We were meeting another couple in St. Albans for dinner and we chose One Federal. We are so glad we did! It was a nice night in early May and we sat outside on the back patio. I ordered the Maple Bacon Chicken and it was so delicious! The many different flavors were so good together and I took some... More

Not quite sure what's happened to this restaurant but it isn't good anymore. Or should I say, great recipes which are horribly executed. Last time my fiancé and I went here, we said it was the last time. I ordered the Prince Edward Island mussels, they came out about an hour after we ordered & when they finally got to... More

I can't say enough about the service, they were friendly and efficient. The menu is huge and we all tried... More

Stopped in here last night after Maplefest looking for a meal before getting on the road. Had read a few good reviews but also many not-so great ones, so I was slightly skeptical....but this place turned out to be a fabulous find. I loved the old building and layout of the restaurant, we sat in more of the bar side... More

It was late, it was my husband's birthday, we were in the area and wanted a decent meal. Yelp reviews are fairly bleak for the area and we decided to try One Federal. Street parking only, which was a slight challenge, due to road construction. It was packed, but we were quickly seated. Diora was our server and she was... More

This is one of several "upscale" restaurants in the area, and the decor is very nice with pictures of old St. Albans thru-out the premises. Nice separate bar area, cozy rooms withchoice of booth or tables with chairs, etc... Varied menu which you can keep as a souvenir. Food can be hit or miss, but generally good. Service is always...

We usually go there for dinner and we always found what we liked. It's a warm and kind place with very gentle waitresses. Sometimes, you have to wait for 10/15 mins if you don't reserve on time, but apart from this. Steak and burgers are very good. Once they took our favorite appetizer off "Nachos" but luckily enough, they put... More

Had a nice meal here with some excellent drinks and desserts. Our table was a bit close to some other tables but our server was very good. Tasty fries, and the prices were fair.
