It was pleasant and I will try it again. One should not judge by one dish. Perhaps poor choice of meal, but it did not look like what I expected and really how no appealing taste - could not even ID the ingredients and had to confirm I got the correct thing that I ordered. Only recommend to friend with qualifiers.

We went for brunch and it was amazing! The breakfast potatoes that come with the benedict are killer! And they have a bloody mary special! Our waiter was great and personable, and the decor/furniture is really cool.

We enjoy coming to Fado almost every Sunday for brunch. They have the best breakfast in Columbus, with a full Irish Breakfast that includes 3 kinds of meat/sausage, eggs, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Monte and Sean are very accommodating and we look forward to watching EPL and Bundesliga soccer games every weekend. Highly recommended!

Patio seating overlooking river and new bridge was fantastic! We could have sat there all afternoon. Guinness pours are best in town!

Fantastic food, and given we're in a pandemic, I have to note that their social-distancing was SPOT ON. We were comfortable the whole time, and are still raving about the food and service. Everything was more than worth it!

The Sheppard’s Pie was excellent! Overall a great experience. The inside dining room was excellent. We weren’t given an option to eat outside where it might not have been so noisy.

My wife and I were looking for something that we have never done before. Fado came up and had a restaurant week special and we thought we would give it a shot. We both ordered the schnitzel special and enjoyed every bit of it! Definitely somewhere we will come back to in the future!

Had reservations on a Friday, we’re seated quickly despite it being a bit busy considering Covid and the place looked nice. The waitress pretty much ignored our table most of the night though. When she finally took our order the food arrived pretty quickly and one thing (fish and chips) was pretty good but the corned beef sandwich was really bad, the bread was very dry and the beef wasn’t much better. We would have given them a chance to rectify but we basically never saw the waitress again and my wife only had one drink because we didn’t get a chance to order another. Maybe we got the worst thing on the menu but not worth trying again because the service was lacking and there are so many other good places right next door.

All the food were great. Shared a bunch of apps and I had the Shepherds Pie for dinner. I really enjoyed. Spacing between table was wide and safe. Good Friday night with colleagues.

One of the best patios in Dublin - they understand social distancing and safety too!

The bar selection is awesome, and the Bourbon might be the best list in town! Go for the must drink Weller Full Proof barrel that they have!

Super friendly, and great food most importantly.

Must Go!

We were greeted by the GM, he’s very nice. I met him the last time I was there for dinner. Their brunch menu is awesome and has a variety to choose from. My fave is Breakfast tacos or the Farmer’s breakfast. The hostess as well as our server (John) were very friendly. Excellent customer service as always!

Had a birthday dinner for a group of 4 outside on the patio in the shade. Food was very good. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Staff that I could see appeared COVID aware and compliant with the restaurant's protocols.

Monty and Sean were gracious hosts, as they are every time we visit. The Irish Coffee is very enjoyable, the Irish Breakfasts are the best in town, and the questions from our out-of-town friend were answered quickly. I appreciate the ability to have a relaxing completely enjoyable experience, while still feeling "socially distant" from the other clientele.

Steak was decent. Not cooked medium as requested. Had a birthday - left that in the occasions comment and waiter said nothing... disappointing. Double shot of bourbon was more like a 1/2 shot.
