The Federal Grill
Book your next event with us
I enjoyed the food I ordered, but because I'm gluten sensitive, was unable to eat the dessert brought out as my complimentary birthday dessert. I think options should be presented. Also my mother-in-law's pork chop was so dry, she was unable to eat it. They did, however, offer to bring her something different.
Crab cake was, as usual, the best in the country. Everything was delicious, service was attentive but not pushy. In fact, Alex was perhaps the best we have ever had, here or anywhere.
Our server was excellent. I recommend getting the chocolate martini and the desert are good
I planned a birthday dinner for 10 people. When we arrived, Federal Grille was ready for us! Table set up. Very attentive from hostess stand, management to server. Amazing staff! I had a cake and things to decorate the table. They had no problem letting me set up early. The filet and shrimp dinner feature was cooked perfectly. Our glasses were always full. Perfect timing on meal. Drinks and cake presentation.
Always great food but spotty service.
I really enjoyed my meal and it was a great place to catch up with one of my friends :)
The food was delicious and the wait-service was excellent. We will be going more often. My only complaint is that the kitchen pushed the food out a little quickly. Given that we had a later seating on a Friday night, it would have been nice to relax a little more. We likely would have ordered a bottle of wine following our appetizers and cocktails had our entrees not been rushed.
I really enjoys The Federal Grill for my 35th birthday dinner. The valet, hostess and servers were all extremely nice! The food was delicious. I personally loved the truffle chicken. We had a reservation on a Thursday so it was nice and chill, not over crowded. Very nice experience
I love this restaurant, but it’s the coldest restaurant I have ever been to. I have been seated in opposite ends of the restaurant on different visits and still froze, even with a jacket on. That is my only complaint, but it is probably enough to keep me from returning.
Out of town family gathering. Brother-in-law loved the whiskey selection and said he will visit Houston more often just to visit the restaurant. So much for wanting to spend time with family. LOL. Everything was awesome! Thanks for making us look good!
Our whole experience was wonderful. Great date night experience overall!
Have been meaning to try this restaurant for some time and was so glad we decided to go here to celebrate a birthday. The atmosphere was lovely and the noise level such that we could actually carry on a conversation. From the yummy breads to the delicious salads to the ginormous pork chop, it was home run all the way around. We're looking forward to coming back soon!
We had a lovely dinner, evening at Federal American Grill. Great place to meet up with friends and family. Highly recommend!
Excellent! Definitely going back soon!

Excellent food, service and fun atmosphere.
The Brussels sprouts are so amazing!!
Everyone was fantastic! He had a large birthday brunch (15 or so). Originally the number was 10. I called the night before to increase and we still had more. They were so accommodating and our waitress was amazing. It was perfect.
The food is total quality. The price reflects the quality food. A very nice place to eat. Maybe not everyday if you are on a budget but if not then it should be at least weekly if not more.
Went for hubby’s birthday. Ambiance was great. Service was above par..they felt they were slow getting our food out so they brought us complimentary dessert. Then they toasted my husband with a bottle of Moët champagne for his birthday! Throughout the evening several staff came over to ask how we were and if they could do anything for us.
Our favorite restaurant in Houston! We lived in Houston for 8 years and have tried all the new and trendy places plus the oldies and Federal Grill is definitely our go-to. LOVE the socialite cocktail and the seafood specials!! And the half-baked chocolate chip cookie for dessert (for 2) is THE BEST EVER!!!! Highly recommend this place for dinner!!
Really cool vibe. Food was so delicious. Very flavorful!!
Met long-time friends, we shared an appetizer and dessert and we all tried something different, ALL great! Definitely going back!
Fantastic brunch and great service! Food was delicious as always!
Served warm oysters. We paid and left. Good Bloody Mary but the food was 30 minutes to receive and then warm.
Our reservation was at 1245. We were seated by 1257. Didn’t get any food until almost 2pm. Ate and paid the bill at 255pm. It was just a burger and egg dishes...that is waaaay tooo long for brunch. I had to ask what happened to our order
The atmosphere was good and the food was also good. We went for Father's day at 12:15 pm. Brunch is served from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm that day.
Unfortunately, by 12:15 on Sunday they were already out of chicken & waffles and also out of cheesecake. Very dissapointing.
We went for brunch. The food was fantastic! Everyone at our table was pleased with their food. The service was spot on. Our drinks were always full, plates were taken away as they were empty and we didn’t have to wait forever for the check. We will definitely be back! I can’t wait to go back for dinner. The dinner menu looked wonderful.
The entire experience was wonderful from beginning to end.
Excellent restaurant in the Heights for brunch! Father's Day brunch was perfect. We went around 10:00 am so escaped the crowd. Was told that they were expecting over 400 people throughout the day! We will return there again for breakfast/brunch on a quieter weekend. Highly recommended.
The food was good and the restaurant was nice. I was expecting something a little more "special". Definitely worth a try if you are in the area but I wouldn't go out of my way.
