Veritable Quandary. I just love the name! We made a reservation a week in advance for dinner our first evening in the city. I don't think you need reservations, you can walk in, but if you walk in, you risk a long wait. Veritable Quandary seems like a very popular place.
I would go back to Veritable Quandary, but ask for a different seat or hope for a day warm enough to be outside. I cannot complain enough about our seat area and those wood benches! The employees were very friendly and accommodating, checking on us frequently. Our server was very friendly, although a small quibble is that I asked her to check on garlic in the osso bucco and when she returned to take our order, after a wee bit longer than we would have expected, she had forgotten to check. My cocktail was awful, but perhaps I just don't like rye bourbon/whiskey (I usually drink wheated bourbon).
I think our slight disappointment is from the extremely high reviews on both Yelp & Urbanspoon - they gave us extremely high expectations. Given what the entire meal cost us, we know we have had meals that cost the same/a bit less but we enjoyed every single component whereas here, my cocktail and dessert were, to us, not especially enjoyable.
But there was enough good/tasty that we would return.
