The food was excellent. We sat outdoors, therefore the ambience is great. We always feel we get excellent value at Faz. The service was not as good as usual but adequate. Thanks for a good evening.

Excellent Mediterranean food. Kebobs are great. other menu items are always fresh with good flavors. Beautiful dining area looking towards redwood trees in outdoor courtyard. Makes for a very enjoyable dinner.

Food is surprisingly amazing here. Simple, classic recipes, but prepared very well and -- hallelujah -- SEASONED correctly -- THANK YOU, Faz, for that. My friend ordered a lamb dish, which he found super tasty and moist, and he loved the sides too, and I had the special, which was grilled sturgeon with saffron scallion sauce and extra steamed veggies (no potatoes). The fish was perfectly cooked, moist and lovely, the sauce was freaking AMAZING, and the veggies were properly cooked and seasoned well.

We ordered the chocolate raspberry cake for dessert, but unfortunately that was a miss. Too much raspberry overwhelmed the chocolate, the dish was too sweet, and it definitely did not taste fresh -- I would guess it was refrigerated or frozen and then thawed. We will definitely skip dessert next time.

We both ordered a glass of the Hess cab, which is a solid choice (one that I have had before), however it was served a bit closer to room temperature than I would have liked.

The service was ok. I definitely found it a little strange that in addition to making a note on my reservation, and calling in advance to make sure they would allow my dog on the patio (and was told yes), that I then had trouble when I arrived with him -- the host had to bring his manager out to OK it. Also, the service was a bit slow throughout the meal, despite it being very quiet and not busy at all. On the plus side, they were kind enough to turn the heating lamp on for us, which was appreciated!

However, the food was so good that I am sure we will be back. And the outdoor patio is very lovely on a summer night!

Do not eat late in the day of buffet-food was sitting in steam trays for hours and not fresh
Ran out of prime rib and offered tri tip, they did prepare a fresh steak and asparagus platter to our table and that was very good. No hummus available. Very disappointing. Mother's Day buffet was good last year

VERY slow and inattentive service. We also found the room extremely hot, but when we mentioned it to the waiter, he just shrugged and muttered something - no offer to move us to a different table, or even to the patio, although there were a multitude of empty tables available.

Faz has one of the nicest outdoor seating areas anywhere in Northern California -- a grove a large mature coastal redwood trees. We were promptly seated and drinks orders were taken. My wife and I shared pomegranate chicken, one of our favorites at Faz. Our friends each had a large salad. The food was delicious and the service great and the setting perfect.

Five of us dined at Faz on a Tuesday evening. It was a quiet night - just a few other groups of diners - but the service was friendly and leisurely. Just what we wanted for our get-together. We were well taken care of by the waiter and didn't feel rushed.
The food was delicious. Not too big of a menu, which leaves me confident that ingredients are fresh. My one criticism might be that the menu was light on vegetarian options.
The indoor and outdoor dining areas are beautiful. The redwood trees around the outdoor patio, lit by strings of lights, are so pretty. I would have a wedding there! There's even plenty of parking.

Once again, Faz was a wonderful experience. This restaurant is fast becoming one of my favorites. The food is outstanding, the service is attentive, intelligent and friendly. You truly feel like you're a family member by the warm welcome and personal attention. Additionally, the setting for the Danville restaurant is gorgeous. The open courtyard with the twinkling lights, waterfall in the background and towering redwoods make for an enchanting setting. I plan to go back often!

We went for the Mother's Day Brunch. We arrived on time and were seated right away. We were seated near the waterfall. We were brought water out right away. We noticed other tables getting served that were seated after us, at least 4 tables. It was a buffet so we served ourselves. My husband stayed at the table in case the server arrived, they didn't. My husband served himself at the buffet and still no server. This is going on 20 minutes when other new tables continue to get served. I finally went to the bar to get a drink. They tried to get me to go sit and wait for a server, luckily, the bartender gave me a Mimosa. Someone finally came to our table but appeared to be a busboy instead of a server. He did bring coffee for my husband, I had to go hunt him down for a 2nd coffee. Love the food, but they really need to step up their service.

Nothing, absolutely nothing wrong with Faz Danville...starting with its own parking lot; so wasting time looking to store the car is not needed. And the patio with its fountain and live Redwoods was a quiet restful place to enjoy our meals. The party of five had 3 lamb shanks, chicken kabob, and veal. All were cooked to a T: shanks were moist and fork tender, chicken dry (the way the eater likes it), and the veal was tasty. The drinks came quickly and were mixed with the best of everything. Then desert...OMG, bombas, tall mounds of ice cream slathered in sweet sauces. And the mocha coffee was to perfection. The bill, including drinks and deserts, averaged $60 per person; not cheap but well worth it. Highly recommended...like Arnold has been quoted, "I'll be back."

There just was no seasoning to the food. I had sea bass with avocado sauce and my wife had the veal. My meal was better than hers as the avocado made it much better than than it actually was.

I was told the clientele is much older and the food is seasoned for them, should I say “not seasoned” for them.

The restaurant appears to be in a former hotel. The entrance was a little wonky because of it. They have a lovely patio area with a serene water feature, plenty of heating lamps, privacy, and romantic overhead lighting. I highly recommend sitting outside if the weather permits. While this may not influence your decision, the hostess was dressed for a strip club and was not in keeping with the rest of the conservatively and modestly dressed staff. There was nothing special about the food. It was good, but no unique flavors or twists. The manager and waitress were both friendly and attentive.
