Made my Birthday even more SPECIAL!
This was a surprise Dinner planned by my Husband & I'd say the best ever :) I've never seen any restaurant being so perfect in all the dishes they serve. Not the least, but the presentation of each entree is equally amazing!!!
Also, the time taken to get our order was just adequate, not too late not fast..so in time. Perfect!!
All I can say is, its the best place to be with for a Perfect Romantic Dinner...But remember, don't rush & take it easy...Its worth million visits :)

My group and I were so pleased
My group and I were so pleased that we were able to sit in a private room for dinner. The food on the new spring menu was delicious. The only problem that we had was that all of the hot entrees came out together, but my seared tuna salad took 10 minutes longer. I think that they forgot to make it. It was a pretty annoying to have to sit and watch the others eat, and mine was the cold item! In the end, I would probably go back again.

Fabulous overall, the only
Fabulous overall, the only reason service got a 4 is the assistant waiter was not very polished. Interupted our conversation with out saying excuse me and when pointing to the cheese and meat appitizer on the dish to explain what the variety of cheeses and meats were his finger touched some of them. And the entrees were mixed up which isn't a big deal. I look forward to going there again in the near future.

Great venue for a one on one business meeting. The food and service are top flight plus the atmosphere was perfect for conversation.

The food was delicious! I am having my wedding and rehersal at Normandy Farm next year! This place is absolutely fabulous and the staff was warm and welcoming! I would recommend The Farmer's Daughter to anyone who wanted to have a delicious meal!

We'll be back
There were seven in our lunch group and each was delighted with her menu choice. The management was able to accommodate our request for a round table, the service was excellent and the fresh flower centerpieces were beautiful. This is definitely a "return visit" place.
5/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food...we went for brunch. Great atmosphere. The only other thing I have to say is that I brought my 4 year old (we-behaved) nephew with me and they gave him his apple juice in a wine glass! Therefore, the Farmer's Daughter is NOT kids friendly.

Food outstanding! Service
Food outstanding! Service very good! Ambience lovely! However, was surprised to see a tip and "service charge" added to our check for a party of 4 people. This is not in line with other establishments and I found the amount to be excessive for a brunch buffet vs a waitered meal.. I fully expect gratuity to be added for parties of 6 or more but not for less. I brought it to the hostess' attention and she removed the charge. Interesting to note the table next to us with a party of four was also dismayed as the gratuity was added to theirs also.

Good food, excellent service, quiet elegant atmosphere, highly recommended

Fabulous Sunday brunch
This was my second time having Sunday brunch here. I recommended it to friends who I treated for a special occasion. Everyone was happily impressed. We drove out there from Center City Philadelphia, which is a good 45 minute trip, but it's scenic and well worth the expenditure of time and gas. The assortment of foods was outstanding and the quality superb. It is presented very appealingly. The cost was about half of what it would in the city for a comparable culinary experience.

Perfect Spot for Special Occassion
Wanted to make my friend's birthday special, and everything was as wonderful as I remembered from my other visits. Never a disappointment. The wine list is a treat, specialty beers, too. Eclectic local cheeses and meats were a perfect start, and the main courses were a delight.
6/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband referred to this place as "solid." The food was good. No complaints at all; however we weren't gushing over anything, except for the lobster & corn chowder. We weren't moved to talk about the food. The service was excellent! Friendly and welcoming staff. Great spot for a quick romantic dining experience out if you don't have enough time to go to downtown Philly for a foodie experience.

This is a nice place I just
This is a nice place I just wish for these prices they would be a little more adventurist with the food.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really a great deal for brunch. For the price, you can't beat it. Selection is varied and quality of food is excellent. There's a selection of typical breakfast and lunch items; salad, cheese, fruit, bagels/fixings and fish stations; a made-to-order waffle and egg station, and a wonderful dessert table. The waiters offer continuous drink refills, and service is prompt and courteous. We really enjoy visiting for brunch. The only down side is that it can get pretty crowded sometimes, and unfortunately, the other patrons are not always as courteous as the staff. Would definitely recommend brunch at the Farmer's Daughter.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Father's Day brunch!
Great food and service, friendly staff. We'll do it again next year!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food great, service excellent, a little noisy because of party next door; waitress exceptional
6/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
food was very good, not the best i've ever had but very good. Chilean sea bass was cooked well, but just seemed to be lacking something. Not a lot of flavor in the tomato based orzo. Short ribs are great, flat breads were good! . Brussel sprouts were under cooked and hard as a rock. Overall the menu just isn't all that exciting to me but still a good solid place to have a nice dinner.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food plus good service
While the menu was not extensive, it offered a nice variety of dining options. Our party of three had three different meals and each diner rated their meal as very good to excellent. Service was very good as well.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything about this restaurant
Everything about this restaurant was great. The food is phenomenal, service is top notch, and drink selection offers a good variety of beers and wines. I went with my parents and fiance this past week and everyone is still commenting on how great the food is. Will definitely be returning here!

Birthday Brunch celebration
Staff was cordial and accommodating from booking, table request and excellent waiter service . Custom omlettes were great, as was the variety of breads and pastries, French toast, shrimp, oysters and crisp bacon. Enjoyed variety of beverages. Only issue was with a 1:00 reservation, they had already run out of some of the offerings including lox. Decor is lovely. Overall excellent and enjoyable experience.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
A lovely setting in Bluebell
While the focus is typically on groups and other events, we were delighted with the ambiance, food and service at the Farmers Daughter. We both had fish, a crusty salmon and a seabass, which were well prepared and presented. The pear cobbler with cinnamon ice cream was a tasty way to end the meal.
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Farmer's Daughter gave 2 ladies a chance to relax and to recharge our batteries before going back to work. We'll do it again!
6/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been to the Farmer's Daughter a few times for brunch and lunch. I have never been disappointed. Food is always fresh, hot and well prepared. Brunch has a varied selection of hot and cold foods as well as fruits and pastries that my family jump at. Staff is very attentive and professional. Would recommend this place to everyone. Also appears like a great place to stage a big event or wedding.
7/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were there on the same night as a wedding party. I thought they were a little loud in the gathering area. But when they went to their banquet room, it got quieter.
My food was really good, but I thought a little pricey.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
this was my husband's 73 birthday dinner - and the food was wonderful !! overall a very nice experience!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the detour
We were staying 30 minutes away from this dining location. Still, when locals recommended it for a dining experience, our little group decided to take the adventure. Our directions even took a detour but we found our way to the Farmers Daughter and enjoyed a delicious meal with big city flare and local fare.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I love this place. Great food, drinks, and service. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because my husband didn't have the best cut of meat, but enjoyed his dinner none the less.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our luncheon from beginning to end was perfect. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful.
Thank you for a memorable time. We can't wait to do it again.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was great and so was the food. Our 1 year old loved the fresh fruit. Cold shrimp were plentiful and tasty. Made to order omelettes and a great assortment of hot and cold foods.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our party of four enjoyed the abundant variety of foods, all prepared and displayed beautifully. Our servers (there seemed to be a swarm of them) were perfect. The service was notably wonderful. Can't wait to go back.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful place for dinner
I took my husband to the Farmer's Daughter

En route to to'very good...'
This restaurant is a 'find' especially for those who visited some years ago and decided never to return. The improvement is impressive - and I assume it will continue. The food was good and creatively presented and while the service could stand some upgrading, it was overall a good experience and I have already booked a return visit.
I do think, however, that there is room for improvement with the service - on our last visit, it was slow and I even had to get up and flag down a waiter. However, we enjoyed the experience and I am bringing back a party today already.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The steaks were exceptionally good and well worth the price. Liked the vegetables - but could be more . Dessert selection needs improvement. What's wrong with a few old standbys- like apple pie, good chocolate cake, etc. Service was excellent and the ambience great.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A beautiful brunch
What a lovely surprise! The "french countryside" ambiance is lovely and the brunch is excellent. There are so many choices and all of them beautifully prepared and presented. I'm particularly found of brunch and have had a lot of nice experiences, thankfully not too many bad ones. The Farmer's Daughter is head and shoulders above the rest of the crowd.

Best Brunch Ever
You would be hard pressed to find a better brunch.
8/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
The staff were super accomodating
I had to change the # of persons in our reservation three times over two days and in the end we were given the nice round table in the center of the room for our celebration. In the future, I won't put myself through that many changes again but the staff were wonderful.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a wonderful hidden gem in Blue Bell. Great place for a Sunday Brunch. The quality and preparation of the food and service is wonderful. You never feel rushed and the wait staff and hostess are attentive without being overbearing.
There are so many choices on the brunch menu and all are well prepared. It's a comfortable venue. The lighting and searing are very comfortable and it's very easy to carry on a conversation without being drowned out by surrounding diners.
This visit was to celebrate two birthdays and an anniversary. This was our second visit we will definitely be coming back.

Great Customer Service
Ambience was nice (went on a Sunday evening so not too busy). Customer service was excellent. Food was excellent. Pace was very nice--not too fast and not too slow.

We were there in Apr for brunch to celebrate my birthday and came back because everything was absolutely delicious!
We also wanted to see what the grounds, flowers,plants and greens all looked like since we will be there next Sept. for our daughters wedding!! The whole entire place is absolutely gorgeous! The food is spectacular! The atmosphere is just breathtaking! We are so excited to have such a wonderful place for our daughter to marry her best friend!

I enjoy the comfortable atmosphere as well as the very fresh/flavorful aray of food. Listening to the group getting seated next to us, I heard the "review" that I just said to my husband...I've tried brunch other places, but this is by far the best. It is a special treat and I look forward to returning. Always good quality and the coffee was very good too!!!

Great place great food
I went here on a Sunday evening for dinner with my family. It was not a busy night so it was very quiet. The food was fantastic. The portions were just the right size, not too much not too little. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgable about the menu, and attentive without hovering.
My only complaint is that the desserts were tiny. I'm talking literally bite size. While this is perfect for if we each ordered our own, we ordered several to share among us and even mentioned that to the waitress. If she'd told us how small the desserts were we not have done that.
