Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch Ratings and Reviews
Fresh farm to table food that was just missing something. The carpacio with raw egg was good but didnt blow us away. The pork shop and accompaniments was excellent. The skirt steak special, though good, was actually a little disappointing. I would definitely go back as i think this could have been 4 ir 5 stars but our meal wasn't..
Our party had Mother's Day dinner at Farmstead. Although the food was good, wiater forgot to give one order to kitchen, resulting in delay for serving one memeber of party. Also, waiter seemed perturbed that elderly mother was having only portion of salad and soup, rahter than a full dinner. Otherwise, food was quite good and outdoor tables separated by fruit trees is a nice touch.
We very much enjoyed our lunch at Farmstead on our way back from the Napa Valley. It's on the southern outskirts of downtown St. Helena, next to a winery and a small farm. Food was very good, though the roasted artichoke was a bit too burned and dried out. (Wood fires too much all the rage these days!) The desserts, a very fresh and fragrant strawberry sorbet, and a luscious olive oil cake with vanilla gelato were to die for! The only drawback was our lackluster service, adequate, but not on a par with the setting or food.
Second visit here. First time everything was wonderful. This time, both steaks (ordered medium rare) were a little dry and tough and the risotto was a bit oily, but the rest of the food - pork chop, salads, desserts - were excellent. Service was also excellent. We will come back again.
Great ambience, upscale casual. Service was great, all the courses timed perfectly. Food was also great, I wouldn't say "to die for", but very good. cheddar biscuits were tasty, as well as the artichoke. Ordered the eggs benedict - most notable was the perfectly done crispy potato nuggets- kinda like french fries!! my cousin ordered the porkchop- it was perfect cooked, very juicy. Nice place for brunch, probably dinner too.
The feel and ambiance of Farmstead was great. Food was fresh, delicious, and just great overall. The only complaint would be with the steaks. They were very chewy and hard to deal with, even Medium rare. There is much better grass fed beef out there, however everything else we had, and the seasoning on the steaks was great.
I would definitely reccomend this place, but not if your looking for a great 'steak place', but more of a
Napa/California Cuisine restaurant with rustic flare and elegant comfort.
We've enjoyed light lunches at Farmstead in the past so stopped in for dinner on my husband's birthday. The strawberry soup was strange & had a considerable amount of heat in it. We left most of it in the bowl. We both ordered the grass-fed steak special & were sorely disappointed with the overcooked, exceedingly dry hunk of shoe leather that was served to us. The veggies were beautifully prepared but that was the only thing we liked. We ate about half of our steaks & left to enjoy dessert elsewhere. The server was practically invisible except when he ran past our table. And it turned out that we were charged $12 for each bowl of soup instead of the $8 on the menu because it was a special soup.
We've enjoyed lunch at Farmstead in the past so gave it a whirl for a birthday dinner. The strawberry soup ($12) was a mess of muddled flavors with a strange punch of heat. The grass-fed steak ($30) was dry, bland and overcooked. What a disappointment! The only part of our meal that we enjoyed were the beautifully prepared veggies that accompanied our steaks. Service was practically non-existent. We went elsewhere for dessert.
Great indoor ambiance and outdoor seating. Great spot to hang out in the outdoor bar with some appetizers and wine. Everything on the menu is delicious. The oysters are a bit weak and i probably won't get these again. I would come back and try more of the appetizers.
The food and the cocktails made up for the "fair" service. We had to remind our server on 3 separate occasions that we were missing our drink orders. In addition, another server dropped off an appetizer that we didn't order and it took several minutes and the waving of our hands to catch our servers' attention to this. Also, the appetizer that we did order - never came. It's a good thing we each ordered a starter to our main course. The food was outstanding! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal and we didn't let the deficiency in service shadow the quality of the food. We would definitely come back and hope that this was just an isolated incident in regards to the service, since I have been here twice before with no incident.
this was our second time eating here. the prior was for brunch, which was outstanding. this time we had lunch. the food was insanely good. best ice tea i've ever had. the ketchup was out of this world. i know it's hard to get excited about ketchup, but try this and you'll see. we ate outside under the filtered sun awnings. just terrific. our server was excellent-friendly and knowledgeable.
Felt we were given less desirable table right by door because we were open table reservation....another 4 top available which we asked to switch to but said they could not. Rushed through apps and salad, then quite a wait for main dish. Restaurant made a point when we checked in to say they recognized we had a vegetarian dining with us but never offered her different menu or suggested options off the menu. Service was not particularly attentive. Not bad but not the experience we had expected from what we had heard about this restaurant.
Dined at Farmstead with 4 couples Service was perfect. The appetzers were good but the mains were outstanding! Several of us had the sole ( myself included) that was an amazing flavour blend. I can't stop thinking about it and am longing to go back! Another friend had the trout and feels the same! The bar scene and restaurant had a lot of local farmers vintners. Always a good sign. Highly recommend Farmstead.
We had a very enjoyable Sunday brunch at Farmstead. We had reservations but arrived early and were seated promptly. The Mimosas were fresh OJ, the bacon was perfectly crispy, and the cinnamon rolls were fantastic. I'd recommend this brunch to anyone visiting the Napa Valley and I'd be willing to go back to try other meals!
Our second meal at farmstead based on what had beenA so-so experience in dec 2012. This time we had a great Server, the evening was not rushed, the starters and appsVery good (albeit basic) - a steak tartar, arugula salad withFresh strawberries, local oysters on the half shell.They have a solid wine list , fairly priced and even better theyHave only a $2 corkage fee (and it is donated !) so bring yourOwn special bottle or pay retail on the wine list.Organic beef rules here so we ate the NY Strip which wasTasty as well.All and all - a comfortable, homey place that serves goodFood at a fair price with a reasonably priced wine list to bootGood for crowds , they do a family style menu for bigger groupsAs well
Four of us had dinner together... table was ready when we arrived in a perfect spot. My wife and the other couple ordered grilled artichoke... excellent choice. I skipped the appetizer because the smoked St Louis ribs was a full rack... and it was outstanding.
We brought a 2010 Broman Sauvignon Blanc; the $2 (amazing!) corkage fee is donated to local charity. Restaurant wine selection was also excellent with several local wineries represented. We chose 2009 Shypoke Charbono... I haven't had this grape variety in years. This winery owns a large percentage of the remaining worldwide acreage! The wine was terrific. Order it to help them stay in business!
We will be back the next time we're in St Helena.
Our food was extremely great. But our server was horrible. He was very short and curt with us. We had our 2 yr old daughter with us and his attitude with us was very poor. The other guests around us were treated much better then us. He did not give us his time at all. And when he did it was very short, did not explain or go over the menu well with us like he had with his other guests around us. We left feeling that he was judging us on our age. His name is Ohadd. He did not deserve the tip that we left him. For such a great restaurant we had a horrible server. I hope that the restaurant can find someone who is much better then him.
This is a good solid restaurant. My husband always gets the ribs & he does not get them anywhere else. My favorite so far is the pork chop. Very juicy & flavorful. We love to share the starters. We had the grilled artichoke and the steak tartare. Delicious! Service is excellent . Ask for Greg - he is great! We will definitely go back for the food, service, and fun.
Farmstead serves wonderfully, fresh & fantastic tasting food in a beautiful setting with happy & friendly wait-staff. The soup & salads were creative and the beef was DELICIOUS. Every dish that we saw served looked inviting, well-proportioned. The grounds and gardens are lovely to walk through and the wine/olive oil tastings were another treat. It was by far, one of the best meals we've had this week in the Napa valley. Hoping to try it again before we head home.
Our party of six arrived for a Sunday morning brunch reservation about 30 minutes early (or, about 15 minutes after the restaurant opened). After a brief wait, we were escorted to a metal table and small metal chairs that looked more suitable to pre-teens people (not adults) right in the middle of a doorway that accessed the outdoor seating area (there were two such tables, and both were clearly added as an afterthought because they were the only such furniture inside). We asked if there was a better location that could accomodate us and, after initially saying no other spots were available (there were only eight other people in the restaurant at the time) and that everything was reserved for other parties, our hostess finally moved us to
Fantastic food, very fresh. I loved the topping for the rainbow trout, a mixture of fennel, bacon,toasted almonds and wild mushrooms...yum yum
Very relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and fast service. We will definately go to this restaurant again and suggest to friends!
We live in Northern Napa County part time, and this is BY FAR, our favorite restaurant in the area. Not only is the food always top notch, the atmosphere can't be beat (two great outdoor seating areas) and there's a cool vibe that is unmatched anywhere in the area. Farmstead's charm is in no small part due to Chef Kipp Ramsey, who always makes guests feel at home and pampered with his unique Southern hospitality. My husband and I give Farmstead top marks for all categories: date nights with just the two of us, for special occasions, for dinners with local friends, and visiting guests. It's the rare place that feels like a celebration in a low-key atmosphere.
