Amazing new Mediterranean Restaurant – Went here last thursday night for dinner and drinks with Friends. We really enjoyed everything from the food to the service, as we were finishing up our meal the music got better. We even ordered a hookah later in the night once we were done eating. The lamb 3 ways was perfect. I will definitely be back again.
I won't be back – This lounge is beautiful, spacious, has great music, and the hookah service is good. Unfortunately, if you come here, prepare to wait unneccessarily outside for an unreasonably loong time, as the doormen are deluded, and believe that the empty lounge is actually packed with exclusive high end people and they can't let "just anyone" in. The manager is very forgetful, as we came for a friends party and reserved a table and he had no recollection of it. Lastly, the purveyors of this establishment have no souls, as the above occurred on a day that it was pouring and the wind was 50 miles an hour.
This lounge is NOT exclusive, NEVER get's crowded, and is NOT worth the hassle. I will NOT be back, and I will caution EVERYONE I know, to do the same.
Really great place, but not necessarily hassle-free – I give this place 4 stars instead of 5 because of the initial hassle of getting in. I go to Veranda often on weekdays, and the one time I showed up after 10pm on a TUESDAY, the doorman gave me and my friend, two girls, a difficult time getting in. He claimed there was a Russian party and he couldn't let us in because they took out the space for the evening, but because we knew our male friends were already inside, so really the doorman was full of it. A friend from inside had to come get us and when we got in it was empty, and there was no Russian party.
We still had an excellent time as we had been having because it never gets too crammed, the staff is so friendly, the hookah service is great and the music is always flawless (some nights they have a tabla player!). All in all, a recommended place. The doorman and floor manager both later apologized and gave me their information to get in next time. Despite that one evening, I will be going back.
