          Had a wonderful meal here. We sat outside and it was very pleasant. Our server, Alan, was very nice and helpful inner selections. Would ask for him again. The food was some of the best we had while in the Fairhope area.

          I love to eat local and support farm to table restaurants. I am disappointed that they charge me if I run out of dressing or aioli. Two dollars to sprinkle almonds over my salad instead of cherry tomatoes. Soon, they will charge me if I ask for a fork with my meal. Very frustrating

          We dined in last night for Mother’s Day, the food was amazing, the drinks were on point, dessert outstanding, but the best part of our dinner was Greg, our waiter!!! His service was outstanding. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone in the table was enjoying their meals and even gave us a tour of the restaurant and the house veggie patch. We will definitely be back and ask for him again soon!

          We truly enjoyed our Birthday Celebration at The Hope Farm. Everyone went well beyond our expectations! Jade was our waitress and she was very personable and competent. Mariah Whitney, the baker, made a special dessert for Robert and followed our guidelines for our Lectin Free lifestyle! So pretty and beyond delicious!!! The bartender made one of the best Long Island Teas I have ever had to date! Our compliments to the Chef - the Red Snapper was simply delectable and the Filet Mignon simply amazing!!! We can’t say enough about your restaurant- understated elegance allowing the earth to delight us with its bounty. We simply love this restaurant.

          The food was absolutely exceptional. We had the scallops, the filet mignon, the garden salad, and the warm mushroom salad. The mushroom salad was a delightful surprise. The garden salad paled in comparison. Our server was good. As always, the settings ambiance was wonderful. Definitely a favorite restaurant in Fairhope and anywhere!

          Food was overpriced. It was an experience trying new foods, but we will likely not be back due to cost. Scallops were salty. Ambience was beautiful, service was great. For our money, there are other fine dining restaurants we prefer in the area.

          Absolutely beautiful place. We dined Al fresco. Clean, sturdy, comfortable high quality outdoor seating with umbrellas. As a business (cafe) owner, the attention to detail regarding atmosphere is top notch. Food was delicious and fresh. Had the summer farm bowl with eggs. Will definitely make regular visits.

          What a delightful find. Fine wines, farm to table produce and a lovely setting. This is one of our new favorite restaurants in the area. Lovely seating inside or out. Great service. They were able to offer us an earlier seating than our reservation. I recommend the mushroom bisque and the warm mushroom salad.
