Delicious food. Noisy restaurant. It took 20min to be seated (despite reservation).
The food was amazing as always! Service only lost points because we were placing our food order before the waitress had asked us what we wanted to drink, which was bizarre. Otherwise it was great! This is the perfect place to bring friends from out of town, which is what we did tonight.
My daughter loved the burger and I loved the kale salad with hazelnuts and a side of chicken. It was very very good!
Great lunch, atmosphere, and service. Highly recommend
Good choice so long as you do not mind waiting when you have a reservation and be waited on by a curt and hurrying server.
It was my birthday evening. Fantastic wings appetizer, excellent drinks, great ambiance, and fantastic birthday cake and service. Would definitely return again with other friends/family. Very clean restaurant and great surroundings at the Georgetown Waterfront! Must visit in DC!
The service was poor. We sat at our table for 25 minutes after we finished and no one came to clear our plates or ask if we needed anything else. Drink orders were also forgotten.
The food was good. But the menu does not give accurate descriptions. My husband had tacos which came with a fried egg on them. He does not like eggs and nowhere on the menu did it say eggs. The apps were great. My jambalaya was really good. Our friend had the halibut special which was good. The cocktails were good. Waitress was GREAT!
Had some hair in our food but the management took care of everything gracefully.
One thing I like here is the option to buy a half-a-glass of beer (I think they call it a "short.") That's about all I like so it's nice that's what I can order. I'd prefer it if they had a bread basket when you sit down, though.
Fun place to enjoy unique foods that are sourced from local farmers. The taste was excellent, the atmosphere was energetic, but getting there requires lots of patience on a Saturday night.
We had made dinner reservations for 5:30 pm as we had tickets to a show at the Kennedy Center later. The line of people trying to get a table was so long that we almost couldn’t get in the revolving door! We did have to wait a few minutes for a table, but given how busy they were we were just happy to get seated. The service was great, the food and drinks were delicious (and what a huge menu!), and the energetic setting right on the Georgetown waterfront on a gorgeous spring day was amazing. Highly recommended!
I have to say was somewhat disappointed in our experience.
Despite a reservation, and checking in 30 min. early, we still waited 50 minutes beyond our reservation time to be seated. Our waitress, China, was very nice and did a good job considering how packed the place was! She was actually the highlight of our experience.
Crab dip was good, but was shy on the crab meat. Brick Oven Pretzel was nice and hot, but the dips are pretty suburban. One of our party ordered the Marinated Daily Steak which while cooked properly, was extremely tough, as was the steak add on I included on my Fried Brussels Sprouts Salad which was woefully shy of Brussels sprouts. Other meals were good, not outstanding. The Banana Pudding Pie was yummy, but could have been improved with a shortbread or Graham cracker crust. Drinks were terrific. Would be willing to try another location, I have dined at their location at Tysons, again with the same issue, waited 45 min. despite a reservation, but the food was so superior, it made up for it. Great people watching.
We arrived at the restaurant a little later than our reservation. We didn't have to wait long for them to seat us. Unfortunately, we were seated at a dirty table. I thought the spot on the table was water until I touched it and it was sticky. I also noticed water stains on the table. My food was only ok; I ordered the fish platter. My guest got the honey fried chicken which was delicious. We ordered beignets, which were told would take 15 mins to cook. When they came to the table they were cold. I asked for a manager and asked if it was supposed to be hot, he said yes. I told him we had waited 15 mins for a cold dessert. He did remove it from the bill. Overall I don't think I will be going back. It's not worth it.
Great service, great food transform into great time!!!
Appetisers were good. Main course and dessert were average. Feels like a tourist trap. The food at the Founding Farmers in DC (sister restaurant) is so much better. Was hoping this place would be similar to Founding Farmwrs which was why I booked it.
I was disappointed that I missed brunch due to my reservation being at 1:45 and being unaware that it ended at 2. I did however enjoy my lunch, the shrimp scampi was amazing!!
Everything was AMAZING-the food was delicious (literally everything we tried at brunch), our server was extremely attentive and friendly and we never felt rushed. Just a great experience!
Amazing brunch! Great variety and everything was delicious.
Great brunch! Our server, Chelsea was out of this world amazing! The food was good but really the service made the meal! We had three people with food allergies in our group and they were very informative and helpful
Great atmosphere and superior service. Food was also excellent with a wide variety to please everyone. Wine list was nice with several appropriate options. This is a favorite go-to restaurant, especially after theatre events due to its late seating options.
Every time I have friends come to visit, FFB is one my favorite restaurant go-to's. The food is always excellent and there's something for everyone. I love the cocktails and friendly service. Will continue to enjoy FFB in the future! Thanks again!
Food was delicious . Wait staff terrific
Had a late after- show reservation and told the concierge we had 10:30 res. We didn't like the initial table and asked for a booth near the window (all were empty). The hostess said she was going to get the table cleaned and then disappeared. 15 minutes later I asked her if our table was ready and she had totally forgotten. She grabbed a rag and proceeded to clean the table. She disappeared again. We had to grab our own silverware and menus. 10 minutes later I had to literally stop a waiter to ask if he had our table. The food came quickly after, and was good, but the service was horrendous on this night. Kudos to the manager Molly who came over and chatted with us, and almost made me forget about the bad service. If not for her the review would be a lot worse. I believe this was an isolated incident, and I hope they will talk to and train their employees properly about customer service.
Delicious brunch on Sunday; however the weekday lunch was somewhat disappointing. The pork shank was very good but the fried scallops may as well have been from a fast food restaurant that serves frozen food - I'm not even sure they were scallops - they were all evenly sized and very chewy. The service was okay - our waitress disappeared for a while but turned up eventually.
Food is tasty! Energetic place for friends gather together! Will come again!
Good food, sat outside on nice night and great waiter.
I had asked the restaurant and main hostess about surprising my friend with a piece of cake as a birthday surprise. I even submitted this request via OpenTable and the hostess confirmed that she told our waiter. But they never provided the cake. I was pretty disappointed since this was something I re-iterated several times to the restaurant’s staff.
Food is so delicious. We go here again and again and I bring all of my out of town guests here. Love it!
Although we had a booking we had to wait close to 20 mins for our table. Service was slower than on a previous visit. The food was very fresh, but the risotto had too much salt in for my taste.
My first time at Farmers Fishers Bakers and it was fantastic! Right on K Street at the waterfront. Fantastic bar and the food was terrific...I had the fish and it was perfectly cooked. The service was exceptional, the prices reasonable, and the wine was yummy!
Family meal, great service, knowledgeable and enthusiastic server.
Reservations were at 7pm - did not get seated until 7:30pm. Why even take reservaitons? Food was good, service was ok. The patio area would be lovely in the summer months.
Farmers Fisher Bakers is my favorite restaurants in DC! I've been coming here for over 5 years now and always find new dishes to try out! I love this restaurant so much that I've spent 2 birthdays, my graduation, and countless date nights at this restaurant. My go-to is the shrimp scampi. If you have not been here- GO.
Love the connection to farms and farmers; great local sea food; great service; did a nice job accommodating a gluten-free need
It is amazing place and good location! Everyone likes eating there.
I made reservation at 7:15. But I got my table at 20:00. And It wasn't first time that I waited for my table over 30 minutes even if I made resevation. I am tired of waiting, I will not go there again.
Their selling point is "sustainability" but the servings are so large that a person cannot (and if they can, should not) finish their meal. How is all that food going into the garbage "sustainable"?
My wife and I dined there while visiting our daughter who attends college in DC and our younger teenage daughter was with us. This restaurant was outstanding? The food was extremely well prepared, well presented, and the taste was amazing. Everything is prepared on site in the kitchen, including breads and noodles. Even the sodas are hand-crafted. Each of us tried a different dish, we sampled each others dishes, and we were all very pleased with our selections. We had absolutely no criticisms for any of the food - it was all spectacular. The service was fast, friendly and attentive (without being intrusive). Reservations are recommended, and a must during peak hours. This restaurant is right on the Georgetown waterfront and the views through the expansive glass windows are awesome. There is generous outdoor seating in a protected area, also. We had a great meal and a wonderful time there. Farmers, Fishers, Bakers is most definitely on our "must visit again and again" list. We'll see you again soon! Highly recommended!!!
Make a reservation, which is pretty much mandatory. I think the wait when we arrived for our 515pm reservation was 90 minutes. Who ordered the
Pretzels, which were delivered hot, fresh, and with 3 great dips. The honey mustard BBQ sauce was amazing. Especially given how much I hate honey mustard anything. The pimento spread was very good and the French onion dip was full of roasted onions. We ordered the impossible burger, which is amazing, and the honey sweet fried chicken. So lightly coated, but so perfectly prepared.
