Bar Verde – Nordstrom at the Grove Ratings and Reviews
I'm always bummed when they remove my faves from the menu, but at least it allows me to discover new items, including ones that had been there all along and that I had never given a try. Loving the Salmon Nicoise now. Very attractively presented, and tasty.
If you can find a restaurant these days, where you can dine for lunch for two, including a cocktail each, and come away with a tab under $65.00...you're doing very well. The food wasn't stellar, but it was quite good, and that's good enough. The waiter, Jeff, was absolutely excellent, and our tip reflected his gracious and attentive service. It was a lovely lunch with a good friend, and those are the best days. The atmosphere was fine; we ate outside on the balcony overlooking the esplanade and found it quite quiet despite all the foot traffic below. I would recommend lunch here to anyone. Have never had dinner here, but I can't imagine it being any less than.
There are quite a few tables that sit right by the kitchen and it's very unsightly as well as disruptive when trying to enjoy a meal. In addition, the service could be improved - we were not checked on after receiving our meal and had to ask repeatedly for him to come back. we also had the unfortunate mishap where a server spilled several dishes and they broke near our feet - we asked to move to another table while they were cleaning up, but they never followed through on our request despite several other tables being empty.
Make sure to SPECIFICALLY request indoor seating when you book reservation if it is raining. Otherwise they seem to think it is ok to seat you outside with no cover (even though the rest of the restaurant is empty) and will have a hard time finding alternate seating for you.
I think the restaurant might have been short staffed...based on conversations I overheard, but either way I will not return to this restaurant when I go to The Grove. The evening started off on the wrong foot when the hostess did not provide the correct menus, so we didn't even have the entree menu & we ended up ordering "Apps, Small Bites, & Sandwiches". We asked if they have hot water for a bottle, the hostess said yes & walked away. It took a long time for our 1st round order, as well as all other orders. The food came & my burger was really good...but overall not good enough. I asked for the manager & he never came.
Our food was awesome! Nothing disappointed except our waiter was a little spacey and often oblivious that he was actually at work. We had to ask to have our water glasses refilled and he rarely came by the table. Towards the end of our meal he seemed to have come alive a bit, perhaps he had some coffee or knew it was bill time so let's turn on the charm for that tip... Definitely go here for the food and the view/scenery, but not the service.
The servers here are the best! Even the ones that I had never seen there before, there's always a warmth and groundedness in their energy that I find remarkable. Kudos to the management for cultivating that so consistently. For lunch we always ask for a table outside, overlooking the green at The Grove. Very pleasant setting.... and the Shrimp Linguini rocks!
Food was unacceptable and not to par for Nordstrom. Our daughter totally disliked and did not eat her food and waitress could care less and did not offer a replacement nor did she credit. Our food sucked and even their iced tea was awful. We are from Seattle and know what Nordstrom food should taste like- this restaurant does not in any capacity exemplify the food or the level of service that a Norstrom cafe or restaurant should perform at. Service was lousier than the food.
I can't say enough about the staff here. On multiple occasions, situations have arisen where they've gone well above and beyond the call off duty -- on their own initiative -- just to be of help. That much generosity of spirit from so many can't be mere coincidence -- and it always seems to be completely genuine. Kudos to the management for fostering that kind of climate. And, yeah, the food rocks too.
Servers -- and all the staff, for that matter --are consistently first rate and remarkably personable. A delicious new item, the Grilled Shrimp Linguine, is now giving my old standby fave, the Roasted Chicken & Avocado Salad, a run for its money. What am I gonna do?!!
I have eaten at Bar Verde many times and always look forward to another visit. The fish tacos are excellent and my pizza flat bread was outstanding. Cocktails are tasty and the wait staff work very hard to please. There is a plaza across the way and last time I saw a camel entertaining children. You can't go wrong with Bar Verde!
They are located on the second floor of the Nordstrom store, have an outside terrace with a beautifull view of The Grove. Food is very deliciuos, food presentation is very nice. Good for families, they have kids menu. Prices are not biting :). Would definately recomend to my friends.
