The restaurant is upscale casual, which welcomes business casual dress, and dress that would be appropriate in a nice restaurant; this includes jeans and athletic wear, and warm-weather clothing, including shorts.
Went for a friends birthday and we were seated within 15 minutes! The food was amazing but my portion was incredibly small :/
Steak tasted burnt. Nice area
Good food and atmosphere!
To long wait to get your table . Make reservations 7 pm but go there 8 pm . Maybe table is gone be ready . Food ok . Drink price high . To noise .
Our server Diego was excellent. He was super friendly, personable and attentive without being over bearing. He seemed knowledgeable and positive. Overall, he definitely contributed to a positive experience. Cocktails and food were great as well.
The only thing better than my perfectly cooked and tasty ribeye, was the quality of the stories my date told. Plus, she wasn’t too bad on the eyes either. Oh, and the Sazerac cocktail was quite tasty as well.
Great food, and a large menu with fun cocktails. Great location by the river with outdoor seating if it’s nice. Restaurant was lively on a weeknight and we had great service!
Restaurant was dirty (visible chunks of dust on table surfaces we were sitting right next to). Food was okay. Ambience was like red lobster.
We take our youth group each year when visiting DC.
Great, but our reservations was for 7:30pm and we weren't seated until 8:10pm...fine because they gave us free appetizers which were ready immediately when we sat down. BUT the point of making a reservation is not having to wait and this is not the first time I made a reservation and had to wait forever. Then again the food is so phenomenal its hard to complain.
We had a reservation at 7:15 pm, were on time but got seated at 7:45 pm after being told that the wait will be around 10 minutes.
I ordered the mussels with garlic and wine, the amount of black pepper on it was ridiculous! Way to much!
My kids got the chicken tenders and did not want them. I found out why when I got home... they were spicy!
However, my mom got the eye of ribeye which was very good.
Our waitress was nice but not present. Not there to take our deserts order, not there to give us the check.
Overall, not a bad place but I don’t feel like going back.
Good location and a lot of variety in the menu. Good affordable prices but it’s really crowded and noisey. The servers are overwhelmed and take a lot of time to get back or simply jusy forget what you asked them. I had their impossible burger, I wouldn’t try it again even though it looked like a beef patty but it surely didn’t taste like one.
Corn taco shells were painful, fish tacos were impossible to physically eat. Taste/flavors were fantastic. Hummingbird cake was so sweet it hurt teeth to eat. Atmosphere was Dani, food was pricey. Service was good.
We had a great time celebrating a family Birthday. Food and service were great.
We went for Sunday brunch on 03/17/19 and when we got there we went to the bar to wait. The bartender was preparing drinks right in front of us and saw us come up however never once acknowledged our presence. We waited 30 minutes trying to see if she would at least say "Hi" or "Be right with you" or at the very least a welcoming smile but nothing. Her face seemed she was upset obviously anyone starts feeling that their burdening her with their presence. Finally I said hello and that we were thirsty and she responded she knew, and that once she is done with preparing her drinks she would be with us. The food and drinks were great, the service from that bartender-awful. I did not tip her. A simple smile or welcome gesture could have gone a long way for her that day.
The location, food and atmosphere of this place is great. We had a reservation at 1:30 for brunch but wasn't seated until nearly 2pm. The last seating for brunch his at 2pm and they start taking the food away (or not replacing with fresh dishes) by 3-3:15pm so know that if you get the late seating.
I made a reservation on OpenTable for 1:30 p.m. the brunch buffet (and confirmed the day before through OpenTable as well); I showed up on time and checked in with the host. They kept promising we'd be next, but we got fed up. It is apparent they double- or triple-book their restaurant; the waiting areas were so packed that you felt like you were on the subway. There was no apology for the wait and the overall attitude was one of "you should consider yourself lucky to even be here." After waiting over 30 minutes to be seated, seeing that the brunch buffet would be over at 2 p.m., and that there was barely any food left (on the buffet), my party and I left.
Was there January 2018. It was superb. Returned Sunday 3.17.19 with my son for his 52d birhtday and was very dissapointed. Food either undercooked, ie eggs and thick bacon, or overcooked like shrimp that was passed instead of delivered to your table and very hard to come by. My son had wanted chocolate cake for dessert and you ran out at 12:15 pm. In all very disappointed.
Really good food and drinks! A great restaurant option for vegetarians/ those seeking non-meat options.
Manager was so kind. Acknowledged the wait and kindly gave us a couple of appetizers. She checked in on us and made sure we were satisfied. Food was great as always.
When I read the reviews, many people commented that they were seated late. We had a 7:00 pm reservation and when we arrived, they told us that they had just started seating the 6:30 pm reservations. Needless to say, we didn't get a table until 7:45. There was nowhere to sit and we had been out all day, so that wasn't the best. Once we sat down, the service was excellent and the food was good. I had a fabulous Tuna Poke salad. Delicious! If you're in a hurry, don't go! If you don't mind waiting 45 minutes for a table, you won't be disappointed with your meal.
It was a good experience overall. Had to wait a few extra minutes for a reserved table. The reception seemed a bit chaotic with groups of people loitering around the entrance. It was a bit less chaotic in the dining area, but very tight. I honestly can’t believe fire codes allow it. Consequently, it is very loud. Don’t expect to have any level of privacy or deep conversations here.
I had BBQ ribs which were quite good. The peanut side slaw was tasteless, but thought the fries were good. My wife’s fish tacos were strangely crispy and stale. Almost seemed like someone tried to heat them up to give them a second life. Overall the food was less than expected for the price. The last time we came here was loud and crowded, but at least the food was worth it. Not this time, I don’t see us going back anytime soon.
Delicious food, amazing cocktails, and great service from our waiter Chris.
Service was sub-par. The drinks came out 10 minutes after the appetizer came out. Also, I couldn’t order any sandwiches because they “ran out of sandwich buns”. Overall I would not recommend.
Great place and food! Muscles are incredible.
Great round table for 6 - table side guacamole was delicious and perfect to split for 6 - you can get the fried fish tacos with the fish grilled!! Loved the combination of flavors!!
Very soggy french fries. Very good impossible burger but had to wait a very very long time for requested mustard
This place has a good schtick (try not to create a lot of trash, recycle stuff, buy locally etc.) but has the feel of a tourist place. The waterfront location feels kind of depressing, especially compared to the waterfront in SW DC, a much, much nicer spot. What we did love was our first try of the IMPOSSIBLE BURGER. Just delicious and perfectly prepared. That was the only thing we might go back for. The accompanying cabbage looked old and a strange color. Oh, and the freshly brewed tea was also very good. Still, it is a very popular place and was packed, so they must be doing something right.
We sat outside and enjoyed a nice lunch. A fun place for lunch and would go back again.
I usually love this place. Idk where they went wrong. I had a late weeknight reservation and was seated late despite showing up early. There were two window tables and we were crammed to the side. The server ignore my table for the first 12 minutes. Forgot my steak knife. Never checked to see if everything was fine. That was all within their control.
Not in their control: the rowdiest group of older men next to me. Ear piercing cackles. I’m glad they were having a good time, at least someone was.
I’d expect this failure of service during brunch or on a weekend evening. Not on a Thursday.
Top service, great menu but too much noise. On time
All of the members of the dinner party thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. The energy in the restaurant was infectious and added to the overall rewarding experience. The only thing that I would have made the experience more perfect was to have a bit lower noise level.
Service was very slow. Server didn’t explain the meal options well. Took at least 45 minutes to get our first drink. We enjoyed to food.
Food was very good. Service was very good as well . Would go again. Disappointed with drinks - overloaded with ice and I’m not even sure they put the liquor in. I would go to eat but not order drinks. This was true for both drinks we ordered.
FFB is one of my favorites restaurants ! Was super busy, loud and poor service tonight. Definitely not the quality of service I have had in the past. Very poor explanation of the specials or items we asked additional details. Sevice was slow. Salads came before the appetizer. Long delay in the meal service and no follow up from wait staff to keep us informed.
Excellent spot on the water with diverse menu to satisfy everyone in your group.
We had to wait 15 mins before seeing our server, the server was so missing that we had to rely on bussers and food runners to get basic things, we received the drinks midway through the entree, and had to ask for cutlery after the food arrived. Not even the quality of the food could overcome the service.
The service at this spot was really good, but the food was just greasy, flavorless, and sortof gross (sorry!). The idea is wonderful, and the place was crowded and active, but I got the pork tacos and they tasted like bland white cheese. Really no flavor, and I'm not talking just a lack of spice, but a lack of any flavor at all. My son got a hamburger with grilled cheeses as the bun (he didn't really get what it was when he ordered it) and both of the grilled cheese sandwiches were soggy to the point of dripping. The whole meal for all 4 of us was something we talked about being sad about as we headed home. Sorry, as it seems like all were making an effort, but just not good.
Service and food we're great. The noise level is pretty high but that's the only drawback. Our server was on top of everything and the food was flavorful with lovely presentation.
I used to love this place. The food has gone downhill and is Not worth the price per person. They don’t even offer orange juice with brunch. You have to pay extra. Also the food was horrible with no seasoning. The berth was the biscuit and jam. Other than that I’ll pass.
