Great spot near BC. It was the perfect place to go for Sunday brunch.
New waitress who was excellent!
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!
Really lovely casual meal. Sat on the back patio which was delightful. Will be back!
Delicious lunch in a lovely outdoor courtyard! Highly recommend!
Excellent brunch, fresh and delicious though a bit pricy.
Outdoor dining on sidewalk allowed social distancing and service was excellwnt.
Food was spectacular. respectful and well spoken employees. Food was fresh, delicious, and worth every cent.
Cod was amazing! Wine list needs more by the glass options for red wine drinkers.
Food is outstanding, flavorful, served piping hot, a generous portion. No matter what I order the quality is the same. The service is fabulous!!! Our waitress was personable and efficient. I’m so happy they have an outdoor dining option! Love this place!!!
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.
Food and drink offerings are always inspired and delicious. Service is amazing (Thank you John!!).
Sat on patio. Service was a little slow. We waited longer than expected for our food. A little pricey, but fine. Unusual dishes. We were in no rush. Stayed almost 2 hours.
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.
Great food and drinks with wonderful service! Great place to have in Newton.
The food was excellent and this was our second time in a month. Highly recommend it.
Wonderful meal outside. Food always great, and the folks who own and work at Farmstead are wonderful.
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.
The popovers were great!
Beautiful food and lovely outside seating- friendly service and wonderful night! Will return!
Everything was good except outdoor chairs are super uncomfortable.
Really creative menu, with great quality. We sat outside and it was a very pleasant environment. Highly recommend
Because we moved out of the neighborhood and then the pandemic, this is the first time we have eaten here in 2 years. We used to go regularly and were pleased to find that all the things we loved are still in place: excellent food that is nuanced and not overly fussy but not bland at all and superb service. We even had the same fabulous waiter we used to have over the years!
Great food, service and ambiance:)
While it was pleasant to eat outside, well spaced from other diners, this restaurant is okay but I expected more given the price point. I went for a Sunday brunch. Sadly, they seem to have run out of much of what we wanted to order. Maybe they anticipated a lower number of diners given the spike in Covid. Still, at their prices I hope they will be more prepared for the last brunch seating of diners in the future. I will give it another try though. Nice ambiance and good location in Newton Centre.
Very nice brunch spot. Would like to see more plant based/vegan options
Food was delicious and nicely presented. Menu for Sunday brunch was simple but everyone was able to find something to please
Food here is delicious. Lackluster environment that needs TLC. Service could be better. More enthusiasm and full service attention. Bit of an attitude. Back patio needs work. Tend to flowers and repaint.
Really delicious food and very good service. The only problem was the patio area was super hot. The bricks were radiating heat!
Good selection of vegitarian and GF
Mussels were extremely tasty and the Seabass sauce was to die for.
Great birthday dinner!
The muscles were to die from, and the swordfish–defies description. Engaging, happy staff. Great experience!
The food was great, but our server was plain horrible. I hope they give better training to their staff.
This is our first time that opentable reviews misguided us for the selection of this restaurant for dinner. The choices for dinner are not those shown under “menu”. The cost is at least $$$ and not $$ as shown.
Food was not tasty
I hadn’t been to the Farmstead Table in a few years. Loved eating on the back patio. My sweet corn risotto was outstanding and my husband really enjoyed his swordfish kebabs. The service is always exceptional. It was my favorite meal of the summer! Will go back again I. The near future.
Really good, fresh food. Fun spot. We keep going back!
the red seats, while they look nice, are incredibly uncomfortable - the salad had no taste at all and was really hard to eat. It as supposed to be "local lettuces" but really was only romaine and two strips of it. About two slices of radishes and a few tomatoes. The truffle fries were delicious as were the popovers, which was a nice touch. The luncheon menu was very limited - i was taking my niece out to lunch for her birthday and we both admitted we were still hungry after lunch -
We love the popovers! First time since Covid shutdown. Glad that they are still in business
Farmstead is open again -- and terrific again. Maybe better than ever. Service is outstanding (Thanks, John), food adventurous and excellent, and the bar as always has a great selection of liquors. We ate inside, but we see that many choose outside, which is well-set-up for dining along Union Street. You can't go wrong.
Truffle fries were great and the bacon on my burger was amazing. The beef of the burger was ok. fiance got some plum, prosciutto, cheese dish... it had 1 piece of prosciutto, maybe half a plum, a giant cheese ball, and 4 thumb sized pieces of good bread.
definitely has the you pay more for organic (Burger $21 and Fresh Maplebrook Burrata $17).
Restaurant was quiet, we were the only customers inside though there were others on back deck. It was so quiet inside we could hear the gossip of employees.
Fiance never drinks tap water, but found this water to be delicious.
A good date spot if you like exclusivity and a rustic vibe.
