Everything was wonderful. Our waitress was so great. The Bartenders made me a dealers choice drink which was delicious. All of the food was excellent. We had a great corner table. Only mishap of the night was that the coconut old-fashioned was not good according to the orderer. He said it was disgusting. Other than that it was a usual awesome trip to founding farmers.
The food was absolutely delicious! The pot roast hits every time!
poor service. poor food quality and absolutely horrible seating arrangement.
You need to show your vaccination card and your picture ID at the hostess stand, other than that the food and drinks are good and the service was also good.
I’ve been to this location several times and was excited to come back. Unfortunately the food didn’t deliver! The sever was good but the food was awful. The server even committed in how bad my beacon looked and took it off check. The bourbon French toast actually made me sick. Needless to say I won’t be going back.

Waited 30 mins even though we had a reservation. Waiting area was very crowded. We were seated very closely to two other tables, so we overheard their conversations completely. Server was great, food was delicious. Just be warned it is very busy and clustered. Even with that in mind though, I’ll be dining here again because the food and service is very good.
We did make a reservation. We were seated upstairs. Great ambiance. Hope was our server. She did an excellent job detailing the restaurant history and when asked for recommendations from the menu she outlined them marvelously. Great food! The handcrafted sodas were amazing. We had hibiscus and grapefruit! The chicken pot pie and another chicken dish on specialty menu were superb. Finished with a latte! Highly recommend for the whole experience!
Consistently satisfying gfood. The blackened chicken wings appetizer was my favorite.
Courteous service, and a lively but not annoying atmosphere; no need to shout to talk.
So glad you enjoyed everything, Carina! Please come back soon! -Jessica
We had a great time. 8 of us traveled to DC and we always come here for brunch. Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcoming staff who had our table ready right at 2:15. We were all ID’d and properly screened for vaccination status and seated promptly. Our waitress Carolyn was awesome, she had great customer service and was honestly just a great person. We’re coming back in a few weekends!!!
Thank you for dining with us, Jason! Look forward to seeing you on your next visit! -Jessica
My boyfriend and I came here for a date, and we absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was lively and everything we ate was amazing. We like to go out to eat a lot, and I decided Founding Farmers DC is my favorite restaurant in the city.
Thank you for the glowing review! So glad you enjoyed date night, Emma! -Jessica
Hostess gave our table away while we were in the bathroom after we already checked in and we were told we could use the bathroom. We then had to wait an extra fifteen minutes

Great place, but online reservation system was a bit odd. Restaurant staff called the next morning to confirm and correct reservation. Slight wait, but the food was well worth it. All of the staff were friendly and professional.
Thank you so much for your feedback! I am sorry the reservation system was not easy and I am glad we got it all taken care of! Please come back soon! -Jessica

Two friends meeting up for lunch. We ordered chicken pot pie, iced tea, app was crab and artichoke dip, lemonade, and a spicy fried chicken sandwich.
Ordered the much bragged about chicken pot pie. But, it’s not one in the traditional sense- the filling arrives in a cast iron pan with puff pastry baked on top. Not sealed, just put there- interesting presentation, but I wasn’t a fan of it. The filling also had a few pasta pieces in it- definitely not what I want in the filling. That aside, the flavor is great- savory and hearty.
Ordered the cheesecake, also not traditional. It’s texture not firm at all- but the flavor was good.
One of my favorite places to eat, but I’ll have to try other dishes or revert to my favorites and perhaps not try new items.
Eh, $80 for two people for lunch meet up and it was meh.
Great sever and food.
Server recommended amazing options
Food was fresh and well cooked
Very nice lunch
The food and service are both great every time! We noticed this time that although it was at least half full, it was still pretty quiet. We could have a great conversation without having to talk above normal. It’s one of our fave date restaurants and also one of mine & my boss’s fave lunch spots to get away from the office for a bit.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Traci! We look forward to you visiting us soon! -Najjah :)
The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding! Highly recommend and will be returning often.
Thank you so much for dining with us! We are so thrilled to know that you enjoyed your time with us! Please visit us again! -Najjah :)
I was a little worried about the new vaccine mandate and how that would affect eating in a restaurant. The process was simple and took less than 30 seconds for verification. I am so glad DC is requiring vaccines and that the process is easy.
The food and service was exceptional, as usual.
We are thrilled to know that the verification process was simple and easy. We look forward to you dining with us again, Jen! :) -Najjah
I’ve been twice. The food was superb both visits. I’ll be back!
Thank you so much for dining with us! So glad you enjoyed both visits! Look forward to seeing you again soon! -Jessica

Very tasty but the menu is a little limited. I was hoping for a larger menu.
The staff at FF made our dinner so special! We were celebrating our engagement and they took note and made it so special! The food was incredible.
Fantastic! Look forward to seeing you again soon! -Jessica
Our brunch at Founding Farmers is as always, awesome! I had the crab cake Benedict and my friend had the Farmers breakfast. We shared the beignets for dessert and they are as amazing as I remember.
Founding Farmers is still one of my favorite places for brunch in DC!
Thank you so much for dining with us! Please come back soon! -Jessica
Great food for the price! I will definitely be back.
So glad you enjoyed everything! Please come back soon! -Jessica
