The menu and quality atmosphere at Fadó will reset your expectation around what it means to eat at an Irish Pub. There is a broad range of snacks for sharing and fantastic burgers and sandwiches. The star of our entrée section is our Fish and Chips which uses sustainably caught cod from the deep waters off of Iceland. You’ll also see Irish staples like Shepherd’s Pie and Corned Beef and Cabbage. We take great pride in our seasonal menu which changes regularly.

We are known for our cocktail selection with an emphasis on Irish spirits, a broad range of local craft beers and, of course, the best Pint of Guinness in Atlanta.

Our calling card is our hospitality and everything you see in the pubs was built in Ireland and shipped to the U.S.A.

Normally a good meal, but even though I reminded the restaurant, they failed to enter my reservation so that I could get credit for it. I called afterwards once and never heard back. I called again, and the manager, a man, was friendly, apologetic and he promptly credited me. I normally have the fish and chips, which are excellent. This time I tried the Sheppard Pie. It was not as good and proportionally a bit small. I would not order it again.

When we arrived after having made a reservation we were told someone had sat at our table and there was nothing they could do about it. Then the staff made it seem as though we were really putting them out to accommodate us anyway. Our waitress was very nice but because we were ‘accommodated’ she wasn’t able to get to us as much as was needed. Also one of our meals was completely forgotten about but thankfully was comped. The food was very good and fairly priced but the price of wine seemed outrageous after receiving our bill. Granted, we didn’t ask so in truth that was our error but still seemed excessive. All in all it did put a damper on our night so the service here needs some work.

Happy hour choices were very good, particularly the salmon and the fried goat cheese. Excellent service and perfect for a bite to eat before a show at Buckhead Theater, which is just around the corner.

Our server wasn’t trained well . If he was he didn’t listen . I had to find my own silverware , server brought water and 2 glasses stacked , he put them on the table and walked away , I ordered unsweet tea and asked for sweetener and discovered they don’t have any but the server that brought our food asked a coworker if she had some sweetener she usually brings her own. I made reservations through open table , is was seat yourself and I asked server if I can still get points and check me in . He said he didn’t know what I was talking about and if a had a card to punch . I said no it’s an app . Eventually he said he’d ask his manager . I eventually received my points. The food is always good at Fados . Wait staff needs better training and follow up . Even though the food is good , because if service continues to be poor I’d definitely go to another restaurant.

Host and manager were super accommodating. Found us seats and got my game on a nearby TV. Thought the avocado toast with salmon and the tacos off the brunch menu were excellent

I would have preferred the roof terrace, but it is always reserved for groups. The food and the service are good, great atmosphere.

Nothing special. Appetizers were great. Entrees were ok. Service was pretty slow for there not to have been many patrons there. Overall, it was ok.

Fado's in Buckhead is a beautiful pub with good food. We made a mistake thinking it would be a little more like a restaurant than a pub. We had older folks with us and the noise level made it hard to visit.

Parking is difficult, valet is $10 on the weekends, ridiculous. Food was good, or great. Service was fine, not very friendly. Won’t be back.

I hope it was an off day. Went there for lunch on Good Friday and hardly anyone was there. Our server acted like he was sorry he had to wait on his 3rd table that day. Took way to long to get our drinks. Again, will give it another shot, as I hope this isn't a trend and that it is going downhill.

Great Irish pub -- authentic feel. Love the lamb sandwich, shepherd's pie, thick cut fries, and pretzel. Of course, the Guinness is delightful!

Great place to watch a game! The only drawback is they continued to play music while Duke vs. UVA men's basketball was on. It would have been nice to hear the broadcast.

Fados is our go to on the weekend for a Manchester United game. While we’ve made the trip to Fado’s before for big games, this is the first time we’ve used open table to make reservations for a Sunday game. I was sooo pleased to see a prime spot in front of the projector was actually reserved!! Top five stars for that. We come to fados over the other football/soccer pubs in the area for the brunch and bottomless mimosas that never disappoints. Thank you for keeping my reservation on an busy Sunday morning !! Recommendations for brunch are the eggs Benedict and pancakes ... pancakes are delicious.
