We had some under seared tuna & over cooked chicken. Half the items we tried to order they were out of, they didn't clear the plates on the table, yet kept bringing out more items that couldn't fit anymore & out server was clearly frazzled & didn't seem to be happy to be there. Definitely not our best night out for dinner.
Great food, outdoor seating, located in cute area of La Mesa.
Everything was quite good except they ran out of tres leches cake and took too long to inform us. They did, however, comp my wife’s cannoli dessert as a replacement. Overall we had a really good time. Flatbreads were good, Brussel sprouts excellent and the limoncello cake was fantastic.
We had a really nice time celebrating our team mates (party of 12) and the staff was very pleasant and accommodating.
This place has great potential. Sucks its the only decent place in La Mesa.
Server was not attentive, we were not served plates with our appetizers, even after asking the busser! We would have had more food and drinks, but our server did not come back to check on us. And it was not a busy day!
We had a great pre fixe meal for Easter
I live up the street from this restaurant and come about every two months. I have to say this location has gone down hill which is extremely sad. It was a neighborhood gem for so many years but that last several visits were very disappointing. The quality of the food has dramatically changed. During my last visit, we ordered the Tuna Tartare which arrived to the table grey in color (clearly not fresh), our steak was fatty and overcooked, our pasta was cold and undercooked, and our dessert looked like it fell off the plate only to be scooped back up and brought to the table. I'm not sure if the cooking staff has changed but there is a noticeable difference in the food and presentation. I use to appreciate their attention to quality locally sourced ingredients but I can't say they have held those standards. Unfortunately, we will not be coming back.
The waiter was very attentive. Food was amazing. Everything tasted delicious
- Had to wait although a OpenTable Reservation.
- Coffee was Luke warm
- COVID Surge resulted in packed restaurant ... frequent dropping of glassware.
- Due to an overly packed restaurant... the minimal amount of servers could not be intentional.
- Food Requests we’re not met.
Excellent experience, service and food. We will enjoy regularly!
A little slow on service but great atmosphere
Brunch was amazing and great service. I love their red sangria as well!
Overall we really enjoyed our meal, and this will be one of our go to restaurants. The food is very good. However, service could use some fine tuning in regards to checking back after meal is served and timeliness. We were done with our apps and the dishes remained on the table for a very long time. And we waited quite a while to order our entrees.
The other thing we need to point out is perhaps more attention needs to be focused on cleanliness and sanitation during these more challenging times. Thank you
We had a late reservation for a “large” party. Server was attentive and food was fresh.
Same server we’ve had two other times - great food, great service
They ignored our reservation completely. Sat people who came after us w/o reservations (same # in groups) and then told us (40 - minutes after reservation) that we could have a table outside w/o heat despite all other tables have heaters. We were appalled.
Drinks from the bar were great and food was delicious. Waitress was professional and friendly. Great job!
Great menu selection. Our Server was terrific and offered many suggestions. Wanted to try something new for dinner so went with the suggestions and recommendations of our server. We were completely satisfied with everything she recommended.
Will definitely be back, and would highly recommend to others looking for a nice dinner and dining experience.
Great food, great atmosphere, awesome service! All staff deserve a raise.
I’d love to say better things at this restaurant because I’ve experienced better there. Our reservation was at 4 PM, they were dirty dishes with leftover food on several tables on the patio. They were still there when we left at six. The roasted chicken was plain and very overpriced. Drinks are weak. Waitress was not friendly. It was not busy at all when we arrived. And where the heck is the baby changing table? There are two bathrooms inside, and there was not a sign on either one that had a changing table. One bathroom was locked so we had to use the other. That was fun.
Overall the food was fair at best. Took 10 mins to be greeted by the waitress, 35 mins to get salads and other items very slowly after. Appetizer was soggy and cold. Such a cute restaurant just nothing good about it.
Enjoyed the overall experience. Food and ambiance is good. Wait staff/service while nice enough is sporatic and on the slow side.
Outside dining = cold food, cold coffee. Ordered Eggs Benedict on English muffin, came on focaccia. Adorable server, who was, however, inefficient, with very long waits for 1.) a straw, 2.) a "warm" cup of coffee, 3.) a replacement entree for the wrong one 4.) the check. Not the greatest dining experience.
(And...the restroom was paper-littered and the toilet didn't flush.)
I had to ask for the manager because of the extremely slow service. I ordered a drink and with 6 tables it took 20 minutes. The drink was ready but the server was gone. The food was so mediocre. Mac n cheese was slimy. Pizza was soggy. Manager did comp a drink but definitely not returning.
I was a little disappointed in the overall vibe. Service staff just seemed annoyed or like they didnt want to be there. Not very welcoming.
Such a cute place. Everything was delicious and the service was great!
Great service and very accommodating for a small group breakfast. Not my first time and it won’t be my last. Modern and cozy at the same time. Comfort and classy decor.
The hostess said she didn’t see or have our reservation. But we were seated quickly so that was nice. Once seated it took a while for someone to bring water and again for someone to come back for our drink order. Same with leaving. We sat there a while waiting for our check. The food was good though and the drinks were as well!
Very nice place, great service and food was amazing !
Place has a nice vibe.
We don’t rush dinning so we were there for some time.
Had a couple cocktails, the octopus app, the crab cake, then a NY Strip and Shirt rib, glasses of red wine. Everything was tasty. Service was good, attentive but not bothersome. I will definitely return for another meal if I’m in the area.
The food is very good. I really like the fresh cheeses. Everything is fresh and locally sourced, so optimally nutritious! Yum!
We placed a reservation requesting high chair and indoor seating. When we arrived the high chair was not ready for us. We were sitted outside and nearly froze. We aasked the server to light the heater for us. He said it was too much work. We asked again and after a sigh he finally lit it.
Food and drinks were great although my seabass was overcooked and dry.
I had taken my daughter and her friends for a nice dinner. They all enjoyed their food and great service.
It was a good experience. A little costly on the food for what you get. I got the soul which was excellent but the cauliflower was cold
Enjoyed a nice Friday night meal on the patio. Thank you Farmer's Table La Mesa.
The staff is always so kind and knowledgeable and the food is outstanding every single time. The ambiance is so fun and picturesque. You can dress up or dress down and you'll fit right in.
I had it was a birthday when I made the reservations. They didn’t acknowledge my nieces birthday . That was a bit annoying .
I had the Frittata, amazing!!! The service was excellent and ambiance is one of my favorites!!
Always love the Farmers Table - best in South County.
