    The FED must be an acronym for FUN, EXCEPTIONAL & DELICIOUS! Highly recommend starter of cauliflower, sauce to die for! All (3) entrees were culinary delights: mushroom pappardelle, chicken and filet were amazing. Chicken unexpectedly was the most amazing especially in beure blanc sauce with yukon gold potatoes and asparagus. YUMMY! Firecracker in cookie dough as birthday celebration was entertaining and tasty! Bianca and all team members provided an experience that was top shelf!

    Food was good, service was outstanding! Met a girlfriend there to catch up and had a great time. I had been before, but she had never been. The only downside was how loud it was. I’ve been there for brunch previously and don’t remember conversations carrying so much.

    Sunday night dinner around 6pm. Background music from overhead speakers was too loud. Had to talk really loud to hear each other most of the time. Other than that, the food, server, and ambience were great. Loved the curry carrot soup, duck breast, lamb pappardelle, and panna cotta. Great presentation and delicious!

    If the waiter asks if you've been there before, just say "yes" and avoid a long speech. The food was mostly prepared well. The sweet potatoes were undercooked in parts but everything else was as expected.

    Not the best experience we have had at the Fed. Hostesses we’re too busy socializing amongst themselves to seat guests. One Main course came out of the kitchen nearly cold, twice. Rest of the mains were good.

    This was our first visit to the Fed and was impressed with the quality of service and food. A small menu but one they do very well. All 4 entrees were excellent and definitely will return. Prices are high but worth the quality. Side salad at $9 was overpriced. Nice wine and beer selection. Noise level was high since the ceilings have nothing to absorb the sound.

    Always nice to see the place and the decor. Service, when we were finally greeted was exceptional. Food has good quality, however the prices and portions need addressing. If you plan on leaving full, its not the place for you. Cool place for a cocktail while hoping around the town. Not a place to take a family out on a casual Sunday dinner.

    Excellent! Comfortable and friendly with great food, great service and a unique atmosphere that is very relaxing. We were there for the Sunday Brunch, started with the Cinnamon French Toast Sticks that were delicious. Followed with a Classic Benny and a Smoked Salmon Benny that were perfectly done. Being first timers, we asked about a few menu items and our server (Shelby) described each item in detail. Will definitely go back.

    CON- The pricing is the weak point: fairly expensive. Our dinner for 4 DID NOT include soup, salad, bread, or mixed drinks. We ordered a total of 6 beers, had mid-priced entrees and I appetizer to split. 2 desserts for the table. $280 after 19% tip. Portion sizing could have been larger, for the $$. Chocolate Everything dessert could use a re-work: a bit dry. PRO- Server was attentive, energetic and focused. Setting is fun and unique: an old bank. Ambient noise level was pleasant: could carry on a conversation in normal tones of voice (occupancy was ~50%). The food was tasty: they offer a limited menu but those items are done with care: pairings and flavors are unique and done expertly. I would recommend The Fed to a friend who has big money :)

    Had an early Friday night dinner. It was already fairly busy and a little bit loud. The building is very interesting, being an old bank among other things. The service and the wait staff were very knowledgeable and helpful explaining the menu. We both had salads an an entree, a kale salad and an elite Caesar, and Scottish salmon and steak and frites. Both salads were excellent and very large. The entrees were also very good.

    Such a great birthday date night! The service was AMAZING. Our waiter was very professional asking if we had any food allergies. (Which I do so that was so nice to be asked). told us about all the specials, asked if we had any questions and was very polite! Food was also wonderful! The atmosphere was a cozy boho dream! So glad we went!

    Another outstanding dinner The Fed. Started with the cauliflower appetizer, fat burgers with truffle fries for main course were all outstanding. Great food combined with outstanding service and ambience made for another above expectation dinner experience. Our server (So sorry can’t remember her name) was outstanding and make sure we have everything we needed to enjoy our visit

    Close but doesn’t meet the quality of its competitors. Drinks were good. Unusual menu - pork belly flatbread My guy had the hanger steak and it was cooked to perfection. I had the filet asked for medium, Got well done. He had chocolate desert he really enjoyed. I had lemon pound cake- 3 pieces of pound cake the size of quarters with grapefruit & whipped cream. I think this is way overpriced gor what you get Our server was great but overall underwhelmed

    We love The Fed and we went last night for Valentines Day. We ordered a bottle of wine, the mussels (our favorite!) and the tomahawk steak feature (AMAZING) the steak was a 28oz sharable plate, it was $200. Andrew was our server and he was outstanding there were a few bumps during our meal that were out of his control. Someone else cleared our plates and we still had about half our steak left and they just got rid of it so we were unable to take our left overs home. it was sad that we paid $200 for something we only got to eat half of but Andrew went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience.

    I want to start this off by saying, the service was absolutely amazing! We have actually, just by chance, had the same server 3 out of the last 4 times we have been in and he is top notch. My husband and I ordered two Hazy Little Things and he came back and said the tap just blew, no big deal, and offered Hop Slam instead. So we said that works for us. He comes back with 2 half filled, foamed snifters and says, I'm so sorry but that tap just blew too. He gaves us those for free because of the issues, which was appreciated but with it being Valentines day it was just very unexpected that you wouldn't be able to provide two very common beer drafts. Specials were explained to us and my husband and I decided to split the wagyu 28oz steak, that was described as 'shareable'. We also had to order a side of smashed potatoes because he said it only came with a small salad side, which he didn't understand either. If you're paying that much money for a protein, you should atleast get a starch and/or veggie option. The Wagyu arrives and there is absolutely no way this thing was 28oz! Maybe if you count the bone, you would get to 28oz but im paying $200 for ounces I can eat, not throw away. Now the steak was delicious and we were beyond happy with the flavor but 2 of the slices were complete fat. So we gave up probably half of the ounces to the bone and then 2 whole slices of ounces to pure fat. This was really, really disappointing. We didn't say anything to our server because it did taste great but also because we had already had issues with our drinks and we didn't want to be that couple that complained, especially on valentine's day. We understand and appreciate the price meets the quality at The Fed, however we left this time feeling a bit robbed!
