Diner Reviews
  • "Everything was delicious except for the watermelon salad because we did not care for the New Zealand spinach - really thick,chewy and strong tasting. But from cocktails to dessert everything else was perfect. Loved the whole experience and will definitely return."

  • "My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this place while looking around the neighborhood where we were staying. Luckily, they were able to get us in for dinner at an outdoor table. We sat under an adorable little tree at the most romantic little table. All the people in the back garden seemed to be as happy as we were. Amazing food -- corn gnocchi was to die for! And they had tons of local wines -- all were delicious. We went back on our last day to grab a quick bite before heading to the airport. In a city of amazing food, Farm Cafe is really worth visiting!"

  • "First, this I'd not a place for kids, no kids menu, but the staff were great with coming up with alternatives for them. My meal (goat cheese ravioli) was fantastic. Interesting happy hour appys and cocktails. Dinner portions are small but affordable and interesting."

  • "I wanted to treat a vegetarian friend to a gourmet meal, and the Farm Café gave us just the kind of creative and superbly cooked dishes we wanted. It all started with the mushrooms and herb appetizer, which was beyond good -- such interesting flavors that each bite was an experience. It continued with beet salad with goat cheese and butter lettuce salad with blue cheese before moving on to interesting preparations of seared tuna and goat cheese ravioli. The service was great. When one of our entrees was late, the restaurant took the dish off our bill. The ambience was also great -- homey and fancy at the same time, in a very old Victorian house."

  • "My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Farm Cafe. The outdoor patio was especially lovely once the outdoor lights were turned on. I recommend the corn gnocchi and the Joc-a-mo, a chartreuse-based cocktail."

  • "We had a group of nine, assembled for a reunion, and were very happy with the choice. We'd dined there as a group a couple of years ago, and that had gone well. Once again, The Farm was ready for our arrival and served us well, and the food was excellent. It was a great choice. Highly recommend ...."

  • "The atmosphere was informal and casual where people could bring young children to dine in the outdoor patio area, it was a perfect evening to enjoy dinner at the Farm Café. The menu is limited but a few choices were outstanding which included the fries and clam and zucchini fritters as appetizers and the trout for the main entre was delicious. There is very limited parking (5) but parking in the neighborhood is not a problem if you dine early."

  • "I dined on the patio with a friend. The ambience was wonderful. Nicely spaced tables, perfect amount of lighting. Wonderful al fresco feel. The food was delicious. Kale and fennel salad. Wonderful. Goat cheese ravioli. Amazing. Chocolate soufflé. Best dessert I've ever had. The staff was very welcoming and efficient. We were not rushed and nor did the service languish. This was a perfect dining experience."

  • "Farm was recommended by a Portlander - what a wonderful suggestion! We had an amazing dinner with excellent service. It was a warm summer night, so we sat outside on the back patio. We will definitely go back when we next visit Portland."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Beautiful interior, wonderful ambience, and mouth-watering menu. Only problem is the menu items sound perfect on paper, but actual execution was underwhelming. Everything we ordered sounded tastier than it turned out to be. Service was casual and unobtrusive almost to the point of feeling indifferent and entrees took quite a while to arrive. We were seated at 6:15, had to rush hurry to get our check by 7:15, with gap of 45 minutes from ordering to entree delivery (30 minutes post-salad)."

  • "We have brought two sets of friends visiting from out of state, and Farm has not disappointed. Great place to taste the flavor of local, seasonal, Pacific-Northwest style cuisine."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Dinner on a Thursday night; servers, food, atmosphere, top notch. Trout and ratatouille great taste and presentation, killer hazelnuts. Wine specials a hit. Easy to get to, folks, just jump on that streetcar and dare to walk all of 3 blocks. Oh, and follow up over the road at the Burnside Brewery. Go!"

  • "My wife and I found our food to be too salty. Maybe it's just our taste since we rarely put salt on our food. But 2 out of the three dishes we ordered were a bit salty for our preference. Maybe the chef had an off-night so if we are in town again, I may give Farm another shot."

  • "I forgot how great this little gem was. it has been in Portland fora while and the menu has not changed because it is amazing!!!! The raviolis are still out of this world as well as the mushrooms appetizer and the lamb and pasta. Of course, the chocolate soufflé is a must! outdoor sitting awesome on Summer night. really, you don't get much better! And the service was excellent."

  • "All in all I was pleased. The food was good, the servers were ever present, maybe too much, but then when I asked for salt I never got it. Love the local menu!"

  • "We were at the Farm Cafe in 2009 and were impressed by the imaginative use of seasonal local ingredients. Farm Cafe continues to impress. Food was great as was the service. We especially enjoyed the baked brie with local berries and the trout entree. The restaurant was somewhat lacking in ambience. Like many Portland restaurants it is in an old house an is a bit run-down. We were near the entrance so the decibel level was high. We'd definitely return."

  • "Nice outdoor dining. Good selection for vegetarians but with a nod for meat eaters. Very fresh ingredients in the dishes we tried. We would go again."

  • "Starter white bean and spinach spread solid...ditto for Brie with berries ...zucchini fritters were bready good but not extraordinary. Nice crusty bread. Superior Idaho trout, mushroom risotto, veggie burger. Nice ambience. Superb bread pudding, even better raspberry sorbet."

  • "Went to Farm for an early dinner on a Tuesday. My friend and I met at the Farm about 2 years ago. So it was fun to meet there again. It was perfect for a visit because the food was so yummy and fresh and because we could visit without much noise. Also since my first visit I am now on a low fat Vegan diet. There were several choices which was great. Because we ate during happy hour, we had most of the plates and the soup. All were just yummy. They had vegan food i could eat and my friend had the dishes with cheese. Along with the nice wine list we couldn't have been happier. It was not expensive. Finally, the staff was excellent. They were friendly, knew menu ingredients well, were respectful and there when needed."

  • "Went with a some buddies to get some fancy dinner before we saw TJ Miller at 10pm on a Friday night. Prices were reasonable. Everything was delicious. We really went for it getting apps, salads, entrees and dessert along with alcohol and coffee. We had a big bill, but it was worth it."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The superlative reviews for this restaurant are warranted. The chef seeks out and local and seasonal ingredients, a new to me at least variety of lettuce, for example, and local lake trout, appeared in dishes I ordered, complemented with good local wines, attentive service, all packaged in an old house with a patio - if not raining. The atmosphere, including the open kitchen is relaxed. One is in good hands."

  • "We tried many restaurants in the Portland, Vancouver area. Farm Cafe and one other restaurant were great in all aspects."

  • "The food here hasn't disappointed yet. From their appetizers of Brie and bread to sautéed mushrooms and entrees of gnocchi and veggie burgers all were well prepared and savory. If you are in the area I would definitely recommend going here for delicious food and quiet/ambient atmosphere."

  • "We decided to opt for outside seating. While waiting for our table we sat at the bar and enjoyed a yummy concoction created by their friendly barkeep. We dined outside and enjoyed every morsel of our meal."

  • "Food was unwhelming but still good - but the cost was greater than it should have been for what we got."

  • "Liked the ambiance and decor of the place. The lamb was terrific. Other members had rockfish, veggie burger, and mushroom risotto and all were good. Had a good bottle of wine. The cobbler could have used a few more peaches, but we were early in the season. Easy to drive by the place if you aren't watching closely, the part of the building facing the street is small. Overall a great find and had a great time!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Made early dinner reservations. We were greeted warmly, promptly seated and immeadiately comfortable. Four adults were nearly overwhelmed by four entrees. Be sure to order a house made coctail, made with locally distilled spirits, and you must try the deviled eggs!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Last minute decision to go out, checked out Farm Cafe on Open Table, found a reservation. Great evening for sitting outside, seated at a quiet table in the corner of the patio. Started with appetizers (sauteed mushrooms, and the smoked salmon deviled eggs), followed by kale and fennel salad, all delicious! The entrees were equally good, the Idaho trout was perfectly prepared, and the grilled vegetables perfectly al dente. Accompanied by a wine feature, a gamay noir with a wonderful character. Service was impeccable, and just the way we like it, present but never in your face. Thanks for a wonderful evening!"

  • "The staff was super friendly. We were able to sit out on thee patio which was perfect for a summer night. Ambience was pleasant, warm, and not too noisy. I ordered the risotto which although flavorful, was too hot for me to eat. It tasted like chili peppers, but not sure. The butter leaf salad was prepared lovely, but w/ way too much pepper. It was also difficult to eat. I would say in general they use an over abundance of salt and seasoning. The other entrees were good, but not so good that we have to return."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "This place is wonderful. The food is one-of-a-kind and just amazing. The wine list was well thought-out and unique. Service was really slow, but the great atmosphere of the patio made up for it. We obviously say outside, but inside was great, too! Just awesome."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We were four people and enjoyed the fact that while the restaurant was busy, it was quiet enough to converse. One of our appetizers was the herbed mushrooms, which were superb. All the food was tasty and well prepared and service was pleasant and attentive. Our only disappointment was that although lamb is considered a specialty and some of us had planned to order it, it was all gone by the time our order was taken. We had booked a relatively early reservation...6:15, and felt that this shouldn't have happened."

  • "The food was outstanding and quite reasonably priced, as was the wine. I loved the asparagus ravioli. There were some issues with my service, but the staff was apologetic about it and they were very friendly as they resolved it. It still made for a wonderful dinner."

  • "This place continues to produce after a decade and more in business. Solid service and great, select and delicious menu. Fresh food. Vibrant, happy crowd in the nostalgic old farmhouse made it perfectly fine to drink off the great wine list and soak in the ambiance while we waited for our table. I've been a fan since you opened and I'm glad to see the spirit remains sweet and yet affordable. Thank you Farm."

  • "This is the second time I have been to the Farm Cafe--this time as a special occasion for Father's Day. I love the ambience of this place--old houses that have been converted to restaurants always have a particular charm that makes for a very comfortable dining experience. Their food is so lovely and pairs flavors very nicely. The duck with fresh pea spaetzle was divine, the beet carpaccio salad and kale fennel salad were perfect, and the ramps pesto on the salmon is something I will have to try to recreate on my own. And of course the wine list is fantastic. I was sad we didn't leave room for dessert. The service was great even on such a busy weekend, and I will look forward to finding another occasion to visit the Farm Cafe."
