    We needed a restaurant near 40th street and this seemed like a good choice. We were not disappointed; exceeded our expectations. Food came out quickly and was well prepared…. Enjoyed it and we will be back!

    Salmon could have been less salty, but it was well cooked. Baklava was dry and tasteless.. Tuna Tartar was not the best. Brussels Sprouts, Vericots verts and beets were good. My daughter enjoyed her steak. The drinks were yummy.. Our server was lovely and attentive.. All in all, we had a good time..

    Our host who also was our server was not pleasant, upon arrival, did not offer any suggestions for the menu and was not attentive to us while sitting and we were the only guest inside at the time. The oysters came out were not satisfactory and when we sent back the server had an attitude. We paid for drinks and left due to poor service.

    Everything was amazeballs! Last minute Valentines date with the husband. Food was great, service 5 stars, drinks great! But the kicker was at the end they presented me with a red rose and him with the bill. We laughed so hard because it was my treat.

    We had the opportunity to eat one of those Parking Spot outdoor seating accommodations for the first time. They didn't live up to my visions completely, but it wasn't bad. The food, as usual, was great and well portioned.

    8:45pm reservation. Staff greeted my friend who arrived on time by telling her they had all been waiting for us so they could shut down early for the night. When she felt uncomfortable by this remark she asked if we should go somewhere else. They sat her, but told her we needed to make it fast. Ultimately, we decided to go somewhere else as the staff made it apparent that they were resentful and did not want us there holding them up. I’ve been to Fare several times and have loved every experience - very surprised by this. I understand their desire to leave early for the night, but there was reservation ability up until 9:15pm. Perhaps this needs to be adjusted if the staff does not want to stay late.

    Excellent food and service and service at the bar. Started with the octopus which was probably the most tender we have had in a long time - well worth the splurge. My son had the porterhouse special, which he loved. I had the fish and my husband had the flank steak, also very good. Finished with a bite of my sons chocolate lava cake, delicious. Old fashioned excellent too.

    Unfortunately the bacon flatbread had 3 plain pieces w just a piece of apple. I just felt that there could’ve been more of the sauce and bacon on all of the pieces so it was a little underwhelming. Also, my friend’s challah burger did not have any pastrami. The service was impeccable and we loved the atmosphere. This is the first time I was dissatisfied with the food.

    I had the joy of dining at Fare for a NYE dinner with some friends of mine. The inside was decorated for the New Year and it was overall a very cute restaurant. The food was amazing -- we got appetizers, drinks, entrees and finished the night off with dessert. I felt like the place is reasonably priced and the portions are large. I'll be back again!

    Couldn't comment on the food because we never got served. It took about 5 minutes for anyone to even acknowledge our existence. I understand there is a staff shortage, but there were at least 5 wait staff that walked right past us and didn't even say someone will be with you, etc. After we sat, we waited another 10 minutes with no acknowledgement from any staff. We ended up leaving and going to the restaurant next door.

    Service was not good and I say this despite the fact that I know it’s a tough time to have and maintain good staff. Our waiter needed more help, fewer customers, and much more training before he was on a solo “flight”. We felt badly for him but the service was so slow that our food came out (in a strange order) not even hot. Others were aware of the situation and once an item was served by someone from the kitchen who knew that item was being ruined by sitting there. I’d have been more understanding, having dined at Fare many times over the years, despite it being my suggestion to a friend who never had been there, if another server (or perhaps owner) hadn’t sat talking and joshing with a table of four nearby while we waited and waited for everything.

    Service was fab and so were drinks and pancakes. Eggs were not great unfortunately especially for a restaurant that seems to prioritize good ingredients. Hope they switch to farm raised local eggs and butter soon for a more scrumptious scramble! But can’t emphasize enough how lovely the staff is. Our food was quick and everything aside from eggs was delicious. And bonus points for having added a changing table in the ladies (and hopefully the mens) restroom.

    Food is always excellent. A little disappointed that appetizers took so long and when they came out, main meals came out 5 minutes later. Felt a bit rushed.
