Stopped by for drinks and dessert on a birthday. Our server was patient, kind, helpful, and quick. Drinks were very good but the bar was very slow. Birthday girl loved her cheesecake. I had the bread pudding and it was tremendous. Bought a bottle of their rye. It has an interesting smoky flavor.

Generally enjoyed my experience at this restaurant. I ordered. Steak Frites Bearnaise with mixed vegetables and a baked potatoe. I asked for medium, but got basically one steak rare and inconsistently cooked (i.e., middle rare and ends medium rare). Be specific especially if you get the steak. The donuts were fantastic.

Took a visiting aunt and uncle out to dinner here - one is lactose intolerant and the other is gluten sensitive. The large menu and made-from scratch food meant that the server knew what was in every dish, and they had ample options to meet dietary needs. The one downside was they didn’t have any dairy-free desserts.

The food was fantastic - came with a friend for dinner. They have the Impossible burger on the menu and I love, love that burger. My friend got the Farmers Salad which was tasty and then the crab melt - he thought it was good. Came with very good tomato soup. For dessert we had doughnuts - really good! I had the creme brulee my friend has the carrot cake (fantastic!) and we shared the vanilla.

The service was really bad - so much so we had to laugh about it (even though it really wasn't funny). Part of my dinner was wrong, burger was barely luke warm, charged us for the bill of the table next to us (and it was more expensive), couldn't remember drink orders, etc. Table next to us has very similar issues. The server was very knowledgeable when it came to the menu and really nice so I will give him a pass and write it off as having a bad night.

The music was also way too loud. I HATE yelling to the person/people I am having dinner with. We had to ask them to turn the music down but, have to say, they play great music it was just the conversation I was having with my friend was much more important. They just need to remember they are a restaurant not a bar.

Will definitely return.

Had a wonderful evening here with friends! The staff and atmosphere were great as were the cocktails and food. There were four of us dining, three of whom had dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten free, low carb) we were all able to find something that fit our needs and was delicious. Highly recommend

One of our favorite spots. Great variety of food and cocktails, something for everyone, makes it very easy to bring friends. We've come once a month for the last five months and never had a bad meal there! Also the staff are fun and friendly, and always accommodating when we're in a rush to an event afterward.

The menu has recently changed and both my husband and I found ourselves to be disappointed in the results. I used to love the steaks there. Mine was wafer thin and over cooked. Service was off, and there was a communication breakdown. PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE BRUNCH!

Good evening!

I recently hosted my 29th birthday brunch at Farmers and Distillers and had a wonderful time. I would recommend it to anyone for a semi casual delicious brunch.

The quality of food plays second fiddle to none. The variety of options and the frequency with which the buffet was refreshed were particularly noteworthy. Both the host and wait staff were welcoming, efficient, and kind.

Funny story...I was planning the brunch with a friend who said in passing that my guests would talk about me disparingly for having a brunch at a restaurant that doesn’t offer bottomless mimosas. S(He) said that $32.50 was a lot for brunch sans alcohol. Usually, I would agree. However, I had been to F&D before, so I knew what to expect. I tried my best to inform my guests that they were in for a treat but some continued to naysay. Regardless, we arrived at brunch and were promptly seated. I merely hoped that F&D would vindicate my reasoning and prove the doubters wrong!

The looks on the guests’ faces once they beheld the salmon, multiple chicken options, crab grits, PANCAKES, which were particular delicious, provided all of the validation l might need.

F&D was the place to be for brunch!

I made a reservation for 12:45. I checked in at 12:28pm went to bar to wait for whole party (party or 2). When party arrived (12:40) went back to host/hostess to inform they. The host/hostess proceeded to seat two other parties of two prior to us. We had to go back to host/hostess to ask why we had not been seated yet. They explanation we were given was “ we are busing tables” Our response “ so the two parties in front of us could not wait for a bused table” No comment. Outside of the host/hostess the wait staff was excellent

Arrived early, seated right away. Our server was Abby and she was knowledgeable, attentive, and fun. The crab and artichoke dip was a great start. So many meal choices. The 4 of us were very pleased with our meals especially the shrimp and grits (without tails!), and the fried chicken with donut. There is something for everyone on this menu. Many drink choices as well. Definitely recommend!

Our party of 5 could not have had a worse experience at this restaurant, or possibly any other restaurant we've been to. We waited at our table for at least 20 minutes and our server never came. We had to go to the hostess stand to ask for someone. When our server finally came and took our order, we still waited. It took 45 minutes from when we sat down before we finally received coffee. The appetizers eventually came, but they were not appetizing. The dumplings were cold and rubbery. The fried vegetables and fried tomatoes should have been called the poo poo platter. Then came the prime rib along with the appetizers while everyone else waited for their main entree. The "prime" rib was thin, overcooked, and a pathetic piece of meat which was promptly sent back. Our other main entrees included the turkey avocado sandwich, which was edible, especially if you like dry bread. The fried chicken salad...actually pretty darn good and worth coming back for. The mac and cheese is probably the best thing going here. I wouldn't recommend the herb chicken...it seemed to be poached which made it tender, but it was served with green beans and peas on top, and had a taste I couldn't put my finger on. We've eaten here before, and obviously this place has gotten good reviews. However, they need to pay attention to the quality of food, and more importantly the service. It's clear they've become complacent and really have lost focus on delivering excellence....or even mediocracy. We don't plan on coming back, and hope this place can get their stuff together. Oddly enough, the manager wasn't even phased. There are so many other fantastic restaurants in DC, think twice about going to this place if the current trend continues.
