    Meh. The Octopus could have been more tender. If you’re going to serve sturgeon, a trash fish for meat, it better be a great preparation, not! The prawn wasn’t bad but 1 large shrimp really. Rabbit ok not bad. Desert passable but not great The wines were really good. One word, disappointing.

    Our first visit...had a bit of trouble finding as it is located above the market. Atmosphere is nice, tables inside and out and booth options. Menu had many great options and they offer kids items. We ordered a Caesar salad which was generous for 2 people. Presentation was lovely , greens fresh but the dressing was extremely lacking in any flavor? Occasionally a hint of lemon but that was it. No pepper was offered with the salad either. We were disappointed to say the least ,since the description had our mouths watering to try. We ordered the potato gnocchi ($25) and the fresh grouper($33) entrees. While both entrees were delicious, we felt the quantity of food did not align with the price. Portions are extremely small...al a carte items are offered but that adds an additional $15 to your tab. Just FYI.

    Very hyped up for what the restaurant advertises. I bought a voucher from Travelzoo for $75.00 towards meal worth upto $115.00 and this promotion ended in October. We went to dine there two days ago and used the voucher for food worth in excess of $75.00 and we paid the additional dollar amount in credit card. The food is mediocre and the service was poor. We will not dine there again. Beware of Travelzoo deals and these vouchers are not worth buying!

    Although I know this wonderful place is closing very soon, I was disappointed to arrive at the restaurant at 6:01 p.m. and be told that Happy Hour was over. The FarmTable Cucina website clearly states that Happy Hour lasts until 6:30 p.m., which I pointed out to the person who told me I could not order from the Happy Hour food menu (yes, I looked it up right then). On the other hand, sommelier Julian was fabulous as always.

    I used to love this place, but I feel like it’s clear they are just phoning it in at this point. My fish and lentils were bland, another pasta dish looked like a microwave meal, and my cocktail came out Pink.....when it was gin and champagne, so clearly not even the bartender cared. So disappointed.

    Food was overpriced and it was just ok. I was really looking forward to eating here, but it wasn’t anything special. The burrata appetizer dish sounded interesting, but was bland. My salmon was just ok and the squid ink pasta was very salty. I wouldn’t come back when there are so many other restaurants to try in the Tampa/St. Pete area. I think this restaurant must have been great at one time, but has gone downhill.

    Didn't know beforehand that the restaurant was scheduled to close forever on December 29th and all the employees would lose their jobs. The food and service reflected a lack of care and was not very good. A big disappointment since we were here for Thanksgiving in 2018 and the food and service were amazing. We began to suspect something was very wrong when it took almost 30 minutes to get our cocktails, at a time when it wasn't very busy yet. Then, discovering that there were no implements (seafood forks) for the crab legs, mussels and fresh oysters. We had to use our dinner forks!!! Last year's cheese board was amazing, but this year only one cheese and one salami and mortadella. No olives or other usual accompaniments. The main course was served entree-style, not buffet. The turkey was not very good and the portions were meager. When you pay $69 for a Thanksgiving buffet, you expect a buffet. In all, our bill was over $230 with cocktails and wine, two of which were comped because of the poor service. The highlight of the afternoon was the validation of our parking valet. That should say it all...

    My wife and I wanted to try Farm Table Cucina before it closes at the end of the year. We have been downstairs for lunch and shopping many times since Locale Market opened, but this was our first visit upstairs at Cucina. We were seated at a nice, quiet table in the back overlooking the bar. Our server, Mathew, was very pleasant and efficient. He did a nice job explaining the menu and steered us to the fried cauliflower for an appetizer. It had various spices, bacon, and a sauce with some zip. I liked it. My wife did not. But, we agreed it was way over priced for what it was, basically, cauliflower. Our entree’s were excellent, however. I had the Triple Tail fish and my wife had the porcini and mixed mushroom pasta. We shared each other’s and enjoyed both very much. We had a reasonably priced unoaked Chardonnay that went well with both entree’s. All-in-all a nice meal in a nice atmosphere. Unfortunately, this restaurant will be gone in a month, and BE-1 is redesigning the entire space for an Armature Works type food court similar to that on Riverwalk in Tampa. I’m just hoping BE-1 doesn’t ruin this venue like they are on their way to doing to one of the best restaurants in St. Pete’s Passa-Grille. This same BE-1 acquired SeaCritters, a quaint waterside restaurant that has been a favorite of locals in this beach community, and those in nearby Tierra Verde and Bayway Isle for over 20 years. In less than 6 months BE-1 has changed the best, fresh lime-juiced Margarita on the beach to a blah mix, while raising prices, and reducing the clientele to unwitting tourists, while losing most of their loyal, long term customers. This “experiment” is a business school case in failing to listen to customers (and their feet leaving)...What a shame. Hope the new venture at Sundial in downtown St. Pete goes better than BE-1’s SeaCritters “experiment”.

    As always the food was excellent. The only disappointment was that the tree lightning for Sundial was going on and where we sat the voice level was high and the screaming kids running around (using the restaurant bathrooms). I am so sorry FarmTable will be leaving. My husband and I have enjoyed the dinners and happy hour over the years. Hope they will pop up somewhere else. Thanks again.

    WOW! I have traveled to many places and eaten in some very well known restaurants. Who knew I had such a gem in my own back yard?!?!!! We will definitely be eating here again, taking people to dinner here and recommending it to people! Everything was delicious. The only dish we didn't eat were the potatoes. Not because they weren't good but they were "just potatoes" compared to everything else we had.

    We ordered the "tasting menu" recommended by Chef Kendra. It was a 5-course extravagant sampling of what the FarmTable Cucina has to offer selected by the Chef Kendra in our case. Once started, imaginative delicious dishes kept rolling out of the kitchen as just the right pace. Our server was great too. The tasting menu was ordered by requested and not listed on the main menu, but it ran $60 per person. Considering the scope and quality of our dishes the tasting menu was no doubt the best value, but bring your appetite because the 5 courses is a lot of food to consume...so it many not be the best choice for calorie counters, but once in a while it is OK to splurge and not just order a salad w/o the dressing. FarmTable Cucina has a good vibe and would makes an excellent GF/BF date restaurant, but for a first getting-to-know-you date it was a little too noisy.
