    I had scallops and a moscow mule. The drink was the best moscow mule I have ever had. The scallops were fantastic. We also had a tuna tartare appetizer which was great. My only complaint is that they were not able to seat us on time for our reservation.

    This was my second visit and second service disaster. Ordered a shared appetizer, waited awhile and ordered entrees. Finally the appetizer came and two bites into it, they arrived with our entrees! We sent them back, knowing they would sit under the heat lamps so I said the fried scallops would be inedible sitting all that time so the waitress promised fresh. Finished the appetizer and the entrees came back (mine had salad on the plate, which was now warm and wilted) and the scallops came back ice cold! Sent them back so one of us watched the others eat for 10 mins, the manager came, still no scallops! (ps when they arrived they were not very good). Ordered decaf...it was clearly instant! Sent it back.

    Great find! Interesting, fresh menu. Although we had to wait almost 15 minutes for our reserved table, we were given an adorable booth in an alvoce - perfect for our family group celebrating the start of college. Service was superb - (and we had a water person, a great waitress, folks who checked our drink levels and another server who just stopped to check on us) friendly knowledgeable and engaging. Pretzel appetizer a ten; tableside guacamole yummy but not as much as we would have expected. Rockfish was the catch of the day and could not have been better! Brussels sprout salad a disappointment - shaved frizled slivers of perhaps half of one brussels sprout. Overall, we give this exciting vibrant eclectic & fun place a 9.5!!

    the volume in this restaurant was deafening - we could hear the voices of every individual around is AND the lyrics to the music, but we couldn't hear one another. there was only one server for an enormous section (ours) and he not only messed up our order but never came back, really, and no one cleaned our table and took our plates. we sat with finished starter dishes until our entree came...35 minutes later (one chicken and one fish). not a great time.

    I expected a good meal since I had been to Founding Farmers and loved it. I was not disappointed. I went with 3 other people and we all had great meals. The restaurant was very busy but our server consistently checked on us and made sure we had whatever we needed. A little on the loud side, but it was a fun place.

    went for dinner. started off with some spicy tuna and crab rolls, to die for. had a great view of the fountain lighting up - beautiful. got an beer recommendation from the waiter (flying dog agave over flying dog 'the truth'), it was ok, a relaxed ale. had a crabcake sandwich for the main, light, savory, lots of crab, not overly seasoned, on a challah bun. came with ok fries and an amazing cocktail sauce gastrique. had chai tea for dessert, came in a small pot, included 3 decent sized mugs worth of tea, very nice way to end the dinner. waiter was kind and not overly attentive, just caring enough.

    Everyone talks about how great this place is. Our reservation was for 2:30pm and we were informed that we could not get a table outside. My server greeted us with a dirty shirt and it was so loud I could barely hear her. Then my scallops and my companion's crab cakes were so salty. Maybe the brunch will be better from lunch but as of right now it doesn't live up to the hype.

    The food I had (salad and crab dip) was delicious. But I don't eat pork or beef, and carved turkey on the menu but not available that day...no apologies, no offer of substitute, just no. Then they supposedly had passed items (shrimp and sushi), that never appeared. I asked the waiter twice and nothing come (45 mins). I asked the manager and they magically appeared just for me. Other tables were not offered any. And they give you one shrimp at a time. The egg white dish was empty twice when I went to refill. They were making fresh guacamole and getting some without cilantro was too much to ask. I love Founding Farmers and this is a step down in service. There was one waitress, Giliana, who was delightful despite other poor service.

    The farmers are excellent in the amount of veggie options; the fishers are excellent with the artichoke and crab dip -- maybe add crabmeat for the eggs?; The bakers take the cake -- so to speak with the biscuits and sweet rolls delivered to the table within 3 minutes of arriving. Well done and well served!

    The eclectic menu offers something for everyone. The biggest problem is trying to decide what to get! Highly recommend the Kale salad, chicken tenders, pretzel appetizer, maki rolls and tacos. The drinks are a tad pricey, but I'm not complaining. I do not live in the area, but will return here when I come back to DC!

    This place has a large space without feeling like a chain restaurant--great for 2 or for groups (make a reservation first though!). We talked about the food for the first hour of our brunch it was that good. Buffets often mean low-quality since it is mass produced food--not here though! Their biscuits, pimento cheese, salads, fried chicken, eggs Benedict, and cinnamon rolls are the tops items that stuck out to me. Will definitely make the trek to Gtown more often for this brunch!

  • Not as good as the original

    Dined on 8/15/2014
    I prefer the original Founding Farmers to this one. The menu is not as good and the only thing that is better is the possibility of outdoor seating, however there was a 30-minute wait. Would be nice if you could book outdoor seating in advance. Even though it is marketed as waterfront, you can't see the river. Service was OK, waiter spoke very quietly and timing of table-visits were a bit odd. I had the steak/frites - no way it was 9oz! Very tiny piece of meat, but well cooked as ordered. Came with mushrooms, not mentioned and weird peas. Husband has fish-stew. A bit watery and not very nice. Might return to try something else if we can book an outside table or if cozy in winter, but for now will stick to one on Pennsylvania ave.

    A colleague and I met for lunch here on one of DC's rare mild summer days. Sitting outside was perfect. Wait staff was professional and accommodating. The only thing that keeps my food score from earning 5 stars is that the fig and proscuitto pizza I ordered was slightly overdone on the bottom. But it was delicious, as was the kale salad my dining companion had.

    The brunch is amazing- $30 all you can eat buffet. But the buffet is not the usual it's filled with both lunch and breakfast food with gourmet desserts fit for foodies. The space is large which was perfect for a large group like ours. Our server was never not smiling and overall it was a great dining experience.

  • Excellent food but too much Pork
    Chilly
    Dined on 8/10/2014
    Although the food at this restaurant was good, the Brunch buffet has too much Pork meat. Would like to see a balance of a variety of meats to choose from. The only poultry offered was fried chicken and the only seafood was crab dip drenched in fatty mayo and cream. Even the rice had pork meats. I was disappointed that there was no fish offered for brunch. The hummus selection was excellent along with salads and grilled broccoli rabe. The noise level was loud but manageable and the wait staff was great. The omlete station was good and had an excellent selection of vegetables to choose from. It is best to make a reservation if you plan to eat at this restaurant.

    Dined on 8/10/2014
    So much food, so if you don't eat a lot, the $30.00 per person fee is high for brunch. The food was fresh and refilled often. Plus, they bring extra food to your table. But if you fill up after some eggs and french toast - then it's definitely not worth it. We wouldn't go back for brunch, but would go for a meal we could order off the menu.

  • The Best Brunch!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 8/10/2014
    FF&B has the most amazing brunch, partially presented in buffet style. There was such a variety of choices and all were delicious. There are servers that also come to the table with items like homemade biscuits, cinnamon rolls, sushi, eggs benedict, fried shrimp, and pizza. Some of my favorite buffet items were the fresh corn, kale salad, puffy tacos with special toppings, guacamole, bacon still on a slab, egg station, and fried chicken wings. Lastly there were some homemade sweet treats like blackberry cheesecake, key lime pie, beignets, chocolate peanut butter pie that was so light and creamy. I have to return to DC in January and I can't wait to return!

    Brunch here is absolutely amazing. $30 gets you all you can eat at the very large buffet, stocked with salads, french toast, omelets, desserts, grits, guacamole, etc. All of the food is delicious, and the drinks are also delightful. The location in Georgetown can make it hard to get to, but it's worth it for a special occasion. If it's nice out, definitely sit outside and look out at the water and the fountain.

    Are you sure you didn't make a reservation at Founding Farmers I asked? I was not familiar with the restaurant, but our 24 year old daughter was and she thought I'd like it. And I do. The menu is large and covers a lot territory. And because everything is fresh, the kitchen may indeed run out of more than one item. We got there around 10:30 after a performance of the Lion King and, while starving, did not want a heavy meal. We started with some sushi - very good and table side guacamole - -meh. My guac is better. Two of us, while not vegetarians opted for a vege sandwich on raisin walnut bread. It was amazing. The side slaw was just ok. Soft tacos were a hit and the crab cake got high marks. The craft beer list is ridic good.

    This place is great, but is pretty different from its sister restaurant. Both have comfort food staples, but whereas founding farmers has more upscale fare that caters to the business crowd, Farmers/Fishers/Bakers is less upscale. Don't get me wrong, I loved having pretzels, chicken fingers, macaroni and cheese, and corn on the cob for dinner! The kid version of me thought it was great.

    Then this is the place to go. This is more of an amusement park without the rides than it is a restaurant. The noise level is airport runway loud; reservations are not respected and the menu is psychotic. This place takes the foodie concept and brings it to a new low for scene over quality. Yes, they promote local ingredients but so what? Who serves sushi with burgers and pizza and fried chicken? Servers require multiple requests for simple items and waiters don't actually serve the food; runners do which makes everything inconsistent and problems fall on deaf ears. Maybe the bar scene is cool; but again prepare to yell your order because that is the only way anyone is going to hear you.

    The atmosphere is nice. Lots of couples. However the food is mediocre. Not worth the hefty price. Very over priced for the quality of the food. For $20 an entree I expect to get an excellent meal that tastes far better than I can cook myself. I don't cook much but I can cook tastier salmon and steak than this restaurant.
