Had a great meal. Good , ambiance and value was great .portions were huge !
Went for happy hour, drinks were delicious and cheap, our server was delightful however service was slow. It is probably because the pandemic. I recommend it for happy hour!
This is definitely an artisan food experience! I really enjoyed the cornbread, and my friend loved the mocha.
Love this place! I bring guests here every time I have friends come into town :)
The food was great and the service was spot on. Overall and enjoyable experience.
Food was good.
They are very busy.
Lack of attention to detail, several people coming to ask if things are ok, but don’t relate the message to the servers.
Our reservation was for outdoor dining, but the weather had taken a turn for the worst, so we were moved inside. While we waited for our table, at least 10 more people started to cram into the small lobby/waiting area.
Unfortunately, the staff packed everyone inside and the seating was all very close to one another. We had been to several restaurants in the DC area and ALL had seating capacity limitations due to the pandemic and the rising numbers. We were seated and immediately felt uncomfortable with the amount of people and closeness of the tables. We asked our waitress to order to go versus risk staying in an enclosed space with tons of people (despite both my spouse and I being vaccinated).
The good: The food was great and our waitress was very apologetic and kind.
It seems that this restaurant only cared about money instead of their patrons safety.
Overall a positive experience. Staff was respectful and responsive.
Our waitress, Kim was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Very attentive to our needs and had a wonderful temperament! Will go back and want Kim as my waitress!
Amazing experience for brunch! We had the best time and will be back.
Lovely place, I had the fried green tomatoes appetizer and Seafood Louis. Delicious!
Waited 45 minutes for table with reservation. Zero ambiance. Prime rib and ribeye steak were very fatty, not good quality. Very disappointing.
A 20 minute wait even with a reservation, but everything else was great.
Missed out on ambience by sitting outside. Food was amazing but service ruined the experience.
Great food and great service, a must for me every time I am in DC!
Very helpful host as we waited for 20 minutes after our reservation time which was a bit frustrating. Our server made up for our wait by being kind and friendly!
I brought my best friend to Founding Farmer her birthday. We both enjoyed the food and will be bringing our daughters to enjoy brunch with us in the near future.
Great food and service! Definitely a must try!
One of my favorite spots
The food and drinks was excellent! Loved the ambiance. Great place to go while in DC
Hooray!! Thank you, Epixchix for your feedback! We appreciate it!! :) -Amy
Great food. Great staff. Would definitely eat there again
I have eaten here several times. This restaurant rose far above the hardships of the last year and has consistently provided excellent food and service to their Pandemic weary patrons. Truly amazing people work here to provide truly amazing food. It is an automatic stop every time I am in town. Wouldn’t miss an opportunity to eat here.
Service was horrible, food was okay. We would not return.
Thank you, Amna for sharing your feedback with us. I am so sorry to read our service missed the mark this time. I would love the chance to know what took place and kindly ask you to email me: Amy@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review, date dined and what happened with our team's service. -Amy
The breakfast was all delicious and huge portions.
The service was great and the food was outstanding.
Great variety of food and really good service from our waitress. Thank you ma’am!
Georgina was an excellent server. She made sure we got everything we requested
Burger was dry and too much bread. Bread is too thick. Other than that, cornbread is good, Asian wings are pretty good just pricy for the quantity you get.
Pleasant staff that explained the menu in detail. The atmosphere was peaceful. A must revisit!
I made an outdoor lunch reservation for a day when I knew I'd be in DC on my way to see my family, having always wanted to check this place out. It turned out to be pouring rain but they sat us outside in a tent that we ended up having entirely to ourselves, so it was quite romantic. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was lovely.
The appetizer, salmon, catfish, kettle popcorn and fresh blood orange soda were all amazing!
I celebrated my significant other there for his birthday. It was his first time and he enjoyed himself immensely.
Best restaurant in Washington DC 🌟
WOW! We are super flattered to read this and really appreciate you sharing! :) We already look forward to having you back soon, and please call us 202-822-8783 for any reservation help needed.-Amy
My fav place to go in DC for sure! Breakfast to dinner!
As always Founding Farmer’s NEVER disappoints. Will forever be one of my Fav spots to eat for any occasion.
Awww! Thanks CeeBee for your review! We greatly appreciate you sharing this with us and hope to have you back soon. :) -Amy
Friendly staff and good food!
The server had several recommendations from the menu, and I ended up getting the spicy fried chicken sandwich and avocado toast for appetizer. My boyfriend got the chicken and waffles. We loved both dishes and would 10/10 definitely go back again. Bummer that they ended breakfast at 11 am on Monday because I had originally wanted to do brunch. Next time, we'll try to go earlier.
Place got packed by the time we left around noon so make sure to have a reservation!
This was my first visit to Founding Farmers and it was a great experience. The decor was divine and the food was hot and delicious! I will be returning.
The host was lovely, wait staff attentive, food excellent, drinks tasty and arrived in a timely fashion. Definitely recommend!!
Arrived early and was told our table would be ready in a few minutes. 30 minutes later the same table that we saw open when we arrived all the way in the back with barely any room for our dishes was given to us. We were out celebrating my birthday. I was not given even a candle on my boyfriends desert. Food was good and my boyfriend’s carrot cake was good as he loves carrot cakes but not me. I was cold because the heat lamp by us was not on and they couldn’t figure out how to turn it on. I think management needs to pay attention to having their tables cleaned fast and not have people wait especially if you request a table outside and the sun hours are limited. Overall it was ok but nothing was made it especial on my birthday.
Hi Carla: Thank you for your review and I'm super sorry this visit missed the mark- especially with this visit being for your birthday! :( On this note, please know we are no longer offering candles due to Covid. This said, I sincerely apologize there was a wait for your table, the table itself was too small & the heat lamp was not cooperating. I'd love to follow up and make this right! Please email me: Amy@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review + date/location dined. I appreciate it! -Amy
As with all restaurants in the District (for this short period of time) Founding Farmers is realigning with larger seatings and loads. Keep that in mind until restaurants have been open for a while but many of this staff have become acquainted as I have traveled here several times over the past year. Great to see some more buzz and energy in the dining scene. Food never misses the target. Keep it up.
Aways outstanding! Love the fried green tomatoes and crab artichoke dip.
