The service is above and beyond, the atmosphere is lovely and the food is fantastic! At one point during our dinner the kitchen even sent out free... More

We went to Station 220 for Mother's Day brunch, and overall it was delicious! Highlights for me included the shredded pork with cornbread, the kale salad, the duck confit, and the house-made smoked salmon. We're used to more dessert options at brunch, so I took off a star for the small selection. But it's a restaurant definitely worth a repeat... More

If you are looking for fine dining in the Bloomington, IL area, look no farther than Station 220. This is a "Farm to the table" restaurant where most of the food comes from a local farm owned by the chef. Using fresh high quality ingredients, the food is beautifully prepared with a variety of unique and interesting dishes. Good wine... More

My boyfriend and I ate here with some friends. The atmosphere was great. The food left something to be desired. We paid over $100 and left hungry. We were not impressed and won't be going back.

For a nice "slow food" farm to fork restaurant it simply doesn't get any better in Bloomington Il. The food is creative, service is engaging and educated, it is great for any time you do not have to rush through your meal.

I'd visited this restaurant a couple of years ago and gave it an average review, and I am sorry for not submitting an update. Since then, I have eaten here many times and it is probably the best restaurant in Bloomington. The vegetarian options are excellent and my carnivore husband always loves the meat options. Service is typically very good... More

The place is the best restaurant in the twin cities. Outstanding. The beef cheeks are always great and so are the scallops. The last time I was in with my wife, we split an entree and had appetizer, salad with an egg nest, main course and dessert. The steaks are also top shelf.

This was possibly one of the best meals I've ever had. We made reservations and were seated right away. Everyone that we saw was very professional and proper. The waiters served the women first. Everyone was dressed nicely. They were very courteous and polite. It's definitely a warm welcome in Bloomington where nice restaurants and professional employees are hard to... More
