Verde - Flavors of Mexico - Carmel
Delicious, fresh food, good cocktails, and attentive service.
Awesome chips and queso and guacamole. Great free valet service offered as well. Delicious frozen strawberry margaritas!
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.
Great vibe & the food was very fresh!
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.
We always enjoy Verde and it has become one of our favorite hangouts! The service, food and atmosphere is upbeat and dynamic. We'll definitely be back in the near future!
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!
The Shrimp Ceviche was absolutely delicious!!! The service was wonderful!
Went to Verde for a date night with my wife. Service and food was a little slow given that the restaurant was not busy. Food was good, portion size was sufficient.
Great dining option!
Everything could not have been better, it was GREAT,
Everything was really good, the food, service.
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 !
Excellent food, outstanding service, but sometimes painfully noisy like many restaurants today.
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.
Our server was very attentive even though it was a busy night. Our food was fantastic and the queso is a must! We left with practically a to go box of our meal.
Great food and service
Our server, Faith, was absolutely amazing. The food was good too.
Food was excellent. Staff was hustling. Some of the staff was overly flamboyant. Clientele gave off a pretentious atmosphere. I would probably return, but for lunch instead of a weekend dinner.
Best Mexican Restaurant in Carmel. The food and service was excellent. Must try The Paella.
Customer service was excellent! Food and drinks were fantastic!
Wasn’t sure what to expect, based on spotty reviews, but we enjoyed our visit. The food was good, service timely and good, and lots of menu choices. We visited on a Saturday evening when it was busy.
Good food. Too loud to enjoy a date night. Not going back. Packed in like sardines.
Service was great. The food was very average for the price.
