I've been to the other chains. This is smaller and there might be a wait but the food is better than most chains. The banana foster waffle is the best waffle ever and we didn't use the real maple syrup. Yes they have syrup from a maple tree instead of flavored sugar syrup. They cook eggs to your request and...

I have been to First Watch in different states, including this location. All prior visits featured good service and great food. There were nine of us arriving at 10:30 AM. We expected a wait, but this was hard to understand, because there were many empty tables. Our server took our order fairly quickly. Then came the odd part. Several minutes... More

First Watch is only open for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast---omelets, pancakes, pastries, meats and pure joy. Lunch is mostly good--sandwiches, salads, soups---although prep and service are a bit sketchy as it gets close to closing the lunch time. Kid friendly, always packed--try it!

I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the sandwich I got here. Coupled with the helpful service and the availability of several types of juices to drink instead of the usual soda fountain choices, I'm going to stop here again whenever I'm nearby at lunch time.

We have been to First Watch a few times now, and I'm not really sure why everyone loves it so much. Our friends kept recommending that we try it after we moved to within walking distance of the place. Every time we have gone the service is very slow, and the food is no better than IHOP, Bob Evans, etc.... More

We were familiar with First Watch because of another location in Fairfax near the Cinema Arts theaters. We really enjoy that restaurant and were excited that a First Watch was going to be in our area. After eating a the restaurant twice now, we prefer the original location.

This is the second time we've come here. The first wasn't that great and we hesitated to come back. But it was early on a snowy Sunday morning and there wasn't much else open. We were presently surprised. We had to wait about 10min to get a table but the staff were friendly. The table is way too cluttered. It... More
