basil ice cream to start the meal-who would have thought!

The salad with the basil helado (ice cream) was great. The chocolate pudding and the churros for dessert were worth saving room for.

I would have rated Verdad as Average, given the quality of the food and service. However, my group's experience with the restaurant's paella led to this Poor rating. Our group of five ordered several appetizers, with the chicken and chorizo paella costing $44 following as our main dish. The enormous paella pan that was delivered was almost entirely rice. There...

Verdad has fabulous tapa dishes and entrees, but my favorite is the carnitas, followed by a pitcher of margaritas! Great atmosphere to share with friends or family.

My wife and I had been here a few years ago and were underwhelmed. Much better this time. Still a little unsure if this is a true tapas restaurant or just a Hispanic themed place. Had excellent guacamole with strawberry accent. Limited cheese plate but very tasty - went well with the jamon, especially with the Albariño on the wine... More

We were there in the winter and loved it. Went back recently to find different menu . Service was great. Everyone loved their appetizers and we shared vegetable paella. Restaurant lively but not too loud. Prefer upstairs .. More quiet but wasn't open when we were there last. Would definitely recommend!

have eaten at Verdad several times but just returned after a renovation of the interior which opens up the restaurant . Food as good as always with friendly, helpful staff, and a chef that comes and visits with customers.Always good to go, and most recent meal did not disappoint.

Avoid a Friday evening if you want to be able to hear your friends talk. Wine prices were ridiculous, beer prices normal for upscale place. Waiter suggested we order 2-3 dishes apiece, we did 2 apiece and it was too much food, some of which was not good. The flatbread and the snap peas were great. Shrimp tacos were bad,... More

We go here frequently because it's close to the movie theater. However every time we sit in the bar, there is one bartender who is so incredibly mose and has a scowl on her face. Other than that we had great food and mostly good experiences. The one bartender who is miserable all the time really does put a damper... More

Everything we tried was excellent! Three of us shared four dishes, which I will list because every one was delicious: - beet salad - tacos de carne - empanadas - black truffle flat bread. The server was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere warm and comfortable. The food was fabulous. Will definitely go back.
