    The food and drinks were awesome. We ordered the lamb sliders as an appetizer, they were great. The chicken bacon sandwich and shepherd's pie entrees did not disappoint. However, it was difficult to get the servers attention, the restaurant was not that busy, and so there was really no reason for the lackluster service.

    We met friends (4 adults/4 kids) at fado for dinner before the July 4th fireworks. They nabbed an outdoor table near the fountain and we had good food and service. My husband has to be careful about what he can eat so his options were limited but the rest of us were fine with the bar food like burgers, fish & chips, and the lamb gyros (really yummy). We did order a bunch of fried food which was tasty if that's what you are into.

    Went here to be able to reserve a table to watch England-Italy World Cup game. I had Reuben sandwich & Maryland crab soup. Both were very good. Service was so-so; looked like only 2-3 servers for the whole place. Dessert was very good but coffee was not so great (I'm on a five restaurant run of lousy coffee-?). Will be back sometime soon - prices were reasonable & food/ale were good.

    My husband I chose Fados as the place to eat after our tiny wedding ceremony. I requested a secluded space, if possible, and when we arrived we were so pleased to find the most attentive staff and our own private space. Knowing it was our wedding day, the staff were congratulatory, friendly, excited, accommodating, attentive, and even brought us champagne on the house to celebrate. They went out of their way to ensure everything was special, without us asking! We were not expecting the VIP treatment, but we were given the utmost courtesy and respect. They did an amazing job and I would recommend this to anyone. Ive been several times before and have eaten outside while enjoying live music in the summer and inside to watch a game at the bar.

    We really like Fado. We always try to visit here whenever possible. It has a nice, homey feel to it. Even when winter is blowing outside, this place seems so warm. The service is very good. You never have to wait long. I would give Fado Five Stars.

    We'd never gone to Fado and wanted to give it a try so four of us went on a quiet evening. The menu had traditional Irish fare with modern twists. Soup was good. Appetizers were very interesting and sandwiches very tasty. The prices were fare and service friendly. A very positive experience.

  • Skimpy On The Cabbage
    Yorkman
    Dined on 11/30/2013
    We both ordered Corned Beef And Cabbage. The corned beef was good and plentiful, as were the potatoes, but not so the cabbage. It was merely small strips of the inner white leafs, some of which were a bit undercooked. I'm used to a good chunky portion of cabbage with my corned beef, full, green and leafy. It was disappointing. When I asked the waitress about it, she merely shrugged it off with the standard comment "That's what it usually looks like". I will probably not go back to Fado's.

    We booked a party of 7 with the open table app while we were still at navy stadium for about two hours later. We arrived early for our reservation and they were not aware of our open table booking, even though I had received a confirmation email. However, even though it was extremely busy with lots of parties waiting, they did offer us a table that had a reserved sign on it. Maybe it was for us after all. Anyway, our server was excellent, friendly and very efficient. We ordered appetizers and entrees. We all ordered different entrees, from salads to soups, sandwiches, and hot meals and everyone was extremely pleased with the food. Would go here again! Had been there for brunch a few months earlier and had a great food and good service.

    We had reservation for 830pm. We arrived at the restaurant and NO HOST/HOSTESS. The waitresses are passing by and NO ONE acknowledge our presence. We were standing by the hostess area for 10 mins. Finally, my husband asked one of the passing waitress and she told to sit anywhere. We stayed for another 5 mins and ended up at Gordon Biersch instead. We chose this restaurant because it had good reviews from other patrons and we were GREATLY DISAPPOINTED.

    We spend Father's Day lunch at Fado. My dad is in a wheelchair but they easily accommodated us. The food was really terrific (and abundant). In addition to the usual Irish bar offerings (not a bad thing), we were able to try some things we'd never had before. The Guiness cheddar bread was a standout, as was the fish and chips and the lamb French dip sandwich. Don't forget to save room for the Harvest bread pudding, either. Orla, our Irish waitress, was new on the job but handled us like a pro, giving us good recommendations on beer and food. We totally enjoyed ourselves. Even though this is a chain, the restaurant was beautiful and we will definitely return.

    We arrived 10 minutes late, and our reservation was given away and we were told the wait would be an hour. And I'm still giving the service a very good - That says a lot. We mentioned our open table reservation and management found us space quickly! Comped us and appetizer and seemed to make sure we had the friendliest waitress in Annapolis. The menu seems more lunch oriented than dinner- but every thing was good. Hearty stick to your ribs Irish good. They boxty with guinness sauce and the Irish breakfast both turned up to be solid choices. Nothing great or extravagant just good food. Heavy and probably not fit for foodies though. Bar seemed to be kicking and they had nice ads for that european football up. I'd go back. That says alot

    Walking distance from the Westin Hotel. We asked for a highchair in the reservation and the staff had one waiting. They seemed to position all the patrons with small children together in one area -- great idea. My wife had the corned beef and cabbage - 6 of 10 for her on the food. I had the fish & chips - very good and generous portion. Of note, there isn't a children's menu, but many appetizers work very well for children (mac & cheese, mini-burgers, etc).

    Second time at this restaurant. Good food. Service was slow because Fado was packed (Navy football game just ended.) We were able to get veggies instead of bread or potato boxey with the appetizer and they were fresh and crunchy. Everyone's meal was very good, but a gluten free menu could have been useful.

    We ate at fado on a Friday evening. We had reservations inside, but they allowed us to eat outside and hear the live music (Brian and Jason - talented duo). Happy hour beer selection was limited and not very good (Werewolf). So we ordered off the regular menu for the second round. Loved the appetizer, salad, and the great Guinness sauce on the Chicken sandwich. Too full to order dessert, but we'll definitely go back for another meal.
