We selected Farmer's Daughter for Valentine's Day and were not disappinted. The food and service were top shelf. If you enjoy a good steak, try the tomahawk ribeye. Great quality and prefectly prepared; worth every penny. The roasted tomato flatbread and beet salad were also outstanding. They get an A+ from me.

Tried the new menu for our Valentine's date, a day early. Dining room was half full, so romantically quiet. The Ossa Bucco on squash/sauerkraut was delicious, and the carmelized collard greens were amazingly great. My husband loved his filet mignon. Joe's service was perfect. Looking forward to our next visit.

It began with bad oysters-old, squishy and foul tasting. Ruined the entire experience, had to settle for more mundane fare. Very very fatty prime rib, soggy fish with bland stuffing, plain peeled shrimp with no flavor, chicken parmagiana-didnt seem right. Undercooked waffles, excess of mini desserts.
I have been to this restaurant 2x before in the summer when the food was freshly prepared and quite good.
This was a big disappointment and waste of money and an embarrassment to me with my guest. You owe me $100. in restaurant voucher if we are to visit you once more.

The food here was absolutely the best I've ever had! We had a cheese board, goat cheese cigars, filet mignon (for me) and aged Tbone (for him) and the salted carmel molten lava cake. Everything tasted so awesome that I'm already trying to figure out when we can go back! Our waitress (Lauren) was very friendly and answered our many questions about the new menu(they change the menu as needed since they use local farmers). The price you pay is worth the mouth-watering food that you will experience. Put this on your list of places to eat SOON! (Reservations suggested)

A gem in the burbs... enjoy a nice dinner and save room for dessert!
While Normandy Farms is a large hotel/conference center we found the restaurant to be better than what you normally find in a hotel.

The atmosphere is warm and comfortable, the service is professional and gracious and the menu is well designed. When we walked in the aromas of the braised short ribs wafted the air. The entree selections were very appealing but we opted for small plates and the selections of sharing boards, appetizers and salads were innovative, big on flavors and beautifully presented.

We had heard that the desserts were something special and boy were they right - wow! beautiful, one of a kind pieces of art that were so flavorful and unique. We ordered one each and offered everyone a bite but after we passed once we agreed we had to pass around until they were all gone! When we tried to pick a "winner" it clearly was a draw. We'll go back even if it was a bit of a drive for us and would reco that you check them out. if you do, be sure to save room for dessert!!

This was my 2nd visit to this restaurant. The 1st time was with 3 other female friends, the 2nd visit was 2 couples. Both scenarios worked well.

The wait staff, the ambiance and the food were phenomenal! The menu has interesting and unusual offerings.

Can't wait to return!

The main dining room is very noisy, and the menu tries too hard to be different, making it difficult to find a straightforward main course. The three-glass wine flights are a nice offering.

When we arrived it was not that crowded but the server just seemed uninterested. The food took forever to come, and follow up visits, getting the check etc seemed to take a while. The food itself was very good. 20% tip was automatically added for 6 people, and the server did let us know

Outstanding food. Great service. Accommodated our being late for our reservations. BUT, microscopic portions. While we certainly don't expect to go to a gourmet restaurant and get a mound of food, when you pay $33 for a crab cake "entree" and 2 silver dollar size morsels show up, it is quite a letdown. Don't come hungry. Another alternative would be to schedule a second dinner after if you have any change left in your pockets.

We came to celebrate a special occasion— the dinner and appetizers were delicious; but the service was slow.....and servers not attentive. So much so that we asked for dessert “to go”. We ate dessert as soon as we got home but desserts were hardly edible— bread pudding was dry and tasteless and chocolate cake was a strange texture. It was a chilly night but since the restaurant in IN the hotel, i expected it to be cozy. I was cold the whole evening. I had high expectations and was a bit disappointed . Our meals - beef tenderloin and dry aged steak were very good!

As usual, The Farmer's Daughter did not disappoint. There is now cheesecake as a desert option and both pancakes and waffles. The only minor suggestion is to have Swiss as a cheese option at the omelet station.

Very nice place, nice atmosphere, great service. We thought the food was just ok. Duck rolls were greasy and not very flavorful. Ahi tuna was simple but good. NY strip and filet were both good, but my wife and I didn't eat the sides. Both came with potatoes with some type of spice, maybe nutmeg, that just didn't do it for us. Maybe just a personal preference. The bread pudding dessert wasn't bad. Not a bad meal, but for about $200 I would probably go somewhere else.

We love The Farmer's Daughter! This visit was a holiday celebration with eight old friends. The food was excellent as usual. The selections made were the halibut, the scallops, and the short ribs - all were a big hit. The drinks never disappoint. The service between Megan and Nicole made us all feel special and well tended to. The pastry chef sent out a selection of mini desserts that topped a most enjoyable evening off just right! Thanks again Farmer's Daughter for another wonderful evening.

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.
