Have eaten here several times over the past month. Service levels seems to decrease week over week. They seem to be understaffed. Takes forever for a food order to be taken. Food comes quickly and then the bill takes forever. If you order a order coffee/tea...also takes a long time to arrive and is just warm, not hot. Good food...but poor service.

I always love Nordstrom restaurants, however, I feel that the quality of the food and service at Bar Verde has declined in the past year. I used to love Bar Verde. Now I would say that it's 'fine'.

Excellent experience. Menu had a wide range of choices and the three of us had no problem choosing different items, and all of us were very happy with our choice as the quality of the food was exceptional. Overall atmosphere was very pleasant and our server was just right attentive but did not hurry us. It was an 84th birthday lunch and just right

Always great to be able to carry a conversation here because noise level is quite quiet. But service dwindles when we decide to stay longer, I guess everyone wants you to dine and leave. We like it here and stay a bit more because of the ambience and it is quiet enough. Food is becoming predictable as we are almost always here but overall, this place is great. An escape from the chaos of this mall!

I have eaten here a few times and am always impressed by the level of service and the quality and variety of the menu choices. The view through the windows over the Eaton Centre shoppers and shops is uniquely interesting too.

Always enjoy Bar Verde. It’s one of the few places in the core where you can meet and have a conversation without having the guests at the next table right beside you, so love the booths. The noise level is also good for conversation without shouting at each other. After we arrived the music was turned up but we asked our server Laura if it could be turned down a little and she got right on it...thanks Laura! Food is always excellent, fresh and tasty. I have been coming here since it opened and always my favourite place to bring friends. Thank you

I have been to Bar Verde many times and the food is always really good. We had theatre tickets this time and advised our waiter and she made sure that we were finished with more than enough time, which we really appreciated. I asked for window seats, because I like the view overlooking the bustle of the mall, and they did have one for us. All in all, a great visit.

I reserved and requested a window seat - the more you request the more restaurants tend to put you at their worst table - they stuck as at the very end near the Staff entrance to the kitchen or back door. It was quieter but really? Since we were at the back sever kept forgetting us. She took longer to come to us. This is the first time I am disappointed with the service here. I love Bar Verde for their food, service and it is quite a nice place in the middle of all the chaos of the Eaton Centre. But failed this one time when I had invited colleagues and it was their first time

Food has been good but my last 3 visits service was super slow. Took forever to get a bill. Once food is served, no one comes back to check in. Have had to chase down the bill the last 2 times. When it is lunch time, people like to get in and out quickly.

Fabulous service, excellent menu. Had the Steak Salad. Arguably the best salad dressing I have ever had on a steak salad. The server was attentive and the food came out of the kitchen in record time. Overall it was an excellent experience and definitely will be going back! .

It was Wednesday evening and we decided to have a quick dinner at Bar Verde. We chose the daily soup which was chicken pot pie and we shared the daily special - fried gnocchi. For dessert we shared the coconut profiteroles which were large and delicious. Our server Laura was outstanding and was very helpful in making our selection. It was a great unplanned evening and we will be returning to Bar Verde.

I enjoyed the food, however I found it to be too expensive. For pasta with shrimp you ask 33$ + tax + tip (and the smallest tip is 18%), this is definitely too much for one plate of pasta :-(. In the future I may try to look for a better value somewhere else.

Food was good, I called ahead and reminded of the bday, and also when arrived and still the waiter forgot. Also, we did not see our waiter most of time - we had requested extra sauce for pasta, that was not brought, we asked the manager that was close by and then ask our waiter again .... Overall a ok experience, good was excellent - but the service although corteous, really lacked. Maybe because it was end of rush hour? We had a 1pm reservation.

A good and very convenient spot for a lighter dinner before attending live theater in the neighbourhood. While the food is not exciting, neither was it disappointing. The server was very pleasant and attentive, and had no problem getting us out in plenty of time to make the performance.

We were delighted when our server readily agreed that the " background" music was too loud and had it turned down. It made all the difference and led the way to an enjoyable early pre theatre meal with friends.

Appetizers were good but the main meals were lacking in flavour big time. Fries were so hard and burnt.

The service was absurd. I am a person who teaches nearby at Ryerson University

I chose it for an informal business meeting with a colleague from York University over brunch at the end of term and before the holidays

The server rushed us to start asking what we wanted before our coats were off Then when my colleague (my guest) asked about brunch she was told to look at the menu. We were treated with impatience and dismissively.

Once we were served our meal we never saw the server again. She completely disappeared. We had to ask another server for coffee refills - she of course was reluctant and said she would tell our server. Still the server never showed again. I had to let the wait staff in another section our (rude) server was MIA

I was embarrassed to have recommended the place

Acoustics are always challenging in Bar Verde. This makes conversation difficult. Perhaps lower the volume (I’m not sure if that’s the optimal suggestion; music enhances experience).
Otherwise... BV remains my choice at TEC

Noise level should include option for “too loud” as like most restaurants these days the noise level dominates rather than adding to the background ambience

Friendly, helpful server. Wonderful ambiance, we had a booth overlooking the mall, very festive. Food was delicious and served in a timely manner. Server had asked what time our theatre production began and was conscious ensuring we finished in plenty of time. This was my second visit to this restaurant and I look forward to many more. By the way, I washrooms were incredible too.

We were there during happy hour and the prices were great! But we had to really press the server to give us a happy hour menu.
We ordered one of each appetizer and our favourite was the chicken tacos. We had a window seat and the view into the Eaton Centre was really nice, it was decorated for the Christmas holidays!

Love Bar Verde. Great Negroni, great affogato, mains are good at reasonable pricing. Service is good with one major hiccup every single time....takes forever to get that affogato and the bill.

Was compensated for the tardiness today but that’s not always the case. Servers are always friendly.
