Farm fresh; locally sourced (where possible) good food. Nice wine and beer (try local Dolores River Brewing) selection!

The farm bistro is a wonderful place, very cosy and friendly. The food is really superb. We had an arugula salad with blue cheese and a soup for starters. The soup was a revisited version of a Greek salad: a great idea. The chicken and steak we had as main course were also very good. We didn't have any desserts,... More

Enuf said. If you prefer more organic, homegrown food over processed, predictable chain food ....eat here. We went for late lunch and had plenty of choices and it is not strictly vegan but has that healthy feel in general. Don't miss it if you like this type of restaurant. Period.

All the positive reviews are right on target. The Farm Bistro serves delicious, healthful food in a very pleasant dining room with a down-on-the-farm decor. It's as far from a chain restaurant as you can get. We went early, just after the 11 a.m. opening, so service was quick. I imagine that you could have a longer wait during peak... More

We had the pleasure of dining at the Farm Bistro with a tour group while visiting Colorado. It was a delightful experience. Rusty and Laurie Hall served a delicious meal and shared their experiences growing and subsequently serving organic foods in their restaurant. Rusty prepared vegetarian lasagna that was full of flavor, accompanied with a fresh green salad and house... More

When we arrived for lunch at the Farm Bistro, we'd been several days on the road and had eaten our share of greasy fast food. My husband, daughter and I were ready for something healthy and the Farm Bistro delivered. I had a delicious chicken salad with fresh, tasty greens. My daughter had a personal pizza (homemade dough!) with fresh... More

Sometimes when touring in the USA it's hard to find fresh, non-chain food as you travel. The Farm Bistro was excellent - we could easily have chosen several things from the menu. Fresh salads and soups were delicious. The service was excellent too - they were really helpful and friendly. Delighted to have come across The Farm during our brief... More

We were here in mid-May. Bistro is located in an historic bank building on Main St. Tables are close together. Food is locally sourced and prepared fresh. The pasta and the chicken pot pie were very good. The desserts are delicious. The restaurant is very busy so the service is a little slow. They could use 1 or 2 more... More
