    The staff was courteous and professional. However, I really wish they would make note of the fact that this is smack in the middle of a smoke filled casino. Sorry, probably my bad for not noticing this in advance, but I am from out of town and would never have selected this place for a business dinner had I known that I was inviting business partners to a casino. Absolutely horrendous. It was late so we ate there anyway. Food was decent and the staff were kind and polite, so not fault to the staff in the restaurant at all.

    We will go again for sure. It was Mothers' Day, noisy inside, but so quiet outside - we asked to be moved outside and were graciously accommodated - and the traditional buffet was really, really good! Very reasonable, too. Just what we were looking for.

    Although not the most robust brunch buffet in the Phoenix area certainly one of the best. Fresh and tasty offerings and the make them as you call them omelette bar always a favorite. No black olives though as an ingredient choice..... Good Bloody Mary as well...not too peppery The female vocalist was pure of voice for sure and reminded me a bit of Eva Cassidy although her selections were not as rich or bluesy. Overall a great venue and place for a 1st date...(which btw I've stretched to 4 now *wink*)

    Dined on 2/23/2014
    Wepve been to the Jazz Brunch in the past, but did not take children. The review above is from that visit. This time, we made reservations and a follow up phone call from the restaurant informed us that children were not allowed. That forced us to go to another restaurant. Too bad, as the food is very good. Still, by not allowing kids, the restaurant keeps the atmosphere very conducive to a romantic and enjoyable dining experience.

    I have been there 6 times for the past 4 months. I strongly recommend the Sunday jazz brunch buffet for $19.99. It's the best deal in town. For dinner entree I recommend the seafood risotto and the short rib. Both are excellent

    Smoky, seedy casino atmosphere (including questionable looking dudes staring at my wife on the walk to the restaurant). Waited 15 minutes before server came to table. Lumpy potatoes, steak with little flavor (though was cooked appropriately), pretty small food portions (not worth the $45 each they charged for the Valentine's Day special - would avoid for special occasion). Lava cake dessert was good, pinot noir acidic. Trashy looking parking lot with tons of RVs parked all over (complete with lawn chairs out front - when did people start tailgating at casinos?). Smelled like smoke when I got home. Anyone who gave this joint high marks was probably hammered. I shan't return. Open Table should remove this joint from their site.

    We were not happy on a few levels with this restaurant. The service was not good as the waiter seemed to be very inexperienced and didn't have a knowledge of the food or wine. Our drinks were served late and we were empty for too long. Several dinner items were messed up and had to be sent back. The menu was a set menu and the choices were very limited. The dessert had to be shared by two so if one didn't like it, they didn't get dessert. Also, they were both chocolate and we had a person who was allergic to chocolate. The pork dish was so dry, I couldn't finish it. We tried to let the waiter know but he was too overwhelmed to help.

    Poor service, hair in food that the waitress tried to pawn off as linen thread, it was certainly not. Reservations yet seated late. Overcooked seafood was most likely precooked. Would we go again??? Um no. Risotto was spot on to be fair but that was all.

    We've been at the Lone Butte many times and have never ejoyed Verona until recently. The food and service were amazing. We've been back twice since and will continue to be patrons. Everyone at our table ordered a different dish including beef, chicken and seafood. It was all prepared perfectly. The pace of the service was perfectly timed. Never rushed, always the perfect amount of time between courses to enjoy our time and some great wine. Bravo !

    Our reservation was at 6 pm and we ended our meal at 8:25! It took over an hour to get our food and the manager only said "sorry for the wait". UNACCEPTABLE. Most restaurants offer a free dessert, glass of wine, or a discount for such poor service. We frequent Verona several times a year but will NOT return in the future.

    We enjoyed coming here for an early Valentine Day's dinner. My wife had some type of roasted pork, and I had the porterhouse steak. The steak was very good, very tender. Her dish was just as good. We are not wine connoisseurs, but they seem to have an extensive wine list with domestic and imported wines for almost any budget (we had an Italian wine for a reasonable price). Recommended.

    My wife and I enjoyed the Sunday brunch very much. The selection was not overwhelming, but all the favorites were there -- omelets to order, scrambled eggs, thick French toast, and slices off a nice beef roast. Coffee and tea were delivered as we desired it. The salads and fruits did much to lessen dieter's guilt, but the dessert table is a big temptation.

    I had the Chicken Parmesan. The breaded chicken was huge and placed on top of a pile of home made spaghetti. Both were fantastic. I am not a fan of marinana sauce but it was so good I didn't notice the sauce was meatless until I was halfway done. The breaded Mozzarella is the best I've ever had. My wife had the house salad with her meal and says the dressing is the best she's ever had. I had the Minestrone, which was very good but not quite like Grandpa used to make. We have eaten at the Verona Chophouse several times and will eat there again. The manager told us about a sausage dish served with rigatoni, can't wait for that!

    Went here on a Sunday for the brunch. After navigating the sea of smoke from the casino, we found ourselves inside and instantly recognized the quality of the venue. The offerings were fresh and delicious. Probably the best prime rib I've ever had anywhere. There were also various assorted cheeses, meats, shrimp, roasted veggies. A salad bar, omelette station, bacon, eggs, sausage, hash browns.... a couple of other lunch-like entrees and a dessert station. For $20 you're not gonna find a better brunch anywhere in AZ. The food was all top-notch (try the creme brulee) and the service was just as good.

    Service was great & waitress very nice and helpful. The food was average but for the price it was decent. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would rate it at 2.5. Salad bar and fruit selection was good. If I go back, I will try the omelet station as the eggs served were dry and tasteless. Very small selection of entrees and sides. It was hit and miss on the food! A champagne option would be nice!

    Great Sunday Brunch with alot of variety including hot food, delicious fruits, and great desserts. The price was good, too. It would have been nice to have champagne included in the Sunday brunch as our group of 5 ended up spending $50 additional for two bottles(one was not enough for 5 glasses). Orange juice is also $2 extra per glass. Soft drinks and coffee are included in the $20/person price. Jazz band plays also. Just to let you know that children under 21 are not allowed as it is in a casino. Overall, it's a great place for Sunday brunch and we would go again.
