“Great addition to Kensington village”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Chef Jenny has created a wonderful restaurant in the heart of kensington. One of our favorites in Calgary. The sweet potato gnocchi appetizer is one of the best dishes we have eaten in a long time, and the wife is addicted to their bouillabase. Highly recommended!!

“Polished Neighborhood Bistro”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Small neighborhood Bistro gem-tucked away on a busy retail
and restaurant row-easy to miss, but certainly worth discovering.
Limited yet complete menu---evening featured soup d'jour was
a lovely lobster bisque. Signature entrees were Chilean Sea bass,
and lightly curried short ribs---a great finish with a mango cheesecake
styled mousse. Small but intimate enviroment--cushions provided
for chairs--make reservations for sure. Service and attentiveness
was good. Wine list adequate but a little rich!

“YUM”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Food is ALWAYS delicious and well-presented. The pork chop is killer. The service is usually excellent, and the pricing is fairly good. Jenna is great at her job, and the chefs are great guys. I am getting hungry writing this review.
Will always come back! Amazing, amazing food is all I can say.

I have been to Vero Bistro on several occasions and they never disappoint. The food is clearly prepared with love and a welcome attention to detail. Definitely try the sweet potato gnocchi!

“Where local chefs entertain”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

I've been to Vero 5 times now and each time I leave completely satisfied and wondering how food can taste so good. The dining atmosphere is perfectly lit, sexy and comfortable. Chef Jenny is a modest young chef who runs her own kitchen. Each creation is done with such pride and the presentation is beautiful. The Bouillabaisse is a favorite loaded with seafood and a delicious soup base beneath that. The Frites are unusual and addictive - mine had a white chocolate bearnaise for dipping on one occasion. Lamb is always done perfectly. The Sea Bass is absolutely to die for. The seafood platter is as delectible as it looks. For dessert the handmade mango cheesecake is perfect. As someone who watches my carbs I'm always so pleased that most of the menu choices are - intentionally? - low carb. Local chefs entertain guests here and there is no doubt in my mind as to why they do. The dining area is small, so reservations are probably a good idea.
