Chilly day for outdoor seating but best option during COVID-19. Restaurant would do well to invest in area-heaters for outdoor diners' comfort.
Enjoyed outdoor dining with great social distancing. Didn’t feel rushed as my husband and I caught up with friends we had not seen in months. It was their first time at FF and they enjoyed their meals. My husband and I as well. We were hoping to sit in Andre’s section as he provided outstanding service last time we were there but he wasn’t there when we arrived for our 2pm reservation. We didn’t leave until after 5:30! And we weren’t given any side eyes for taking up the table for all that time. It was a delightful experience. I’m looking forward to the next time...which is scheduled for this coming weekend for breakfast with my girlfriends. Their first experience too. I’m sure it will be a blast.
We shared the brisket hash and Bourbon French Toast...thoroughly enjoyed it!
Food was delicious...it was like eating Sunday Dinner on a Saturday night 😋
Our food and our server was excellent . All of our server’s recommendations were spot on . We loved everything but especially the pimento cheese and chips and the beignets and ice cream .
The food was plentiful but average. We sat outside. The weather invites heat lamps, but they were not being used.
The food was ok. The deviled eggs had a lot of onions on it, the Mac & cheese was bland but the ribs, chicken and green beans were delicious.
Andre our server was amazing! First time dining there and he made sure we enjoyed ourselves, the drinks and of course the food! We will be back!
We had an amazing time! We were a big party and while still following CDC guidelines they accommodated us together, at two tables outside. The food was PERFECT and our server Jose was great too
We made a reservation online and were pleased with how easy it was. When we arrived we were seated right away. They were very nice from beginning to end. One of the host was especially sweet to my 1 year old and made it a point to make her smile and we loved that. I wish I would have caught his name. Overall a great experience we will definitely be going back with my family.
Lovely spot for breakfast. The cornpie is amazing!!! Will definitely be back!
Hooray! Thank you so much and we hope to have you back for another great meal soon. :) -Amy
Everything was delicious and with the reservations, I was able to be seated right away. My guests and I had a wonderful time.
I went to Founding Farmers with my friend for happy hour, and it was AMAZING! After a long day of work, it was the perfect way to wind down with a great outdoor setting and good service. We paid an excellent price for high quality food and drinks. 10/10 recommend.
The food was mediocre. I was not impressed by the Steak Frites. However, the service was fantastic! The drinks were tasty as well.
THE BEST eggs benedict I’ve had hands down. Everything on the menu that we ordered there was so good. We are outside in the morning so it was not very busy but the staff was very warm and helpful. I would definitely come back and recommend!
Went for breakfast. Mediocre food with good service. Probably better choices around. Last time I went for dinner, food seemed better but service was terrible. Probably won’t go back.
Thank you, DTCutch for your review and I am so sorry your visits have been a let down in one way or another. :( I would love the chance to follow up about your feedback, and hopefully sway the outcome of your choice to not join us again- I will send you a DM with my email address. Thank you and I look forward to being in touch. -Amy
Good food, nice choices on Happy Hour, server was very kind!
Great restaurant, awesome service and a wide variety of food.
Thanks Ellis! We are super thrilled you enjoyed your visit, and really appreciate the 5/5 rating. :) -Amy
Great atmosphere and the service was great.
Went for a brunch, selections were good, coffee was great, service was awesome
Our outside seating was nice. Waitress was very accommodating. Food and drink very good . Fun night
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
I love the total experience of dining at this restaurant. This time I ordered the Shrimp & Grits, with Andouille sausage and it did not disappoint! The grits were creamy, the Andouille spicy and the shrimp were large!!!! I made sure to save room for dessert - apple pie with ice cream. The ice cream tasted like it was freshly churned. I wonder if they have their own dairy?
Service took too long. Waiter was not attentive. Had to ask for simple things such as silverware and clean cups.
I travel with a picky bunch. They felt their eggs were a bit underdone. I think after hearing all the hype, we were all expecting a more expansive menu.
Service was ok. I had the French toast. I loved the presentation but I wanted more depth of flavor.
Many thanks, Olivia for taking the time to share your feedback with us. I am sorry your brunch visit was somewhat passable with under-cooked eggs, "ok" service and flavorless french toast. :/ We appreciate you letting us know these details and hope to have you & your guests back for another try soon! Please call us: 202-822-8783 for any reservation help needed. -Amy
I’ve never had such amazing service from a server like Alex as my boyfriend and I experienced at the DC location! It was our first time at FF, and everything was literally so perfect! The atmosphere was so calm
Waiting time was about 25 minutes even after we had reservation and we came perfectly on time. Otherwise everything was good.
Food was awesome
Dim lighting outside. Very slow service. Good food though.
Everything we had was great. From the artichoke crab dip to the pizza to the seafood. We enjoyed it all. The service was bar none awesome. Everyone greeted us is pleasant and accommodating.
Hooray!! Thank you for sharing this with us. :) We appreciate it and hope to have you & your dining companion(s) back for another great meal soon! -Amy
Our party so appreciated adherence to covid precautions and enjoyed a delicious meal on a lovely late summer evening outside. What a treat!
It was absolutely delicious. My first time coming for breakfast and won’t be my last!
Our waiter wasn’t friendly. He was quiet and seemed like we were a bother to come eat. The restaurant has a 4% surcharge on the bill for COVID-19 expenses. Due to their surcharge, we did not tip our normal minimum of 20%, instead we tipped 16%. If the expenses of COVID-19 are so great, maybe adjust your prices as needed but a surcharge that everyone faces, PPEs and cleaning supplies, is something all restaurants face and this is the only location I found that adds 4% to the total.
Always enjoy the fresh food, ambience and service. It is a must every time we come to DC.
It’s one of the best breakfasts I have ever had! Recommend reserving a table before coming, the wait can be long
The staff is so hard working and the food is amazing! The manager was incredibly dedicated and generously offered to pay for our drinks because they took a little extra time to make them. So kind!! Every meal I’ve ever had here was delicious. One of the best restaurants in DC!!
My only complaint was that there were a lot of tiny flies and gnats during our visit. Otherwise, our visit was phenomenal. Our server/waiter, Jose was AMAZING!
Great everything! Definitely would come back for more.
Awww! Thank you for your GREAT review! :) We appreciate it and hope to have you back again soon. -Amy
FF is one of my fav DC spots because of the healthy food items and good service. The pancakes are always a hit for me and I like the homemade drinks
