              The Veranda was an absolutely beautiful experience! I went with my mother, a highschool girlfriend and her mother. The lavish hanging flower baskets, the immaculate lawn, the heart-shaped lake with gazebo were just stunning. In addition to the beautiful ambience, the food was sooo delicious and surprisingly it was very reasonably priced! We all thoroughly enjoyed out time at The Veranda.

              Wonderful location for a special brunch! Food is great and friendly staff. Eating outdoors on the terrace in CA is a treat. The only downside was that we were in full sun for the first hour of our meal. Some shade cover would have made the experience so much more enjoyable.

              The ambience was amazing. The BLTA was a BLT since they failed to include avocado. The bread was so hard it hurt the roof of my mouth. The bacon was somehow flavorless and too crunchy. The waitress didn’t check on us, and I had to flag her down. The sandwich was so bad they did take it off the check and were very polite about doing so. Others in my party did enjoy their food. May go again but won’t order a BLTA.

              Beautiful landscaping to look at while dining. I love the fact that if you dine there you can tour the botanical gardens at no charge. That’s a $7.50 saving per person. The menu is fresh and bright and always tasty. Service was excellent and very friendly.

              What a beautiful, serene, scenic place! We had heard from friends about The Veranda, but their words didn't do it justice. The ambiance, soft music in the background, beautiful table settings, are things that you just must experience in person. The service was impeccable and the food was superb. A great value at twice the price. Be sure to take a stroll through the gardens, too. We highly recommend and will be back!

              Two of us ordered the eggs Benedict and both plates were perfectly done. One of us ordered the BLTA and it was wonderful. The 4th member of our party ordered the French toast and it wasn't very good-dry and tasteless and seemingly overdone. The service was fabulous the appetizer great and the view spectacular. our 2nd time here-first time that something wasn't't as good as it sounded. will definitely be back.

              Had reservation at 10 for brunch. Arrived on time but had to wait to be seated. Service once seated was outstanding and food was amazing. If you haven't tried the Eggs Wellington it's worth a trip just for that. One of the most beautiful settings.

              We enjoyed our meal and walk of the grounds. Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the beignets for our appetizer and the Benedict Wellington was delicious. The only two negatives were the potatoes, because they were over cooked and the loud group of ladies next to us.

              The Veranda Restaurant is a very special restaurant uniquely located at the Grand Traditions Estate in the Beverly Manor. The food selection is plentiful and the food is not only delicious but presented in a beautiful way. For this type of ambiance you would expect to pay more. They also offer GF selections as well as GF bread. This is a place you don't want to miss. Enjoy!

              Wellington Eggs Benedict: Canadian bacon was thinner than a thin slice of lunch meat, eggs were runny and undercooked, and the puff pastry had a paperlike texture. Don't waste your money and appetite on this one.

              The best part of eating at the Veranda is just the beautiful experience offered from sitting outside on the patio and taking in the view of the surrounding greenery; it is so peaceful and beautiful. I had the Omelette and my girlfriend had the French Toast. She thought it was great although my omelette was nothing special and a little small. However, Holly's excellent service and just the serenity of our weekend brunch made up for it. It is a great place to go and just unwind for a few hours!

              Love this charming brunch Veranda! Only downside is how hard it is to get a reservation

              The staff was friendly. Food was decent but the view and the area was so beautiful.

              Outstanding experience! To be picky, our used settings were not removed before we left. Our server was excellent!☺️😊 Mike and Jane Anet
