The Fed was a treat to our senses! Our waitress, Brita, was well-versed in the dishes and beverages. She was cheerful and attentive to us which is service hard to find these days. The taste of the food should earn this chef and restaurant a Michelin star or equivalent award! Bar none the best food/experience in Clarkston and arguably in Oakland County.

Wonderful, wonderful evening at The Fed. We celebrated our 30th anniversary with a nice visit to downtown Clarkston and dinner at The Fed. By the way, if you like mussels there are no better anywhere.

We waited over 20 minutes for our sever to even come to our table. He got our order wrong and the food was just okay for the price. Everything was super salty. My steak was undercooked and cold. We mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and he said he would bring us a birthday dessert with candle but never did. This place’s standards are slipping and unfortunately we just probably won’t return.

The food was amazing, as usual. However one of my forks came out of the napkin roll with food stuck to it. Then my husband unrolled his silverware and one of his forks had food stuck between the tines as well. For the amount of money the food costs here, we shouldn't have to check our silverware before using it.

Food was not great at all.
Had a raw pancake for the kid and then they made another one but not super good. Place is amazing but food is not at all.

Moving from Atlanta to Detroit Metro, The Fed is easily the best place we’ve eaten so far. The food, service, and atmosphere were top notch.

First time, and a wonderful time. We had Roberto as our server, and couldn't have been happier with his attention to detail, and discussing dishes for the evening. The octopus dish was amazing, and I definitely recommend the BBQ carrots as an app. Will return soon!

Did not care for the shellfish pot. Broth was overpowering. Mussels were yummy, clams were sandy and smashed, could not get them out of the shell. Pastas good, Bianco pizza yummy.

I was placed in the back by the kitchen when there were plenty of open tables right when you walk in. I did not think this was good service at all. Almost felt discriminatory

The Fed was “Outstanding”!!! The food was out of this world! We loved the farm to table quality of food along with the staff who were very friendly & true professionals. Our server, Brita, was second to none! She took the time to explain the dishes to us since this was our first time there, as well as suggesting some great recommendations on their Principles. Brita took the time to make sure we enjoyed a true dining experience not just a meal. To top off dinner the the deserts are hand crafted there and Brita has some awesome barista skills so enjoy a cappuccino or a latte to compliment the already pleasurable experience.

We’ve dined here about 3 times. Food is always excellent and our server Sarah was spot on. We ate outside this time. Nice seating area, but it was a bit too loud tonight with all the cement and work trucks going by. We dined at 5:00 pm so maybe this is why all the truck noise was occurring.

This is our fav spot! The server was rude though and it was his way or no way when it came to ordering and how to eat the food. Also, my steak was awful and way over cooked. I ordered MW and there was no pink, the steak was already cut and I couldn’t chew it.

We love to have dinner at The Fed before attending concerts at DTE. This time we split the burger with egg and a pizza - both were delicious, but the burger was hands down the best I’ve ever tasted! We saved room to share a tiramisu (served in a coffee cup - perfect size) and it was a scrumptious end to a fantastic dining experience at The Fed. If you haven’t had the pleasure of dining here - just do it!!

Food was very good with the exception of the truffle fries. The flavor was great, but the fries themselves are small little bits, like the ones left at the end of a batch that got gathered together and served. Other than that, everything else was wonderful.

I called the Fed directly for a reservation the day before. I wanted a 5:15-5:30 PM reservation, but the lady who answered the phone said "NO - we're all booked up." I ended up making a 4:30 PM reservation on open table just in case. We arrived at 4:50 PM and were one of only TWO tables in the entire restaurant! By the time we left at 5:45 PM the Fed was seated at about 25% capacity! So why wasn't I able to get a 5:00 - 5:30 PM reservation???
