' BAR VERDE Ratings and Reviews
All of the food I tasted was exceptionally fresh and delicious! Each dish had incredibly great and unique flavors that just left me wanting to sample more. I felt that the highest quality of ingredients were used and as decadently delicious as everything was, it all felt guilt free and healthful! Presentation was beautiful and the wait staff was friendly and wonderfully helpful. Though I am vegetarian, I believe absolutely everyone would love this place and find the food completely satisfying and a feast for anyones palate. Nothing was heavy as mexican food can often be, and for me personally, it was so good to know that the entire menu was vegan. Good for individual health, the environment, and of course, the animals . Such a win! I look forward to going back and indulging on these fresh, unique and mouthwatering dishes again! :)
Mathew Kenney is a vegan food genius--making things that are simultaneously beautiful, plant-based, fresh and delicious, and all with zero trace of the moralizing hippie-ishness you might expect in a purely vegan establishment (and this coming from a lifelong plant-based diner who grew up in all of those hippie establishments!). This place is chic, friendly, and totally delicious. We love their sister restaurant double zero next door, but taking this fresh vegan approach to mexican food is a match made in heaven.
Bar Verde was top-notch. Had the Elote and Pozole Verde to start. Both good but really enjoyed the Pozole. Then followed with an amazing Farro Chorizo taco (very spicy) and a Maitake Mushroom Carnitas taco. The wait staff are still getting their sea legs but all and all a very good experience—Would go back any time.
Absolutely loved both of the meals I've had at Bar Verde and can't wait to go back. Everything is incredibly fresh, creative and authentic. Plus it all happens to be plant-based!
Must try the following...
-Mushrom Tamales (don't always love mole, but they nailed it)
-Truffle Potato Flautas (loved the flavors and crunch!)
-Jackfruit barbacoa tacos
Was really happy that 00+co, the sister restaurant to Bar Verde, didn't close, as they both have the same address and I was actually worried about that. Once that was out of the way, the food was great here as well! highly recommend the churros, cheesecake (which pairs perfectly with the Cava Brut they have...like literally perfectly), really any tacos, and the smoked potato app. Make a reservation, as this place was packed when I got there, but overall its worth going to.
