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.
