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 dine here quite a bit because it is a wonderful dining experience - great staff & kitchen with great tasting, creative food. The porch & patio are wonderful locations to enjoy Summer with a laid back relaxing, yet pampered attitude.

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!

Went with a party of 10. Sat us right away and the wait staff was extremely attentive and helpful with ordering. Food was absolutely amazing and the wine was very solid value compared to other upscale restaurants. Beautiful patio with casual yet sophisticated ambiance. Will definitely be going back.

At this time, considering the situation with COVID, they had things covered about as well as could be expected. We were out on the patio on a beautiful summer evening, and seeing as how we necessarily had to be spaced apart further than would be normal, it actually made for an even more enjoyable experience. All our food was great and brought out in a timely way. We ate inside the restaurant about a year ago, and although the food was good the interior is rather drab and needs updated. The carpeting (never a good idea for a restaurant) looked pretty dingy and the vibe was that of a bit of neglect. Still in all, a nice place, especially if you’re out on the patio.

We were told Ticket was lost so we waited over 2 hours for food. When we did receive our food it was very salty and inedible. Staff was accommodating due to this and comped our bill.

Patio needed a good cleaning and outdoor furniture was not comfortable.

Everything about Veranda was really great, except for an extremely loud obnoxious man who was at the bar, and then the table next to us. He seemed to know one of the workers so nobody said anything to him, which kind of ruined the ambiance, but that aside, the restaurant was very nice. Everything we ordered was very good, the drinks were good, and the service was excellent as well, so I’m not faulting them because of a seemingly drunk guest. Definitely recommend it
