First time there and this place was great! The food was very good, the service was excellent (ask for James!) and the RWDMV menu was a great value. Will definitely go back and recommend!

Got there at one. I did not expect only buffet brunch; I guess because it was holiday Monday (MLK). They were going to switch to lunch at two. By 1:45 not much left.

This was our first time here and we came on a Saturday at 2pm.

I liked that their was a cute little ice skating rink right out front.

Their website says proof of COVID vaccinations required to dine inside. We brought our cards. No one asked for them. ??

Our waitress did not know much about the menu items. However, she constantly went back to get accurate answers which I appreciated. First, they were out of vegan meatloaf, but that was an error and instead they were out of chicken parmesan. The one thing that irks me is when a restaurant is out of something. I get the excuse is typically "Due to COVID.." but chicken is sourced here in the U.S. not only imported from China. The manager came over to clarify our order. Long story short, there were a lot of hands involved in our order which caused us to be overbilled in the end and that had to be corrected by yet another manager who was almost rushing me as I explained to her the mix up, which was super annoying. The service was attentive and apologetic, but it just seemed disorganized.

Their bathroom sink water was FREEZING! No way to kill germs with that water temp.

The Food: The vegan meatloaf was delicious. The vegan mashed potatoes that was supposed to come with the meatloaf was not ready until we were almost about to leave and I had to get it to go.

My raisin brie roasted veggie sandwich was supposed to be vegan but arrive with cheese. The waitress apologized.

My daughter enjoyed her farm lemon chicken which was a substitute for the parmesan that was not available.

My husband's seafood fry was just "OK". He said while the fish crust was seasoned, the meat was bland. He did not seem that impressed with his meal.

I liked that when the brunch was over, the employees are allowed to fix themselves plates or to go boxes. You don't see that often. Most employers are stingy and waste the food. They gained kudos from me for that.

Overall, would I return here? Not sure.

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 ordered failed to fit the bill, and all in all, you were disappointed with your experience. It is sad to say we failed at our first impression, and I'd love the chance to turn this around! Please email me: hospitality@frg.farm with a copy of your review, date dined and location. -Jessica

I wasn’t satisfied with our overall experience because of how long we had to wait. Upon arrival we were attended quickly with our reservation details and our host sat us immediately. However, it did take a while for our server to come take our order, nothing too bad. We were constantly taking into consideration that our server was new and still in training and on top of that it was extremely busy. She was very efficient in taking our drink orders. However, we waited about AN HOUR after receiving our drinks to even be asked to put our food order in. We were constantly on the look out for our server or the young lady training her and seemed to never see them. The lady training our server walked past us so we quickly grabbed her to ask if we could put our food order in because it had been an hour since we got our drinks. Our reservation was for 8pm so at this point it’s like 9pm. We did not receive our food until 10pm. Which was very disappointing because the food was delicious but it took way too long (after 9pm it was not as busy). We were so hungry that our hunger went away, if anyone knows what I mean 😭

Had to ask several times to get our second cocktail. Took long to get our drinks. They were out of short rib at 5:30pm-not the best experience at Farmers Fishers Bakers

My mom and I had a very nice meal. My choice, the Ahi Tuna sandwich was very nice due to the fresh slaw that really flavored the well seasoned tuna. Mom said that her shrimp fry featured the " best shrimp that she had eaten since she traveled to the Deep South in the 1990s.
The service was wonderful. Our female server, I don't remember her name but she appeared to be of Asian descent, was so kind and accommodating. Thanks for helping me please my rather critical mother!

Good service. Food was very good. Sunday brunch buffet. They brought the food out in small batches so it was always fresh. The fried shrimp were excellent as were all styles of eggs. Great selection of baked goods.

We had the BEST time. Our table of 6 was greeted, served, menu suggestions, drink suggestions and it was amazing. I have a shellfish allergy-the waiter and the manager were right on it! Over the top service of cooking in separate pan, and the waiter even alerted the kitchen about French fries and the oil! Logan ROCKED it-you will not be disappointed-6 women all with different tastes, and menu selections—they were perfect! There were 23 of us in our party-the other tables even told us we had the best service!!

Usually my favorite of the three farmers locations in DC. Not last night.
Pros: Always get seated for reservation on time. Great outdoor heaters, even sufficient for cold night like this time, around 30 degrees.
Unfortunately, the service and food was severely lacking this trip

Our table didn’t have utensils and napkins. After our appetizer was served, we had to ask for utensils and plates as well.
Then the meal. Unfortunately waiter said the Ciopinno dish was being revamped and not available. Disappointing but understandable.
So i ordered the pulled pork and ribs jambalaya. Asked what was in it, waiter said ribs and pork on top of rice with salad. Sounded good
When it came, saw salad was loaded with onions which i can’t eat. i figured oh well, won’t eat the salad. Ribs were ok, but then saw there were tons of onions mixed into the pulled pork. Have NEVER seen onions in pulled pork. So called waiter to let him know. I simply would have been ok with another few ribs but he didnt seem cool with that and said i couldnt get pulled pork without onion as alternative.
So i ordered fried chicken jambalaya. took prob 15 minutes, and son had already finished his dinner.
Additionally, and maybe the worst, our appetizer plates and dish was STILL sitting on table!! I’d understand if short staffed but there were a ton of staff. Inexcusable for app dishes to sit all the way thru dinner!!
Go figure, when 2nd dish came, the salad again was loaded with onions.
And the friend chicken was soaked with grease and not crispy. Had few bites of inside of chicken and asked for bill. Told waiter what i thought of second dish, he said he told them no onions. I asked for bill.
They took nothing off, not even a drink or offer of dessert.
Not sure will return. HIGHLY disappointed.

Good food. The brunch buffet wasn't fully stocked at all times and quantity of food was low throughout the brunch hours.
