the server was lovely but we received our apps for desert , the sweet potato bread , and although good the dish was very hot and I burned my hand ... I was spending time with my family , my daughter who I don't see often enough and did not want to make a scene but he regular bread also came after the meal ! so nothing was taken of f the bill, I would not go back

Food was sub-par (missing items from the order and under cooked) and service was slow with an attitude (when I asked what was included in a dish, they pointed to another table who was finishing up their meal and said “that”).

2nd time here. Was very pleased with my meal and felt quality of ingredients, portion size and, most importantly, tastiness of the dishes were all in sync. We split the octopus appetizer and cauliflower with chick pea crust. Both very good, cauliflower special. And only $10 for a nice portion. I had halibut dinner. Delicious. Ate every last bite. We had an Oregon Pinot noir for $70 that was perfect. All good. Pleasantly surprised.

Delicious food. Very healthy choices available. Love their sweet Potato bread but it’s only on the dinner menu. Service can be a bit slow, but not terrible.

Worst service I’ve had in a while. Took over 30 min before we had a server come by. Main was okay, the halibut had a great sear but could have used more romesco, and was mostly white beans with only scraps of the other garnishes. Overall not nearly an experience worth the price they’re charging. So many better ways to spend your money.

The staff is friendly and the food is delicious. Oddly enough no one in my party ordered a fish dish but we can vouch that the salads and French toast are good choices.

Delicious food - try the avocado toast and brussel sprouts, and I love the half bottles of champagne. Great atmosphere and open air patio too. I'd definitely recommend!

We had the CRISPY CHICKEN COB. You should be renamed the SALTY SALTY CRISPY CHICKEN COBB! If you don't have high blood pressure you'll get it with this dish. When we provided feedback to the waiter he seemed unfazed. I thought he would communicate it to the chef. I even asked if the chicken was brined first. No reaction. No discussion about having another protein added to the salad. We waited 15 minutes for our check to be returned after our credit card was run. I know it was 15 minutes as I looked at the current time and compared it to the time posted on when the charge was run! Clearly the waiter completely forgot to bring us the check. I had to get up and walk over to the waiter to get the check finally.

Maybe. We weren't that impressed by the food or the portions. The bottomless brunch drinks were basic and a good value. No bottomless coffee in sight!
Our service was quite slow which was annoying as there weren't many patrons that day. Overall, I didn't think this place was anything special. It seems to be a place frequented by families as toddlers were allowed to run around the entire place while parents of infants dined on their food.

We came across this place while walking around, saved it in favorites and visited last week without any high expectations. But what a pleasant surprise it was!!!! The interior is nothing posh, but very ambient. Very welcome staff and perfect service! The food was unbelievably good. We are so spoilt with Michelin starred restaurants and we love all of it! The hamachi crudo, tuna, scallops, shishito peppers, octopus salad - bravo, chef! We will definitely keep coming back and I will recommend to all my friends! This is a gem!

We had a rez for 8:00. Walked in on time. Seated right away and service came to our table in a few minutes. The waitress was very pleasant, positive and cool. Our food came in a timely manner and it was delicious. I plan to take another friend there very soon.

Everything was superb. There was extreme attention to detail. We decided to share a few different things, and our waitress created a perfectly coursed meal for us. Everything is fresh and prepared to perfection

The experience I had at Farmer & the Fish was sub par. Typically for restaurants included in restaurant week I expect good food and food service (they’re so special they had to be made more accessible to people for a couple of weeks). Although the restaurant wasn’t full, we waited a long time to place a drink order, place a food order and get the check. As for food, I left hungry because I disliked the food so much. There is no flavor. My appetizer tasted like nothing. I guess that’s why they keep salt and old bay on the table. My ate less than half of my entree because the flavor choices didn’t make sense. And the chocolate lava cake wasn’t a lava cake it was just a chocolate cake. That was the only part of the meal that was okay. I would only ever go back for $1 oysters during happy hour which were pretty good. Otherwise I wouldn’t recommend.

We waited around 30min for a glass of wine and a beer, the restaurant wasn’t busy as only 30% was occupied. No one was coming to ask us how we were or if we wanted to order. We ordered oysters and they gave us less, when I told them they didn’t even apologize but they did bring the missing pieces eventually. Would never go back.

We had shockingly bad service at the Farmer and the Fish. I would never return here. Our waiter seemed totally uninterested in checking on us, giving an update on our entrées (which took a ridiculous amount of time), refilling our water, offering more hot water for the tea I ordered, *nothing*. He seemed to be attentive to other diners. I won't speculate on what the difference in treatment might have been, but it's possible it was racial. We had to ask the bus staff for a status on our entrees and for the check. Just really unpleasant.

Nice but nothing spectacular. Went for brunch. Was pleasant. Good eggs Benedict. My spouse had a lobster roll (kinda pricey at $29), which was good also, but not the best ever. Nice little place

They showed a different restaurant week lunch menu on the website than what we got in person. Total bait and switch.
