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.

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.

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.
