Diner Reviews
  • "Bar Verde is my favorite spot at The Grove. The food is carefully prepared and the waitstaff is very attentive. Patio dining is the best for people watching below. And the special drinks are the best! All that's needed is to improve the bar food menu, which was skimpier than my last visit."

  • "This was our second visit in one week after first discovering it. Happiness! It seemed to be all different servers this time, but every one of them, especially ours, was extremely pleasant. The food was great again -- we really loved the ricotta/eggplant/tomato in a jar. This is going to work out just fine as a semi-regular dining spot."

  • "Oh my goodness, what a find! Having lunch there on the terrace overlooking the green; then catching a movie just a few steps away; followed by hanging out, people watching, and strolling for a bit -- all made for a fabulous afternoon at The Grove. But back to the lunch: We had the Seared Chicken & Avocado Salad (server's recommendation when I couldn't choose between that and the pasta); and the Ahi Tuna Salad -- both of which were SPECTACULAR and DELICIOUS. Unable to resist the temptation, we followed it with the Peach & Blackberry Cobbler for dessert -- SO GOOD. The very personable and gracious staff -- EVERY ONE OF THEM -- added to the pleasure. The two of us left totally excited about discovering this new dining spot."

  • "Bar Verde is a welcome addition to dining at the Grove. Chrystian is a very good bartender, an excellent server. Eating either inside out, Bar Verde offers a wide variety of options from light to filling. Access is easy — just take the entrance with the glass doors just west of Nordstrom's. The terrace is sheltered from the sun and ideal for watching the crowds. All the servers are pleasant and attentive."

  • "We went for dinner and sat outside. It was healthy, well prepared food that came in good portions. We ordered the chicken like tacos, carrot soup, fig salad, skirt steak, and chicken pasta. We shared everything because it was so yummy!"

  • "Nordstrom has done it again. Outstanding tastes and presentation. Subtle flavors infused into and around our fish dinners were perfect."

  • "I've eaten at Bar Verde twice with my 83 year old mother and have not been disappointed. It's a charming little space, with a fun view of the Grove from up high. The staff is friendly, hip and very attentive and charming. The food is reasonably priced and quite good. A nice little neighborhood find in a busy mall."

  • "Surprisingly nice place given that it's in a dept. store in a mall - got to love The Grove and Nordstrom must have spent a fortune on their recent renovation. We ate on the balcony and it really couldn't have been nicer. The food was really good too - my spicy cauliflower appetizer was especially yummy. The ambience is very contemporary, but the whole experience took me back to the fancy dept. store restaurants my grandmother took me to for my birthday (with shopping for a present) when I was a kid. Bravo Nordstrom for reviving that idea. I will come back."

  • "I specifically asked fora quiet table to conduct a business meeting and they put me in the back room, but then added a family with a small, noisy child. Spoiled my whole experience!"

  • "Great place for dinner in the area. Very reasonably priced. Easy to find, and located right in the mall for shopping before/after your meal. My pasta dish was oustanding, and all members of my party were also very pleased with their entrees. Drink menu looked interesting as well although none of us ordered from it to save money. Would definitely recommend and return!"

  • "I'm pretty sure it's the time that my boyfriend and I had dinner, but it was fairly quiet on a Saturday evening at 6pm. The ambiance was nice above the crowds at the Grove, and it was pretty cool be able to enter through the separate entrance on the side of Nordstroms. It felt as if we knew something that others didn't (There is actually an entrance to the restaurant on the second floor). The service was good and attentive and suggestions, on point. The only reason I docked a star for 'food' is because I felt as if both my boyfriend's and my plate were a bit overly salted. Otherwise, the menu prices were reasonable and the food options were good. I'd go back. :)"

  • "Had a very good meal here with 3-generation family. The kids' menu is unusually good and reasonable. The waiter was very attentive, arriving at the table with a kid-friendly cup filled with lemonade for our 5-year-old. The ricotta-eggplant jar with rustic toast and the grilled artichokes were outstanding appetizers. Desserts--chocolate terrine and pots de creme--were also excellent. My only criticism of the restaurant is the fact that we were offered an outside table on a very chilly night, with no space heaters. Despite the fact that I had made a reservation well in advance, we then had to choose between either the too-large communal table or a four-seat booth for our family of 5. Food is fine, but seating options need improvement."

  • "we had a great experience. The food was delicious and well presented. From the get go we were will greeted and Rick gave us great service the whole night. Great location and food. This restaurant could be so much bigger if they wanted to."

  • "Food for my friend and I was over-cooked. The French dip roll almost sliced through her roof of the mouth because it was so hard. I had asked for my burger to be ""pink" which normally means medium. It was well done and chewy. Cooked beyond any juices running through it. Service was attentive and friendly and the weather was perfect for outdoor dining. Food wasn't up to par for the prices being charged."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The Bucatini with Short Rib was so delicious that I wish the portion was slightly larger. My friend's Wild Mushroom Flatbread Pizza looked very good. I just wish the service could've been a bit more attentive: automatically bringing a pasta spoon with the bucatini, refilling both water glasses instead of just one, and letting us know if someone else will take over while our original server went to take a break. We were there for a 1:00 pm lunch which is prime time, but our server disappeared after asking if our entrees were ok and a manager brought us our bill. Not a very polite or professional service if you ask me."

  • "This is one of the best kept secrets at the grove. It's usually not too crowded, the food is amazing & so is the service and the drink selection. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. I will be returning for date night again ;)"

  • "Usually I would not mind a small entree but both dishes that we had ordered during our visit were extremely over seasoned, and one of the sides was completely burnt."

  • "Have been wanting to try this place - inside Nordstrom. It's a fairly nice full service restaurant. Everyone very friendly, not very attentive service, from the servers to the front desk & seating. But friendly once you get their attention!. Excellent food & decent wine list. A nice break from the other over priced & supposedly fancy restaurants at the Grove. Will definitely go again!"

  • "We had the perfect server Rick. Very knowledgeable of this menu and his recommendation. We sat outside and it turn out to be a great time of people watching and at 700pm taking in the Snow Falling. Food is good. A little pricey but it's Nordstrom. Overall a very nice evening. We will definitely be back."

  • "This was the 2nd time I ate at Bar Verde. The food is great! Today the service was poor. The restaurant was not very crowded, but we had to wait at least 20 minutes for 2 salads! I was disappointed at how long it took to get our meals since I bragged to my friend how wonderful the service was a few days before."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Our server was extremely gracious and very attentive during our dining experience -- seeing as this is Nordstrom, I'd expect no less. The food, however, left something to be desired. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer and it was very good, but my shrimp salad entree was cold, the shrimp was cut into weird, unappetizing-looking pieces and just overall kind of a weird dish. I should mention that I ordered my dressing on the side, but I guess I'm used to having my shrimp salads served warm (at least the shrimp, anyway). It wasn't inedible or anything, but I certainly wouldn't order that dish again."

  • "Came here on a sunday night during a really busy time, we had made reservations but I don't think we would have had to wait too long if we hadn't. We were greeted by some welcoming hostesses who promptly took us to our booth [with a lovely view of the grove] From what I could see every table has a pretty good view of the grove and the kitchen [which has glass walls]. The great decor and ambiance don't hurt either.... The service overall is excellent and our server, Phil, was so wonderful. He was really knowledgable about both the food and the wine and helped me figure out what I could order [I'm vegan]. I ended up ordering a few small plates, all of which were delicious and perfectly seasoned. We'll definitely be back soon!"
