Tried Verjus last night after reading several reviews. Almost turned around and left upon pulling into a near empty parking lot but VERY glad I didn't. The place is charming, the owners are lovely, the soft jazz music is terrific and the food is glorious....More

This is our go-to restaurant for special occasions. The food is great and the restaurant is quiet, so you can have a conversation without shouting across the table. And the service is very homey and friendly.

Verjus is a quiet restaurant with delicious food and friendly service. I had the Pekin Duck, which was perfectly prepared. The wine list is thoughtfully selected and reasonably priced.

Verjus food was great. Had the tomato appetizer, chicken and salmon and all tasted great and had very nice presentation. Also the service was great. Decor of the restaurant can be done better and the dessert was just ok.

We were in this French restaurant before. Even though they have special and themed dinner events every so often, many menu items on the regular menu did not change, and we were therefore fortunate to find some of the dishes we had liked very much...More

We were served by Madame, and received a visit from the Chef, Monsieur. Very friendly and helpful. The wine menu was just the right selection. The starters and main courses were excellent. Only the espresso coffee was a let-down.
