Way better food and service than other grove dinning spots, reasonable prices for such good food. Happy employees, super clean restrooms! Keep it up! Don’t screw it up please :-)

We are regulars at Bar Verde and have been for years.
We were concerned that on the evening prior to Thanksgiving the hours may be limited In the later hours so we checked online - at the site, on OpenTable. No indication that the hours of service were going to be altered. We turned up at our OpenTable reservation time of 7:45 to the host greeting that the restaurant was closing in a “few minutes“ - well before advertised hours. Obviously we get it - the hours would be limited leading intro the holiday. Just inform the booking agencies (OpenTable, etc) & update the info online.
We chose to stay, eat at the bar & order quickly knowing everyone wanted to start their holiday.
The general mood that night was “when is everyone leaving?” I’m not a fan of that. We moved quickly though our meal & drinks & settling up but the tone just never got much better.

We will always go back - Bar Verde is our “Cheers” but this wasn’t their best night.

Everyone was so nice.

I LOVE Bar Verde, one of my favorite places to eat in Los Angeles! The menu is intriguing and varied, the food is delicious, the staff are always friendly and accommodating, and you simply can't be the location overlooking The Grove. It's a real gem that most people don't even know about. I've had many memorable, delicious experiences there. Highly recommended!

We love the balcony. The waitress guy was nice and friendly. The chairs make so much noise when people moving them. Food is very average. Fresh but no taste. Very plain. The fabric napkins are bad! I put it on my lap and my black pants was all dirty with a white dust from the napkins. Thank goodness the front lady had brush to clean it. I won’t recommend this place for my friends. Nothing much wrong. But for this price and atmosphere people can find better deal.

I go here often. It's a favorite go to for us. We have stopped eating on the patio however. The chairs scrape across the floor on the patio and make loud horrible sounds. It's too bad because it's nice to eat out there.

Nothing was terrible, but we ordered a rare steak and it definitely came medium well to well done. The rest of the food was somewhat bland and pretty overpriced for what we got. I think each entree had one item that was actually good, but neither were the main dish.

Service was OK but he seemed disinterested. They also brought one item out about 5 minutes before the other, and this was at 5 PM on a weekday with almost no one in the restaurant.

It's a fun location overlooking the green at The Grove. Endless people watching opportunities. Wait staff is always delightful. Calamari with hot peppers and sweet chili sauce -- so tasty!! The chicken tacos are delicious too. A stop here for lunch, followed by a movie a few steps away, and you're good.

Funny that in DineLA the best menu I perused was at a Nordstrom restaurant. Food was great. Service was outstanding. Every person I dealt with at the restaurant was awesome. Will go again.

Great vibe at venue, superb service! The food isn't nearly as good as it looks but vibe + decent cost makes up for it. The appetizers and deserts are amazing. Main dish not so much (a bit too bland for my liking, I enjoy savory/powerful flavors).

Bar Verde at The Grove has a good thing going. Great bar. Solid menu. Great atmosphere. And when you have the right server, it's one of our favorite places to go. Over the years, with changes in management & staff, there have been days that weren't amazing, but overall, you can count on consistency at this location. Zach is an excellent server - efficient, friendly, attentive & knowledgable.

Bar Verde is my favorite restaurant at The Grove. The food is always great, the service is, too. And it's got a great outdoor seating area with a bird's eye view of The Grove. I love it!

We were traveling with a two-year old granddaughter. We knew this place would be perfect. We made a reservation and was seated as soon as we arrived. The atmosphere was very nice and they seated us in the back with other families with children. The food here is very good quality and our two-year old loved the mac and cheese that was on the kid's menu. we adults shared a pizza, salad and each of us their famous tomato basil soup. Our server was wonderful. Very cordial and was on top of all of our orders. We will definitely come back.

it a lovely idea.. view of grove is great..
the food is good... altho a limited menu.
the service was fair.. very nice folks but too few to run the place and once the check came they disappeared. The big problem is the scraping of the chairs... when servers or customers move them , its deafening. They need to solve this problem which is a major turnoff to the dining experience.

Service friendly again. Excellent bartending, bully martini. A bit sad we were told that reserving by Open table means we can't choose where we sit. Also, we told them it was a birthday and they did nothing about it. All else was great.

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.
