    Went to the Farm House with too high expectations. The limited menu offered a very good kale salad and a good pork chop, but the sides were ridiculously salty. Far beyond flavorful. Craft beer selection was not up to coastal standards, wine list was OK. All in all, it was an overpriced, noisy, hurried meal, rather than the leisurely start to a pleasant evening.

    We had a great Nashville style dining experience. By Nashville style, I mean they had hot chicken on the menu but it was served upscale and extremely tasty with great sides. We had some interesting cocktails and never felt rushed in the dinner, but it was quite friendly. Good atmosphere, warm and welcoming, next door to the fancier Etch. I prefer this one and will be back.

    Five of us ate on a Friday night. The food is mostly all local and really good. I had pan seared catfish which was good, but not $25 good. Wife had the farm plate, a bunch of interesting vegetables which she loved. Friend had the bison steak which was extremely tender and good since it was served quite rare (but you have to do bison rare, else it's like rubber); not sure it was worth $32. We had a few local beers and shared a couple of deserts and the total bill for 5 was $300. FYI - this is a very casual place, the servers wear jeans and western shirts.

    I was very pleased with the meal I was served at The Farm House. The fresh vegetable plate is perfect for vegetarians because you receive the special sides and get to select two sides from the regular list. It was nice to have a choice and not just get whatever vegetables the kitchen had on hand. The service wasn't amazing... our server wasn't very attentive and was actually laughing over our heads with another server but it was the start of a Friday night so maybe they were bored. Pro tip: go with valet parking - the price of the lot is ridiculous!

    The food was not as good as expected. The service and ambiance was great, but my porkchop was tough. The wine we ordered was not available after we ordered it. They don't have the basic liquors, like Bailey's available. For the cost, I don't believe I will return.

    I was visiting Nashville with some of my family and Farm House had been recommended to me by a friend who lives in Nashville. We had a 7:45 reservation and arrived early and sat at the bar for a drink. Bartender was friendly and created a special drink for me since I didn't know what I wanted. Yummy. We were called to our table on time and once seated greeted quickly by our server. Food choices were mainly centered around meat dishes. We ordered within a short time and then waited …and waited… by the time we ate we were one of the two or three tables seated. Even when we ordered there were few tables seated so I'm not sure why the wait was so long. Food was small portions and overpriced. Quality was just ok. Would not go back.

    The food, service, and experience were all great, but the only complaint I have is that the spaghetti squash with my bison dish I was really not a fan of. Maybe it's because I've only had spaghetti squash a few times, maybe it was the pesto, but it tasted just really really planty, like I was eating grass. I ended up just eating around it (the bison, bacon, tomato were great!) but I was just slightly disappointed in that. Everything else was very good

For an appetizer we had the pork belly - Charred scallion pancake, Steens, 62 egg, cracklings, onion ash For entrees, I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the pork dish. Both were fabulous! This is place is not just a restaurant but it is a total experience!! They prepare the food scientifically and it is savory, tender and fabulous!!!

    Great decor, reclaimed wood, loved the valet parking but the food - ehhhh! We went there for breakfast and felt ripped off paying $4.00 for eggs and $5.00 for biscuits (the jelly tasted homemade and was awesome). Waitress acted so bothered to fill up our coffee and provide cream. It is a cute place but nothing notable.

    Enjoyed the eclectic menu and had an awesome server. Fell short with not serving my husband a desert for his 40th birthday...which I had requested in the special instructions when I made the reservation. Also we ordered an 18 oz cut ribeye and it was cold in the center. They did re-fire it, but came back out just about the same. We ate it anyway. Had good flavor and presentation was great. Just not as thrilled with the whole experience. We were informed that one of the main investors was dining near us and she was pointed out. Perhaps the chef was consumed by getting her food perfect.

    We try to eat mostly organic and all natural and it is hard to find so we were thrilled to find this restaurant to have healthy places to go out to eat. The bison entree was amazing - the others wish they had ordered it. The rib eye steak was just okay, as was the chicken fried -- three of us wanted it so they suggested splitting because the other entree the waiter mentioned which sounded amazing was not available after they told us about it. The biscuit was amazing, the skillet cornbread just so so. The service was great. The noise level was very loud - hard to talk over it and we were doing a birthday dinner with my parents so hard for them to hear.

    FH is a nice addition to the Nashvegas restaurant scene but for the price there are much better options. This is one of those places where one or two courses may wow u but the others are just pedestrian. Pretty limited menu selection but farm to table can be that way. Wine list is nice but markups seem hefty especially among the lower priced wines. But it is worth trying a least once. Service was very friendly but a bit overbearing on the upsell. All in easy to spend $100 per person...not rushing back

    We took our great aunt here who cooks everything from scratch and very rarely eats out because she believe's it is not healthy to do so. At 86, Aunt Louise may have a point. Let me say she ate everything on her plate and said it was delicious. I wanted to try dessert, but our aunt had a homemade coconut pie at home so we skipped dessert. We enjoy eating out, but are always looking for healthy options! This was Great! And it passed the Aunt Louise Test!!

    I enjoy the Farmhouse. It is pricey, but on a recent date with the mother of my children, we shared an appetizer and a salad. Satisfied with one drink , we both had excellent main courses. I get this idea of farm to table and sometimes you don't get to have the lamb you loved the last visit and have to go with the trout. I like making reservations and allotting 90 minutes to 2 hours savoring a meal and the company I keep. Everything is always well plated and served with efficiency.

    We were seated promptly with our reservation--but the worst tale in the house, right in front of the service door to kitchen and hallway to the bath. They really should not even have a table in this spot--but like most places cram every possible table in. Food selections were varied and interesting without being so out-there that few want to "go-there". They could use maybe one more choice in each category- menu is limited. The craft cocktail selection was very good. Their source local and American-made is clear, however their US choices for wine were not stellar considering the great options the US has to offer. One in our party sets the standard by the chef's Shrimp and Grits, this is now his favorite in Nashville.

    I have dined at the Farm House 3 times now. Two times for brunch and one time for dinner. All three times were excellent. For brunch, I highly recommend their eggs benedict. For dinner, we had a sampling of their appetizers, all were very good. For dinner, we all tried something different. Catfish, Trout, Shrimp and Grits, Chicken. Everyone raved about their entrees. Two people had a side dish of fried okra and it was excellent coated in panko bread crumbs. Although we were full, we had to taste the desserts. Once again, we were treated to delicious and creative food. We would all go back again and again.

    We had a reservation and still had to wait to be seated when there were many tables available. The Brunch menu was simple and made it easy to order but one of the sides was served cold we had to ask to warm it up The food is good, the french fries were deliciously salted and crispy. we could have used a bit more attention from the waiter who seemed to be hurrying from table to table, but he was nice enough to bring us a new biscuits and gravy.

    I recently dined at Rhubarb's in Asheville, NC. Farmhouse pricing and atmosphere were very similar. Rhubarb's was just featured in Southern Living this month. I can honestly say that Farmhouse food was better, atmosphere better and service much better than Rhubarb's. I ride the Music City Star daily and pass by the Farmhouse every afternoon on the way to the train. Friends are always commenting on how good the food is. I agree. The food was excellent. I've lived in Mt Juliet for four years and this is the first opportunity we have had to visit Nashville on a "date night". Usually we have someone with us that wants to go to a location they choose. Due to pricing, I will probably not bring them to farmhouse. Special occasion only.

    I've enjoyed Farm House for dinner several times and decided to take a client for lunch. We were not disappointed. The lunch menu has things that look like a bologna sandwhich, a hot dog, catfish and the like, as well, as shrimp and grits. Plus much more. It is all handmade and all wonderful - not anything like the baloney sandwhich I took to school for lunch as a kid. You'll enjoy.

    The four of us ate here on a Saturday night, after snagging reservations a few days before. Easy valet parking. Small entrance and bar area. They have a lot of moonshine drinks on the menu. Vibe is relaxed but noisy. The menu lists 4 or 5 starters- we liked the pork belly with scallion pancakes and soft-boiled egg very much. More variable were the dinners- vegetarian plate was quite disappointing and nothing at all special. Hot chicken was tasty but dry. Shrimp and grits was good but not great. Best dish was the pork chop, which came with a grain sausage and a yummy mix underneath. Prices were about average for Nashville. Overall a good experience.
