I had not visited this restaurant in some time and was counting on the strength of my memory of previous meals. This was my 1st visit for a Sunday brunch/lunch. The food was superior and the service exceptional. Wonderful time!

My friends and I love dining. We really don't discriminate. We can go for a Chik-Fi-La sandwhich to a high end meal. But, when it comes to fine dinning, we definitely have our standards. We are always looking for the "best" restaurant. A few of us have been to the Inn at Little Washington. If you have been there, you know how darn pricey that is! I was disappointed, because we only liked a few dishes. Yes, the atmosphere is nice and service was good. BUT, Patowmack, blows it out of the water. Every dish was creative, an explosion of flavors for every bite. Yes, this is expensive too, but no where near what the Inn charges. I took my hubby here for his birthday. We both would rather die than eat oysters, mushrooms, and liver. However, wouldn't you know it, that is what was on the pre-fixed menu at Patowmack that night. Well, knowing how much we were paying, we ate it. I am not exaggerating, it was sooooo good, the best I have had. If it could turn two haters into lovers, that is saying something. My hubby is not a "foodie" like myself. But, he loved it. It was the best dining experience. We sat outside and got to enjoy the view. The staff explained every dish in detail, not like the Inn. The owner even checked on us a few times, not like the Inn. Granted, the Inn is more hoity toity, very nice place. The Patowmack is more a farm, more rustic. I myself love that because I feel more comfortable. One of my friends continues to dine there as much as she can. I really truly believe that this is the best restaurant in VA/DC because of the creativity that is entailed, the presentation, the taste, and the consistency. Thank you Patowmack for a great dining experience!!! Well worth the price.

I’m not sure how I missed it but this is a set menu, absolutely no choices, and $110 a person. If you are fine with that then go! Beautifully creative menu and presentation of each course was amazing. Outstanding quality is represented in every ingredient. The wine pairing was quite nice but the pores were more of a tasting per course, not the half glass that was described.

A cozy, personalized dining experience. Staff made you feel welcome and appreciated. Service was timely and every details looked upon. Manager was warm and not overbearing. Setting and the view of the Potomac were outstanding. Clientele was in our league and seems to enjoy. It was a spot worth the one and a half hour drive from Silver Spring, MD.

The decision to eat outside, under a tent, on a 85 degree day sadly diminished the quality of otherwise exceptionally prepared food. I can only hope this decision was due to a malfunctioning AC in enclosed dining area. The constant swatting of gnats and flies over the $85 per head food ruined the experience that this restaurant is known for delivering. While Mother Nature is Mother Nature and not everyone is high maintenance eating outside, the lack of attention to detail on water refill and specialty cocktails only compounded the poor decision to dine al fresco. If outside eating was the plan, please promote in advance so customers can prepare accordingly or look elsewhere. Thank you.

Price alone =!Special occasion more than everyday dining, but this is a very special restaurant. The food is inventive and delicious. The cocktails are interesting as is the wine list
Service is surprisingly good for the remote location. This is a destination meal and you won’t leave disappointed.

The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm has long been considered one of the best dining locations in Northern Virginia and the entire DMV area. Even though I have been aware of this fact for several years, I had not been to the there yet, even though it was only about 10 miles away from home. As of this past Saturday, this streak ended. My wife and I went for lunch/brunch. Because the weather was perfect, all of the seating was outside on the tent covered patio. The view is incredible, with the Patomac River and the bridge connecting VA to MD in the not so far distance. The server was so pleasant; friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable. Though we did not get a chance to enjoy the full tasting menu, we did have a fantastic 3 course lunch, along with bread service. The bread was fresh, hot, house-made English muffins, which were perfect. Served with homemade butter, fresh honey, and coarse salt. For the dishes, I will not go into all details, but my wife and purposely ordered different dishes for each course, as we often do, to by able to try a wider variety of the chefs creations. The stand out dish of what we sampled was the Chicken Liver Parfait, which was amazingly good. Also great, was the Berry Tart. I should note that all of the dishes were very good. In summary, everything was amazing, and we will definitely be back to the Restaurant at Patowmac Farm. Hopefully next time to experience the full tasting menu during dinner service.

the ambiance was lovely both inside and out, with a lovely view. We felt that the small bites were too small; we really liked a couple of them, but wanted more of those; others were less interesting. We also felt that the presentation was a bit too precious. The servers were attentive and helpful, but somewhat too involved in detailed presentation. We had a question about the wine and the server went to ask the sommelier rather than asking him/her to come to the table to discuss with us directly.

We did have a very nice evening, not rushed and found much to talk about concerning the dinner, but would not come again.

We celebrated our 29th Anniversary here. It is definitely pricey but the food and presentation were unique and tasted excellent. All of the staff were very friendly and took the time to explain each dish when it came out to the table. The servings could have been a bit larger. For example, the lamb (main meal this night) came with 2 small potatoes only. So, I had one and my husband had one. That was not enough. Of all the meals that was unfortunately our least favorite since the lamb was tough and only came with 2 potatoes. The rest of the meal was wonderful. Each tasting was full of flavor and just a culinary experience with all the textures and color. Really quite good which is why I wished the servings were slightly larger. Other reviews commented about the drinks. Drinks were very good and if you want an excellent presentation- order the Old Fashioned. We stayed in the indoor section with the fans. The view is very beautiful and if you get there before the sun sets so you can take advantage of seeing the river before and after sunset. In the evening the area was covered in fireflies and it was so beautiful to see nature’s light show. I recommend this place if you want a very unique experience. Only draw back is that it is pricey, otherwise I would visit more often since the menu changes with the season.

This place is truly exceptional! From the hostess, the waiters, the bar staff and the amazing cook, I can't say enough. We discovered The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm a few years ago and fell in love with the location, the owner, and the amazing food and service! You never know what will be on the menu but I can say I have tried everything that has been put in front of me and can not think of anything that I wasn't amazed at how good it was! Chef Tarver, must sit up nights thinking of how to mix ingredients and tastes to blow your mind! We loved it so much we were married there in the gazebo overlooking the Potomac River four years ago. It was then that Beverly (the owner) became part of our family too!

If you want an exceptional meal, amazing view and superb service - Join Beverly, Tarver and the staff at Patowmack Farm!

We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and this was our first time here; so glad we chose it. The many food courses served on the fixed price menu were delicious, imaginative, and beautifully plated. The serving staff was friendly, but professional. The owner was also on hand to greet us as well as chat for a moment. The location, view, and ambiance can't be beat. For sure it is not an inexpensive evening, but the quality of the food and experience was in line with the cost.

It was an overcast rainy day which was perfect in the glass dining room. The service was on point and the food came at a great pace. The way the food is presented and served is not ground breaking for a tasting menu but it’s still thoughtful and beautiful. The food was all delicious and so much of it had so much depth. Delicious.
