Fish & Farm Ratings and Reviews
Disappointed. The description on open table was very nice, but reality was the opposite. The place was empty on a Saturday night, the restrooms were dirty and there was staff sittings laying on benches. Food was mediocre, and the service was good, but they didn't have any knowledge on the food. I suggest that open table changes the description. SanFran has plenty of nice places. So sip this one on your next visit.
I ate here for breakfast and was very disappointed in my meal. The Eggs Benedict were overcooked resulting in hard boiled eggs served on a very soggy English muffin topped with a tomato slice. The sauce was separated and sparse. Definitely the worst Eggs Benedict I have ever had. However, my dining companion ordered eggs over easy with ham and enjoyed his meal.
Our reservation was for 1:15 and it took 15 minutes for the server to acknowledge us. She didn't seem to know the menu very well. The salmon was over cooked, which explained the long wait. When we finished our meal, the server took our plates, but was too busy talking to other customer and didn't listen to our question. Another server assisted us instead. The place was close to being empty, there was no lunch rush. We waited 15-20 minutes to get our check. The serve was just slow and didn't care to give proper service
My husband and I found that with each plate we received, there was an equal chance they would be good or mediocre and for the price the food should have been good. My husband liked the oysters and although we both agreed that we liked the goat cheese and potato galettes it was served on this giant bed of underdressed and surprisingly salty bowl of mixed greens. My husbands clam chowder was tasty but it lacked clam flavor, it tasted mostly of watery cream. My artichoke salad was just artichokes on another giant bed of underdressed and salty mixed greens. Our entrees were delicious, my husband had the ribeye and I had the salmon both were well prepared and tasty. Our desserts were a disappointment my creme brulee was was very overdone and not smooth at all. My husband apple tart was blah. Overall the cost of the meal did not correspond with the quality of food we received. We will likely not return.
Unfortunately, I didn't get a great experience at Fish & Farm, like I'd hoped. I'd never been there, but wanted to support a restaurant sourcing their fish sustainably and serving organic produce. I met two friends from out of town there for dinner. Our waitress seemed to be having an off night, initially spilling half of my friend's drink on the table, then on my friend, then coming back with a bar rag to mop things up on the table and silverware, but not offering to replace the drink, place setting, or bread basket that was now soggy. She offered to comp my friend's next drink, but after dinner when we paid the bill, we saw that the second drink hadn't been comped. The calamari starter and goat cheese galette were fine. I ordered the seafood risotto special of the night and was disappointed. The chunks of fish, shrimp and calamari in the dish were big, tough and seemed to be of the worst cuts of the fish, like the leftovers. And the risotto was a bright orange color and fairly dry. I found the entire dish to be without flavor. My friends ordered better and finished their dishes -- the salmon with beurre blanc sauce and cod with mango. They seem to have a nice bar environment and atmosphere, but I won't be coming back after this service and food experience.
I always enjoy this place, especially for happy hour. However, I don't like that the servers are really circumspect about the happy hour menu. In order to get the happy hour prices, you have to sit at the bar. I overheard two diners complain about this, and I can imagine this confusion happens often to other diners. On top of that, this place always forgets to confirm my reservation when I check-in, resulting in OpenTable having problems and thinking I'm a no-show. Overall, I sill enjoy coming here, but it can be tricky if you're a newbie.
The pizza and soup were okay. I liked the artichoke salad although it didn't have enough artichoke and my wife thought it was too salty. I ordered a salmon special and it came out undercooked. The server said he would handle it which apparently meant put it in the microwave. There was a token amount removed from the bill but it wasn't appropriate. We won't be going back.
I'm not a huge seafood fan but I really enjoyed the meals my husband and I shared here and the dimly lit atmosphere was wonderful. I have a soft spot for tufted couches so I felt very at home in a cozy booth by the window. Because we'd made a reservation they'd held that table especially for us which I really appreciated.
We shared the goat cheese galette for starters, it's a pretty simple dish, just two rings of potato stuffed with goat cheese on a bed of greens with dressing, but you really don't need to do much to goat cheese for it to be delicious. Because there were two mini galettes this was super easy to share. We also shared the mains which was a little more difficult but well worth the effort. We had the roast salmon and the special which was cod on garlic mash potatoes with mushrooms and a lobster sauce. The salmon was great, the garlic mash was excellent and the mushrooms were very flavorsome. The cod however was a little bland and I didn't enjoy the lobster sauce, but that's because I'm not a big seafood fan. If I'd liked the sauce and ate the cod with it rather than trying to avoid it that probably would have made up for the blandness of the fish.
We also ordered fries because we wanted to try the house made tartare sauce but they never came. We ended up being glad they didn't because even having shared an appetizer, and having not quite finished our mains we were almost too full for dessert. We didn't feel rushed because the restaurant wasn't super busy so we were able to take a couple of minutes to let dinner settle and then share a crème brûlée which was also excellent. We weren't charged for the fries so no harm, no foul. I think if I were to eat here again and the cod special were available I'd ask for it without the lobster sauce and a serving of tartare instead. Less classy for sure but I know what I like.
It was horrific. Wait was 40 mins to get seated with a reservation and 1 1/2 hours to order. Never got dessert menus and whole experience took 3 1/2 hours. They claimed they had problems in their kitchen and were short-staffed. It also was expensive for mediocre food
Overall, a very enjoyable experience. We were seated promptly, attended to courteously, and everything was prepared and presented well. The goat cheese galette was perfectly cooked and came with a perfectly seasoned salad. I had the cioppino, which was delicious and quite heavy on the seafood - you definitely get your money's worth - and my husband had the pork chop, which was excellent. We also shared the change, which was good but quite dry and heavy on the crumb topping. Overall an excellent experience, although next time I think we'd try a different dessert.
Horrible on New Year's Eve, multiple people were having problems with their reservations not just us, we weren't sat for 30 min when we were finally sat no one took our order for another 30min so we got up and left. They had some type of party downstairs with super loud music which would have been fine if the rest of the service had been enough to keep up with everything else this place was trying to accomplish. Wish we could have had a good experience. But we didn't . I wish I could put negative stars but it makes me pick at least one. Oh well.
We had an great experience at dinner tonight, our first time at this restaurant. Pleasant surroundings, delicious food ( risotto, fried chicken, ahi tuna) and excellent service . Other recent reviews complained about service so we were a little concerned about our choice. But far from having complaints, we come away with high praise. The staff were warm, attentive and helpful. We'll be back!!
We left before we were served because the service was so poor. We had a reservation but still were required to wait ten minutes for a table. It was another ten minutes before a server greeted us. We placed an order. After our order was placed, another couple sat down. They were greeted five minutes later and placed an order. By the time they had almost completed their food, our order had not arrived. When I inquired of the server, he raised his voice and told me that it wasn't his fault and tried to get in an argument with me (which I wasn't seeking; I had simply inquired about the status of our order). His conduct was so upsetting that we left. Oh, and it was Christmas.
The good news: once the food arrived, it tasted good. Delicious artichoke salad. Good seafood, good burger.
The bad news: it was very slow to get any attention (at first), then a long wait for the food to arrive.
It was Christmas, so I suspect they were not staffed well.
I am mixed about Fish & Farm. We were greeted with apologies and kept hearing them around the room from various staff. We were ignored for the first 20 minutes. When finally a server stopped to talk with us, he was incredibly nice and apologetic. Everyone must have assumed we had been helped.
Our server allowed us to order off the happy hour menu, which was a little solace. The mushroom pizza was delicious, the mussels quite good, and the mac and cheese inedible. We weren't charged for that. We got out of the restaurant at barely over $20, which is less than one of their high-end entrees.
The space feels unfinished, esp if you head to the back and downstairs. I thought it was fun, but I know its not what serious diners (they type this restaurant is catering to) want to see. I also felt like the huge televisions playing sports were very distracting.
I know being a portlander has spoiled me for the New American -slash- farm to table style restaurants.... but Fish & Farm needs a restaurant coach of some sort. They are confused about who their audience is with the mix of high end food, inconsistent service, and funky ambiance.
Came 10 minutes early, and they were not prepared. Mussels were a bit fishy and they took them off the bill quickly, but we noticed they did the same for a few other tables. We thought that they knew mussels were old, but were selling them anyways. Wait staff was seriously under staffed, service was slow but waiter was very nice. Food was bland.
