We have eaten at Verde many times since the restaurant has opened. This was our first bad meal. A huge disappointment. The food—pizzas, pastas, and salads—was all bland and simply bad. There was nothing I would eat again. I hope this is not the new normal. I had to apologize to our guests and was deeply disappointed. I hope this was just one bad meal.
I had visited Verde before - but not for brunch. The menu for brunch was varied and the portions were good. The server offered a bread basket since it was brunch, and we said yes. Later, we found that our eight half-slices of bread (four full slices of bread) with jam and cream cheese was billed at $8. That was a little deceiving. Also, they are not getting an "outstanding" rating because my reservation was for 11am - which is their opening time. They weren't ready at 11am and we were seated at 11:15am.
The food was delicious and the server was helpful and knowledgeable .
The location is very special .
Good as always even with a new menu.
Lovely setting and delicious food with appealing presentation.
What a lovely place to have brunch! We had reservations for Sunday at 11:00am the morning of the Miami Marathon (which we hadn't known about until 2 days earlier). The restaurant called to confirm our reservation and to tell us that the streets would be blocked. I so appreciated that advance notice. It was a little dicey getting to the museum and restaurant, but we made it, and were the only ones there at first. We chose to sit outside, and had a marvelous view of the water, the cruise ships and the park. It was a bit windy so we had to hang on to menus and napkins, but still very nice. Food was excellent and MORE than generous portions. My frittata was huge and I took half of it home. There is a nice selection of different brunch items, all moderately priced. We truly had an enjoyable meal.
Absolutely fantastic! Great view, friendly staff. Great place for brunch.
I have been there many times, but the place is getting worst each visit.
This day we had a very slow waiter. The whole lunch took us 2:30 hours. The potatoes with caramelized onions, didn't come with onions, even after asking for the onions they put regular salty onions, not the caramelized one. The chicken on the brick was raw and missing spice. I remember this chicken were one of the best some time ago. I hope they take care of this kitchen because its a beutiful place to go.
Unexpected good museum restaurant
Very good quality food
Very good cooked
Great view of the channel
We had a most charming server. The food was excellent. We have been to Verde several times and are always delighted with the food, ambiance, atmosphere etc. We shall return in the future.
I have been in this restaurant several times but this time it was not as good as before! The brocolli soup was good but cold. The taco trio was ok! Menu options could be changed from time to time. Outdoor seating, despite the heaters, was not confortable because of the wind!
I’ve eaten at Verde about six times. Each previous occasion was excellent. Today, the food seemed very uninspired, poorly flavored and the presentation was hardy special. Definitely won’t be eating at Verde again.
we had a great lunch. salad and a Margherita pizza. portions were good. I added grilled chicken to my salad and it was delicious.
one of my favorite things about going to either of the museums is lunch. do book ahead because sometimes there are no empty tables.
Perfect date night! Beautiful views and delicious food!
I've been at Verde several times, with good overall impression except for the last time I went. This last time OpenTable allowed us to make a reservation for 4.45PM, and we did it. At 4.42PM, the Manager was calling us to say that we should be exactly at 4.45PM because the restaurant closes at 5PM. I don't think they should accept reservations at 4.45PM if they are going to put pressure on the clients like that... We ordered mussels, a chicken sandwich and fries with caramelized onions. Both the sandwich and the fries were stale, onions were inexistent. The mussels were very good.
We made reservations for my husbands birthday, we arrived on time and still had to wait 45 min for our table. The hostess stated she would text when the table was ready and she never did. Our waitress wasn’t very friendly, she seemed to be managing too many tables. The food was good but not out of this world. I got the margarita pizza, it had three leaves of basil. My dad got the steak and eggs which was also underwhelming. My mom got the shrimp and grits which she loved. My brother had the brunch burger which was great. My husband had the mushroom pizza, that was pretty good too. The cocktails are on the stronger side and they have a nice beer and wine selection. The prices are reasonable and the view is completely worth it! The museum and grounds are very beautiful.
We loved our lunch at Verde. There were no outside tables available but the inside was still very nice. Service was excellent. The rainbow carrots were a show stopper. People stopped and took pictures because it was such a beautiful presentation. It tasted as good as it looked. Our daughter is vegan and she had so many choices. Only negative was the parking lot was fun and we had to park so far away. Worth the walk!!
We had not been to Verde for several months and were pleased to find that the service and food quality remain very high. We enjoyed all of our meals. The appetizer shrimp tacos are a very generous portion size. The tuna tartare is excellent. Pizza was very good as was the chicken club. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was served in an attractive manner. We were on the early side for lunch, and decided to eat inside given the humidity out. As we left we noticed the noise level had increased a fair amount as the room filled up. Just something to keep in mind. Overall, highly recommend.
