    The nachos … beautiful. They were the best vegan nachos I have ever had. However the other two items we got we’re not great. The quinoa chorizo taco was really bland. I’m also surprised everyone raves in the reviews about the spicy cauliflower enchiladas. They indeed were not spicy at all and the sauces lacked flavor. I recommend getting the nachos and drinks and skipping full meals.

    The vegan Mexican food is excellent. Service was very nice. My only complaint is that they made a 10:15 reservation available (post theater) and then when we arrived told us they were closing the kitchen and bar early. We were really rushed. I understand the economics of closing early when there is little business, but they should not take late reservations if they do not intend to give appropriate service. I do not blame the staff, but management needs to be better prepared to honor its reservations. Still, the food is terrific, especially the heart of palm ceviche

    We chose this place for a friend with many food restrictions but ALL of us in our party loved the food. All the dishes we tried were delicious, fresh, creative. The service was very attentive but we did not feel rushed in any way. I will go again, even if I am not dining with a gluten free vegan!

    Appetizers and main course came at the same time, when we asked, they told our main course; but they brought the same (cold) meal back after our appetizers. Disappointing. Appetizer was good; could not say the same for the main course.

    The food was delicious but expensive and it was hard to enjoy it with such a noisy atmosphere. Servers were bustling back and forth and talking over our heads with orders and instructions. Though it was a plant-based restaurant, it was obvious people were more there for alcoholic drinks. As we left the restaurant, we noticed 2nd ave was quieter than our dining experience. Not sure we would try it again.

    Last night was our first time at Bar Verde. Soon after my friend arrived, our waiter leaned over and asked her if she made the reservation. I made our reservation and said so, but it was if he hadn't heard me. My friend pointed at me and said she did, but he still addressed my friend and continued to behave as if she was the only one at our table throughout our dinner. My friend is white, and I am Black. Other than this questionable service, the food was OK (though the California burrito was actually a black bean burrito - no seitan carne asada or fries were in it) and the outdoor seating was a plus since we're still in the ongoing COVID (airborne) pandemic.

    Probably the best vegan Mexican food I have ever had. Great sangria, too. We sat outside, so can't really comment on the noise level or the ambiance. The reason I only gave 4 stars (instead of 5) for service is that my friend asked for something to be left off a dish, and the dish came with it. It was clear that the wait person's english was not very good; we don't think he understood what my friend was asking.

    Over 35m to place an order. Food came before our drinks. Server poured water on my plate. If it wasn't for these issues though, I think it could have been a great dining experience.

    Amazing food. Horrible service. Sat for 30 mins after eating our meal (plates cleared) without anyone checking on us, offering dessert, or getting the check. I tried to eat the manager’s attention and she told me to hold and walked right past me. It wasn’t busy so I don’t know what the deal was but makes me sad that this delicious plant based restaurant was ruined by the staff.

    Bar Verde is one of my favorites and my non-vegan friends love it. But last night, we had to flag down a server to order drinks, food, and get our bill. We were there early and the restaurant wasn't even half full, so the lack of attention was really frustrating.
