- Milestone Birthday Special DinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 5/4/2013It was our first time at the Inn. The ambience was very quaint and a good one for celebrating a milestone birthday. The service could have been more prompt and more attentive, but the food was wonderful. My husband enjoyed it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We had a not so good experienceBanashreeVIPDined on 4/6/2013We had a not so good experience with food a couple of weeks back. This time we had a really nice time with food and service. I asked for a "nice" martini and he suggested a raspberry martini -- it was great. Also this time we tried small plates instead of entree. We enjoyed everything.Special Features:
- Just say'nOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 4/6/2013Nothing really special about this place, the presentation of the food was dull and almost institutional looking, lacked any real flavor (catfish entree.) No ambiance, cheap little yard sale items furnished throughout, a cheesy little candle that burned out 1/2 way through dinner, white linen tablecloth/napkins were very nice. The room looks and feels cheap and stark. Dessert was the bread pudding and was fair. For a $180 meal for 3 people, it was overpriced and wasn't worth it. The waiter was very good and really tries hard to please.
- Save your money...go elsewhereOpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 3/31/2013The buffet was very sparse..the omelette was good and so was the meat from the carving station. Everything else including dessert subpar. Fish wasn't fresh...chicken tenders and fries???? Really??? And I have never seen liquid mousse. 48 dollars per person without including mimosa/bloody Mary's. most dc area high end restaurants are much less expensive and the quality is much, much better.
- Love the new reservation system.OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 3/31/2013Love the new reservation system. This was really easy to use......... Waiter was great and very professionalSpecial Features:
- Not worth the priceOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 3/31/2013Was not impressed with the Easter buffet. Not worth the price.
- Great little restaurant.OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/22/2013Great little restaurant. Food was very good and service was as well. Several good options on menu. Excellent wine list too.Special Features:
- I really didn't know whatroguepersonVIPDined on 3/8/2013I really didn't know what to expect when I found this place close to my house. What I found was a very charming secluded gem. The ambiance is great as a traditional restaurant. It is made up to be like a country home. The service is what you would expect at a fine dining establishment. I would expect this kind of restaurant to be a lot more expensive than what it was. I would definitely save this place as a go to for that night out without having to go into the city.Special Features:
- Hidden GemRoseDined on 3/2/2013This lovely restaurant has an excellent and unusual menu with a good wine list. I went there with friends for a birthday celebration and it was absolutely wonderful. The decor is charming, the staff friendly and helpful, and the desserts are incredible. My friends are planning to go back for their anniversary.Special Features:
- My date and I ate there forOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/14/2013My date and I ate there for Valentines Day dinner. 2 sea bass, 1 soup, 1 salad, 1 dessert and 1 bottle of wine ($40 - ok) was $176.00. Way to much for what we received. The ambiance, service & food DO NOT meet the standards for this kind of pricing. I'm a meeting planner and travel all over the U.S. and I was highly disappointed. The meal was good but not that good for that price!
- okay at best!!OpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 2/14/2013When my family and I arrived (5 min. early), our reserved table had been given to someone else. As a result, we had to wait for them to find/prepare another table. The Valentines Day 3 course meal offered too few choices and the food was "ok" at best. Not really worth the drive from Columbia!
- dissapointed this timeBanashreeVIPDined on 2/1/2013We had been at Brookeville Farms Inn previously and had liked the food, ambiance, and service. This time we were a bit disappointed about the quality of the food. The steak was too salty and the fish (Hake) had a bad smell. The appetizers -- scallops and shrimps -- both were good and the dessert Chocolate Bomb was great.
- Was my birthday treat thisOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 1/20/2013Was my birthday treat this year and the restaurant didn't disappoint - at least until the end. We had an adorable and romantic nook, but half way through our dinner a large and noisy group was paraded past us to the adjoining room. Just gotta love hearing wanna-be's comment about how cute we looked and how very romantic our table was - right in front of us as though we were part of the decor. The restaurant's large enough, and was empty enough, they could have put them anywhere else. Restaurants - sometimes the extra steps for your servers is worth the comfort of your diners. Dinner was delicious, but desert was a let-down.Special Features:
- The ambiance was very formalRhonaDined on 1/13/2013The ambiance was very formal and classic. I enjoyed the smoked salmon omelet wih spinach and cream cheese. Also enjoyed the pomegranate mimosa. Disappointed with the service. The waiter never asked if I wanted another drink or dessert, our coffee cups sat empty until we asked for refills several times. Water glasses were not refilled until we requested refills. When I rested my fork for a moment to converse with my friend, one of the staff rushed over asking if I was finished (my plate was 3/4 full). I doubt that I will return.
- Elegant FareOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 12/31/2012The setting is lovely old world style and the menu offered beef and seafood specialties suited to the season. Service was excellent and we were seated at a corner table for two upstairs in a quieter area which was nice since a gregarious group of New Year's revelers were having a good time in a room adjacent. All courses of the meal were well-prepared and tasty with faultless presentation and we ordered an uncorked chardonnay to go with dinner. An overall excellent dining experience and we would return, although we would probably opt for a brunch next time to see the grounds in daylight.Special Features:
- Brookeville Farms is a greatMetroFoodieVIPDined on 12/30/2012Brookeville Farms is a great place for that special occassion; my husband and I typically go there for our anniversary. It is very quiet, the setting is intimate, and the food is very good. They also have a great wine list.Special Features:
- The food was good. My steakOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 12/30/2012The food was good. My steak and eggs was delicious. The service was slow. After we arrived, we waited over 25 minutes to order our food. Service got better as we were eating on the table. The restaurant had a family atmosphere, since several families were sitting at the restaurant for the holidays.Special Features:
- We won't be backOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 12/24/2012In our opinion the service was very slow. We waited over an hour and a half to be served our entrees while the table across from us was seated after us and served ahead of us. My wife's meal was fine but my vegetables were barely warm and my steak was undercooked and so salty I found it to be inedible. If our waiter had checked back with us sooner perhaps I could have gotten a replacement meal before my wife finished hers. Management did take responsibility for ruining what was supposed to be a special Christmas Eve dinner by offering us free drinks, a free bottle of champagne and free dessert, all of which we declined. By this time our evening was ruined and we just wanted to go home. Management at least declined to charge us anything.
- Beautiful setting, bad foodOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 12/24/2012Sadly, the food here continues to be fair to poor. While we frequently dine in upscale restaurants, this one does not compare and often disappoints even though the entrees are VERY pricey! This is highly unfortunate because the setting is so beautiful.Special Features:
- I enjoyed the ambiance...theOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 12/21/2012I enjoyed the ambiance...the food was yummy (although, sadly, we were missing one of the cheeses in the 6 cheese appetizer - which for 7 people really needs to have more crackers). The dining room we were in was lovely for our group. That being said, we found our server lacking. I felt he was rushing us, uninterested in answering questions and generally unfriendly. All 7 of us felt this way. The service was very slow. For this reason, I may not return. Thank you for having us! Happy New Year
- First impressionOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 12/21/2012Good food good drinks. My wife and I where on our way to a Christmas party and the menu offered a small plate option. The chef was accommodating to my wife's dietary needs and we had a great meal.Special Features:
- Although I enjoy going toOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 12/16/2012Although I enjoy going to the Inn at Brookville Farms and always receive good service and food, my last experience was spoiled by where I was seated. We were seated away from all the other customers, in an undecorated alcove across from the bar and that was dark and dingy. I should have insisted on being moved when I first got there, but was preoccupied. My advice when making reservations is to make sure that you are not seated in this area of the restaurant.
- The four of us were seatedOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 12/15/2012The four of us were seated upstairs where it was too cold to take off our coats. We had to ask the waiter to turn up the heat, which is something an establishment like yours should never require a patron to do. It was a small room with two tables, and, since there was no music to create any type of decent ambiance, all we could hear were the patrons at the table next to ours. Considering the prices, the portions were small, and the food was fair. The only good thing was Carlo's service. It's unfortunate, but none of the four of us will return.
- Our sons had frequently attendedOpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 12/13/2012Our sons had frequently attended group functions here, but this was our first time eating in the dining room. We were very pleased with the overall experience, and will certainly return.Special Features:
- A friend and I met there forOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 12/13/2012A friend and I met there for a leisurely early dinner. The food was excellent. I had their crab cakes which were the best I have had in a long time. The crab was not buried in spices, especially Old Bay! The lump crabmeat was held together with very little binding and very attractively served. The only downer of the evening was the creme broulet, my usually favorite desert. It had a good flavor (lemon and ginger) which should have been, if anything, a topping rather than an ingredient. Creme broulet should be creamy smooth as silk. Theirs had a very grainy texture, a problem probably due to adding lemon and ginger to the broulet itself. Overall, great food served hot but not overcooked, good wine, great atmosphere and reasonable prices.Special Features:
- Worth giving another trymaryDined on 12/8/2012Always wanted to try the Inn so went for a birthday. There was a big party going on in the banquet area. I believe and hope that this is the reason that the service was not very good. The waiter seemed rushed and was not very helpful or engaged. He disappeared for very long stretches of time. Not what I would expect from a restaurant such as this. However, the food was very good and the overall surroundings nice, though a bit crowded. You could clearly hear the conversation at the next table. Worth giving one more try.Special Features:
- Antebellum perfection.OpenTable Diner Since 2003Dined on 11/27/2012I have eaten at the Inn at Brookeville Farms twice. Both times have been enjoyable. The mansion is beautiful building with multiple rooms. I am particularly delighted to eat restaurants that have converted mansions to restaurants. Good food, of course, makes the whole experience better. It is definitely worth return.
- Fantastic experience all theOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 11/25/2012Fantastic experience all the way around. Best crab cakes We ever had - and we have had quite a few. Amazingly everything Else was just as excellent. Simply outstanding!Special Features:
- Nice dinning option in Olney.OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 11/25/2012This is a very formal venue meant for weddings, reception, etc. but the on hand staffs are young and inexperience on how to project friendliness and welcome to dining when there is no event taking place there. While the chef or cooks does a good job in giving consistent plates with well presented and flavorful dishes with very good local ingredients. Overall very nice place for a quiet lunch on the off season.Special Features:
- Anniversary dinner ... FRUSTRATING!OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 11/24/2012We have been to The Inn for dinner several times before and have hosted a party there, and have had mixed experiences. This weekend's experience was really frustrating. We had a reservation & our table was apparently ready but the hostess "forgot" we were there for nearly 15 minutes. Our waiter was pleasant but obviously undertrained. I could list many problems, but I will highlight two. We ordered the squash soup and the waiter did warn us that it was a small portion, but seriously? It was about 3 tablespoons of soup! In other restaurants, that size bowl is used to offer samples! But the biggest problem was the long periods of waiting for EVERYTHING! We were happy walking in and miserable 3 hr later when we finally were able to leave.
- While the food was okay itABCovDined on 11/24/2012While the food was okay it certainly wasn't the high end quality they seem to want to achieve.Special Features:
- Room for Improvement at the InnFranniMDined on 11/22/2012The Inn at Brookville Farm has a pleasing ambience and that may be its strongest feature. It is a challenge to find the front door so I entered through the bar since it was the only door I could find. I had the osso bucco which was tasty but not fabulous. The mashed potatoes were good but that ice cream scoop used to serve them seemed tacky. The squash soup which I sampled was tasty. My BLT salad was unspectacular. Another member of the party had mahimahi which he said was good. The desserts were pretty boring. The Inn's menu is fresh and interesting but it just misses the mark when it comes to flavor...good but not greatSpecial Features:
- A hit with everyone.OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 11/22/2012I took my family for Thanksgiving dinner. It was my first time. Everyone thought the food was delicious, the service was excellent and the room was busy but quiet. I would highly recommend the Inn for a special occasion or if you are looking for a classic place for dinner.Special Features:
- We've been there repeatedly.OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 11/18/2012We've been there repeatedly. I'm especially fond of their seared scallops, which are always good and sometimes amazing.Special Features:
- Disappointing ExperienceWillimVIPDined on 11/11/2012Sunday Brunch was a disappointment. The food was acceptable, but came so quickly that it only could have been sitting on a warming tray, not prepared to order. Service was inattentive. Staff focus was on one very large party and one smaller one; other diners got short shrift. Will not return.
- My waiter Dan was very attentive.FoodGuruVIPDined on 10/17/2012My waiter Dan was very attentive. He quickly offered to make me fresh coffee, which was wonderful. The mussels were very fresh and made in a very good garlicky red sauce, which I loved. Overall, a very good place in the neighborhood.Special Features:
- Quiet brunch, country settingbjoadDined on 10/14/2012Brunch for the family. Very pretty restaurant in country setting. Wide variety of choices from Eggs Benedict to a form of cheesesteak. Nothing nouveau or knock your socks off, just a great place for a casual, relaxed brunch for the family in a beautiful setting at a quiet restaurant.Special Features:
- F A B U L O U S !!!!!OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 9/27/2012A fabulous restaurant with fabulous food. Service was outstanding even though it was late close to closing, we still received 5 star treatment. Food was out of this world!!! Heading back 2 nights later to take my son.Special Features:
- Excellent restaurant. IntimateOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 9/14/2012Excellent restaurant. Intimate atmosphere, though somewhat noisy.Special Features:
- Fantastic visitLiz8Dined on 9/14/2012Had dinner with five for a birthday occasion. We sat in the "porch" which provided an intimate setting. The food was fantastic. We specifally had scallops, calamari and the duck dip for an appetizers. All was fresh and delicious. For dinner I had the filet which was the best I've had in a long time. Perfectly cooked, and tasty. I would recommend dining here if you enjoy a quieter ambiance and enjoy the history of a neighborhood gem. Will defnately be back!Special Features:
