    A friend of mine told me about this restaurant. He said it was outstanding and wasn’t sure how it didn’t get on his radar. Well, it wasn’t on mine either! I looked it up and realized it was the old Meadowbrook country club and apparently we were eating right around the 14th hall! Very well appointed great service good ambience the food was outstanding! We definitely go back!

    Positives: great bar. Attentive server who answered knowledgeably about gluten free options. Nice setting with request for booth honoured. Feedback: small portions, poor value. Lack of menu choice.high priced kids meal without any drink or dessert included. 15 dollars for small buttered noodles. Wine pours small. One mixed drink, two glasses of wine. Two mid priced mains and a kids meal. 170 dollars.

    Verbena is definitely a 5 review stars restaurant. I had the fabulous lobster & crab roll on their delicious Parker House rolls, and my brother had the pork chop. He commented that this was the best pork chop he had ever eaten -- moist, tender and properly cooked! I gave "service" only 3 stars because our server was more interested in talking to her friends at another table than in checking what we needed. Eveything else was as expected at Verbena -- perfect!

    Your restaurant makes my wife and I feel like we are not in Prairie Village, Kansas. It really is like being in wine country or Europe. Menu items were executed flawlessly and it was the best overall dining experience that we have had in a long time. It was great to see that Fabio is still delivering fantastic hosptilality and service. Keep up the good work and we will look forward to coming back. Thank you for the special experience.

    Beautiful place, the lobster bisque was maybe the best I've ever had. The potato chip appetizer was excellent. Cassie was a great server and gave us excellent advice on the menu. The appetizers and small plates were very appealing, but the entrees seemed a little vanilla against them. Very nice experience overall and we will be back soon.

    I was wrong. I resisted going to Verbena because something told me it would be stodgy and stale. I quickly learned that Verbena is an adult version of bright, lively, and inspired! The Hamachi Crudo was a spectacular summer starter. The amberjack, tossed with a light vinaigrette & shaved fennel served notice that something special was in the air. Our waiter, Kirk, convinced me to try the scallops. Placed on a bed of broccoli puree and a delightful array of seasonal relish, this entree was memorable indeed. We also enjoyed a simple summer squash side that added just the right touch. Add in the gorgeous setting (sit outside - Mother Nature permitting) and you have a very special place in store!

    Beet salad was excellent. I had the Beef Tartare that I wish had a bit more flavor, but was delicious. Creme Brulee excellent as was both of the wines we had (champagne and a Montrachet off the reserve list, truly fine!)

    I'd never heard of Verbena when a friend took me there recently. I was so impressed with everything about it! Our booth was quiet even though it was close to the bar. The menu selections were so creative and unusual...and beyond delicious! Our waitress was attentive and friendly. It's my new favorite place to eat and take out-of-town guests in the metro area!

    The wait staff was great, and it was a very pleasant ambience. The special salad, which was melons and tomatoes and other things, was fantastic. My wife had shrimp and grits; the shrimp were good and we loved the grits, but the dish was swimming in oil, and she ended up pretty uncomfortable overnight. I had salmon and it was very well prepared but it had a glaze on it that was simply too salty. So I would call this a frustrating near miss.
