My MTO egg white omelette was well, runny - I would’ve expected much better for the establishment and what I was paying.
The “tuxedo mini cakes” seemed to be “off” so my husband kindly informed the waitress. I witnessed a chef bounce right up after someone informed him of something and watched him take a piece of said cake then seek out the waitress and knew this was in regard to my husband’s comment. The chef informed us that my husband was correct in that it wasn’t “tuxedo cake” it was mislabeled and what tasted “off” was actually a Guinness beer infused layer in a different kind of cake. Whew! Good to know! I was extremely impressed that the waitress cared enough to inform someone of my husband’s concern for the cake being perhaps sour in some way and she made sure his concern was noted immediately and the chef promptly took action. It was nice to see when so often people’s concerns are dismissed.
The chef informed us that the labels would be corrected!
When we went to leave, we noticed that the labels were switched but the trays had been moved so the labels still were incorrect, I simply moved the labels so they were with the proper food items assuring no one else had the same experience!
Loud conversations from other patrons distracted from our lunch
Delicious food, excellent service
My husband and I went for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Our waitress, Lindsey, was awesome and made some great recommendations for us. It was probably the best filet mignon I’ve ever had and was cooked perfectly.
Food was great and atmosphere is nice.
The salmon with bacon and avocado sandwich is delicious! Add the sweet potato fries for an added boost of flavor. So good!!
The Farmer’s Daughter was a fantastic fine dining experience! The restaurant is a very classy event venue so don’t be surprised to see a wedding party or (insert your large fancy event). The meals were prepared by expert kitchen talent and the wait staff was exceptional. We will absolutely dine here again.
Service was attentive, food was excellent!
Duck was perfectly cooked as well as my wife’s steak.
Noise level was moderate. Definitely will go back
Service was excellent. Andrew was very attentive. The food unfortunately fell short of our expectations. We had the grilled octopus which tasted oily and chewy without much flavor. We then had the braised short rib with mashed potatoes, which was served luke warm. It’s disappointing when your meal isn’t served hot. The short rib was ok, but not “melt in your mouth” good. The mashed potatoes had little flavor, really not rich or buttery at all. We also had the lamb flatbread, again served Luke warm and tasted very “gamey”. So much potential at this cute spot, but unfortunately the food wasn’t executed well.
Food was good, but over priced. Service was also good, but the food took a long time to come out.
We sat outside in a Friday night and it was lovely. Waterfall and then fire pit came on at dusk.
Food was delicious and drinks refreshing.
Scallops were delicious as well as the salmon and crab cakes.
Don’t miss dessert
Awesome food and drinks. Great service by Megan! Can’t wait to return!
Excellent in all categories. Would recommend to everyone. Will go again when I go out to see my relatives.
Food was abundant and delicious. Service was great. Atmosphere was nice. We plan on treating our children and grandchildren to the brunch.
Waiter was wonderful, cocktails were excellent, and the food was good but not great. Took a very long time for each course to come out. For the price & the wait, we expected better. I’d recommend against the pork, it was very dry.
Lovely indoor and outdoor space as well as delicious food.
I ordered the Normandy salad with shrimp for $22. You got three large shrimp and a bed of mixed greens. Very few other vegetables and the shrimp were not the extra large gulf shrimp you'd expect for that price. Very overpriced for a salad compared to what you get. I'm willing to pay more if the value and quality are there and it was not with this salad. At that price, the salad should at least had more vegetables or have been slightly cheaper. There was nothing that set it apart from other restaurants who charge between $15-$18 for a salad with shrimp so the price just wasn't justified. Very disappointed. Atmosphere is really nice if you like a rustic motif.
Brunch was great, staff was amazing. Was so great to be able to go back after a year and a half.
Excellent choices for a gluten-free eater. Beautiful presentation. Delicious meal. Service is excellent. Looking forward to next time!
Great food and service. Good value. I would highly recommend
First time there. Excellent service and food. Manager comped our desert as first timers.
This is an amazing restaurant, and they seem to have overcome the shortage of good help issue in the Phila. area -- our waiter was wonderful and quite knowledgeable. Food is excellent -- farm to table and very fresh, and the chef definitely rocks. Highly recommend.
Great place to have a quiet meal
The food quality, atmosphere, and service were great.
Great restaurant with friendly staff, delicious food
This was my fist visit . I was disappointed. I expected fine dining; it was ok/good but not fine dining. I had duck which I sent back because it was tough and chewey. Taste ok but not great. They cooked it a little more and it was better. Service by wait staff was fine, no complaints, very friendly. Management staff very attentive; excellent. This restaurant is dark.
A most pleasant experience from the food to the atmosphere to the service. The hostess
So graciously accommodated us when an unexpected guest joined us.
Excellent lunch! Food, service and atmosphere were excellent! We had the Vegetable Panini and Sea Bass Taco Special!. Highly recommend!
Food very good, but private club vibe.
Excellent food and service…our anniversary so we shared a free dessert
I love Prime rib and they serve the best. The omelets are outstanding. I usually don't eat desert at a brunch, but Normandy serves the best chocolate strawberries I have ever had.
Consistently good food, awesome outdoor patio, fire pit, water falls. Nice cocktail menu.
Had a wonderful lunch with friends yesterday. The menu appealed to everyone and the portions and value were perfect.
Service was a little slow but we weren’t in a rush so we were able to roll with it.
A lovely location but food was somewhat flavorless but beautiful to look at. Cocktails are wonderful :-)
We were away for a softball tournament and happens to be my daughter’s B’day… we look for something with a nice ambiance… we were sooo pleased w this place it was really Cousy ambiance and great food!!! We will come back to it!
Love the decor. Great food. Excellent service. Will definitely be back!
Overall a disappointing experience. Everything about this restaurant is dated, from the decor to the menu. The charcuterie plate was mostly bread with each cheese so small, two bites maximum. The scallop entree was good with a nice vegetable purée and caramelized ciopollini onions.
The cocktails were great.
My steak was a little underdone.
The cheese board, while was a large size, the cheeses were nothing particular special
The desserts were fabulous.
Service was good.
I’m door Ambience was adequate for a hotel restaurant.
Considering the lack of great restaurants around the area this is pretty good. It certainly is not like a steak house meal. But it was a pleasant time.
Very average hotel restaurant. A little disappointed, was expecting better. My pork medallions especially disappointing, came out like leather, unfortunately well over cooked.
Creative ingredients, especially vegetarian options. Everything was fresh and delicious. Seasonal cocktails and great beer selection. Service was timely but not rushed.
