This was our 4th or 5th visit to Verde and it once again did not disappoint. Fantastic cocktails, excellent service and food so delicious I purposely over-order so I can bring some home. The ambience is perfect as well. We'll be back for sure.

My buddy and I decided to try this place after our wives raved about it. Taco Tuesday is supposed to be half price margaritas and half price tacos which I’m sure we paid full price for everything. The service was exceptional though! We each ordered 8 tacos and they brought them all out on two plates but neither his nor mine were in each plate. They were all mixed and no one ever explained which ones were which so we just kind of had to figure it out.

It's a cute restaurant with an interesting layout. I liked the greenhouse area , good ambiance. The food was tasty but nothing to hype about. The selections on the menu is limited. Our waitress was really nice and courteous and made good recommendations. Overall a pleasant experience.

Overall, food and drinks were excellent. Service was spot on. Our waiter and the rest of the staff were very attentive. My only criticism is that the food came out too fast.

Better fast than slow I guess... We will definitely come back.

Menu too limited. The biggest problem was lighting in greenhouse. Bee needed our light on phone to see! We ordered same dish one rare, one well and we got the wrong meal!! Didn’t realize it till 1:2 way through. Staff very pleadantband helpful. Bus boy gave ya wrong meals. Way, way too dark in there. Would not return. Check out Marisa’s restaurant in ronkonkoma!!!

Great spot for a night out with your girlfriends. The wait staff was attentive without being pushy and let us sit and enjoy each other’s company without feeling rushed.

Very fast seating(we got there about 10mins earlier than reserved time), attentive and friendly service. Food tasted great and offered generous portions. We chose the pork and sirloin, which were cooked perfectly.
Front half of restaurant had bar and was more lively, rear section was more intimate.

Good was excellent. Loud but we sat right in front of the bar. We could have sat in the back if we wanted too
Service was good

Absolutely great atmosphere every time I have been there. Food is such high quality, margaritas use fresh lime juice and it makes the drinks perfect every time. You cannot go wrong there. Service and staff is always so polite and fast.

Consistently delicious. The service could be a bit more attentive to switching plates and making sure glasses of cocktails are full but overall nothing major to complain about

Verde is a tried and true favorite!! I’ve come here for my birthday for two years and it is such a lively, happy place. The servers and atmosphere are always warm and vibrant. The food is always out of this world. Our meal and experience was outstanding and I will be back for plenty more birthdays.

Ryan, the manager, welcomed us, clearly proud of Verde, which set a delicious tone for a delicious meal. I had the pork chop that might be one of the tastiest dishes I’ve ever had. My husband’s enthusiasm for his tacos matched mine. We tried two of the three guacamole’s and they were also great. The chef doesn’t season food by drowning it in heavy sauces, rather he/she uses fresh produce from watermelon to peppers to peaches to balance flavors. From creative cooking and high quality ingredients came yummy, clean food, all of which was served with care. I’m glad I went and I want to go back!

The Shrimp Tacos were excellent; Guacamole not so much... Very surprise for an "Authentic" Mexican restaurant as I have been to many. This really paled in comparison to others.

Also must say the Margarita was a tad week - I don't even think a full shot was in.

I have to say the service was the best thing about Verde.

Staff was extremely accommodating for our last minute reservation for 11 people. They arranged a table outside al fresco style and really made sure we were taken care of.
