  • "Very good seasonal food prepared well - always a sure bet"

  • "Great place for a datenight. I love the atmosphere.....a little loud, but it wasn't too bad. More happy/boisterous than annoying. The food was A-MAZING. Every last bit."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Had never been to this River Market gem but what we have been missing! From cocktails to peach bread pudding the meal was flawless! Get the fried green tomatoes and beet salad which are untouchable to anywhere else. And if you like fried chicken it doesn't get any better than this! 3 huge pieces over a slice of melon dressed with kale! WoW! Short ribs beyond compare and finish it off with the peach bread pudding and French press coffee and you have cleared your bucket list! Will keep going back since there was such a great feeling in such a historic area!!"

  • "This is one of my all time favorite places in KC! The good is ALWAYS good, I've never had a bad meal. I love coming for brunch on Saturdays, they always have solid options. Dinner is also delicious, the hanger steak and short ribs are to die for! You can't go wrong with any of their cocktails either, greyhound with brunch and a shady lady with dinner is the way I like to go! I would recommend making a reservation before you go, it can get crowded!"

  • "The food is fabulous but the customer service is seriously lacking at the Farmhouse. It is the second time I have visited the restaurant. The women's bathroom was filthy and when I notified the young man at the front desk he acted liked he could care less. This same young man was walking through the restaurant and we asked him if we could get an extra coffee cup. Our server could not be found. He promptly told us he did not wait on tables and walked off."

  • "Our waitress was wonderful! We started off with the cheese platter appetizer. When asked how we liked it, we told her we didn't like one of the cheeses, so she brought out another choice! Throughout our entire dining experience, we were bothered by several flies. In fact, I killed at least 6 that were hovering around our table. We were told it could have been from having the patio open, however, she also stated the restaurant sets traps for them nightly. She offered to move us to another table, but we declined as we were not guaranteed the flies would not be at another table. The food was wonderfully prepared. We received a free rum cake dessert as we were celebrating my birthday. It was excellent, however, we will not be back."

  • "So glad we had a reservation as the restaurant turned away walk-ins. Food was great! Get the eggs benedict or the french toast. Decor was very nice with its exposed brick walls. Our waitress was very accommodating and made sure everything was good for us. The Farmhouse was the perfect place for a great brunch after shopping at the City Market, but make sure you have a reservation."

  • "My husband and I like Farmhouse. In the past we have celebrated our birthdays and anniversary. This weekend our good friend wanted to take us out for dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday. My husband gladly chose to go to the Farmhouse. But we were seated near the bar and did not have a good time because it was so loud that we couldn't even hear each other. The loud noise is not energetic at all. I was really looking forward to have a nice time with our friend (who we don't see often) and celebrate my husband's birthday but we ended up feeling annoyed with the noise. I really wanted to leave before we order but decided to stay for my husband and our friend. It will take me some time to want to go back there."

  • "This was our second visit to The Farmhouse. The food is fantastic - really, some of the best I've ever had - both times! Everything is locally grown, and the dishes are fun and flavorful. Try the cocktails, too, they are made with fresh juices and are also creative. Delicious! The service this time was wonderful. I am telling everyone I know to try this place!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "When I made the reservation I specifically requested a high chair as there were 6 adults and 1 baby. When we got seated I again asked for a high chair. I was told to ask the server so I would get it quicker. I'm not sure what that meant, but I asked the server as soon as she came over for drink orders. When she came back with drinks I asked again. When she came back to take food oders I asked again. We never got the high chair. Instead, the adults took turns holding the baby so his parents could eat their food. On top of never getting the high chair, we were never checked on; drinks went unfilled and the possibility of us ordering more food or drinks went away. The sad part is that the food was pretty good; but not worth the poor service."

  • "I went Saturday morning, had reservations and sat outside. I ordered an Irish coffee and Italian hash, my friend had an Irish coffee and corned beef hash. The food was excellent! I received my bill and it totaled $110! I went inside the restaurant and told them the food was good, but not that good! The gave me a new bill, and it included my friend's Irish coffee, which she had already paid for. They then corrected that bill, and gave me a small discount for my inconvenience. I looked at my bank account online, and have two pending amounts to the Farmhouse, one for my bill, and one for twice my bill. I'm hoping this pending amount goes away, otherwise I'm going to have to try to get my money back. I would pay my next bill with cash"

  • "Love this restaurant that uses only local produce. Very tasty."

  • "Had dinner on the patio with a friend, food was great as was the service. We sat for a couple of hours and talked, the waitress checked on us but let us sit as long as we wanted. It was a great night to sit outside, felt more like we were at a home than a restaurant."

  • "Love this place for brunch before heading to the River Market area. Food is so fresh and the coffee is the BEST!!"

  • "Treated my mom to a breakfast at the Farmhouse for our first time dining there. We made a 9:00 am reservation (recommended) which is when they open on Saturdays. There were four other groups waiting to get in along with us, some had reservations, others didn't. We were all greeted by a friendly host and seated quickly. There are a lot of choices on the the menu that sound delicious. I ordered the Earl of Biscuit which was amazing, very rich and delicious. My mom ordered the Lord Kenzo and very much enjoyed her choice as well. The dishes do not come with any sides, but the portions are generous. We could've easily split one plate and felt satisfied. We are already planning to make it back again soon for another breakfast or lunch!"

  • "Wanted a local, fresh place to take an out of town guest. The farm house was over and above my expectations! The food was gourmet quality and the ingredients were high quality! The service was friendly, relaxed, informative, and supportive. The hand crafted drinks were astonishingly unique and strong. I highly recommend the River Smash and the prosciutto wrapped chicken if available. I look forward to being able to return even if only for a lunch time imbibe. Very pleased!"

  • "Short ribs and turnip masher and scallops were delicious. Nice beer selection."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Nice atmosphere, food wasn't bad. What I didn't like were the flies, but they are present on farms so I guess farm to table includes flies here. Go with a bottle of red wine which was much better than the super hot red wine by the glass. 2 ice cubes melted immediately upon contact. Hot wine is a huge pet peeve of mine. Nice cheese platter, nice deviled eggs. Unmemorable scallop entree special."

  • "Service was great and the food was amazing. We had a group of 5 that each had a different entree, wine, desserts. It was all excellent! What a neighborhood gem."

  • "good food, average service, a little pricey but nice portions. Also willing to substitute which is nice. Parking can be tough on a weekday lunch"

  • "This restaurant never fails to impress. Great food, both tastefully presented and tastily prepared. Fresh, local ingredients are the best."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Wow! We were a party of six and we got to taste just about every dish on the brunch menu. Food was outstanding. One small suggestion, the Quiche served with wilted spinach, was placed directly in the spinach causing the crust to get a little soggy. The star was the veggie hash with potatoes, tomatoes, and kale."

  • "Best place around for local organic deliciousness at a reasonable price. Brunch for 2 adults & 2 kids cost about $40, and we left stuffed."

  • "We have eaten Sunday brunch at the Farmhouse the past 2 weekends in a row. The food is delicious and locally sourced. They have lots of special cocktails- I got a bourbon and thyme creation that was great! The servers are friendly and polite and the food came out in good time. The only drawback is the male host. He gives off a "too cool" vibe and is a bit rude particularly to people who don't have a reservation. So brace yourself for the chilly entry and then enjoy a delicious meal!"

  • "With one of the best patios in KC, Farmhouse always shines but is especially good in summer. The farm fresh and original food goes great in the shady outdoor patio. The Italian hash special on Saturday was one of the best things I have ever eaten."

  • "the food was excellent - creative and interesting mix of ingedients! The fried green tomatoes were some of the best I have eaten. And who would have thought to pair cantaloupe with zucchini for a fabulous tasting salad? I have enjoyed this restaurant 4 times now and have never been disappointed. Keep up the good work! On the down side the noise level is pretty high inside,so if you want to visit outside dining is quieter."

  • "The hanger steak and fries were delicious. We will definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Pondering options for a Saturday night, Farmhouse was an easy pick when surveying our options. A favorite, based on menu, quality, service and local charm. Hanger steak is a consistent favorite but short ribs and seafood scallop dish of the day was superb. Will go back!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We booked the Chef's room for our anniversary and had dinner there with another couple. The meal among the top 5 we have had in KC with superb service at very reasonable price. The chef prepared a 6 course tasting menu that was absolutely wonderful and the hostess and server treated us as honored guests. We loved it so much we returned the next week for dinner again - which was equally as good. The Farmhouse is an excellent place to dine!!!!"

  • "Food was terrible - tart/bitter. Turnip soup - couldnt' taste the turnips - too much tart spice. Deviled eggs so tart we couldn't eat them. Cole slaw same way. French fries were mostly bottom of the fried oil basket. Extremely disappointed & when we told the waiter, he offered no recourse."

  • "I brought my 80 yr old mom here for her birthday and it was both of our first times here. Basically I had several people tell me there is a cake or a toast involved if it is someone's bd. Nothing was offered. Our Server Sonny also mentioned he would make our visit special. Nothing special was done. In fact the service seemed somewhat slow and we had to ask for things and wait. I finally asked if there was something for bd's and he brought my mom 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sort of a disappointment from what it seemed I was promised by the matre d on Sunday that I stopped in and talked with as well as another one on the telephone promising the same thing."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "They were somewhat busy and we only had a party of four. It seemed like our food must have set in the kitchen a while as it was cold. The server was curt but it was quaint and a good location so we will give them another try."

  • "I made reservations for 6 on patio. We were seated indoors. Water was initially brought to the table. It was Luke warm with no ice. Once order was taken it took 35 min for the food to be delivered. Then only parts of the order. I requested butter for the flat dried out pancakes . I waited for the butter the rest of the party was half done with the meal when upon second request the butter was brought to the table. We typically don't ask for anything extra but warm water and dried out pancakes?? Really ?? It was Saturday morning 11:00 am brunch . Then had to have another waiter being the check after the waitress was asked for it twice and waiting 15 min for it. Each time for the items that were forgotten get excuse was oh I forgot" poor"

  • "Visited the Farmhouse on successive days, first for brunch on Sunday then for a business lunch on Monday. Sunday was very busy yet the staff was prepared. Omelet special was great and our grandkids each enjoyed their meals which often can be a challenge. Monday the restaurant had only a few tables occupied at noon, yet the staff seem surprised that anyone was there. Service was slow and not very attentive. The corned beef sandwich special sounded appealing but turned out to be a soggy, over spiced disappointment."
