Wonderful food, gracious and friendly service, amazing ambiance. Looking forward to seeing everyone without face masks...they do detract from the experience and provide no viral protection as per PubMed.gov studies published over the decades.

Can’t even begin to believe any of the negative reviews of this place — it’s fantastic. The property is gorgeous, the barn/restaurant is beautiful. We were sat in one of the “stalls,” which is awesome. I had the bone in strip loin, and my lady had the trout. Both meals were delicious, not to mention, their Japanese Brioche rolls are to die for! Had a few cocktails, and finished the evening with cheesecake and their brownie. Everything was delectable. It’s not traditional — don’t go there expecting that. It’s a unique place, with a daily-changing menu based on what the local farms have to offer. Don’t be close-minded, don’t go there wanting chicken tenders and French fries — that’s what a chain restaurant is for. Go there and expect a dish planned, designed, and prepared by a legitimate chef and crew. The two of us loved the atmosphere and meal, and had excellent service.

Wonderful dinner, excellent service and amazing food. I have Celiac and they were very accommodating in terms of offering gluten free options on the menu.

Barn 8 is a really cool place, but the menu is weak at best. No red meat option at a restaurant that’s on a farm. Well except on my walk to the restrooms I noticed a nice looking steak on the plate of every third person I passed by. I have been to the restaurant several times but last night was my last. A little piece of advice, put what you can order on your menu. I’d rather pay for a over priced steak, more than a overpriced pasta dish, and some kind of trout.

Even on a cold evening, the atmosphere was welcoming and warm. The art installation walk was crisp and enjoyable. The food was great and the bathroom was so fun! Cant wait to go back.

This was our second time and we brought friends along. Our friends were impressed.
Steaks and salad were ok. Would prefer more flavor to the salad. The carrots were amazing! I should have gotten 2 plates of those.

Fiona was spectacular as our server. Kind, very sweet, and attentive. Food was ok ....definitely the price point is somewhat outrageous for the portions. We were also terribly disappointed with the selection and taste of the desserts.

This is absolutely a beautiful farm and fabulous the way they have transformed a barn into fine dining.
The menu is very limited but food is very good. Friends ordered pork chops and they were very chewy
The trout was great as was the Ciopinno.
The Art walk is a MUST!!!! Half price with dinner. Lights and sound as you walk. Absolutely mesmerizing!!!

I love this place. I really do. But our visit recently didn’t hold up to previous visits. Perhaps it was because of the holidays which requires bringing in inexperienced servers, perhaps something else, but the usual amount of attention and friendliness was missing.
Everyone has a bad night now and again, so I’ll forget this evening and return again expecting to find the usual wonderful experience that I’ve always found.

I’ve been for my anniversary and graduation, both were great. My boyfriend and I are vegetarians and they always have delicious meals to accommodate us. I would like if they had a little more variety for vegetarians but I really can’t complain at the two options they usually have. So great!

What an amazing experience. Loved everything about our evening. The atmosphere was incredible. Can't wait to come back and eat in one of the "stalls" Fiona was amazing and provided amazing service and over the top sweet to all of us. I brought my team there for our Christmas party and everyone had a wonderful time. The food was incredible and cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a great evening. The carrots are a must.

I would not recommend Barn8 to anyone. The food was not good, one of our guest did not get his half cooked chicken until the rest of us we’re almost finished eating. No apologies just poor service, very disappointing and embarrassing.
It is way overpriced for the poor quality of food.
