Four of us had a delicious dinner at Farmstead: two of us had the duck & mushroom pappardelle, and the other two had fish (char and the halibut cheeks). Everyone was happy with their meal. Husband and I would have liked to see more vegan...More

I love this farm to table restaurant. We went as a large team (13 people) and somehow they were able to squeeze us all into their little place. It’s a small restaurant. Everything we ordered was outstanding. We started the meal with popovers and small...More

I met a business colleague for lunch at this quaint little restaurant in the heart of Newton. I absolutely loved the vibe and the food. I had the fish of the day - fresh salmon served over winter vegetables. It was delicious.

This restaurant has been here for years and serves a varied, changing menu of always tasty food. It is pleasant for lunch or dinner, the restaurant is small but the tables are well spaced. I have always had a good meal.

Yes, if you want some farm fresh food but do not feel like going to the farmer's market, let this restaurant alleviate your guilt. The arugula in the salad of that name tasted as if it had been picked just moments before. With the arugula...More

Went for Sunday brunch. The interior is clean and comfortable. The tables are spaced well, the staff is friendly. I had Brussel Sprout tacos. The sprouts were excellent, the slaw was a bit too acidic and drowned out some of the great taste of the...More
