Bar Verde – Nordstrom at the Grove Ratings and Reviews
Our food was awesome! Nothing disappoint ...
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!

Excellent dining inside the Nordstrom store in one of the most charming shopping malls in Beverly Hills. The location could hardly be better and the food is real top notch. I would definitely go again and enjoy other dishes.

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?!!

This place does not disappoint. It is my go to spot and have eaten here with various friends and acquaintances. It is consistently delicious. We've tried most, if not all the offerings over the years. I love them all.

It's very hard for me to resist ordering my fave Bar Verde menu item, Roasted Chicken And Avocado Salad, but I finally managed to break free and tried the Shrimp Pasta (new item). It was absolutely brilliant; and the service was wonderful as always.
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!
Very cousy bar in the heart of The Grove
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.
LOVE THE STEAK
I had the Rib Eye steak, medium, MAGNIFICENT FLAVOR and PERFECT TEMPERATURE!!!...The Bohemian Sidecar Drink, also Faboulous!
This is my wife and my favorite place to dine when at the grove.
Will definitely keep coming back as long as they keep that steak!
Great concept and execution – glorious food
I've dined at Bar Verde numerous times, since we first discovered it in the Grove. The space is well designed, the outdoor seating area offers a view of the trees, the indoor space has an outstanding bar, and the restaurant caters to a varied clientele. The entrance is special, allowing easy access by elevator, accommodating the disabled, with exterior doors that open with the press of a button. The staff is knowledgable and attentive without being intrusive.
This time when torn between the thin crust pizza and the burger, the server helped me to decide. She said that the burger was very good. She was right. It came exactly as I ordered it, without a bun or sauce or salt fries, accompanied by salad with dressing on the side and a side of ketchup.
The burger itself was cooked exactly as specified – at the more done range of rare. It was perfection – a succulent patty that was well formed and lightly packed, topped with cheese and caramelized onions. Other than needing a bit of salt, from the Trudeau salt grinder (a welcome touch), it was missing nothing. Burgers aren't that difficult to do, but here in Los Angeles, it seems tricky to find one with the proper balance and texture (lightly but not firmly packed).
The Bar Verde burger was a welcome contrast to a downtown (DTLA) restaurant near the library which botched the job, at a higher price point.
Perfect for Night Out During the Week
Bar Verde is a great spot located within Nordstrom at The Grove. I cam here on a Tuesday evening and the service was great, food was delicious and décor was trendy. Will definitely recommend this place to friends! It was also great because our dining experience didn't take too long and my friend and I were able to get our shopping on!
Great Date Place
The location is a bit strange--the restaurant is literally inside the Nordstrom on the second floor. This provides for a confusing ambiance, in that to your right, you may have a very nice second-story view out into the Grove Courtyard, and to your left you're looking into the women's coats and shoes section of the department store. I imagine this effect is abated if seated outside on the patio, rather than inside where we were.
Our dining experience was very good overall, especially on a major dining holiday, and really the only kinds of people who wouldn't be blown away are "foodie" snobs. If you aren't one, it's a good place, you can probably stop reading here. If you are, let's read on.
The service was impeccable. Friendly and attentive, the staff sat us immediately (despite being very late due to the parking situation, discussed later) and were never looking around for our cheerful waiter. I particularly liked that a Valentine's Day set menu was available, but wasn't forced down our throats. Food came on time, in perfect order and not too slow or quickly.
The food itself was good to very good, if not particularly memorable. We had the poke appetizer, the scallops entree, and the chocolate raspberry cake for dessert. The poke was fine and not fishy, nothing to write home about flavor-wise. The scallops were executed proficiently. The dessert was tasty, but tasted commercial. We had several cocktails, which were probably the highlight of the meal, well-mixed & interesting.
In sum, I found it to be a great date spot. A bit on the pricier side for what it is and fair warning--if you go on a holiday, parking is an absolute nightmare at the Grove. But if you're looking for a convenient, classy, inoffensive place to take a new romantic interest (who will be the focus of your evening, not the food) then this place is perfect.
