There is always a wait for a table at this eatery, even if you have a reservation! Very popular ! Bar and good food. Good, reliable food, I like their breakfasts better.

Menu has lots of excellent healthy choices, including daily specials. We had three different dishes: chicken, salmon, shrimp. All delicious, with generous portions. A wonderful discovery, highly recommend... More

The Farmer's Table lives up to its expectations! The food was delicious, creative, and wonderful. Fresh too! I had the Shrimp Mojo which was very special. Others had the duck confit tacos, which they loved. The alcohol specials were terrific as well -- peach sangria and a vodka lemonade. We sat outside on a warm night, which was icing on... More

Went to Farmers Table for date night and they didn't disappoint. My husband had the jerk chicken and I had the salmon and both were fresh, well seasoned and perfectly cooked. In addition, the staff was friendly, professional and attentive, making it a truly great experience. We'll definitely be back!

Wait staff struggled to make our visit smooth and enjoyable. Drink order was forgotten, dessert menu had to be requested, cream had curdled. The restaurant was not full so there was little excuse for not treating us better. Having said that our orders were well prepared and enjoyable.

The food is fresh and very well prepared (within view of some tables) in the small New Canaan restaurant.
