Vera Mae's Bistro Ratings and Reviews

Very disappointed. We have been here a couple of time a few years back. We enjoyed it then. We made reservations for Valentines Day this time and had NO idea that the regular menu would not be available until we arrived. We had already planned our dinner from the regular menu. We had to instead pick from a very limited menu that cost us twice as much as the regular menu would have cost. We also did not get to order the entrees that we went there for. The cost combined with what we received was not good. The waiter did a great job. The waiter and my date (wife) were the only good things about the evening. We may not return. It was a disappointing evening.

We dined at Vera Mae's for Valentine's Day dinner. The menu was a prixfixe and included very good choices. I had the scallops and my husband had the salmon. They were both delicious. The soup was especially delicious. Our server did an excellent job of timing the courses. It was a five star rated experience!

I took my girlfriend here for Valentines and she absolutely loved it. I enjoyed it very much as well. I drove threw hours and it was definitely worth the drive and the price. I loved the quick and friendly staff which made the experience much much better. I will definitely be recommending and visiting this elegant, fine, accommodating and delicious restaurant. Thank you!

Vera Maes is an absolute gem in Muncie. It gives a big city feel to an evening on the town, yet is quaint, cozy and romantic. Service is excellent and the owners made us feel at home. Food was excellent and ample. Worth the drive even if you live out of town.

We had the special of the evening: a very well-prepared sea bass accompanied by perfect rice pilaf and asparagus that was tender and delicious. A dry riesling has been added to the wine list, and it is a great accompaniment for fish. Muncie is very fortunate to have a restaurant of this quality.

We had a wonderful evening talking with an old friend. The staff was so couteous and helpful. The food was exceptional. We all had dessert. The bread pudding was the best I've ever had!! My brother from New York was very impressed and wants to bring his family the next time they are in town. Thank you for representing Muncie so well!!!

Good value for lunch but not so much for dinner. Products are not seasonal, and the menu never rotates. However, I have never had bad food, so you can't go wrong when you come to Vera Mae's except for your wallet!

We celebrated New Years Eve at this amazing gem tucked away in Muncie's downtown. Food is always fantastic the atmosphere is perfect and the owners Kent and Steve always make you feel so welcomed and appreciated. You must go!!

Tow of us had scallops, and they were outstanding. The filet also received race reviews. The Ghyslain desserts made us think we were in Europe. The beans were not undercooked. They were just ideal as was the couscous. Muncie is so fortunate to have this restaurant since the alternative is a drive to Indianapolis or Ft. Wayne.

The food was wonderful. Everyone was happy with their dish. The service was horrible. The waiter took our appetizer and drink orders and did not return for at least a half an hour with the drinks then 10 to 15 minutes later at least with the appetizers. We had ordered our meals once and then the waiter came back and ask if you could take our order. The food did not arrive for at least an hour after that. During the wait for our food no one came to check on us and there were no apologies for the long wait or an offer to reduce our bill. I was very disappointed in the level of service.

dined during the week, not busy, relatively quiet & very quaint, an upscale vintage bar with linens & nice artwork - menu is small & on the pricey side - don't miss the French onion soup, not my fav but looked delish

I had a friend come in from California and I wanted to take her to fine dining, Vera Mae's is the finest Muncie, Indiana offers. It is five star and my friend was so impressed we went the following night for dinner! I love this place.

We have had better food at Vera Mae; this evening crusted cod was burned/dry on the ends. The rice average, and the green veggie atop the rice did not appear real and had no taste. The flavored tea was not quality. We have had better quality food at Ruby Tuesday, Olive Garden, and
Red Lobster. Our friend from Mercer Island, Washington, was overly impressed, though her salad was better than our cod. The host, however, was pleasant. We have had much better dinners at Vera Maes on other occasions.

We went to Vera Mae's for the first time to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Everything on the menu sounded fabulous, but the reality of the meal was only mediocre. There were four of us and we each ordered something different, but every meal was served with polenta and creamed spinach which accounted for 2/3 of the plate. There was no choice for the starch and vegetable, that is what was served. We all felt that the main dish was good, not great. Very over priced for the quality and quantity of the meal. The seating with a reservation and service were both very good. However, we won't be returning.
