Every course of the meal was excellent. The textures and flavors of the dishes were unique and outstanding.
The service was excellent and the view was superb.
The food was great. The wait staff seems a tad disorganized. We were there last month and never offered coffee or tea. This time we were so I just learned they forgot it last time. On this visit, they were confused as we got two desserts - not complaining there. The food was great and the owner comes and speaks with everyone. This is our second trip there. Another thing is I called in asking for low sodium but I don't think they accommodated my special diet request as things were a tad salty.
Fabulous experience ! The post-Covid kitchen is led by a creative and skilled chef who is incorporating the local produce into the menu in delightful gastronomic treats that satisfy the palate and aesthetic soul. The patio has a wonderful valley view and full sight of Point of Rock Bridge in the distance. Service was attentive, well informed about the menu, and unobtrusive. The wine pairings for our dinner were well chosen! 5 stars plus experience.
Fabulous location, well paced service for the most part. We went with the progressive dinner which obviated the need for menu choices! Dishes came with detailed explanations of each course and we had a visit from the chef which was appreciated. A couple of dishes - soup and pasta - were less than stellar, bout otherwise eating excellent. Minor quibble - service fell off later in the evening as the went on and the restaurant …. Big plus - separate menu for my lactose intolerant wife
Amazing!! Best spot in Virginia.
The setting is intimate but with beautiful views of the distant valley. The grounds were a no frills - perhaps reflecting the farm that it is. The opportunity to share the nearby herb garden and some colorful perennials adjacent to the entrance and terrace could be taken to enhance area. The main seating on a flagstone terrace holds about a dozen tables spaced out under a large tent. I can see how the spaces between stones could catch a chair let (or a high heel) and should probably be reset (this was not an issue that affected my rating).
The food was unique and eclectic - full of delightful surprises and piquant flavors. Modest portions were spaced out to be enjoyed in an unhurried manner. While not a 3* experience the food was delicious and nicely presented The service was attentive without being intrusive offering interesting explanations without being pretentious.
I would definitely bring foodie friends and others seeking great food in an impressive setting.
Celebrating a big anniversary we couldn’t have had a more special evening. Food was amazing, service spectacular and the view !!!!
Absolutely worth the drive! Fantastic brunch. Scenic views.
Thank you for the kind review. We are very delighted that you enjoyed your dining experience with us. We hope to see you again in the near future. All the best, Beverly, Owner
The best of the best. Produced supplied on grounds or near by. Beautiful place from ambiance to meal presentation!
Thank. you for your kind comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your dining experience with us. All the best, Beverly, Owner
Repair buckboard driveway into parking area.
Make website more intuitive and info easy to find.
Tell visitors about the limited Summer seating choices...outside in the heat in a tented rustic area or inside a poorly cooled greenhouse.
Seems like when it's hot you're hot or when it's cold you'll be cold dining here.
The furnishings in the tented area were basic and uncomfortable...it was hot and required many more fans to provide ventilation than were present.
Thank you for your comments. You are right that the driveway needs to be graded. We have an appointment - waiting for the contractor. I was surprised that you did not enjoy the gorgeous view. We will heed your advice about the fans, although I thought you sat inside. The conservatory is heated in the cool weather. We appreciate you coming and are delighted that you enjoyed the food and drink. Please accept our humble apologies that we did not meet your expectations. Beverly, Owner
The food was amazing!! I loved how the chef used locally sourced ingredients in all the dishes and everything was so thoughtful!! We can't wait to go back!
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are so happy that you enjoyed your dining experience. We look forward to seeing you again. Beverly, Owner
The food was distinctive with a diverse array of subtle flavors and textures. The house made crackers and spread to begin were excellent; the tomato salad was outstanding with freshness and enhancing dressing. The minestrone soup was bursting with flavor. Each of the courses was presented in dishes that were unique and appropriate. The servers were efficient and friendly; it was a special treat to have the owner refill our water glasses and tell us something of the history of her establishing this organic farm.
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We sincerely appreciate your kind and gracious comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your dining experience with us and look forward to seeing you again. All the best, Beverly, Owner

Becca was amazing. Knowledgeable, attentive but not TOO attentive, friendly, funny… all around fantastic. Service was impeccable. The food was, as always, absolutely gorgeous and delicious! We appreciated the chef taking a few minutes to come out and say hello as well. What a nice touch. Overall beautiful experience.
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I will certainly pass the information on to Becca. We are delighted that you enjoyed your dining experience and hope to see you again in the near future. Beverly, Owner

We felt the progressive menu flowed very well and the construction of flavors and cooking techniques for each course were well done. The wine pairings were complimentary to the food served and heightened our enjoyment of the meal. The late summer afternoon, the view from our table, and attentive service, all made it a memorable meal. We felt our experience ranked well with meals at several Michelin-starred restaurants.
Thank you for the very kind review of our restaurant. We truly appreciate it and look forward to seeing you in the near future. We are delighted that you enjoyed your overall experience. Stay well and all the best, Beverly, Owner
Definitely one of the best restaurants in the region. This visit was particularly inspired. We felt the platings were stunning and the food was tremendous as always. If you have the opportunity to go, I couldn’t recommend the experience more highly.
Thank you so much for the very kind review of our restaurant. We are so happy that you enjoyed your dining experience with us. We welcome you and appreciate you! Beverly, Owner
Fantastic Restaurant!!! Food was wonderful!!! I am a good cook and enjoy cooking but when eating out I want something to WOW me!!! This is the place!!
Thank you for the kind review. Glad we were able to meet your expectations. We appreciate you!! Beverly, Owner
Such a lovely place. Food was fresh and oh so yummy. Presentation was amazing, from the time you were seated to when you paid your bill. Can’t wait to go back.
Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your dining experience. We look forward to seeing you at another time. All the best, Beverly, Owner
Earth to table has never been so good. Beautiful location, view, and no pretense, to start. The drinks and each course were special. Did not feel rushed or overwhelmed. 9 courses including a specially prepared farm egg, the spinach, tuna tartare with an edge, risotto, chicken and grits, a strawberry lemonade palate cleanser (calling it lemonade does not do it service), and then three way blueberry dessert (macerated, sorbet and fresh). All local and everything picked before dinner. Wine pairings also worth it. Weather was perfect which also helped as dining outside with that view clearly enhances the experience. Great service. Attentive and knowledgeable wait staff. Well worth the hour drive from DC.
Thank you for the very kind and incredible review of our restaurant. We are delighted that you enjoyed your entire experience. We appreciate YOU!! We look forward to seeing you again. All the best, Beverly, Owner

The food was creative and excellently prepared. The kitchen accommodated gluten intolerance without skipping a beat. The service was top notch and the meal was paced very well. Kudos to the staff and the chef.

As always, Patowmack Farm provides a wonderful dining experience. We enjoyed our Father's Day brunch and loved the family style dining for that day.
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are pleased that you enjoyed your dining experience and look forward to seeing you again. Always a pleasure, Beverly, Owner
Father's Day themed-musical selection, family-style "Sunday meal" with all the flavors, panache and wonderful service ... what more can one ask for? As always, The Restaurant did not disappoint and, once again, they're extra attentive for those who have to be careful of gluten (which no one would have really realized sans a side of orzo) if it was not specifically called out by our server.
So great to see you and have you join us for Father's Day. Look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Thank you for the kind review. We truly appreciate you taking the time. Beverly, Owner
Amazing. Innovative and delicious. Each of the nine courses was a revelation. Fabulous setting and all the staff are friendly and enthusiastic. It isn’t a cheap night out but for a special occasion it is a good value when you compare it to The Inn at Little Washington or Minibar in DC. Could not recommend more highly.
Thank you for the kind and generous review. We are happy that you enjoyed your dining experience with us. We appreciate you taking the time and look forward to seeing you again. Beverly, Owner
Wonderful experience -- a fantastic creative locally-sourced menu, terrific wine list and pairings, warmly attentive staff, and amazing natural beauty. Highly recommend! We look forward to going again.

We drove from Baltimore per friend’s recommendation and had a very good experience.
We went for brunch rather than dinner on a Saturday. The weather was great and we were seated outside. The view was great! The place is on the hill overlooking the mountains and the river.
The service was great and the restaurant is quite upscale for the location.
The menu was very short and it was somewhat difficult for my partner to choose a meal since he doesn’t eat pork and steak very seldom. The portions were very small but the food and presentation were exquisite.
We enjoyed the dining experience a lot and wool be back for dinner.
For those who drives sports cars or other low vehicles, you might not make it up the hill because the road is not paved and incline is about 10-12%.
Despite the rain, the experience was fantastic. The staff / chef accommodated my pregnant wife’s dietary restrictions and the alternatives were perfect. The food and win pairing was incredible and very unique / creative. We will certainly be back soon.
Our special annual celebration that never dissapoints with a new, seasonal menu each visit. Ambiance and service is delightful. I overheard someone's apt assessment that: the quality is so good without any pretentiousness. We will be back!
Service, experience, food, everything was amazing!!! 10 outa 10 for us! Want to come back when menu changes. Servers were ALL wonderful,helpful, new their knowledge on everything. they even put my boyfriends name on our menu for his birthday. It was over all the best experience. Cant wait to go back!
Thank you all!
Thank you chef!
A flawless special-occasion dinner spot. Menu is extremely well thought out and freshest ingredients used. The view is amazing. Sit outside in the covered dining area. Service extremely attentive. They were very accommodating to dietary restrictions. This is a gem on top of a wooded hill. Not to be missed!
amazing meal and overall experience. Stunning view of the mountains and river
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are delighted you enjoyed your dining experience. Beverly, Owner
Had an excellent time! Great food and great service!
Perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon - beautiful setting overlooking Point of Rocks Bridge on the Potomac. Really very close to Michelin star service and presentation. Innovative dishes, solid wine list, well trained server (Michael). Locally sourced ingredients done extremely well. Book well ahead of time!
