The Farmer's Daughter Ratings and Reviews
Normandy Farms is an historical icon of this area. Transformed into a hotel and restaurant complex, it has been modernized beyond historical recognition, but smartly done and well decorated. The dining room was properly lit with interesting but not overbearing decor, with tables placed far enough apart for a nice elegant vibe. It was quiet with most tables filled. The service was polite, and quick, never pushy. My entree was imaginative: a tasty halibut taco with a fresh fruit salsa, beautifully presented. The tacos were tasteless and limp, so I put them aside and ate the taco contents. They served us one cup of coffee at the end of the meal and didn't offer a refill. No trouble eschewing the desserts - they cost as much, or almost as much, as any entree.
Since we were friends catching up, we sat there for quite a while in comfort. I would go again with foody friends.
It was dinner for my wife's birthday. I did indicate on the reservation that it was a special occasion but nothing happened after that. No follow-up, no question about what the occasion was, nothing. Also we had very good service but as more tables with several people were seated our waittress wasn't able to get to our table. This place should have someone like a manager or staff person filling in when this happens.
This was a fun location for my one-year anniversary date with my girlfriend. The decor is probably what I liked about it most, giving it a quaint, upscale farmhouse feel. However, the music choice interfered with the potential for a quaint ambiance. Pop music was playing the whole time, which created an unnecessarily cheap feel. Overall, it was a pleasant, relaxed dining environment, with friendly, helpful service. The food was all very good. I appreciated the variety of options and original dishes, mostly in the appetizers section. I will admit that several of the dishes were described to be more sensational on the menu than they ended up being, but not deceivingly so. My final minor criticism is that the overall experience had more of a commercial feel than I would have liked. It was partially the hotel complex it was part of but things like the chairs in the dining room and the casual nature of the server contributed to that. Overall it was a worthwhile, enjoyable restaurant. I would like to go back in warmer weather when I could eat at the outdoor seating.
The selections in "What would you recommend this restaurant for" don't seem appropriate -- the food was fresh and good, the service was great, and although there were several loud and drunken weddings going on elsewhere in the complex, our party had a wonderful meal. We always look for restaurants where you can actually have a conversation while you eat, and where the food is local as much as possible, and The Farmer's Daughter fit the bill. Tapas? Waterfront? Live sports? Not in any way applicable here, and thank God for that.
Our waitress Nancy is perfectly attentive.
Not too much; not too little. The dinning room host is equally attentive and friendly.
While the variety is good, more fresh fruit and homemade muffins would be ideal. I have recommended the brunch to coworkers many times.
Wide variety of delicious entrees,and breakfast foods. From raw oysters and cooked to perfection jumbo shrimp to Eggs Benedict. There is also a turkey breast or cut of steak at the carving table. Lots of omelet varieties...and the dessert table is to die for!!!
This was a pleasurable experience. We were welcomed . The service was great. One of my friends is blind and they met her needs with grace and skill. She felt very comfortable . We all had the Chicken salad sandwich . It was very tasty . The atmosphere was nice . We were seated in an area where we could talk and hear each other. We were not rushed. All in all a pleasent experience for all.
Will return again.
The Farmers Daughter is always a good choice for dinner. This time I was with a larger group and we all enjoyed the evening and the food. Food took slightly longer than expected to make it to the table but probably because they were quite busy this evening.
This was one of the best meals I have had in a long time!!! I am a vegetarian and ordered the tofu dish and was not disappointed! Tofu was cooked to perfection! My husband had steak and loved it. We started off with a cheese plate and Pinot noir. The ingredients here are incredibly fresh. Well worth the cost! Highly recommended.
I tok ao party of 6 family members to The Farmer's Daughter for Lunch, celebrating my grand-daughter's birthday.
Service was prompt and courteous, to the point of making it possible for my wife to order
' Oysters Rockerfeller' from the lunch menu. I ordered a crab cake. The others ordered varous sandwiches.
When my wife's ysters arrived, they were tiny, and FRIED, and my crab cake was very dry, with a 'crust' on the bottom I couldn't cut through, obviously overcooked.
This was our first time at this restaurant. We couldn't have been anymore impressed. The ambiance and service was awesome. The cocktails and appetizers were delicious leading up to the most delicious dinner I have had in a very long time. It could not compare to even the most elite 5 star restaurants I have patronized and the icing on the cake is casual dress making it even more comfortable while enjoying soup to nuts. Sue
Well today We celebrated a Birthday here at the Sunday Brunch... AMAZING... is the only word for it . Everything from soup to nuts - omelette station- eggs Benedict station salad bar - every breakfast meat you can name - carving station.. the prim rib was very good - lunch meat display tons of lox... a raw bar and a dessert arrangement worthy of royalty. The breakfast cocktails were delicious and our excellent waiter Randy surprised our Mom with a special birthday treat - even singing happy Birthday to her... the atmosphere has been recently changed - its more modern- I liked the antiques and such from before but the new look is very nice as well. The atmosphere is open and roomy - the staff are very pleasant and very accommodating. A great dining experience
