I came here after a recommendation from a friend, and was not disappointed at all. This restaurant uses food from local farms, and the freshness shows in the quality of the food. Their sandwiches are both nutritious and filling, and they have tasty soups and...sandwiches as well. The atmosphere is welcoming and the staff were super friendly and knowledgeable about the food and the farms.More

We travel to the city a lot and this is the first time we have eaten at Farmhouse Tavern. We visited during Restaurant Week and the offerings were great, I can definitely recommend the Mushroom Ragu. Really interesting décor and the staff were super friendly....will definitely be visiting again, had some really nice drink options too.More

We loved everything about our meal. I've been here twice and the food was fantastic both times. I love that they change the menu frequently. The service is a little slower paced but very friendly.

Note a my prior review raves about the Farmhouse! Typically one of my favorites for both the Veggie Burger (typical crab cake consistency) and the chicken soup (as good as your grandmother's fresh). However, this time around I judged my experience differently. The Veggie Burger...was overcooked / burnt and "smashed", the vegetable soup arrived luke warm, and the service was spotty at best. Farmhouse MGT: note my observations. You have a neighborhood gem...take note and please address as you are one of my favorites just outside of downtown Chicago!More

Needed a lunch near Moody Bible Institute and wandered across Farmhouse. We were pleasantly surprised; they have a Farmhouse Breakfast that includes eggs, bacon or sausage, seasoned potatoes, and choice of breads. Bountiful portions and great quality, much of it locally sourced. The staff is...friendly, inquired where we were from and what we were planning for our visit. The decor is faux farmhouse, but quaint and neat. Depending on the time you visit, you may need reservations; we walked-in and were seated at a bar along the back since all tables were reserved, but since we were just going to eat it and beat it, we were fine. Highly recommend this restaurant when in downtown Chicago.More

In the area by chance. So pleased we stopped here. Loved the menu. As non-meat eaters, we can't always say that. Also enjoyed the beer! Food and beer locally sourced. Service was friendly, cheerful and efficient. A great find for us.

In town on business and came to Farmhouse based on the reviews. Got the Short Ribs and wow they lived up to expectations. If my company tells me to come back to Chicago, I will definitely some back.

Traffic wasn't the restaurant's fault - still nice to sit outside on a beautiful evening. Just delicious food - everyone loved their choices. The $50 wine bottle was also delicious and the menu included several good-sounding salads, which they were willing to adopt for me....But I was happy to eat the yummy, but somewhat messy veggie burger. We shared the bread pudding for dessert - it was good, but what's up with restaurants charging nearly $10 for a dessert? I'm trying to avoid restaurant desserts - they're just not worth it. Next time going out for ice cream after dinner.More
