The steak for two was very below average. Everything else was very good.
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.
My husband and I always have a wonderful meal at Farm. The service was great and the small booths are very cozy for a intimate date night.
My wife and I had a very nice dinner at FARM. We were on a date night without the kiddos and was very happy with our meal and service. Thank you Team FARM!
We were served exquisite cocktails the bar while waiting for them to prepare a fireside table for us. Our server was excellent. Only minor annoyance is how long it took the mains to come out
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!
Another wonderful experience at FARM. Food was simply glorious and our server was attentive, and personable.
