It was a bittersweet goodbye as we will no longer have this wonderful restaurant so close to home, but we wish them the best as they move to Columbus.

Did the tasting menu and loved it so much especially the shrimp and grits and steamed bun with pork. I will be sad when they move downtown as it will be twice the amount of time to get there but it will be worth it.

We had a wonderful experience at Veritas. The drinks were unusual and delicious. Amazing variety! We were in a rush and had to take one menu item to go....but that was our fault. We took too long placing our order and did not watch the clock.
The quality of the food was especially high.....the Bacon Risotto was to die for!

The creative food and drinks at Veritas will be sadly missed when this Delaware gem moves to bigger quarters in downtown Columbus.

Is there a better place in Ohio to eat? I think Veritas delivers the most tasty, creative, and sumptuous meals. And because you can do small plates or fix prix, it's infinitely flexible on the budget. I've been coming to Veritas since it opened, and this past Friday we brought a foodie colleague from Cleveland. At every new small plate, she was ooh-ing and awe-ing. (And the service is always impeccable). She said that she'd driven down from Cleveland just for dinner here again. Luckily we get to enjoy it merely by driving to Delaware (or soon -- to Columbus -- a move for Veritas is coming soon).

This is the best restaurant in the Columbus (and surrounding) area hands down. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and the food is amazing. My wife and I have been here several times and have always been impressed with the quality of the ingredients, the creativity of the menu and presentation, and most importantly the staff's desire to deliver a top notch service experience. Veritas is able to deliver quality food and service comparable to that of a Michelin starred restaurant in a relaxed environment with a down to earth staff that will leave you wondering why you didn't visit sooner.

We felt the price point was a little, but understandable given the number of seats. The new location will hopefully address this issue. The food quality and service were outstanding!

Love this place every time we go! Food is fantastic, service incredible. Love bringing new people as they are always blown away. The feta dip and brussels sprouts are my favorite starters. Loved the scallops! The Hemingway cocktail is perfection. Must always try the white and dark chocolate dessert and cant miss the coffee and port. Will be there again next week!

They keep it up at Veritas - another delicious, well paced, interesting tasting menu dinner. Starting with the one bite shrimp and grits and ending with the one bite "banana split" that explodes in your mouth. We had been looking forward to another opportunity to dine at what is our favorite central OH restaurant. It is just a different atmosphere / food experience than you will find this side of Chicago/NYC.
If you are looking for glitz and pretense look elsewhere. These are real folks that are there for the food / drink like it's their hobby. We get it and appreciate it. Highly recommended.

Wonderful. I don't review restaurants usually, but it was so good, it is possible to forget how much it costs. I wanted to impress my sister from DC, and it worked. Food and service were impeccable. Definitely worth writing home about.
The photo is their banana split concoction. It is kind of like a chocolate covered cherry, except banana filling. It wasn't as exceptional as the rest of the dishes, but the most photogenic.

Savor your time at veritas. The kitchen staff are wonderful to watch as they prepare perfectly detailed dishes. Tristan and the bar staff are wonderful and watching them create cocktails is like watching an artist paint a masterpiece. The drinks were wonderful. The recommendations were on point.

We went on our first official date here 4 years ago and wanted to go back to celebrate officially being together as a couple for 4 years (married over 2) and due to add a little one to our family in a month! The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was spectacular! The setting was romantic and quiet.

Amazing experience! My husband was very reluctant to go as he is not a fan of small plates and sharing but he was blown away ! Everything was perfect. It didn't look like a lot of food but everything was so rich that we were very full ! Great food, drinks and service!!

Fabulous. One of (if not the best) meal we've had and we go out a lot. We did the a la carte menu which was not only delicious but also was very reasonably priced. Drinks were awesome and the presentation of each cocktail and dish only magnified the experience to an even higher level.

Really exceptional experience this past Saturday at Veritas Tavern. We went with the 7 course option that was selected by the chef and loved every one of them. Upscale tavern feel with great drinks, wine and unique food presentations. A+ anniversary experience!

My first trip here. I feel like I wasted the last three years of my life by not coming here sooner. The small plates were creative and delicious. The service was perfect. The handcrafted cocktails tasted like they were made with a passionate creator. The wine selection was creative and accommodating for the magnificent menu. Kudos!! We will be back. Thank you!
