Wonderful food and great staff!
The food was not nearly as good as previous visits. The hamburger was dry and not well prepared. I was very disappointed. My friend ordered the chili burger and there was no chili. They brought a bowl after pointing that out but it was midway into the meal. The waiter was very nice and helpful but very green. May be my last visit to this restaurant.
I have been wanting to go to this place for years, but for some reason didn't get a chance to until this past weekend. Overall, for how much I paid, I was disappointed.
Highly recommend the Beignets! Whatever you do, order this!! They are crunchy on the outside and soft & chewy on the inside. Taste is delicious! They also come with 3 dipping sauces. We also ordered the bacon lollipops and they were fine, almost too sweety. We also ordered a Bloody Mary and Peach Bellini, but they were fine nothing spectacular.
For our meals, my wife had the crab cake eggs Benedict and I had the chicken & waffles with eggs & sausage gravy. Waffles were also delicious and crunchy. I loved the syrup because it had a hint of cinnamon. The chicken tenders were slightly spicy and was a great combo with the sweet waffles and syrup. Chef's kiss!
I also loved that they had outdoor seating! They have a whole set-up for outdoors with little booths, and that was super cute.
My biggest complaint is the service...was not great at all. We had a server named Kevin and maybe he was having a tough day. For the amount we're spending, I was expecting more friendly and attentive service. Could be that our waiter had an off day.
We had great service for a party of 7. We were seated within 10 minutes of arriving with a reservation. The food was excellent and prices were reasonable. We’d definitely come back to celebrate another occasion with a large group.
Unfortunately after several meals at FF, dinner last night was very disappointing. Jason, our server was a nice guy and very pleasant. Outside seating was also a nice option.
Mushroom sausage gnocchi was not good. There was so much pepper in the dish that it made my throat burn and the sausage had little flavor. My wife’s ahi tuna bowl also missed the mark— way too much dressing and the tuna wasn’t very fresh.
Chicken pot pie was enjoyed while the prosciutto balsamic bread appetizer was just ok.
I understand the DC cost to eat out and am willing to pay for high quality—we were very disappointed with the meal which was also fairly pricey
First time in the DC location. We normally frequent the King of Prussia locale. Food was delicious.
This was our first visit to Founding Farmers DC, Pennsylvania, Ave. The food was delicious, the service was great!
Waiter was nice and helpful, food is great, love the location.
I expected better quality of the food for the price. It was good but, given the prices, we thought it would be better.
Very good, I recommended, all the best I’m back when visit DC
Waiter was very kind. It was my first expeience about Wasington DC and it was very cool for me
Despite the mad rush they stick to the reservation time to assign table. Food and presentation are both awesome. Service can be a little faster.
It was perfect. We had a superb server!!!
Food and service were excellent!!! Protocols were great along with the ambiance.
The food was usual good breakfast. The outdoor seating in semi-enclosed tables was very nice. The service was the worst I've ever had here or just about anywhere. Embarrassing as we had brought guests from out of town. No coffee refills despite 3 requests, no syrup brought for waffle and pancakes. After asking twice got it for one and then was asked "oh, do you want it for both?" Obviously both were stone cold by the time the syrup came. One of our guests never got her bacon until after 3 requests, we cancelled it ( everyone done eating). I don't know if I've ever posted negative review about a restaurant, but this was ridiculous. Maybe understaffed bcs of COVID, but we were there quite early and it was not even full yet. I would wait a while before trying again.
Nice ambience and good food. My daughter really enjoyed it.
We had some issues getting the food right and the drinks took a long time to arrive, but it was overall great!

Poor service but great food. The waiter was not a good listener and seemed to be in a rush.
Great service , great food. Would definitely go back.
Awesome service and awesome food! Must go spot in DC!
Thank you so much for dining with us! -Najjah :)
Everything here is delicious. Well prepared and wonderful flavors....from the drinks to entrees. A must visit place.
really outstanding food, innovative and extremely delicious, service was personal, congenial and relaxed but still professional, outdoor seating was nice but a bit rough on the decor side and street noise was in background,
Best place for comfort food. Best fried green tomatoes ever. I love all their restaurants.
So glad you enjoyed everything! Please come back soon! -Jessica
never disappoints ! Food and service is always exceptional .
Thank you so much for dining with us!! -Jessica
Very friendly and customer service oriented staff. Food options were incredible and when the food came out you wanted to try everything. Would come back anytime we are back in DC.
We were seated upstairs. After 15 minutes no one came to the table. Never was greeted by waiter nor brought drinks so we left; and they weren't busy. Won't ever go back
Thank you for your review and I am very sorry the service missed the mark & no one greeted you and the table or even brought drinks. I'd appreciate the chance to follow up and turn around the poor impression we left you with- please email me: Hospitality@frg.farm with a copy of your review, date dined + location. -Najjah
Food was great………………... Jeff was amazing & helpful
Thank you so much Jonathan! -Najjah :)
We really had a great brunch. We started with the beignets which were fabulous and I had a crab eggs Benedict so it was also quite good.
Great food and fast service!
Beignets were best we've ever had. Pims cocktail was good. Other food okay but the service was horrible. The waiter barely spoke, didn't give us silverware or condiments until we asked, didn't want to being syrup because "of bees", but we had waffles so no syrup was not ideal. Server just seemed like he didn't care. General manger seemed enthusiastic though.
This place is incredible! Staff was awesome, service was fast! We cleaned our plates it was so yummy 😋
Thank you so much for dining with us! Look forward to seeing you again soon! -Jessica
The Tomato Soup was excellent and worth going back for. The Grilled Cheese was tasteless and burned. My friend had the turkey sandwich and again, not good. Our friends had steaks which they said were excellent along with the mashed potatoes. I’d go back but be more selective in what I ordered.
Thank you for your review and I am very sorry the food missed the mark this time. I'd appreciate the chance to follow up and turn around the poor impression we left you with. Please email me: Hospitality@frg.farm with a copy of your review, date dined & location. -Najjah
Everything was excellent (food, service) except the watermelon with mint side. The watermelon had a few good bites but was predominately not ripe. $6 would have been fine if the watermelon was fresh, sweet and ripe.
Thank you for dining with us! -Najjah :)
We had a reservation. Others showed up free us and got seated first.
This isn’t a place I would return to. The food was okay but they try to do to much. Breakfast is pretty simple. Their french toast was a small brick and they didn’t have more than one syrup option. They just has watery cinnamon syrup that they made themselves it wasn’t bad but another option would have been nice. The service was nice, but the food just not worth the price. You're better off going to a dinner or a quick stop.
Oh no! I am very sorry for the disappointing outcome to your brunch visit this time. I would love the chance to touch base and hopefully turn this around! Please email me: Hospitality@frg.farm with a copy of your review, date dined & location. Thank you and we appreciate you alerting us to this. -Najjah
EVERYTHING was beyond delicious!! I can't wait to visit DC again and try more off the menu!
I am so glad you enjoyed everything! -Najjah :)
Great food, cocktails, service and very nice outdoor seating.
