Pretty decent restaurant that my food-loving son wanted to try. A lot of emphasis on local ingredients. Portions and preparation of the dishes were okay; the sauces on both my farmer's salad and lamb were surprisingly sweet. Others in our family party liked their meals better. Good wine list and service. A little pricey over all.
My first visit, was not disappointed. Excellent selections, well prepared and a wonderful setting.
I suggested a dinner get together with a friend who had never been to Farm and Table. As always, the ambiance was wonderful, cozy, inviting, etc. It is good to see that the wait staff has longevity because I always manage to have the same waiter each time we are there. This is not necessarily a good thing. While he is friendly enough and mostly attentive, I never get the sense that he enjoys what he is doing. More than a few times he has forgotten an item that was ordered and had to be reminded - for instance, my friend ordered ice tea and I ordered a glass of wine (way over priced, but my choice to go ahead with the order). The wine came and it was quite a while that she was without her tea - we decided to remind him about the tea.
My friend's first visit to Farm to Table was very favorable - she ordered a steak and enjoyed her meal very much. I ordered the trout and thought it was mediocre at best. The side of chard was delicious and a few slices of local radish were crispy and fresh. However, for $26 I would like an additional item on the plate - a grain of some sort would go well with the fish. The pesto for the fish was nondescript, therefore didn't do much for the trout. Trout is delicate so nothing too overwhelming would work either. I said nothing to my friend about not caring for my menu choice as she was very happy to be there and enjoying her first visit. I did not want to spoil her enthusiasm. I will return because I have had some very good menu choices, however, I will not order the trout again unless the offering is different and has an additional food item to compliment the vegetable and fish. I definitely recommend Sat./Sunday brunch.
4 different tables requested moving to another table because there was a table of 10 ladies that were so loud no one could hear. There was no one in charge who was willing to ask them to please lower their voices. Even in the next room the sound was still so loud we ate our "going away" brunch for our good friend in near silence as she is hard of hearing and had to remove her aids! Our waiter was delightful and empathetic but our party was ruined and 3 other tables of guests were, I believe, equally as disappointed. I love this restaurant and suggest it all the time but parking for handicapped is almost non-existent, tables are very close together and do not handle walkers or wheelchairs easily, and now the fact that there is no one senior enough on duty to address noise, etc. I will not return for a long while.
Took my wife here for her birthday. We had the best tea we had ever tasted and the food was delicious!
What an amazing evening, thank you to our wonderful waiter for making it special. This was one of the best dinner dates I have experienced in Albuquerque. The food was delicious the entire evening and meal was perfect.
Excellent food, first class service! Nice enclosed patio was nice even though it was a very windy evening. Excellent salads, great beers on draft (La Cumbre and Marble). Entrees were also excellent, we had the trout and the pork tenderloin, both were awesome. Pricey, but no more than expected for fine dining.
Our experience was amazing, the service food and the scenery made this night special.
How was Farm to Table? DELICIOUS! Creative, inventive and tasty food, friendly attentive service. All in a charming and attractive setting. Highly recommend.
Food was excellent..Eric our server gave excellent service..Bread was excellent..Great evening we will return..
The choice of vegetarian options was disappointing. Otherwise not a bad place to go.
Request the rasquache table around the corner on the patio. The whole place is charming, even from the view from the road, but this table is a special touch. It's a reproduction of a chile vendor's signage, created by a primo of the owner, who was a chile slinger for years. The focus on local production continues through the food: how many farm-to-table restaurants are actually sited on the grounds of the farm (and cottage cattle ranch) itself? This was especially magical for someone visiting from the east coast like myself. The table, the patio, the architecture, and the farm were a memorable setting for...
The meal: It began with housemade pate (offered by a vegan, but generous and understanding chef) and an unpretentious conversation about the wine. a few more inventive appetizers preceded the comfortingly pungent sopa de ajo. The steak, my main course, was perfectly medium rare, and I'm grateful for the conscientious sommelier who helped me think in advance about my main course. The "masculine" wine he suggested was in fact the perfect companion to the steak from a creature raised just a few hundred feet behind where I was seated. Dessert options, shared with my companions that evening, included some whimsical options, plays on flan and the like, that were delicious. However, my own choice was to me the best, a proficiently brewed high-quality espresso, and capping off a near perfect meal, the dense, dark chocolate homemade ice cream that floated me home that lovely evening.
This isn’t my first time to F&T, and it will not be my last. I love the vibe and La Parada next door is always a treat. I had some of the best fish tacos in the SW! Great coffee! Not bad prices either. Waitstaff could be a tad more attentive.
I need to remember not to order eggs when I sit on the patio. There is no way to keep them warm enough to eat- so food was not good today for me. I will try salad next time.
The food was delicious, but a bit overpriced. Good beer and wine selection, all of which was over shadowed by disappointing service. Our waiter offered bread and butter, but never delivered it. Another staff person delivered our salads and we had to ask them for bread and butter. We ordered an appetizer that we never received. The table next to us was seated at least 25 minutes after we were, had 3 people at their table (we were a party of 2), received their food and deserts before we did, and left at least 30 minutes before we even received our check. Too many mistakes for a $160 bill at the end of the night.
Interestingly all three of us had same meal with filet cooked at different temperatures to each individual's liking. All three were done perfectly! The ambiance was enhanced by sitting outside with the sun shining as it set in the west to create a beautiful moment and wonderful memory. The wine selection was solid, and the service was wonderful! Will go back!
food is great but expensive. recipes are unique and we like that they grow their own food items and that seasonal options are the norm. Appreciation of the food had to compete with the logistics of the room. tables were too close and noise level was high partly because there were very small children dispersed throughout the restaurant and they increased the noise level. the crying and screaming interfered with conversation at our table. Our reservation was a Saturday night. perhaps a family space could be considered or child free dining times.
Great time for Mom and sisters to get a chance to reconnect. The whole experience was fantastic! Plan to make it at least a monthly adventure, :)
Patio table. Enclosed against the cool evening, but still roomy and quiet enough to talk. Great service. Food, as always, was excellent. Everyone got something different, and all felt they had the best of the deal.
We had a fantastic experience. All our food allergens and requests were well taken care off! Our server/sommelier was absolutely wonderful. Haven’t stopped talking about our evening....will be back even though I was in Albuquerque for a business meeting.
We enjoyed having Easter Brunch here today. Everything was delicious!! We had Farm Scramble - both the egg version and tofu, breakfast tacos, enchiladas and eggs, bisquit sandwich. We will be back to try their dinner menu. =)
My husband and I eat at Farm and Table quite regularly. We absolutely love this restaurant!! The food is fabulous as well as the atmosphere. We had Easter brunch there and again, it was just perfect.
Our meal yesterday was the worst week ever had at Farm and Table. I have gotten the eggs and enchiladas several times in the past, and it has been delicious. Yesterday, however, the enchiladas and eggs came all mixed together. It was strange and not terribly appealing. The red chili was weak, although the green was tasty. The pastries had too many nuts in them. Several times we had to ask different members of the waitstaff for the same thing because the first person had failed to bring what we asked for. The staff was very nice, but our waiter seemed scattered.
Had a variety of food options for brunch including a vegan tofu scramble. Great coffee and atmosphere. Server was friendly and didn't come by too little or too often. Ingredients tasted fresh and delicious. Definitely a little out of the way, but worth the trip.
Very good good great setvice
We truly enjoyed a relaxing Easter Brunch. Nothing fancy - just a great meal as always.
All and all, this was a very good experience. It's hard to call something "a good value" when 2 people leave a restaurant with two entrees, a bowl of soup, 2 glasses of wine (11 and 13 dollars) and desert for 170$+ tip. Of course, I've spent more and I still find it amazing what we'll spend for a night out. But, that said, the quality of the food was superb, service was well above par, and I'm very glad that we have a restaurant of this caliber in ABQ.
food was rich and quite tasty but disappointed with the meagre selection for vegetarian. green been dish was superb as was the fettucini
Allergies Beware! Though our server assured me they could avoid what I am allergic to, they added it to one of my dishes and I suffered all night as a result.
Farm and Table never disappoints. Highly recommend a reservation. Come ready to explore tastings in a relaxed atmosphere with superb ingredients. Love the Chef!
Mixed reaction from our table of seven. Half liked the meal and a half thought it was just average. That would be OK but the price is elevated so should expect much more. The brunch is really breakfast and not substantial though they charge for a larger presentation. Charging more for farm fresh eggs when the chicken actually does the work is improper. Should really offer more for the price.
Took the in laws there as their first visit and they really enjoyed it.
We had a wonderful experience, great service and a splendid evening overall!
Great food, great service and a beautiful environment - worth the drive out of town a bit.
It was a first time visit for my wife and I, (her birthday). The reservation was made online. The area we were sat was good and the ambiance is very nice.
Although I'm not a big fish person, I ordered the trout because of previous reviews I had read. I'm glad I did. The trout came with kale and chard as greens and a delicious poblano pepper sauce. The meal was delicious. I can enthusiastically recommend the trout.
My wife had the special of the day, rabbit ragu. It also was very good. This was our first experience in memory for rabbit and was not disappointed.
Our drink was a French white wine, Pouilly-Fuisee, Chateau de Beauregard '14. It complemented our meal so well that I'm going to purchase a bottle for home.
The service, I felt, was spot on. They did not hover nor did we feel forgotten. Just right.
Yes the experience was a bit pricey, but worth it . This will not be our last visit
Great food! Beautiful restaurant with a wonderful vibe!
This restaurant has been great both times that I have visited. I love the authentic feel of the restaurant. The food always wows me. Being locally grown does great things for it, but I also believe that the chef does an incredible job. It was a bit cold sitting in the partially enclosed outdoor seating area. I will definitely be returning when it warms up.
Can't complain about anything other than it was rather expensive.
I was looking forward to the meal as the restaurant had been recommended by several people. The portions were sufficient, food well plated, and seasoned well. I did feel the menu was a bit limited, but that could be the time of year and season.
