    Verde seems to think they are a dance club now. We have been going there for years and love the food and used to love the atmosphere. The last couple of times that we have been there on a Thursday evening the music was so loud that we had a hard time hearing each other. We asked them to please turn down the music and was told that "management" wouldn't let them. So ridiculous! Also, the music is obnoxious!

    I'm not sure how this place gets such high ratings. I live nearby and have been 2x now and it always feels just like an "ok" experience. Food = mostly bland; even the french fries couldn't save the burrito. I could barely taste any veggies and the shrimp were 5/10. The corn dip app was decent though. The beans by themselves were the most flavorful part. Everything is FRIED. Why? Service = just meh. It took 10 minutes to get a water and my girlfriend asked "is anyone coming to help us?" ...not a great start to a date. The place is small so even when busy not demanding to a server. (Former server here). The hostess was very helpful in finding us a good table though. Prices = WAY TOO HIGH. I got a shrimp burrito with veggies and it was $25 without tax. And it came with French fries. What? Luckily we had a gift card. This place is not worth the price. Not "authentic". But go pay $65 for 2 people and no drinks if you like the decor and want-to-be-seen vibe. Just don't go for the food or the service.

We had the bacon wrapped jalapeño with cream cheese, the BEST we ever had , everyone thought the same 🤤The lamb chops were delicious, with the grilled squash and asparagus, the carnitas were the tenderist hubby as ever had and I agreed! The staff are so friendly makes you want to come back for the relaxed feeling.The Chef is the absolute BEST!

    Our meal was delicious and all the server staff we came into contact with (many) were EXTREMELY courteous and professional. Music (literally had a DJ) was louder than we remembered and not quite our taste but that’s not a criticism. Will try to find quieter nights to return.

    Despite numerous positive reviews, our recent visit to this restaurant, with my wife and a couple visiting us from out of town, was nothing short of torture. Moments after being seated, a mariachi band began playing at an intolerably loud volume, a few feet from our table. Don’t confuse this with the enjoyable ambiance of live jazz with a piano and cello, but rather a blaring trumpet assault that was ear-piercing and relentless. We were unable to converse, and like many around us who were covering their ears and shaking their heads in dismay, we quickly developed headaches. Those who had finished eating quickly departed. When I sought the manager's assistance at 6:10 PM, hoping for a quieter table on this busy Saturday night, I was met with a lack of viable solutions. I was told the band would cease playing by 6:30 PM. Yet, as we covered our ears, enduring 20 more minutes of this auditory onslaught, the band continued well past the promised time. Repeated assurances that each song would be the last proved false as the band played three additional songs. In light of this unbearable experience, we expressed to our server that a reduction in our bill was warranted. She empathized with our situation, acknowledging the extreme volume. She left and quickly returned saying she talked to the owner and that we were going to be taken care of. However, the so-called 'care' from the owner materialized as a $10 discount on the bill, a gesture that was more insulting than compensatory. For the record, they could have comped the entire bill and given us a $500 gift card, and still, nobody in our group would agree to go through that experience again. This evening made a timeshare presentation seem like enjoyable entertainment! Anyway, as much as I wanted to go ten rounds with the owner, we decided to leave and try to salvage the night with our friends. While the food was passable, it was overshadowed by the abysmal service, and the sheer auditory torture of the night.

    Our night at Verde at Ironworks was fantastic! We had a reservation for 8 pm with a group of 4, and the check-in process was fun and interactive. The DJ added a great vibe to the already upbeat atmosphere, making the environment enjoyable. Throughout the evening, the service was top-notch; every staff member we encountered was friendly and engaging, always with a smile. The food was delicious, and the overall experience was exceptional. Kudos to Verde for making our night memorable!

    Verde is The Best! You may be a little dubious when you see the prices as they are a bit higher than other Mexican restaurants. But those prices are totally justified in the quality of the food, the tasty drinks, and the wonderful service. We've never had a bad experience there-it's always delightful. It's nice as a couple and also good for groups.

    Verde at Ironworks is one of my very favorite restaurants for Mexican food. The food is amazing and the ambiance is exceptional! We started with the jalapeño margaritas and enjoyed the complimentary warm chips and flavorful salsa, and ordered the guacamole as well. For entrees we ordered fajitas, one shrimp and one with chicken. They come with 3 warm street -size tortillas. I do with the tortillas would be the medium size ones. The sides for the fajitas include rice, refried beans, pico, guacamole, and sour cream. Whenever we are in the Keystone area, we always plan for a meal at Verde’s by Ironworks! (When we are in downtown Indianapolis, Nada can’t be beat! I love Nada’strio of salsas!)
