I took my daughter to Fare for Valentine’s Day dinner. It was a last minute decision and we had no idea what to expect. We go out often and know many of the restaurants in Center City, but not so much those in the Fairmount area. Fare was great. The service was excellent and the food was very good. Grilled Octopus on a puree of white beans was excellent and the calamari was good too. I had the skirt steak which was ok and my daughter had the lamb chops which were very good. Overall, it’s a solid place with a great atmosphere and really good food. I will definitely go back.

Excellent fish tacos. In fact, the whole plate with rice and beans and coleslaw was pretty and delicious. I did not leave a crumb.

The food was good, and the service, attentive. We would certainly return to Fare for similar occasions.

Good food but both of our first and second courses came out together. And everything had too much oregano. Other than that I enjoyed everything and both of the bartenders that waited on us were great.

Dull food (silly salad, etc); young, silly service; horrible fries; tasteless burger. Our third time (we live nearby), always carelessly prepared food. Tourist place — owners think diners are stupid don’t know good food.

Another terrific meal at Fare. The service is always fantastic and our meals were spot on. We love their varied menu and they are always able to modify ingredients to meet my clean WOE (way of eating).

Look forward to returning soon.

Three of us went out for a long deferred brunch. The service was delightful: pleasant, accurate and quick without being rushed. I had the meat omelette of the day which was piping hot and cooked all the way through without being burnt. My friends had the eggs Benedict and the breakfast burrito. Both were also excellent. We shared a lovely French red which was a delicious accompaniment for our meal.

The food is great and the the atmosphere is relaxed. Friendly service and a willingness to accommodate dietary needs. We love having a place we can go to with friends or just for a bite when we don’t want to cook. Consistently delicious!

Great menu with wonderful fish and seafood options. The whole fish was wonderful, as was the seafood pasta which was loaded with seafood. We shared the pililia of spreads and the fare chips, and both were great. Not too noisy, and great service.
