lively center city east restaurantWe've been here often, either before theater or a concert. Service is always excellent! Food too!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMcomfort zoneFarmicia was recommended to me by a friend. I was not disappointed. We had a party of three(friends from out of town). The menu was quite extensive and varied. We had no trouble in making decisions. The food was very tasty and well presented. The servers were friendly and courteous. I enjoyed the openness of the setting and we were able to have a leisure conversation with no sense of being rushed. I will be returning.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWould definitely go again!FARMiCiA is a great place that I happened upon by accident and i'm glad I did! Took some staff of mine here for lunch and the place is so nice and the servers very accomodating. LOVED that they offered varieties of bread to each diner, and the herbed butter was delicious. I just had a sandwich but I plan on ordering something more unique the next time I go. This is such a great place, especially for those interested in sticking with locally grown foods - whether you're a vegetarian or not!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Local FareWent for dinner with two colleagues. Terrific happy hour deals and great mixed drinks. The food was delicious: the calamari and crab cakes were out of this world. We all enjoyed our entrees and you'd never tell the brownie was gluten free if you didn't know...and it was big enough to share. Would definitely go back.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMToast rounds were broughtToast rounds were brought by our server to accompany the appetizers. However, we did not request them & were subsequently charged for them. Though it was a nominal fee it was still a fee we were surprised to see on our bill. Also, the bread tray was very nice but it would have been even nicer if the tray was brought around a second time. Other than those 2 minor flaws, we enjoyed our dinner at your restaurant. We were also impressed with your gluten free menu; my niece must eat gluten free & your menu offered many delicious choices for her.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!I've been here on four occasions and each time it was fantastic! The pork chop and duck are both phenomenal!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistent for lunchA bit pricey compared to area places but still consistent. My only wish was a crispier roll for burger.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous healthy foodAn incredible dining experience. We loved the food especially with the care in providing healthy organic ingredients. And the service was GREAT!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a terrific Sunday brunch.Had a terrific Sunday brunch.

Farmicia was one of the only locations that would take a reservation on a Sunday. Thank goodness we called, it was busy. We were seated immediately and start to finish had a wonderful dining experience.
I HIGHLY recommend the goat cheese and herb omelet. Add on one slice of banana french toast too. DELICIOUS!
We'll be back for sure.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMParking right next to FarmaciaParking right next to Farmacia is a plus. Our friends were late and the staff did not rush us at all. The crab/pear salad was terrific. Best of all, although they have a bar,you can BYOB and there is no corkage fee. We will definitely return to Farmacia.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was wonderful, the entreesFood was wonderful, the entrees a bit dry, but still flavorful. The fresh bread they serve is great. I recommend trying them all. The drinks were tasty. We went during happy hour (5-7) so they were 50% off which was even better.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFor my money, Farmicia isFor my money, Farmicia is still the best BYOB in Philadelphia. The menu is varied and unique and every dish is delicious. The staff is attentive and friendily. One wishes it were a bigger place, but it is larger than most BYOBs in the city. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the Delaware Valley!!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll have to thank my nephewI'll have to thank my nephew for recommending Farmicia; my husband and I loved dining there! The service was excellent; attentive but not bothersome or in-your-face. It was hard to decide which of the items to order because they all sounded so great. My husband had the tenderloin of lamb and I had the duck (boneless). I think I should have ordered the duck medium instead of well done, and will the next time. My husband's lamb tenderloin was wonderful. We look forward to the next time we go to center city so that we can dine at Farmicia again.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday BrunchI arrived for brunch on a Saturday afternoon about 1:30, we had reservations , we were seated immediately. Our glasses were filled with water. The waiter stop buy for our beverage order. My friend asked for hot tea. I was fine with water. I had the Lancaster BlT it was just okay. My friend had the Turkey club with avocado , it was very good. The service was outstanding .4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNicoleHands down this is one of my favorite spots in Philadelphia. I have never had a bad meal or a bad drink. The food is always fresh. The Lancaster BLT and the grilled goat cheese sandwhich are both delectible. If I could fit eating both, I would. And if you have never had a Pimms cup, this is the place to try it. The service is always right on, and I have never feeled ignored. This is a gleaming nugget in Old City and I highly reccomend stopping in.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMCome for the CocktailsThe food at FarmaCia is definitely fresh and well-cooked, although not very imaginative. If you like good, simple food, this is definitely your place--chops, steaks, fish, etc. Where this place shines is the cocktail menu--I wanted one of every cocktail on the list. My friends from out of town loved it. Would I take a real gourmand here? Probably not. But we definitely had a good time. The service was excellent, the atmosphere lively and the ambiance was great. Excellent place for before or after the theater.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNot our first time becauseNot our first time because it's our favorite place!
Best in the city for pleasing both vegan and foodie and combination of the two.
Highly recommended....3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for BrunchWe had Eastern Brunch at Farmicia. The beverages where really good, specially their Red Sangria, great presentation and flavor. The service was very promptly and the food tasted "natural". I enjoyed the atmosphere, which it was vibrant, but not annoying. Liked it!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm a vegetarian and my husbandI'm a vegetarian and my husband is not. We were both able to find things on the menu that were appealing. The food tasted fresh, we were surprised at their tonics list and indulged in a few drinks as well. Service was great, the hosts could be a little more welcoming. Would love to go their seasonally.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMChose the restaurant for pre-theateChose the restaurant for pre-theater which worked out perfectly. Arrived in time to take advantage of happy hour drink special. The pear and crab salad was delicious. The crab cake appetizer was also very good. Even had time for dessert - and so glad we did - because the blood orange sorbet was delicious and refreshing. Our waiter was very attentive and we got our check quickly and off to the theater we went. Perfect timing. Definitely will return!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOn Sunday, our first dinnerOn Sunday, our first dinner at FARMiCiA was delightful. French lentil salad with greens & baked goat cheese was flavorful & large enough for a lunch. The duck breast & London broil were very good. Wine list is small & reasonable, but we did BYOB with no corkage fee. Notable were several vegan options, which will interest a friend of ours. We'll be back.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe cheese platter was perfect,The cheese platter was perfect, four choices and a delecious chutney. Chicken was great, with kale and butternut squash. A wonderful combintation.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, appetizers and dessertOverall, appetizers and dessert were excellent. Most of my party's entrees were good as well; I was a bit disappointed in the duck breast I ordered and would order differently next time. We brought wine but next time I'm looking forward to trying something off their cocktail list.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the best food we haveSome of the best food we have had. Portions were just right and everything was cooked to perfection. We had an amazing time and would go back in a heart beat3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe four of us went to brunchThe four of us went to brunch on St. Patrick's Day. The food was amazing but the hit of the table was the cheese grits! If you're a fan of Bloody Mary's, then you must order the Barn Burner. It's the best I've ever had. Can't wait to go back.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMy lunch was delicious andMy lunch was delicious and the service was great. I forgot my leftovers and two days later I am still annoyed that I forgot to pick them up!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
