Very romantic and great vibe
Wonderful dinner at Founding Farmers. They have the system for working with “social distancing” and dining set up and running smoothly.
Very good. Some of the items were not as accurate to the menu, so we had to return a plate because it was too spicy. However, the staff was quick to take care of it and found us a suitable replacement.
Our waiter, Osman, did an excellent job making sure we were well taken care of! I am sure it is not easy to wear a mask while rattling off all the specials and information but Osman did such a great job! The way they had the tables set up was a good distance away and provided a bit more privacy as well.
Awww! Thank you so much! We really appreciate it and look forward to having you back soon. -Amy
This was our first opportunity to dine out since quarantine and it was worth the wait! Founding Farmers has done a superb job of planning and executing a top notch dining experience and meal during this disconcerting time. the food was outstanding, the server was meticulous about safety and service, and the patio seating was well planned to leave substantial space between tables.
WOW! Thank you for sharing this with us. It is really appreciated, and we are thrilled you stopped by. :) -Amy
Amazing food, outdoor seating was great, service was outstanding!
Wonderful dinner outside. The service was wonderful and the servers followed all social distancing protocols. The food was delicious as well.
Many thanks for sharing this with us! We appreciate it so much and look forward to your return. :) -Amy
It was so nice to be able to enjoy a wonderful meal outside. They took every precaution and had all of the tables spread out. Our server was very polite and personable. Food was fantastic!
Hooray! It was also SUPER nice to have you join us and thank you! :) -Amy
Just brunch. The waiter was awesome. He acknowledged they were behind and a bit understaffed for the day. This did not prevent him from providing great service
Friendly staff and good food.
One waffle was burnt, other waffle was perfect. Biscuits under-cooked, donuts were excellent. Outside patio was amazing for the late spring day and service was awesome. Consistency in food preparation would've resulted in 5 stars.
Hi DarrellK: Thank you for your review, and I am real sorry to read the disappointments with the food preparation during your visit. :( I would love the chance to follow up and make this right! I will send you a PM with my email address. -Amy
I was so grateful it was open!! Exceptional job by all!
Amazing food and service! Great outdoor area so they’re open during the pandemic.
Very well done. All seats we're shaded. Light breeze. It was perfect.
Sounds amazing! :) We appreciate your visit and already look forward to having you back soon. -Amy
Great food! Great Staff! We appreciated the opportunity to return to civilization with Founding Farmers.
Many thanks for your AWESOME 5-STAR review! :D We appreciate you visiting us during our re-opening weekend, and we already look forward to having you back in the future. -Amy
Made a reservation for outside seating. Was seated at a table in direct sunlight with no shade and left waiting for 10 minutes with no attention from any staff. Left before we could even order drinks.
Wonderful!! Thanks for opening!
Thank you! We appreciate it! -Amy
The restaurant had our table all ready for us outside on the patio. The food was outstanding as always. I'd like to thank our server Kayla for her great service. Highly recommend.
Thank you for your wonderful review, and we hope to have you back soon! :) -Amy
We were there the first night after Re-opening with new social distancing restrictions in place. They are still figuring out how to efficiently work with their new processes and spread-out outdoor setup, but we felt safe and the food was great. Our server was kind and everyone was apologetic about any minor wait we had. It was wonderful to be able to actually go out for an anniversary dinner date! Note: reservations are required.
It was equally as wonderful to have you & your SO join us to celebrate your Anniversary! :) Thank you so much and stay well! -Amy
First night to eat out since the Pandemic! Woohoo! We couldn't have been happier to be with our Founding Farmers Reston family! Still working out the kinks with the new rules and way of doing things, it all seemed great to us - we were thrilled to be there and to dine outside at our favorite restaurant. We really miss sitting at the bar and talking with our favorite bartenders, but until we're able to do that again, we'll continue to patronize the restaurant and eat/drink outside. Thank you for a great night out!!
Aww! We are thrilled we were your go-to for the "first night out". :) Thank you so much for joining us! -Amy
Went the first night they reopened for outside dining. The restaurant handles social distancing very well. We will be back.
Hooray!! Thank you so much and we look forward to your next visit. :) -Amy
Decent food and excellent service. Drinks are top notch.
Great place for a date night or family get together! Has a number of kids friendly options but wish they had a specific kid's menu.
Consistently good food and good service.
We went to celebrate a friend being back from the peace corps. it was in the midst of covid 19 social distancing so the place was empty despite being a friday night. amazing drinks at the bar that weren’t too sweet and great food. we love this place!

We weren't thinking when we decided to eat out during this flu outbreak, but many others apparently weren't, either. Pretty busy. My wife had a sort of mash up of fried chicken, ribs, and brisket, but I think she most wanted the cheddar pimento biscuits. I had the steak frites, which was made with tenderloin that was pretty exceptional. Usually, it has less flavor than texture. The Manhattans were very good, too, if pricey ($17). M had a What About Bob? which was ambitious if a bit spicey.
Food is outstanding and the service folks are friendly. The only issue is a big one, which affected the score: the time to get your food is excessive, especially for lunch. If you’re in a rush for lunch, you should probably look elsewhere.

Place is really nice and convenient. Came for my wife’s birthday and it was memorable
Hi RyanV: Thank you so much! We appreciate you celebrating your wife's special day with us, and hope to welcome you both back again sometime soon! :) -Amy
Alba was attentive and excellent. The food was second to none and the atmosphere was warm and inviting
First time and food was disappointing. Mussels overloaded with pepper. Prime rib tough. Paid extra fir bread which not worth it.
Hi pauls: Thank you for your feedback and I am real sorry a majority of your meal fell short in one way or another. :( I would love the chance to follow up and hopefully turn around the poor taste you left with this time. That said, I will send you a PM with my email address to continue this conversation. -Amy
Great food and service. Will definitely come back.
Nothing out of the ordinary. Our server was ok and the food was sort of salty. However the dessert was really good
