Love Fado. Sucks that it is closing after St. Patrick's Day. Really disappointed to find that out. Very very sad. My Austin is slowly disappearing.
Best Irish Pub we have been to in Texas!! Not only is the decor straight from the old country, the food, service, and hospitality are as well. We always dine here when attending events near downtown, but also go for date nights. Weekends will often feature live music, which just enhances the experience. A must for anyone wanting to be Irish! Salante!!
This is a great location for watching sports with your friends. Lots of excitement and tons of tvs. The thing i love most about it is the fact that it’s a sports bar yet cozy. Those two things are difficult to find at the same time. We love it here!
We had to cancel our trip to Ireland at the last minute, and while NOT in Ireland, Fado served as an awesome substitute for amazing food and Guinness!
Great food and very friendly wait staff. Highly recommend this Pub for a night out with friends
All around good no complaints
Excellent place to reboot and enjoy some drinks with ac meal. Guinness girls showed up and gave away free drinks which always makes the night better and the meal.
This restaurant is definitely a pub and should not be on OpenTable as taking reservations as no one working there has any knowledge of a host/hostess stand much less a reservation or reserved table. If there was a wait we could have had an issue because we had a show time after our 'reserved' dinner time. And service was blasé enough to make it tight even though we sat immediately. Thankfully the food was very good and drinks were fun.
Cleaned our own tables, made reservations a week in advance and they were not prepared. I don't honestly know why they use open table. Our waitress had to be asked 3 times for most things. All in all I should rate it worse but the person we went there for loves it and the Guinness (not cheap) was good!
Delicious food with a laid-back atmosphere. Server was personable.
Great dinner date place! Filling meals at an affordable price.
Lots of fun, but 'cozy'; not the place for claustrophobes.
Worst experience possible. This place called me 3 hrs to my reservation (8 people, celebration, came from over an hour away) to tell me they forgot that they were having a stewfest and they might be able to seat us outside. Not the best scenario; but That was fine, considering at this point-it's Saturday in Austin and having a party of this size we would not be able to get reservations anywhere else.
At 729 we called to let them know our cab took the wrong street and we would be 10-15 minutes late. The girl on the phone said no problem, and thanks for the heads up.
At 741 we show up, only to be told they can't give us a table.
My husband has done 5 tours overseas in the US army. This was his first celebration home for his birthday. We had family and friends plan this for weeks.
This place sucks. If you have any family or friends in any service, don't go here. If there was a problem they could of told us when we called to say we were running late.
There were no apologies, suggestions.
Thanks Fado for being the worst restaurant experience on OpenTable possible.
Loved the atmosphere and service was great! The traditional Irish decorations and menu made for a wonderful evening!
Excellent as always!!
The service was incredible per usual.
I have the corned beef & cabbage big plate chased down with a couple of Irish coffees whenever I visit. The wife loved the fish & chips with Guinness.
This pub was like a traditional Irish pub, but a bit quieter. The food was good, but nothing special. Drinks were alright. This place isn't bad, but we might have came on a quiet day.
The service, atmosphere and dining experience was delightful. It was our anniversary and the staff made us feel welcome and comped our dessert
I've NEVER been to a more ANNOYING restaurant in my life. The entire evening there was a REDICULOUS trivia game going on. Geeks everywhere who apparently regularly play. A guy with a microphone screaming out questions and answers from a stage right next to the table! Couldn't have polite dinner conversation! Why leave that table there for someone to sit at or why not warn us??!?!?!? INSANE environment. Food fine. Drink menu fine. Atmosphere HORRIBLE!
