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. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Food was excellent. Our waiter was great and all his recommendations were delicious and beyond our expectations. A winner.

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!

Bar Verde is one of my favorite restaurants. Matthew Kenney does an amazing job - the food is incredible, the wait staff is amazing (super kind, considerate, fun, and on top of things), and the overall ambiance of his restaurants are perfect. Would highly recommend.

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.

Absolutely horrible service. My friend and I went for dog restaurant week, so we were seated outdoors. We got bottomless mimosas. The waitress, though she went in and out multiple times, continuously forgot to serve us a refill of the mimosas even with reminders, so we ended up only having 2 within the time limit. Our food was fine. A bit overpriced as nachos should not be $18, however they were delicious. When we were brought the check, the dog restaurant week deal said we’d get 15% off of our bill however that was not honored. After we gave her 2 credit cards, she put both sides of the check on one card! Seriously? To fix this situation she took another 20 minutes. This was such a poor experience. The food is great, but not worth going back to because of this poor service.

Terrific food and even better service. I came with my parents and family on a Thursday evening. We loved it - great selection and very attentive service. The food presentation was really something else and the habanero sauce made a big difference. Would definitely come back!

This was our second visit to Bar Verde, and we enjoyed it as much as the first time. We are all (in general) animal protein eaters, but the vegan Mexican cuisine here is so good that it almost made vegans out of us. We particularly liked the hearts-of-palm ceviche and the mushroom quesadilla.

We were meeting a vegan family member for dinner. I discovered Bar Verde from Eater on the internet. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of foods offered, all vegan. They also have tasty cocktails, wines, and a large selection of beer. All of the food was hearty and didn't miss the animal products at all. I had the mushroom and onion quesadilla that had cashew cheese. It was delicious and filling. We had the guacamole and salsa starters. The dips were wonderful, especially the one made with pepeta (wish they would bottle it!) The chips were too think for my liking but that's a small criticism. All in all, we all enjoyed our dinner; both vegans and omnivores!

This was our first time at Bar Verde, and we loved it--and we are not generally fans of vegan cuisine. The heart-of-palm ceviche was truly excellent, as were the jackfruit tacos.

I’ve been to Bar Verde twice already and could not recommend it enough for a date or a night out with a small group of friends. Service, drinks, food, and ambiance were amazing. Obviously owing to its fantastic dining experience, the place was packed in tight and it was pretty loud. If you’re hoping for a more intimate, quiet night, perhaps avoid going at times bound to be busy. Taco portions are on the smaller side, so if you’re jonesing for a delicious taco, share an app with your eating companion- those portions are quite large. Half an app with the 2 tacos and a Paloma (or one of their other amazing cocktails) make for an excellent and exciting dinner.

Service was excellent, food was very good, couldn’t believe it was vegan. The manager was very kind and our server was so nice. Walking in the prices were kind of expensive but the food was worth the price. My favorite dishes were the nachos and the Brunch Burrito.
