    Very good food and service. Pancakes were excellent and the farmer’s plate was very tasty. The mimosas hit the spot! All in all, a very enjoyable brunch.

    Food was delicious, and easy to have a conversation (low noise level). Service could have been a bit more attentive, but was very friendly. Lunch was $100 for two people, so not cheap.

    Farmstead has been a neighborhood favorite for us for a number of years (although it is more than that if you do not live in Newton). Our most recent meal was excellent! Mushroom board, Seatrout, and Cioppino were fun and presented beautifully, the portions generous, and the wait staff informed and excited about the menu. Overall a wonderful experience. We will be back, as always.

    Celebrating new job for our daughter. Visit was great though our kids thought it took much too long to get the food to the table. It did take a great deal of time but was so delicious! It was our second time dining and did not disappoint.

    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.
