Verve / The Menu

Our menu is globally influenced with a New American feel to our food. We love local and use as many locally sourced products as we can to create our menu.

Food and Drink, Elevated.

Our menu is globally influenced with a New American feel to our food. We love local and use as many locally sourced products as we can to create our menu. Our hope is that our menu inspires you to reach across the table. We have created a menu designed around shared plates, creating community and the chance to try new dishes.

Dishes can be eaten individually or with a group. If two people are eating together expect to order 2-4 plates. We want you to eat food at its freshest so we serve dishes as they are ready. We take an equal amount of pride in our drinks. We of course brew our non-alcoholic kombucha on site but that’s not all we offer.

From serving our signature kombucha cocktails, classic cocktails, to offering domestic beer to Iowa craft beers we think there is something for everyone.
