    Ask for AUSTIN! The best waiter! I’ve never had a better experience. He made my friend’s birthday dinner so incredibly special! The food - phenomenal! The drinks - incredible! Inside or outside - both are wonderful! Ask Austin about his friend’s (the bartender)’s drink! It’s a cucumber martini (but so much more). It’s so so so phenomenal! I wish it was on the menu!!! 100/10 experience. I can’t say anything better

    The food was creative and delicious. We spent a lot of time trying to figure out how they made certain dishes. The only slight downsides were the charcuterie board and the lack of dessert options. We had the meatballs, burrata, steak and short rib. All were fantastic.

    What a wonderful experience! All of it--the food the beverages and service were all outstanding. Thanks to Amber and her smile and professionalism and great recommendations, it was the best experience. Red snapper, salad, and prosciutto/melon appetizer were all wonderful as were the cocktails Amber suggested. (Kudos also to that great bartender; he was also the host but I didn't get his name). It was a hot day out and Verbena was the perfect oasis. Thanks Verbena, Amber & bartender! (Tried to upload photos but the opentable app did not work..will try later)

    Yummy Sunday brunch!!! We made reservations for three and were seated promptly on the beautiful patio in the shade. Our server, Analicia, was AMAZING! She had great recommendations and was super attentive and friendly. As the sun crept out, she made sure to bring an umbrella over without us even asking. The food was delicious as were the drinks! Mille Fuille for the win! Would definitely return here when in Austin.

    First time going to Verbena and it did not disappoint. Amber was very attentive and made sure to give us some great recommendations whether it was for cocktails or entrees. The ceviche, Roasted Bone Marrow, and Slow Braised Short Rib were all delicious and highly recommend. Thank you amber for making our first time at Verbena memorable!

    Recently ‘found’ Verbena and have added it to our list of favorites. Love the courtyard seating! The brunch menu has some standard fare like the American egg breakfast which I ordered. It was good and the portion was good-sized. I enjoyed it. My partner had the Continental which was Brie cheese, a portion of prosciutto , a large croissant, and mixed berries/pineapple. All of the selections were fresh, and it was a nice option instead of eggs or an omelette. Our waiter, Austin, was friendly and helpful. Her coffee was served hot, and my iced latte was good.

    Verbena provides a excellent dining experience that will surely impress whoever you are with. The ambiance is modern, sleek and chill. The food is excellent. For example, the rib eye was buttery smooth and cooked just right to be evenly heated (ask for medium). The flavor was plentiful and yet pure. By contrast, by wife’s flank steak had a tangy sauce that paired well with the salty sear of her steak. The potato cubes that were sliced at a 1/16” pitch and roasted to a crispy exterior. Parking is simple. Just valet at the Canopy Hotel and walk over.

    I went for lunch on a Tuesday. The food was delicious! We had sharable apps and walked away very satisfied. The waitstaff was efficient. They had few tables though and may have benefitted from a tiny bit more care. They didn't ask if we wanted anything other than water, and felt rushed when they did come by. I have a feeling they were probably prepping for a busier evening.
