First day out since COVID. Celebrating birthday
Thank you for your GREAT review! :) -Amy
Great experience. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable.
Good meal. Very interesting menu with unusual dishes, which we like. But also some standards and classics for the less adventurous. It was nice to sit outside and the food was good. The service was also good. Would definitely go back.
Thank you! We appreciate it and hope to have you back soon. :) -Amy
Our reservation was for 1:00pm, they sat us at 1:20pm. For some reason, we had to order the $30 per person brunch (although a “regular” lunch menu was on the table when we sat down). The first few requests were delivered just fine but as the meal progressed the server had to be prompted to clear plates, bring water, etc. We waited 10-15 minutes (looking at dishes that should have been cleared) for the server (Rosario?) to return and take our dessert orders. It never happened. We finally summoned the “manager” and received the order (less than tasty donuts and cheesecake). A total disappointment AND they tacked on an extra four percent for staff who are unable to work due to the COVID shutdowns. I’ll never come back or recommend this place to anyone. The food was pretty uninspiring and the service abysmal.
Farmers & Distillers was pretty good for our brunch. We requested an outdoor table on our reservation but we were seated inside, which we weren't too crazy about but we decided to stay. Most of the food was good, but some things were not as tasty as we had hoped. I recognize, however, that their business operations are slightly different due to COVID-19 and that the taste inconsistencies were unusual (we had all been there before and everything was always really good). Our server was very nice, as was everyone in the building. I will definitely be back and would still recommend this restaurant to a friend.
Our server was excellent! All of the food was good. The cornbread and cinnamon bread were very good. I’m glad we got the mixed basket! I would have been upset had we paid for the Our Bread & Butter option, it doesn’t have the rich flavor of most homemade breads and 1/2 of our boule 1/2 was the same as eating a crouton. The coating on the fried chicken was excellent! The drinks were well poured. We will be back, there are numerous menu items we’re looking forward to trying.
The food is amazing and the waitress was really helpful and polite.
Thank you so much! We appreciate it! -Amy
Meal was great and the service was okay, being not at full capacity. F&D is doing social distancing correctly and it was a nice night to eat outside! Our drinks and meals were delicious.
Only criticism I would have is that for dessert, we wanted donuts and after ten minutes of waiting our waiter made it a point to say he brought out the more expensive donuts in place of the ones we wanted because they were sold out. Rather, he should have told us, and not harped about the new donut price and communicated because the donuts were then wasted.
We were visiting DC from Southern California. Found this place online and decided to try even though there were mixed reviews. Loved the ambiance being outside and the restaurant was very clean. We ordered bread thinking that because we had to pay for it that it would be awesome. It was not awesome. In fact, in was somewhat hard and you had to use force to break it apart. The chicken spring rolls had good flavor. My husband had the chicken fried steak. Very tasteless. Expected the batter to have more flavor and it did not. Our 2 year old loved the donut that came with it. I had the southern chicken salad with beer can chicken. Nothing very special about it and the chicken wasn’t anything fantastic. I expected something a little larger for a salad that was $17.99. Overall, atmosphere great and good for small children. Service was great. Food not so much. I love good food and both my husband and I were not impressed. Even though we had planned to order carrot cake and apple pie for desert, we decided to forgo it as we didn’t want to be disappointed again.
Bummer! I am real sorry, Angie to read of the disappointments with the food ordered during your family's recent visit. :( I'd love the chance to turn around the poor taste you left with, and will send you a personal note with my email address. -Amy
I’ve eaten here countless times but today was different. Our food was cold and bland. I was extremely disappointed.
Oh no! That IS super disappointing, and I am real sorry for the cold & bland food this time. :( I'd love to touch base and turn around the poor taste you left with from your visit. I will send you a personal note with my email address. -Amy
They did an awesome job adapting to covid times. Clean, distanced, and great service!
Great place! Husband took me for my birthday and we had such a great time. Food was excellent and service and exceptional!
Thank you and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! We appreciate it, and hope to have you & your husband back soon. :) -Amy
With COVID-19, F&D was open for Father’s Day where everyone had to eat outside. It was great weather and what my husband requested for dinner.
Food was great and flavorful as always. Our waitress was awesome and quick with service.
Thank you for sharing this with us. :) It is appreciated and we hope to have you & your husband back soon. -Amy
Service was terrible First we waited 15 min before we was even greeted by (kandice) i believe her name was, and the first thing she asked was “who was here first our table or the table beside us” we had to ask other servers for things she never came to refill drinks. We sat without drinks for about 20 minutes and she continued to walk by without the refills we asked for, She acted as if we was bothering her when it came time to actually serve us. She communicated well with all other tables but was very short with us. She didn’t listen to the order given to her which caused us to send the salad back.
I am super sorry to read your feedback from your visit this past weekend. :( I feel badly we dropped the ball with our service this time, and would love the chance to follow up to hopefully turn this around. That said, I will send you a PM with my email address to cont this conversation. -Amy
Great service, good food, the reason I put a 3 for ambience is because our outdoor table was right on top of a sewage vent and so we smelled sewage almost continuously but didn't realize why until we'd been there a while.
Food was blah, slow and not worth the money. Old dishes, stained glasses.
I am very sorry to read this! :( I would love the chance to touch base, and turn around the disappointments with the food, service & dishware from your experience this time. I will send you a PM with my email address to hopefully connect. -Amy
A Very pleasant Father’s Day lunch!
Farmers & Distillers was our first dinner out since quarantine and we had a great time. Quick and excellent service from our server Alexandra and the team. Our chicken dumplings appetizer and my drunken noodles were both delicious! Highly recommend.
Awesome!! Thank you for sharing! -Amy
We ate outside due to social distancing and the accommodations they made were pretty well done. If it wasn’t for two things I would have rated this place 5 stars in all categories, the food was absolutely worth the trip! Despite the menu being quite expansive, the dishes were inspired and brimming with creativity. This place is a true fusion restaurant that expands upon and elevates many well-known dishes to new platitudes. You could dine here several times with each visit being a fresh, new experience. My only hang ups from my visit were that we were seated close to an outdoor trash can, which meant that we had to deal with an unpleasant, lingering odor during our meal, and we were not served water right away, and not even after asking our server to bring us some. Despite the disappointments I would still dine here again because the food was spectacular!
Ok, To start off, The restaurant it self is doing an awesome job with cleaning. As I was seated, I watched as every customer left they would sanitize and sip the tables and chairs very well! Ok, Food was A plus, We tried the Pork and Shrimp dumplings, VERY GOOD! We went at 730pm the sun was low so it wasn’t too hot and we had a slight breeze. I tried the chicken with the doughnut and my date had the Salmon. Both AMAZING! My server was very friendly and attentive. He tried his best to meet all of my needs. The only thing I didn’t like was the drinks. I am a more “sweet” cocktail drinker. The drinks seemed very bitter to me, Bur if that’s the only problem I had, Then that’s NOTHING! All in all I have already told everyone I know to visit and I will definitely be back !
Awww! THANK YOU!! :) We appreciate it and already look forward to having you back again soon. -Amy
outdoor seating due to COVID, so it was nice to be out. Food was meh. Service was good.
Hi Noname: Thank you for sharing this with us, and we are real sorry & bummed the food ordered was only considered "meh" this time. :( We appreciate you letting us know and hope you will give us another try in the future. -Amy
My partner had the steak and loved it. I was in the mood for meatballs, so got the meatballs sandwich. I did not like my meal, but I am picky and the taste wasn’t what I expected. Everything else on the menu was delicious so totally worth going. The server was helpful and followed up on every request.
Nice food at terrace , good service.
One weird thing: The impossible meatloaf is almost the half the regular one. Don’t know why.
The outside seating was wonderful due to the nice weather. My waiter Don has excellent customer service and made sure our table was well served. Our experience yesterday was great
Had brunch with my mom and friend. The waiter had misheard my mom’s order, and the restaurant had unfortunately run out of their delicious-looking French toast. But one of my favorite brunch spots. Hope to get their buffet back soon.
Awesome experience. Thank you!
Thank you for persevering through all of the challenges. We are proud of you!
We ate all three courses and a few cocktails. Everything was absolutely delicious. The customer service was also excellent. Food and drinks came out very quickly. The outdoor seating was perfect. They actually adhere to the 6 feet distancing, haha. Seriously, I will be returning often!
Hooray! Thank you! -Amy
Food was delicious. Everything came out on time and fresh. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much! :) We appreciate it! -Amy
