The bay window seating is beautiful despite the fact that the tables are close together and some people talk extremely loud which was distracting. The food was excellent and Pete, our waiter, was friendly and professional attending to our every need. Caesar salad,... More

This is great for any occasion - I always take visitors here and love to eat in the courtyard! The bar is lovely and the piano bar is great. As a Realtor, I give new buyers gift certificates to the Veranda so they can enjoy a celebratory meal!

We recently celebrated a dear friend's birthday at the Veranda. From the moment the maitre d' greeted her to the gracious good-bye, she was made to feel special and important. Every dish served was unique and delicious. The Veranda is outstanding and consistent in ambiance, service and food quality.
