    We had a number of different dishes. Most were outstanding, but a couple were marginal. The fried green tomatoes should have been more seasoned and the deviled eggs were too heavy on onions. Again, though, most of the dishes were outstanding.

    We (party of 5) made a reservation for Sunday brunch to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. We were seated fairly quickly and it took a few minutes for our server to arrive at the table. Buffet had a good variety but by the time you get back to your table be prepared for lukewarm or cold food. We were seated just outside the buffet and food temperature was an issue. The food was decent but in hindsight I would have preferred a standard brunch meal over the buffet, but this is only offered at the bar on Sunday I believe. The highlights were the fried shrimp, sausage, ham and French toast cubes. If you can get to your table before the pancakes get cold, they are pretty tasty, although the syrup was watery. My husband found the brisket to be under seasoned and we all thought the desserts fell short. We will be back for dinner perhaps, but not the buffet brunch. One thing to note: While I did indicate the occasion when making the reservation, there was no acknowledgment of the birthday; this is fine but thought I’d mention if that is something others maybe be looking forward to (typically a complimentary dessert).

    Tried it for the second time … thought they couldn’t possibly ruin a brunch… boy was I wrong. Between our dinner Friday evening and our brunch Sunday morning, we spent $700 at this restaurant and frankly I could have had better food if I’d eaten at Cracker Barrel for both visits…and likely would have spent at least $500 less for both visits.

    We always enjoy Founding Farmers, and we also love to takeout our grandchildren for dinner when we take care of them in the evening. FF never disappoints, and the location in Reston is always just right. We appreciated Kyle’s attentive and thoughtful manner, and the food was delicious, like always — Louis Cobb, 7 cheese Mac ‘n cheese, shrimp and crab risotto, and a cheeseburger prepared perfectly. The fact that one can also get the parking fee waived is an added bonus. Thank you, Reston FFs!

    I ordered the southern fried chicken dinner. The chicken pieces were tiny and they were overcooked, dry and under seasoned. The mashed potatoes must have been whipped in a food processor or by electric mixer causing them to be gummy/pastey. We ordered deviled eggs for an appetizer and they were runny and had way too much chopped onion in them…all I could taste was onions. Overall, being my first time eating there, I was expecting much better quality food for the prices they charge. I will give them one more try though. Who knows, it could have been a new cook or the chef that day.

    My friends salad with salmon was good. My veggie burger was poor. I gave food a "fair rating to average the two. I suspect if I had ordered a regular burger the rating would be much better. I haven't had a lot of veggie burgers, but that was the worst I ever tried. They should drop from menu and replace with something good, like Beyond Meat.

    I have been to this restaurant for both lunch and and dinner 3 times in the last two weeks with multiple people because our office in a contiguous building. Today was the worst. A $19.50 Pastrami sandwich with coleslaw. I got two small slices of fatty and tough meat that was close to uneatable. Their salads barely have any protein and their apps are pathetic. Never again!

    Our waiter was excellent. However, the buffet looked wonderful and there were some lovely offerings.....but eggs need to be kept wormer along with most of the other items that were suppose to be warm. We did order the cinnamon buns and they were great. It was not worth $32.00, therefore we will not be returning.

    This is the second time I have been here and the food was mediocre at best. The first time we had to ask that the food be returned because it was too cold and this time I had a simple BLT sandwich that was horrible.

    The food was just fair. Bland soup, so-so salad. Definitely not worth what we spent on it. Not sure if they have gone downhill or i just ordered the wrong thing. I've had great meals there but this one was pretty mediocre...at best.

    Our waiter took forever for our drinks, a runner dropped off the appetizers and made me move stuff and place and the table when it’s their job! They added a 5% charge for the waiters mental health and insurance even when they charge $25-$45 a plate! She knew it was daughter’s birthday and was extremely boring, I told her no dessert because I had made dessert at home. She didn’t listen and brought out something anyways forcing us to stay longer

    Buffet only on Sunday is not appropriate for everyone. I am gluten free as a medical necessity and I paid $35 for fruit and a little spinach salad without protein. Not many options for me on the buffet. Please bring back ala carte. Also so much respiratory illness right now. Buffet not best choice. We had 10 people in our party so couldn’t leave and go to another restaurant very easily.

    Wasn’t as good as it used to be. Waitress was either inexperienced or poorly trained. She never asked about food allergies, didn’t know much about the menu. Went with a friend with food limitations that had always been accommodated there. Not this time. Almost impossible to find something dairy free on the menu! No baked potatoes, just fried or mashed with lots of butter and milk. Second issue was mismatch between what was on the menu and what was actually served. Chose a dish—prime rip au jus sandwich—that was served with cheese, though it wasn’t on the menu. Asked for it to be replaced and it came smeared with garlic aioli (not on menu description) and much smaller meat to onion ratio. Took three tries for a mediocre sandwich to be correctly served. DH ordered a stew with a nice list of ingredients. $17.50. Little bowl of chicken lentil soup was served with none of the listed ingredients except the chicken. And small with a pathetic few pieces of “salad”. Utensils not provided as needed. Manager was kind and eager to win us back, but between the very mediocre kitchen and the poor service, we might be through.

    Food items in brunch were delicious. Lots of choices appealing to different diets. Some items looked like they had been sitting for a while.

    Restaurant week value menu was less than last year. Also, very important: the clementine cocktails are not being made with their usual hot. I believe they are diluting them somehow. Overall great food and service!

    Had a great first dining experience and plan to visit the other locations around the area. Unfortunately the price of items like the bacon blue cheese dates and chicken salad were simply not worth the cost at all and I would not get those items again. All the portion sizes seem small for what you pay. The burgers and grits seemed like a big portion though.

    This is not the first time I leave the restaurant disappointed with the food, no matter what I order. This was just a convenient place for our group to meet before the meeting at Spaces location next door, otherwise I probably would not have been there. I ordered steak chili and they managed to make it completely bland, no heat, no taste, but at least the salt and pepper were on the table. A colleague asked for hot sauce with his stew and the only choice was Tabasco - some dregs at the bottom of the tiny bottle...

    Brunch buffet was underwhelming. Eggs & sausage were cold,l. They were slow to replenish the buffet items. Waiter was inconsistent. Didn’t check back to see if we needed refills on drinks/coffee. Not worth the money
