    Ambiance and customer service are great. Pork and chicken dishes were VERY dry. Food quality seems worse/less consistent compared to prior years.

    Farm has a fun, varied menu. We enjoyed the cocktail menu, as well. It's an energetic environment, but not too loud. Our server, Devin, was delightful. I look forward to returning.

    This was our second time to eat at FARMbloomington. The prime rib special, pizzas, and burger was delicious. The pork loin had great seasoning/flavor but was a bit dry for my friend's liking. Service was great; the server was very knowledgeable of the menu. We also enjoyed some time at the bar - friendly bartender with extensive knowledge of cocktails. High recommend!

    The food was not good. The tofu scramble was unflavorful and watery. The avocado was not fresh and was also like liquid. The bread was hard and couldn’t be eaten. Overall, I did not enjoy my experience.

    Service was very attentive, but the restaurant was nearly empty during Saturday brunch on IU’s parent weekend. We had a party of 8. Food has gone way down hill compared to pre-pandemic quality. Three of us ordered the avocado toast - they’re definitely not using fresh avocado. More like a watered down avocado spread. Smoked salmon on the toast was poor quality for the $20 price tag. Needed a steak knife to cut through the toast itself. The rest of our party was also disappointed with their entrees: French toast casserole, fruit parfait, and the benedict. Biscuits were good, but they used to be outstanding. Bacon and coffee were good. Overall, not worth the price.

    Food decent, wait time for food unreasonable. We were first table in the building, got biscuit basket. Best part of the meal. Actual food took 45-50 minutes. No reason for breakfast to take that long ever. Poutine, fries with gravy, French toast baked, avocado toast, eggs, etc. nothing takes that long and it was not peak volume by any stretch of the imagination. Been here twice and underwhelmed.

    very disappointed! have not dined here in two years and was nothing like previous visits. The weekend menu was very limited. The prime rib tasteless, sweet potatoes under cooked. Salad was average and unfortunately I had the worst blt ever...basically inedible. The liquor selection was very good but the food was so disappointing we will not be back.

    We made a reservation to sit outside. When we arrived at the restaurant, they told us they weren't seating outside and didn't have a table for 15-20 minutes. A heads up about this would have been nice. Two of us planned to order a dish they were out of. One of us ordered pork and requested it be medium rare. It came overcooked and super dry. We've had other positive experiences here, but the lesson might be not to go on the weekend.

    Service was dismal. This is my second time eating at the restaurant. I was prepared for the service being slow--but this was practically non-existent. It was a Tuesday night, and we made a reservation but did not need it. We sat outside, and after sitting for about 25-30 minutes without anyone approaching our table--and noticing the table that was seated right after us already had their appetizers--I went inside and asked for a service person. We eventually got one, and she was pleasant, but the lack of service continued. At the conclusion of our meal, we had some issues with yellow jackets (not the fault of the restaurant or the server) , and we were eager to remove plates to try and resolve the issue. Obviously us standing up every couple of minutes, trying to gently swat them away, drew some attention of the other diners--but certainly not our server. She was nowhere to be found. After several minutes of this, an adjacent diner suggested we have our finished plates removed. We continued to wait for our server to return to do this, and after several more minutes of trying to deal with the bees, we again got up and headed inside to attempt to find someone to take care of this. We then were left just sitting at the table--and again after a good 10-15 minutes, we got up again, approached another server, and requested our bill. We did note that the server at the next table was much more visible, and attentive, but ours was the pits. The food was good--but not great--at least not as good as the last time. With such terrible, slow/nonexistent service (and no guarantee I'd get the server from the next table over), I'm not looking to return anytime soon.

    The food quality was very disappointing. Of the 5 of us the only two that were fine were the two that got burgers. Just very underwhelming. The pizza was sub par and the catfish was almost inedible. The brussel sprouts we’re really good as an app, but the other veggie sides were not prepared great at all. We have other places in Bloomington we frequent so we were excited to try this place but left very disappointed.

    Service was great (the people were very nice) and the restaurant was clean and nice enough but the food was terrible. Pork loin was as tough as a shoe (I could barely cut it with a sharp steak knife), fries were grease sticks, carrots weren’t cooked, kale had no flavor and the pizza wasn’t pizza (it was like focaccia bread, if you like that). I hate to say it but, overall, we would never go back.

    The beginning of our dining experience was wonderful. Great beverages and appetizers. Went downhill from there. Our entrees took forever, no cheese on the pizza, the burger was charbroiled. Mentioned both issues to our server and had no response back. Would only go back for a drink.

    We were seated promptly, but it was at least 15 minutes before our server showed up. Said server did bring tiny glasses of water but disappeared for copious amounts of time. After our order was taken we waited close to an hour! an hour! for our food to arrive and since our non-existent server wasn't available for questioning, we stopped the hostess and asked if it was possible to receive our food. When the food did arrive it wasn't exactly cold, but it was 90 degrees outside, it was not hot nor fresh. Given that we are at an outdoor table that was positioned on a slope it was a constant battle to keep our silverware, glasses, and plates from sliding onto the pavement. We did notice that the adjacent diners had been given additional napkins to serve as a makeshift table cloth that prevented slippage. Overall a very disappointing meal.
