capers, tomato, onion, cream cheese, and a bagel
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.
Very good service
Best food. Lovely atmosphere.
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!
Food is excellent. Great restaurant in Fairmount section.
Delicious food, fun servers, great times
Awesome dinner . Fresh fish, delicious apps, great cocktails....
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.
Seafood pasta was outstanding.
Restaurant was hardly full yet service was slow.
Love the quality food, friendly service and delightful heated outdoor seating area.
The service was great. The food was well cooked but lacked flavor. I had the award winning crab cakes. They were mediocre- unfortunately.
great vibe and awesome live music plus great food
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.
Literally the best food! We had the Beet salad, Greek salad and the Mediterranean Flat Bread. Their Crab cakes and Swordfish special were amazing. No kidding, this place is awesome! Thank you Fare for doing it exceptionally right!
Food is delicious, interesting and nicely presented. Outside eating in the cold is never comfortable but sufficient enclosure and heat lamps make it manageable- would bring a blanket for legs next time!
Great food and cocktails ,never disappoints!
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.
Great food and service
Food was very good. Service was good!!
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.
Great ambiance and outdoor heaters. Food was poor.
First time I came and was not impressed. I made a reservation for 4 people and they seated our friends who came earlier and when I came they sat us at a different table because they couldn’t find our reservation. Brussel Sprout salad was extremely salty. We asked for a refill of coffee and they said we had to pay for it, after spending $200 on dinner. When we requested to speak to manager, waitress brought us a cold coffee refill and when we told her it was cold, she never brought us another cup. Poor service! Will never come back!
don't order the flank steak. Leather is more tender.
Food was delicious, so well and creatively prepared and presented, portions were generous, service was great. A bit pricey, but worth it. Highly recommend!
Salmon and Brussel Sprouts were both over cooked.
Waiter was very tough to get a hold of and we had to wait 25 minutes for him to come back after we finished our appetizers to order food.
Some food was okay, some wasn’t cooked well. Gnocchi was good, however other weren’t so much.
The ambiance of the place is pretty cool and it can make up for the other wise average/below average food/service.
I would go back for only appetizers or happy hour - not spending money on dinner here again.
Fare was a really good find for us! We got something to eat before our set time for the State Penitentiary Haunted House. We started out with drinks, they were really strong but GOOD, so no complaints there. Then we got appetizer’s which were a caesar salad (really good), calamari (wasn’t to bad), and the fries with parmesan cheese (AMAZING!!!!!). The fries come with some kind of dipping sauce that was really good! We did not get any entrees because we order two rounds of fries. I would definitely be back!
Service was really great! Food was very good. It had been two years since I had been there but was exactly as I remembered.
Great food great service all around good
Great outside dining experience
The location is great and the seating outdoor is precious. The food is fine. Service was disorganized: didn't prompt for drinks before order, didn't prompt for refill in a timely manner, no smile, no enthusiasm and brought the wrong bill at our table!
Genuinely the worst food I’ve ever had from a restaurant. The crispy tuna was clearly taken from a freezer and microwaved (and if not, they did a great job mimicking the odor and texture you’d get from doing that); the octopus was flavorless (and the olives it was plated with were rancid); the branzino ($32!) was unseasoned and undercooked. First time in my life I’ve been not just underwhelmed but unable to finish branzino. They also subbed the ordered wine with something else that was distinctly sweeter. I left with a huge bill and empty stomach because the food was barely edible. I’d say they should stick to cooking vegetables but their Brussels sprouts smelled like a gym locker and potatoes were soggy and flavorless. Blows my mind how anyone can eat at this place twice.
Fun evening, very accommodating and attentive wait staff Loved your happy hour picks and our wine as well
Will return again. I’ve also been for brunch. Also wonderful
Worse service I have ever had in Philadelphia- waitress couldn’t care less. We wanted to walk out.
good food but service was slower than I had hoped. for example, my tea arrived after my dessert was eaten. this was the theme for each food item and request.
The place was packed last night even when we left at 9:30. Great lamb chops on the special menu. We all enjoyed our meal and our wine. Nice that we can still dine outside.
Happy hour food and drinks are great
great food and lovely ambiance. crab cakes are amazing1
Terrible service. Subpar food for a high price. Hostess was rude. I will not return here.
Had a nice brunch on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Service was great. Food can fast and was delicious
food took so long to come out, server didn’t check on us once
