Always enjoy myself at Fare. Great food, atmosphere and ambience . One of our top choices in the city of Philly
Great outdoor space & wonderful food! Good for small children & dogs, too.
Started with a bit of a hitch. Server brought us paper with specials on it which we thought were great and then we were told they were the wrong specials and came back and told us there was one special soft shell crab. My friend ordered it but I am allergic to them. I had been looking forward to that veal chop.
Lovely happy hour, and my co worker was super adorable, after work hours ;)
The waiter was rude and consescen
Fast service fresh food, friendly staff
Went for Mother's Day Brunch. The coffee was great and the food was incredible!! great cocktails too!
Great variety- plenty of vegetarian and fish options
Food was pretty expensive and not tasty in comparison to others offering similar items (grilled octopus, tuna tartar). Burger was requested rare, came out well done. Not child friendly. Not good.
Beautiful neighborhood and delicious food! Service was super quick, and overall felt very covid-safe with outdoor dining! Also very dog-friendly!
Great service and food.
We had a great time at Fare. They did a good job juggling reservations on a rainy evening, drinks were really good, and food was great. We will be back!
Went for happy hour and the drinks were great! Would definitely go again
Very professional servers, comfortable, not too noisy, menu had the right selections.
We had delicious omelets and chicken Caesar wrap. It was very busy and the wait staff was pulled in many directions. Our water bottle for the table was never refilled and our coffee was not either. It was very busy so I guess they were overburdened with people. But, we all enjoyed our meal and would go back again.
Fantastic food, atmosphere, and service! I love being able to sit outside with a view of the penitentiary!
Great time just to hang out after work we great people. The food and service is always great.
The tuna tartare with avocado appetizer was great and the crabcakes were good but not outstanding. Good drinks and nice place to eat outside.
Good food. Loved the Watermelon salad. Nice location.
Had a nice evening here with three friends. The outdoor booths are lovely and it has a great, lively atmosphere. However, was fairly disappointed in the quality of the drinks, and the food was very standard -- nothing special, though expensive.
Food: I got the salmon and found it somewhat boring, not super high quality. As for sides, the potato wedges were absolutely delicious, and the spinach was good. The 'corn' side was corn on the cob, which I would not expect at a restaurant this pricey.
Drinks: The drinks here are the kind you'd expect at a moderately priced college bar... or maybe a pub. All the cocktails are sweet; imagine ordering a cocktail that costs $14 with Smirnoff Citron in it. My $11 glass of Muscat wine somewhat tasteless, as was the rosé my boyfriend ordered, and the beer selection was also bland (I got a Chimay blanc).
We reserved an outside table for brunch for three people on a Saturday. The place was packed and the servers were hustling! Many people without reservations were waiting in line for a table. We waited about 10 minutes while a table was cleaned and sanitized (actually sanitized twice by mistake, but that's okay!) The staff were all super nice, friendly, and attentive. The table was right on Fairmount Ave, but on a deck, so we felt enough privacy and separation. The street was busy with lots of foot traffic; babies in strollers, kids on scooters, tons of happy people taking their time. It almost felt "normal". The food was delicious! Our table especially liked the crispy bacon, the avocado toast, and the fries. We stayed for 2 hours and no one ever hurried us along or gave us dirty looks. By the time we left (2:30 pm) there were plenty of open tables. We were so happy to be back out in the world and Fare Restaurant was a great place to be!
Great experience eating outside at Fare. Food was delicious. Menu is clearly marked which is great for food intolerances. Outside seating is on the street so you get street noise. Not a deal breaker. Overall was a pleasant experience with tasty food.
We used to love Fare as a great neighborhood dining option but unfortunately no more. While the great outdoor setting is very enticing and well done, nothing else about our meal stood up to our expectations. Service was slow and indifferent, to be fair they did seemed to be understaffed. The worst part of the meal was the food was no better than what you would get at an average diner. Maybe they expanded their seating beyond what the kitchen can keep up with? The appetizers were blah, the steak was overcooked and without flavor, the bronzino was good but the accompanying sides were not (asparagus 1" thick is no good and what's with cold beets sitting under a hot steak?). We are very sad to see this happen to what was one of our favorite places, especially now that so many other dining options are closed in Fairmount.
Service is very slow, waited 45 mins for our cocktails which arrived long after our main courses. Even getting water to our table was 20 mins after seating. There are better restaurants in the neighborhood for this price point.
Great fun awesome happy hr great service
WOW!! We live in Fairmount but had not been to Fare for a couple years. It's fantastic!! We sat outside--the heater kept the chill away.
We split three courses:
Tuna tartare with avocado with little crackers--perfect light appetizer.
We split the crabcakes--they also had avocado. Very nice & really good but then we had-
one of the BEST mussels & clams & crab & sausage in broth I've ever had--absolutely a fabulous dish, grilled bread for dipping. Really really good!
With all the seafood I ordered the Sancerre and it did not disappoint. We could just pretend it was the Loire outside our window instead of Fairmount Ave.
Absolutely excellent dinner. Highly recommended--we'll be back for sure.
The array of choices is excellent, with good offerings that are meatless. (The brunch mushroom flatbread is amazing! ) A great location for groups with a variety of dining preferences.
Fare has always provided good food and a good neighborly atmosphere. We go there on a regular basis, you should too.
The mark of a good restaurant is the attitude of the manager. I have had positive interactions with the management of FARE before, and the same could be said of my interaction with the manager at my brunch yesterday. I had some concerns about where I would be seated in the somewhat open patio area, that was a little limited due to rain.
The manager let me pick my own seat and mad sure that I was satisfied with the arrangements. The food was very good. Service was pleasant and overall, despite the crappy weather, my friend and I had a very good meal. Thanks FARE.
We started the meal by ordering two drinks and two appetizers. The portions were large so we asked for a box for the appetizers before ordering our entrees. It took at least 30 minutes before we were able to get our waitress's attention. We were so frustrated by the poor service we did not order entrees. I had high hopes for this place and it was extremely disappointing.
Great food, great service and lots of room to enjoy delicious dining.
Great menu and service. Beautiful outdoor seating. All Covid safety measures being followed. Highly recommend!
We took advantage of happy hour: The small plates were each tasty; the cocktails OK. The staff were friendly and accommodating, making for a n ice evening in difficult times. We certainly would return.
Fare has always been a consistently superb meal. I have never been disappointed!!
We ate outside, they have heaters but we didn't need them that day. Protected from the sun and the rain. Very attentive staff. And the food was hot and fresh and delicious.
I love Fare! Always great service and a great meal!
Great food and service. - seemed a bit pricey - but maybe that’s Covid driven
I love this place. Great selection of food and beverages. Plus the ambience is really cute. Great spot for any and all occasions
Our server was kind of abrupt and seemed agitated. I can understand that since this is an incredibly difficult time. However, with the price and the fact that getting to go out is rare, his attitude was kind of disappointing. However, the food is fantastic and they have a great outdoor set-up. Don’t order the Fairmount Pina Colada, it’s tasteless. It’s a great neighborhood spot other than a few little things.
Great food great service
