The service was great, the food was outstanding. We had the tuna tartare and fish tacos to start, then steak and halibut for dinner. Ah-maxing all around. I am kicking myself for waiting this long to go there, but we will become regulars very quickly!!

Since the farmhouse has opened I had firsthand experience working there and watching the love that eluded from Dora and Gabriel’s eyes. I am always taken care of when I come back home and is always the first place that I come to upon my return. It is an honor to call the farmhouse home too.

We escaped our lockdown for a wonderful meal served at Farmhouse. Social distanced, masked, plexi-glass partitions, and a quiet dining room. It is possible to safely dine out and enjoy some great food and support our local restaurants. Looking forward to 2021 when the ambiance will allow more diners and maskless servers.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. It is just comfortable, with amazing/unique dishes, and very knowledgeable/attentive staff. In dealing with COVID, they have gone above and beyond to make everyone comfortable there.

Highly recommended. Kimberly waited on us and made our night very enjoyable.

The Farmhouse in my opinion is one of the best restaurants in the area. The food is outstanding and the short rib is likely the best on the menu but to be honest I’ve never had a bad meal there.

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.

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.
