Haven’t been here in few years and was pleasantly surprised the other night while visiting Verde with my husband. Everything was amazing! Ambiance, music, food and service were excellent. The greenhouse is beautiful and the bar is very spacious. Drinks were great and they even have all the great tequilas we love. We’ll definitely be visiting more often.

The food was absolutely amazing , service was great as well. I ordered a spicy watermelon margarita and asked the server how spicy it was because I didn’t want my mouth on fire and he said it’s infused tequila so he put put one shot of the spicy and one shot regular to make it perfect!

First time eating at Verde and everything was delicious. We had the queso, chicken and steak tacos, skirt steak, and the potato salad. The greenhouse was warm and there was music overhead but it wasn’t very loud.

I’ll start with the hostess, Taylor. She was absolutely the best! I mentioned to her that I had never been to the restaurant before and she decided to take the liberty and seat us in the greenhouse which completely made my night. It is beautiful in the greenhouse and I really loved it. Our waitress was Eliza and she was a gem! I ordered the spicy watermelon margarita and it did not disappoint! The squash rings are a must try, they were delicious. The surf and turf tacos were out of this world and so was the donut desert with fresh whipped cream! My friend and I cannot even wait to go back!!! My first time at Verde was nothing short of amazing. It’s worth mentioning that the plantains were very dry and I wouldn’t order them again

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.

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.
