    The Fed is an amazing bar located inside the Langham Hotel in Boston. The bar itself has a great ambiance. The tables have comfortable seats and spacious seating. The tables are not on top of each other. The drink list is great, and the drink sizes are generous. It's worth stopping in for a drink. A++

    We were staying at the hotel on the club floor. My family and I were treated very disrespectfully by our server. After waiting 45 minutes for our drinks we ultimately had the maitre’d get our bill for us as the server was nowhere to be seen.

    We had oysters, crab claws, and steak frites. The seafood was outstanding as well as the steak frites which was cooked to perfection. Extra nice touch was when waiter brings the bottle of wine to the table when we ordered a 2nd glass. We will definitely be back.

    We went to the Fed with a party of 5 to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday with family. Our table was ready on arrival. The host took our coats and set us up with still and sparkling water. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. The food and drinks were spot on. I'd come back again.

    Our server was extraordinarily slow and indifferent to our patronage from start to finish which was only part of my decision to remove the Langham from my daughter’s wedding venue search. This customer service indifference and lack of teamwork approach should be taken into consideration before committing significant money to any function there. Every employee is an ambassador and a reflection (good or bad) of the organization they work for and the impression they leave can have negative consequences of which they may never know. Specifically speaking about our recent visit, I watched our drink order sit at the bar awaiting pick up and delivery for about 10 minutes. Since our server had not returned to our table I finally asked the bartender if we could get our drinks which he promptly brought over to our table. Even though out server was poor the bartender should have reacted sooner to the extended time our drinks sat directly in front of his work area. He should have informed the server they needed to be served. This was a missed opportunity for him to cover for our lazy and indifferent server. On a positive note regarding the bartender I did watch him perform for several minutes and could see he is an asset to the bar and attentive to the customers seated at the bar. But he needs to remember there are other customers in the place and if they are not being served it is his responsibility as a team member to address the customer service failure when he clearly knows about it. Your management team has clearly not done a good job of instilling in your employees a teamwork approach in customer service. Although I really wanted to have a great experience at your establishment I am grateful your employees gave me the only reason I needed to scratch the Langham off my wedding venue list - poor customer service and employee indifference. Probably the two best reasons not to patronize any establishment.

    Great place to have a drink but sadly, the food is not up to par with the friendly service and awesome decor and vibe. The $42 Lobster Roll was so underwhelming—mad at myself for ordering it. Go for drinks and maybe a burger but wish they did better with the food. As a guest of the hotel, dinner on site is not the call I fear.

    Our waiter, the bartender, and hostess were exceptional. Extremely attentive and patient as we decided what to order. The hostess relocated us when she noticed we were a family wedged in between two louder parties. The drinks were unique and carefully crafted. The food was very flavorful and the portions were large. We sampled the burger, duck wings, lobster macaroni and cheese, cheese toastie (grilled cheese), calamari, and the shrimp cocktail. The grilled cheese, burger, and wings were our favorites. Nice hotel bar with rich history and art. Enjoyable rainy evening there when the Red Sox game was cancelled!

    Really delicious food and a great wine/bar list. Seating is set up to be loungey which can be a little less comfortable for dinner but not terribly awkward. It's a high volume place but the tables are spaced well so you aren't on top of your neighbors listening to every word 🤣

    I think the food is very good. Service is seriously lacking esp at a high end hotel. You order something and it is not correct. Staff is so MIA you have to hunt them down for help. However, the food is good and it is always quiet so it is a tough decision to go or not.
