Drinks for a party of four did not all come out at the same time. Appetizers came out one minute before dinner was served. Food was overcooked in that the prime rib and tuna steak was requested medium but came out well done. Despite the restaurant being pretty empty, the staffed seemed to be in a rush to get us out of there.

Restaurants that take reservations for brunch and then make you wait for 20 minutes annoy me. Especially when they then sit you at a table that is dirty. Used to love this place for family weekend brunch but it has not aged well. Not worth steep price in my view.

Our visit was a Sunday Brunch - we haven't been in several years and the experience was so much less than we expected. I understand COVID makes a difference but last time we came the food selection was by far better. A lot of the food was cold. Our server was good - it was very crowded.
I think we are done with brunch and will try lunch or dinner next time.

Phenomenal brunch buffet to celebrate my birthday. Everything was super fresh and tasty and was already planning a return visit due to overall yumminess and massive variety. Favorites were crab dip, deviled eggs, salad varieties, fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls, and ice cream banana foster.

Food is always good here. Staff appear happy & content. ambience is great for everything except the noise. it is loud, unpleasantly loud. Euphemistaclly "energetic" but a lot of times "energetic" means unpleasantly loud. Open table should add another category or level for noise level being unpleasant.

The service tonight was pretty slow; the server was pleasant, but pretty apathetic and not very attentive. Our table was full of dirty dishes and empty glasses. The ceviche was not good and my son was not very fond of the lobster ravioli. Not our typical experience of this restaurant chain. I think the Park Potomac location is much better.

I am also sorry the food ordered failed to fit the bill, and all in all, you were disappointed with your experience. It is sad to say we failed at our first impression, and I'd love the chance to turn this around! Please email me: hospitality@frg.farm with a copy of your review, date dined and location. -Jessica

Only OK.

Butternut ravioli was tasteless and tough. Two of us ordered it and, after a couple of bites, neither person could finish it.

For a restaurant claiming to be farm to table, the lack of numerous vegetables/vegetable plate was strange.

Biscuits tasted like a boxed mix. “Fluffy” not in the preparer’s skill set.
