We made a reservation for 4 to have a cocktail and bite before a concert at 6th and I. We were seated promptly and the hostess was nice. Our server sat us and took our cocktail order. I ordered a Manhattan and she got an old fashioned. After a few mins she came back for our food order but no cocktails. We ordered the sweet potato spring rolls. Few minutes later our spring rolls came and still no cocktails. When she came back to see if we wanted more food- I asked about the cocktails and said they were coming. My Manhattan eventually came out (watered down) and we were told the old fashioned couldn’t be made because the mix was done wrong. We didn’t understand since there isn’t a mix in it but we looked for another drink anyway. Then the old fashioned arrived about half full.
Long story short- cocktails super disappointing- server seemed like most of it was out of their control and while nice, should have gotten a manager to help her- and the food was really overcooked and inedible.

Thank you for your review and I am so sorry for lack of accommodation displayed by our service team. I am also sorry the food and drinks ordered failed to fit the bill, and all in all, you were disappointed with your experience. I'd love the chance to turn this around!

Great restaurant - lovely serving dishes and tea cups - wonderful breakfast. Excellent service. Upholstery and table tops could use an update but when could they do it? They are open for breakfast through late evening.

Best time to go is 11:30am-12noon. Later than that it gets crowded but manageable if you have a reservation. Food is great and worth the wait.

The food was just okay and some of it tasted a little funny. Also, when I went to get the mac and cheese I found multiple pieces of hair in the pot. The buffet style was not very COVID friendly. I have been to Founding Farmers before and loved it so I was very disappointed to not like this.

Great atmosphere for a Sunday brunch, but the food looks a lot better than it tastes. A lot of salt in some of the dishes.

I am used to the Farmers franchisees and quality level of food. Not sure if they were new menu items but the garlic pepper wings were disgusting. Way too salty!!!! I realize they were a soy sauce based sauce but they should really consider the amount of sodium because I truly could not enjoy them or finish them.
