Description: Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch's restaurant showcases the seasonal, ingredient-driven American farmhouse cooking of executive chef Stephen Barber. LMR Grass-fed Beef CheeseburgerHoused in a former nursery barn, our 110-seat restaurant revolves around a central open kitchen with booth and central seating, community dining, and a full bar. We feature an authentic farm-to-table menu. The ingredients are foraged from local sources and feature Long Meadow Ranch's all natural grass-fed beef and lamb, organic and sustainably produced eggs, fruits, vegetables, extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, and honey. Possessing a substantial background in Southern cooking styles, Stephen emphasizes a wood-burning element for select dishes. Stephen's kitchen is also outfitted with a plancha, a cast-iron grill ideal for searing Long Meadow Ranch's healthy, tender, and flavorful grass-fed beef and lamb. Community tables at Farmstead restaurantFarmstead at Long Meadow Ranch's restaurant wine program features Long Meadow Ranch Winery's elegant and balanced wines, as well as other domestic and international wines selected by Chris Hall to complement the restaurant's American farmhouse cooking. LMR and Farmstead wines are also available to purchase to-go at the Logan-Ives House cellar door. There is no corkage fee at Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch. Instead, a $5-per-bottle fee is collected as a donation to a featured local community-building not-for-profit organization each month. We call this program Corkage for Community.

“Great lunch spot while touring Napa wine”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We had lunch at Farmstead during our wine tour of Napa, and what a tasty treat it was! The place is very charming, with a comfortable country atmosphere. Smells abound and make you curious to try everything on the menu. There were two of us, and we split a couple dishes, which turned out to be the perfect amount of food to not fill us up too much - there was much more wine to be tasted after all!

The cheese biscuits are a must - they're chesse biscuits, why wouldn't you try them! :) We shared the arugula salad which was simple and delicious. Not too many complex flavors or overly ambitious - just a great, cool, crisp salad. Then we split the pulled pork sandwich, served with potato salad. Holy smokes! The sandwich was elegant and tasty, not relying heavily on bbq sauce for taste. The potato salad...oh, that potato salad was definitely something to write home about. Creamy, tangy and included bacon. Sign me up!! I could've had an entire plate of the potato salad alone.

Will definitely return to Farmstead.

“Great Food, huge portions”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We enjoyed our lunch here, however the portions are very big, we could have enjoyed the delicious biscuits as our shared started and then shared an entree and we would have been just fine. Everything was delicious and the service was good, the place itself was charming and spacious. The menu had so many wonderful options we didn't know what to choose, I would definitely go back.

We feature live music at our outdoor bar and lounge area every Friday evening from 5 PM. The Jimi James Duo performs many favorites from the classic country songbook and is part of what makes Friday evenings at our outdoor bar and lounge area such a good time. Thanks for your feedback; sorry the music was not to your liking.

“Missing Farmstead”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We recently moved away from St. Helena, and one of the things we miss the most is eating at Farmstead. They score very high for the neighborhood on price/value--just great food at very reasonable prices. Good assortment of small plates, good local wine list, great setting with the yard. And it is not hoity toity so you don't encounter some of the badly behaved too much money too soon types you find at some of the higher end places (name may rhyme with shondry).
