    I left a phone message with my contact info regarding the typos on their online menu. One has been fixed. I have not been contacted. I did not ask for any compensation, I offered to help them out, privately. Is the online menu identical to the printed one?

    • Dave says:

      Thank You for reaching out to Verde. For some reason I
      cannot come across your phone message. I do appreciate people like
      you and hope that if you do ever come to Verde, you will introduce
      yourself. This business is always an ongoing work in progress. It
      is only with people like you that make it possible for us to iron
      out any on going flaws. Thanks Again

    They got the message! Though “Hatch” and “Oaxaca” and other proper names should be capitalized.

  3. BAB says:

    Wow, Santa Barbara gets Rori’s, Flagstone, and some Crazy
    Good Bread, and Goleta adding a Mc Donald’s. Cummon I’m sure our
    friends in Goleta want some more real food too!! 🙂

  4. Whirl says:

    So maybe the $9 for a taco with sides is a typo?

  5. Gerald Bostock says:

    At least it doesn’t say “manchaca” anymore. Or “caritas.” “Pablano” may be acceptable, but I’ve never seen it before and found only one reference online to the dual spelling.
    This is new on the menu: “chicken breast lay’s atop…”

    I know I’m being mean, but I tried, privately. I still object to the name. It reminds me of pronouncing street name with an “l.” You know, Cabrilo, Castilo and Carilo.

  6. Gerald Bostock says:

    They did it. Oh no, they didn’t! Yes, they did it:

    *Chipolte* Chile Chocolate Truffle Torte


    and this:
    Haberno Creme Brulee

    So, how is the relleno? I would like to hear more about the food, really.

    I’d have to nominate “Me So Hungry” as the most moronic business name I’ve seen in some time.
    It’s not cute, just stupid and, quite frankly, more than a little racist.

    IV news has a restaurant opening soon next to Sorriso Italiano, a salad place? Not too sure about cuisine and next to that on the Giovanni’s side some sort of Chinese restaurant. This is all in the same building as where Sorriso Italiano opened. It also looks like a “Blaze Pizza” is coming to where the Pasta House was and fyi a 7-11 just opened up next to Crushcakes in IV.
