The Farmhouse at Veritas
The menu reflects our passion for the pairing. Every meal is memorable with Chef Andy Shipman. His attention to detail and knowledge of fresh seasonal ingredients straight from local farmers and our very own Farmhouse Garden embody our farm-to-table philosophy. The ambiance of The Farmhouse at Veritas is perfect for a romantic evening, a leisurely group of friends, or your next small event.
The staff is here to make sure every detail exceeds your expectations, from the menu to the memories. No matter what size or what occasion, we invite you to come and see how we can inspire your palate.
Lovely evening away! Great hosts and delicious food.
This is the third time I have eaten there. It was not a good experience. The room was cold. The food was served cold and several ingredients left out of the plates. I would not go back as it was very expensive for a poor experience
This was one of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had. The food was outstanding and the wine pairings were perfect. While the food was incredible, the service was beyond stellar. We highly recommend anyone in the Charlottesville area, whether visiting or residing there, come and enjoy this divine 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.
Lovely place for special occasion. Attention to detail in all ways.
Literally the best food I have ever had, served by nice, knowledgeable staff. I will definitely be back!
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'm not a fan of combining strange ingredients but Chef Andy does an incredible job. Every morsel of every course was delicious. The service was spot on, friendly and professional.
What a dining experience! I loved everything as the attention to detail was outstanding. From the arrival greeting through the last course. The food and wine pairing was fabulous and the service was the best!
I can’t wait to go back!
The chef accommodated my pescatarian diet with some amazing dishes. One of the best meals of our lives, and less expensive than other "luxury" or "high-end" dining.
Great place for a special occasion
The setting was beautiful. The food was delicious. We had a private room set up for our group and it was very elegant. We were very impressed with the service. Would go back again for a special occasion.
This was an outstanding evening. Excellent in every way but probably topped off by the outstanding Seven Hills Filet Mignon steak.
We thought the food was wonderful with great wine pairings for each course. Beautiful setting and attentive staff provided an excellent dining experience.
My fifth visit since July. It’s awesome! Always excellent and exceeds expectations.
Outstanding. Michelin Star quality food and service. Creative, innovative food cooked and presented at an impeccable fine dining level. All dishes have multi level, surprising well integrated nuances with long lasting after tastes.
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.
Wonderful ambiance and dinner
Everything was up to our high expectations. We all agreed that we'll come again.
Enjoyed the evening at the Farmhouse. Already recommended to some friends. Definitely will return!
Beautiful setting w wonderful food creations. The service was exceptional and the wine pairings great too.
The staff was polite and pleasant, they made sure you had everything you needed. The food was excellent and the wine pairing was perfect. The setting was beautiful! Highly recommend the Farmhouse dinner for anyone looking for something special.
Second time dining at the Farmhouse and its still one of my favorites. The food never disappoints, the wait staff are extremely friendly and generous and the ambiance is wonderful. Thank you for always providing us with a memorable meal.
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.
We’ve been going to Farmhouse for several years. It’s an annual tradition for my birthday and my wife’s. It’s well done and spot on. Never disappoints! The standard for dining.
Birthday and Anniversary
Outstanding service and ambiance
Wonderful evening out for our anniversary. Servers very attentive. Food delicious and beautifully prepared
This was another get-away for my husband and I...this was our 5th time and will return again for sure!
Everything was wonderful - however they had a large group when we were there and the service was very slow, although everyone was delightful and apologetic. The food was outstanding and the wine was excellent although more than we would usually have. We will be back hopefully when it is not so busy
Everything was amazing from start to finish! The food and wine pairing was perfect. Flawless! 😊
Wonderful meal in a lovely settings. Each course paired with perfect wine. Respectful of food allergies which was very much appreciated. highly recommend!
Amazing dinner and service.. eclectic selection with wonderful wine pairing and experience
This was our third time at Veritas and they never disappoint! Great location, great wine and food and fabulous service! We will be available again!!
Took my wife for her 40th birthday and she loved it. Service and food were excellent. We go out to eat a lot and will be one of our favorite dinners that we will remember forever.
My friends and I were totally impressed by the professionalism of the staff, the dining experience and the scenic backdrop. Well done, Chef.
