Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "We had a great time with only two exceptions - there were tons of flies on the patio (not that you can really do much about that) and the new cocktails were sold out. Otherwise, everything was fantastic."

  • "The live music was WAY TOO LOUD for the size of the restaurant."

  • "Ive been to The Farmhouse many times. In the beginning, it was fresh and interesting. The food and service was warm and inviting, and I looked forward to returning. But over the last two years or so, it has become mediocre at best. Not bad, but not good.... Sadly, I won't recommend or return to this restaurant in the future."

  • "There were nice entrees.. the entree Salads are smaller than they should be for the price. The breakfast burger was great. nice atmosphere, nice music on a Sunday"

  • "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!"

  • "All the farmers for all the ingredients are listed on a big board. Loved having my own French press when I ordered coffee. Food was excellent - everything was fresh, seasonal, and the pork sausage was outstanding."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "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."

  • "Loved the variety of farm fresh-to-table entrees! Not a big selection of draft beers, and what we got was not very cold. But the available bottled beers list was huge and had some favorites. The watermelon, tomato and mozzarella salad starter was a unique blend and so flavorful. Our entire party enjoyed the cheese tray appetizer. The Hanger aged steak entree was tender, delicious and cooked perfectly. Finished up with the fabulous carrot cake dessert, which is reason alone to go back for if I needed one! Looking forward to trying out their lunch menu soon. Most importantly, thanks Farmhouse for bringing the importance of local farm support to the dining-out experience!"

  • "Hostess was rude. She was in the middle of separating out the menus and kept at her task until she was finished, then she went to find us a table. We felt like we were an interruption. That alone will keep me from coming back even though the waitress was wonderful and the food was delicious. I had a noon reservation and updated to 12:30 when I realized I couldn't make it on time. Perhaps she didn't get my update and thought I was late? They need to replace her. We ate at several Kansas City restaurants over our 3 day visit and she was the rudest person we met."

  • "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."

  • "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!!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
