This is one of only a few of the many restaurants in Somerville that is not BYOB - but has a bar instead. And occasionally I get tired of wine and want a real drink - but not just any drink, a good drink. This is where Verve comes in. The drinks here are so great because they are well balanced, creative and flavorful - like the Honey Dew Me or the Cucumber Gimlet. Your bill can add up real fast from these goodies but they are worth the prices. Now let's talk about food. The second most important part of any meal, after the liquor. It has been delicious with hearty portions each time. I recommend the Lobster Mac n Cheese but the steak is also good. The décor (particularly of the upstairs dining area) also adds a lot to the ambiance - it is funky but intimate.
I had dinner with my coworkers and I asked the chef to prepare a special Vegan dish for me. It was outstanding and I honestly can't tell you what was in it beyond a mixture of well prepared vegetables. My coworkers were all very pleased with their meals, especially the Ahi tuna. The service was great and I would certainly go back if I'm in the area again.
i've been eyeballing verve for a while now, and when boyfriend stole me away for a date night we landed here. we were lucky enough to snag one of the few outdoor tables - small, wobbly, tighty packed... but totally lovely on a not-too-hot friday evening in july. the drink menu offered about a dozen creative boozy concoctions and a well-rounded wine list. i definitely recommend hitting this place up for a drink- it's one of the few places along the main drag of somerville that isn't byob, and it has quite a cool speakeasy vibe and history. the menu featured some fun seasonal options- everything sounded yummy! we started with the gnocchi appetizer ($12)- the potato gnocchi was light and fluffy, and was seared for a bit of crispness on the outside. served with a mix of summer squash and zucchini and an eggplant puree, it was delicious and unique. for an entree, i went with the waiter's recommendation of the lobster and crab roll with a side of greens and fries ($16). it was... okay. the seafood tasted yummy and the chunks of lobster were lovely, but the chef used too heavy of a hand when mixing in the mayo. it was too much, and the flavor fell flat. luckily, the simple greens salad (mixed lettuces and heirloom cherry tomatoes) was the perfect accompaniment, helping to cut through the mayo flavor. the fries were decent, though a bit limp and oily. boy had the burger ($18), and he was a happy camper. the patty was seasoned well, cooked medium-rare as requested, and the pork belly to top it off was good too... but I'm not sure it was worth the price tag. so food and drink = eh, pretty good. not like "stop everything and haul ass to verve right this second" good, but good enough to pop into if you're local-ish. where did verve go totally downhill? the service. our waiter was friendly enough, but awkward and forgetful. we had to ask a few times for a different dipping sauce for fries (i don't do ketchup, and i asked for whatever- bbq sauce or an aoli of some sort, or even salad dressing). should have been easy enough, but i never got it. the table next to us had the same experience- had to ask multiple times for silverware (and when they got it, it was only 1 spoon... they needed 2 sets). our drink order took forever to arrive. it was just unpleasant. on top of that, there was a table of locals seated behind us- they were not eating, only dinking. a lot. and they were LOUD. as we were seated outside, they kept being visited by locals who spotted them while passing through. no big deal if this was a bar, but for a dining vibe, it SUCKED. as nearby tables of diners cleared out, the group expanded and got louder. I would think that for an upscale-ish dining establishment, drinks-only groups would be contained in the bar area (at least that's how most places i've been operate). the group was disruptive and as the night progressed, i could not wait to leave. i basically begged the waiter for the check asap, left my $12 cocktail more than half-full, and bounced as quickly as possible. verve loses major points in my book (and takes a yelp-stars hit, too) because of the service. i'm kinda still upset about it- it was a totally inappropriate dining experience for the $90 we dropped on dinner. i understand that patrons cannot be controlled, but allowing a drinking-only and ever-expanding group to disrupt diners who are trying to have a pleasant dinner despite tables which are already crammed together is just bad practice. i will not be heading back.
