Horrible experience. Our reservation was not honored. We arrived on time with our party of 6 complete at 1300z They told us to wait a few minutes. Then, at 1315 I asked if our table was ready, and then they told us that people were paying but not wrapping up. This went on for another 10 mins. They did not offer a solution until I started complaining. Then they gave us a horrible table. Our 8 year old was starving so we accepted. No discount no extra care. This is basic restaurant management. When you have a table booked your inform the customers that they have to leave. They simply didn’t care to honor our reservation. Unacceptable.

Karim, you are SO right- we dropped the ball here, and I am SO sorry we failed to not only have you accommodated on time, but also failed to make this right prior to your departure. :( I would love the chance to hopefully turn this around if it's not too late! I will be sending you a DM with my email address to connect further. -Amy

I've been coming to Fisher's Farmer now for years, it's my place to go over the weekends, my reservations was for two and 1:15. The young lady that received me and my girl started the sad experience. She made me and my girl feel as if we were begging to be taken care of. Then friends of her's came in right after and they were greeted as they were from the Royals. 1:00pm came around and then 1:10 and I was told to go and wait outside, now I understand the COVID restrain, but two couples that reservation was 1:30 and I asked was seated before 1:15, I think we will wait until COVID is over before returning, terrible experience. Lol...

It was a great atmosphere to have Thanksgiving dinner but the menu was disappointing. Not at all what we expected. We chose traditional Turkey dinner which was alright but we thought that’s we would have other options. Turned out to be a nice outing anyway. Sometimes the company is more important than the food..this was that instance. The service was exceptional

This review is for the Thanksgiving meal. The turkey and ham did not have any taste. The fried chicken was good. The sides were good and the desserts were delicious. Unfortunately, though, most of our family got the turkey and ham, which was tasteless.

I dined at Farmers Fishers and Bakers for Thanksgiving. I had the vegan meal which was very disappointing. I was told I could not get the regular side of stuffing and sweet potato because everything was pre-portioned and it would be up to the Chef to decide if I could have it. It was very unfortunate to find this out after I received my meal. This should have been told to us upon making the reservation.

Hi VeganT: I am super sorry for the confusion surrounding your order, and we appreciate you letting us know this happened. :( You made a good point- it's a worthwhile idea to have additional sides available to order and we will take this into account for next year. Thank you for letting us know this, and we really hope you'll try again in the future- please call us: 202-298-8783 for any reservation help needed. -Amy

This place is amazing. Every time I go here I feel like a VIP. Service, food, experience is always amazing. I love to bring friends from out of town here. Kendra the GM is exceptionally amazing. She always makes a point to speak with every table and make sure everything is great. Please try this place!

Really delicious Thanksgiving meal! The only minor downside was the table location. It was an outside table on a gorgeous autumn day, but there was little outdoor ambiance. The table was squeezed between the winter tent and the restaurant windows near the service door. There was a pretty constant stream of wait staff and food delivery drivers walking by. But the food was the star and the service was excellent!

Tables unclean looking; no ambiance except water fountain that is not part of restaurant; prime rib .... the skinniest piece of meat I have ever had ! Way overpriced.
Didn’t clear appetizer/ salad dishes and they arrived with main courses... no where to put them . Poorly staffed. Andres our waiter lovely but seemed not able to manage wait staff.
Very disappointed in prime rib. Do not order.

The food was very good, the price was good, but the service was very disappointing . The server were very slow with drink orders and couldn’t remember our request. Some of the food orders came out wrong. The restaurant was not busy. I just didn’t understand.

Service was horrible. It wasn't peak brunch time yet, and it took almost 20 mins just to get water. The server on the buffet line was absolutely rude. Rushed me thru the line and showed annoyance when I asked what a dish was. I mean seriously? I wanted to sample more food, but apparently for her I was done. Will NEVER go back there.

Brunch has been a different experience since Covid, but they’re adjusting and making it work. Staff is really professional and helpful and the food is still great... you just can’t get it yourself and fix your plate how you want it. Love the tents they’ve set up with the heat lamps. The birds are still a nuisance, but entertaining at the same time. Not sure why they’re the only restaurant at the harbor with this Covid surcharge. Seems a bit much to add on fees to people that are also having to adjust financially during these times, but still trying to support your business at the same time. I hope they rethink that. The drinks are pricey enough... but delicious.

Farmers Fishers Bakers is one of my favorites (Farmers & Distillers #1 fave). My table consisted of 3 people one of whom recently relocated to the DC area and has never been to the restaurant.

I love the restaurant, and the food. The issue I had was with our server. I think he may have been a manager which honestly makes me having to write this review about the person that served us a little aggravating.

It took him approximately 5 minutes to come to our table. We order 2 bloody mary's and he was checking to the price of something I asked for before I committed to order it. We went to get our food and he answered my question and I placed my drink order.

It took approximately 12 - 15 minutes before we received our drink orders. While eating and looking for our server - I figured he was of a management capacity because he was all over the restaurant checking tables and doing other "managerial" tasks. I've been to this restaurant enough times to know that at some point a server comes to each table with other items that weren't on the menu or on the buffet. Those servers walked past our table SEVERAL times without stopping. After several minutes were got our servers attention to ask for those items. They arrived approximately 10 - 12 minutes later.
I noticed that another party of 2 was seated across from us and IMMEDIATELY they were waiting on, they received their beverages quickly. While they were @ the buffet getting food the first time - the other server left a few items (that aren't on the menu or buffet) BEFORE they asked and BEFORE they returned to their table.
This didi not sit well with me. The server came to our table one time with fried shrimp, and a cold slice of pizza.
Not cool

Brunch food was ok, not worth the price. Server was absent the whole time, had to ask multiple times for an item since the beggining of being there and refills, never received the refills and the item arrived when we were ready to leave. Havent tried the dinning but the brunch is not worth it.
