Everything here is thought out and prepared to perfection. The rabbit cassoulet, the pork belly, the country pâté were all outstanding with fresh, exciting flavors. The crime brûlée was better than most. And I was happy to choose the Morgan Beaujolais to go with the meaty dining. The staff are terrific.

Tried 6 different dishes here and each of them was ahmazinggggg...
Roasted cauliflower is a must. Also tried mushroom fondue, beef tongue, wild boar chops, seared foie gras, and bison tartare. Every single dish was worthy of a reorder. Wish I had room for dessert afterwards! Also, the service was exceptional. We were celebrating our anniversary and the waiter treated us to yummy dessert wine.

I found this gem on Open Table’s neighborhood search feature. It has a very interesting and diverse menu that’s not overwhelming. Everything we had was great, especially the rabbit cassoulet, which will transport you back to Toulouse. The French-accented staff was warm and welcoming, and completed a very enjoyable dining experience.

Having been to both locations, I can confidently say I've been impressed. My favorite part is that the staff is friendly and attentive, without any of the pretension that comes along with a lot of trendy New American places I've been.

Gentleman Farmer is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant that always exceeds my expectations. The snails, the short ribs, the cod are all excellent. Service is always efficient; the music is always soft and non-intrusive. The restaurant has an unbeatable prix-fixe on most nights and even there are discounts on their wine list early in the week. Some days you can even bring your own wine. I am always surprised that the restaurant is not full--I fear that one day it will leave Myrtle Avenue and Fort Greene/Clinton Hill will be the poorer for it. Stop by! David

Thoughtful brunch menu and attention to fusions (French foi gras and Vietnamese influences). Delicate and straightforward plating. Beet salad arrived without arugula, and the latter was dearly missed. Still fresh and bright. Mimosas come in a choice of grapefruit or orange. Both Sunday servers were polite and friendly despite being slammed/long(er) wait for food to be run to entire floor. The gentleman farmer Bloody Mary was the sole underwhelming addition unfortunately. Croquet Madam and Benedict was simply delicious.

I would reccomend because the food was excellent. The noise level was overwhelming, and the service sub par. It seemed they where short staffed and we waited over an hour for our entrees and half an hour for one bowl of soup. I enjoyed the menu choices and could tell the chef used a great deal of care in preparation. The staff was minimal which made it impossible to get their attention for basic needs. It was a weekend so I would expect it's always busy. Not sure I would return, but it's an excellent choice for those who are adventurous and want to try new culinary options without the massive pricetag.

We were somewhat excited about eating here after reading the reviews and menu. We were not disappointed. Staring out with some wonderful Aperol Spritzers along the Bison Tar-Tar and Beet Salad the meal was off to a great start. My wife had TOURNEDOS ROSSINI and I the BOAR CHOP , both cooked to perfection. To finish up our experience the FOIE GRAS DESSERT with the STRAWBERRY PARFAIT were a great finish to a memorable meal. P.S.....You may feel upon reviewing the menu that the prices might be slightly high but you must consider the ingredients used.

The time on Opentable implied the restaurant stayed open later than it really did. Nonetheless, Gentleman Farmer was super accommodating and we had a fantastic meal.

Mishap on with the spiral ham on Xmas eve meant hasty reservation on Xmas day at GF. Exquisite food; charming, just-right attentive staff working a holiday. They welcomed us warmly, fed us lovely salmon and venison and wagyu beef with the most tender seared scallops, pork belly, and risotto appetizers. And the deserts were delicious. Everything was working.

Terrific neighborhood restaurant with a farmhouse/rustic feel. Casual and friendly staff. Small menu, but loaded with great selections. We visited on a cold night and our rabbit and venison dishes were flavorful and piping hot. Servings are large and almost big enough to share. Solid cocktail and wine list with good price points. Great comfort food and experience.

One in our party was stuck on public transportation, and the restaurant was very accommodating, moving the reservation back. The food was exc3llent, although limiting if you are not a meal eater. Mushroom ravioli & salmon were very good. We were splitting a salad, and our bread plates had spicy olive oil on them. But we were told to use our bread plates for the salad. That was the only negative.

Disappointing. The rack of lamb was overcooked and over-salted. The green beans wrapped in prosciutto were also too salty — you don’t need to salt something wrapped in ham. Service was slow and inattentive. Not cheap Eire. Probably our last visit.

Food was good, decor was nice. I chose it because it was described as "quiet." Well, it was quiet when we got there at 7pm on Saturday, but by 8pm it was uncomfortably noisy. Maybe it's quieter during the week, or the other reviewers were eating early.
