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.

Farm and Fisherman always has very fresh tasting food and their creations are unique and satisfying. It was a joy to celebrate my birthday with family here and my dessert arrived with a beautiful birthday touch. I would eat here every night if I could.

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.

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide this feedback. I have already addressed the slow service with my staff so we can ensure that does not happen again. I have discussed your comments on the food with the Chef, and we are working on adjusting accordingly. Again, thank you for the feedback, as this allows us to improve and grow. Regards, Laura

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 !

Farm and the Fisherman never disappoints. From appetizer to desert, everything is fresh, local sourced and delicious. Great drinks too! Casual dining, but sophisticated food. Enjoy!

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.

Great food, very non standard. The prices are a bit higher for the same food elsewhere. They overcharged for oysters. 22 bucks for 4 oysters and 4 shrimps. Ridiculous. Otherwise, very nice place.

Dinner very pleasant, except for the three hamburger orders which were a bit mixed up. Server brought what looked like the one ordered without cheese, except he said it was well done. Another person took it who had ordered medium. She said she thought it was rare, so the first person took it. He bit into it and pronounced it well past rare. Found our original server who took it back without complaint and then returned with his fries on a new plate “to have something to eat”. Thoughtful. A new burger came out quickly. Also appreciated. But it wasn’t rare. Closer to medium. It tasted fine but still. Think defining rare in the kitchen would be useful.
BTW the portions of the chopped salad was generous and quite good.

I have been here a few times before and was looking forward to bringing my son who was in visiting. Most of the dishes were good but the rotini bolognese, the dish I was looking forward to, wasn't up to the usual standard and was almost bland. The z'atar wings were also disappointing. The kale salad and the potato skins were good, however.

This was our 3rd time visiting this restaurant and once again we enjoyed it immensely. Very friendly staff at the host stand, great servers including one of the bartenders who brought our drink to the table and stayed to chat with my young daughter for a few minutes-super nice guy. The food is delicious and there is always a great variety with something for everyone including veggies and other healthy selections that actually taste amazing! Looking forward to visiting again soon.

Interesting menu and food is well prepared (although I find most dishes too salty). Ambiance is okay but I do think the seating layout could be better as tables are too close together and room just feels awkward. Decor could be upgraded a bit to reduce the strip mall vibe. Overall the food and drink more than make up for any aesthetic issues!

Good food and drink menu, a little loud with tables close together. Service is very good. Food and prices are a little steep for the decor, but they give you a good experience. Oh, and try the ice cream — it is homemade and delicious.
