One of the best steaks I have ever had! Loved the truffle mashed potatoes. The lobster and scallops were a bit over seasoned as we like to taste the seafood. I would just request less seasoning next time. Perfect dinner for two!

We visited for my birthday and elected to sit outside and they had a folk singer playing when we arrived around 5:45, he was outstanding and played and sang well, was a good entertainer.
only 1 waiter for about 8 tables so service was good but a little slow.
Bread is always good, Lobster bisque is a must have.
our table ordered the Ocean Angel Hair (loved it) Blackened Chicken Tortellini (he loved it) Herb marinated chicken, wife loved it.

now the dessert, the vanilla cheesecake with Bourbon/Carmel sauce is simply the best cheesecake.

This place is an absolute jewel. If you are looking for freshly prepared, thoughtfully sourced seafood, and steaks that are butchered on site, and specially aged, you need to go here. It’s worth mentioning that the carrot cake is to die for, I promise you’ll never get it better anywhere else. I honestly think this is one of the best restaurants outside of the Detroit metro area. They put enormous effort into everything they do and it shows. Cannot recommend it enough.

We visited Veritas for my birthday, it was our first visit, and our entire experience can be summed up in one word: DELIGHTFUL. The service was terrific, the food was fantastic, and the ambiance was awesome.

We lived in Ann Arbor for decades before moving to the Irish Hills, and we loved the best restaurants Ann Arbor has to offer. Veritas would fit right in as one of its top venues.

We are already making plans to bring friends and family for another delightful experience.

The server was very inexperienced and hopefully just new. He had to ask "someone" almost every single question about the food we had. He was extremely slow getting waters and drinks to the table. The filet was $46 and it was the driest, saddest steak I have ever had. The meat had no flavor. I am certain the potatoes were frozen and thawed for the meal. The choice of sides was very weak for a steak house. I wanted to love the restaurant but I that was very expensive and not worth $20.

I was there for their Mother's Day brunch special. They were out of food that I wanted to have. I wish they would have had enough food in stock for the day. I hastily ordered something that I didn't really want. I didn't realize that it came with eggs, which I don't care for. I looked up the item online after I left, just to see if it came eggs (and it did) and I saw that it was supposed to come with toast, which mine didn't come with toast. Overall it was good but I was bummed that I didn't get something that I really wanted and then to find out after the fact that my meal was missing food.
