In DC on vacation and celebrated a birthday at Founding Farmers! It did NOT disappoint! I made a reservation for 7 and was seated within 2 minutes even during the dinner rush. Service was exceptional! Food was delicious and served in a timely manner! I recommend to all and will return when I am back in the DC area!
Honestly? This may be the most overrated restaurant in DC. I've eaten here twice now. Both times I dined on very mediocre food and had an upset stomach later.
Been here before, will be back there again. A good place to eat anytime of day!
Terrific service (with very good recommendations from our server - the only subpar element of one entree was immediately redone at the server's initiative). Cocktail (Winter Pie) was definitely over-iced, but very good. The food was exceptional, especially the goat cheese ravioli. A perfect place to go after visiting the Renwick.
Wonderful restaurant - a little crowded, as most good restaurants are, and way too loud, but the amazing food is worth it!!!
Staff seemed unfriendly and the front door hostess was rude. We had a reservation for 3. I was out parking the car while my wife and kid went inside. My wife has a knee injury in which she reviled to the hostess but the hostess kept insisting my wife wait for me before finally allowing my wife to be seated. Secondly, my chicken and waffles were cold. They could not heat the syrup which also was a let down. I felt like for all of my troubles it sure wasn’t worth the amount I paid. It’s a shame because I heard so many positive things about this restaurant.
My boyfriend and I had brunch here on MLK This past Monday, for our anniversary. They were nice enough to seat us after reservation time. We ordered drinks one mimosa and one Bellini, the drinks came out very warm. I for one can't drink warm champagne, we informed the server and he brought new drinks out in cooler glasses about 10 min after. They still needed to be colder, but we drank them. We both ordered the crab cake Benedict, thinking being near D.C. It would be great crab. Not the case at all, it was a very small amount of crab (maybe two bites) and the English muffin was very hard. We would not order crab Benny's again, if we go back I would order the crab cakes off of the lunch menu, they looked like Maryland style crab cakes, what I expected on the benidicts being that I saw them being brought to the table next to us.
Founding Farmers D.C is one of my favorite places in Washington, D.C. I always try to get my friends and family members to go here when they visit. I love going for brunch (Beer Battered French Toast is amazing!). The service has always been great. The staff handling the reservations are awesome and very friendly.
We came with a toddler, and the restaurant was great with accommodating us, and her walking around. I love Founding Farmers! Food is great, ambience great, service great.
