    The scallop dish was probably the best I’ve ever tasted (and I come from New Bedford, MA, the scallop capital of the world). My wife was equally pleased with her butternut squash ravioli dish. Our server, Tarvit, was outstanding- very warm, welcoming and professional! Verandah is my favorite restaurant on Amelia Island.

    Every dish we received had a great presentation and was worthy of a picture! All the dishes were satisfying and tasted great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone for some fine dining. The atmosphere was a little loud as there were many people there, but the booth we had made our dining private and able to have a nice anniversary experience.

    We were staying at the resort and went there to celebrate our 25th anniversary. They were fine with our request for a slow, multi-course dinner. The tuna carpaccio was the thinnest I’ve ever seen and the flavors were weird. Caesar salad was limp and uninspired. We asked for bread and the waiter warned us — twice — not to eat too much and ruin our appetites. Grouper was over cooked and not particularly flavorful, as was the seafood tagliatelle. Tiramisu was literally half a piece. Other dessert was just weird. Waiter gave us shots of a yummy orange cello for our anniversary (which we found out later they give to all patrons). Ultimately had good service, mediocre food and no real acknowledgment of our 25th anniversary for $250 before tip. Not impressed and more than a little disappointed.

    An outstanding meal, best overall menu for Restaurant Week. 2 starters, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts for $50. Great service, very well prepared food. Only comment was the glass of wine was overpriced, without a choice being asked for by staff. Definitely will add to our Top of AI list.

    I made my reservation two weeks in advance and was disappointed on arriving to a partially filled restaurant and be seated at a table next to the service doorway and the service prep station. There were many empty tables in the main part of the restaurant which were never filled during our visit. The initial server did not return and another server took their place but was obviously busy with tables elsewhere and after 30 minutes we flagged him down to start placing our order. We felt we had been shuffled off to a side and ignored. The food was excellent and enjoyed by all. We found the entrance poorly light and not handicap friendly, you are not able to drop handicapped guests off at the door unless you are a guest of the Omni Hotel and the walk from the parking area was long and poorly lit.

    We came on Restaurant Week and ordered the lamb special, which was NOT special. The staff was friendly and attentive. The salad was nicely presented, the deserts (tiramisu and gelato) were excellent. The main dishes that we ordered were the weak point on the dinner. Under a fancy Italian name, we were served a modest portion of what was really lamb pasta. We ordered the house wine with our meals and were blown away with the exorbitant prices.

    Our Christmas 2023 dinner was half the price but double the quality of the disappointing brunch we had at the Ritz! The four-courses were all delicious and generous portions: focaccio bread with tomato sauce and olive tepanade & amuse bouche, lobster bisque, crab-topped grouper, and ricotta cake. The service was 5*. The ambiance was beautiful and the place had a positive vibe. The meal was spot on and a good value. We'd recommend Verandah and we're looking forward to going back. Skip the over-priced, disappointing Ritz and eat here for 5* value at 4* prices.
