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!

I went with a group of three couples and we had a wonderful time. The food is very high quality and locally sourced. Everything was absolutely delicious! I did feel that the quantity of wine was too much for me personally, but this is just my preference. I would much prefer 50% wine (less with each plate) and more of a focus on the food. But this is a vineyard, so that is to be expected and I feel more prepared now. As this was my first experience paying this much for a meal, I would rate the value as a 3/5 from a food perspective. I left a little hungry and definitely able to eat more...and it was super expensive. With that said, we had a very fun evening and experience nonetheless. I think I would just prefer a non vineyard meal with a food focus in the future. If you feel similarly, you may want to search for another location.

We visited the Farmhouse at Veritas 5 years ago for our first anniversary and came back this past weekend for our 5th. Both experiences were incredible. The menu was perfect and the wine delicious! The atmosphere is cozy and beautiful. The first time we dined inside next to the fireplace and this time we dined in the garden. Both spots were beautiful. The staff was polite and wonderful. I would highly recommend visiting!

My wife and I have experienced the Veritas Farmhouse dinner on a couple of occasions, and both times it has been incredible! We are vegetarians who enjoy creative foods, and the chefs at Veritas really deliver some unique vegetarian offerings at the fine dining level. The service is first rate, the food and wine pairings are awesome, and the environment can't be beat dining in the vineyard setting.

Absolutely wonderful! A gorgeous farmhouse, small scale, so does not feel like a hotel business but a real countryside experience. If you eat outside, you'll be in an enclosed area with full-length windows, with openings on all sides for when it's warm, and nice white grapes (sort of like an orangerie or garden house) surrounded by vines and tomatoes (you will not be caught if you steal a cherry tomato, I speak from experience!).

There is only one seating, at 6:30. You get served a glass of bubbly when you arrive. Then the four courses described on the menu. The food was great and imaginative. Large piece of filet for main course. The service wonderful and warm (we were the last ones to leave and as we were talking with some residents, the staff baked some cookies for the morning and we got to have a few!)

And the wine was excellent of course, we got all kinds.

They have gorgeous rooms too, so it is worth your while to spend a night. But with a 40 minute scenic drive in the mountains, well worth the visit from Charlottesville too!

First time dining at the Farmhouse at Veritas and we have already made reservations for next weekend when we will be celebrating a birthday. The food and the dining experience exceeded our high expectations given what we had read on Open Table. From the moment we arrived at the beautiful property (greeted with a glass of champagne), the stage was set for a memorable night. The menu was creative, artfully presented and every course was delicious. The staff and the chef (who came to the table for all four courses) couldn't have been nicer or more professional. Arrive on time and make yourself at home. The views from the dining rooms and the gorgeous table centerpiece arrangements on the tables are the icing on the cake.
