Place is cozy, clean, neat, romantic but if you are vegetarian you are out of luck. You basically talk to them in to fixing you something simple like girl vegetables. Twice I experienced this one time it was good second time vegetables were not great selections. Please note that other people enjoyed their dinner.

My husband made reservations for Valentines day dinner months in advance. It was perfect! Smoked turkey mousse with crackers, strawberry, spinach, and goat cheese salad, raspberry sorbet, suffer quail with berries, and chocolate dessert was what I had.

It was a wonderful dinner, crab cakes, salad, salmon and a beautiful bottle of Pinot noir and coffee. Wonderful service and an intimate setting. Make a reservation, everything is prepared fresh and everything was delicious.

The Veranda is a favorite for special occasions. The ambiance provides for quiet conversation, decor is traditional, food was superb, and service impeccable. We were treated to an after dinner drink in celebration of our anniversary. Very impressed with this dining experience!

OUCH, about sums it up. An poor attempt at high-end dining. I had a filet and I will say that the quality of the beef is very, very good. However, preparation and presentation were pathetic. There is apparently no choice as far as side dishes. I had a very small vegetable and teaspoon of what might pass for mashed potatoes.... More

This restaurant wants to be fine dining but falls short. Black table cloths and high prices do not qualify for fine dining. We were greeted by the hostess who also was our server. Our table was near the kitchen and when the door swung open, it blinded us. We had to hail our server over to order drinks (beer and... More

We had friends who introduced us to this restaurant. Both of us purchased a coupon for use in January. They have a wonderful twist on some traditional foods such as Fire and Ice shrimp or the Diablo filet. The portions are a good size. The rolls are wonderful as well. I really liked the owners and the staff. A great... More

The Veranda, not only is the food consistently great, the service is knock-your-socks-off good. Family run and inspired dishes knock it out of the park for any occasion. With choices like steak Diablo, fire and ice shrimp, drunken quail, and chicken jubilee, you can't go wrong! Make sure to call ahead for reservations, they are often booked up and that... More
