Television volume way too loud. Could not have a conversation with our business associates.
The Guinness was a little flat.
We only ordered appetizers which were nice but nothing to write home about.

We had a birthday celebration with 8 family members from Wisconsin and Maryland. Food, service and ambience were fantastic. Looking forward to our next visit to Fado's when we return to Chicago.

The food and drink specials were great, but my friends and I were seated in a corner of the restaurant next to a large table of people who were very loud, and the table was awkwardly placed. When walking around the restaurant the rest of it was noticeably quieter.

Lover of Fado for a long time. Noticed the menu has changed but it worked. I just love the vibe here. Lots of fun after-hours. We will always stop here when we visit Chicago.

AWESOME EXPERIENCE : Read why. Reserved table via open table. Reserved table was on stairway to the upstairs. Not ideal or workable for our intended special night out. I walked both upstairs and downstairs for options. Staff immediately allowed my choice to facilitate table location switch - that turned out to helped create the most amazing 3 hours I've had in 30 years. Vibe, customers, music, atmosphere, helpfulness of EVERY member of the staff we encountered was 10 - on a 1-10 scale. Candidly, everything was perfect, when I needed it to be perfect. Location, Staff, Atmosphere, Simple menu was wide ranging but not overwhelming. Food was great, and our server was a discreet, fast moving, professional, attentive excellent representative for this business operation. Oh, also, pricing was more than reasonable.
This is a MUST visit and try for any Chicago area outing. Thanks Tim/Jane TeamUS !
FYI: for management; our table was upstairs, corner table/booth by front window and faux fire.
7pm-945pm Sat 1/28/17 Please tell our awesome waitress we said hello & THX !
