We enjoyed our dining experience here. It's a little pricey as are most farm to table restaurants. The service was almost perfect except for a delay in picking up dirty plates. Very different wine list, and they were nice enough to let us try some before purchasing a bottle. The salads were really good and fresh. The Moroccan style lamb... More

We stopped for lunch and we're pleased to find local ingredients in a welcoming atmosphere. The restraurant was busy but low-key. The burgers were delicious and the fries excellent. They also have a little retail area selling fresh eggs, honey, and produce. I love the pictures on the walls- blown up photos of the farms and people growing the food... More

Stopped in for late lunch. Few daily specials were sold out, we had to choose from the regular menu.. No problem.. Entrees were fresh and delicious. If we don't have to drive 78miles, we will be there again tomorrow. Friendly staff and price was reasonable.

If you are looking for healthy and fine food, then you have found the right place. We are Europeans and we loved the food. You can't eat outside, but the interieur is very cosy. The price is really affordable.

This is a hidden gem in Cortez! The food is fresh and creative and the vibe in the restaurant is very cool. We had a Chicken and Egg salad- delicious! We would definitely eat here again- in a town of burger, mexican, and pizza places- this is a breath of fresh air! If you like farm fresh food and creative... More

Wow, such a great dinner! My husband, myself and 4 kids ate here. I am very picky and only want to eat healthy, fresh food and this spot more then met my expectations. We had vegan, pizza, salads, burgers, desserts - you name it and it all was phenomenal. Even the darn tea and honey was so good. Stop here... More

I have been in Cortez for 2-1/2 months, and I have tried most restaurants. However I have not tried farm bistro. Why? They do not cater to wheelchairs. I am in an electric wheelchair, and there is no way for me to get inside. We eat out 2-3 times each week. I've eaten next door to them at PepperHeads, and... More

We would welcome your assistance in creating a wheelchair ramp. Our landlord investigated a permanent solution but the city's sidewalk requirements would not allow for the proper construction. We have very little storage space, but perhaps you have a design that we could implement. peace, Laurie ps: please note that, in my opinion, by giving our restaurant such a low... More

Cortez is not the place I would have expected to find farm-to-table. That may seem odd given agricultural nature of the surrounding countryside. You're far more likely to find Denny's and Burger King than organic dining but The Farm Bistro is just fantastic. Plenty of options for the Carnivore, Vegetarian and Vegan with a wine/beer/liquor list heavy on Colorado sources.... More

The food was fresh and tasty. My hubby tried the burgers and enjoyed it immensely. Nothing was left. Great wait staff also. We loved the decor.

We wanted only a lght supper, but were so delighted with the menu offerings and the quality of our food that were made reservations for tomorrow evening, in spite of the fact that we saw other places in Cortez that we wanted to try and we'll only be here one more evening. Three of us had individual pizzas - nice... More
