Excellent Food and Service

All about the rabbit, the signature dish. The foie gras was superb as was the service and the wine list.

A fine dining restaurant that offers unique flavors and beautiful presentation while being casual and welcoming. I was eating alone but I had good conversations with the staff about more than just the food and wine. The desert was quite memorable.

There is some major talent in that kitchen! The chef does so much traveling to other countries and it shows in his cooking. Stellar wine list and insanely good desserts!

There is no doubt in my mind why Farmhouse is so well esteemed. My daughter and I chose the restaurant for our Christmas Eve supper and it was beyond expectations. Each course was presented with the perfect wine accompaniment for me, and with non-alcoholic beverages for my daughter from Nectary. In both cases, we were pleased. Chestnut tortellini…. really? Oh,... More

We haven't had such a wonderful meal in years - every one of the 4 courses was delightful. The sommelier was excellent - we would certainly recommend the food-wine pairing. Very relaxed and warm atmosphere. Everything was perfect. It was very cozy on a cold rainy night.

We had high expectations for our Farmhouse Thanksgiving celebration but left with a low level of satisfaction. Our fireplace table was splendid; however, shortly after sitting down we were asked for our meal selections. Even after asking for more time we were soon asked again. We felt pushed and did not have the pleasure to study and discuss the menu... More

We were guests of the Inn who knew we were on our honeymoon, so the restaurant customized the menu with our names at the top, and packaged it along with the names of our wine pairings as a keepsake. So personal and delicious from beginning to end.

In an inn setting on the main east-west drag in the Russian River Valley, this little restaurant is a bit hard to find. but when you do, it is SO worth it. Although we managed to screw up our reservations on an otherwise fully booked evening, the staff was wonderfully accommodating and found us a table in the working bar... More

We drove from Sonoma. It took an hour but it was worth it. The restaurant is small and charming. Although we called ahead about dress, we were too casual in jeans and they seated us in the back room. The menu is prefix. We wanted three appetizers and three desserts and they allowed us the flexibility through the 4 course... More
