Farm to table dinner. Everything is fresh and tasty.
It is busy and noise level is high, so expect a relaxed ambience, not a candlelight dinner - it was perfect for us!

Food was cold, servers had to be asked for everything. Brought coffee with no cream, for example. Finally brought cream after being asked twice but didn’t bring spoons.

Food was cold, eggs dry, most buffet offerings were empty.

Crazy expensive for cold brunch.

We won’t be back.

Brought visiting family to Farmers & Distillers for the first time. My aunt had a food allergy and the manager was kind enough to come to our table and speak to her about food she should avoid. Great customer service and our waitress Alex was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and gave great suggestions. I would recommend this restaurant over and over.

I meet a group of 5 people in DC twice a year for a business meeting. This is the third time we have returned to Farmers and Distillers. Despite there being many dining options in the city we return here because the food is great and the service even better. The menu is varied with options for everyone.

Food was delicious, but since we came around 1:45pm, they started wrapping a few selections up and we never received any of the small passed bites. Our waiter also took too long to greet us and just seemed very overwhelmed. He also never checked with us to see how our food was and got a few of our drink orders wrong. We were very happy he comped it though!

Hopefully, the service will be better next time and we'll definitely make an earlier booking so we can taste everything!

Great meal! Salads were incredible. Got a bit busy on Sunday as we were dining and the quality of service became less attentive. We had to track waiter down for check after our plates had been cleared. Overall Great and can’t wait to try the rest of the Farmer’s restaurants.

Food was phenomenal, but had a few service mishaps that slightly took away from the experience
- We ordered corn bread for the table that never came
- Drink Orders came out incorrectly
- We has asked for an additional menu for an additional guest about 3 times for it to finally be brought over

Their extensive menu with diverse offerings at reasonable prices makes F&D a great place for dinner with our teens. And the consistent quality of their dishes makes it a place my husband and I also choose for date night. Farmers & Distillers is solid and doesn't disappoint. Oh, and they have excellent donuts. Not sure you need anything more than that!

I really wanted to like this place. The menu in embossed leather is beautiful and dining area is well-decorated. The donuts are AMAZING, but the meals we ordered were merely decent, and fairly bland (fried chicken w/ Mac and cheese; spicy (not) pork and beef with noodles; Chinese riblets). Nothing to write home about. Our server was friendly but not particularly attentive. Then when I got a portion of my lunch to go, she put it in their container and because it was very liquidy, when she handed it to me, it spilled out of the container, into the paper bag, and all over my white linen pants. Her response wasn’t to apologize, give me a coupon, offer to take money off the bill or pay for dry cleaning, but to say that it’s the only kind of container they have. Not impressive and I won’t likely go to Farmers and Distillers again. It’s just too marginal for the money.

We admittedly went on a lunch break during a convention nearby. When we arrived they were slammed with a lot of people all at once. Our drinks from the bar took forever to arrive, our food took about 30 minutes (we didn't know that it was a made from scratch restaurant!) and when it did arrive, the order was so mixed up we couldn't tell whose food was who. I'd say this is not the spot for a lunch break, but would be better for a long dining experience for dinner!

Pre booked a table for 8pm with the specific request to be seated in the main restaurant area as we had a 9 year old with us. We were given probably the worst table in the bar area. When we asked if we could be moved the staff member dealing with it basically fobbed us off so what was the point of pre booking?

Whilst waiting to be seated we purchased drinks at the bar including a vodka and tonic which was totally flat. When we mentioned it to the bar member she said that was the way they served it in there. We didn’t get a full bottle of tonic (flat or otherwise!) at at $12.50 I think the staff could do with proper training on how to correctly serve a spirit and mixer.

We paid for our drinks but left the restaurant without ordering any food as we felt very disappointed with the whole experience.

We went to a nearby restaurant where we thoroughly enjoyed our evening there.
