The restaurant sits high on a bluff at the edge of Patowmack Farm and overlooks the Potomac River. On one perfect June day for lunch, a dozen tables were nicely spaced under a huge white canopy affording everyone a view of the countryside. The artistry, originality, innovation, and ingenuity that typify this extraordinary restaurant become irresistibly apparent. The cocktails were... More

My husband and I visited in 2010 when there was a different chef and probably not the best time of year for seasonal fare. It was not great. However, we returned last September for my birthday celebration and were impressed with the improved service, cuisine, and overall experience. We plan on returning next month for my special birthday dinner once... More

It's hard to know where to start: the quality of the ingredients; the creativity of the dishes; the service; the views, everything was excellent. The dinner was truly one of the most memorable that we have had in years. Head and shoulders above anything in the DC area. Some highly rated places seem formulaic. Not this place. You truly felt...

We've been to Patowmack several times in the past few years, most recently for my parents' 50th anniversary dinner. Chef Tarver had three menu options, and wine pairings to match. The food was amazing, and presented so beautifully! The servers were the best! We left ourselves to their gracious hospitality while overlooking the beautiful Potomac valley and Points of Rock...

I have never been to a restaurant like this one. You eat in a beautiful green house that overlooks the Potomac River and all of the food is either grown on the farm (including the meat) or from a local farmer/fisher. I went as a dinner party with my friends and I felt like we were treated like Kings! After... More

Our dinner experience was absolutely phenomenal! Owner Beverly and Chef Tarver, as well as the wonderful serving staff, made our time there that much more special. The view of the Potomac was amazing! Then, there is the food...oh the food! It would be a horrible disservice to describe it has delicious. Each dish that arrived at our table was breathtakingly...

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 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
