Great meal! Loved the homemade donuts and ice cream!
The manager this evening--Melissa--made sure everyone's needs were met and was cheerful and bubbbbly :-)
Solid experience. Service and food were terrific.
Always a great place for a business meeting for breakfast or lunch. I love breakfast there. Services was attentive but did not hover. A mainstay place for me in DC.
Didn’t realize that on holidays they do a price-fixed brunch so that was a little disappointing. Meal was still good just very expensive.
This is a nice place to eat, but I wasn’t super impressed with the brunch buffet. It’s a good deal if you want a lot of food and a lot of choice, but nothing blew me away in terms of taste/quality.
I am a Veteran who attended their special Brunch, thank you Farmers and Distillers. It was very good. I lived in Las Vegas for a while, and their brunch was far better than the best casino brunch, smaller, but better. The ambiance was upbeat and the restaurant, along with the staff, was neat and very clean. Thank you for giving me and my friend a wonderful morning.
The food is amazing! There's a great variety in the options that are offered. Everything was fresh and delicious.
As stated everything was excellent, the food, the drinks, the service. The only issue is that we had a group of 8 and we were seated in the very back at two tables which at best should have only seated 6. Because it was so crowded and we had a reservation we didn't ask to be moved.
food was good but waitress was not attentive, while it is mainly self service, we never saw the "passed items" and when we asked for coffee refills, they took a long time
I like the Founding Farmers restaurant group in general but Farmers and Distillers has quickly become one of my favorite places to go to specifically for brunch. The food is consistently good. The service is great and the vibe is cool.
So fun! Yummy food! Will be back.
Typically we have a great experience at F it made dinner conversation a challenge
We had a celebratory dinner here and it was amazing. The atmosphere is very busy and loud but we didn’t mind. The food was AMAZING. I had the chicken fried steak and donut and it was better than my southern hometown’s. My partner had the filet which was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend!
This place had a great reputation and looked fantastic. Unfortunately, the service and food didn't even approach levels of enjoyment. I ordered the Prime Rib medium rare. My expectation is that it should semi-easily pull apart. The steak was tough and moderately overcooked. My accompanying loaded baked potato was undercooked, hard, and luke warm. One bright spot were the doughnuts. Fresh from the oven and warm at the table. Very good. I'd go back for them, but nothing else.
Great for brunch! Lots of options!
Service was quite poor & inattentive. Food was good, but not exceptional especially at the premium prices. The other Farmer restaurants were much better.
My family took me to Farmers and Distillers for my birthday brunch. We had great food, and the service was absolutely terrific. Would go back again any time. WILL go back again!
Saturday Buffet brunch, good food well prepared . A lot of people, staff seemed to struggle to keep up. Slow to replenish buffet items, long wait for waitress to respond to simple requests (I needed a spoon). Would return but likely to go early to beat the Sat crowd.
Loved everything we ordered—nothing bad on the menu!
Pastrami hash was amazing and wait staff was terrific
I was little disappointed after hearing so much about the Farmer's franchise. We sat at the bar at 8p, left just before 10, & it was crazy busy the whole time! If you like a more is more, craft & artisinal style cocktails, locavore food, hip(ster) scene, this place is great. If you're looking for something intimate, understated, this might not be your spot.
The cocktails are interesting to innovative but we found ours (the the gin-based Constitution & the rye & amaro based How Jefferson Woulda Liked It) too sweet & too tart respectively. Maybe we choose from the wrong side of the menu, but it seemed like these were a gin & whiskey like cocktail respectively for people who actually don't enjoy either. I did watch our bartender make a super looking pina colada, painstakingly spoonig coconut cream into the blender for an icy blended version of the drink.
We just wanted something light so we split the fried chicken & donut. It was supposed to be a maple glazed donut but we either got vanilla or the maple is aspirational. Excellent fluffy yeast donut! The plate came with two frenched chicken breasts, mac n cheese, roasted broccolini, and on the side a mildly spicy sauce & white gravy/bechamel sauce. The pasta in the mac n cheese was fresh made pasta & the cheese sauce was subtle & almost elegant. The broccolini were perfectly roasted. The fried chicken: OMG, the meat was so moist & flavorful!! But someone REALLY got carried away with the salt on the chicken & broccolini. We looked at what others ordered, & I'll say this: there's a lot of variety in the menu,
& the portions are generous. So we'll be back. There's a lot more to try.
Hands down our best dinner in DC! Amazing in-house spirits selection, service staff, and unbelievable seafood and steak! As North Dakotans, we can’t wait to come back to try out the other sister restaurants.
All-around positive experience! The incredible menu made it difficult to decide what to order. Everyone in our party was delighted with their food. The service was friendly. I’ll eat there when I’m in the area again.
Family visit. They may have been a bit overbooked (to be expected) and maybe understaffed. Even though initially we had to wait a bit for the first beverage order, our server, Daniel, was fantastic and made the experience a good
one. Thank you!
I was able to snag a last minute reservation before a show at the Sixth and I. The hosts were friendly, and seated us right away. Our server was very nice and offered to go over the menu with us. Our food was delicious. My fiancé chose the crab cakes, and I had the cioppino, which was buttery and spicy, and perfect for a cool fall evening. The cocktails were also very good; however, my only complaint is that our drinks took a very long time to come to the table. We ordered 2 of their signature cocktails, and we were already halfway through our appetizer before they arrived. Then we ordered 2 craft beers before our main courses were brought out, and those didn’t make it to the table until we were both done eating. This was not at all our servers fault, she was extremely attentive, and kept checking back to see if the drinks were ready. It seemed like the bartenders were way more interested in servicing bar guests and people who were waiting for tables, than making drinks for people who were seated at tables. Definitely need to have designated service bartenders on hand for weekends, especially for a place that emphasizes handcrafted cocktails. We weren’t driving, and probably would have ordered another round or two (and added $40 to our check) if it hadn’t taken half an hour to be served each round. Overall, we would definitely go again, just hoping for quicker drink service next time.
A perfectly fine dinner. Caccio de Pepe was outstanding! Our server was very attentive and nice. Would go back again
Chicken noddle soup was cold. Don’t order the last cumin in dish, noddles are nasty. Non digestible blobs of wheat.
super fun menu. comfort foods pasta they have it all. I had the riblets, yummy. My friend had the sweet potato pasta. We both loved our entrees. They also have house made sodas and creative cocktails.
The service was phenomenal and the menu is massive. Come here for great comfort food and excellent drinks! Also, this place is perfect for larger groups.
Abbey was one of the best servers living on planet Earth! (And her glasses are cool!)
I’ve been to all of the”Founding Farmers” restaurants and have really loved my experiences, until I came here. The dumplings and the ravioli were awful. First of all the Asian dumplings appetizer is exactly the same thing as the ravioli entree.( just different sauce ) and they were rock hard, as if they had been freezer burnt. The server was friendly but friendly only goes so far, i asked for 2 lattes to go and waited for 20 minutes after we were finished until I finally went up to the bakery to pick up my own coffee. No big deal but when you’re paying $120 for a two person meal and it doesn’t even taste that good, you better be on your Ps and Qs. Not impressed sadly
By far our favorite restaurant in DC! This is a must go to. Our 2 children loved it as well. All I can say is AMAZING!!! And I can’t wait to buy the cookbook.
Great for those who need a qid
Restaurant was busy so we never saw our waiter, the manager did take care of us but food was slow coming out and the handcrafted cocktail (that cost $35) was not good. Honestly thought they probably forgot to put the alcohol in the beverage. While the food was good, it took a long time, probably because the restaurant was overbooked and understaffed. Hoping this place can provide better service because it has a lot of potential.
Server was not good. We were seated for over 15 mins before we had to find manager. It was better after I talked to the manager!
Terrible service, 20 min from when seated to seeing a server, food at brunch is mediocre at best, we all left with tummy aches after, impossible to flag down a server/waiter for passed foods, difficult to get forks and knives after having plates removed. such a disappointing experience
Brunch and service excellent Coffee very good.
Food was disappointing . There was no pancakes and bacon. Food choices were limited
Amazing food and great quality for the price. When I’m back in DC, this place will be on my brunch schedule!
