Excellent every single time!

Even though my hubby and I enjoy the happy hour mostly at the bar we have hosted a large Valentines Day gathering perfectly. Lots of choices in seating and easy to plan your time there in whatever way you wish! Hubby ALWAYS has the app quail and I ALWAYS enjoy the bacon wrapped shrimp app... read more

After touring wine country in Dripping Springs my husband and I decided to stop at Verde's so we parked our car with no zero problem and we were seated right away everyone was seated in the patio area. I started to order the Tequila Bellini an appetizer which was the avocado dip with chips and the another incredible spaggatti squash... More

Our kids had their rehearsal dinner here and it was great! The chef/owner spent a lot of time with them, planning the menu, tasting food, rearranging things when our group got bigger than expected... He even created a special dish just for them. Feeding a large group usually turns in to rubber chicken, but not here. Everything was delicious and... More

Every time we visit, we are welcomed and feel at home. We have never had a bad meal and the service is fantastic. Our kid loves the outside lawn and my husband loves the Mexican margarita. Wine list is thorough and interesting. The fresh fish dishes have never disappointed. Gotta try this place if you are in the area. Worth... More

It's not a typical Mexican restaurant. No tacos, burritos or fajitas. I had the pork chop and it was pretty good. My wife had linguini and it was good too. The queso dip was $8.50 on top of the $3.50 for chips and salsa. It was a big bowl of queso but I didn't like it as much as other... More

This is a place we often forget to use because it is a little "out of the way" on Hamilton Pool road, but we should not! It is always a "safe bet" for very good food with decent service. This is not the standard "Tex/Mex" food you would expect. It is an interesting "take" on Mexican food which will delight... More

I strongly recommed the bacon wrapped shrimp app. I get this every time I am at Verde's. For dinner I recommed the chipotle pork chop.

We are fortunate enough to live near this great restaurant and have been here on several occasions. The food is consistently good. Expect a wait on weekends and during nice weather. We love the open area in the back where the kids can play.

Restaurant was practically empty on a Friday night, which should have been our first clue. Service was okay. Quail appetizer was very good. Food was served luke-warm. Small pour on the wine by the glass. Atmosphere is just okay.

If the food weren't so delicious we wouldn't keep coming back. The Noise from surrounding tables is so loud inside during peak times we can't even communicate without yelling. We call in orders often to take home for that reason. Some simple sound absorption buffers in the ceiling would help immensely.
