    First visit and consistent with the majority of reviews; setting and ambience is great with beautiful retro-style bar setting, food is excellent with a small, focussed menu - the duck 'wings' were the highlight! Service was the one area that lets it down; to be clear, the actual service we received was excellent, it just took an age to be seated, our order taken, drinks served etc as they're clearly understaffed. I appreciate this is impacting all industries but this has been a comment in reviews for over a year now, mgmnt need to address the issue.

    The fish and chips (crispy cod and fries) were served soggy. The steak was slightly over cooked. It was also way too loud in the establishment - feels like we were in an Irish pub.

    It’s a beautiful restaurant and bar! The staff is lovely. Our food was good but all of our steak temperatures were off. That’s reason for four stars instead of five. We’d absolutely go back!

    Initial impression was “nice decor”. Then we had plenty of time to survey the entire room and ambience, noting the youth of the clientele! We waited and waited at the entrance as servers walked past us, two elderly ladies. Finally after about five minutes we asked a server if we should just seat ourselves. Hhe asked if we had reservations. Then he got another server who seated us at a corner table for four. Our waiter was gracious, asked if we were guests at the hotel, brought our drinks promptly, asked if we wanted any modifications to our order. The drinks were nicely presented and the hamburgers were great. The noise level was pleasantly low so we could have a quiet conversation. Tha waiter thanked us for coming, asked if we enjoyed our visit and invited us to return.

    We enjoyed a fun night out at the Fed. Service was attentive and we tried four different cocktails and they were all excellent. For drinks alone, it was a 5-star experience. Food-wise, the menu is quite limited. The oysters and lobster we had were great. Steak frites was well-prepared but the amount of steak was slightly underwhelming. Will return for drinks and maybe try the seafood tower next time.

    Food options were great. Everything was delicious, although the portions were a little small for the price that was charged. The server was fantastic--just attentive enough to make sure all of our needs were taken care of, but not overly aggressive. The bar has a good ambiance. While we liked the food, we would be reluctant to go back given the prices that were charged.

    The service was impeccable, given that everything is slower these days, and the drinks were works of art. The food was extremely salty. Usually when I think food is salty, it's practically inedible to anyone else. I had the steak frites and I could see visible crystals of salt. My husband couldn't eat the fries as they made him pucker up from the salt; this was a win for me as I got to eat them for him. There were very limited options for vegetarians. Overall, I think this place can improve. However, I look forward to seeing it get better and I would try it again at a later time.

    Came to stay at the Langham for New Year's Eve/my birthday and had dinner at the Fed. Lovely restaurant with great service. Menu was a bit limited, but the hanger steak I ordered and the cod my daughter ordered were perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious! Surprisingly quiet for New Year's Eve, but just a wonderful experience overall.

    This was an OK dining experience. Had the steak frites and the fish and chips. Portions were on the smallish size for the price. While both tasted good, it was nothing to rave about. The bartenders were personable and made stellar drinks, so there is a good reason to come back. The decor was pretty nice and it was not very loud (the place was only half full). Would definitely return for cocktails but probably eat elsewhere.

    Nice to have a new neighborhood go-to for a drink or casual bite to eat! Super loud this time, think because of an office event. After all, it is a bar! Salmon salad was delicious. Probably wouldn't order the crispy cod again. Just a massive deep fried glob. Fries were the treat! We will be back and keep making our way through the menu! Thanks.

    Both the food and the drinks were delicious and unique. We were there on Halloween weekend, and especially enjoyed a custom-made vegetarian version of the scotch quail egg, using Impossible "meat" - special thanks to chef Dakota! We also loved the XL stovetop three cheese & mustard toastie and the hand pie. The "Hot Ghoul" cocktail (special for Halloween) was also a highlight - not too sweet, with the right amount of bitter, with a slice of dried blood orange and dark maraschino cherries to bring extra sweetness. All in all, expensive but well worth it!

    The experience was good, but this is more of a hotel bar that also serves food at tables, rather than a restaurant. There is no front desk to check in at and the tables are more like small bar tables rather than dinner tables. The menu for food is quite limited. Otherwise, service and food quality were great.

    The Fed is one of Boston’s best cocktail bars. I frequent it, and I’m never disappointed. The staff and bartenders are genuinely interested in their craft, and the service is beyond expectation. Love this spot. Perfect for a night out with friends, or a romantic drink with a partner.

    We were so excited to go back to this hotel and discover the new bar. I work not too far so we decided with my husband that we would go after work. Nice ambiance, decor a little dark to my taste ( I miss the previous Champagne bar and everything was much more opened). Drinks were excellent as well as the service but the menu is super small and the food was just okay:( We will definitely go back but just for drinks and maybe for diner at Grana ( hopefully the food is better).
