    7 of us for dinner on a Friday night. Food and service were fantastic. Very loud however and we could hardly hear each other speak, but maybe that was where we were sitting. Everyone loved their food. On Saturdays and Sundays, they have endless mimosas (and bloody mary's) for $15. The waitress was kind enough to say, most people don't drink enough bloody mary's for the price and it's not the same as if you ordered their traditional bloody mary. Saturday, 3 of us went for brunch. A friend ordered the endless mimosas. I ordered their traditional bloody mary. It was delicious! Brunch was Irish yummy and not that expensive. All of us would highly recommend this place.

    It was extremely loud when we went but it was during the hockey game so it's understandable. The food wasn't anything too special but it was still good. Cheap eat.

    First visit was with a group of friends over the Holidays. Thoroughly enjoyed. This trip however, wasn't as good. I still recommend Fado highly if you're going out after work for a few drinks and some apps. The prices during Happy Hour are tough to beat for the are and the selection is solid for both food and drinks. This trip however, the apps we ordered came cold. Not so much cold as prepared, re-heated and served. The 2nd set of apps we ordered came out fresh and hot, which offset the feeling of the 1st batch. I still recommend Fado as a place to hang out after work or with a decent sized group. Will go back again.

    We went to Fado as we had theater tickets and were tight on time. Our waitress was absolute wonderful and thoughtful. We had reservations for 5:30 -- we had drinks, ate, coffee and dessert and left with 15 minutes to walk to the theater!

    Excellent service, great food! My friend and I went and really enjoyed going to Fado for the food and the cheerful and lively bar scene! The manager, waiters, and bartenders all had good personalities that helped make the evening fun! I highly recommend going for the delicious food, great service, and a fun evening!
