The food was too salty.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Every person in the restaurant was very kind and accommodating. Our waitress was very knowledgeable on the wine-list and gave us good recommendations. The food was excellent, we ordered way too much food and loved all of it! I would definitely come back again!
We went for A Sunday supper. The meal was incredible, very filling and a great value. The service was excellent, everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. Really nice atmosphere, overall a great experience. We will be back!
Amazing food as always especially the soft shell crab dish. Glad to see they have half bottle wine selection since it was just 2 of us and a full bottle would have been too much.
My absolute favorite restaurant in California. Every detail is exquisite. Everytime I visit is better than the last. I recommend to do the family feast where the chef's choose for you. Such a magical experience. Love you Homestead. Thank you for another amazing birthday celebration.
Fab food. I have been there twice in last couple of weeks and the menu
is always new and innovative. Love the interesting and unusual dishes (anchovies whole
in a little gems salad) that was a first for me eating whole anchovies.
Sunday supper is our favorite! It’s always delicious
WAAAAAAAY too expensive for what you get. Are nose rings sanitary?
We so enjoyed Sunday supper at Homestead, steak and eggs, so wonderful, and waffles for dessert that were outstanding. The environment is casual, Fred, the owner is always welcoming, and the cooking is very sophisticated and always tasty. The servers are always pleasant and efficient, everyone steps up to help out so that the overall service is always very good.
Sunday supper menus are a blast. This past Sunday was breakfast for dinner-amazing smoked salmon appetizer, steak and eggs with biscuits, and finished with waffles and wonderful peaches. Delicious!
I just think the owner don’t need to be walking the floor the hole time looking at people while the eat there food I think that was crazy
Enjoyed the short rib and beautifully thought out menu. The shrimp ceviche was also excellent!
The food was outstanding. Our server was attentive to a fault. She kept interrupting our conversation to reach over the table and refill our water glasses. That almost ruined a very, very nice dinner.
Next time, I wish she would either put the glasses and water bottles near her, or check if we wanted her to keep interrupting. Frankly, I would have preferred if she poured the first glass only and without reaching across the table, then just left us alone. We could have caught her eye and summoned her if we really wanted something.
Kudos to our waitress and waiter: they were pleasantly personable and the dot on the 'i', the excellent food.
We had a most delightful and memorable anniversary evening
The food has evolved to a new level. We ordered Gazpacho soup which we never do. Prefer hot soups. But this was over the top, maybe because tomatoes are in season, but all 4 hot soup lovers were smacking their lips! Fussy vegetarian loved his egg, vegi course. They had our 2 birthday peoples’ names on our menu... They need some California wines.
We took our daughter here while visiting her, I found it on Open Table. The food was good but not worth the price of the items. The bigger issue is that they automatically included an 18% gratuity. The service was fine but we like to decide how much we would like to give. The meal was more expensive then it needed to be. We live in LA so we know about expensive restaurants.
I have been eating at Homestead since it opened. It has really been one of my favorite restaurants to go to for a lovely meal. However, the last two experiences were not as good as previous ones. I like the concept of pAying employees a liveable wage, but the price of dishes have gone up and the quality and imagination have gone down. My guest ordered the rib eye steak and it was incredibly dry, although tender. I had the salmon with but it could have used a delicious sauce to give it that extra something. The vegetables were perfectly prepared but it needed something to bring it together. I may go back again. But if the food does not improve, it may be my last.
We had an excellent dinner at Homestead. Start to finish, the food was superb. Everything was fresh, most of it was local, and it has all been prepared attentively and with creativity. Perfectly seasoned. Standouts included the softshell crab, the fennel salad, the hand cut pasta, and the watermelon sorbet with hibiscus granita. It was a hot day and we would have appreciated air-conditioning.
This was a family night meal which Means it was served on platters. tonight was prime rib night and portions were so generous I have a second meal tomorrow. Lucky me because it was incredibly delicious The meat was done perfectly and ditto for veggies. The twice cooked potatoes were crispy and I had to control my desire to eat them all
Amazing ambiance, phenomenal food made with the freshest and local ingredients with a charm that is unmatched.
One of my favorite restaurants, always such a treat! Staff is always kind and courteous. I love that the food price includes a living wage for their employees. Food is always excellent, light, and feels healthy.
Food disappointing at this visit. Not up to standard it’s been on previous visits. Soft/shell crab tasteless and undercooked.
I love this place! Consistently great food with always a new surprise on the menu.
Great service! Limited food options and not much flexibility in replacing meat options. If you are adventurous, you may want to try the chef's tasting menu. We tried a la carte and my husband loved his steak. Pasta was a bit bland and they couldn't come up with any kind of hot sauce for me. No AC. Good wine made up for anything lacking. Lively area and lots of people on the street, enjoying the weekend. Good neighborhood option.
This was our second visit to Homestead for a casual dinner outing. The first time was decent and we noted that we’d go back again during that visit, but a couple of the dishes during our second visit were oddly inedible and not I’m not sure if we’ll return. The staff were pleasant about it, didn’t charge for the dish we sent back, and comp’d a fresh salad. All in, not a bad experience...just a couple of suspiciously bad food items. We’ll watch the reviews and see, hopefully, if we just hit a bad night or just ordered the wrong things.
Fo specifics: the fried squash blossoms stuffed with mozzarella were really terrible — the fried batter was thick, over-breaded, soggy, and flavorless; the mozzarella inside was rubbery and bland; the sauce on top was uninspired. This dish might make for some good bar food, but not like any of the fried and battered squash blossoms I’ve had before. Also, a sole dish we had was bland and watery and served with bland, waterlogged shrimp and very mushy rice with a kind of Cajun-inspired hot sauce that tasted like it came from a jar. Nice try at something interesting, like a kind of jambalaya maybe, but the ingredients didn’t seem very high quality and the execution was quite poor.
On the edible end: the bread is fantastic, the tuna crudo was decent, and the arugula salad, although very simple (and also hard to mess up) was fresh and yummy.
We hope to see some better reviews of Homestead. We’d like to go back someday and give it another shot.
Food was good, but prices were higher than I remembered. The wine prices were outrageous and the corkage is $30. We were all shocked as we dine out a lot. $20 + for a glass of wine seems high.
We loved this place. The food was so fresh, very well prepared and delicious! We are looking forward to going back!
Great music. Lovely service. Memorable food tho thin selection but excellent preparation.
Would definitely return. Quiet intimate evening.
This place is one of our favorite place. Service is outstanding!
Everything was perfect except it was pretty hot in there.
Excellent Service, beautiful ambiance, great menu selection. We were not crazy about one of the main dishes, but it was not because of lack of attention, it was just not great to our specific palate. Otherwise, fabulous!
The Homestead team continues to dish up very satisfying, creative, seasonal food in a friendly relaxed environment. It has established itself as our favorite go-to restaurant for a special occasion or to satisfy self-indulgent whims. I especially like the house-made condiments (including an awesome hot sauce) that grace much of the food. The service is perfect and the Homestead team always makes one feel welcome.
Unfortunately, we were not impressed with the food. We asked for our ribeye to be cooked medium, and it came out rare. We sent it back, and they brought it back rare again. The bread and butter were delicious!!
Food was good, as always, but came out of the kitchen within minutes of sitting down. Definitely felt rushed. We ordered cheese course before Dessert to prolong our stay. Cheese was mediocre and dish was unimaginative. Asked the server to not rush the dessert out, cappuccino was Luke warm. We were out of there well within an hour and a half. Gratuity was included in Price of the dishes which I have no problem with, but maybe leads to a little bit of complacency. It was not our best experience there
Food is reliably excellent and innovative too. Floor staff are truly excellent.
No tipping takes one step out of the dining out equation!
This farm to table restaurant is always a treat. Their food is innovative and delicious. Our grilled squid was tender and perfectly prepared as were our next two courses. I could make a meal of their home made bread and love to take a loaf home. The servers are attentive and friendly.
Great food and great service. Pricey buy worth it. The small menu changes weekly with fresh, seasonal dishes. We will definitely return.
Food is excellent. Service needs some effort.
Another wonderful Sunday dinner. The food is outstanding and the ambience is relaxing. The service was 5 star. We always have a lovely time.
