Really fun place in a secret setting!
Busy place, attractive interior and food was outstanding.
Great to have this nostalgic restaurant in the woods near the lake.
Exceptional ambiance, food and service. What a pleasure!
fantastic atmosphere, great food and service is first rate
perfection !!!! truly hidden gem in Michigan City
We have been here several times and the food is fantastic. It lots lots of options and great quality. The outdoor patio is perfect for dining. Just a note that this is in Central Time, We Came from Union Pier and didn't realize there was a time zone change.
Fantastic, as always. Notified server the chicken marsala was salty.
Everything else, and every aspect of the meal, was excellent
We loved the ambiance and the restaurant. Our service was very good and personable. Calamari was perfect, tiramisu excellent and chicken was delicious. However, the Bolognese would have been better without the Italian sausage. Overall a good experience. Will go back.
A hidden gem that never disappoints! Exquisite menu is filled with a broad selection of delicious entrees, appetizers and unique cocktails. If you haven’t been here, you need to go!
In the old Duneland Inn. Downside, bathrooms weren't working . Apparently a broken septic tank. Not good for a restaurant. We were seated according to our reservation. Very noisy. Like so many places short staffed but trying hard.
Food was good , but quantities excessive. Pricing fair.
Would recommend because there are limited choices is the area
Was a little slow
Jamie, our waitress, was fantastic. Service is incredible. Wait staff is very courteous and very attentive. Food was delicious.
Sunday crew in kitchen. Had steak frit and French fries arrived stone cold with steak swimming in thin watery juice like it had been microwaved to temp.
Outstanding. Lido our waiter was wonderful, as was our busboy William and the Hostess. Very personable young people. I cannot express in more glowing terms how wonderful it was.
We have been coming to Farinas since it originally opened. The service then was five star. The last three times we felt the service was below average. Yesterday it took the waiter over twenty minutes to take our order. When the entrees came they hadn’t even cleared the salad dishes. Going to take a break for awhile and see if things improve.
The food was really good the prices were fair considering the quality of the food there garlic bread was absolutely delicious Chocolate Cake was really yummy
The host, bartenders, food runners, etc. were over the top wonderful. Our waitress, however, was pretty slow and inattentive. I would still go back, but try for a different section. Food is awesome.
Food was fantastic. Enjoyed sitting outside. One loud table but didn't spoil our evening. Looking forward to our next visit...
We were in town from Baltimore and really enjoyed every aspect of your restaurant!
Food was great, however, they didn’t have the Chicken Marsala or the Neighborhood Platter both of which we wanted. Ambiance great but better with music in the background which for some reason was turned off around
8 pm. We waited an hour for our dinner which apparently was because of underestimating how many people were ordering the Brick Chicken. The restaurant was full on a Thursday evening which was nice to see. Would we go back? Absolutely!
We feel that this place needs another chance. We would go back but we’ll be waiting so we have an open mind.
We where referred to the Supper
I struggle with this because I really want to love this place. It is so cute! The location is fun and I try to support independent businesses as much as I can. But last evening was than enjoyable we pulled in for our reservation and was asked to move car really close to next car ok we thought limited parking, went and checked in we were taken to a small room off the main dining room close to the bar so far so good we thought it was lovely. Long story short server and the server she was training forgot about us all evening we were served drinks and then ni one came back to take our order for 30 minutes , they were busy in main room they made our little room noisey. I felt like we were seated at the kiddie table. After ordering food was brought by someone other than server med prime rib was well done no pink at all and not served w au jus or hours a radish although without asking my hourseradish sauce was brought with out me asking since server never checked on us after I asked for box to take it home (portions are huge) chicken parmesan was really good . side pasta was not al dente but mush and mashed potatoes were lumpy without flavor. We didn't eat or bring these home. Had to flag server to take check and watch her carry it while greeting 3 new tables we finally we out if there only to find our little convertible was smothered by large vehicles it was a nightmare getting in car and getting it out of the lot
I had tried emailing and calling the restaurant to make our reservation with no success so used Open Table. This restaurant was beautiful! A valet was at the entrance to the parking lot when we arrived and showed us where we could self-park. The exterior is very warm and welcoming right down to the candlelight lanterns and patio area at the entrance. Reservations are a must on a Friday night, possibly every night. The place is popular and was extremely busy. The food was beyond outstanding. Our waiter was extremely courteous, professional and helpful. The garlic cheese bread and marinara dipping sauce were amazing! It was evident the dipping sauce was made from fresh ingredients. My husband had the Spaghetti and Meatballs ala Don Rickles and I had the Chicken Milanese. Huge portions of both! The server was also friendly and courteous. This was our anniversary dinner and where we were seated was a little loud. We had asked for the Bennett Room on our Open Table reservation, but it was not available when we arrived and we weren't willing to wait another 30-60 minutes for an open table. Overall, this was a wonderful experience and we recommend highly.
Waiter was extremely nice, but it took 20 minutes to order our drinks. Our salad came out right away, however, he forgot to order our dinner. After 2-1/2 hours, we got up to walk out and the food finally came. He was very apologetic. Mistakes happen, but I can’t give them a great review. Maybe next time….. oh, it was our 30th anniversary!
Ate there for a second time. Now it’s September, very crowded on a Friday evening although we did have a reservation! There is even someone outside directing the parking 😫. Please fix your parking area!! It’s a nightmare!!
Bar is fun, and comfortable, drinks good!
Again service is marginal, over worked wait staff!! Great busers!
Food is good. Not sure if we will go back soon due to wait staff and staffing issues.,,,
Sea Bass was prenominal! My steak was overcooked/charred. Fruit flies were abundant. Cocktails were excellent. Very expensive!
This was our first experience at Farina's - it was great! Eggplant parm and pasta were delicious. Salted carmel gelato was especially good!
Anniversary which they didn’t acknowledge
Charming, cozy inn with gorgeous newly designed interiors. The sea bass special was the best sea bass I’ve ever had!
Fabulous food excellent service. Calamari to die for. Pork chop amazing. Eggplant spectacular.
The best sea bass I have ever had! Everyone else’s dinners were excellent also.
A fabulous new find! The ambiance, food & signature cocktails are all exquisite. A must try if you’ve never been or another trip to “delicious” if you have.
We really enjoyed our anniversary dinner. The staff was awesome!!!!
Yvonne Farina is a very special host. The service was exceptional. The chicken Milanese and burrata delicious and eggplant parmigiana … outstanding. Also they know how to make an old fashioned. Lovely decor and lots of people but still felt intimate. Unfortunately the crab cake app was not good and the steak frites (I questioned my husbands choice…why would anyone order a French entree at an Italian restaurant) just ok. Will definitely be back.
The wait staff of one was WAY overrun with tables, but that didn't stop us from having a phenomenal meal!
Thank you for choosing to dine with us and for your understanding of the staffing issues currently facing restaurants. We are so pleased you enjoyed your meal and hope you will join us again.
Farina’s Supper Club is just the right spot for a tasty and most enjoyable meal. The menu reads as “old Italian” but the contemporary touches and flavors are on target.
The interior is very nicely appointed and service was very good. We visited on. Busy Saturday night and were seated promptly. The complimentary garlicky bread and red sauce were a tasty treat. We shared some salads and the main courses were flavorful and most enjoyable. The portions were bountiful with enough to take a bit home.
Marcos is the best & took great care of us! Our food was incredible - you all do such a great job! One of our favorite places & such a personable team! Loved it!
Thank you for your kind review. We appreciate your choosing to dine with us. We hope to see you again soon.
Our server was less than attentive. He did not review the daily specials and follow up with additional drinks or check on us after our meal was served. The environment was very noisy as we were seated in an area with two very large groups which one was very obnoxious with loud and offensive language. The lasagna was good but a little dry and could have used additional sauce on the side. The wedge salad was great. I also thought $40.00 dollars was a little expensive for pasta and a salad. I would also have appreciated Italian Bread with Olive Oil with my meal. We will go back again to give it another try, but I'm not sure how many chances we will give it. This is our second time there. We took friends and they hate the whole experience. Not sure how I feel about recommending it.
