Overall, a GREAT alternative to the busy restaurants at the Americana Glendale (with their unbearable wait times).

Clean location. Friendly servers. Good turnaround (from ordering to the food arriving). Tasty dishes.

TIP: During the winter and summer months, sit indoors. There are a lot of bugs flying around when dining on the patio.

We return frequently
We like the wine selection and the great food
Service is always very friendly and prompt
The atmosphere of the Americana fountain and chopping area is a fun addition to this restaurant
Just wish there was a little more view!

The view from the outside deck is limited to two tables all the other outside tables are flimsy and not great quality however the food does make up for it ! Everything was delicious and well worth it.

It's a very consistent lunch spot. The ambiance is somewhat lacking if you're seating inside but it often isn't busy during the week so you can squeeze in a large group for lunch without much notice. The food is always perfectly fine and the cocktails are great. I love that there are beautiful mocktails on the menu if you don't feel like drinking.

Love the flavors in so many of the items at Bar Verde. Especially delicious are the chicken tacos, the Neopolitan pizza, and the berry lemonade. Yummmm. Staff are kind and accommodating and work nicely as a team.

I would give this a 5-star, but I knock one off for not having any more gluten-free options. That said, it was a nice quiet break from the holiday insanity at the Americana. And Z, our waiter, was polite and attentive. I would go there again if they expanded their menu just a touch - even if just to offer gluten free bread for some of the sandwiches.

It’s always delightful to eat at Bar Verde. Today I had the crab roll and it was filled with luscious lump crab meat and presented beautifully a lobster roll mind with bib lettuce. I chose the salad to go with it. All in all a delightful fairly low calorie meal.

Wow, the food is not what it used to be. Turkey club (which used to be fabulous) is average. Service was terrible and it wasn’t cheap. Kitchen didn’t seem slammed but it still took forty minutes to get lunch for five in the table.

We went for dinela! We waited for almost an hour for the waitress to come and take our order. Then the food took so long. The waitress came to our table at least once or twice to see how we were doing. My score is based on the terrible service we got. Everything was just a waiting game. When we were done, we passed by our waitress and she did not even say anything to us. Not even a thank you have a nice night.

The food was wonderful and sitting on the deck, charming. The sun did poke out of the clouds and heat things up quite a bit. The service was excellent. Jullio was very helpful and attentive.

It’s good to go there if you want a good quick bite. The food was Above 5 stars. You can tell it is fresh and made to order. It was a good choice for my group because it was getting late and there was kids in the group. But you can enjoy a tête à tête dinner away from the noise tucked in the corner or outside.

The food was overall good but I'm not sure about the service. We had to ask for the welcome bread because we saw it being served to the table where the party came after us. And the waitress who was serving us probably knew that but she did not mention it at all so we had to ask other bus boy about that. Also, the waitress who escorted us to the table was not friendly at all.

We had a fabulous experience.
The wait staff were all very friendly, outgoing & professional.
They managed everything from timing to small request & changes very well & with a smile.
The food was delicious!!
All in all we had a wonderful evening.
We have been before when we visit in Dec to see the giant Christmas tree.
Based on this experience, I believe we will now include this in our regular line up of restaurants for dining out.

AS ITS CUSTOMARY OF THIS RESTAURANT, the attention to every detail its given without flaw and it reassures the diner a qualitative experience to be experienced over and over.
The food is so well prepared, (I had the Sake- infused Cod), that one wishes there was more. The cocktails are innovative, and a perfect match to anything from the menu, the wine list is absent from's one mind.
The service so attentive it gives the impression no one else is dining around one's table and the server, in our case the bartender, is always available.
A great visit, can't wait until the next time.

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.
