“Great place for brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you're looking for a place to have brunch on the weekends, this a place to consider. In queens you have your pub style restaurant or local dinner but Veranda has a nice restaurant environment. You can sit outside when it's warm. There aren't a lot of choices but there is ample assortment. The omelettes are made with fresh ingredients and the portions are big.

“Elegant & delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

After valet parking our car, our table was ready as per our reservation. We came early before the second couple. Our waiter was gracious and left us alone until our friends arrived. The food was delicious! It was fresh, well prepared and plentiful.
The wine list did not break the bank and was quite good.
All in all, a lovely evening in pleasant surroundings in Queens.

“Great deal for a great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Go here for brunch and you will not be disappointed! It is the perfect place for Mother's Day or a family gathering or even a bridal or baby shower. The food is great with a lot of fresh choices and it is very reasonably priced. In the warmer months it opens onto a nice, shaded terrace that you can forget you are on Northern Blvd. in Queens!

“Good restaurant, good food....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Conveniently located restaurant in Queens with adequate valet and street parking. The restaurant claims they provide American style food. Salad was fresh but nothing special. Two of our party had horseradish encrusted salmon which was very good, but served with cousous that had what seemed to be an assortment of left over vegetables mixed in---not very fresh. One person had lamb chops which were reportedly very good, along with another who had a veal chop which was "ok" to good. Dessert was a tartufo so nothing out of the ordinary. Our waiter Jimmy was attentive and helpful. I did feel the restaurant was a bit pricey.
I would give this restaurant a 3.5 rating but since that is not available, I usually give the benefit of the doubt and uprate. There appeared to be many tables with large parties, and people who seem to know this restaurant and be regulars. If in the area again, I would certainly give it another try.
