Pleasant surprise to find healthy vegetarian options available after a long travel day. Great service from Ali, friendly hostess, warm atmosphere and generous portions. Highly recommend this stop for lunch or dinner.

The Farm Bistro was a little difficult for us to find as we drove through Cortez because of the small sign. So we stopped and checked with people in the nearby organic food store who directed us straight to it. I had the Chicken Fried Steak while my wife ordered the Purple Goat Pizza. The steak was cooked perfectly and... More

Just like our previous visit, this bistro was a treat. Best meal of our trip so far, all locally sourced and freshly prepared with flair. Must stop here if you are I. Town, but beware, closed at weekends.

We ate dinner at the Farm Bistro in late September. The place is very light and comfortable (not formal at all). They focus on using local food sources whenever possible and the freshness shines through the various dishes. My husband's yak-burger tasted good and beefy; my chicken fried steak was moist and flavorful. Veggies were crisp and tasty too. The... More

This was a great restaurant! Interesting, varied menu using local ingredients and suppliers. The lamb meatballs in a curry cream sauce were fantastic as was the mesa chicken. We went there two nights in a row we enjoyed it so much. Service was great and the place has a nice ambiance.

Food well prepared in this Farm to Table restaurant. Very comfortable, casual atmosphere with understated decorations. Love, love, love the large photographic images on the wall that highlight their goal of local food! Also, the changing "gallery" wall is always interesting & well done. Friendly staff. Clean, economical & just delightful. Whenever I am in Cortez, I want to visit... More

Stopped in after a long day traveling not knowing what to expect and were pleasantly surprised! It was around 8:30 pm on Monday and they closed at 9 so we weren't even sure if they would seat us but they did and I loved everything about The Farm Bistro! Carrot coconut soup & Pizza, YUM! But the smothered burger with... More

We rolled into Cortez after a long day on the road and looked for somewhere to eat. My wife can't handle Mexican food and we were both suffering a surfeit of steak. Wandering through the downtown area we stumbled on The Farm Bistro and thought it looked like a nice place so we went in for an early dinner. The... More
