This was our second visit to Bar Verde. We chose it for location - across from the theater. Good service and tasty appetizers although limited menu in this regard. We most liked that it was not noisy as many of the other restaurants in this area tend to be.

Service is particularly slow considering it was almost empty. Wine selection was great. Daily soup was good. The shrimp cilantro salad dressing was way too salty I’ve had it previously and it was really delicious. Daily fish was curried halibut and was very tasty.

It is tucked away in a corner of Nordstrom’s. The menu was interesting and seemed like there were many heathy options. The food tasted great. The server was hard to find and not at all attentive to our needs - like drink refills or replacement silverware after the appetizer was cleared and fork was removed. Had to find her to even get the check and then ask for the machine. No foresight at all on the servers part.

I requested a chocolate cake dessert for my friend’s birthday & I also reminded the maître de that I wanted the Birthday dessert & she said she would remind the waitress & this did not happen. I ultimately had to show our waitress a copy of my booking requesting the birthday dessert & she finally did get the cake. There was never any apology for this major neglect in not fulfilling my original request.

The view is fun (looking out over the Eaton Centre) but the food wasn't worth it. The bread on the sandwich was stale (or had been under the heat lamp too long) and the chicken in the pasta was dry and stringy. The pasta itself had a nice flavour, but it also had a lot of hidden salt. The servers were nice, the restaurant has a good ambience and the wine was lovely, so definitely fine for drinks.

Interesting menu, very good quality meals, excellent service but the ambience is a bit severe leaning towards institutional. If it the décor and layout was funky or chic, the appeal would be much greater. For this reason it is not really a destination restaurant and unlikely to impress a visitor to Toronto where there are many other venues a lot more interesting.

Service and food, as well as menu choices, were excellent. We were given a booth location which afforded some privacy and lower noise level. Overall good spot for a nice lunch, easy location near subway and shopping. Will return, and would recommend to others.
I did previously attempt a Sunday brunch there and while good, was disappointed that the menu did not offer a selection of egg dishes.

I took a friend who I haven’t seen in a couple years and he has never been to your restaurant before. He loved the food, and so did I, and he wants to come back again. The waitress Niki, was awesome! Smiles, polite and she split our salad for us without us asking. We just asked for 2 bowls.

I booked two more lunches!!

My first time with a friend. Very glad to pick this place. Service was excellent. Only minor complain was our dessert Creme Brulee. Previous experienced we had the custard part is luke warm. This one was completely cold. We mentioned to the server. And they replaced it with no issue. And it was delicious.

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.
