I have been going to this restaurant for many years and I have always been pleased with the service, food and atmosphere. Always pleasant for meeting friends or dining alone. My all time favorite dish is the Grilled Branzino fish. They filet it for me and it is always cooked to perfection! The garlic shrimp is also a favorite, again... More

Friendly staff, great food and a great evening. We were a group of four and had the baby garlic shrimp, swordfish, salt cod and garlic chicken entrees. They were all fantastic!

I have been here on four occasions for a staff dinner with colleagues, and each time the experience was exceedingly satisfying. We were always greeted cordially and seated immediately. The staff was very attentive to our needs, and they made us feel both important and welcome. In particular, Arthur has been consistently gracious and accommodating. His review of daily specials...

This has been our go to restaurant for years when we're meeting friends or going alone. We're always assured of a great meal, fresh and plentiful. If it's seafood or steak, you're going to leave with full stomach and maybe a doggie bag. Weekends are busy and there is a wait even with a reservation but it's still worth it.

I love it there, especially the delicious garlic shrimp. Took my family for a treat after my trip to Portugal. Kids went nuts over the potato chips family style. My favorite entre is the cod dish. Yummy! Close my eyes and I am back in Portugal.

Food is very good and you get plenty of it. The only thing is if you make reservations on a Saturday during the busy hours of the night you might have to wait

I was very excited to visit this restaurant since I previously studied abroad in Spain. The paella dish was huge and could have fed my entire family. The service was excellent and the food was very good. It did have a very formal atmosphere and so personally I would go for something a little more relaxed.

We have been going to Villa Verde for years and they are consistently good for a nice night out. Their prices are comparable to other restaurants (most entrees and specials in the $25-$35 range) in the area and for that price you get a calm atmosphere, white tablecloths, and very attentive service from waiters and bus boys. The food is... More
