Excellent visit to vervine last night, decided to try the 8 course tasting menu and what a great experience, the menu was bespoke to our taste and it did not disappoint. Every course was faultless and it was finished with a fantastic dessert. The staff were very friendly and helpful and could not do anymore to make our night. Even the owner had the time to chat about the fish and its origins. What a great restaurant in a great town.

Innovated food with flare and panache. Fish was so fresh and tasty.
Service is quick, on the ball and friendly.
Ask what's good, they know there stuff. Wines are amazing.

We had a great meal and the stafff were charming but the prices just dont reflect the food. Both my scallops and my pertners Monkfish were well cooked and the choritzo accompaniment worked well but there were no side dishes on offer. Dessert was mixed with my blueberry concoction being very tasty but my partners panocotta and hay icecream was bland with the icecream being slightly crunchy. Overall we felt the meal was overpriced and we wouldnt rush to return.

As seafood lovers we have been waiting for a chance to eat at Verveine for some time and finally the opportunity arose. Four of us eat there in April and sadly have to report we were underwhelmed. We opted for the 6 course 'taster' menu. The first two courses were particularly disappointing. The 63 degree egg was OK, but the promised accompanying Arbroath smokie was only present in microscopic fragments. The next course, langoustine and duck lacked any langoustine, unless a small part of a shrimp counts. Things improved after that, but the damage was done by then. For nearly £100 per person (with the accompanying wine taster selection - strictly one small glass per course), this was a very expensive meal. We really wanted to love it but this was not to be. I wrote a very polite email to the restaurant afterwards and never had the courtesy of a reply. Sums it up really.

Fantastic service, even better food. We came here on a loose recommendation and didn't regret it at all. Everything was of a superbly high standard.
