If weather permits you must dine in the courtyard, very relaxing and beautiful. All of the trees are lit up, Tony Bennett & Frank Sinatra playing in the background, friendly servers, wonderful food. One of our favorite spots to take out-of-town guests, very impressive.

A little old fashioned, but good, there is a very nice outdoor section betw the restaurant buildings which gets a great cross-breeze. EXCELLENT service (our server, Heath). We sat indoors and I recognized the scent of a great garlic bread immediately upon entry. It was as good as I thought; fresh garlic! We had the app of fried zucchini which... More

We celebrated my dad's 80th at La Veranda and were more than a bit disappointed. My daughter ordered the chicken marsala and about 4 bites into found a dead cockroach amongst the mushrooms. This was such a shock, but not as much of a shock as how the owner handled it. I have been going to La Veranda since my... More

Visited on a busy Saturday night with another couple. Had read the mixed, mostly favorable reviews. All had an excellent meal. The chicken cacciatore was superb. From soup/salad to dessert, all delicious. Like I said, busy Saturday night, we felt rushed. Drinks arrived, followed by a couple of requests for our order and our order arrived quickly. The outside area... More

We had a tasteless, over-sauced pasta and some wine and before I had finished my glass, the maitre d'/owner started to turn the lights out. Presumably he wanted to go home - it was 9.30pm. When my husband told me to sit still and finish my wine, the owner shouted over to us "We're closed". My husband asked him to... More

We had a great evening here! The courtyard is lovely. We called ahead for reservations and they were ready when we arrived. We waiter Kenny was very attentive and recommended the Veal which 2 in our party enjoyed, we also tried the Eggplant and it was very good. For an appetizer we tried the baked clams although small the topping... More

I have just written the following message to La Veranda; I had diner for the first & last time at your restaurant last night. I didn't mind the wait, or the very strange waiter who served us, greeting us with an extended monologue about his daughter's behavior and the new car he just bought her (???) but once we finally...

This was a last-minute decision to dine here and we were not disappointed! All 6 of us loved our meal but the SEA BASS was outstanding! Also our waiter was incredibly entertaining and the service became part of the whole experience. Would return for sure if ever in the area again.
