Beautiful setting, ideal for warm weather. Service very attentive, polite, accomodationg. Food inventive, fresh, well prepared. Problem with the TaiYai with lump crab; the crab was invisible and not tasted. We neglected to order deserts on time and they were out (which, on the other hand, means that they were fresh made).
The setting on the porch is lovely. the starter and dessert were delicious. My entree was very disappointing. It was billed as a Thai style noodle dish, sweet and sour with some heat. it was all sweet, cloyingly so. no heat. and I paid $8.00 extra for the addition of lump crab meat and got a few morsels of claw meat.
Perfect to mark a special occasion, for us it was our 19th wedding anniversary.
Exceeded our high expectations! Hope to go back sometime
The dining area is a tent atop a hillside overlooking the Potomac river and Maryland - a majestic view and worth the trip. It has 15 outdoor tables, with great ventilation and lighting. You can get the adjacent private gazebo if you call and pay an extra $100. It is on a farm and must be accessed by driving, so be sure to have a designated driver assigned for the trip. The servers are incredibly kind, talkative, and personalize your experience. The meal is a tasting of farm-fresh, local ingredients, and every plate was a joy. The wine pairing elevated many of the dishes. The chef is incredibly talented and even came to greet the end-of day diners. Would return for a different season's offerings.
For 400 dollar meal for 2, food was not very good.
Amazing, thoughtful food. Attentive service. Overall a fantastic experience!
We absolutely love this restaurant—it’s approach, philosophy and commitment to farm to table. The presentation of the progressive menu was excellent. 3 stars on food because everything was over salted— from the fish broth, the focaccia accouterment accoutrement that came with it, to the amazingly cooked but almost inedible pork dish— because of the heavy hand on salt. Cocktails were so so. Don’t let this review keep you from going though— we will continue to go for the wonderful experience on the whole but hope chef will cover a few holes of the salt shaker.
Absolutely lovely location and experience. Great for foodies. The menu had a welcome message to my group was a special touch. I will definitely go back
Great atmosphere! Great food! Views for days! Must try for fine dining in DMV.
Everything about this dining experience is picture perfect. We will definitely come back again.
We celebrate our dear friend birthday here and we were amazed by the view and the service. The Plating is great but needed some decor a little bit specially the cocktail specially if the mint is beyond reachable. The Black Forest is delicious but Plating is too dull and dark. Need to add color. We had a great time anyway.
The view was spectacular and our outdoor seating and watching the sunset was perfect. The meal was made even better by our server, Michael, who is a great ambassador for Potowmack Farms; they are very fortunate to have him work with them. Every course was described in detail, which we really appreciated. They accommodated my advance pescatarian diet and called to confirm our reservation too. We enjoyed a wonderful Spanish Albarino and took in all the charm of the setting. Everything tasted so incredible; sourcing local from the gardens and local growers and meat/fish purveyors makes a difference. What a treat. We celebrated my fiance's birthday and we feel blessed to be able to enjoy such a special meal.
Wonderful in every way!
Excellent food and great atmosphere.
creative menu usually but not always Succeeds. One of the courses was very spicy and the wait staff did not warn us.
What a wonderful evening! We were seated outside under the tent with fans moving the air so we were comfortable. The view was amazing and the wait staff was professional, knowledgeable and attentive.
The menu looked interesting and we did not know what to expect however, we were not disappointed! Each course built upon the previous and the wines completed perfectly. While each course by itself appeared small, at the end of the dinner we were all pleasantly satisfied and didn't need another bite.
Very enjoyable and we will be back again!
Delightfully earthy flavors with earnest and genuine service. Owner greeting patrons added a welcome personal note. Scenery was nearly bucolic and worth visiting for a truly relaxing dining experience al fresco.
My date and I were both leery about a completely vegetarian meal. We were both pleasantly surprised.
The bartender suggested a local rye in place of my usual Irish. Another one of the staff suggested an excellent wine that went perfectly with the dinner. Each course came out and they were described to us.
We were one of three couples inside, so the atmosphere was quiet and conducive of long talks and of course the view is wonderful.
Thank you for the kind review. Glad you enjoyed our Vegetarian Sunday Supper. Next month is German!! We look forward to seeing you again. Beverly, Owner
Had a wonderful experience. Spend the afternoon having a long, leisurely lunch. Staff were very friendly and accommodating, food was amazing. Will definitely return for special events!
So happy you had a wonderful dining experience. We hope we will see you again soon. Beverly, Owner
Another beautifully designed and tasty meal in a wonderful setting. And it was still berry season!
Thank you for your kind review. So delighted you enjoyed your dining experience. We look forward to seeing you again. Beverly, Owner
Farm fresh, innovative food - every bite a delight. Even the cocktails are made with ingredients from the farm. Views are breath taking! We are going back for more next month!
We thank you for the very kind review and we look forward to seeing you next month. So delighted you enjoyed your dining experience with us. Beverly, Owner
The food is always delicious, the service is impeccable, the venue and view down the Potomac Ruver is beautiful. Dining at The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm is one of the best dining experiences in the Loudon County/ DC Metro area.
One of the best in the DC metro area. Simply amazing every time.
Thank you very much for the kind review. We truly appreciate YOU and are very happy your dining experience was amazing! Beverly, Owner
There are not enough superlatives to describe our experience. From start to finish, the presentation, service and food was exquisite. Clearly creativity is at its prime here. Love it and have already made our next reservation to return. It is an experience that doesn’t come cheap, but we were happy to pay for such an overall outstanding evening.
The Restaurant is FANTASTIC!!! Was beyond my expectations. Love the view. Will definitely be going back
Anniversary. The entrée sizes were OK for brunch. But we ordered minestrone soup and it was $14 and the tiniest amount I’ve ever seen. It might’ve been about 1/3 of a cup and a good size bowl. The price should’ve been much less or the quantity should’ve been more
For her birthday, I brought my oldest and dearest friend to Patowmack Farm for her birthday lunch. I had looked long and hard for a unique place to celebrate her birthday, and boy did I get it right this year! Such a beautiful and special place with a stunning view, delightful staff and delicious food. Each course felt specially made for us with exquisite presentation and the freshest of ingredients. Despite the hot day, we enjoyed cool breezes on the terrace as butterflies fluttered around us in the surrounding gardens. With a delicious pot of pour over coffee, we chatted for hours and were attended to in a way that left nothing to be desired. You bet I recommend this place! In fact, I'm already plotting my next visit:)
P.S. We watched a bridal shower taking place in their gazebo that can be rented for small groups. It looked magical!
Food is amazing and so is the service! The drive was very pretty too.
The food overall was the best I’ve ever had. Every single ingredient played a part into making the dish phenomenal. Definitely coming back!
It's a great place for a culinary experience with all local and organic ingredients, plus an exceptional service and super friendly atmosphere.
My new favorite restaurant! The view is amazing, the food was wonderful, and the staff was super friendly!!
Really outstanding!!! The location was scenic. Food and ambience was really good
What an outstanding dining experience! The food was exceptional, seasonal drinks were so creative and the service was flawless. All and all an incredible meal
Beautiful setting and view, excellent service - love the farm to table concept and the menu. Loved that all our dietary restrictions were taken care of in a 7 course meal. Was here for my husband’s birthday and will definitely be back!
Fabulous food, wonderful setting. Sat outside. Was a delightful evening. Overall excellent. A little pricy BUT we wil go back.
We love coming here. With that said, like so many others, they are not immune (pun intended) to the challenges facing so many restaurants in the COVID era. Our server (Jordan) was genuinely interested in making sure we had a pleasant evening, and we did. However our service was uneven given they team up to deliver each course.
Course two came before course one. Our wines were out of order. Our pre-dinner drinks were delivered after our first course wine. In the end these were minor inconveniences in a night where they were not even half full. Regardless, the food is so delicious and creative and the wine pairings are well thought out. We will keep coming back.
Every course of the meal was excellent. The textures and flavors of the dishes were unique and outstanding.
The service was excellent and the view was superb.
The food was great. The wait staff seems a tad disorganized. We were there last month and never offered coffee or tea. This time we were so I just learned they forgot it last time. On this visit, they were confused as we got two desserts - not complaining there. The food was great and the owner comes and speaks with everyone. This is our second trip there. Another thing is I called in asking for low sodium but I don't think they accommodated my special diet request as things were a tad salty.
Fabulous experience ! The post-Covid kitchen is led by a creative and skilled chef who is incorporating the local produce into the menu in delightful gastronomic treats that satisfy the palate and aesthetic soul. The patio has a wonderful valley view and full sight of Point of Rock Bridge in the distance. Service was attentive, well informed about the menu, and unobtrusive. The wine pairings for our dinner were well chosen! 5 stars plus experience.
