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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

Nothing out of the ordinary. Our server was ok and the food was sort of salty. However the dessert was really good
