So sad we did not find this place until now! An amazing hidden gem with friendly and helpful staff, fabulous food, and great music (both live and not live). We hardly noticed we were there two hours as we sat through two awesome jazz sets and ambled through Hokkaido Milk Buns (a must), Salmon Belly (tasty citrus and spicy sauce with ultra-fresh salmon tartare), tiger prawns (served tostada style in a perfect blend of tastes), mushroom linguine, and duck pappardelle bolognese. Wow! Every morsel tantalizing and special. We capped it with the beignets. It was an awesome date night/birthday celebration. Definitely in our “must” list going forward!

The food was great and came out hot. The drinks were OK, the old fashion which should be a staple for a place like this wasn't very good at all. The live music idea is great but Jazz so often isn't going to attract a younger crowd. Overall was nice and would return on a day with no jazz.

I searched for hours to find the perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary. Looked like Verse would tick all the boxes for us, and it did! My wife loved the ambiance, the food, and the live music. We ordered several things and they were all amazing. I'd recommend Oysters and Sashimi. Coffee and Turnips was also a delightfully new experience.

Had no idea this gem of a restaurant was hidden in plain sight! A friend recommended it to us for my husbands birthday because I wanted music, ambience and good food...maybe even some dancing? I was not disappointed. We walked in to the sound of live acoustic guitar, soft lighting, and a groovy vibe. Thirtysomethings+ will be very comfortable. Menu was eclectic and interesting - lots of fun apps for sharing - tiger prawns were delicious - sad the Milk buns had sold out, will go back for those. The tomahawk for 2 was the way to go - my husband and son could not finish it - best birthday dinner we have had in a while AND we didn't have to drive in to Beverly Hills.

Had an amazing experience at Verse last night. Lucky enough to see Brazilian guitarist extraordinaire Kleber Jorge and his band (who are also members of Sergio Mendes' band) perform! Food was great (Bream and Mary's Chicken for entrees, Salmon appetitizer and those mouth watering Milk Buns!). Also a perfect Manhattan(s) by the barkeep! Service by Clare/Clair and the staff was impeccable. Can't believe we didn't know about this place before (it opened briefly in 2019 right before the pandemic hit). Doesn't look like they missed a beat (no pun intended). Kudos. We'll be back with friends!

Austin was our server and he really took care of us. The service runners that bring the food were on their game also every time they came they were checking if we needed anything else. The ambiance was great the drinks were great the music was great the whole place put you in a chilled and relaxing mood. Sorry to the chief the food flavors were just good but the sushi rice was hard and the fish was tuff and stringy. It was our first time and when your advertising 4 $$$$ you expect the food to be outstanding . We were two people our bill with tip. 350.00

This place is overrated and overpriced. We were told we only had a hour and a half to eat because they needed the table for someone else, to me that’s very rude. The food needed more salt and flavor, portions are rather small for the price. We were told we would have entertainment but it started 10 mins before we HAD to leave. Good service and ambiance but we won’t be going back
