Able to book reservation thru open table however restaurant was closed, no message on voicemail at restaurant saying they were closed.
Their voicemail at their phone number said they were open. OpenTable said they were open. Called and listened to the voicemail again afterwards when I saw a notice on their website that they weren't open, and the voicemail clearly said they were. Seems like they just didn't update their website since voicemail and your online reservation service are literally the two most obvious and easy things to change.
But after arranging for a night out, we arrive to find the restaurant closed, no sign no explanation. If you're going to close, you need to change your voicemail and shut down your online reservation system. Not cool.
Dan, we apologize for this mistake. All on us. Thank you for pointing out the voicemail issue and it will be corrected ASAP. We were closing down and with so many aspects to take care of in that process we missed the voicemail. Again, we apologize. Once we reopen we hope to make your visit worthwhile. Would you mind sending your direct contact information to us privately? This way our manager can speak with you personally about your next visit.
Extremely slow service. We were the only customers in the entire restaurant. My meal was obviously done and under the hot lights before they decided to come out and tell my husband that they did not have the tuna to prepare his meal, so consequently my pasta was dried on top and lukewarm in the middle. It was supposed to have crab shrimp and fish in it ...it did have Shrimp and fish however the crab was definitely absent. From the time we ordered a cocktail until the time it arrived on the table was 15 minutes each time that we ordered which is ridiculous considering that we were the only two customers! My husband requested a happy hour menu. He ordered a five dollar cocktail from the happy hour menu. When the bill came we were charged nine dollars for it. When we requested an explanation we were informed that it was entered into the system at 3:52 PM however arrived at our table at 4:10 PM. Interestingly enough the two happy hour appetizers we also ordered at 3:52 PM were charged the correct amount. The restaurant did not offer to adjust the price of the cocktail . As petty as it seems it’s poor customer service. We’ve had bad experiences at this restaurant in the past but have continued to try to give it a second third and fourth chance but this was the end ! We will be driving to the Common Grilll from here on out! We did give the waitress a nice tip because some of this was not her fault. This restaurant has been mismanaged from the start and obviously they still don’t get it!
Good food...good service...enjoy dinner at Veritas . cascades cooktail was fabulous..had 2.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, JoJo. We look forward to crafting another Cascades and meal for you soon.
Excellent wait staff, didn’t rush us through the meal. The food was outstanding. Oysters were sweet and so fresh. What a treat. We’ll be frequenting this establishment again.
Thank you for the kind words. We look forward to serving you again, soon.
Was a gift and we enjoyed the meal and setting very much.
Those serving were very attentive.
We are pleased to be part of a lovely gift. Thank you for the review, Robert.
We went here for a date night and we were absolutely satisfied with our choice. The food and ambience was incredible!
Thank you for the review and for choosing Veritas for your date night.
The atmosphere was wonderful and the martinis were delicious! Everything we tried was amazing! Kudos to the chefs!
Thank you for the kind review. We look forward to serving you again.
Bar was really loud but nice host was able to seat us far from bar. We had Gramma with us and she is very soft spoken. Lovely server, too
Thank you for taking time to leave a review. Prior to opening we worked to mediate the sound issues in the building. It's always good to receive feedback that those measures are working.
Sushi was amazing!! Server was nice but took a long time to get our drinks.
By far the best restaurant in Jackson! As a New Yorker, would 100% recommend this place. It gives off East coast vibes and the food is just as delicious as something you’d find in NYC, but at a much more affordable price!
Food excellent. Service outstanding
Thank you, Vander23.
Amazing. We went for a nice birthday dinner and it was perfect. Quiet, romantic, amazing food and service. A new favorite!
Addy, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are so pleased to hear that we were able to add to your birthday celebration. We look forward to your next visit.
All safety precautions followed. Comfortable. Staff positive and helpful even though masks are somewhat of a challenge in communicating. Food nicely done and very good. Large chicken Caesar salad: chicken very nicely prepared, large tasty croutons, just the right amount of dressing. My companion enjoyed the miso soup and spinach apple salad. A pleasant place for lunch with good food. Thank you Veritas team.
Thank you! We appreciate your business.
We have been here multiple times and it is amazing every time. The timing of the drinks, appetizers, entre, and desert is all timed perfectly. The staff is always friendly and efficient. We love dining here!
Thank you, Bailey. We are pleased to be a part of the Jackson dining experience.
We've been to Veritas several times - the food has always been great, but the service has always been lacking. Not terrible mind you, but just not great. This was going to be our last attempt at Veritas...if the service was not good, we would never come back. Thankfully, it was great. We ate in the bar area, with live music, the service was perfect and the food was great as always. The bartenders were quick with the drinks, so that was a bonus. Definitely going back.
Sean, Thank you for giving us another chance. We appreciate your review and will take it to heart. Our desire to provide exceptional service, remarkable cuisine and enchanting entertainment remains front and center.
Loved the Aquarium. Loved the location.
We always have great food but this time was a little disappointing. Brussels sprouts were so hard you could not cut them.
Great job Jackson
Thank you, KimM.
I ordered a Levant's a Heineken and a Bud light bottle and you had none of the three. My wife went into the bathroom and only one dispenser had soap. My wife ordered hey Martini and we had to send it back because it did not taste good. She ordered another drink and you still charged us for the first one that she only had two sips out of. The martini was ordered with Tito's but you did not have that in stock either. I ordered a salad with thousand island and you did not have that in stock either. For as nice of a restaurant as it was had no bottles of beer in stock bathrooms did not have soap and I was charged for a martini that tasted like rubbing alcohol.
My steak and her salmon were good.
My husband and I now make it a point to come here for our anniversary and Valentine's Day, and to date (3 visits in), we have NEVER been disappointed. The food is always phenomenal (I've had something completely different every time!), and the service... oh the service is just sensational! Let me tell you, if you want to feel like royalty, that's the place you go. Every possible consideration of your experience is taken, from the moment you enter the door, to the table you sit at, to the way your server attends to your needs, right down to the moment you walk out the door. Oh, and make sure to leave room for dessert!
Hi Cara, Thank you for thinking of us for your special occasions! As for dessert? How do you choose?!
Great food and service! Happy hour is a must! Awesome bar area!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Dvan. Cheers!
Giant disappointment. Out of everything, terrible service, poorly cooked food, steak was raw twice, white fish was almost unedible, never saw a manager. Save yourself and avoid.
Hi Randall, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Please look for a private message from Veritas. We'd like an opportunity discuss your dining experience on Saturday and make the necessary changes to improve our food and the dining experience for all our guests.
Place is great. Highly recommend. Most likely the best restaurant in Jackson
Very good food. Service was a tad slow, but this is not a place I would want to rush. Pricey menu but the food is excellent.
Thank you, Mike.
Very slow service and the food is not what we expected.
Service was great and the food was delicious! Very nice atmosphere for a Saturday night date.
Thank you for joining us for date night, Stephanie. Those times are precious, more so now, and we strive to honor them.
They were very accommodating since we got there early and actually were able to seat us. We enjoyed the happy hour and then ordered our food. Awesome wait staff and the food was delicious. Extras cost so pay attention but had a wonderful time.
We have been to Veritas perhaps 6-7 times, and there were some nights when the food was wonderful but the service was really poor. Then we had decent service and just mostly good food a few times. My husband has found the Ancho Pork Tenderloin never fails to be delicious and I have enjoyed the Soy Ahi Tuna a few times. This time I had Salmon and it was very good. We love to split the Chocolate Pot De Creme - so rich for chocolate lovers. But best of all, the service was wonderful - everything we ordered was delivered, our server checked on our drinks and made sure we always had what we wanted/needed. They have really improved!
Thank you for your continued business, Kaye. Mmmmm, that Pot De Creme. A definite win for the chocolate lover!
Happy Anniversary! Honored that we could be a part of the celebration.
Service was great however the food and drinks were not good I will more than likely not returning
Our waiter was fabulous.. Food very good. Nice atmosphere. Good drinks.
Would come back again. .
Thank you for dining with us and taking the time to leave a review.
Steak and whitefish were delicious. And that’s what helped us tolerate terrible mistakes by our server, not honoring our reservation location, and miscalculating our final bill. Dinner took two hours.
I usually don’t write reviews but this place was absolutely amazing. Food was fantastic drinks was perfect. It was a great dinner date with no kids for once. Planning on going back again n few weeks
Got there and was seated right away. Once we got to the table we were served warm water and bread. 5 minutes later our waitress Emily showed up. We asked for a sushi menu and ordered our drinks. We waited another 15 minutes and we never received our sushi menu nor our drinks. We were celebrating our 9 year anniversary and we both were excited to be there. But we ended walking out because, no place is worth waiting 20 minutes for a menu or a drink. Unfortunately we will not be returning!
Excellent food and service. Our first time at Veritas and we enjoyed it very much. We ate outside and it worked out really well. Food was delicious and at a moderate price.
Wonderful food well portioned was not picky and informed the wait staff to let the chef have fun with the meal, and i was very pleased and very excited with what came back.
We enjoy supporting Veritas but the service continues to be slow and not fully trained. This will impact future visits and recommendations to friends and family.
This was rather disappointing. My first and second choice of fish entrees was not available and I ordered the skate which was overcooked. We elected to be seated outside and spent some time battling the invasion of flying ants.
Not a pleasant evening but next time we will don our face coverings and venture towards an inside table.Should also mention that the server, Rita was excellent , so it wasn’t a total disaster.
Went there for the first time for our anniversary. Everything was perfect. Best Oyster's in this area for sure. Creative dishes and excellent service.
