Wonderful meal for breakfast with a friend! Great service and sat outside in beautiful weather!
I never write reviews, but this experience warranted one and hopefully the restaurant can figure out a way to remedy what seem to be major problems. I used to consider this to be one of the better restaurants in DC as far as food/ambiance goes so it was very disappointing to see the state it was in when I attempted to dine there. All of the unoccupied tables outside hadn’t been cleared/cleaned, the flower pots contained dead flowers or just dirt. Based on what was visible to customers, I can only presume to guess what the kitchen looked like. Once we were finally brought to our table we waited for 15 mins before deciding to leave. Nobody even acknowledged us; there were a total of 7 occupied tables so it wasn’t due to them being busy. We walked next door to Guapo’s and had great service/food so they will be getting my business from now on until Farmers can figure out what they’re doing!
It was good service was a bit confusing but good overall
Amazing as always from the food to the service to the ease of reservations! The food is delicious, has many options, and never disappoints!
Lovely outdoor seating area. It was a bit sunny and there was limited shade. Food was good, but you’re stuck with whatever options are being served for brunch only. French toast was amazing! Brunch drinks were mediocre.
Their brunch menu is now a buffet only. I wasn’t very impressed by this as my eggs were cold, I had limited options that I could eat, and would have preferred they stuck to the old way of doing brunch. I know COVID has made everyone revamp things, but I feel a buffet is counter intuitive to reducing the spread and adhering to the CDC guidelines.
We did the plated buffet. Most of my hot food items were room temperature. We sat outside and the ambience was not appealing at all. The chairs are old and dirty looking, the flower beds that hung behind us were mainly just dirt. The line was terribly long. And the first batch of cinnamon rolls, that were just left on the table with none of us around, were burnt and cold. The servers were great though! I normally go to the Tyson’s location and have never had an issue. This was my birthday brunch and I must say I was disappointed.
Bummer!! I am super sorry, CWill to read of the disappointments encountered during what should've been a wonderful, Birthday celebration. :( I am really so sad this visit was not at all up to par, and would love to connect with you about your feedback & hopefully turn this around. That said, I will send you a DM with my email address to touch base. -Amy
Delicious food and great service in a beautiful and lively location. Major plus for having outdoor seating.
The food at Farmers Fishers Bakers is fantastic. I have been 3-4 times now and I have never left disappointed in the food. All apps are great, specifically the mussels (we got the ones with sausage) and the crab I think they were just pretty packed, so things were taking a little longer than normal. But overall, this place is great, and I definitely recommend it.
Cioppino was excellent! Can be noisy sitting outside with all the boats partying on the river.
I want to thank the Manager (Edward) I believe was his name. He deserves 10 stars for accommodating our birthday party. I truly appreciate his efforts and his kindness. He went above and beyond to accommodate our request for two tables for our party. Thanks to him. 👏👏👏
Beautiful lovely amazing
Great food and service.
Thank you! We appreciate it and hope to have you back again soon. :) -Amy
I would go back for the steak and frites and my boyfriend’s ribeye along with the nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon I had with my dinner. Other than that I feel let down on the sushi and the mussel part. The sushi turned into a mush, every spicy tune roll fell apart and consisted of mostly cucumber. Also, it was quite spicy to a point that it overshadowed any other flavor that may have been present. The white wine and garlic mussels were very small and didn’t seem worth the price. However, the broth was tasty. The service was rather slow and inattentive. I hope to have a better experience next time.
I went for a quality date night and the ambience of the deck was great. Service was good and drinks were fine however the food was horribleI. We Tried 3 different things and not one item impressed us and the pizza was so bad I couldn’t finish my slice. $100 later I left in disappointment as I wondered how to try and recover from such an awful experience.
Hi Ltman: Thank you for sharing this with us, and I am so so sorry the food served was not at all enjoyed! :( I also feel badly that we failed to make sure everything was to your liking, and would've definitely corrected these meals for you. That said, I want to amend our mistakes and will send you a DM with my email address to continue this conversation. -Amy
The restaurant, food and location are nice, but the service was awful. Like really awful. We received a lukewarm greeting at best. We were not approached at our table for about 10-15 minutes, he put a bottle of water on the table, but no glasses. We ordered coffee with our meal but received it without milk or sugar. We asked twice for the glasses and milk and sugar, yet never received them. We also ordered a glass of OJ that never on the bill but not the table. This was seriously the WORST service I’ve ever experienced.
Unfortunately we were not able to sit outside as it was raining cats and dogs that day. We were seated at a round table that fit the 5 of us comfortably and still allowed us to social distance from each other. I had the avocado poblano cheeseburger which was quite good. I would definitely come again to eat at Farmers Fishers Bakers, hopefully to be seated at an outside table next time.
Great location, interesting menu, good quality, service friendly and accomodating.
I have eaten here before and have had good experiences. However this time drink orders were incorrect. Then, food orders were taken incorrectly and I got the wrong dish, with the steak I ordered not cooked to how it was ordered. Lastly, we were eating outside and it started to rain. The restaurant staff made no attempts to move us inside (there were plenty of tables socially distanced) or offer dryer seating. I was disappointed with my overall experience, and though I tipped well and didn't complain at the restaurant to show support during these times, I am not sure I'll be coming back.
Oh gosh!! This experience surely was not one for the books, and I am SO SO sorry we dropped the ball with basically everything possible. :( That said, I would love to follow up with you and do what I can to turn this around- I will send you a personal note with my email address to hopefully continue this conversation. -Amy
I loved the fried brussel sprout salad and shrimp scampi with gnocchi. The waitress was very friendly and the food was outstanding. My boyfriend and I would go back again!
Hooray! Thank you so much, and we already look forward to welcoming you & your boyfriend back sometime soon. :) -Amy
Fantastic service, especially given COVID!
Awesome! Thank you so much for sharing this with us, and we appreciate it! :) -Amy
We had a reservation & we still had to wait 20 minutes before we were seated. And then we were seated at a table that was in the direct sunlight when there appeared to be other tables available with umbrellas that provided shade. As a result I was unable to relax & he comfortable while we ate. Both the water & the drink that I ordered became very warm in a short period of time.
I am really so sorry to read the table we sat you at was not ideal in the sense that there was little to no shade while you ate. :( This is an understandable let down, and I would love the chance to follow up with you about your feedback. That said, I will send you a personal msg with my email address. -Amy
Waited 35 min past my reservation to be seated. Would have been longer if we didn’t go in and ask to sit inside instead of outside. The hostess claimed that a party had paid but was still sitting at the table/ as a hostess at a fine dining restaurant I know that after 20 min she should have gone over and asked them to leave. The restaurant was packed. Also when we asked to sit inside they agreed quickly which should have happened first. We went in 3 times to ask about our table.
when we were sat we waited 15 min to see our server. Felt neglected the whole night. On my birthday too
I am super sorry we left you "high & dry" this time, and feel awful that our team left you feeling neglected on your special day! :( This is such an understandable disappointment, and I would love the chance to touch base and turn around the poor impression we left you with. I will send you a follow up message with my email address. -Amy
Diego our server was amazing!! Food was delicious 😋
Always perfect for a date night! Food excellent as usual. LOVED the fried chicken and donut even better than my favorite chicken and waffles from the Midwest. Crispy, moist chicken with just right amount of spice and freshly baked donut, paired with refreshing slaw and elote corn. Hubby had shrimp and gnocchi and loved it! Cucumber Delight with cantaloupe melon cocktail super refreshing and The Painkiller is like beach vacation in a glass. Farmers Fishers and Bakers is a new favorite of this group.
The food was so good! I would definitely go back👍🏻🙂 best sushi I’ve had in a while.
It was my partners birthday and his family visiting from Boston. The food was absolutely spectacular. Top notch. Most likely one of our favorite places thus far since we moved to DC and it wasn’t as expensive as other places for a party of 4. Being right near the waterfront was also amazing. Very kind staff. You pay for quality and we definitely received it.
It was a beautiful evening on the waterfront. The service as great, as hard as is during the pandemic, they were able to make us feel like we were semi normal. The quality of food is always good at these restaurants, they never disappoint.
Our server was terrible. If it weren’t for the other servers who would see my wife and I sitting for long periods of time, we would have left. She only had one section, the tables along the front glass window, and she would either walk by and not acknowledge us or we wouldn’t see her at all.
The hostess and 2 other servers, without being asked, came to help because they saw us sitting there.
We were disappointed because we have been to this location several times, Tyson’s corner once, north Potomac many times and Pennsylvania Ave 3 times.
Had lunch! The food was good!
I ordered ahi tuna. It was cooked all the way and flat.
I complained and they replaced but by the time it came I was almost finish with my veggies and wine.
Too bad, lovely location and the waiter was excellent and apologetic.
Thank you, Vi50 for sharing this with us. I am so sorry the Ahi Tuna was not properly prepared, and we missed the chance to give you a full & enjoyable experience this time. :( This said, I would love to hopefully have the opportunity to make this up to you and will send you a personal note with my email address to connect further. -Amy
Able to sit outside (unlike last reservation). Service was pretty slow considering restaurant nearly empty. Food was generally good. Pancakes were delish. Avocado was definitely past its prime but waiter didn’t charge us extra for it. Coffee was really good.
