Court House Cafe

Continuing the tradition of the Court House Cafe circa 1901, Verve is your landmark 24 year bistro of excellence. Currently holding the title of Best Bar in New Jersey. We are situated in the heart of downtown Somerville, NJ. Verve serves the best in French bistro fare and craft cocktails. The service at Verve is individual, professional, and above all, friendly.

Our provincial country style is grounded with slow cooked flavors, presenting a creatively prepared dish for every palette. To enhance your experience, we offer carefully selected bistro wines from our cellar, European and domestic beers and fashionable martinis and cocktails.

We look forward to serving you soon and strive to create a comfortable and elegant experience for your guests, whether you are dining for two or hosting your private party gatherings.

Verve has earned both national and statewide recognition, first when Verve mixologist, N.Bryan Mack demonstrated his cocktail live on the Event floor at the Star of the Bar Mixology Competition International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event 2014, and again as a finalist in NJ.com's Best Bars Competition in 2015.
