Experience was nice. Space was comfortable. Service was nice. Server was very nice. Food was only OK. Green Salad was not great, very plain. Grilled Shrimp appetizer was very good. Spinach pie appetizer was very good. Pasta Veranda (I think) was just a plain pasta dish with a vodka-like sauce. It was what I wanted. My wife said it was very average, but I was happy with it on Saturday night. Her grilled shrimp entrée was good, her risotto very tasty but too al dente for her liking. Overall underwhelmed considering the reviews we read on OpenTable. Not fabulous or wonderful!

I've dined here since the place opened- several times, initially was so amazing. The last experience wasn't as great. Still wonderful service and staff but the food was not as tasty as before. I was surprised and a bit disappointed.

Veranda is always amazing!!!!
They ALWAYS prepare perfectly.
Love this restaurant. Our server Daniel was attentive, and took great care in making sure we were happy.
Veranda serves amazing salads, delicious appetizers and their main course never disappoints.
If you want to go as basic as a burger they are always on their game/ it is bar none- steakhouse quality.
Their outdoor dining areas is lovely.

Beautiful evening-we sat outside to lovely music - one doesn't even realize they are on Northern Blvd.
We had a very attentive waiter - constantly checked on our level of satisfaction. Zucchini chips are beyond amazing - Loved my Moscow Mule - food met our expectations.

Veranda is a Queens restaurant with Manhattan prices. Having said that, they have a varied menu and the food is generally good and well presented. However, I have to say that the lemon potatoes must have elevated my blood pressure because they were way too salty. The hostess and waitress were A plus.

I was visiting from Philly and came across this quaint little restaurant not expecting much, but it really impressed me. The food was fresh and cooked to perfection. The burger was delicious and the grilled chicken sandwich was excellent! We put this on our list for future visits for sure.

Went to Veranda to celebrate a birthday. Everything was great - the food and the service. We ordered from the price fixe menu, which was a good value at 3 courses for $35. I have no complaints and would definitely go there again. The only disappointment is that the staff didn’t know we were celebrating a birthday - even though it was noted in the reservation.
