Great restaurant in New Canaan

Had dinner at Farmer's Table with my husband. The service was attentive but not intrusive and the food was fabulous. Everything was fresh and tasty, but we especially loved the beet salad and the halibut special. Will be there again...soon!

We really liked the mushroom and cheese appetizer and the lentil and quinoa salad. Both were exception. The chicken enchiladas were very good. The service was quietly excellent.

Such a nice place. It's peaceful, open, great service and food. I love the vegetable salad. It's a go-to place for a relaxing and delicious meal.

Had a good meal but for two main courses, no drinks or dessert and sharing a salad, $85 seems a little steep. We were there on a Tuesday with people sitting outside so the noise level was fine. When everyone is inside, it gets very loud.

Never a disappointing experience when dining here! The warm welcome, the local feel and fresh food keeps my family coming back. Freshly baked bread (yes, baked on the premises) a lovely wine list and daily dinner specials that are out of this world, I could eat there five nights a week! Farm to table is the key and the freshness... More

Very tasty (I had a garden salad & an excellent Pork Chop). Good wine and beer collection. I've consistently heard good things about Farmer's Table. A little overpriced. My only 'knock' is that it's quite noisy, hard to have a conversation across the table, and last night was very hot inside the restaurant. Perhaps, it would have been more pleasant... More

This understated restaurant was a pleasure to dine in for my birthday with a friend. The young waiter highly recommended the shrimp tacos when asked, and I was not disappointed one single bit! Paired with a lovely salad, I inhaled the a delicious meal. The ambiance is relaxing in that it is a spacious layout without excessive background noise. A... More

This is my new favorite place to eat for seafood in Fairfield County. The mojo sauce (garlic and lime) on the sea bass (thanks to sever Julie for recommending) and the shrimp with mojo sauce are great dishes. Love the casual vibe and open kitchen (where all the chefs are smiling). The best table is the window table next to... More
