David was the best waiter we’ve had in a long time. Prompt, courteous, makes a mean margarita and went above and beyond.
Fish and chips, Filet mignon and Brussels sprouts/parsnips were wonderful.
The noise was mainly from a table of drinking men. Probably not that noisy normally.
Will be back for sure!

This place is such a gem. Great food, gorgeous atmosphere and wonderful staff. The food was so good - traditional favorites and some creative new dishes you don’t find anywhere else. Parking is easy. Love being able to stroll through bridge park afterwards.

We love coming to Fado. Last night was the third time in the past month. Just an all around fun establishment. Our server Ashley was super! We'll be back again in December. Happy Holidays!

My husband and I eat at Fado's almost weekly. What we frequently enjoy is the Irish Breakfast while watching European soccer games Saturday and Sunday mornings. Tonight we tried two dishes from their seasonal menu and we can't say enough good things about the dinner we enjoyed. I ordered the Winter Brussels Salad, which was
displayed much like a Cobb Salad with thinly shaved Brussels sprouts as the base, with roasted butternut squash, cranberries, pecans, asiago cheese, hard boiled egg, and bacon with a creamy maple dressing. My husband
ordered the Tenderloin Filet Mignon, Oscar style, where the filet was so tender, it “melted like butter” in his mouth. Simply an amazing meal!

Seated right away but took awhile for our waitress to come over. Food was good but VERY small portions. Not worth the money

Ate here for brunch, and we had trouble with our food being warm… everything was lukewarm from the coffee to the entrees. Eggs were not cooked as requested. Service was attentive and friendly. I’m sure they would have made everything right if we had complained more, but after you send a few things back for being cold or incorrect, it gets uncomfortable having to be ‘that table’. Way too many things were not quite right, though.

Kevin was an absolutely wonderful waiter. Excellent recommendations for what to try, and I like that the menu is small. They showed great care in the little amount of food they actually do offer. It's very pricy but well worth it for a date night :)

Great salad. Incredible service. We originally were going to sit at the “chefs” table and watch food prep but that didn’t really lend to good conversation and so we moved and our server was amazing.

The goat cheese appetizer is amazing. You need to provide more of them in an order; four isn't enough. Fish and chips was amazing as was the pasta carbonara. Wasn't a big fan of the crab dip nor the shrimp appetizer, but overall everything was wonderful. Pumpkin cheesecake was very good. The back room is beautiful, but it was really noisy and hard to converse with all the people present at noon. Great to see that you were busy! Would recommend for more intimate outings to be outside or in the room with the bar if you want to be able to hear one another better. Another great meal! We'll be back!

We had our son and daughter-n-law’s Rehearsal Dinner here last month. We were already Fado fans, but our experience with the Rehearsal Dinner was over the top! The staff was AMAZING, the food was perfect, and the atmosphere was exceptional. I cannot say enough good things about management to servers to bar staff - all were AWESOME! They made planning the event stress free. Would recommend Fado for any special occasion!!

I think we definitely got a new server. Appetizer and food all came out at once? Took a very very long time to even get the food. I asked for another beverage when food arrived and asked another server at the end of our meal if he could find our server. Food spot on but really disappointed with service.
