Great atmosphere, delicious food and nice crowd. Good place for many occasions.
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.
Fado is known as one of the top Irish pubs in Chicago but also boasts a fantastic menu.
Always great food and exceptional service!!!
It's all about the amazing food! Oh and the harp beer! A++++++++++++++++ 😊
Amazing……food was incredible!!!!! Warm and friendly atmosphere! Needs 30 stars!!!!!!!!
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 !
In Chicago for a wedding and were staying not to far from there. They accomidated my mother in wheelchair and set us up a table, calling it the VIP table. The Irish breakfast was to die for and the hospitality was absolutely wonderful!! Steve, his brother John, as well as all the gals made it all worth while. SO glad we went, and the Guiness, well, that spoke for itself!! Go if you have a chance...worth every bit!! Thanks again to you all who were so helpful with our mom, and for showing us the history upstairs in the womans bathroom...very cool!! :)
Reserved table was ready upon arrival. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Fish n Chips was great!
Great pub! The staff was friendly and helpful. They got my friend's order wrong but they were apologetic and quick to make it right. Great comfort food and cocktails! Big TVs to catch a game.
We had a great time celebrating two birthdays in one evening at Fado. Our server was totally awesome! The food is superbly tasty for "pub-grub" using excellent ingredients and taking fresh approaches to usually blah UK fare. Love the decor and attentive staff. Great place to have a hearty laugh over a hearty stout!
The bacon pepper jack cheese puff appetizer is outstanding!!!!
Interesting, when we arrived at our Open Table time, we were told the establishment no longer honored Open Table reservations, said they had dropped Open Table month ago. I showed them my reservations, owner ...Tom came out and we chatted. He graciously got us a reserved table and the evening turned out very good. It was World Cup night and the place was packed, but he found us a table.
Wonderful selection of beers on tap!
Went here for brunch Easter Sunday and had the full Irish breakfast while my wife tried the shepard's pie. Both were incredible and well prepared. This pub also pours a proper pint of Guinness alongside notable Irish brews: Magners, Harp, & Smithwick's. I tried their Irish coffee for dessert and was pleased they used real cream with cinnamon sprinkled on top. If you are looking for a traditional pub with great drinks, food, and atmosphere you don't have to search elsewhere.
I love Irish Pubs and have been to Fado's a couple times and had the opportunity to bring a few co-workers with me while working in town. Guinness was on site doing "pouring" lessons so our group got to pour our own beer which they gave to us at no charge plus gave us cool hats. I was a bit disappointed in the shepherds pie but the appetizers were good as were the burgers.
Excellent service for such a crowded place.
Manager also checked on us as well. Good food, good beer.
