great customer service – When you go to federicos see frank .He made my night it was my wife birthday.My wife was so happy.The food was great.The server was so nice.They made me feel a home.it was a Romantic Diner.
Location is not everything – The best thing Federico's has going for it is close proximity to the show Wicked- which pretty much describes the overall dining experience at this "bistro". The maitre d' was rude, the waiter tried, Mexican music blared ( the choice of the waiters), and the food reminded me of the first time your daughter tries to make sketti for Daddy. Don't get sucked in by the coupon.
Terrible service, long waits -- with a reservation! – Awful experice! We arrived early for our reservation and had some drinks at the bar. At the time of our reservation they still couldn't seat us and we wound up taking separate tables. We made the reservation days in advance and told them we were a large party with children. Service was very slow and you had to flag the waitress for every request. At one point I mentioned to the manager that we'd been seated for about an hour and still hadn't recv'd any apps or entrees. He snapped at me and told me it had been only 50 mins.
At the end, the waitress added a 20% tip and while we didn't contest it, we did ask to split the check three ways. It took over 30 mins for her and the manager to figure out how to do this and the conversation escalated when she told us she didn't have to split it our way (in thirds!).
Overall, a totally unsatisfying experience.
great food and service!!! – We were early for our reservations - got seated right away and were promptly attended to!
The food was delicious and the service excellent! Reasonable prices, too! Highly recommended.
A Little Jewel in the Theater District-Go! – After seeing the "Chicago" matinee yesterday, we took my daughter and her friend for an early dinner. We arrived 30 minutes earlier than our reservation but were seated promptly without a fuss. The service was prompt and efficient-the food wonderful. Om your first trip to Federico's-try ordering off the Early Bird Menu. The $22.95 Pre Fix dinners are to die for ! See if you can get a window table overlooking 50th Street!
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Traditional Italian restaurant near the Theater District serving pastas, brick-oven pizzas, and steak, fish and chicken dishes.
fantastic – My dining experience at this restaurant was wonderful. The food and service was first class! Exquisite taste, quite large portions. Very reasonable prices for such a romantic setting, my wife and I loved it! Great location for before or after a show. I would definitely recommend it .
amazing food and service – The food was absolutely amazing, the tomato sauce was to die for we went to federicos on a fri night after a show Frank the manger was so nice and such a help so if you go ask for Frank. Our dining experience at Fredericos was definetly one of our best.
WONDERFUL!!!! – My fiance and I went there after he proposed to me in times square, it was absoutely ROMANTIC. In my opinion the best Italian food I have had in NYC in a long time. The staff is remarkable, the food is breath taking, the atmosphere delightful, the matinis- awwsome and mouth watering baked clams. Definately deserves a second. Highly recommended !!!
A nice restaurant – The food was good, not heavy with the olive oil at all. The atmosphere was pleasant. The only downfall is the food was brought out too quickly, one course on top of the other. We arrived at 5:30PM, received our antipasti and main course so quickly, we were finished with the meal by 6:15PM. I got the feeling the food was prepared ahead of time because it didn't come out hot. My preference is a long dinner and this definitely was not. My husband said it took longer to get the check. Very reasonable prices.
