    On point and reliable execution of locally sourced ingredients meets Southern-inspired menu meets classic French cooking technique. Wm. Farmer and Sons is New American cuisine at its finest.

    First time for my entire family Food was great but service was just ok We wait over 50 mns for the food Servers were not friendly not genuine I can see because of the New Yorker clientele I guess We came as six family members for my husband birthday and we’re not impressed I think we felt let down by the servers when they realized we were not drinkers and made us wait long time for the bill .

    My son is the executive chef at the Pitcher Inn in Vermont and I’ve been telling him about how great Farmer and Sons was. So for his anniversary my wife, son, daughter in law and I went to dinner last evening. He was blown away loved everything about it. Thanks once again for a fantastic evening.

    In beginning, music too loud and inappropriate for dining. We requested a move to lower level not as close to bar. Seating tight. The waiting staff pleasant and efficient. Gas-fired fireplace ... warm ambiance. Now the FOOD: Fresh ingredients, creative dishes, very tasty, included healthy ingredients, and sometimes made us laugh. We had the kale for one of the appetizers ... it was a big mound of green - fried? - with a delicious cheese and olive oil. Unexpected. Ungainly, and not easy to eat. Glad it wasn't a first date - but made us laugh! Oysters were nice. My mushroom "steak" with sweet potatoes was delicious and husband's pasts with delicata squash was as well. Very enjoyable. We'll be back someday!

    Service and atmosphere are excellent. The menu is interesting. We started with roasted butternut squash appetizer , perfect balance of sweetness and acidity. For dinner we chose the grilled prawns, which were undercooked and chewy. The middlins were cooked perfectly but spicy hot. Also had the mackerel which was very good. This was our second time, and we’re disappointed. Noise level is pretty high.

    The chef tried too hard to be unique. The snail lasagna had an undercooked pasta patty over sweet tender snails. The pasta ruined the dish. The beef tartare was so rich and over done with spices that is was hardly eatable. The butternut squash was delightful and a true creation that showed the chef does have talent. The pork chop and black rice was tender and cooked perfectly. We skipped dessert. The offerings were not that appealing. The atmosphere here is amazing and could be great for a date, friends gathering or any occasion if the chef really balanced his or her talent.

    We love it. Very cozy, delicious, and convenient to train. Minor issue is that each time we’ve gone, they’ve been sold out of the burger, which is by far the most affordable main course on the menu.

    Outstanding cocktails. Super original. Lovely ambiance. Service could be friendlier and kitchen missed the mark on achieving proper doneness for the burger. A bit over priced overall. But the mackerel and gigante beans were superb. Also the oyster mushroom dish - great.

    Overall restaurant was very good. Presentation was superior. All dishes had unique flavors. Oysters were excellent. Beet appetizer was creative and delicious. Entrees (steak and pork jowl)were top cuts of meat, perfectly cooked and flavorful. Black rice was an unexpected delight. Dessert (pumpkin torte) was excellent. Coffee and cappuccino were robust. Farmer and son is a special restaurant providing a delightful dining experience.

    Think of eating really fantastic food on a park bench. It was our second visit, and completely different than the previous 5-star experience. Instead of being in the main dining room, we were seated in the coffee bar (Something something "spreading out") We get it; the past couple of years haven't done the restaurant industry any favors. But . . . The waitstaff didn't seem to remember we were there, and there was a constant small drama as a few couples were seated near us over the course of the evening, then remarked how cold and drafty their table near the window was, then were told by the staff that nothing could be done about it, with the the various couples finally leaving the room (for a main dining room table, I hope/assume). Our servers and service seem to have gotten lost in the literal shuffle. There was no ambience to begin with. We had great food, but it was not at all like eating at Wm. Farmer and Sons. So, go! Just make sure you're seated in the dining room rather than the coffee bar no matter what.

    The food here is FANTASTIC. The back patio is lovely although if the wood-burning fires are on you'll smell woodsy. The biscuits are not to be missed, and we also loved the prawns and the chicken appetizer. Fantastic cocktails!

    Had been wanting to come here for a while and finally made a reservation after spending the afternoon at Cooper's Daughter's cocktail garden. We arrived early and sat at the bar for a drink, first. The bartender was excellent, drinks were on point! Our table was outside, it was a beautiful night and the ambience was perfect. Our waiter, Noah, was amazing - very knowledgeable and attentive. The food was divine and did not disappoint! I had the wagyu steak and he had the Spanish mackerel and they were cooked to perfection. Overall, the evening couldn't have been better and we will definitely be coming back!

    Lovely ambiance in a beautifully decorated space. Service was great. Food selection is limited and vegetarian option seemed to be an afterthought. Late reservations may be disappointed as most popular entrees may no longer be available.
