  • Wasn't what we expected

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    With the name Farmhouse we expected a more mainstream menu with farm to table-like ingredients. The hangar steaks were fine but many of the other items were off putting. Pig skin pasta? Octopus? Plus Others I can't recall. Server was very kind but didn't know the menu well as he didn't know the size of the meat dishes for example. Also came close to giving me a dirty dish but at least stopped as he handed it over. Also didn't like the flies around our window table.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/21/2014
    The food here is good. Nothing amazing. The quiche of the day portion is small and just fine. The potatoes taste more like french fries than breakfast potatoes. Very heavy on the hollaindaise on the egg benedict. I would ask for it on the side. The decor was the strangest part. An large and odd installation of balls of white fabric on a stained draping of white fabric was disconcerting. I was glad it was not in view from my seat.

    This restaurant really promotes its farm to table concept by listing all its suppliers on a chalkboard. On another chalkboard is the specials for the day. I had the jambalya on the special menu. Not for the faint of heart. Spicy! My wife had the fried chicken with kale and watermelon. These entrees were preceded by two very good salad. This is the second time we have been at this restaurant and have enjoyed it both times however each time there seemed to be very few other diners. Granted it was a Saturday night, late. Hopefully they see more of a crowd for lunch and weeknights. We recommend!

    I had been to the FarmHouse many times in the past. It was like I was at a different restaurant this time. I had the short ribs. They were so fatty that they looked unappealing. They tasted that way too. My companion had the scallops and thought they were tougher than they should have been. The waiter who delivered our salads (he was not the waiter for the rest of the meal) stood at our table with two salads and rather indifferently said I have no idea which salad is which. I had to tell him to put them on the table and we'd figure it out. Our waitress knew I was completely disatisfied with my dinner. She did offer complimentary coffee which I declined.

    Every time that I have been to the Farmhouse, I have had a great experience. Any friend I have taken has been glad to go, and says that they too will take friends and family to eat there. The food is exceptional, the prices are reasonable for the food, and the wait staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

    This visit to The Farmhouse was not as satisfying as the first few times. We were disappointed that the catch of the day was scallops and there were no other seafood choices, as we all like to enjoy a nice white fish or salmon when dining out. We ordered an appetizer expecting to get a plate of meats and cheeses, and we got a pate with mustard sauce instead. On the bright side, the salads were delicious and beautifully presented. The entrees were good, not great. Desserts good... would recommend the apple pie a la mode. French-press coffee (we enjoyed two pots!) was sublime and always a treat. The tab was a bit of a shock, although we did enjoy cocktails and wine. Dinner for four came to $250, so with tip it was $300.

    After months of my sister telling me we finally got to go and meet up with some family and friends. From the appetizers to the desserts...the wait staff were all spot on with recommendations. HIGHLY recommend the Rabbit Rangoon - very very addictive! The noise level did make it a little harder to hear everybody at our table but it was apparent we were not the only ones having a good time. Will be going back!

    Dined on 8/29/2014
    Worst start to what was supposed to be a night of celebration. We arrived promptly at 7:30 for our reservation,the restaurant was not busy at all, maybe 5 or 6 tables. We sat at our table for 13 minutes without being greeted or anything from any waiter or host or anyone. We finally got up and walked out after more than 10 minutes had passed. What really annoyed me what there was 2 waitresses' and 1 waiter that walked past our table without any notion made towards us. I made eye contact with all three of them. No one could even come by and give us some water and tell us it would be just a moment. Not one person came by our table the entire 13 minutes we sat there. So we left. I will never return and will never recommend to anyone.

    The servers are very attentive and the food selection is very creative and good. We tried the rabbit Rangoon and everybody raved about it. I also like the atmosphere of comfortable and casual yet I can have a business lunch in dress attire. We wanted to eat outdoors but construction noise prohibited us.

    I will keep it short and to the point. The food was extremely salty, like everything. The place as a whole was "sweet," really cool vibe and you know where your food comes from. However, it was over salted. The drinks were good but this could be why I drank so much.

    I've been going to the Farmhouse for years. The food ALWAYS is noteworthy and memorable. I've been disappointed by the service but on Saturday evening, the food and service was perfect. I give it a low score on ambience because the noise robs from the pleasure. As one table gets 'energetic' others must strive to be heard and by 8pm Sat evening, the energy was robbing from my pleasure with my partner. I told her that I hope that we're never the loudest group in a restaurant. Truly, a wonderful experience. I wish that I could suggest a way to manage the noise without turning off the clientele.

    My wife got farmhouse salad and dried chicken. Said the salad was the best she has ever had and raved about it repeatedly. Said she would never order the chicken again. Looked over cooked and she confirmed that it was. I got spinach salad and the hanger steak with fries. Salad was ok. Hanger steak was perfect. Fries were fresh cut in house and just ok. Ketchup was house made and not very good. Two salads, two drinks, two entrees, and tip cost us $100. Way too much for what it was.

    This was my first visit to The Farmhouse and it will not be the last! I had a reservation @ 10:15 but it looked like you could walk in and still get a table without too much of a wait. The menu does change often because of their use of local ingredients but there was plenty of different dishes to choose from. The food was delicious, the portions were generous and the price was right! The only thing I would change is our waiter took a hot minute to come back around to take our order. This could be because when he first asked we hadn't even looked at the menu and he was giving us plenty of time to decide. Can't wait to go back!

    I had the Prosciutto Wrapped Windhaven Farms Chicken Breast - with fried chicken liver, a deviled egg, grilled asparagus, creamy polenta, and a berry sauce. Every bite of it was delicious and each flavor complemented perfectly. My date had the Hanger and Fries - cooked medium rare with bleu cheese butter, salsa verde, and what tasted like a housemade ketchup. I had a bite of her Hanger steak with a smear of the bleu cheese butter and it was wonderful. We finished with dessert. One was a chocolate cake with ganache, the other was a sponge cake with lemon-pickled apples & a berry sauce. Both were exquisite. We both agreed we would keep it on our list of restaurants to go to when we want a special night out.

    I looked online for a restaurant close to the Kansas City Airport to have lunch on my way there -- avoiding airport food! What a delight this was. Amazing local fresh food. I had peach macaroni & cheese and wished I could have taken the leftovers with me on the plane! Others in my group had real (!) fried chicken and a veggie sandwich. Easy to get on and off the freeway to hit this place. Excellent service as well.

    I am constantly on the hunt for a great brunch spot. Seeing how its been years since I have been to The Farmhouse I thought I would give it another try. From the very beginning Jesse, our amazing server did not make us feel rushed. The boyfriend and I both got a breakfast cocktails that were fantastic and the biscuits tasted like grandma made them. We loved it all. Jesse and the biscuits are two huge assets to The Farmhouse. Thank you all for a great experience and we can't wait to be back!

    This was our third visit to The Farmhouse, and my husband's hanger steak was exceptional, as were the fries! The rum cake dessert is also delicious! I had the chicken breast and was very disappointed and barely ate half of it. They were out of the special salad, so we got the fried green tomatoes appetizer instead - unfortunately, they arrived with our meal. Our server was new and didn't know the answer to even the most basic question, so I would suggest that they provide more training before putting a new employee out on their own.
