It had been a couple of years since I'd last been at La Veranda, but ended up there one night with my husband and was pleasantly surprised/reminded of how nice it is. The service was attentive and friendly and more importantly the food was great. We had a very enjoyable evening out and I was so pleased that my husband... More

I've noticed that some eateries perform well when business is booming while some seem to get a little too laid back when things are slow. This is the second time I've eaten here while visiting family (albeit last time was two years ago...) and there's nothing really negative to say - just nothing really glowing either. They should get credit... More

La Veranda has deteriorated over the years, service is average and food questionable. If you like to gamble and want to takes a "crap shoot" then go ahead and roll those dice. For my money I'll skip La Veranda and go where I can count on a great meal. Bella's is just a couple miles down the road and you... More

We have dined at LV multiple times. It is a great restaurant with a good variety of foods, great service and interesting specials. We frequently get coupons that help although I would describe the prices as moderate.

We enjoyed our meal in the Victorian home setting. We had various pasta dishes that were all different and yummy. Our waitress was very pleasant and moved my Mom to a better location when we requested it. The salad was fresh and had a generous helping of blue cheese crumbles on top. We took half of everything home with us... More

I give three stars for service because the servers were pleasant, but two stars would be justified since it took three requests to get more water, and one expresso never arrived. (By then we were ready to leave and didn't point it out.) Sauces on pasta dishes are good but not sophisticated. Tiramisu (a dessert I make) was basically whippped... More

First timer to La Veranda Cafe and enjoyed dinner. I had the lemon cream risotto with chicken and sautéed veggies, hubby had lasagna and daughter had a pepperoni pizza. All meals were tasty and generous in size; we will be enjoying leftovers tomorrow! For dessert we ordered the vanilla gelato, the creme brûlée and the tiramisu and were not disappointed... More

My husband and I came in for a nice glass of wine. We have becomes weekly regulars. The food and staff members are great. Everything is made fresh to order. The Veranda Salad is a must have. This place is worth trying.
