I honestly don't even know where to begin. My boyfriend and I are avid restaurant goers, and we are always on the lookout for new places and our friend had recommended Flatbush Farms. We arrived and were seated immediately, which made us

This was, from start to finish, a mind-bogglingly uncomfortable experience. Lexicographers take note: a new and fascinating definition of rudeness is alive and flourishing right here in Brooklyn.
The servers at Flatbush Farm appear to have perfected that ghastly technique of making you feel guilty and ashamed for deigning to attract their attention. Polite acknowledgement is out; supercilious scorn is in. And how many times can you pick up the same perfectly aligned set of napkins, inspect them vapidly and plonk them down in exactly the same place instead of venturing a glance at people who are there to help you make the rent?
A different server enhanced the fun, dumping our entrees in front of us halfway through our appetizer (which was delicious). Overall the food quality was pretty good, though I hear the salmon is much better when it hasn't sat cooling in front of the guest.
The place has a nice fit-out, some attractive furnishings and, from what I could tell, a reasonable wine list (I was given the food menu when I asked for the carte des vins)
At $120 for two people, however, this in no way represents value, unless you're looking to pay by the hour for passive-aggressive torture. On that scale, it's a world-beater.

Did I expect too much? Just call it Chili for Chrissake.
The "Heirloom Legume" item. Did you have to play with me like that? Get me all worked up for a tantalizing taste sensation and then wait... and.... here it comes..... Chili. And don't charge me $20 bucks for it. You deserve a smack in the head. That's a greater profit margin than the top shelf booze. Your description on the menu, a bit aggrandizing wouldn't you say for CHILI? Don't get me started.

Pros: smaking the chef in the head fantasy is really satisfying

Cons: overpriced salty food, filthy bathroom, inept waitstaff

I went with JWILS. Her review is above.
I was one of the people that went for this horrible experience. My friend is 100% right in the experience we had. The hostess was rude and I got a distinct feeling that they did not want to serve us. The only thing that my friend left out is that when we sat down at the bar the bartender disappeared. I asked for a menu and the same waitress looked at my like I was insane. I was shocked that my friends wanted to stay after the waitress said, "can I help you" and "how many are in your party." What? The three of us standing in front of her should have been an indication of how many of us there were. We didn't look like the other patrons in there so unfortunately I think that may have been part of the problem. Shame on this place for the horrible rude staff and non-existent customer service.

Pros: none

Cons: nasty servers, inexplicatble 30min wait, invisible bartender

After driving around with a couple of friends, we noticed the sign for Flatbush Farms and thought it would be a cool place to catch dinner on a Sunday evening.

We went inside and was met with the hostess who looked my friends and I up and down and said in the RUDEST tone ever, "Can I Help You?" Really?! I don't think I walked into the Gap or H&M...this is a restaurant...what do you mean can i help you? You should start off by something like welcome to Flatbush Farm would you like to join us for dinner...something like that...

So I didn't walk out, I said yes we would like a table for dinner. She looked at the THREE people standing in front of her and said with such a deadpan expression...How Many? Again, I didn't walk out, I said its 3 of us.

It was a 30 min wait so we sat the bar. Fine, we'll have drinks and chat and wait.

There was a couple that just got up from the bar and the man left his cell on the counter. I said to the hostess, "someone left there cell phone at the bar...I think it belongs to the couple that just got up" WELL, she looked at me like I had just spoken in Swahili and grew two heads right in front of her because she stared at me for a moment, then rolled her eyes and DID NOT RESPOND!! At this point, my friends and I looked at each other, and left. As we were leaving I hear her yell behind us, oh you're leaving. I just kept going b/c I don't have the type of personality that can be calm in these types of situations. My friends were polite and said yes we've changed our minds but I just walked out. We went to a nice Greek restaurant right across the street and had some of the best food I've eaten in a while.

PLEASE DONT GO HERE!! The other reviewers are RIGHT! The service is deplorable!!!

Myself and four friends dined at Flatbush Farm last night and it was a great! I was apprehensive about this place from reading the reviews and was pleasantly surprised before, during and after the meal. I feel like I went to a different restaurant. One with scrumptious food (my husband and I had the mouth watering steak for two), good service, and no greasy haired waitress. Hmmmm......I smell high maintenance customers frequenting this area. Hello? This is far from fine dining and the cool, aloof service is probably a result of your high maintenance self barking away at the wait staff. This place is CASUAL and very mellow. We had a very nice server who appeared when she was needed and waited on other tables when we didn't need her. Oh my God, yes there were other tables there who also looked extremely pleased with the food. I saw the half chicken entree float by and it was HUGE. Nice portions - the steak for two is not for light eaters. So, for those of you wondering where the server was on a busy night, she was...let me take a wild guess here, WAITING on other tables because you were probably not the only table there. Whew! I know you probably didn't realize this. The prices are reasonable (organic = expensive, park slope(ish)=expensive, year 2009 economy tanking = expensive) and the food is very tasty. If you need to count your pennies to have dinner, perhaps you should stay home and cook your own dinner!

Although our waiter was a bit strange, I had a really nice, relaxed time at Flatbush Farms. There were a variety of interesting dishes on the menu and, based on the burger I had, I'd venture to say that each dish is as fresh, flavorful and delicious. The atmosphere was candlelit, cozy and the selection of music was just perfect. I can't wait to try out the bar next door.

wow. after living in the area for three years, i finally went to the flatbush farm tonight. my wife and i were really excited.

the only understanding that i can offer them:

we waited 20 mins for table. no problem. saturday night.

and that is the end of the courtesy.

after being seated. five minutes until the "waiter" came over. told us of the specials, was insulted that we were not ready to order and did not come back for an additional five minutes. the wonderful beginning of the attempted fleecing began with the MP price skirt steak for 35$! skirt steak? really? after asking him to repeat the price thereafter he claimed to be "mixed up" and that the skirt steak was 22$. fine.
the salad ap came within 15. which was very good to be honest.
the wine came 25 minutes after.
the food came 10 after that.
the bread that was apparent at the tables of all else was apparently a commodity, as ours never came.
the skirt steak was literally cold to the touch, the salmon was a sad portion and also not even warm. we drank a half glass of the wine barely each. sent the food back. after telling the indignant pseudo-boratesque tool waiter that we were done here. i had to go and request the manager, who was the only nice part of the evening, after telling him briefly of the case, he absorbed the bill, apologized, and said to give the farm another try.
after which my wife and i went beast, and had a delicious and fairly priced meal - which is usual for beast.

i will NEVER again go to flatbush scams, er flatbush farms.
the worst service i have ever had in new york , terrible food , and indignant and disinterested staff - bottom line.

go anywhere else. anywhere. soda, barette, beast, anywhere. let this sore die.

Pros: quite honestly, only the manager who acknowledged our horrid service.

Cons: all. literally all.

I generally like this place. The food is good. The design of the space is good.

But the service is HORRID!

I was there for brunch recently, and we were tag teamed by a waitress and a waiter. The waiter delivered our food while holding what appeared to be a plastic bag of garbage in one hand. I can't believe that it was, but please put the bag down before delivering food! The waitress came to check in on us every few minutes, and began to clear the plates while half of us were still eating (a big pet peeve of mine that happens almost everywhere, so I try to ignore it). I couldn't ignore the fact that she reach over the plate of one of my friends, who was in mid bite, to clear the table. She then put the check down without asking if we were done, and came to check on the bill every two minutes, even though we were one of three occupied tables. I wish I could like this place more, and I wish someone would retrain the staff.

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.

Being a regular customer at The Farm for the past year, I can't help but wonder if it was another restaurant that these other reviewer's are refering to. First off, the majority of the time I have a great experience with the waitstaff, they are attentive but do not hover and sufficate the dining experience. Secondly, the food is consistently outstanding! The constant chaning of the seasonally local menu always allows for a culinary surprise. Most recently I have had the pleasure of dining on the Asapargus Spatzle, it was the best I have had in the city, and I have tried almost every restaurants Spatzle. Maybe the Chef is Austrian?

I have a love and hate relationship with flatbush farm. Finally after last night, I will not eat there again. I first ate there when they served duck confit. Now that is not on the menu. I tried everything and nothing is that good. The wait staffs are terrible. All the women dress terribly. One brunch i had a waitress that had grease all over her blouse that was too tight and showing her extra poundage.Maybe if this was a greasy dinner in n.j. but for the price they charge, they should be more presentable. That alone made me lose my appetite. Then i got the worst grits in my life that tasted like it was not cooked long enough. The waitress basically said that 's how we cook them here. Any descent restaraunt would have offer the customer to chose something else. One evening, waitress forgot an appetizer first than forgot an entree. Did not even come to the table to acknowlege it. .As in the 80's sitcom 'Alice" you can Kiss My Grits if I ever spend another penny there. the end......

Bland, bland and bland. Food was bland and service was bland to the point of nonexistent. Ambiance and dining space were both bland. I had the duck and my boyfriend had the veal. Neither of us finished our food and we took it home for the cats. The cats weren't thrilled. I ate the bread to avoid leaving hungry. I had asked the server for some duck sauce for my duck, he looked me in the eye and said, "yes" and I never saw him again. True story. I was there for at lest another 20 minutes and he kept serving people around me.
I am glad I went because now I know I am not missing anything.

I have had very positive experiences at this restaurant. I have been there three times. The first time I ate in the bar area. I had some oysters and then the lamb stew. I returned and had the chicken liver salad and a sea bass special with corn succotash. Most recently I had their burger. All of the food was very good, well seasoned, though not inexpensive. If you are looking for a cheap takeout meal, look elsewhere, I would say this is quality stuff.

Their back yard is spectacular on a summer evening. I have had none of the service issues that others have discussed. I usually drink beer when I go, but I have noticed the wine served in tumblers, which I never care for. I have not tried the desserts. I give it 4 stars in general, minus one for the tumblers and plus one for the backyard.

where do i begin, the service was horrible, it was like i was doing them a favor for being there and should shutup. i think my waiter got lost because i didnt see him for a good 45 minutes. the food , well, lets just say i left the farm and walked across the street to eat. I also noticed there menu kept mentioning charcuterie. i cant help but think about the deli next door that used to be named charcuterie. i believe they moved across the street. I looked up what charcuterie means because i was curious why they used the name, turns out it means butcher shop in french, so im not sure why they have dishes using that name. all in all i feel like i wasted my money and time.

The first time I went to this restaurant they had horrible service - the second time I went hoping that they were only having an off day the first time- their service sucked! At least they are consistent in that regard. I went there for brunch one Sunday with friends and we were seated on arrival which was the only plus of the afternoon. We ordered orange juice from our waitress and waited and waited. She then came to take the order and I asked her where the orange juice was (she had forgotten and so comped the juice). We ordered our meal and when it arrived part of it was missing - we brought that to the attention of our waitress and she appologized and went back to the kitchen (she forgot to put the order in)- she then brought out the wrong item after only moments before telling her what it was. Finally, we just told her to forget it. After that it was almost as though we had an invisible table - we had to constantly call her over to get either water or another fork or something (aren't the wait staff supposed to check on their tables?) The last straw came after we ordered tea at the end of our meal - we watched as our waitress walked back and forth throughout the restaurant for 15 minutes and never came back to the table ( I am still waiting for the tea.) Disgusted, we called another waiter who happened to be walking by and asked him to bring the check - which he did. I can only assume that when our original waitress realized that the bill was about to be settled and the time for getting a tip was at hand she was miraculously present and accounted for. Too bad since she didn't get a tip (I don't tip for shoddy service) - and I left a note on the check explaining that fact both to her and the manager or owner so that they would know it is not ok to run such a slip shod operation.

I was skeptical about going after reading some of these reviews about the bad service, but was pleasantly surprised when I went for dinner last night. The service was fine and the food was very good. I had the spetzle as an appetizer and it was delicious (worth going back just for that), and the chicken as the entree which was pretty good (the garlic mashed potatoes were yummy). Everyone else enjoyed their meal as well. I would recommend going there in a small group-- not a kids place and not necessarily a cozy romantic place either. But if you support local organic food, this place is definitely worth a try.

The service at this establishment is pretty crappy, can't really emphasize that point enough times. I went over there with my boyfriend on a Saturday night. Keep in mind, the place was pretty empty. He got there before me and was seated in the back with a menu and drink list. By they time I arrived, he'd been sitting there 5 minutes already with no signs of a server. We then proceeded to wait another 15 minutes before he got up to see what the deal was with our server. We were then informed that they were now serving from the BAR menu next door, so we basically wasted time checking out a menu that was no longer in use I can understand when things are busy and it's hard to get to patrons when your busy running around. However, it wasn't that busy in fact it was pretty empty, and that's just inexcusable.

The fact is there are so many places in Park Slope and around Ft. Greene it doesn't make sense to visit an establishment that has such crappy service. If I were the owners and managers of Flatbush Farm, I would sit down and read these comments and take into account how much business they may have lost because of bad service.

The service at this establishment is pretty crappy, can't really emphasize that point enough times. I went over there with my boyfriend on a Saturday night. Keep in mind, the place was pretty empty. He got there before me and was seated in the back with a menu and drink list. By they time I arrived, he'd been sitting there 5 minutes already with no signs of a server. We then proceeded to wait another 15 minutes before he got up to see what the deal was with our server.

Pros: Food was ok

Cons: BAD SERVICE

I dined here last night with my boyfriend and a very good friend. I had the spaetzle appetizer as an entree and the lemon verbena panna cotta. The spaetzle was decent and featured a good variety of vegetables, but I would have liked it a little spicier. There was no ground pepper on our table, nor were we offered any with our meals. The panna cotta was satisfying and simple, and my companions enjoyed their meals. The worst was the service. Even though we were the only diners left in the main section of the restaurant and we had already ordered tea and dessert, our server took about 20 minutes to hand us our check! He stared over at us from across the room, then proceeded to sit down at the bar and chat with a colleague for five minutes instead of heeding our constant glances. He recited most of the specials from the list he had in his pocket, and the only thing he knew much about was the music. Places like this need staff who are both passionate and knowledgeable about local agriculture, sustainability, and the like. Flatbush Farm seems to be a wonderful idea plagued by poor execution. It's a great concept and I wish I could give it more stars, but the expense and the poor service just aren't worth it.

Pros: Organic and locally sourced ingredients

Cons: Price, service

I went to Flatbush Farm this past weekend with a friend, based on some good reviews we read. Upon entering the establishment we were seated promptly in the front of the restaurant. After receiving our menus we waited a good fifteen minutes before we were offered to order a beverage. By that time we realized it would be a good idea to order our entire meal as not to wait for the waitress to come back for our dinner order. We waited another ten minutes with our drinks nowhere in sight. I flagged down a different waitress and told her to inform our server that our beverages had not arrived. Five minutes later the waitress I flagged down walked by. I asked about our drinks and she said she forgot all about it and would tell our server. Five more minutes passed by before we got our drinks. I am talking about two beers, nothing difficult. The appetizers came and they were fine. Our Entrees came and they were fine as well, except that they forgot our side of grits. Through all this time nobody ever came by our table to ask if everything was okay. At this point dessert was out of the question. I payed my bill and left a commenserate tip.
In a city with so many wonderful choices, there is no reason to eat at Flatbush Farm.

My boyfriend and I stopped in for Brunch based on a recomendation. Everything normal. Service, fine, food comes, fine. There was a gnat in my plate but we were sitting by the window so I thought maybe it crawled in through there. Whatever. These things happen. My boyfriend's dish (toad in the hole?) came with a salad on the plate. After eating a bit of the main dish he starts the salad and then cuts into something. He moves a leaf over and it's a BAND-AIDE. Used. Like the kind that had been wrapped around someone's finger. GROSS. The waiter wasn't around so we got the host. He was appropriately digusted. But still. GROSS. He asks if there's anything he can do. Um. Turn back time? Erase this from our memories? Offer a Hepatitis shot?

Don't bother. With so many good restaurants out there, give this one a miss. Food is ok, but nothing special. Owner was rude to us because we complained that one table was insanely loud. Instead of saying the generic, "I'll see what I can do" he told us that many restaurants in NY are loud." I won't go back and I certainly will dissuade people from going.

I would love to write words of praise for this establishment especially since it?s one of the only decent places located on Flatbush but I can?t. Three times now I have visited Flatbush Farms on a Sunday afternoon and received horrible service. From what I observe you need to either be the bartender?s girlfriend or the owner?s friend to get any service. Today in a bar of less than twenty people, I had to flag down someone for each of my drinks, my food order and then my check. The bartender was chatting with friends, slowly making drinks for people he knew, and not making any eye contact with any guest to make sure if they were ok. He was later joined by two other bartenders and they still couldn?t get their act together. A couple standing next to me at the bar, who was dining outside, stood for over 20 minutes waiting for their check. They discussed with me and my friend how they could just leave and that they too had terrible service. I am only writing this now because I have had the exact same awful service two other times and at some point shouldn?t this establishment start changing their service or losing their clientele? I won?t be back that?s for sure.

Pros: Good location, good food

Cons: On going bad service at the bar not worth it at all.

The menu is about basic food done well - which I'd say they were successful with. The restaurant wait staff is iffy - my advice for brunch is to sit in the tall dark-haired woman's area because she's really knowledgeable and helpful and willing to work with you to make sure you get what you want. According to a friend, there are staff members not like that. I've gotten the biscuit and gravy a few times with great luck

The bar section is fabulous - the beer and wine selections are good and the bartenders are knowledgeable and able to make good spontaneous cocktails based on your preferences. Prices are good for the qualilty. The crowd is relaxed and chill so it's a really comfortable place to just sit, talk and drink nice cocktails.

After having dinner here more than once, I can firmly say, I have had a pleasant dining experience every time I?ve been. The food is the freshest around (they're known for getting everything on the menu from the farmer's markets around town), and it's delicious as well. The specials are always the way to go, but their duck is so tender and the risotto so fresh, you can't go wrong (plus, their chicken is moist and mouth-watering). The prices are a little much for a restaurant on Flatbush Avenue, but the neighborhood is changing, and the restaurant is leading the way. The inside is romantic and cosy with a beautiful bar (check out the chandeliers) and their drink list is fantastic with beers you don?t usually see around at restaurants and quality wines. And, when you?ve finished with your food, you can head next door to the bar which is just as lovely with a dark ambience and quality drinks.

What a great spot! I tried a few of their dinner offerings when they first opened, most were really good except for the chicken terrine, which tasted like unseasoned boiled chicken. Yesterday we had the most delightful brunch at FF. The blueberry buckwheat pancakes with vanilla syrup were scrumptious - thin, stretchy and just slightly sweet. We loved the 1/2 inch slice of bacon that came withe the expertly prepared eggs and cheese grits. The bloody seemed to have some sort of an unusual spice in it, but it was still really good - not too thick, not too salty, just right.

We are thrilled that some good food has opened up near our place on St. Marks. The food here is warm delicious. I have had the speatzle and the goulash a few times. We have been there 5 times since they opened - and openings can always be a bit bumby. They are in need of a few things. They need a busboy. They need to stock the sugar and cream ahead of service on Sundays. They need a curtain at the front door. and since they have wine bottles that are in the $60 - to $80 price range, they need actual wine glasses instead of just tumblers. If they can sort out the disorganization at the front of the house - this place will be a keeper!

Amazing bar, burger, backyard, beautiful Brooklyn crowd and staff, and one of the few spots you can get a fernet-branca and coke.

Try the mo'stomy. It's a mix between a mojito and a dark and stormy with fresh mint and ginger. So good. My friend and I ate there the other night and had the french dip and the duck. The french dip is delicious, very succulent a little spicy an all around good time. The duck was perfectly cooked. I love that this restaurant is in the neighborhood and I plan to visit it often. You should too.
