What a magical experience! The location was stunning, the food was incredible, the pairings were perfect, but the intimate and attentive service that we got from the staff was what really made our dinner at The Farmhouse memorable. It was also a great value--a premium experience, to be sure, but worth it for everything being so perfect from start to finish!

Would we recommend The Farmhouse to a friend? Well ... maybe. The ambiance was astonishing, the wines outstanding, but the food ... not so much. This was a tasting menu, but we left hungry. First course was a small square of rockfish, perfectly seasoned but topped with a precious strawberry foam which did not seem to belong. Second course was a cipher indeed. A small squirt of a cheesy substance topped with 5 infinitely thin slices of cucumber topped by a round dry piece of farro bread. ?? Next course was a piece of beef which while tasty, was chewy, and small. Dessert was a smoked coconut panna cotta which was overwhelmed with too much smoke. It was an ambitious menu but missed the mark, but did deliver what was promised ... only a taste.

My husband and I ate here to celebrate our 10th anniversary. There were many couples celebrating anniversaries as well. This is a fantastic dining option if you are staying in or near the VA wine country. The food is unique and the wine is great. I gave the food 4 stars because it was unique, but at times not executed perfectly. I believe it would be very hard to get 5 stars because of the whole model in which this dining experience is built on. There is one seating time, all of the tables (~40 people) sit down at once for dinner. The menu is set. It is kind of like eating at a wedding or banquet. For example, our fish was a little overcooked, our flank steak was served at room temperature. It is incredibly hard to cook for this many people all at the same time and serve at the same time. As long as you go into the meal understanding that, then you will (likely) be happy with the meal. The service was great. The wine pours were generous. I felt like it was worth the money we spent on the meal.

This is a very special place! The food was amazing and the garden s.etting (while warm--no AC, just fans) was just beautiful. Plus they were great about accommodating my food allergies (gluten and strawberries). They even put a little candle in my dessert because it was my birthday :) Highly recommend!

My husband and I had dinner here to celebrate our anniversary. We could not have asked for a better experience to celebrate a special occasion. Everything from the service, the presentation, the ambience, and the amazing food was wonderful. The wines were great too, and they are more than happy to give you refills of any that you would like. The offer of coffee at the end of the meal was another nice touch. Yes it is expensive, but for the experience and food you are receiving it is an amazing value.

We had Ana maxim time from the second we steeped into The Farmhouse and received our sparkling wine, to the last sip of the evening. The food was amazing and the wine pairings were great. The staff were very accommodating and also very knowledgeable about the food and wine. We would definitely recommend it!

We had an absolutely fantastic 25th wedding anniversary dinner! The service was outstanding, the food was excellent. We had a beautiful outdoor dining experience with views of the vineyards and the mountains – the weather was perfect. They even personalized our menu which was printed. Each course was served and announced with the food presentation and wine pairings. We definitely recommend this special experience.

The Farmhouse at Veritas is just lovely. This was our fourth visit but the first when they were serving in their glassed-in gazebo. The garden setting was beautiful. As always the food and Veritas wine pairings were delicious...and the service was perfect. It is a set menu...all diners are served at the same time The first two courses are always creative and eclectic...the main course is a traditional meat course and the dessert in always a special sweet creation.
It makes for a special evening...and I can’t wait to go again.

Chef Andy is gifted. The breakfast he prepared each day equaled the cost of the room. The dinner featured beef filet and exceeded the best DC steakhouse. Outstanding value for dollar. Not to mention the paired Veritas wines. It is always on our bucket list

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.
