Verde Mexican Kitchen & Cantina
Wonderful service. Fun, bright,Wonderful service. Fun, bright, open space. Mariposa margaritas were fabulous. Great beer selections. I hear the fish tacos are very good but our food choices were all much heavier than expected. We will definitely go again, probably on a weekday night since it was pretty noisy on a Friday evening, and hope for some lighter menu options.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious As Always!This was my 3rd or 4th visit to Verde. I have never ordered any main courses from the regular menu, only from the specials, and my method proved spot on again. Delicious as usual and the Hibiscus Margarita, my first time trying it, was so refreshing and crisp. I was again impressed with the incredible food and drinks from Verde.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMexican - healthy and freshThis was our third visit and we still love it.
The staff are friendly and efficient.
The food is tasty and the specials are worthy of
paying attention to the rather long descriptions.
We will be back.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA great day for brunch with friendsAs always, Verde was amazing. The food, the service, the atmosphere...we couldn't have asked for anything better. Their outside seating is great and the staff are very attentive and friendly. It doesn't hurt that their food and drinks (especially their drinks) are great, too!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat family celebrationWe wanted some place casual and fun with great food and the ability to be a good fit for our potentially noisy family. We were celebrating my son's 22nd birthday with family and friends and wanted it to be a relaxing treat. It worked out perfectly. Everyone enjoyed their food and drinks. We had a great time. Service was first rate and menu was creative.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday BrunchWhat a fine restaurant for our granddaughter's Birthday Brunch. Very good food, very good service, very friendly people.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food, very loud placeI was pleasantly surprised about the food and service given some of the bad reviews. All of us enjoyed our apps and entrees and the marguaritas (house) were some of the best I've had for the price. Our server was extremely nice, but could have been a bit more attentive, not sure if it was busier than usual. It IS very loud inside. But we must have had fun since we stayed for 2 1/2 hours.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, wonderful margaritas,Good food, wonderful margaritas, attentive service. Perfect setting for festive celebration (celebrating graduation in our case). We went for dinner and also brunch on another occasion and had good experience both times.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding experienceThe food was outstanding and the service was exceptional. We started with guacamole and a trio of salsas. They were all just right. My wife and I also ordered two flights of tequila to go with our apps which exemplified the difference between everyday tequilas and the unusual selection that is available here. The entrees were unusual, tasty, and well presented. The dessert was a wonderful Latin take on apple pie with cinnamon ice cream that alone would bring us back. The waiter, Kevin, was attentive but not overbearing and provided us with everything that we needed. We were able to course over selves and did not feel rushed. Verde might just be my new favorite. I am definitely going back and you should try it too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & service, not for kidsThis was the first time that we went to Verde. We were lucky to find street parking right outside the restaurant.
The food was excellent, as was the service. Our waiter was particularly good, with his meal and dessert recommendations.
There was not too much that my son could eat however! It was hard to find something that would suit his 9-year old palate. I like that restaurants are doing away with the Kids Menu with its bland generic choices, but maybe they could introduce "mini-portions" of regular menu items for kids and portion-conscious adults.
All in all an excellent experience, and I will certainly return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, food, & atmosphereFriendly, attentive service, good food, fun atmosphere. Only con, the dining room was quite loud.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good (and very spicy)food.Very good (and very spicy)food. I liked my fish tacos and sangria a lot. Not at all the standard Tex-Mex menu of many Mexican restaurants--much more interesting. My only complaint was that when I walked in I felt somewhat assaulted by the noise--it quieted down by about 9 or 9:30, but wouldn't be a great place to be if you wanted a serious conversation. If you're up for fun and laughter, go for it. Service was friendly but not graceful: slow attention by the maitre d who then assumed that three of us waiting for him were together rather than asking, a waiter who was inclined to take our nachos while we were still waiting for the main course. Still, I'll go back4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy says it all!Fantastic food - everything from the elotes (corn on the cob)to the enchiladas de pollo to the craft margaritas were amazing! In addition to the everyday menu, Verde also offers special of the day soups, tacos and tamales. This was our first time visiting, but not the last. Thanks for the great birthday experience!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing Sunday BrunchAs always my Sunday brunch was begun with friendly and knowledgeable service.
The house Margaritas are top notch. The guacamole was fresh and delicious. I had the brisket and sweet potato hash which was excellent. The corn and plantain biscuit and chorizo gravy are really enough on their own. Looking forward to when the patio is open for an alfresco brunch.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, as always, excellent--serviceFood, as always, excellent--service is always pleasant, but sometimes sloooow.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was excellent, freshfood was excellent, fresh and creative. Service was fabulous.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful placeVisit regularly. Service and food always reliable. Great concept. Wonderful preparation of food. Drinks are the best.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceNot authentic type food...modern twist on Mexican. Awesome drinks. Great social scene. Fun ambiance.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTriple ThreatTerrific service. Very good food. Gluten-free options available.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFun birthday dinner with my Mom!We came for my mom's birthday, and all had a great time! Some of the picky eaters in our group weren't thrilled with the authenticity and unique flavors offered (they'd probably eat a hamburger and fries everyday for dinner if available), but the rest of us loved the menu selection as well as our food when it arrived! Our waiter was very nice, as well, and was happy to accommodate alterations to the dishes (for instance, I'm vegan, people wanted sauce on the side, etc). I had come here back when it first opened and wasn't very impressed, however now it seems they have gotten all initial kinks sorted out and I'd definitely recommend Verde to others!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat but can be pricey.The staff was very friendly and helpful! We were a party of five that suddenly grew to seven. On a very busy Friday night were able to find a table to better accommodate our group. The shift in waitstaff was handled wonderfully. All of our food arrived on time, to the correct person, and our drinks were always full.
The only complaint we had that night was about the price of the soup special - $30 for a bowl of soup with some fish and crayfish in it. It was a surprise when the bill came (special prices are not listed). This was my third trip to Verde and won't be my last, but we will be more conscious of meal pricing.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the more interestingOne of the more interesting Mexican restaurants in Pittsburgh. Not the usual menu choices you get at most area Mexican restaurants.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
