    We had a truly lovely “farmhand” (server) tonight. My two family members had burgers “French Style” with sautéed onions and blue cheese on them, which they really liked. I had a pizza with mozzarella and pesto which was sub par in my book-the pesto was super oily and there wasn’t much mozzarella, the sauce was meh. BUT the cocktail was good and served in a super cool glass and we loved our server, so that more than balanced out the fair pizza. I really appreciate this place taking reservations and they have a really nice and clean ladies room, which matters a lot! (No mom visiting her son at college wants to have to use the restroom at their place!!) 😄

    We came from Virginia to tour IU with our son and ate here for dinner the first night. The setting is so unique and charming! The food was delicious and our waiter was very attentive. Will return if IU is the college he chooses!

    Unfortunately this came highly rated and was a huge disappointment. We were told multiple times it was an off night. That they were changing the menu and the kitchen was backed up. Our reservation was 715 and we did not get our food until over an hour later. The burgers were the food network award burgers and were cold and over cooked despite the chef recommended for medium rare. One did not even have the side with it. We were offered free dessert but they were out of the dessert we wanted and they even still put it on the check and comped it lol. It was all kind of crazy. Our waiter was young and new you could tell. We felt bad for him and he did the best he could so we tipped him well despite the hot mess but probably will not go back despite high recommendations. Drinks were good per my dining mates so maybe just head to the bar.

    We visited Farm on a Saturday night for dinner. Our meal and drinks were all very good! Our waiter however provided less than even average service. The restaurant was crowded the whole time we were there, so if he was obviously hustling we could make an exception. That did not seem to be the case though as he mostly appeared to be wandering around aimlessly. Everyone else we spoke with (bartender, hostesses) were friendly and helpful. The ambiance was just ok to us-maybe dimming the lights a bit at dinner would help. It just seemed way too bright inside. Overall, I’m glad we tried it and we will probably give it another try since the food was so good.

    I made reservations in December for the Farm on Saturday, January 8. When we arrived at the restaurant it was closed for several weeks over the holidays. Farm needs to communicate with Open Table regarding their hours of operation.

    MY wife salmon was not as lightly cooked as she wanted it but the server and kitchen was very responsive. We had some difficulty understanding the server who was wearing a mask. Otherwise this was a very good meal on New Year's Eve. We would certainly go there again.

    I had friends visiting from out of town & knew Farm would be a good, dependable restaurant for us. As always, it did not disappoint. Sam, our server, was professional, friendly & patient (there was a lot of reminiscing going on). One friend & I took advantage of the chef's offer to fry dark meat chicken instead of white meat. We really appreciated that; the chicken was great. The third in our party was equally as pleased with his pork. I always know I can count on Farm to be consistently excellent in every way.

    We were in town to see IU’s production of the Nutcracker, and a visit to Farm Bloomington has become an annual tradition. Everything was just perfect for our party of 7, from our friendly server, to the excellent food…right down to the awesome music! Everyone was super happy with their meal selections!

    Things were ok but we expect better from FARM. I hope the food of my guests was much better than the beef brisket I had. The brisket was fatty (not in a good way) and undercooked and not very flavorful.

    The food was absolutely delicious. Even the broccolini was difficult to leave behind on the plate - I had to finish it. The hummus was divine and the brisket so flavorful and lovely. The mashed potatoes had that bit of garlicky bite, but were also creamy so they melted in your mouth as they went down.

    We were seated in the back room which doesn't have the warm ambiance of the rest of the restaurant. This was a disappointment since we had made reservations in advance. This was also near the staff stocking area so there was a lot of staff chatter and noise. Food was OK - I enjoyed the french toast casserole but it wasn't anything special - could have made it at home. My mother did not care for the Hoosier benedict - the biscuit was very dry and overall seasoning was bland.
