Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch Ratings and Reviews
The property and building are both beautiful. We ordered the deviled eggs (which were good) and the beef tartare to start. Both were spicy, but the tartar was so hot you could not even taste the beef. We were very disappointed. Ordered the boulevardier and Paloma cocktails and both were good. Our meals came and both the potato gnocchi and petrale sole were greatly under seasoned. We kept applying salt, but after the (overly) spicy appetizers we were just done. My husband described it perfectly as “muddy and bland”. We will not be returning for dinner. So many great places to eat in St. Helena, but this was not it.
The outdoor bar is beautiful and I would go back again to enjoy a cocktail outside, but dinner? Never again.
Normally a restaurant heavy on fresh air dining, our visit was on a crisp 45 degree winter night— indoors. Service was great, however, we were a few minutes early so the wait in the bar was uncomfortable. No place to sit and the lone bartender was no match for the crowd. There should have been 2-3 instead.
Food was very good as always.
We met our son for dinner on a Tuesday night - I checked the Farmstead restaurant website/menu and thought the Fried Chicken dinner sounded good and seemed like it was a great value. We made reservations through Open Table and I thought it odd that a Tuesday night in St Helena would only offer dinner seatings after 8:30 - everything else was sold out.
I called during the day to see if there was an earlier opening and was told to come at 8 pm. We arrived a few minutes early and there was no hostess to greet us - just another guest who said he had been waiting since 7:30 (his actual reservation time) and was a bit peeved that the hostess seemed to have forgotten about him. We were directed to wait outside by the bar. At 8:20, I went to see when our table would be ready and ran into the previous guest with the 7:30 reservation who was still not seated!
Finally, seated at 8:30 but waited for 7 minutes for the waiter to approach us and then another 5 minutes for a glass of water. Selected our food, which arrived quickly and was overall pretty good. Time for dessert after the long wait - and they were out of beignets! Turns out that the restaurant had a festive evening planned, with special menu for Fat Tuesday, which was why it was so crowded. However, the info on that was not on the restaurant tab on the website, but under a tab labeled Events. Would never have checked that tab and would not have chosen the restaurant had we known that it was a special menu and event.
In defense of the wait staff, they seemed very tired and I am sure they worked their butts off for the event. But for those of us dining at the tail end of the evening, the service was not what would be considered satisfactory. My husband did run into our waiter, who was cleaning the Men's Room. Hubby was wishing we had left him a larger tip, as he was consciencous!
Let me start out by saying I am one your biggest fans, like I salivate just mentioning Farmstead. We came in on Tuesday for our 5th time coming up for Fat Tuesday. Unfortunately we were given the absolute worst table in the restaurant, situated next to the band with both speakers directed at our heads. We were unable to talk with our friends due to the volume and close proximity of the table to the band and all ended up with horrible headaches. Mind you we made this reservation weeks in advance yet when I went to the hostess to ask for a different table I was told it would at least 20 mins before they could move us ;( at this point we had already been seated almost 20 mins after our reservation time. We asked to informed as soon as we could be moved because it was unbearable, lots of apologies but never got moved. At one point it was eluded to the next round of drinks would be taken care but yet we were charged for them. We even asked to speak to the manager yet never saw one. As locals who love and support your restaurant this was an epic let down.
Friendly advice, the metal 4 top round should not be seated when you have live entertainment.
Wow! My Boss recommended Farmstead to me last weekend for my birthday and it did not disappoint. Loved the food, setting, cocktails....everything!! We will definitely come back when we are in the area again. Can't stop thinking about my Butternut Squash Arborio Rice...heavenly!!
Had Sunday brunch with excellent food and service. The rice (risotto?) dish with squash was so delicious. We also had the cheese biscuits and charcuterie platter for appetizers - both were really good. One in our party had the ribs and loved how flavorful and tender they were. For dessert we couldn't resist the beignets with caramel bourbon sauce - yummy!
I brought my sister here for a birthday lunch during restaurant week. The restaurant week lunch menu was a great value. I checked in on yelp for a complimentary order of cheddar biscuits. So good! We ordered the warm burrata appetizer - it comes with the greatest tostini, roasted garlic bulb, and cornichons for spreading and dipping. We both had the deliciously fresh lacinto kale salad. My sister had the pulled pork with slaw, and I had the risotto topped with all sorts of fresh roasted veggies. We topped it off with a complimentary dessert for her birthday- we chose the chocolate pie. It had a velvety filling and a delectable graham cracker crust. We chose the Long Meadow Pinot Gris to accompany our meal. Service was attentive, friendly, and not intrusive. The restaurant has the perfect casual but upscale Napa farm to table vibe. Will definitely come again!
Kipp Ramsey was our first person we met when we walked in. His personality and pride in what Farmstead is, was contagious! We read about this restaurant in Garden and Gun and the food and experience exceeded our expectations. We have already eaten there twice in two days!
A must if you are a foodie! Excellent wine too
Thank you Farmstead!!!

We were here on a weeknight, on the late side. Things were still quite busy when we arrived but the noise level was just fine: we could hear each other across the table but the place felt pleasantly lively. Service was fine, a bit chipper. The kale salad was delicious - flavorful greens and very tasty toasted parmesan. The "brick" chicken with canellini beans was hearty and satisfying - a great entree for a cold night. Nothing was mind-blowing but it was a very good meal -- even in the competitive local market -- and I would certainly eat here again.
Wanted to try this restaurant during Napa's Restaurant week which is a great opportunity
to have two to three courses for a modest price. We were not disappointed! The two courses
included a squash soup which was amazing, with hazelnuts and greens on top, delish! The pulled pork sandwich, which EVERYONE serves, was a cut above with home made bun, cole
slaw and a very tasty bacon infused potato salad with a bite! It was a grey day but lively inside
and is really a destination with outside seating in good weather, their own gardens, a café and
wine tasting area, check it out!
We have been here many times,as we are locals. Sad to say the server was very hurried. We all thought he spoke too fast, moved too fast, and generally appeared to be trying to turn the table as quickly as possible. Either that or he was on speed... but the food was good as always.
