The two staff members that were on between 5pm & 6pm were ridiculously rushed off their feet. The guy couldn’t leave the bar to take our order, so we had to wait for 30mins. When the lady started she was so rushed we were worried she was going to fall down the stairs so she was having to run so much. Despite being completely understaffed they both did amazing jobs and should be highly rewarded by your management as they did exceptionally well in extremely poor working conditions.

It was impossible to get through on the telephone automated answering system to make a booking. Eventually booked through outside web site, very frustrating.

We dined there before we went to Aladdin at the Festival Theatre The food and drink were excellent but the female staff could have been a bit more friendlier We finished our main course and the plates were taken away and then the bill came We weren’t even offered dessert or coffee We were fairly full from our meal so didn’t want it but found it strange it wasn’t offered Will dine there again

We enjoyed a meal prior to going to the theatre. The service was prompt and the meal was as per our order. Very happy with the service and presentation.

The food was lovely but unfortunately the service was very poor. We were the only diners and no drink order was taken and we were not looked at once our main was served. We left to have a coffee rather than stay. It is due to this that I would not return nor would I reccomend the Federal Restaurant even though the pumpkin soup and caesar salad were delicious.

A beautiful meal with really good service. We needed to be out in time to get to the theatre and we made it with plenty of time.

We were warmly greeted & offered the "Happy Hour" drinks which was a surprise as we had not been aware of this. Small dining area , quickly shown to our seats, again a lovely surprise as it was a window setting. The place then filled up &was quite noisy. Our food was fine, staff were very busy.

Being Accor members, we had half price meals and were given drink vouchers. We also recieved a complimentary bottle of champagne as it was our friends birthday. The food was delicious and the service was excellent!

Food was great, but if picky, Bread and butter pudding was a little dry, very tasty, but suggest add a little more egg custard next time :) We will be back
