Our half-chicken and swordfish dinners were exceptional. The cuisine and service went beyond our expectations. A golden gem in the middle of Newton.

The food was fresh and everything on my plate was delicious. I ordered the Farmers Plate and it had the right amount of food. The potatoes were perfectly crispy and the eggs had a great texture to them. Will absolutely be going back.

As always, the food is great and the service is attentive. We took small plates and appetizers. The crab cake was fresh and flavorful. The cauliflower was to die for. The pumpkin bisque was very good. The burrata was just ok, Central down the road serves a better one. The bread is really good. For desert we shared shortbread and persimmon gelato which was very good. Even the jasmine green tea was good, and they serve it in a pot so it is kept hot. All in all this is a place you can always count on good food - no crazy innovations just well performed preparation with quality ingredients.

I've eaten at this restaurant many times and I am always pleased. The food is excellent, as is the service. It is not too noisy. It has a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The cocktails are great, as well as the wine list. It's a wonderful local spot.

I love having dinner at Farmstead Table and previously had a lovely breakfast/brunch there. But yesterday, even though the restaurant was not the least bit busy, the service was slow and the food was only so-so. The menu items were limited and quite eclectic.

My friend and I each had the autumnal salad with the grill chicken and it was delicious. Chicken was flavorful and very tender. We were there for lunch and it did get loud. Waitress seemed to have disappeared after leaving us with the check. It took 15 minutes to find anyone - and it ended up our waitress- to take payment.

Way overpriced and pretentious. A salad here is smaller than a side salad anywhere else and twice the cost. The burgers are dry and lack the "melt in your mouth" taste of authentic Wagyu (if there is such a thing in the US. Portions of all the food are very small and very expensive, some even look like finger foods. I know why I have not been back for a few years, and why I will not return. Very very disappointed.

The food at Farmstead is always good, but the service...NO. I have dined here 4 times. I keep going back because the food is great for a sweet, fresh lunch with your girlfriend - salad with a glass of rosé, anyone?. But each time I leave, I’m left with the same review. Good food - meh service.

No vegetarian entrees which was disappointing and our server never came back to ask how our food was or offer to get us another glass of wine. He then took out plates when we weren’t even done eating. Not a good dining experience!

Farmstead Table never disappoints. The ingredients are seasonal, local and very tastily combined. The menu is varied with great fish dishes. Loved the menu special cod the other day! This is a great place for lunch, where the service is prompt and unobtrusive, the salads are delicious. I particularly like the Autumn salad which has a wonderful walnut vinegarette. The chicken I had on top of the salad was moist and seasoned well. And lastly the popovers, their signature menu item is to die for!! Light, flaky with a dollop of jam, YUM

I had a delightful Sunday brunch. The menu was small but included both standard brunch fare and unique options keyed to special dietary considerations. All of us commented that our selections were unusually tasty. Service was friendly, efficient, and unobtrusive. Looking forward to trying lunch and dinner menus soon. Do make a reservation; tables were full during most of our meal.

We very much enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Farmstead Table. The exterior is understated but inside is a cozy restaurant with delicious food. The popovers and burrata appetizers were both fresh and so tasty. My husband had the swordfish and i had the beef tenderloin. All cooked to our liking and full of flavor. We would have stayed to try the desserts but we were in a rush to get somewhere after. We would definitely go back just for the popovers!

The dinner was excellent. They had a new menu, with venison ragu, excellent. The table was in a corner and nice and quiet for a friendly dinner, and the waitress was fun, friendly, and wanted us to stay as long as we liked. A homey evening with good friends, with excellent fresh food. Perfect evening out.

This was a repeat visit for us. Where service was poor previously, this time it was fine. Squash soup and salad appetizers were both excellent. 1/2 roast chicken also fine. Halibut special was dry and badly overcooked. Coffee fine. Overall worth a repeat visit.

The wait staff is exceptional, never intruding but always available, and the food is exceptional. The selection of a few items is made difficult given the excellent options available to choose. Taking the time to make your selection is made easier by enjoying their wonderful fresh baked home-made pop-overs and excellent fresh fruit jams and enjoy a cup of the french pressed coffees.

I return to this eatery again and again for a lunch get together, it is a small size restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere and whose staff are friendly and accommodating. Food is comsistant, often dietary requests or preferences are accomodated. Each person that I have taken here has enjoyed it was well, fro. My elderly mom to my girlfriends for a proper lunch get together or a taking a friend out for a birthday lunch.

Pleasant, and repeatable....
