The food was great and the staff was friendly. The service was a little slow at the time but did not negatively impact the overall night. I was recommended this place and visit again in the future.

My son was pleasantly surprised how tasty his dish was. I believe he said it was a steak or filet.

Very fresh ingredients, interesting menu. Some dishes are excellent, especially appetizers, but vegetarian choices - not so much. Excellent service. When restaurant is full, a bit noisy. Overall - great experience, will come again.

We enjoyed our time. The waiter was very helpful. It was so awesome that your staff said Happy Birthday to my hubby when he came in.

It was a great evening. I mentioned it was my boyfriend's birthday on my reservation. And the hostess asked when we walked in, who's birthday was it. But that was the last we heard of it. Lol. I thought they'd offer a dessert or something. Aside from that, it was a great time.

My go to breakfast spot in Tysons corner. They have taken the simple breakfast staple of bacon and eggs and turned it into a gourmet experience. Always served on a hot plate add cooked to order. Friendly staff head hard to not bump into someone I know. It’s not a secret, it has a great reputation.

Came for brunch and it did not disappoint! The food was amazing and I would say comparable for the price (29 per person). Our waiter was amazing and very nice. I would definitely suggest the weekend brunch!

Excellent service, food and atmosphere. Highly recommend this special restaurant and its signature dish: Chicken with Jefferson Donut. We also had the Brie appetizer and Creek Brûlée cheesecake -- all delicious!

Service was inconsistent; we had to often wait several minutes to have any waitstaff come to the table. Server did not check on food quality. Some food was hot, while other orders were not hot at all. There are extremely few vegan items on the menu. Lastly, prices were slightly high for what was received.

Tables were well set apart which made our group feel comfortable. Food was fresh, flavorful and well presented. service a bit slow, however, we were talking a lot so that may have been it. server was super polite. This was my first time dining here and I would definitely come back I had the Tuna poke salad- really good!

This was the first restaurant I went to last summer when the restrictions were lifted. I love this restaurant- they have the best Brunch in town, but the whole menu is amazing.

I can't wait to take my parents here when they come to town.

We were visiting from out of town and called the restaurant to reserve a table for our large group of 14. We were told that it wasn’t possible for the time we wanted. We decided to use open table and book 3 separate tables, adding a note asking to be seated close to each other if possible. When we arrived the hostess did everything she could to get us seated quickly and together. To our surprise, she was able to get us all together at one table! We were extremely excited. Our server did a great job of managing our large group. However, when the food arrived, one person from our group’s food was cold. They had no problem warming it up but it took forever and by the time it was ready, everyone else was finished. The food overall was delicious. Some mixed drinks were better than others. The “Paloma” that one of us had, was very watered down and didn’t taste like it even had alcohol in it. We did have a good amount of children with us, and they were able to easily accommodate their needs. One thing that was very surprising to learn when the check came was that they charge everyone a “Covid fee”. This was an additional $20 added to our tab that honestly was quite ridiculous. That charge, along with the $12 charge to park in the designated garage for this restaurant, was enough to make us skip this location in the future. Overall, the food and service was good, but overpriced for what we got. It also would have been nice for them to comp the cold plate of food, but we still were charged.

I had previously only dined at Founding Farmers for dinner. So coming in for brunch and having to be so, so delicious was a treat! Bring the stretchy pants, folks. You’re going to want to go up to the buffet tables several times. Must tries: cinnamon buns, crab dip, and salmon.

Comparing our brunch buffet experiences per and post COVID, it’s better now. The wait staff brings certain items to the table straight from the kitchen and the buffet has servers. Very safe and the food was delicious as always. A wonderful experience.
