Since 1986 Friend of a Farmer has been a pioneer in the farm-to-table movement. We’ve created a reputation for seasonally fresh and local ingredients within an atmosphere unlike anything else in New York City.

To provide our guests with a warm familiar feeling found only in the countryside, we’ve carefully crafted and hand built all of the wooden columns, ceilings, floors, and fireplaces.

Our specialty cocktails and homemade juices are all pressed at the farm. The seasonal ingredients, homemade syrups, infused liquors and balanced pours blend beautifully to create a unique and delicious finish.

Our wines are carefully selected and primarily focused around the boutique, family owned vineyards, many of which are sustainable and bio-dynamic.

Thirty later and Friend of a Farmer still remains a family owned business that has stayed true to its roots and concept.

We are an older couple and of course, they sat us near a work area....but we didn't let that spoil our experience. I had the Irving Place Omelet, the menu makes it look like it doesn't come with any sides which makes you think you need to order a side.....but it does come with potatoes. Also, if you are a coffee lover, the large French coffee press is excellent but won't be enough for two if you are used to having 2 mugs in the morning.

My chicken pot pie had virtually no chicken in it. The dish consisted mainly of scalding hot liquid with some cooked (almost like from a can) vegetables. The crust was unremarkable. My friend's salad also was disappointing. Plus the room became so noisy that it was hard to hear one another. We left as soon as we could.

When we were waiting for our food, we saw a mouse. I asked the staff to move us to another room. They were very nice. However, our bill was still $250, they gave us desert for free. This is a health hazard and I expected more from this restaurant because I go often. Won't be returning.

We had a lovely breakfast at this restaurant and were so impressed with the friendliness of the staff, particularly our waiter (whose name we didn’t catch but he was keen to have a chat about the upcoming football scores)! The blueberry pancakes were so light & fluffy and loved the location. Super central but off the main avenues, making it nice & quiet. Could have sat outside all day watching the world go by. Highly recommended!

The last two times we had early dinner, service was awful and the food was slow to be served and then cold and overcooked. Waiters have little experience. On the last occasion, the waiter poured the seltzer water all over my wife's legs and did not even apologize. The bread had to be sent back since it was not fresh and the cauliflower took over 45 minutes to arrive- then it was undercooked. Everything was pretty much underwhelming. Perhaps they need to train the staff.

The seating, though was very tight and the top floor back room was undesirable (even winding around tight quarters to get to it) not to mention a scary fire trap if one should happen. The kitchen stations were minuscule- somehow though the staff created great food and managed the chaos sufficiently. Top floor is not desirable for seniors.

This was the former and excellent. The corn salad - outstanding. We both had the salmon - cooked to perfection. Excellent value and excellent ambiance. Would highly recommend.

We didn’t get menus for 20 minutes because they had a shortage of them and the waiting brought our drinks in waves even though we ordered all at once and it took him a long time to come and take our order. Would not rush back here.

It is adorable, QUIET, and the food is delicious. The best part was the delicious ice cream sandwich for dessert. I loved it and can't wait to come back. We had a wonderful server, and were just so pleased with this place. If you need a quiet place to take your parents that is cozy, and has character and great food, definitely visit this place.

Although I've had breakfast and luncheon here before, this was my first time for dinner. It was absolutely outstanding.

Now I have -- and won't go again. The lunch menu is appealing but the food itself was disappointing. My omelette had good ingredients but was on the dry side, not much better (if at all) than what one would get at a coffee shop. Even though Friend of a Farmer is known for its bread, we didn't get any with our meal. And, I'm not usually picky about this, but the service was bad. Things at the front desk were slow and disorganized. Our waiter seemed to think we (two older women) would be dazzled by his looks and charm. We weren't. But we were irritated that it took at least 30 minutes to get a cup of tea. The final excuse was the restaurant was out of cups. Really???

Food was outstanding, real farm to table. Our server Ari was very knowledgeable and very friendly. His advised us on the food options. How is it possible that I’ve never heard of this place?! Probably people want to keep it a secret.

Roasted cauliflower should actually be cooked through! And how hard is it to make a tasty salad? We couldn't get bread until after the meal was nearly finished and we were never checked on....

Were seated in a quiet area which we wanted. House salad was very good, although main entree came to us cool, not hot. Told them we had to go to a concert and they got us out in time. Will try again. Cornbread crunchy and delicious
