Verde on SMITH is a great vibe for brunch! Came with some friends & had a blast. Service was wonderful & the food was so good. Would definitely recommend for brunch, have yet to try their dinner menu.

The food was so terrible we canceled our second entree and just asked for the bill.
Based on the mixed reviews my husband and I decided to try this restaurant out but let me save you time - we went here for dinner on a Friday night and the food was the worst we’ve ever had. Here are the cons:
• My husband ordered a glass of Montepuciano which arrived in a dirty glass and tasted rancid as if the bottle had been left opened for a while
• we ordered the octopus which smelled fishy and was served with yellowish/wilted arugula
• we ordered the carbonara which was served in a watery type sauce that had no flavor
• When we asked the waiter what their speciality dish is the waiter replied “everything we make is good” and didn’t engage or provide their knowledge of the menu

Pro: the owner seemed concerned that we didn’t eat our food and asked for the bill. He offered us a free meal but (we don’t see how they could change our view of their poor food quality unless they make major changes to their kitchen) we declined his offer.

Tried this restaurant in our daughters new neighborhood
We went with our son and we were seated between 2 very noisy tables that were celebrating
The management was very kind and discreetly moved us to the front of the restaurant where it was much quieter
Our appetizers were very good ; grilled octopus & burratta & meats . 3 chicken dinners were also very good
Nice neighborhood find 😉

Our initial server seemed bothered and hurried from the moment we arrived. Whenever we asked a question about the menus he would interrupt us and say that everything they serve was delicious.

Our entrees took over 40 min to come to our table. Then,
all of our food orders came out wrong (e.g. I asked for no mash potatoes and my plate came out with mash potatoes. One of the other party members asked for a cream sauce and got red sauce).

When we had to return a drink because it wasn’t properly made, the server shrugged and said “Well, there’s nothing I can do.” And still charged us for the drink.

A second server (perhaps he manager) realized that things were going wrong and was quite apologetic. He even ordered us free dessert. But unfortunately, even the dessert tasted bad.

Would not recommend this restaurant for food or service.

The only 2 problems I had were that our drinking glasses were a bit "spotty" for my liking (so I requested new ones) and the food needed a tad bit more salt. Aside from them bringing me the wrong order, but quickly correcting the situation, and the 25% service charge with the audacity to ask for EXTRA tip, a great time was had by myself and my 2 lady companions.

Vodka sauce seemed a bit watery and lacked flavor. Couldve mixed the chicken with pasta better then plopped on top. New management needs adjustment

My fiancé and I had a wonderful time having dinner to celebrate a month until our wedding! The waiter was fabulous and was extremely kind. The food was delicious. I had the chicken dish in a burgundy sauce with onions and mushrooms. The chicken was tender and sauce was amazing. They even brought me out some extra broccoli since I thought the broccoli raab was regular broccoli. Will definitely be back!

The Crispy Gnocchi is a MUST! Delicious dish and the gnocchi aren’t heavy either - nice & light! Would also recommend the Spinach & Gorgonzola salad - another yummy dish!

Not what it used to be. What used to be a very good Italian restaurant with a well thought out delicious menu has now become a noisy common place Mediterranean Italian with 3 TVs, and a mediocre common place menu.
The octopus appetizer was good as was the eggplant. That was the best part. The shrimp scampi were cold and over cooked, the tuna entree was tasteless, the penne primavera was undercooked and chicken Marsala was just average. Service was ridiculously slow, likely due to being understaffed. I miss the old Verde.

Food was decent, waiting staff seemed to be busy with other tables. Ordered the surf and turf for 2, steak was a bit over cooked(ordered medium-rare, was cooked closer to medium-well), other guests were extremely noisy. This is not a good place for a quiet date.

My dad and I went to the Verde on Smith to catch up as father and daughter. We received great service and my dad LOVEDDDD the Branzino. It was a little over seasoned in my opinion but still delicious and FRESH. I will definitely be returning. Well priced and great service

Went for a Monday night dinner date in Brooklyn. Wish we were local because we would make this a regular place! Delicious food, beautiful restaurant with an extremely well priced menu in a great location in downtown Brooklyn. Highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed!!

I made a reservation the night before. We had been there before and enjoyed it. This time, however, they didn't honor our reservation. It was bad enough I had to make it late because that's all they had, but wanted us to wait an extra 20-30 minutes. They said they had texted me to change the reservation, which I never got. Then changed to I should've gotten an email, which I also did not get. They were not sincere, basically rushing us out if we didn't want to stay. In that moment, I get a notification that my reservation has been cancelled. Sent while I was there. So we just left. Never coming back.

Food and service was great. We came as “Bottomless Drinks” was just ending and some of the patrons were talking (screaming) at unbearable levels. Waiter apologized but this put a damper on the meal.

Super loud at peak brunch hours, and our table was literally 2-3 inches from another couple, so it was hard to have a conversation without feeling like we were eating with strangers. But food was excellent. Staff was nice but busy so not super attentive.

My Girlfriend and I went for Valentine Day on Feburary 16. We walked in was greeted and seated quickly even though we were early. She enjoyed her ocotopus salad for app, I had cod fritters. I thought it would be something close to a crab cake but fried. It was regualar cod fried. It tasted good so I didnt care at all. Plus i could have read the description wrong. For dinner she had a seafood pasta, and I had bronzino. My fish was so good, they asked me if I wanted it deveined which was nice because I didn’t i like to do that myself. My girlfriend had not one complaint so it was a good night out
