Our server was pleasant but not so very attentive. The menu as a lot of very good sounding food. What I got, goat-cheese ravioli with sweet potato sauce, topped with chicken breast, was excellent. But my husband has a condition that will not support anything from a mammal. No meat, butter, cheese, milk. There’s a note to that effect on our Open Table reservations. Often the server already knows. But all he could suggest was the fish of the day. It was nicely cooked….but perfectly plain, with roasted sweet potatoes and plain geeen beans. And it was listed as “market price” on the menu and turned out to be about 50% more than most other selections.
So: if you can eat anything you like, you’ll probably enjoy it. If you have dietary restrictions, perhaps not.
My first time back in 2 years. I have always loved this place, but was disappointed with the food this time. Also no hand sanitizer anywhere.
We are so sorry we failed at our first impression since you've been back and sadly, you left under-whelmed with your overall experience. This said, I would love to have a hand in turning this around and please email me: Hospitality@FRG.Farm with a copy of your review, date dined & location to connect further. -Kerry
Service was a bit slow, especially in the beginning, but the food came out fast. The prosciutto bread appetizer was amazing and steak frites were also good. The seasonal autumn vegetable side was very sweet - fine with me but did not seem very healthy.
The service recovery fee is a slap on the face. A person comes to dine and has to pay for the employees to take a covid test which is free. This takes away from the waitstaff tip. Embarrassing on so many levels.
I'd appreciate the chance to follow up and turn around the poor impression we left you with- please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your review, date dined + location. -Jessica
Good experience. The waiter was awesome along with the good.
So glad you everything! -Jessica
We had a brunch reservation and were seated promptly. The restaurant was really busy on a Sunday following Thanksgiving. Had a nice booth, not too close to other diners. The beignets were delicious! Coffee was really good. Bloody Mary was one of the best I’ve ever had! Service was good.
Everything was outstanding!!
Thank you so much for dining with us! -Jessica

Breakfast was delicious!
Thank you so much for your review! :) -Kerry
Had Saturday brunch and everything was absolutely delicious! The beignets are a must! We also had the goat cheese and beet hash, chicken and waffles and farmers breakfast. Highly recommend all three dishes.
The only downside is they don’t do the buffet like the other location does.
Very good food. Service was a bit rough, but it's Thanksgiving week, so we'll assume that's temporary. Great table for our party of 14!
Excellent food, good choice, everyone will find something : vegan, healthy, comfy, meaty, whatever. All.is.good. we stayed 3 nights in Washington and had dinner twice here. Très bonne adresse, des produits frais, bien cuisinés. Choix de plats roboratifs ou plus légers, des légumes, un vrai plaisir ! De bons vins également.
Awesome! Please come back soon! -Jessica
Food was amazing!!
The waffle and the steak are awesome! However, the service is terrible from the beginning after I checked in to the end of my lunch! I would not recommend lunch or dinner to anyone.
Thank you for your review and I am very sorry the service missed the mark this time. I'd appreciate the chance to follow up and turn around the poor impression we left you with. Please email me: email@example.com with a copy of your review, date dined & location. -Jessica
Great service, great food, and everyone was friendly and helpful
Thank you so much for dining with us! -Jessica
The Thanksgiving dinner was good, however we received our mains and desserts at the same time, and a few minutes we were given the bill. We had barely finished the mains when we were hassled to pay. It was a shame as we didn't have a chance to enjoy our meal as we felt like we were being rushed out. The food was good, however it was not very hot when we received it and as we were sat outside it got cold very quickly.

Oistandkng service with an outstanding meal!
Thank you so much for dining with us, Brett! We hope to see you soon! -Najjah :)
Had to wait for our table ( not long but… we did have a reservation) I thought the venue was overbooked and I felt rushed which was not what I was wanting on thanksgiving. I thought the food was excellent and I would give the restaurant another try … just not on a holiday.
Not good for Thanksgiving. Felt like they were rushing us to get in and out as many people as possible. Like factory Thanksgiving meal. Wait staff were not always available and it was not enjoyable. Drinks and pumpkin cheesecake were amazing, but dinner was average and not worth the cost.

Kim, the wait person, was outstanding. She was very attentive and made our selection of food arrive promptly.
Thank you so much for dining with us, Maria! Please stop by soon! -Najjah :)
Thanksgiving: great service, pretty good food. We did feel rushed though—courses came out before we were ready and there was no slowing them down. Definitely a mixed experience.
Founding Farmers never disappoints! Food is always good, and I prefer the DC location the most.
We are so thrilled to know that you enjoyed yourself! Please visit us again soon, Cornelius! -Najjah :)
We dined in a heated booth outside of the restaurant on Thanksgiving Day. We had turkey, fried chicken, sweet potatoes, roasted vegetables, stuffing, and choice of apple pie, pumpkin pie or pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. We really enjoyed the food, ambience and service. We were blessed with mild sunny weather. I rate it a 5 out of 5.
Thank you so much! Look forward to seeing you again soon! -Jessica
Thanksgiving with friend.
Great Thanksgiving meal. Our server, Kim, was amazing! She really made it a great experience. Good food, great choices. Would definitely go again.
Thank you so much for dining with us and celebrating Thanksgiving with the team! I will be sure to pass the amazing review to your server, Kim. Please visit us soon! :) -Najjah
Food was delicious! It was the set Thanksgiving menu but was excellent! I recommend the butternut squash soup, the skillet cornbread and the pumpkin spice cheesecake.
Thank you so much for dining with us, Sarah! We appreciate your review and thank you for celebrating Thanksgiving with us! -Najjah :)
We ate at Founding Farmers on Thanksgiving Day. First I’d like to say that the food was excellent! As good or better than home cooked Turkey Day. The disappointment was that we were given the absolute worse table in the place. We had a reservation but were not given a choice about sitting outside. Our table was stuck out in the open while all other tables were under a tent. When we went to sit down, our table was not only unlevel, but also the top was not firmly attached to the stand. I said it was impossible to eat our dinner on such a table. Thought we would be offered another table, but the server went and got a different table and set it up while we waited. We had a heater, so it wasn’t too uncomfortable. I guess someone gets the worst table, but especially on Thanksgiving, why have a worst table? I felt disappointed in our special occasion.
Delicious food! Terrific service! The “Frozen” cocktail is highly recommended!!!
So glad you enjoyed everything! Please come back soon! -Jessica
One of the most pleasant dining experiences our family has ever had… And we’ve had a lot of them in a lot of different states and countries. For Thanksgiving day they hit the bull’s-eye! The service was exceptional given how busy they were, And the meal prompt and delicious. Pumpkin cheesecake was one of the best things we’ve ever eaten. Congratulations FF!!! We will be back on our next trip to DC to visit our law school son.
Thank you so much for dining with us! Please come back soon! -Jessica
Great experience and the food was wonderful as usual!
Food was good, overall experience was enjoyable.
We were there while on vacation. The food was amazing. We want to go back everyday while in DC to try everything on the menu.
We were happily surprised by this place! We have already recommended it to some friends that are coming into DC!
Thank you so much and we look forward to your next visit. -Tiffany
Ryan was great. Great timing and energy. Would definitely come back and ask for him.
Wonderful! We look forward to your next visit and we will be sharing with Ryan! -Tiffany
As the stars indicate, we were pleased with the food and service. The so-called background music, however was obnoxious and annoying.
