Recently celebrated my bday with 18 other friends and we really enjoyed the food - was excellent given the pricing specially if you enjoy game meat. Only problem was with slanting tables which kept making the table candles and wine glasses slide off- a candle with hot wax fell on my boyfriend's clothes and instead of apologizing and paying for the damage the waitress was very abrupt even though by bf was very polite about it. Other than that I would go back again as the food was worth it and we were a discerning group- be careful about the ostrich on the menus because that was the only dish that was overlooked n chewy

Read great reviews on menu pages but not since 2010 so I was skeptical but it was an excellent well timed delicious meal. Highly recommended from a vegetarian And a paleo diner.

I'm baffled by the last reviewer’s opinion but you never know I suppose. I went to Gentleman Farmer recently with 5 other friends, all of whom are fairly discerning diners. We ordered a large swath of the menu and everyone was very pleased. Special kudos to the pear purse (really special), burgundy snails (done with a curry, hints of masala), and pate. Of the entrees, all were great but the beef tenderloin and smoked duck were out of this world. The co-owner is a sommelier and is on site so the wine list is solid and the service is as well. I am psyched that this place opened up in my hood and will be a frequent diner.

Must have been an off night for the chef because everything that I ordered from appetizers to main course was way too sweet. The mushroom ravioli had a sicking sweet reduction, which was a shame because the mushrooms themselves tasted great. The creme brulee had a very burnt crust and the inside was a gelatinous goop of cloyingly sweet cream. It was possibly one of the worst dinners I've had in a long while. The interior of the restaurant was cute and intimate, the service was good (but slow). Probably would not come back here for a while. Also it's wrong to bury good pate under a crust of gratin. Just saying.

great little spot for an intimate and satisfying dinner. i was pretty happy with my duck dish and the pasta/ravioli w/ mushrooms was good, even if not totally memorable. wine list is well thought out (based on my dinner companion's more educated opinion).

Stopped in for dinner last week and I have to say was seriously pleasant surprised by some amazing eats. LOVED the venison sausage with a sweet and tangy blueberry reduction and if you're up for it, the escargot was literally to die for. I haven't had them prepared with curry before and they were amazingly yummy. Tried out the beet salad too, it was different (heavy on the pickle accoutrements) but not my cup of tea. Also a nice bonus, the wine by the glass list was really well done. I stuck with prosecco which was one of the better ones I've had in a long time but I also tasted some of my friend's wine and the red and white were both very solid. I'll be sure to plan a return visit very soon before word gets out.
