We won a gift card to Verbena in a silent auction to benefit a nonprofit and looked forward to using it on a recent visit to Kennet Square after reading reviews and viewing the website. We were not disappointed. One might not expect a restaurant...More

The space is beautiful. Quaint and cozy but the food is the real star here. We were with friends and were immediately greeted and walked to our table. She gave us plenty of time to chat with our friends and then took our order. 3...More

Locally sourced, ever changing, creative chef. This time (our third) we tried the 8 course tasting menu. Fantastic dishes, just the right amount of food, with room for the apple-magnolia sorbet!

I can't recommend this restaurant. Service was what you would expect but meal didnt stand up to hype and cost. I would recommend Portabella restaurant right next door. This was a swing and a miss for us.

Chef-driven menu featuring local ingredients. Wonderful small plates that we split and were completely full at the end of the meal. BYOB is a nice option and we spent more on food and less on wine than in typical restaurants.

Eating here reminds me of restaurants in Europe. The menu is limited so that the chef can take advantage of the freshest ingredients, and we found that very common when we were in Europe. We've been here several times since they opened. Our first few...More

Yes I think it is per person but I suggest you call to double check the price . It’s not expensive and well worth being able to bring an expensive bottle along with you and not paying double the restaurant price for it... More
