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

This place has excellent food in a very unique and historic atmosphere. There were many different dining areas including a small private room. Service was good and the area is nice with a lot of history.

I wanted to check this place out since I live nearby. I went in and ordered the mussels (fabulous), and the cheddar ale soup (not great). The salads came with the dressing on top and there was very little of it to speak of. I ordered two strip steaks medium, each with two different sides. They brough out two rib... More

We had a very nice meal. When we couldn't decide which beer to try, the waitress brought us some samples, a nice touch we thought. Family atmosphere, we could sit at the window and watch the sun set over Lake Champlain.

We went to this restaurant for lunch and were seated quickly. Our server was extremely efficient and friendly. My wife had a turkey sandwich which was huge and oaded with turkey. All sandwiches ordered at our table as well as other tables were very large. I had a warm spinach salad with bacon and maple vinaigrette dressing. It was excellent.... More

Overall not a bad place to eat. We usually go for lunch and the food is quite good. The service is respectable. I feel the prices are a little high but not unreasonable. I would recommend to at least give it a try.

On my most recent visit, I had much to discuss with a friend and we ended up occupying our table for over two hours for... More
