Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Liz and Ivan at the bar were great. Liz was just a rick star. Beautiful smile and nice. The food was awesome The eggs were to die for. While it was crowded and noisy the service was great. It was just a busy time.

No wait to sit at the bar… delicious brunch! Bern, Liz B, and Ivan were the best!! French toast was perfect, and I would recommend upgrading choice of bread to pancakes!

We visited Friday morning and Sunday mid day and had great experiences both times. The food is too notch but the service is phenomenal. We had great time both days. Bernadette is just fantastic in every way. Liz is just a sweet heart and everyone...sitting near us were openly expressing how perfect she is for the job. Ivan was on top of things and even though the place was slammed, he kept things moving.More

Four of us had dinner on April 9th, and enjoyed our meal. I'm deducting one star because my prime rib, which I ordered medium, came out closer to well done. The other meals were very good. BUT, the service by Shaeday (sorry I butchered the...spelling) was incredible, so I'm adding the star back in. Easily one of the best servers I've ever had. She was a natural, juggling several tables, but giving us so much attention that we felt like she was there only for us. She deserves a raise and a flower bouquet! I would try Founding Farmers again if I'm back in DC.More

Decided to stop by for lunch at this place, Founding Farmers did not disappoint me. Packed during lunch time but waiting was not long. Atmosphere was great. Staffs were attentive. Meals were served quickly and delicious. My easy choice for anyone would be chicken pot-pie....BBQ ribs were beautifully made, very moist, soft and tasty.More

Food was great. Such a variety on the menu. They did a great job! Huge portion of pancakes and Liz was the best multi-tasking server I have seen. Everyone behind the bar was great today. We are going back tomorrow!

My partner and I are from out of town and tried this restaurant on a whim and we're SO GLAD WE DID! It was a busy place (we did not make reservations), but we scored a couple of bar seats and LIZ took great care...of us. She was attentive while we ate and also gave us great tourism information. We both got the Founding Farmer's breakfast with french toast and it was delicious! We also tried their drip coffee and a cappuccino and both were wonderful.More

My husband and I are on vacation in DC and decided to try Founding Farmers DC. Both of our meals were horrible. My asparagus was so old and tough it was inedible and my kale salad was soaked in dressing. My husband’s fried fish platter...tasted awful. We have had frozen grocery store fish that tasted better. Service was slow and server seemed overwhelmed. Very bad experience.More
