Great presentation, thoughtfully prepared food and a really nice neighborhood feel.
If you are looking for an organic, creative and scrumptious meal, I highly recommend Farmstead Table. From the moment you walk in until you finish your meal, you are greeted with a warm smile, informative staff and creative food choices that will make you want more.
We had the fresh halibut with a fresh garden salad and the lobster BLT. The food was filling, delicious and packed with flavor. We need with their strawberry rhubarb cobbler topped with almond vanilla ice cream. It was the perfect ending to the meal.
One of our favorite places to dine. Whether a special event or just a usual dinner, dining at Farmstead Table never ceases to impress me!
Order the popovers & jam no matter what else you order. The salad this time was also a stand-out - strawberry, goat cheese, almonds. Elegant and down-to-earth service. It would be good if there were more vegetarian options but there are small plates. I didn't order so can't comment.
Farmstead Table remains one of my sisters and my favorite restaurants in Newton Center. We love to enjoy ladies' lunch there. The menu reflects the season and the specials always the freshest and creative ideas coming from Chef. Yesterday there was a John Dorry on the menu (a white fish which tastes a little like trout). Delicious! One of us tried the lobster sandwich which was a very generous and full portion of lobster. We could not skip the popovers which are absolutely yummy.
We ended our meal by sharing the chocolate almond mousse torte. Just a perfect ending to a satisfying meal. Our server, Ericka, took great care of us--attentive while allowing us to enjoy our sisters reunion.
Fabulous food in this neighborhood surprise. The locally sourced food is fresh and vibrant, with unique options of proteins and fresh veggies. There is an intimate, comfortable feel to the restaurant which is very inviting. The staff are welcoming and attentive, warm and professional. Loved it!
Our server, John, was enthusiastic and charming (as was Libby, whom I had met before). The mushroom bisque was like a dessert, it was so "transportive" (is that even a word?). The salad "of the day" was sprinkled with a cheese so salty it rendered the salad *inedible. But, heck, that soup almost made up for it.....
*we told John, and he seemed to know this (I gather we were not the 1st to mention it); but our uneaten portions went back, with no mea culpa.
Lobster BLT was the bomb! Not a big place with a big menu, but what they offer is excellent. Known for their oven fresh popovers......
Charming place, wonderfully prepared food, excellent service
Lovely meal. Everything was delicious! Exceeded my expectations.
Enjoyed drinks and food. Bartender/ server was great!
This was my first time at Farmstead Table. I was looking for a place in Newton to meet a friend who is gluten free and the reviews online were good. We were not disappointed. The menu is awesome, in fact it was hard to decide what to order. We ended up selecting three plates to share - burrata, brussel sprouts, and mushroom risotto. Everything was absolutely delicious and well portioned so you don't stuff yourself. We also had the Perenial Spritz, a seasonal prosecco spritzer that was divine. We each had two...they went down very easy. Service was also great. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. The ambiance is elegant/casual with comfortable and intimate seating. I love this place and will definitely be back. Highest recommendation!!
popovers were good; fish (small portion) was overcooked
Excellent food and good wait staff. Greet well and fast by host and seated with our pick of location as we had a reservation. Really enjoyed the food and the cozy environment. I’d definitely come back to Farmstead.
We met another couple for brunch at Farmstead Table and had a lovely time. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxing. The hostess and server were attentive and yet gave us plenty of time to enjoy ourselves. There was no rush. The food is tasty and the presentation is very nice. My only suggestion is the portion size. The fried egg bowl is delicious, though for $16 I would have thought there would have been 2 or 3 eggs, instead there was only 1.
We had a great brunch with friends visiting from Austin. The farm to table was perfect for all of us. Our server was prompt and very attentive. The food was super fresh and delicious. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast choice. And the coffee was excellent, the “French Press” was a big hit with my husband who is very particular.
WE had a late reservation due to unavailability of an earlier slot. Ambiance OK, just plain, food good not excellent. However, the staff started shaping the floor before we were finished with our meal. TOTALLY unaccepable.
Everything we had was delicious. Hummingbird cake was outstanding! Excellent service.
Interesting and excellent brunch menu. The popovers are a treat. Pleasant decor and attentive service.
Food here was amazing. I highly recommend their chicken dish!
Great service and simple but interesting menu. Beet salad was incredibly flavorful.
However, entree Pork chop was tough and dry although sauce with chop was very good. Overall, great service, menu, location, freshness and will return for certain...Just don’t recommend pork chop entree.
Always wonderful. A bit on the pricey side but well worth it. Second visit on our weeklong trip in the area.
Quaint restaurant in Newton Center- great service and delicious food. Best Trout in Boston. Seriously!
Farmstead Table never disappoints! Today's lunch was delicious: Had the fish of the day which was a lovely trout with perfect asparagus and almost perfect roasted potatoes. Of course the popovers are to die for. Service was fine. And noise level was quiet even though the restaurant was more than half full for an early lunch.
This is my new favorite. The food is spectacular, service is attentive (but not pretentious) and if you plan ahead, getting a table is easy.
Great brunch for Mother's Day. Very inventive and delicious food!
Brought my mom for Mother's Day. I thought it would be more busy, but there were a few empty tables. We got our food quickly and it was very fresh and tasty. Of course, we had to get a basket of popovers, which were warm and delicious with some butter and jam. I had the crab toast with a nice portion of crab meat on top, along with some greens and avocado. Mom got the quiche which was very cheese. The texture was very soft, so this might bother some people.
Delicious food! We had the specials. Super waiter! Great place!
We had a delicious meal and our server was excellent!
My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Farmstead Table this weekend. We started with a basket of wonderful popovers with butter and homemade peach jam, along with some very refreshing mango lemonade. My husband ordered the spicy lamb ragu, which he loved. I had the beet salad, which was wonderful, and the pork chop with an amazing sour cherry gastrique. It was my husband's birthday and I had a cake for him back home, so we didn't order dessert, but the desserts looked fabulous. We'll definitely be back!
Fresh ingredients, cozy vibe, homey
We had a terrific meal at Farmstead. Everything was top notch: Brussels sprouts tacos, mushroom risotto and chocolate almond torte perfectly executed. A nice selection of wines, even the ones by the glass were very good (we tried Chardonnay and Cabernet). Hope to find an occasion to visit again soon.
My friend and I were greeted with a smile and enjoyed a light, fresh lunch in a casual atmosphere. Great service and a nice menu rounded out a very nice experience. We'll be back!
A small intimate restaurant in the Hart of Newton center with excellent food and an attentive wait staff. The spicy lamb ragu was a fluffy bowl of home made pasta that was perfectly seasoned. The fillet was top notch and seared to perfection. The bar manager and server was very knowledgeable and informative. This was a great find and is now one of my top favorite restaurants.
Another excellent meal at Farmstead Table. The special was scallops, and were delicious. Never disappointed.
Excellent tenderloins of beef and pork chop . Wonderful hummingbird cake
Salad is nothing special yet I paid $20 for a small portion of lettuce. In addition, I asked for balsamic vinegar, and it never arrived. When I asked the third time I was told that they don’t have it. Why not tell me right away instead of having me wait 15 mins until I asked again. I wouldn’t go back.
We enjoyed a lovely meal with friends. Menu is limited but all very delicious and the wine recommended by the waitress was just right.
A small quaint place with big a personality of food! Great waiter very friendly atmosphere!
excellent farm to table. tried many dishes, never disappointed. afraid to rave too much or it may become too crowded.
