Diner Reviews
  • "Saturday pre-ACL dinner with the wife. Very nice location, great for a pre-show dinner or appetizers. Cold draft Harps, excellent Burger Sliders and the Wedges with Moxties was delicious. Nice take on the Queso. Star of the show were the cheese Puffs - delectable little fluffy and buttery puffs filled with a nice blend of creamy goodness. My wife left her glasses on the tabler, and our server chased us down on the street a half block from the pub to hand deliver them. Outstanding!"

  • "Authentic, made in Ireland, décor. There is nothing on the menu that isn't great, but the Lamb is the best of all!! Extensive beer and Irish Whiskey list, choices I didn't know existed. Great for gathering with friends, watching sports, St. Patrick's celebrations are second to none!!"

  • "We went here for dinner on a Monday night. The food was good. The wings were tasty...and the corned beef sandwich and reuben that we had were both very filling. The ambience was nice and quiet. Our server was very polite, personable, and helpful. The restaurant/bar was also very clean overall. Recommended."

  • "If you don't have time for a flight to Dublin, this is fine and we will have to return and sample more of the menu in the relaxed setting"

  • "Food was good. Drinks were good. Waiter was excellent. Unfortunately, the music was too loud for my blood and my group had a difficult time having a meaningful conversation over dinner. I had just come from a Formula 1 race where the cars are very loud, but the music was too much for me. It was our 2nd year in a row to visit Fado's. Next time, we'll be a bit more aware of the music level before we dine in again."

  • "As someone who came to Austin from the North of Ireland at the end of the summer, I've been dying to try an Irish pub since I got here. Fadó is an excellent restaurant and it was great to take my new friends out for a meal and give them an authentic taste of what home is for me. I will definitely be back!"

  • "Although we've heard of Fado before in other cities, have never ventured in until now...and boy were we impressed! The decor was incredible, transporting us back to the Shamrock Isle. The menu was invigorating, and the service was especially good and helpful, with plenty of suggestions, detailed descriptions, and more. We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised, and plan to make this a "regular" place."

  • "From start to finish the service and food was exceptional! It's a nice cozy and welcoming feel to it when you enter, the nook and crannies are decorated perfectly giving you a real sense of the Irish culture. Not only was our waitress Megan phenomenal, but even the general manager stopped by our table to make sure we were enjoying ourselves, with helpful hints to whiskey choices and great recommendations on the best eats on the menu, these guys went above and beyond. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem to anyone traveling through Austin looking for a great meal, friendly faces and the "everybody knows your name" feel to it, they even show the English soccer tournaments and have a wonderful brunch, can't wait to go back!"

  • "This was our first time to visit this establishment. We went for the Blaggards and fell in love with Fado!!! We'll be back for all the Blaggard's performances and then some and we'll reserve our table again via Open Table. Great experience all-around!!"

  • "You really can't go wrong here. Went for Fathers Day Brunch. Server was knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. We all ordered something different and no one was disappointed. Every dish was delicious and the food arrived in a timely manner.. Can't speak to the entire menu, but I got a bite of everything we had (shepherds pie, corned beef, salad, fish and chips, and the cheese appetizer).Cant wait to go back and try more. We got the caramel apple pie for dessert because they were out of then strawberry rhubarb. It was very good- and i normally don't like apple pie. Waiting for the next excuse to go back and try the rhubarb."

  • "My craving for a full Irish brunch led me to Fadó, and I was pleased. We arrived at noon, and were instructed to have a seat anywhere. The Irish coffee was the closest thing to what I have had in Ireland, and the brunch was fantastic. I'm coming back, for sure."

  • "This is an Irish pub with good pub fare and beer selections. Expect large spirited crowds when there is a game (futbol, most notably English Premier or any significant futbol, american soccer or rugby match). We popped in for lunch during the week (no notable games were airing) and enjoyed the same good food and good service without the chaos. Of course, this is THE place to be when it comes to catching a great EPL match."

  • "Great sports pub with authentic Irish pub ambiance, several big screen TVs, great drink menu and delicious mixed menu with both American Food and Irish favorite dishes. I had the beef stew appetizer and fish & chips as an entree. My wife had the chicken boxty quesadillas."
