    Went for Valentines dinner, four course meal. Very creative menu, especially the oysters with a little eye dropper fill with a dressing for the oysters. I had the duck, and guess I’m not a fan of duck breast…just okay to me. They bought the tiramisu..it was rock hard! Offered another dessert…but declined. I thought meal was a little pricey for what you got. They did bring me a glass of champagne…well, about 1/2 of a cup…. Okay…couldn’t they have been a bit more generous?

    Dinner and drinks were outstanding! We had the Whisky Business and the Smokey Old Fashioned and they were both expertly made - unique, well balanced, and delicious. Appetizers and dinner were outstanding. The combination of flavors and textures were excellent. I am usually suspicious of seafood this far from the coast but it was excellent. The chef knows what his is doing. Our server Kirk was very knowledgeable and kind and the staff supporting him kept dinner moving at an efficient but relaxed pace. I highly recommend this restaurant for an adult evening out or business dinner.

    Great food, great location. They seem to always sit us next to the bar, which is lively, to say the least. I spent half the meal with some guy's butt in my face. Oh well, that's my bad for not requesting something further away.

    Verbena remains my current favorite place to dine, this time for a business lunch. The environment is perfect for conversation and the food always is exceptional. I had the Beef Tartare and the approach they take to this is excellent, the flash fried egg is a treat.

    My wife and I made a reservation for a spontaneous date night. We live right down the road and we love Verbena. Our serve (Taylor) really made our experience special. She made sure to accommodate to my wife’s dietary restrictions, made great recommendations about the menu and wine, and was extremely friendly and attentive even while being busy with a few other tables.

    Had the most wonderful meal. Matthew was so knowledgeable and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Everything was delicious! Will definitely come again when we are back in town. We enjoyed clam chowder, oysters, beet salad, crab and lobster roll on Parker House rolls and a chocolate cake with Nutella. It was all amazing!

    What a nice little hideaway in Prairie Village! We went for the first time yesterday for lunch. We were able to snag a quiet round booth in the corner in front of the window. Such a great place to relax, talk and enjoy lunch. The food was special. I loved the Bang Bang shrimp small plate and my husband raved about the salmon. We splurged on liquid dessert! The Eggnog was a hit and I loved the Cacoa Martini. Our server Matthew was kind and attentive and fun. We will be returning!

    The food has progressively gone downhill since opening. This was our favorite neighborhood restaurant but I’m quite positive that they have a new head chef/cook and their food has never been the same. Mediocre.

    Loved our server and our food! Cocktails were soooo good!! But, the drink size was a little small for the price IMO. The goat cheese small plate was perfection! I also had the clam chowder and it was very good! The bang bang shrimp was good, but the other two items were much better!
