This was a very special occasion that we have wanted to do for a long time and we are so glad we did. The food and service were 10/10. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming for how sophisticated the menu and wine were. We added the wine pairing which was so much fun. Thank you for an amazing and memorable night!

First time at this cozy, comfortable little place. My only regret was that I hadn’t gone there sooner! We were there early, but even when it started to fill up, the noise level was like a gentle hum of happy diners. Our server and his trainee, were very friendly and helpful but without hovering. All the staff were attentive without being intrusive. Had a lovely conversation with the owner, Matt, whose commitment to his customers having an outstanding dining experience and pride in his restaurant are evident. Now - the food! We had the mushroom dumplings, beef spring rolls and avocado salad as appetizers. The first two were my favourite (even though I’m not normally a fan of mushrooms). So many lovely Asian-inspired flavours. The avocado salad had great textures and flavours, and was good, but not our favourite part of the meal as it was a little more spicy and tangy than we would have liked. Next, we had steak frites with homemade mayo - so delicious! We managed to force ourselves to have one of each kind of profiteroles - a custard-filled and a chocolate mocha-filled. These were tasty too - a perfect end to the meal. Overall, a really lovely dining experience. I can’t wait to go there again.

I booked a res for 5pm, it wasn’t too busy when we arrived but it’s a good thing I did because by 530 it was packed! The restaurant had a great ambiance and vide. The food was great, some things I weren’t a fan of but I’m just picky , but my girlfriend loved everything. Wine/drink selection was great and they had a great selection of non-alcoholic drinks also which for someone that doesn’t drink is nice to feel included. Overall great experience and great service.

Another GREAT dinner at Vero Bistro Moderne. This time it was the Surf and Turf - a meal that included steak, frites, lamb, mac and cheese and of course a lobster tail. Did I mention the lovely starter salad? Our server Chad helped us make some key decisions on what to order and looked after us while we were there. I’d continue writing but I’m only allowed 2000 characters in this review and that won’t be enough for all the good things I have to say about Vero.
