 (San Francisco)·Dined 6 days ago

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.

Visiting campus with 3 prospective students and parents in tow. Party of 7.

Staff was very accommodating and welcoming. A very warm and friendly experience.

The menu was fun and diverse, something for everyone. Food quality was fantastic... Best meal of our trip to Bloomington.

Strong recommend. We will be back.

wonderful spot close to campus. the brunch was creative and very tasty. The chef made a point to go around several time and talk to each table. Nice touch for a casual brunch location. Looking forward to going back!

Enjoyed a date night at The Farm on Saturday night. Menu had changed from the last time we dined here. It is a creative menu with a mix of options. I'm vegetarian and have found a lot of choices both times we've dined at The Farm. Lighting could be a little more dim (if you are coming here on a date night night). Service was good but seemed to get better after we ordered an $80 bottle of wine. The wine list is good but it is expensive! Not a lot of mid-priced bottles. Menu creativity will keep us coming back. A good experience.

Table for 6 up front is too crowded, too noisy, and the water kept trying to take our dishes before we were done regardless of what we had to say. The food, which is usually very good, was pretty meh.

ckearly it was an off day for them, but we’re not going back for a while.

We’ve been going for almost as long as they have been open, and will continue to go. The food is fantastic, and Chef Daniel Orr knows how to make a meal memorable. If you are going for the first time, try going for an early dinner on Wednesday for the fried chicken.

The food is plentiful and delicious and service was good. My husband had the prime rib and it was amazing! Other items we tried were mushrooms and shrimp. We always enjoy our meal when dining at Farm! Only downside is noisy surroundings making it difficult to have a conversation. There is nothing to muffle the sound of other diners and the loud music playing .

I have been to this restaurant many times, but a year ago and last week the food has not been up to par. Not sure what has happened in the Kitchen but they need to straighten it out real fast. Pork chop was over cooked, purple or black potatoes were not worth eating. Salmon was good but brought out too cool.

Wine selection could use some work.

We go here every time one of us visits our son at college - it seems, and I could be wrong, that either the prices have inched up or the portions have gotten smaller - or both - not sure, but something felt really different this time.

Only complaint is that I couldn't make my own omelet. I was limited to whatever the omelet of the day was. It made sticking to my diet a little difficult.

Experienced Farm for the 1st time. We had a 5pm reservation and were seated promptly. After over 10 minutes waiting for anyone to approach our table I stopped the manager who we noticed passing by and made him aware of this. Now, I don't usually mind waiting five minutes or so for someone to come to our table but we couldn't even make eye contact with anyone and various other parties arriving after us were be served. It was just odd and perhaps we ended up at a table with no one assigned to it. Things happen! The manager did remedy this and actually moved us to another table (which by the way ended up by the front window and if it is cold outside it permeates in to this area as well). Our server was attentive and courteous. Our dinner was prepared well but I felt the bone-in pork chop was perhaps a little tough. Everything else was fine. We enjoyed the ambiance and vibe of this place and wouldn't mind giving it another try on our next visit to Bloomington as there appear to be a lot of positives from other diners.

Delicious "Seafood Saturday" special of scallops. Would love to go back if I am in the area. It did take about 45 mins to get our meal, but we were prepared to have a longer meal while at FARMbloomington. The actual space is very cool, lots of quirky decor that makes it fun. Cocktails are a delicious plus!

We had brunch on a Saturday. The restaurant was very busy so reservations are recommended. I had the seasonal skillet, which was delicious. My husband had the Hoosier potane and he said it was awesome. The service was prompt and friendly and the coffee refills were plentiful.
