Don't require that some food be ordered by a server if the servers never intend to stop by the table. We waited 45 minutes before we asked another waitress for help.

Found hair in the buffet food as well.

Not a great experience.

Hi there, we were eating our starters when the waiter came over with the main course. It was too fast and we had to put the starters to one side to make room for the main course. A meal should be an enjoyable experience and no one should feel rushed.
I had fish that was over cooked. I had to leave it behind me. The fries were also overdone. Very disappointing though the venue was pleasant.

Excellent time at the restaurant. Food was fantastic. People loved chicken wings and onion rings appetizers. Two hot the Impossible burger and loved them. I had a mushroom risotto that was delicious. Also heard good things about the fish and steak dinners. Service was very attentive but not obtrusive. Fast food service. Great overall atmosphere. I like the feel of the place. Open so a little lively and noisy but not distracting or overwhelming. Scene looking out to the ice rink and bright lights was nice for a winter dinner. I will put this high in my list for future get togethers

We tried the Impossible Burger, but it was overcooked. It was supposed to "bleed" which is why it's different than other vegan burgers; however, there was no juice left due to it being "well-done." It tasted fine, and the house made ketchup was delicious, but it was disappointing no to get the full experience of this dish.

Dinner here was a horrible experience. The noise level was so high we could not hear each other talk. We asked to have the music turned down, but even though waitress said the manager was reducing the volume there was no noticeable change in the volume level. The restaurant is supposed to use fresh local ingredients but the salad was mad from old wilted lettuce. We had Kennedy center tickets and scheduled two hours for dinner. We had reservations. We were seated 15 minutes late for the reservation and had to go find our waitress to order. The food took awhile to get to the table and we had to race to get to the show on time.

Farmers is our go-to restaurant when we go to the Kennedy Center. As usual, the entrées were fresh and delicious. Three of us had the daily catch (Corvina). The service was excellent, although we had to flag down the waiter at the end to ensure we could make our show on time.

Farmers Fishers Bakers is crowded for lunch. But, the staff kept things moving. Food was good. Not great, as you can't feed a hoard fussy food. However, it was tasty. Unlike so many buffets, it had not become bland. Highly recommend the beignets and sliced bacon. Skip the tacos and the puffy tacos.

We were there for the buffet brunch. We've also had brunch at the Tyson's Corner location and there seems to be a larger variety of food at Tysons. Still, the food wasn't bad. They do tend to run out of things early so we had to wait for them to replenish things like the honey pot chicken and the carved meats. The dessert selection was very small. We did like the fried shrimp which you had to order with your server. You can also order sushi, cinnamon roles, and biscuits from your server. Hot tea and coffee as well as unsweetened and sweet (Farmers) tea are included in the price. The Farmers sweet iced tea had an unusual taste -- some sort of fruit maybe? Our server was very nice and attentive. Despite it being a buffet he gave us good service. He filled our drinks without asking and even noticed when the sun was in our eyes and asked the table next to the window if he could lower the blinds.

Came for the food, which was great! Really good variety but wasn't able to sample all that they had on offer. Had a really great experience with booking. But service on-site wasn't great, especially the people at reception. They were really unwelcoming. First impression when you arrive is really bad because of this. Our server was pretty competent but I felt he didn't explain the brunch inclusions very well and served us coffee without providing or even asking if we wanted milk with it. Had to walk to the bar to ask for it.

Our experience could not have been better- the food was delicious, the service was incredible. In fact, when they brought the wrong dish for my daughter, they apologized and then brought the correct dish. The manager even came out and apologized that the wrong dish was given to my daughter even though we explained to the server that this was no big deal. But in addition, they also took off the cost of my daughter’s meal from the bill - something we did not ask for and never would expect. This level of service is beyond anyone’s expectations and the food and cocktails simply delicious.

This place had a fun menu and some of the items are good. But the service is not good at all, and the food, in general, is not done well. It was crowded on the Friday night we went, and it took forever for our drink order to arrive. It was wrong, but we didn't want to complain. (And the liquor looks to be about 1oz pours.) One person asked for just a salad to start - any kind of lettuce with dressing- and our waiter said that was not possible. We could only get one of the salads as listed. One entry came wrong, and we had to send it back. The correct order didn't arrive till long after everyone else was done. (This was a hamburger WITHOUT mayonnaise.) I wanted to see if they would comp that burger. The bill came and they had charged us twice for it. I tracked down the waiter and said "I think you tried to reverse this but accidentally added it again." He went to fix it, and still charged us for the burger. When. A $250+ tab has an $11 item screw up the experience, it seems easy to comp that one item and make us happy. They couldn't be bothered.
Crowded, so I doubt they will change.

Two observations: it takes a very long time (20+min) for bar drinks orders to be delivered; the team will aggressively clear your dishes to accelerate flipping the table (prepare to be rushed). I'd recommend waiting to order food until after drink are delivered - as this may incentivize the wait service to deliver bar items in a more timely fashion.

Make a reservation! Went on a Tuesday night in December and it was packed. Drinks are definitely different and very good. Ordered the Chief Mix Style 2012 in a scorpion, which would be for about 2-3 people. Also ordered the Bouledvardier that was very smooth and rich. The bartender was very nice even though he was swamped and had to take care of everyone else. Manager took us to our table and the waitress was friendly and attentive. Ordered the pretzels as an appetizer and the chicken tenders and the shrimp fish fry. Both dishes were good at hot, but overly battered. The fries were not hot but the steaming shrimp made up for it. I should've ordered the mussel pot instead, that would've gone well with the pretzels. Not particular a first pick to go to in Georgetown, but definitely worth a try since it's part of the farmer chain.

This restaurant has great ambience so, as a first time visitor we were prepared to cut it some slack in the food department. However, every one of our party of 4 LOVED their dinners. We were only sorry we didn’t have room for dessert! Excellent service as well!

My beverage was ok, food (impossible burger) wasn't what i expected including the green side with boiled potatoes. I think beets or herbs would have given both more flavor.

Server was great, locations is super.

Will go again and try something else.

Great experience once again! The food and drinks came out a little slow but it wasn't because of our waiter - he was TERRIFIC and so accommodating to all of our dietary restrictions and needs. I think the kitchen was just a little backed up since it was slammed there on a Saturday evening (lots of birthday celebrations) - but per usual the food was EXCELLENT. Both our server and the male host at the front were incredibly kind and accommodating!

Our server was terrible. We missed out on half of the choices because she failed to let us know you could order additional dishes as part of brunch. Also espresso machine was broke she brought me a cold cup of coffee with no cream. Very slow to clear plates. Table next to us left before they were attended to. Very dissatisfied.

FFB Brunch came highly recommended by a foodie co-worker of mine. She loves it and I could not wait to try it. I made an early reservation and came with a friend. The staff is friendly, the food is exceptional and the overall experience was great. I don't think I have ever had such fresh, delicious food in my life. So much variety, it was very difficult to know what to choose first. I am so happy to have finally discovered this gem. I will be taking my family to brunch very soon. I know they will love it as much as I do. Thank you for providing this wonderful experience. I am a fan and diner for life!
