It’s good to go there if you want a good quick bite. The food was Above 5 stars. You can tell it is fresh and made to order. It was a good choice for my group because it was getting late and there was kids in the group. But you can enjoy a tête à tête dinner away from the noise tucked in the corner or outside.

Seated outdoor overlooking The Americana. My strawberry mint salad was so fresh and healthy. Heavenly white chocolate pudding! Attentive servers.

The food was overall good but I'm not sure about the service. We had to ask for the welcome bread because we saw it being served to the table where the party came after us. And the waitress who was serving us probably knew that but she did not mention it at all so we had to ask other bus boy about that. Also, the waitress who escorted us to the table was not friendly at all.

We had a fabulous experience.
The wait staff were all very friendly, outgoing & professional.
They managed everything from timing to small request & changes very well & with a smile.
The food was delicious!!
All in all we had a wonderful evening.
We have been before when we visit in Dec to see the giant Christmas tree.
Based on this experience, I believe we will now include this in our regular line up of restaurants for dining out.

AS ITS CUSTOMARY OF THIS RESTAURANT, the attention to every detail its given without flaw and it reassures the diner a qualitative experience to be experienced over and over.
The food is so well prepared, (I had the Sake- infused Cod), that one wishes there was more. The cocktails are innovative, and a perfect match to anything from the menu, the wine list is absent from's one mind.
The service so attentive it gives the impression no one else is dining around one's table and the server, in our case the bartender, is always available.
A great visit, can't wait until the next time.

It was my first dinner at Bar Verde. I like the food. It was very delicious. I would love to come at day time and rest at the patio with a cup of coffee but they don’t have latte and poor choice of desserts. Definitely come back for family dinner.

Great bar and excellent service. We did the dinela and it was $29 per person. It came with an appetizer, main course, and dessert. It was very yummy. The only thing I don't like about this place is that its located inside Nordstrom. I wish they had a separate entrance outside of it instead of having to wander through Nordstrom looking for it.

Add a little light at the kitchen-side booths so people can read the menus? The window light is shaded by the partitions between booths.

Ber Verde was delicious for being a restaurant in a department store. The servers were welcoming, tentative, and quick and the food came out in a timely manner. It is on the pricier side for what portions given but the taste definitely makes up for that.

Why change something that's working well? You take a perfectly good club sandwich--an excellent one, as a matter of fact--and suddenly put it on a sweet whole wheat bread which totally takes away from the ingredients of the club... WHY?

For a sandwich that pricey, it should be PERFECT.

Your water tastes funny.

Came here for the DineLA dinner. Upon checking in, hostess and overall staff wasn't very welcoming. We sat at one of the booth seats and waitress didn't come by for quite a few minutes.

Appetizers were good, had the poke soba and chicken tacos, pretty tasty. Entree of grilled NY steak was a little overcooked, but still tasted good. Best part was the tasty potatoes, very delicious. The glazed salmon on the other hand was not edible because of the strong za'tar seasoning. The taste and scent of this seasoning overpowered everything in the dish so everything on it was untouched after the first bite.

Waitress came by to ask how was the food when we haven't even had a chance to touch the appetizers yet. Plus, we had to wave her down to get a refill on water. Used dishes were not cleared the whole time so service was almost non-existent.

The cheesecake was surprisingly delicious. Overall a good deal on the DineLA dinner. Wish the salmon wasn't so overpowered with the seasoning and service should be warmer and more available.
