    A wonderful place to dine! Reservations were easy with Open Table and we were seated promptly. The service was impeccable from start to finish. The food was delectable in taste as it was in presentation. Salad ingredients were fresh and the accompanying sauces/dressings were tantalizingly colorful and tasty, not overpowering the fresh garden taste. The ambiance had a warm and cozy feel, great for intimate dining as well as casual conversation. The bathrooms were clean as was the overall impression of the restaurant. There was an included 18% gratuity on the bill, which is well deserved, with an optional additional tip if desired. A beautiful dining experience! Thank you!

    Amazing venue, great food. Only complaint was they forgot our drink but didn’t charge us for it after bringing it. The waitress felt really bad. We absolutely will go back.

    We were very excited to come here, but left disappointed. First, they ended up being out of the gluten free flatbread dough, which was nobody’s fault, but was disappointing. Found something else to order, and we’re offered gluten free bread on the side to make it a bit more substantial. We assumed it would be a few dollars if not free, but they charged $7 for 2 slices of gluten free bread, and we were not told there would be such a significant up charge. Gluten free bread on the cheese board was an extra $3 and the gluten free flatbread was an extra $4. But $7? For what we didn’t actually want? In addition, the drinks felt less like cocktails and more like coolers. All and all, you are better off at other local date night spots.

    Overpriced and snobby! Poor service, we waited for about an hour to even ask for drinks. I get that there is a place for this style, and I am so happy that many people appreciate it. Best wishes! Also, we had reserved a table for 4, and mentioned in the reservation that we were doing date night, but when we were seated they refused to offer it, saying that it was only valid for a table of 2. We did not know that and it didn't say that either. We stayed and enjoyed appetizers. But we would have ended up spending more money had we been treated to the date night experience, and would have been more satisfied, but whatever, rulz are rulz, hatrz gonna hate, whatevs. Prob would not go back to Farmer's Bottega again, this was my 3rd and last visit.

    Food is always great there but prices have gone up significantly that it has become not worth it anymore to pay that much for a plate of pasta.

    We really loved this restaurant. We will come back the next time we are in town. We were seated in the patio area. It was a beautiful evening with the hanging lights and heaters going. Love all the plants that surround the area. Very romantic. Our lamb shanks were delicious.

    The food was good and the outside area has been decorated nicely. Unfortunately, it was very loud, but once a few of the big parties left, we were able to converse easier. But at that time the waitress asked us to leave, as we were approaching a 2-hour limit and they needed our table. Prior to this, she wasn't the most attentive wait person and seemed to be put out by our requests. First time we were ever asked to leave...

    Sat outside. Service was a bit lacking, as one server with two bussers handled a 6 top, four 2 tops, and two 4-tops. Food was quick and tasty, though not very intriguing. Good for comfort food, not really pushing any limits in terms of flavor, technique, or presentation. Main dishes are plenty for one meal. The charred octopus was out. Cocktails were a bit on the pricey end for what you got.

    Easily one of the best dining experiences I’ve had this year. The atmosphere on the patio is cute, quiet, welcoming. The food was perfectly cooked, the table couldn’t stop talking about the grilled octopus, salmon special, shrimp arrabbiata. And the drinks were inventive and delicious. We’ll certainly be back to this hidden gem in mission hills soon.

    All five of us really enjoyed our meals. Our server Eric was nice enough and competent, despite being quite busy. Eric's support however (the food runner), was flatly a rude jerk. Other than this one ogre, who ownership should not put anywhere near guests, it was a very enjoyable dinner/evening :-)

    Farmers Bottega has consistently delivered: foods good but not too precious; drinks are top notch but not weird; we sit outside which is comfortable; service is friendly, quick, and helpful; and we’ve never had a bad meal or dish in the 3-4 times we’ve been over the last two years.

    The four of us had an enjoyable and delicious meal outside on the back patio after a play at the Old Globe. The "burnt carrot" salad was delish (perhaps a bit too small for sharing). Both the artichoke ravioli and cavatelli were yummy! I enjoyed the apple vodka drink with lemon, basil, and jalapeno....not sweet but refreshing! We will definitely return.

    Restaurant is in Hillcrest. Parking on Thursday around six wasn’t bad at all. We ended up a little ways down the street but it was a nice walk. Ordered the Vegetable Napoleon, Salmon (fish of the day), and a red sauce pasta dish (I can’t remember the name). I had a blackberry lemonade which was insanely good. One of the best drinks I’ve had in a while. Super light and refreshing. The food in general isn’t super heavy and just really enjoyable atmosphere.
