More ch-ch-ch-changes! Okay. Another new dish: Short Rib Grilled Cheese With Blackberry Jam was a hit with my carnivore friend. My cilantro Lime Shrimp Salad was beautifully composed, and the greens and vinaigrette were delicious, but the shrimp were overcooked. When I pointed it out, though, it was redone without hesitation. The Sea Salt Caramel Cheesecake (that used to be our "crack") has been replaced with a Bourbon Caramel Cheesecake -- almost as good :-) Service is always very good also. We remain fans.

I'm almost afraid to write a review because it is such a lovely spot, I don't want it to get overrun. You're just an elevator ride above the Grove, but you feel transported. The views are lovely and the atmosphere is sophisticated and serene.

It's a very relaxed setting that is just perfect for a comfortable dinner with friends, or a romantic place for two.

Our waiter was fantastic. The food and service were excellent.

I can't think of a single thing that could have been better.

Experience was fine but I get an email from open table saying that Bar Verde said I was a no show. Frustrating that I have to prove that I was there. To make it easier I just won’t use Open Table or go to Bar Verde. Waste of time.

Oh change can be so stressful, and they keep doing that to us with their menu after the addiction sets in. We do get over it, though. My lunch partner and I were delighted with the new dishes we tried this time: My carnivore friend raved about his Braised Beef Bourgignon; and I loved the Shrimp Chitarra! Then we both died over the must-have Caramel & Sea Salt Cheesecake that was, thankfully, still on the menu!!

The staff was on their game, but they couldn't help it that families with really loud and unhappy children were everywhere. That was the only disappointing part of our experience. The hostess was great our server was great and the food was very good. I definitely recommend the beef bourguignon, I literally kept making Mmmm noises while eating it. The burger was ok but the aioli was a great accompaniment. The chocolate cake was good, but the bread pudding was really good.

Our service was terrible and the food was ok. We waited about close to an hour after ordering to receive our food and our waiter could care less. He was inattentive and unapologetic. His excuse was "It takes long to make the burgers." Really? When you order before several new guests get seated and receive your food after they do. Hmm. Will not be returning.

For what was not a crowded night, with plenty of empty tables ... the service was painfully slow. Just getting silverware took 15 minutes, forget drink refills, or catching the waiter for something additional like a dessert menu. The best part of the night was bonding with the other guest at tables around us regarding the shared experience of being ignored by the restaurant staff.
Which truly is a shame because the night was beautiful and everyone was in a festive mood until the realization of being abandoned by the servers turned the night into group frustration.

Bar Verde at the Grove is a fun place to eat. They have a decent size menu and the service was excellent (from front desk to waiters to busboys). Nice indoor or outdoor seating and great location at the top of Nordstroms at the Grove.

I love to sit out on the balcony on a nice day. If sunny, place me under the umbrella please. Lol. We enjoyed our outing with cocktails and lunch to end our shopping at the grove. Our waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable. The young lady who ran our order didn’t really care to acknowledge us. Just a drop off the food and go. Even after saying thank you it was just like a blank stare. No big deal but we noticed she didn’t care too much for our table. Whatevs. =) Our waiter made up for it, he was great! I genuinely enjoy coming here though.

I've been to this particular restaurant many times, and the Grove branch never seems to let me down. The food is great, the ambience is classy, beautiful, yet comforting, and the staff are just so phenomenal. I have never met anyone who seemed rude at Bar Verde. Will definitely be back here for years to come!
