Farmer’s Table charges "fine dining" prices, but it never quite measures up to its hype or the bill. We have patronized Farmer's Table since it first opened, and all of our meals there have been very good, but never excellent. Desserts have improved radically since the beginning. Most of the best items, such as the short rib, remain on the menu.
Service is rarely as it should be. I'm not sure what it is, but the wait staff always seems to me too "hippy dippy." Some may get a kick out of that, but I don't dine to relate to a "cool" waiter.
This meal included many wonderful items. The tuna tartare appetizer was marvelous. The snapper main was superb, although the chickpea masala side came close to overwhelming the perfectly cooked snapper. The trout, on the other hand, thin as each trout filet is, was overcooked - a danger of trout. We should have sent it back, in retrospect. The apple crumble dessert is really good.
We will keep coming back, always hoping that Farmer's Table rises to the occasion.
