“Great location, poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

After reading reviews on TA, we were excited to try Farlows. When we arrived, we were not disappointed in the beautiful setting right on the water, the fun Caribbean atmosphere and outdoor live music. We arrived at 8PM and had a 45 minute wait, which did not surprise us since the place is so popular. But after being seated at our table indoors the entire experience changed. Our server made us feel very rushed. He quickly wrote down our orders, but took at least 10 minutes to bring the drinks. (We never did receive soda or water refills the rest of the evening.) Then after a 30 minute wait our food arrived (delivered by another person, even though our server was still there) and two of the 3 orders were wrong. I had ordered sweet potatoes for a side and received mashed. Our friend ordered corn pudding, but got broccoli. We told the delivery person about the mistake, but had to wait for our server to respond and unappologetically correct the order. The scallop, artichoke & crab bake ($22) I had was rich & delicious, but the sides were tasteless. My husband's scallops were small and overcooked. The portion was small and for the price of $22, was not a good value. All in all, I would not return except to have drinks at the tiki bar outside and enjoy the music.

“We Loved It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We've been meaning to go to Farlows for many years, but had never got round to it before and now we have it certainly won't be our last visit. The menu was varied, with a lot of Caribbean influenced dishes. My wife and cousins had different speciality fish dishes, whilst I had steak and each of us really enjoyed our meals. We found the service very friendly, which suits the environs well. The entertainment on our visit was by "Sax on The Beach", which we found entertaining, but unobtrusive.

“Great food and ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Had a really good meal of crabmeat stuffed flounder, baked sweet potato with rum butter and veggies. The food was delicious and the view was nice and relaxing. It was a busy night however and the service was not particularly efficient. It took a while to get our orders and had to flag down the waitress to request refills on drinks but all in all it was worth the drive from Venice. I would certainly go there a second time. Prices very reasonable as well.
