This is my second time at the restaurant since the pandemic began. I've found the staff to be personable and the food very tasty! The staff is wearing face coverings as were the guests, when not eating. I could see indoors and the patrons were seated far apart. We had a pasta dish and the chicken pot pie as well s the sweet potato dumplings and dessert. Everything was delicious and piping hot!

It was ok... Forced to order brunch buffet ... The food was tasty but not what I came for. The waiters first language wasn't English... so not clear what he was saying most of the time. We survived... Endured!

It was my first time dining at any of the Founding Farmers establishments and I must say I was pleasantly pleased and look forward to experiencing the other locations.

Fantastic experience. Service was GREAT! Willingness to be helpful, great suggestions and menu knowledge from our server, and my FAVORITE THING EVER... what he didn’t know he was willing to inquire about and get back to us! Other food was excellent... the ahi tuna salad was a hit at our table. Truly a great night.

We had a great time and our server checked on us to see if we needed anything even though it was brunch and he didn’t have to bring food to us.

Alexandria was an incredible server and made great recommendations. I had the chicken pot pie which was good. Another of my party had the bolognese which was amazing as was the other diner’s pasta with flank steak! We mistakenly skipped on dessert because the ones we saw at other tables looked incredible! We will go back to try the many other dishes that all sounded and looked delicious!

Our server was so sweet! (Christina? She had red hair and a Midwestern accent I think lol) Anyway, my sister and I were impressed by her service because she was so genuine and made us feel comfortable. There was another guy- didn’t get his name- that offered drink recommendations, helped light our heat lamp, and was nice too! The pastas and drinks Christina recommended were great! Overall, we were happy and will be coming back💁🏾‍♀️

Normally a great experience I guess around closing time no one cares, impossible burger was burnt salad no dressing and the waiter “forgot” to advise the last call for the bar. I’m a frequent visitor to this establishment but after this experience, I will go elsewhere now

My expectations were very high. Naked Jon drink was good. Meatballs were good. Steak frites were VERY underdone and not trimmed well. Cut through a ton of tough pieces. Scallops were good but needed an actual veg.... was all carbs. Homemade ice cream
Was best part of night. I thought this was going to be amazing. It was good.

It was a great brunch experience. Very Clean, with Covid Safety precautions for the buffet. They were very helpful and gracious to make accommodations to change our table to inside seating due to the rain.

We had previously been to Farmers for lunch and it was delicious, so we decided to go back for brunch this past weekend. Unfortunately, we did not have the same experience and will not be going back. The restaurant was only offering a “buffet” for $30/person. In the buffet line, the workers took your plates at each station to serve you an item, and the line for the buffet had us packed in very tightly. Every item I got on the buffet that should have been “hot” was cold—like it had been out for quite some time. As part of the “brunch” dining experience, you can also order endless items or small dishes (like bacon lollies or mini donuts) from their menu. I ordered buttermilk pancakes and maple glazed bacon lollies, in hopes that they’d be warm and better than the low-quality items I had sampled from the buffet. The server came by several times to let us know the kitchen was backed up but our food would be out shortly. After waiting an hour, he came by to confirm that we still hadn’t received the pancakes and bacon—we had not. So he asked “do you still want them?” I confirmed and waited another few minutes. Then, out came two tiny buttermilk pancakes and three bacon lollies which were, again, cold and very tough—like they too had been sitting out for some time. We got our check after that with no apology for the wait or inconvenience, so we paid and left. In DC, we are used to paying higher prices for meals and it’s something we wouldn’t have minded if the food was good...or even warm. But after the cold, unsatisfactory food, poor service, and uncomfortable dining experience, it just felt wrong paying almost $100 for that meal. We will not be returning and hope the dining experience is not the same for other customers.
