  • Artichoke, Soups and Ribs

    Since moving to California, 32 years back, and learning to eat artichokes "on the stem" (rather than from a bottle), I have never enjoyed one as much as I did at this restaurant. We savored each leaf and "Mmmmmed" the heart quarters. The tomato-pepper soup was not less tasty, and the ribs were "to die for," in fact I am writing from Heaven at this moment. Go to the Farmstead and taste for your self. It is well worth the trip.

    I loved the whole experience at Farmstead. It was a gorgeous day to be eating outside. The food choices for a gluten free eater were many. The food was fresh and delicious. Lots of servers running around but ours was spread a little thin. Didn't ruin the experience though. Would definitely go back.

    This was our second visit, the first was just the two of us. We decided to try again for dinner to include our 5 out-of-town friends (from New York City) after a day wine tasting, and everyone in our entire party had a great experience! For sure, we plan to return on a Tuesday for their chicken special soon!!!

    This get-together among a circle-of-8-girlfriends was a birthday celebration. This was recommended by the only 1 who had been here before. The lunch went well beyond our expectation and even the řain was welcomed as a pleasant surprise due to the existing drought in CA. With 8 women in the crowd, it is expected to have 'special needs'; I'm sure we did not disappoint (iced tea with little ice, Diet Coke with lots of ice, water with no ice, we'look split a burger two ways and split a salad too, etc.) Our server Sam was able to handle it all flawlessly! So thank you for a great day well spent in the wine country. .. we will be back

    It takes about 75 minutes to get there from San Francisco, but it's a pretty drive through wine country. We arrived at 11:35 for a 11:45 reservation and were seated at once. But it filled up rapidly and a reservation is probably essential to ensure you can dine soon after arriving. The four of us had 4 different meals, and all the food was superb. The service was very nice. We'll definitely make that trip again.

    We have been dining at Farmstead since it opened and have always marveled at the taste that is coaxed out of every dish. Last Saturday we visited again but both entrees was under-seasoned and not up to the usual standard. Has there been a change in the kitchen staff?

    Our 1st time to farmstead was everything we had heard. Great decor and service and the farm fresh food was as advertised. Our only criticism is that they mainly serve their Long Meadow Ranch wines which are average at best. A minor issue considering the overall wonderful experience. Next time we just bring our own bottle as we noticed several other patrons did.

    Oh so fabulous...where to start? We loved Farmstead for so many reasons. Great location (next door to Tra Vigne.) Great setting and ambiance. Impeccable and friendly service (thanks, Molly! You are the best.) Amazing, amazing food. We were blown away by how delicious everything was. Those cheese biscuits with honey butter are to DIE FOR. The crostini with burratta and roasted garlic was heavenly. Ribs, yummy. Crab and shrimp salad, fresh and delicious. Our Sangiovese was the perfect complement for it all. We enjoyed a lovely late Sunday afternoon lunch. It was a perfect experience top to bottom. Thanks, Farmstead! We shall return. Definitely.

    Dissappointed
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    Sadly, our experience at Farmstead fell way below our expectations. The ambience and service were pretty good, but the food we ate did not score big - fresh from the farm or not. The beat salad lacked something to make it special, and the lamb special looked very good, but was so tough it was returned (the staff and Manager made it right). The highlight of the food we ordered was the Tuscan bean soup (delcicious!) and the cheddar cheese biscuits (yum). Of course, after sharing our disappointing experience with others, we were told we should have tried the meatballs or the chicken. Maybe if there is a next time...

    Really fun and vibrant place with very tasty and filling food; one of our dishes was recommended by our server, but was pretty bland - otherwise fantastic. We typically order glasses of wine, because we like to try different things, and we did find their by the glass menu somewhat lacking. This is probably our main reason for putting this restaurant on the 'in reserve' list for reservations in the future.

    From the moment we walked through the door, we were treated beautifully by the host a very charming man. Because I mentioned when I made the reservation that it was my husbands birthday we were seated in a spacious booth (not typically available). All I can report here about the food is that it was over-the-top. I had the cheeseburger (best I've ever had) and Mark ordered the St. Louis ribs which he reported was the best he's ever had and that's coming from a boy raised in Texas. Love the Farmstead and we'll be back!

    We had high hopes with the place but we're quite disappointed by th food. The kale salad was burned with too little flavours other than burned cheese. The lamb was good, very nice meat and cooking, cooked with delicious spices. But the dish was overly salty. It really ruined the dish. You can try this place, but come with limited expectations then.

    Six of us dined together, so I got to try a lot. All of the dishes were absolutely delicious. I had the beet salad. The beets were still warm after being caramelized on the grill...easily the most delicious beets I've ever eaten. My friends enjoyed the kale salad, smoked ribs, burger and several of the side dishes. Everything was packed with flavor, presented beautifully, and felt quite healthy. The ambience was great. I'll definitely return here.

    We were very impressed with the brunch and separate lunch menus offered to us at the same time. The starters were fantastic. We had Monkey bread for the table. Best Monkey bread ever! Then we ordered the cheese biscuits (which are free if you check in on Yelp). They were great as well. Everyone got something different. The only complaint we had was that the ribs were overcooked. The manager came out and personally apologized and gave us another rack of ribs to take home and then took the original one off the bill! The service was outstanding! Every time we even hinted at needing something, someone was there to take care of it! Everyone was friendly and helpful! We had a great time and we will be back!

    We have been to Farmstead dozens of times since it's opening and it continues to be outstanding! The food is always good and hearty and exciting to foodies and non-foodies alike. The chili, brick chicken, and the ribs are fantastic. And they really know how to prepare rancho gordo heirloom beans so I always look for those in the set-up when considering my choice for the day. The desserts were especially tasty...the best beignets outside of New Orleans and a scharffenberger chocolate cream pie that just melts seductively in your mouth. This is the restaurant that we always take our of town guests to as their menu truly pleases everyone. Our visit this time was enhanced by the fabulous service from Anya!

    The food was outstanding. The four of us had trout, pork chop, ribs and chicken. All equally wonderful. Nice that you can bring in your own wine for a $5 corkage fee. This was one of the major factors when choosing this restaurant for our weekend visit. Large dining room made it somewhat noisy but was manageable. Service was friendly. Food was prompt. Will make it a destination whenever in the Napa Valley and will recommend it to anyone going there.

    Four of us had lunch here and I must say, the food was fabulous. We started with the ham sandwiches which were overwhelmingly delicious. We had meatballs, grits, tomato soup, and burgers and pulled pork. All were wonderful. The only item that wasn't perfect was the margarita, which was touted as the "best in the valley" It was too light on the lime juice, and too heavy on the tequila. Our waitress, Molly, was friendly, and efficient. All in all, I can't wait to go back!

    Farmstead always amazes, at first one is struck with the vibrancy of the surroundings, inside and out - lively outside bar scene that seems mostly of locals - inside buzz of people enjoying themselves. Food goes from strength to strength... if it is garden fresh time for something in particular it is on the plate. We came for lunch and stayed for the concert on the lawn.. a great day adventure

    I have eaten at Farmstead several times. It gets better each time. We chose to eat at the bar; it was quieter in a very noisy place. LMR Sauvignon Blanc was delicious, fresh and crisp. The grilled artichoke rivaled Rutherford Grill's which has been our favorite. The beer selection was an education and went so well with my bbq ribs. The lamb sliders made from the home grown lambs were outstanding and tasted like lamb which isn't always the case anymore because the lovely taste of lamb is being bred out of lamb. The seasonal side dish of sliced, grilled squash was fantastic in looks and flavor. Can't wait to return for another delicious meal. The bartenders were excellent, too. We also enjoyed the outside jazz concert that afternoon.

We ordered the 'famous' cheddar biscuits to get things started - and while they weren't as fluffy or fabulous as others I've had, they were devoured quickly. We'll be back!

    We had a great lunch here! We each had a starter and entree. The cocktail of the day was definitely the ginger julep--we each had two. The food hits for us were the meatballs with tomato jam, the crab and shrimp Louie salad, and the burger. We really appreciated the valet parking on such a busy Saturday! The only miss was a couple times servers tried to bring us things we hadn't ordered, but it nay have green chalked up to how busy they were.

    We arrived in St. Helena on Friday last week and made our first stop at Farmstead. I've read a lot about the place and have been very excited to come here! It definitely delivered! The star of the night was my chili. Just simple, basic chili and I had to fight my dad for it. He kept grabbing it away until I just gave in. We ordered a bottle of wine from Long Meadow Ranch since that's where we were and had never tried it. It was very tasty! My partner had the ribs and they were incredible! Definitely the Star of the night. The only thing that made me give food 4 stars, was that my dad's pork chop was overcooked and dry, and my wagyu gnocchi dish was a little bit strange and heavy. We both still ate them of course!
