Everything was really good except the New York steak. There was way too much fat, gristle and membrane. The other two meats were good.

Really wonder food and service. Too bad the dining area does not use the neighboring space (tables available but looks to be saved for large parties) giving you an unobstructed view of the gardens.

Cute spot with lots of custom pasta options! I went for lunch on a Monday afternoon and the service was great. There’s a good vibe in the restaurant and you get the feeling that all of the waitstaff are a family and care about their customers. I got the puttanesca with bucatini which they were able to make a non-vegan version of with anchovies. It was salty, spicy, and delicious! 😋

Absolutely fantastic meal. The enchiladas were the best I’ve ever had. Really flavorful. And the churros were light and flaky with perfectly creamy vanilla ice cream.

The calamari portions were extremely small and we did say something to management and they charged us for another platter. If we knew that we wouldn’t have ordered another one but manager said they weighed it but 2nd one was bigger than first order. Bread and drinks were excellent but trout fish was burned rest of dishes were very good.

This was our second visit to the Veranda. The prime rib sandwich was so good the first time, we had it again and were not disappointed. The sweet potato fries were crisp and delicious. For dessert, we had the cheesecake for superb finish to a delightful lunch. We will definitely visit again and plan to bring family and friends.

Valentina's food, wine, service, and ambiance exceeded my expectations! The wine was perfect. The server was knowledgeable when I asked about both wine and food. The only tiny gripe was how loud the train is as it passes. I hesitate to even mention it.
