Two words: Mushroom. Empanadas.
OMG! this was soooo good! The food was completely outstanding, but the empanadas blew me away!
We had the nachos (so good!), the quesadillas (amazing!), the empanadas (unreal!) and the wild mushroom carnitas tacos. This last one was really good, but my least favorite of all we had. Then, chocolate churros (delicious!). It was an amazing meal! Will be back!

By far one of my favorite restaurants in the city. What a gem! Amazing service and ambiance. The food is excellent. This is plant-based menu for ANYONE. It’s no longer about being “vegan” — it’s about sustainability — and having plant-based options to eat is key. You will not compromise on flavor here - this menu redefines plant-based. And the presentation of each plate is exquisite. Please open a 2nd location anywhere on the west side!!!

The food was delicious! Best nachos ever. I cannot wait to go back. It was an incredibly lively Friday night in there, though, and really quite loud and cramped. The food completely made up for any negatives in the ambiance department, though. It would not stop me from going back.

Horrendous food. Lacked any kind of flavour associated with Mexican cuisine. Service was poor.

We went to Bar Verde after visiting the ArcadiaEarth exhibition on Broadway. After seeing room after room about what we are doing to the planet and how we can help make it better, an amazingly tasty vegan meal from Bar Verde was the quintessential end to the evening. Delicious beyond, it reminded our table that vegan can be as good as any other meat or dairy filled foods.

The food was bursting with flavours and I had the best margarita I’ve ever had! (Guava flavour). It was NYE so buzzing but great atmosphere. Staff were very polite. Would highly recommend.

Best Mexican in NYC (considering it’s vegan). Nachos are a must! Best tacos: jackfruit and wild mushrooms

Great food! Makes me actually want to eat vegetables. Never met a margarita I didn’t like here. Intimate space but you can make friends with the table next to you!

Andrea really made our night for Thanksgiving Dinner. The only thing I’d change is the soup - too acidic for us. Please never remove the jackfruit bowl!!

Everything was great. Only complaint would be that the tables are very close together, but that’s lower Manhattan dining.

Bar verde is one of three spots I always recommend to people when they visit NYC. The other two are located right next door! (double zero and plant food). The food is always an impeccable delight - first feeding your eyes and then your stomach. The service is outstanding, as if you are among friends. Matthew Kenneys cuisine is always presented and crafted from outside of the box thinking and I suggest anyone daunted by an entirely plant-centric restaurant to open their minds. Because each bite is an artistic masterpiece no matter what your dietary preferences. Please offer more than 5 stars to lend to a review. I need 5 times that. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

The waitress came over to take drink orders as soon as we sat down. We weren’t ready yet so she left and said she would return. We waited and waited and waited and tried to get her attention while she was chatting at the bar. No luck. Finally another waiter noticed us and took our drink order. The place was not busy so this was not a good start. We ordered 4 appetizers which were ok. The sangria was excellent. We then ordered two entrees which were good. We were two vegetarians and two who will eat this way ‘when in Rome ‘. We had been to a Matthew Kenney restaurant a while back and everything was excellent. This was average at best.

A little on the pricey side for what you get, but I am happy to pay for great food made with great ingredients. Highly recommend the butternut squash queso, mushroom tacos and cali burrito. Regular margarita on the rocks was excellent. I dined with a non-vegan and they also enjoyed everything! Gets a little crowded at night and there's barely any room between tables, so try and dine before 7ish, if you like your space. Service was excellent from start to finish. Can't wait to go back next time I am in the city!

My second time here and once again the experience was delightful although service was a little slow. Favorites were cauliflower tacos and mixed mushroom tacos. Vodka cocktail was amazing. We sat outside this time so had less issues with noise but when I went into the bathroom I rejoiced at not being inside.

My third time here, but it’s been a year. Seems to be a bit more empty for brunch. I went for dinner once and it was a bit crazy. Very different vibe. BUT the food is really good, and the drinks. We’ve taken Omni’s here and they really like it. Will go back!

The breakfast burrito as described on the menu did not arrive the same way. Very misleading. But still good, just not what I expected based on the menu description which sounded way better.

This place is really special. The vegan food was spectacular--flavorful, pretty, creative, and such a variety of choices. Portions were generous for the price. Our server was wonderful! He gave perfect recommendations, paced the food really nicely and made it an all around memorable evening--even comped the dessert when I mentioned it was my friend's birthday dinner. We will definitely be returning. I want to try more of the delicious menu options. I'm not vegan, but I loved this food! And the standout service!

We ate there for the first time on Friday night. The staff were amazing and our server (as well as another server) was so helpful and knowledgeable in describing the food and suggesting options to eat. The food was tasty and flavorful and the table outside was lovely. We would definitely eat here again when we come back to NY.
