    The buffet is great with lots of food choices. The only thing that's problematic is the noise level. But overall, it's a good price and good value. And they validate parking which helps too. I've eaten here several times and will continue to do so.

    Our waiter was very nice but he was slow getting to us, slow with delivering the drinks and never came back to ask how our meal was until we were almost finished. We wanted salt and pepper which is not kept on the table. I also asked for Parmesan cheese for my pasta, and it was a very large grate and would not melt on my now cold pasta.

    Order was incorrect and we were presented with the wrong bill. Server was more concerned with presenting that bill to another table and adjusting for them than for getting us the correct bill. Server also had to come back twice to get us utensils (spoon for soup and steak knife for steak frites). We came on the recommendation of a friend but probably won't return. That being said, the pastrami melt and the burger were good.

    Awful brunch buffet. Everything is bland or overly salty. Bad service even though all they have to do during a buffet is bring water by. Don't know why this place is so popular. The fact that they validate parking is the only redeeming feature.

    This restaurant is exceptional. We had a few snafus with service last night - nothing major - but otherwise all went well. I went for a lighter dish - tomato soup and grilled cheese - and it was excellent. My dinner companion went with a smaller ahi tuna salad that was nice. Recommend this location for a nice dinner but the noise level makes it difficult for business meetings.

    Table server was great, food delicious. But we had to wait an hour to be seated even though we had reservations. We waited in bar and watched many guests seated after we arrived. After 30 mins of this , I rechecked in and were told we were next. Watched again from bar as 3 more parties of 4 were seated. Went again to hostess who had no clue why they skipped us again. Asked for the manager as ANOTHER party of 4 were seated. This is now an hour after our reservation time. Manager came and we were seated quickly. She comped our bar drinks and sent us home with some treats but it still was a crappy situation. As mentioned, food server was very competent and service fine after we were seated.

    Food is very good and server was nice and working hard but the restaurant was so understaffed we were there one hour before getting our drinks and then two of the meals when they finally came out were cold. Particularly considering the prices it was a disappointing experience even though as always it’s a great menu and very good food.

    Brunch was not up to Founding Farmer's standards. The ham eggs benedict was sub par - english muffin not cooked, sliced ham with little taste. We were very disappointed compared to other times we have been to Founding Farmers. The eggs with spinach and mushrooms on the other hand was good, albeit a bit runny.

    I love Founding Farmers brunch. I’ve been so many times I lost count. I enjoy the one in Tysons mostly. I was sad that the no longer served the bacon and now have regular strips of bacon. Also they now serve ice cream. That was a nice addition. The price is very affordable compared to most brunches. This is my go to brunch spot when family are in town.

    I have supported Founding Farmers with my business for many years. Last night, I was not happy with the ambiance. Me and my guests were not sat at a lovely table, in a nice location where we felt special. When making the reservation, I included a note that this was for a special occasion, my daughter's 13th birthday. I planned to visit with two of my dearest friends, who traveled from out of town to celebrate my daughter's special day, becoming a teenager. I also called the restaurant the day of to ask for one of your finer tables in a nice location because the dinner was for a special occasion. The hostess said she "saw the note." Upon arrival, we were sat in a snug/tight booth in the bar area. Even with a large bouquet of flowers in tow, and gifts, and our coats, we were led to a crammed booth with little space in the bar. I sat with my coat, purse and the bouquet in my lap because there was no room to put them anywhere else. The two different servers helping us were rushed, but friendly. I tipped them 20%. This was not the speed I was expecting or looking for. In the end, I spent $250 to sit in your restaurant bar. And while I smiled through it for the people I care about, I am disappointed that this is how my request was received and handled by Founding Farmers.

    Everything was great except for parking. My ticket was validated, but I only received 95 cents off. I paid $3. My friend had free parking … weird

    Didn't realize weekends and holidays are buffet-only until 2 pm. Crowded elbow-to-elbow. Despite having a reservation and arriving on time, waited 25 minutes to be seated. Server was attentive. Buffet $33 + $5 coffee + tax + tip = $50. I left hungry because picked-over buffet items were so unappetizing. May try again, but never on 'buffet day'. (They did validate 2 hours of parking.)

    We made a request regarding a birthday and had 530 reservations. I will acknowledge that the birthday guest arrived about 15 minutes late. However, for us not to have even had the appetizers cleared from the table by 645 was kind of unacceptable. Additionally, we had to request silverware from our server after the food was dropped off; one of our guests never got any water; and finally, as we had somewhere to be at seven for a performance ( in a venue a 5 minute drive away), we ended up having to have our entrées boxed up without even tasting them and skipped dessert altogether, which was the whole point of the birthday dinner. Seemed like the night got off to a rocky start for the kitchen and staff. Finally, the drink service, from time of order to delivery at the table, was so slow that we decided to forego additional rounds as there was no point in waiting another 20 minutes for them. Much less impressive than I had been led to expect.

    When I saw that we were running behind for our reservation, I tried to update our reservation, but OpenTable gave me the message that there was a technical issue. When we arrived, it was at the end of our 15-minute grace period- the 15th minute. The hostess displayed poor communication skills and would not tell us whether she had given our reservation away or not. She only told us that she had checked us in and gave us zero information on how long we would have to wait. Waiting for a few minutes was not a problem, but not knowing how long we would have to wait was annoying. We patiently waited, however, we prefer clear communication in order to feel welcome upon arriving at a restaurant. In contrast, our server was excellent at her job and the food we ordered was delicious. The hostess's welcoming skills require improvement. We probably won't rush back to this restaurant.

    We usually come every year but the food this year wasn’t it. Our waitress rarely checked on us and once the one carafe of water was gone we were without drinks for the rest of the meal. Most of the menu items were already sold out by 7pm from the signature selection and the crab cakes had no crab. Pretty disappointed this time.
