The food was terrific; the new chef is excellent. Ambiance could have been better, esp. given it was a holiday. We know that COVID restrictions mean outside eating where possible, but the restaurant should have anticipated people wanting to eat inside and planned for that, as there was more than enough room inside to accommodate. The main problem was the service, which usually is excellent. It started out well, but deteriorated to the point where we moved empty plates to the side of the table as a hint to remove them. Even with that, it was difficult to catch the wait staff's attention (the restaurant was not busy.) Not what we've usually experienced at this high end restaurant.

Remind diners that the bridge at Dickerson on Route 28 is closed. The detour takes about 45 minutes. Better to come up 270 to Urbana, catch 80, then south on 28 before heading toward Point of Rocks and Rt 15

We had a wonderful brunch on their outside patio. They should be used as a model on how to provide a safe dining experience without sacrificing a welcoming atmosphere, great service and delicious, inventive food. We plan on going back soon.

It was our wedding anniversary and the flowers at our table were wonderful!! Food was superb and service fantastic. We ate indoors and a huge rainstorm hit the area after about a 1/2 hour. We took our time, had some coffee, and our wonderful desert. My wife and I reminisced about our wedding event 52 years ago and before we knew it the rain stopped. No one rushed us at all and their staff wished us a Happy Anniversary as we were leaving. We will be back for sure with some of our neighbors. Thank you for such a wonderful evening to celebrate our Anniversary!

We’ve always loved the Restaurant at Patowmack Farm. The scenery and food never disappoint. We also greatly appreciated the care staff took during the pandemic with temperature screening of patrons and a requirement to wear a mask when not at your table. Thank you for a lovely time. We will be back soon.

Lovely place. Very expensive, particularly since food portions very small and inadequate. Delicious food, though. Wine pairing was quite expensive, given the small pours (and one of the four was a very sweet port).

We have been going to The Patowmack Farm Restaurant for over 10 years and they never disappoint. We were thrilled to go for our first time dining out again. What a treat! And safety is as top a priority as the service and menu. ❤️ we look forward to MANY more visits to the farm.

A continuously reliable experience in the quiet country overlooking the Potomac. As always, the brunch menu while limited was eclectic, original, and expertly curated while the service was attentive but unobtrusive. A wonderful experience.

Excellent meal, beautiful location. My one complaint is the food was served too fast. Would have liked more time between the courses. We were served our first course before we got our initial cocktails. Our table was not going to used again, so there was no need to rush.

Our family has been a resident of Loudoun County for over 15 years- my point being, I wish we had come to your restaurant sooner! Everything was delightful and I hope to make this a restaurant of choice for birthdays, mother's day, etc. in the future. Thank you! We especially loved the parsnip soup, beef brisket, and the light and scenery :)

Excellent anniversary dinner here: welcoming service, very interesting courses (but more than interesting, tasty!) Appreciated that the tables were far apart, given the Covid-19 risk. Beautiful views over the Potomac. One small drawback: it was chilly at our table near the door. A few space heaters might help.

The Chilean-inspired Sunday Supper was fantastic! The dishes placed on our table were a veritable feast for the eyes and palate - beautifully presented, interesting and delicious flavors, and the wine the sommelier recommended paired perfectly with our meal.
This is was our second visit to Potowmack Farm, the first being a Progressive Dinner menu a few weeks ago for a friend's 60th birthday. It was one of the best dining experiences of our lives (and we've had some good ones all over the world). We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves and appreciates great food and creative culinary/dining experiences.

DELICIOUS FOOD! Very beautiful view and wonderfully calming and inviting. The food was delicious! Every course! Creative menu and wonderful ambiance - gently spoken waiters helpful and kind. The price was good for a locally sourced high end meal, (I live in the DC so for me it was low priced high end meal). 10/10 for me— would highly recommend!

The only complaint we had was that the restaurant assured us that they would accommodate pescatarians but the rolls were fried in beef fat which we could not eat and they did not offer us an alternative. Also, the final candy course included a truffle with bacon which we couldn't eat and not only did they not have a substitute for it, but I had to ask if we could get something to replace it. For such a wonderful restaurant otherwise, this seemed really out of character.

This is one of the most extraordinary restaurants I’ve ever eaten at. In the Washington, DC, area, it rival - and sometimes betters - even the Inn at Little Washington.
