    Last weekend I agreed to help my boyfriend pick up a desk he purchased over in Old Town Alexander. As soon a we put the desk in the minivan, I got a text from friends to meet up at Fado's in DC. Absolutely the best night because they had a live band playing. Turtle Recall. Absolutely fantastic combination of great music, food and beer.

    Typical bar/pub food. Went on a busy night and the restaurant was very loud, was difficult to make dinner conversation without yelling.

    We were in Washington, DC for a convention in the neighborhood. Saw favorable reviews about Fado. Service was friendly and as attentive as the busy waiter could be. Had the Shepherd's pie, which was nicely presented with a salad on the side of the dish. Both were good. The rhubarb dessert was excellent also. Would have gone back again, but there were other restaurants in the area that we wanted to try.

    Had a going away at Fados. Our server Jarrell was great!! The tables were already set up because we made an online reservation. Even though we didn't order prior to getting there, our food was ready in less than 10 minutes for the entire group! Everything was delicious and very reasonable. We will definitely be returning! !

    Recently we had eaten brunch at the Fado Pub in Annapolis which is newer and has a more extensive brunch menu than the one in Washington, DC. The food was outstanding and there were things on the menu that I wanted to try. This Fado had a limited brunch menu and the food is not as good as it is at the one in Annapolis. But, it was near the yoga studio so it was convenient. The food is decent, it was early, so it was not crowded yet. The service was fine but they should offer the extended brunch menu. It had selections that were more appetizing than the one offered.

    Went at lunch and had a good selection of food. The soups (barley or potato leek) were both scrumptious. Service was outstanding.

    I went with a group of friends for brunch on a Sunday. For $25 you get bread/muffins, fruit, coffee or tea, a brunch entree AND bottomless mimosas or bloody marys. We figured that was a good deal (it was) although the place might have been a little understaffed so we did have to wait a bit between rounds of drinks. Everyone was friendly, the place had a cool feel to it (a little like the Three Broomsticks for you Harry Potter people out there). There was a hurling match on so the bar was pretty crazy with shouting spectators (but in a good way). I'd definitely come back again.
