    lamb was tough, and too acidic for metterrian food. The eggplant dip was pretty good. I expected better quality cooking from a place that touts itself as gmo free. I'm sure the food came in looking great. Service was great.

    Nice italian/middle eastern sort of organic restaurant. Rather rabid about their "NON-GMO" stance, including a huge banner that you can see from inside while dining. Generous portions, friendly staff. Clean design. That said, the roasted eggplant app was amazing, very sweet and savory onions, perfectly roasted eggplant. I had to ask for some pita slices to go with it - they said they were offering the boule as another app. Superfoods soup was sour and only ok. Nonna Rina's lasagna was quite good, not so much sauce, a lot of pasta with thin layers of meat. Nice in that it wasn't the typical "mounds of cheese" lasagna. Great flavor. Nice beer & wine selection. Chocolate chip cookie and brownie had lots of chocolate flavor. Slightly dry.

    Dined on 9/4/2014
    There was great diversity in the menu especially the vegetable selection & I am definitely not vegetarian. We started w/ the eggplant appetizer (I will get this every visit!) & the stuffed mushrooms (delicious green sauce). While the service is also usually very good, the waitress we had was not on top of things. For entries, we ordered the duck meatloaf, eggplant stew, lamb shank & the 2 filet mignon options. All of the food was delicious but the bacon wrapped filet came w/o bacon. The waitress eventually brought out a couple strips of bacon which is not quite the same thing. I know the missing bacon is not the waitress' fault but she should have checked with the owner or manager about doing something complimentary to make up for it.

    Food lacked flavor and was down right weird--by far the worst lunch I have had in the area. With many wonderful restaurants in the South Bay to choose from, I am surprised they are still able to attract a decent clientele. The farm to table concept is great, but it also needs to be flavorful. They definitely missed the mark on this one.

    We were a group of 6 in for an early dinner at 5 p.m. Reports on the food were good to excellent. The lamb shank in walnut pomegranate sauce was the standout. My pasta was al dente and the meatballs were tender and tasty but not enough ancho flavor in the ancho cream sauce. The only disappointment was the pacing. One appetizer was delivered with the two dinner salads. The mushroom appetizer followed and the soup required a reminder. The entrees for the men were delivered together. It was a too long an interval so that the men had to begin eating while the ladies waited. The wait staff was very pleasant but there is a problem with timing in the kitchen. All said, however, I would return if I found myself in the neighborhood.

    My lunch plate had enamel that was chipped off and the table candle/light holder had a big chip out of the edge if it with sharp edges exposed. Appears they don't have enough revenue to replace damaged wares? Or they don't pay attention to detail. The waitress was not very knowledgable about the food. We asked several question about things and she said she didn't know and never attempted to find out the answer? This pkace is way over rated!!

    Three of the the four of us enjoyed our brunch. I would go back. The fourth member of our group didn't understand what he was ordering; therefore, he didn't like it. I tasted it and didn't care for it either. It was our first time at this restaurant so can't comment on No. 2 except for brunch.

    Third time here. El Segundo is nowhere near me but once in a while if I'm over there this is where I eat. Fresh food, excellent vegetables. Meat lover or vegetarian you'll be fine. Local sourcing. Portions on plate large but also wonderful option on some dishes of ordering a small size. Reasonably priced. I love their salmon. Rest of table had lamb, stuffed peppers, short ribs. Everyone happy. The three dip appetizer with warm pita is delicious.

    The food and service at Farm Stand was good, but they were out of two of the dishes (pumpkin ravioli and short ribs with eggs benedict) we were wanting to try. I guess because it was Mother's Day and they were busy in the morning, they had run out of these dishes by lunchtime (1:30 PM for us). I was kind of disappointed, as I was looking forward to the pumpkin ravioli and my brother and husband were looking forward to the short ribs. They were the main reason we came. The meals we did have were good. We especially liked the french fries and the melted brie appetizer.

    Farm Stand used to be one of my favorite places. This last time I was there (12:30pm) they were already out of a number of items (including the item that I had been CRAVING for weeks). When everything was brought to our table nothing was right. My pasta was oily and bland. My friend who ordered a burger with caramelized onions and swiss cheese (because they were out of bleu cheese) but no bun got a burger with swiss, raw onions and a bun. We asked for caramelized onions on the side and they brought grilled onions... not the same thing. I was really disappointed, this is the 3rd time they have been out of staple items, I don't think I'll be back.

    The good: variety of food options, and they are great to cater to specific diets, ambiance (inside is best - I don't love the outside seating) The bad: the food is mediocre, the service isn't very good either. I thought at first it was just a one time issue, but I've been here 3 times recently hoping to give it another chance but overall the servers aren't attentive to tables. I have given this restaurant 4 tries, but I don't think I'll be returning anymore.

    my pomegranate lamb stew was good. the dark beer on tap was so foamy that it took several minutes to settle and then several more minutes for the busy server to bring it. the complimentary roasted eggplant with goat cheese was a nice touch, except they ran out of goat cheese. the server was very nice, but although there were a lot of servers running around, the service was slow and a bit inattentive. the best thing was the "mini" dessert: a delicious few bites of chocolate mousse. sure, i'm local, so i'd go back at some point. but, i'm in no rush....

    So I ended up eating here three times this past week and could never understand how this place was not packed to the gills with an hour wait or longer! The food was simply amazing, the fresh ingredients were delicious and the staff were friendly and helpful. I ended up bringing a group of 12 here for dinner one night since the meal was so wonderful, and everyone had a delightful time.
