    Lovely dinner. Inside is very cute. Don’t care much for outside. We had calamari(special app). Wish we also had the fried green tomatoes. Also the short ribs(v good) and roasted Brussels as well as beet salad. (Those were only ok…kind of boring especially the beet salad). A lovely little cheesecake for desert and a good temperanillo. Wines reasonably priced if you get a bottle. Good old fashioned as well.

    Super cute restaurant with a nice menu. Unfortunately they were out of quite a few things when we were there. Also, the service was mediocre. The food we did have was delicious though!

    We sat in the back patio area which was very nice. We had the Octopus (amazingly tender and tasty), fried green tomatoes (great), beet salad (plate of diced, overcooked beets with a few pieces of cheese) and the burger (ordered medium rare but came well done and dry). I will add that we ordered the truffle fries with the burger and they we're some of the best I've had. We were sharing everything and asked that the dishes be spaced out. We were only halfway through our first dish and the second arrived at the table. We sent it back and reiterated our request. Timing was better after that. We've gone in the past and had better experiences, so we'll probably try it again - just not soon.

    Don't know what happened to this restaurant. Used to be good. Quality of food has gone down quite a bit. And for that reason it is also extremely overpriced. Not a good value. Don't mind paying the cost but it has to be commensurate to the quality of the food.

    Second time here and even better than the first. Love the casual game atmosphere and it’s intimacy. Waiter was very attentive. Crab cakes and all 3 sauces outstanding. Salmon special and the pesto gnocchi equally so. Cavatelli and sausage and melon salad also every good, although would have liked a bit more melon. Cocktails were creative and strong.

    A wonderful place to dine! Reservations were easy with Open Table and we were seated promptly. The service was impeccable from start to finish. The food was delectable in taste as it was in presentation. Salad ingredients were fresh and the accompanying sauces/dressings were tantalizingly colorful and tasty, not overpowering the fresh garden taste. The ambiance had a warm and cozy feel, great for intimate dining as well as casual conversation. The bathrooms were clean as was the overall impression of the restaurant. There was an included 18% gratuity on the bill, which is well deserved, with an optional additional tip if desired. A beautiful dining experience! Thank you!

    We were very excited to come here, but left disappointed. First, they ended up being out of the gluten free flatbread dough, which was nobody’s fault, but was disappointing. Found something else to order, and we’re offered gluten free bread on the side to make it a bit more substantial. We assumed it would be a few dollars if not free, but they charged $7 for 2 slices of gluten free bread, and we were not told there would be such a significant up charge. Gluten free bread on the cheese board was an extra $3 and the gluten free flatbread was an extra $4. But $7? For what we didn’t actually want? In addition, the drinks felt less like cocktails and more like coolers. All and all, you are better off at other local date night spots.

    Overpriced and snobby! Poor service, we waited for about an hour to even ask for drinks. I get that there is a place for this style, and I am so happy that many people appreciate it. Best wishes! Also, we had reserved a table for 4, and mentioned in the reservation that we were doing date night, but when we were seated they refused to offer it, saying that it was only valid for a table of 2. We did not know that and it didn't say that either. We stayed and enjoyed appetizers. But we would have ended up spending more money had we been treated to the date night experience, and would have been more satisfied, but whatever, rulz are rulz, hatrz gonna hate, whatevs. Prob would not go back to Farmer's Bottega again, this was my 3rd and last visit.

    The food was good and the outside area has been decorated nicely. Unfortunately, it was very loud, but once a few of the big parties left, we were able to converse easier. But at that time the waitress asked us to leave, as we were approaching a 2-hour limit and they needed our table. Prior to this, she wasn't the most attentive wait person and seemed to be put out by our requests. First time we were ever asked to leave...

    Sat outside. Service was a bit lacking, as one server with two bussers handled a 6 top, four 2 tops, and two 4-tops. Food was quick and tasty, though not very intriguing. Good for comfort food, not really pushing any limits in terms of flavor, technique, or presentation. Main dishes are plenty for one meal. The charred octopus was out. Cocktails were a bit on the pricey end for what you got.

    Easily one of the best dining experiences I’ve had this year. The atmosphere on the patio is cute, quiet, welcoming. The food was perfectly cooked, the table couldn’t stop talking about the grilled octopus, salmon special, shrimp arrabbiata. And the drinks were inventive and delicious. We’ll certainly be back to this hidden gem in mission hills soon.
