    We go on a regular basis but we made a reservation because had a party of 9 and the food and service was not up to the normal quality. Possibly because the gratitude was automatically added due to party size. Not happy with today's dinner.

    Farmer’s Table seemed to be very short staffed yesterday. We were waiting for over 30 mins for our order to be taken and the table next to us had been waiting even longer. Such a shame.

    With a reservation, we were seated in the bar. Our "waitperson" was the bartender, who rendered good service from an extremely slow kitchen. The food was average in flavor and presentation and expensive as well.

    I made a reservation with open table so that we could have a table ready for a special occasion. Apparently Farmer's Table staff did not review the request. When we arrived I stated that we had a reservation, however, the hostess was unaware. She said that we have this table,and pointed to a table at the end of patio. I asked if there was an inside table, but she said that she wasn't sure. My request was " please select a special table to celebrate our son-in-laws birthday". One entree was delivered prior to finishing a salad. No where to put the entree. Overall it was a nice experience

    First impression was pretty bad. Althought I specifically reserved outdoor seating with an additional note to say "outdoor seating," the hostess apprently didn't pay attention to reservations and she didn't have any table available. She just tried to seat us inside. After telling her about the reservation, she told us that it will take 15 - 20 minutes. I asked about bar seats and she didn't even bother to check if there are anyone leaving. While she was scrumbling to get a table, a groupt at the bar left so we were able to sit outside without the hostess helping. If she bothered enought it would have been apparent that there was a grou that was leaving. The bartender was super nice and the food was great. I wish the hostess actually paid attention to the existing reservations and make sure that those with one get the right type of table.

    I ordered the Cioppino and one of the claims was just caked in with mud, which made me not want to finish the dish. When I brought it to their attention, it was like they could careless. We were also eaten alive by mosquitoes, while eating inside the restaurant.

    The food was really tasty and absolutely enjoyed but if it. The waiter was very helpful with selections as well. The bartenders were a little heavy handed with the liquor. But the tiramisu was so good, the best I’ve had in San Diego. It’s a definite must have for dessert.

    Not good.. this was our first time coming here. We got seated and didn’t have a server for 10 minutes. Then she came over and didn’t even say her name and just said let me get you some waters and ran off. Then it was 25 minutes waiting to put our drink order in. We decided to get up and leave. Poor customer service they weren’t even that busy. It was a Monday night. Will try the little Italy location to see if it’s better.

    Bad quality food. I thought things would all be fresh but they aren’t. The fries were barely cooked. The lobster Mac and Cheese wasn’t fresh or hot. The waiter barely checked on us and was so slow worth literally everything.

    Birthday celebration. nothing mentioned, took 20 minutes at the minimum to get our drinks. Food took at least an hour! no one checked to see if everything was ok or if we needed anything. I even mentioned it was a birthday celebration. Food was good but service was very disappointing…..gave us the bill and left not wanting to go back again!

    Mother’s Day. Server, Brad, was super friendly and attentive. Food didn’t take long either, which would have been fine because they were busy. Food was top-notch, as always (my 3rd visit). I’ll definitely be returning, esp. on a holiday.

    We had a lovely booth for our family, but it took the waiter 10 minutes to find us. The food and beverages also took a very long time to come out. My pasta was only warm as if it had been sitting around. We were offered Parmesan cheese and pepper flakes for our pastas and were given little plastic cups of pre-grated cheese and pepper flakes. I would have ordered a second glass of wine had the waiter checked back with us before we were finished with our meal. Overall we agreed it was not a good experience at all and we will probably not return.
