Have been here several times for brunch. Good selection. The dishes are very good, not THE BEST, but you won't be disappointed. They have a bottomless brunch option for drinks. Cafe Luluc next door is better, but cash only.

Being of Italian descent, I often compare the quality of Italian restaurant food to my own personal experiences with home cooking. We were so pleased with the appetizers of baked clams, fresh seafood salad, and salad nicoise. My family thoroughly enjoyed the fra divolo, clam, and marinara sauces with pasta The chicken and risotto was superb. This was topped off... More

We went by train to Brooklyn for dinner so we could walk back across the Brooklyn Bridge at night. Got off the train at Jay Street. Jay connects to Smith so we started down Smith looking for something appealing. Eventually arrived at Verde and its street appeal won us over some other options. Long narrow room with exposed brick wall.... More

Really nice abiance. The wait was too long for cafe luluc so we stumbled into this cute restaurant for our Sunday brunch. The food was delish. Best french toast around and the chicken sandwich was good. Limited Brunch menu. But it was still good.

After searching online for a nice restaurant for an early dinner prior to a weekday evening business event in an unfamiliar neighborhood, we went to Verde on Smith based on its menu choices and the positive reviews on this site. We arrived at 5:30 and it was fairly empty, but by the time we left, it had filled up enough... More

We went here on our first night in Brooklyn and had a good meal! This restaurant caters for different tastes as we had pizzas, lobster and a salad! Went back so that is a positive but felt waiter was not all that enthusiastic?

Beautiful intimate feeling restaurant, long and narrow. We ate outside on the back patio which was nicely shaded. Walked in with no reservation. Service was immediate, and attentive. Ordered an appetizer, while trying to figure out what to eat. Our table ordered the crispy gnocchi, lasagna, and spaghetti w/ scallops/shrimp. I was afraid the shrimp would be the tiny shrimp,...

Always amazed by how uncrowded this place is, considering the great food and the busy street. So especially good for a quiet conversation.
