The food was memorable, the ambiance was mellow and comfortable, we could converse easily, service was friendly and attentive, and the drinks were substantial and well-made. The meal was delicious. Appetizers and soups were delicious, especially the goat cheese with almonds, pear, and roasted garlic and the corn chowder. The chef-owner Salah prepared dishes with prime meats and fish and local fresh produce in exquisite sauces. I had a wonderful tuna with salsa made with peaches picked that morning. Others in our group had rack of lamb perfectly done, chicken Francaise, and pasta with grilled vegetables. Everyone was delighted with their choices, and we thoroughly enjoyed the bread pudding and the classic creme brûlée (presented with a candle to the 87 year old birthday celebrant). Altogether a wonderful meal that anticipates our frequent return.

Had dinner Sunday evening with two friends from the area. We all enjoyed our meals - chicken Parmesan, duck breast with blueberry sauce and tuna with peach salsa. The au gratin potatoes accompanying the duck and tuna were absolutely sublime. We shared a chocolate mousse for dessert which was rich dark chocolate served with strawberries and whipped cream. In all the meal was very nice and reasonably priced.

Great food...excellent service.
All at an unbelievably low cost. Was recommended by the innkeeper of the Blue Willow B&B.Other guests went elsewhere the first night, but were dissapointed and switched to Friends & family and were delighted.

Homey feel and flavors. Food is consistently good. Country setting with tasty local fare. We just moved to the area, and have already been there multiple times. There are always new special dishes so it never grows old. We have had a number of the pasta specials, and the burger and all were delicious. I highly recommend.

Betty, I feel compelled to respond to your review. My family has been eating at F&F for over nine years. It is unfortunate you did not have a great experience, as I think this is one best restaurants in the Hudson Valley. What is so disturbing about your review is that even after you accepted 4 free desserts as well as a comp'd entree, you felt compelled to write such a nasty review. If the meal was truly as bad as you described, why accept anything for free? If this had been a legitimate gripe, you should have gotten up and left. It seems you were just looking for a free evening out for your entire party. Not nice, quite mean.
