On a quite Monday night, the place was empty and yet service was horrible. We waited and waited. The bar people were incompetent, for one example

Good Asian inspired/Asian fusion food; highly recommend- Steak Carpachio, Lobster Bisque, Miso Sea Bass, & Bass cake. Can't go wrong.

The food and ambience were amazing. Probably the best oysters and tartar I've ever had. I want the cookbook :)

The quiet table provided as requested allowed for good conversation with guest, excellent wine and great food. Accordingly, the evening was very enjoyable. The guest was also impressed with the salmon entre and wine. The only suggestion was that the pork rib eye was a bit bland.

Veritas provided a table in a quiet area of the restaurant to allow for conversation with a visiting scientist, as we as excellent fish and scallop dinners. The service was excellent as was the wine and the price was excellent value.

The food presentation and service were great however the food was not good at all .

The place definitely has potential but a high ranking is not something that it deserves until the food is seasoned properly even with simple salt and pepper .

I personally had the wagyu steak and it was truly flavorless

I will never eat here again much less recommend this place to any person that I know

The pace at this restaurant is very slow, so don't go there if you are hoping to get done quickly. A 3-course meal is at least 3 hours.

Veritas is the best restaurant in the Bryan-College Station area--with great ambience and an upscale clientele for a college town with 60,000 students!! And we have several really good restaurants in the area.

Chef Tai's menu is eclectic, healthy, sophisticated. His Gazpacho is the best I have ever had. HIs Spicy Tuna Sushi is luscious. His treatment of seafood is delectable--from his Simply Grilled Fish (Redfish last visit) to his various treatments of Sea Bass. We love his Silver Lining Salad.

All in all, we continue to visit Veritas--both for lunch (some great combo dishes on the luncheon menu) and for dinner.

My wife and I were both impressed by the food and presentation. We also thought that our waiter was superb. My wife is not much of a wine drinker, but I though that the selection was outstanding. Five Stars. Also, we both left thourogly satisfied with the portions. The Creme Brulee was maybe the best I have ever had.

The food is absolute delicious We had the signature miso sea bass and it was out of this world, perfectly cooked. Service was excellent, our server was very great.

There is a dearth of fine dining restaurants in this area, but this one will stand up to any one that you would find in Houston or Austin. Our entire experience was wonderful, but if you go, do try the Steak Carpaccio. Incredible! There is an extensive wine selection for those interested in that aspect. It is a great late night place for wine and music on the weekends.

I have dined at Veritas several times, on special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries etc). My dining experience has always been superb. The food is creatively presented and great tasting. The wine selection is extensive and the cocktails are imaginative. The wait staff are very attentive and pleasant. The Chef's menu (omakase) paired with wine selections is a great choice, though expensive. Overall, this is an expensive place to dine, so you do not want to take small/unwilling children there.... I have nothing bad to say about dining at Veritas.

This is by far the best restaurant in College Station. We make sure to dine there every time we visit our son. High-quality ingredients prepared in an innovative way. Outstanding outcome every time.

Food was good, wait stuff was knowledgeable, friendly and considerate. We were there early in the evening so it was still pretty quiet. By the time we left, the restaurant was very full and it was getting a bit noisier but overall not bad. If I lived there locally, it would probably be a place I would consider for special occasions and nice dinner with friends.

Veritas is one of my all time favorite restaurants. The menu is a bit eclectic, reflecting the creativity of the head chef Tai Lee. Our server, Joshua, always does a fine job. We nearly always choose Veritas for special occasions. I am never disappointed.

I had the rib eye and although very tender it didn't have much taste. I received roughly two table spoons of mashed potatoes and about four pieces of asparagus. My wife had the salmon, she thought is was very good.

If I spend $120 to eat it better all be good and plenty of it, not impressed.

My husband and I were waiting for a call back from a popular upscale restaurant in College Station in order to make a dinner reservation. In the meantime I was able to reserve a table at Veritas through Open Table, which turned out to be a very nice surprise. It was the first time we had dined there and drinks, food, and service were fantastic. The wine list included our favorite California Chardonnay which is a rare find locally.
Our server Johnathan was so helpful and we weren't disappointed with his food suggestions. Go there! And order their Miso Sea Bass--it was delicious. The house salad shouldn't be missed either. Just go there. You are in for a nice surprise.

I went here for a special occasion. I talked it up to my family because we were in town for son's orientation. It was me and my wife's anniversary. We got the four course meal each, wife, son and myself. Waitress was not helpful in wine pairing. Cold tomatoe soup did not taste good. Calamari tasted too sweet. Sea bass was fresh, but not cooked well. Tenderloin was good. We liked some of the desserts, but not more than half. When I go to a restaraunt of this quality, I expect the best; I was underwhelmed!

Jonathan was one of the best waiters we have ever had at Veritas. His special attention to our needs was appreciated, as well as his charming sense of humor.
The food was excellent start to finish.

This is my second time eating at Veritas. The first time was a few months after it opened. This time was about 2 years later.
The food was as delicious and creative as the first time. Inventive Asian fusion creations with appealing presentation. The grilled schezuan shrimp appetizer also came in a non spicy version done perfectly for my husband. His grilled fish and vegetables were very tasty. I had the New Zealand lamb chops. They were cooked just right.

I was surprise that this business gets any business. Location is not viewable from the main street and once you come inside its kinda dark. Overall, the service was great and the meal was outstanding. The lamb chops are must try!
