Extensive menu with choices for everyone. The specials took the guy five minutes to tell us, there were so many. The service was fairly attentive, until the place got a bit more crowded. But we were not in a hurry. I would highly recommend for a neighborhood restaurant with good food.

I typically enjoy the brunch and unlimited cocktail options that they have. However, on my last visit the service was a little lacking. It took some time for us to get refills on our mimosas and we had to flag down our server several times.

Solid place with tasty food and good service. I got the branzino special and my date got the steak. Both very good. Good wine too. Not sure why it wasn't more crowded.

The food was ok, service was a little slow for a place that wasn't busy. Drinks were watered down, tasted like watered down juice. When we said something politely, they served us a half empty glass. Will not return to this place, not worth it at all.

I took a friend to Verde on a rainy Friday for lunch, so it was somewhat quiet, but the waiter was very attentive, and the food was wonderful, and we liked the restaurant very much.

Would like the restaurant better if it were less noisy and the staff did not forget dining requests such as getting additional drinks, etc. Also, even though the restaurant was not crowded, you got the feeling that you were being rushed to eat and leave.

The yolks in my eggs Benedict were over cooked and the champagne in my mimosa was cheap and gave me a headache. I'll give it another try in the hopes they can correct these issues.

Great service, excellent seafood. We had the stuffed shrimp appetizer and brazzini which could be whole or filet with sauteed spinach. Good atmosphere for conversation and real dining.....
Has a good wine selection. Would definitely go back as there were other Italian specialities that looked enticing.

The Seafood Bowl was good, the linguine with scallops & shrimp dissapointing.
The Tiramisu was dry & I won't recommend it.
Decent wine list & very good service.
