Delicious seasonal meal by the fire. Lanterns light the long winter night. A beautiful oasis!
Food was excellent. The ambiance was relaxing with a fire blazing. The waiter was very attentive.
The Farmhouse is fine dining in a casual atmosphere at a great value.
Excellent service. Very attentive. Clean, beautiful table setting. Fast delicious meals. Will be back!
Food was hot, delicious, and served with a smile.
Very good food and ambience. We sat near a beautiful fireplace and had a wonderful dining experience. Dinner and drinks were delicious and I appreciated the gluten free options. I highly recommend especially if eating dinner prior to an event at People's Light Theater.
I’d definitely go back. The appetizers were great. The staff were friendly and attentive.
Awesome pre theatre meal. The staff was amazing—incredibly attentive and just a joy to be with. THe short rib grilled cheese and soup was to die for…..charcuterie board was VERY generous. Spinach salad ok….chicken on it was a bit too salty but had a great evening
Food was delicious… service was slow…,never received our salad, rarely saw our waitress
The experience was made good by the great service. Food was very good, too.
I was fortunate enough to have dinner on my birthday and we were the only diners. The food was excellent and well prepared. The wait staff was attentive and the drinks were also well prepared.
The food was delicious, & the overall experience was wonderful!
We went to the Sunday Matinee of the Christmas Carol at the People Light Theater which was an exceptional performance. We decided to dine at the Farmhouse afterwards. Can’t say enough about our wonderful experience. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. The menu offered a variety of foods for any palette. Our meal was phenomenal!!!! Kudos to the chef. The overall ambiance was lovely. I can’t wait to dine there again.
We went to the Christmas Carol and walked over to have dinner after. The food was great! Covid protocols were fantastic. Food was good.. the rooms were small and it was often tough to hear the waiter. Food was great, portions was perfect size, we enjoyed the food and atmosphere
Christmas outing for our 92 year old mother
This was our first time dining indoors - we had only previously been this past summer when the outdoor tent was set up. This is a charming restaurant - very friendly staff. Many people dine here before seeing a show, but we just wanted to have a nice dinner. We were seated in one of the rooms with a real fireplace - very enjoyable! The food is always very good - I had the pork medallions and my husband had the french onion soup and grilled chicken sandwich - all very delicious!
Warm and wonderful atmosphere, wonderful service, delicious food and just a perfect pre-show experience all around!
An extremely loud party at an adjoining table rather spoiled an otherwise lovely evening at the Farmhouse. A group that large might better have been seated a private room or alternate seaating might have been offered to those of us at the other two tables. The setting is perfect, the waiter was delightful and the covid protections were complete, but not intrusive. They made sure we got to the theatre in plenty of time. I had a great burger, but the home-made potato chips were far too salty. The pork medalions, tomato soup and spinach salad were very good, and prices are reasonable. We certainly will go again.
Six of us had the Thanksgiving buffet. The food was plentiful and very good. Service was spotty, perhaps because we were in an isolated room away from the main dining room. But the servers were friendly and helpful. We would have liked more green vegetables in the buffet, but, as a vegetarian, I found plenty to eat.
Great food and freindly staff. Grounds and interior were also wonderful.
The main menu items were excellent. The holiday staff looked a little rusty but overall, it was a very enjoyable meal.
Great Thanksgiving dinner at The Farmhouse! The ambiance was outstanding and the food was all quite tasty!
Lovely setting. They had everything my family wanted to eat. Great service.
Vinny Paolizzi was playing Guitar
It was romantic and we loved the ambiance
Everything was perfect. We reserved an outdoor table for a Thursday evening to enjoy the live music they offer. It was very intimate, the service was great, and the food blew us away. The value is unmatched. We will absolutely be returning soon.
What a beautiful place! The Farmhouse at People's Light has outdone themselves. I live in an old farmhouse so I immediately started to look around and appreciate all the character of both the interior and exterior. The dinner was absolutely delicious. I had the french onion soup and salmon. Not to mention the hot toddy was the perfect cocktail to have on a chilly, rainy evening. I would not have wanted to spend my birthday anywhere else. I cannot wait to go back on Thursdays for live music!
The food and service were great. It was raining, so we could not eat at the amazing space outside. But, we had a whole room to ourselves, so felt safe from Covid.
I took my family for my wife’s Birthday and we had a great time! The place is amazing and the food was really good. We had a great service, and the entire staff was super friendly and helpful! I highly recommend it!
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.
Tried out the new fall menu. Everyone happy with choices. Redecoration very attractive.
Another relaxing Thursday evening with great music, food, ambience.
Wait staff never asked to refill our drinks
Did not give name
May have been his first day
Did not refill water
Did not check on our table
Appeared nervous and wanted us to hurry
Since I was banquet wait staff
Thursday evenings at Farmhouse Bistro are becoming a tradition. Great music, great food, great service, great garden: this is the life!
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!
A very nice evening outdoors! A perfect picnic setting! Music playing in the background , black tablecloths and we had gorgeous weather. Looking forward to Fall…..
It was very pleasant experience, perfect for date night or family gathering.
Perfect. Not too Loud, music was great. Everyone friendly. Food outstanding
What a beautiful spot! Great food, cocktails, decor and service. Will definitely go back soon.
Everything was wonderful! The food, service, outdoor garden seating and live music made for an excellent evening. We were all impressed with the friendly staff and delicious dinner. Will definitely return!
It was great! Service couldn’t have been better. Food was fresh, and arrived on time and live music was a plus.
