Interesting atmosphere and delicious food!

What an interesting atmosphere. Not your cookie-cutter restaurant. We recommend the garlic fries. The INDIANA ELOTE was really good, but dessert was the best. We had grilled peaches that were amazing.

I love the idea of Farm, but everytime we go I am disappointed. It is too expensive and the food is often "off." I would love to have a restaurant in Bloomington like Food Dance in Kalamazoo, MI that has both locally sourced food and has kid friendly menu items.

The Farm has a quaint atmosphere and quality food. However, my disappointment was that their chef on a Saturday would not permit substitutions on egg omlet ingredients. To add to this disappointment their prices were higher than normal for Bloomington in my opinion. I will not return..

The first course was a golden beet borscht. Actually the borscht was red, so the gold must not have been mine this day, but the borscht was delicious anyway with a dill and sour cream dollop on top. The octopus was tender and in a saffron sauce with red potatoes and some zucchini and corn. The flavor of saffron was... More

I have eaten here several time for lunch in the past. Loved the BLT and the fries with the aoli. Worth the drive from anywhere for that. We tried it for dinner a while back and was not impressed. Expensive for what we received. Talked my husband into going back for another dinner the other night. Never again. Ordered the... More

Farm could be very good, but tries too hard and needs some tightening up on the management/training side to be as good as its pricing. We started with questions about the drink menu, both alcoholic and nonalcoholic. The waiter had no idea which specialty cocktails were sweet, and which were dry and had to ask, which took a while. We... More

3 of us had brunch at Farm last weekend, and were very, very impressed with the professional service, the quality of the food, and the beautiful presentation. One had two eggs and biscuit with gravy. He said it was very good but the portion was quite large. I have food allergies that make a typical brunch menu difficult. I asked... More

Great food, seasonal menus, and fun atmosphere make the Farm a wonderful night out. Also check out the Root Cellar bar after hours. This restaurant is a bit pricey, but worth every penny. They also have great selection of local beers.

Came here while visiting the Indiana University campus. Food was delicious and they only use local farm fresh food, so special change daily. Atmosphere was like sitting in a old farm kitchen, which was really nice. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stop by again.
