    Service and ambience were fine. The food was mediocre, at best. There was nothing on the plates and in the cups or bowls that could not be easily replicated from a simple home meal. The food aspect was on the disappointing side.

    Very nice ambiance. Also like the fact that the restaurant is farm to table. Seemed a bit understaffed as out waiter was serving the entire room we were in, but I have to say he did an admirable job. Just seemed a little harried. The food was excellent but pricey.

    Beautiful day on the patio. Our server was excellent considering she was the only server on the patio. She was prompt and attentive to all her tables. The food was delicious but the portion size for the price in my entree was disappointing. I got the grill Caesar Salad with an add if salmon. One small stalk of lettuce and a $14 add on of salmon that was half portion. I do understand that everything has sone up in price, but to shrink portions too….disappointing. Next time I will order something else.

    The food was exceptional even though the menu was unfocused covering multiple styles. As for the appetizer’s, the pretzels being lite and tasty and the baba ganoosh being flavorful (although it should have been served warm not cool). The bread basket was outstanding with a variety of breads that offered texture and flavor differences that complemented the eclectic menu. The strip steak entree was ok but not served with the expected crust. The duck confit was rich and flavorful. The crab cake was light and airy. The mash potato side dish was so-so as the potatoes were too heavy and not hot, the aild mushrooms seemed to be only portobellos and were cooked perfectly but the serving was quite small. As for dessert, the lavender creme brulee was exquisite.. the flavor was rich with lavender undertones and the crust was burnt perfectly. The service was wonderful and added nicely to the dining experience. Chef Abu shows his creativity with his adventurous approach to food preparation, trying different flavors combinations and presentations. The pastry chef is truly outstanding blending lightness, flavor and texture. We will be going back soon.

    We met up with friends for a catchup dinner. The signage is not real clear as to where the restaurant is located. Nothing indicates it is in the hotel. We were greeted by a very pleasant young woman and seated quickly. It took about 10 minutes for someone to come to our table to welcome us. Once they did, they told us they would bring us water and did not take our drink order until the third visit. The whole interaction with our server felt disjointed and spanned a long time between. All of our meals were correct but delivered to the wrong person. The food was outstanding, so the kitchen was working well. I'm wondering if they were overwhelmed because of the wedding that was taking place. We will try them again and hope they are able to find more staff.

    Casual anniversary dinner. Ordered Coq au vin, grilled calamari, wedge salad, haddock special. Calamari and salad were good. The chicken and fish were very overdone and lacked any real flavor. On the whole, food was ok but underwhelming. Service was ok when the waitress showed up which was far too infrequent. Seems to be the case at most places these days….. We had no silverware when entrees arrived so had to get up and snag them from a nearby table. Not a place we will return to anytime soon. Sorry, you are barely adequate.

    Party of three, two starters, three entrees and three desserts. Mushroom flatbread was heavenly, as was the grilled octopus. Innovative pork chop, done to perfection with great spices and sauce. Papparadella with mushrooms delightful. Shrimp salad was creative and delicious. Bread pudding won the best dessert award. Citron tart was much too sweet for the table's taste. Gelato authentic and a rewarding finish. Room was rather noisy, very hard to have a conversation. The wine list was impressive and fairly priced with enough choices for everyone from novice to wine snob! The service was flawless.

    We had the best time eating dinner at The Farmer's Daughter. We were heading there to celebrate our one year countdown until our wedding at the Belle of Blue Bell. Our guests will be staying at Normandy and we will be having our rehearsal at Farmer's Daughter. The food was delicious and the drinks were great too. Andrew really helped make the evening special by providing us with champagne to celebrate. We will be returning for years to come.

    My wife and I decided to try a new place for a date nite. We landed at the Farmers Daughter. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated shortly after. Andrew was our waiter and was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. My wife had the short ribs and I had the Elk chops. Both were excellent. We would definitely recommend the restaurant. The only hitch was a couple with a 2 and 4 year old that werent well behaved. Glad they were not seated close.

    Our server Kelly was very nice and attentive, so this bad review is of no reflection of her service. Food was far from good. Grilled calamari had too much filler of canned beans and banana peppers. Not sure why they added that to the dish, if anything is looked like they were trying to skimp on the calamari, which they obviously did. I got the salmon and it was so over cooked I only two bites. Everything was either over cooked or not seasoned enough. I was shocked bc the online reviews were very high. After telling a good amount of friends where we ate, they all mentioned they had the same experience there and that the food is very sub par. Maybe the reviews are fake?
