Re-visited Verve last night - and the place was an impressive 3/4s full on a Tuesday. Just the best quality fine food and friendly attentive service in a small, yet classy, happy venue. As a part-time Gold Coaster I visit this restaurant often and can't wait for an excuse to get back again and am consistently surprised that the food and dishes keeps on changing yet the standard stays so fabulously high. Reliability is a great thing. Great food, lovely ambiance, good service and nice wine list with much available by the glass or half-bottle. Would be nice to see a few more local wine producers supported and not so much kiwi-juice. Verve is a bit of a secret, a couple of blocks off the tourist strip. It is owner operated and the owner usually always in attendance. This seems to be heavily patronised by locals who probably know there is nothing to compare anywhere else in Broadbeach and few offering this quality experience elsewhere in the city.

We had a nice meal here having gone based on other reviews on trip advisor.

The food and service was good, with the price being somewhat expensive compared to various other alternatives.

We picked this restaurant due to location and being the no.1 rated on trip advisor at the time we looked, and although we enjoyed our meal we felt that it was overrated.

Don't be put off as you will have a nice meal, I simply question it being rated so high as I feel there are better restaurants in the same area.

Ate here on last night of our holiday.Went with the degustation menu which overall was great (venison was a bit tough though and chicken and popcorn soup more of a gimmick but tasty nonetheless). Rest of the meal was fabulous and lovely staff.

Booked at Verve after reading rave reviews on TripAdvisor. Had very high expectations after so many glowing comments and we were delighted that it was every bit as fab as reviews claim.

Small, intimate, friendly setting. Friendly, attentive yet unobtrusive service. Exactly the right length of time between courses. Amazing food!

After a delicious lamb entree, my partner chose beef cheek for mains while I had venison. Both were melt-in-the-mouth tender and full of flavour. We couldn't decide whose dessert (passionfruit marshmallows or donuts with espresso ice-cream) was better, but they were both divine.

Verve fit the bill perfectly for a truly romantic, delicious "special treat" meal. Well worth the wander - about 15 mins from the main dining/hotel strip - and will definitely take us back to the Gold Coast again soon.

We recently dined at Verve and had a great evening. Verve is a restaurant well worth visiting if you enjoy great food and service in a relaxed atmosphere. Shelley and Rachael were both very welcoming and friendly and the service was great - attentive but not obtrusive. We had a delicious meal - my husband had eye fillet and I had the beef cheeks and both were great. My husband also had dessert which was an apple and rhubarb crumble which was certainly not your average crumble, it turned what I consider a fairly uninteresting dessert into something special. The atmosphere at this restaurant is great, very relaxed and a nice setting. You have to know that Verve is there through research such as Trip Adviser or other sites because it isn't in the main part of a Broadbeach but is just a few minutes walk from Jupiters Casino. This really is a restaurant you need to visit when in Broadbeach.
