Owned by Chef Charles Tutino and his wife, Jane Witkin, Verjus serves contemporary French/New American cuisine in a stylish, understated dining room decorated with works by local artists. The menu changes daily and seasonally, taking advantage of local markets and direct sourcing whenever possible. Verjus has a full bar and a list of excellent wines, primarily French and American, at surprisingly low prices. Verjus also features an extensive line of single malt scotches.

Overrated and overpriced. Lit up like a 7-11. The casserole was ridiculously bad but the branzino and escargot were delicious.

Verjus continues to serve food at a higher level. We went on an" Italian Bistro" night. On these nights your choices are limited to 3or 4 appetizers , dinners, and desserts. It does not seem to matter. You can pick any and not be disappointed. My dinner of Berkshire pork tenderloin literally melted in my mouth. My wife had a steak which was equally as good. We will be back.

Once again we had an amazingly exquisite and delicious dinner. The branzino was to-die-for! Great cocktails, yummy desserts, great value! Such a gem tucked away in Maplewood! I always look forward to eating at Verjus!

Food and service were both excellent. Very friendly staff and a nice relaxing calm atmosphere for a small get together.

Jane was a wonderful host and we felt like we were dining in her living room. The food was outstanding. I cannot believe we just found Verjus!

Verjus never disappoints. Love their French dishes, but last Friday was German night and once again everything was delicious -- from the onion potato rolls through to the apple strudel -- and everything in between (sauerbraten, schnitzel).

Understaffed. Had to pour my own wine. Plates not cleared quickly. Fine dining and casual service. The staff should be trained on the wine and how to treat customers as if they are fine dining. Fine dining prices without a fine dining experience

We enjoyed the delicious pork chops with chestnut puree. My bass was ok but a little bland. Service was a little slow, considering there was only one other table besides ours.
