I don't know what to say. The food is excellent. Two of us had the chicken, one the steak and another the salmon. Food was really well prepared. The service was ok as was the ambience. The worst part of our dinner was the karate class going on the floor above. We asked to move our table but were informed... More

Good portion and nice decent food for a family when Mom wants everyone to eat properly but you just want a night off the cooking at home. Reasonably efficient service and good customer service always.

Menu has lots of excellent healthy choices, including daily specials. We had three different dishes: chicken, salmon, shrimp. All delicious, with generous portions. A wonderful discovery, highly recommend... More

The Farmer's Table lives up to its expectations! The food was delicious, creative, and wonderful. Fresh too! I had the Shrimp Mojo which was very special. Others had the duck confit tacos, which they loved. The alcohol specials were terrific as well -- peach sangria and a vodka lemonade. We sat outside on a warm night, which was icing on... More

Went to Farmers Table for date night and they didn't disappoint. My husband had the jerk chicken and I had the salmon and both were fresh, well seasoned and perfectly cooked. In addition, the staff was friendly, professional and attentive, making it a truly great experience. We'll definitely be back!
