Verything was as we hoped! The food, the atmosphere, the frank Sinatra music and Angel as our server. Perfect evening!
We loved the food preparation by Chef Colman ...very carefully prepared. The wines to complement each course were carefully selected too!!many unique touches. Loved eating in the garden room too! Outside atmosphere.

We were staying at the Farmhouse Friday and Saturday night and decided to have dinner their our first night. It was amazing. Chef Andy was so creative in his menu, everything was delicious! My husband can’t stop talking about it. We enjoyed all our meals at The Farmhouse - the staff and service were impeccable, attentive, friendly. We’ll be back, for sure!

The Farmhouse at Veritas is a wonderful B&B with an excellent pair of chefs. When opting for the dinner staying at the B&B is a no-brainer. There is a happy hour to sample the Veritas wines, then champaign before dinner. With dinner including wine pairings, one is greatful to be able to just fall into bed. Yes, it is pricey but it is well worth it.

We could not possible have had a better experience. The food was incredible, the environment is just so gorgeous (we were so cozy inside by the fire on a snowy evening), and the service was perfect. From the minute we arrived we began planning our next trip. I cannot more highly recommend an evening at The Farmhouse.

The 4 course wine pairing meal prepared by the Chefs at Veritas made for a perfect evening. The setting was their enclosed sunroom with dim lighting and tea candles and a small vase of tulips on the flower. The wine was flowing and perfectly paired for each course and the courses were so thoughtfully crafted and the perfect portions.. it was literally a perfect night!

Thanks for this experience- we'll be back!

This was our first time dining at The Farmhouse and we'll be back. We have been to Veritas a few times but it has been many years since we did a wine tasting. The wines paired with the dinner courses were excellent. The food was impressive, delicious, beautifully plated and fresh with vibrant flavors. The service was smooth and unobtrusive. And the setting really made you feel like you were getting away for a few hour mini-vacation. We had a cozy table by the fire and could just relax and enjoy. And on top of it all, it was a great value for a top notch dining experience.

Although my husband comes from a restaurant family background and prefers to dine at home, he gave The Farmhouse at Veritas a 5 star rating in all categories when we celebrated his birthday there this week. The wine pairings with each course were perfect, the food was excellent, the service, impeccable, and the vineyard setting was beautiful.

The setting is an old farmhouse with the downstairs rooms converted into dining areas. Our dining room had a large table for my group (10), and 2 tables set for up to 4 each. There was another room set up with a single table for 8. There may have been other areas, but I don't think so. The service was great and all the food was brought in at one time. The menu is pre-selected, so you don't get to customize your plate. We were served a sparkling wine when we arrived, and then four courses each with a paired wine. I am not a wine connoisseur by any means, but they were all delicious. Everyone enjoyed the selection tremendously. The highlight of the meal was the Filet Mignon, which was cooked to perfection; maybe the best steak I have ever eaten. I also enjoyed the desert wine, the Othello 2016. It made a tasty end to the meal, and a lovely evening.

Overall good food and wines. Main dish could have arrived warmer. It appears they wanted everyone to get their food at the same time, this may have created the situation where some things were out mainfor a few extra minutes before being served. I thought the main dish and the soup were very good. The desert was not the highlight.

We couldn't have asked for more! We had a group of 10 from our firm there on an annual Christmas Dinner Retreat and the staff and chef executed our dinner beautifully! The wines were some of the best Virginia wines I've ever had, and they poured as generously as we asked. The tasting menu was perfectly designed (the only exception was dessert... which felt a bit like a gelatinous fruit rollup inside of a chocolate shell...) and left tummies full and happy. The ambiance was exquisite with the gorgeous table settings, the fireplace gently warming the room, the beautiful statuary and the jazz music playing softly in the background. Sublime!
