Three girl friends and I went last night. Busy for a Tuesday evening. Server very knowledgeable about the wine & beer selections, menu and answered all our questions. Food was delicious and much attention paid to presentation.

I sense that this restaurant is now in chapter two or three of its existence. A year or so ago, it was The Place to go, and what seems to have happened is that it was spoiled by its own success, earning itself some some pretty bad reviews, particularly when it came to wait times and service levels. We went... More

We recently moved to the Twin Cities and were hosting a small private party of 10 other out of town guests. I suggested Bachelor Farmer since I had read good things about it, but we were sadly disappointed. My husband worked with the party planner to plan a special celebration and found her extremely arrogant and unaccomodating. When we arrived... More

Nothing average about this place! A little hard to find, but everything from the drink specials to the wine list to the menu was unique. Try the pork meatball appetizer. Everyone's entree was great. I had the poached eggs - how's that for outside the box!

Compared to other Tripadvisor reviews of this restaurant, I'm in the minority. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. When making the reservation, i mentioned that we were visiting for our anniversary. Throughout the meal, they threw in small freebees to help us celebrate - a drink, a small appetizer, etc. VERY nice of them. I had... More

I went here with coworkers for a reward dinner. We started with wonderful champagne and a few of the toast options. I liked the butternut squash mousse with apples. Then I had the duck confit and the others had the walleye. Excellent and perfectly cooked! The server added a carrot side and also brought a wonderful dark chocolate sorbet palate... More

FIRST TIP- A good stop for wine lovers and wine novices. More about that in a moment. First, let me say that there are a lot of great things going on at TBF. The atmosphere is fantastic. Its homey, but eclectic and funky in a way that keeps it down to earth. The service was absolutely wonderful. The server was... More

Great entrees which seemed seasonally appropriate. Excellent tasting boards. Our waitress offered us another glass of wine since our entrees were delayed. She also very considerately brought a non-alcoholic drink to one in our party.

I could eat here every night. This is the place to go. The food quality and cooking is world class. Plus the bar drinks are fabulous. And the vibe. Here's an indication of how good this restaurant is.... when you are with a party of people .... every single order is brought out simultaneously by the 'a server per person'.... More
