About Veritas Tavern
At Veritas Tavern, we are committed to providing you a positively unique dining experience. Dishes are served as Small Plates in order to present you the opportunity to enjoy an assortment of our traditional and unexpected flavor combinations. While each dish stands alone, they are best consumed in succession with friends. We encourage sharing food, as it inevitably sparks conversation and community, transforming a meal into a memory. Our mission to accomplish a successful dish includes applying the use of the most classic and modern techniques. We are proud of our ingredients and strive to achieve clarity of flavor from each while purposefully choosing every plate’s elements. For us, a successful dish is not only a beautiful and delicious dish, but also one that serves as a catalyst in a journey of aesthetics, texture, and taste. Veritas Tavern does not accept requests for additions, subtractions, or substitutions. Please alert your server regarding any dietary restrictions.

Veritas Tavern Ratings and Reviews

The food - as promised was small plates and fabulous cocktails, but the service left a lot to be desired. Our main waitress had lots of attitude - eye rolling when we asked for certain things (which were totally reasonable). The strangest was when I asked for decaf coffee at the end of the meal, she acted like I had asked for something totally outrageous and with another eye roll, I was told that they don't do decaf... ok, so how about tea - no, sorry... A restaurant that touts itself as a high end culinary experience doesn't have decaf or tea??? We've been to restaurants where the service was bad because the wait staff was inattentive or just too busy, but this was purposefully rude. I have no words, really...

We had the nine course tasting. It was phenomenal! Everything. Small plates, but each seemingly better than the last. Bartender was excellent too. At this place, the drinks are just as creating and delicious as the food!

I love the creativity from the chef, small plates so you can taste many different dishes. Small place with 5 or 6 tables and a large bar. The menu is outside the box and very tasty. If you enjoy trying different creations this is the place. We drive 45 min to get there and it is worth every minute. If you are a steak and potato kind of person this is NOT your spot.

It was our first time there. The food and drinks were wonderful but service was definitely slow. We ordered a tasting menu and the time between each course dragged. We actually ended up leaving before our last three courses even though we repeatedly asked them to rush so that was disappointing. Overall I would recommend just make sure you have no pressing plans because you could be there awhile.

We had five and it is not cheap if you get the tasting menu but other food off the menu is much more reasonable. Since we've only gone for special occasions we get the tasting menu and have not ever been disappointed. Atmosphere is casual. Food is luscious.

The tasting menu was an exciting and delicious dining experience. Due to the small size of the restaurant, a couple of large boisterous groups did influence the overall noise level, taking away a bit of our dining enjoyment.

The best meal we've had in Central Ohio! Josh's creations were quite amazing. We enjoyed every bite! We also enjoyed learning about some of his inspirations for the courses. We had a wonderful time and will be back soon!!!

An immensely creative tapas bar is not necessarily what you expect in a small storefront in Delaware. To appreciate this place, you need to be in the mood for unique daily small plate creations, few standard menu items, and adventurous friends with whom to share. The drink menu is one of the most varied in the area, with a neat pre-prohibition focus. I've never had a hot potato dish served on hot coals at the table, or a great hot potato soup chilled with dry ice. Not inexpensive (we spent almost $100 each counting 4-5 drinks each). Not a lot of seating, so reservations needed.

Had the chef's tasting menu --not cheap, but every course was superb and worth the $, in my opinion. Service was top-notch and every course was explained by the chef/owner himself. Outstanding flavors and creativity. Reservations are a must and the whole experience takes time so plan to savor every course over a couple of hours. They have "small plates" on the menu as well for those wanting to spend less time & $, but I wholeheartedly recommend the full tasting menu.
Best food I have ever had
This place is awesome. The blend of flavor in each small plate is amazing. The presentation of each dish is truly an art form. We had the chefs tasting menu it was great. Our server Tristan explained the preparation and ingredients in all 10 course.
Excellent, excellent, excellent
This is a true gem of a restaurant -- people passionate about food and drinks, as well as people's experience. We went with our kids, who were welcomed and treated in a lovely way. They are 9 & 7 and were a little challenged by some of the more adventurous foods but then absolutely adored the sliders and asked for more. We had a fantastic time. This is a perfect place for celebrations, for business meals, for foodies, for romantic evenings... It's definitely a Delaware/Columbus don't-miss.
The kitchen and wait staff were superb. All were well versed in menu items and explained what each component was and what to expect. Small plate, schmall plate! I left completely satiated. My friend was skeptical when she saw the first component arrive. She doubts no more. My friends and I can't wait to go again!
This place was SUCH a pleasant surprise. The staff was so accommodating and friendly, and they really knew their food and drinks. The food was absolutely fabulous - we tried the small plates and each and every one was better than the last. Loved everything here!!! We'll be going back to try the 7 course meal...
Met My Expectations!!
I've heard nothing but good things from my fellow foodie friends about Veritas Tavern. And it did not disappoint. Everything from the initial greeting, to the complimentary pour of rose (how did they know this is my favorite?!), the expert menu guidance, the superb friendly service, the eye catching, beautiful food presentation, the TASTE, the cocktails, the wine.. I could go on and on. It was perfect. We plan to drive out again when another tasting menu is available.
And please, for the love of God, order the bacon risotto with 62.5 degree egg.
