We went to dinner here last Friday with reservations and were seated immediately. Our waitress was very attentive and the service was quick. My crab cakes were especially good and my husband said the special (fish) was excellent. The burger was really big and the homemade ketchup was a hit. The side dishes were excellent. We did not do dessert because we were full. The bar didn't have normal buy anywhere beer (bud light) but my husband said the IPO that they offered was very good.

The menu is quite extensive but our waiter knew very little when we asked pretty basic questions. Could not tell my husband what type of sauce the pasta and clams came in. The food was just OK. My chicken dish was a little overcooked and overpowered by onions. Best part of the meal was dessert.

I will preface with saying, I am normally not one to complain. I would have rated this place no stars if I was given the option. I made a reservation for 4 people at 7:45 and by 8:10 pm our table was still not available. Why make a reservation? When I spoke with the male hostess he condescendingly said sorry and that he would send us some champagne while we waited. I saw the employee he directed to get the champagne, but noticed he stayed up front with both hostess, while mind you, no one was at the hostess desk... we never received the champagne. I was so disappointed with the lack of customer service that my party and I left and went to Tony and Joe's next door where we were quickly sat and enjoyed the dinner very much.

They ran out of several beers advertised as available. Waiter delayed in bringing soy sauce and wasabi (why doesn't it automatically come with sushi??!!). We are the sushi without it because we didn't want it getting any warmer than it already was. Pork shank was ok. Nothing to rave about.

We only had to wait 20 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. That's my max! Food was delicious and there were good options for Sunday brunch. Our waiter should have been more attentive, perhaps he is not as experienced as the other waiters; or he could just be a below average waiter. We should not have to wait more than 10 minutes for you to bring us coffee...just coffee.

Despite having a 7:15 reservation, we were not seated until after 7:30. Overall the staff was friendly, and made good recommendations; however, it was quite busy the night we were there, and we had to wait quite a while for our first round of drinks. By the time our food came, our drinks were empty. Definitely paying for the view here.

Food was awesome. I brought a friend and it was her first time, and she loved the food.\n\nMy two complaints have to do with service. The first is that the server forgot our shrimp but managed to get it to the table next to us, and they came notably after we arrived. That was actually minor but my next complaint exacerbated everything. The big thing is we left the table to get food and as I am returning I see that my napkin has been knocked to the floor and the server picked it up and folded it as though it was a fresh napkin and put it back at my plate's side. What if I hadn't seen what happened and used a dirty napkin that had been on the floor?!...Ewww!

We had NO idea what to expect other then a friend said 'You are going to love this place!'. Thank goodness I have friends that know me well because I loved it! I'm from NYC where good food is as easy to find as our bright lights, and I'm 'picky' when traveling (especially with my family), but this did NOT disappoint by any means. Using simple, locally sourced ingredients, the chefs turned them into magic. The Bread and Broth blew my socks off from the first bite and the food got better from there. We went with our 12 year old twins and although this isn't marked as 'family friendly' there were a TON of kids there. I LOVED LOVED LOVED it. I'm already planning our next trip to DC, perhaps just to visit this place again.

We were very impressed with the food and drink selection but don't feel that FFB treated us as though they cared whether or not we would return. We were greeted kindly and taken to our reserved table within a reasonable amount of time and our waiter was initially quite attentive and helpful but after we ordered, he all but completely disappeared. The few times we did see him, he was walking quickly past our table with his head down, seemingly trying not to make any eye contact with us or open up the possibility of any interaction. It was frustratingly difficult to order more drinks and, when one of our entrees came out incorrectly, it took three different people (our waiter not included, strangely) to correct the problem. And, of course, the entree showed up twice on the bill, which took another ten minutes to rectify. \n\nWorse, though, was that I ended up sick the following day with what I guess (but of course can't be certain) was food poisoning. I called after a few days to mention this (not accusingly, just asking if there were other reported cases) and was told a manager would call me back shortly. After five hours had passed without contact from a manager, I called back and was given the same story. Now, a full week after dining there and four days after calling (twice), I still haven't heard from them. \n\nIt started as a lovely experience and was excited to see the diverse and fresh options but have been very disappointed with the service I've received, both during my visit and afterward.

Between Founding Farmers, Farmers and Distillers, and Farmers Fishers Bakers, this one is my favorite. The food is awesome and they have super fun Tiki drinks, but I also just like the vibe here the most. It's right in Georgetown so it's great for brunch before shopping, but it also works if you are looking to have lunch date or a quick happy hour bite. I love to bring friends and family here and the price for the food is awesome. Drinks are a bit more expensive, but they are pretty unique so it's worth it.

This is fabulously updated comfort food! For brunch, it is VERY DIFFICULT not to leave feeling TOO FULL!! Everything is probably one of your favorite things to eat. The downside is getting in even with a reservation. The hostess stand is consistently rude and brazen. The service was wonderful when they first opened and has become adequate at best. I hope the food will keep them afloat because the company obviously doesn't care about how their patrons are treated.

Pumping hotspot for Sunday brunch ! Loved the food - really diverse offerings with great flavours !

They messed up two people's orders, including giving something non-gluten free to my friend who is allergic to gluten (she ordered steak tacos on corn tortillas and they gave her chicken on flour tortillas. On top of all of this, we waited over an hour to get our food, only to have two of us get the wrong thing. I was highly disappointed with this meal, as I normally love Farmers, Fishers, and Bakers--I specifically picked this restaurant to entertain my family and friends from out of state, yet everyone left annoyed and disappointed in the overall experience.

The buffet is an excellent offerings of food items you don't normally get at a buffet - ropa vieja, crab dip, bananas foster, etc. And first time I've ordered a punch drink from a semi-chain restaurant and legitimately received a great pour of alcohol. Definitely a great value and location. This will be a go-to brunch spot for friends when we are in D.C.

Music volume was continually turned up as more people filled the restaurant making it extremely difficult to converse. Food was OK, but nothing special. Bacon Blue mussels were very good, but the bacon had not been fried prior to adding so it was basically steamed with the mussels.

As a regular (1 or 2x a month) diner, I've written before about inconsistency. That seems to be the running theme here. Perhaps because the menu is SO varied....maybe it's hard to get everything right when you're trying to do too many things. The Tuna was a piece of frozen tuna steak.....overcooked. Generally this has been more of a chunk of tuna than a flattened piece. Perhaps some new creativity on what it is served with would help, as well. Two slices of tomato and mixed beans doesn't do much to set off the fish. The cauliflower & aisan pear salad was delicious, but a little overdressed. Our server, Caleb, was fair enough -- although mostly absent. We did have a woman who was very attentive. Didn't get her name but she may have been a host or management.

Very mediocre, we all agreed. The whole farm fresh concept rang false. The escarole salad was only romaine. The pork shank was dry as bone. The butternut squash risotto had no squash and was a gelatinous mess. The desserts were cold as if they were pulled out from the back of the fridge, and tasteless and tired. The Founding Farmers enterprise is really substandard. I've now eaten at every one of their restaurants and can affirmatively say, I tried it, and didn't like it. Waaay oversold.

Excellent food - enjoyed the hot crab dip appetizer and shrimp scampi with gnocchi and spinach. But the drink menu (tiki themed?) left a lot to be desired and seemed to add to this restaurant's identity crisis. Waitress was very frazzled, took over 20 minutes to get our drinks (one of which was a simple Coke) after ordering them. She also messed up our bill at the end. So, I'm torn - the food was awesome, but everything else was pretty underwhelming.

I had been previously for lunch and dinner, but this was my first brunch experience at Fishers Farmers Bakers. Like the other times, the food did not disappoint. There was a good variety, as advertised you can help yourself and eat as much or as little as you want. But what was quite disappointing, was how clearly they wanted to turn over our table. From the time we sat down, the music was loud (restaurants do this to make people not want to sit and talk, so they can turn the tables over faster). But more annoyingly, after getting our second plates worth of food, the check was delivered. Yet, we still were getting more food, so this started to feel like they wanted us to leave. And once this happened, they stopped refilling our water glasses. So while the food was good, I was quite disappointed in the environment and how clearly they didn't value me and my group as customers- and instead they were focused on the quantity of customers. Additionally, the layout of the restaurant (is not set-up well for a buffet style brunch. We had to weave through tables and walk through the waiting area (which is often quite crowded) with our food.

I was not a fan of farmers fishers bakers which was extremely disappointing because they have a fabulous location and I've heard such great things. We arrived at 7:30 for our 7:45 reservation and we were not seated until 8:15. I checked with the hostess at 8 to see if we were forgotten about who told me they were clearing our table right then (which is what they told us when we got there). We were given a table that we watched another family move from because it was in such an uncomfortable area by the bar where people were constantly squeezing by you. We got the crab dip and calamari for appetizers both of which were just OK. We ordered the fishers fry scallops, honey pot fried chicken, mussels, and fried whitefish. All of the fried dishes were very bland with equally bland sides and we barely touched them. My husband had the mussels and said they were OK but nothing special. At the end of the meal we were laughing at how monochromatic and tasteless our plates were. Our waiter seemed like he had been working a full 12 hour shift as he was kind of rude and a bit lost. The desserts looked great but we didn't even try one because our waiter decided to go MIA for about a half hour at which point we were finished with our experience. The only good part of the meal is that the bill was pretty cheap for how much we ordered.\n\nOverall way overrated but the bill was cheap for Georgetown considering that we both ate and drank. I would not return here and would opt for far better Georgetown restaurants.

We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation. There isn't a great place to wait for your table to be ready inside but fun to watch the ice skating outside. Our waiter was very fun and enthusiastic, wasn't knowledgeable about the soup of the day and didn't offer up the fish of the day until prompted. Fried Brussel Sprouts and Bleu Cheese salad is a winner. Try the tacos with masa puffy corn, not too filling, fresh flavor. The only place the waiter steered us wrong was in our dessert order. The cake slices are HUGE! 1 order would have been fine to share between 5 but we ordered 2 desserts and wasted a lot. If sharing the Smith Island Cake, request it to not be in the hot chocolate. Delicious enough straight up! If you know you want beignets, order them ahead of time because they could take 20 minutes.

Also when asking patrons about their allergies, the server should be clear about how the entree will come considering said allergies and ask if that is ok before proceeding. I was served a sauce-less steak that was bland but cooked to my requested temperature. They were great in making the change for me, but better communication would have been great.

Farmers Fishers Bakers has a superb atmosphere!! It's an energetic place that great for brunch gatherings. We hung for a little over 4 hours and didn't feel rushed to get a move on. Glad we tried it out. Also our group arrive about an hour late (an accident on 295--DC life:) and the hostess station kindly accommodated us! Service at the table could be improved , but I'm sure it was do to the large crowd of diners for brunch. Will def go again!!

Service was somewhat off....had a reservation and was told to wait...when I approached to see how long it would be, was told 'oh, here's your table now.' Our waiter was a sweetheart however it took about 4 tries til we got the correct bill...this brought to us by management. Food was fine, as usual.

Hosted a 'mom's night out' dinner here with a group of fellow new mothers (sans babies, of course). The restaurant was accommodating to our large group at the time of reservations, but I have to say they were horrible about checking us in and seating us (it took forever, we had to ask about four times, they were snotty to us). However, once seated, our server was lovely and the overall dining experience was great. Fantastic cocktails, amazing breads, great mains (the tacos rocked).

Made a res but we were still kept waiting. Prob would have been the same whether a res or not. Several servers came by to tell us things and that they weren't our server. After waiting longer our server finally came. Ordered the scallops meunière with butternut squash risotto - scallops were ok but risotto was hard and crunchy and no squash. Sent it back and 20 minutes later after my companion was finished they brought me a new plate. Risotto was better but still no squash and scallops were greasy. Gave up. Warning - the iced tea is made with Earl Grey so if you don't like that don't order it. My companion had the fish and chips. It was better than the scallops and the corn salad was actually pretty good. Sadly that was the highlight of the meal. I'd say the food is definitely over priced as well. If the food was cooked well and tasted better I wouldn't have minded the cost. Luckily the waiter took my meal off the check. I wouldn't have asked but I was glad he did because it really wasn't good. So, will probably never go again which is disappointing because the place had potential.

The fish sandwich also good. The New England Clam Chowder could have been a tad hotter. The Cauliflower salad was fine. This place is very very comparable to Founding Farmers. The price for lunch is excellent. Solid restaurant in D.C. in the Georgetown/pier area. Parking is difficult, however.

I was attracted to the location of the restaurant so I brought my husband out to dinner one night. While I've been eyeing their family brunch I thought we'd go out to approve the location before bringing out the toddler for cinnamon buns. Out waiter was lovely, we like to eat and talk in peace without the constant interruption so that worked well for us. However out location wasn't ideal for having made a reservation in advance. We were sat at the end of a long strip of two seaters and with the noise level in the place I could barely head my husband in front of me but rather I spent half the dinner overhearing the couple next to me who appeared to be having their first date. The tables were so uncomfortably close to each other I felt like we were on a double date. I will however recommend you don't bother with the puffy shelled tacos. I went out of my salmon comfort zone to try a fun food and was sadly disappointed. The shell oozed of oil which left my fingertips covered in a glorious sheen and a sour taste of dirty, reused cooking oil with every bite. I would have like my steak more seasoned or at least have the caramelized onions more evenly spread your to get a more flavorful bite throughout. I would have switched with my husband had he not been so content with his steak. I think that was the only redemption. The beignets were also a big appeal in drawing us in, I do my research before going out test the fan favorites. While the half an hr wait time gave us time to talk, it was not favorable. Still, two thumbs up for the beignets :)

The manager had to kindly tell them that there were other guests waiting for that table. The manager then came to us and told us we can go ahead and order some appetizers on the house. We weren't sure if she meant one or multiple, so we ordered four! It was close to 9pm and we were all starving. Four free appetizers made up for the long delay and we were very happy!

The food was excellent (particularly for the price point), but the service was extremely disappointing. After being seated, we waited more than 10 mins before finally flagging down a server. That server rudely noted that he was not our server but demanded our order. We had to request several times that he just identify and send over our designated server. She quickly came over with water but then we waited an additional 15 mins for the drinks that we ordered. We never received one of the appetizers ordered (popcorn) -- when our entrees came with no sight of the popcorn, we told our server we no longer wanted it. She apologized and promised to have some boxed for us to take with us (we never got it...). The pretzel and dip app was awesome and the perfect amount for a table of 4. All four entrees ordered were delicious. After our plates were cleared, we waited other 20 mins before we saw our server again. Our server brought the table next to us a 'Happy Anniversary' dessert plate. We expected we'd receive something similar given that we'd told her we were celebrating one diner's birthday -- nope. We weren't even asked if we wanted dessert. We definitely would have ordered additional drinks had she been more attentive. In general, the service really took away from what would otherwise have been an awesome dinner.

Our meals, meatball burger, lemon herb brick chicken, and the cracklin pork shank were all pretty delicious; the crab dip was great too. Our disappointment came with dessert - we ordered, the peanut butter mouse pie, the beignets, and the floating Smith Island cake. The pie needed sugar, the beignets were doughy, and the cake didn't taste anything like a Smith Island cake, plus being set in hot chocolate made the bottom soggy. Saved room all day to get dessert, so having no one like any of the desserts was a big deal.

This was my second time to come to FFB...last time I came it was for an early Saturday morning brunch buffet. This visit was also Saturday brunch, but early afternoon rather than morning. Compared to the last visit, I was disappointed in the service. You really wowed me last time so the bar was set high. I didn't care for the lunch items on the menu...mostly meat, and Im a vegetarian. Maybe due to time slot of our reservation being different, but last time there was a lot more in the breakfast and vegetarian entree categories that I really enjoyed. The noise level is way too 'energetic' for my liking...

Considering this restaurant is part of DC's wharf development I was disappointed by its seafood offerings. The menu appears to try and appeal to a broad base, without making a claim to be great at any specific thing or things.

I'm sorry to say were found ourselves disappointed. The atmosphere was awesome, but the food was lacking, with exception to the hot crab dip, which was brought to our table bubbling and delicious. We ordered a sushi roll and two flatbread pizzas, which were only ok. The tomato / basil / mozerella pizza was honestly not very good - it was covered in a dried out tomato sauce (no slices like I was expecting) and not nearly enough cheese. Our server was friendly but less than we would expect from such a nice restaurant. Disappointing, because it is a gorgeous setting with a great feel!

Overall, it was a meh experience. We went for brunch on a Saturday morning. We were seated right away and our waiter was very nice and told us to help ourselves to the buffet. He made a note of saying 'there are no name cards but the servers will tell you what things are'. Well, they did not. Most things were recognizable but there were dips and no one to explain them. Also, I've never been to a brunch with stations and couldn't get a custom omelette made. For $30 pp I expect more. There was no bacon nor sausage, no salad, the only fruit was the caramalized grapefruit (divine by the way) and compote for French toast. Hot tea was even extra. The 'biscuits' I heard people say were passed around are actually scones. I think they need tethink things. I don't mind paying for a great meal (Saturday night we ate at Joe's, check was north of $300 and I don't regret a cent) but I need to leave satisfied.

Took a recommendation to come here on a Dad/Daughter 'date night'. F-F-B was excellent. The vibe and ambiance was energetic. The decor was great and we had fun spotting all of the different animals throughout the venue. We were amazed how many things are made in house from the syrups for the sodas (try the hibiscus) to the fact they harvest their own honey for the honey-fried chicken (which I had). We enjoyed our meals (she had the shrimp scampi over gnocchi and I had the aforementioned fried chicken) and even indulged in the ice-cream sandwiches (they come in four with different combinations of cookies and ice-cream flavors). \n\nAll in all, we were very impressed with the staff and the food.

Our family of four visited FFB just after Christmas 2016 while vacationing in DC. The atmosphere was lively and loud. The restaurant is bustling. I loved the location near our hotel in Georgetown and on the Harbor. It was lovely to snag a table in the window overlooking the ice rink. Since we had kids in tow (ages 11 and 13), we appreciate the diversity in the menu. The kids found some fun comfort foods; we adults were able to enjoy interesting food. I'm glad we didn't need anything other than what was delivered to us because our waiter never returned to check on us. The food was good and priced in keeping with the neighborhood. Our only frustration was the pricing of the wine menu. It's the kind of meal where you want to enjoy a drink or a glass of wine - but the wines were ridiculously overpriced.

After waiting 30 minutes for our table, we decided to seek brunch elsewhere. Why make a reservation if the restaurant doesn't honor/accommodate it?

It took 30 mins to get our cocktails after ordering them and our wine bottle didn't come until we were almost finished with dinner even though we ordered it when we ordered dinner. Our server seemed not to handle the crowded restaurant well and we were there to introduce visitors -- it was fair at best and these are just two comments! The crab cake was 3/4 bun and 1/4 crab - terrible! The salmon was overlooked and our son's fries were not fresh and over cooked but getting help would've taken another hour. One guest had steak and said it was 3oz with less fries than what came with the burger!!! Given the price point of the steak, you'd think the fries could be at least decent...not from the bottom of the frier!

Our server Luis was very very attentive. We were allowed to dine without pressure to move along. \n\nThe only challenge we had was with the calamari appetizer. Apparently the fryer had some issues so it came out late, at the same time as our meals, and then the calamari tasted like old grease. Luis immediately sent it back and order another batch. The second batch although cooked better was just not tasty. It lacked seasoning and was just unappetizing. We informed Jason who apologized profusely. We understood it was just not a calamari night for us. It really didn't break out experience, everything else we ordered was amazing from the drinks to the ribs and cioppino. \n\nWhat we lacked in appetizer the staff made up for in desserts. The birthday ladies truly felt celebrated. The atmosphere was so good, that after we paid our bill we went the bar to continue our girls night with another cocktail. It was a very good night!

Disappointing. To be fair, they did make it right and did not charge for appetizers. However, they completely forgot to take one of the diner's entrée orders and we were heading right to a show. After nudging our server and the manager came over, my diner had to eat his entrée in about 5 minutes.\n\nLike I said, they did not charge for the appetizers, but we BARELY made our show because we waiting so long for the food that barely came. It wasn't an overly busy night and was in-fact a week night. Hopefully, this was just an off night for them because the food was pretty good.

I was super excited to finally try FFB and decided to visit with a friend our families. Right away that excitement dwindled... I arrived 5 minutes before my reservation and was told everyone in my party had to be present to be seated. Fine. My party arrive and we had to wait an additional 15 minutes before we were seated. After being seated, they forgot to set the table with napkins and silverware. They bought out the silverware and plates and half of them were dirty. I certainly hope this was a one off bad day but it will be quite some time before I consider going back.

I really like this place, so my latest experience was particularly disappointing. We had to wait 20 minutes despite having a reservation, and then waited another 20 minutes before a server even brought us water. Unfortunately, that only occurred after we asked for a waiter. The bar was out of multiple drafts, and the family sitting adjacent warned us to check our silverware and glasses; theirs was noticeably dirty upon arrival and they requested clean replacements. The food was quite good--I've never had a bad meal here--but our waiter was not attentive. Overall, something seemed off tonight - I hope they can turn it around.

The entire staff needs retraining. We had an early dinner reservation,5pm. They have a policy of not seating parties if one is missing even when the restaurant is empty like it was. So they made an elderly guest stand the entire time. No seating is available at the host station. \n\nOnce seated it took them 35minutes to wait on us. Then the meal took over 40 minutes to make it to the table and the salad and entree came at the same time. We had left ourselves 90 minutes to order and eat before a concert that evening. Big mistake. From the host to the waiters to the kitchen staff it was miserable service. The manager came by twice to apologize without any prompting from us. While his 'concern' was appreciated we would have preferred simple efficient service. \n\nAnd this is not the first time it's happened. Last time I thought it was an anomaly. Guess not. Think I need to find a new place. \n\nIf you don't require skilled service delivered in an efficient manner, this is the place for you.

This was one of the worst restaurants we have had the displeasure to dine at in Georgetown. We had a reservation and was seated late due to staff dealing with another customer freaking out at the horrible service and leaving. We then received water about twenty minutes after we were seated. We ordered the hamburger sliders for an appetizer....and we literally paid $15 for 6 little burgers that tasted like a Big Mac. So we could have saved money and just gone to McDonalds to get that kind of food. Then our entrees came and they were subpar. I had heard such great things and was beyond disappointed. During this time, I had asked for another Diet Coke and it took them almost 40 minutes to get me one. We had decided at the beginning of the meal that we wanted to try the Boston cream pie and thought we would give them one last chance. The pie was not good by any means ....and the crust was inedible. Throughout this entire time, our server was absent and overall unpersonable. When we asked for the check and just wanted to leave (after two hours!!), it took an additional 15-20 minutes to get our cards back. It also was incredibly loud and hard to talk. Horrible service, subpar food, and way overrated. Just avoid a headache with this one.

Our party of six found the noise level almost prohibitive in terms of conversing as a group. We had to lean over the table to get the gist of what was being said, and this was on a Sunday night. \nThe service was efficient and the food was decent, although the variety of burgers, pizzas, jambalayas, tacos, seafood and so forth was hard to choose from. That sounds silly, but the chef is trying to please many tastes and so it was hard to figure out what would be particularly good. The Scallops Meuniere were very good, the Shrimp Louis salad tasty but over-dressed, and the tacos very small for an entree. Thus, a mixed review for the food, yet we would come back. Although noisy, the vibe was youthful and energetic, and on the whole, this is a better restaurant than most of the other waterfront choices.

We are regulars at FFB and decided to bring friends from out of town. We began by waiting 25 minutes for our drinks. Food was brought out and literally thrown on the table. There was no follow-up once we received our entrees. I literally had my entire dinner with an empty water and wine glass. Horribly embarrassed that I had talked the place up so much, I asked to speak with the manager. The manager came over, gave an insincere apology and told us he would be right back with his card. After 20 additional minutes he didn't return and we left. Later that evening, likely when the manager got around to realizing that we had left, he called my cell phone (about midnight) woke me up and apologized for not returning to the table. Said he would send a follow-up email which he never did. Not sure what was worse, the awful service or the horrible follow through with management. Will be a while before we return. Looks like we will need to make another Harbour restaurant our favorite.

I would not recommend the pizzas. We got the basil mozzarella and the calamari pizza. The calamari was breaded and deep fried and then looked like it was just dumped on top of the crust and sauce. There was very little cheese between the crust and sauce. The basil mozzarella did not even have one piece of mozzarella per slice and the basil was insufficient. It may have been fresh mozzarella, but most people would probably want a little more cheese in exchange for it not being fresh if that drives the cost up so high that they have to skimp .

This was an amazing meal and that is saying a lot when you bring someone with extreme celiac disease. The waiter knew down to the spices in each dish which were or were not Gluten-Free options. It was so relieving to have such incredible service. We ordered sushi, fish, steak, jambalaya, and chicken dishes and each was better than the last. One thing I will say is that the sushi took some time since there is just one guy making it but nonetheless still worth the wait. Great experience and I've already relayed the message to family and friends.

This is a very popular and crowded place. The tasting dishes were excellent: citrus based sashimi dishes. The meal we ate was mostly seafood focused. Excellent overall. The few downsides were that we had a reservation, but still had to wait a bit for our table (we were only a few minutes late). Another is that the bar we waited at couldn't transfer the drinks to the table so the bill had to be closed out, which I thought was odd for a place like this. Lastly, there are seats with good views so the overall ambience is good, but we did not get one of those spots. I got a view of a wall. Maybe this was all payback for being late... I may visit again since I enjoyed the food, but will ask for a better seat.

Review comments are based on our experience with Thanksgiving pre-fix menu experience for a party of 8 - arrived for our reservation but had to wait 30 minutes for table to be ready, server was very attentive and accommodating, some meals or parts of the meal arrived cold, and some items were tasty while others were not. We were expecting more out of our Thanksgiving experience as we generally really enjoy Famers Fishers Bakers. We won't do Thanksgiving at FFB again but may try another Founding Farmers if we dine out again.

Great place but the service is very slow! It took over 35 minutes to get our table with a reservation. Once seated, no waiter came, after 10 minutes a busboy came and said the server was too busy and he took our drink order. It still took another 10 minutes to get drinks. After all of this we had to get the manager to help. The manager resolved everything and was very nice, but still it was a very slow experience and not pleasant. On the plus side, the food is good and the menu is great.

After rave reviews on line and from a friend, my family and I were overall disappointed with our experience. The California roll was blah and ruined with the sauce it came with. The shaved cauliflower salad had maybe three pieces of cauliflower and was over-dressed with dressing. The Brie sandwich on raisin bread was soggy on one side. On the upside, my husband enjoyed his IPA and steak frites.

Absolutely, positively, satisfying. While they did not have the typical breakfast meat (bacon and sausage), nor the typical egg/omelette bar, once you get past having to eat 'outside the box,' you'll know that's it's really BRUNCH; not breakfast, nor lunch, but BRUNCH! FFB was probably the first REAL BRUNCH I experienced. Every other restaurant serves breakfast food and lunch food, FFB serves you a creative collaboration of the both. Loved it! OMG -- that honey-fried chicken, the grapefruit, the fried shrimp, the absolute most buttery cinnamon bun ever! Also, the spicy tuna rolls, the watermelon salad, everything we had was good.

The brunch is one of the best in DC. We took our mother there for Mother's Day. It has a great selection of yumminess. My favorites are the pita bread with hot crab dip, the guacamole and chips, honey pot fried chicken, and the grapefruit brûlée. Oh, and did I mention the pork belly at the craving station. They have an assortment of great items, egg station, carving station, french toast station, salad station, and what appears to be Mexican and Down Low Country Station...the brunch is $30.00 and is a great deal for adults, but they charged my nephew who is FOUR YEARS OLD full price. I didn't understand that... ( 2 pieces of fried shrimp and a slice of pizza - which he barely ate) so, be mindful of that if you have young children going.

Farmers Fishers Bakers serves great food but it's so loud it's hard to hear anyone at your table. So wish restaurants would curb this trend. Also, FFB has a great brunch but they didn't label any of the dishes so it was hard to know what you were eating. I can't imagine if you had food allergies. Hope FFB changes that practice soon.

This was my second experience at FFB. I loved it overall. I loved the fact that the hostess, who was friendly and courteous on an overwhelmingly business, was also truthful and accurate about having a wait time and how long it would be before they could seat us. If helped me keep my impatient party from complaining about the wait. The food was excellent, like the previous time I ate there and my brunch-loving party loved everything they tried. \n\nMy only recommendation is if there's a significant delay like that, they should extend the time they will replenish the buffet.

Servers were either new or not very good. Long delays... and no check in with the guests if they needed anything regular enough. Also, restaurants where it's normal to eat with silverware and use a napkin seem like a given...we had to ask for both...several times... When asked about something on the menu, the first server said he didn't know, went to find out, and then never came back. We flagged someone else down after a while and he also did not know how to answer the question, but at least he returned with an answer. Why would you not bring soy sauce and wasabi with sushi orders? We had to ask for that, too. Food was good enough, though, and it was touted to be the best food in that harbor area. So, definitely satisfied with the food. And if I'm in the area watching a movie again, knowing the food is good, I'd go back. But seriously, not very many people would have patience for that kind of service. It was the kind of service that drives customers away. It's a good thing your food is good.

The food and concept are great, definitely a good brunch for out of town guests or when you don't want a bottomless drinking brunch. We were placed in one of the private dining rooms, which we did not realize would be the case. Because the nature of the brunch is that servers bring food to you at random outside of our buffet, we were forgotten. When we asked our server we had to wait 20 or so minutes for the pass foods we asked for. The table service component was very slow. \n\nAdditionally, when we were waiting for the cheque another customer came into the room to inform us that her party had the table next and asked how much longer we would be. The table turnover issue is not for customers to manage, and felt awkward/inappropriate. Hostesses could have done a better job managing her expectations, as we were seated 30 minutes late.

Have been here before and the food is consistently very good. Two things that are pet peeves of mine when dining out however. Number one-the appetizer came out at the same time as the entree. This is unfortunate because the entree becomes cold while eating the appetizer. Second, the waiter was no where to be found at times. Took forever to bring coffee and dessert then again a long wait for the bill. These things are probably minor and I would eat here again in a minute. Just makes me wonder how much training the staff gets! Overall it was a yum!

I really enjoyed the food and drinks at Farmers, Fishers and Bakers. Our server was fantastic and the menu was perfect for my family who were all interested in eating something different. My only constructive feedback is actually about the hostess. After we arrived and checked in, apparently they cancelled our reservation rather than checking us in (something I was not made aware of until I checked my email later that evening). While waiting, they set up a table, complete with silverware, for us (a party of 7). Then it just sat there in plain view of the host stand for about 5 minutes. When I asked about it, I was told 'we're still getting your table ready' then they tried to give it to a party of 3! Of course a table fit for 7 was inappropriate for the smaller party and they turned it down but it seemed that the host's plan was to genuinely seat us somewhere else and she never explained why. Additionally, had the first party taken the table we would likely have waited longer despite arriving on time for our reservation. This didn't really affect my or my family's dining experience but it's something to think about if you decide to eat here.

I brought my family in for a Father's Day reservation at 12:15pm. Unfortunately, the restaurant was running behind seating people, supposedly waiting for people at tables to leave. It was almost 30 minutes before I was seated. Other parties with reservations ran into the same issue. This delay is unprofessional.\n\nWe were in a bad mood when we sat down to eat. Fortunately, Chris did a great job as our server. He was attentive, which isn't always the case at this restaurant. The brunch food is excellent and also a good value at $30.

Great place to eat without the nagging stuffiness of a lot of the farm to table concepts in the area and beyond. I had a very interesting veggie burger, that was good but I likely wouldn't order again.

Just like it's sister restaurant Founding Farmers, I love Farmers Fishers Bakers. I've only been here for brunch (twice now), and it was great both times! Just be sure to make a reservation. I went on a Saturday at noon, and we overhead the hostess saying that the wait for walk-ins was 1.5 hrs. The brunch is a buffet for $30/pp, and well worth it. Note they only have the buffet during this time; you cannot order anything a la carte. The food is fresh, and frequently switched out. They bring around passed plates in addition to the brunch that you an take if you'd like- eggs benedict, sushi made in the restaurant, homemade pepperoni pizza, shrimp cocktail, etc. They also bring cinnamon rolls and biscuits to each table. And there's a dessert station with lots of options. There is so much food that you will definitely not leave hungry.

This was my first time to this restaurant, so it may have been the day I went, so take it with a grain of salt that I had 3 complaints.\n\n1) I had a reservation for 9:45am on Sunday, but I did not get seated until almost 10:30am. Again, I assume that had to do with the day I went, so I can forgive that...sort of....for a little time, but not a whole 45 minutes.\n\n2) As I was new I had hoped they would explain to me how the flat rate Sunday Brunch Buffet worked. They did not. Just FYI: Their house coffee and sweet tea are complimentary, but anything else is extra. You only get what is on the buffet, and then there are random servers walking around with small plates that you are supposed to just stop and ask to have it. They call it floating or roaming small plates or something like that.\n\n3) Okay this one is not a complaint, more of an observation. I went for brunch, and while they had everything from desserts to paella, their actual breakfast foods were limited. You had your choice of French toast (no maple syrup only chocolate), ham, or pre-set omelets. No option to customize your omelets, or have just good old fashioned eggs. No pancakes, or waffles, or grits, no biscuits and gravy, not even sausage. But you could have chips and guacamole, or rice and beans, or cheese polenta.....but this girl does not want paella for breakfast, she wants her good old fashioned breakfast.

Let's start with the positive-the food was great! Now for the rest: awful:\nWe went for a birthday as stated in our reservations. Backstory: everyone in the group was well over 21, however, one friend lost her entire wallet at the start of the trip and had only her check book and a temporary DMV ID print out (proving she is 23). We waited at the bar for our reservations to be ready. The bar tender was incredibly nice, and we ordered some beers; one beer had a bug in it. He apologized immensely and immediately brought a new one out (the beer was great!). We asked him if he knew how strict the bars in D.C. would be about our friend's situation. He wasn't sure and called over a manager, Maribel, who was also incredibly kind and helpful. Long story short she offered to help and gave suggestions to specific bars she knew she could get our friend into as D.C. is VERY strict on IDs. \nWe mentioned this trip was for a friend's Birthday and she said she would get her a drink. \nThen we get to the table..... our waiter forgot necessary utensils- but that's okay it happens. The kitchen sent out the wrong food- I was a waitress not so long ago and, again, that stuff happens. He promised to be right out with the right order. Once everyone else in the party was done eating, the right food was brought.... wrong. It was still not what was ordered. We were a party of five, but only received one check. etc etc. Other tables got ice cream with a candle for their Birthday guests, even after making it clear this was for a birthday we did not receive the same treatment (perhaps the other tables ordered those ice cream scoops with candles). The drink mentioned by the manager never came and she wasn't true to her word in helping the friend with the lost wallet. Again, the food was great and we might go back for the food. However, all the minor mistakes added up to a sub-par dining experience.

Let me start by saying that the mussel pot, seafood jambalaya, & appetizers were delicious. I had no problems with the food. I do have problems with the service & communication however. We reserved through open table & had to wait for a table for about 40 minutes after the fact. We also were told that we would be given a free round of drinks & the pretzel appetizer while we waited. We never got the pretzel appetizer at our table & my wife & I had to ask the manager/staff at least 3 times before we got our free drinks, which were rather small & watered down at that. If you don't mind poor service, a long wait period, & bad communication as long as the food is good then this is your spot. We will not be back.

We weren't seated for our 8:15 reservation until 8:55 pm, all the while OpenTable was still allowing diners to make reservations. When they finally came to seat our party of three, we were taken to the small two tops where they had squeezed in an extra chair. We refused and they did find us another spot immediately on the end of a communal table. When we sat, they gave us a $5 order of pretzels for our wait, a nice gesture, but not enough to make up for the inconvenience. Our server was more than pleasant, however, when our food arrived, it was merely warm, not hot. At this point, we didn't complain because we were just hungry and wanted to go home. I was disappointed with this experience after hearing so many good things about the restaurant and having such a great experience with the Founding Farmers brand.

The latest reservation available was 4:15 pm, which unfortunately was at the time staff had a shift change.

They were very apologetic, bought us two appetizers, and for the rest of our dinner I think we had 3 people serving us!

The sauce for the scallops was very salty, the parchment fish portion was very small with no sides and the tuna was bland. The pizza, however, was excellent. The deserts are a definite yes. Be forewarned, servings are huge and delicious. Better to share one amongst 2 or more. The restaurant is extremely vibrant and loud making it difficult to hear, which is not surprising.

I had a very pleasant time at Farmers Fishers Bakers. I arrived before the rest of my party so I had a beer at the bar; it was tasty though quite pricey - $11 for a glass which I estimate to have been the same quantity as about 3/4 of your average beer bottle.\n\nThe vibe of this place is great; it's right by the water at the heart of Georgetown, it has outside seating, and the theme is fun. It has tall ceilings, wooden furnishings, and a homey feel (extra bonus: the bathroom has a metal petal on the bottom so you can open the door without touching! hygienic!) I enjoyed the general atmosphere and at the end of the day, that's what will bring me back to this restaurant.\n\nThe drink menu has quite a range of interesting cocktails. The dinner menu has a bunch of variety (sushi, burgers, fish, salads, sandwiches). I went for the grilled cheese burger with bacon (exactly what it sounds like, two thin-cut grilled cheese sandwiches make up the top and bottom buns). It was tasty and filling. \n\nWe also ordered the thick-cut onion rings as an appetizer and they were cooked perfectly; fresh and crispy onion filling surrounded by well-cooked breading that gave the whole thing a double layer of crunch. Lovely!\n\nOverall:\n\nPros: \n- Pleasant, homey, and hygienic. Also, a great location.\n- Delicious onion rings.\n- Varied menu items.\n\nCons:\n-Pricey beers.

My husband and I went for dinner on a Friday night with a reservation. Upon arrival we waited about 20 minutes or so for our table. Given the rainy evening, folks were taking a bit longer to depart which I can understand. We were seated and greeted by a super friendly server who made on point recommendations when asked. I always appreciate when you ask a server for their top recommendation for an appetizer and entree and they can answer without hesitation. Drives me crazy when the response is 'everything is good.' Kudos to her for firing away. We ordered both recommendations, the crab dip to start and then as entrees the steak frites and honey fried chicken. Both were very tasty! The steak seemed somewhat chewy but the chicken was melt in your mouth good with great crunchy texture to start with a delicious hint of honey. We finished with coffees and the peanut butter pie which was rich and creamy and certainly not needed! It was overall a great experience. Staff were friendly and welcoming and we never felt rushed.

It was impossible to have any conversation except with those seated adjacent & then only if leaning in. The crab cakes were much too salty. The portion of steak that came with the Steak Frittes was much too small for the value. The beer muscle pot was outstanding. The tuna entree was very thinly sliced but not overcooked. It's pairing with tomato and black beans didn't really work. The jambalaya was terrific as were all the desserts esp. the key lime pie.

Fantastic dining experience! Amazing food, highly attentive staff. Management goes above and beyond to make sure you are well taken care of. Nobody does it like Farmer Fishers Bakers. You will not regret coming to this restaurant! Perfect place to impress your out of town guests, or, to just grab a drink with some friends for a casual for Happy hour. Brunch is a must! Maribel the General Manager is the best in DC. She sets the bar high, and out does all of the surrounding competition. Don't make the wrong mistake by dining somewhere else.

This is one of our go-to restaurants in Georgetown. The location and view at Georgetown Harbour are great, the place is usually packed, and the menu is extensive and varied. A large menu can have disadvantages, as they can't be great at everything, but there are a lot more hits than misses here. I appreciate the large vegetarian menu they have, even though this is still a small part of the overall menu. I also love the selection of 8-Buck Salads, most of which can be a meal by themselves. They have several great appetizers -- sometimes I come here for a mid-afternoon snack, just to order the great onion rings or the 'bread and broth.' Fish is good too. And I've just scratched the surface. It is pretty loud, though, and it can be hard to get a table without a reservation.

I absolutely love brunch at Farmers Fishers Bakers. The buffet spread is always amazing (my favorite is the grapefruit brûlée), and this visit did not disappoint. My only 'but' is that the service was pretty slow this time. It took at least 10 minutes for our server to make his first appearance, the specially baked (and wonderful) cinnamon rolls weren't delivered until after we'd had our fill at the buffet (whereas they're usually the earliest things to get to the table), and we were only offered two specialty items despite spending over an hour at the table. Regardless, the food was awesome. I love this place. I'm hoping the slow service was just a fluke, as the service is usually exceptional. You can bet I'll be back again!

The artichoke crab dip was great, but there didn't seem to be much crab. And the cedar plank salmon left much to be desired.

This is my go-to place to bring out-of-town guests because there's a wide variety of food items to choose from. Among my highly recommended dishes for the weekend brunch (about $30/person pre-tax+tip): Kale salad; pulled pork; whatever that corn crepe thing is; pineapple rice pudding; peanut butter cake. \n\nOn my two most recent trips, however, I've encountered 'bad' staff. In the first instance, the waiter changed my 22 percent tip to 38 percent (which I likely wouldn't have caught without my credit card company sending me an email about a 'generous tip'). The company called me immediately to change it back to 22 percent, but still, even in my worst handwriting, a $13.02 tip looks nothing like $25.00. \n\nIn the second instance, my friends and I went at 10 a.m., which was not yet the 'busy time' (TIP: Go before 11 a.m. when it gets really, really busy). Our waiter was nowhere to be seen for 10 minutes, then looked visibly upset when he had to bring us water and take our drink order. \n\nI'm going to chalk these experiences up to a bad day for these folks -- I have been many times before and rarely had an issue with staff members. But anyway, Farmers, Fishers, and Bakers is lucky that the food tastes so good, otherwise I'd probably consider going back based solely on these recent encounters with the staff.

I didn't realize before arriving that FFB is a buffet-style brunch. The food is still very fresh, warm and delicious but on a busy Saturday morning/afternoon serving yourself can get a bit hectic.

As a regular customer for the past 3 years, I must say the consistency I used to experience here has gone downhill. It used to be that when I ordered certain items (my 'regular' orders) I'd know exactly what I was getting. That is no longer the case. The tuna salad sandwich I ordered on my last visit was soaked in so much mustard it was almost inedible. I did not mention it to the waiter because he was so slow that it was eating into my lunch hour and I just didn't have time to deal with it. I picked out as much tuna as I could and tossed the bun, which was nearly saturated with mustard. Very disappointing. Onion rings were disappointing too - the batter is way too heavy. My companion's veggie sandwich was good. This place is so convenient to my office but I am leery of patronizing it because it's so hit or miss these days. Wish I could write a better review :(

Large menu with good variety. Food was good but we waited half an hour with reservations. Check in and seating seemed disorganized. Probably seated faster because we complained about waiting and bar charges. Drinks over-priced. Charged 17 dollars for a 'house' bourbon on the rocks, for example. Later found out they had sent an email canceling our reservation because we were no shows! Based on the time, we were there eating our dinner. No one ever apologized or acknowledged our complaints. I'd maybe give them one more chance.

We've eaten at this restaurant twice in recent months before heading to catch a show at the Kennedy Center. Very convenient. However, both times the restaurant was ridiculously loud. We ordered the sliders to start and a pizza to share for our main meal this time, but the food all arrived at the same time. We were very happy with the beer list - specifically finding Boulevard in the options.

We went on a Monday for breakfast/brunch and were unaware that the $29.99/person brunch was the only menu item available. This was extremely expensive for 6 people and most of us just wanted a light breakfast so we were dissatisfied. Knowing this, would not return for breakfast/brunch.

Awesome Experience. Without a doubt this was the best service I've experienced in the DMV in an extremely long time. The service was spectacular and made us look around to see if a camera was recording it all. Manager Steven and waitress Chelsea were very attentive, extremely pleasant, and determined to make our brunch experience a memorable one. This Tag Team (Steven and Chelsea) assured our table that we would still have the brunch experience even though the end of brunch was quickly approaching as we were being seated. \nGreat Food. Our table enjoyed a wide variety of flavorable dishes to include vegetarian. Lots of tasty dishes and all served fresh and hot - even with a buffet style setup. AND let's not forget dessert. We ate so well we almost didn't have space for dessert and had so many dessert options to choose from. I would recommend Farmers Fishers Bakers for brunch a thousand times!

The food was incredible but our server was definitely rude. When we were closing out, we gave him cash for the check. We waited, expecting him to bring back our receipt and our change. Fifteen minutes pass and we see him giving checks back for other tables, but not ours. He passes our table multiple times. We realized he definitely wasn't planning on bringing our money back. We flagged him down to ask if he was bringing our receipt and change back. He said he didn't think we wanted it, which I find pretty ridiculous. Our change was a decent amount and it seemed like he was just trying to pocket the cash for himself without us noticing. The very least we should have received was a receipt and the fact that this waiter left and expected we would not want one is ridiculous. Any establishment ever will provide you with a receipt. Love the food here, but this was honestly a very strange and unprofessional experience.

Food inconsistent. Scallops were great, as was the burger. Pizza lacked cheese, despite what the menu described and steak was tough to the point of being inedible.

I have always loved my time at FFB. So I brought some out of town folks and we had a series of unfortunate events happen. First, we were told three different times that your buffet brunch ended so we were misinformed and therefore missed it. Second, even with a reservation and plenty of empty tables we were seated late. Third, while waiting we tried getting drinks at the bar, both bartenders were incompetent and could not make the cocktails listed on the menu. Two drinks were received and two were never made. Lastly, we ordered our food but was very disappointed by your 'Big Crispy Tenders' as they were three tiny pieces of meat. I have seen more meat in a kids meal than what was on that plate. My friends were very disappointed so it was sad to have it happen at such an awesome space.

Really nice hostess. Clueless waiter. Mediocre food. Greasy calamari - tuna poke was awful with some disgusting dressing. The fish seemed of high quality so not sure why it would be drenched in the awful dressing but I guess that's a matter of taste. A couple helpful staff members did come by when noticing we were not getting good service. So that was good. But the waiter had clearly not been trained. I ordered Bombay on the rocks and he did not know that is probably the most popular brand of gin. That's simply poor staff training. Food was served sporadically. I was very bummed that we went here and will be asking the hotel to stop recommending it.

We've been here before for good meals. This was all disappointment. The calamari was uneatable because too salty. The steak frite medium rare arrived raw. The frites were either soggy or burned. We actually sent it back and they replaced it ... with a well done dry over cooked steak frite and cold fries. At that point it's 11:30 ok and we don't want to wait for a replacement. The only redeeming item was a slice of cake / wonderful! I was a little surprising see the manager didn't offer to discount the meal at least by the slice of cake. I'm afraid it was an expensive and unenjoyable evening.

THis was our second visit to FFB and service this time was weird. Right after appetizer they changed to a new waitress while our guy I guess moved to other tables. Drinks were not refilled and we had to return and exchange the Garden Campari pizza, it was a dry mess. The Brussels pizza was much better. But we didn't get it until everyone else was done eating. Drinks, both alcoholic and not, took forever to get to the table. I,love the food here, but pick up on service! We were a party of eight with four kids, so, would have appreciated a quicker experience. Regardless, will give it another try as we do love the food..just don't get that Campari pizza, gazpacho was amazing, and the usual fried chicken was great, just need to work on serving. Was really early, our reservation was at 4 and still took forever.

I had brunch at Farmers Fishers for my birthday. While the food was amazing and the service was great, the restaurant could hardly keep up with the large crowd at the buffet.

We were looking forward to trying Farmers Fishers Bakers after being very pleased with three separate visits to Founding Farmers. I don't typically give negative reviews, but I was a bit disappointed. Our first mistake may have been making reservations for a Saturday night when we could only expect the restaurant to be packed and noisy. That said, I was not very impressed with our appetizers and salads, which took a long time to be delivered and arrived with indications that they'd been sitting out for a while. Our entrees were okay, but nothing special. There are other seafood restaurants in the area that I've enjoyed much more. It's a nice location, and the interior design is very interesting. We'll probably try this place again on a less busy night sometime.

I hate to do it, but I was left extremely disappointed by FFB this time and likely won't return for anything other than First Bake. We had a reservation but still waited half an hour to be seated, being seated well behind walk-ins that arrived behind us. They have a gentleman restocking glasses who has to wheel them through the waiting area. I saw him ram the cart into no less than four people. Logistically, it's a nightmare having him come through the dining area. I saw patrons have to dodge servers and servers generally showed a lack of care for others in the restaurant. Food was fine but nothing exciting or the quality of what I've encountered in past dining experiences with FF/FFB. FFB now has a vibe of glorified sports bar with fewer TVs. To end the night, a patron was having an episode in the restroom. She was eventually wheeled out by paramedics but before so, the staff took her half consumed drink for her to finish in the restroom. Liability wise, probably not the wisest choice.

We all got $8 salads... me the pear, cauliflower with fried shrimp, friend, the Brussel sprouts with blue cheese and Pork Belly which was AWESOME. Oddly enough, both came mixed with iceberg lettuce. I would have liked more of the ingredients that were listed in the menu description, but the lettuce was crisp and fresh. We each had craft sodas which are a real treat! I'd go back for sure!

Not many places serving brunch on a Saturday morning, and FFB got generally good reviews, so we thought it might be a good post-Christmas treat. Wow, how wrong we were. The ambiance and location were great (good views of the river and ice skating rink), but the food wasn't. Where to begin.... none of the food was labeled, so unless it was obvious what it was or what was in it, you were flying blind. Two versions of egg scrambles, both cold, and no way to tell what was in either one. A dish that looked very much like scalloped potatoes ended up tasting like fish, so who knows what that was. Fried chicken cold (but not supposed to be). At 'brunch' (before 10am), pizza came around 5 times and eggs Benedict only once - 35 minutes after we started eating. Hot chocolates were served cold. It appeared that the brunch scene started picking up around 10:15 or 10:30, so maybe by arriving before that we were subjected to the food that was placed out at the beginning of service at 9am and then ignored until it needed to be replaced. Sad, because at over $30 per person, we would have gotten a better meal at a local cafe for a quarter of the cost. Won't be going back.
