Visiting from Boston and had
Visiting from Boston and had good reviews--so we went. A bit surprised that this was a "private room" inside of another restaurant. But we enjoyed that experience---and we certainly enjoyed the food, the service and the flexibility of having a nice long dinner with old friends without being pushed out. I would come back here. We all did the four course price fixe menu----

Farrah Olivia actually exist
Farrah Olivia actually exist in a small private room inside Kora, which can be jarring when the next table over is ordering pizza and talking loudly and you're looking at a gorgeous tasting menu and feeling fancy, but all of the food was DELICIOUS. Definitely one of the top five meals of my life -- don't miss the lobster chowder reduction and the flourless chocolate cake and make sure you take someone with you who will share their divers scallop and salmon with you.

Great food and service
I have always wanted to try Farrah Olivia and I wasn't disappointed. The food was excellent, we had great attentive service, and the 4 course price fixed meal was a great value for the caliber of food/dining. I'm looking forward to going back soon.

I cannot say enough good things about the food at Farrah Olivia. I mistakenly believed that it was a tasting menu only, but finally tried it during Restaurant Week and discovered they also have an a la carte option. From the plantain amuse to the weird-sounding but phenomenal cauliflower flan, everything was beyond delicious and innovative. The only dings were the atmosphere--you can hear ALL the noise from the bar so it's kind of like being in a gymnasium, and the decor is very corporate--as well as the service. While my server was extremely polite and gracious she was not very knowledgeable about the food and failed to explain any of the wine pairings with the courses. Not a deal breaker, but something I expect for that price bracket.

Amazing - Again
Chef Morou never disappoints at Farrah Olivia. This IS my special event restaurant, and with Restaurant Week going on, I dropped in for no 'special' reason. And, again, the meal and service was outstanding. The food is always expertly prepared and with innovative flourishes. I have been going to Farrah Olivia's for a long time - since their days in Alexandria - and I have never been less than extremely satisfied with the dining experience.

The food is outstanding. This is serious cuisine, for people who enjoy the very best in taste, variety and presentation.

Very enjoyable dining experience
Tried Farrah Olivia inside Kora Restaurant in Crystal City during Restaurant Week with 2 friends. All three of us enjoyed all three courses. Food and service was excellent.
