Food isn't bad. A bit pretentious and way too expensive for what it is. Service disorganized and somewhat haphazard. Our server was downright rude. Will not venture out to the middle of nowhere for indifferent food and horrible service.

I sincerely apologize for your experience at my restaurant. I was quite disappointed with regards to your server. I would appreciate it if you would contact me directly so that I can address this personally with my staff. This is totally unacceptable. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations. It is my goal to create a lasting... More

I remember when this restaurant first opened and I thought, wow, that sounds like a really cool concept - a restaurant actually growing its own food. But it's taken me this long to visit and the wait was worth it. I don't consider myself a foodie and I'm actually pretty picky about my food so I was a little worried... More

What a delightful evening! This was the first time for any of us to visit the Restaurant but I doubt it will be the last. First, there was a beautiful drive out Hwy. 15 to a gravel road. After a short haul up the incline, you see the outdoor canopies, gazebo and "greenhouse" dining building. From any of those sites... More

My wife and I ate here recently on a Thursday evening. We probably would not have even known about this place except for it’s appearance in the top 10 on the Washingtonian Magazine Top 100 restaurant list for 2015 (came in at number 9). It is up close to the Potomac River, and, in fact, has a great view of... More

My husband and I had brunch to celebrate the end of another school semester for me and we will definitely be returning. The server was extremely personable, the food was all so unique and delicious, and the view was breathtaking. We cannot wait to return for dinner to experience another picturesque view while dining on another delectable meal!

Patowmack Farm, as other reviewers have noted, is a mixed bag. The brilliance of the cuisine is offset to some degree by unsophisticated service and a setting that has both strengths and weaknesses. But in spite of its shortcomings it's possible to have a five star experience overall by adjusting your expectations. If your idea of five star dining is... More

It has been a number of years since I have been to this restaurant nestled in the mountains of Virginia. Even though it is out of the way and up a steep incline, it is worth the drive. The food is outstanding. We went here for brunch on Sunday at about noon and could not have been more pleased. The... More

We dined in January on a whim. Those travelling from DC proper should keep in mind it is about an 1.5 hour drive without traffic. Those in the suburbs of Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland will have a shorter trip. Regardless of your origin, this restaurant is worth your time. Winning highlights: The warm, genuine greeting and personalized menus truly... More
