My husband and I ordered. He had a buffalo burger and I thought I ordered broiled salmon. The waitress misunderstood. We had waited at least 30 minutes before food was brought out. They corrected the mistake and I waited another ten minutes. My husband also waited until my order was served. We weren’t charged for my order, but his with fruit and coffees for us was overpriced.

We love FARM! I was disappointed that the items on the kids menu for brunch were all lunch entrees. My children would've eaten breakfast food much better!

We were excited to be able to get a reservation to do some early celebrating for our son's upcoming graduation. There were five of us for brunch on Sunday. It's a lovely, fun restaurant and the meal would have been perfect if not for our server. He never cracked a smile, he never showed any interest in us and in fact we felt like he would rather be anywhere else on earth than waiting on us. We were a friendly group, didn't make any weird requests, we were polite etc. He just seemed to be bothered and inconvenienced to be our server. Unfortunately this overshadowed our dining experience. Our son really wanted to eat there- really wanted those fries and we were happy to take him and his girlfriend out to celebrate. All of our meals were wonderful but we still left with a bad taste in our mouth. It's a shame that this is what we will remember.

Food
Fun, different offerings, fresh, tasty

Service
Friendly, sometimes prompt, sometimes not. We had two minor mishaps: 1. In ordering, I inquired about the chili lime mahi as I am very sensitive to spice. She checked with the chef and said it has a cajun flavor, mild, but cajun so I ordered the salmon since I reiterated I cannot handle any spice and did not want to take a chance. Later when we ordered, I ordered the garlic fries for the table (heard great reviews). I should have noticed the chili flakes, but also would have been nice for her knowing from our earlier conversation that I cannot handle anything spicy, to have mentioned the chili flakes, and that we can order without them. We ended up picking the flakes off the fries and didn't eat many of them (as that became tedious). 2. They delivered two entrees and assumed the third entree was following (they didn't say anything, but we assumed the third entree was following). It was at least 7 minutes later that we waited and flagged down our waitress inquiring, that we finally got the third entree.

All our food was delicious (except the chili flakes on the fries - if you like spice, then great, but if not, make sure to order w/o the chili flakes).

An all-around great experience once again. The food never disappoints. The creativity, freshness and presentation are always great. Although there are some lower-priced items, it's easy to suddenly find yourself spending way more than you planned simply because the selections are so tempting. So, beware: This is not a budget option, but it is a great option when you're willing to bust the budget for something special ... or be REALLY careful about what you order.

You know, this is the 3rd time I have made reservations for this place. All 3 times I have had confirmed reservations. The 1st t8me, it was for m6 wife and some friends. They showed up and the restaurant did no5 recall the reservation and it became a big hassle. The 2nd time, they called about 2 days before and cancelled it for me due to them having oversold (this was on 2017). And now, my wife and I made reservations. The day of the dinner, they call and tell me that they are sorry, but they need to cancel. This cannot be happening.

To their credit, the first time they called and left a voicemail. They called back again and asked if i5 was alright. I said that I did not know what choice I had and that it was not alright. I explained to the woman that called why I was upset. She said “oh well”. I could not believe it. Well, this is baseball season and this is FarmBloomington’s third strike. I am walking away from the plate because the inning is over.

Spring break - ate out five nights in a row while doing college visits.

Food was just OK - spotty at best. Service was not great. Cocktails were excellent. Too bad, was looking forward to a nice evening.

Mighty fine coffee.
Friendly staff, helpful recommendations.
Firm, tasty bisquits that hold up well to preserves. Rhubarb strawberry was by far the best. Peach-lavendar very faint flavor. Apple butter had more of an Indian spice profile.
Omelet I choose had fresh asparagus, tarragon, fresh peas and brie. Egg was a little rubbery but tasted fine. Accompanied by red potatoes, onions and bell pepper. Maybe I should have tried the quiche.
Husband had the poutine; french fries, white gravy, sausage bits and cheese curds. Very large serving, he couldn't finish. Loved the flavor, little heavy on cheese.
Took a pecan sticky bun to go. Should have passed on this item, 8.00 dollars, large and impressive but didn't deliver on flavor or texture. Tasted more like plain, dry overbaked bread than a sweet roll dough. The roll was covered with a thick gooey orange colored caramel that sort of tasted like whiskey, not a buttery caramel. A sprinkling of pecans topped of the roll.
Pretty to look at but meh, sorry.
Overall still a five for other items.
Take home a jar of strawberry rhubarb preserves.

I think my food must have been sitting for awhile, as it was very lukewarm by the time I got it. My boyfriend's food was nice and hot. I ordered a drink, and the bartender must have forgotten, as I got the drink near the end of my meal.

As always, a meh experience. Menu never changes, food is boring and uninspiring. Went for their garlic parm fries and biscuits and the biscuits, while massive, were heavy and overworked. They also ran out of their strawberry-rhubarb jam, which is insane. They used to be so, so ethereal

UPDATE: the manager actually reached out to us about our previous experience that I wrote about. We ended up going to the restaurant for a second chance, and we’re glad we did. We ordered the fries everyone talks about and they were delicious (huge serving too). We also got the pizzas, which were great! Even though it’s not a pizza place, we agreed that the pizzas were the best pizza in Bloomington BY FAR. So tasty!

We had a reservation for valentine’s day and when we got there they told us they were closed until 5 and didn’t have our 4 PM reservation. I showed them my reservation number and the app and they didn’t care or have anything to do about it and told us they didn’t have any openings for later on. When we checked open table, they did have listed openings for later on, but we avoided since they failed the first time and clearly didn’t have their stuff together. Annoying.
