We thought Farmstead was interesting in a good way. It’s in an old barn and quite busy with live music. Had burgers
Parking is very tight and hard to navigate. Nice staff and they accommodated a late change in our reservation but food was not that fantastic, sort of of “charcoal grille with lighter fluid not burnt off yet” taste.

Loved how they recognized our anniversary with complimentary champagne and offered to take a photo for us. It’s special when a busy establishment still takes the effort to make you feel special. Service was great! Would love to have next group gathering here.

The barn like atmosphere is wonderful. The service was great. The trout, Mac & cheese and tempera green beans were a 10. Let’s not forget the deserts. Beignets with carmel dipping sauce and a chocolate pie to die for. The $5 corkage and the waiters all seemed to be happy to be working there. Beautiful atmosphere when the sun went down. Can’t wait to eat there again.

Went here to kick off my friend’s bachelorette weekend. It was the perfect place. Excellent food - it tied with our friends for a Michelin rated place - wonderful atmosphere and fantastic service. The best of Napa quality food and drink, with zero pretension. Highly recommend.

We started with apps of meatballs, grilled artichoke and steak tartar. All excellent. Several of our party ordered ribs and they were delicious. Brick grilled chicken also terrific. Wait staff could have been a little more attentive. Seating outside was terrific, private and quiet under the arbor surrounded by veggie gardens. (Inside was noisy and smelled strong of bbq).

Our waitress was less than attentive. I had to ask what the specials were, and then her reply was, “Oh we’re all out of those, we’ve been serving since 4’o’clock.” We were seated at 8pm. Isn’t that still the dinner hour? And why so snarky? Our food took forever to come out of the kitchen and then came all at once. Again, our server was rude and said, “yeah, I don’t know what’s going on in there tonight.” Wow. The food was very average.

Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch delivered on its mission to offer locally-sourced, delicious comfort food. All of our dishes were well prepared. We had the delicious deviled-egg appetizer, heirloom tomato and burrata salad, BBQ ribs, savory trout, risotto and LMR sourced hamburger. The restaurant was very busy even at 8:30 on a Saturday night, but our service was very prompt. It is little difficult to hear other diners, however, when the restaurant is full. The pricing is a little higher than the usual restaurant offering traditional comfort food, but worth it for the excellent quality of the ingredients and superb presentation.

Bad experience. Thankfully we started out with the cheddar biscuits, the clear winner of the meal and probably the sole reason this place is rated so high. My girlfriend got the burger and she said it was cold and didn’t have much flavor. I got the St. Louis ribs, I should have known better. Can’t get good ribs in a non-bbq establishment. Decent flavor but almost every bite I took I was chewing through tendons and had to constantly pick them out of my mouth and after the 2nd one I just stopped. Just a poor effort all around here. Maybe i would return if I received a free meal. Only reason to spend any money here is for the cheddar biscuits.

This place is overrated. It’s too crowded and scene-y therefore the food quality suffers. The chicken we ordered was clearly sitting under a heat lamp for a while— it was dry and rubbery. Our waiter was great but food did not seem like farm ingredients to me.

Everything about this place is cool, from the farmhouse vibe to the smoke from the wood oven lingering all through the dining room. This was not what I was expecting to experience in the Napa Valley, way more laid back, jeans, and boots than I thought ... But that's my speed, so I loved it. My wife got the pork chop and I got the trout, I would get both again. The pork chop was massive, sitting atop perfectly cooked jalapeno grits. The trout was delicate and flaky, just superb!

Despite a reservation, had to wait almost 25 minutes while they "cleared the table". Service was very slow but when we asked to move to another table out of the sun (we had waited so long for our server to bring the wine the sun had moved to where we were!), they were very gracious and helpful, even providing a free dessert for our trouble. The food was excellent and the back patio was nice. Would recommend highly if you are happy to linger.

The restaurant serves barbecue. We found the restaurant to be smokey to the point our eyes hurt after the evening and we went home smelling of smoke. While the food was organic, it was relatively tasteless. The service was very good. Overall a bit of disappointment given the high ratings we saw on line.

My wife and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary. We walked from our hotel, the Vintage Country Inn, and were seated immediately. Except for a person at the table next to us who spoke with a very loud voice, the ambience was pleasant. We shared the dishes, salad and meatballs to start that were outstanding. The smell of the smoker convinced us to choose the St Louis ribs, a full rack, was fall-off-the-bone tender with a delicious dry rub. Good enough taste that did not even need the sauce on the side. We would definitely go back to explore the menu more.

Very lovely setting - inside and outside. This was the second time we went there. Service was excellent. Perhaps a bit too much attention - we were asked, "How is the food?" by many different people multiple times. Like the first time, the food disappointed. I ordered the pull pork sandwich and potato salad. The sandwich was not warm enough for me, and the pork tasted very bland. BBQ sauce was provided - it wasn't anything special - but the pork should have its own flavor. The potato salad was too creamy and hard for my taste.

We had a very good lunch at Farmstead last week. We tried several apps with the figs stuffed with blue cheese and the Shishito peppers being especially tasty - a flavorful beginning. Everyone tried something different - pulled pork, salad, chicken and sole. All were nicely prepared with my pork being a tad dry needing a little extra BBQ sauce. Service was attentive, in fact, numerous people stopped by to check on us to make sure we liked our meals. The wine list is Napa centric as you would expect and is marked up a bit aggressively. Atmosphere at Farmstead is always welcoming and usually festive - a place that's fun to visit.

I would return and will return and I always recommend it to friends.

Food has improved so much since opening it is incredible. Gnochis, trout are the best. Cheese biscuits are a must with everything. Our waitress this time was the best we have ever had, if you can look up who she was. Was the most attentive, smart, never forgot anything--she was a true delight.
