There were three of us friends that got together for dinner. Brought a bottle of red wine with us. Split 4 different small plates and spent less than $20 per person which i was pleasantly surprised by. Great service. Food was great. Would recommend.

We managed to order the special donuts for dessert and they were horrible—literally dripping with grease. The rest of the food we ordered was delish.

Only saw our server twice, to take the order and deliver the check. The water guy though was helpful and assisted us instead as he was more available. Left the bill with the hostess as we left, using a gift card, cause the server never returned. The food is good but would not recommend the breakfast burrito if you are looking for something more than a few scattered potatoes on a plate and some eggs and sausage wrapped in a tortilla. It’s not much to look at and for $12 I would have thought it would look better, but tastes alright. The vegan burrito is much more tasty and eye pleasing, cheaper too. If you arrive at 945 you won’t be able to order brunch since it starts at 10. Our server didn’t even come over till we’ll past 10 and still was not allowed to order brunch since we arrived “too early”. I’ve had drinks here before and was excited to have breakfast, but this was a terrible way to start a good Saturday.

The food is nothing to brag about, so it did not justify the prices. If you can go somewhere else, do so.

Very attentive and friendly. My niece and I shared our brunch meal. We had Eggs Benedict with Canadian Bacon and Cesare Salad, both were delicious and enough for both of us. We did start by having a Bloody Mary and a mimosa, also delicious. A nice way to start our weekend. Highly recommend FARMiCiA.

I was expecting solid farm-to-table ingredients and execution, and I was surprised and delighted by the flavor combinations, preparation, and innovation. For main courses, we ordered the duck, the mega-dose of vegetables and grains, the eggplant cannelloni, and a pair of salads (lentil salad and kale/beet). We all sampled each other's plates, and every last bite was delicious. We shared a crème brûlée, vegan lemon-ginger cake, and a cheesecake. They were all excellent. Our family made reservations here to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and planned to drive from our home in central PA. We ended up having to buy a new tire on the way, and the restaurant was very understanding about our moving the time of the reservation. It was a wonderful evening and the restaurant exceeded my expectations in every way!

Great service and bloody marys. Would definitely try again. One tip - Get there at 10 for brunch, it gets crowded fast.

Drinks and all food courses were delicious. Service personnel were attentive and the meal was well paced. Very enjoyable. The restaurant's policy of giving diners the option to bring in their own wine with no up-charge or corkage fee is a prime example of their desire to do everything they can to make dining at FARMiCiA a comfortable, accommodating and pleasant experience.

Our water glasses appeared fairly quickly and our cocktails were served in reasonable time. The mango gazpacho was delicious on a hot summer night, with just the right amount of sweetness, savoriness, and cooling crunch. The Metropolitan Bakery bread is always perfect, especially with the herbed butter. Our meals (tuna and duck) had a lovely presentation and were well-portioned. The weakest part of my duck meal was the bacon hash, which was starchy and did not add much to the meal. Sauces were a bit skimpy also in both dishes. Service was less than stellar. All courses were served at a nice pace, but my dining partner's gazpacho was delivered without a spoon. We had to ask for one. My wine ordered with the meal did not appear until I was half way through the meal, and I had to ask a server to remind my waiter for it. It was delivered with a hasty apology. Other than those annoying snafus, our meal was delightful overall. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and though fairly full throughout most of the evening, the noise level was very tolerable.
