The food and service were wonderful +
it was a great place to celebrate my partner’s birthday.
I have only one recommendation. Our table was poorly lit making it difficult to read the menu and difficult to see the food we were eating.
My daughter took me to this amazing restaurant for my birthday. The restaurant overlooks and is a part of Roger's Gardens. We actually went down early because the gardens had a "Hocus Pocus" display for Halloween which very Harry Potter-inspired! We loved it. We arrived early for our reservation but were able to be seated, no problem. Our first table had some rather loud, depressing ladies next to us and it was no problem for the hostess to change our table. Our server was so friendly (yes you won points by asking if we were sisters!) and prompt. The pace was just right. He allowed us time to enjoy our pre dinner cocktails and checked in just often enough. My daughter and I each ordered the cheeseburger and it was one of the best burgers I've had. Cooked just right and served with house made french fries. We were both stuffed! Thankfully there was just enough room for the birthday dessert which was a creme brulee without the burnt topping and absolutely wonderful. This is one place that I am glad to be a local so I can return again soon!
Food was good, ambiance good. Service was slow and rarely saw our waitress.
Beautiful setting in a luxurious garden. It’s great for a date.
Beautiful ambiance with fabulous vegetarian and vegan options.
We appreciate the Farmhouse accommodating our growing group! Thanks to Crystal!! She was a trooper!
Great ambiance and a creative menu that changes. Fun place to eat and spend time afterwards exploring Roger’s gardens.
My daughter and I visited on Sunday for the Hocus Pocus. We had a great time.
OC local but first time diners at Farmhouse. We were very impressed with menu. Everything we order was awesome! Service was great! We will be back.
Excellent lunch with friend and wait staff were friendly.
Best steak and heirloom tomato salad. Pizza was great as an appetizer for our group. We all enjoyed our selections.
Food was delicious and waitress and service excellent. Loved the Paradise tea. We've been here several times and it never disappoints.
Gorgeous setting, service and offerings. Thank you.
Great dinner, loved the food and the setting!
We truly enjoyed our meal at Farmhouse! Perfect weather, superb, friendly service and fresh seasonal recipes and ingredients. Good wine list and the bartender was shaking up some frosty concoctions. We even loved the sense of humor on the menu. Definitely a great dining option for 2 or a party of 8!
This is my second time having lunch at The Farmhouse. I wasn't impressed the first time, and after this time I will absolutely never return. The food is overspiced and oversalted. Someone in the kitchen is very heavy handed. Also, short ribs were overcooked...they were more like jerky than simmered roast. I ordered a vegetable bowl, and it looked like an assortment of leftover vegetables. All were mushy and overcooked.
Guest check-in with the hostess is very constipated. When we arrived, there were at least 15 parties waiting to be seated. They all had reservations. Service in general is very poor. There are many runners and servers running about, but the staff doesn't see, to know what tables they are assigned to. At least four people asked us if we wanted flat or sparkling water. Then it took 5 minutes to get the water, and our glasses (tiny) were never refilled until requested multiple times. I asked for a refill on the white bean hummus twice, and it never was replaced.
Our server was brusque and not willing to answer questions. We rarely saw her, and she actually chose to ignore us at times.
Whether for lunch or dinner, the Farmhouse is always a great experience.
Lovely place to enjoy exceptional flavors in your food. It is always an enjoyable surprise to see what new additions are on the menu due to the season. I would describe it as delightful, pleasant, and comfortable.
I have never been disappointed.
We tried The Farmhouse for lunch. It was terrific! The salads were unusual and very tasty. We would definitely go back. Would like to try it for dinner.
The burger was overcooked and very dry. If I ever went back, I would order a salad.
Beautiful and amazing food. We would totally go back again!
food was great. waitress was very attentive. We are an older group and when we arrived it was very noisy in the main dining room. Fearing that we would not be able to hear one another, I asked that we be moved to the outside patio. We were quickly accommodated, and had a lovely visit!
I love the seared ahi salad! Add the almond cake and it’s a divine, gluten-free lunch. Last winter, the GF dessert was apple crisp-terrific. All the ingredients are fresh from the garden and delicious.
Excellent food !
I selected this restaurant to meet with two new friends that I just met on a Viking river cruise. They live in Marina del Rey. We were all sharing pictures and memories. The waitress did not try to hurry us out at all, which I appreciated. The food was excellent and my friends liked it very much. It was delightful sitting outside and a good time was had by all!
I have been here many times since it opened and have not been disappointed. the service and food are great.
Excellent restaurant!! My friend and I have eaten there 6 times, and we love it every time. Afterwards we walk around the nursery. A special treat after linch!
We came to walk along Rogers Gardens and have a relaxing lunch. Very crowded and a little noisy but food was excellent. They had a drink on the menu but no longer served it. They need to redo the menu. Definitely recommend.
This was my 2nd trip to Farmhouse and it didn't disappoint. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and it was perfect. The service (waiter "Kerin"?) was excellent and attentive. The food was very tasty (I had the beet salad/smoked salmon appetizer/scallop pasta entre') and my wife had the soup/chicken. Everything was delicious. My wife loved having the blanket to throw over her legs when the sun went down. Super experience and can't wait to go back......
Wonderful Austrian waitress made the occasion even more special
We specifically asked about gluten free options due to our adverse reaction to gluten. The waiter checked and assured us it would not be a problem. Half way through our meal we were told that the meals had gluten in them. We both got sick from our dinner. It was not the way I wanted to end my birthday celebration.
This is my second time of visiting. I made an appointment to treat a friend to an early birthday dinner.
While waiting for the other couple, my husband and I went to the bar to enjoy some libations. Much to our surprise, we were greeted by a bartender we know from the past. Anthony was as expected very hospitable. He immediately explain to us the cocktail menu. He provided us with a friendly, energetic and amazing reception. I requested Mary (server) this time and she did not disappoint. We all had a great time at the table. Birthday girl had an amazing night. Thank you.
Great ambience service and food!
Parking was an issue and service a bit slow but overall it was enjoyable!
Just don’t like their blending of flavors. They are very proud of their food, I just can’t understand why. Ambiance is nice.
We celebrated our friends’ birthdays last evening (9/7) and, again, our server was excellent & so very accommodating. Having a severe garlic allergy, many restaurants cannot serve me. Here, I was able to have mussels for the first time in 20 years b/c the chef made them specifically w/o garlic. We will be back many many times.
The food at Farmhouse was everything I had hoped for. My only complaint, the hostess asked 3x if I had a reservation after I said yes, all 3 times. She came off as rude an condensending. But the waitress was lovely, the food was great and the atmosphere is perfect.
Suprised to score a last minute reservation! Visiting Halloween at Roger's Gardens and decided to have lunch at the FARM HOUSE! The food was the best I have had in a long time!
Cannot wait to return! Beautiful place and food was absolutely delicious!
