We went to The Farm Table today to celebrate our anniversary. Having dined here many times before and enjoyed ourselves enough to drive an hour for a special occasion, we were a little disappointed with today's experience. It was an overcast day in the middle of the week and the restaurant was far from busy. We were greeted immediately and pleasantly by the hostess, who then disappeared for almost five minutes, "to check on a table". She was gone so long that another hostess came over to offer to seat us. We were eventually seated in the beautiful large dining room, which had the effect of being all alone in an empty restaurant. The very pleasant waitress took our drink order, which took so long to come that she had to aplologize for it. We ordered our meals and the appetizers, soup and salad, which should be available almost immediately, took so long to arrive the soup was lukewarm and had a skin on it. The soup, described as potato and leek with a touch of cheese, was a strange taupe color and completely overwhelmed by the cheese. The sandwiches were delicious. Will we go back? Probably. Any restaurant can have an off day, but certainly if the place is empty I will request that we be seated in the more comfortable main house, rather than the cavernous large room.

A friend and I had lunch here. We only live a half an hour from Bernardston but had never eaten at the restaurant before. We were there on aa lovely sunny day and the ambience was perfect. The daily special omelet of ham,arugula, cheeses and onion was light an fluffy and my friend's chicken bacon club with homemade bread and house made potato chips looked perfect. We will go back for dinner with our husbands!

This was our second lunch experience at the Farm Table in Bernardston, MA and we enjoyed it very much again. The ambiance was lovely; the wait staff was just friendly enough and the food was delicious! We had some crab cakes that were to die for and the salad was incredibly fresh and delicious. Lovely experience and a real treat!

Our spirits were lifted on a rainy afternoon as we viewed the extensive, well-manicured gardens leading to the entrance. Enormous venue with striking white marble bar and several separate dining rooms for amply-spaced and comfortable seating. The menu is imaginative offering unique pizzas, creative salads, and a variety of seafood or meat entrees. Our table ordered two different pizzas (one meatless - both delicious) crispy fried oyster salad (a favorite), onion/leek quiche (light and fluffy), and poached salmon (in a delicious lemon-Tarragon sauce). We didn't order dessert but the selections looked amazing. In a word, everything was outstanding. Atmosphere is delightful.......as was the attentive wait staff. Pricey? Perhaps, but well worth the experience. Adjacent to the Kringle Candle store, Kringle toy shop, and Christmas Emporium....great for a lazy afternoon with friends.
