Veritas: Overjoyed or overrated?

I'm taking a friend to a celebratory dinner tomorrow night, and made reservations for their 3-course prix fixe menu. Wondering if anyone has tried it and if it's worth it. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    It's been a while since we've been to Veritas; however, whenever we have had dinner there, the food has been superb. For us, it's always been a very worth-it experience. Btw, the 3-course prix-fixe is the only menu.

      I had the pleasure of dinning there right before the holiday and had a great experience.
      While the menu isn't very long, it seems well constructed and there wasn't a 'dud' from any of the orders on our table.
      The stand out for me was the braised rabbit with mushroom over gnocchi, really great flavor, I'd highly recomend it.
      The other hight note of the evening was a great dessert wine by the glass - Hungarian I believe, Tokai (no idea on the spelling?).
      Pleasant service, and as you might expect, a very large wine list, or shall we say book, that they were helpfull in sorting through.
      Enjoy!

        good food, good wine. dark and quiet in a good way. the small bar in front is a swell place to decompress while waiting for your companion.

        some modest thoughts: hit the website and check out the superb wine list; order the foie gras; marvel at the beauty of the seven-eighths sized men's room.

        all-in-all, a pretty cool place.
