Faros’s environment provides each patron with an authentic Greek dining experience, ensuring great service. Our food is prepared fresh with high quality ingredients and we take pride in offering large portions at reasonable prices.

With 2 floors, offering seating inside and outside, Faros is a great venue for private and semi-private functions of all sizes. We look forward to serving the community of Brooklyn and the surrounding towns for many years to come.

This restaurant could use a more prominent awning because Ive lives in park slope a long time and didn’t realize it was here! But the food is amazing, so so good, and the atmosphere is charming. We came for a birthday dinner with 8 people and everyone was delighted by this restaurant. Now I want to come here all the time!

The brunch food was not bad, but not the best. I feel like they probably excel more with dinner. Will definitely be back to try it.

Lovely space well situated on 7th Avenue, and they even have a little garden in the back. We were there on a rainy Sunday, and had a lovely brunch. I think at a different time of day the noise level would be livelier. Lovely staff and the food was very good, but I suspect that their skills at Greek cooking are likely to be better represented over lunch and dinner dishes. Nonetheless, we enjoyed and we will return.

Great service, beautiful room, nicely prepared classic Greek dishes — though not as exciting flavors as you’d find in Astoria with higher prices. Is a solid neighborhood spot for a date with my wife.

The service was unprofessional and inexperienced. The menu was explained terribly and we were served the prix fixe despite explicitly saying we did not want it. We waited for an hour and 15 minutes and the food still had not come so we left.

Food was good, value was fair. Service was non-existent. They need significantly more waitstaff during the dinner rush. Asks (even for more wine) were constantly forgotten and it took forever to get the waiter’s attention.

Faros is our go to family occasion local restaurant, but this is the first time we went for brunch on Sunday.
The brunch specials are very nice, coming with mimosa or bloody mary, but we didnt have them as they were not Greek specialties. We had the delicious Avgolemono soup....just perfect amount of lemon in the chicken base. The other never to disappoint dish is the moussaka with meat and vegetables in its individual crock. Excellent. Wait staff very attentive and pleasant.

Service was very limited. They need at least one more waiter. We told them we were in a rush but it still took 45 minutes from the time we ordered to get our food. We had to ask for them to check on the food or it never would have come. Same with getting the check. Food was good but I will never go back. The owner was not remotely welcoming. Just asked if I had a reservation and then ignored me. The restaurant is a bizarre shape- long and narrow - do not sit near the entrance.

Faros has been one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants since it opened. Nice space, a good selection of tasty Greek food, and friendly service. For Valentine's Day, the service was friendly as ever if a bit slower. As is the case at many restaurants on special occasion days, there was a more limited prix fixe menu at a total price higher than what we usually pay other times. Not a big deal, just a reminder that going to a restaurant on a special occasion day can often involve some tradeoffs.

A must go....I have dined at Faros several times and have always experienced the food well prepared, tasty and visually appealing. This was no exception. Though with a small group we only had 2 different dishes, they were delicious. The moussaka is done in an oven baked croc as an individual portion...It is somewhat nontraditional in that it includes potato, eggplant, zucchini, ground sirloin layered and baked in a bechamel sauce. It is excellent. The other dish we ordered was the baked tilapia with what we substituted as greek style rice instead of plain pilaff. Greek style rice includes spinach and tomato and is totally delicious. Both the fish and the rice are seasoned perfectly and balanced eachother well. The greek style rice pudding and very sweet Greek espresso style coffee finished the meal perfectly.

One of our favorite restaurants in the area, every meal here has been a 10. We have come both for quiet date nights and large celebration gatherings with space to easily accommodate 8 at a round table. Service is always great. Excellent dishes include the Tzatziki, Hummus, Mussels, Marouli salad, Gemista, and the Grilled Chicken with Rice Pilaf–the most tender chicken I have ever had. A quiet neighborhood gem that truly delivers.

Faros has a great ambience with exposed brick walls, a Mediterranean style fireplace on each of its two floor, Greek music floating in the air and lovely outside seating areas on each floor. The service is very pleasant and they are very accommodating to specific needs. The food seemed to be very fresh and was tasty but if you like salt, as I do, start out your meal making sure there's a salt shaker on the table.

Disappointed with the knowledge of the waiters we sat down four of us
everything was going good until they brought us the bread with complementary dish of two olives something like hummus and beans so I proceeded to ask the waiter we all four can we have two additional hours he said I’m sorry no because this is only complementary and that started the downward trend of our evening he wentTo ask someone and came back with five more olives I think that the service could’ve been a little bit better overall otherwise I had the lamb shank and it was out of this world

I've had meals here with groups of friends three times now, and each visit has been very enjoyable. My friends remark most of all on the quality of the cooking and ingredients, and also on the friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The wait staff is helpful, and there's never been any problem with reservations. It's become my go-to restaurant when friends visit.
