Quite a fancy place, expensive but food was very good. I find the decor too cold, not cozy enough for me.

We recently went to Vero as part of a large group. It was a set menu and I thought it was exceptional. The service was excellent and all the dishes were delicious. Kudos to the chef. We had a great time and will definitely go back!

Good food and service, but nothing was excellent, really. Even if we had a reservation and were there on time, they made us wait quite a bit to be seated. Also, the food and wine menus don't really have a lot of options and it's a bit pricey, also.

I've been fortunate to eat at this restaurant twice now, and every time I'm there, the food gets better. My recommendation would be the sweet potato gnocchi, the spring creek strip loin steak (by the way, the truffle fries are to die for!), and the specialty---the seafood platter. Service is quick and accommodating. Be sure to reserve a table as the restaurant's seating capacity is small and they do get busy during dinner time.
