Very good dining option before attending the theater. Courteous service, good wine and food.
We frequent this restaurant. It is consistently excellent.
Good food, good ambiance, good service. My only complaint is that it's a tad pricey. The onion soup was a good value but the vegetarian chili was around $15, which I thought was high.
Way to expensive for the meal I received
Lovely atmosphere, delicious food and eccellent service make The Farmhouse Bistro a treat. Although connected to People's Light theater, you don't have to attend the theater to enjoy an excellent meal here.
Meal was 3 course fro $40 - soup was great, entree's vegetables were unevenly cooked- carrots were raw while potatoes were soft- dessert was a mediocre lime cheesecake- overall, not a great value
Had an excellent experience. Even though we came in very late, the waiter and chef waited for us, made sure that we had a wonderful time and food.
No show so we were the only table. Great service and food and enjoyed our own private night. Thanks for staying open!
Dinner and the theater are always a great night out, and this was no exception. There were seven of us, and we ordered just about everything on the menu, from 40 garlic chicken, to salmon to short ribs and a burger, and there wasn't a crumb left. Everything was well priced, and the wine list paired well with the menu. I look forward to going back.
The Farmhouse is a convenient location for a meal before a play at People's Light & Theatre. It is on the same property and within walking distance of the Leonard Haas Stage. For a performance at the Steinbright Stage, you have to drive over.
We ate in a small dining room that seated about 18. There is a second dining room where a group was having dinner. I did not see how large the room was.
The hostess was very helpful. She asked if we already had our tickets for the performance of Lights Out: Nat "King" Cole. When we told her that we had vouchers, she proceeded to call the theater and arrange to get our tickets for us. She brought them over to our table. That was a very nice touch.
The person who seated us seemed very nervous and tentative. The table we picked was wobbly. Rather than offer to find a way to stabilize the table for us, she made a gesture as if she was hoping that nothing would fall off the table.
We had one server ask for our drinks, then someone else came to the table without any explanation. Apparently there had not been a handover of the table because the new server was not aware that we had already ordered something to drink. I asked her to get something to stabilize the table which she did readily and quickly. This suggested to me that they are aware of the state of the tables. The person who sat us down should have checked on the table before she left if they know they have wobbly tables.
The food was the best part of the evening. We opted for the Prix Fixe Menu from which we had Pumpkin Asparagus Crab Bisque and Caesar Salad as the appetizers, followed by Forty Garlic Chicken and Horseradish Encrusted Salmon. For dessert, we had
Copa Marscarpone and Lemon Sorbet Ripieno. Everything was delicious. We truly enjoyed the meal.
Worst Thanksgiving dinner ever. Horrible buffet with almost no food. Server cleared away our place settings and glasses of wine when we went up for seconds. Never will I go back there!
We went to their Thanksgiving buffet. It took a long time for the wine to come and the waiter rarely came by to fill the glasses. Also, the plates were not cleared between courses. It was not very busy when we arrived. When we went to the buffet, the stuffing was about empty so was a bit cold. I went back for seconds and it was much better. The turkey was good but the sides were average. The pumpkin cheese cake was good but they had run out of both the pecan and sweet potatoe pie. They also automatically added 18% gratuity which seems high for someone to deliver a glass of wine and fill water twice.
We were there For their Thanksgiving meal, and the food was excellent! The turkey was juicy, the ham was succulent. The sweet potatoes has just the right amount of toasted marshmallow.
Our server, though, he was terrible. He came to our table 10 minutes after we sat down to take our drink order, and they didn't come until after we got back with our food.
We ran out of drinks, and we didn't see him for 10 minutes, and the only reason we saw him was that the best table over was getting their check. I asked him for more drinks, and guess what... He didn't show up again for 15 minutes! When he came again, I had to ask once more for drinks. When I went to the buffet, again, I actually talked to the person in charge of the buffet display. He said he'd talk to the head server.
The only time he ended up being quick was when he dropped off the check, and then left for 30 seconds and came right back to see if it was ready. I was really tempted to talk to a manager right then and there. It was Thanksgiving, so I paid the check, with the automatic gratuity, but you can be sure I didn't leave any more than that. If it wasn't a holiday, you can be sure I would've argued the automatic gratuity.
Had a problem with gratuity being included with bill. Know this is done with large groups but we were only two and no notice that this was done. At same time on menu it said that gratuity was included in price. Note "price", not "bill" or "check". Confusing wording and poorly handled.
The restaurant is great for atmosphere. Even better if paired with a play. That can't be beat. Service is normally pretty good, it was a bit under the norm for Thanksgiving, but still ok.
