“Excellent food but service was slow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

A friend and I stopped in for lunch on a Tuesday. We had a 1:30 reservation and on a friends recommendation we requested a certain table. We were promptly seated at our table. The server greated us within 5 minutes with water. She came back about 10 min later to take our order. We both ordered the soup of the day which was minestrone and the crab cakes.
We waitied 40 minutes for our soup and the place was not crowded at all. After we finished our soup which was very good but richer and not a typical 'tomatoey' minestrone, we waited another 15 minutes for the bowls to be cleared. About 10 minutes after that our crab cakes arrived.
Now these were worth the wait!! They were crunchy on the outside and loaded with crab on the inside, just totally delightful. The salad along side with mixed greens, pickled onion and light dressing was nice too. I would have given this 5 stars if it didn't take 90 minutes for lunch.

“Recommened to us.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

The dining room wasn't open so they only had the pub menu. We were already there so why not try it? I'm 64 yrs. old and although it may sound silly it was the best pizza I ever had. My wife had the tortilla soup and cheese corn muffin which she said were delicious. Highly recommend.

“Good Not Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

This was my fourth time dining at Farm Table. I want to love this place, it's a nice drive to get there and fun to shop a bit before after eating and the food is good. I especially love the outdoor fireplace in the colder months. So why don't I love it? Simply, the noise level even when not completely full is so loud we were forced to choose between shouting or only talking to the person next to us. That is just not an enjoyable experience and it's happened on both a Friday night and a Saturday lunch so it wasn't just a random experience. Not sure how you fix this but this is not a restaurant to chose if you want conversation or an intimate dining experience.

“Wow! Fabulous meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

If you can get by the schmaltzy piped in music in the parking lot, the dining experience inside the Farm Table restaurant is a real treat. I had the Mushroom Tagliatelle, which had an explosion of flavor and was expertly prepared and presented. Our help was efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable. The atmosphere inside was wonderful with authentic reproduction of rural New England. Loved this meal!
