I really wanted to like this place.Service is good. Restaurant was beautiful but we were celebrating my mom’s birthday and they gave her a completely different dish than what she ordered. Poor birthday girl ate her dinner because they had to make another plate, when everyone else was done eating. They comped dessert but I didn’t think that made up for it. Food entrees are bland and mediocre. Drinks and appetizers are just ok.
The mussels are delicious and probably the only thing worth ordering.

Love coming here. We were sat in the gazebo area, which is very cute. Drinks and food always on point. Our only issue is that we weren’t offered fresh pepper for our salads and when we asked for Parmesan cheese; it never came. I would still come back.

The shared plates are delicious, filling and good value. The wine list is solid with a very reasonable mark up. One of the view restaurants with every seat out door, though most are safely covered by a roof/awning but all are open air. Great for special occasions, but also pleasantly casual. One of my favorite places in OC!

The Farmhouse is very special and I love eating there. But (isn't there always a but) the noise level is not what I would describe as Energetic as in your review choices...it is intolerable. The saddest thing is that people are shouting at each other to be heard above the tables around them. There does not appear to be a quite area anywhere. The only reason I can think of for continuing this is so you can create faster table turnover.

They could not sit us at a larger table than for two people even though there were tables available for four. They could not sit us in the patio under the heat lamps because they might get full of customer (which was not the case by the time we left). We had to decide if we wanted the roasted chicken asap because they only had 15 left (dinner started st 5pm and we were sat at 5pm with reservations). They ran out of créme for coffee or tea upon our first cup before ordering and brought milk instead without saying anything until we asked about it. The chicken was tough. That’s a lot of negatives for just starting out the dinner night and trying the restaurant for the first time. A terrible first impression.

Totally over rated. Had brunch and the menu was very limited. Food was average - not terrible but not great either; basic burger, salad, french toast. Nice wait staff but pushy in trying to upsell you on everything. The portions were very small as the waitress said but still brought home left overs - not because I was full but I had enough; not bad food but nothing special and didn't really want to eat more than half a burger. There is complimentary valet but prepare to wait 20 minutes in line to get to the valet. Finally, the prices were high even by Newport Beach standards. Definitely will not be going back.

A fabulous restaurant. It is a lot bigger than Sage, but still manages to retain Sage's ambiance. The setting within Roger's Gardens is wonderful. We sat next to a low wall containing gorgeous looking lamb's ear and the most fragrant young rosemary eating under the night sky. Our waiter Greg was his usual outstanding self. Always ready, but never hovering. His knowledge of the menu was terrific and his advice on spot. Ian, the sommelier, was also terrific in his recommendations. A real gem.

We came to celebrate a birthday. Great atmosphere, however the service and food was terrible. Even though we let them know weeks in advance that we were celebrating a birthday they did nothing special (like they said they would) and yet the table next to us got the whole birthday treatment. We ordered 3 different proteins: chicken, ribeye, pork. They were all under done. The ribeye was the most underdone at borderline raw (not even close to rare - we ordered medium) and sent it back. The service continued to lag even though they were not close to capacity. We were given no chance for drink re-order, we got two dessert menus within 10min of each other, thank God we ordered apps because it was 40min between apps being delivered and food arriving.

You can make a day of it at this nursery! This is Amstrong's on steroids, and with a restaurant, no less! We went specifically the enjoy all the beautiful Halloween and Christmas decorations, in addition to the beautiful and creative plants and flower arrangements. How nice it was to also enjoy a delicious, upscale farm-to-table lunch in such a comfortable and relaxing setting. Our server, Kathleen, was very helpful in making our selections. We'll be back!

It’s one of our favorite places for “lunch with the girls” and always has so many choices on the menu for a snack or a meal. The food is always fabulously delicious, beautiful, and the portions are ample. Special occasions or just a day of shopping and talking are good excuses for visiting The Farmhouse, and reservations make it so easy to spend time in the gardens and galleries! The staff are friendly, efficient, and helpful.
