Our time was short before a Capitol’s home playoff game. The service was excellent and our meals arrived so quickly I was stunned, which gave us more time to relax before rushing off to the game. My kale and barley salad was outstanding! This will be our new pregame dinner spot in DC.
A friend and I had lunch on a weekday. It was very quiet and easy to hear each other. So a very different atmosphere from pre-game times. The service was top notch and the food was quite good. Will definitely be back at lunch time.
On vacation in Washington. Wow the pub was bustling and bursting with energy because of a hockey game. Obviously a spot for hockey fans for a pint and a bite before the match, which explains the noise which was fine. Food was great. Great atmosphere. Nice authentic old pub vibe. Really emjoyed it !!
With friends before the Caps game!
Excellent place to watch the match! Great service all around. I will return!
I brought a large group for post happy hour and dinner we had a lovely time in the drinks were great
Great atmospher, drinks, and food with a very friendly waitress!
Dinner before the Hockey game, place was packed but they had that under control. Bartender took care of us swimmingly and we got to the game in time for the first puck drop
This restaurant never disappoints. Great food, atmosphere. We were there prior to local hockey game so rowdy crowd. Great food and service.
Nice pub warm friendly good food . Quick service and value for money. Would recommend this pub.
Yo the server was dope and the manager was super accommodating of my rare allergy
Perfect place for some shepherds pie and a whisky on a cold snowy night
Went to watch college football. Lots of TVs great service and good food. Will be back!
Great! Busy, but had reservations, food came out quick, tasted great. Very cozy setting near fireplace area. Certainly a place to return!
My wife and I were in DC over a weekend from the UK. We went to Fado for Live soccer and brunch. It was a great experience clean lively good company and good value. We will return.
My wife andI love this place. She had the Rueben and I had the Black bean burger. Each was delicious and served quickly. Reservation did not disappoint. Great staff on event night (hockey game).
A special visit to Washington DC deserved a special dinner-so glad we tried this Irish pub! The shepherds pie was delightfully authentic, as was my husband's corned beef & cabbage dinner. Ambience was amazing with low lights and design/furnishings you'd find in the old country, herself! Tim, our waiter, completed a perfect night with great service. We will definitely dine here again!
This is a pub, exclusively . There's a bouncer at the door. Why they're on open table taking reservations makes no sense. Very loud, lively pub atmosphere which is great if you're looking for pints. It's not somewhere to dine.
Stopped at the pub after a busy day touring sites in D.C. We had the hamburgers and fish and chips. Everything was good including service. Would return next time in D.C.
It was great food and a great experience! There was a soccer game going on so that was a bit loud but eh!
We made a reservation but there was no one to seat us or even speak to. The servers and bartenders were overwhelmed by the pre hockey game crowd and knew nothing about reservations- nor cared. We had walked well over a mile to get there and were very disappointed. We left and went elsewhere.
Uncomplicated menu and comfortable atmosphere. There is both a bar and dining area. Our server was attentive and the food came fast. We were in the mood for fish and chips and it did not disappoint.
Service was great. Very friendly and accommodating of special requests.
It was super crowded, so very happy to have made a reservation. Food and drinks were great, service was a little slow, but to be expected when the place is that busy.
Slow service, took 35 minutes to get food. Limited menu.
Nice selection of lunch food and quick service!
The place is fun, authentic, but a bit loud. The server was nice, but rushed. The food was good, but the menu limited. I do wish they would give points for the reservations though, why bother being on Open table.
Boxty was yummy.
Food was great and they serve Harp lager which is a plus. Noise level to high for a conversation so not the place for a business dinner.
We were late for our reservation, and we called to let them know. They were very accommodating and friendly. We were taken right away and our waitress was very friendly. We got our food in record time and were out in plenty of time for the Streisant concert. The food was excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The only drawback for us was the noise level.
Too loud inside with music. Waitress brought food but didn't refill water glasses until near end of meal. Corned beef and cabbage and beer were great though.
great service, food and ambiance...what else could you ask for
Good food and quiet at lunch time.
Unique ambiance & amazing food!
Good food and beers, but no kids menu. Kids had to order off the Starters menu, which made it a more expensive lunch. Also, a small (kid-sized) glass of chocolate milk cost more than a large glass of iced tea, and more than 50% of the cost of a draft craft beer. Fado is good, but not if you're bringing kids.
Came before a Verizon Center concert for drinks & dinner. There were several great happy hour appetizers & drinks available. Our waitress new our time commitment and spaced the service out perfectly.
I'm a huge fan of their beer list and the fish and chips. This is always a destination outing for friends when we hit the movie theaters in the area. So I'm here quite often and always happy to return.
We really enjoyed our evening at Fado's. Had a reservation and was seated immediately in a nice corner by the fire. Service was prompt and server responded to every request. Food was outstanding and served hot and fresh. Great cheese dip for appetizer and the best cod and chip this side of the pond. Rhubarb pie and bread pudding for dessert. Great draft Smithwick's beer and a great Cabernet Sauvignon. Also a great selection of bottle beers and whisky. Atmosphere was wonderful and then live music from 10pm. I'll go back again when in DC.
Great service. Tara was exceptional!
We made a reservation here for my boyfriend's birthday dinner. The minute we stepped through the door, the bouncer came over and asked us for ID. I am 21, but my boyfriend is not, so he would not let us in. After we left, we scoured their website for anything saying that under 21's would not be allowed, but we couldn't find anything. I have no problem with bars requiring patrons to be 21, but it would have been nice if there had been some indication of this on the website, so we would have known not to make a reservation. It was especially confusing because my boyfriend has been here before, and he had no problem getting in that time. NOTE: I can't actually speak for the food or the value because we didn't get to experience that.
