The Farmhouse Ratings and Reviews
We have eaten here before, during barrielicious. I made a reservation for myself and my wife for Valentines day, there was only a 9pm reservation left so I accepted. Upon arrival we were placed in the downstairs area by the bar, my wife requested to be placed upstairs as it is a much different atmosphere upstairs, we were advised that they had already closed the upstairs for the night. The downstairs is more pub then romantic dining that we were looking for... especially valentines day.... the food was great, a little overpriced but good.
The food at the farmhouse is great. It is seasonal delicious and healthy (for the most part). However, this is not the place to go for fine dining or a date. It is much more casual than we thought based on the entree prices ($42 for a steak), the fact that they do weddings, and the fancy building. Great place for brunch or a nice lunch, but not a special dinner. If they had put down some linen table cloths and some candles it could easily transition to fine dining with a only a small tweak to the dinner menu (no fries or burgers). I guess we had expected something different.
Had a great experience with my husband for date night without the kids. I had the Bacon & Beer Glazed Pork loin with apple slaw, romaine salad & 3 cheese bacon butter baked potato. Best apple slaw I’ve ever had!!! Hubby had requested no mushrooms/onions on his beef dip but when it came with them on it, Chris was quick to have it fixed!! Friendly & attentive service. Will definitely return!!
I was really impressed the pady called back to confirm reservation and asked if we had any concerns with food i did mention my husband was diabetic and no sugar in food
And my dinner was absoiltely exactly the way i wanted it i asked for well done steak and it was awesome
Definetly coming back
Price was reasonable also
We really enjoyed our visit to The Farm House, everything was lovely, the food was fantastic! We look forward to coming back real soon! I have to say our service was wonderful, I just wish I knew her name to tell you, she was so sweet, upbeat and attentive!
Honestly, it's decent pub fare, without any frills. Ribs had gobs of overly acidic sauce poured on them but not cooked in. Chicken avocado club was not really a club--in a cotonny raw sesame bun, not toasted, and not multilayered. Potato skins could have used some sour cream. Best thing was the mac and cheese.
I have not been to the Farmhouse in a few years but remember it as preparing wonderful meals. I decided to go out Christmas day instead of cooking. It was very disappointing. The salad was made with a bitter green (arugula?) as the only green which may suit some but was not pleasant for me. The mashed potatoes were pasty, the turkey was mainly dark meat and loaded in a gravy which I did not like. There were a small amount of vegetables that were glazed and tasted more of glaze than veggie. They had said on the phone that the dessert was apple pie but it was pumpkin pie and tasted store bought. I enjoyed the soup and cranberry dressing (and the service). My friends tell me they make a wonderful breakfast. Maybe I will try it. It would be hard to pull me back there for supper.
I love the farmhouse for the most part
Was really disappointed that there was only 1 choice for Xmas dinner. No apps no mains no desserts just what they picked as a standard meal. The portions were rather tiny.
Other years the entire menu was available.
I actually confirmed while menu availability before making my reservation
I wish I was informed prior to being seated.
The Christmas dinner was over priced. You should have had a choice of garlic mashed or plain. I don't care for garlic mashed. Food was served on cold plates so your dinner was cold when you received it. The parking lot and walk way we're not plowed or shovelled. It made it difficult for elder people to get to the door. It was also cold with the ceiling fans going.
The restaurant was busy, I’ll give them that much, but it didn’t seem like anything was working out that evening.
It started with being seated at the bar while we waited for our table and it taking ten minutes for a bartender to even acknowledge us/take our drink orders. Shortly afterwards our table was ready and instead of asking if we wanted to transfer the drink to our table bill we were asked to settle up the 9 dollar tab.
We were seated at the table without menus for about 15 minutes. Once the server realized this it was quickly fixed and our food ordered and our apetizer came out in good time. It then took over an hour for our server to notice that our mains had not been brought to our table. The kitchen lost our chit and it took a total of an hour and a half to get our main course and then when we did get it they had run out of the sides we ordered so we had to wait to get our replacement sides.
During this wait we saw tables sending back their entrees multiple times because meals were coming out cold or not cooked properly.
The manager found us after we paid our bill to tell us that he wanted to give us complimentary desserts and a percentage off our bill. The gesture was nice, albeit late.
All in all we were so let down we couldn’t even enjoy our food (which was pretty good).
Not sure if we will be back despite the offer of a discounted meal for our next visit.
My friend and I had a pleasant lunch at the Farmhouse. The service was attentive and yet they allowed us to converse uninterrupted. I had the Beef Dip sandwich. I wasn't fond of the taste of the beef nor the dip, but the french fries and caesar salad were both excellent and my friend enjoyed all of her lunch. The atmosphere was so much nicer than your run-of-the-mill chain restaurant.
