    Wonderful location. Very fine food and service. Pricey, but that is probably to be expected for a really nice place like this.

    We had a reservation for dinner and enjoyed a bottle of wine prior. The environment was amazing and employees were helpful and friendly. The appetizer, drinks, and salad were amazing. I was excited about the 24hour braised beef but a little disappointed at the tenderness. The noddles that came with the braised beef were very hard and difficult to eat. However the vegetables that came with it and the sauce were delicious along with the side of brussel sprouts. Overall I would recommend to anyone, just wanted to give some feed back on the braised beef.

    Meals were different pizzas, pasta and burger. They were all very good. The pizza was perfection and I understand the pasta, which was a meat pasta, was excellent. Our waitress was excellent and the atmosphere was quite pleasant.

    Most of the food we ordered was delicious. The only dish we wouldn’t recommend would be the chicken and waffles. Our initial server wasn’t that pleasent but the rest of the staff was extremely nice and helpful. I would have liked more music or live music for brunch but overall the atmosphere was a lot of fun. Would highly recommend this establishment and will definitely return.

    Service was great. Atmosphere was great. Food was ok at best. My chicken was cooked so long you couldn’t cut it with a knife. Took almost 20 minutes to get a new order, they were clearing our table before I even got food. Bar was also slow, our food came out before even our first drinks. Overall, ok. I wouldn’t discourage anyone from trying, but I won’t be returning.

    It was my 4th time here - food is great but service is still very unorganized, lost, unpredictable, and scattered. I think I’m done with dining as the experiences have been disappointing once again. I’ll stick to a glass a wine on the terrace instead.

    Wonderful Farm to Table brunch menu. Were there early Saturday for brunch. Ate outside with view of the rolling hills. Food was excellent. Butternut squash veloute was velvety and perfectly seasoned. Avocado toast was well balanced and flavorful. My husband’s chicken and waffles was wonderful and was a generous portion. Everything on the menu looked so good that it was hard to choose. As a bit of a foodie, I was well pleased!!

    First time to this restaurant. I’d been the Vineyard, but ate outdoors. The restaurant is elegant…the upscale, contemporary farm house decor is pleasing. The lunch menu had a nice variety of offerings, as did the cocktail and wine by the glass list I ordered the steak frite with field greens. The salad was fresh and delicious!. My entire was nicely done, though the steak was prepared a little well done for me, the frites were perfect. I had a glass if French Cha lis. Though I enjoyed my meal, the prices are excessive. I had a mid priced Chablis, and my glass was $19! Frankly, I find that outrageous. Nice place for a special occasion with phenomenal views but I certainly won’t frequent this restaurant often.

    The place was nice. Value wasn't there both in quality and portion size. We had a $54 braised short rib, it literally was probably 1 rib, and after the pitch of how juicy and delicious it was... it was dry. In a sauce that quickly reminded us of powered brown gravy. The burger was delicious. If you go, I'd recommend trying a burger or pizza, save yourself the money and enjoy the atmosphere which was nice.

    Love this place. Peter was our server and he was great as always. 2 suggestions: 1) it would be nice if they offered 2 differt steaks or at least 2 sizes. Not many women eat 20 oz. steaks and we were with older guests that don't eat that large of quantity either...just a suggestion. The steaks were cooked perfect with great flavor just to big! 2) the Caesar salad is my favorit thing there...but they have changed it! With the smaller romaine lettuces, they don't grill as well, therefore the salad didn't not have the smoky grilled flavor through out. Again just a suggestion. We will always go back!

    Our experience started off really nice. Our waitress was very friendly and bubbly and patient with us — we got carried away chatting a few times and forgot to look at the menu. Our drinks and entrees were great. We got the fish of the day and the burger. The polenta sounded like it was going to be delicious but it had a bit of sweetness to it that we thought was odd. Definitely had better. The corn crème brulee was also interesting. It was listed as a side so we thought it was going to be more savory, but it was just like the dessert just with bits of corn in it. We didn’t love it. By the end of our meal our waitress was nowhere to be found (passed by our table numerous times but never stopped to check on us). When she finally stopped at our table after about 20 minutes of watching her avoid us, her attitude had completely changed and she seemed annoyed and borderline unpleasant. Our dirty plates were never fully cleared from the table. We were there for my fiancé’s birthday and were told he could pick a free dessert from the case up front. It never came. We got tired of waiting so we got up to leave happened to notice they were finally preparing it so we just asked for it to go. He got the peach tart and it had no taste except for the peaches. I also ordered a cake to be delivered to our room. The cake was beautiful, but it had no taste either. For $65 I was very, very disappointed. We stayed in the Boticelli suite which was very nice for the most party. The only issue was the fireplace in the living room looked like it was in the process of being repaired. Someone had left parts to it sitting on the mantle. Overall we had a good time and would stay there again, but the food and service definitely left something to be desired. We’re foodies so we don’t mind paying more for a good meal, but for that price the quality of the food and the service has to be on point. It came pretty close, but missed the mark for us.

    I love Farmers Common. The atmosphere and service are usually great. Almost every time I've gone, something on the menu that I've asked for has been unavailable even if we go early or when it's not busy. Last time I went, we ordered the chicken and waffle for brunch, and the chicken was so dry we didn't finish it which was disappointing because it was $30. Usually, the food is very good.

    We had an incredible experience on a cold day in January. While it was cold outside, the atmosphere and staff were as warm and welcoming as ever. We did a wine tasting of a flight of reds and a flight of whites. The wine was actually quite nice. We then went to the restaurant for lunch and had a delicious meal. From the server to the bartender to the chef, they were all very friendly and warm. We capped off the day with some delicious cocktails and dessert. We’ll definitely be back!
