Great as always. Tasting portions are perfect size for those that do not desire a huge meal. One of our favorite places to dine.

Veritas has been my favorite
Veritas has been my favorite place in CS for the last two years. On this visit, my experience was not the best. The service was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was vibrant, warm with excellent music but the food was not up to par. Maybe it was a bad day.

We love Veritas and have been
We love Veritas and have been here a number of times. I had their fresh beet salad with crumbled goat cheese followed by a delicious fish, John Dory served over Israeli couscous and tiny, delicious brussel sprouts.
My husband and his colleague both had "simply grilled sea bass" and loved it.

A local favorite
Veritas is our local favorite. It has the quality food you'd expect in a big city but with smaller city prices and lots of ambiance. The wait staff are knowledgeable and very accommodating--and they remember our special requests on repeat visits. You will find us at Veritas every Saturday for lunch when we are in town--it has become a family tradition.

Foodgasm for the deaf
The food was simply amazing but while live music is nice not in the middle.of the restaurant. We could not hear each other at all and our server was not very attentive. Took way too long to get a hold of him and to ask to move where my father could actually hear us. We were there for my graduation and the first 30 min were awful. And for the amount of food given a bit too pricey.

Our family celebrated the graduation of our son from A&M and this turned out to be the perfect place. Excellent food, wonderful service, nice wine list, and we all had an enjoyable evening. We selected Veritas based on Open Table feedback and it lived up to everything we expected.

Second time as good as the first...
Visiting College Station for my son's graduation from Texas A&M, I celebrated the occasion with my entire family at Veritas. This was the second time we had dined there and the experience was just as good as the first. Living in Dallas I've eaten at a lot of the famous steak restaurants, but the filet at Veritas was, for the second time, the best I've ever eaten. The espresso rub added a unique flavor and the meat was cooked to perfection. Everyone in our party had great things to say about their meal, and the desserts make for a perfect ending. The setting is upscale and quiet, and even though it's hard to find (tucked behind other restaurants) I'll have to find reasons to return to College Station so I can eat at Veritas.

We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant and would return. My only complaint would be that we were seated in the last table before the restrooms and had a lot of traffic. But the food was wonderful, and beautifully presented. We had a very nice dining experience for our anniversary.

I took a friend here for a birthday dinner, and we had some of the best food I've had in College Station. It's not cheap, but it's worth the expense. For starters, we had the spicy tuna roll, which just melted in my mouth. It had raw tuna (not your normal "tuna and spicy mayo" combo), clover sprouts, and finely grated, deep fried potatoes on top. It tasted delectable. For the main course, I ordered the sea bass with sauteed vegetables and miso sauce. The fish was browned on the edges in the mildly sweet soy-based sauce, which was delicious. The vegetables were perfectly cooked. For dessert, we both had the cherry cobbler with homemade vanilla ice cream. The cobbler was excellent.

Love this place
Everytime I visit the College Station area I make a point to have dinner at Veritas! This time however was my favorite visit! Not only do they have a great wine selection and great food! Especially the filets! But when I requested the cheesecake beignets without looking at the dessert menu, my server informed me they were removed from the menu and suggested several other choices. I was very sad that I had been dreaming of this amazing dessert for weeks leading up to my visit. However, imagine my surprise when the server came out with cheesecake beignets for me!! They had gone back to the kitchen and convinced them to make me them even though they were off of the menu! This place continues to be my favorite and I would recommend it!

It was great to celebrate our 37th anniversary with you. Good was awesome along with the service.
5/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I went to celebrate
My wife and I went to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We are both chefs and I can say the the food across the board was outstanding. I had the prix fixe menu, the portions at first seemed small but when I was finished I was stuffed. Presentation was spot on, service was great. We will definately be returning again to eat.

Wonderful Experience - As Usual
I took my husband out to dinner here for his birthday. The food, wine, and desserts were excellent and the service was top notch! Veritas is our "go-to" special occasion place! We had the Crispy signature roll, the New Zealand Lamb, and two desserts. The lamb was cooked perfectly and the adult Ice Cream Sandwich was excellent.

It's about time!!!
I travel to Brazos County several times a year for business. My feeling about the county is that it is in desperate need of an upscale, chef run restaurant. This was my first trip to Veritas and it didn't disappoint. My guests, however, tell me they come every two weeks. The price was a little higher than it should have been and the calamari was a bit bland, but the rest of the food and the wine were excellent. I had the monk fish while my guests had the sable fish and the rib eye. We also had a side order of brussels sprouts (I've never had better), shiitake risotto (the best risotto I've eaten), truffle french fries and a tuna carpaccio. We ordered many wines by the glass as well as an excellent Margaux. I will return.

We were enrolling our son
We were enrolling our son in college and had a special dinner at Veritas. Delightful appetizers, perfectly prepared fish and duck entrees, and appropriate wines were enjoyed. When one wine did not live up to our hopes, the sommelier recommended a perfect replacement. The pistachio and dulce de Leche gelatos were the perfect ending. We decided to make Veritas a family tradition when we visit our son.

Veritas very good
Absolutely everything tastes delicious and small portions are just right

Veritas is a real gem right
Veritas is a real gem right in the middle of College Station, Texas on University Drive. Food is superb and service is great too.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, average service.
The food here was absolutely amazing! The service seemed to be a little off, not bad, just not quick and attentive.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't miss this one
Very creative fusion approach to seafood. Great fresh fish. The sea bass with miso sauce is possibly the best fish dish I have ever had. Truffled mac and cheese? Please!! Never mind that it's tucked away in College Station TX. Live jazz on the weekend. Glasses of wine very reasonably priced. Worth a drive..

As I am allergic to cheese, my dinner was essentially ruined when there was cheese on our side and then what appeared to be cheese on my entree. After taking 5 minutes to flag down our waiter, the entree did not have cheese on it but because of the mistake with the side I just let it sit there till it was cool. My wagyu beef was ok, but certainly not what I expected. I have had wagyu before and I prefer the edges more crispy with the interior pink, as mine was too soft. Overall I will give it another chance.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the food, wine and atmosphere. Great for when you don't mind spending a few extra $$'s.

Lovely MUSIC on Friday nights!
A lovely evening to spend with friends....no yelling over annoying noise. Great music and great service.

This is our second time to
This is our second time to come to Veritas and on this visit our table had the chef's Omakase tasting menu. Each course was balanced, flavorful and well timed.The miso sea bass was a table favorite as was the waygu beef course. Throughout the six courses, our waiter was impeccable. Friendly and out going when asked a question but otherwise unobtrusive. When my husband wanted a recommendation of a wine for the table, the sommelier was prompt, friendly and well informed. If you enjoy dessert, our foursome thought the warm almond cake outstanding. I can highly recommend the Omakase for a leisurely (2 1/2 hour) special dinner in a special place.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always do the four-course and have never been disappointed. Servers are attentive. Wine suggestions, when requested, have been very fine. Hard to beat any of the fish dishes. We always leave feeling what was deliciously prepared was also healthy.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Veritas does it so well.
Veritas knows how to do it well. Great food, unique menu, and nice service.

Chef Tai puts his heart and soul into every dish. Best place in the BCS for high quality food, especially the fish!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
My new favorite in College Station!
This was my third visit to Veritas and once again the food and service was great! Really like the fish preparations, and this time tried the signature sea bass offer which was fabulous. My companion had the filet mignon, which was also very good. Nice wine list and service has been very professional. Will definitely be back!
If you like good food, a great atmosphere, and professional service you will enjoy Veritas!

Outstanding food in a college town
Veritas is widely recognized as the best in College Station, but I would rank it among the best in Texas. My wife ordered Ceasar Salad and scallops. I ordered carpaccio and rib eye. All were expertly prepared and served, especially the scallops. Only negative is it is a bit noisy, especially with a band.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
High point of College Station eats
Portions are modest. Attention to culinary details is substantial. A delightful experience for the taste buds.

It had been a few months since
It had been a few months since our last visit to Veritas and we were delighted to find that both the kitchen and front of house teams were on top form. Sashimi, fish and scallop dishes were excellent -- and the dessert menu had a couple of new (for us) items that we just had to try. They didn't disappoint. :-)
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food! Great Service!
This menu both food and wine was such a surprise!! I had the Wagyu my dad had the Monk Fish, both were phenomenal! Wine list is extensive with a knowledgeable staff!! Our server was very kind and helpful! It was a warm evening so the keep the front covered and closed to block the sun, so it is a little deceiving when you approach the restaurant. But once inside the vibe was fun and inviting! We were in town for the TAMU/ Alabama game and everyone was hospitable and welcoming!
9/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Nice atmosphere and great food!
We had reservations and were seated promptly. Previously waited at the bar which was very comfortable. Our waiter was extremely polite and efficient. Our food was delicious! Great flavor. I really enjoyed the strawberry salad with shrimp. My husband and son had the filet with truffle mac and cheese. Both were great. We will definitely return!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
best food in years
everything was great! husband and I were wanting to go on a special date, one we had not been on this special in at least 10 years and it was better than great! THANKS!

Chef Tai's special world
Not only is Chef Tai the Food Network recent winner of the best food truck in the U.S. But he owns the best restaurant in College Station, Texas. Sort of Asian-French fusion, his spicy tuna sushi is fantastic. We often order his sea bass dinner- always beautifully prepared with a miso i think. Both his beet and strawberry salads are favorites. He also has great beef. We also recommend his lunch plates with soup, sandwich and salad sampler. Each sandwich is unique And delicious. Nice wines too!
We often come for lunch and order his plates of soup sample, half sandwich, half salad

Daddy Daughter date night
What a great place to relax... Quiet but lively atmosphere. Great wine selection to chose from. For Fresh oysters and shashimi there is no place I would rather enjoy an evening.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food and atmosphere! Great for a special occasion or a night out on the town! Steaks and truffle mac&cheese=incredible! Will be returning soon!

Go to place for parents of Aggie
Nice treat for your college student. Nice wine list, good food. Main room is preferable. Back room feels like just that, a back room
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pleasant experience; great service
We treated 4 A&M students to dinner at Veritas and everyone seemed to enjoy the food and the wine. The service was superb; our every need was met. The food was beautifully presented and many of the dishes were excellent. Menu has something for everyone and the steaks and duck were very well prepared. Very good wine menu - only one choice of Reisling but it was German and excellent!! Overall experience was very good.

Veritas = #1 in C-Stat
Loved everything about our dining experience---again. Not sure why this isn't the top rated resto in C-Stat,but if one if making that call based on the quality of the meal, this is your place.

We love Veritas
We discovered this fabulous restaurant about five years ago through a friend. It is our favorite in College Station and we make sure to eat there at least once every game weekend and any other time we visit.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect as always
Stephanie did a great job taking care of us. The fish was excellent, cooked just so. We tried the new dessert, "the fifth", and it was outstanding. The espresso was a bit weak, we prefer it more in line with European standards, but it was still good.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our 2nd time in coming to Veritas. As the first time it was amazing. I had made reservations for my husband and I as a suprise. No special occassion just need some one on one time with my husband to get the romance back. We have been having relationship problems and trying to get the love back. We had the best time talked, listened to eachother, laughed and got the romance back that night. We will deff be beack! Oh yes the food was amazing and the live music which we LOVED!! Thanks so much agian

Great food. If sitting at the Chef's bar, the live music will be right behind you and very intrusive.
