The hostess was pleasant and sat us immediately. The location of the restaurant is perfect in Old city. The waiter was ok. When I asked him about the green apples on the tables he told me it was just a gimmick but feel free to eat the apple. The crab cakes were good and seemed fresh by the taste. The salmon was not seasoned and was very bland. The St. Peters fish pot was also not seasoned and was nothing to write home about. The sides, broccoli and roasted potatoes were good. Overall, we were not happy with the food. The bill came to $101 and we didnt even have drinks or desserts. We thought this place would have been better but it is disappointingly subpar. Unapologetically, we will not be back.

This is one of our favorite restaurants and it did not disappoint for a Mother's Day brunch. The menu is innovative and healthy, farm to table before it was popular. Always would recommend this restaurant.

Unfortunately the host had such an attitude when we checked in, it soured the entire experience for us. My kingdom for customer service to come back en vogue. Won’t be returning.

Wine came as soon as expected. Waited a long time for entree. Food was cold and needed to be reheated. Waiter was charming but seemed to have too many tables. Bread was never offered. Very disappointing experience. Have loved Farmacia in the past. If we come back will eat at the bar.

Busy brunch/lunch on a Saturday yet food was well-prepared and the server, while busy, was polite and attentive. We we're able to avoid waiting for a table by having a reservation through OpenTable.

Everything was good, the service was good. The only problem I had which wasn't a big deal is the outside tables are on such an incline, it made it hard to get comfortable.

One of my go-to places when dining with folks who would willingly call themselves picky eaters.
Sounds like I’m backing onto this compliment, BUT I love their food and the tonic cocktails are 💥💥.
Fun, delicious dinner with visiting friends before an #AtlasObscura event.

This will be our second time at Farmicia. It was so good the first time we stopped back within 3 weeks later. Food again was on point, delicious. You cannot beat 1/2 price brunch cocktails and they also were delicious. We have found a new favorite brunch spot and can’t wait to come back to try some dinner options. If you are making reservations, request window seating. Big windows for you to enjoy your meal and people watch. Outside seating was available however it was raining when we visited last. Great job again Farmicia, both with food, and hospitality.

Excellent neighborhood restaurant in the Independence Park area. It's a casual bistro with some excellent dishes, including a rare seared tuna and, for dessert, rhubarb strawberry shortcake. Veggie and vegan options too.

Three sisters celebrating two birthdays. The Spicy Mango Mojitas, a refreshing start. Fish entree and eggplant rollup, served hot, warmed us on this rainy day. Coffee and chocolate cake with ice cream and fudge drizzle kept us in a celebratory mood. Our waitress/ photographer was so sweet and accommodating. Prices were reasonable, especially after the 10% off if paying with cash. So glad we tried Farmicia.

We love the trendy cocktails and how many gluten free options they have! The servers and bartenders are all very friendly! It is fast being one of our favorite brunch spots!!!!

Tim was so attentive and helpful. We arrived 20 minutes early and were told we could not be seated because there were reservations ahead of us. We waited outside in the sunshine. Then people without reservations walked in and were seated. We were confused and concerned. Not a great start but the drinks were amazing, food outstanding and our server Tim made up for any concerns we initially might have had. A memorable Easter experience for sure.
