I generally limit my Tripadvisor reviews (almost 300) to lodgings---only do restaurants when they are extraordinarily good or bad. We were on a two week trip, and found ourselves in Farmington for a night. 12 West was the most highly rated Farmington restaurant on Tripadvisor, but expectations still weren't that high. Wow, were we surprised at how good this place... More

Love the eggs benadict, so many different ones to try, also the quiche is fantastic. The building is in the old part of town, but they have brought out the best in the old brick facade, very chic.

The restaurant is a lovely restored space in downtown Farmington. Good wine list, varied menu. The meatball appetizer was really interesting and quite good. We had sandwiches which were excellent. Wine was very good. Service excellent. We were lucky and were seated at one of the couch booths near the windows. Charming. Taking some out of town friends tomorrow.

The service was on point. The waiter suggested the perfect dishes for us. The shrimp po boy and the small plate shrimp dish. Both were delicious and made us think we needed to come back the next night! Perfect place for a great date night.

I was by my self and sat at the bar. The service was very quick and professional and the atmosphere it very nice. This is what I like; casual fine dining. When I looked at the menu I was surprised by the great variety of unique items. I had the Southern Shrimp Po Boy, give it a try.

I took my 97-year-old aunt and nephew out to lunch on a beautiful Saturday afternoon we sat out on a nice patio the food was excellent and the service was excellent and to just disagree with some of these other reviews I have read I thought the prices were reasonable. The server whose name I believe was Brent was very... More

A little more expensive for a small town restaurant but so very good. The food was fantastic, as was the service and the drinks. The fried green tomatoes were perfect. My husband enjoyed the duck immensely and the potato soup was also delicious. We went twice during a four day visit to see family and will definitely go back when... More
