Farmhouse Los Angeles

The service was incredible from the bartender to our server to the owner - it felt very familial as if we were dining in their home. Great food and cocktails! We look forward to our next dine at Farmhouse.
This place must not typically get many customers because they were completely overwhelmed by the crowd they got this Saturday night (and the dining room was still not full). Our evening started with long waits at the valet line, longer waits to get a server's attention at the table, various staff coming out after orders and replacement orders were taken to tell us the kitchen had ran out of items we ordered, and forgotten items when food finally did materialize. At one point we had two of the same mushroom pasta entrees on the table, the second of which was clearly rushed and made incorrectly as it was watery and missing the butter that made the first version tasty. Another pasta dish was undercooked to the point of being inedible.
The table across from us got up to leave after hearing half the menu was unavailable, and we would have been smart to do the same but were enjoying the ambiance of the room and hoping the meal would improve.
The check contained errors at the end of the night, charging us for items that had never made it to the table. The manager should have appeared at that point, but he was busy apologizing to other tables. We couldn't find our server and needed to leave for a show at Largo, so paid at the bar, which was empty.
Farmer Nate must have been out in the fields last night because he certainly wasn't running his restaurant. We will not return, but hope the space is taken over by more capable hands as it's a nice room.
The food was fanrastic. Flavors spot on. Presentation beautiful. Our server was knowledgeable and truly delightful.
We ordered grilled Caesar salads with beef; in light of the Romaine recall, the menu stated that we would receive grilled Little Gem. That was fine. The salads arrived. The salad was not grilled. The lettuce was a kale, not the Little Gem. We sent them back. The server told us that the kitchen had to substitute because of the Romaine recall (as if the menu had not already changed this). As a replacement we were served iceberg with the same beef (an item on the menu) and were charged the more expensive price of the grilled Caesar with beef.
After having chosen this restaurant based on the menu posted on its web site and elsewhere, once we were seated, we learned that the menu is subject to frequent changes that are not reflected on the web sites. A number of the items that had sparked our interest were not available. Which was extremely disappointing. It's also very expensive. Beware.
The food was amazing. Good service , nice atmosphere, highly recommended.
Great server Bethany!
Disappointing brunch. The avocado toast was bland and the taste was off (how do you wreck avocado toast?) and the egg on top was cold. Just not a very good meal.
good place to have a nice mean and be able to hear your companions talk!
Very good, the waiter could’ve waited a little longer to collect the plates to let us finish our meal. Other than that, very nice.
Unfortunately the bar was "backed-up". This was the case the first time I visited too. My concern (which was shared with our waiter) was that because we waiting so long for our cocktail, our food would arrive just as we were enjoying a drink. And that is exactly what happened.
Because of this, bus staff cleared our drinks including my "shaker ice" before we were done. It was a drag.
I ordered the mushroom pasta which was good but could have been seasoned a bit more.
I chose for business meeting for daytime but music is so loud, and pop music, not a great for business meeting
The lighting was a little bright; was hoping for a slightly more subdued atmosphere (especially for a dinner seating). Service was fine, but not exceptional; bartender was friendly.
A lovely restaurant located at the corner of Beverly Center. The restaurant does not represent the Nth degree of Michelin starred destination restaurants, but it offers the acme of what the LA semiformal ambience can afford. The noise from the music and TVs at the centrally located bar was not obtrusive. Staff are relaxed, casual, and attentive. The attention to detail in regard to silverware, plates and food is all very good.
The food was brought out promptly, timing of courses was perfect, and the flavor was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the handmade pasta. The gnocchi were outstanding. Even the sunchokes were decent -- and honestly how much can you do with sunchokes? Desserts were also excellent, a bit of a twist on the usual fare -- in particular the Cheesecake was memorable.
The total cost for dinner for two (two entrees, one appetizer, water (for which they charge $8!) and two beverages came to just over $100. A bit steeper than you might pay elsewhere, but in general I would say it was in line with the quality of the food and service.
I was quite happy overall with the experience, and I would not hesitate to return for another birthday celebration next year!
Superb food, Excellant service ... salmon was outstanding!!!! Can’t wait to go back
Incredible staff, food, ambiance!! We celebrated a birthday at farmhouse over the weekend, we were a party of 12, and us the best experience! Definitely recommend this restaurant for a special night occasion and for large parties. The staff is really great and the drinks were delicious! Can’t wait to go back!
Exceptional food created with ingredients sourced from the owners farms and combined in very interesting ways! I will make an effort to dine there again when I’m in Los Angeles.
Excellent service, very friendly staff food was delicious!!
The food was good, our server was awful. He knew nothing about basics questions about the food. He was short, rude and it was like we were bothering him. This place is not kid friendly not even a little... don’t bother if you want to enjoy a brunch with adults and kids. Everyone except the hostess seemed to have an attitude problem. I was very disappointed because I was looking forward to having a good experience
Great food and ambiance
We loved the owner and the story behind restaurant.
The Farmhousei is wonderful. The food at lunch was excellent. Greg with one of the best servers I’ve ever had. Charming and attentive and friendly. He made the experience most enjoyable
Last year we hosted our annual holiday party at Farmhouse and it was wonderful. This week we took a friend to try it as well as see what's in season, to possibly host the holiday party there again and were we disappointed! Three of us dined and 2/3 dishes were disappointing. One of us ordered the gnocchi and the portion was very small portion. The other person ordered the spaghetti pomodoro and the pasta was completely undercooked (we were dining with an Italian and he confirmed). The only two dishes that were OK were the grilled bread and the Caeser salad. Then, when we asked for the check, there were additional items of the check, which we hadn't ordered. This was a night and day experience from last year and we were very sad. The chef is great and the dishes are usually delicious and plentiful so it was sad to have had this experience.
Employess really rude. Bad service
I love the look of the restaurant. I ordered a chicken avocado sandwich which was lathered with so much sauce I never tasted the avocado. Plus it was a messy sandwich to eat. But I will certainly return to the restaurant and try something else. The menu could be a little bit more extensive.
Great meal. Easy parking and wonderful staff.
I'll definitely be back!
Our family ate here for dinner on a Friday night. We had reservations and were promptly seated. The server was excellent, attentive but not invasive. The food was good, the fresh tomato salad excellent.
We started with the appetizers and they were impeccable. But when the main course came, we were very disappointed. When I was about to order the gnocchi, the waiter warned me the portion wasn't big. He wasn't kidding. US$15 for 6 tiny ricotta gnocchis on the plate! The portion was even smaller than any of the appetizers, which doesn't make any sense to me! The spaghetti, served with pomodoro sauce, was so thick it resembled buccattini and it was very chewy (not al dente). We also ordered skate but it was very fishy.
One of the best Eggs Benedicts in the city!
Waiter was not very friendly. Considering the amount of bill, did not enjoy the dining experience.
We found this restaurant to be exceptional in several ways. The food was extremely tasty reasonably priced and on top of that very healthy. I highly recommend trying Farmhouse.
The restaurant was surprisingly empty. We came for dinner at 5pm. The service was good but the food was just so so. The pricing was high, dinner for 2 was $100 and we didn’t even order the expensive meals. I would t have a problem paying if the food warranted the prices but it didn’t. Presentation was beautiful but the taste didn’t measure up to those prices.
Food was good and our server Alex was great
This place is unparalleled. The food is so fresh and flavorful and the staff so helpful it will be hard to believe it’s in a mall. The owner is always on hand to deliver meals or to water the live plants adorning the ceiling and walls. There are numerous amazing dishes but the roast beef sandwich and battered cod sandwich are standouts.
And let’s talk about the heirloom and burrata salad that is crave-worthy. It’s perfect. In every way.
The staff is friendly and will help make suggestions so you can have the perfect dining experience.
I can’t say enough great things about this place.
Tip: valet your car. It’s right outside the restaurant (inside the Beverly Center). The restaurant validated your parking so it’s free for 3 hours.
The food was wonderful and so was the service. Landon did a great job as a server and we will definitely be back. We loved everything about our experience here.
So satisfied I chose this spot for the 2nd time. Food is healthy real yet delicious. Especially the pizza and potato nee-yo-keez. The experience is grand natural materials easy going and sophisticated.
Good food, excellent service (waitress & busing).
My friend arrived before me. I told the hostess that she was seated and headed over to the table. The hostess must not have understood me and attempted to ask me to wait. However, I saw my friend and joined her at the table.
We had an excellent lunch combo that began with the heirloom tomato caprese salad with the perfect
olive oil dressing and just the right amount of salt and crunchy french bread croutons followed by
the fried sea bass fish sandwich - delicious!!!
We had the warm chocolate chip cookies with sweet whipped cream for dessert - amazing!!!
Birthday for our 10 year old Goddaughter.. lovely evening and great food and atmosphere.
