My wife and I wanted to try a place we have never been in Norther Virginia that served more gourmet food. After looking at reviews, we decided to try Farrah Olivia. We were impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. We liked it's convenient location in Crystal City. We, however, were not impressed with the view, for we were in a single, windowless room within Kora, a larger Italian restaurant. We learned that the chef owns both, but started with Farrah Olivia - a finer dining experience to Kora. The night we went, the Kora staff helped support the patrons of Farrah Olivia. While their attire was consistent with Kora, it was a step down from the expectations of Farrah Olivia. Nevertheless, the service was helpful and kind.
