My husband and I were fortunate to dine at the Philadelphia Farm and Fisherman before it shut it's doors. The restaurant's intimate setting and the well thought out seasonal menu contributed to a marvelous dining experience. We wait with anticipation for the next Josh Lawler small restaurant creation. This chef truly has a gift.

Another fantastic experience at Farm and Fisherman. The late dinner was amazing, as was the service and the ambiance. I love the ever-changing menu, but some of the perennial dishes are absolutely favorites, especially the beet steak!

From being greeted at the door, to my final cup of coffee, F&F byob was always great. Besides being committed to buying fresh and local, the menu has perfectly executed dishes. The noise level--unlike almost everywhere you may go--is acceptable: you may have a conversation with your guests normally, and you really can't intrude on others' conversations. I can't say enough about F&F byob.

we were so lucky to have been able to dine there before they close their doors this Sunday to focus on their other resturants! The food was fabulous and the service could not have been better...hats off to the chef and his wife who manages the front.

The food was beyond wonderful and the staff was terrific. We're so sad that they are closing, but will certainly find them wherever their new location turns out to be.

Always a wonderful meal and the menu is always an unexpected treat. As our serve said when asked if there are any specials? ..."Everything on the menu is special!"

So glad I was able to eat at The Farm and Fisherman before it closes! I took my boyfriend there for his birthday last night and it was by far our favorite farm to table restaurant in Philly.

We shared the Bloody Beet Steak for starters - very flavorful and juicy! Just a heads up this is a beet and not an actual steak :)

I got the asparagus risotto for a second course which was super rich and creamy. Then I had the chicken for my main course. The meat was super fresh and moist but I wasn't loving the cheese spätzle that it was prepared with.

We had 5 total dishes for only $100 which I think is a tremendous value for the high quality and size of the meals. And it's a BYOB so you can save money on booze!
