Veritas Wine and Bistro Ratings and Reviews
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
We love to eat good food, who doesn't. Having visited CS last yr on the Texas campus tour, we dined at a few restaurants that were less then good, Luigis for sure, so didn't expect to much here. Holy Cow! Great wine list and priced fair. My Wagyu steak was incredible. And coming from San Antonio, we have Bohanans, The Palm, Ruths Chris, Perrys, etc, this steak can hold it's own. Yeah it's small and may be pricey for the size, but the char was great and cooked to perfection med rare. My son selected A&M, I just got season tickets at Kyle field, so we will hit Veritas many times again
Veritas was an excellent choice for our post-graduation lunch this past weekend. We had a party of 10 - Veritas was able to up our reservation from 7 to 10 ten days before hand. The menu was the same menu for lunch and dinner. Highly recommend the sea bass - excellent. The baked potato soup was amazing! worth every calorie. My steak was slightly undercooked - but I attributed that to 110 people sitting down at the same time - rushing to get the food out.
Second visit to Veritas - enjoyed both very much. Service was excellent - even with having 110 sit at one time.
We made lunch reservations for Friday of graduation weekend via Open Table. The reservations were later modified and then confirmed via telephone. At no time did anyone warn us that no lunch menu is available on special A&M weekends and that the dinner menu is used for lunch on "graduation and football weekends." We had spent a small fortune the night before at another highly rated restaurant nearby and were not really shopping for $22-38 lunch entrees.
Apparently, their price-gouging policy is explained to potential customers who book via phone, but not always to those of us who use Open Table. (I was the third person to complain "this week;" all Open Table users by the restaurant's admission.) The manager who called me to explain after my inquiry said the policy is also on their website, but it did not not appear there until after that phone call. He tried to tell me that they use a Prix Fixe menu on these big weekends, but for our meal it was their standard a la carte dinner menu.
The dining experience was pleasant with good food and nice service. The snapper, potato and bacon soup, and carpaccio were all excellent. The lamb chops were under-cooked and under-seasoned. The duck, salmon, and calamari were good, but not exceptional. Portion sizes are very small.
This restaurant was very elegant and the atmosphere was romantic. I would like to eat on the patio and listen to the waterfall on a date. It is nice for a special occasion, but a little pricey for everyday dining . I like to try different foods and the menu had some items I was unfamiliar with so I would definitely go back to try something new!
Server was very nice but a little unpolished with no sense of timing. Brought my entree before I had finished my salad, tried to clear my entree and attempted to take a dessert order before I was finished with entree. Brought the check before I finished dessert. Great food and atmosphere but servers need training to provide a true fine dining experience.
