The food here was absolutely fantastic. Went with 2 people and everyone was in love with their dish. Prices are fair for the quality and quantity. A perfect place to go for a celebratory meal, or to snack with friends over drinks.

Service seemed a little overwhelmed. Our drinks arrived late. Covid-eating on a Saturday night is probably chaotic anywhere in NYC so I can cut them some slack.

My only complaint is that the customer base was kind of douchey. Lots of uppity wealthy recent East Village implants. Waited what seemed like forever for the bathroom. When it finally opened, two girls stepped out of it in a way that seemed they had been using the single stall restroom to powder their noses and gossip. No regard to the long line waiting on them.

This place was cute and great for vegan diners but the service was sub par. Our food arrived before our drinks and we had to wait 15 minutes after getting our food for our drinks to finally arrive. The servers seemed under staffed and we had to wait a while for our server to take our order. I would only recommend this place if you are looking for vegan options.

From a quick glance at the menu you would have no idea that this restaurant is VEGAN aka no meat... totally my fault for not reading the menu more closely before booking. But it was very delicious. I wouldn’t go back but it was really good.

The food is delicious. I wish that there was more food. It can be quiet pricey for small portions but the food is so tasty. The jackfruit pibil tacos are amazing.

We showed up and were seated. We waited 30 minutes at our table before deciding to leave since no one showed up to take our order or check on us. We weren’t given water or anything. Servers were busy tending to the section immediately adjacent to the restaurant and our area was ignored. Given that it was around 10pm and no order was taken, we decided to leave. Very disappointing since we waiting till we could get a 9:00/9:30 late dinner reservation. Being busy or overwhelmed is understandable. But in a span of 30 mins, they should’ve checked on us at least once to take the order. Unacceptable, poor poor service.

Finding good vegan food is a challenge and Bar Verde exceeded expectations. The servers were all friendly and attentive (shoutout to Luis and Miguel). The ambiance was cute and the food was absolutely delicious.

Personally recommend the Paloma, nachos, fajita bowl (not pictured), and flan.

Can’t wait to go back and try more from the menu!

Bar Verde is beyond fabulous!!! The drinks and the food are delicious!!! The server was very personable & helpful & available! It’s one of the best! Matthew Kenney is a food magician! The sauce that looks like queso made out of butternut squash is even better than anything I’ve had at any Mexican restaurant. This place is an absolute neighborhood must!! And if you don’t live in the neighborhood, you’ll wish you did!!! The service was outstanding as well!

The food here was insanely good. So beautifully curated and the flavors were great. None of the servers knew where each plate for the tables were going and our drinks took 30 minutes to come, but besides that definitely worth coming here for the food!

Amazing, delicious Vegan food. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Clean bathroom, beautiful bar and just lovely place. Can’t wait to go back and also try the other Matthew Kenney restaurants. This was a first time vegan experience for some family of mine and they were so pleasantly surprised which made me so happy. Thank you for sharing this beautiful food ☮️

The food was excellent but it was so cramped. We went on Valentine's Day and were packed like sardines. The servers could hardly pay any attention to us. Many mistakes were made with our orders and the parties to our left and right. I would guess that it is probably not like this on regular days, but I will probably not be going back to find out.

The food is very good. We have eaten here multiple times. This review is mostly for the Valentine’s Day special menu which was very good. It was unfortunate that the service was incredibly slow and inattentive. The kitchen seemed particularly behind even though there was a fixed menu. At $65 per person with no drinks, one would have expected a little more food as the appetizer- nachos or guacamole - was one serving to share. Dinner was almost two hours by the time we had the full menu due to the long wait time between dishes. Overall, a bit of a disappointment and not typical of our experience on previous visits.

We went during Valentine’s Day... the food was great and the waiter was accommodating but, the food took too long to come out!! Other patrons were getting their food before us even though we had been there longer with an earlier reservation. We were there for two hours and most of the of time was spent waiting for the food!! I’m not sure if it was because of Valentines Day or high volume but the fact that they also added gratuity on top of requesting tip with the long wait was unacceptable. Give us the choice to choose!

From beginning, attentiveness was give. Food was excellent that night. The guacamole was impeccable. Because it got busy a little later, I had to do two or three reminders for another round after my third drink 😝. Overall good and I would go again!

MKC never disappoints and the fact that 3 of his restaurants are right next to each other is even better. The cauliflower enchiladas were amazing and so were the nachos and my beverage as well. The Paloma.

Everything from the food to the service was amazing. We were a rather large party, and we had an extra guest show up, the staff was incredibly accommodating . Everyone including those who weren't vegan/ were skeptic to try vegan food loved everything from our meals to the desert option, the drinks were amazing as well. We will definitely be coming back here soon.

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.
