Amazingly Fresh Food

WOW! This place is amazing. They have a fresh daily menu with different dietary options. The hot n spicy shrimp and scallop soup was to die for. Also, the Mixed Grill was a LOT of food! I wasn't very impressed with the steak they serve on the dish but the shrimp was very tasty. My favorite thing... read more

Food and service very good, but have lost the magic of smaller location across the street. Some tables, especially for 2, are very awkwardly placed and not comfortable. This should be easily solved as there appears to be room to more strategically lay out tables for more ambiance.

The atmosphere was great and it is in a very neat location. The food was very good too. The only bad this is that the service was bad, really bad. I understand that this is a farm to table restaurant but the amount of time it took for our food to come out, it was like they were picking all... More

We appreciated the ability to accommodate a table of six on less than 24 hr notice during the holiday season. As others have commented, it was quite loud during the peak dining hours - sadly that is a problem with most restaurants we have tried around here. Menu departs from the typical for this area, offering stir fry and lo... More

The traffic was horrible, so my hubby and I decided to take back roads through Wilton to Stamford. When we came to New Canaan I said, why not having dinner here. After checkijg the app AroundMe, we decided to check out Farmer's Table. The place is small, but busy. We ordered a soup of the day, which was butternut squash... More

My husband and I went here on a Friday night and got super lucky! Called for reservations and there was no room, but walked in and asked and they were kind enough to accommodate us. Service was great. The open kitchen is a fun feature. The menu is not huge but it was easy to find food we wanted, especially... More

We were hoping to see a little expanse in the offerings with the move. Unfortunately, if you're only partial to 2 or 3 items on the menu, that's what you're going to eat each visit. The chef really needs to add a few new items and eliminate some old ones to make the visit a better experience. It seems like... More

It's all about the produce. Fresh as anything and tasty to boot. Never had a bad meal here and don't think I ever will. Plan to be back when I'm in town next month. Until then!

This iteration is a larger version of the restaurant that had been across the street before. It is now easier to get a reservation. Food is all fresh with sourcing from the chef's family's farm. There are always specials. We have always liked the fresh tomatoes and mushroom dishes when available, There is always pork , fish and beef available.... More

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!
