Dining with another couple on Valentine’s Day. IMHO this is the best food in our part of the Philadelphia suburbs. Have been here several times and never disappointed. South Philly style pork sandwich was the best I ever had. Just two small bar/alcohol criticisms/suggestions. Should stock Prosecco which is popular and our friend wanted; and martini glasses are a little small prefer larger and cone shaped.

My fiance and I went to Farm and Fisherman for Valentine's Day. We've been talking about going for the last two years, and never went. Man do we regret not going sooner! This was hands down, one of the best meals we've had in a long time! I got the fish of the day, scallops. He got the prime rib special. Both were phenomenal, drinks were superb, and service was great! We will absolutely be back!!

Excellent food and service. It was very busy and therefore noisy. We were seated next to the drafty front entrance. Next time we will request a quieter table.

Nice Friday night dinner - Happened to be Valentine's Day. My wife, daughter, and I went for an early dinner. Jennifer was our server. She took our drink orders promptly, and just as promptly returned with our order filled. The martini was a very generous pour!
We shared oysters (a little pricy at $3 per), but they were delicious.
Entrees: My daughter had shrimp lo mein, my wife had the chicken in hay (that's right), and I had the roasted cod. All three: 2 thumbs up.
Didn't have much room for dessert, but we ordered anyway. I chose the sticky toffee pudding, which rivaled any I've had in the UK. We didn't have much room, but the dessert disappeared!
We've been to both F&F's several times (our other daughter lives close to the NJ location), and have never had anything close to a bad experience. I would call it a very well executed high-end gastro pub.
Am I allowed one gripe - TOTALLY unrelated to the F&F food, drink, or ambience? Why do young men of a certain age insist on wearing their ball caps inside? A gentleman removes his hat as he walks in the door!

We had made reservations and upon arriving we were seated promptly. We ordered a cheese platter and the Mediterranean Veggie Plate for appetizers. Both were delicious and more than enough for the 4 of us to share. Our entrees were the Atlantic Code over polenta and the scallops over a pistachio pesto pasta. Each was cooked to perfection and had just the right amount of seasoning. All entree's were generously portioned.
We were too full for dessert but were impressed by them as they were being served to the surrounding tables.
We had a very good experience and look forward to our next visit. Next time we'll come with a larger appetite so we can enjoy the desserts! Come hungry and you won't be disappointed!

Took my sister her for lunch to celebrate her birthday. Food and service was outstanding. Burgers were great and my side salad had a light flavorful dressing. Even the Apple crumble dessert, which was brought with requested candle, was delicious. I am looking forward to trying dinner sometime soon.

This has become a favorite among friends. The dishes are mostly fresh new takes on comfort favorites. Try the roasted cauliflower, which is a staple on the menu. And if you get there soon, the shrimp lo mein!

Delicious food! Have the chickpea fries, people.

Service was attentive and friendly, but not intrusive.

Fresh ingredients. Locally sourced. Seasonal.

It could be noisy when full, we went early, like 5 on, and it was still a little loud. I think the modern decor that has so many hard surfaces-walls, floors, tables, windows- makes this and establishments like it kind of hard on old ears like mine.

But it is very pleasant.

I had the bloody beet salad without the veal drippings and it was really tasty. I had half portion and it was plenty. My wife had half portion of wedge salad and, same. Then for entree she had the scallops special with risotto and watercress salad and she loved it. I had the vegetarian bean chili and it was very tasty and filling. It had some potato medallions seasoned and baked with. Thick slices. yum. There were about 12 different beans in the chili. Big tasty! Did I mention the chickpea fries? They come with some kind of sauce for dipping. I know what it’s called but my phone keeps changing it to Roman coliseum or something equally nonsensical.

I am sure it fills up every night that it is open. Make reservation.

Highly recommended!

Good menu with a nice variety. Great selection of beers, and appetizer and small plates. We enjoyed splitting a beet salad with the cheese board, deviled eggs and Bavarian pretzel which made for a nice light dinner. Delicious food and service was great. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant. Beers on tap are excellent and worth exploring. You will find lots of business dinners from local companies. Very nice establishment.

This was our second time dinning. Very please to advise the Dailey fish special was very very good. The fish cooked perfectly on the rare side served on a beautiful salad. Far exceeded expectations. The mushroom toast app and potato skins were also very enjoyable. No doubt we will return

My family and I really enjoyed our experience. Even though we went at a peak time on Saturday, we received excellent service from our server, Manny. Among our food choices were the mussels appetizer, wreck fish special and steak, which were all excellent. Very high quality ingredients and preparation.

I’ve been to Farm and Fisherman a few times and they never disappoint. Their cocktails are excellent - kudos to the bartenders who make the best lemontini! The food is always fresh and delicious. The meals are a little pricey but you are paying for the freshness and quality which is fair. The tiny doughnuts are the best dessert but they don’t always have them. They change up the menus which adds to the appeal of this restaurant. You can’t go wrong here.

The food was excellent and the service was pretty good. The server didn't ask if we wanted a drink however and was just there for food order it seemed. The drinks took a while and our appetizer beat them to the table. Not how I like to dine. The bar is over the top loud. Restaurant was much better but I did have to lean in a little to hear.

We went for lunch. The service was extremely slow and we were very cold near the windows. The restaurant seemed very under staffed. The food was good but getting drinks took the better part of an hour!! Not a good choice for a business day lunch unless you have hours to spend on lunch.

What a great find! Excellent wine and beer choices, great menu that isn't just "the usual". Service was excellent in all areas - at the hostess stand, the bar and at our table. Loved the apps as well as the entrees, too fulll for dessert but they make their own ice cream and sorbets.
The bar area also has dinner tables and is great if you want to watch the game.
A great experience, we'll be back!

Appetizer offerings are unusual and limited. Waited almost 15 minutes until server approached table. On the plus side food is very fresh. Entree salad size is small and does not fill bowl it is served in.

We went for specialty non-alcoholic drinks as noted in the newspaper and menu. We were told there were non just the usual mocktails on request. Nothing special there! We were seated in the bar area next to a door that kept opening. It was loud and cold!
We had tried eating here when it first opened but never went back. We thought we would give it another chance.Four of us spent a long time looking at the menu trying to find something we would like to eat. Menu not very healthy, mostly fried.Finally, decided on fish and chips . They were not very good !

Slightly disappointing. The service was excellent; the food was good but not great, and the wine was average. Our table was right next to a server station, which unfortunately meant that I felt a breeze from the servers walking behind me throughout the meal.

I had the chicken baked in hay, and my wife had Atlantic cod with pumpkin polenta. Mine was good not great, but my wife really liked her meal.
Our server was very good, although I felt I could detect her frustration with us when we declined a second glass of wine, then dessert, and then coffee or tea. We still left her a nice tip, though.

Overall, it’s just not a good value for the prices they’re charging.

I remember reading a review regarding the bread before dinner, while you would sit and drink wine or cocktail. The person was so right on, it was terrible! We took a bite and put it back on the bread plate. I'm surprised with every they do regarding the meals, it would be so easy to order good bread from a reputable bakery near by or Center City. YUK!
We ordered a bottle of wine and we split the Chicken cooked in hay. What a wonderful surprise, it was delicious. It almost reminded me of chicken you would get in a french restaurant. For appetizers we had the Rhode Island Calamari, it was also very good, and being from Rhode Island on the south beaches, I must admit it was pretty close to what you would get in RI (quality wise). My wife had the kale salad, that was also very good, dressing was the best. I you take a piece of calamari and some salad, it was quite the treat.
