We went on an overcast evening hoping to sit outside, but with the slightest chance of rain were told we had to sit indoors. It never rained, and the evening was beautiful :( our servers were very kno... read more »

Patowmack Farm exceeded our expectations. We are already planning our return. I am a vegetarian and my husband eats meat, so we were thrilled to eat at a restaurant that treats both vegetarians and ca... read more »
Lovely experience. Had dinner there last night and it was wonderful. The service was impeccable save one oops - not asking if we wanted coffee before the desserts came out, but his knowledge of the food and attentiveness - appropriate checks, but not hovering! - were perfect. My favorite part besides the amazing food and spectacular view (pastures/river/osprey) was the genuinely delightful owner who at our request spoke of how the restaurant came to be. It was not cheap, but for a special occasion or dining treat - which is an experience and not just a meal - it was worth every penny.
A bit off the beaten path, the food at Patowmack Farm is hands down some of the best we have ever had. My girlfriend and I went, rather used to the prices and styles of food closer to DC and were incredibly impressed with their ability to create amazing flavours out of local and foraged ingredients. The prices are not low, but for what they have to offer they are not unsightly either, especially while sitting on a hillside that could be a painting of serenity and calm. Every course was prepared perfectly, tiny details like salt and plate temperature were taken into account, with cold plates for snails and warmed for beef ribs. The timing was excellent (we never felt like we were 'waiting too long') and the service was some of (if not the) best and most personable service you can ask for. Overall an excellent experience from start to finish.
I took my parents here for Mother's Day, and it was a raving success. We arrived about 15 minutes before our reservation, but they were able to seat us whenever we were ready. There was an all-glass conservatory dining space with partially open doors and an open-air tent. I asked to be seated inside the greenhouse since it was pretty windy. Our table had a wonderful view of the gazebo, the rolling green hills, and the Point of Rocks Bridge and Potomac River in the background. Very picturesque! Each table had a small vase of carnations and tulips for Mother's Day. We ordered some lemonade to start, while perusing the Mother's Day prix fixe menu ($79 per person). Each of our menus had "Welcome the Wang Party" typed in beneath the restaurant name and the occasion. At the end of our meal, they rolled our menus and affixed a ribbon to each. A nice personal touch. All the items on the menu came out during our meal. The portions aren't too big, but it was enough for our family of three. We each received a bowl of the soup. The entrees and desserts are all family style, brought out at once. Our server (who was super polite and friendly) would list the dishes after everything was placed in front of us, particularly noting foods that came from their farm or the surrounding area. Firsts +Stinging nettle soup with yolk ham, charred onion, and pine nuts +Buffalo wing cracker Entrées +Buttermilk fried chicken +Grilled wahoo with wild ramps ravigote +White hammon sweet potato with gastrique and marshmallows +Pork loin with mushrooms and sorrel juice +Spoonbread with preserved tomato stew and ricotta +Salad of this mornings greens with pickle juice dressing +Buttermilk biscuits with rosemary and garlic jelly and butter Desserts +Chocolate mint pie with honey cream +Elderflower crème brûlée +Fallen ice cream cone with rhubarb meringue ice cream I really did enjoy every dish. My favorites were the white hammon sweet potato, the pork loin, buttermilk biscuits with rosemary and garlic jelly, and elderflower crème brûlée. I love how they incorporate food from their farm, such as the egg from the soup, the greens from the salad, and the mushrooms in the pork loin dish. Flavors were wonderful and progressive. This is truly an experience. If you're into farm-to-table, this is the place for you. Fresh and seasonal ingredients, sustainable practices, organic and progressive cuisine, and spectacular views. It's no wonder why the Restaurant at Patowmack Farm has consistently been on Washingtonian's 100 Very Best Restaurants list for the last 3 years and her chef, Tarver King, was a semifinalist for the James Beard Award for Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic. They take the time to really focus on the relationship between food grown on the farm and what the locality offers. All in all, we had a fantastic meal celebrating my beautiful and hardworking mom. She and my dad were both very satisfied with the meal, and we all had a great time. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking an unforgettable experience with truly local and sustainable food.
I give it a star because the service and view were wonderful. The food served was Vietnamese. I cannot make one positive comment. In fact, I thought it was a joke on the "foodies" ...albeit an very expensive one. So disappointed.
It was our second visit after experiencing some unique foods unusually served the first time, when we did have some (very limited) choices of menu items. This time, there were no choices, the food was gimmicky, cute, "precious", or over the top in an effort for unique presentation. And not very tasty. The price was ridiculously high. Some items were grossly over salted and a simple thing like semolina bread was under cooked and gummy inside. We could not recommend this place to anyone - I would have been embarrassed to have brought guests with us. The only redeeming feature was the very efficient and courteous service.
