I can not rave enough about Farmicia. Their dinner is delicious with organic meats and vegan options as well. Everything just seems fresh and light. You can bring your own wine although they have a full bar as well.

Brunch is amazing as well with 50% beverages (mimosas and bloody marys!). We keep saying we need to try other places but always end up here since it's so delicious. Nice farm table atmosphere inside too with great servers.

Reviewed December 19, 2012

This place has the worst food EVER and they really should not be serving food... I was here with a group of friends, we all disliked our dishes and were very disappointed, actually left the restaurant and bought pizza since we were still hungry and nobody could finish their meal... they should have ok brunches but don't bet on this place for dinner or you'll go home disappointed, hungry and broke..

Farmacia has great food and excellent service in a very nice setting. The menu offers a wide variety of entrees that are very unique and flavorful. We went for a late lunch and they were still serving breakfast items as well as a variety of appetizers and sandwiches. Excellent coffee as well. I will definitely be back!

Very comfortable and well decorated space. Tables weren't too close and we were allowed to linger on a Friday night. We are vegan so I didn't study the menu. We relied on our server and ordered a vegan version of the tamales, which were a little spicy, but stopped short of being too hot.
