My wife, my son and I went to Vero Bistro for a nice pre-mothers day dinner. It is a small cozy bistro with plenty of room at the tables but hard to find parking. We parked at a small parkade on Memorial drive just up one block from the restaurant.
The service was excellent, not the kind of service I was expecting in Calgary. Very similar service that you would get from a good quality bistro in Europe. All the servers ensured you had everything you needed and checked up on you regularly regardless of the tables they were assigned. They operated as a cohesive team which was really good.
As for the food, just amazing. I had the Traditional Agnolotti. This is by far the best pasta dish I have ever had. The brown butter sauce (i think that is what they called it) is to die for, seriously. The truffle oil they use is ... incredible. I highly recommend a bowl or two of this dish. The deserts were also very good. We had one of each desert as we could not decide what we wanted.

Not much more to say, just an excellent bistro with superb food and service. I definitely understand why they are #1 in Calgary on TripAdvisor.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

Great service and scrumptious food served creatively! A perfect evening with friends visiting from England. I always know it’s going to be great at Vero Bistro so it’s an easy choice to make!

Delicious food and great service. Anytime we have company, we always treat them to Vero. The chef menu on Tuesday nights is always a nice surprise. The regular menu is top notch. Best sweet potato gnocchi ever.

Went to this Bistro based on glowing reviews, and it certainly delivered.
The service was professional and friendly, the food was fantastic and the atmosphere was that of a New York style Bistro , small and lively, and comfortable.
My husband and I ordered the Scallops Au Gratin baked in the shell (awesome!!) , the Sablefish in a puttanesca (so fresh and delicious ) , the pork Milanese (haven't had anything better, very tender and juicy, cooked to perfection) and for dessert the Passionfruit creme brûlée with pop rocks!
I rate this Bistro 10/10 , haven't had anything better in YYC. We will be back!!

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!!
