and artichoke fritti,... More

Me and my wife went here for dinner and we both had high hopes because of the rating and were not let down one bit. We skipped the appetizer because we weren't too hungry but to our surprise the server brought us a large dish of meatballs compliments of the chef. Hands down the best meat balls we've ever had,...

I had read the reviews and was looking forward to a great meal out with a friend. Tues is the night they throw out the menu and give customers 3 options for mains. We were aware of this and that's no problem. We both had the gnocchi with short ribs. My 'meat' portion was all gristle, my dining partner had... More

Thank you very much for your review. I'm sorry you did not enjoy main course gnocchi. The gnocchi we offered that night as one of the options on the main, it is our signature 'sweet potato gnocchi' which is hand rolled sweet potato pasta tossed in the pan with wild boar bacon, toasted walnuts, gorgonzola with sage brown butter &...

We dined at Vero last night, and to our surprise, Tuesday evening is known as "No Menu Tuesday". The chef decides and we eat! What a meal! Excellent salad, seafood stew and chocolate cake to savor. As an accommodation to my wife's palette, the chef prepared a perfect strip steak with frites. We can see why Vero is highly rated;... More

I ordered seafood stew and a cocktail peach juice. The food was delicious and I was treated an appetiser. Though it was a bit expensive, it was worth trying and no regret.

My husband and I went to Vero Bistro for our anniversary dinner. We arrived with high expectations and this restaurant exceeded them. Our servers were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was superb, both in presentation and taste.

Very nicely decorated with black curtains separating from the street and nice background music. Service was very friendly and efficient. Food is served in a very esthetic way. It was 39$ fixed price 3 course meal. Mushroom soup was interesting. My NY steak in marinade was superb. My wife had seafood stew which was awesome. The place added free meat... More

On our second visit the server recognized us and recalled my wive's wine and like true european restaurants he provided a "snack" breaded cheese "cigar" - in a cigar box! He reviewed the menu with references to Chef Jenny's food experiences in other countries that inspired her creations. The flavours were exceptional. Highly recommended.
