Short ribs came highly recommended but had a large amount of fat - spouse had the pork chop which she said was tough. Camilo desert was very good.
Wait person was fantastic - very friendly and helpful

I will have to give FT-Little Italy another chance. The first time I dined there, the pork chop were excellent. This second time, the pork chop was dry and tasteless. Maybe the cook was having a bad day. Service was exceptional and the ambiance is great - I love the decor.

They were able to get our table right away. The place was packed but service was still fast. Food was awesome! Drinks are great! Perfect location for a date night.

Unfortunately we didn’t have that great of an experience, they messed up our order and our waiter would only come around every 30 minutes so I was hard to get a drink or even notify him about the order being incorrect.

So many good things. Location is outstanding, right on the new Piazza. Tons of seating, and we had no trouble finding patio seating for two on a Thursday night 7pm. Hostess and wait staff were super friendly, and our food came very quickly. We had the Farmer's salad, Roasted Chicken flatbread, and Artichoke Ravioli, and all three were great. Very reasonable prices, too - especially considering some of the more expensive alternatives.

They would do well to install some acoustic tiles in the region above the exposed ducts, as the space was so noisy it made conversation all but impossible with anyone who was not sitting to one's immediate side; even the person across the two-person table had trouble hearing me, and I'm not a quiet speaker!

Had diner at Farmer's Table in Little Italy on a Saturday night. The food was wonderful, but perhaps a little over priced. The picture on open table of the place makes it seem small and intimate, which it was anything but. The tables were crammed together, the noise level was very high and the restaurant is actually very large. Beyond the cramped dining space, Farmer's Table did to me what I think is very tacky. I ordered a bottle of wine, vintage 2014 and when they brought me the bottle, it was a 2016. I pointed this out and asked the server if the price would be reduced since this was a younger version of the same wine. I got a blank stare, then a laugh. If a restaurant want's to be considered high quality, they need to understand wine as well as food. This situation with the wine happens all to often, and restaurants need to understand it is not okay, it is bate and switch.

Great food, cool setting. We had a dish that seemed to have been misplaced which resulted in a longer wait than I would have liked. The staff handled it quickly once we made them aware, I think they are hustling to keep up with lunch rush in Little Italy.

Such a cute spot but the service could use a step up! Took a long time to get someone to our table to order, we would have ordered more appetizers and drinks with our entrees had there been some more attention between food being served. This was our second time here and had same experience the first time. The food was great, the location is great, and the ambiance is awesome!

Really had a fantastic time at the restaurant. Jenny, our waitress who Iris affectionately referred to as Jenny from the block, was flawless in her delivery and presentation. The food was fantastic. The support staff and busboys we're phenomenal. The front of the house could use a little polish, the ladies seemed very overwhelmed which is the last thing you need in a hostess. Overall,

I booked a table for 4, and i guess what we got was a 4 top but it was WAYYYY too crowded. I am guessing from your menu offerings that a lots of parties do "family style"/ share plates. We should have had a table twice as big and all we had was water and wine, and 5 total dishes.

The food was also all delivered at the same time, parmesan came 15 mins later, sugar (for coffee) never came and we had to ask for bread 2x. So overall, the food was delish, but some service issues to work through. and bigger tables! Or maybe risers for pizza, or smaller serving plates....lots of options to make it work :)

This was a very disappointing experience for several reasons
• our reservation was for 8:15 for indoor seating. We weren’t seated until 8:45 outside. It was 50 degrees and windy and they did not have enough heaters so we were freezing
• our server was nice enough but he was rushed and paid us very little attention
• it took an hour to get out food and everything came out and once including the appetizers and entrees. The only
Thing that didn’t come out at the same time was the salad we order but that’s because it never made it to the table
And our server had no idea. When I pointed it out that we never got it (even though they charged us for it) they were unapologetic
• once the meal was over our server was no where to be found. Come to find out he was cut and we sat outside in the cold with dirty dishes for another 30 minutes before we had to track someone down and ask for our check
• the only positive was that the food we did receive was very good.

Overall, this was a very disappointing experience and I won’t return nor will I recommend

I made a reservation 2 months prior online and called to confirm - twice. It was for my birthday. When I got to the restaurant, my reservation had somehow been lost. The hostess sat us 30 minutes later but at a makeshift table outside right before it started raining. The servers actually still tried to bring us our food while it was pouring raining and we were huddled under the awning! We were finally re-seated inside the restaurant, but it wasn't clear who our server was. We clearly were not cared about - even though we were a group of 9 people ordering multiple drinks and food...You would have thought we would have received better service for a mistake the restaurant made, but no one came over to apologize or to try to make this experience better for us. Definitely not a good experience for my birthday dinner, and I am not happy that I chose this restaurant out of all the others in the area. I would never recommend this location - especially out of all the amazing places to eat in Little Italy.

We waited a little while despite having a reservation but that’s to be expected in Little Italy on a Friday night. What was more disappointing was the 20 minutes it took to have our server visit our table, how incredibly loud the room was (side room with the creepy denim pocket wall) and how our server didn’t just write down our order resulting in two return trips to verify what we wanted.

Lackluster, hoping they continue to work out the kinks. We stood at the door waiting for 5 min while the hostess was on the phone...zero acknowledgement of our anniversary which was in the reservation, not even a happy anniversary. Pizza was really tasty!

Ambiance and location are really fun. Service was great. Food was fine but nothing to write home about. Duck ragu gnocchi was kind of meh, pork belly app was good but I’ve had better, bouillabaisse was fine but not great. I regret not trying the pizza.

We had a dinner reservation but they still said it would be a 30 minute wait, which is unacceptable. We ended up sitting outside because we didn't want to wait and it was freezing even with the heater. The pizza and ravioli were excellent. The only problem I had with the food was the caesar salad was not chopped but the dressing was good. The bread pudding brought out for my friends birthday was delish.

After all the hype my husband I went to try it out. I ordered the special with was a bison steak with corn something and truffle. There were no truffles on it at all, steak was ok. My husband had a pasta dish and the pasta was Very Al Dente. Its super loud inside, just felt super cramped and crazy inside.

The only negative was that I had selected an indoor table at time of reservation, and it wasn’t available when we arrived - and so were offered an outdoor table or an additional wait for the aforementioned indoor table. This was a minor gripe overall because the food was amazing and the service was exceptional. We will be returning again but hopefully will get an indoor or outdoor table as requested at the time of reservation :)

Very good service with a cool atmosphere. The windows were closed which caused a loud dining experience. I had the bison and found it delicious. As expected our drinks were more expensive than they should be but location and environment can dictate that. Our servers were super kind and gave they right amount of attention to the table. If I could improve anything i found some of the dishes I tasted to be a little underwhelming. My guests had a pork chop and it wasn’t up to my par, but everything was good but could be great.

What a nice Friday I had for a business lunch with a doctor and his wife from PA sitting out on the patio. Servers were friendly and the food especially the spinach salad with swordfish was fantastic! The doctor and his wife split a flatbread and we all shared a fruit plate.

The restaurant is very cute and the service was great. We started with the charred octopus and stuffed squash blossoms. Both were very good. We then had the short rib pizza and that was amazing. Next course we shared the artichoke ravioli, this was good but I wouldn’t order it again. Last we had the ribeye and I’ll say it was the one thing we didn’t really care for. We asked for it to be sliced because we were sharing and whoever cut it did a really wacky job on it. The sauce was a little much as well. With that said we will definitely be back to try other things on the menu as we only live a block away.

Great ambiance, good food, and friendly staff. Uses the farm to table concept, however, I thought it was odd the "fish of the day" was swordfish from NY. Besides that, food was tasty and staff was attentive. Will be returning again.
