Food is good. Fresh and well prepared. But the Menu never seems to change. It could use some updating. Service was attentive. Overall experience was good. It is a reliable place in Old City for consistently good food and service.
Had the chilaquiles which as delicious and my sister had the turkey/avocado club. Great food great service, this was lunch after the spa. Perfect! Happy hour drinks. Definitely will return
Came here for Sunday brunch. Healthy options (DELICIOUS!) and awesome “brunch happy hour” with 1/2 price drinks until 2 pm. Great service, good food, cool
Atmosphere. We will definitely be back!
Always good. We are somewhat regulars.
Food was amazing. Ambience was great. Service was spectacular!
Always a good meal at this restaurant. Brunch specials are great, and I love the 1/2 price drinks from 11am - 2pm.
Wow- really wonderful. Great neighborhood vibe. Low key, laid back but these people are serious about food. Our server Megan was delightful and professional.
If I lived anywhere near the restaurant it would be my neighborhood go to place. Thanks so much for a great night
We had a terrific time at FARMiCiA. It was busy but not overcrowded during Friday happy hour and they could accommodate us right away. The food was excellent and the service was good. The staff was pleasant and friendly. A great place for family or a few friends.
Food was over salted.
It was so good we ate there 2 days in a row!!
Farmacia is a great breakfast spot. I enjoyed a good meal and loved the 1/2 off drinks during brunch happy hour. The food was farm fresh and tasty. I loved the brie and toasted french bread and a great pesto. The restaurant was vibrant and lively with family and friends.
Fantastic food and service! Our food came quickly and was delicious. Very cool, cozy, upscale but unpretentious vibe inside. A bit pricier so save this for a special occasion.
The service was very slow (the restaurant wasn’t that busy) and the food was absolutely horrible. I ordered the Cajun shrimp small plate and had to send it back. The sauce on the shrimp was practically inedible. I have never sent anything back for not liking it but I had to on this occasion. My husband ordered the steak medium rare and received a medium well piece of leather on his plate. I would NEVER go back here.
Excellent food fast service
Always an excellent dinner here with a menu that changes often. Tried the sword which was on special that night and loved it. Also enjoyed the meatballs which were large enough to share as was the brussells sprouts appetizer. Both of these appetizers were excellent. Service is always good if not overly friendly. We've only had a handful of servers here that were more than perfunctory but that's my only complaint about this gem of a restaurant in Old City.
I love this restaurant. The food and service are always great, and I love that I can eat vegetarian with non-veg friends. The vegan cake with avocado coconut ice cream was amazing!
Rarely disapponted when visiting (visited occasionally when visiting area and now am area resident). Staff are always pleasant and food does not disappoint. Location works well for us as well
Another satisfying meal at Farmacia. My dining partner has hearing loss and they went out of their way to give us a quiet table. The server was excellent--took the time to describe several beers on taps and, as a result, the one I chose was perfect for me. Food always excellent and beautifully presented. Prices are righteous. Great Happy Hour (all beer, wine by the glass, and drinks are 1/2 price) and they have starting offering a 10% discount if you pay the bill in cash.
Try the French Lentil Salad--you won't be disappointed.
Top quality food, service and ambiance. Half-price drinks before 7:00 was a nice surprise.
The food was just fantastic! They had a delicious bread selection & butter they brought to the table. Then the food, oh my goodness! It was so flavorful and cooked to perfection.
Excellent service, great food, not loud at all, looked great for groups, but we were only 3. Would definitely return and have already recommended it to friends.
Farmicia consistently good!! We arrived early, sat at the bar, and we were still seated at our table before our reservation time. Great! Very accomodating. Service was great, and the food top notch. A gem in Old City, Philadelphia.
The restaurant was packed for brunch on a cold Feb morning. Our original reservation was for 1:45 but when I had to add 2 people it was pushed back to 2:30pm. Cocktails were great and everyone loved their food.
It was just ok. Coffee could've been better
Relaxed comfortable dining room. We each liked the nova lox. Portions were large
The ambiance was perfect for a girls night dinner. I like how you are able to bring your own wine, but they still have a very good bar menu. The salmon was cooked perfectly. Will return!
Yum. Good food. Good wine and the coffee cheese cake is absolutely insane how good it is
good for a business meeting. Enough options for everyone to find something they like. It isn't too loud, so you don't have issues hearing what the other people in your party are saying
We went to Farmacia for the first time for dinner as we usually do Sunday brunch. The service was great and I love the ambiance with the twinkle lights. My girlfriend and I both had the Tuna which was prepared amazingly over chickpea puree. We also had a great olive sampler for an appetizer. Can't wait to go again.
Service was so slow, we had to leave before our entrees were served. I have eaten here several times and service and food was excellent.
It was fairly busy when we went around 2pm. We had brunch there. EVERYTHING was amazing. I had the banana French toast and shrimp and grits. My boyfriend had the lump crab omelette and we shared the nova salmon. I don’t even write reviews but this place was delicious. We were able to get a round of half off drinks in before 2, so that was awesome. Service was good, I’ll be returning soon.
Had a delicious brunch here. The waiter recommended the Chilaquilles and they were outstanding!
Third time eating breakfast/brunch here since moving here last month. LOVE this place, best French toast ever!!
Had two specials: Parpadelle with Chicken Sausage, Mushrooms and Pecorino; and Grilled Bronzino, with Sautéed Greens and Saffron Rice. Both outstanding And so was our waiter!!
Served my soup- no spoon. Never told it was spicy or had a healthy kick to it.
Served cappuccino- no sweetener.... when told, still did not bring it- had to get it myself.
Service was off- inattentive.
Were there before and will return.
I've been here twice.. once for Sunday brunch.. and once for a business lunch. Both times I was going to be in the area so it was a convenient choice. I appreciate the healthy quality of the food and the attentive service. Overall, Farmicia a "good" restaurant, but I don't find it to be "great" like many other people do. I would go again if I was in Old City, but wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to go there.
This is a great spot for a special occasion. The food is sourced locally and prepared fresh. You can taste the quality in the ingredients. The mixed drinks are creative and the wine list is pretty good. I’ll be coming back to try their brunch sometime soon!
In town for work... They sat us at the quietest table in the restaurant upon request. Food was fantastic. I had the soup of day, apple carrot, I think. It was delicious and dairy free. I also had the squash risotto croquettes which were amazing. If I lived here I would definitely go back.
We went for a Sunday Brunch. It was a rainy Sunday so folks were lingering longer. We needed to wait for our table. the area at the front to wait is very small. Wait staff had to be careful in getting around. When we were seated our waiter was very friendly. Let us order drinks quickly to get the Sunday Brunch Happy Hour Price ( very nice ). He answered all of our questions about the menu. We ordered the Cheese Plate and the Lox plate for apps. They were both large enough for the party of 4 that we were. The main courses ( Crab Omelette, Tuna Salad, Chicken and waffles, quesadilla all were prepared to order and very tasty. The only down side I would comment on we made our reservations via Open Table I made mention of what the celebration was for. At no time did anyone from hostess to waiter make mention of it. The staff needs to pay closer attention to what folks write into their Open Table reservation forms.
