    The people and servers are great, but the ambiance is generic and the food was only ok, very overpriced for the quality.

    It was uncomfortably warm in the restaurant. When we asked the Server about it she made a rude comment about how she would rather be hot than cold....which was not helpful at all. The service was also poor. Our server was slammed and our drinks took forever and she had to come back a few times because she couldn't remember what we ordered.

    Overall a great place. Nice ambiance, vibe, service and decor. The people were friendly and food was great. I only gave 4 stars for the food part of the review (all else 5 stars) as my husband did not like his steak but the other 5 people all enjoyed their food. We will definitely go again!

    Went to sample some happy hour offerings. We really liked the Sangria and mule. The salmon bites and chicken lollipops were very good. The hamburger was sub par, no flavor, not very large (we split it), the side salad substituted for fries was delicious. The back room on Riverside is lovely, but was progressively louder when only half full. John our waiter was very attentive. We’ve had the lamb burger previously and liked that a lot.

    We asked for a table where it’s less noisy, but they put us in the noisiest room they had. The fries were soggy. It was expensive for just an ok experience.

    My husband knew our server and that was the only decent part of our experience. We ordered mussels from the St. Patrick’s Day menu which weren’t properly cleaned. We also both ordered the filet with asparagus, a salad, and colcannon. The steaks were prepared pretty much at the right temperature but there was zero flavor. The asparagus was average, the salad wasn’t properly dressed, and the colcannon was extremely dry. We paid almost $150 for an underwhelming meal and still left hungry. Unfortunately, we’ve crossed this place off of our date options.

    Disappointed this visit, had the beef stew special recommended by our waiter. Was missing the beef and was mostly mashed potatoes and gravy. What beef was in it was cubed and tough. Would not recommend. Wife's seafood entree was a very small portion.

    We have been going to Fado for several years. The food quality has gone down. Crab dip was awe full and salmon cold. Very disappointed. For the price one pays there are better restaurants in the area.
