Would be nice to have a few vegan options! Not one appetizer, need to change up salads by removing all cheese, dairy and honey based dressing. Only one entree that is grilled vegetables but the quinoa that is on the menu not available and risotto is substituted which is butter, cheese and dairy which doesn’t work for vegan diet. Would be nice to have more options

This is good for a change of pace. It’s loud but service is really good. Appetizer of cheese and crackers is minimal for the cost. If you can sit outdoors is very nice, less noisy. Traditional fare is more their forte.

Was outside on a gorgeous evening and the patio was packed and happy. Listened to a great singer on his guitar ad ate a wonderful meal. Two of the six items we ordered were not available, but other than that it was so enjoyable!

Food was good, not great. Place is a bit pricy for the quality you get. Overcharged for salad. Service was a little slow.
We were a bit disappointed.

The patio is lovely there. The service- everyone that we interacted with- were friendly and professional. That’s no small task today when everyone is struggling to find help. They were great!

We celebrated our silver anniversary at the same location as our wedding reception. Granted, it's changed hands a few times, but this dining experience was just as memorable. The ambiance was very lively for a drizzly day, but the bar was busy and the porch was packed with diners. It was very cozy and private in our corner of the restaurant area.
My husband's filet was done to perfection and my glazed salmon was excellent! I'd never before been asked how I wanted it done. The polenta was an interesting and tasty addition to my meal.
Our top-notch server graciously offered us a complimentary dessert, which we opted to take home. You can't go wrong with chocolate cake.
We definitely will go back and not wait another 25 years! We highly recommend The Veranda!!

The food here never disappoints! This visit we enjoyed happy hour on the lovely, expansive patio. This is one the best happy hours around with excellent food and drink options. I only wish it lasted until 7pm, but you cannot have everything. :) Although staffing issues exist everywhere, our service was on point!

The menu was good and the food was tasty. Not spectacular, but worth another try. Our server was very personable and outgoing, but the service was slow for no apparent reason. We ate inside, but I would consider going back to eat outside - the patio area is beautifully done.

Anniversary dinner
Everything was disappointing from service to food
We will not go back.
Prices are very high for a restaurant with no ambiance.
Olive Garden would have been better.
Sorry we did not go to Fleming’s which we usually do.

Went there for first time. Sat outside the patio is beautiful. My husband ordered ribs. They tasted like they were in oven all day and been over cooked. Brussels sprouts again were over cooked and mushy. The Mac and cheese was amazing. I ordered stuffed veal chopped. It was very fatty and was not stuffed with anything but one mushroom. They did take my meal off and our drinks were paid for by the chef. I was so excited to try this place was very disappointed.

The first time we sat at the bar and we were totally ignored even though there were only 3 other people at the bar and hardly anyone in the restaurant, and the food wasn’t that good. On the second try, we sat in the dining room. The service was good and the food so-so. We tried it one last time on the patio. Service was good again, but the food was terrible and I ended up hardly eating. I wouldn’t recommend. Three times and your out.

Nice patio seating. Server London was very nice and helpful. Food quality is the problem. Calamari way too salty. Meatballs bland. Soup cold. Pasta Bolognese tasteless and lukewarm. Will not return.

We enjoyed our meal at Veranda - cocktails, food, and wine list are all very good. The outdoor dining area was full so we ate in the dining room, and it was somewhat chaotic. Servers and other staff were rushing through the area constantly. Our server was also tending bar and her attentiveness to our table was lacking (delays with orders, water glasses not refilled, etc.).

We sat outside on the patio and it was beautiful! Our server seemed like she was a bit busy, as she was the only one taking care of a rather large patio. I ordered a salad and the ribs, and my boyfriend ordered the Cornish hen. The chef came out to inform us they were

We realize that, as restaurants try to reopen, there will be some glitches in the flow. The staff frequently apologized for the wait and gave us dessert gratis. The wait was exceptionally long and some of the food was not hot when it was delivered. Recognizing that this might be an anomaly from usual service, we give the Veranda the benefit of the doubt and will try on a weeknight later on this summer to see if the service from the kitchen gets better. Our server was courteous and helpful with wine and food selections. The wait staff and management continued to check on us. We were grateful for their attentiveness.
