Food was very good, service was poor. Took a while for server to come to the table, bring water, drinks, etc. Also felt disorganized in taking drink and food orders and had difficulty providing recommendations. The menu was large and provided nice variety, but more than half of the items didn't have a description so you had no idea what the food was or what it came with.

Another excellent lunch with good company. My vodka mule cocktail was magnificently prepared with a great taste and balance to the beverage. The fish and chips was delightful, I was impressed by the tender fish and the coating after frying was extremely tasty. My son had an immense burger, colorfully served, that he loved. Our friend had a chicken pot pie and said it was superb. The coffee and lattes were just outstanding--big, rich, filling--and the glazed doughnuts were very good. We had a very friendly patient server named Kenya who was marvelous. Ambience was good, low noise level during our visit.

First time at this Founding Farmers Restaurant. Our experience was, by far, the best of all the ones we’ve visited.
Our server, Amelia, was charming, patient and helpful. Between her and the food it was a fabulous dinner. Outstanding. We look forward to returning to Farmers and Distillers.

The server was not very attentive. It could be that he had too many tables to manage.

Not sure if it was COVID, or what, but the brunch was really not good. Food was not replenished well and overall taste was definitely below what we expect from Farmer's group. We had done their brunch in Tysons years ago and everything from the presentation to the taste of everything on the menu was really outstanding. Yesterday seemed like chain food and with everyone touching the utensils, also gave me an uncomfortable feeling in our COVID era. Disappointing and super expensive for what they offered and the quality.

We went for lunch brunch. Service was nonexistent. But I think it was just our particular server as it seemed the other tables had attentive staff. The buffet though was the disappointment. Buffet didn’t stay stocked. Line was wrapped around the dining area and by the time you grabbed one thing and waited for the meat station the first thing grabbed was ice cold. Was so excited for this based on the menu and it definitely fell flat. I highly recommend Cuba libres brunch instead.
