We had the best dinner here! Have always heard great things about it so my husband and I decided to give it a try. The service, the food and ambiance was out of this world. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion, on the pricier end but worth every penny. We will be back!
Amazing! Such a unique experience! Pawpaw Pavlova - wow!!!!!!
Great experience! Really enjoyed the scenary, the presentation and food.
This is the second year that we have gone to the Restaurant for my girlfriend's birthday. Last year we had an amazing experience. This year was good, but not extraordinary. We were greeted by a cold host who did not really greet us. He seemed like maybe he had a rough Friday night, as he coldly asked "what's the reservation number"? He did not smile, no happy birthday, he did not say anything else at all really. Strange. Our server was great. She was very friendly and helpful. She said happy birthday and seemed happy to serve us. The ambiance was great, it was quiet and light music was relaxing, and the view is amazing. The food was good, but not great. The appetizers and the desserts were our favorite part, the entrees were a bit underwhelming for the price. I got the rabbit, and the dish was kind of dry and did not have a whole lot of flavor- the tahini paste coated my mouth like peanutbutter and that is kind of all I tasted. It needed some color or spice or variation or something to improve it. My girlfriend got the spiced pork in a green sauce and it was just ok. We will probably be back next year again for her birthday, and I hope that our experience is more like last year than this year.
Still one of the best restaurants in the DMV. Every experience is new. Worth the drive every time.
This was our second visit to Patowmack to celebrate my wife's birthday and it was just as amazing as our first outing. Bottom line, the food is fantastic and the service is top-notch. The restaurant is a bit off the beaten path, so plan on a long commute to get there but its worth the trip.
Excellent service. Beautiful location and ambiance. Food was very good and creative, but short of amazing and delicious. Favorite dishes were the sweet ones. Would’ve been perfect ambiance for our special occasion celebration except for raucous table next to us. Best parts of the experience were the service, presentation, the view and the explanations of unusual ingredients used in preparation of the food. Overall a special place.
As usual, Chef Tarver King and the wait-staff prepared and served a marvelous meal. Our server, Dakota, was excellent. We have been semi-regulars for nearly a decade, and the creativity just keeps coming, with foraged, found, and mostly locally sourced ingredients.
The “ Hooray! “ moment on This trip came because i just KNEW that the area’s delightful seasonal paw-paws would be on the menu somewhere. Sure enough, paw paw creme was part of the dessert.
The owner, Beverly, still runs a great establishment after so many years. QC is tough to maintain over time. Patowmack remains destination dining.
Love the fact that the music is way in the background and not overwhelming . We sat outside .....what a view ! Lovely service . Fabulous food .......how do they do it every time ?
Exceptional food, exceptional service, and exceptional setting. What more could you ask for. The Progressive Menu was a surprise at every turn, with incredible presentation and flavors. Probably the best meal we ever had, and all the choices had already been made for us.
Great location with an amazing view. The food flavor profiles are unique and delicious. The freshness, organic and inspiration of the dishes are truly a refined experience.
Everything is sourced locally and the staff is dedicated and super friendly.
It was amazing. Went there for one year dating anniversary. We received a personalized menu to celebrate the event. The food was amazing and the location is beautiful.
Had reservations for brunch for our party of four at noon. Our outdoor table was excellently situated for a gorgeous afternoon view of the Potomac River and hills around it. The ambience can’t be beat; good air, quiet subdued setting that encouraged intimate conversation with our friends. Service staff were excellent in responsiveness and accommodation. Unfortunately some of the food entrees did not live up to their reputation. While appetizers and deserts were exquisite, the pork shoulder entree was dried out and tasteless; as well the briskets were tough. The one member of our party who had the fresh trout was in contrast extremely pleased. Overall, we love this venue for its setting and ambience and would come back again in spite of the fact that 3 of the 4 entries we were served fell far sort of what was expected for the price paid and the reputation of the place.
This place is a gem. We went for an anniversary brunch and sat outside under a tent with a picture perfect view of the mountains and the Potomac river in the distance. The food was fresh and delicious, service was spectacular, all around special experience. Will definitely be back!
Beautiful experience. Everything felt wholesome and the service was impeccable. Every course was unique and delicious.
Really great. Delicious 7 course with wine sampler with nice variety of farm fresh food and many interesting flavors.
We went here for my husband’s birthday. It exceeded all expectations. We will be back!
My boyfriend took me for my birthday and it was incredible the view was amazing as well as the staff! They really made you feel welcome and had a good time throughout the meal. Would 100% Recommend as well as go back
An absolutely lovely venue with delicious food. This is one of our favorite restaurants!
Amazing experience, great for anniversary/date night, extraordinary food servings- dinner is pre-fixed with many small courses, they seem small but you will fill up! Never experienced such combinations and flavors of food. As the course is pre-fixed, so is the price. It is the most expensive place we have ever eaten but we enjoyed the creativity and cozy setting. Strongly recommend to try.
Fantastic experience! Price keeps it as a special occasion venue.
This place was great. The food was excellent, service was bar-none, and I'm looking forward to our next visit (if I can get a reservation).
It's impossible to have less than a stellar experience at the Restaurant at Potowmack Farm. Beverly and team are absolutely the best.
Amazing ambiance, great food and service. Definitely worth the drive. The scenery is amazing, food outstanding and the flavors are indescribable. Go for the wine pairing, we’ll worthnit
Fabulous in every way. Can’t wait to return! Great, innovative food, gorgeous scenery, friendly, helpful and “go out of their way” service!!
As always, a stellar experience. I think this was our best visit yet.
Continuously surpasses expectations. The innovative menu, the quality of the food, and the truly outstanding service and attention to detail always make The Restaurant at Patowmack Farms an over-the-top experience.
There is just nothing else like it in N Va. The views are spectacular and even on a very warm day, the patio under the tent is quite comfortable for brunch. Creative, beautifully presented food and immaculate service. Loved the interesting choices on the wine list. Expensive, but a must do spot for any special occasion or just when you want to treat yourself to a relaxing, fabulous meal.
Fabulous view, food, service, and philosophy. Very enjoyable experience.
We sat outside on the patio and the views were wonderful. 9 courses - small but filling- and so delicious!! Wine list was a little limited.
My husband and I came for our Anniversary. The food was amazing and the service top notch!
We have been to The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm several times for both lunch and dinner. The service has always been attentive and courteous. The servers know the menu well, a bit of a challenge since it changes every. The changes in the menu are part of the fun. The chef is very creative and, in season, makes good use of the products grown on the farm. Every dish we have had has been excellent. We plan to return soon.
Lovely setting, service and food. Everything was personalized to perfection
What a hidden gem. Gorgeous views. Amazing food. Much of the food is sourced on the property, the rest locally. We both had the beef brisket with duck egg omelet.... so much truffle, was awesome.
Everything about this dinner was top notch!
What a lovely restaurant and a beautiful view! We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. The service was excellent and presentation was unique and classy. The food was outstanding! All of us tried something new. Plus, we got to walk the farm afterwards and met the baby turkeys. cute. :-)
Shortly after I made online reservations, I got a phone call to check on any food allergies or special dietary needs. My family has neither, but it made me feel like we were going to a friend's house for dinner-above and beyond.
The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm is always an amazing experience. While it's a fairly expensive meal, I've found that on the occasion we visit we always have excellent service, amazing views and a selection of curated seasonal dishes prepared in unexpected ways. Definitely worth the cost of admission.
My wife and I dined here this past Saturday, and it did not disappoint. If you're not familiar with the restaurant, it's a true farm to table experience, with all of the produce being picked directly from the owner's farm. As far as I'm aware, they do not have livestock on the farm, but all of their seafood/meat/poulty is locally sourced. The ambiance is interesting...you're seated in what's basically a greenhouse, which is definitely a departure from what one might expect for a fine dining restaurant. That said, the view from the dining room is beautiful, with visibility of the Point of Rocks Bridge over the Potomac. There were heavy thunderstorms the evening we were there, which definitely made the experience unique.
Overall the food and service was very good. As one can imagine, there is a focus on the produce that comes with the farm, but the preparations and presentations are very forward-thinking. There were two protein courses: rockfish and pork shoulder, both of which were excellent. The pork was fork tender and melted in my mouth.
It was a great dining experience, and we'll definitely plan to return in the future!
Truly unique dining experience. The food was creative and tailored to our preferences. A culinary experience in each of the nine courses.
This was an unique and most surprising experience. The food was excellent and inventive, and the service was top notch. Caitlin is an amazing server who made the night. We'll definitely go back.
