    What a wonderful experience. Everything was perfect. Drinks. Service. Atmosphere. Started with bruschetta.-exactly as it should be. I ordered the pappardelle pasta with shrimp and added scallops. Can honestly say it was some of the best pasta I’ve ever enjoyed. Wife had the chicken. She normally eats about half servings but finished this dish. Needles to say, she loved it! Next time we are nearby, we will return!

    We had a lovely dinner and the service was wonderful. The only thing we are wondering now is why our credit card was billed twice for our meal with two different final amounts. We are having to dispute this with the credit card company. Not impressed

    The food is not as good as it was the last time we were in Amelia island 2 years ago. The menu has gotten smaller and the food is not as impressive. When we came two years ago we were so impressed with the food. The service was great but the food lacked.

    Richard and Jing were excellent servers. They greeted us promptly and immediately asked about food allergies and sensitivities. One of our group is gluten free and one is gluten and dairy free. Richard had so many great suggestions and the food was absolutely delicious! We were celebrating a birthday and there were no desserts that were gf and df, not a problem, we are used to that. We decided to have martinis for dessert, which were fantastic! Then Richard appeared with a bowl of fresh strawberries with a birthday candle!! So surprised!! They even sang happy birthday! What a thoughtful way to handle a birthday celebration! We are still talking about how special it was, and how absolutely phenomenal the food and service were! Thank you, Verandah restaurant, Richard, and the chef for making this the best restaurant meal we’ve ever experienced.

    First time since pre-Covid at Amelia. Omni has done super job at Verandah! Just get house wine—don’t need $60 bottle. Crab dip outstanding, all fish—had snapper—delicious, homemade pasta shrimp, and gelato w coffee liqueur to die for! If you stay at Omni, ride the shuttle—only way to fly.

    We told the restaurant that we were celebrating our 40 th anniversary yet they set us in an area surrounded by groups with children. The rest of the restaurant was mostly senior citizens and no kids. The food was mediocre at best. The only item that was great was the bread Olives and tomato spread that comes with dinner.

    An evening to remember As we walked in the restaurant , we were greeted by Hostess Victoria with a huge smile on her face .after little chit chat, we were seated by the window overlooking to tennis courts . Our server , Tesa , greeted us and went over the both drink and dinner menu. We each started our evening with Whistle pig bourbon old fashion and it was an excellent choice. We were group of 4 guys with huge appetite and ordered multiple apps, salad and pasta entrees . Tesa,our server , mentioned pasta is freshly made daily in their kitchen so we each ordered different pasta dish . Each dish had its own proper garnishes and presentation was above the expectation. As we were latest table to leave the restaurant , we never felt rushed or hurried, everyone we encounter were friendly and hospitable.

    Fantastic service from the bar with Carol. Awesome dinner service with Walker. Delicious homemade pastas, especially my ravioli with mushrooms and truffle oil and my husband's linguini. We also had a very unique tableside presentation of flaming parmesan served with grilled flatbread for appetizer. Delicious! And the meal began with complementary focaccia bread, tomato sauce and a big jar of mixed olives. It was overall an extremely satisfying and pleasant evening, and we will return!

    Have eaten twice at the Verandah for dinner. Very consistent food quality, and good service both times. Wine selection is on the weak side. This is a pricey restaurant, so be prepared.

    It was extremely noisy when we arrived. There was a very large group and they were very loud! Alex, our server was great! Very attentive and polite. We were enjoying visiting with our friends and fortunately not in a hurry. I’m sure the kitchen got a bit behind because of the large group. The hostess came to our table and apologized for the long wait and offered a discount on our meal, which we all thought was extremely nice! The food was hot and delicious when it arrived. We do enjoy dining at the Verandah and look forward to eating there again!
