We have always had great experiences here- it’s our fav restaurant in DC, however this was an exception. We had a reservation for 2:30 in the afternoon. We didn’t receive our appetizer until 3:30 and never received any refills. Our food came out immediately after the app. Service was sub-par.

Made a reservation and checked in promptly. Host was very nice and welcoming. Unfortunately it took 15 mins for our server to come and greet us. Being so that I manage in the food and beverage industry my expectations are high and am quite disappointed at the time I waited before even greeted. Once finally greeted the server was pleasant and food came out delicious and quick . I really enjoy this establishment, However this is the second time I have had this experience. I hope there will be some improvement. Other than that everything was great!

No matter your reservation time, make sure to go inside and tell them you are there. Two walk-in groups were seated in front of us despite the sign says no walk-ins. Still didn’t have a table ready for us at our reservation time since they seated the other two groups. Wife’s order came out wrong once food was ready. Food was good. Server was good. Front of the house help was not

Came for breakfast on my own. The man who welcomed me was so kind and helpful. My reservation was one hour away but as the restaurant was empty enough, they arranged a table for me.

I had founding farmers breakfast. The bacon was really cold and sticky. The grit was also no good at all and scrambled egg was like an omelette rather than scrambled egg. The only good things were the farmers salad (it was really good and avocado was delicious), the ice tea I have ( I cannot remember the name but it was red) and the waiter's behavior.
It was also written in the menu as if you do not have bread you can choose two of sides but when I asked the waiter he told me if I would like to have one more side I need to pay for it even I do not have any bread. I think there must be a problem but it is ok.

I was really excited about visiting Founding Farmers, but it was not very well at all. In this terrible times, a person wants more if she tooks the risks to eat out for any reason.

This was basically the only restaurant open in the vicinity of our hotel on July 4th. They were reservation only because of Covid, so after we walked from our hotel we had to wait an hour after making the reservation on OpenTable while standing at the front door. Service was great. Food was amazing. The manager was very attentive to making sure all guests were comfortable. Overall it was a great lunch and I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice quick sit-down lunch.

Was disappointed because I had heard such great things. The service was poor, the food was okay - certainly not spectacular. My wife ordered a salad had roasted chicken added to it and there were two bones in the chicken. Didn't live up to the hype for the price.

This was our first time back since Covid. I must say that I expected more in terms of preparation.
First, no one asked us any questions in relation to the virus. No one checked our temperature. We only saw 1 sanitizer at the entrance and on the second level there was one and it wasn’t touchless.
Secondly, The utensils were cloth and the silverware were real. The same person who was your waiter/tress was cleaning tables and bringing food.
I feel like there should be a specific person cleaning and not handling food, money, receipt and clearing with no sanitizer in between.
The food was good!!
I enjoy coming to this restaurant, so I hope they’ll improve in protecting merchants during this coworker.
And yes, I know what I’m taking about because I’m a healthcare worker. You don’t have to see to believe, but this virus is real!!

Wonderful outside breakfast! Veronica stopped by to check in, and we felt well taken care of. Staff was courteous, polite, and they had safety precautions in place. It was a nice touch at the end with check presentation, once the server took our card to process payment. They sprayed the card and pen with a hand sanitizer infront of us after asking if it would be okay to do so.
