Great food. Great service. The social distancing measures in place make The Federal Grill a great place for a business lunch.
Very pleased. A bit loud on the patio but I believe the party near us was really enjoying themselves. We asked to be reseated and voila...no problems at all. We will be back for sure!!!
Kevin took great care of us and the manager stopped over to check on us. Everything was great and I will be back soon.
Great service and food
Food was delicious value was awesome
Absolutely delicious. We ordered off the restaurant week menu and there was a wonderful variety to please everyone.
Great service. Delicious food.
Went for Houston Restaurant Weeks. The fried oyster appetizer and tuna poke were great. The short ribs were outstanding! Service was first class
Any seafood we ordered was amazing. My husband ordered the chicken fried steak, he didn't care for the loaded potato so much. Amazing service, we will be back!
I have never been disappointed at this restaurant. The service is always great as is the food. Additionally, their table setup/placement during this pandemic makes sense!! I have made this my go to place.
It was a nice evening out
It was VERY hot in the restaurant. We asked multiple times to check on the AC. We all left drenched in sweat. It is always warm in the dining room, but tonight it was at least 85 degrees in the restaurant. Acknowledging there is a problem with the AC would help. But when every waiter is dripping in sweat and multiple tables are leaving and complaining about the temperature is a problem.
Fantastic food and amazing service. Can’t go wrong coming here!
Decided to take a client to Federal for brunch. Warm greeting on arrival and great table in the back room where it's a little quieter. The mimosas were great and we both had the brunch chicken fried steak platters. Really great! Our waitress was super nice and even brewed fresh coffee for after....then a surprise complimentary hot brownie and ice cream! I felt like they went out of their way with their service experience. Definitely will go back soon ---
Wonderful food and service. Plan to come again.
Service is ALWAYS excellent here. Will continue to frequent this specific location.
Great first experience, I did find it alittle noisy but overall the service was amazing, the food was great, and a atmosphere was super cool. Would go back! Plus there are so many goodies I'd love to try on the menu!
Great service - thanks for the complimentary dessert!
I have been going to the Federal Grill for 8 years and their food is always the best.
As always great service and great food!
Overall great atmosphere, food, service everything. Super impressed.
Everything we ordered was outstanding!! Oysters and scallops are a must try!!
We love, love, love this place. Everything is always perfect and portions are big enough to share.
Food was great!! Service on point and great safety protocols!
Once again, this place NEVER stops amazing me! Food was AMAZING! Service was OFF the charts! Can't wait for Dining-In to open up again! LOVE THIS PLACE!
Everything was great about this. Except it was surprising to see that waiters and hosting staff were not wearing masks especially when Harris County issued the orders for all businesses to have masks for this week of Jun 22-28, 2020.
I will feel more safe and encouraged if mask policy was followed.
We went to The Federal Grill to celebrate Father’s Day. It was very disconcerting to walk in and see none of the staff wearing face masks. As healthcare professionals, my wife and I both recognize the importance of masks, hand washing, and social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We should have turned around and left, but chose not to make a scene. The food and drinks were okay and our server was attentive, but the lack of concern management displayed for public health detracted from everything else. There are too many excellent restaurants in the Houston area which do follow the guidelines for safe dining to patronize those which don’t. We will not be returning to The Federal Grill.
I absolutely love the food at this restaurant but was very disappointed in their lack of regard for any social distancing. I find it very disrespectful and very unsafe. Tables were super packed together and the waitstaff didn’t not wear masks. I will not be returning. This is a blatant disregard of the Harris county laws!!!
This was my first visit I was pleasantly pleased. Food was great, ambiance was inviting, staff was friendly.
Will definitely be back.
I am completely disturbed by the lack of compliance and consideration for the community. There was no protocol to protect the customers during the Pandemic. No one wore a mask not even employees and people were not distanced by any means. It appears that all recommendations and ordinances were disregarded. This is the only resturant I have visited during this time that made no effort for the safety of their customers or employees. The food was subpar as well. I will not be revisiting this establishment.
Excellent food and service time after time ... our go-to place for every occasion.
Was seated at a high bar table by the bar. Asked for table in main room and they were so accommodating and understanding. Got a table in main room which was so much better. Still a little noisy but the scenery is nice. Food excellent and I can’t say enough good things about the service and attention. We will be back and tell our friends.
As always, the food was delicious. The service was top-notch. The selection of whiskeys was impressive. However, the noise made it very difficult to have a conversation. (I suspect this was the intent of the designer.) The only thing that troubled us was the complete lack of social distancing and absence of facemasks. I think I saw only one or two of the staff wearing facemasks when we arrived (none when we left) and I don’t think I saw any of the patrons wearing face-masks. This despite an order from the county judge that was to go in effect two days later. Despite the overall good impression, we will probably not go back until they make some improvements in their efforts to stop the spread of the virus.
