Verandah at Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort Ratings and Reviews
In my opinion, Verandah is the best restaurant at the Omni Amelia Island Resort! Service was fanstatic (Allison was our server), food was delicious (breads, shrimp cocktail, bbq shrimp, mushroom soup, seafood carbonara, crab encrusted grouper plate, key lime pie - all wonderful!), prices were appropriate for the food and service provided, and ambiance was upscale yet not pretentious. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Amelia Island.
The food was amazing! From the amuse bouche to the to honey buttered pop corn it was quite an experience. Our server, Allison, was very attentive and helpful with her dinning suggestions. We had oyster bisque and the crab coated grouper. We've never tasted better!!
Great food , not much atmosphere was recommended by trip advisor went for Thanksgiving dinner not realizing pre fix dinner. Had to walk 100 yards through the rain because
Entrance was blocked by post s which was told residents require for limited access. It worked - was soaked however excellent food made up for it , service was good, surroundings boring and dated as is typical of a resort restaurant - still, food was excellent .
They did not have our reservation when we arrived and could not find it even after we showed it on our phone - which they did not what to look at. They said we must have made it at another restaurant as that happens all the time. While at dinner we received a message that the reservation had been cancelled by the restaurant and when trying to show the hostess this when leaving she didn't want to look at it and said she did not know what was going on. Guess it's an easy way for them to not give points for dining. They don't have to worry about us ever going back.
Food was fantastic- Service even better - the GM was there- working tables and making sure guests were satisfied.
They gave us a free shrimp cocktail because we causally mentioned we had a bad lunch at another resort restrauant (long wait- terrible hot dog)
Don’t miss this place if you are on the island!
Food was exceptional & server was great. Just one strange thing.....We arrived 15-20 mins early for our reservation and the hostess who greeted us told us that our reservation was seating closer to our reservation time & asked that we go to the bar to wait. No biggie.....She also told us to close our tab there so we'd be ready to go to our table when ready....a strange request...,,We walked to the bar, ordered 2 drinks....and literally as soon as we ordered she called us to our table. It was 1 minute at most. Felt like they were trying to get us to order at the bar before getting to our table...dinner was fabulous but the whole hostess bar thing felt wrong
We were 10 minutes early and the hostess was cold. She told us to take a seat, our table wasn't ready. We went into the bar, before the drinks were made she shouted our name. She had to have watched us sit at the bar....there wasn't any reason to shout for us. The bar is about 15 feet from the hostess stand. They made me pay for the drinks, wouldn't add them to the dinner bill. When they seated us, the dinning room was almost empty......so how could our table have not have been ready? I had the fillet and grilled shrimp which was very good. Janet had crab cakes...they were dry. The waitress was very good.
So basically it is an ok restaurant with a bad hostess.
Couldn’t have asked for a better dinning experience. My picky son didn’t like one of the dishes he ordered and with zero hesitation, they brought him out something else. The entire staff went above and beyond our expectations, making this a very memorable dinner. Will absolutely be back next vacation.
Reservations for 7:15pm , arrived on time greeted warmly advising there would be a 10-15 minute wait - no problem.
Wait staff was spread thin, we were advised that they had quite a few customers without reservations so busier than expected.
We had trouble with the crab cakes being over seared, but the waitress addressed the issue right away and corrected the situation.
Our waitress was very hospitable and made our dinner more enjoyable.
We did not care for the seasoning on the chicken, but that was personal preference as the chicken was well prepared.
We ate here for our wedding anniversary. Food was beyond excellent as well as well service. I had the grouper and my wife had the crab cakes. She said they were the best crab cakes she had ever had. We will definitely be coming back the next time we stay at the Omni.
The food was excellent! We aren't big eaters and like to share. We started out with the verandah sampler ....2 crab cakes, 4 BBQ shrimp and 2 fried green tomatoes. It was perfect! The Caesar salad was delicious. We shared the Grouper and it was excellent. It was served with mashed potatoes and was delicious. We were celebrating our 37th Anniversary and they surprised us with a yummy dessert sampler trio.... key lime pie with honey meringue, cheesecake and mud pie with toasted almonds and chocolate ganache.....they were all delicious. The food was wonderful. The service was excellent and we had a very special 37th Anniversary celebration. Thank you Verandah. We will return!
I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. It was truly amazing. My girlfriend and I are huge foodies, and we are constantly dining out. My girlfriend has a ton of very difficult food restrictions that make it really tough for her to get food food in most restaurants. Her food at this place was mind blowing though. Our waitress, Tina, was an angel. She went above and beyond to communicate with the chef, who went out of his way to alter menu options to fit her dietary restrictions while avoiding her having to have a bland meal. Tina was super patient and even brought out a special dessert that my girlfriend could eat when she noticed that we didn't order anything for her since none of the options on the menu fit her dietary restrictions. Every staff member that we dealt with was in such a good mood and was so helpful. And the food truly was delicious. Would recommend this place without hesitation.
