Come 2-3/mo and usually have the same dish. This time was probably a different chef because tasted quite different. Not as flavorful. (Hope it was an anomaly.)

The food is good and the patio is inviting. Unfortunately there is major construction going on right now so sitting outside made it difficult to have a conversation. In the future - when construction is complete- the patio should be very enjoyable.

The food was good. The service was good at first, but when our server served our food she never came back! We waited about 20 minutes until we finally decided to call the attention of another server to hand us our check.

Bar Verde is amazingly good! One of the best places to eat in Century City. It should receive more recognition than it does. Food is both creative and delicious. Service is first rate. Can't think of enough good things to say about the place.

Always nice dining al fresco, especially during a lunch break from work. While the staff is nice, the service was lacking and not busy for a Friday afternoon so hard to understand why so inattentive?

The food was delicious. The outside seating area has nice shade. Relatively quiet - could not hear the other diners, but the music was a tad loud (and there is still construction going on at the mall - we could hear the faint sounds of construction in the distance). I would like to go again soon.

We really like this place, but it's a shame the service and food delivery is so inferior. When we dine out, we hate when restaurants "auction off" food, such as "who had the...." All tables have positions and waiters/food runners need to efficiently deliver the plates to each person. We informed the manager the last time we were there with guests that if they interrupted our lunch again with the "who had the" comments that we wouldn't come back; he told us if they did it again, lunch was on him. When arriving for lunch, we told the manager Enrique about our past experiences, and minutes later the food came and was auctioned off. We asked for the manager and Enrique not only refused to pick up the lunch as promised, he then added while at our table, "are you still WORKING on that." We're having a nice lunch, he's working. This from the manager. No wonder the service is so novice and unprofessional. It's a shame that they don't have it together (it comes from the top down) because we'd rather go to many of the other restaurants in the mall where we can enjoy a nice meal without the unprofessional behavior. We told Enrique on the way out that we would not be coming back and he could have cared less. There's a reason Bar Verde is half empty when the other restaurants are impossible to get into. Can anyone say, "who had the restaurant before it closed?"

Absolutely delicious and great if you're shopping at CC and need to eat. Way better than waiting in line for mediocre food in the food court . . . worth every penny and they also have a great burger if you want to keep it simple.

The food and atmosphere here is excellent; the runners need to be trained not to "auction off the food". If they ask us once more, "who gets this?" I think I will scream. There is no excuse for the laziness of the runners. It needs to change

Option of seating in or out and is always nice,...except,....there is a major construction going across the street, which can get noisy some times, but besides that, it's a relaxing place to have lunch or meet for business lunch.

Pleasantly surprised how nice it was to sit outside on the terrace of the restaurant, especially when there is a view of construction. The DineLA menu offered an excellent selection of courses and a small cocktail pairing. The cocktail pairing was a little underwhelming; only one out of three drinks was good. But, the service and food made up for that small disappointment. Our waitress was friendly and helpful.

Tucked into the back of Nordstrom on the third floor, this is a great find. My friend and I sat on the patio (the indoor dining looked very pleasant as well, but it was a beautiful day), and except for the omnipresent sound of jackhammers due to neighborhood construction, we enjoyed the sunshine and delicious food with super friendly service. We both had the King Salmon A La Nage, and it was cooked to perfection, set on top of cooked leeks, carrots and baby potatoes in a light creamy broth. Yum. Will definitely return.
