Almost everyone loved their meals.. The chicken was a bit undercooked for the patron's taste. But beet salad and regular salad starters delicious. And swordfish special yummy.

The wait staff is exceptional, never intruding but always available, and the food is exceptional. The selection of a few items is made difficult given the excellent options available to choose. Taking the time to make your selection is made easier by enjoying their wonderful fresh baked home-made pop-overs and excellent fresh fruit jams and enjoy a cup of the french pressed coffees.

Farmstead is my "go-to" place when I want to meet some old friends and catch up! The food is always fresh; the service great and it's located right in Newton Centre which has lots of shops and stores to walk into afterwards.

Dependable, Consistent and Tasty!

I return to this eatery again and again for a lunch get together, it is a small size restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere and whose staff are friendly and accommodating. Food is comsistant, often dietary requests or preferences are accomodated. Each person that I have taken here has enjoyed it was well, fro. My elderly mom to my girlfriends for a proper lunch get together or a taking a friend out for a birthday lunch.

Pleasant, and repeatable....

Excellent food for brunch. Our group enjoyed a mix of breakfast and lunch options. The popovers were fantastic as was the blueberry pancakes, Blt salad and the avocado toast with crabmeat and fried eggs. They were child friendly and did not seem annoyed when our baby spilled water on the ground. They even had the highchair ready for us when I requested it on opentable which I appreciated. It was a quiet and relaxing environment perfect for facilitating conversation with friends that we were catching up with. We would come back here.

If you serve Bloody Mary, don’t ask how spicy the customer wants it and the owners are against plastic straws, then at least consider providing reusable straws.

My best friend and I have been meeting at Farmstead Table every few months for the last few years to enjoy a delicious meal and celebrate our friendship. The menu is always tasty, seasonally appropriate and easy to navigate for gluten free and vegetarian options. The setting is cozy and the staff is always friendly and just the right amount of attentive. Enjoy!

This is a wonderful local restaurant with delicious food. I like how they pair what is being harvested with recipes. My fish entree had a grain that was mixed with corn and blueberries and it was such a nice combination.

Great tasty farm to table cozy restaurant.
Menu is seasonal but always great options for vegetarians to fish to meat.
The taco appetizer is always great.
Beet salad is good with some cheese, nuts and green pesto.
The scallops special was great. Cooked to perfection, on top of corn purée en veggies.
Save room for the fruit (blueberry) cobbler . Topping is slightly different than most, similar to a corn biscuit , served with ice cream.
Very nice coffee (pressed at your table)

While the food was tasty and the service good, the pricing was a bit extravagant for the overall experience. Ambiance was middle of the road to campy, and for a warm evening, the A/C was not great. $300 for dinner for 4 commands a bit more than what we got.

It took quite a while to place our drink order and longer than expected to get them delivered. Our waiter may have gotten a large group right before we sat down. After waiting quite a while for drinks, our dinners came out almost too quickly. I ordered a fish dish without bacon & it came with - may have been the runner’s error, but they sent a correct plate pretty quickly.

Usually we would rate the food here five stars. Last night we all chose a five seared scallop main course with chanterelles and fingerlings served in a few spoonfuls of broth. It was pleasant but not up to the best of Farmstead. Dessert was a "hummingbird" cake, a golden delight with a thick, delicate white buttery frosting: perfection. One of us had a cold, smooth, yogurt cucumber soup which was delicious save for the lack of some texture such as diced cucumber.

Everything was terrific except for the fact that one of our party had a gluten free diet and there was no gluten free bread as an option.
Our recommendation is for the addition of gluten free bread for patrons.
It was still a great meal.
