    Food was very good! Drinks and variety were also very good! Service was a little slow. Waited a bit after being seated before a waiter came to greet us. Waited again at the end of the meal to get the bill. Otherwise, the waiter was very attentive, just lacking at the beginning and the end. Very nice experience. We would go back.

    Their Easter brunch was a huge success so we went for Mother’s Day brunch and it was ok. One hour and half time limit for buffet is just not cool and also not family friendly. This time is just a regular Sunday brunch after a long while. Food sucks. They pulled steamed mussels, salmon was dry, waffle was not freshly made, sushi looks delightful but the rice was dry and hard. Hardly anyone was there. And they charge the same $32 for it, same as the glamorous Easter brunch. What a waste of money.

    VeritasResponded on November 1, 2022Hi Maggie. We value your feedback and will make sure that we follow up with our staff to ensure fresh and delicious food each and every brunch we offer, major holiday or not. We have reached out to you directly and hope to hear from you soon.

    I was very excited for date night, David Martin and dinner. The bartender upstairs at the show was not very helpful when asking for drinks. Asked for a rum and pepsi and she said she didn't have rum (but was on the menu). No lemonade, no sweet and sour, no cranberry, no limes, no lemons . So I got a vodka and club soda and went down to the main bar for mix and lime. Show, was amazing. We definitely enjoyed ourselves. Dinner was exciting, beautiful atmosphere and loved the one man band. Was very unsatisfied with my order. Asked for a medium steak and it cam out almost well done. They comped the meal made me a new one and had it to go. Got home and they gave me my husband's meal and not mine. Soooo, I was still hungry, didn't get my meal and ate something at the house. Oh well......on to another date night somewhere else. However, most of the people we came in contact with there, were so polite and good service overall.

    VeritasResponded on October 31, 2022Hi Carrie. We appreciate your review of Veritas and Drinks & Deceptions. The bar upstairs is meant to be limited due to space and the number of guests therefore it doesn't carry a full bar menu. We will look into having additional mixers and garnishes in the future. We do apologize for the mix up regarding your meal. We have reached out directly to follow up with you and look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Veritas is an excellent choice for a night out. First the service is excellent. The staff is very friendly. The food is very good. They always offer something new and unique. The best part was the choice in entertainment. Marcus and Tiffany Shelton‘s performance was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes.

    The waiter was new but helpful and courteous. The food was just okay. My husband ordered rainbow trout and got salmon. Apparently the chef insisted it was trout. The taste was good. Filet was also good. Tortellini with chicken was dry and not exactly edible. Asian / chop salad was decent. Broccoli side dish was very charred. Polenta was runny. We are hoping that this was an off night for the restaurant because we have heard great things.

    VeritasResponded on October 24, 2022Hi Adrian. Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed to hear about your meal and certain specific dishes. We can confirm the trout was actually trout. Our delivery this past week brought a Canadian trout that tends to be brighter in color and fattier. Overall, we will pass this along to our chef and management to follow up in house. We have also reached out privately and hope to hear from you soon.

    Staff was excellent, very helpful and always made sure we had what we needed before we even asked. Restaurant was spotless, and beautiful! The food was ok. My husband ordered a walleye dish, and the beer sauce on the fish was SO bitter and disgusting it was unedible, it tasted like super dark beer (which i usually love) mixed with turpentine, charcoal, and bitters? I dont feel it was made right, because there is no way anyone would think that tasted good... I ordered the trout - absolutely phenomenal. Our kids ordered different cuts of steak- cooked to perfection. The shrimp appetizer was a lump of goo, but tasty. The truffle fries were delicious, visually appealing with the plating, and the sauce they came with paired perfectly. Family of 4 ate for $250 with tip. I would go there again!

    VeritasResponded on October 19, 2022Hello. We appreciate your detailed review from a special night out with your family! The walleye dish does sound off as it is one of our most popular dishes. We hope you had the opportunity to speak with a manager while there. If not please give us a call at 517-888-9001 and ask for a manager so we can find a resolution together.

    We ordered the 10 oz blackened steak for dinner and it was very dry and over cooked . The side dishes weren't impressive at all. Not much flavor. I was very dissatisfied with our foods Now our server was great. On top of everything we asked for and he personally made my birthday dessert so that it would be perfect. My crème brûlée was probably the best dessert I've had in a long time.. Overall it was a nice atmosphere and server but the food was blah .

    Sunday brunch is expensive, but worth it. This is the best brunch I have had, and I can't wait to go back. This is the best kept secret in Jackson! The gourmet feast buffet, which changes weekly, had a carving station with roast beef, truffle mashed potatoes, fresh fruit, waffles, eggs, an omelet station, shrimp, sushi and a dessert station , plus, so much more!

    VeritasResponded on September 27, 2022Hi Kathy. We are glad you found our hidden Sunday Brunch Buffet gem. We love brunch and believe it shows from the presentation to the variety of options. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Oysters, sushi (sunrise roll), and creme brulee were excellent. Main courses were just ok - fresh seafood pasta: something was wrong with the sauce (tasted like burnt oil), exchanged for blackened chicken tortellini (which was fine); lobster ravioli pasta: tasty sauce but lobster chunks were overcooked and a bit rubbery. Servers were great, very attentive and polite. Ambiance was excellent - quiet, cozy, live guitar.
