The place was dead quiet on a weeknight but we enjoyed it. Our server Mark was great and very attentive to us. He gave us complimentary appetizers as well. I had the mussels and lobster bisque which were great, and my husband has the tagliatelle with pigs head -- also delicious except for the smell that pork sometimes gives off.... More

Our group of 8 was in a celebratory mood and decided to dine here. Everything we ordered was top-notched: arugula salad, chilean seabass, ribeye steak, lucban chorizo risotto, even the plain rice tasted far from being plain. Ambiance was charming. Wheelchair accessible including restroom. No baby changing table. Resto has ample parking and is situated right beside Starbucks. Service by... More

This spot offers dishes in keeping with this ridge town. Its dark wood decor with al fresco balcony tables is consistent with its theme of serving good international dishes. I particularly like the Lucban Longganisa Risotto and the Angus Steak.

Although a bit pricey compared to other restaurants we visited in the Philippines, the food at Verbena was very good, comparable with counterparts in Europe.

Interesting menu, the caprese salad was good, but with a too strong dressing and lacked freshness. The ribeye steak for 2 that was served, was too well done to be medium and slightly dry with a 2peppercorn sauce that frankly kills the meat. They served delicious fresh juices with the meal and service was impeccable. I guess the kitchen need... More
