With table cloths and the feel of a true restaurant. There is an upstairs as many small quant restaurant like to do. I had escargot and crab cakes for lunch. They were able to accommodate a guest with vegetarian needs. The waiter was able to answer question and make changes. The place is clean, and... read more

We spent the night in Bordentown and happened upon this lovely place. Very interesting beer selection and a huge Martini list, just a shame I couldn't try them all! Food menu also looked very good though we didn't eat there.

The food is very good they cooked everything how I liked it. The prices are a little high but it's not so bad but it's worth like since the quality is so good. The staff is very friends and nice. The inside outside has a nice old school feel to it. I don't drink so I can't comment on the... More

This was my first time at Farnsworth House even though I've been a resident of Bordentown for a few years. Dinner for two, seated right away. Our server was an absolute gem - he made the experience that much better (shoutout to Chris). They had a fun beer selection. The appetizer was delicious, as was the soup du jour. I... More

I only ate here once, and the garlic was so overpowering, I couldn't email my meal. Couldn't even taste my meal. And it was pricey. Not happy about it.

The food and drinks are good but both times we were there there was a guest whose voice boomed through the bar making it difficult to hold a conversation. I don't know if this is typical but we found it off putting.

We live in town and frequent all the local restaurants. Farnsworth is my fave because it is by far the easiest to find healthy eating options in addition to the heavy, rich, Italian offerings popular in the other eateries. We love the level of service here too. Better than the rest. (This is a real review. Not written by an... More

My husband and I had dinner at Farnsworth House last night and as usual, it was excellent. We always order the same thing but are rarely disappointed. I had the grilled salmon and my husband had the filet mignon. Both perfectly cooked. There are little things they do that make the dining experience special. Homemade Hummus is brought to the...

I have visited numerous brew pubs in my years and enjoyed many however this wasn't one that I'd return to again. One needs to remember that food is the fastest depreciating commodity on the face of the planet: it's food today and tastes great and it's crap tomorrow. That's normally how it happens but this restaurant was the opposite direction.... More

We were here for a work Christmas party. There were about 20 people in our group. Our dinner took a really long time to come out - over 1.5 hours after we ordered. I had tilapia on pasta, and the pasta was swimming in butter. WAY too much!!! It was difficult to get drink refills. The food wasn't bad, but... More
