Great food, great service, great ambience. We visited the night we were in the LAX area before a departure the following day for a South American vacation. It was recommended to us by a friend in the LA. A real gem.

Great food but slow service tonight. It took almost 45 minutes for our food to arrive after ordering. The food was worth the wait however and I think they just got slammed. We will try again!

A favorite restaraunt!!
This place is such a find!! The food is fantastic, nice size portions, high-quality ingredients, interesting and tasty menu. The wines are wonderful. Great place to relax and enjoy great food and company. The servers go out of their way to make you feel at home and that you have everything you need. We went on Easter, got free appetizers, one dish came out wrong so they comped our dessert (which was amazing chocolate mousse). I was so impressed with how generous and thoughtful the server was. It was a wonderful night out with my family, and I'm definitely going back. Want to try out so many things on the menu.

Farm Stand is always a winner
Farm Stand is always a winner with their sumptuous menu that shows you don't have to sacrifice your taste buds to eat healthy. I order the Walnut Pomegranate Stew (with lamb, also available with chicken or portebello) and that plate of goodness filled me up! They accommodated our group of 5 very easily on the back patio, and everyone enjoyed what they had.

Food was good. Dessert took a long time and the apple crisp had flavoring that did not appeal to a traditional apple crisp lover. The table we had was by the kitchen where they were rolling table settings and was not the best. All in the party did enjoy their dinners.

I had an amazing lunch at Farm Stand. The Cote-du-rhone blanc paired perfectly with the caramelized brie starter. Topped with pistachios and I think caramelized onions with toasted baguette slices. My main course was the vegetarian pomegranate stew. Huge pieces of portabello mushrooms, zucchini, red peppers and hericote verts with basmati rice. I recommend this place to everyone who lives in El Segundo!

My new favorite
If you go for no other reason, go for the pomegranate stew with chicken. The lasagna was disappointing, a little dry. The ground chicken with rice was a nice surprise and I would order it again. Actually, there were so many choices that sounded good, it was hard for us to settle on 3 to share. Food choices with non-GMO food - why can't we eat like this all the time?

Ambience is fantastic. Food is terrific, but skimpy.. I plan to dine there again. Be sure to order their two bite yummiest.

Fits a healthy lifestyle
I love the small town feel of Main St. El Segundo, and the Farm Stand fits right in. We have always been greeted warmly at the door and promptly seated. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is somewhat eclectic with unique combinations but not so much that we can take our teenagers and they find something that appeals to them. The food is organic and non GMO, and everything reasonably priced! We really love this place and plan to keep coming back!

Great for a Book Club Meeting
My book club needed a foodie-related venue to discuss Michael Pollan's "Botany of Desire" and this proved to be the perfect venue. The table was set up to accommodate our group when we arrived and we had ample service and food. The menu selections were perfect for our discussion and were right within budget. Everyone had an enjoyable time.

Delicious vege fare
We had never been there, and we had a show to catch up the block within the hour. The service was prompt and accommodating and the two vege choices that we made were delicious. The portobellos over rice came in a wonderful pomegranate sauce. The penne was tangy hot. Loved the local brews on tap.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food is delicious. Extremely flavorful. I love the Talk of the Town walnut pomegranate stew with chicken - so tasty and tender. Steak is always wonderful. My husband really likes the urban lamb shank. Son likes the meatloaf. Have always enjoyed the dessert also, when we order it. Quality ingredients, always fresh. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommend.

We had dinner here on a Friday night. It was delicious. The favors from everything we had were just fantastic. The Brie appetizer was out of this world good! Everything was 5 stars!

Great choice in downtown 'Gundo
I had Mama's herbed ground chicken (reformed into a skewer), which is very flavorful and moist. The rice is also bursting with flavors and spices/berries & fruits. The roasted veggies and tomato were yummy - this dish has a distinctly Persian influence. My husband had the eggplant stew with beef. The beef was flavorful and very tender, and the sauce was spiced perfectly. Our friends had the veggie eggplant stew and Cornish game hen. I tried the Cornish and it was extremely moist and tender, and also full of flavor. It may have been cooked in a tandoori oven. Whatever they did, it was spot on. Nothing disappointed. A magician from Magic Castle is sometimes there (sounded cheesy) but he came to our table and we were all dumbstruck.

This is a neighborhood restaurant that gives large portions, of great tasting food, from a chef inspired menu and that is modestly priced. Choices are mildly towards the healthy/organic. The setting is simple, keeping with the Farm theme, with plenty of room. I our waitress was attentive, knowledgeable and helpful with food and wine selections. We learned later there is a patio in the rear. I highly recommend the Farm Stand and will return.

Where's the Naked Burger?
Our lunches were very good, but I was so sad that the Naked Burger is no longer on the menu. ESPECIALLY since it appears there is a similar option for a burger on a bun - I really think the chef could have done it for me with the parmesan fries, but the waitress was clueless and had never heard of the Naked Burger. BEST BURGER EVER - please bring it back.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was absolutely amazing. If you love modern american food, you will LOVE this place.

Fresh Flavorful Food
This is one of my favorite restaurants. Farm Stand emphasizes fresh food - farm to table, and the food is very flavorful. Our favorite items include Talk of the Town stew, filet mignon, meatloaf, Urban lamb shank, lemon turmeric chicken, and salmon. Great location - lovely, quiet main street in El Segundo. Parking is not hard to find with street parking and small parking lot on the side of restaurant (all free). Service is always very good. We have been to restaurant as a couple, 4 person or larger family, and most recently with a small group for a business dinner. Prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend.

A fresh and tasty lunch in
A fresh and tasty lunch in downtown El Segundo. The dishes are inventive and our group had trouble deciding what to choose. The wait staff was super friendly and helpful.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoyed the food. Had a business meeting, went inside thinking it would be the quietest place. Had to leave after lunch to hear a word the meeting was covering. Energetic, for sure. I would recommend the place for a fun lunch, and save negotiations for another venue. The salmon was amazing; Succulent and perfectly seasoned, with fluffy rice. The sour cherry drink was divine. Definitely a neighborhood gem.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Farm Stand is a great little neighborhood spot! The food was fresh and delicious. Lots of organic fare. Good for vegetarians and meat eaters alike!

A real delight!
After a wonderful organ concert and silent film at the nearby theater, a short walk through old town El Segundo took us to the Farm Stand. We were greeted and seated immediately and bread and water were provided. We ordered the roasted eggplant appetizer, which was incredibly good, with caramelized onions and capers. As it was happy hour, my Strand ale was $5 (wine was also available at that price). We then shared the chicken with walnuts and pomegranate, which was as good as at any Persian restaurant I've tried, and the lemon turmeric chicken, which was quite good, although slightly dry. The Basmati rice was perfectly prepared, and the preparation with dried cherries was outstanding,
They feature organic and non GMO food, very well made.

Charming neighborhood restaurant
We've dined here many times and the food has been consistently high quality. The menu is exciting with an international flare. The wait staff is always casual but professional. Ambience is perfect. We ordered 2 Persian stews and our Iranian friend who dined with us proclaimed they were the most authentic dishes he had eaten in years. We are vegans and the menu always offers many selections.

We have just moved into the neighborhood and are so pleased to have such a wonderful place as Farm Stand! The food was excellent (the lasagna was especially good). We have many friends with various dietary restrictions and it's great to have a place we can bring them. The quality and freshness of the food was outstanding. The service was attentive and friendly. The decor is charming and relaxed. A true neighborhood gem!

Farm Stand has so many healthy options, it makes me sorry I don't live in the area so I can go back often!! My friend has Celiac's and I have to watch fats/sodium; there were plenty of choices for both of us, all of them sounding great. We shared an entree; they split it for us and there was plenty of food for each of us. The service was excellent and the food was delicious!

For four of us lost on a Sunday evening the restaurant was a real find -- great for celebrating a birthday, enjoying good friends and being very comfortable with friendly service and a delightful meal.

Surprising find near LAX
Until I went to this restaurant, I didn't realize El Segundo had a downtown or a main street. This was a great find close to LAX. The food was very good and not the boring standard fare. When we went it was a weekday night so it was quiet. They have a nice side room that is good for a small-medium size group of 8-20.
The decor is art-y but makes for interesting viewing and conversation. Definitely not a restaurant that one would expect to find in El Segundo but well worth the trek to check out.

in love with farm stand
need more places like this in the world, an anti-chain with off the hook food!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Its a breath of fresh air and a great escape from the GMO food that is typically served in many restaurants. Comfortably small establishment that serves well prepared "farm to table" style cuisine. Fresh, vibrant and delectable food that leaves you yearning for more. This is a "must do" if you are remotely concerned with what you're consuming. Well done!!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious (and filling)
Entrees are tasty and substantial. For seniors, the servings are large ... next time I'll plan to take a box home.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh, healthy and flavor-filled
Thoroughly enjoyed dinner with 6 friends for a birthday. I tried the eggplant dip appetizer, nothing like babaanoush, - fresher and smoother. A friend and I split fish/Mahi and pumpkin ravioli - both excellent. Fish-perfect!
Desserts not very creative, not "to die for", which is my fussy criteria for dessert.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
My first visit to Farm Stand
Outstanding food and service. Will definitely return.

Totally enjoyed this place. We live in OK, and can't wait to come back!

Great local restaurant
The food at Farm Stand is first rate, and it is a wonderful place to have lunch near LAX. There is no airport noise, but it is a very short hop to the airport from this restaurant on Main Street in El Segundo.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great For Airport Rendez Vous!
We were meeting near the airport before my nephew's flight. VERY CONVENIENT for that.
We all enjoyed our meals. I had stuffed bell peppers - they had a Mediterranean flavor and were very filling and delicious. My nephew is a vegetarian and my son is a complete carnivore. There was something for everyone.
