Funny that in DineLA the best menu I perused was at a Nordstrom restaurant. Food was great. Service was outstanding. Every person I dealt with at the restaurant was awesome. Will go again.

Great vibe at venue, superb service! The food isn't nearly as good as it looks but vibe + decent cost makes up for it. The appetizers and deserts are amazing. Main dish not so much (a bit too bland for my liking, I enjoy savory/powerful flavors).

Bar Verde at The Grove has a good thing going. Great bar. Solid menu. Great atmosphere. And when you have the right server, it's one of our favorite places to go. Over the years, with changes in management & staff, there have been days that weren't amazing, but overall, you can count on consistency at this location. Zach is an excellent server - efficient, friendly, attentive & knowledgable.

My friend and I each had a salad. They were adequate, without much character and not exactly crisp. We sat on the terrace and that was very nice.

Bar Verde is my favorite restaurant at The Grove. The food is always great, the service is, too. And it's got a great outdoor seating area with a bird's eye view of The Grove. I love it!

We were traveling with a two-year old granddaughter. We knew this place would be perfect. We made a reservation and was seated as soon as we arrived. The atmosphere was very nice and they seated us in the back with other families with children. The food here is very good quality and our two-year old loved the mac and cheese that was on the kid's menu. we adults shared a pizza, salad and each of us their famous tomato basil soup. Our server was wonderful. Very cordial and was on top of all of our orders. We will definitely come back.

it a lovely idea.. view of grove is great..
the food is good... altho a limited menu.
the service was fair.. very nice folks but too few to run the place and once the check came they disappeared. The big problem is the scraping of the chairs... when servers or customers move them , its deafening. They need to solve this problem which is a major turnoff to the dining experience.

Service friendly again. Excellent bartending, bully martini. A bit sad we were told that reserving by Open table means we can't choose where we sit. Also, we told them it was a birthday and they did nothing about it. All else was great.

More ch-ch-ch-changes! Okay. Another new dish: Short Rib Grilled Cheese With Blackberry Jam was a hit with my carnivore friend. My cilantro Lime Shrimp Salad was beautifully composed, and the greens and vinaigrette were delicious, but the shrimp were overcooked. When I pointed it out, though, it was redone without hesitation. The Sea Salt Caramel Cheesecake (that used to be our "crack") has been replaced with a Bourbon Caramel Cheesecake -- almost as good :-) Service is always very good also. We remain fans.

I'm almost afraid to write a review because it is such a lovely spot, I don't want it to get overrun. You're just an elevator ride above the Grove, but you feel transported. The views are lovely and the atmosphere is sophisticated and serene.

It's a very relaxed setting that is just perfect for a comfortable dinner with friends, or a romantic place for two.

Our waiter was fantastic. The food and service were excellent.

I can't think of a single thing that could have been better.

Experience was fine but I get an email from open table saying that Bar Verde said I was a no show. Frustrating that I have to prove that I was there. To make it easier I just won’t use Open Table or go to Bar Verde. Waste of time.

Oh change can be so stressful, and they keep doing that to us with their menu after the addiction sets in. We do get over it, though. My lunch partner and I were delighted with the new dishes we tried this time: My carnivore friend raved about his Braised Beef Bourgignon; and I loved the Shrimp Chitarra! Then we both died over the must-have Caramel & Sea Salt Cheesecake that was, thankfully, still on the menu!!

The staff was on their game, but they couldn't help it that families with really loud and unhappy children were everywhere. That was the only disappointing part of our experience. The hostess was great our server was great and the food was very good. I definitely recommend the beef bourguignon, I literally kept making Mmmm noises while eating it. The burger was ok but the aioli was a great accompaniment. The chocolate cake was good, but the bread pudding was really good.

Our service was terrible and the food was ok. We waited about close to an hour after ordering to receive our food and our waiter could care less. He was inattentive and unapologetic. His excuse was "It takes long to make the burgers." Really? When you order before several new guests get seated and receive your food after they do. Hmm. Will not be returning.

For what was not a crowded night, with plenty of empty tables ... the service was painfully slow. Just getting silverware took 15 minutes, forget drink refills, or catching the waiter for something additional like a dessert menu. The best part of the night was bonding with the other guest at tables around us regarding the shared experience of being ignored by the restaurant staff.
Which truly is a shame because the night was beautiful and everyone was in a festive mood until the realization of being abandoned by the servers turned the night into group frustration.

Bar Verde at the Grove is a fun place to eat. They have a decent size menu and the service was excellent (from front desk to waiters to busboys). Nice indoor or outdoor seating and great location at the top of Nordstroms at the Grove.
