Good Food Bad Service
By rrd22 on 7/23/2008
I visited the Farm 2 weeks ago. I ordered the Bibb Salad, Vegetable Crepe, and the special Black Bean Burger. Everything was delicious except the Veggie Burger- bland and mushy; just a patty on a bun - nothing else, but it did come with a little side salad, that I put on top of the patty. Our waiter forgot to enter our order, so we waited an extra long time for the food to arrive. In addition to that, we had to ask to have our water glasses filled as well as our carafe. I dismissed the past experience and gave them a second chance, much to my dismay. This time we had a different server, but equally inattentive. We had to ask what the specials of the evening were, and when we wanted to get change for the check we had to go in search of our server. As a side note, I thought it was a little weird how casual/skimpy the waitstaff were dressed on both occasions compared to the atmosphere of the restaurant, and the dress of the clientele. Overall, I would go back for the food, but expect to fend for yourself.
It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This In Brooklyn

Dinner at Flatbush Farm is just a great all around dining experience. Personable, attentive waitstaff, serving wonderfully seasoned, nicely cooked, fresh ingredients in a sociable yet relaxing atmosphere at terrifically reasonable prices. The most compelling selling point about this busy local joint, for me, is the outdoor dining area in the back. On a clear and cool night, eating out back at this place makes for a perfect evening. (service is rated slightly lower than other criteria only because they are almost always busy and this seems to cause minor hiccups in service occur - i.e. wrong plate to wrong table, inconsistent service time between courses)
Pretty much excellent

The food at both Farm and Barn( the attached bar next door) never disappoint. The food at Farm is upscale comfort food, in my opinion, while never venturing into being over indulgent as some comfort food tends to trend these days. I ate there for New Years and found the Pork Goulash over Spaetzle to be the best thing I've had yet. The food at Barn is quite similar but with a more limited menu mainly focused on bar snacks. Cocktails are great, try the Brooklyn, and the draft beer selection of high quality. The crowd is diverse and low key all around.
The perfect bar/restaurant combo, period.

The Farm is *the* go-to spot if you live anywhere near Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, etc... or even if you don't! Great space, lots of room, good place to meet up -- even with large groups, tasty food, excellent drinks, and nice folks working there. Have a Ciccone Boom: Prosecco and limoncello on the rocks.
Fresh ingredients, great date spot

A beautiful additon to the park slope restaurant scene. Rustic furniture, rustic food, and sometimes very friendly staff. Everybody enjoyed their meals; from appetizer to main course. Delicious! Great desserts!! BUt please, don't bring your kids, it's too small for that.
