This is a great restaurant for most occasions. I often use it for business lunches. The food is outstanding with an effort to create interesting menus with local ingredients that are fresh and healthy.
Just because I go to a restaurant, does not mean I'm signing up for an onslaught of promotional emails and and this review. Please take me Off the email list!
Because you asked: The waitress was lovely and unobtrusive. My chicken was undercooked. Hardly a potato or vegetable with it. Ambience pleasant. I had to ask for bread to be brought to our table of 5. The bread was excellent, but why should I have to ask? The entire meal was far too expensive for its quality.
My main complaint is the arrival of emails the minute I made a reservation on line -reminders, promotion, review.
Very nice lunch menu with interesting options that you won't find everywhere. Nice use of local ingredients and combinations of different foods. Very tasty.
Pricey.. food was ok. Kid being charged $17 for a burger was a bit extreme.
My friend and I had a perfectly lovely time and brunch on Sunday the 6th. It is my 'go to' place for a good meal and to meet a friend.
Great food, attentive service and comfortable ambience.
Wonderful ambiance and service. Expensive for what it is, in my opinion .
Very nice atmosphere but soup and chicken taco were too salty and Popover was over baked.
This is a special occasion sort of place. The food is very good, but it's expensive. The ambience is fine unless you happen to be seated near a noisy group - the tables are set close together.
Perfect- delicious and surprising courses, will be back for sure
Food was delicious and fresh and well prepared. The tables and chairs are not comfortable so its hard to relax.
We had a very nice time and hope to come back again soon! Thank you for making our first time at Farmstead memorable and enjoyable. The food was delicious...
My Mother and I went for an early dinner and received wonderful attention from our servers. We enjoyed the fresh popovers, shared the crab and avocado salad and each had the special scallop entree. Our server recommended a wonderful, reasonably priced bottle of Italian wine. It was a delightful evening and we look forward to our next visit.
Delicious food, fantastic service, just a little pricey .
My third or fourth time at Farmstead. Each visit has been fantastic. DO NOT miss the popovers! Drumlin Farm beets were to die for. Never had a bad dish here. Super staff too. Highly recommended!
My wife and I had an early Friday dinner prior to a tragic BC football game. We split the blue crab appetizer and each had a special - scotch salmon and Berkshire pork chop. The food was well executed and tasty, the service and bar service were friendly and efficient, the room is cheerful and attractive. We have been here three times and have never had a dish that wasn't just right. This is a very good restaurant.
Not a cheap lunch but food is good every time. Popovers, salad w blueberries and grilled chicken and chicken tacos was a special sisters lunch treat.
The food is amazing, the service is great. This local gem is consistently a favorite!
They ran out of the fish early in the day. Should plan better.
Service wasn’t great. Food was average for this price point.
Will definitely be back!
Delicious-sounding dishes, verified by our selections, each of which had fresh, ingeniously combined ingredients with discrete but complementary flavors.
This was a delightful place to have a birthday lunch with good friends! First, we started off with Popovers that this restaurant is known for. Delicious! The fare is light, creatively presented, and mouthwateringly good! We topped off our birthday lunch with the delectable hazelnut/expresso tart. The portion was large enough for the three of us to share. Our pleasant waitress encouraged us to have a good time. She was attentive with refills of water and ice tea. We had all looked forward to this event and our choice of restaurant turned out to be perfect1
Farmstead has consistently great service and food - much of that sourced locally. Salads and popovers are not to be missed. Fish is always prepared perfectly. Service is attentive. House wine is great. Atmosphere is relatively quiet and calm and unhurried (you can carry on a conversation without raising your voice ...). It is a go to dinner on weekdays, weekends, birthdays, graduations, New Years, or just when the spirit moves.
Add some background music for ambiance & addl wait staff...
otherwise delicious meal.
A small welcoming restaurant with interesting preparations, a friendly staff, and a great place for a nice quiet meal. The popovers and the swordfish with carrots and radishes were fantastic. Just a delight
Food was quite good. A bit pricey since the portions are pretty small. The corn tacos and the bluefish were good. Was a little disappointed that the website touted its large selection of vegetarian options, but there were not that many - I guess with a name like "Farmstead Table" I was expecting a bit more. Ambiance s bit lacking. Nice tables, but hard chairs are not the most comfortable.
We were meeting old friends — had a wonderful time catching up over a lovely meal
Very yummy, and great ambiance
Food prepared very well and very tasty. Portions: The fish portion was reasonable though not generous. It was quite sufficient for reasonable eating. The vegetables that went with the fish were well presented but the portion size was skimpy for the price.
The Drumlin Farm Beets
Basil walnut pesto
French feta, za’atar, evoo was a bit disappointing with the Walnuts Pesto being more bitter than flavorful but the beets were excellent.
Street Corn Tacos
Whipped avocado, Salvadorian curtido, cotija
grilled corn tortillas, house-made hot sauce aioli Were excellent!
2 visits there I had Blueberry Black Raspberry Cobbler
Basil bergamot ice cream, corn meal biscuit topping and that is a must if you like desert.
I will return!
A plate full of inedible pea stems and a cut up plum a popover and $20 bill . So disappointed. Waitress could care less. Too bad . It used to be good
Excellent food! Been there 3 times and everytime I'm blown away by how amazing the food is.
Meals magnificent as usual but prices have certainly risen over the last year or so
Food was excellent, but service was slow. We have noticed this before when dining. Waitstaff was very, very nice, but it was a bummer to have to wait so long between courses.
Waiter was very good, food was great. It was a hot night and expected a big crowd, but it was rather quiet at 6 pm. I had made reservations the day before, just in case. A bit pricey, but it is worth the good service and fresh food. I got the swordfish and my friend got the special of scallops. We would go back.
Went for dinner during a hot day and it was a delight. Tons of healthy, local options. We actually ate all of the apps/small plates and had the turnovers. Service was great. Would definitely go again.
Delightful! Great, fresh food
Johnny was great! Food was very good.
One of the best restaurants around! Fabulous service - friendly, fun, gave great suggestions and knew every detail on the menu. Food was outstanding as usual. We had corn tacos as an appetizer and the scallop “fish of the day” for an entree. Outstanding flavors while being light and delicious. Highly recommend. We’ll be back soon!
We had another lovely luncheon experience. Thank you to the staff.
