Really enjoyed the food and experience. Make sure you make a reservation, it is very popular! The pancakes are worth the trip. Looking forward to going for dinner.

We had brunch outside, in the back and it was great. The server was awesome, attentive and experienced. I have a dairy sensitivity and he handled that with ease. The menu was creative and appealing and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the brunch!

The Popovers and homemade jam are delicious and the quiche I had yesterday was perfect, very delicate. Starting with "Garden Party" our only regret was we had to choose and leave so many delicious options untasted, such as the mushroom toast!

We had a great time! Loved the food choices and everything was scrumptious. The labor shortage is real, though. Service was pretty slow. Our waitress was very up front about it but wanted to mention it.

We sat outside and there appeared to be two servers between 7 tables who also served the inside.

Either way, we’ll be back!

We were looking forward to some clean food and a nourishing experience. Although the food was good, we were so disappointed with the experience. Every single worker there seemed extremely unhappy and barely said a word to us! Never seen anything like it. They all seemed so miserable and mute! It really ruined the experience. Not sure why they act that way, but they certainly won't be open very long if they continue to act so unhappy to be there. What a shame.

They were very busy and likely understaffed which meant waiting to for a server to find us (I had to remind the host) and a very long wait to get the check paid (had to track down the host again). Our server seemed pretty stressed. It's a tough time for the restaurant biz, better to support them through this and be patient. Food was outstanding, and arrived promptly.

This is one of my husband’s favorite restaurants. So we went for his birthday celebration. The service was exceptional. We ordered the mussel appetizer to share, which had a lot of good liquid left over and no bread to sop it up. When we had finished the mussels, one of the servers was watching and brought us both spoons to solve our dilemma. She was not even our main server. Exceptional.

I am guessing that staff shortages and the pandemic have affected this gem of a place that always felt cosy and welcoming to me in the past. I sat for about 15 minutes before anyone actually connected with me. And that was when I flagged someone down. Getting a drink was not easy! The food was fine, especially the snacks (crispy Brussels and crispy eggplant); the entrees—all three of us had the hanger steak—were not that well presented and had a pile of potatoes that meant the dish did not have that fine feel of my precious meals at FT. I hope for better times!

Something must have gone wrong with our order because we waited nearly 1 hour for our entrees to come out after the appetizers came out speedily. Our server did not acknowledge this delay, and I wished she had to make the experience a little more pleasant. We did not complain as the food was very good so we hope this was a one-off experience.

First time to Farmstead. Was looking forward to eating outdoors, but weather didn’t cooperate, which turned out to be fine. Server was great throughout. Attentive and polite. Soup and salad came out quickly. Entrees as well. Server suggested that kitchen could make something not on the menu (for younger child) if necessary. Nice touch. Food very good. Would certainly repeat.

Excellent food, indifferent service.
Slow to inquire about selections, drinks.
QR menu wasn’t clear graphically. Indicaing “Menu” over the image is an obvious thing to do. No paper menus was inconvenient for a group without cell phones for every person.
