    Allie was an exceptional server, attentive and fun but not at all obtrusive. The new cocktail menu was great - Lost Boys is one of the most interesting drinks I’ve had in a long time. Baseball steak wasn’t as good as usual and we were told for the first time in a decade of eating them that the home fries aren’t gluten free? Overall quite enjoyable, we’ll be back.

    Fantastic dinner as always at Farm. I had the salmon dish (cooked perfectly), and my partner had their meatloaf service. My partner confirmed that it was in fact "not yo mamma's" meatloaf and delicious. Service was quick and efficient. Can't wait for our next dinner at Farm.

    Overall pretty good dinner. The drinks are always great, one of the best bars/bar staffs in town. Curried lentil soup and another app to start. Soup was great, other app I do not recall. I did a pizza for dinner and that was pretty good. My girlfriend did prime rib and thought it was pretty average.

    As ALWAYS FARMbloomington meets and exceeds our expectations. We dined at the bar as we enjoy the interaction with the servers that come through and the bartender. Our meal (early afternoon) was wonderful as ALWAYS. Service was friendly as ALWAYS. We travel two hours to Bloomington for some shopping and dining about once every couple of months and we love to include FARMbloomington when we do. ALWAYS!

    We have eaten at Farm before and had a great experience, however, this time it was very disappointing. We had a reservation. We sat outside. A protest was going on at the courthouse during dinner, but that is not the restaurant's fault. No one came to our table to greet us for 35 minutes even though several members of the wait staff saw us sitting there. We asked the hostess for help, she apologized and finally our server came out. She said they were busy with a rehearsal dinner inside. Our drinks and our french fries appetizer were great! After a long wait and a reminder to our server about our salad, it finally came out without all the toppings we had ordered. The entrees followed the salad about 3 minutes later. The food was cold, chicken dry, steak was to be medium well, but was cooked through. My guess is the food had been sitting for awhile. I rarely ask to speak to the manager, but it was necessary this time. He graciously comped our entrees and we went to some food trucks to eat. Hopefully it was just a one time glitch, but it was supposed a special dinner, so disappointing. We had traveled over an hour to eat there. I would also say that although not the restaurant's fault, they do have trouble with the homeless people in the area. A man who was basically almost naked was approaching diners at the tables outside. I did see one of the managers try to deal with him and she was kind and offered him some food, which he didn't eat and left it as litter.

    We ate at FarmBloomington on Father's Day. I had made reservations and we were seated right away. Everything about our meal was fantastic. The food was excellent, our server was very busy and still managed to take great care of us, and the ambience was nice. I look forward to another meal there soon.

    Overall good experience. We had reservations for Father’s Day. We started with the Hummus and it was tasty! I had the Poutine and it was super salty but my husband said his Eggs Benedict was good and our kids split the French Toast and they seemed to really enjoy that. Their espresso machine was down so that was a big bummer but their coffee is nice. Service was a bit slow but we were expecting as much on a holiday. Restaurant has a farmhouse feel and it’s much more relaxed than we remember it being but it was a nice place for Father’s Day.

    The food was half and half. The fries were amazing. The OJ was amazing. My 9 year old said the grilled chicken was good. Fruit was amazing. BUT The toast was so hard I couldn’t stab a fork in it. The grilled cheese was awful. I’m not even sure how a grilled cheese can taste so bad. My husband got a bison burger, medium rare, and it was about as hard, dry, and burnt as the toast.

    The food was ok.The Salmon had no taste, the cranberry sauce was super bitter. My kids ate the burgers and they were great except they were told they couldn't get fries only potato salad but the menu stated you were able to substitute. Our waitress was not that great.

    We ate at the restaurant on a Wednesday night and really enjoyed the food. Service was great. We were delighted to find that they had a vegan dessert on the menu (my daughter is allergic to eggs). Much to our dismay, they did not have the dessert that evening, so my daughter was unable to enjoy dessert. We returned to the restaurant on Friday, mainly because their Friday special is prime rib. We were seated and as our server approached we heard someone from the kitchen tell her that they were out of the prime rib. We were also told that they, again, did not have the vegan dessert (chocolate pave) in the menu. Even though the food at FarmBloomington is quite good, we were overall a little disappointed with our experience.

    Nothing special. Menu seemed limited and overpriced for the food. The server was very friendly but took a while to get food, get refills, and get our check. Definitely over priced and not worth the trip. We won't be returning.

    Good American food—farm-fresh eggs. Servers were nice but it was just ok and very slow. A couple errors. But they try to make good on it. Fairly pricey but you’re getting quality food.

    The atmosphere was pleasant and our waitress was wonderful. Our drinks we very good. The fish special was a little over fried and the hushpuppies lacked, in our opinion, taste (they were flat tasting with simply the cornmeal coming through; no spices or seasoning tasted). The portabella mushroom entre was good and the carrots on the side tasted great; perfectly cooked. Dessert was good as well. The appetizer of garlic fries were a hit with everyone.

    We love FARMbloomington. We keep it in a steady rotations when we make the 2 hour drive to spend the day in the area. Location is convenient for downtown shopping . The food is always outstanding and the staff always treats us as though we were important individuals. They genuinely seem to enjoy working there and that enjoyment carries over to our dining experience! This visit we sat at the bar and enjoyed the interaction with both the staff as well as other patrons as they came and went. A wonderful morning!
