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.

Overall great experience with good service and well prepared dinner salads .... flavour plus. We enjoyed a quiet pre theatre dinner in a very nice environment without the noise of so many other restaurants

Too much dressing on the salmon salad. Drowning in it.
Brussel sprout starter good and bread too.

The only complaint I would have is a little slow service and it didn't appear very busy either. Otherwise food and ambiance was great.

We had family visiting from London and all four of us had a different entree. Everything was prepared beautifully and just delicious; none of us left a scrap on our plate. Our server Natasha was outstanding, and helped make the evening even more enjoyable. Can't wait to go back!

I took my friend for lunch for her 92nd birthday. She loved the ambience, the food and the fact that the restaurant was not noisy. She had a great time and has told me she plans to go back for lunch with her friends.

have been twice. really nice presentation. priced quite competitively for a high quality meal. Perfect for pre Massey Hall or Mervish theatre. Ask for the window seats as they look out into the Eaton centre.

We really enjoy Bar Verse as an after work dinner spot. However, I do think it is time for a new menu. Thank you.

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.

Service was a bit off. Food was average. Happy hour wine prices were good (however, selection slim). Overall, it’s convenient to work and okay for happy hour.

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.

Not sure what all the fuss is about. I ordered the burger which came drenched aioli - disgusting. My wife had the short rib grilled cheese - conceptually great but in execution not so much. I would seek better options in this area... Like the Food Court.

Perfect spot to catch a bite to eat with a good glass of wine. Centrally located but you feel like you're far away from the hustle and bustle of downtown while never feeling rushed for your table. Had the South Western Blackened Chicken and the calamari (fresh not frozen). Both were excellent as was the Merlot from Okanagan Valley, BC Highly recommend this place. Hey, it's inside Nordstrom's so you know it will have to be very good.
