Food is too oily and salty. Doesn't taste as the same value as the appearance.

I took my 5 and 9 year old to brunch. We had a lovely time- very kind staff, amazing food and so nice to know everyone is vaccinated. The french toast and pimento cheese and rigatoni pastas and bacon dishes were incredible!

It was our first time back to Farmers and Distillers since the onset of the pandemic. Distillers is a little bit different than the other Founding Farmers Restaurants in that it has an expanded menu including unique things giving a nod to its location in Chinatown.

I can honestly say this location has done a complete turnaround from prior experiences. ALL of our food was great. Special shout out to the sweet potato spring rolls as those are straight candy. Thank you to bar tenders Cesar and Manny for wonderful service and manager Caleb for always finding ways to make the ordinary extraordinary. Kudos all around.

The staff was great, the Chips & Dips were tasty. I was not a fan of the Dandan. But the stuffed creme brulee cro-nut was delish.
