Nothing Special

Went with a group of ladies, roughly 12 on a Wednesday evening last week. Nice that they have valet parking since not much available in that area. Very quiet, only 3 tables occupied. Service was good, why not, they certainly weren't busy! I ordered the zucchini chips as an appetizer, as... read more

We went to Veranda last Friday night, looking for a nice place to eat and ended up having a wonderful time. Our first pleasant surprise was that a young lady was singing live and her voice was extremely sweet and melodic. The staff was friendly, the drinks were good and the food was wonderful, especially the swordfish. Every one in... More

We went there on a Friday night and were pre-warned that there would be a Wedding on site as well. The Hostess was prompt to greet us, and show us to our table. The staff came back on a timely basis with just the right time to fit the mood and needs. The drinks were excellent. When the main courses... More

Four of us ate dinner on a Friday night at the Veranda. Three of us had the fish specials: bronzing, swordfish and stuffed sole. All were well prepared and delicious. The sole was among the freshest fish that I have had in a long time. There was absolutely no smell of fish when the dishes were brought to the table.... More

After years in Bayside, we finally finally had dinner,to celebrate our 61 anniversary. As world travelers, we have sampled restaurants from Bangkok to Tanzania. The owners and staff were more than friendly, the prices fair, the atmosphere cordial. Sure, it doesn't match the ambience of the grand hotel/restaurants of Europe or Manhattan, but it would be hard to find a... More

Our recent experience at Veranda in Bayside, Queens was excellent! I recently organized a last minute birthday gathering for my ninety-five year old mother there on Sunday. As most last minute gatherings often do, the attendance grew out of hand. What started as a small brunch for six to eight people suddenly mushroomed to over twenty guests. The restaurant handled...

I generally don't like to eat out on Mother's Day because frequently you are rushed if the restaurant has timed seatings and the food and service is not up to par. I have changed my opinion after enjoying Mother's Day at the Veranda. It was my first visit (certainly will not be the last!) and there is nothing that wasn't... More

When my husband and I want to eat at an attractive restaurant with very good food, Veranda Restaurant is always at the top of our list. We love the goat cheese fondu and zucchini chip appetizers. Food portions are large so be prepared to take home leftovers for another meal at home. Desserts are yummy, too. Pricing is moderately expensive... More

At the beginning they where great the last few times not so much, if you are lazy and have no desire to cook then come here, French toast and frappe are good... Eggs Benedict not so much it's like they sit for too long before they come out, kitchen needs to get it together I guess, service is good and... More
