“Amazing Breakfast/Brunch”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I discovered First Watch last year, but always ignored it because it looks like an old people's home on the outside. My friend made me try it and now we all go regularly because the food is amazing. They use high quality, fresh ingredients and have many lighter fare options. The pancakes and hash dishes are always wonderful!

“Come hungry”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

I really enjoyed the meals served at the first watch. The pancakes are huge and good tasting. The meals are well prepared and delicious. It is clean and the staff and waiters are friendly. I recommend this place and will return. They are open for breakfast and lunch only.

“My Go-to Restaurant in Fairfax”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Since I prefer healthy but tasty cuisine, there are not that many local restaurants that I really like, but First Watch is one of them. If you plan to come for lunch, try to come a little early, as this is a popular place. Craig Herberg

“First Watch - First for Your Tastebuds”
Reviewed January 28, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This place is all about simple -- and excellence. The decor is simple, clean and fresh. The servers are friendly, attentive and don't hover nor nudge. All, and I repeat ALL of the food is fresh and on the healthy side. Special requests are met with friendly compliance. Tim, the Manager, runs an incredibly smooth operation. The cooking is consistent and good. The staff are marvelous. And, the restaurant itself is always clean and neat. Hopefully, the corporate executives have hidden cameras to find out the secret of this success. My only qualm with this review is that it will become more crowded.
