"Our 2nd time at Founding farmers.This place is always jumping, and with good reason.Everything is done well and locally sourced. Our group had soups, crabs cakes, ravioli, chicken pot pie ,some inventive drinks and an awesome red velvet cake ! (Hugh). The menu can be a little confusing but the wait staff does a good job explaining. Overall great setting, good location-near metro. Make sure you have a reservation. You will enjoy!"

Established in 1856, Old Ebbitt Grill is the oldest dining saloon in Washington, DC. Across from the White House, Old Ebbitt serves American Cuisine, and offers the largest selection of oysters in DC. Open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night dining, and Saturday and Sunday Brunch. Casual dining with service to locals and visitors alike.

"This was our fourth time dining at the Old Ebbitt. This restaurant is a DC icon. Despite the fact that it has become a huge tourist attraction, the food and the service is as wonderful as ever. We had an 8 pm reservation and we were seated promptly.Our servers were prompt and attentive . The menu is a good mix of offerings and reasonably priced . My wife and Son and I had different entrees and all were excellent.
The only drawback was very high noise level. Tables in most areas are open to the bar areas. In our instance it made conversation almost impossible. But it is a beautiful setting with great food. I recommend the experience.
