I had the sea bass whole fish speak which was a fantastic dish. My friends had the brisket tacos which they very much enjoyed. I'd go back as soon as possible.

Verde is a tried and true favorite!! I’ve come here for my birthday for two years and it is such a lively, happy place. The servers and atmosphere are always warm and vibrant. The food is always out of this world. Our meal and experience was outstanding and I will be back for plenty more birthdays.

Ryan, the manager, welcomed us, clearly proud of Verde, which set a delicious tone for a delicious meal. I had the pork chop that might be one of the tastiest dishes I’ve ever had. My husband’s enthusiasm for his tacos matched mine. We tried two of the three guacamole’s and they were also great. The chef doesn’t season food by drowning it in heavy sauces, rather he/she uses fresh produce from watermelon to peppers to peaches to balance flavors. From creative cooking and high quality ingredients came yummy, clean food, all of which was served with care. I’m glad I went and I want to go back!

The Shrimp Tacos were excellent; Guacamole not so much... Very surprise for an "Authentic" Mexican restaurant as I have been to many. This really paled in comparison to others.

Also must say the Margarita was a tad week - I don't even think a full shot was in.

I have to say the service was the best thing about Verde.

Staff was extremely accommodating for our last minute reservation for 11 people. They arranged a table outside al fresco style and really made sure we were taken care of.

Ambiance was fun and upbeat. Unfortunately the greenhouse was full and I did not specify on my reservation so I was seated inside. Slight bummer. Guac was amazing. Margarita was delicious. Fish tacos were a bit over fried and hard. I wish there was an option to have a grilled fish taco. Service was wonderful including the hostess. Taco night is such a great deal! I will be back to try some other tacos and sit in the greenhouse for sure!

I love everything,i love the food,even the owner is really super nice!
But there is one guy i think he is the manager ,he is about 5"10 ,white male in his late 30's .he is bold with a beard. EVERYTIME I GO THEIR HE HAS A TERRIBLE ATTITUDE. He is never nice or friendly , and i think he is ruining the whole restaurants good vibe. He should not be working their.

We love that we have this gem of a restaurant in our neighborhood. We sat in the greenhouse and everything was perfect. Our server, Phoebe was excellent, very attentive and friendly. The greenhouse has a great ambiance. It's like eating outside but without the humidity and bugs. The food was incredible. They have a great selection of tacos that you can mix and match and the regular entrees were great too.
The owner checked on us to make sure we were happy with everything. Couldn't ask for more, if you haven't been there, give them a try. You won't be disappointed!

Cold in the back room. Hot in the main room. Need to fix that. Not much options on the menu. But food was still very good. Service was great. Price is a bit high.

One of my favorite places to enjoy an affordable and delicious meal. I Love the atrium room. The food is always Freshly made and full of flavor. Try the guacamole- it’s always amazing! And the service (thanks Sam!) is impeccable.
