Amazing food. Amazing atmosphere.
I love this restaurant. The food is delicious and always reliable. I will return.
While not fine dining, the food at Founding Farmers of Tysons is quite good. My southern fried chicken was a little dry, but my dining partners reported their burger and meat loaf were excellent. Service is wonderful, including good natured banter from the hostess as she seated us. The place was packed, but we never felt neglected, nor did it take too long for our orders to arrive. Everyone around us appeared to be having a good time, which added to the overall enjoyment. We'll go other places when we want a high-end (and much more expensive) dining experience, but we will definitely return to FF/Tysons when we want good food in pleasant surroundings.
Food was excellent! It was a bit loud though. We had the steak frites and starters were the Brie, cornbread, and crab dip. Cornbread is a must!!! Recommend the fish & chips as well
While the food is always fantastic, the getting seated and service experiences are not professional or efficient.
I am always amazed at how crowded, noisy, and backed up the enterance is when there are so many open tables in the restaurant. Either get more help at the hostess stand or have the waiters or managers seat people during busy times.
While the service was not bad, it could have been more attentive. The waiter needs to be able to intuit that when the knife and fork are on the plates at 5 o'clock, his patrons are done with their meal. Pay closer attention to what's going on at their tables, and if you're not sure, ask
I'll probably come back for the great food, but will contiue to complain about the front of the house until you get it right.
The food was phenomenal and the service was outstanding. Our server took great care to ensure everything was great and we were all enjoying our dinner. It was very busy, so reservations are recommended.
Our waiter was as professional and knowledgeable as could be they made sure we were happy and our needs were taken care of. The food was impeccable and our drinks were great, from our appetizer to our dessert everything was perfect. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
The burgers are AMAZING
Brunch buffet food is mediocre but the service was great!
We had a reservation and arrived early and even with the crowded wauyubg sres they sat us 20 minutes early.
The food at the Founding Farmers location in DC is 100 times better.
Host that sat us seemed less than enthusiastic to be working there. When asked if we could sit in the multiple open booths, we were told no because we were two people. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Food was ok, seemed to have gone down in quality from when it first started. MANY of the dishes were COLD. Overall ambiance is something to be desired. Tables sit on top of each other and its really loud.
We enjoy Founding Farmers and all of their restaurants. The food is good, drinks are better, and dessert are the best! Banana Cream Pie..OMG!! Good atmosphere.
Our waiter was pleasant but too busy. Took a long time to get drinks. Appetizers came before them actually. Food was ok. But, it's really overpriced for what you get. Kettle corn was charred. There was no chicken in the pot pie. One of us ordered the fish of the day and asked for a double portion of greens instead of potatoes. Got no potatoes but only a couple of ounces of greens. I keep wanting to like this place so I keep coming back. I think I'm finished trying.
Food was excellent and tasty, service great, ambiance fantastic-this would be a place where I can be proud to take an out-of-towner to. The only thing is some tables are set up way too close to the next one so privacy in conversation is zero and my husband and I had to scream so that we can hear each other coz it's noisy. But, I still give them 5 stars and would definitely go back.
Arrived 20 min early for 6:15 reservation but due to communication mixup with hostess ended up being sat after reservation time and only because asked why we weren’t being seated when 6:20 rolled around. Manager apologized and comped some biscuits. Nice. Then we waited for almost 30 minutes to order drinks - waiter dropped off the free biscuits and water and came back 25 minutes later...Ribeye and spicy chicken were tasty as usual. Fried shrimp as well. Disappointed there are no longer flights of local beer. Service really needs to improve. Will give one more shot.
First time ever at a founding Farmers. Awesome experience!
Overall, food was excellent. Check in went smoothly. They seated us almost exactly at the time of our reservation. The manager greeted us and took our appetizer order. From that point on the service was sub par. It took nearly 30 minutes to get our first order of drinks. There were very few check ins for refills . For desert we ordered 6 different cookies. Instead of bringing 6 different cookies the waitress brought us 3 cookies with two of each. We didn’t want that many as we wanted the specific cookies we ordered. Overall, I really like their lunch menu but the noise and service at dinner were not worth the price. With so many other restaurants competing for my dining dollars in the area, I would go somewhere else where they will at least be attentive.
Excellent appetizers, but the kitchen really let us down with our entrees, and while it's understandable that the bar is slammed, it really shouldn't take 30(ish) minutes to get a drink.
Two of our four entrees were cold when arrived (steak frites), fried chicken was obviously reheated (skin wasn't crispy, saturated with grease, etc), sides french fries wilted and soggy. Very disappointing, especially given the price point, and how good past service has been.
On the bright side, our waitress was excellent, and the hostess magnificent.
Went to brunch, food was mediocre and everything was cold.
Second time coming here and it was again....AMAZING! We loved the food and our waitress. High five and hugs to all of the staff. We love the light fixtures and mural! #foodie #farmfresh #sticktoyourrubs #goodfood #wewillbeback
This place was great! The chicken and ham were freshly prepared and super tasty! Our server was attentive and just wonderful - Thanks Elena!!
Nice place to meet up with friends and enjoy good food. Restaurant is pretty noisy.
We had a great Holiday Party, the servers were flexible with our White Elephant exchange, taking up a huge area! Food was great! Valet is great but it’s a close parking lot! Would definitely recommend!
The food and service were excellent, as usual.
Really good food
Went for a business dinner. Food and service just ok. Seemed overpriced. Place didn’t seem any more special than any other suburban chain restaurant. Don’t understand the attraction.
Food and service outstanding. Despite a reservation, had to wait over 20 minutes for a table.
I really enjoy this restaurant. It's a nice restaurant that reminds me of that kind of place you can take your spouse and your boss equally as well. I never am disappointed and now they sell the Impossible Burger, so vegetarian burger lovers have something to eat that isn't pea or mushroom based!
The menu looked enticing. Unfortunately the food, when it came, was cold.
My coffee was lukewarm and I didn’t receive my creamer per my initial request. The server didn’t come back to take our remaining drink order until over 10 minutes even though it was not very busy in the morning. Server wasn’t very pleasant.
I had a really good fish special with Provencale sauce and a great cocktail - delicious!
Service was poor. Never came around to check in.
Our group of 7 really went crazy - corn bread, biscuits, deviled eggs, farmers’ salad, pasta, fish.... great food and tasty strawberry soda! Too loud and at times deafening to point of downright annoying. This, and several confusions from bill tabulation errors (plural) are reasons for less then perfect score. Real standouts: my husband ordered apple pie - got 1/4 pie and was one of best slices of apple pie he has ever had - didn’t try but it looked spectacular including ribbon of caramel garnish. Another standout was pork porchetta with cannelloni beans, grilled veggies and mashed-potatoes looked amazing - nice deep sear on meat and great portions. My lobster mac n cheese was tasty but not amazing- great portion and full lobster tail but less then ideal mac n cheese with slightly over cooked pasta but slightly under cheesed under sauced
So glad that we had reservations !! The food and service were both great. I loved that the steak salad came with a deviled egg.
Friends having brunch
It was our first time for brunch. Overall, the food was really good. There is a little traffic issue getting into the buffet room, as plates are only in one place and it's not at the start of of food, and checking in was a zoo. Other than the logistics, the food and service was fantastic!
Love this chain of restaurants. The food is always tasty and there are a lot of healthy choices. I have only gone for brunch with a small group as well as large. Great location.
Didn't find the omelette makers and meat carver's this time...my favorite is the shrimp and grits but the shrimps can be hard to find.
Overall it's a great place to have brunch with family and friends.
Husband’s birthday. It was great place for Sunday brunch. Food was good, service was good also.
