Love this restaurant. Carolyn, our hostess, was very friendly and knowledgeable. The chicken pot pie was absolutely delicious! They offer non gluten and vegan dishes too, using locally produced ingredients. They even have a refrigerator containing local eggs for sale, as well as locally made jellies, including a peach and jalapeno jelly. Their apple and almond dessert was tasty as... More

Excellent service, fresh food, not run of the mill. Between lunch and dinner they have a limited menu, I do not recommend going there between 2 and 5.

Eat here every year on our trip to Telluride.....we look forward to stopping here. Love the farm to table concept. The food is yummy. Great soups (Carrot, French Onion). Salads we have had: Chicken and the egg, Cesar salad (my friends absolute favorite). Also have had sandwiches. Definitely worth a visit!

While there are a number of ok to good places to eat in Cortez this stands out as very good and a bit different from the rest. Nice enough to be a special place but not over the top so you can go often. We found out about it on trip advisor so glad we did. We were a group... More

The Farm Bistro is now open for dinner. The menu is diverse and solidly built around seasonal and Southwestern favorites. The meal I had was great--well prepared and fresh ingredients, well plated. I think the best table in the house is at the back near the kitchen next to the gas space heater. For a warm winter meal out with... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review! I must point out, however, that we've been open for dinner since February of this year! More

We stopped for lunch traveling through town. Just our style. Nice ppl, clean, fresh, simply prepared food in a carefully styled dining room. I had carrot/coconut soup & a beautiful fresh salad in the middle of December. All food I saw looked delicious. Nice crowd. Wish this was in my town so I could dine there regularly. They cater and...

Not easy to use all/most locally harvested foods and pull a decent restaurant together. This place seems like it's still evolving, but is on the right track. Fairly priced. Good food.

So after a few nights of bar food, we opted for glass of wine a quiet. The simple, perfect pasta dish and homemade chicken pot pie soothed our road weary tummies.

Delicious, innovative, healthy, affordable. What a great surprise in Cortez. Moroccan meatballs in terrific sauce with crisp kale. Superior chicken pot pie. Homemade rolls. Flourless chocolate torte. Upscale farm look inside.
