“Beautiful food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Our family of six had an outstanding experience at Farmshop last night. The food was beautifully prepared and our server was fantastic. His recommendations were right on point. The fava bean hummus was amazing. My son decided to try the chicken which was very flavorful and absolutely delicious. We had a great experience. The shop is also very fun and full of great things to take home!

“Breakfast with a flair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is a beautiful restaurant within a small barn like center called the Brentwood Country Mart. The interior of this place is really appealing: a section of cheeses and cured meats, a wine section, a bakery that has scrumptious pastries and cookies, and a restaurant. For breakfast we had interesting choices such as shirred eggs with wild greens, fennel cream, bacon and sourbread toast. The toasted butter croissant with scrambled eggs, fromage blanc, pears and honey was terrific as well. Then from the bakery--take your pick. Many delicious choices. What a delightful place to enjoy with someone special.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

The food was excellent. The restaurant is in a very large facility that also contains the market. The food is very fresh and prepared very nicely. The Jidouri chicken and strip steak were excellent.
A great, casual dining experience

“Just paid the credit card bill...not worth it!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Small portions...over priced...overdone service...had stomach pains from the food later that night. The portions are so small I don't know how they recommend that patrons share them like tapas. Gastronomical chi chi but not delicious. Over attentive service...constantly filling water glasses and clearing the table but brought the bill while still eating dessert! Save money, time, and yourself - go somewhere else.

“bright, delicious & overly priced.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is a perfect place to have a casual breakfast or brunch if you value farm to table and gourmet food. I do. The only drawback is that you will pay a premium for it.
Nothing much more to say other than I recommend the grilled artichoke borata salad, the avocado hummus and the pastrami sandwich.
