FARM at Carneros Ratings and Reviews
Excellent Place to Linger Over Beautiful Food
I went with 2 friends of mine and we had one of the most delicious meals I've ever had at Farm. We moved gently through oysters on the half shell to beef in 3.5 hours.
The beau solei and miyagis were delicious with a little sparkling from the manager because the vermentino we ordered was not chilled.
Then on to a lovely Farm salad with delicious radichio dressed lightly with a lovely vinaigrette. Along side was a scrumptious toast with burrata that melted in your mouth.
Next course a delicious and very green Dungeness crab risotto with a basil oil drizzle. Mouthwatering!
After those small plates, we moved on to the entree for surf and turf. A lovely combination of sweet diver scallops and beef cheek in two dishes was the capper.
The service was impeccable, friendly and approachable yet not in your face. Each dish came in perfect timing and all dishes were removed with new glassware brought with each wine pairing.
You shouldn't miss this hidden gem at the Carneros Resort. It is definitely a destination worth visiting and returning to near the Napa Valley.
Table for two after a day of wine tasting in St Helena. We ordered a gin based cocktail and had the farm salad, the truffle tagliatelle, the lamb, and the duck. The cocktail was very good. The salad was average. The tagliatelle was delicious! The lamb and duck were very mediocre. The veggies in these meat dishes were very random and too acidic, so didn't really go that well.
There was also a 1 hour delay between our salad and the next course for some reason, likely because they had to serve a large table which threw off their pacing. They did not do anything to compensate for the wait which was a bit surprising given how much we paid for the meal. Although we were not in a rush, I think this tainted the experience because I had not eaten anything significant for about 8 or 9 hours after a full day of wine tasting and at that point I only had one cocktail, a small portion of salad, and bread.
Overall the service was still quite good, and the ambience was wonderful, but don't think I'd come back. I would give it a 3.5 stars. There are many other better places in the area to try for your money's worth. Probably a great option if you're actually staying at the resort.
So - La - La
We had dinner the night before, granted Saturday evening, a wedding and 40th birthday in the house, to celebrate the 60th birthday of 1 in our party.
The appetizers came out in a decent time and were good.
We then waited for about 40 minutes for the main course. We asked about 35 minutes in and were told they are dished NOW. It took another 10 minutes.
The Risotto was hot and tasty, The scallops god, the duck and Truffle Pasta Luke warm.
Not impressed by the size of the pasta either, looked more like a starter size, though the fresh truffle was a good amount an delicious. But you know the truffle only allows to spread the flavor when the food is warm. I asked if the dish was available in warm, it took a moment and it was plastered with a huge dollop of some sort of a cream - not impressed.
The family style breakfast is a great idea however, we were not asked if there are any allergies the kitchen needs to know about. This time it was not full and that is an important question.
The Avocado toast was good, the french brioche toast one of the best we ever had. The one at Hilltop was outstanding too.
We asked for a vegetarian Egg Benedict asking if it possible to substitute the ham with mushrooms, kale, spinach, a tomato, anything. It came on a bread soaked in the citrussy hollandaise nothing was substituted. BUT the egg was cooked to perfection.
The green juices were delicious, BUT PLEASE think about the amount of plastic - either look for an alternative for the plastic straw Loli straw or paper and do not make it an compulsory item.
We celebrated my husbands 35th birthday last night at Farm. Our entire meal was delicious and service was perfectly paced to our liking. We enjoyed several courses including caviar (amazing egg curd and onion jam!), foie gras terrine, tagliatelle with fresh truffles (so yummy), and finished with the scallops and tasting of beef. While the flavors were classic, the preparations made the dishes exciting and fresh. The sommelier, Zion, was very helpful in selecting wine to go with our meal as well. We cannot wait to come back!
We went on Christmas. First and foremost i think that if there is only a prix fixe menu this should be mentioned to all diners in advance! We turned up and were shocked to hear this but unfortunately it was too late to go anywhere else. They managed to cater for an allergy restriction by substituting the dish with salad - a really good one I must say. Food was overall pretty good, servers were very friendly. Dessert was huge, meal very filling.
Will go again but being presented only a prix fixe menu without being told in advance is poor form. If there is only this menu it should be stated clearly. I checked at Time of booking and on their website and this was not stated at all. At least one other table had issues with this.
Dinner was delicious. We had red snapper which was tasty and cooked perfectly with a crisp skin and not dry or over cooked. The chicken had more flavor than any chicken we’ve ever tasted. Service was impeccable. The staff was friendly and attentive. The chef made our night even more special by serving an additional appetizer with vegetables grown in their garden. The poke appetizer was like no other and we loved the roasted seaweed chips that accompanied the dish. The candy bar dessert was scrumptious. We will return in the summer so we can enjoy the grounds and outside seating. This was a beautiful setting both inside and out. Everything in the dishes was very well thought out and seasoned perfectly.
Disappointed, we have dined at Farm before, this time though was not very pleasant. Martinis were watery, service was slow, food was luke warm. They were not busy either. We had a 7:15 reservation and didn’t finish until 10:30. Our waitress was pleasant, but overall the service was very slow.
My steak was ordered medium well and arrived medium rare. The coffee was not ready and I had to wait about 10 minutes for it to brew.
Great atmosphere and the service was very good. There is a lot of staff but they do not communicate with eachother.
I was there for Thanksgiving dinner with my family. I thought all the dishes were good but for the price I expect "amazing." The service and ambiance was really nice and a positive addition to a somewhat lackluster meal. I would definitely go back to try their regular menu but probably skip it come next Thanksgiving.
Our family celebrated thanksgiving dinner here and it was amazing! We requested to sit outside on the patio and enjoyed the relaxing view of the courtyard. The dinner was wonderful. Each dish was served family style for thanksgiving so we all were able to try everything. Each dish, including the sides, had a unique and fabulous taste. Every dish was special. The service was exceptional with each member of the staff attentive and friendly. This was a terrific treat and a fabulous way to start the holiday weekend. We will definitely be back on our next trip. Highly recommend!
Well...as I sit here at the table, still waiting for our food an hour and 45 minutes after ordering...we are not impressed. Took an hour and 10 minutes just to get a slice of bread. Waiter did not seem to know what he was doing. Very unfortunate as the place is beautiful.
Finally got our meals 2 hours after arrival. Parties around us came in and were served and out before we were. Food was mixed. Duck was still raw and sent back, took forever and didn't end up eating it.
Our first time dining at FARM during a visit to Napa for the weekend and it will not be our last. Our servers Crystal and Raymond were so attentive and personable, and manager Dave was very accommodating when we showed up an hour late for our reservation due to a timing mistake on our part. We shared the Burrata and Risotto dishes (both delicious and beautifully presented), and my husband had the 26 oz Porterhouse while I had the diver scallops. Everything was fresh, well prepared and absolutely delicious. Our server asked us if we were in a hurry or if it was ok for her to time our dishes, and we opted for letting her pace our meal. So for those who have read comments about the service being slow, we found the timing to be perfect for allowing us to enjoy our evening in the outdoor heated dining area with wonderful service and food. Our entire experience was about 2.5 hours which included free drinks in the bar/lounge area while the manager found a table for us after we were extremely late for our reservation. Class act and a great night.
Went there for Sunday brunch and it was quite disappointing. You pay $45 per person and end up with the food that you don't really want to eat - it's a family share of 4 dishes per table regardless how many people there are in your party. The food was average quality.
Lovely service and a satisfying expwrience overall. We made a point to arrive early and enjoy cocktails at the pretty fire pits. Patio seating was warm thanks to overhead heaters. Knowledgeable nice server and busperson. A perfect fall evening with my very special husband.
Service was extremely slow!!!!!! It took 1 hour to get our salads and two hours to get dinner. We were a party of 4 and ordered nothing special . Food and cocktails were very good but would not return due to how long it took for dinner. Server was not attentive in updating us on what was going on. She didn't even come back to take additional cocktail orders during our long wait.
Manager did sort of apologize and comped our dinner.
Overall the experience was exhausting.
This restaurant is fantastic! The Carneros Resort is lovely and Farm is right next to the front desk and sits in a remodeled farm house. The adult beverages were well balanced and tasted as described on the menu. We were encouraged to try 4 different entrees and share them so we did and they were all tasty. The staff is wonderful.
Do yourself a a favor get to FARM as soon as possible!
