    55555 by Trond A

  • Reagan HanselmanIf you want real stuffed French Toast, go to Eva's Bakery in Salt Lake City. I know it sounds random, but it has the best French toast I've ever had, even better than my favorite NYC brunch spots.

    55555 by Reagan Hanselman

  • Carla W.Stuffed French toast was soooo good !

    55555 by Carla W.

  • Thomas NThroughout the entire dinner the noise level was quite disturbing. I enjoyed the apple mac&cheese. However the pork chops my girlfriend ordered tasted very bitter and were quite unpleasant to eat.

    33333 by Thomas N

    55555 by Murad S

    33333 by Matt W

  • Tyler C.Bread appetizers 👌🏼

    55555 by Tyler C.

  • Christopher P.Dank Chicken and Waffles with wonderful pairings of mac and cheese and white gravy. The bacon wrapped dates are a must as well as the beignets. This place reeks of culture that we all desire.

    55555 by Christopher P.

  • Eman ABy far I would consider it one of the best breakfast and brunch location in DC😍😍 but try to make a reservation before you come because it can be crowded during the holidays.

    55555 by Eman A

  • Antipologirl OThe Brie bread with Apple was really good. We tried the farmhouse platter. The corn and ribs were very good.

    55555 by Antipologirl O

  • Isa L."We don't sit incomplete parties" is a really stupid policy, particularly when it's a party of TWO.

    33333 by Isa L.

  • Mayank LChicken and waffles are so good. Also the cornbread is $5, a huge portion, and has actual corn kernels in it, how awesome is that. Mac and cheese side was meh tho.

    55555 by Mayank L

    33333 by Jason

  • Daniel AI thought the chicken pot pie was amazing! It did not have the typical pie crust though. It was more like a stew with a biscuit. I would definitely order this dish again.

    55555 by Daniel A

    55555 by Carlos F

  • kannan DThe French toast tastes so different and great.. #musthave

    55555 by kannan D

  • Kyle R.The food was great, but the pricing can be a little obscene. The hostesses were equal parts snotty and incompetent. If I wait 30 mins past a reservation to sit down, don't be rude.

    22222 by Kyle R.

    55555 by Josh Polchar

  • Kiran G.Don't expect a quick meal here...even on a Tuesday.

    55555 by Kiran G.

  • D W.The food is great, but get there early because reservations don't seem to mean squat. I can understand a 10-15 minute wait, but being seated 45 minutes after our scheduled reservation wasn't cool.

    33333 by D W.

  • Ignacio C.Overall really awesome food. Fried chicken and waffles are great, the carrot cake is good, and the constitution drink is delicious. Beware of really big food portions!

    55555 by Ignacio C.

    55555 by Jamie L.

  • BobbyAwful, awful service. "10 minute wait" for a walk-in = two hours. Sure, the food is good,but not nearly good enough to overshadow the awful service.

    22222 by Bobby

  • John Z.Yummy fresh food

    55555 by John Z.

  • Christie G.The Bloody Mary is stunning but as much as I love bloodies, they're a little too aggressive for my taste buds here.

    55555 by Christie G.

  • Linda B.if you're here for brunch, beignets are a must have!

    55555 by Linda B.

  • Trey J.I love the cantaloupe cucumber cocktail. Stay away from 'the bone drink'

    55555 by Trey J.

  • MalloryWaaaaay too crowded. Didn't get seated

  • Mel D.Drinks are incredible. Homemade ginger beer in the dark and stormy. Wonderful spices in the Clementine. The skirt steak and enchiladas are spectacular. Come hungry.

    55555 by Mel D.

  • Brette C.Try the Pisco Punch, it's a fantastic cocktail! When you enter, the giant jars of pickled vegetables reminds one of the Governor's heads in a jar on The Walking Dead! ;)

    55555 by Brette C.

  • Scott JSlowest bartenders and service ever. There were tons of tables open and we still didnt get seated. I ordered a beer 10 minutes ago and it's still not here.

    55555 by Elizabeth J.

  • SophiaSkillet cornbread is a pleasant surprise. Totally worth the $5. I love eggs and got the deviled eggs but was not as pleasantly satisfied with them as I was with the cornbread! Overall great meal.

    55555 by Sophia

  • Sara B.Try the lobster mac and cheese -- even if you don't want all the mac and cheese, you get a whole lobster tail!

    55555 by Sara B.

  • Tamara N.The beignets are not to be missed. If you get there around the time the start brunch they'll probably have a batch ready for you.

    55555 by Tamara N.

  • Dan D.Classic, simple and delicious: the Founding Farmers Sazerac.

    55555 by Dan D.

  • Dara F.Good for brunch, but a definite pain to get a table on a weekend. Go on a weekday if you possibly can! I strongly recommend the homemade English muffins...

    55555 by Dara F.

  • K T.Must try the lemon diver scallops. Perfectly seared and risotto pairing is seriously flavor packed.

    55555 by K T.

  • Nayha P.Get The Constitution cocktail. It's light, refreshing, and not too sweet.

    55555 by Nayha P.

    55555 by Mark S.

  • Terence T.The chicken and waffles are so damn good!!! Dutch is a homeboy.

    55555 by Terence T.

  • Ryan K.The food is hearty, but goes cold fast because it's freezing in here.

    55555 by Ryan K.

  • Duy N.The Rick's Roy is choice

    55555 by Duy N.

  • Zafar H.the cornbread is outstanding, its as good as what they serve at DC Chophouse. Also, I am not big on Chicken & Waffles, but they are really good here.

    55555 by Zafar H.

  • Jeeves M.One of the best breakfasts in the city. Try the different glazes they use on the bacon. My fave is the sweet and sour!

    55555 by Jeeves M.

  • ✨allthatglltters✨Chicken & waffles was great....comes with 1 side of your choice BUT what they don't say on the menu is that it also comes with AMAZING Mac n cheese! Order & you will be full for 48 hours :-)

    55555 by ✨allthatglltters✨

  • ThePurplePassport.comFounding Farmers’ focus on the environment is normally laid out by the server when you sit down The food is great, with prices a little expensive for lunch but a good deal for dinner.

    55555 by Persephone E.

  • Eric D.The Butcher's Farmhouse Grill is amazing and comes with one of the best corn on the cobs I've ever had. Also, try their scratch sodas. They make them in house and are delicious.

    55555 by Eric D.

  • Mel L.If you request the breakfast chicken and waffles, they will accommodate for a fee! Worth it!!!!

    55555 by Mel L.

  • Zahid Z.Don't bother. Overhyped restaurant with a wait so large that they literally have a "reading room", complete with novels for you to read. Despite the hype, food is mediocre at best.

    33333 by Zahid Z.

  • Kelsey H.Make reservations. You'll get a good meal no matter what you order, but ... make reservations. You'll thank me later.

  • Derek F.Very tasty, unusual signature plates, incl. skirt steak accompanied by a side of two chicken enchiladas with a corn on the cob with cheese sprinkled on top. Service is a little slow, but worthwhile.

    55555 by Derek F.

  • Alex G.Great food. However, they do not cater to allergies well. My brother is allergic to diary and it took them 3 times to get his burger right, which still wasn't right after the 3rd fix. Careless!

    22222 by Alex G.

  • Kenneth S.I don't think it would be an exaggeration to say this is one of the best places to eat in DC. No pretentiousness about their mission and food to back it up.

    55555 by Kenneth S.

    55555 by Sarah W.

  • Jack D.As far as non-alcoholic drinks go, FF has the best Arnold Palmers around. Don't forget to start your meal off with the popcorn of the day.

    55555 by Jack D.

  • Kate M.Oh my pot pie! I highly recommend ordering one. However, avoid the meatloaf.

    55555 by Kate M.

  • Nicole N.O. M. G. Best meal I've had on DC!!! Rock the West Side if you like vodka and lemon! Score yourself: deviled eggs, bacon Lillie's, mussels, plank salmon or any other fresh fish!

    55555 by Christina L.

  • Sean H.Such a snooty staff. Second time here and I thought the first time was a fluke in their stuck up attitude. Nope! Foods not that good either.

    22222 by Sean H.

  • Mika C.They act like they cannot create room or adjust when things happen not on the reservation list. They kill me with that!! Excellent food tho, but is that enough?

    33333 by Mika C.

  • Jennifer S.The Drag Through the Garden was a bit too salty for my taste. Cranberry Cucumber Cooler is delish –- like a sweet sparkling water.

    55555 by Jennifer S.

  • Larissa B.Stuffed French toast was soooo good :)

    55555 by Larissa B.

    55555 by AJ W.

    55555 by Sharon N.

  • Diego C.Try to avoid the rude short blond hostess. U ask her to c the menu. And she would say she doesn't have any. Even thought there r plenty next to her computer n more in the table behind her

    22222 by Diego C.

    55555 by Dion H.

  • Michael ANay on chili cheese burger and fries. Just get the chili. It swamps the rest. Fries were poorly done. Bacon lollis ok but less (or no) cinnamon please. Usually like FF so just being honest.

  • Shantee H.Try the IMF

    55555 by Shantee H.

  • Dean B.One of my favorite places to eat in AMERICA, not just DC. Use OpenTable to reserve way ahead if you can. Great favorites in food, weekly draft changes in beer. Amazing… (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)

    55555 by Dean B.

  • Best Bites B.For its grilled cheese, this farm-to-table eatery makes its own wheat bread, which is piled with a cheesy trifecta: Muenster, Gruyère, and white cheddar.

    55555 by Best Bites B.

  • Candice K.Try the Red Velvet cake!

    55555 by Candice K.

    55555 by Annie L.
