The server was very friendly and the ambiance was nice. The food is way overpriced when comparing to Ann Arbor and Metro-Detroit restaurants with much better tasting food. Three pasta entrees with three adult beverages and two desserts (no appetizers) was $159. Will not be back given the pricing and food quality.

Our server Callie was fantastic. The ribeye was good but I felt maybe not totally worth the price. Picahna was great. It came out undercooked but manager was so wonderful about making it right for us. Will definitely be returning.

Rather than taking it off my bill they gave me a free dessert and drink. Not entirely comparable but better than nothing. Everyone that ordered steaks were happy. The atmosphere was nice, but the food is way overpriced for the quality. I won’t go back again.

It seemed to be a slow night for them, many open tables, but we all had wonderful meals and our waiter, Chris, was very attentive, friendly and helpful. A wonderful evening out.

Our drinks came promptly. Appetizer came in a reasonable time. Our 6 meals took about 40 minutes to come! And then another 15 minute wait when we ordered dessert. The wait time was very disappointing. The restaurant was NOT busy, so that didn't seem to be the problem. Insufficent staffing in kitchen? The wait times will deter us from returning. Too bad as the food was excellent.

Even the uncomfortable reviews help us to make changes and improve service. We take each one seriously. We are sorry to hear your meal time did not meet your expectations. We do recommend guests plan on 90 minutes for dinner service, but we also want to respect your time if you have plans. We are reaching out directly to gather a little more information and hope to hear from you soon.

The food & service have been excellent in the past. During this recent visit, the food quality was a bit lacking. Happy to pay higher prices for great food, but didn't feel it was worth it. Waited several minutes for one of our cocktails. Waitstaff said the bartender had to find the alcohol? Waited several minutes for soy sauce bowls. Waitstaff said they were in the dishwasher? Asked for salad dressing on the side. Dressing was mixed in. Food was good, but not great. Just didn't seem up to par from previous visits. Very few people were in the restaurant. I hope they can improve and continue to thrive!

The service and atmosphere was good. The food and drinks were overpriced based on similar restaurants. The quantity of food recieved was not worth the price charged for the meal. The pour of wine was about 5 skimpy sips worth. I would not recommend eating at this restaurant until it improves.

Great find; great service and delicious food! Will definitely visit Veritas again probably to enjoy a dinner experience (menu has a lot of variety for cuisine).

We really enjoyed most of our meal. Top ratings to the mussels, mushrooms, creamed spinach ad pot de creme. Our mains were both fish - mine salmon, a bit overdone but tasty, companion Ahi tuna - tough. Also, the ginger carrot salad was a disappointment. The dressing was blah. The carrot and ginger would be better if pureed together. All in all, we will be back - there is so much good food there!

Serving staff was great and the food was delicious however it took our whole lunch hour for our food to cook! For a 3top with nobody in the restaurant we were very dissatisfied with how long it took to get our food!

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback from your recent visit to Veritas. We will look into this situation. We have worked hard over the last year to streamline the lunch service as we know some guests have an hour for their lunch break. We'd like to follow up with you directly and have reached out privately. We hope to hear from you soon.

I ordered the trout because I read it was sourced from a local fishery. For the "fresh catch" option, there's the choice of grilled, sauteed, or blackened. I choose blackened, and the seasoning was perfect. Good selection of sides, too. I had polenta and seasonal veggies (mixture of root veggies, and it was obviously they were fresh and hand chopped rather than typical restaurant frozen veggies). My wife had walleye, with side of potato puree (with truffle) and a rice/beans mix. For dessert we shared an opera cake, which was fantastic. Wine, beer, and cocktail selection is also quite good (my ONLY complaint is that the drink menu is on a electronic tablet, and making a drink selection is cumbersome when they only give you one tablet for 2 people--but that's a minor issue). Will definitely return.

Then 35 mins went by after the salad when I finally and politely asked where’s our food? Turns out the kitchen never got the order. So 9 mins later. 46 mins after a salad my salmon and her shrimp came out and just as I feared it was COMPLETELY raw in the middle. Consistency is absolutely killing this place. It’s so completely hit or miss. While they did make it right by comping the meals and sent us with a 20.00 gift card it really makes it hard to ever return.

The food took a very long time to come out and was mediocre at best. Fish and chips floating in grease, steak and fries also greasy, Avocado sandwich was a big lettuce stack. Can’t say we will return. Also was a 21st birthday lunch. No offer of desert menu. Got the bill and left. 🤷‍♀️

Within walking distance to the Michigan Theatre of Jackson as well as a few other bars. Nice bar area, great ambiance, great service, great food though I do think it is a bit overpriced. Overall it was a nice experience and I would eat here again if in the area.

The sushi is excellent and bread is very good, but all three times my entrée has been just ok with the last time not good at all. The rest of the people at my table enjoyed their meals and the restaurant always went out of their way to make things right. I will probably try it again as I enjoy the sushi....

When paying top dollar, the food should be exceptional.The blackened scallops & bread were great, but the soup salad and all sides were mediocre. My husband who loves walleye, was very let down with the walleye special.
