We enjoy eating at this restaurant and always ask for a booth beside a window. You can see people walking around the Eaton Centre on the inside. It is rather noisy and hard to hear someone who has a soft voice. The food is good and the service as well.

Perfect spot for lunch and a break from shopping. Worth making a reservation in advance as it’s a popular place and you may not get a table if you just walk in.

Busy place with business lunch meetings and shoppers happening but it’s still quiet enough to enjoy and not disrupt a leisurely lunch. Been a few times and salad portions are on the small side whereas portion of fries with burgers and sandwiches are decent.

I had the shrimp salad and it was delicious. My only comment is that there could have been more salad/greens in the plate because I was still hungry afterwards.

In a word, disappointed. Var Verde came highly recommended and thought it would be perfect for a pre-theatre meal. Unfortunately my cod - which was one of the most expensive on the menu was overcooked and under seasoned. My daughter's simple kids pasta was unevenly cooked - some noodles were complete uncooked. All in all, very disappointed. I wanted to like it, but thought many items seemed overpriced and the food just didn't delivery in quality at all.

Bar Verde is a jewel in the Eaton Centre - an opportunity to get away from the mall and the crowds! Ambience and service are excellent and it is very enjoyable to watch the shoppers below if you get seated by the windows over-looking the mall. Food is priced well and quality of ingredients is excellent....just wish they didn't over-cook the fish! Highly recommend Bar Verde!

For a department store restaurant, it was very good, if over priced. However, it was quiet, and calm, which were the attributes we were looking for, giving us a well deserved break from the noisiness of the Easton Centre. We could talk and converse without having to yell over the crowd. The wait staff was lovely and the decor was calm. If one wants a calm, oasis from the craziness of the Easton Centre, this is the place to go.

Salmon nicoise salad was ok. Nothing special. I think there were three green beans in it. Paltry. Salmon itself was a little dry. Noise level was loud because of a false fire alarm in the Eaton Centre.

The food was fine but even though the reservation indicated hat it was for a birthday, the patron tried to put me at a corner table, he least desirable one, and when I requested a better one, threes were plenary of decent tables and we were seated something a bit better.
And then the next day I got a message from you guys saying that I did not honour my reservation with a tone that was rather complaining. It was so very unpleasant, especially after spending quite a bit of money on simple lunch.
