Beware of inedible specials 12/16/2011

Both the food and the service have gotten a lot worse.\r \r The last time (and we are not going back!) that we had dinner there we were, without any warning from the waitress, served some half-cooked, incredibly spicy peppers that burnt my mouth and ruined the rest of the meal.\r \r When we complained they gave us a half serving of the least ordered side dish (Brussel sprouts, I kid you not) to make up for it.\r \r Thank you very much for your generosity, The Farm! more

Latest Menu Sucks- and Expensive 7/30/2010

This is based on the new summer menu. I've had some good meals here, but my husband and I just paid $60 of our hard earned money on a tiny, poorly prepared meal. Skip the Mackerel- tiny, thin and tasteless in a soupy broth. The meatballs are pathetic. We had to fill up on beer and bread. The chef might be getting arrogant since there is not much competition in Flatbush/Ditmas Park area, and what can you do when you order an $18 dish that you could prepare better at home? The Chicharron was also a joke- Pork Rinds for $7! Go to any Spanish restaurant (owned and run by latinos of course) in Brooklyn and get better and cheaper. Will not be going back any time soon. Pros: Good beer and service Cons: Expensive, bland, small portions, bad brunch, more

menu seldom changes, waited too long for food 5/3/2009

We were big fans of the Farm until a week ago when we went with a party of 10 and waited and hour and a half for our entrees after our apps. PLUS when we arrived there were only 2 other tables seated! The lovely owners weren't there and the miserable chef was running things. He should NEVER come out of the kitchen. They were not nice about the ridiculous wait at all...the hostess was rude and blamed it on the outside part opening. The chef never came over to tell us anything..The only person who apologized was the BUSBOY! Not a good experience at all. stick to a burger at the bar. Pros: Nice ambience Cons: when owners arent there the place suffers more

A Brooklyn must! 4/19/2009

I love the Farm. Its so cozy and friendly and the food is forget about it. Everything tastes fresh and just made. Even a simple tuna sandwich is not so simple, they put olives inside and i am not sure what else but its just right. very reasonable prices. can't wait to go try their sister place, pomme de terre Pros: prices, food, atmosphere Cons: not too crazy about the neighborhood at night more

Stay in Brooklyn to eat!!! 2/16/2009

We just had lunch there.The food is delicious and the service is good. It is a hip fun place to go in Brooklyn. We have also been there for dinner. Parking was easy to get both times. It is not necessary to go to Park Slope and park a million miles away to get a good meal in a cool restaurant in Brooklyn. There is an organic market next door, so we always come home with fruit and vegetables and health foods. more

Inviting, with Quiet Charm 9/22/2008

I heard some very nice things about The Farm, and so, on the spur of the moment, I took the Q train over there to check out the restaurant this past Saturday. It's on Cortelyou Road, several blocks down from the train station in a part of Brooklyn that seems more like a small town in a different state. There are beautiful Victorians on the side streets, several shops (although not many), and The Farm itself is a small, laid-back restaurant, with understated but comfortable decor. I was seated right away next to the open doors to the pretty little garden in the back, and it was the perfect autumn day for it. I ordered the delicious French toast, served with fresh strawberries and maple syrup, and had some refreshing Mountain Mint Green Tea. I had the blonde waitress, and couldn't find any fault with her (as another reviewer did). She was pleasant and attentive, and asked me how everything was. I told her that the French toast, enrobed in cinnamon, was like eating a sweet brioche - very light! I sinned further and had some coconut sorbet for dessert., but I didn't care. I was enjoying the homey atmosphere. When I left, she said ""Please come back soon!"" , and I replied, ""You bet!"", and meant it. As a native Brooklynite, I love to find little treasures like The Farm in my borough. It is a welcoming place with good food in a charming part of my world. When I was there, it was only moderately busy, as this was after 3 pm, but before the dinner crowd. Add this to the list of engaging Brooklyn restaurants as are to also be found in Bay Ridge and the Slope. If you'd like to escape from the world for a while, and enjoy some good food and people in the bargain, then The Farm is the place to stop by. Pros: Good food, garden seating, nice relaxing atmosphere more

OFF THE MARK! 6/28/2008

First let me start by saying that this place has a great atmosphere and vibe. It's great to know that I don't have to go all the way to Park Slope or Manhattan for a nice restaurant and good food. \r Secondly, the food here is really great. I love the fact that I can just walk outside and around the corner and get quality food and great wine. They even have nice music playing in the background and the mood lighting is very romantic.\r \r The bad part that ruined the whole experience for me:\r The waitress was the worst ever in history. She didn't even give us a chance to look at the menu before she was asking (more like begging) us to order. She stood at the table just waiting. I had to ask her several times to give us a minute to look at the menu. My husband was soooo disgusted with her. \r The glasses and table were also greasy.\r \r Food Review:\r Shiraz wine: GREAT!!\r Pork Chop: Absolutely Amazing!\r English Muffin Burger: Excellent.\r \r We will of course go back but I think we'll ask for the waiter with the bald head. He's the best. The blond girl waitress is the absolute worst!!! Pros: FOOD, Ambiance, FOOD, FOOD, FOOD!!!! :) Cons: Blond waitress more

great food, seasonal menu, always fresh and interesting here! 6/21/2008

This Brooklyn gem was a wlecome surprise when I moved into my new neighborhood. The burgers are FANTASTIC (get the curry mayonaise to go with your fries!) and the fish is always fresh! Try the original drinks (the Provencial Martini is one of my favorites) and the appitizers (GREAT cured meat plate!) I always bring visitors to my neighborhood here to show off what Brooklyn has to offer, and they are always impressed! Pros: great atmosphere, outdoor dining area, great bar, FANTASTIC food Cons: small space, can get loud more

Nice surprise! 4/3/2008

Very good! Packed for a Tuesday night, to my surprise...filled with yuppies very diverse crowd. Dim lighting, the drinks weren't that great, got something they suggested off the menu. I order the pork chop with kale and some sweet potato something and it was soooo yummy! the pork chop was as big as my head, shared it with my friend. We had apple pie, it was good! taste like grandma made it herself in the back kitchen. Prompt seating right in front of the widow. Pros: prompt seating Cons: nasty drinks more

Great Brunch 1/2/2008

My boyfriend and I go to The Farm for brunch almost every weekend. Sure it gets pretty crowded after 11, so don't sleep in. Although we never had a problem with their staff - they're always very attentive and friendly even when its mad crowded. Try their Bloody Marys - they are to die for. The omelets are great ( come with a salad and a huge toast) and my bf also raves about their burgers, though the ""3-minute eggs"" are nothing special. Most of their foods are made with all natural and organic products, so its just right for health freaks and the like. The atmosphere is relaxed and very cozy. Overall its a great place to spend your Sunday morning. Pros: Healthy, delicious, friendly Cons: can get very busy more

Sunday brunch is a no-go 9/9/2007

Even though the line was almost out the door, we decided to stick it out for Sunday brunch. When the hostess finally got around to taking people's names, we were 2nd in line. She said we could take a seat at the bar and that she'd let us know when our outside table was ready. We then watched as the couple after us got seated outside. The hostess seemed confused when we asked her what the deal was, but we decided to wait the extra 15 minutes for another table to open up. When we finally sat down at a picnic table under a shedding tree, we ordered and waited at least 30 minutes for our food to come out, again watching other people get served first (and putting up with our waiter's awkward attempt at comedy). After all of that, the food was sub-par to say the least...which was disppointing because of the great things we'd heard about it. After wasting the majority of our Sunday there, it's safe to say that we won't be going back. Pros: Interesting menu, good location for Brooklynites Cons: Horrendous service, shedding trees more

Pretty cool.... 4/17/2007

This place is pretty awesome. The two owners are really sweet, young down to earth people... And I believe the head chef is from Sweetwater in Williamsburg... its nice to have a big name in Ditmas Park. The ambiance of the place is great; I've been in here a couple of times already. Its a great place to go and have a drink at their well-stocked and interesting (Blueberry ale) bar.... which is open really late. I was there once on a Friday until 2am, and it was still crowded when I left. The decor is really rustic and sleek somehow; also the garden outback is gorgeous. Now the important part: the food. I've had the artichoke ravioli which was fantastic. As a matter of fact, I had it twice though I knew I should have tried something new the second time... I couldn't help myself! I've also had the trout, which I was hesistant to order, but arrived not only perfectly cooked, but not bland at all, as I imagine most white fish to be. I crave the fries with curry mayo on a constant basis; the curry mayo is sweet yet still smoky and almost spicy. Anyway, I can't wait to try brunch here! Just one more thing: please start delivering!!! Pros: relatively cheap($14 trout?) bar, people who hang here Cons: no delivery! more

what a find! 3/29/2007

My girlfriend and I just moved into the neighberhood...there did not appear much in the way of good restaurants until I passed by ""The Farm""...the design of the restaurant is what drew me in first...the brick interior and the mismatched tables and chairs...anyhow, the food did not disappoint...they have a wonderful wine selection which is not pricey...the cheese plate and cured meat plate are a must try for appertizers...the second time around I had their home made pate, also a must....my girlfriend had the trout with israeli cous cous, very light but very filling...my pork loin was good as well (though every so slightly well done for my taste...I like my meat on the rare side)...small dinning note, avoid ordering the mixed salad (side dish), because most entrees come with a salad...we're going back fror brunch this Sunday...can't wait...the bar is a nice hang out area with an interesting drink list...and they have a great outdoor space in the back....I'm very excited to have ""Farm on Adderlley"" as my neighberhood restaurant. Pros: outdoor space, bar area, ambience, service, food and price more
