They were Saints to put up with our drunken mess. We’re paying for it today. Food and service was great.

Our First time dining at the Fed lived up to the Langham reputation. Our server Danny was an absolute delight. The hostess was prompt and friendly, which is such a rarity these days. The seafood apps were impeccably fresh and the cocktails were on point.

The blt lobster sandwich was a disappointment. The lobster salad was a lot of mayonnaise and onion; hard to even find the lobster bits.
The drinks were good.

Came to stay at the Langham for New Year's Eve/my birthday and had dinner at the Fed. Lovely restaurant with great service. Menu was a bit limited, but the hanger steak I ordered and the cod my daughter ordered were perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious! Surprisingly quiet for New Year's Eve, but just a wonderful experience overall.

This was an OK dining experience. Had the steak frites and the fish and chips. Portions were on the smallish size for the price. While both tasted good, it was nothing to rave about.

The bartenders were personable and made stellar drinks, so there is a good reason to come back. The decor was pretty nice and it was not very loud (the place was only half full). Would definitely return for cocktails but probably eat elsewhere.

Nice to have a new neighborhood go-to for a drink or casual bite to eat! Super loud this time, think because of an office event. After all, it is a bar! Salmon salad was delicious. Probably wouldn't order the crispy cod again. Just a massive deep fried glob. Fries were the treat! We will be back and keep making our way through the menu! Thanks.

Both the food and the drinks were delicious and unique. We were there on Halloween weekend, and especially enjoyed a custom-made vegetarian version of the scotch quail egg, using Impossible "meat" - special thanks to chef Dakota! We also loved the XL stovetop three cheese & mustard toastie and the hand pie. The "Hot Ghoul" cocktail (special for Halloween) was also a highlight - not too sweet, with the right amount of bitter, with a slice of dried blood orange and dark maraschino cherries to bring extra sweetness.
All in all, expensive but well worth it!

Way too noisy! Not conducive to enjoying a good meal. Food was Ok but not good value. Service was very good. Menu was limited.

The experience was good, but this is more of a hotel bar that also serves food at tables, rather than a restaurant. There is no front desk to check in at and the tables are more like small bar tables rather than dinner tables. The menu for food is quite limited. Otherwise, service and food quality were great.

The Fed is one of Boston’s best cocktail bars. I frequent it, and I’m never disappointed. The staff and bartenders are genuinely interested in their craft, and the service is beyond expectation. Love this spot. Perfect for a night out with friends, or a romantic drink with a partner.

We were so excited to go back to this hotel and discover the new bar. I work not too far so we decided with my husband that we would go after work. Nice ambiance, decor a little dark to my taste ( I miss the previous Champagne bar and everything was much more opened). Drinks were excellent as well as the service but the menu is super small and the food was just okay:(
We will definitely go back but just for drinks and maybe for diner at Grana ( hopefully the food is better).

First time trying The Fed after reading local reviews. Very nice ambiance and not too loud. Service was a little too rushed but overall attentive. The Fed Up cocktail was really good, for food we definitely enjoyed the New England Stuffies and the lobster chowdah!

The Fed inside the newly renovated Langham is really lovely. It is elegant yet appeals to all. We found the food and the service to be very good and had a wonderful evening catching up with friends.

We didn’t see our server much of the night. Waited 40 minutes to put in a drink order and at that point we only ordered one entree since we were no longer hungry. (We sat at 8pm) Also, the menu doesn’t have a lot to offer other than simple overpriced dishes. At least make the price for a bit more quality and creative entrees. And enhance server training.

We were excited that after a long renovation that The Langham has reopened - the venue of the much loved Cafe Fleuri.

We booked here for dinner but we're disappointed that, in reality, it's a venue for early evening drinks/cocktails and snacks/light faire.

The surroundings are indeed very pleasant and the staff are professional and nicely attentive - also good to see the fabulous bar person from Meritage has landed here.

However, we struggled with the menu for dinner; we went with a (huge) bowl of (very good, very rich) Lobster Chowder ($16), Cod and chips (($36! - the fish was dry and the chips limp) and a burger ($24).

Unfortunately, it is questionable value for money; two cocktails ($17 each) and a glass of wine ($14) plus the food and tax came to ~$133 before the tip.

In fairness to the Langham and to The Fed, they have only been open for a short while and are probably still experimenting with the menu to ascertain what works and what does not - especially given that Downtown Boston is still recovering from Covid.

We will return.
