My fiancé and I had a great date night here! Enjoyed the Trio of Cheeses, Tuna entree and Roasted Chicken. My fiancé has Celiac Disease and the waiter was attentive and assured us that everything was prepared safely. We will definitely be back!

Went for brunch. It started off rocky as the table we were waiting for was given to another couple, which was very disappointing. The service otherwise was good and the food was very good.

Great experience. 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 sat at the bar which was busy; it was really understaffed and very difficult to get the attention for fresh drinks or order additional food items. 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.

The hostesses and (my) servers either are displeased with working Saturday mornings or just hate service work. 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.

Our lunch was delicious and the service was outstanding. We loved our waiter who was attentive and responsive. We also support Farmicia ‘s policies on local sourcing and ecology. They don’t use straws. Yay!

Food was very tasty. Service was somewhat disorganized. Salads that had names including ricotta, crab etc were mostly green s with no more than a single mouthful of the listed things. Tuna entrée was excellent.

Our server was not interested in serving us at all; he actually looked bothered every time we would call him over. The food is nothing to brag about, so it did not justify the prices. If you can go somewhere else, do so.

I loved that they offered a turkey bacon option for their shrimp and grits! And slice options for their Peach brioche French Toast for those of us who didn’t want to order an entire second plate.

Our waiter was friendly and swift too!

To start, our server Shane, was awesome. 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.

At our table, we ordered the calamari and two salads to share as appetizers, and we were blown away by them. 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!
