We are regular FAZ customers and I have to say that Friday 12/8/17 was the worst ever. They have a new server that was not attentive to her customers at all. She is definitely not fit for a busy restaurant. We received one drink after 15 mins and then had to wait another 15 mins for the others that were all ordered together. The food was not the same as maybe Mr. Faz was not the chef that evening. We will try going again and if no changes we are done. Manager was not checking on his customers either, I do hope this is not the permanent changes for Faz (food and service)

Great location, food and service. Fresh baked bread from the brick oven with garlic and olive oil dip. Appetizer platter with Humus, tabolli, baba ganoush,olives and peppercini. Rack of lamb and lamb shank are our favorite. You can tell that professional management is in charge and makes sure the diners are well taken care of even on busy nights.

The best lamb around. Very friendly service and the owner is very committed to your dining experience.
One of our favorite dining experiences in the area.

Accommodating, nice environment & reasonably priced. My sons steak was requested as medium rare, but was served medium well. Rib eye was the thickest cut I have seen - 1 lbs. would go there again and be a little more picky about the preparation of my food. My shrimp pasta was excellent.

The Thanksgiving dinner was OK, but way too expensive. The prime rib serving was small, The food itself was fine, but for the price, not worth it.The bagels were hard and stale.The deserts were good.

My wife's leg of lamb was generous and delicious. My salmon didn't taste fresh so exchanged it for the mahi mahi. The new dish came quickly and was okay but the fish was a bit dry. They were nice enough to comp a dessert. I would give them another try.

The service was great. Started with the Mezze platter, it was wonderful. The Wedge salad was better than the Greek salad. French onion soup was on special and was great. The lamb shank is outstanding; chicken and lamb kebabs were a hit as well.

Maybe it was an off night but it was very off. Servers assistant gave salads to wrong individuals at table. When dinner came , it wasn't ours. There seemed to be a lot of confusion. Dinner was for two tables down from us. When our food came again confusion over who had what. Waitress kind of left us alone not checking on how we were doing. When the bill came it took a while to pay since we were using gift cards. It just seemed there was something wrong that night. Singer in bar didn't help as we all agreed he was terrible. We will visit again as this was our first mediocre experience at FAZ.

Evidently there was a banquet planned on the outside patio!
They definately did not have enough staff.
The staff the had did not seem to care about situation, nor did manager/owner!
Food was average. Probably due to rush on kitchen due to outside party

We went to Faz for the first time in September 2017, because we had a part of 5 and could not get in to any other good Danville place (Esin, Piatti's , Bridges, etc.) at our desired time of 6:30 pm. The place was empty when we arrived and I was worried that maybe there was a bad reason for that. However, the service was excellent and the food very good too. We will be going back. They had only three beers on tap and a limited wine selection, but luckily we found items we liked.

We had friends from Sacramento area over on Wednesday night so we decided to go dinner at Faz in Danville not only because of the food but also due to beautiful outdoor setting especially in the evening with the outdoor lights on. It was a Wednesday evening I think that they were having a slow night we had no problem moving from one table to another due to squirrels jumping from tree to tree and twigs were falling from the beautiful redwoods which helps make the ambience even better.
We started inside at the bar during happy hour, all 4 of us had a cocktail and also wine, we all felt that the bartender wasn't to friendly but the drinks were ok. They had a large group of people that hang out at the bar they come twice a month on Wednesday's to sing play piano and just have some fun. We listen to a couple people sing before we were seated at our table outside we were able to pick our table due to being so quite. The flat bread and dip was delicious. We enjoyed our wine an appetizer before ordering dinner our server Liz was very good she has a great attitude also very patience with us on ordering also helping us with our questions that we had about the menu, food was served hot and on a timely fashion between courses. Needless to say everyone was very happy with their meal.
We will go back and will also recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.

Enjoyed sharing a meal with my adult son and we spent the entire evening talking until closing time. The staff was accommodating and helpful.
At first we were placed at a very small table over the A/C vent by a very noisy group. But when we asked we were moved to a nice table by the window where the noise level didn't interfere with our ability to converse.
Since it was only one week past my birthday we were served a delicious Tiramisu. Thank you so much for this added pleasure!

Celebrated a birthday. I normally love the outside atmosphere but we got invaded by wasps this time so we moved inside. The Mahi mahi was tasty and my husband got a cheesecake with a candle for his birthday treat. Server was very attentive. I have been to Faz several times and always enjoy it.

This is a wonderful place. There was a concert on a nearby street that added to the noise level. Without it (normal,) it would have been great. Their in-house piano player provides delightful dinner music. Service was a little slow, but a good-natured waiter and people-watching made it not a problem. They seemed to be short-staffed that night. Food was great. I recommend.

The courtyard is beautiful... like sitting in a Tahoe resort surrounded by redwoods. Food is always good, especially the flatbreads. They aren't open for lunch or on Sundays which is sad, but a favorite of ours. The manager always stops by each table to be sure that his guests are well taken care of.

Been going to Faz for years now, but don't go often enough, partially because the restaurant isn't open on Sunday or Monday, two nights that we would typically want to go out to avoid some of the Friday/Saturday night crowds. But this time we did visit with a friend of ours visiting from SF, and he was in awe of the wonderful redwood filled back deck area, where we had our dinner. The setting is wonderful, the food above par, and the service was excellent. Definitely recommend it as the menu isn't pricey, food is tasty, and the portions are nicely sized.
