    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!

    The have got to get the service dialed in to succeed. I love the food, the space, the concept, but the service is so low quality aside from 1 time I visited (this was my 6th time). There was a hair on my plate, and just a lack of warmth/service in general. I’m so bummed!

    I was looking for a place just outside of Austin and found Farmers Commons. The ambience and food were fantastic. The servers were courteous and knew the menu and food preparation well. The vibe of the place is just perfect for a weekend brunch. After finishing our food, we walked around the restaurant, clicked some pictures and played life sized chess. A very well constructed place and a hidden gem!

    This was our first visit to Farmers Commons. The location is really beautiful and the wines were decent. We will come back for more wine tasting/drinking! We had a reservation for lunch and were seated on time. The service team was great! The food was OK. I had waffles & chicken - the chicken was a flattened breast (more like a cutle) and it was very dry. The waffles were good. This dish requires a nice juicy chicken breast to be great. My husband had a burger - it was cooked to order and he said it was good but not outstanding. The candied bacon was awesome. Biscuits were good - but not the light, fluffy kind. We didn't have dessert, but there were some beautiful items in the case. It's a bit of a drive for us, but a nice place to go and enjoy wine in a scenic location. There are some other things on the menu we would like to try, so will probably try again.

    It was a cold day and the hostess wanted to sit us by the front door. When I asked to sit away from the cold draft of the door, she had an attitude and told us that if she sat us somewhere else that we’d have to leave within an hour. Rude and very unaccommodating. We paid almost $100 for our meal with 4 people that day.

    Some of the food options are quite good and others are a miss. Menu isn’t huge so they should be better. Service isn’t great. Friendly, but they don’t know the menu or wine list well enough. Wine service overall needs to improve - know the list, open the bottle correctly, let me taste it (don’t just pour me a full glass), chiller if needed, etc. I’ll keep coming back. I like the space and it makes for a fun outing. It’s good but could be great.

    Have eaten there twice and it was wonderful both times. Every course is amazing (appetizer, main course, and dessert). My husband had the fish of the day last night and said it was the best fish he'd had in his entire life, which is saying a lot.

    Pretty setting and fairly busy. Waiter was alright, though less than attentive. Maybe coffee refills aren’t offered? The table was up against a wall which made it very hard to serve and at the price point of the food I’d hope the server wouldn’t pass the food over or ask us to move finished plates towards her. Food was tasty, though very expensive. The florentine was lacking in spinach but was swimming in the mornay sauce and onions. Definitely a splurge.
