In the new world of dining out, this is an outstanding operation. Keeping distance while having beautiful views and impeccable service and the most engaging food. The wine pairing of course is an added plus. Have been a regular here since they opened the restaurant and appreciate it even more given the challenges of serving in these times.

Absolutely beautiful location and ambiance! Given COVID-19, we chose to sit outside under weather-controlled veranda -- fresh cut and vased flowers, tea lights, views of the vineyards were all incredible touches.

The food was okay, not remarkable, and kind of reminded us of very good wedding food. For the price ($85/pp) you get 4 courses, 4 wine pairings, and a welcome glass of champagne.

We'd go back for the location and setting alone.

We had dinner at The Farmhouse for my 30th birthday with a small group of friends. The service was absolutely 5-star and they went above and beyond throughout the evening. The food, however, left a lot to be desired. The second course was found inedible by our entire table. The third course was phenomenal, but it was the only course that the entire table really enjoyed. It was not a quantity issue, more of a quality.

Absolutely outstanding! The food, the service and the farmhouse were over the top. This was our first covid meal out and it surely did not disappoint. We can’t wait to be back! The food was perfectly cooked (were big foodies) and the wine was paired so nicely. THANK YOU Veritas! Cheers!!

Wine pairings with each of four courses enhanced the flavors of both the food and the wine. We didn’t eat; rather we dined and were pampered throughout by the wait staff and the chef who came out to the dining room to respond to questions from the diners. Excellent all the way round for a special evening.

Food is served effortlessly. Variety and creativity of food is superb. Outside tent is lovely. Only suggestion would be to change the music to something like classical piano or opera, not 60's.

Personal experience with delicious food and staff who were attentive but respectful of social distancing. Outdoor seating was great because you can experience the sun setting over the mountains with each course.

What a beautiful setting for a dinner. Absolutely amazing food and service. My only complaint is that the main course did not come out hot. It was barely warm. Other then that it was perfect.

A uniquely designed meal for the week accompanied by five glasses of wine, not a flight, five full glasses. If you feel $85 is too much for a meal and five glasses of wine, don't go. Each plate is not large, but they are interesting and pair well with the wine they are served with.

My thoughts:
*Do NOT arrive late so you can walk the grounds with your glass of bubbles at 6:30 before the 7:00 seating, and take a romantic photo!
*Unless you can handle five glasses of wine in two hours with no issues, be sure to drink plenty of water! It helps you manage! You don't HAVE to finish every glass.
*Know when sunset is so you can pop outside for another romantic photo!
*Stay the night at the Farmhouse, they have a two course breakfast included and a wine social hour. Like the dinner, well worth the price if you want a nice romantic night.

We took my 86 year old father out for the first time since COVID and sat outside and had a magical evening. He felt safe, the scenery was beautiful and the food perfect. All of the wine pairings were great and the portions of food were appropriate. A very nice evening.

Outstanding service and setting. Truly beautiful location on winery grounds. Food was good; however, due to the way they were serving each dish, the main course was a bit cold (beef)....so a little disappointed in that regard. The flavors the chef created were delicious as was the wine. Can't say enough about the attentive service and kind staff.

The Farmhouse at Veritas was simply amazing! Beautiful space, super-friendly staff, and the food was all so unique and delightfully prepared. It was my wife’s birthday, and they brought her a cake with a small candle and they printed a special note to her on her menu! They went above and beyond to make my wife and I’s evening magical. I gave it a 4 on value because it is VERY pricey, but the experience makes it all worth it, at least for special occasions.

The venue, the food, the service were all just outstanding.

I really think they should raise their prices--we paid $185 for two people for 4 courses and a wine flight each.

When we ordered an extra glass of wine after dinner, they provided that for free.

This is one of the best dining experiences we have had, at a value that I've never seen before.
