"We enjoyed the 3 course pre-fixe menu and it was excellent. We both had the crab asparagus soup and then the sirloin steak. Had to take a box with half the meal home.
Dessert was creme brûlée for me and Chocolate almond torte for the hub.
Delicious and very good service from the young man who waited on us. We were attending a play afterwards on the premises.

"We went here because it is attached to People's light Theater and we had tickets . We expected an acceptable meal but were so surprised- everything was delicious. Looking forward to going back.
Service was excellent, helpful, attentive and always available.

"The Farmhouse Bistro is associated with the People's Light Theater in Malvern, PA. Apparently on show nights, there is a dinner rush before 7:30. On our first visit, my husband and I made a reservation, unaware of whether anything was playing or not. It turns out there was no show that night, and we were the ONLY customers for the entire evening. That made for a surprising and very interesting experience. Our waiter happened to be an aspiring movie director, so he and my husband spent a couple of hours talking about movies. Meanwhile, the food was very good, although not memorable.
We have returned to Farmhouse Bistro a couple of times, when the restaurant was full (we even saw Jonatha Brooke, who brought her show from Broadway). Though the menu is consistent, I would only recommend the restaurant to locals (it's a bit out of the way) who are either going to a show, or are just interested in a nice, unremarkable meal."

"Been to Farmhouse about 15 or more times and have taken family and friends. Always loved it! This Valentines Day was a terrible visit. Only thing good was the 1st course. Then we waited for everything. Had to ask for wine over and over-appetizer was cheese board--with no wine. main course was not tasty and my fish was dry. Dessert was fair. So surprising really. I spent a lot of money that night. Certainly not worth it and it was Valentines day. Waiter was not very good and that takes some training. Train him. We probably won't be back."

"My book club has met at the Farmhouse Bistro twice now for brunch. The service is always excellent and this time they sat us at a long table off by ourselves. The food is always great and they have a good selection. I really enjoy having our meetups here and look forward to having dinner here with friends soon."

"Tables are packed together. Can overhear neighbor's conversation. Chairs are metal and not very comfortable. Cheese plate was very good. Caesar Salad dressing extremely bland, very disappointed. Four medium -sized shrimp were extra. Good, but small and not worth the extra $. Real wood fire burning was nice touch."

"A great spot to dine before or after the theatre, but don't expect the food to match the ambiance. Chef needs to be more adventurous; food is a bit bland. For example, my trout was perfectly cooked, and pretty tasty, but the accompanying pearled couscous had no flavor at all. It wasn't even cooked in broth, which would have helped. My huband's beef bourguignon was ok, but not the rich deep sauce of a good beef bourguignon.
There are many nice touches here, the beautiful glasses, the fireplace, the warm rolls. I suggest the chef kick it up a notch, and it could really be terrific.

"I dined here on 12/6/15 with my husband and teenage daughter. We went for dinner after a play. Luckily I had a gift card because i think i would have cried if I actually had to pay for this meal out of my pocket. it was horrible!!! I had the Short Ribs which were terrible. There was soo much fat in the meat I hardly ate any. It came with mashed potatoes which were good. My daughter had the filet tips with some sort of gravy and potatoes- almost like a stew. The meat was way overcooked. Don't bother!! My husband had Ravioli which were ok. The cheese tray was lacking cheese- there was about 7 pieces on the whole plate and the Pate was soo horrible..
We were one of two tables in a small dining room. The other table consisted of about 8-10 people. They were super loud and annoying. I should have asked to move to a different area...but didn't. I will not go back here and am curious as to how they are still in business."
