Nice old building converted into a cool restaurant. Food was good and plenty of it and the service was good.
Beer choice was also very good. In the area then worth a visit.

I arrived in San Jose late 10:00 PM Saturday night. Restaurant in hotel was closed so I walked down W Santa Clara Street a few blocks to The Farmers Union. Bar was packed but Hostess seated me in Restaurant area immediately. Very fast service and waitress was extremely helpful and polite.

The food at Farmers Union is not just delicious, but an experience.

I had a salad. Boring, right? Not here. Not even close. It was dressed up and still remained healthy: Spanish almonds, dates, avocados, grilled chicken ... an amazing combination of sweet and salty and rich all in one bowl of goodness.

Or if you prefer not as healthy ... no worries. You can indulge in many fantastic options!

The event coordinator was excellent. The food was very good. The private room was also great. The only negative comment - the acoustics made hearing difficult. Have eaten here several other times in small groups and have never been disappointed.

Was really looking forward to eating here. When we got inside the restaurant was almost empty. The two women in front of us didn’t have a reservation yet were seated immediately. We had a res but because we were 15 minutes early we were told we wouldn’t be seated for about 20 minutes. WHAT????? In an almost empty restaurant where we had a res? Host staff was super rude, tons of eye-rolling and sassy talk. We should have left but didn’t. Finally seated (after two more no res tables) our server was sweet and the food was moderate though pricey. Nice beer list and light airy room.

Will probably NEVER GO BACK.
