Was disappointed because I had heard such great things. The service was poor, the food was okay - certainly not spectacular. My wife ordered a salad had roasted chicken added to it and there were two bones in the chicken. Didn't live up to the hype for the price.

We came here and it wasn’t too busy! The service was good and the food even better. The brunch was what we had heard about but we came for dinner and still were pleasantly surprised. Will have to come hack for the brunch menu!

This was our first time back since Covid. I must say that I expected more in terms of preparation.
First, no one asked us any questions in relation to the virus. No one checked our temperature. We only saw 1 sanitizer at the entrance and on the second level there was one and it wasn’t touchless.
Secondly, The utensils were cloth and the silverware were real. The same person who was your waiter/tress was cleaning tables and bringing food.
I feel like there should be a specific person cleaning and not handling food, money, receipt and clearing with no sanitizer in between.
The food was good!!
I enjoy coming to this restaurant, so I hope they’ll improve in protecting merchants during this coworker.
And yes, I know what I’m taking about because I’m a healthcare worker. You don’t have to see to believe, but this virus is real!!

Wonderful outside breakfast! Veronica stopped by to check in, and we felt well taken care of. Staff was courteous, polite, and they had safety precautions in place. It was a nice touch at the end with check presentation, once the server took our card to process payment. They sprayed the card and pen with a hand sanitizer infront of us after asking if it would be okay to do so.

Ekendayo is an attentive server. Very knowledgeable about the menu. Uberly accommodating. I plan to visit more often for such great service and FOOD. Amazing Hash and Eggs cooked to perfection. I was anxious to try the new blueberry jam. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Best English Muffin on the planet.

Excellent food with friendly service -- I love the farm-to-table selections. SO YUMMY!

I did wish the interior felt less office park? And the floor was super sticky.

Good social distancing. We ate breakfast outside on a beautiful day. Our first table was by a speaker, so they moved us to a different table upon request. (Hearing issues) Our server was lovely and knowledgeable- made great suggestions. Portions were generous and we left with extras in a to go container. Will definitely be back!

Founding Farmers at breakfast was perfect! Everyone was friendly. The building and space was fresh and clean and well put together. The staff was excellent. The food was outstanding. Fresh squeezed OJ, light and airy beignets, and a perfect peach Bellini were only a few of our favorites. Our party enjoyed everything about our experience. We’ll be back.

Our favorite place for breakfast in DC when I am in town to visit my daughter. We went early on the first day of inside dining being available. We were the first to eat indoors since the shutdown and we were the only diners there. FF is a large space and can easily spread tables apart while starting inside service. Food was great as usual and who can complain about service when you are alone in a huge space? All precautions were taken to promote safe health conditions. I encourage everyone to get back to FF and support this ever popular restaurant.
