Diner Reviews
  • "I wish I recalled the menu name of the pulled lamb sandwich because it was so good! I'd never had lamb before and had been wanting to get my feet wet with something other than a chop. This sandwich was akin to Italian beef with a really great tasting au jus. Matched up with nicely done chips and a Strongbow it made for a lovely supper. My friend had the Fish 'N Chips and was raving about it and especially the coleslaw. She's a bit of a fish and coleslaw connoisseur so it must have been great! Can't wait to return and try something else new!"

  • "Having been st. patty's day weekend, the staff was overwhelmingly organized, and efficient. nobody stayed around long with an empty drink, food was quick and full of eye candy as it passed by the many happy people. it was also amazing for the taste buds(lamb and blue cheese sliders) MUST TRY!!!!"

  • "Not what I expected. Played Country Western music. When I complained to the manager he put on R and R. Killed the atmosphere. I am sure there are better Irish bars in Chicago"

  • "It is my first time been to an Irish pub and the first restaurant I went to on my long weekend Chicago trip. My first impression was very vibrant, the interaction between customers and servers were more like friends. Love the fact that is less than 5 mins walk from my hotel and right in the downtown core of Chicago. Fish & Chip, and Corn Beef are a must have. The server recommended trying our local Guinness, was fantastic. We were lucky we happened to be at the pub while there was live music after 10 pm, the two men band was playing awesome music. If I ever going to Chicago again, I will definitely pay a visit again."

  • "We went as a large group and were 45 minutes late for reservation. I called to say we were running behind. We were seated in an upstairs room by ourselves ( a group of 8), since our table had been given away. Kate, our server, was friendly and attentive. She recommended the corned beef appetizer rolls which were scrumptious. I had the shepherds pie on her recommendation as well. The food, the Guinness, and desserts were all excellent. The owner? Manager, checked in on us a couple of times to see if everything was okay. More than okay, all of us are looking forward to visiting again for another wee bit of Ireland!"

  • "Three of us made reservations for Saturday at 7:30. We were greeted immediately, sat at a nice table and our server was extremely attentive, answering our questions and bringing our food/drinks in a timely manner. All three of us ordered the fish/chips and it was delicious! The Irish Coffee was an outstanding dessert treat and we will definitely be back! Thank you!"

  • "Food is savory, full of wonderful flavors. Ambience as if in an Irish pub. Would be a great place to meet up with friends or just for lunch or dinner with a pal or partner. Although my husband said that his entrée was so good that he wanted it for dessert, we did have the bread pudding and apple cake. They were delicious."

  • "There were 8 of us that dined at Fado. We were cousins that hadn't seen each other in 30 years! We were thankful that we were on the second floor, as the first floor was loud, and definitely the bar scene. We were also appreciative that they took reservations.with our larger party. Service was great! Food choices and prices were reasonable. Overall a very good experience."

  • "Went to Fado for a birthday party, they accommodated our large group (10) very comfortably! Every single appetizer and entree ordered was head & shoulders above standard pub fare. Food was flavorful and paired with a delightful pint was absolutely perfect for a chilly fall night in Chicago. My lone complaint about Fado is the lack of hostess...parties are kind of left to find their table themselves or attempt to flag down a manager."

  • "Eight of us girls went downtown to see a show and then out to dinner. We decided on fado because it was close to our theater. What a great choice. They had our table waiting for us when we arrived and sat us right away. Our server was friendly and took our drink order as soon as we sat down. They had loads of beers on tap which allowed for many 50/50 combinations. Most of our group ordered the Shepard's Pie which is toped with Colcannon and served with a yummy salad. It was so delicious that everyone cleaned their plates. The rest of the group ordered the Lamb dip. Another spectacular choice. The lamb was so tender and the dipping gravy was perfect. Would definitely go here again and again."

  • "We were five older women having a reunion. Loved the building and the manager who was willing to show us the architectural detail and talk about the history. We had drinks and dinner and were pleased to sit upstairs so that we could talk and laugh in relative quiet (downstairs is wonderfully loud, of course) and not be in the way or feel the need to free up our table. We were there for three hours. The food was very good - had to try the fish and chips and found them to be perfect. Our wait-person was charming, fun, and efficient."

  • "Outfrickingstanding appetizers. We had the fish tacos, cheese puffs, and lamb covered chips. Big portions and all were delicious. Service was very attentive but not hovering."
