The food is excellent- I especially enjoy their mole sauce;it’s the best at any Mexican restaurant in the area.

They could use a couple more umbrellas outside otherwise it’s a nice patio.

Be prepared for the overall music outside to be loud.

Wasn’t as good as I recall from Tacos Tequila and Margaritas in 2018. The guacamole was decent. It was a Friday evening early and they were already out of their pork tamales. The tacos were okay. The Elote that came with the tacos was horrible. It was not on a cob, not grilled, it was completely lacking of any taste and seemed to be out of a can. That and being out of their best tamale were the biggest disappointments.

We came here on July 4 and the manager shared that they were understaffed. Everything took a bit longer but our server, Antonio, in tandem with other staff members got us taken care of. It gave us more time to chat. Food was delicious.

We’ve been here several times but on this visit my husband and I both ordered the Chicken Burrito Mexicano. We assumed it was the grilled chicken like we always got. It came out shredded so I was disappointed the server didn’t ask which chicken we would like. The fries were soggy as well. Also everyone in our part got their meal long before my mother whose Salmon salad came out almost 7 minutes later. We’ll be back but this trip was disappointing.

We got the booth I requested to reduce the noise! It’s hard to hear due to bar noise and all hard surfaces with high open ceilings. Food was great and our server was very attentive to our every need! Definitely will go again. There was a squeaking pipe noise that was very distracting. Hope their landlord gets that fixed quickly 😊

Quaint place with excellent indoor and outdoor seating. The fish ceviche was exceptional and the salsa tasted fresh. They didn’t have a good IPA selection for me, but my girlfriend said the strawberry house margarita was tasty.
The entrees were very good.
We will definitely be going back.

Carne Asada and enchiladas suizas were really good. The chips were warm and the salsa was good. We tried a Paloma, the Texas margarita and a special ginger orange margarita and all were delish. Waiter was very friendly & helpful.

Drove by Verde and it caught my eye. I googled it, read reviews, looked at the amazing menu and decided then and there to reserve a table. We are so pleased that we did!

Excellent food and service was good. I was told that because I made a reservation on OpenTable that I needed to wait . Unsure why a restaurant would use an online reservation service if they did not actually honor the reservation time. Anyway we were seated rather quickly after being told we’d gave a half hour wait. Our waiter was funny and nice but also very weird. We were told at the start that it was very busy (Friday night) and he had all these tables. Not sure why paying customers need to know ahead of time that he has work or that he may mess up. Anyway he was very persistent with asking us to order drinks and when we said no more chips still brought us some Togo. He then gave us he bill and said it would actually be more because he forgot to add the guacamole we had. I guess the multiple tables was an excuse for forgetting to add our guacamole to our bill. I had never experienced a waiter making a mistake on the bill then telling us it’s actually more and not giving proof. It was different. Usually they would just forget it because they forgot. Anyway food was delicious and overall atmosphere was great.

Our waiter, Manny, was great. The food is delicious, high quality and perfectly prepared!! However, the noise level is ridiculous. It was so loud in there, that we were shouting to hear each other at our small table. We won’t go back unless we can sit on the patio.

MAJOR ISSUE!! Menu features tacos.. with 3 on top line at $12. Server said you can order any 3 but did not say they were $5 each.
On the OT menu they are listed at $3.50 each! So was ripped off for $1.50 each! Did not recheck till we got home.

On time, the restaurant was 1/2 full. Stuck us at a table for 2 between 2 people at 4 top and family (loud) of 5 at an 8 top. The acoustics are very bad. Typical for the open ceilings to flat roof. Everything echos plus the local noise made it hard to talk.

Had to ask 4 times for sugar.

Cheese dip was cold with it being 1/3 in lumps.

On a slow night I expected better.

FYI Clear tension between some server who are not happy with the new “chef”... this was mentioned behind out table.

Not sure why they charged us too much if the OT menu price was wrong or not ( I did not relook at the restaurant) .DoorDash has them at $4.25... It’s up to them to make sure pricing is correct regardless!

Verde stands out among Mexican restaurants in Carmel for the variety of dishes on their menu. Octopus as a main dish and in tacos really stand out. My favorite is their chicken enchiladas in house made dark mole’ sauce. My husband likes their steak fajitas because of the quality and quantity of the steak. Verde’s special margarita is excellent. It’s made with their own tequila, fresh juices and half of the glass is rimmed with a chili/salt mixture that’s amazing,

This place is amazing I am Mexican and from California and I can say the food here is one of The best Mexican food I have had since moving to Indiana . The only thing I did not like was we made reservations and once we get to the restaurant we told that the website stops working at a certain hour . So I think it should have a way to let you know that but it was well worth the wait !! Definitely will be going back !

Made a reservation through open table - when we arrived the hostess told me she didn’t have a table for us. I explained I made a reservation and her reply was “they were full of reservations....” this just doesn’t make sense. A reservation implies a table is held. The noise level in the restaurant was very loud.
