From our service to the food, our experience was outstanding. My family and i wanted for nothing. As always, I'm a happy customer
teh eggs are amazing, the hash browns are beyond amazing and lets not talk about the fried chicken, salmon and meatloaf. I leave Founding Farmers so incredable full that I almost need a stretcher to carry me out! I love this place!!!!
Sunday brunch The food was good. Pandemic charge not loving it. Charges for basic drinks a little too much. Not sure if I would go during pandemic again.
Friendly service from the host to the server! Order was fast and flavorful and exactly what we wanted! Those green beans were perfect!!!!
Brunch was delicious! The food and drinks were awesome. Best brunch me and my family have enjoyed in quite some time.
Had dinner and drinks on a Friday night. Started off with Bacon Lollipops and crab dip - both were very tasty. I had an old fashioned - I’m picky about those, and they made them perfectly. For entrees, I had the pimento burger - my date had the butternut ravioli - both excellent. I highly recommend Founding Farmers.
First time to visit and overall very positive. She enjoyed her crispy shrimp and my prime rib was prepared exactly as ordered. Sides were fine ( green beans weren't overcooked as is the norm in most restaurants!!), fries could've been a bit warmer, biscuits and cornbread were excellent. My Manhattan was delicious but then the downer: it took 20 minutes from the time we placed our cocktail order for my Manhattan to be served....her wine came promptly while I sat, and waited, and sat, and waited. Her pinot grigio was fine but my subsequent pinot noir was definitely off-tasting (perhaps poured from a bottle left open too long?). I let it pass because we needed to leave, but if time had permitted I would've requested a new glass. Outdoor seating on an unusually warm Oct evening was great, and the indoor area appears to be extremely well laid out and accessorized. Server was polite, but appeared to be preoccupied with other guests.
Altogether a pleasant experience and we plan to return. Other reviews have noted delays in service....hopefully this will continue to be addressed by managers.
Bread appetizer with prosciutto was great. Drinks were amazing. Food was good but not the same level as the appetizer. Maybe it was that we ordered steaks and not signature dishes. The service was terrible! We waited more than an hour to get our food, the server never checked on us and it was just four of us for dinner.
Was seated outside, the setting is extremely pleasant. Flowers, lighting, trees, and distanced tables made it the perfect spot for a warm fall afternoon. Nina was friendly, professional, and her recommendations were spot on!
The parking situation with the garage needs help. The food and atmosphere were nice.
The food was good, service was a little slow for how quiet the night was.
Birthday- terrible service.
Oh gosh! I am so sorry to read this. :( We never want our guests to experience "terrible service" and feel awful we dropped the ball so badly- especially with this being a Birthday! That said, I would love the chance to follow up and make this right. I will send you a DM with my email address to hopefully connect. -Amy
This food is excellent and the service was OK with one exception. I had called ahead to tell them it was a birthday celebration and they even noted it when I came in. But the waiter apparently was not informed. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.
When I go out to eat in Reston, its always Founding Farmers. The food is consistently great. Their craft drinks are inventive and the wait service was once again done well. A different Ryan this visit. He did an notable job.
Keep up the good work.
The care and attention to health and safety measures were on point. The service was outstanding. The food and drinks were excellent! We enjoyed a lovely evening celebrating my wife's birthday. Thank you for making it so special!
Went for brunch - most of food kept running out and you had to wait or go back for the buffet. Food was not impressive.
Our server was very attentive even though she was taking care of a lot of customers that were also dining outdoors. Definitely looking forward to coming back here again.
We came for Sunday brunch. Food was mediocre, I think the raves about the restaurant must be for the ambiance OR I need to plan for a dinner there.
The old paper menus would be so much better than reading it on a mobile device.
This restaurant is amazing. My daughter just moved here from southern VA and she likes comfort food. Everything we ordered was great, service was great (thanks George!) and we will definitely be back. Great place to celebrate her sweet 16!
Awww! Thanks for sharing this with us, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your daughter! :) We hope to have you both back soon, and call us anytime for a reservation: 703-988-7333. -Amy
Had heard such great things but found the food to be just ok. Nothing special. Unimpressed and expensive for what it was.
Rachel was amazing. She consistently checked on us made sure we well hydrated and didn't want for anything. The food was delicious and the overall experience was second to none
The food selection was good. The staff took extra precautions to comply with COVID restrictions.
Never on time....reservation means nothing...very rude
I am so sorry, Lee123 that this has been the case with your experiences and sadly, our team has left you with the rude impression that your reservation means nothing to us. :( This is absolutely far from the truth, but at the end of the day, we FAILED to prove this to you. That said, I would love the chance to touch base and hopefully lift your spirits & turn around your disappointment. I'll send you a DM with my contact info. -Amy
The restaurant was severely backed up and despite our reservation, we needed to opt to dine indoors, rather than our scheduled outdoor dining experience.
Oh gosh!! DMHay, I am super sorry for the many mishaps that you encountered and appreciate that you took the time to share this with us in your private note. :( I'd love to follow up about the disappointing impression you left with, and will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy
Our waiter was disorganized such that after he got our order right the second time we waited over 1 hour for it to be delivered
I am super sorry for the poor service this time. :( I feel absolutely awful that our team dropped the ball, and we kept you waiting for the replacement order to come through. That said, I would love to touch base about your experience and feedback. I'll be sending you a DM with my email address and hope to connect. -Amy
service was terrible, Waiter kept forgetting our food and drinks, he took forever to get our order. much better experience at the Tysons location
Oh dear! Jenny, I am so sorry the service was a total bust being slow & forgetful, and feel badly we failed to measure up to your experience at our sibling location in Tysons' Corner. :( That said, I would love the chance to touch base and do what I can to make this right! I will send you a DM with my email address. -Amy
Went for a birthday brunch. Food was good. Server (I think her name was Zoey?) seemed frustrated and had a bad attitude the entire time. I felt unwelcome and decided to skip dessert just so we could leave. Jessica came at the end of the meal and she was great, very friendly, and attempted to make up for it. May try again another time.
Enjoyed a Covid brunch with mimosas. felt comfortable the whole time and enjoyed treating myself to a meal outside. Outdoor seating was perfect as was the service. Nick was great!!
Great time. Food was very good. Our server AJ was great.
Hooray!! Thanks Sunshine for sharing this with us, and we appreciate it! :) -Amy
We always love founding farmers, service and decor was great. However the breakfast itself was overcooked and the quality was not to the usual standard we have found with FF. Disappointing for a rare breakfast date occasion and choosing this over other places.
I am so sorry the breakfast items ordered failed to measure up, and this sadly left you disappointed with your choice to host your special & rare occasion with us. :/ This is such a bummer, and I would love the chance to follow up & learn what items were ordered and what missed the mark, and also do what I can to make this right! I'll send you a DM with my email address to hopefully continue this conversation. -Amy
The food and service was wonderful. My daughter ordered the crab cake, which was about $31, I thought that was over-priced. The wine was also a bit expensive, but very good. We sat outside and had a wonderful time.
I love the founding fathers group. The fresh farm to table food is delicious. Great ambience, indoor and outdoor seating. Fast, caring service.
Hooray!! Thanks Ranford for your 5/5 Star rating! We really appreciate it and hope to have you back for another try soon. :) -Amy
Great service while sitting outside the restaurant.
Great time with my son with terrific service. Will absolutely be back.
Wonderful!! We love that you & your son had a great time with us, and thank you so much for letting us know! :) We look forward to your return and please call us: 202-298-8783 for any reservation help needed. -Amy
The food and service was great! Would definitely recommend. I went for breakfast, but hopefully lunch/dinner would be just as good.
Seever was very rude!
Founding Farmers is EXCELLENT!
Our server was superior!
We look forward to dining her again!
Not many healthy options, some of our food was not hot. Enchiladas had nothing but chicken inside, small beer list
I am very sorry for the disappointments from your visit this time, and apologize that the food was not hot, the options seemed limited and the preparation of our enchiladas missed the mark. :/ I would love the chance to follow up and do my best to make this right. I will send you a PM with my email address. -Amy
Food quality has suffered during COVID. Drinks are great as always.
Oh no! I am real sorry, Alberto to read our food quality has taken a turn for the worst, and sadly what you ordered failed to measure up to the drinks. :( I would appreciate the chance to touch base to learn more about what dishes fell short, and hopefully turn around the disappointment encountered this time. That said, I'll send you a follow up msg with my email address. -Amy
