Never ate anything but fast food in Farmington. Based on trip advisor reviews I chose 12 West for Mother's Day. We were not disappointed! My wife absolutely loved the place and the food was excellent. We ordered off the brunch menu but you could order off the full menu as well. Highly recommend and we will be going back next... More

Trip Advisor is correct. Middle of historic downtown. Superb food & presentation. Large portions. Nice atmosphere, light & airy. Windows face the street. Pricey? Yes, but you get what you paid for.

You will not be disappointed with this quaint, downtown, locally owned restaurant. My husband have been dining here for at least 11 years and I have yet to try anything that I did not like! The steak is always awesome! The drink menu is amazing! One of my all time favorites to order, especially if I just am in the... More

Google search brought this restaurant up. They do not do delivery, as indicated by Search; no problem, I decided to order and pick up. When I tried to do that, however, the person on the phone told me that I had an outdated menu. I told her I was looking at their own web site and confirmed the web address.... More

We are repeat customers. Love the melon margarita and the pork chop dinner is phenomenal. Mashed sweet potatoes are a mouth watering accompaniment. Plus the gooey butter cake for dessert is a no brainer. Awesome atmosphere. Great place for a celebration or lunch/dinner date.

We were a party of eight. We had a private area of the restaurant, nice ambiance. The food was good, not exceptional. The service was excellent.

The food is hit or miss. Some things are amazing like the pork chops which are to die for, but other entrees are just so so. The salads are pretentious and the desserts are just ok. All in all, I'd go back for the pork chops, but only rarely because the cost is just too high.

The service and atmosphere was fantastic. 12 West is a great little fine dining restaurant in the heart of a small town. The menu variety is exceptional for the area and is a nice break from the fast food chains and other sit down restaurants. My husband had the spicy flat iron grilled steak. He described it as a little... More
