Offering the freshest traditional Provencal dishes, FADA has been a Williamsburg staple since it opened in 2001. From the name of the restaurant (which loosely translates into "crazy" or as "someone with a fairy in their mind"), to the food, live music, and décor, FADA is completely infused with the owner’s native Marseilles roots.

A spacious but cozy main room with caramel tones and a Provencal garden provide the perfect setting for private events and a casual experience of Southern France in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Went here last night for my birthday. The food was phenomenal but the service, not so much. Waited a good 20 minutes before we were greeted and brought water, which was never refilled (and it was a sauna in there!). Once we were finished, it was another maddening struggle to get the check. My friend - who lived in France for a while - told us that this slow, inattentive service is very much the French way, so I guess we got the authentic experience. Not sure if all the waiters at Fada are French but ours was.

But like I said, the food was amazing and I will be back for it. Would especially recommend the steak au poive and calamari. We never got the snails we ordered but I'm sure they're good to.

The food was very good and very reasonably priced. The back garden was very pleasant. There was a pretty wild and loud party going on in the private party area in the back but ... it was still pretty nice. Will go back.

Lovely neighbourhood bistro with delightful tapas freshly cooked. Wine list is a bargain and the live jazz band bring the charm to a very beautiful interior.

Fada is a highly underrated restaurant in the neighborhood. Its super cute, the food is always on point, service is friendly, and the price point is GREAT! Like a steak au poivre is only $15. I don't know why this place isn't super busy.

The jazz trio was great and the steak au poivre and the burrata salad were excellent. The mussels, less so. The waitress was fast and attentive and really cared that we have a great meal.
Good food and live music. Would definitely recommend.

We went to hear gypsy jazz. Not sure if the guitarists were playing much gypsy music, but we couldn't stay too long. It's a cool French-run place with a garden in the back. I'd definitely go back again!
