    There is nothing bad I can say about this restaurant. From the time I walked in the hostess was extremely friendly and got me right to a table. The server was there immediately and was very friendly and welcoming. The food was amazing and very reasonably priced. This was my first time but it will be a regular for me

    Reservation stated standard seating not high top. Seated us at a high top. Said there were no other tables Sat us directly in front of the doors and the table was too close, so not only was it distracting but the sun was blinding! It was miserable A basic dish like meatloaf was way too spicy. When I didn’t eat it the waiter asked - and didn’t even pretend to care. Plumbers with tools coming into the front door through the dining area was indicative of the experience

    From the hostess stand to the wait staff, the entire experience was wonderful. The food, bourbon selection and dessert was on point. I had the Chilean sea bass and my boyfriend had the bacon wrapped scallops (with bacon on the side). We were surprised with a complimentary brownie a la mode, and needless to say, we cleared the plate. Every dish was cooked to perfection. We plan on returning for Father’s Day.

    Our waiter was outstanding, however, the food itself was average. The cheeseburger in the cheeseburger bowl was overcooked and the chicken alfredo, although nicely cooked, had an unusual tasting alfredo sauce, not what one expects of an alfredo sauce. The Old Fashion cocktail was above average.

    Overpriced for the quality of food, which was extremely salty. Meatloaf was mediocre at best and salmon entrée was the size of a chicken tender at $29.99. It was not only small but overcooked and dry. Staff was friendly and service was fine. However, for a restaurant that wants to bill itself as "fine dining," it probably shouldn't have a plethora of TV screens as though it's also trying to be a sports bar.

    I brought my team here to check this place out for a private event we would like to host. The food was great, but service was very slow. I had to ask for waters to be filled up, and asked to check on our food because it took quite a while and we didn’t order anything difficult, all ordered salads. Ambiance is nice, but service has to get better. This was my second time eating here and I won’t be back soon. The prices deserve good service.

    It was my first time at the restaurant. We waited to be seated even thought we had reservations. It appeared to be shortage of staff to wait and clear tables. The food was okay, but not worth the price. We’ve gotten the same dishes at other close by restaurants that were much better and cost less. The one really wonderful thing was our waitress! She was great!

    The noise level was way too high, thus making it difficult to carry on a conversation. My wife had to send her salad back because it was not prepared correctly. The overall quality of the meals served did not equate to the price charged.

    The hostess Lauren was so amazing. I needed to add 3 people to my reservations and she was so willing to help. Most restaurants hostesses are happy to make you wait another 30 minutes but Federal Grill got us right in…with a kind attitude. Our waitress was amazing too. She remembered us from another visit and even remembered what we ordered. The food was amazing. Chicken sandwich, roasted chicken, omelets and chicken fried chicken. Our experience has been awesome both times we have eaten a Federal Grill in The Woodlands, Tx.
