“Good Food, Very Small Portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

The Farms is like a French Restaurant. Good, overpriced and small portions. For example 4 scallops is considered a meal. I will not shock you with the price. Be prepared. The trend seems to the most important thing for a chef is to make the plate beautiful which apparently you can't do with a generous portion.

“Great choice for a special occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We just returned from our Anniversary dinner at the FARM, and it turned out to be a great choice for our special occasion. We had deliberated amongst many of the highly ranked Napa restaurants, and this did not let us down.

We arrived a few minutes early, but the hostess took our wine immediately to start decanting it while we waited. They have a wonderful outdoor waiting area, with modern fire-pits and views of 2 Bocce-ball courts. The dinning room is architecturally great, we had a perfect corner booth.
The entire staff was great, just the right amount of attentiveness with out being too overbearing.

We highly recommend all of our dishes, from the Lobster Risotto and Beet salad, to the Diver Scallops and Prime Fillet for the main course. Of course, plenty of special treats came out from the kitchen (starting with the complementary sparkling wine) during the meal, to make it feel special for the occasion. We finished with the "chocolate heat" dessert, which was incredible.

Highly recommend considering this for your special dinning moment, we had a great meal.

“One of the finest meals ever!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

WOW! Fabulous food, great service, lovely ambience!!! yes, it's expensive, but what isn't in Napa/Sonoma area? Well worth the time and money to eat here! One of my overall favorite restaurants! We had attentive and informative service with a smile. Actually, everyone that greeted us did it with a huge smile. The food was amazing and they offer wine pairing information for their menu which us helpful for us. It was a comfortable and relaxing dinner and even quiet enough for us to talk - loved it!!

“A Nice Evening at Farm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We ate at The Farm on a Thursday evening. It was pretty close to perfect. The room is beautiful. We had a nice, cozy table for 2 next to the Fireplace. Service was good, attentive, but not overly so. Not too fast or too slow. We started by splitting the Caviar and Champagne special appetizer. It was spectacular! I followed it up with the Lobster Risotto. It was perfect! And just the right amount. My husband had the lamb and loved it. Dessert was good, too. Farm offered a tasting menu that focused on carrots, which were in season. We would have tried that, but were not that hungry and were tired from the trip out to California. Would definitely go back and recommend to friends.
