    The food was below average. Very disappointed with the quality and dish presentation. We usually dine at the founding Famers in Reston. The food there is a better quality than the Tyson one

    good food, good service, delicious desserts. only issue was we had reserved a booth in the bar area through open table, and when we arrived no booths had been reserved for us so we did not sit where we had requested.

    We were eating an early dinner before a Wolf Trap concert. This was our first time, and I can definitely see us going back. Reservations were a breeze through Open Table. We were taken straight to our table, no waiting. The waitperson was a little slow to come to our table at first, but that was the only small issue we had at Founding Farmers. Our drinks came out quickly, she was back quickly to take our app order, then again monitoring the table and taking our main course order. She had good recommendations for the meals, convincing me to get something that I was uncertain about, and she was spot on - it was perfect. Wife had a great meal as well. The one complaint would be my son's ravioli and tomato sauce - the plate was definitely watery. Not sure if the ravioli weren't drained or the sauce was runny, but not a good presentation. However, he said he really liked the flavor of the dish, so no complaints there. Desert was a hit also, so an all around winner.

    They forgot to bring out or make the salad prior to the main courses. They didn’t ask to refill our water at any point. In adddition to that the check was dropped off without offering a dessert menu. They also need to write down the orders so as not to forget things like salad. They were very friendly and courteous and that helped

    Hi, Michael. I am terribly sorry that we overlooked your salad and did not offer to refill your water or give you options to choose for dessert. We are super appreciative of your patience with our team. I sincerely hope we get the opportunity to give you a better dining experience during your next visit with us. We look forward to having you stop by! -Najjah

    First time at this location and we loved the outdoor seating, perfect for 4. Food and service were excellent. Crab cake was a little over cooked, but still tasty. Risotto could have been a little more creamy, but the flavor was amazing. I will be back again!

    The food is always good at Founding Farmers. Whenever I have out of town guests, I try to take them to one of the restaurants. When family come to visit they always ask to go. This is the first time we tried the chips, dips, spreads, crisps appetizer. It was a lot of food. We like the dips except for the mustard one. The fried chicken was a huge serving. And we liked that the fries came in their own fry basket with the steak frites. The guava soda was the soda of the month. It was good - not too sweet and a bit tart.

    All the food was great, the shrimp and fried chicken were delicious, but the brisket was hard to chew. The desserts were amazing specially key lime pie and cheese cake. Popcorn were a little sticky. The ambiance was nice. My family and I were in an outdoor table, we had a good and relax time.

    Our food was just okay. On the pot roast, the vegetables weren’t done at all, but on the meatloaf, the outside was over done and too hard to eat. Our waiter was decent but he seemed almost irritated with us and our order, and didn’t check on us much.

    Check in host was rude. We were seating at our appointed reservation time despite the host. Waitress was outstanding and very friendly, but the restaurant was packed and service was slow due to demands on the kitchen. Once we did get our food, it was great. We will go back, but mabe not on a holiday weekend…

    I have usually enjoyed the food but yesterday it wasn’t up to it’s usual standard. The Arnold Palmer was weak and they were out of lemonade so I was stuck with the tea. It took a long time for the meal to come so it wasn’t really hot The menu selection is great and I like that they have vegan food. I will return because this is the first time my food wasn’t great.
