This is a keeper!
Amazing from beginning to end.
Outstanding food and service was very good, impressed with this dining establishment during these difficult times.
Service was excellent and the food was great . Interesting menu choices.
Good overall comfort food at reasonable prices. We will go again.
Cheese burger egg rolls are a must have. Wait staff very very very slow and inattentive. Had to ask twice for condiments and for the check. Took 20+ min to get our drinks from the bar.
Always have a great experience at Federal. GM Dave, Owner Matt and the team pride themselves on a high quality experience and they definitely provide that.
Food was good, service was amazing, nice drink menu. It was a little loud due to a large party near us, but all in all a good date night restaurant.
Very disappointed. Won’t go back even with the offer of “free brunch” on our next visit.
Appetizer served cold- which they warmed up after we asked.
Omelette was served with unmelted Swiss cheese squares in it and overall cold.
Burger and fries served cold.
Manager came over to offer solutions. I wasn’t interested in trying anything else on the menu.
My omelette was taken off our tab.
As we were leaving a second manager stopped us and offered a “free brunch” on our next visit... a little too late in my opinion.
This was the second time we had a bad experience there. We will not be going back even with their half hearted offer of free food after a truly terrible dining experience.
Not even going into the live music situation.
Oh then the valet brought us the wrong car and literally looked us crazy when we wouldn’t get in. We had to tell them twice that it wasn’t our car.
Everything was deliciously delicious! The Cajun Bloody Mary was awesome!
We went with a group of 12 during the pandemic and they accommodated us well. The drinks, food and service were outstanding. I would definitely recommend Federal Grill to anyone.
Everything was great. Our server Stacey did a nice job and we enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere.
Best restaurant in Houston!
Had fun at brunch with my daughter, the shrimp and grits was outstanding!
Amazing as always!!
Good date night
This place never disappoints and the waitstaff is incredible!!
Over priced for the food and most of the things we ordered came out cold. Food did not seem fresh. The full federal breakfast is half a plate of greens. Kind of a salad.
My party of 3 was charged gratituity, our waiter repeatedly forgot to bring bread to the table and to put in our appetizer. He also removed his mask to speak. His name was Stacey I believe
The service was excellent. The food was good, but not great. One of my teenage sons couldn't find anything to eat on the menu. They should add a few comfort items like a normal hamburger for kids. They only have brisket burgers.
Had a wonderful evening. This is a great go to spot.
We had a great evening. Service was great. Food was excellent. We will go back.
The Federal Grill has been one of my favorite restaurants in Houston. My wife and I visit a quiet often Federal Grill. Not just from the amazing service of the maitre d's, but also the five stars of quality food, great selection of wine options, and the best cocktails selections. And last but not least the service by providing Complimentary Valet parking to all their guest is a plus.
The Federal Grill is one of the best places to visit and to share an amazing memory with that special person!
Thank you Federal Grill and to all the team members that share amazing memories with us.
Iron man omelet.... healthy and hearty
Social distancing and healthy Covid protocols do NOT seem to be follow at this restaurant. Customers at different tables sit within 1-2 feet apart, the waiter regularly pulled his mask down to talk because of the noise levels, appeared to be operating at 100%+ capacity...I will not return to this restaurant due to the fact that they do not appear to be taking Covid health and safety precautions seriously!!!!!
Enjoyed the private booth. Seemed private and relatively intimate. Food was great and was a busy night so service was a bit slow. They however gave us complimentary cocktails so that was a nice touch. You gotta try the Sinatra cocktail. Absolutely heavenly.
Great service at the bar, food was on point and steaks were cooked properly.
Always great food and service. Get the crab cake...no like get the crab cake!
Favorite casual lunch location. No rushing. Try the fried oyster app or the calamari. I typically have the catch of the day...always perfectly prepared.
Also, the staff will do their best to make your meal perfect....substitution? no problem.
I also recommend drinks and apps at the bar late afternoon or after work. Always friendly folks around to chat or just have a relaxing break before heading home.
We came in for brunch on a Sunday. The reservation was easy to make and the food was good. Service was great
Great place. Loved the food selection and service. Live music for the brunch. Perfect!
Never fails to disappoint, great ambiance and wonder food and drinks.
The meatloaf and chicken fried steak was exquisite! My mom and I loved the decor and ambience and the waitress was wonderful!
Always a nice place for dinner and drinks with family and friends. Definitely recommend.
Masks optional for staff and valet. Hostess was great.
Was a little disappointing. Not exceptional in any way. While the service was ok, the food did not stand out.
Great food, great service! Would go back. Will accommodate larger parties.
The atmosphere was amazing. It is a nice hideaway. The bread baskets and jam is ridiculously good. Yummy yummy...
Music was way tooooo loud. Had to tell waiter on four different occasions. Manager did not bother to check out our concern. The restaurant has a lot of upside. However if you have to yell at everyone to talk, I will go somewhere else!!
