“Very Dissapointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2009

I had read a favorable review about the Farmhouse Inn and was very excited to enjoy a wonderful romantic dinner with my husband. However, our experience was beyond dissapointing. The restaurant was very warm. The windows were open, and the air was not working properly during an 85 degree day. The service was intrusive. Within one hour, we were visited at our table ELEVEN times by four different service providers. As soon as we began a conversation, there was another interruption. The wine was uninspiring and overpriced, which was unbelievable given we were in the middle of wine country! Our food was good, even above average, but again the prices were ridiculous. When food and wine are priced so high, it becomes nearly impossible to meet expectations. We had equally good meals, at reasonable prices, from restaurants with better ambiance during our week long trip to the Russian River area.

“Always outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2009

This was our third dinner at the Farmhouse Inn and as with other visits the food and service were outstanding. The Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit entre' is one of our favorites. They offer an extensive wine list with high-quality wines in a broad range of prices.

“Fabulous Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2009

Great restuarant, you cannot go wrong here.

The food was fabulous and fresh. The trio of rabbit is great and an interesting way to try it prepared several different ways. The heirloom tomato salad was so good that after eating there, my husband came home and started an heirloom tomato garden in an effort to duplicate it.

The ambience is romantic and classy. A very quiet restuarant.

Service was outstanding. Great wine list (of course).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2009

The first visit was five-star... Incredible food, wine pairing, service... The second visit was good, but not memorable. The food was average for the setting and the service was not well timed. We will go back again as the first meal there was exceptional!

“Nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2008

Good food and service in a pretty room in the farmhouse. The ambiance was a little quiet for us and I really had a hard time selecting something from the very limited dinner menu.
