    Three of us got their signature grouper dish and were disappointed. Fish didn’t seem very fresh and the crab topping was bland. One of us got their scallops and said they were excellent. Our service was very attentive.

    We had a fantastic experience at Verandah! The atmosphere was delightful - quiet enough for conversation but still lively. Our waiter, Michael, was outstanding. He was professional, knowledgeable about the menu, and incredibly friendly. His recommendations were perfect, and his attentiveness made the entire evening feel special. The menu itself was unique and exciting. We had a hard time choosing because everything sounded delicious! Ultimately, I went with the perfectly cooked scallops, and my wife had the mouthwatering swordfish. Both dishes were beautifully presented and bursting with flavor. Verandah is a hidden gem, and a big part of that is the exceptional service. Thanks to Michael for making our night unforgettable! We can't wait to come back and try something new next time.

    The most superlative element to our experience at the Veranda was the service provided by Michael. He knew the menu, could describe the options with the clarity and enthusiasm of someone who actually experienced the various dishes, was completely attentive and anticipative of our needs, and served us with elegance and politeness. The most professional and “ complete” server I have ever experienced. The restaurant, any restaurant, is lucky to have him on their staff.

    If I could give more stars, I would! Robert, the maitre ‘d greeted us warmly and took us to our lovely table. Michael, our waiter, was superb: knowledgeable, attentive, very pleasant , and very helpful with our course selections. We decided upon the Hot Blue Crab Dip and the truffle and potato soup as first courses. The local Grouper was our main dish and it was as outstanding as we had heard. Everything was prepared and presented very well and we enjoyed it all. We would highly recommend Veranda.

He was knowledgeable, professional, fun and made our experience exceptional. Food was magnificent. Chef is Top notch as well as pastry chef! Go and enjoy!

    The service was ok- we shouldn’t have to flag down our server for salt and pepper which should already be table-side or a steak knife. The food was not to our liking. While the iberico ham appetizer was tasty, the roasted figs had an unpleasant, undisclosed spice. They may have been unripe as well. The ground texture of the figs didn’t help. The pappardelle was severely under-salted, and I don’t use much salt at all. I had to continually add salt to the dish to make it palatable. The addition of whole thyme sprigs meant I was continually pulling out woody stems. I love fresh thyme- just not into ingesting twigs. The steak was ordered rare, but arrived medium- covered in undisclosed flowers and floating in brown gravy- also not on the menu. Either the steak knife was dull or the meat tough- or both. My dining partner gave up.

    Called ahead of time to ask about vegetarian options. They said that the chef can make a variety of options outside of the standard menu and shouldn’t be a problem. After we came to the restaurant, seemed that every request we had gotten denied so the half of my family that was vegetarian, ate mostly the sides like potatoes etc. I even asked if they could make a relatively simple pasta dish like cacio e Pepe and no one seemed to know what that was even after explaining. Also marked that it was my mom’s birthday that we were celebrating, and there was no mention of it or any effort to make her feel special. My food, the lamb pasta was decent but I wouldn’t come again for what we paid.

    Absolutely fantastic service and food. I have a dairy allergy and asked the server what I could do, he immediately offered me a meal, and didnt even have to ask the chef. He then brought out bread for the table, and pointed out what I could eat, and what I couldn’t eat. Extremely knowledgeable staff, and I could not recommend this place more!

    While the ambiance and service were great -the food not so much…. The best part of the dinner was the focaccia bread and the accompanying spreads. The wine list is lacking . My pasta Garganiella was an unappealing bowl of muck….Lamb tough and spinach stringy . However my husband’s scallops were perfect ! Not sure if we would return- too many other options on Amelia

    A hidden gem on Amelia Island. Food and service at the Verandah was great! Shawn, the manager, greeted us at the door and followed up by checking on our dining experience. Haydar and the support staff ensured our every needs were met. Chef Sam who leads the culinary team created every dish with creativity and soul. The Swordfish skewers, Whipped Feta, Truffle & Potato soup and Pappardelle pasta with duck confit was outstanding. Make Verandah a visit while at the resort.

    The food was absolutely extraordinary. All of the appetizers, particularly the aged ham, sourdough mushroom toast, and tapenade spread. The grouper main course was amazing, outdone only by the fresh homemade pasta with duck ragout. The service was likewise very dedicated—they sat our large group promptly even when we showed an hour early, and the servers checked in regularly to make certain we had everything. My one critique is the ambiance—the decor looks like something out of a middle-rate generic hotel lobby, and when we arrived the gate allowing cars to approach was closed, requiring us to walk through the rain. But for all that, the food frankly blew everyone away. Highly recommend!!!

    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.
