It was very good. But we prefer Founding Farmers, and booked this restaurant because Founding Farmers is closed this week.

We had a reservation for 4 at 1:00 and arrived at 12:58pm. They said they’re cleaning our table and we’d be sat within 2 minutes. 15 minutes later we checked in with them and they said they’re now cleaning 5 tables, and we’d be sat within the next 10 minutes. WE DIDN’T GET SAT UNTIL 1:48pm! If they were backed up, they needed to be honest in the beginning and let us know there would be a wait and we could have enjoyed a drink somewhere else in the meantime (or at the bar inside) instead of standing outside sweating with our masks on waiting. We then should have been offered something as an apology. The drinks also took awhile to come out when we ordered at the table. Maybe it’s because people stayed late for brunch, but that’s something you’ll have to figure out better for next time. Terrible customer service. Do not lie to your customers!

I had an issue with how the buffet was being done. I understand during this pandemic that is safer for servers to dish out the food. But it would be better if the servers took care in putting your food onto your plate. The server I had just threw all my food on my plate, piling everything on top of each other. I have a serious issue with my food touching. I told him that and even asked for a second plate and he did it again. Also, he had an attitude when I asked him for the 2nd plate and when I asked that he not pile the food on top of the other food. Our server was EXCELLENT at the table. I would just caution to inform your servers on food handling. Thank you

All they had was buffet style breakfast and was not listed on the website. During this time with COVID, should not just have buffet style Only. Only found out after ordering coffee. When we decided not to eat there with Buffet style, was charged $20 for two cups of coffee.

Hi Patrick: I am super sorry to read this and feel terrible for the confusion! Our website does have our "weekend brunch" menu available and also brunch FAQs available at the bottom of our homepage. :( That said, I sincerely apologize this was unknown and would love to make this right! Please email me a copy of your review + date dined + location: Amy@FRG.Farm. I appreciate it and look forward to being in touch! -Amy

Best crab dip I’ve ever had! The food was so good and so fresh.

The fish tacos were a huge disappointment, small piece of fish drowned in sauces and other fillers.

Four or five stars ?
Four on an absolute scale, five in Covid times.
Food options are a far cry from what we remember from BC (Before COVID). Nevertheless, service is good and friendly and it remains a very good choice in NW DC.
There’s one complaint, though ... the Plaza fountain (we sat outdoors) is unnecessarily noisy. Hopefully that can be fixed for a great outdoors experience.
Guess we’ll be back before long.

I came here on a wet Friday afternoon with my wife. We made reservation previously and the wait was reasonable. After reviewing the menu we decided immediately what to eat. For a starter I had the White Wine and Garlic mussles, it came with a fresh loaf of bread and for lunch Fish, Chips and Beer which comes with a large pimento cheddar biscuit.
Beside we wanted to try the corn casserole but it was not available at that restaurant only the fresh pretzel (4 large pieces) and we were warned by the waitress that the mussles pot and the fish and chips comes with bread and we agreed to have it because we wanted to try. Yes, there was a lot of bread, which was delicious regardless and I took it back home for breakfast the next day.
Everything was delicious the two pieces of cod fish were slightly breaded, just the way I like it and fresh, it comes with a side cole slaw, the big pimento cheese biscuit (taste 1000 better than the other restaurant (RL), and a side of tartar sauce and ketchup. Oh let me not forget that the fish and chips also comes with a small glass of wheat beer.

Very good customer service. We had a little mishap & manager Kendra did everything she could to make it right and waitress Michelle provided great service. Loved the NY strip with enchiladas and sweet corn cake salad. Would definitely recommend.

Very disappointed in my experience. Sat us 65 minutes late from a reservation had for weeks, and only after checking in four times. Even then, service was terribly slow, and food and drink not up to par for the price.

Despite having a reservation and it being only a table for 2 - we were placed in the worst table ever - between the outdoor tent and window. The ambience was "dirty tent" and we had to deal with folks passing behind us during our meal. We were placed at this table as I was with my 16 year old son - I considered complaining but did not want that to be the way my son remembered our limited time together.

We thought this restaurant was overrated. We arrived for a breakfast reservation. One young, under-enthusiastic man showed us to a table. He appeared to be the only person around - both seating and serving. I figured out why when I went to the ladies room. It appeared that a staff meeting was occurring where several people were in attendance. The restaurant had 15-20 customers at tables outside near the fountain, and this young man was the only person attending to them all. We were served our breakfast in a timely manner, and it was good, but it took quite some time for our drinks, and we never got our requested extra syrup. Poor management decision to leave all service to this one person. Unfortunately, this poor service choice outweighed the good food.

Out food was great cocktails good

But i felt like our server wasn’t swamped and might have been giving us forgetful service because of a “different reason” if yu can read between the lines. We enjoyed our food , i got sushi and shrimp pasta in addition to calamari. Yum !

This has become a must visit restaurant for my fiancé and I when we're in DC. Unfortunately, this time may have become our last. Most of our food was absolutely delicious, but our service was absolutely terrible.

We dined outside, which was nice, but we we didn't have a very nice view - we were placed just outside the tent overlooking other diners within the tent. We felt ignored by our waitress. Because of where we were sitting, we could see her return to other tables far more often than she visited us. We finished our appetizer before she even came back to take our entrée order. I was halfway done with my entrée before she realized it was missing a part and she needed to go get it. It was just not the service we've become accustomed to at this restaurant. Their iced tea and sodas are delicious, and the lobster/spinach dip was amazing! If you can overlook the people bringing you the food, you'll enjoy yourself.
