Farmers Fishers Bakers Ratings and Reviews
We dine out often and consider service the MOST important factor.
Over the past year we have dined here 4 times (We live outside the area).
Up until this last visit it was a “go to spot”.
This time around the service was not only inadequate, but we felt we were “annoying” our server.
We ordered a few pieces of sushi as an appetizer, and then had to ask 2 servers a combined 4 times for soy sauce, plates, wasabi and ginger. The last request receiving the “rolled eyes” from our server.
If either employee had stopped long enough at our table to listen to us, one request for all would had sufficed.
Our server’s actions put us on our defensive for the rest of the evening, finding service faults the rest of the way (impatience, lack of no follow up after delivery of food and lack of knowledge of available products, to mention a few).
We hoped a manager would come by to inquire about our experience, but that never occurred either!
If you decide to work in a service industry, then SERVICE is what you should provide!
We tipped accordingly to the service we received (15% graciously) and will look elsewhere on future visits to the area for our “go to spot”.
Set beautifully along the Potomac River boardwalk, between Georgetown and Foggy Bottom, with views down to the Kennedy Center and beyond, Farmers.Fishers&Bakers is a totally delight. The place is run by the North Dakota Farmers' Union and specializes in fresh local ingredients, along with food sources from the farmers' union.
The menu varies from salads to fish to steak to pasta -- all of it exceptional, n a terrific, friendly atmosphere.
Book early. The place fills up fast - especially on weekends.
Farmers Fishers Bakers is my favorite restaurant in the DC metropolitan area. I recommend any friends I have flying into the area to make the trip. The menu is creative and delicious, the drinks are fun and novel, and the service has always been amazing. Make a reservation, as walk-ins are usually tough, but that comes with all great restaurants.
Fantastic food and great service! FFB did not disappoint my out-of-town guests and their 1-year old. They all left happy and marveled at the decor (that bath tub outside the bathroom definitely entretained the 1-year old). We were also celebrating a birthday and they gave us complementary champagne!
I normally love this place but this time was a little off. The service was kind of spotty and chaotic (our main waiter was very friendly and was good but there were several people servicing our table and some weren’t so good). The food was just so-so this time too. Maybe it was just an off night, so I will continue to recommend it, but with a little caveat this time.
Our reservation was for 1:45pm, we were seated around 2pm. The host and one of the waiters told us the buffet is open until 3:30pm. They had already run out of two items (slow cooked bacon and a side) when we went up at around 2:15pm. Apparently, "coming earlier is better." So charge less for people who show up later? OR attempt to maintain some sort of quality, standard, and care in the food you provide. The remaining buffet was barely fresh and lacked a theme, which included artichoke dip, various wilted salads, jambalaya and meat cuts (most gone), french toast, and scrambled eggs. You could request greasy, low quality cheese slices, which come with the buffet, apparently, "sushi," and cinnamon rolls brought to the table. Biscuits came to the table as well - likely the sole redeeming factor in the table side options. They were crunchy, flaky, and presented a nice texture. The fried chicken was also tasty as well as the guacamole. However, when we went up a second time to try other items - around 2:45pm - we found that the servers and restaurant staff were filling their plates with the leftovers. So, if there were other items, I wouldn't know because they were gone. The service was confusing or rather confused and, as a result, appalling. It took four people to find out who our waiter was. Every request we made was greeted with affront as if we had offended. At least the water refills were on point. Don't understand the hype and would not recommend.
Farmers Fishers Bakers was amazing! I dined here for brunch, and the food was really good. The variety of options pleased my palette. I don't usually eat grapefruit, but the sugared grapefruit featured at the brunch was delicious. There was crab, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs with mushrooms and pieces of sausage, jambalaya, and so much more. Also, there was the option of ordering fried shrimp and two other dishes - all included with the brunch. Let me tell you...the fried shrimp was DE-licious! I was trying not to be greedy so I opted out of ordering another round. Normally the scenery is nice but the fountain was torn apart unfortunately. There's enough traffic going through the area to people watch while you eat, however. Overall, the entire brunch was definitely worth the money. If you've never been, I would go!
I have been to all the Founding Farmers in the DMV area. This was my first vist for brunch at this location. It was definitely not the best brunch. The food items were not clearly marked so some items you had no idea what the dish was. There is no omelet station. I was told the lines were getting much to long for omelets. So they had to abandon this idea. I would like to suggest that you have patrons put their order in for an omelet. Then have it brought to the table by the wait staff. Also there is no bacon, sausage, pancakes, waffles, hash browns, or potatoe dishes on the brunch menu. Which are a staple at most brunch buffets. So if you are looking for a traditional breakfast this is not the place. Another option would be, if you would like these items you can have breakfast at the other Founding Farmers locations in MoCo, DC and Tysons Corner. This establishment is heavy on the cocktails. So if this is what you like its a must. I will definitely return for lunch and dinner only but not for brunch.
This was my first visit to FFB. The brunch buffet was offered to us for $32 each. The person at the egg station was rude, telling us how they don’t do orders. The food was not that god and the restaurant looked dirty and run down. $80 with tip for 2 breakfasts, I won’t be back.
When we arrived, it was VERY busy. Lots of people were waiting to be seated and the front desk was very efficient and organized in getting everyone seated. We were seated later than our reservation, but everyone was very kind and apologetic for the wait and we received extra attention from one of the managers. Once seated, we had a great time and ate delicious food. This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to on the waterfront. They have something for everyone and we were not disappointed in the food, atmosphere, or service.
Dinner was great, service was wonderful, the desserts were terrible!!! We had a table of 6 and multiple desserts were ordered. The gingerbread/carrot cake was very dry and flavorless, the chocolate cake was also dry and soaked in chocolate milk, it was gross. The fried dough was decent.
Underwhelmed. We typically go to Founding Farmers and always love it. We decided to venture over to Farmers Fishers and Bakers and the entire experience was just ok.
We had a reservation for 8:15 and the majority of our party was there at 8pm. They did not seat us until 8:50pm after being told numerous times they were bussing our table. The food was ok. A couple of our appetizers were good, but it seemed as if the food had been sitting for a bit before being brought out (it was very busy that night so I understand he served getting tied up).
Our actual entrees were not good. The pizza I ordered was cold and had almost no sauce and a couple slices of cheese. My husband's french fries were stale. My sisters boyfriend's fries were definitely a better bunch. However his sandwich was cold. Our server was great, and he was very attentive with getting our drinks.
Overall, will not return to farmer fishers and bakers but will continue going to founding Farmers as we always have a great experience.
