    This location is amazing, I have introduced several of my friends and family to the wonderful food , drinks and customer service at Federal Grill. The manager Justin was beyond hospitable and accommodating. Easily answered any questions 1st timers had. I give this place 30stars! Always a pleasant time here with delicious food. I highly recommend the Short Rib … it melts in your mouth! 🤤🤤🤤

    I would have rated them 5 stars except for two issues. First, the valet service was totally unprepared for the very predictably high number of people needing their services, which set a very negative tone. Second, there was apparently a large group at and near the bar, who were EXTREMELY NOISY. But as soon as we rounded the corner to the area with our table, the noise level dropped dramatically, so we had a nice, quiet dinner. Everything else was fabulous - the staff, the ambience , the service and the food.
