The Farm Bistro was very enjoyable. The food was high quality and the restaurant had a "healthy food" focus that kept us from feeling guilty. Unfortunately, I found the food a bit repetitive and I ended up sharing with the rest of my family for the sake of variety. The staff was friendly and the environment was pleasing. Its close...

Food is always delicious, wait staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is spot on. The only bad thing I would say is that their hours are funky, call before you go.

We had high expectations, I mean it sounds wonderful! It was a very busy day and temps were as high as they get in Cortez. The place was stuffy. Staff was friendly, but it's a funky layout. You must go to the back to order and the menu was a bit hard to figure out for me. Chicken sandwich sounded... More

Loved this place and wish it was at home. I had a delicious chef salad with chicken and my meatatarian husband had a burger. Everything about the salad was fresh and interesting to eat. Focaccia bread was soft and tasty. Ambiance is trendy but quiet - you order in the back and they bring order to you and check on... More

The Farm Bistro is simply amazing! The service is great and also has a friendly environment! But most importantly their food is DELICIOUS! I recommend trying their black bean burger or their Chicken Salad. This place is very unique and fun. Love it!

The food is just what they promise...fresh and local. The setting is pretty cool in the old downtown building with original brick walls exposed It's very good, but pretty spendy.

Everything was first class at the Farm Bistro. Appetizers, salads, and main courses. The service was friendly and efficient. The restaurant was clean and very well decorated. Much of their food comes from their own farm. Very nice story. You cannot go wrong at this place. We will definitely go again and again whenever we are in Cortez. I don't... More
