Veritas Tavern had been referred by several sources as a great place for cocktails & tapas. After perusing the numerous creative options on the well-written cocktail menu, we selected the Hemingway & Under the Weirwood - both delicious choices. We ordered the Brussel sprouts and hush puppies as appetizers. The Brussel sprouts were drizzled with a light and flavorful sauce.... More

We were treated to dinner at Veritas since we had never been there. The restaurant has received some extraordinary reviews in the Columbus Magazine, so we were happy to give it a try. We were shocked to see the price for the tasting menu, but that's what we ordered along with one order of the accompanying wines. We had two... More

Four of us dined at Veritas. The waiter steered us toward the tasting menu, and we were so glad that he did! We first worried that we would not be filed by "just a taste" of a number of items, but we were wrong! The portions and totality of the meal were just perfect! The first course was Shrimp+Grits. When... More

Been coming here for years. The food is always fantastic with presentations that are beautiful. Their drink menu is also one of the best in central Ohio as they make most of their mixers shrubs and other elements. For food the bacon risotto is phenomenal. Recently had the hush puppies with jalapeños n bacon aioli. All tapas at the place... More

I agree with the previous commenter's remarks completely! This restaurant is the "little sibling" of 1808 next door. We also chose to dine off the menu because the tasting menu was going to take 1.5 hours plus and we just didn't have the time to sit for all that. Plus, the chairs are more like bar table chairs and for... More

We had heard so much about this restaurant, so we were excited to go try it out. Their website boasts "Small Plates, Craft Cocktails, and Unparalleled Experience". What we found is "Tiny Plats, Crass Service and Unparalleled Prices". In other words New York City prices for tiny plates in Delaware, OH. We went there with some friends and decided to... More

Again, Veritas Tavern is ranked as one of the top restaurants in the Columbus area and eating there, it's not hard to see why!! I had their tasting menu with different drinks they prescribed. I think it was an 8 course meal and was one of the best meals I have ever had.... they were in no hurry to bring... More

Small, understated and hip restaurant in downtown Delaware. (The name is a bit of a misnomer - this is not a tavern.) We enjoyed the 8 course tasting menu. Interesting presentations, great descriptions by the staff, nicely executed! They also have a standard menu. Wine list is limited but fine, and while we don't do mixed drinks it was clear... More

A first glance you walk into hipster vibe type bar with TINY kitchen in back, you think at best- passable bar food would come out. You would be DEAD wrong. This little gem has AMAZING, fresh, food presented with artistic flair and interpretation. It's like a mini Alinea (fancy food, with fancy descriptions, molecular gastronomy, etc). Great service, Perfect bartender... More
