Diner Reviews
  • "This is the best restaurant I've ever been to in decades of dining out. The food is incredibly imaginative and inventive. This is a farm to fork restaurant with something for everyone. You can walk around the property and see where the vegetables and herbs and fruits come from. Our server was so patient with all of our questions about the menu and the farm and so knowledgeable. The Camp Ash goat cheese dessert was so fabulous that I just wanted to be left alone in silence with it. Apologies to my dining partner. If you grow any of your own food, you'll be so inspired by this place; you will enjoy it in a whole additional dimension."

  • "This was the first experience for my wife and I at the Farm and while we live just a few miles up the road; the view of Virginia meeting Maryland at the union of the Potomac River was breathtaking. One will be as equally impressed by the presentation of each course in addition to the unbelievable ways ones' taste buds are seduced and overcome with astonishing flavor and texture. Crimini Puree, Asparagus Babaganoush, Oyster Parfait , Ham Hock Risotto, Crab Dumplings, Pork Shoulder, Chamomile Sherbert and Pistachio Oil Chiffon were the incredible creations we enjoyed. However, since the menu changes EACH night; one can only guess at what wonderful surprises lay in wait. Just know that whatever is presented will amaze."

  • "We celebrated my birthday with 8 friends and started with cocktails on the gazebo. The view and setting was gorgeous. The food is fantastic especially if you appreciate creativity. The meal presentation and the service was also outstanding. We enjoyed meeting the owner and loved the hometown feel. I highly recommend it and will return soon."

  • "We had an amazing night at Patowmack Farm. Incredible views, the food was really delicious and the service was just the right amount of attentiveness and informational but not in your face the whole night so we could have a really nice romantic night."

  • "My wife and I travel to The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm every couple months to enjoy a Sunday brunch. We have always had wonderful experiences (over the last few years) and look forward to any excuse to make the journey to Patowmack Farm. Chef Tarver King’s creations are amazing! The unique flavors and fresh farm vegetables and herbs please the palate every time. The views are beautiful whether sitting in the conservatory in the fall/winter or enjoying a meal under the outdoor tent in the spring/summer. This is hands down my favorite restaurant. The owner Beverly and the friendly staff make sure you feel at home."

  • "The restaurant has an excellent view overlooking the Potomac river at Point of Rocks with both indoor and outdoor seating. The food is creative, well prepared, and artistically presented. The staff are very attentive and informative. We chose the pairing option for which a small glass of wine is matched to the plate for each course. Patowmack Farm sources most of the ingredients, and the remainder come from local establishments except the seafood. The owner, Beverly, participates in the daily operation and visits each table - we had a nice conversation about her history with the farm and establishing the restaurant on it. It was an enjoyable and interesting experience."

  • "Exquisite cuisine and very nice wine pairings for this price fixed menu of organic offerings. It was a wonderfully relaxed, nicely paced meal with a talented guitarist playing throughout the evening. They can even made delicious fare out of foods I don't prefer (liver on one course). I was pleasantly surprised how good it was with the light sauce served with it. Kudos to the chef! On request, the staff graciously provided us with the list of the wines that were paired with our meal."

  • "Food, ambience, service - amazing. This is a fantastic restaurant! It's on a working farm and most everything they serve is either from the farm, local, or regional. Both the mixed drinks and food are creative and beyond tasty. And the menu varies daily! Not cheap, but worth it for a memorable evening."

  • "This was our first visit. We arrived at 12.45 for a 12.30 reservation. Everything was beautifully set up in a very pretty tent overlooking the Potomac. It was hung with flowers and the view from our table was spectacular. The food was some of the best we've had. Locally sourced and beautifully, inventively cooked. I had turkey liver parfait followed by smoked beef loin. Both were spectacular. The portions are exquisitely sized and beautifully presented. The house cocktails are also part of their locavore appeal. Many can be made non-alcoholic. Our children loved the house made ginger soda, and the dish and "chips" on kids menu was by far the most beautifully prepared kids food we've seen. An outstanding experience all round."

  • "This restaurant was a favorite of ours for the last few years. The menu now has totally changed from a la carte to 5 course progression which includes such delicious greens as ramp, nettle beer float plus foreign words to camouflage bacon (guancale) Espuma (foam) etc. You can go gather all these things on your own and not have to pay to have them cooked with pork. Not worth the price or the drive"

  • "We came for the guest chef dinner with Justin Severino from Cure. As always, the kitchen did not disappoint. Every course was wonderful, service was attentive, and the wine pairings were great. We look forward to our next visit!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Food - Absolutely incredible. The food is very complex and sure to please any foodie. However, even if you don't know what they're talking about it's still very delicious. All the food is grown or raised at the farm or sourced from local sources and you can definitely taste the freshness. The beef medallions were the best beef I've ever eaten, including almost every steak house in DC. Service - The wait staff is super knowledgable about the food. They explain every dish in great detail and literally run to the kitchen to get answers to any questions they don't know. Ambience - The dining area is set in a glass house on top of a mountain, overlooking a bridge that crosses the Potomac river. It's gorgeous. "

  • "If you are looking for a really special dining experience, this is the place. The dining room is full of natural light and the views are spectacular. This is just the backdrop of a really wonderful dining experience. The food is unique outstanding. You will eat things here that you have never had before and never will again, as the menu changes to reflect what's available at and around the farm."

  • "Great place to go for a unique dinner on a very special day. The food was exquisite. "
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "The a la carte selections for both meals were great. The dining area and grounds did not meet the expectations for a restaurant rated so highly. Business attire should not be noted as required for this type of dining room. Roof leaked on our table during dinner. I wanted a reservation specifically for 14 May and OpenTable indicated there were no tables available. The waiter said that was not the case. Very irritating."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "My husband and I had a wonderful meal with excellent service on 5/11/14. Our only criticisms on an otherwise perfect restaurant were that the wine list could have benefited from additional selections and the servings could have been a bit larger. Since the dishes are creative it would have been nice to have a bit more than was provided, for all three courses. We would highly recommend The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm for all to visit to experience great food in a beautiful location, with a unique country view and highly professional service."

  • "Our first visit to this wonderful restaurant since Tarver King took over. We enjoyed his cooking at Ashby Inn and wanted to see him cook under the hyper-fresh, local sourcing philosophy of Patowmack Farm. We were ecstatic over our meals. It was a Friday, so we had choices of three tasting menus. We picked two and I had the wine pairings. All dishes were exquisitely presented and consisted of delectable combinations of ingredients, some of which were surprising and delicious. Since the menu/ingredients change often, there is no point in describing them. I will simply say we had one of the best meals we have ever had. We cannot wait to return. And that is the only downside. For us it is a 90 min. drive (Friday). Saturday next time!"

    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "We were a party of 6 to celebrate two birthdays. The restaurant is located up a gravel driveway on a hill overlooking the Potomac River. It is a scenic spot that you want to take advantage of. Ask for a table on the "window" side. If you are there for Sunday brunch the Bloody Mary's are exceptional. If you like spicy order it! The menu welcomed by name the birthday girls. The menu is constantly changing and depends on what is available from the farm and local purveyors. The only thing that is not "local" is the seafood. The choices are complex and fun to hear about as your server describes the choices. I recommend ordering an appetizer, entree, and dessert. It's a special occasion, take your time, enjoy it. I look forward to returning."

  • "Patowmack Farm is on a stunning piece of land with gorgeous views. Service was good albeit a little unecessarily snooty for such a quaint place. The real problem is the food is NOT good and the prices are laughable. I ordered a root salad and it had 5 pieces of carrot, about 5 leaves of spinach, and a few onions for about $12. It came in a giant bowl and took up about 1/20th of the bowl. The squid in the gazpacho was rubbery and bland and the soup had zero flavor. The carrot bread was bland and boring. This was a very disappointing meal. The owner was sweet and welcoming, but may I suggest a simpler menu the chef can handle. I'll pay $25 for a lunch entree, but it needs to be darn tasty."

  • "innovative food and great tasting too!...gracious service, sommelier and waiter very pleasant, unobtrusive elegant presence....would have liked a little more light to better appreciate the fine food presentation that the chef worked very hard to create. This was our third visit to the restaurant and it was interesting to see the evolution of the concept. We will be returning."

  • "We have been dining at Patowmack for about 5 years now. The food and service is always perfect. Presentation of each course is always spectacular and the taste is fresh and clean with each bite. They also respect their farming roots and present the essence of the garden each bite. The location is hilltop with a view of the river and service is usually in a greenhouse next to the garden. We love Patowmack and look forward to many more visits. "

  • "This is a farm to table restaurant. The spectacular view from the dining room is like no other. It is well worth the drive to Lovettsville. Food is amazing. Service is warm and welcoming. They take much pride in the preparation of each meal. It is difficult to recommend a dish because the menu constantly changes based on what is in season and fresh at the time. They take sustainability to a new level. We highly recommend The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm. This is truly a one of a kind gem."
