It was my first dinner at Bar Verde. I like the food. It was very delicious. I would love to come at day time and rest at the patio with a cup of coffee but they don’t have latte and poor choice of desserts. Definitely come back for family dinner.

Great bar and excellent service. We did the dinela and it was $29 per person. It came with an appetizer, main course, and dessert. It was very yummy. The only thing I don't like about this place is that its located inside Nordstrom. I wish they had a separate entrance outside of it instead of having to wander through Nordstrom looking for it.

Add a little light at the kitchen-side booths so people can read the menus? The window light is shaded by the partitions between booths.

Thanks Bar Verde for the wonderful food, ambiance, and service. Our family loves to visit for special occasions, and holidays. The bar has great bartenders and the kitchen has an open window for watching the hard working staff put together your meal.

Ber Verde was delicious for being a restaurant in a department store. The servers were welcoming, tentative, and quick and the food came out in a timely manner. It is on the pricier side for what portions given but the taste definitely makes up for that.

Why change something that's working well? You take a perfectly good club sandwich--an excellent one, as a matter of fact--and suddenly put it on a sweet whole wheat bread which totally takes away from the ingredients of the club... WHY?

For a sandwich that pricey, it should be PERFECT.

Your water tastes funny.

Came here for the DineLA dinner. Upon checking in, hostess and overall staff wasn't very welcoming. We sat at one of the booth seats and waitress didn't come by for quite a few minutes.

Appetizers were good, had the poke soba and chicken tacos, pretty tasty. Entree of grilled NY steak was a little overcooked, but still tasted good. Best part was the tasty potatoes, very delicious. The glazed salmon on the other hand was not edible because of the strong za'tar seasoning. The taste and scent of this seasoning overpowered everything in the dish so everything on it was untouched after the first bite.

Waitress came by to ask how was the food when we haven't even had a chance to touch the appetizers yet. Plus, we had to wave her down to get a refill on water. Used dishes were not cleared the whole time so service was almost non-existent.

The cheesecake was surprisingly delicious. Overall a good deal on the DineLA dinner. Wish the salmon wasn't so overpowered with the seasoning and service should be warmer and more available.

I found out they took my favorite sandwich off the menu which doesn’t make sense because it was the most popular item on menu. So depressing, I don’t believe I’ll go back.

Our Open Table reservation was cancelled despite the fact we called the restaurant ahead of time to confirm it. The tomato soup was clearly canned and poor quality. The hamburger was okay but generally speaking the service was slow and poor.

The restaurant is truly a neighborhood gem, located inside Nordstrom's at the Americana. All members of our party of six arrived at our reservation time and we were immediately seated without any wait. Heidi was our server and provided excellent service taking time to answer questions regarding the menu and explaining all the dinner entrees, as well as daily specials. Nice presentation for all the entrees and they were all delicious. Excellent table service, delicious food and nice ambiance was our experience in this restaurant and did I mention we brought wine and no corkage fee. You will not be disappointed dining at this neighborhood gem.
