    Meh. Full disclosure, we were there on “Girls Night Out” in Somerville. Unplanned. The bar was busy but the restaurant was not. Our waiter did not know the menu which was not great as he told me a dish I was ordering was not spicy, and it was very spicy. Inedible for me. When asked “why didn’t you tell me so I could have switch it out?” I didn’t have the heart to tell him it was because he never came to check on us. In fairness, he took it off the bill which I appreciated. And yes we tipped on the full amount. Steak was grisly and not seasoned. Steak fries were bland. Hopefully this was just an off night. Many other choices in that hood.

    The atmosphere, menu and service reminded us of bistros in Paris. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and attentive! Highly recommended!

    Small portions. Great tasting food but I would not recommend the gnocchi.
    Verve RestaurantResponded on May 9, 2019
    Small portions represent the bar menu items as you have commented. They are called " small plates or share plates". You can choose to be served at the bar either the bar menu or the dinner menu . We look forward to your return to Verve.

    Impressive place. Staff are excellent and knowledgeable - thanks for the great recommendation on the wine! Kitchen handles food allergies and special requests seamlessly - every dish was a winner! Our special favorite - the hand-cut frites. Literally, the best ones I have ever eaten.
