Always a special treat when I visit Englewood, fresh and seasoned with attention to details. I prefer outside seating watching the clouds and water in the creek.

Not sure what the hype is all about. (Aside from there is not a lot of higher end restaurants in Englewood so they possibly think they don't need to try.) First of all.....aside from our server, who was wonderful, the majority of their staff walked around looking miserable. Seriously....no eye contact, very few smiles....from the hostesses (yes plural) not one... More

It was very busy when we arrived, but were seated within 15 minutes. I ordered turkey over sourdough bread covered with cheddar cheese. If you like cheese this is dish for you.

I ordered my meal from their gluten free selections, even telling the waiter I needed their gluten free version. I even ordered gluten free vodka. That was last night, I have been sick all day. It was apparent that they are less than careful with their preparation. Beware and avoid this restaurant if you have gluten sensitivity.

I really like this place, so do a lot of others. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I have not had a bad meal here, I keep trying different items and am always happy with my choice. My last dining companion had a hamburger and said it was the best she had had in ages. Will definitely try next time... More

We enjoy Farlow's every time we go and I especially like their fried grouper sandwich. But if you want a grouper sandwich be sure to visit at lunchtime. It's not on the dinner menu.

This place has it all. Great food. I had the shrimp & cheese grits and my wife had the stuffed scallops topped with Asiago cheese. We had a guest with us who has severe nut & nut oil allergies and the wait staff went above & beyond to make sure every item was free of any allergens for him. We... More

We have not been in this area for four years. Previously we had eaten here several times and enjoyed very good meals. We returned to find it newly renovated and expanded. Nice new deck overlooking the water and very good food and service. Returned again for more of the good food and service.

Our travelling party of four just visited Farlow's for the first time with friends who said it had been their favorite restaurant since moving to Venice eight years ago. The menu is really varied, with creative offerings you just will not find everywhere. I ordered the Caribbean Seafood Delight on the recommendation of my local host, and it was outstanding.... More
