For the price of the meal, you would expect more than one server working the entire restaurant on a busy Thursday night. Not the case at Farmstead, where only one waitress provided service to the entire restaurant. The results of understaffing were as expected -...More

There were 4 of us and we shared a selection of appetizers and small plates. All were good - the highlights were Tomato toast with burrata, Peruvian style oysters, and Sweet corn dumplings. The seating was a bit cramped but the atmosphere was good -...More

This is a neighborhood gem, for sure! I have eaten breakfast/brunch here a couple of times and thought the food was delicious, but just recently ate dinner there, and can't say enough about the meal! The "tomato toast" is so good, you will want to...More

Five of us had dinner on a week night. The food was fabulous, particularly the fish tacos and the tortellini soup. It was quiet so we were able to have our conversations with out yelling. The service was attentive, but not overbearing. Highly recommended.

Who doesn't embrace farm-to-table? But, I just don't think Farmstead Table is that outstanding at the concept. I've tried it a couple of times and walked away thinking "meh." The service is iffy and the atmosphere, too.

Had a delicious lunch here on two occasions. The food was fresh and creative. The service and atmosphere were warm and friendly. Nice place to meet a friend for lunch.

Was a bit disappointed considering some of the excellent reviews. The fried cauliflower and burrata are quite good but the Wagyu burgers were only so-so and at $19 each overpriced. Halibut and salmon are very good, the rhubarb pie dessert not so much. The best...More

There is much to like about Farmstead's changing menu - the focus on locally-sourced foods is excellent and the cuisine preparation quite delicious. We were drawn to eat there by the mention of morels, but sadly our chosen selection had many mushroom varieties but was...More
