Farmhouse - Chicago Ratings and Reviews
Really good food. I have never been a fan of cheese curds but the appetizer ended up bring maybe my favorite part of the meal! Solid burger, good concept with locally sourced ingredients and comfort food. Wish I had room to eat more in one sitting! Solid service as well.
Wonderful Restaurant Week menu and experience. The salad was well balanced with a variety of flavors and textures. The mushroom fussily was a hearty bowl of comfort food on a very cold day. I wanted to pick up the bowl and drink the broth, which was reminiscent of an onion soup. I normally skip or take home the dessert, but the right-sized apple crumble with dollop of ice cream was just the right finishing touch.
Even during restaurant week! Solid, scrumptious and attentive.
On a date, cozy, a bit loud on the second floor seated inches from the party going on next to us. But, hey, it is not a suburban steak house, now is it?
Nice vegetarian options, strong beer selections (Contorter Porter!) and perfectly done roasted chicken.
A nice flow to the people and the staff.
(Okay, one minor beef. Did you really completely block up the front staircase by placing a group all around it and send us to leave via the back stairs? My late fire marshal uncle is rolling over...)
We went for Restaurant Week and, as two people, could order everything on the RW menu except the fusilli. The salad and cheese curds were both perfect, but the curds did not need the ketchup. They could have stood without any sauce, but the ranch went very nicely with them too.
The “half chicken” may have been called that because that’s what it’s called on the regular menu, but what we received was an airline breast. That is slightly more than 1/8 of a chicken, nowhere near a half. Still well-seasoned, with very smooth potato purée and root veg that complemented the dish well. The Mac and cheese part of the short rib Mac and cheese was delightful, and the added bacon and veg may be offensive to Mac and cheese purists but were a pleasant addition. Unfortunately the short rib laid over it was disappointing in its absence of flavor.
Loved both desserts, two days later I am still thinking about the bread pudding.
Service was friendly and pleasant, music was a lovely 80s playlist that made me forget I wasn't listening to my own Pandora.
I love Farmhouse and the food is always fantastic. We did the restaurant week dinner and it was well worth the price and quite good. Loved the beef short rib Mac & Cheese and Chicken. Cocktails fabulous. We also ordered another side of the cheese curds. My only suggestion is to improve the desserts... I find they are always too savory. I do find the music they play just awful and it kind of ruined our somewhat romantic evening. I wish they would play jazz, or something cool instead of Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson. It's not very romantic to eat dinner while listening to Thriller. They could do a MUCH better job setting the mood at this place.
Delicious menu options for the Chicago Restaurant Weeks tasting menu. I went with my sister and shared all the food so was able to sample even more variety. The cocktail list was very interesting. Reading about the mission of the restaurant made me enjoy the experience even more!
Fantastic food and a great atmosphere! It is Chicago Restaurant Week so they offered a fabulous three course prix fix brunch for $22. I highly recommend the biscuits and gravy with pork ribs. Also one of the best Bloody Marys I have ever had. Service was good but the kitchen was a little slow-give yourself time for a leisurely brunch.
This quaint restaurant has a superhero in the kitchen. A superhero with the power to disguise and elevate comfort food into gourmet meals that balance portion, flavor and elegance. Who does that? On my husband's plate was a subtle puree of squash and Malagueta Pepper (at least that's what I think the server said) and that was only the garnish. It was amazing !!!
We were at Farm House for Restaurant Week and really enjoyed all aspects of our meal. Austin was our server and he was great...professional, friendly and really took pride in his work. Also had drinks at the bar afterwards and the bartender was awesome. Would recommend and will definitely go back!
We had been to the Farmhouse in Evanston and really enjoyed it. We were looking forward to visiting this location and were equally impressed. Yes, it's crowded, cramped and loud -- but just SO GOOD! Cheese curds, short rib mac and cheese, duck schnitzel, whitefish, bread pudding --- everything was delicious! Server was wonderful. We loved it!
Chicken soup, mac & cheese, biscuit were excellent! Cheese curds arrived cold so weren't as good as they probably should have been. Food was very slow to come out. Waiter was not friendly, spoke the bare minimum, and did not even say "thank you" at the end of the meal while dropping off the check. I had to ask for coffee refills. Hostess sat us at table with blazing sun shining on it. We asked for another table further inside the restaurant and was told it was reserved for a four top and we were a party of two. Thirty minutes later the hostess sat a party of two at that same empty four top! Wish the service matched the quality of the food.
We were seated upstairs where there isn’t the fun ambience of below. The waiter had no help; service was terrible. Did not get refills on iced tea- too busy. Table next to us wasnt cleared for awhile. No high top available although open table let us request one. Food ok, nothing great. Not impressed
We really enjoyed our brunch at Farmhouse! The food and coffee were both very tasty. The root vegetable hash could have been bland, but instead was spicy and full of flavor.
The only thing I would change is where we sat! We were right next to a window with the sun shining directly through and I felt like an ant under a magnifying glass for our entire meal.
Went here with a friend for a quick brunch, 11AM on a Saturday. We had a reservation so no wait to get seated. It definitely got more crowded as we left (around 12:15PM). The food was delicious, but a little cold. Not sure if that was how it was supposed to be served but I was so hungry it didn't bother me too much!
Love this place! My second time here and although I loved what I had the first time (beef short rib mac and cheese) I wanted to try something else. Our waiter suggested the pork chop and boy was he spot on. It was delicious and huge. The other people in our group both ordered the duck schnitzel and they too were blown away, it was that good. Definitely going back to try other tasty dishes.
I've been to Farmhouse a few times, both in Chicago and in Evanston, and its always a great meal! Their menu is diverse with good options for all, including my vegetarian sister and my meat loving boyfriend. Prices are similar to other restaurants in the area but I feel less bad about spending the money sine they use farm fresh ingredients and but a lot of care into their dishes. Definitely try the cheese curds!
