“Disappointed”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

We dined here for our 29th wedding anniversary. And have dined here on numerous occasions previous. I had Chicken parmigiana (which was overcooked) and my husband had Steak. The menu said that our options were salad and chips, or veges and mashed potato. We ordered veges and got chips instead of mashed potato. There was no steak knife provided with the steak meal. And when the chips arrived at the table they were cold. We complained and were promptly brought fresh hot chips which were nice. The staff seemed uninterested in the diners in the dining room. And were more interested in socializing with each other. This was not our best dining experience at the Federal Hotel. And would probably consider going elsewhere for special occasions in future. But otherwise the meal was OK. The veges were cooked to perfection as was the steak.
