    Fantastic brunch with a unique brunch menu and incredible ambiance on a cold winter day with the sun shining into the restaurant. Highly recommend the popovers, mushroom toast and apple salad. Service was great and the prices are very reasonable.

    I went here for my birthday dinner and had the greatest time. Our food was delicious. The Roasted Delicata Squash was super tasty. The Crispy Brussels Sprouts Tacos were amazing (better than any meat taco I've had, and I like meat!). The Wild Mushroom Toast was fantastic, and the Pan-seared Icelandic Cod was cooked so nicely and had GREAT flavor. Our waitress, Sarah, was so sweet and fun. One of our favorite things about the experience was that we asked if they could make us a mock-tail with some ginger and citrus flavors, and the bartender created a DELICIOUS drink with such pretty garnish. This made the experience extra special because we don't drink alcohol. I will definitely be going back, and will refer my friends!

    food was as always great. We especially loved the appetizers - the clams are wonderful and their sauce calls for licking the plate clean. Crispy brussels sprouts were excellent and the combination with the tahini worked well.

    Upon entering, the hostess was on the phone and engaged in 2 calls before acknowledging our party's presence in front of her. The lamb special was less than special. But the rest of the meals were great and the service, given that there was only one server (with the bartender and the hostess filling in) was outstanding. Despite the first encounter and the lamb, I intend to go back and would recommend Farmstead Table to friends.

    This was the perfect choice for a medium sized event we had and I can't say enough positive things about Farmstead Table! Inside is really cute, they had a great spot for our group that was large enough to accommodate everyone, even when our group grew slightly larger than reservation size. Every employee I interacted with was cheerful and helpful and our server was excellent. The food was really good- presentation was nice and everything was tasty and fresh. Parking is street parking, but we all found something closeby without issue. I'm looking forward to going back here with a smaller party to enjoy the food and ambience and check out downtown.

    Excellent food, lamb shank was spectacular, so tender the meat fell off bone and the flavor delicious. The pork and Greek chicken orzo soup was also fantastic. The Farmstead Table always delivers great meals and the atmosphere is warm and friendly.

    Farmstead Table has a great menu ranging from red meat to chicken, fish, and vegan dishes. We started with the popovers, which were warm and delicious. There were four of us and we all thought our entrees were excellent: pork chops, salmon, and squash and sweet potato ravioli.

    Great little stop along the way to Natick. Food was high quality, well prepared and super tasty with just the right size portions. Try the Mussels and ask for extra grill bread to scoop up the last bits of that incredible broth. You won't be disappointed. Pricey but worth it

    Used to like Farmstead a lot. Haven't been in a few years. Surly server--unfriendly, curt-- which created a bad vibe. Food was ok but could not make up for bad-tempered server. The overall ambience and energy seemed muted and tense. Will never go here again. Too many other places to try or support.

    Long wait to be recognized standing at the desk, followed by pretentious staff who forgot the order and had to return to table. Chicken vastly overcooked and rubbery. Unfortunately when asked how our food was, server walked away before an answer could be given. Just the omnipotent , we are wonderful and above reproach attitude. Very disappointed in the experience.
