I have been traveling to Glendale for work several times over the last 2 months. I keep going back to Bar Verde at Nordstrom because it's so damn good! The first time I was just waiting for alterations so I had a glass of wine and and appetizer... so impressed that I just keep going back! I have only sat at the bar, Z and Ian have been great and provide amazing service with a smile, in true Nordstrom fashion. The beer wine and cocktails are high end and the food... well I like the crab roll!! Honestly, if you're in Glendale check them out for a drink or dinner you won't regret it.

Good food friendly service. Excellent place for lunch

Easy going and quiet. A little expensive for the portions and the type of menu

After a day of shopping this has to be one of the best places to come eat. Towards the end we had an extremely professional waiter who was very attentive and got us our food quickly. The meals were well plated, full of flavor, and had healthy options. I would also recommend the desert as a full experience and kick to the taste buds!

Came here for the dineLA experience and it was a great experience with friends. I really liked the cilantro chicken tacos. They were flavorful and juice flowed from every bite. The brussel sprouts weren't really special compared to other places we have tried. I had to knock off a star for the skirt steak which was supposed to be medium well, but ended up well done. But the size of the steak was a bit lacking too. I would have liked to see a tiny bit bigger steak portion size. The potato gratine was good to help balance the dryness of the steak. I really liked the portion of the cheesecake and the design of the bread pudding which were definitely a must have dessert. Would go back for the cheesecake! The staff were kind and attentive and food came out in a very good pace so we didn't have extra plates or waiting too long. Overall great experience with dineLA

Half way through eating, I found a hair in my food. Definitely wasn't mine or my wife's. Disgusting.

Came in for a Birthday Dinner Date, and actually came in person beforehand in order to ensure that a outside table could be reserved. I did talk to a wonderful host about my little birthday evening and she ensured that a particular table would be available. We confirmed the time and table...things looked good. This did not happen, or at least the first host did not communicate the reservation to the remaining host, and so the particular tables that were ideal were not available. We were seated right away in the outside patio, but couldn't oversee the Americana. Food was great and service was great so that miscommunication wasn't any more than a slight annoyance in a pleasant dinner.

Not many people know about this hideaway on the above floors of Nordstrom's. The menu and drink options are always changing and lots of fun to try the newer changes. Inside seating is contemporary and the outside patio seating is great with a decent view.

I've been to Bar Verde a couple of times now for lunch and dinner and I'm going to review the restaurant based on my most recent visit. My real rating is teetering between 3 and 4 stars, but I'm feeling a bit generous today. We wanted a rooftop view and decided on Bar Verde on the third floor of Nordstrom's. It's actually pretty hidden and not as packed as the other restaurants in Americana because you have to enter through the store. The service was a bit stiff and unfriendly this time around and we had much better service last time, but what are you going to do. It really depends on the wait staff, and ours, unfortunately, was disinterested the whole entire time. What lacked in service was made up by the delicious food. We ordered the crispy halibut tacos (comes with three), BV burger cooked medium with sea salt fries, two orders of the cilantro lime chicken tacos (total of four), and a bowl of the roma tomato basil soup. The BV burger was good with the delicious peppercorn aioli, but I think my favorite was the halibut tacos. It came with miso slaw and avocado and it was delicious. I even added the aioli sauce to it to give it another kick. I was so full by the end of the meal. To be honest, the halibut tacos were a bit steep in price, but the flavor profile was great. The first time, I came I had ordered the campanelle mushroom and chicken pasta, which was unmemorable. This meal was a lot more tasty. Overall, my second experience was much better minus the service. Only con is that there's no bathroom inside the restaurant, so you have to go outside the restaurant across the way to use the restaurant. Not really the best design/floor plan, but hey, I got my steps in lolol.

I've been going to the Americana for years now and I had always wanted to try bar verde but never got the chance. Recently I tried it and I'm in love it is very tasty and there service is amazing. I went with my friends they sat us very fast without a reservation and our waiter was very polite and nice. I got a salad with steak on the side and it was honestly amazing. I do plan on returning and trying new things on there menu.

Came here with a group of four other girlfriends (as seen in my profile photo) to celebrate the birthday of one of our own. As the Yelper, they assigned me to choose a spot to eat and where do women love to go? Nordstrom, of course! I had first been to this location via a Yelp Elite event in December, 2017 because I had never heard of it otherwise! So I opened up my handy Opentable app and reserved right away, and shared the reservation with my four buddies. We had a smorgasbord of appetizers and entrees while inside on that summer day in August of 2018. Our waitress was helpful to our questions and the girls loved everything: the taco apps, the salad entrees, the Rose Hibiscus spritzer mocktails were all divine! Of course a party isn't complete with dessert and we all indulged sharing more sugar notably, the peach cobbler and the Bread pudding - YUM! Parking is part of the Americana so check rates on the time of day you're coming. Reservations recommended for weekends, and head up to the third floor. It will not disappoint and and since been to other locations, I'm a fan!

GREAT PLACE TO GRAB LUNCH AT THE AMERICANA ============================================ DETAILS: ======== Visited on Friday, December 20, 2019 after shopping for my son at the Glendale Galleria and my husband at The Americana. Normally I would opt to go to Din Tai Fung 90% of the time, but I guess I'm burned out. I also felt like getting a salad, but didn't want to deal with the crowd at the Cheesecake Factory. FOOD: 4/5 STARS =============== I ordered a Caesar salad with the addition of salmon. They said it would be served as wedges, but I could have it chopped if I wanted. I opted for chopped. When it arrived it wasn't chopped, but I just sent it back and they fixed that quickly. The salad was delicious! I forgot to order dressing on the side, but it din't matter. Their dressing was just perfect and they didn't put too much of it. The salmon was great too. I topped it off with a nice glass of Sonoma Cutrer chardonnay. SERVICE: 4/5 STARS ================== The service was good from beginning to end. I was seated by a window, but on a sunny day the covered patio would be nice. Right now the diners on the patio have a perfect view of the Christmas tree at The Americana at Brand. AMBIANCE: 3/5 STARS =================== It was o.k. inside, but I wish I would have sat outside. The windows need to be cleaned and it's nothing fancy. It's a restaurant inside of a Nordstrom, so don't take your date there unless you've been married for a least five years. PARKING: 3/5 STARS ================== Nordstrom validates for a couple hours, but if you are going to be shopping then just get some exercise and park at the Galleria.

Bar Verde at Nordstrom's Glendale gets packed for happy hour and dinnertime on weekends. I always say that I'm going, but don't. Well, the story changed this afternoon. And I'm not disappointed. The soup du jour was Spanish and recommended over the tomato bisque. It was a tomato chicken pozole. Too much shredded chicken and not enough corn, however, very flavorful. The soppressata pizza came recommended, but I ordered a beef short rib grilled cheese already. Blueberry jam and a little cheese made the sandwich a bit savory and sweet. Great choice. Great dessert menu. But I passed today. eBar has plenty baked goods. Some of the same stuff. Nice atmosphere. Friendly service.

I visited bar verde with my husband and my 2 kids. I am not from the area so i looked up reviews and I was Far from disappointed. I was greeted by the two hosts Isis and Juliana. They were so kind and helpful during our visit seeing as it was so busy. They even took our drink orders to help out server, crystal, who was also AMAZING. Food was delicious. We ordered chicken tacos, kids salmon, and the steak. Just amazing. I recommended this place to all my family and friends when they come visit Los Angeles! Friendly staff and great food

Our server Joe was excellent. He was friendly, efficient and knowledgable and made us feel at home. We appreciated the nice ambiance overlooking the Americana's fountains and lights as well as the tasty food and wine.

I eat here often but sadly think I had my last day today. I love the chicken tacos but they were so salty today that they were inedible. The food here is sadly so inconsistent but when it's good it's good :( I'm so bummed and am open to them making this up to me

AUG 30-31. The chef has a special 4 course meal and it’s fantastic. And the bourbon cocktail is a must try. Bar Verde has always been a go to place for us. The kids eat well (butter noodles with a side of Parmesan cheese), it’s relaxing and the food is consistently good.

Starting with the fact that I should be ashamed for coming here several times and not writing yet. Let the break down begin!

Eclectic California fusion cuisine, excellent service, chill atmosphere and available balcony seating with an awesome view

Looooove having lunch here after shopping at Nordstrom. Their menu has wide variety to choose from and can also be paired with wines, beers or specialty drinks.

Back to the special: you must try it for the crab cakes in the 2nd course and the roast duck in the 3rd course. I love crab cakes and I was impressed by them: flavorful, crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. My wife doesn't like crab cakes, but liked these. They have the crab flavor and texture with out feeling fatty or over fried. The roast duck was crispy on the outside and juicy inside. It was cooked to a perfect balance of flavor. And you've got to try that drink they've paired with it. It's smooth. It's the perfect buzz for the end of the week. Next time I'll take a picture of the menu. If you go, can you add a comment with the menu?

Great place to stop by when you are out shopping I n Glendale at the Americana on brand. There is also on at the Grove. Top level at nordstrom over looking the AOB when you are sitting outside. FYI they also have a inside area. The menu and the prices change so keep s look out for that. I come here for the chicken cilantro tacos, calamari, and the Romain caesar salad. My fave is the Chicken cilantro tacos are a little small so I would have to order 2 orders when they came in a bigger order but they did cut the quantity in half and upped the price on this so you end up paying more. The calamari is so yummy and crispy and make sure to ask for extra sauces on the side!! Romain Caesar salad is great and love how the char is so it have that charred taste to it. As you can see the photo below is picture worthy. The service is great over all and I had bo probs just good service. They have other food o baths menu but I stick with the norm because am I taco Queen . Stop by and sit outside and enjoy your day!!

Totally overrated. Not able to understand the rave about this place. Nothing about it would make me go back.

Kira G.

I really like this place, it's locked at midl of Americana but the place is actually not really packed. We were sitting outside love the view there The food is good also we took couple non alcoholic drinks really refreshing The service also nice and fast

Jessica Hunter

The food was pretty good. Not as amazing as i wanted it to be but still ok. I thought the steak was a little small. The strawberry mint salad and the tacos were good. I enjoyed the bread pudding but not so much the key lime pie. The staff was nice. It's on the top floor of Nordstrom and they validate parking

Great food!,Great service!

Bar verde is amazing place, never got disappointed. Their menu didn't change much but whatever they serve is excellent! Very friendly service and Chris the manager goes extra mile for the customers. He always make sure that you get the best service and food is exactly the you want it. We are excited about Dine LA which is starting this Friday and Bar verde offering amazing 3-course menu.

Beautiful roof top set up for a nice evening of dinner.. My salad was so fresh and so crisp. The wine selection was good. I got the shrimp pasta it was really good. My bestie got the steak salad and she loved her meal as well!

I wanted a quiet place for a business meeting /lunch and on a weekday at the Americana, it was quiet peaceful almost serene. The fountains were following the music and the area near empty in part because of a windy day.

Ian Weatherford

Im the best bartender there come in and see me for good stuff

Lara H.

Great for happy hour! I would recommend sitting outside, you get a nice view of the Americana. Service is great and the menu is generally on the lighter side. Last time I visited it was 5 mins before happy hour ended and our server was so sweet and still let us get all our orders in before it ended.

Nelly K.

Awesome food and service! Everyone is so sweet and helpful. The food is delicious and the ambiance is very nice. You have to ask for their bread and butter if not they won't bring it . But, it's delicious and warm. Such a pleasant experience. Love the staff

This is one of my favorite spots to hang out for some drinks and food at the Americana. Each time I've visited has left me super satisfied with their quality of cuisine and signature cocktails. The following drinks and dishes are all rated 5/5 in my book: DRINKS VINE STREET BASIL CUCUMBER COOLER AMELIA BILLIONAIRE All pretty sweet, but delicious. Not the strongest, but two will have you buzzing! DISHES WILD SHRIMP AND SAFFRON CHITARRA PASTA HERBED MUSHROOM FLATBREAD FRIES All so savory, light and filled with a fusion of flavors. The fries are perfectly thin and crispy, and not salty at all. We ordered two sides of it last time, it was that good. Not to mention, the service is always incredible. I love sitting outdoors and getting a nice view of the Americana.
