Lovely on a cold night

Cozy environment, nice servers, interesting menu. Cauliflower-potato-pork belly mash was amazing! All wines the same price, very nice idea.

We chose to try the restaurant because of local freshness and BYOB (full bar too) . Atmosphere most inviting, quirky, some may call it but we found it a wonderful place to linger over a business/friends meeting. Shrimp appy-fabulous! Go before they change the menu. My Tuna was to be rare and most of it was but was not cooked... More

Traveling with a vegan and a farm raised meat eater is a challenge, but Farmicia was a great choice! Yummy drink selection, amazing apps, and a wonderful dinner. Atmosphere was friendly and staff was good.

Service was great. Ambiance was nice. Not too loud. Food was very fresh and tastefully prepared. Prices were very reasonable for a downtown restaurant. I would definitely return.

Went with a friend for lunch. Drinks were good. My chicken sandwich was just ok. Hummus appetizer was good. Service was good. I've been here before and would go back. Sitting in the window is nice and finding street parking is easy.

I was up for the weekend and stayed in a nearby hotel when I walked past this restaurant. What attracted my eye was the name which I really thought was "farmacia" = pharmacy in Spanish because I was looking for one. Once I got closer, I realized that it was actually a restaurant. The décor was interesting along with the... More

We drove up to Philly for the day, and happened upon this resturant. We stopped in for lunch. I noticed on the menu a quesadilla with eggs and potatoes?....had to give it a try. It was very good! Totally, changed my idea of how to make a quesadilla. My wife's fruit bowl was surprisingly fresh and flavorful. Very enjoyable meal,... More

I had a fantastic Brunch Experience at Farmicia! The food was delicious and the service was fast. I would also recommend the mimosas.... they were fantastic. We look forward to coming back on our next visit! I would recommend reservations, as it can get crowded, especially on weekends!

Our dinner at Farmica was one was one of my more enjoyable meals of the year. We started off at the bar and enjoyed very well prepared cocktails. When we sat down the Metropolitan Bakery bread was great. From there our appetizers and entrees were very good. The selections cover all bases from vegetarian to carnivore. It seemed everyone at...
