This is our second time visiting Hope Farm while we are in town and it continues to be one of my favorites! Sandy, our waitress, was amazing and the food was delicious! We will continue to come back each time we visit fairhope!

Love this classy restaurant! We shared desserts that were as beautiful as they were delicious, along with fabulously crafted cocktails. The live music was so enjoyable in the beautiful outdoor setting. We will definitely make this a standard when we return to Fairhope.

From TX. I’d been looking forward to this for a while. I wish I could say it was worth the wait. The scotch cocktail was very nicely crafted; dessert was well presented, and appetizer was quite good. Main course and sides were quite disappointing -prominent ingredient/taste profile: LOTS OF SALT. Chicken was on the dry side. I should’ve mentioned it, but I didn’t want to miss precious time with friends dealing with it.

Flies around the table; unsavory beach attire throughout, please enforce a decent dress code; inability of hostess to handle influx of guests-8-10 people standing near desk; but, we will be back for such an outstanding menu and your architect guest compliments you on the quality of design and ambiance of your facility.

Overall nice experience. Service was excellent. Wine person in charge heard us mention we some sediment in our wine and he came by and explained why, and then offered to get us another bottle, which we declined. (the wine list is very limited, but the selections available were adequate).

We were disappointed that they were out of fish and ordered the Chateaubriand, which was very good. Would have liked to see the nice, big portable fan in the courtyard operating as the ceiling fans we were under could not keep up with the outside temp. Will definitely be back.

We are happy to hear that you had a good experience! Please ask for our Wine Director, Will Jones, next time you are in so he can guide you through the list and give you some suggestions! We are sorry to hear that you were not able to enjoy our fish dish. Unfortunately due to the storms in the gulf, we were not able to source from our local purveyors. However, we do look forward to offering our experience to you in the future!

The restaurant is beautiful and our waitress was delightful. Our oysters were fresh and fantastic. The shrimp toast sounded great and it came plated beautifully; however, there were too many competing flavors and ultimately it tasted overly greasy. We then ordered the Chateaubriand. I believe it was cooked sous vide because while it was tender, there was no brick/crust on the exterior. I’ve had a similar dish in Huntsville and it was cooked the same but at the end the chef seared the exterior. My son had the scallops and they were fantastic. The desserts were amazing—we had the lemon tart and chocolate cake.

Ultimately, the underwhelming main dish dish and appetizer did not justify the overly robust price.

The Hope Farm
Responded on July 15, 2021

Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate the you enjoyed our atmosphere and our service team! The Chateaubriand is sous vide. We will pass this on to our culinary team to make sure we provide the experience we are looking to achieve! Please come back and see us!

The food was good, not GREAT. The flatbread had too many flavors going on, the warm mushroom salad was excellent, scallops were yummy and mussels/clams were good. The service was a little lack luster as the mussels/clams were to be served with grilled bread and when we received the dish the grilled bread was missing. After asking the server about the bread the reply back was the dish didn't come with bread even though it said so on menu. Overall, the food is good and the ambiance is stellar. I wish the food was as good as the setting.

After all the hype, hard-to-get reservations and reputation for being “all that”, we were underwhelmed. The facility is very nice, but there was a loud wedding reception going on and we had to near-shout to carry on a conversation. The staff was polite and professional, but the service was tediously slow. And the food was good. Not great, just good, and the portions were tiny. I’m used to small portions from high end venues but you’d better have all your other ducks in a row to make up for it, and Hope Farm didn’t, at least not on this Saturday night. Maybe it was a fluke, maybe it was the wedding, but we were disappointed.

The service at The Hope Farm was top notch. I had made reservations for a friend and I. It was my friend's birthday. I had mentioned that in the reservation notes. When we got to the restaurant, they had a hand written birthday card for my friend, which was a nice and unexpected touch. My friend and I ordered cocktails and those were great. Our waiter had recommended a few of his favorites. We also ordered the charcuterie board and shared it, along with the "special" flatbread of the week. Both were delicious. We interacted with 3-4 of the servers, since others (besides our waiter) were bringing out our food. All of the staff were polite and informative. My friend and I ordered the crème brulee, for dessert, to share. We took a few bites and did not care for it. The ingredients were interesting; there was basil and lemon. We mentioned this to the waiter and he took it off the ticket and offered to get us something else if we wanted. Overall, a very pleasant experience and we will be back. I definitely recommend the charcuterie board because it has a wide variety of things to try and it is a large amount of food. My friend and I were not able to even finish it. I'm looking forward to dining at The Hope Farm again.
