    The drinks are on the higher cost end and tasted ok. The food is what shone. Each person's meal was nothing short of immaculate. I had to taste my friends dish that came with popcorn! Scallops and steak were cooked to perfection. The server was sweet, but never even asked if we wanted to be billed separately and had to go back to get that right after bringing one bill to the table. Overall, amazing.

    The food was exceptional. Every course was truly very good. Our only feedback relates to the comfort of the dining experience. Considering how nice Verbena is, the chairs might have been the most uncomfortable I’ve ever encountered. Just a very odd choice for such a great dining experience otherwise.

    Lovely space, attentive service and great food! The cocktail menu is inventive, and wine list is extensive. I had the Manhattan to start, made with Verbena's rye, distilled in KC. The roasted beet salad and shrimp and grits entree were delicious. Lastly, an affogato for dessert. Pricey for a girls night dinner, but hey, why not? Can't wait to try their fall menu soon.

    Ceaser salad was a more acidic than creamy. Strong on anchovies and parmesan cheese. Crumbled croutons. Overall it was good but @ $12 I wouldn't order it again. Main course wasuch better. Pork chop was way better than the salad. I enjoyed it. The pork chop was moist. The sweetness from the peach, went well with the pickled peppers and salt from the pork. Shallots were fried up in bacon fat. The bed of sweet corn was balanced by chili sauce, giving it a bit of depth. It wasn't as good as the pork but decent. Overall, the salad or scallops were not memorable. The pork chop you will remember. Service was very nice. They dinning area is cozy with the bar in the same space. The TV in the bar adjacent took away from the atmosphere.

    Disappointed. I had heard it was good, but we found it fell short. First, who thought parallel parking was a good idea? They don’t even teach it in driver’s ed now. Not all cars can park themselves. Noise level even in a booth made hearing people across the table difficult. No Prosecco, no goat cheese. The rolls were outstanding as was the peanut butter pie, but the rest of the food was just okay. Not great. Service was slow, but that’s true almost everywhere due to staff shortages. The host was welcoming and held the door open for us as we were leaving. Sorry, we won’t be back.

    The manager seated us when we arrived and we told him we'd like to discuss reserving a private room for a woman's luncheon in October. He told us he was "too busy" too talk then, even though there was no one else in sight. We tracked him down when we were ready to leave but he handed us a business card and told us to email him. Very rude! Our waiter totally ignored us once the food arrived.

    A friend and I went to lunch. I would have given everything 5 stars except for the service. Empty restaurant when we arrived and host tried to seat us at a table in between other four tops. We requested a booth and he said he might be able to manage it if he shuffled things around. For the entire lunch, there were two other tables occupied in the entire restaurant inside. Those tables were never seated. Sadly the host was also the server and only returned after our meal came to bring me more iced tea and never offered a refill of my friend’s Diet Coke. The manager did that after the meal. The food was absolutely delicious, and I will definitely return because of it and the ambiance.

    Went for my husbands birthday. The courses were paced really well, we got the rolls and ceviche which were both incredible and then the linguini with clams. Prices were high but portions were reasonable and the flavor was outstanding. Had a great vibe, we would definitely go back!

    The wine was an excellent choice that complemented our dinner of pork chops and chicken breast. Absolutely incredible feast. My only critique was that I wish it was a bit more quiet so I can focus on my fiancé a bit more. Other than that our Maître d’ was very respectful.

    Great place for lunch. I had the Caesar salad with chicken breast. My friend had the Verbena wedge with chicken as well. We both had a cup of gazpacho. The rice pudding desert was delicious, perfect for sharing. Everything was a taste delight. We will be back.

Perfect combination of flavor and texture! Great service, beautiful view, and a wonderful evening celebrating a friend’s birthday!

    Had a lovely evening! arrived 15 min prior to our reservation. Started at the Bar requesting a favorite Aperol Spritz, then sat outside on the beautiful Patio enjoying the ambiance of comfy seating, party lights, & fountains. Our son & daughter in law joined us and we 4 had a delicious dinner experience out on the veranda with high end service and 5 star entree’s! Never disappoints!
