    It’s a nice place and we love it but believe they haven’t changed their relatively limited menu in several years.

    The food and service were excellent. I highly recommend the tuna-avocado mousse as an appetizer and the scallops for the main, as well as the delicious beers and cocktails. It's nice to be able to eat on the patio, which is lovely, except that if you face one way, you see a dumpster and parking lot, but the food and friendly atmosphere makes you quickly forget that. The service was *incredible*! We never needed anything: the server was always ready to help and the food came quickly--super impressive. They really have it together over there! It was a delicious meal, especially for a date night or nice outing with friends. Highly recommend!

    It's been a while since we dined at Farm House. We were reminded how much we missed! While we ate inside, the new outdoor seating looks fabulous, regardless of COVID.

    Our server was great (knew the wine very well) but we had to track this person down to get our check and also to pay. All servers were very busy so we understood. For us it was not a big deal but something to note at your end. we had a terrific evening!

    This is a wonderful restaurant and highly recommend it. The menu offers many creative choices, which were filled with rush ingredients and very nicely put together. The Service is marvelous and friendly, and relaxed and comfortable. We’ve been here twice now, and plan to return often because it is so enjoyable.

    Improvements to the outdoor seating area are very nice and we really enjoyed being outdoors. The only negative was the occasional waft from the nearby dumpster!

    Good service, good wine list, glass/bottle, full bar and bar seating for dinner. Fresh ingredients, the halibut was very fresh. Dessert is limited to two items, which was a bit disappointing. They only serve espresso, no coffee/tea. But it was a very nice dining experience.

    Ordered shared burrata peach salad. Not split in kitchen and quite awkward for us as diners to do at table. Bread charge=$1/small slice. Food tasty. Servers did well despite covering so many tables. Liked being able to reserve outside table. Not sure of value. Would not be my first choice to come again.

    WE had a wonderful experience. We rang ahead and changed our time by 45 minutes earlier than booked. WE had 3 wonderful servers come to the table. Riceen was super as she was the Waitress . food delicious, hot and sufficient portions . there was a busy but natural flow of great staff and guests on the floor. IT was a treat to go out to dine and tick on the outstanding boxes . We Will recommend the restaurant to friends and Neighbours as I live in the neighboring town. Thank you

    Our table was right inside the door so lots of shuffling as people came in and out. We had finished our food by the time the drinks arrived even though we ordered them when we ordered the food. The sauce on the chicken was bitter. There was a taste of glass cleaner from the water even after we asked for new glasses and water. The waiter was great but he had too many tables and there did not seem to be a designated bar person to help fill the drinks order.

    Food was delicious and the outdoor patio is great. Lots of space and totally shielded from the road by the restaurant itself. Only downside was lack of service (maybe they were short-staffed?) Took almost half an hour to be asked for drinks. After main course was never asked about desserts.
