Verduras Tea House & Cafe reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Big Disappointment
    Love2EatOut
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    We booked a table for six for Mother's Day. When we arrived, there were no other diners there. The table we were given was immediately in front of an air conditioner and we asked to be moved, but the one employee there refused. Yes, there was only one employee there: telephone order taker, customer order taker, cook, and server. And she was obviously harried and upset about it. She finally turned off the AC for us, but under protest. There were only two menus for the six of us. It took about 45 minutes to get our food. When I mistakenly picked up someone else's drink from the prep counter, she was obviously annoyed. There were no free refills. Hopefully our experience was not typical.

    We were there on a Saturday evening before going to the theater. No one else was there so it was quiet. I imagine it is busier at lunch and in the afternon. Sat at a table overlooking the street. Nice atmosphere and quite extensive menu with good specials. I had the red lentil burger which was delicious. And the tea hit the spot too.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 11/24/2013
    We were the first and for a while the only customers. The hostess/wait person seemed somewhat surprised to see us in spite of a reservation. Tasty soup choices (neither was served warm enough for us) and a delcisious cheese/arugula sandwich. My elderly mom found her quiche "interesting" but gobbled down every bite. Tea selection varied; tea service (including a timer for best steeping of each) elegant and unobtrusive. Will return with a younger crowd.

    I've been to Verduras a handful of times and each visit has been perfect. It's simply a very calming place with a lovely menu and reasonable prices.

    Didn't know a meal could be this bad. Started badly when the only apparent employee delivered cold soup to the table. When we asked to have it reheated she told us that she could not because the microwave was broken. She proceeded to then deliver a sandwich so burned that it was literally black on both sides. The only good news is that we were the only people in the entire place so no one else had to suffer. Hopefully this "restaurant" will soon be out of business. It's a great location that deserves a much better management and a real chef.
