I love this restaurant! It's a local gem. The food is amazing, the wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They had a seafood special this week in parchment that was delicious. Plus nicely distanced outdoor tables, and heaters. It's wonderful!

Food is consistently amazing- hot and tasty. We sat outside- heaters weren't very strong but it was mild enough. Service was also fantastic

Date night! Probably the last nice weather for outdoor seating and our first time there.
They were short staffed and yet the service was delightful and the food was excellent. I have celiac and our waitress was on top of that with the kitchen so I felt confident and I was not disappointed. I had the halibut and it was perfectly cooked and beautifully seasoned. My date had a beat salad that was delicious and the short rib on pappardelle and he thought it was outstanding.
We enjoyed our very well crafted cocktails and we shared butterscotch pudding for dessert and the bill was reasonable for such a good meal.

Calamari coating fell right off and was slightly undercooked. Scallops were perfect!

You won't find a better meal anyplace around. Exceptional ingredients are the base for delicious food every time we go (which is pretty frequently). The outdoor patio is warm and inviting.

You've done a great job with the outdoor seating. What we found is that everything seemed to take a long time. Our waiter took awhile to check in initially. Then it took a while for our drinks to come. Once we ordered our meal, that came quickly. In fact as they took away the app plates, the dinner was there (that's not a complaint). What bothered us, was that as we were sitting and chatting the waiter came over to tell us that the next party for our table was here. I commented that I didn't realize that we had a time limit. The waiter then informed us that it was on the reservation. Truth be told, I didn't read the fine print, but when I did, I saw that she was correct. That being said, a little for-warning would have been a nicer way to handle the situation. Maybe she could have come by at the 1 hr and 20 minute mark to let us know that we should think about settling up. I guess it was good that we didn't want to have coffee or dessert.

Great kitchen, wonderful staff, great selection of wines and interesting cocktails. Some of the best fish tacos you will ever have. Their butterscotch pudding (made there and just back on the menu) is unbelievable. Casual upscale dining at its finest

Price was super reasonable for being farm to table—in fact it was less than we thought we would have to pay and we got drinks and appetizers. Food was absolutely delicious.

We regularly visit Boston for medical care. The Farmhouse has become our “go-to” dinner choice. We were there on two consecutive nights. We enjoyed a friendly though socially distanced dinner both days. Also enjoyed very tasty and robust dinners of the seafood papillote and beef and veal bolognese.

We sat outside on the patio which is now equipped with large heaters. Food was excellent, service a little slow but it was quite busy. They have made a great space, comfortable seating and nice ambience.

They did not have enough space between tables. If they are going to continue indoor dinning the tables need to be at least 6 feet apart.

This was an amazing restaurant. I was traveling with a colleague in the needham area, she wanted a “nicer” dinner that didn’t break our travel budget. The place hit all the point from service, food, wine list and ambiance! We were able to sit outside on the cutest patio and enjoy a cooler fall eve. Highly recommend this restaurant. Outstanding!

Although we were late for our reservation. We were seated and had an outstanding meal.
We were told that the only tables available were two small tables right in the middle of the restaurant. I told our hostess that I would prefer to sit in the back, against the wall near the kitchen. I had eaten here on a cold winter night and found the back of the room to be a cozier, more comfortable part of the room. She was able to accommodate us and I was much happier. The food was so delicious, and the waitress very friendly and helpful. My dining partner and I split the butternut squash soup, so we still had a good appetite for our main courses - beef short ribs and halibut. I will definitely come back. We shared a decadent butterscotch pudding as well. Thank you for a great dining experience.

As we were dining during the Covid Pandemic we ate outside. Staff were very accommodating. We both started with soup which was flavorful. I had the fish while my guest had scallops. Both were very fresh and well prepared. Very enjoyable.
