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!
Service was very slow. Chicken breast was dry but others enjoyed their meals.
Service was great. Soup and salad very tasty.
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.
Great food in a relaxed, country themed setting.
Fun, different offerings, fresh, tasty
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).
I appreciated I could get a reservation online as we were in Bloomington on a busy weekend.
Great food, great service. We had a great time!
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.
An innovative, original restaurant idea with wonderful inventive food, a fun atmosphere, and good service.
I’ve been trying to get to FARMbloomington for dinner a few times over the past year. It was good. The service was very good. Perhaps we will try it again, but now I don’t feel like it’s a must.
Excellent food as always. Friday special of fish & chips was delicious. An overly generous portion, of which I took half home.
I took my daughter and friend, I u students, out because the was visiting Bloomington on business. It was the perfect place for us!
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.
FarmBloomington is wonderful! Food is creative and delicious. Service was good even on a very busy Saturday. Management is attentive and cares about customer experience. This is a must-visit establishment when you’re in the Bloomington area!
It was a great place with new takes on regular foods. Only wish it was more accommodating for Gluten-free options.
The Easter brunch menu was wonderful and our meal was excellent!
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.
Over all the food was good, but the signature prime rib was mediocre at best. Fatty and over powering gravy.
Absolutely delicious food, very creative chef. Their poutine is absolutely fantastic.
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.
Great wait staff , quiet homey atmosphere , fresh healthy and really high quality eats , creative menu with a great variety - go there and eat !
Always fantastic. We have been coming here for years and always love it.
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
I take my daughter and her friends to FarmBloomington whenever I am in town. It’s always such a special treat. Whether for dinner, breakfast or brunch, the food is so delicious and creative and the service is friendly and prompt. We love FarmBoomington - definitely our favorite restaurant among some wonderful Bloomington restaurants!
Excellent atmosphere, excellent food. Service was excellent as well. Will definitely make another reservation next time I am in B-town!
Always enjoy it here
Awesome! We got the salmon and beet risotto. The risotto was a little bit cold when it came out but besides that it was the perfect special occasion dinner.
Blood Mary’s are so good with the perfect amount of spiciness!
Food and unique decorations
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.
The food looked like something that was just thrown on a plate. it was over priced and over cooked. not good at all. the service was great and the people were nice. it was just the food that I would suggest not getting
Food was fresh bribrant and aromatic. Zach took care of our OpenTable cancelation that came in minutes after we left the restaurant.
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.
Awesome place for brunch downtown Bloominton. Amazing Bloody Mary and excellent food! I loved the atmosphere.
We had a wonderful meal. The food is always very fresh and service is wonderful. This visit I tried the Bloody Mary, and it didn't disappoint!! Yum!!
Tables too close to one another but good food and waitress
Love this place!
