Best spot before the show. The food is good, with a menu that changes with the seasons and always offers up a special. The service is always warm and friendly. It is excellent value, with great wine offerings at a very reasonable price by the bottle. You can be in and out in 90 minutes.

We were greeted by a pleasant woman at reception and we had a good server who worked with me on tailoring a meal to fit my allergy. The kitchen was creative in making a sauce and a dressing I could eat, rather than just leaving the meal without due to allergy.
Overall, the meal was good and the setting was comfortable and relaxing.

Kids menu is excellent except the fact they should have fries as a side of choice or various side choices to pick from for kids. The steak choice for adults now is not their best cut of meat. Too much potatoes on each adult meal.

I have been to Bistro Verde a few times over the years since it opened and I had been happy with the service and food. My most recent visit will probably be my last. I ordered the Traditional Breakfast which consisted of fresh fruits, 2 slices of toast, scrambled eggs and potatoes. For the toast, butter and blackberry jam was included. I noticed a piece of hair inside the ramekin that held the jam so I sent it back and did not touch the replacement. I was disappointed that the scrambled eggs were not only cold but had some egg shells in it. There was no apology for the hair in the jam and egg shells in scrambled eggs is not acceptable.

This was a first visit to Bistro Verde and I was very pleased with our experience. We were taken to our table promptly and the wait staff appeared quite soon after. The menu offers a good variety of options for differing tastes. The Salade Niçoise which I ordered was very good and my husband was very happy with his chicken sandwich and fries. We would definitely return there.

The service was really good ! We ordered the prawn pasta which was very flavourful and delicious. However when we ordered the steak and asked for medium rare, it served well done. That wasn’t what we hoped for but the server was able to take it off of the bill. That’s a very gesture. The Brussels sprouts was crispy and the potato was sweet and crunchy. When the bill comes, they gave you some mint chocolate which was a perfect ending for the meal.

It was okay. Staff are friendly but not really well polished. I stared at my empty cocktail glass for the rest of the evening. At $14 + liquor tax + gst + tip, the drinks are on the high side. You'd think they would have at least offered me another one. A decent interior with good city views and location. An optional when the top restaurants are booked solid.

It’s a nice spot but it seems that they changed a few things.
They use to have the mini taco appetizers 4 for $7.50 now they took two tacos out for the same price! Wow!
When people order fish it stinks like old fish too!!!

I usually bring my team or clients because I like the ambience but the food is ok. One of my favourite dishes is the Brussels sprouts frites - unfortunately today’s version was not that great - not too many Brussels sprouts mostly leaves and mostly burnt - I never complained about it - usually it is quite good but today was blackened sprouts

I have visited this restaurant since it first opened. Just loved the Chili prawn pasta. Service always very good. However, my recent visit was very poor the service was terrible. Lots of mistakes. Disappointed to find that the menu has changed and that they have replaced the Chilli prawn pasta with the prawn chorizo sausage pasta. This had very little taste and was unappetising. So, not sure about revisiting Verde in the future.

This was a meeting with business friends. I had difficulty making a reservation by phone and finally used Open Table which was excellent. I was warmly received and seated and offered a drink while I waited. When they arrived we were well attended and our order taken. The choice of food was good and was soon served to us. We stayed quite some time after finishing our meal as we had much to discuss and were not interrupted or made to feel that we should go. Altogether a very enjoyable experience.
