“Delicious food and great service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

When you see several guests in a restaurant during the summer months on Marco, you know the place has to be good. The service in this restaurant is outstanding which makes the food the star. The servers are attentive, timing is spot on, and knowledge of the menu is unmatched. The food is made to order, so special requests are no problem.
The meal begins with fresh bread and an infused herb oil for dipping. On this particular night, both a salad and entrée special were being offered. My friend tried the parmesan crusted grouper special that came with slices of purple potatoes and an arugula/tomato side with balsamic reduction. Not only was the food delicious, but reasonably priced. The filet mignon is always a sure bet if you are in the mood for steak. Save room for dessert! On this particular night, I tried the german chocolate cake. This yummy version is deconstructed with the caramel sauce, toasted coconut on the plate with a delicious chocolate cake and scoop of ice cream on top. There was definitely no leftovers on this particular night!

“To die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

This may be one of the best Gourmet meals I have had in the last few years!
The mushroom Crostinni appetizer was melt in your mouth good. My husband had the pork
Prime rib and it was impressive. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it melted in your mouth.
We ended the meal with a great Bananas Foster. The wait staff and chef were professional and friendly. Love it and think everyone should give this a try. Worth every penny!

“Excellent place to celebrate an anniversary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

We came to Verdi's last night to celebrate our anniversary, and found that the table cloth had been decorated with table confetti and a message saying happy 37th wedding anniversary. This set the tone for a superb dinner with attentive servers (all of whom congratulated us) and fantastic food. Not the cheapest on the island, but you pay for what you get ...... well worth a visit

“always above average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Verdi's is a classic bistro with a flair for elegance. Each time we dine there we leave relaxed and satisfied. They never rush you and the chef always makes a table visit to ensure your meal met expectations. An excellent menu, an excellent venue. Great staff great food. Don't visit Marco without a visit to Verdi's.
