    A bit more training for the servers on fine dining would assist seasoned diners, but the servers are pleasant, wich is most important. Dial back some seasoning to more subtle accents rather than overpowering the vegetable, fish, or meat. But after blending the dish I was able to counter balance.

    The service was very nice & accommodating. The trout was a bit salty - I always feel when I taste the salt over the flavor of the fish it is too much

    Food has always been excellent. Steaks done at correct temperature, Salmon prepared to temperature requested as well. Our consistent problem is the incredibly slow drink service. Takes 20 minutes plus to get a cocktail. Not a specialty, just a vodka rocks. Our table also ordered a bottle of wine. Took 30 minutes. It’s the reason I rarely go there. NOT the server’s fault, it’s the bar.

    My husband and I were celebrating his birthday, and Veritas didn't dissapoint! Our dining experience was outstanding! Every dish served was absolutely delicious! We started with drinks which were very good, and the house bread and butter is also tasty. We tried the Atomic Shrimp Roll sushi- 10/10- it has a great smokiness that really takes it over the top. The Wood Grilled Prime Steak Skewers- 10/10, a bowl of seasonal soup which was Cauliflower 10/10 the consistency and flavor was amazing! We shared the Blackened Chicken Tortellini 10/10 the flavor from sauce combined with seasonings from the chicken 😋 Shout out to Jacob, he took great care of us with his recommendations as well as being attentive to our dining experience. We did travel from out of state to try this restaurant, and we plan to come back soon!!!!!

    I went here for my birthday dinner and I would not recommend this at all to anyone . Of course people taste buds aren’t the same but the food was gross ! And highly over priced. The lobster for my Alfredo tasted like they grabbed it out the ocean and just threw it on my plate . All of my guests had a horrible experience with their food as well !! The waitress was nice but could’ve done a better job with serving us . the lady at the front was very nice and helped me walk to the table because I had heels on . But overall I wouldn’t dine here again even if it was the last place on earth to eat at .

    Sat there for hours mostly waiting. Not enough wait staff to properly service the customers which is very irritating. Our waiter was very nice but could not handle the 3 large tables he had to service all by himself. No one helped him at all. Appetizers and drinks were very slow to arrive. Three of the appetizers ordered never arrived at all and we had them removed from the bill. We got very tired of waiting and waiting. Food was good but I will never book another special occasion dinner here. Lack of staff really ruins everything which is the management's fault. Overall not impressed and the restaurant didn't live up to our expectations. Won't return.

    very good pasta dishes. We had two dinners, and added a salad. No drinks. each had a bread roll. with a 22% tip it was 86$k. Very expensive for a modest meal.... If you are well off, and trying to impress someone, perhaps go there. The are trying to be an upper class place in Jackson.

    I ordered my filet medium rare and it came out well done. The waitress was not friendly when I asked for another steak. It took a very long time for my medium rare steak to come out and then I basically had to rush to eat it to make sure we were able to get upstairs in time for the show. The food was overpriced and the service was mediocre to say the least.

    We ordered two entrees, both with Filet Medium. One was over well done, the other was technically medium but had been in the window way too long and was very dry. Service was okay, comped the well done filet. Not the type of restaurant where I would order a $50 steak again.

    Overall it was a good dinner. Service was a little slow. The waitress seemed to disappear a lot. Plus it was kind of weird that they were all out of the seasonal cocktails in the middle of the holiday season. Plus they need to train the waitstaff on telling the table the specials.

    Excellent restaurant. The service was great, with the waitress being very attendant and knowledgeable about the menu. The New York Strip steak was prepared to just the right doneness, was seasoned well, and had a proper crust on it. The French Onion soup was great. Cheese was melted and had a good consistency, not a glob that was hard to take a spoonful of, and had a good amount of onions so that you don't end up with just broth at the end. The environment in the restaurant was good with the live music being played, but no overpowering so that you could have a conversation with the person across the table. Overall, a great experience.

    I took my wife here for an out of town dinner and show date. You will not be disappointed! Every single moment was perfect. From the welcoming at the hostess stand to the excellent desert, it was truly amazing! I also must mention the show we seen. Absolutely mind blowing magic that kept us on the edge of our seats the entire time! I’m so glad we had the opportunity to experience this wonderful event. We will definitely be returning with friends so they can also experience this amazing experience! Thank you Veritas 🥰

    Menu used to be so much better. Lunch offering was sandwiches or salad. Nothing creative. Sandwiches were ok but nothing I couldn't get at deli. Waitress was unpleasant and seemed bothered. Unfortunate and disappointing since I have been previously very pleased with my experience here.

    Shared crab cake appetizer and truffle fries. Both were very good and they are consistently. Service slower than usual, d/t large group upstairs and staff still learning. Hostess did check on us and thanked us for our feedback. We believe Veritas wants to have consistently good service. This was an “off” night.

    Looking for nice restaurant after vacationing in the area during the week. Downtown Jackson was hopping due to the monthly car show on the main street. The waiter seemed a bit inexperienced and forgetful, he had to check on a lot of items we questioned him on. Not attentive since it was a busy evening, fortunately other staff refilled glasses and checked on us. We had a salmon roll and fish for dinner. All the food was good. My husband did order the walleye sauteed, but it came out with grill marks? He said it tasted fine though. I had the trout with mustard sauce, very good!

    Early dining before Friday night event. Sushi. Was excellent, esp the atomic shrimp sushi. Tempura Shrimp was good however only 2 of 8 pieces had tempura shrimp. A filling and satisfying meal to start our evening. 4 star rather than 5 because wines (rose’ feature and Pinot Grigio by the glass were just ok. Nothing special. Server, Jeffery, was helpful, attentive and customer friendly. Created a lovely takeout tray for leftover sushi to transport home. Veritas consistency is improving. Staff are friendly and work hard to deliver best in service. They reflect our community to those traveling to eat at Veritas so are important ambassadors for Jackson.

    Dinner was good! Atmosphere is great-a bit swanky & upscale; very warm & comfortable. I never felt rushed to leave. There was live music the night we went. The kind gentleman taking care of us was friendly & polite…hooked us up with some delicious asparagus in a gouda cream sauce 🙂 Soft drink refills were slow coming (we had to flag down other employees & ask for more iced tea & water several times) and our food order came out mixed up/prepared wrong. Food issues were quickly resolved. Wine recommendations were good 🙂 I would recommended Veritas for a fun, nice date night.

    We’ve never had a Buffet here, so possibly my opinion is skewed due to the fact that I am used to really great meals. There were many open tables, yet we were seated as a party of five at a booth. I asked if we could have a table and was told no. This made it very difficult because everyone was eating at different rates and everyone had to get up and down multiple times to let people out of the booth, including my 86-year-old mother. The waffles were wonderful and the omelette station was wonderful, most of the other foods were just OK. Not terrible, but not the level that I’m used to at Veritas. Our reservation was at 1:30 and by the time we got to desserts, there was nothing left, but one type of cupcake and one cookie. Overall, I don’t think I would return for any type of Buffet serving.
