          We ordered a Farm Board, lots of small plates and beverages. Everything was delicious. I can’t wait to go back to try the brunch menu and looking forward to warmer weather for outdoor dining.

          Our server was appropriately attentive but definitely not friendly. Was disappointed in the food choices. I wish there were more seafood options. The toast of the mushroom toast was hard and dry. The scallop small plate was very good.

          According to the online reservations, the only opportunity to dine was 3:30 p.m. well the dining room was basically empty till we left. I wanted 5 p.m, said was unavailable but that was definitely not the case. Also ordered ½ dozen oysters to go along with our appetizer, never showed up. When the main course arrived we told the server not to worry about it. Portions were extremely small for the money spent. Obviously I don’t mind spending the money, but need to feel like it was worth the cost.

          The Mushroom Soup was divine and I will order it every time it is on the menu. The Wellington Flatbread was yummy and enough to take half home for lunch the next day. The Ribeye and Mashed Potatoes was excellent, although my husband wished there were more of the potatoes (they were so delicious). Our waitress Savannah was awesome - very attentive and spot-on with everything. Oh, and try the Smokin' Hombre drink if you want a refreshingly different margarita-like drink. House Made lemon-lime soda, cucumber, smoked salt and the kick of mezcal.

          The Hope Farm has it all! The restaurant and grounds are gorgeous, live music outside, patio lighting and simplistic farmhouse decor all contribute to a great ambience. I had the Night Night cocktail, gin and chamomile, I love a good gin cocktail but the wine list looked quite intriguing! The food was delicious, it’s hard to find a restaurant in Eastern Shores that isn’t touristy and generic. The farm board is quite extensive and has everything a charcuterie and cheese board should have, really hit the mark. The fried chicken was perfectly crunchy and yet moist! It was a real treat having the chef come to the table! You don’t see that attention to detail and personal connection in many restaurants these days! Overall I highly recommend The Hope Farm, it truly has it all! -attractive venue -captivating cocktail menu -intriguing and rather extensive wine menu -delicious food -great customer service I can’t wait to bring family when they are in town!

          Hope Farm didn’t disappoint! Sandi our server was outstanding, paced out our small dishes so we had just a few at a time and nothing would get cold. And it was worth it - every dish we had was outstanding. The Chef’s pasta special was a standout! And save room for dessert - we tried the lemon blueberry cheesecake, the peanut butter mousse, and the flourless chocolate cake. Perfection! We will be back!

          It was so cute!!! The waitress was amazing and so knowledgeable about the farm to table foods. She was kind and sweet too! The atmosphere was beautiful. We sat outside and there was live music. Two women singing covers and they were great!! The food was good too. My only complaint was the portions were SO small. After we finished our lunch we had to order more food to be full and we aren’t big eaters!

          If you are looking for a special dining experience, dine at The Hope Farm in Fairhope, Alabama. The food and presentation, as well as the service, rivals that of the best restaurants anywhere. You will not be disappointed in any way.

          Chefs Carlos and Troy could not have been more professional or accommodating; and their staff mirrored these same traits. We celebrated a 21st b'day where the star is a Vegan. The team went out of their way to provide her with a "one of a kind" meal, and the rest of our dinner party could not have been happier with the menu offerings. A first class experience from a first class restaurant!

          Beautiful restaurant. Very Napa. Wonderful outside. Food was another situation. Steak to tough to cut. Fresh fish was from NC not the coast. Not so fresh. Manager was very nice. He has a major task ahead of him to make the food as great as the venue.

          Our daughter was visiting from Washington state for the holidays, and this was a first time visit to Hope Farm for all of us. It proved to be as good as we had heard from friends. Wonderful addition to Fairhope restaurants!

          Best ribeye and potato’s I have had. Would recommend others to go! Price is a pretty penny though

          This was our monthly trip to The Hope Farm, each time hoping it lives up to its hype. Gorgeous interiors and exteriors to swoon over. Fires burning in the fireplaces. The setting nearly perfect, except that huge screen tv showing commercials and football (and mind you, not even not AL teams!) at 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday night. It killed the ambience. Service was fine, just a little off - mains arriving when entrees still being finished, utensils forgotten, etc. Not terrible, not great. For $300+ for 4 people, we want to say "wow" every time. It still hasn't happened ... including the time the restaurant tacked on an additional 50 cents to a $100/pp meal for a dollop of extra dressing. We'll probably give The Hope Farm another try or two, we want to love it! After that, it's to replace the monthly effort here with fabulous and consistent Thyme, Camellia Cafe, and Fairhope Inn!

          We really enjoyed our night out. Was a little concerned about being outside cause it was cold but the restaurant had big outdoor heaters and it was perfect.
