My party was seated on time, waiter came with water promptly and took our drink order. He was very polite and knowledgeable of the menu and ingredients. Two of my party ordered Ahi tuna that was prepared properly and had a wonderful taste. All requests were responded to in a timely manner. Overall a fun and enjoyable evening!

Found this restaurant on open table and thought it would be a fun night to get out of Lansing. We really enjoyed the live music it made for a very good atmosphere but wasn't to loud. Also they had some very unique cocktails that were super well done. The food was just average, it was priced more upscale but didn't really hit the mark. Everything was super salty, i do love salt but it was a lot. But overall a fun place to try to get out of Lansing.

The brunch wasn’t what I thought it would be however what we had was good and unique. Just thought we’d have an opportunity to order a steak, chicken or seafood lunch item.
Even though I am marking no to recommending friends to dine here it’s just b/c most of my friends / family would look for meat and potato’s type of lunch.

They had a live band playing some light relaxing music. Also, the handmade chocolates are yummy. There were different flavors for everyone. Very impressed and will be coming back.

Friends strip steak was good but his wifes filet had an off flavor and texture almost like liver
My scallops were good but my wife's ribeye was flavorful but very tough

In fairness it seems to be nearly impossible to get a great steak anywhere at any price with any consistency

Service was good and ambience was very nice

After a long time of wanting to eat here we finally made it. Our reservation request was for a regular table, but we were seated as a high top for two at the bar. Drinks came out right away. Entertainment played on a Friday night and was amazing. Nice light music and songs. Not too loud and relaxing. Salads arrived, but the wrong salads came out. The server caught it when she walked past before we could mention it. Entrees were both fish and were well cooked and a decent value. One of the sides that was delivered to the table was incorrect. Again, the server noticed before we could ask. Nothing jumped out at us for dessert so we went elsewhere as the price seemed expensive for what was on the menu. Would come back for a second shot.

This was our forth time at Veritas. I had the Brazilian beef. I’ve had it twice before and it was very good, but this time it was very tough (cooked medium). Another person at our table had it cooked medium raw and his was also tough. Having said that, it was still very tasty. My wife had a trout filet that was very good. Happy hour drinks are low price, but they are very expensive afterwards. The restaurant is quite nice and spacious. We enjoyed the entertainment too.

A very nice upscale place to eat. Everyone was friendly and service was great. We had the seasonal Shepherds pie made with filet mignon which was delicious. The house ginger carrot salad was just ok. I think an upgrade on the salad would be beneficial.

The service was excellent. Truffle fries mouthwatering, but not enough to make up for the dryness of a rare and medium rare steak that was dry. For a high end steak house they just need to learn how to properly season and cook their steaks and they will be 5 stars all the way around. We read mixed good/bad reviews and gambled on getting steaks. All the sides were great, the lobster tail from the surf and turf good too. Had some Brazilian steak meal where bread crumbs on top were supposed to soak up the steak juices the waiter said for flavoring on top? It was a dry steak with dry bread crumbs and no flavor. But the black beans and rice for the side was the best ever. Great place, great service, recommend all but the steaks.
