Was Celebrating a birthday at Vero and we were treated so well.
First off the food was very fresh and so flavourful, Chef Jenny's team in the kitchen really deliver well thought out and scrumptious food.
The service however was very professional but warm and genuine which I appreciate. You can really tell the staff really love what they are doing.
Passion in the kitchen and in the dining room, it can't get any better!
Thanks Vero Team!!

Went with a friend for dinner on Wednesday evening - special of the evening is steak frites.....three set courses, choice of salad, gnocchi to start, then choice of steak and special fries or a paella with a mango cheesecake type of dessert to finish. We started with the salad - fresh greens and lovely presentation, but found the dressing a bit bland and of course no condiments on the table. Requested steak medium rare and it was more on the rare side, didn't mind that but the meat was a bit on the chewy side - not as tender as I would have liked. The fries were delicious seasoned with Parmesan and pepper. I would have liked the server (Clinton, who was attentive and pleasant - no complaints), but I would have liked to be offered a fresh grind of pepper. In my opinion the star of the main course was a taster of their meatballs with cheese in tomato sauce - delicious as was the cheesecake dessert with a lovely tangy mango sauce - very good. Very nice atmosphere, excellent wait staff - quality of the steak not what I expected.....will try again - apparently brunch is very good here. We will see!

Our waiter, James, was very friendly and attentive, while not being intrusive.

The food was excellent, and the cook on my wife's steak was just right. Portions were quite generous, and this place has a cozy, quiet atmosphere, which was nice.

The only downside is the parking, but that's Kensington for you. If the street is full there's a parkade across the street, though.

We will definitely return!

Love the place; great for an anniversary! Highly recommend the gnocchi for dinner! Is a little hard to find from the outside, so be sure to not accidentally walk past it.
