This establishment was perfect for a quiet romantic dinner. The menu was not very large but everything sounded fantastic and whatever we ordered was a party in my mouth. The servers were super friendly and made great recommendations. I wish there were more food options but was very happy with what we did order. The soup was amazing, so was the fish and the dessert. A must stop if you are in OSJ.

Its, one thing to find incredible food and believe me Verde Mesa knocks out of the park. However, finding great food paired with amazing service can be hard to come by. Our food was cooked with pride and passion and it came through in every way from presentation to taste. Most important, we were handled by Paola(our waitress) who had the most welcoming and inviting disposition.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Verde Mesa. This is more of a formal/pricey restaurant, but the cuisine was top notch and probably our best meal in Puerto Rico. Paola was a great server and took care of us throughout the entire meal. I was impressed with how knowledgeable she was about the menu and wine selections. We would visit again.

They produce little miracles in that little kitchen! The flavors are so well thought through, and the food is served with care and attention to detail. Please please please visite Verde Mesa before other Old San Juan choices because it is the BEST.

This restuarant does not take reservations. We arrived about 7 and was told the next table would be about 845. Luckily we decided to wait. We walked around town for slightly over an hour. We were sitted about 815. Our waitress was also Nicole, gave us some great tips. I personaly was not in love with the menus until the chalk board of specials arrived. Everything was well prepare and relatively healthy. My wife had the chickpea curry which she said was the best vegetarian dish in her memory. Smal but interesting wine list.
