First time trying, food was great. Our tall blonde server was terrific, we sat up front by the glass facing street. Drinks were great and so was the ambience. We had no leftovers because we ate Everything!! We’ll be back ..

Had to wait a half hour to be seated after our reservation time. Food took 40 minutes to come to the table. People that got seated after us received their food before us. The table was so small that we had to move glasses off of it so there was room for the food. The noise level and lighting was terrible. Couldn’t talk without screaming across the table. Had to use flashlight in phone to see our food. Steak was undercooked and pork was over cooked. Left very disappointed. Wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.

Starting off with the positive, the Traditional Guacamole was outstanding. Freshly made with none of the ingredients overpowering the taste, probably one of the best I had. The pumpkin and apple cocktails were also delicious and would recommend either one if you're going to have a cocktail with dinner. The waitress was friendly and professional.
On the negative side, it was a little cold in the "Greenhouse" dining area and we should have requested to sit inside the bar area. I wouldn't recommend the Tacos Baracoa, although the brisket was tasty, it had a lot of fat which I had to cut off. I also would not recommend the Mexican street corn which was rolled in too much salty cheese which made you thirsty. Food was good, not great.

We loved the greenhouse! It is beautiful and the ambiance was great. The staff was friendly from the moment we walked in and the service was impeccable.
I would recommend it.

Our server was very nice but they seemed short staffed since we’d be done with drinks for a while before seeing her. We put in an appetizer order that she didn’t put through to the kitchen so we didn’t get it, but our entrees were plenty big. Tables for 2 were very small for the size of the plates. They ran out of a special at 6pm which seemed the start of dinner time.

I hadn’t been to Verde in about 5 years. We moved off of Long Island in 2017 and recently moved back. I loved this place the first time I went and always remembered it. It absolutely did not disappoint and was just as good if not better than how I remembered it. We started with chips and Guac, which was super tasty. They make their guac on the salty side which i like. We got the Oaxacan Market for 2 and it would have fed myself, my wife and 2 of our kids (the little ones - age 4 and 6). The chicken and the steak were perfect. The roast pork shoulder was a bit fatty, but most pork shoulder is, but It was cooked as well as it could have been. As for drinks, my wife got the mezcal margarita and she loved it. The bartender was super knowledgeable about what seemed like every tequila ever made and taught us a lot about the different brands and what makes certain flavors, smokiness, sweetness and dry varieties. It’s hard to keep a super chill vibe in a restaurant while being quick and on top of service and speed of getting food out - but this place does it. We are big fans.

Our server walked passed us repeatedly and spent next to no time checking in on our table, even when we would try to get his attention. When we would finally get his attention he would forget to bring what we asked for over (drinks, napkins, etc). The food was good, though it came out 40 minutes after ordering, and certainly not enough to make up for the lack of service.

It was absolutely freezing! When I asked the server if we could move her option was to open the window. Once I warmed up a bit, she closed the window and once again I was FREEZING and told me to keep the window closed. She completely ignored my table to the point were I had to ask another server to get me another drink since I didn’t like my first one and I was trying to get her attention for 20 minutes. Food was meh, I probably wouldn’t go back again. After all of the rave reviews I heard, I was expecting to be blown out of the water but unfortunately I was not. I wound up going home and the next day making my own barbacoa tacos.
I gave the server the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she was new,
But she checked on all of her other tables multiple times and didn’t even look over at us once. Very very disappointed.

Margaritas were delicious but service was extremely slow. Waited over 15 minutes to be given menu info or drink orders taken. They ran out of the special that 2 of the party wanted. Music was too loud and difficult to hear conversation.

Flies in the green house, everyone swatting all dinner. disappointed that it was decided shrimp tacos weren’t included in the 10 pack though the menu (scanned menu) indicates otherwise. $22 is pricy for 3 mediocre, small, “street” tacos without any sides included. Cauliflower tacos were delicious. Did get rice and beans on side anf they were good but $6 was pricey for each side. Upscale costs, but not for upscale dining in my opinion. Service was excellent!! If something is listed on the menu, it should be honored.

The only issue we had was when we were be seated the hostess told us we had an hour and an half to eat and drink. It irked us. It was my wife’s birthday and we felt a little rushed. Wish they put that note when we made the reservation, we would have gone somewhere else.

I’ve been here many times before but it was my friends first time. We came for brunch and my one friend loves the Hibiscus Mamosa! I personally love their strawberry lemonade it’s so fresh! And the corn pancakes are deliciously sweet.

Had a great time! Food was great, ambiance was great. Only problem was the overly-energetic waiters who kept trying to take away our food! Came to our table FOUR times to take away a huge platter of dinner for four. Finally one of us said something. Small problem but they need to fix it. We go out to dinner with friends to eat and talk and don't like being constantly interrupted by wait staff.

Our food was so good. The service was amazing. My husband and I both had the skirt steak. Perfectly cooked. For an app. We had the fluke ceviche..we’ve never had it with that fish before. It was amazing. The plantains were phenomenal. We also had the side of black beans which were so tasty with a Kick of heat. I must say their spicy margarita is the best around. We can’t wait to go back.
