Had an early dinner. The raw fluke with assorted spices and chopped marinated vegetables was very good. My girl had the shrimp, and declined to share. I had the stripper that was perfectly prepared. Meal was nicely paced, and the service professional and relaxed. The ambiance were great

F&F is a small eatery with a seasonal menu; they get much of their produce from small farms within Philadelphia. The quality of the food is top-notch; everything is fresh and bursting with flavor and most of the menu items are quite creative. The staff are very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions and discuss the menu at length, which we appreciated. The pace of the meal was unhurried, which we also appreciated as we enjoyed our bottle of wine (it's BYOB, which is common in Philadelphia due to medieval limits on liquor licenses). Portions and prices are moderate; I had three courses for about $40 and was comfortably full. The only odd bit was that as soon as we finished our food, they asked us to go outside to finish our wine because there were people waiting for our table (there were several empty tables). Aside from that, the experience was terrific, but it ended on a strange note.

What a great addition to the Gayborhood. This charming little BYO is just what the doctor ordered. The food is seasonal, fresh and delicious, served with care, and worth every penny. If only every neighborhood had a spot like this.

It was a real test of dexterity to get out of one's coat without bumping other diners or wait staff. This place could use a foyer, as well as a coat closet. Don't accept the table right in front of the bathroom door unless you want to be distracted by a steady stream of people entering and exiting the bathroom behind your dining companion while you're trying to have a conversation with him or her. The dishes we tried were indicative of a creator who wants to fly before mastering walking. The signature first course dish (bloody beet steak) included a bottom layer of something reminiscent of a decaying autumn leaf, most likely the skin of the beets. The risotto was chalky in the center and quite bland, not nearly as good as risotto one can prepare at home. Judging from my experience, this place is for people who want to pretend to enjoy what they think is sophisticated food. On the plus side, the wait staff were exceptional.

Other than the non-parallel construction of the restaurant name, which annoyed my grammatically minded girlfriend, The Farm and Fisherman got everything right. The chef revises the menu every night based on what ingredients are fresh. All of the appetizers were tempting, but my girlfriend and I decided to start with a plate of mushrooms and a 24 hour roasted squash. The chef later told us that the mushrooms had been recently gathered by forager in rural Pennsylvania who had to sleep out in his car for two nights. The effort was worth it, we really enjoyed. We shared a middle course of slow cooked tuna and then moved onto a steak and a chicken for our main course. Overall, the food was probably the best I have ever had in Philadelphia. The restaurant is small, but manages to feel cozy rather than cramped. Assuming that I am able to get another reservation, I will be back.

The best farm to table in Philadelphia, hands down. Chef Josh Lawler and crew make you feel at home.
