    Verbena is an absolute hidden gem. My only criticism is the price for the portion size in some cases. My scallop dish had 4 scallops and 3 small clams for $39. The dish was delicious nonetheless. Others at the table had linguini and clams (also too few clams) and the spinach/ricotta tortelli. All wonderfully prepared and very flavorful. The Brie appetizer was the best I’ve ever had. The service was top notch and the restaurant and bar are very classy. Drinks were expertly prepared at the bar and the bartender and server were very knowledgeable about wine selection. Can’t wait to go back.

    The place is beautiful but my husband and our male guest tried to order a top shelf tequila and bourbon and, after going through 3 or 4 different options which weren’t available, had to settle for something else. That was very disappointing!

    Our food for a party of four--lobster/crab rolls, beef short ribs, Scottish salmon--was outstanding. For that matter, the salad and the lobster bisque were also great. Our server, Fabio, was attentive and on the ball. We did have a noisy, annoying group of football fans cheering on some bowl game (take it to a bar), and I understand why they weren't asked to leave. The only serious problem was the price: with a very nice tip, our group of four for lunch was just over $400. Lunch. Sorry, but that's a lot.

    It might have been 12 degrees outside but Verbena was warm and cozy on the inside. The subtle Christmas decor made the meal actually about the food. Baked Brie with delicately sliced green apples and drizzled with honey on warm crusty bread, the perfect start. The lobster bisque was velvety smooth and enhanced with fresh tarragon leaves. I had the fish and chips. This batter coating was fried deliciously crisp along with the French fries that had enough flavor on their own that no condiments were needed. My two dining companions seemed the enjoy their meal. We have already decided that we would be returning with other friends!

    Excellent dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our only issue was trying to pick what we wanted off the menu. We ended up with two small plates, three entrees and dessert between the two of us! All of our selections were flavorful and prepared spot on.

    I joined two ladies for a late lunch (around 2:00) on a weekday and by that time, there were just a few tables being served so it was quiet. The atmosphere is a contemporary version of traditional finishes with nice carpentry, tile floors, impressive bar, and private booths (as well as tables). The outdoor seating looks lovely as well. The service was very good. The bar was out of stock of the wine we ordered, but we just ordered something else. I had the wedge salad with medium rare salmon (cooked perfectly) - the wedge was a trio of pretty petite heads of romaine with delish toppings including egg, tomato, cucumber and lardon and rye breadcrumbs and mini croutons.

    My wife and I had an anniversary dinner scheduled for 6:30 PM. We decided to arrive early (6:00 PM) so we could have drinks at the bar. There were plenty of seats available at the bar, so we were seated quite quickly. After about 5 minutes of waiting for the bartender to come by, we were served delicious craft cocktails. A few minutes later, a server came up and asked that since we were already here, we would need to get seated at our table or lose it. Kind of unfortunate that we had to be rushed like that, but we both understood. We still had about 10 minutes until our reservation time. The dining experience was great. The food (appetizers, main course) were well prepared. The additional round of drinks and the dessert round were also wonderful. Then, something strange happened. We were ignored for about 25-30 minutes. No one, and I mean no one, came up to us for about almost a half hour. Our server walked by, every time she was at a nearby table. The manager was also walking by, but never glanced in our direction. We were never asked if we needed anything else or if we wanted our check. It was the most odd and uncomfortable 25-30 minutes we’ve ever had for a dining experience. Overall, it was a positive experience, as the quality of cocktails and food was sensational. We could have done without being ignored for such a long time, however.

    This place which got rave reviews after first opening still continues to impress. Food is well prepared and delicious. We eat out a lot and have tried virtually every venue in the Greater KC area (including JoCo) and this one ranks at the top in all categories. Service was excellent, attentive but not overly so. Really cannot find anything to criticize or suggest for improvement. We were impressed and expect to return often.
