We had a fabulous birthday lunch with awesome view and sunshine! It was so relaxing and comfortable we were reluctant to leave.

The menu could use more vegetarian options - many more. Otherwise the selection is good.

Loved the flourless chocolate cake! Tacos were decent (7.5/10), wild salmon nicoise was also 7.5/10 (salmon was a bit overcooked). Good food, great view, friendly service. Wouldn't say amazing compared to other places.

I used to love it here, but food seems to have been simplified and not as delicious as I remember. Seating and atmosphere are also basic now, perhaps showing it's age.

We have never been disappointed at Bistro Verde. We like everything about it - including being so close to shopping....

A good place for lunch with a friend, especially if you can score a window table. Pizza is excellent. Wine list is a little pricey.

Had a wonderful meal and our server, (Arol?) was great. We started our “day downtown” with lunch at Bistro Verde and we’re very impressed with the food and the service.

Service was terrible. It was a Wednesday night and only one person working behind the bar. It took 30 minutes to get a drink. I had to follow up with the bartender to get that drink.

Reservation made 2 months in advance for window table for annual birthday celebration at Nordstrom which was not honored due to guest calling that same morning, according to very rude hostess, requesting the only window table that would accommodate 5 or more guests. I was told I had to call to confirm request by hostess. Waitress was inattentive , never even refilled water glasses although many tables were given water carafes. Food was only saving grace.

Always love visiting this restaurant for its fresh and quality food and wonderful ambience. The service is slow, but I’ve liked the relaxed pace as it allows more opportunity to visit with the person I’m dining with. Would definitely recommend!

It was a fun experience for both me and my friend!! We enjoyed our food and the nice view we have our table right beside a big window. Our server was very attentive and really awesome!! I'll be back for sure.

Server was great. Hostess was very rude. Really didn’t seem like she wanted to be working there or interacting with anyone. Didn’t even say hello, smile or give any greeting whatsoever. We almost decides to go somewhere else

Had lunch there both Monday and Wednesday. Both days we waited unacceptably long for our food. On Monday they comped us coffee and cake because they too were embarrassed that we did not have food for 40 minutes

The restaurant was empty and it came as no surprise once the food came out. Appetizer was Burrata and it was pretty much as anticipate. As far as a simple appie goes, it hit the spot. Mains were the crab roll and shrimp pasta. I thought I was eating airplane food. The crab roll seemed to have imitation crab which was wholly overpowered by what tasted like handfuls of raw onion. Fries were surprisingly good. The pasta was horribly bland, the chorizo tasted like rubber, and the pasta sauce was way too sweet. For desert we had the bread pudding which was flavourless and burnt. An absolute waste of money

The problem with this restaurant there are too many items on the menu that you want. It is hard to pick just one. The brussel sprouts are wonderful, the honey drizzle is perfect. The turkey club was filling excellent and very filling. Cannot wait to try more items on the menu.
