Great Place to go. Great Food, very cordial employees and awesome patio dining.
We had a great time at the Verde Cocina Mother's Day brunch! Even though it was totally packed the service and food were great!
Went there once before and was not impressed. This time (1 or 2 years later) we went for Mother's Day brunch and everything was excellent! We will definitely return.
This is a great restaurant. Friends went there to try the new brunch, some of us new to Verde Cocina and some who go quite often. We had great food - the avocado toast was fabulous and so was the bacon, and the chilaquiles and the rest were delicious too. Service was friendly, helpful and prompt. We will be back!
Very tasty gluten free, what's not to love? Good service and excellent desserts!
Good food and service!
Meals are very tasty, lots of veggies, flavorful and the service was prompt and friendly. Highly recommend.
Second time at restaurant and the service and food was great.
Simon the server IS THE BEST! Simon the server IS THE BEST! Simon the server IS THE BEST!
The food was very good with options for gluten-free and vegan, however the service was very slow, at least for this first visit.
We had a wonderful server....unfortunately I didn't pay the bill, so didn't catch his name nor had the receipt to see who served us....we were a party of 8....and he was awesome!
Service was slow and inattentive. Will not return.
This was our first visit and we will definitely be back. Entree portions were generous with veggies which we really appreciated. The mole was outstanding!!! The white garbanzo beans were delicious. My teen daughter loved them and she usually won’t touch garbanzos. The guacamole was disappointing only in spice. No apparent added spice but generous with chunks of fresh avocado. Will definitely come back soon for the Mole!
Nothing about this restaurant makes us want to return
Great service and fantastic food. Love all the Gluten Free and Paleo options here!
Great tasting food. My wife who has Celiac, loved the French toast and the Carne Asada breakfast plate was perfect.
The food is loaded with vegetables instead of cheese and refried beans. The vegetables bare fresh and cooked well. The restaurant is large so getting a seat is usually possible at any time.
Not bad. Healthy food in a nice clean atmosphere with nice folks and lots of drink options. But overall somewhat uninspired and mundane.
Special of the day was so fabulous. Service attentive but not intrusive. Great neighborhood spot
Meh. Over priced mediocre food with average service
Nice Mexican food with good service. I've never seen it crowded.
First of all, their guacamole with warm tortillas is soooo good, sometimes I drop by just for this. On the days I also order dinner, I either get the paleo plate if I'm eating paleo that day or enchiladas if I'm not. They had a pork and goat cheese enchilada on special the other night that was so delicious....over easy egg on top. Yummm! I always feel like I'm eating healthy and I love the way they add vegetables to dishes you wouldn't expect....not to mention their breakfasts are super delicious too.
Food was great, as always. Service this time was terrible. It's like they forgot we were there 🤷♂️
I loved it here came with a group for brunch! The food was amazing and service was great too! Love that they are all
Gluten free :)
Service was great, food was delicious and the staff were very friendly. Look forward to going again.
Food was tasty and innovative, but not "peculiar". Service and setting were very good. Seating was comfortable. Prices were quite reasonable. I'd recommend it to other people.
Finding a gluten-free restaurant was so wonderful. The food was amazing!
Meals were large so you feel like you are getting your money's worth. Ceviche was with lots of large shrimp. We got ours with chips though nice to have a cucumber option. Carne asada was tender. Seafood medley had a delicious broth. Too full to have dessert. Nice farm to fork but with Mexican food. Not fancy, but not divy. Nice decor. Reminds me of nice mexican restaurants in CA or AZ.
Good food. It's great that it is a completely gluten-free restaurant as our son's girlfriend is celiac. Our daughter's boyfriend is vegan and they had several vegan options which was fantastic. Dining out altogether is a challenge so finding this restaurant was a blessing.
We had a wonderful experience as usual, great service,very efficient and always greeted with a pleasant smile. We have a pretty large group to serve in a short period of time and you always work with us so well.Our office will definitely be back again soon! Thanks Again :)
Our server was fantastic, kind, knowledgeable, prompt and attentive.
We had a party that included vegetarians, picky kids, adamant meat-eaters, and one whose only requirement is a good glass of wine. Verde Cocina met every single one of our needs. The food was creative, delicious, fresh, local, and huge portions! We had the quesadilla of the day with local chorizo and a gorgeous salad on top of it. I believe they make their own tortillas, too! My mom had the rockfish tacos, which included an enormous portion of fish! My husband's carne asada was delicious, as were the papas con queso with smoked pork belly (melt in your mouth delicious). Our vegetarian friends were very happy with their gorditas dishes, and my picky 5 year old who regularly refuses to eat at restaurants, almost licked her plate clean of the scrambled eggs they had on the kids menu. The ambiance is warm, bright, cozy, and friendly. We ate on the patio outside, and while I was a bit concerned about being drowned out by the 26 fwy traffic, it didn't bother us at all. We will be back!
If you like vegetarian/vegan Mexican food, this is your place. We had a big (6) family dinner here on a hot summer night. The service was a tad slow, but to be fair, they had a huge rush and handled it very well. The drinks were great. The food (I like my meat) was really good. My vegan daughter was over the moon.
Would highly recommend.
We’ll be going back for sure.
Great food, service has been a little slow the past few times we have gone, but nice people. Great drinks and delicious food.
As usual this place always has fresh vegetables incorporated into their food which makes it so delicious
We really like this venue. Unfortunately on this occasion there was a very large birthday party with many many children running around and the volume made it difficult to hold a conversation in our party. Cocktails are always yummy-watermelon, cucumber margarita and the rockfish taco special was superflavor packed. Will certainly go back the the noise and uncontrolled kids was bothersome
So stingy with the chips!!
Lots of vegan options. Delicious, fresh food.
Food was excellent. Nachos were ok-cheese wasn’t very melted and chips were sparse. Had to request salsa several times. Dinner portions were very generous and the scratch margaritas were delicious!
