- Will ReturnOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/25/2014Some Friends of ours put us on to Farro's a few months ago. Since then we have been back three or four times and have always had good service and friendly staff. The food has been consistently good without being pretentious. The staff has been attentive without being interfering with our meal. Farro's deserves a chance from anyone looking for a pleasurable dining experience and a menu that is a little above the ordinary. It is without a doubt that we will return to to Farro'sSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Service Not as Good as Last VisitOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 10/5/2014Food has always been consistently good here, but service this visit was not up to par. Restaurant was very full, so service was very slow and we felt we were being a burden every time we asked the waitress for something. We will still definitely go back as it is one of favorite local places.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great night!5kdsDined on 10/4/2014Wonderful birthday evening last weekend, the servers were awesome and the food great. My favorite is always the Seafood Farro and we all loved the sizzling shrimp. My daughter's Cat Tree birthday cake complete with stuffed catnip toys was served with a terrific sense of humor by the wait staff. Very classy on their part. Thank you all!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food and Service!CoNative21Dined on 9/27/2014The food was delicious and the service was awesome. My wife and I ordered the specials which were reasonably priced. our waiter knew the menu inside and out and was able to recommend/explain menu items. The know-it-all rater below named "Open table diner since 2010" must be used to eating his 6 year old's kraft mac and cheese...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

Nightly specials are always fantastic!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pig Fest -- not to be missedmsreDined on 8/31/2014What a treat to spend Labor Day Sunday eating roast pig. We wish that we had seen all 84 pounds of it when it emerged from the roaster. It was absolutely delicious, perfectly paired with white beans and aromatic salsa. Finishing with fresh peaches topped with burrata made a perfect holiday meal. Wines were delicious and so well priced that we had another glass after we finished the bottle. Our service, from the bus boy to the well informed server, was attentive and made us feel like we were in good hands. It was nice to see Farro so successful, and we wish we lived closer. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.Special Features:
- Great Dining ExperienceVVWDAWVIPDined on 8/30/2014We enjoy dining here because each entree is well prepared. There's always a nice twist to what could be a rather common recipe. I always start with the spinach salad and often order the Chicken Marsala. My husband likes the pork tenderloin. Even the two kinds of bread that they serve are tasty. The strip mall location and simple decor may not please everybody, but we keep coming back for the fantastic food.Special Features:
- KrissyDined on 8/30/2014What can I say, the food and service are always great. Have Never hada bad experience at Farro. Great neighborhood gem
- Fantastic!RicardoDined on 8/29/2014Farro has the best service of any restaurant I have been to in a very long time. The Calimari was the best I have ever tasted and the prices were reasonable.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Another Lovely EveningeatoutalotVIPDined on 8/24/2014This is a great little neighborhood spot. Everything from "red sauce" Italian to more elevated and inspired items. Don't miss the seafood "Farro" or the Flat Iron sliced with gorgonzola butter. Excellent and reasonably priced selections! And the Yukon gold potatoes all nice and crispy, sliced in half which are worthy of a meal on their own. Great, friendly service where they recall your favorites and recognize you as family after only a visit or two.Special Features:
- Inexpensive Consistent Italian FoodFoodieJanVIPDined on 8/23/2014We have been going to Farro since they opened. If you go on the weekend make a reservation to avoid a wait. Matthew has quite a few regular customers including our family. We each have our favorite appetizers that are meant to be shared but I usually take mine to go and reheat it the next day for lunch because I love the eggplant & portabella fries with spicy marinara. (Reheats well on a stone in the oven.) My husband and daughter like the firecracker shrimp and my son orders the mussels. For entrees Matthew often has specials, including fresh fish. There are many items on the menu that we enjoy but his specials are always very good as well. He creates different things based on availability (fish, lamb, etc.)Special Features:
- Tried Something NewwgwghwVIPDined on 8/22/2014Tried the specials - roasted cauliflower salad and sole. Another outstanding meal. Highly recommend!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Worth the tripLudlowDined on 8/22/2014We arrived on a busy Friday night and were seated immediately. Impressed with menu choiices. Wait staff seemed a little overloaded but the manager stepped in to help. Food and presentation were very good. A little noisy, but we'll be back.Special Features:

- Extremely enjoyable experienceneighborhoodfoodieDined on 8/12/2014Farro has been a great addition to our neighborhood and we are extremely fortunate to have a chef of Matt Franklin's caliber here. The service is excellent and attentive and accommodating. Recently we were there with another couple and we did take more time than usual before we ordered our meals and the server was patient and willing to let us take our time that evening. I had a prosciutto-wrapped shrimp appetizer on a bed of greens that was excellent and ordered the Chicken Marsala which was also excellent with a very tasty and well-balanced sauce. I have ordered over half the dishes on the menu and have found them to all be well-prepared and very enjoyable.Special Features:
