Great food. Clean, tasty... a great vegan Mexican gem. Thank you Matthew Kenney.
Th food was creative and delicious! I had the jackfruit tacos and my friend had the cauliflower ad they were both amazing!! We sat by the window which was nice. The lighting in the restaurant creates nice ambiance. Service was wonderful and kept refilling my water without my having to ask. Only complaint is that the tables are put so close together that my skinny self had trouble squeezing through to get up. That's a pet peeve of mine though is packing so many tables in that you are trapped once you sit. Luckily no one was seated next to us so we were able to move the table out of the way to get up. Would come back with my gf for the amazing food. Would not come back with my husband as I know the tight seating would annoy him.
Plant-based Mexican food piqued my curiosity -- "farro chorizo"? NOT a substitute for Mexican food with meat, so I'm not likely to return, but it provides a vegan variation for people who conform to that diet, and the drinks were delicious. Nice ambience, friendly service.
Enjoyed a lovely brunch with my sister. Flavors were very good for both our dishes - though somewhat similar (we were hoping there'd be more of a variety between the two dishes) - and portions were hearty. Cocktails packed a punch. I got the impression that the staff (bar, wait, service) weren't completely on top of things. I'm looking forward to going back and trying their dinner menu.
My boyfriend and I tried this place after absolutely LOVING Double Zero next door. When we heard it was the same company we were very keen on coming here as soon as we could. Our experience was underwhelming at best. The food was okay. It didn't wow us, and the portions were pretty small. The restaurant didn't seem particularly busy but the service was inattentive. We waited close to 20 minutes for a slice of mango cheesecake that never came, and our waiter never updated us to the situation. We ended up canceling it so we could catch a movie.
The staff needs some serious training. If drinking on the job will hamper your ability to serve customers then the topic should definitely be revisited.
When I arrived it was pretty quiet. Our server, Miguel, had many suggestions. The nachos and flautas were incredible! I had a mezcal margarita that I love. The churros were underwhelming but overall I’d still give 5 stars. It started getting packed and loud closer to 8pm
I love everything about Bar Verde. From their sustainable, handcrafted cocktails to their always creative and always mouth-watering delicious food to the friendliness and attentiveness of their waitstaff to their commitment to being cruelty-free and ethical to the decor. This restaurant is such a treat. I went there most recently on a date and the waiter seated us in a cozy corner in the back. We both ordered cocktails, which were phenomenal and then shared several different kinds of tacos, each one of which was terrific and a conversation starter due to the chef's creativity. It was so much fun! I love this place.
This place is great! The food is very healthy plant based. If you are already vegan or just looking to change it up, you should try this place!
Enjoyed dining at Bar Verde for my Christmas in New York Holiday Dinner! Flew from Hawaii to New York for Christmas and was so happy to be able to find this Gem for a nice plant based Christmas Dinner with my Hubby!!! It was hard to find an open plant based restaurant and open table helped me find and reserve Bar Verde! Enjoyed the friendly service and ambiance. We sat in a corner window seat in low lighting which turned out to be Romantic as the restaurant wasn't very busy. Great Experience. Hoping to make it back one day just for an ordinary meal. Wishing Hawaii had all the plant based Eateries as New York.
