My girlfriend and I had a wonderful dinner here during restaurant week in DC. The team went out of their way to make our experience an enjoyable one. Special kudos go to Benjamin, our server, who was fantastic. Nicole and Josue went above and beyond to make it an enjoyable experience and see that we had a good time. VAST improvements in seating speed, service, food, and hospitality since our last visit in the months following initial opening. Thanks again and hope to see you all again very soon.

The food was definitely wonderful but a bit over priced for breakfast in my opinion. Why is an omelette over ten dollars? Seems so silly. Additionally, our server was very distracted for not having many tables. Ex: asked for egg whites only and received regular eggs, needed refills on our coffee and waited quite awhile for it, etc.

We were visiting DC from NYC and because of terrible rain storms had to give up on making it to the Georgetown area for dinner. We had made breakfast reservations at Farmers & Distillers as our hotel was across the street. The restaurant was able to take us at the last minute and the farm-to-table fresh food was so delicious and special. Our waiter took time to chat with us and was attentive and fun. A wonderful night! I wish New York City had a sister restaurant!

This is a new favorite restaurant for us! Food was great. Atmosphere was great. Prices were reasonable for what we got. They sell their own handcrafted cocktails (distillers), which I did not try, but I will next time!

The food was amazing and we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. I can't say enough about Autumn Henderson, Private Dining and Events Coordinator. From the time I contacted her, she was prompt with responses and ensured our group was attended to. The staff was very friendly.

The brunch menu is exceptional!! I loved the kale salad, the grilled salmon, the little chicken potpies, the grilled multicolored carrots, the garlic green beans, the chicken sausage and of course the freshly homemade donuts!! The appreciated that they have an environmentally friendly outlook and practice too.

Their Sunday brunch is the best ever. It has both breakfast and lunch items. The Chinese fried chicken was fantastic as were the ribs. The baked goods were off the chart. Would you recommend to visitors to DC wholeheartedly.

We had a great time! The cocktails were on point and the food was spectacular! My two things I noticed are not complaints by any means, but things of note. First was an issue of miscommunication when ordering. I ordered a dish that was Mussels only and was served a mussels and shrimp dish which was not a matching my order. That said it tasted great and they did more than enough to correct the foul up. Second was a matter of timing. We were there later on Friday evening, and as our meal went on the area around us was being changed over for weekend brunch buffet. While not a major issue by any means it was a distraction seeing tables, chairs, and booths moving around us during dinner. All said, looking forward to going back!

Nice spot in Chinatown district. The restaurant belongs to the Founding Farmers chain which has a couple of other spots in DC. The food choice is realky wide including chinese suggestions and several traditional american recipes. I got the beer roasted chicken which was really good. Recommended, as well as the other restaurants of the chain (Founding Farmers in Foggy Bottom and Farmers Fishers and Bakers in Georgetown).

The chief seems more concerned with offering dishes that are different (Asia fried chicken salad) but unfortunately fall flat. The dish combined friend chicken coated with a syrupy Asian dressing with chinese noodles and a green salad. The resulting combined was unappetizing.

Service was unresponsive. Food delivery was slow.

We went for a business lunch with a reservation and the service was so slow we were there for over an hour and half. It took 20 minutes to put in our orders, and another 30-40 for the food to come. Definitely would not return for a business lunch- way too slow.

Food and service were outstanding. Everything is local and made in house, even the sodas were house made and absolutely delicious. We brought the kids and it was okay, but they did stand out a bit. The service was outstanding--server was very aware of us and anticipated our needs. We'll be back.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at Farmers and Distillers. It was a great night with great food and wonderful service. They were happy to take a picture for us and even gave us each a glass of champagne and sent us home with a box of their delicious doughnuts. Looking forward to our next visit.

Service needs some improvement. We waited a long time to have our order taken. Once our food was delivered, there was no timely check-back. Drinks ran dry and couldn't find our server for refills. Prime rib was overcooked- had to send it back. Baked potato wasn't fresh. Kung Pow dumplings were delicious. Deserts looked really good, but didn't partake, because figured it would take too long.

My experience at Farmers and Distillers was good overall. Our service was nice and made sure we were refilled on water and was great with checking in on us periodically.

The open floor, however, is very noisy and we had to nearly yell for the person sitting at out table to even hear us.

The food was OK. I ordered a well-done All American burger, but when it got to me it was undercooked and was pink throughout the entire patty. Our waiter was quick to make sure I received a new burger that was actually well-done. If not for our server, Amy, out experience would have been less than desired overall.

Service was friendly and attentive. Hot food probably would've been good if it had been hot; most of it was room temperature. The chili, though, seemed to have gone from the refrigerator to the dining room without stopping at the stove. Donuts were terrific. The room is noisy and crowded; tables for two are too close together for making trips to the buffet. "Background" music was anything but.
