Consistently yummy!

With reservations, our party of six arrived and were seated at a circular table in the large room out back. Our server was attentive, our cocktails arrived promptly and were good. We ordered our entrees and were served our salads and bread quickly. Both were good and well presented. Our entrees arrived after about 20 mins from the arrival of... More

My wife and I had dinner here with our older son. We shared the frickles. Those are fried pickles. They were yummy. We also had the homemade chips. We had the chicken Roulade, which was excellent! My wife ordered a glass of Mcmanis Pinot Noir and I ordered the "Ménage a Trois" wine. Our son had the chicken fingers. Our... More

I have never had a bad meal here. The Cheddar Ale soup is excellent. I would recommend this place to everyone who wants an excellent meal.

Sad to say that this place would probably not compete well in a more competitive market. The ambiance is generally good, and the service is usually good also, but the food--though some choices are very good-- is inconsistent. We've eaten here about 10 times in the past year and a half--with friends, family, or just the two of us--and the... More

We've been to One Fed quite a few times and the food is always excellent! Salads are always very fresh, veggies of the day are perfect with them using seasonal vegetables when they can. They have a regular menu and always have 3-4 chef's specials each week. These are usually quite innovative and tasty! It's hard for me to stray... More

I will definitely consider it one of my go-to restaurants. Where you sit can make a difference in your dining experience.

Waited for 10 min no one was there behind the bar or bussing tables.It was lunch time on Saturday and clearly someone didn't show up for work except for one person running back and forth from the kitchen to ? And not even looking to see who had arrived. We walked out.

One Federal is not to be missed. I'm a lifelong VT'er and have dined at many a fine restaurant, and I would hands-down say that One Federal is the most flavorful experiences I've ever had. The decor and ambiance are well thought out, VT charm with a splash of big city class. The preperation and flavors in the food were... More
