The Farmhouse - Kansas City
One of my favorite restaurantsI am always surprised by the foods I will try at the Farmhouse. I do not care for grits and spinach and yet I found myself eating those very things AND loving it! I am never scared to try anything new there because the flavors are always delicious. The brick walls and artwork add to the quaint ambience. It is located in a nostalgic neighborhood that reminds me of San Francisco or Chicago. I cannot say enough nice things about this extraordinary gem.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, food not so muchEnjoyed the setting and service. Rabbit stew was real good. Pork tenderloin had a lot of gristle, disappointed in that choice.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day OutingWe were so impressed with our food. Your grits are to DIE FOR!!!!!

One note: the online menu was not-up-to-date, so don't get your heart set on anything until you get there.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMlocally growngreat little place with excellent locally grown produce and meats exquisitely prepared... a little pricey, but worth it...5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dining experience wasOur dining experience was most pleasant. Our waiter was so knowledgeable about the food . The atmosphere was very friendly and the service excellent- very conscious that we had theatre tickets and needed to be finished by a certain time. We did recommend this restaurant to a family member and are anxious to hear what they think/ I love the use of locally grown and seasonal food .5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLuscious lunchThird time here, first lunch. Homemade pastrami sandwich and my companion's club were tasty. We love the European take on American foods from local providers prepared creatively, and The Farmhouse ambiance. Dine there, then take a walk on the river trail and it's a nice respite from every day life.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience.Every dish was wonderful, good portions, great wait staff.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousWhat a fun, hip little find. Made reservations for a client dinner while in town for a convention and so glad we came.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe highly recommend The Farmhouse.We highly recommend The Farmhouse. Their menu is mainly based off local produce and products and changes seasonally. The food was outstanding -- we couldn't stop talking about how delicisous our meal was that night. Can't wait to go back and try more menu items.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything that my group orderedEverything that my group ordered was cooked perfectly. My wife had the braised short ribs and they were so big and tender, it was like eating a perfectly cooked roast, and they must have been dinosaur ribs, very filling. I had the hanger steak, which is not one of my favorite cuts, but Farmhouse's hanger steak was aged and cooked perfectly. We are definitely going back again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Brunch!We love this place so much, we are bringing back four of our friends next Sunday! Already booked on Open Table. Food is amazing, I was already craving it on Monday morning!!!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the huntWe've been here a few times now and taken out-of-town guests, all of whom love the place. The menu is interesting, unique, and all very good. The atmosphere of the place is just fun. If you like creative, different, fresh, well done food then you should try this place.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWow! What a fun, loud placeWow! What a fun, loud place on a Saturday afternoon for brunch, but what food, libation and atmosphere! My husband, his two daughters ad their husbands and I celebrated my birthday there and we have no idea, who out-ordered the other. All I saw were flying forks, reaching hands and Spring drink glasses being passed. The only downside was service. Easily their staff could have been
been doubled.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great contributionWhat a great contribution to KC's vibrant local food scene! Chef Muchael Foust has created and pulled off a wonderful concept well done!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting, locally-sourcedInteresting, locally-sourced menu and terrific service. Our pasta w spring veggies and sausage was a little heavy on the meat, but after all, we're in the Midwest.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTry It!Great fresh, locally grown, raised food. Service was good, ambiance nice. Would go back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA delightful brunch experienceOur first visit to The Farmhouse was for Easter brunch. It was delightful. The ambience was great with the exposed brick walls and plenty of natural sunlight coming through the front windows.
The service was outstanding, but unfortunately, I don't recall the young lady's name. She was friendly AND helpful. When I asked for her suggestions/favorites she responded authentically... so refreshing from the standard "oh, I really like this or that (the two highest priced choices on the menu!)." Instead, she offered her personal favorites and why... which led me to trying something new... the lamb sausage as a savory side to my decadently sweet entree of Bread Pudding French Toast. Yum.
We will definitely be back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fantastic visit withAnother fantastic visit with friends who had never been to The Farmhouse. They loved it and planned to go back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience. A must to visitGreat dining experience. Very fit for foodies and large portions. Service was attentive and helpful. We were a group of seven and managed to get in at the lasting te but frankly I am surprised it was not SRO.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining with local productFine dining with a focus on local farm fresh ingrediants. All meats and cheeses are from local producers but this is not simple plain food. The Chef did an excellent job in highlighting each course and the main ingredient in that dish. I had Braised Short Rib with a demiglas sauce. Expertly braised for six hours, it was perfect. The wait staff paced the evening perfectly and their wine list was reasonably priced and a good selection of French wines. Highly recommend.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMVery happy we found this,Very happy we found this, as we had been looking for something to stop in at on our way out to Zona Rosa for a comedy show. Very attentive staff, nice decor that feels warm and comfortable but still is interesting. Everything that we had was terrific - started with cheese and a salad (the goat cheese bits were perfect) then followed with the steak and the chicken as main dishes. Steak was really good, chicken was good but the mashed potatoes were the highlight. Our only complaint was that the Kale in the chicken dish was a bit hard to eat, as it wasn't cooked quite enough and could have used more flavor. All together it was a winner - we'll definitely be back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a good experience inWe had a good experience in all facets of the meal and service.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Farmhouse exceeded myThe Farmhouse exceeded my expectations! My wife and I had a wonderful dinner. No only was the dinner tasty but VERY HEALTHY. It was so cool to eat at the Farm House because not only is the food GREAT but they give you a list of all the local farms the food comes from. In addition the location is in a very cool part of Kansas City.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have now been to The FarmhouseWe have now been to The Farmhouse twice for brunch and it has quickly become one of our favorites. The locally produced food is wonderful, especially the eggs and lamb sausage. And there are always some very unique, interesting daily specials. We will definitely make this a regular destination.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst FarmhouseThis was my first visit to The Farmhouse and it was a most enjoyable lunch.
