Located outside the hubbub of Maplewood Village, Verjus provides an amazing menu and delivers! Quiet atmosphere makes it perfect for couples and business meetings.

My husband took me for a couples night. The food was exceptional, the ambiance was good (not romantic), it seemed to be a place that has regular guests and is frequented by friends and business colleagues. My husband and I were easily the youngest guests; we are in our 30's and we placed everyone else in their 50's/60's. We know... More

Great for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. Everything is delicious and French. Full bar too. Linen tablecloths...a bit of that old world feeling.

We've been to Verjus many times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent - prepared well and always good. The service is also excellent and the restaurant quiet. Highly recommended!

We were here on a Tuesday night. No wait staff because only 2 reservations had been made for the evening. The owner was very attentive and personable. Imagine her surprise when several more diners showed up. The salmon was wonderful! My girlfriend loved her scallops. My girlfriend's mother always told her you could judge a restaurant by their coffee. She... More

To be fair - we dined on a Tuesday night. Only busy table in entire restaurant, very quiet. Owner is pulling of a one man show - greeter, hostess, Barkeeper, waiter ( chef????) all in one. Food is very average and overpriced. Snails were good but tiny portion, duck confit was dry and red cabbage bland. We will not be... More

This restaurant consistently makes the NJ Monthly top 10 restaurants in NJ. I don't get it. The food is ok - I'm always left feeling like it could be better (over cooked fish, under seasoned chicken, etc). The space is large with little ambiance. The one plus is that it does have a liquor license with an affordable wine list

We have been going to Verjus off and on since they opened many years ago. We especially love their Friday night themed dinners which include Shore night, German night, Italian night and others. Friday night Bistro nights are prix fixe, and are a fun break from the regular (somewhat limited but delicious) menu. We also love Friday night Bistro nights... More

We went to Verjus, the green grape juice, for the first, but sure not for the last time! The escargots en cocotte were outstanding! Simply great! Out of this world. No comparison to the regular garlic-butter stuff. The sauce had a subtle acidity to it, perfect with our Sancerre. Duck terrine was very light, almost a mousse. Flank steak with... More

If you like large portions and rustic but flavorful fare this is the place for you. It's not too precious or fussy. Just great food, wonderful decor and comfortable and friendly. Go there!!! I been there several times now and keep bringing friends.
