We dined with a group of seven on a Saturday evening. Made reservations, seated immediately upon arrival. Kelly was our server and she was fantastic. We can be a rather loud crew. She handled us with deft aplomb! And did it all with a smile and excellent service. We had one hitch, my entree went to the wrong table and they had to remake my dinner. Kelly graciously brought us dessert at no charge to compensate. We were happy and had a great evening! I would strongly recommend Farmers Union to any and all!
We had a good pre-Sharks game dinner here - beer and appetizers - everything was tasty. I recommend the garlic shrimp and chorizo poutine. Bill seemed high for just appetizers and beer, but no individual item seemed over priced, so I guess that's just the cost of drinks and snacks these days. I would make a reservation for pre-Sharks game - it gets quite busy. I would definitely go back again.
Had a good time . Everyone enjoyed it.
Service was very nice.
Good food, mediocre service. We had 3 courses and our plates where never cleared when we finished each course. They took my husband’s fork and knife and didn’t replace it until we flagged our waiter down to ask again while his food was getting cold. I have a nut allergy so I’m always cautious when ordering dessert. For dessert, the waiter told me that the apple crisp didn’t have nuts, so I ordered it. What came out was a plate of hot apples and ice cream because they just removed the streusel topping. They were friendly about replacing with a different dessert (devils food cake, which was pretty tasty).
We came for Valentines Day so perhaps the service was bad because they were overwhelmed. However they should have known and accounted for the rush given that most tables had reservations. This place has been open too long for mistakes in service like this to be acceptable.
The service was good, but the food was not. The kitchen put zero effort into presentation of dull and unappetizing entrees. The pork chop was over cooked, dry and mealy, and the ribs were dry and chewy, when they should have fallen off the bone. The collard greens were prepared with too much vinegar and the potato salad tasted like it looked ... gray.
I have been there twice in 2 weeks, I thought after the first time I would give it a second chance as it was also a convenient location. Unfortunately both times the food was very disappointing ; Crab cake Sandwich - dry bread and little filling, fries were only warm and dry perhaps reheated? Second visit - Risotto was barely warm and very bland. Unfortunately both visits were for business and so complaining at the time was not an option, otherwise I would have sent the food back. Beer was good however.
The service was the best part, but the food was still pretty tasty. Excellent beer selection and our waitress was very knowledgeable. Great place for a casual hang out.
A group of us met up for brunch. Everyone enjoyed their food and our server Tor was great. bartender was ON POINT and everyone LOVED their drinks. We will be coming back!
A good place to eat and drink before an event in San Jose.
Wife B Day.. went great!
