Excellent service and food selection is always perfect!
We arrived late in the city and it was quiet a surprise to have somewhere good to eat at.

The ambiance, and food was excellent!! Our waitress forgot some items that we asked for, so we had to ask her a second time. Overall, it was an excellent experience.

I’m a big fan of Founding Farmers and was excited to try Farmers and Distillers, but the food was just OK. I’ll stick to FF in the future. Service was great though.

While the food and drink was great as usual, the service left something to be desired. When we originally sat down, we waited 15 minutes to be acknowledged by anyone from the staff even though we were one of 2 tables with patrons. When we finally received water, the waitress left before we could put in any order, and had to wait an additional 14 minutes for an order to be taken. After that, the food and drink delivery were just slow, and we would never find the waitress when we wanted to order something. Would recommend the food, but would not return for the service.

Had a great time. Service was good. I personally have no complain but I just think that the old fashion could be better.
However, they are doing a great job there.

We were seated within a couple of minutes of arriving. We really enjoyed most of our food and drink choices. We had pork dumplings, and chicken spring rolls as an appetizer, and they were delicious. I ordered the mojito which was unique with bitters added, but it was very tasty. My son and husband ordered their ginger ale and really like it. It's got lots of fresh ginger taste, very refreshing. I had the scallops meuniere, my daughter had the cedar plank salmon, my husband had fish and chips and my son ordered the meatball parm sandwich. Unfortunately when our meal arrived, they brought a chicken parm sandwich for my son, and it was really overdone. He asked about getting what he ordered, it came when the rest of us we just about done. His meatball parm was really underdone, and because it was a pork and beef blend, he decided to not eat it at the restaurant, and to take it home to cook it more when he has it as leftovers. When he had it for lunch the next day after taking the sandwich apart to cook the meatballs more, he discovered it didn't have any cheese on it at all. The service was very slow, it seemed as if our server was spread pretty thin. Our server was nice, but it took a long time to order and receive food. We brought desserts home, and enjoyed them. I would return because of the huge menu and we enjoyed most of our food, but if service was really slow again, I would likely not return again.

Food tasted average, nothing impressive but it wasn’t bad. Not really worth the price in my opinion. Service was a little slow but it was a busy day.

The service was terrible. Our server was not attentive and water and drinks took very long to come to the table. Requested a sauce to come to the table and it never arrived.

Service was a 1 star for sure.

Food was very tasty.

This was our first visit after friends recommendation. Our server was excellent, but the food was bland to taste.
To note: our friends went to Sunday Brunch, where as we had dinner.

We went on Mother's Day and had to wait too long to be seated, the greeter said that the person who she told to seat us must have dropped the paper with my name on it. We only had seconds to get a plate of the brunch because they were putting it away. Our server was excellent. We got food to take home which was totally disgusting, the crap dip was full of artichoke but hardly had any crab meat and my friends shrimp scampi was nasty.
I will go again but not on a holiday and only for the brunch.

The service and foods are pretty good. They need to be more prepared especially weekend brunch and the middle of our brunch they ran out a lot of foods and drinks.
