They were very accommodating: the ceremony ended earlier than expected and Vera Mae allowed our party of 6 to come in earlier than our reserved time. The dinner rolls were exceptional, we asked for a second basket. The pork shank my DH ordered was well prepared and approved by all who sampled from his plate. My daughter's Ravioli Florentine was delicious! The other 2 daughters shared a beef dish that they raved about. The chocolate mousse desserts was delicious. Wait staff was attentive.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest consistently excellentBest consistently excellent fine dining in Muncie. MyFirst choice whenever I'm in town.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat LunchMy first lunch experience at Vera Mae's lived up to the hype. Our server was in his last day of training so there were a couple of minor glitches. But nothing that detracted from the experience. Everyone at my table of 6 seemed to really enjoy their selections. The red skin potato salad was a delight. My ham sandwich with mustard green slaw was well balanced and tasty. I will be back!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSo, this was my first timeSo, this was my first time going to a 'bistro,' as it were, so I couldn't tell you if this was good as far as bistros go. What I can say is that this was, all around, a grand dining experience. My friend and I found no shortage of interesting things to try, and I know that she loved her dish. I myself had the New York Strip, and while it was a little more well done than I like, it didn't detract from the overall flavor. Seeing old teachers enjoying the food certainly helped the cause as well.
If I have one complaint, it is that the service was a bit slower than I would have hoped for. This was more the kitchen, I think, as our server was very attentive.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here the other nightWent here the other night with my girlfriend for prom. I was expecting a little restaurant with average food, but turned out that it was an amazing place with such a great expereance. It was perfect for a romantic dinner. They had a great atmosphere and the servers were very nice.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find in MuncieI found this downtown restaurant on a Tripadvisor review, rated #1 in Muncie. Since I was going to be in town for a concert at Ball State, I made a reservation. Although I was alone and I don't drink (= no big tip), my waiter Caleb was excellent. He recommended the Raspberry Brie Chicken as a house specialty, and I couldn't have been more pleased with my meal... and the service. Caleb even helped me with parking suggestions for the campus, which I appreciated. I had thought of going back for dessert after the concert but since I was driving back to Cincinnati the same night, I am saving that for next time. I was seated in the bar area which was a little noisy, but not too bad.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMReally great food, good atmosphere,Really great food, good atmosphere, loved the pianist, loved the decor3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect For Our Anniversary!Everything was wonderful beginning with our "special" greeting at the door, continuing with great service and recommendations from our fabulous waiter, Dante who timed our dinners perfectly so we never felt rushed. Highly recommend the French onion soup dripping with cheese so thick that it is served with scissors! We started with the mussels as our appetizer and dined on the perfectly prepared lamb and raspberry chicken which neither of us could finish. We were too stuffed for dessert but Dante boxed up a our desserts along with our leftovers to enjoy at home later.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
