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!!
Jerry was wonderful!
As usual the Federal Grill on Shepherd delivers. Great food, great ambiance, a team that cares truly.
It is always vibrant, never too loud though, it is a place we feel great in and always enjoy our time.
Don’t miss the cheeseburger egg rolls (yes sounds strange but it is beyond delicious)
We slipped in for a late bite and some drinks. Our server and the other servers worked as a team to make sure every detail was attended. The specialty drinks are always great as is the food.
Everything amazing as always .....
Decided to try their brunch for my birthday. It was great. I had the chicken and waffles and the way the waffle is cooked almost like a funnel cake With nicely seasoned chicken breast. It’s drizzled with cinnamon icing served with fruit. The fresh biscuits brought to the table were light and fluffy, served with a nice chutney jam and butter. I also was able to try the house potatoes because the other two people got them with their plates.
Definitely want to come back and try more!
We took our granddaughter for her first visit. The cheeseburger egg rolls are my favorite & now hers. Always an enjoyable time with good reasonably priced food.
Our server was amazing, sadly I did not catch her name but she was helpful, kind, and responsive. Food was delicious and noise level was above average but not terrible. Only suggestion I would have for management was increase wine selection by the glass.
Service and food was amazing, restaurant followed COVID guidelines. Gerrymandering our service was spectacular. Always enjoy dining here.
Nice place to enjoy brunch. Had a nice time. Food was good. They had a band.
Have a great time meeting some friends for brunch. The food was awesome as usual the service was awesome as well. The staff is very friendly and accommodating the food is off the chain. If you haven’t tried the Sunday brunch yet it’s a must do !
Food was great and decently priced! Drinks were way too expensive :/
Federal Grill is one of a few Houston restaurants where my wife and I have been eating regularly for months. They have proper protocols. I am an academic pulmonary physician and believe that such institutions with proven protocols should be patronized by Houston's citizens.
We wanted to grab a quick bite while celebrating my 40th birthday. The food was very tasty and my drink was really good. We were in a bit of a rush because we had other places to go, but the waiter came out and surprised me with a birthday treat. Really made my day special. The chicken fried oysters are amazing btw.
We had not been there for more than a year. We had forgotten how wonderful the food is. We will be going again soon I’m sure.it is a 50 minute trip, but we’ll worth the drive.
Another couple joined us on the terrace for Monday Night Football. Had a great time as usually. Food was fun!
Brunch was incredible. Benny was our waiter and he was very attentive without being overbearing. The juice was very fresh.
Great Time. Federal Grill has an amazing team all the way around!!
Dave the manager ruined our experience. Yelling at our server who was fantastic. Fired him on the spot. Yelled expletives about our server being poor at his job. Every table in the restaurant heard what was happening. I immediately closed out. As kind as Dave is there I will no the returning.
My date enjoyed her dinner the only bad thing the couple next to us had to much perfume on. Even with social distancing we could still smell their perfume 😁
Food and ambience was perfect! Our waiter was not properly trained or perhaps even suited for this type of establishment. He actually took away from the dining experience.
That was most unfortunate.
Everything was great except after we were seated it took someone 15 minutes to come to our table.
Phenomenal service!! Phenomenal food!! James the GM, knows how to treat customers with over the top hospitality.
We will definitely be back!!
Went to this restaurant for my 50th birthday party and it did not disappoint! The ambience is beautiful the food was excellent and there were a lot of choices. The price was worth it! The service was a little slower that evening but I don’t have that against the server. He was very attentive. Will definitely go back!
I love sitting in the bar area and having the “multi server” experience. It feels as though everyone cares for everyone, and we never sat waiting for a service. Drinks and food are always amazing!
Had a person with “nut” allergies. The hostess and the server where attentive and showed great care to handle it. Making he meal just great with no drama. Would join them again for a meal as I have for pre-Covid events and meetings. Job well done.
Great service. They surprised the birthday dessert for our friend!!
Food was great and so was the ambiance. Our waiter wasn’t attentive but I enjoyed my experience overall. Definitely going back.
We had an outdoor table after a rain so it was nice and empty outside and as usual the food was DELICIOUS! I would not want to eat inside during corona because the tables are close together and the restaurant gets very full.
Fantastic food, service and noise level for a business lunch. I highly recommend the Federal Grill.
My table was double booked so they asked me to move. It wasn't fair to me but they accommodated me with a free bottle of wine.
The manager David Lopez as well as the staff were professional and eager to get what you need to make your experience relaxing and unforgettable. Our food arrived hot and delicious. Will be going to brunch soon!
