    Farmstead Table is a charming neighborhood restaurant. The food is very fresh and locally sourced. I had a wonderful heirloom tomato salad for an appetizer. I ordered the hen for my entree, and it was incredibly flavorful! My husband thoroughly enjoyed his pork chop, too. We can't wait to go back to this restaurant!

    This is one of our favorite restaurants---but not this time. We ordered three main courses--one was perfect, the soup came out half full with not all the ingredients. The waitress realized there was an error after eating the soup and then corrected the mistake. However, the sword fish had to be recooked, it took about 15 minutes and by then we were finished with our dishes. The chef/owner was sitting in the restaurant and didn't even come by to apologize for 60% of the MEALS being done incorrectly. A very disappointing meal. I even wrote an email to the restaurant and never heard back from them.

    Farmstead Table has delicious, fresh food. I ordered a cup of tomato soup, and it was flavorful and not too salty. I licked the cup when I was done! I also got the salad with roasted chicken on top. The chicken was just roasted there, and I could really tell the difference! It was outstanding! The only issue I had was that the peaches were hard and should have been ripe. They offered me some berries and fresh yellow watermelon instead, which satisfied me. I recommend this restaurant!

    Had a great evening. All of the food was prepared with much care and the ingredients were highlighted by simple and balanced seasoning. Appetizers really showcased local ingredients. Yellow Watermelon, Fried Green Tomatoes and Oysters were shared and we were all members of the "Clean Plate Club!" The quality of the ingredients was impeccable. Both seafood and vegetables were fresh and had vibrant flavors and texture. The fish was grilled perfectly and arrived juicy and done exactly as requested-New England Swordfish done Medium, just a faint bit of pink in the core. Deserts didn't disappoint either. Again, simple but expertly done Peach Tart and Berry Cobbler were awesome. Make a trip here, you will not be disappointed!

    A very nice man started out as our waiter, he was pleasant, attentive and helpful. But, the woman who was actually our waitress was talking about other guests, texting, disappearing into the back kitchen for minutes at a time and somehow had a hard time picking up her feet as she walked. The restaurant was not busy so that was not the issue. She was also overheard telling some guests in rough tone that if they had shown up earlier in the dining hours they would have more options to choose from the menu since they run out of things. Cute place food was ok, but not going to run back anytime soon with that service I am wondering if others are feeling the same way. Too bad.

    Local farm offerings prepared with simplicity and flavor. The buttermilk fried green tomatoes were quirky and delicious, tart tomatoes in the thinnest ever batter topped with fresh corn and basil. The game hen was lovely, and my vegetarian wife enjoyed the corn ravioli with chanterelles. Topped it all off with creme brûlée and a luscious berry cobbler with lemon verbena ice cream. All served with expert advice and warmth by Michelle. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem.

    This restaurant has a small menu, but I found the raviolo that I ordered delicious and my tomato salad was excellent, too. The service was a little odd. We weren't given menus at first, then they appeared, then while we were pondering what to order, our waiter "borrowed" my menu to give to the woman at the next table so she could select her dessert. Not enough menus? Too inconvenient for the waiter to get another one? We ordered three popovers (which weren't worth $3 a piece) but only got two. All in all, nice food with peculiar service.

    Farmstead continues to be my favorite restaurant. The food is delicious and always prepared fresh, hot, beautiful and wonderful. the staff is outstanding and make you feel so great about being there. The wine is exceptional and I always find an interesting white that compliments my meal. The bread and popovers are delicious and are a nice way to start the meal. This time I had the green salad with pickled cherries! Have you ever had a pickled cherry? Wow, it was wonderful. This is a great place and the owners chef is terrific- get your reservation in now. I can't waitt o go back again!

    Overall disappointing. ...especially when dinner for two was $125 I expected better. I don't eat cheese, and I did inform the waiter. ..for non cheese eaters the small menu down right tiny. The only cheese free ap ..fried clams w bib lettuce...a single wilted leaf. My companion loved their corn fritter soup..parm cheese. The fish special was described by the waiter with no mention of the pesto it was swimming in. The cheese was overwhelming and all my scraping couldn't get rid of it. Cheese on fish is not something one expects especially when I made it clear. And the fish was underdone and still clear gelatin in the center. The poppers were cold. They had no cappuccino. .they had no black tea...had to settle for jasmin green tea...

    My husband & I started our meal by sharing the fried clams appetizer. It was simply delicious! This dish would be perfect on top of any salad! Then for entree I had the grilled trout, while my husband had their Day-Boat fish, which was halibut. We both enjoyed our entrees very much! I actually needed a little help finishing my trout because it was a huge portion! HOWEVER, I still left a little room for dessert to share, which I believe was peach cobbler with a scoop of ice cream if I remember correctly. I do remember enjoying it! Great wine list too! Service was most excellent!! We look forward to coming back here!

    Myh wife and I had dinner this week at Farmstead Table, our first visit to the restaurant. Very pleasant decor, warmly greeted at the door for our early (5:30) seating, and Beth was our server. I enjoyed a very good Ale from Martha's Vineyard and enjoyed the crispy clams, while my wife savored the fresh, hot popover. We ordered fish entrees, mine was the Halibut, Kathleen the rainbow trout. Both dishes were tasty, fresh and delicious. Beth provided excellent service, and we will return.!

    The service was very good and the restaurant is very pleasant with a summer feel. The fried clam appetizer and soft shell crab appetizer were fabulous. The rib eye not so much. It appeared to be barely broiled and not grilled. Very disappointing. The half portion of the pasta entrée was ridiculously small. A mixed review.
