“Exquisite food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

If you want a meal that is lovingly prepaid, reasonably priced then Vero is not to missed. The menu reads well, the food looks fabulous and the tastes are divine. A MUST have is the Passionfruit Creme Brulee. If you like a tart Lemon pie, you will love this.

The staff are very friendly and they make an excellent coffee. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience. We will be back on our next visit to Calgary.

“Must go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

This is one of the best restaurant in Calgary. Reasonable price and excellent quality of food. Must try their grilled salmon (it is seasonal) and mango cheesecake. Friendly waitress and excellent service. It is a small restaurant and reservation recommended. A bit noise if you try to chat and table setting is pretty close

“Delicious!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We can tell they use very high cost ingredients -- veggies are very fresh and meats and seafood are juicy and tender. The taste is just prefect. Not many restaurants are kids friendly anymore.

“Chef's Tasting Menu on Thursdays”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I made a reservation for a Thursday evening afer reading the reviews on TA and looking at Vero's menu online; I was excited to try some of the interesting creations. All the available street parking stalls were taken by 6:00, so leave early. We parked in one of the pay lots nearby. On arrival, we were greeted warmly. The restaurant is very small and unusually decorated....overall, I wasn't impressed with the decor. The staff, however, were friendly and polite. After being seated, we were informed that Thursday night is the Chef's tasting menu for $59 per person. Apparently I had missed that tidbit of information on their website. The two mains were salmon and duck breast, neither of which I am particularly fond of. We politely excused ourselves and walked over to the Italian restaurant next door. We'll be back...just not on a Thursday.

“Great spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Classy little bistro with lots of flavor! The place is tiny...but well worth it! The portions are a bit small..but that is just part of the whole bistro experience. I highly recommend the gnocci! Yum!
Check this place out!
