This was a unexpected gem of a dining experience we had not anticipated. The moment we entered the Farmhouse, we were greeted with friendly greetings and a welcome glass of champagne and made to feel that we were in for a treat. The outside dining area was immaculate and allowed for a walk around the farm property and vineyards, before seating for the meal. Each course was delivered with a professional description and everything rivaled the best dishes we have enjoyed in years. Service was 5 Star, which maintained par with the quality of the food. The wine pairings perfectly suited each course. Nice touch to have the chef come out after the meal to inquire as to any questions we had about the wonderful meal we had just enjoyed. Kudos to the servers and the kitchen. What every fine restaurant should strive to be.

The food was impeccable! Very creative, innovative, interesting and best of all delicious! And the service as well—tasteful, unintrusive, accommodating, perfectly timed. We enjoyed all of our wines-beautifully paired! 2nd paired meal here this year and I’m already looking forward to the next special occasion. The grounds were so lovely too. We took a million pictures-lol. My Mom and sister were Very impressed. We loved the announcing of each course and also the end of the meal q&a with the chef. The only thing that didn’t quite fit was the gel candy served with the check. But you can easily not eat that. Final thought-spectacular evening!

We were greeted with a featured sparkling wine from the Vineyard , and walked to our dining area. We met another couple from Northern Virginia , the four of us , two elegantly set tables with ample social distancing measures in place. The staff was so attentive and accommodating . We absolutely wanted for nothing . The food was amazing , all courses served with Veritas wine . Introductions were made for each course and the wines were talked about , adding to the over all flavor of the evening . If we could give higher than 5 stars we certainly would ! Will certainly be back !

We went to the Farmhouse at Veritas to celebrate a belated birthday. We could not have asked for more beautiful weather, but even more than that, the setting, the food, the wine and the service were outstanding. It was a wonderful way to mark a new decade, and we hope we’ll find another reason to come back soon!

Everything about the wine pairing dinner was perfect - ambiance, food, service and of course the wine! It was a great dinner that we loved and the pairings couldn't be any better picked. Super happy with all of it, especially since I am gluten-free and needed to have specific accommodations.

Overall experience was outstanding. Table spacing made us comfortable about avoiding covid-19 while dining. The facility is extremely pleasing. Our only complaint is that the table was a bit small for the amount of tableware and as the used glassware accumulated, it was not removed before the next wine was served. I would recommend dining at the Veritas Farmhouse to the most demanding diner.

What a lovely late summer evening on the vineyard. We were met with a gracious staff and a glass of bubbly Prosecco. We were able to peruse the lovely grounds, vineyard, and B&B period common rooms. Tables have ample room to abide by covid standards. Each course was artistically presented, explained by staff and the wine chosen to accompany it. This was such a delight. Every sauce increased the flavors of the course. Our favorites were the scallop over a creamed carrot sauce and the filet mignon accompanied by a red pepper risotto. It has been decades since we had such perfection in a fillet. We found out Seven Hills is the supplier. This was a joyous experience which makes you yearn for more gourmet dining.

Had the wine paired dinner in the garden house for my birthday. Service and food was amazing! Everyone took precautions which made me feel comfortable for the first time in ages.

The food was excellent and they took into account allergies and preferences. The cherry pistachio bombe was one of the best things I’ve eaten!

In the new world of dining out, this is an outstanding operation. Keeping distance while having beautiful views and impeccable service and the most engaging food. The wine pairing of course is an added plus. Have been a regular here since they opened the restaurant and appreciate it even more given the challenges of serving in these times.

Absolutely beautiful location and ambiance! Given COVID-19, we chose to sit outside under weather-controlled veranda -- fresh cut and vased flowers, tea lights, views of the vineyards were all incredible touches.

The food was okay, not remarkable, and kind of reminded us of very good wedding food. For the price ($85/pp) you get 4 courses, 4 wine pairings, and a welcome glass of champagne.

We'd go back for the location and setting alone.

We had dinner at The Farmhouse for my 30th birthday with a small group of friends. The service was absolutely 5-star and they went above and beyond throughout the evening. The food, however, left a lot to be desired. The second course was found inedible by our entire table. The third course was phenomenal, but it was the only course that the entire table really enjoyed. It was not a quantity issue, more of a quality.

Wine pairings with each of four courses enhanced the flavors of both the food and the wine. We didn’t eat; rather we dined and were pampered throughout by the wait staff and the chef who came out to the dining room to respond to questions from the diners. Excellent all the way round for a special evening.
