Showed up 30 mins early for our reservation. We were told they were running on time and to come back in 30 mins. Came back 5 mins early, and then waited 30 additional mins to be seated. The worst part, is we were waiting patiently, because we understand how it can be, but then saw them seat someone who came up and bitched. And that was after we were told we were #1 on the list. That’s what happens when management is greedy and overbooked reservations and then takes walk ins over reservations. Terrible experience and food was good, but definitely not worth that kind of treatment. And not even an acknowledgement of the poor treatment. Bad management.

Overall the experience was very good. However, we were disappointed that the menu change resulted in FFB getting rid of the breads and broths, which was our favorite appetizer. Additionally, the special of the day, the corvina, was overpriced and the veggies that came with it were lackluster.

Would still refer FFB to a friend, but these issues were disappointing

Wait staff was friendly, attentive and prompt. Spicy fried chicken with donut was the best, crunchy and well seasoned. Fried fish platter was good; wish the crab cake was not breaded and deep fried.

Outstanding food! Food service was exceptional, but our waitress showed up to take our order and to give us our check. I'm glad that no one at my table wanted a drink refill.

Bar service was very slow. We ordered a second round of drinks with our entrees. We were almost done eating...we said to cancel the order. The server said it would only be 2 more minutes so we said all right. By the time the two drinks came we were done eating and canceled the order.

The manager came over and apologized and said he was removing the drinks from our order. At the very least since we never received them. It left a bad taste in our mouth on the experience. The manager could have comped the first round of drinks.

We won't be back.

Great location. A lot of variability on the menu with interesting options. There were 6 of us in the party and all the entrees were way too loaded with salt. I like salt but this was over the top. Could taste it half the night as we all were drinking a lot of water as the excess salt created significant thirst.

It was an insanely busy night with many people in DC for springbreak.The hostess upon checking in was rude and dismissive...albeit it was like an angry mob descended.We got seated and it took 25 minutes for our server to arrive...we ordered drinks,apps and mains since we had his attention.My cocktail took 35minutes to arrive and when it did,had no straw..it was a frozen drink.My kids ordered Arnold Palmers and took even longer to arrive,”because they had to make lemonade”.The apps were long gone at this point,and by far the highlight of the meal.When the mains arrived,my short rib(not ribs)where brittle like jerky,and some mystery green veggies along with the wrong baked potato ...so disappointing.At this point Kendra the manager came over and couldn’t have been nicer.Apologies around as well as desserts for us to leave on a pleasant note.She was great.I would go back with an open mind...Just was a very disappointing meal that was supposed to be fun.

Appetizers arrived just before main course, kitchen didnt prep food timely to enjoy.
Server was very apologetic & removed some food items from bill to compensate.

I had high expectations for this restaurant but the food was not great. The fish was salty, the sauce in the seafood stew was bland and too creamy, the fries were too salty, the kitchen ran out of flour so no pizza was available and there was a piece of metal in the salad. The staff was very nice and apologetic but it was disappointing.

We were very much pleased with our first visit! Our party of 7 arrived at 11am for an early week day lunch. That was the perfect time. Our server was pleasant and helpful and the food was excellent - a superb value. Next time we are in DC, we will be revisiting Famers, Fishers, Bakers.

I loved this restaurant in the past but our last experience has left us with much to be desired. We invited some friends after bragging about the place but they were unimpressed. We ordered 2 appetizers- one never came and one came with our dinner. My husband ordered steak and loaded baked potatoes- instead got plain baked potatoes. The shrimp in our cioppinos were tough and over cooked. Our waiter was new and couldn’t answer any questions. Very poor service

One of the best weekend brunch buffets in DC! The food is fresh, flavorful and abundant! The passed items and made to order eggs are an extra treat. The mixed drink menu is deep and delicious. The deep-fried french toast is absolutely divine as is the thick cut bacon! Reservations are highly recommended.

We have been to this restaurant a few times. But the recent visit was very poor. They sat us down very late even though we had a reservation, the food was late, the service was poor and slow. The orders were brought to the table incomplete. Some of the food was cold. It really deflated our evening.

I am alway excited not come back to FFB because I love the ambiance, creative menu and service
I was disappointed this time . It was very busy Saturday nite, so allowing for that , I could
Make lots of excuses. But our service was lousy and the food was sub par from my previous 12-14 visits.
Our server though efficient, not friendly, in familiar with the menu and essentially pouted when we had to have our drinks remade. The Brussels sprout salad lack the amazing flavor from before Pizzas were generous and flavorful but cold when they were delivered. What happened to the French press coffee?
I am honestly gonna think twice about coming back

I have been to the sister restaurants and they are very good. We had significant service issues and the food was average. We had a reservation, had to wait 40 minutes anyway. Then, we had to wait very long to get drinks, order, well, essentially everything. It took almost 3 hours to eat that night. Ridiculous. Not worth the wait at all.

We arrived with a reservation & were made to wait in a crowded, not very accommodating receiving area. After waiting 15-20 minutes, we were shown to a cramped table for two along the back wall between two large groups with cute but loud children.
My husband & I ordered drinks, he an appetizer of clam chowder, & both ordered entrees. His soup arrived before his beer. He ordered the fish special which pretty good. I ordered the Brussels sprout butternut squash pizza. It came out dry, Luke warm at best, with no sign of butternut squash & at least three inches around the outside of just crust, no topping at all. After I complained, the manager came by & brought some cold butternut squash purée which he adamantly insisted was on the pizza as a base. I certainly couldn’t see or taste it. But it’s just as well, the purée had an odd metallic taste anyway.
This was our second visit to this establishment. The first, for brunch, was good. After this visit, there will not likely be a third.

The brunch buffet on the weekends is fantastic. So many great foods! One thing to note: if you're making reservations for Sat or Sun AM - Open table allows you to make them for 8:45 AM - but they don't really open until 9:00 AM. This was a bit awkward for them and us. Our waiter was good - but I will say he didn't make everything super clear about the buffet versus what's available to order from the menu. We overheard him telling other customers about things he had not told us....so that was odd. But - the brunch was amazing! And we would go back in a heart beat...just no earlier than 9:00 AM :)

Such a petty, great food with extremely poor service. Will not return and won’t recommend. Particularly surprised because we have been at the bar many times before, great food and drinks served by awesome bartenders every time so we decided to try the dining experience. I wish we didn’t. Arrived 5 minutes early for a reservation - we celebrated my friend’s birthday. We were seated promptly at 8.30 in a very busy environment but with tables open.

We weren’t acknowledged for a good 15 minutes at the table after seated. Everyone was running around looking very busy - all waiters, bussers and hostesses. No water was given, nobody even cared we were there. Kept getting passed by with no eye contact. So the birthday celebration already started out on a very poor note. Finally I asked a hostess if we have a waiter at all - that’s when I guess someone was assigned to us.

She seemed very rushed once she greeted us. Placed drink orders with appetizers. For our surprise the food got served in 5 minutes, WAY before our drinks were served. Not sure what the method behind this was. Bar wasn’t even packed. So we ate our apps before we even gave a toast. By this time we agreed that this was a very bad decision to come here. Main meals came out ok, green beans were stone cold with the salmon, I think they served the sides on the plates before fired up the salmon. After this we didn’t even think of dessert, we were just ready to get out of there.

Overall experience was very poor. Will not return to main dining, only to hang at the bar.
