This is a great place to celebrate any special occasion. the progressive menu was delicious, fresh and original. the view was spectacular and it really felt like we had left civilization behind for just a little while...
Although just over an hour drive from DC , it is well worth it. We went there for Mothers Day and enjoyed and excellent meal and great service. We asked the owner how a particular dish was prepared and she brought out the Chef who was a joy to talk to. This is a must for those who like authentic farm to table food prepared in an excellent way.
Fantastic experience from start to finish, with so many thoughtful touches plus delicious cocktails and amazing food.
Absolutely fabulous. The service was great. We had the progressive menu and everything on it was very delicious
Lovely sitting outside with a view of the Potomac. Very friendly wait staff and of course, the owner Beverly couldn't have been more gracious and welcoming. The new chef is doing a great job.
We have dined here before, and have never been disappointed. It’s one of our top favorites!
The service and food is outstanding. The only mistake was the portion of soup which was 2 tbsps and my friend got more and I got less and not served properly. But the service and the Manager Dakota are too good .
One of the best restaurants around! This is the second time my husband and I had the privilege of eating here, and it was unforgettable.
Birthday lunch. Great meal and even was given a take away gift of the country ham croque madame. Excellent friendly service and a great view.
It was out fourth time dining at Patowmack Farm. Food, service, & ambiance were excellent. Can’t wait to go back!
Friend’s birthday celebration
We had an absolutely delicious meal, with wonderful service and a great view to boot! We will absolutely be back and would urge everyone to have a meal here at least once! Def good for a special occasion!
We had a great experience at the sunday supper! Service was great! We enjoyed everyone's company and hospitality. We were the first party to arrive for supper so the bartender and owner came out to greet us, give us the story of the restaurant and recipes. All in all, wholesome experience. We will be coming back!
Beautiful setting, wonderful food and excellent service. All great components for dining to celebrate something truly special!
Wow. Amazing view. Fabulous service. Unique and delicious dishes!
The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm never disappoints. We had an incredible meal, with lovely service, and beautiful surroundings.
This is one of my favorite restaurants! The food is an amazing experience every time. The ambience is quiet, beautiful and peaceful and the staff is phenomenal. Each time is an experience! The wine pairings are great too, just wished they poured more of it, since it is sooo good. Thanks for the amazing time!
The tasting menu, wine pairings, and service are truly outstanding, making this restaurant one of the very finest in the whole Washington area. The restaurant's location on a mountain top with a view of the river in the near distance adds its own special touch to an extraordinary eating experience. We come here as often as we can.
Very happy Beverly and crew have kept this venue going. Outstanding service and food on a special occasion!
Beautifully perched on a hill over the Potomac. Impeccable service and a varied, delicious menu.
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are pleased that you enjoyed the menu and that the staff met your expectations. Beverly, Owner
The food was SUPERB, let me start with that, but the ambiance was incongruent with the food and there was a major faux pas. The restaurant is on top of a small knoll overlooking the Potomac River, but it’s up a dirt/gravel road with COVID safe outdoor seating surrounded by weeds and not enough heaters to go around. Our service was very good and the food was amazing until we got to the entree. We asked for a pescatarian meal and it was confirmed before we arrived and when we were seated that we were dining Pescatarian, our menu even said ‘Pescatarian Menu’ at the top. Everything we ate seemed pescatarian, until it was time for the entree and we were served the lamb entree, we questioned it with the server and it was whisked away . . . minutes later a beet plopped on Tofu sauce appeared. It definitely seemed like a throw together and we were disappointed to say the least. Dessert was a save, but we left a bit unsatisfied. We drove almost two hours because we had heard such wonderful things. I’ll repeat the food was OUTSTANDING, but with this quality we expected more attention to detail and could have easily overlooked the lack of ambience.
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. You are correct with your observation of gravel driveway, mowing - rain delays - heaters for every guest . We do have an alternative with seating in the conservatory in case of inclement weather. There is no excuse for the mistake of serving you the lamb. I have spoken to all the staff. I was very disappointed to hear this. Making every dining experience memorable is my goal. Please accept my humble apologies. Beverly, Owner
Such a wonderful place with fabulous food, and kind, attentive staff.
A great place to celebrate my wife's birthday. Of course, the printed menus and well wishes from the staff on her birthday were very welcomed. We continue to be impressed with the service. Our waiter and his supporting cast were attentive and informative. This is a restaurant where the story about the source of the food and combination of the ingredients confirms what you are tasting. It is great to have so many courses (9) and just the right amount of food in each so you leave satisfied, but not stuffed. We can't wait to go back for another great experience.
Thank you for the very gracious remarks about your dining experience and our staff. It was so nice to celebrate your wife's birthday. We look forward to seeing you in the near future. Beverly, Owner
Our second visit. Attentive service and, as we expected, delicious and interesting food we would never get at home. We loved the root vegetable "capuccino" and the fluke.
We went in April 2021 and the tasting menu was delicious - highly recommend the wine pairing. The food was only outdone was by the overall ambiance; the staff were very professional and friendly, and clearly deeply cared about the food they served and the effort that was put into it. The venue was also beautiful - we can't wait to go again!
The quality of the meal was mixed. Soup and fish were great. Steak was lukewarm and flavorless. Service was spotty and provided by different waiters. It took a long time for a second glass of wine to show up, and that took a second request to a second waiter. Price was $360 for three people, ok for a first-rate meal but not this one. We probably will not go back.
Thank you for your review. I am disappointed that it did not meet your expectations. We do have different people who serve the tables. That doesn't excuse the delay for your drinks to appear. I would hope that you would give us another chance - please let me know if you come. We pride ourselves on making each visit memorable - not what you experienced. Please accept my humble apologies. Beverly, Owner
If you want top food and service, look no further than The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm.
Thank you for your kind remarks. We are pleased that you enjoyed your dining experience with us. It was a pleasure meeting you. Beverly, Owner
The food was good to great. We had one entree that was overcooked and dry (lamb). The cut of meat was fabulous but it was a real disappointment. Chickpea salad was dry too. On the other hand the trout was a memorable treat.
However, the biggest disappointment was the service. The drinks took forever to be served and one was incorrect. Then the replacement took another forever. One guest is a vegetarian which I made clear at reservation but she was served a crabcake with the soup. Course was fabulous but poor service. With bread we received no plates - had to request. The coffee was served a bit late and it was warm not hot.
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I am disappointed that we did not meet your expectations. I have spoken to the entire staff about your concerns. I hope you will see remarkable improvement at your next visit, if we are given that opportunity. Take care and all the best, Beverly, Owner
I love this restaurant. The food is delicious, with so many different tastes and textures. It's an absolute delight to eat a meal here. And the setting is spectacular.
We had a delightful experience with a highly attentive staff with a emphasis on presentation of a delicious progressive meal. To enhance the experience, we were lucky to enjoy an incredible view of the Point of Rocks bridge over the Potomac on their patio area with our own personal space heater. Can’t wait to take more house guests to enjoy this locally sourced delight!
Thank you for your kind remarks about your dining experience. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time with us. We look forward to seeing you again. Beverly, Owner
Enjoyed a wonderful birthday dinner for husband. As with all Farm to Table restaurant, the Chef prides on bringing locally grown seasonal ingredients and incorporated them into delicious dishes he prepared highlighting the star ingredients. The entire wait staff is very helpful, professional and knowledgable. We will definitely return for other meals in the future and looking forward to dining outside once it warms up and the weather permits!
Thank you for the kind words. We are so happy that you enjoyed your dining experience with us. I have shared with the staff your remarks. I know they appreciate it. I look forward to seeing you in the near future. Beverly, Owner
As always this restaurant is amazing. Service is great, food is excellent, view is spectacular. I would recommend to try vichyssoise. Trout is great. Dark Chocolate Pavlova is exactly as I remember it from my childhood (many moons ago). Strongly recommend to visit this place.
Service is outstanding and very intimate. It's like visiting family. The food is impeccable. The chef visited our table. We were there for Sunday Supper which is served family style.
Second visit--One of the best meals EVER! Compares favorably with several Michelin restaurants we have dined at. Service was excellent and not overbearing. The progression of dishes which included a "roots" course; striper brandade; gnocchi(fabulous feta dressing); pork belly(rhubarb and salmon for the pescatarian) and two scrumptious desserts--plus a couple of more courses made for a "just enough food" dinner that left us saying "this needs to be a monthly event." Kudos to the Beverley Billand (owner and hostess) and new (6 month's on site) chef Vincent Badiee.
This is our 4th time here. The food was excellent.
Simply the best. #1 in Virginia, and probably a few neighboring states as well. Just sorry it took us so long to visit this fine establishment.
Amazing service, food taste and presentation was excellent. Hard to find anything wrong with the progression menu. Great ambience that creates an authentic farm to table experience!
The vichyssoise delightful; the whole trout delectable; the desserts sinful. In short, as always the kitchen knocks it out of the park. But... service was a touch off, we felt like an afterthought, not helped by the fact we were told "I'll be your server 'after all' "... Alas. Patowmack Farms remains my favorite Sunday brunch place and I look forward to my next outing there.
