    We have been a few times. Each visit things get worse. A common problem is the service. Whereas every server is friendly, as a restaurant they just don't have their act together. Early this month there were two to 3 waiters standing by the kitchen but I had to get up 4x to ask for help including ask for the bill. I finally asked why and was told they were on break and 1 was taking care of everyone. Really, really poor management. This last time, very nice server, but slow. They had live music, it was good but it's a small room and it was way too loud. They were very accommodating and allowed us to move to a further away table. I appreciated that. Ordered a cappuccino, came out in clear mug. The cup was not quite half full. Absurd. Biscuits too salty to eat (they took off the bill, offered to make new but.. the baking soda salt taste ruined the craving). Waffles unpleasant flavor (even loads of syrup didn't help) chicken dry. We drive out from leander...nearly 50 min drive. We both agreed it may be a bit before we try again.

    Excellent. There was an excellent sax player doing his thing. That’s the coolest thing I’ve heard on a brunch. Only experience with jazz music has been in smoky, dark venues. The salad and the dressing was so good! I can’t wait to get back.

    A hidden gem for sure. Besides having to wait about 10 minutes when reservations were made, zero complaints. Ambiance was great. Food was great. Drinks were great. Will for sure be going back.

    Farmers CommonsResponded on January 25, 2023We are definitely tucked away, but we try to make up for that with our offerings and service. I do apologize for the wait that you had to endure. Our guests tend to get a little comfy after filling their bellies. We will try to avoid this issue at your next visit. We're looking forward to seeing you again!

    We enjoyed the ambiance . Staff was very attentive. Also liked the fact the restaurant is a cozy size. The architecture and decor is clean and interesting, with classic styles from Italy to eclectic pieces on wall. Food was prompt and staff very courteous and friendly. We may have to make it a regular destination, if available in our schedules. Great experience.

    Farmers CommonsResponded on January 25, 2023Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate the fact that you are keen on all aspects of the experience and were therefore able to take in all of the details of our establishment. We are also proud that our team treated you well. We would love to host you any time you can stop by.

    This was our first time to experience this restaurant. We were a little apprehensive as the Google reviews appeared to be somewhat hit or miss (particularly the service). We were more than presently surprised by the excellent service, ambiance of the room, and quality of the food served. We’ll definitely be back! Our server (Josh) was informative, friendly, and attentive to our service needs. We plan on returning for the weekend brunch sometime soon.

    Farmers CommonsResponded on January 25, 2023We appreciate you for giving us a chance. We do try to provide a topnotch experience for all of our guests although mishaps do happen every now and then. We are happy that our wonderful team member Josh was able to make your visit all the more better. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

    Hamburger was over cooked on half the patty and undercooked on the other half. It was served lukewarm. The French Onion soup was served with a slab of pita bread (not crusty country bread) over the bowl that was soggy and doughy. The cheese was one big clump and the soup tasted like canned soup. Very disappointing.

    Farmers CommonsResponded on January 25, 2023Good afternoon. I sincerely apologize for the disappointing meal that you received during your visit. Your grievances have been shared with our Head Chef and will be addressed with our team. We are working hard to rectify these issues. We hope that you will give us another try so that we can provide you with a better experience overall. Thank you.

    A very nice location off the beaten path. It offers a great daytime view and experience with its connection to the vineyard. The restaurant is not too small, but quaint. The service is not above and beyond, but not lacking either. The ambiance is casual and the vibe a bit trendy. The menu is small, but full of variety and the food is very, very good. The prices are a bit high in my opinion, but they are in line with what I've come to expect of the areas north of Austin.

    Farmers CommonsResponded on January 25, 2023Thank you for your review. Since we are off the beaten path, we try to make sure that the visit is worth the journey. We are pleased that you enjoyed the food and ambiance overall. We look forward to seeing you again!

    Limited selections but would assume that means refined process and consistent execution. Food was prepared quickly, but it lacked salt so a bit lack-luster. Do not order the steak as they were unable to master the cook, twice. Pricey for the options and portion size. Seats were comfy and atmosphere was pleasant.

    Farmers CommonsResponded on January 25, 2023We do apologize for the issues that you endured with the food. Your review has been shared with the team and we working on preventing these issues. The steak is one of our more popular items that guests tend to enjoy, so it is disappointing that it was not served to your liking. We will hone in on ways to make it better. Thank you for your review and we hope that you'll give us another try.

    After having had a few dinners here before that were okay, we decided to do the pre set dinner for NYE. We had a group of 5, and unfortunately the consensus was all the same - the dinner was horrible. All dishes came out Luke warm. The lobster bisque was the worst we’d all tasted before. The fish was cold. The beef Wellington was cold and not consistent. Everyone’s was cooked differently, some overcooked, some almost raw. They gave French 75 cocktails as part of the meal, but it was the worst French 75 we’d had. The bartender was nice enough to make a single one for me after confirming the original was a large batch made and agreed it was no good. The dessert was the only dished liked, and as far as the other cocktails ordered throughout the night - those were good as well. We love the ambiance of this restaurant and location but were extremely disappointed with the quality of the NYE dinner, especially after spending what we did for this reservation. It was not worth the money.

    Farmers CommonsResponded on January 5, 2023Hello.Your group was a joy.You all were kind and brought great energy to the event.On behalf of Farmer's Commons, please accept my apology for your less than enjoyable dining experience at our New Year's Eve dinner.We were made aware of only one of the dishes that came out warm which was the sea bass.It is regretful that the French 75 did not live up to your expectations.The team is working hard to do better.We appreciate your review and hope that you'll give us another try. Thank you!

    Food was good, steaks came out cold on a cold cast iron skillet and they warmed it up a little bit, burger was good but also a little bit cool. Out of port and biscuits when we tried to order. Bacon was amazing. Apples in the crisp came out undercooked but honestly overall it was fine. Service was good.

    This was our second visit and the food was disappointing. It was my birthday and my husband is celiac. Both were noted in the reservation and there was no acknowledgement of either. Salmon was floral in flavor. Pizza was over cooked and salad, soup and main course all arrived at the same time. This is my second time to review and still no one has reached out. Not worth the money.

    We’ve visited previously and had a fantastic experience. This visit was very disappointing and inconsistent. We started with the Brie and fried green tomatoes-both were wonderful. For entrees, the butcher’s cut was wonderful, but the other two entrees were cooked incorrectly. The first halibut (special) was cold in the middle & completely raw. When it was remade, there was no seasoning. The filet au poivre I ordered rare-medium rare came out medium well-well done. It was so far off I didn’t want to gamble trying again, so I switched to the chicken option, which was great. We ordered the mac & cheese and the broccolini. The mac&cheese was actually better this visit than our first experience, but the broccolini was completely raw and tasted like it hadn’t been washed because every bite we tried to eat was gritty? The service we experienced our first visit was phenomenal-personable and friendly, but still very attentive and well-timed. Our server was lovely, but stretched way too thin this visit and the support staff was very poor. We had to ask for more water several times and our plates were not pre-bused between courses. We didn’t have silverware for the first set of entrees. We love going out to nice dinners-and appreciate many mid-fine dining experiences. The kitchen execution and service experience this time didn’t match the quality expected with the associated menu price points.

    I love this place. My husband has been playing music at the vineyard for several years now, and so I've visited many times. But since the remodel and redesign, of my goodness, it's more beautiful than ever. The restaurant is the most significant. It's stunning. The food is amazing and the service is outstanding. The new aesthetic is absolutely perfect. I can't wait to visit again.

    Third time trying this place, hoping it would improve. The food is very good. The service is only bad because they don’t seem to know what they are doing. They try but just don’t seem to get it. Despite being in a winery., the wine selection is very limited. The food menu is also limited, but good except for everything being ala carte and expensive. They were out of some things, which made it hard for four people to get complete meals. No plans to go a fourth time.
