The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm Ratings and Reviews
This was my second time at the restaurant and I left feeling disappointed. It was a bummer because it was my husband’s first time. We were “welcomed” by a surly, male server outside the restaurant. He was so unfriendly, I assumed he worked behind the scenes.m because he seemed bothered by people. He turned out to be a server-not ours thankfully. Our server seemed unprepared and flustered by questions. She frequently had to read food descriptions to respond. She was also totally disinterested, not seeming to care about much.
While our soup was good, the main courses and dessert (a recommendation) were nothing special. In fact we didn’t even eat the dessert.
The service was fantastic. The owner was gracious and greeted us when arrived. I tried to make small talk with the sommelier and he wasn’t having it. The food just didn’t do it for us. There were a lot of small bites to start but nothing overly creative. A Thai soup that was very salty. And a guinea hog entrée that was chewy and had one of the oddest textures I’ve ever experienced.
The dessert was great but I don’t think we’ll be back, which is a bummer.
We went for our anniversary about a month ago and while eating dinner made a reservation to take my mom here when she came up for thanksgiving weekend which was tonight. It was fantastic. We love this restaurant. The food and is really flavorful and tasty. The presentation is like none other. The service is impeccable .
This was one of our favorite Thanksgiving meals of all time. Originally I thought we might be asked to choose one item from each of the 3 courses; however, it was served family style at our own table and every item on the long menu was brought to our table. Absolutely delicious!!! Highly recommend the farm to table restaurant.
Exceptional service and dining experience. We have been once before, a couple of years ago. We have found the food preparations unique, intriguing and satisfying.
The service is absolutely impeccable!
Thanks to the staff of Patowmack Farm for a lovely evening.
The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm is truly one of the most memorable dining experiences you can have in the Washington, DC area. And their annual Feast in the Forest is an event you will never forget. The Feast in the Forest is a "family style" dining event held on the banks of Catoctin Creek, in the woods where many of the meal's ingredients can be found growing naturally.
We went for the Brunch at the restaurant. We were so excited to try this restaurant having read all the great reviews, however, except for the starters which were wonderful we could barely eat more than a few mouthfuls of our entree and dessert. The food combinations did not work for us at all. What a disappointment.
Impressive dining experience! We very much appreciated the delicious food using local /fresh ingredients and the perfectly executed presentation combined with local history. We've been to other fine establishments (e.g., Inn at Little Washington, The Jefferson, Restaurant Nora) and this restaurant has become our fav. in terms of total culinary experience. We heartily recommend it.
One of the most delicious and creative meals we've ever had! We were eating foods we'd never even considered trying, and things we'd never experienced before, and all was wonderful. Interesting and entertaining presentations with each course. Excellent wine pairings. Every course a delight. Great service and setting. We'll be going back. Well worth the price and the trip.
Creative chef ! What a wonderful meal and what wonderful service. Thank you for wrapping up the menu for us to take with us so we can look over all the wonderful courses. We decided to order the wine pairings and we were so pleased that we tried so many new wines ....just the right amount of each wine for each course too. Loved the presentations and the helpful description as each course was served .
Lovingly curated multi-course tasting menu built on locally grown and foraged ingredients, including crafted cocktails featuring local distilled spirits infused with on-site cultivated herbs and honey. Indoor and al fresco dining options sited with stunning views of Point of Rocks Bridge, Potomac River, Maryland and Virginia heights. Each presentation artfully prepared and uniquely presented, and thoroughly explained by attentive and friendly servers. Highly recommend the suggested wine parings, which feature world-wide tasting selections that complement and enhance each serving; also the seasonal cocktails that are highly herbal and aromatic. Early sittings ( 5 pm onward) enable simultaneous enjoyment of late afternoon sunlight, shadows, and twilight, so don't be discouraged by limited late evening availability, the farm setting and surrounding landscape are to be savored as much as the cuisine and early sittings maximize this experience. There are little revelations in each course and in each presentation; there is a an exquisite attention to detail, and gracious, welcoming hospitality with a complete absence of pretension. The kitchen's humble respect for each ingredient - whether a milkweed leaf, a loin from local heritage pork, a gleaming, milky oyster, or the freshest blueberries, combined with the evident technical skill with knife and fire, create the building blocks for a dining experience that transcends the sum of its parts. This is a serious and intentional engagement with herbs, fruits, nuts, seeds, grains vegetables, mollusks, fish, and porcine - and in the narratives of food pathways and history, in a perfect setting. Special concern and care are shown each patron, who are contacted several days prior to the visit and asked about food sensitivities. The complete and unique experience makes an evening here a tremendous dining value.
We were celebrating our anniversary. The chef had just won the Rammy for chef of the year and he did not disappoint. The menu was prix fix with a set menu. The dishes were locally sourced and many items came from their own garden. The theme centered around the Indians that were native to the area. Each course was an interesting and inventive, not to mention absolutely delicious, surprise. We were ooing and awwing with every bite. The waiter gave us a detailed explanation of each dish, its source, connection to the Indians as well as the ingredients. It was truly a wonderful experience not to be missed. The menu changes regularly and they always ask about dietary restrictions. Cannot wait for our next visit...
This was a wine dinner with paired wines and food. The overall experience was underwhelming. We've been for brunch and found the restaurant to be five stars across the board. Last night was not the same experience. The wine pours we're tasting size, the food didn't pair well with the wine, and wasn't the same quality as our other experiences. For us, it was a miss at a place that usually hits home runs.
