Very relaxing, enjoyable evening outdoors on the porch for the intimate concert by Joe Greco. Fantastic musician, wonderful service and delicious food. We will go back, again & again. Manager roams table to table to talk with you and everyone is very nice.

What a beautiful evening! I wish we had discovered this gem earlier in the summer. Not crowded, wonderful service, fantastic food and drinks. It was such a cute outdoor setting. Only downfall is the picnic benches could use a little cushion after awhile. We will definitely be back!

Tablecloths only on a few tables. The entertainment was mediocre. The food was poor. This could be a very lovely setting but failed on many levels.

The Farmhouse is a hidden gem.
You dine in a beautiful garden.
Food is very good, great wine and cocktail selection and great service.
Top all that off with a person playing the guitar and singing and you have a perfect summer evening!!

Food was excellent, flavorful. Staff very attentive. Split the check for our party of 10. Red Sangria was fair- tasted only like peach schnapps.

If you are looking for charm and beautiful scenery with a side of great food and service, this is your place. They have a wonderful outdoor music series on Thursdays during the summer and many other events. The theatre there puts on some great professional productions as well. Wonderful wedding/event space too! (We are booked in Sept 2022 for our big day! Can't wait!)👰🤵

The entrees were delicious, the singer had talent and the staff were excellent. The only negative was the seating at a picnic table-the benches get harder by the minute after a while. But beautiful evening temperatures made dining eating a delight.

I have been to the Farmhouse many times and have always loved the elegant ambiance, beautiful garden, great service etc. I don't know if it was an off night but our salmon with dill sauce was good but not great. Our waiter might have been brand new but seemed very confused and when we pointed our an error on our bill he said, "Oh that might have been my mistake. I will see what I can do." It was never really resolved.

We were all seated out on the lawn which was fine. They had a solo act playing; a man on guitar. His voice was very very nice but the music was loud and very distracting for such a small space.

The owner (who I think is new) seemed to care deeply about his restaurant and could not have been nicer.

Cost - wise - It's always been pricey but I never minded because I always had such a wonderful time. They need to return to the old elegance and charm they had before.

Our waitress was very nice however our order did get delayed for 1/2 of the people at our table.
The food was ok. The setting was nice and quiet. I wouldn’t go there again but we still had a fun night.
