Every single entree (5) was a
winner. The vegetable sides had so much flavor and were of the highest quality. The fries had an great mix of flavors set off with a hint of lemon. I will be back time and again to try everything on this menu."

The presentation of everything
from location, ambiance, to food was perfection. The only problem was the food was not as amazing. The filet mignon was fatty, which I wouldn't expect, and had to skip big portions! The fried fish was very bland, and there was no kick to the tarter sauce. I'm gonna give it another shot and order something different to see if I just got unlucky. The desserts seemed right out of a box. Gosh, I wish I had something better to say. It just wasn't my night."

Farmbloomington is a great find.
The food was amazing and service excellent! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves good food. The garlic french fries with the homemade chipolte ketsup were fantastic."

We started with the garlic fries,
which were good, not spectacular, and the serving was way too large for two people. I had the Eggplant FARMesan, which was an eggplant parmesan (not fried) served with greens. I did not enjoy this dish, but I ate it because it cost $18. The skin was left on the eggplant and the only part I enjoyed was the marinara. My husband had the Lugar burger which was good, but not great. We both agree that Feast makes a much better burger (also with local, organic ingredients). The best part of my meal was the good life salad. We planned on having bread pudding for dessert, but apparently it was still baking at 6 p.m., so we decided to take the check and go elsewhere."

We took my mother here for her
87th birthday and had a pleasant lunch, as usual. The portions for lunch are substantial. Always a great place for a meal of something different."
Dined on 7/15/2014
The food was all excellent, we had
both dinner and brunch there during our stay. My only issue is that they still serve HFCS laden soda - which made me question how much stuff in the kitchen was not local sourced either. Beyond that the place is great and I 100% support what they are trying to accomplish - farm to table is awesome!"

FARM is a nice addition to
downtown eateries. Appreciated that since the Buskirk Chumley play was out a little early that we were seated earlier than our original reservation. Will keep FARM on the mind for a special treat."

It was a wonderful dining
experience. It has become one of our favorites."
Dined on 6/20/2014
Great food! We had the pizzas and
very tasty. I had daddy chicken. It was a lot of food and very good. I wish it was boneless. It was hard to eat. The salad needed to be served separate from the hot chicken."
Dined on 6/15/2014
The Farm has been on the
Bloomington bucket list for a while. Started dinner with two cocktails then ordered appetizers. The Parmesan Garlic Fries are out of this world (Maybe best in the world?). Also, received the fried green tomatoes sliders(2). Both of these appetizers were delicious. We then ordered a pizza (to go) and the Spicy Mushroom Po - Boy. Every dish was excellently put together and the flavors, oh the flavors. Highly recommend either for cocktails and french fries, brunch, lunch, or dinner. "

The Sunday Brunch is always
excellent. My wife try to eat at FARMbloomington whenever we stay over after a game. The biscuits are worthy calories and the Bacon Egg Pizza is a must try for anyone who has not been to FARM (worthy calories too). Victor was our server this past Sunday. He was helpful and attentive, without hovering. Good job Victor!"

We came from Indy for an event in
Bloomington with a party of six. Although we couldn't get reservations via Open Table, we took a chance and were surprised to be seated immediately. The food was terrific and the service excellent. We will be back!"
Dined on 5/30/2014
The food was everything we had
hoped! We have heard nothing but good things about FARM and were so excited to finally try it out. The night we went, the entire menu was made up and prepared by the Sous chefs and did not disappoint. We will definitely be going back!"
Dined on 5/25/2014
After a 53 minute wait for our
meals, and a good 10-15 for each round of (inconsistent) cocktails, we were happily surprised with the quality of our brunch. Unfortunately, the service was so poor that we question whether we would go back again. "
Dined on 5/24/2014
We don't get to Bloomington for
dinner often, so when we do, FARM is my destination of choice. I love the colorful, creative decor- "FARM FUN" but not country and relaxed atmosphere. We had an excellent waiter informative, helpful but concise. I had the wild mushroom and sweet pea risotto which was creamy and delicious, topped with a little crunchy bacon or some type of yummy fat for a hint of saltiness. My husband enjoyed the pizza which has pleasantly thin crust topped with goat cheese and banana peppers - nice lightly spicy combination. When we asked what time the restaurant opened the next morning for coffee, our waiter bragged on their excellent house blend and brought us a sample - nice touch! "

three of us had trout it was very
good. excellent bread pudding"
Dined on 5/17/2014
Our table was inches from our
neighbors in a linear arrangement on a Saturday night. I was closer to the guy next to me than to my wife, sitting across the table. Food was good but too heavily spiced, peppered and salted for my wife. Service was very slow due to our waiter training another. He was so distracted we were not offered desert and we were in the mood for it to neutralize the spicy food. We went for desert and coffee elsewhere."
Dined on 5/17/2014
This was a fun find down in
Bloomington, IN for Mother's Day. The food was good, but a bit pricey for the experience. My pork loin was tasty and unique, but my wife's beef filet was a bit overcooked. The fries and bread pudding were outstanding. The service was good, but could use some refinement."

We are a big fan of Farm and have
had many lovely meals there, however we were disappointed with the Graduation Brunch menu. The options were limited and did not include some of the menu favorites - and most importantly did not include ANY choices for the meat and potatoes diner - which put a damper on our family meal!! We've done prix fixe during restaurant week in Miami and Grand Rapids, and always felt we were getting great value and delicious choices. This was not the case on Saturday - our food was served lukewarm and had to be reheate (at $25 one expects better quality and presentation) and we were at our table 15 minutes or more before our drinks were served - "
Dined on 5/10/2014
We went for the special graduation
night dinner, which set us back about $80 each, including a round of drinks, but not the tip. The food was not even close to adequate for that amount of money in Bloomington. An overdressed tiny salad with one little shred of fennel, then my chicken was so dry I could not eat it. The DOG had trouble choking it down when I took it home. My wife's beef/noodle special was no better than what you could make at home from canned ingredients. Service was random - lot of lost-looking servers wandering around, but our server was mostly missing until it was time to pay. We have given Farm a lot of chances - it was once one of the best places in town, but this was the last straw. Never again."

We ate at FARM during IU's
graduation weekend and, as expected, they were really busy. We had problems with service in that we were eating our appetizer when our deserts were delivered. I had a soft drink and asked for a refill which never came. I think the servers were just overwhelmed."
Dined on 5/9/2014
We ate here before a show at the
Bluebird. It is such a cool place, the décor, the people-we absolutely loved it and wish that there was one up here in Indianapolis. We shared the French Fries and the flank steak entrée and of course some cake. The portions were generous and I recommend sampling the local beers and strange as it may sound, the lemonade. It was so satisfying."
Dined on 5/4/2014
Our first time at FARMbloomington.
Nice selection of beers and wine. Loud on a Friday evening. Fun, eclectic crowd. Whimsical decorations. Food was good, but not quite as good as I expected based on word of mouth from friends. We'll return, but we'll keep our expectations more realistic."

Booked reservations for a birthday
luncheon; they were ready to seat us upon arrival - Great! Ordered the garlic fries; they were out in a flash and delicious - Great! Ordered meals and they arrived in an expedient fashion - Great! Pasta dish and pizza were very good, as usual - Great! Chicken was not up to par with previous visits... coating was burnt and altered the taste negatively - Poor! Had plans after lunch, so had to decline the waitresses offer to bring more chicken out - Great customer service,though! Waitress brought a free dessert for the table to share, as 2 of us had obviously not enjoyed our meals - Very nice! Sad that the birthday boy had a bad meal, but we will be back, as food quality at this venue is typically excellent!"

Farm does very nice updated
versions of traditional local dishes. I love that idea and appreciate Chef Orr's flavor choices. "
Dined on 4/20/2014
I was there on a very busy day and
despite that the service was very good. Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. Food was excellent! Ambiance is fun!!"
Dined on 4/20/2014
Very good wine at a reasonable
price, the food however is a little overpriced."

We had a recommendation to eat
here from a parent of an IU student. Great idea. We were able to add 2 more people to our reservation with no problem and our service was excellent. The cocktails were fun and inspired as well as the menu. Delicious and fresh, we will definitely return if our daughter makes IU her college choice. Sure hope she does :) "

As long as you're adventurous,
FARM has something for you. The hummus or garlic fries are a great starter. She had the risotto which was fantastic. Good consistency and flavor. I had the cowboy filet with ghost pepper, good heat and the meat was cooked smack on medium rare. Dessert was a perfect finish, the meringue was unlike anything I'd ever had. Very light and sweet. Perfect for when you're full, but can't pass up a treat. I highly recommend this to everyone who has the chance to go to FARM. "

My husband and I showed up to
celebrate his birthday at one of our Bloomington favorites, but right after we ordered appetizers, he got deathly ill. The staff handled it so graciously. The pastry chef presented the beautiful and delicious birthday cake we had ordered all boxed up for us to take home and the waitress rushed a to-go order for me to eat later (which also was delicious). We will definitely be back to celebrate properly."
Dined on 4/10/2014
Reservations allowed us to walk
past dozens waiting for a delightful brunch. We had cocktail specials, great entrees and a fantastic dessert. Very reasonable, funky farm house decor, great server, and lots of young people having a great time. Can't beat it. We will be back."
Dined on 4/6/2014
This is probably Bloomington's
best all-around restaurant. That's saying a lot, because there's plenty of competition! You'll never be disappointed in the food, the service is great, and Chef Orr will always have a surprise."
Dined on 3/30/2014
Farm is one of our favorite
places. We eat there almost every time we are in Bloomington. The food is always excellent and we like the aesthetic. We have absolutely no complaints about the food or drinks. However, our server was aloof and inattentive. She acted as if she were annoyed to even take our order, let alone bring us drinks, check back on us, etc. Despite this, we had an enjoyable time with amazing food. I had the fun-guy po boy and my husband had the chicken and jalepeno-cornbread waffles special, which he could not stop talking about the rest of the night."
Dined on 3/28/2014
Delicious food, dessert and
service. Excellent drinks!! Charming ambiance. Good price for value. Farm to table ingredients. Everybody loved their entree."
Dined on 2/15/2014
I reserved a table ahead of time
and got in right away. Our server was very nice and efficient! I ordered the pork and my date ordered the chicken and both were FANTASTIC! So many great choices on the menu that you can't go wrong with any of them! I love FARM and would highly recommend to anyone. It's truly a local gem because it showcases food grown locally! Definitely will be going again."
Dined on 2/15/2014
Asked for cheddar to replace goat
cheese in my omelet. Was told he would try but the chef doesn't like substitutions unless you are allergic. NOT cool. Traditional bread pudding extremely dry. Our table was way too close to those on either side. Could hear every word of strangers conversations. To be fair they were preparing for a crowd for Valentine's dinner and we were there for lunch. Garlic fries very good. Atmosphere charming."
Dined on 2/14/2014
We had reservations and were
seated as soon as we arrived. Our server Josh was great, he was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We enjoyed it!!"
Dined on 2/8/2014
Food was excellent, but décor is
really busy and distracting. Our server was also working as the bartender, and service was sometimes slow. We've wanted to try Farm and are glad we did, but we wouldn't go again."
Dined on 2/8/2014
We had a moderate experience. Food
was OK, but our waitress was not good. She messed up our payment and misled us that it would be resolved. Took 6 days of follow-up before we received the correction. Would only recommend if you are going for a basic meal and paying cash."
Dined on 2/1/2014
Simply prepared food but very
good. Truffle fries with aioli were quite good. Organic, local food with good service. We were there for lunch, but Cocktail and dinner menu looks great as well."
