Dinner with my wife and 2 of my 6 children. We did have to request a seat change because of what I assume was the children. I was unhappy with the initial table but the hostess did move us to a different location in the same room. This place is not really a family dining type of atmosphere, which I knew from a few previous visits but I do like to teach my children how to behave in nice places, so I thought I would give it a chance. Our server was great with suggestions after we asked and made sure I knew the specials as soon as we sat down, giving time to decide. Drinks were very good and cheese plate too. My wife enjoyed Bolognese and I had the Rack of Lamb special...it was exceptional. The server made sure to list of kid’s options too. Desserts were outstanding. A stop by the (I assume) kitchen manager during the meal and a check in from the house manager post meal are the little things I truly appreciate. Overall 5 star experience and would recommend for couples/adult dinner. I would probably not bring children here again, through no fault of Veranda, I understand the vibe and think it’s a great date night experience. It was a chance to teach my young son how we act in a place with lower music/lighting versus his usual burger place with loud ambience and endless fries. Thanks for a great experience and we will be back soon as a couple.

Upon on arriving the host was rude, the dining area cold since they are going outside to the stupid igloos - food was totally average but service sucked - had to call them over on several occasions - last time we ever go to this place

Just a hot tip, the patio heaters release almost zero heat! We froze our butts off! Jason was excellent, BTW!

We love Veranda. It's been a mainstay of our restaurant repertoire for years. My parents started coming here about 10 years ago (when it was under a different name and ownership).

The food and service are consistently outstanding. This night, I enjoyed a lovely pork chop with bleu cheese, a combination I had not before considered. It was wonderful!

Have been many times and the food is excellent! I think the Cornish Game Hen is the best I've ever had. The risottos are amazing and I absolutely love the Pear salad and the Caprese too when they have it. The service also couldn't be better! Always treated well and taken care of. The head chef is spectacular!!

Must have a new chef or he has honed his skills. All of our food was delicious. The French onion soup on the patio as seasons change delightful. We recommend.

This is our favorite restaurant in the area. The food is always outstanding and delicious. We are consistently treated as old friends. Tonight, I enjoyed an outstanding seafood pasta, while my partner loved a unique stuffed pork chop.

Thanks for another lovely evening.

Thursday is date night for us and we discovered live music at the Veranda patio. Stuffed yellow peppers had just the right amount of ‘heat’ to break a little sweat. We both had a salad and we shared jalapeño corn bread. All delicious.
The guitar and singing was bluesy. A very talented artist.

We had an awesome dinner on the patio. We met the owner Matt who could not have been more accommodating. It was perfectly socially distanced and so clean. We felt comfortable and really taken care of by our server Hailey. The happy hour prices are great with some really nice options. Highly recommend going here!
