    Overall, dinner was a fine dining experience. It was so nice to see tablecloths again. We ordered a couple of the specialty cocktails. They were priced at $17. One of them was too sour to drink! Our server brought over some simple syrup to make it palatable. My cocktail was delicious but a bit skimpy. Bad price point. If I ordered another it would have equaled the price of my entree which was the most expensive on the menu. We ordered Maine Halibut entrees and it was divine! I’ll go back and recommend to friends but I’ll warn them about the drink prices.

    This was a delightful treat on a hot summers night. After a rough start ( seated next to the adjoining restaurant’s live band which was unbearably loud) we got moved to a quieter corner on the patio. The apps were delicious (try the tuna tartar) , the fish taco fresh and flavorful, the drinks wonderful and the staff really accommodating and attentive. We LOVED it.

    This is my fourth or fifth time to the Farmhouse Restaurant. And it is the fourth or fifth time that I have been extremely happy with the service and the food. I had the risotto which was outstanding and my husband had the fish tacos. Excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant👍👍

    As always, The Farmhouse doesn’t disappoint. The salad and calamari were very good and the short ribs were excellent. The server was very friendly and responsive. He knew that we weren’t in a rush, so he didn’t rush us, and yet he was always there when we needed him. The cocktails were also delicious.

    We reserved a table on the patio, which was quiet and shaded. We had fish tacos and carnitas tacos, a crab cake with greens appetizer and shared a brownie with ice cream for dessert. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, and the waiter was terrific. It was an enjoyable experience and we plan to go back.

    Waitress barely spoke. Our first time to the restaurant and no introduction or rundown was given. No recommendations, even when asked. Drinks, apps, dinner, all done in an hour. Felt very rushed. Took more time to get ready than I was actually out to dinner. Disappointing experience. Wouldn’t come back.

    The food is always good here, but last night the air conditioning was either not working or they did not turn it on sufficiently. It was unbearably hot. Asking for more air did not seem to help.

    Very disappointed! Asked for blie cheese or goat cheese stuffed olives to accompany our drink orders and received a rude no. Given that we frequently patronize the restaurant it is disappointing not to go out of your way for clients. The food at Buttercup and the service, attitude and professionalism is much better.

    The halibut entree was amazing. Portion size was just right. Would have liked a little more green/colored veggies. Neutral fish + neutral butter sauce + neutral potatoes on a white plate … you can do better!

    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!

    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.
