Usually enjoy this restaurant, but my Crabcake Benedict has heavy on English muffin and super light on Crabcake. I’ve had better. Appetizer was beignets or their version. It was mediocre and it came out after the entree. Seems like the kitchen is working out kinks, which is understandable with covid. Server was great!

A-mazing!!!!! In DC for 2 days. Looked in open table to get a reservation for dinner. Founding Farmers did not disappoint! The Mac and cheese was to die for. And the in house vodka was better than Tito’s IMO. I will be back the next time I was in town.

Tried it again , did not work out. They should probably re name this place as Wendy's or Arby's , waste of time and waste of money.

They are strictly enforcing Covid guidelines, which made us very comfortable and relaxed so that we could enjoy our meal and each other. Tables are sufficiently spaced and staff are well-trained.

Chilly day for outdoor seating but best option during COVID-19. Restaurant would do well to invest in area-heaters for outdoor diners' comfort.

Enjoyed outdoor dining with great social distancing. Didn’t feel rushed as my husband and I caught up with friends we had not seen in months. It was their first time at FF and they enjoyed their meals. My husband and I as well. We were hoping to sit in Andre’s section as he provided outstanding service last time we were there but he wasn’t there when we arrived for our 2pm reservation. We didn’t leave until after 5:30! And we weren’t given any side eyes for taking up the table for all that time. It was a delightful experience. I’m looking forward to the next time...which is scheduled for this coming weekend for breakfast with my girlfriends. Their first experience too. I’m sure it will be a blast.

I have been trying to book brunch here for a while now and finally made it. I loved the food!!

The only thing I will add is that I got turned away at the door for a table for 2 but was able to make a reservation on OpenTable with no issue. They mentioned they were booked for the day but that wasn’t reflected on OpenTable. It could be that the hostess didn’t care to check which didn’t sit right with me. Overall, the food is amazing and the staff is too. I would just make sure you have a reservation and if you get turned away, check OpenTable to be sure 😉 Happy Brunching!

Extensive, diverse menu. Excellent food and presentation. The service is very good generally, but a little slow this time - probably due to being extended outside during pandemic, far away from the bar and kitchen. Good experience overall. I recommend.

We made a reservation online and were pleased with how easy it was. When we arrived we were seated right away. They were very nice from beginning to end. One of the host was especially sweet to my 1 year old and made it a point to make her smile and we loved that. I wish I would have caught his name. Overall a great experience we will definitely be going back with my family.

Thank you, Courtney for sharing your review with our team. I am real sorry our take on the classic dish-Steak Frites was sadly nothing special, and the preparation failed to WOW you. :/ We will look into this and see what improvements can be made to the quality of this meal. That said, we hope to have you back for another try sometime soon and please call us anytime for a reservation or carry out order: 202-822-8783. -Amy

I love the total experience of dining at this restaurant. This time I ordered the Shrimp & Grits, with Andouille sausage and it did not disappoint! The grits were creamy, the Andouille spicy and the shrimp were large!!!! I made sure to save room for dessert - apple pie with ice cream. The ice cream tasted like it was freshly churned. I wonder if they have their own dairy?

I travel with a picky bunch. They felt their eggs were a bit underdone. I think after hearing all the hype, we were all expecting a more expansive menu.
Service was ok. I had the French toast. I loved the presentation but I wanted more depth of flavor.
