The food was okay. They sent out appetizers to the wrong table. I honestly think because it was Mother’s Day and busy, that that was the issue. Long story short our orders were also messed up so the night manager Caleb took care of the tab. Which was outstanding customer service to me. I had been there for my bday in January and my experience was great. We all make mistakes and they held up in their end. I would go back again!!
Food is always great! The manager Caleb is awesome! He was constantly checking on us and made sure we had the best experience! Was a great end to a wonderful Mother's Day!
Thanks to the manager we were taken care of in a timely manner. He stepped in and I appreciated that
Service was horrible, the waiter literally kept passing our table before taking our order.
The food was not flavorful.
Nice decor and excellent waiter. However, I was not impressed with the food. It was good, but just not like “wow”!
Buffett during pandemic is not the best but FF did good job adapting and incorporating more table service. Food was very good and service was outstanding.
We always come to Founding Farmers when we visit the area (at least monthly). We love your restaurant! The food was all freshly prepared. Our server was very friendly but not very attentive on this visit.
Brunch was excellent with a large variety of quality protein choices and a ton of treats as well. The hand carved brisket, slab bacon and salmon were favorites, along with their version of French Toast. Service was very good. Price is pretty high but a good option for a special occasion splurge.
Great food, decent prices. For dinner, we were seated right at our reservation with no wait. Be prepared though at brunch times on weekends for them to be running quite behind. Nice that they validate parking too, or if preferred, it's very walk-able from the Metro.
Reservations recommended... we were quickly seated. Location has plenty of room.. is not cramped or crowded. Has circular booths that look like fun for 4-6 people. We were in a nice booth for 2. Love the breads... in particular the corn bread in a skillet and the Avocado Toast was exceptional as well. Really liked the desserts... bread pudding is our favorite. Highly recommend... you will not be sorry.
Brought my mom here for her first brunch experience for Mother’s Day and she truly enjoyed the food.
My family really enjoyed the brunch. It was very Covid friendly.
Awesome! Thank you for sharing this with us and we hope to have you & your family back soon! :) -Amy
Great service and food! Our server was excellent! The food was delicious as always!
Great server and meal. Food came out quickly with nice presentation and portion sizes.
Great staff and great food!
Great food, excellent prices. Deserts are very good, get the Jefferson doughnuts.
A go-to pick to meet up with friends. The service was on the slower side and not very attentive. Our burgers were delicious, but the fries weren't hot/warm. The carrot cake was yummy as always. The coffee ice cream in the hot fudge sundae was great, but the "hot fudge" didn't really seem like hot fudge... it would be a lot better if it were hot and thick and rich (this was more like Hershey's syrup). Overall, a decent lunch experience, but I expect more from Founding Farmers.
We love Founding but the 2 spinach salsa we had in Tysoon’s
was terrible. The onions were so greasy & the fried ones
we’re inedible . The salad was over dressed
Very disappointed. P
Thank you for your feedback and I am very sorry the 2 spinach salads ordered were deemed "terrible". :( This is disappointing to hear, and I would appreciate the chance to turn around your dissatisfaction with these dishes. This said, please email me: Amy@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review, date dined & location. -Amy
The experience lived up to the theme of traditional yet innovative, farm-to-table food offerings. I had a goat-burger - not a burger made out of goat meat, but rather a burger with goat cheese (as I had to correct myself when I announced my meal to my wife later). Perfectly medium rare, and delicious.
This is one of our favorite brunch places and we were excited about this first time back since the pandemic shut down everything. Sadly there were several service misses. I included a special request in our reservation for a high chair but there was none at our table and we had to ask for one, even though we clearly had a toddler in our arms. When we asked for menus, we were told to use our phones to scan the QR code on a small piece of paper on the table which had the cocktails menu. I assumed this is a safety measure, but everyone is picking up the same piece of paper? And we had to pull out our phones after putting them away to enjoy a nice meal together. Patrons around us also asked for menus since there is no information provided in advance. Scrolling through the menu on your phone is not as much fun as looking over a menu together and calling out items that sound delicious. Perhaps this digital method could be improved by adding pop up pictures of the items when you click on them. There were no offers to refill our coffee and tea until we finally asked for refills late in the meal. And we were not offered again anytime during the rest of the meal. This place features their coffee but enjoying it takes effort. Our food was brought to the table, we ate, and then the bill was placed on the table. The food was good, but at no point did anyone check on us or ask if we enjoyed the meal, etc. There were several chairs and booths that showed rips and tears. Overall there was a feeling of tired and sad rather than happiness and excitement about welcoming customers back. I understand we need to be patient since restaurants still are hurting and recovering. We have family and close friends in the industry and support them in any way we can. We will return but this visit was a disappointment.
Hi UVAfoodie: Thank you for your review and I am so sorry this experience missed the mark. :( Our team is equally let down for the areas of your visit that failed to impress, and I would appreciate the chance to turn this around! This said, please email me: Amy@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review, date dined & location. -Amy
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.
Happy hour menu was a good starter and our server was excellent. Wonderful from start to finish.
It has gone downhill in the service department compared to earlier
Oh no! I am super sorry the service failed to measure up and we sadly dropped the ball this time. :( I would appreciate the chance to make this right and ask you to please email me: Amy@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review, date dined & location. Thank you and I look forward to continuing this conversation! -Amy
Good for business lunches and personal outings.
I’m handicapped and was able to reserve a place by the door. Very helpful!!!
Thank you so much, Ilene! We are thrilled you enjoyed your visit and hope to have you back soon! -Amy
Our server was fantastic. The service was indeed optimal on this visit. We had items brought to our table, coffee and tea refilled continuously, and despite a social distancing with masks on to access the buffet tables, the line moved quickly and there was a great assortment for brunch. I fell in love with the vegetarian lasagna on this visit. Soooo good.
Last minute reservation to end the night. Great food, good drinks, top notch service!
