We did the chefs menu 6 course meal. This was our 2nd time here. Last time we did an 8 course but the menu has changed. The waiter told us after we were finished they have an 8 course not mentioned on the menu (?) If we knew, we would've done it. It was a different chef than our 1st time & the food was good, but comparing to our first time not as special. I was disappointed that he didn't use the fish in our tasting. The salad with goat cheese & the pork belly were my 2 favorites. We always love chefs tastings but I think in this case I would've rather ordered off the menu because a few dishes sounded more special & interesting than what we actually got.

We booked a specific table for a friend's birthday lunch. We were given that table and felt as though we were in a beautiful private home enjoying a wonderful celebration. The staff was attentive but also never rushed us. Gregory paced everything beautifully. We all agreed that the experience lived up to our expectations. It was wonderful. Thank you to everyone at Brick Farm Tavern for making this a memorable day.

This was my first time at Brick Farm and I must say the service was fantastic. Upon ordering the waiter asked me for food allergies. He put in my order and came back minutes later apologizing but most of the menu was cooked with my allergy and my only options were a steak or burger. Well, I am pregnant- who wants a well done burger or steak!? The chef accommodated me and gave me an item off their restaurant week menu which was delicious. Such good service!

Fabulous restaurant. We loved the pacing of our 6-course meal and our waiter, David (I think that was his name - hope I got that right) was amazing at carrying on a delightful conversation with us. In case I get his name wrong, David grew up in the area right near the restaurant and his brother went to The Lawrenceville School. That should narrow it down so credit goes to the right person. All the other staff were courteous and friendly as well. We'll strongly recommend this to others.

The ambiance of Brick Farm Tavern is inviting, warm and beautiful. The restaurant was crowded and we were asked to wait at the bar. The drink menu is excellent. Our reservation was at 7:30 and we were kept waiting until 8:15. The management apologized profusely and had appetizers waiting on our table for us when we were seated. The food was delicious and the service top-notch. I will definitely return!

It was restaurant week and they offered a 3 course meal at a good price. We enjoyed our dinner and the drinks are always unique and yummy. Too bad they don’t offer specials more often so it’s affordable for us local Hopewellians. An affordable happy hour in the springtime on the patio would be awesome!

The food was ok but not great or at the level of my expectations.
I didn’t finish my main dish there was excitement about the plate, no visual excitement, no taste excitement.
I had better experiences here before, it must have been a down day. It was the day of the snow storm.
The service was great, the ambience great and noise level very low.
For me it is not about the price but the experience, we don’t have many options in the area so I hope this can get better otherwise it will be princeton next time for the peacock Inn or something similar.

It was awful. Except for the service. Both my first and second course (soup and duck) were stone cold. Two of the other courses (both lamb meatballs) simply didn't taste good. they did not charge for the duck but the meal was ruined.

Skip it and go elsewhere.

Perfect country setting! We love it each time we bring family and friends. Lunch was delicious. Shepherd's pie version was good. Turkey Pot Pie was too much but tasty. French Dip Sandwich was good as always.
Empanadas of the day were served hot and good flavors. Best carrot cake so far in the area.
Our server was friendly and attentive.

My second time, here, I had been to the Brick Farm Tavern for dinner about 6 months back to celebrate a wedding anniversary. This time was a small family get-together for lunch. Everything is great - the 200 year old house is beautiful, and I think even more lovely in daylight. For dinner it was very nice, and someplace I would return to for special events. But I was pleasantly surprised how affordable it is for lunch - many main dishes in the $12-$15 range. And the food was original, made with locally sourced produce and meats of the highest quality, and the recipes were unique and delicious. Friendly, knowledgeable service from a staff that is clearly and rightly proud of the tavern. We'll be returning frequently.

This was my second visit to Brick Farm Tavern and it was even more amazing than the first. From the minute you walk in the staff is all friendly and inviting. The service is so attentive and the food is just deliciously amazing. I was here to celebrate my husbands' birthday and had the pleasure of Dan (the man) as our server for the night and Alan as our sommelier. Ooh yes for this dining experience we had the 8-course chefs tasting menu with wine pairings. Dan was very attentive and Alan just blew us out the park with his extensive knowledge of the wines and how they paired with each dish, we got excited about each course as Alan would give us the details of the chosen wine before each course was served. Our last 2 courses were served in the crows nest of this restaurant which overlooks the dining room and provided a very intimate atmosphere to finish the night. I was soo happy they made my husbands birthday so special I had to hug Dan "the man" at the end of the last course. I will definitely be back with friends and family, this restaurant flew to the top of my list effortlessly, both times I had an amazing experience, all the staff are so happy and inviting, and multiple rooms for dining service makes it feel so cozy. A really great experience:--) Thank you Dan "the Man" and Alan

Overall, we loved our dinner out, the place, the staff, and the food!

The most bothering issues were not really uncommon or specific to Brick Farm—it is the fact that in the best places to eat—everyone is being jammed in the same room to sit, talk, order, and eat! It is like humans eat like cows do— crowded together, talking together, and making noises together! The room could have been warmer, and the parking was non existent— a fire in the room would have been fantastic!

My idea of eating at a nice place is a warm room, a fire to look at, soft pleasant music, and alcove eating spaces— twisted and disconnected— like a maze—opened but private— like half walls with plants on the shelves— where you do not feel boxed in— yet you feel like you do not have to listen to loudly bragging stock brokers, big mouth idiots never told to stop talking so loudly, or giggles from those unaware individuals not knowing that the entire world does not want to hear their raucous laughter— like those distractions often heard from those sad people who like to be heard and seen because their lives are so damn miserable! And, I do not think that silverware or business desks should be in the eating room.

Having said the above, Chris was fantastic— he was polite, knowledgeable about every dish, made great suggestions, and was attentive without being intrusive! The food was absolutely delicious in every way, the proportions were sufficient without being excessive, and the home brew—Troon was really good! Worth every penny and we look forward to going back!

Please cut and paste last sentence, because the blah blah issues were minor— but are in every eating situation— seemingly getting worse— the last paragraph is how we actually feel!

Buzz and Karen
