I've dined here many times. The last time was not ideal. We had extremely loud neighbors which made it difficult to hear my dining companion. Service was spotty as we were not checked up on by our server (whose shift seemed to end during our lunch). It took me over 10 minutes to get someone's attention to get the check and my dining companion had to leave at that point. I'll go back, but more attention should be given to make sure restaurant is right-staffed during busy hours.

The place is all hard surfaces. When we walked in there was a rather loud couple of the bar and you could hear them throughout the entire restaurant. I ordered the Ketel One on the rocks it took 20 minutes to arrive to my table and the ice was half melted. We were the bar burgers and they came without any garnish whatsoever. For 18 bucks you want to get lettuce and tomato without asking for it. The food was tasty, but we won’t be returning

We had to ask for condiments for burgers after they arrived getting cold. Also, we had to ask hostess for water refills which is all we were drinking. It was quiet because we were 2 of a total of 6 customers at noon on a Saturday. Food is very overpriced for what you receive. Better burgers around the corner at the Ainsworth.

When in New York you expect inflated prices however this establishment has good food with exorbitant prices. I would not come here again - gourmet pub food for fine dining pricing.

We were delighted with our experience at Blue Ribbon Feseral Grill. Attentive server explained specials- we ordered tuna poke in an avocado. However, the fries chicken is absolutely the best I ever tasted. Crispy, sweet and spicy on the bbn outside. Melt in your mouth moist on the inside. So yummy. A glass of very nice rose. A Greek salad and good to go. Two of us shared all of the above and were duly satisfied. Cannot wait to fo back.

I was there for dinner, but I've heard the brunch is better. Dinner was just ok. In a city with so many choices, a restaurant needs to stand out to get repeat customers. Federal Grill does not stand out.
There were absolutely no entrees or sandwiches appropriate for the vegetarian in our group. Maybe add a pasta dish to accommodate.

We were there for an early lunch during the week. Very pleasant spot. We were seated near the large windows, which made for a nice view. The market salad was a large plate of a variety of nicely fresh vegetables, and the Greek salad was excellent. Lots of olives and chunks of well seasoned, properly cooked hanger steak. Service was pleasant and it wasn't noisy.

Overall a good experienced, we enjoyed the food and the service was prompt and friendly. I do think the prices all felt higher than other restaurants of the same class in Fidi, so not the best value, but good for a business lunch.

Arrival was great, greeted with a warm welcome and it made me think this is going to be a good night. Initially, server was great too, but the food recommendation was not that good, I did not care so much for my selection. And the service was incredibly slow, we were there for over 3 hours and I won't be returning.

The food was delicious, especially the matzo ball soup and the arctic char, which is always wonderful
The server was very attentive. As I was going to the theater in an hour and a half, he brought all the dishes rapidly. He also managed to get a dessert modified for me so that it would be kosher for Passover.
