- MBMyraBWashington, D.C. Area •1 review4.0Dined 7 days agoDelicious meal in a lovely setting! Service is superb. The only criticism is that tables are too tightly packed. We were in a center table so had to constantly scoot in to let people by. That said, it was Saturday night so very busy. This may not be an issue at other times.More infoMacon BistroPrice: Moderate• French American• Friendship Heights•4.3

- NNicoleNew York / Tri-State Area •5 reviews5.0Dined on Jan 1, 2023We were celebrating and hosting friends from out of town and brought them to Founding Farmers for the great food and ambience. It truly exceeded expectations. It was a busy day at the restaurant (new year's day around brunch), but every single staff member we interacted with was so deeply kind and present with us. We had someone with allergies with us and the whole kitchen and pastry team looked out to care for them. Major shoutout to our server Randy (Randi?) and manager Josue who were both spectacular. And, as always, all of the food was out of this world. We will be back and we will recommend to others. Thanks for getting our new year off to a great start!More infoFounding Farmers - DCPrice: Moderate• American• Foggy Bottom•4.4
