Seated in a corner table in the bar which was good for people watching. Service was excellent. Just had appetizers and a drink, but calamari was delish. Have eaten there several times. Like their diverse menu and food has always been great.

Service was phenomenal. I don’t remember the gentleman’s name who served us. Very personable and professional. Food was delicious. The braised short ribs melted in your mouth.

My first negative experience from my 10 or so visits. Saturday night obviously isn’t the time to ask for a quiet table! Place was overflowing - so much for social distancing! Service was excellent but food a disappointment- short ribs delivered cold and salmon inedible. To the Manager’s credit he offered another entree and took the salmon off the check and compted a dessert, but overall not up to Federal Grill standards.

Monday lunch special, wagu burger, was amazing and the Double Chocolate Brownie a la mode — oh my!!!
As an aside, the framed sayings in the back hall and bathrooms are MOST entertaining— laughter is good medicine!

First visit to the restaurant and won’t be the last. Attentive service, excellent old fashion. My wife had the crab cake appetizer and salmon. Both excellent. I had a wedge salad and filet.. very good and cooked perfectly. Carrot cake for desert was very good as well. Give it a try.

From the minute you pull up to the Federal American Grill, you and your guests are treated like VIPs. The whole team treats you so well, and they even remember your name/drink/favorites every time. Not too mention some of the best food in town!!!

Server rocked. Tool my elederly mom and nurse out for possiblynour last christ.as dinner together..so i spared no wish un answered on menue. Service was great considering how busy she was. Food was as always spectacular(and a bit expensive).
This part of town desperately needs this exact level of dinning. If it were 5%cheaper i may be able to come more than 3 times a year. But I get quality cost extra and food never dissapoints on quality.
Thank you for a Memorable Christmas with my mom...God willing we will see you again next year.

All respect for this restaurant’s handling over tough year. The food is just right and reasonable. It was lively but you could easily have conversations- rare. New favorite for sure.

The place was crowded which clearly means that many enjoy this restaurant. Second visit paled in comparison to the first (immediately after re-opening from COVID). The cheeseburger eggrolls were OK. Crab cakes were really good. Wedge salad was good but not how I prefer (with blue cheese dressing). Waiter seemed a little gruff and a little miffed when we chose wine by the glass and not an entire bottle.

However, pleased to see this business doing well as they spearheaded getting restaurants opened! Thank you :)

Probably the worst service I have had. You don't expect to be ignored at 5PM on a Thursday. We had to have the Mgr take our order and the waiter never came by again except to drop the check after I had to hunt her down. We spent 200 plus tip and I regret every penny. I will never go back and steer as many people as I can away from this place.

Our waiter took 3 of our plates to clear away before we even had a chance to finish! He did it rapidly & my son even chased him to the kitchen doors, but it was so loud he didn’t hear him. And it was my son’s birthday. We have definitely had better dining experiences at the Federal American Grill! Last night was just not one of them.

Stay away from the chicken tortilla soup. I had indigestion before I even left the restaurant. It tastes like cans of tomatoes and black beans dumped into a pot then sprinkled with tiny bits of chicken with chips and cheese on the top. Lukewarm Yuck. The only bad meal I have had there.
