The Fed is the best brunch restaurant in the area and we love the Bloody Mary bar.

Loved the decor upstairs. I heard it was even better downstairs. Didn't care for the menu. The food was average. I heard dinner is better. BEAUTIFUL atmosphere.

The decor and staff are top notch. I ordered Filet and broccoli I & my husband ordered a strip steak with potatoes . The steaks had zero flavor. I kept adding salt bc I could t taste anything at all. For the price of the steaks it was not worth it - soups were good . We would try it again and order something else but if you can’t cook steaks , what’s wrong with you? Were they poor quality? Hmmm.

I would recommend going there for the ambiance, cocktails and to enjoy the live music. I would not recommend the food. Too expensive for what it is and doesn’t taste that great either. Asked for a rare steak and it came out medium well and Med rare the second time. Friends pasta was incredibly bland.

This is the second time I’ve been to the Fed. I was so impressed by it the first time I had to take my mother there for brunch. The food was excellent the service was great everything I expect from this restaurant. However there was a group of people table next to us having a few too many mimosas. Management didn’t seem too concerned about doing anything about it. They were noisy loud and Obnoxious. This is supposed to be a respectable fine dining place not some place for a bunch of drunks at Sunday brunch.

Food was good maybe a little over priced. Very cool setting, especially if you want to have a drink while waiting for your table. Seats are very uncomfortable. We really enjoyed our time otherwise.

Fourth time being to The Fed and each time the food/service has been so underwhelming. We came in for what we thought was a “St.Paddys” day menu to be told that the menu was going to be served only in the evening (nowhere online website/Instagram did it say evening only! A table near us also came in for the St.Paddys day food so we weren’t alone!) We went ahead and ordered brunch as we were starving and waited a long time for it to get to us, once it arrived it was mediocre. We decided to come back in the evening to taste the St.Paddys day menu (as we had been really excited for it!) - we wish we hadn’t. Food was terrible!! Again, another long wait for it to get to us. I would go back to The Fed to have a drink as the building is so beautiful!! But I won’t be eating there again! I know I’m not the only one that feels this way.

Have been to The Fed several times and decided to try their Sunday brunch. The food was fantastic and we love the ambience thus, always returning for more! On this particular visit our service was beyond awful. Once she took our drink and food order we never saw her again. Not once did she ask if everything was okay, ask if we needed any more to drink (glasses remained empty until we flagged her down) or bother to communicate with us at all. Our lovely brunch turned into a situation of no desire to return. We feel a great dining experience is not only the food, drink and ambience, but also the service. A server can either make or break a fabulous meal. This time, our server definitely had a negative impact on our meal.

Bottomless mimosa brunch for $15 is a great pull. Bloody Mary’s were excellent. My Cobb salad was delicious as were the breakfast items but unfortunately my husbands burger was very undercooked he almost couldn’t eat it but the fries are great. Hopefully the burger was a fluke.

The atmosphere is ecclectic and the menu is impressive to read but disappointing to the taste buds. We ordered Tomato Basil soup and it arrived lukewarm and tasteless. The cobb salad was average. Their trademark califlower appetizer is outstanding, however. We were overall disappointed.

What a nice surprise. We had salmon that was not overcooked, as restaurants normally do, and a great waiter named Rob. This place is a good concept, a bank restaurant, with good ambiance and good food. We'll be back. We are from Grand Blanc and on our way to the Detroit Symphony after dinner. This was a fantastic way to avoid traffic on I-75 for a trip downtown to the D.

I have dined here about 5 times. The service is truly hit or miss. The food is acceptable to decent but, seriously nothing to write home about. The interior is gorgeous and very presentable. The downstairs bars is wonderful, but loud. The best suggestion is to stop in here for drinks or desert while on your way to another place to eat.

Service and food was excellent. Made reservations for 10:00 on a Sunday, though they didn’t appear necessary once we arrived. Our seat was already ready for us, even when we arrived 10 mins early. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would go back.

Arrived for our 6:30 reservation, and we were still waiting to be seated at 7:30. At that point, out of desperation, they sat us in the basement, at a communal picnic table, complete with bench seating. Not what we expected. The server was very nice and offered complimentary appetizers for our wait. Many tables upstairs were taken up with people hanging out after their meal, carryouts on the table. Very trendy spot, and maybe we are at the age of not wanting to be inconvenienced to this degree. Won't be back. Food was nicely prepared and tasty, but we can get good food elsewhere, without the aggravation. Very disappointed in the restaurant, had high hopes.

A very neat place. Impeccable service and not pretentious. My wife and I are vegetarians and there really wasn't a "vegetarian" selection other than the salmon which was a bit too "cheffy" for our tastes. But it is a GREAT place...the vaults are cool and downstairs there was love music and a neat bar scene.

Appetizer soup and main entree were both Luke earn and not hot. It was a bit pricey for the small portions of food received. Kitchen needs to step up their game to get food out timely and hot. My medium chop was more like well done.
