First time at Brick Farm Tavern and it did not disappoint. Greg, our waiter, was great and so service-oriented. He was knowledgeable, gracious and friendly. The appetizers, French onion soup and the beets, were both delicious. The main courses of tortellini and the pork chop were each terrific. This farm to table restaurant is special and well worth trying.

I was really looking forward to trying Brick Farm Tavern, especially when I heard they also brew beer on the premises. I was disappointed through out the evening. I was expecting a culinary experience, and what I was served was more like something you'd get at Ruby Tuesday's. Just about all 4 courses, including dessert, were over salted and just seasoned improperly. Not by the deft hand of a chef, but rather the clumsy mitts of a short order cook. in my opinion, just another restaurant with a fancy menu that can't deliver. and for $75 a head, they should be ashamed of themselves serving me cold dry bland steak for my entree. The waiter did offer to bring me something else in place of it, but they had already butchered my first meal and I wasn't going to wait around for them to give me another mediocre meal. There are just too many good restaurants around to ever want to go back here again.

Valentine's Day prix fix dinner was creative four courses. As expected, very busy night with a slight wait in the bar for the table and inconsistent timing between the courses. The first two courses (4 dishes among the two of us) were spectacular and very tasty. After this the next course and desserts were not the level expected from this excellent kitchen. Must be the high volume with quite a few plates to choose from. Service was a tad slower and less considerate that usual, but again mark that to the special occasion. There were no wine pairings offered but between the bar drinks and a nice bottle of white, it was a good evening. BFT is one of the best restaurants in the greater Princeton area and we will return and hope for improvements. Highly recommended.

The terroir tour is a great idea, expertly implemented, and beautifully delivered. Besides the outstanding food, perfectly matched with wines, the communal tables created a nice social environment reminiscent of European experiences. Looking forward to South America in March!

Feeling like a meatless meal (they are so good with beef and lamb), I opted for an outstanding leek and potato soup and the falafel with Brussels sprouts. A white and a red French wine were perfect with each course.

We had a great time celebrating our anniversary dinner here. The place is an old farm house turned restaurant. A few different rooms to sit in. Place is relatively quiet. Service was great. Food was great with a few minor things, and I mean minor, I got the steak, it was good but not great, like for $56 I expected to be pretty impressed with it but it was pretty on par with any sirloin I buy locally and make at home, it's not bad but I was hoping for more. Not to say you shouldn't get it, it was good just not $56 good. Wife had the monkfish which was awesome and would highly recommend daughter had the duck which she lived but ordered medium rare and it came out rare, very rare, no problem, they quickly fixed and replated it. Awesome, I've never seen anything so quickly fixed and replated perfectly. We were pretty impressed. The sommelier helped us pair a few wines and he is awesome and knows his stuff. The small plates were great, empanadas, cheese plate, and pork belly were incredible. All different and all very well made. The dessert was awesome as well. This place is farm to table fresh and the drinks are top shelf. My wife said she would drive over an hour just for the old fashioned. So great stuff all around. I would recommend this place to anyone. All in 3 people with 3 small plates, three dinners, 2 desserts and probably 6 drinks totaled about $250, not bad for such awesome top ingredients straight from the farm. Go here, bring some friends, it's gonna be hard to find better after this.

Beautiful place, although we were seated in “basement” which was a little chilly and sparse. When I went back to reception area to get my coat, they were proactive and turned up the heat which was nice. All staff were exceptionally warm and friendly. Service was a little less than stellar. We ordered drinks, an appetizer and a salad. Caesar salad was very good, not great, served up very plainly in a bowl. Beet appetizer was also very good not great, although very pretty. Very good drinks. After our entrees were served, no one asked us if we wanted wine. I asked for the wines by the glass menu, which someone, not our waiter, got for me. But no one came by to take our order - we’re in the far corner of the basement, remember? So no wine with dinner. Choucroute Garnie was a big pile of brown food. Presentation very poor. Flavor good, especially sauerkraut. Monkfish pretty and delicious - again very good, not astonishing. Would go back to the bar upstairs, or maybe in another season when perhaps the freshness of the produce would bring up the level of the dishes.

Brick Farm Tavern serves delicious Farm to Table dining on a rotating menu. I have eaten here for lunch multiple times but this was my first dinner experience. I highly suggest taking advantage of making a reservation as you will be seated in more intimate space. I had the Lamb Meatballs with a start of the cheese board all very sharable. Every dish was spot on! Brick Farm Tavern has developed into a staple of Craft beer lovers and seekers from across the state and or country. Troon Brewing is a top notch brewer and compares with all the large craft names in the country at this point. Highly suggest a pour! Cheers.

The new chef has a nice take on the menu, not over the top. Everything is delicious. I had the lamb meatballs as the main course, quite delicious, my dining companion had the cassoulet, very good.

We shared a the kale Caesar it was a nice version as well. The selections of wine by the glass were nicely priced and tasty. The cocktails are well prepared and presented and it remains one of the better cocktail bars in the area along with Mistral.

Food is a bit pricey but not over the top, the service was attentive, professional, but not stuffy, the restaurant was thankfully quiet enough to have a conversation at normal levels (what a wonderful change these days!) I was on crutches, everyone from the valet parking attendant through the entire staff was wonderfully accommodating. Thank you!

Nice date spot and for special occasions!

This place is amazing. Was nearby, needed lunch so searched on Open Table and found this gem. I had the falafel which was unique and absolutely delicious. Hubby had the Croque Madame which he raved about. Love the farm-to-table approach. Had Kane beer and also sampled the local Troon offering. Portions were IMO perfectly sized. We live in Far Hills and dine frequently at many nearby great places as well as NYC and Brick Farm Tavern was every bit as good. Would not hesitate to make the 40 minute drive back to try the dinner menu. Our server Dan was wonderful and shared some of the background w us. Chefs table and wine cellar dining looked intriguing as well. Dined on 2/2/2019

We had a wonderful experience at Brick Farm. Originally we were to be three but my son was able to join us. He was concerned because he has celiac and not every restaurant is able to accommodate him. I called and the staff was very helpful. I said we had wanted to do the chef’s tasting and would it be possible for them to have one that was accommodating to my son. She didn’t know but would make a note for the chef. On Friday, the wait staff knew about our restrictions and said with a little tweaking our son could enjoy the chef’s tasting with us. It was a wonderful meal. We really appreciate the extra consideration to make it a great experience for all of us.

I had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday at Brick Farm Tavern. The food was delicious and fresh. Previous reviews were absolutely correct, the burger was juicy and simply the best I have had. I loved that our desserts (bread pudding & rice pudding) were tasty and not too sweet. Wait staff was curtious and most importantly, the owner stopped by to say hello. We chatted with him and was quite down to earth kind of guy. Love the feel of the place as well.

Everything about the Brick Farm Tavern was perfect. In our party of four, we ordered 4 different large plates from the lunch menu and two small plates to share (hummus and chicken liver mousse). Each bite was scrumptious. Our waiter, Joe, was friendly, professional, and shared a wealth of information about the farm, the farmhouse and its addition, and the owners' philosophy of farm-to-table. The drinks menu was also excellent with imaginative and nicely executed libations. Without hesitation, I will gladly recommend the Brick Farm Tavern to friends and family.

Went for a birthday dinner with the daughters. Had cheese plate, french onion soup, tuna carpaccio and beet salad to start/share. Beet salad was outstanding , tuna carpaccio was ok, nice selection of cheeses for cheese plate but surprised no blue option (would have been nice to have been to choose 3-5 options). Then we shared the burger and the tortellini. Burger was fine and tortellini was outstanding, although the portion could have been larger for the price. Service was excellent throughout the meal and provided helpful suggestions. Wine list is nice and the cocktail list interesting (featuring in part the spirits from the distillery behind the restaurant). Overall, a nice relaxed but solid meal in a wonderful ambiance.

We have eaten here before and loved it. Unfortunately, tonight the service/timing of meal wasn't up to par. The waiter, while attentive, took forever to come back to our table to fill our water, etc. There were times when he even had the water pitcher in his hand at the table next to us, appeared to look our way, and then went back to doing something else. Same with getting our check. We had an early reservation and were there for 2.5 hours! It was about 1.5 hours before our main course arrived. Appetizers took quite a while too. We enjoyed each other's company, but I would have preferred a bit speedier timing and a bit more attentive service. It's strange because several other tables in our area arrived well after us and were out before us. Just slightly disappointed.

One of my fave restaurants in Jersey. Worth the drive if farm to table creative cuisine is your thing. Also some very accessible items on the menu such as the grass fed burger (one of the best I've had). Discovered Brick Farm by visiting Troon Brewery. Amazing beers produced by them compliment the food.

On this visit we had the pork, steak, burger and some small plates. All fantastic dishes enhanced by great presentation. About a 60 mile drive for my family and I but worth it every time.
