    A special surprise to find outstanding attention paid to quality food, quality preparation, and quality service and customer service amid the common plethora of just okay establishments. The sauces and options are a real plus, just ask your server. The broad selection of choices is a major plus. We have been several times and plan to go more often.

    The whole experience at VERDE is always great. The food in not the usual watered-down" Americanized take on Mexican food. My wife and I have been to Verde many times since discovering it in the last few months and have never been dissapointed. We are looking forward to continue going through the menu!

    First time and one of the best dining experiences! Super fresh and delicious food, wonderful service! The owner came around twice making sure EVERYTHING was satisfactory and the bartender made unique drinks and came to our table to see how we liked them. Really felt the family feel and personal care at this restaurant! Would highly recommend!!!

    Optimistic based on past patronage of Prickly Pear in Mooresville. Busy Friday night. Service was attentive and engaged. Food was at our table quickly. Mango-citrus shrimp fajitas arrived fast and still hot, and were delicious. Table-side guacamole was delicious. We split the entree and guac and had plenty of food. Will go again.

    What a great restaurant for those of us living in Huntersville. No longer needing to drive into charlotte for a delicious urban mexican meal. All 4 of our entrees were excellent. The Pibil and the brisket enchiladas were so good. The staff was very friendly and helpful in helping us pick some great food!

    Of the 4 things we ordered, 3 came wrong. We waited forever, and the bus boy took our plates,chips/salsa, etc and when we asked if we should keep our forks, he asked if we were having dessert. Meanwhile, we hadn't even gotten our lunch yet!!! There were only 4 tables, so it's not like they were busy. I shouldn't have been surprised though since their sister restaurants are disappointing as well, but we wanted to give this one the benefit of the doubt. We will not be back.

    When first walking in I felt like I was in a Denny's or Waffle House. They need to work with a decorator to figure out how to capture a more inviting ambiance to their restaurants (Prickly Pear). That being said, the food is incredible. From the Calamari to the Fajitas, and all the interesting ingredients make for some pretty amazing entrees. The bar area is nice, but again it's not a place I would spend hanging out. I'm sure the outside seating area will be very popular come Spring and Summer.

    Dined on 1/4/2014
    Between myself, my wife, and our friends, we've been to Verde seven times since it opened. That should tell you that we really enjoy this place. The food is amazing! It is way more like fine dining than a Mexican Restaurant. The chef uses fresh ingredients and the presentation is like something you see in a magazine. All at a fair price. The decor is very clean and green. The tables are a bit small but have to be because the place isn't that big. If you are looking for an intimate and quiet place, this isn't it.The atmosphere is lively. It is kid friendly and there have been several family groups dining the last two nights but they were well behaved. Overall, I will keep telling others to give it a try. They will love it! , Table311

    This is upscale Mexican food, not your standard tacos and burritos. Therefore, it is more expensive. The drinks start at $7, the appetizers $9. The food was fresh, but needed more seasoning. The drinks were very good, as were the Churros - hot dough sticks drenched with cinnamon sugar, served with chocolate for dipping. I was also very pleased to get chopped fresh jalapeños when I asked for some jalapeños on the side. The service was good.

    So the drinks will speak for themselves. Then comes the food. The nachos might possibly be the best I have ever had (and we have them at every restaurant we go to so that says a bit). The Pibil will blow your mind. And the Mole sauce is the best in the Charlotte area. True to everything mole should be. It's not what you think for typical Mexican food and that is a very very good thing.

    Wow! Great food. Great service. I have been to Verde 3 times now. Our regular Mexican restaurant around here used to be Chico's. Verde is even better!!! I mean much better! Everything seems lighter and more flavorful. We have gotten many different items on the menu and we have not been disappointed yet. Not in the least. This will definitely be our all time favorite Mexican restaurant. And we only live right down the road. :)

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 8/17/2013
    This was our first visit to this newly-opened restaurant. The food was good but a bit on the spicy side for our taste. But this is a Mexican restaurant, after all. The flavors worked, the food was nicely presented and seemed to be made from fresh ingredients. Service was very good, especially for a new restaurant. This is definitely a step or two above your “typical” Mexican fare, and the downside is that the prices reflect that. Dinner for 2, with shared appetizer, two entrees, shared dessert and two margaritas each came to over $100 with tip. Some may find it worth that, but we did not. We may try it again after it has been open for a while, but with so many other choices we don’t be rushing back.
