    I ordered the fried chicken liver app and it tasted good , but the choice of plating was wrong in my opinion. You don't want to fry something then stack it on top of each other to get soggy which i did. The steak dinner was really good. and the tart with olive oil ice cream was great
    Wm. Farmer and SonsResponded on May 13, 2024
    Dear Sue, Thank you for letting us know how we did. We appreciate the feedback on how the chicken livers turned out. We’re glad you enjoyed the taste even though you didn’t like the plating, and we’re happy that the steak and tart turned out just right. Sharing details about what worked for you and what didn’t is indispensable to us!

    I had a wonderful meal and experience on Sunday night at Wm Farmer and Sons that exceeded my expectations. Visiting from San Francisco, and having read reviews that highlighted a lot of praise and a couple of gripes, I was cautiously optimistic. While the restaurant was certainly not crowded at 8 PM on a rainy Sunday night, it had a wonderful ambience with the fire visibly roaring and the ability to choose my seat, graciously offered by host Dave. Having the ability to start at the bar and order a cocktail before settling in for dinner was a plus and seeing a South African Pinotage as one of the reds by the glass got me going right away! My server, Lynette, was friendly, poised, articulate, knowledgeable,and patiently highlighted the menu, including minute details of the ingredients from memory. She was the glue that held the entire experience together. I started with the oysters that were nicely small, expertly shucked, and not as briny as I expected (which is a great thing), followed by grilled bread and rosemary butter that was delicious in its own right. I coupled that with their very generous steak tartare over, I believe, minced beats, topped with a quail egg, that perfectly satiated me. I finished with a warm sticky toffee dessert topped with olive oil ice cream, and an expertly crafted white Negroni. Judging from the happy conversation, joyful sharing of each other’s plates, and nods of approval from the two couples sitting next to me, there was ample agreement that Wm Farmer and Sons hit it out of the ballpark that night! 
    Wm. Farmer and SonsResponded on May 13, 2024
    Dear Gerald, Reviews as thorough as yours are rare, so when we do receive one, we appreciate it! Thank you for taking the time to break down your experience with us. From having a cocktail at the bar before dinner to sitting by the fire on a rainy night, you paint a picture that really gets at the heart of why we started Wm Farmer and Sons. We think the details matter a lot when creating something larger, and that’s why we dedicate our efforts to each part of the dining experience: ambience, service, and of course, the food and drink. We will be sure to communicate your praise to Dave, Lynette, and the bartender. We're sure it will also make Chef happy to hear of how you enjoyed the food, too. Thank you again for sharing your experience; this was truly a joy for us to read.

    The restaurant is lovely and lively. It’s fun to be there. The service was fine. The beer was great. The food was average. We ordered a burger medium well. It came out rare and red. We ordered the pork chop. It was fine but had no special flavor at all. The endive salad was ok. Farm to table doesn’t mean great. Still, it’s such an attractive atmosphere that it’s worth average food.
    Wm. Farmer and SonsResponded on April 30, 2024
    We love a lively scene no matter the weather, but there’s something about the turn of spring that seems to make it extra special. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. It is good to hear the ambience and drinks were to your liking. We always appreciate feedback on where we can improve as well. Our farm-to-table approach is one we hold dear, and we enjoy showing off what the Hudson valley has to offer. With a menu updated to reflect what’s in season or just sounding good to Chef, we hope next time you can find something you really enjoy!

    It has been long enough since this meal that I can’t remember everything I had, but I remember that my main course was perfectly prepared trout and delicious accompaniments. My dessert was blackberry cobbler, which was also delicious and, since I’m lactose intolerant, the perfect type of dessert for me. The ambience of Wm. Farmer and Sons is old-Hudson-charming, but clean and spiffy, not the least bit dusty, or dilapidated. My servers and the other staff members were all very friendly and good at their jobs. It was a perfect dining experience!
    Wm. Farmer and SonsResponded on April 30, 2024
    Dear Connie, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review after your visit! We appreciate knowing what we did well or could improve upon.

You perfectly pinned the ambience of WM. Farmer and Sons: we made it our mission to highlight the beauty of our 19th century building and create a welcoming space. We’re very proud of our staff for all that they do to make your experience dining with us enjoyable and seamless. Thank you again for your kind words, and we hope to see you again soon.

    Some dishes were delicious and others only fair. The grilled Caesar salad was great. The kale salad was all stems and really tough. The oysters amazing but the burgers were just so so. For $60 per person average we would have expected a bit more. The staff always very nice and service was excellent. Atmosphere was fun but noise volume was high. Overall we enjoyed ourselves but won’t be rushing back.

    It's a lovely space, but we felt that the restaurant was expensive. Examples of expense: having to pay for bread and the minuscule size of the drinks. The limited selection of gins was also annoying. On the plus side, the hamburgers we had were great, and our server was delightful, efficient and attentive.

    It’s a beautiful and charming place . Farmhouse chic. We got there very late (9:30) but staff was welcoming and extremely accommodating. We had the burgers which were delicious. The only thing I would say is it is expensive- for casual dining . Nonetheless I will definitely come back.

    What an incredibly delicious meal in a lovely little restaurant. Service was excellent, and the oysters were some of the best I have ever had. I highly recommend the duck confit.

    William Farmer and Sons is a sophisticated restaurant for casual dining for special occasions or just an average night on the town. The farm to table food is superb. We have never been disappointed with our meal or drinks. The service is top notch. It feels like a family restaurant where the staff remembers you between visits.

    One of our best dining experiences in some time. Staff were pleasant, helpful nd non intrusive. The food was frankly exceptional, every course was lovely and now memorable. We have already recommended this special place in NY state. Thank you

    Charming spot in Hudson, NY. Unfortunately, not a great experience. Drinks were so/so -bartender didn’t know how to make a muddled old fashioned. Food was fair at best. One meal was sent back once and was brought back to the table inedible . My shrimp was good but lukewarm and the third diner wasn’t thrilled. Not a lot of gluten-free selections. Server was knowledgeable and very nice but I definitely would not recommend.
    Wm. Farmer and SonsResponded on February 11, 2024
    Dear Kmill, We appreciate you giving us honest feedback about your time with us. It is discouraging to hear that you did not have a great experience. We want both food and drinks to impress every time! Thank you for letting us know where we can improve. Our ever-changing menu does mean that gluten free options wax and wane. However, our staff are happy to point out which dishes meet certain dietary requirements, and many dishes can have items removed to meet those requirements. We can be reached at 518-828-1635 if you would like to discuss anything in more detail!

    Farmer is our go to spot for exceptional meals, service, ambiance. The place just gets better and better. Now with more local brews! The menu consistently changes but old standards are alway amazing. Ham board with home made biscuits pickles and chutney. And butter! Damn. We had an incredible southern shrimp dish and a pot pie. The best place in the Hudson valley hands down.
    Wm. Farmer and SonsResponded on February 11, 2024
    Dear Clark Lloyd, We are so excited about our local brews! We’ve never been shy about how much we love Hudson, so having the chance to showcase local offerings just seemed natural. We’re glad you stopped in and enjoyed another meal with us. Having a changing menu lets us keep old standards while leaving room for new creations, and it’s always a treat to see what guests gravitate toward. The ham board is certainly a staple! We feel lucky to be your go-to spot, and we are always honored by your kind words. We look forward to next time!

    Dinner was very good except for one of the entrees, the mushroom and artichoke pie. I had specifically asked if the overall consistency of the pie was wet or soggy and was assured it was firm; unfortunately it was pretty soggy. Everything else was very good, especially the chicken livers appetizer
    Wm. Farmer and SonsResponded on February 1, 2024
    Hello, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us! We’re glad to know dinner was very good, especially the chicken livers. However, it is unfortunate to hear the roasted artichoke and mushroom pie was not what you expected. We appreciate your feedback on the dish.
