This was our second visit to Farmstead, after a less than perfect first experience late last year - and we all agree that these seemed like a much different and much improved place from the one we visited in November of last year. My wife and I were seated in the ample, high ceiling main dining room and despite the big space it never got too loud or seemed like you were eating in a barn ! In fact it had a warm, comfortable feeling. this was helped by our excellent and very professional server who never seemed to do enough for us, from refilling the complimentary bottled still/sparkling waters, to bringing us the biscuits and excellent courses. The steak tartar was well prepared, seasoned evenly and when we added the egg yolk it was lucious on the toasted slices of bread. My wife and I shared a liter of the house white wine (oddly served in an Erlenmeyer Flask - think HS Chemistry Class) and enjoyed the Arugela and Strawberry salad, as well as the local oyster platter. The NY Strip was the meat special of the night and we were not disappointed. A side of asparagus helped us get in those badly needed local veggies and we finished off with a few glasses of local red wine - skipping dessert becuase we were simply TOO FULL ! Nice winelist (and priced fairly) and even nicer is the $2 corkage fee (which they apparently even donate to local charities). Bring a friend, a serious appetite and maybe a nice cab from a local vinter and you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED ! Bravo for the step up in service and food ! You guys are in the groove. Stay there and we will keep coming back.
