          I never write reviews but this was an expensive meal so here it goes. I was so looking forward to dining here after following The Hope Farm on Instagram. I went with my daughter who is 20. We arrived at our 7 PM reservation on time it was cold outside so they put us inside. Thet put us by the entryway to the outdoor seating area which was a busy entryway. The door opened every five seconds with a blast of cold air and was very distracting. I don’t get to see my daughter often so it would’ve been nice to not have this distraction. Then our waitress completely neglected us and I had to wave her down just to get the check. I am usually a very generous tipper but not tonight. So disappointing.

          Our server had an 8-person dining room on the second floor; we were on the ground. Our server was frequently nowhere to be found, forcing me to leave my chair (twice) and flag down other passing wait staff (thrice). I complained to the general manager, whose only response was "I PERSONALLY have nothing to apologize about. On my credit card slip (which I photographed to share with other people) I wrote "crappy food", "crappy service" and "crappy manager". If these people hope to succeed as an upper-end restaurant they need to modify a lot of the things they think and do.

          First time visiting the hope farm… noise level was a little loud but food was great. It took a little bit of time to get assistance as it was a busy night but overall had a great experience.

          We love the atmosphere at The Hope Farm. Have never had a bad meal or a bad drink! The weekly wine flight is a great way to try new wines and pick new favorites. We love Wednesday burgers and Boozy Brunch.

          Great meal and wonderful service. The grounds are beautiful. We sat at the high top which we loved. Our only complaint is having counter high chairs at a bar height high top table. We will definitely be back. This is a wonderful part of Fairhope’s food scene.

          We were seated next to a large woman’s shower party. Very loud. The steak was delicious but the brunch bowl was cold and the dill fried chicken was disappointing especially for the cost. The Hope Farm is only enjoyable when sitting outside. The inside has a problem with noise. The price of the drinks and the price of the entrees are high for the quantity given.

          This is the second time in a row that service has not been up to par with the ambiance and cost of this restaurant. I drive almost an hour to dine here. Will definitely have to reconsider next time this is suggested.

          Hope Farm was perfect for my husbands birthday dinner. Even though it was cold we were seated near the fireplace and dressed warm so we were comfortable. Our server Logan went above and beyond - we just loved her. The staff was exceptionally impressive on their knowledge of dishes as well. Highly recommend!! Thank you for a memorable night!

          Been here several times, but last night must have been an off night. We made reservations to take guest from out of town. We were seated at the first table near the front door, but asked for an alternative which the host did not accommodate. Service extremely slow, over 1 hour just to get the appetizers on the table. Waitress uncaring, and the usual amuse-bouche not offered. After addressing the issues with our server, didn't even receive the courtesy of a visit from the manager on duty.

          Our steaks were not cooked to temperature, even the second attempt. It was the worst tasting steak I have ever had, very bland and tough and white in color rather than red. Everyone was disappointed in their steaks. Our server was very knowledgeable and professional, however, I rated the service score low because the one guest that has food allergies was served the wrong dish and she began to eat it before our server caught the error. The food was not delivered at the same time either. The atmosphere was beautiful. I will not return.

          Amazing experience! The mushroom salad was one of the tastiest, most unique things I've ever put in my mouth. Just heavenly! The burger was delish; the oysters were perfect and the martini with blueberry tincture was to die for. Our adorable waitress, Emily, made us feel right at home and her team made our experience delightful.

          We throughly enjoyed our dinner at Hope Farm, and would highly recommend it, especially for a big gathering- we had 11, but the room and table was perfect for a large group. The waiter was very professional and we were greeted by the owner who answered our questions about his farmed mushrooms and veggies. Food was very good, and nicely presented, the wine list was extensive. . Can’t wait to go back again!

          We were on vacation in Fairhope and decided to try Hope Farms. It was a great choice! Beautiful setting, incredible food, and wonderful service. It’s a unique place and well worth the visit.

          This was the first time that we had been at the Hope farm restaurant. We had asked people to live locally in Fairhope about places to go and hope Farm was given very high praise my folks of eating there. We had an opportunity to meet the chef young man by the name of Carlos and he was awesome and provided us with a great deal of information. Everyone at the restaurant was extremely friendlyAnd courteous and the food was definitely a five star meal. We plan on going back to Hope farm when we’re in the Fairhope area again next year. Anyone looking for a enjoyable evening and an awesome dining experience she gets serious consideration to eat them at the Hope farm.

          Thank you so much for the kind words!! We will let Chef Carlos know. He is great! Come back and see us please!
