This restaurant was amazing. It was so good I wish I could get a discount to eat here again because I invited my whole family. We made a reservation for August because it was so good. Local food, local distillery, amazing taste of food are all pluses.

Reputation is well deserved. Outstanding service and good food. We enjoyed Fried Green Tomatoes + Ribeye + Chicken salad + veggies = delicious dinner.
Definitely recommend: both indoor and outdoor.

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.

Hannah, I am very sorry to read this! I cannot believe it took an hour to receive your appetizer and refills were never offered. :( This is truly unacceptable, and I would love the chance to turn this around. I will send you a PM with my email address to hopefully cont this conversation. -Amy

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.

With the pandemic going on, the service was impeccable. The team was aware and mindful of the patrons. The food is always good and it was no different this time around. Thanks for hanging in during these very difficult times.

I’ve been here a few times and I’ll never understand the draw. Everything I’ve had is bland and insanely overpriced. Such a disappointing restaurant.

Wonderful experience even during COVID-19. Service was amazing and food was great. My only down side was fighting the fruit flies during indoor dining. Overall great time. See you soon!

During the COVID interruption this restaurant went out of their way to make me feel at home. I was in DC for 16 days and likely ate here 13 of those days. GREAT JOB to servers and managers.
