I showed up on time but it was closed when I got there. Their voicemail greeting said they were open, OpenTable said they were open. I drove 90 min round trip, only to be disappointed

The pomegranate chicken was on the dry side, veggies were cold and under cooked. Portion size was ok .
Spaghetti Bolognese was lukewarm.
I can only give it a 3 stars on food .
Our waiter was very attentive, service was good .

Service was slow. Only a few other customers on a Sunday am. Waiter/bar tender didn’t know how to make a certain drink- which is a pretty basic brunch drink. Food was ok. Overall disappointed with the experience. Prices are fair though.

Went on Vday so the service was a little slow but it was excellent. The sauce on the prawns was great. The chicken kabob was juicy and tender. The ravioli was delicious. I wish there was more in the serving. Great experience. Would definitely return on a non holiday.

Food was good. However, service was very slow and inattentive. Dessert didn’t match the menu description which was disappointing. Worth another try just to see if the just had a bad night.

My girlfriends and I went to FAZ because one of my friends recommended it and has been there before. The service was terrible. It took one hour for the waiter to ask us if we needed help and if we were ready to order. The food was good and we all enjoyed our meal.

Understanding it was New Years Eve. Our server stopped by only once at our table. We had to contact another server to get a takeout bag. Fish was dry with no flavor, as was the mashed potatoes. I was a bit disappointed with overall experience

My mom and I were enjoying our Christmas brunch and chatting and catching up. While we were eating our meal, the hostess, Julia, interrupted us and told us we had to vacate our table by 1:30 for another reservation...this was in 16 minutes. My mom said, We haven't eaten dessert and had coffee yet. She said, regardless, you have to give your table, thanks. It was puzzling because there were four empty tables nearby. Later, after we had left, I noticed that our table was available, and no one was being seated there. Apparently the other party were seated at another available table. Needless to say, she ruined our Christmas brunch. The food was hit or miss. The French toast was dense and flavorless, but the Mediterranean carrots were divine. The prime rib was cold and tough, but the baked salmon was flavorful and cooked perfectly. We come to Faz for special occasions because my mom lives and works nearby. But this recent experience and soured us on Faz. Not sure why they treat their customers this way. We've been eating at Faz regularly since they were in San Francisco's Financial District in the 80s. A big disappointment.

THANKSGIVING BUFFET

Last night my family of four had Thanksgiving dinner at Faz's Thanksgiving buffet. What's the one thing that you don't want to see at a buffet? The restaurant running out of food, but Faz managed to do just that.

We had a 6 pm reservation. When we took our first run at the buffet the turkey in the serving dish was sad -- just a bunch of scraps, not a single slice of white meat turkey. My wife and kids passed it by. I found a staff person who, when asked, said, "Sure, I'll refresh it". After a short wait he brought out a beautiful platter of turkey, but my family was already seated and eating the scraps they'd dished for themselves. I was heartily thanked by other diners, but really? No one should have to ask them to bring out sliced white meat turkey at a Thanksgiving buffet.

I took an initial look at the deserts. There was a wonderful apple cobbler, sitting in a warming dish. When it was time for desert, no cobbler. "Sorry, we ran out". They did bring out some cold apple pie as a consolation prize.

The salad and side dishes were very good. Notably, the other entree beside the turkey, the prime rib was just OK. The real meat parts were good, but it was very fatty.

Finally, the service by the staff was excellent.

We still had a fun time being with each other, and there was no food prep work for us, no clean up, etc. But Faz, which is a pretty good restaurant, should've done better for $52 per person.

Went for Thanksgiving dinner (buffet style). Wasn’t sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and everything was warm and rapidly replenished. Nice service from our waiter and attentive busboys cleared plates as needed. It was very crowded and loud but that kind of added to the holiday ambiance. All staff was very pleasant. Would go again.

This was our 3rd year to do Thanksgiving at faz and by far the food was not nearly as good it was cold we had to ask for things to get refilled and the set up was very disorganized. We decided we will not be coming back next year. It was expensive for a very disappointing meal I would have rather gone to my family's house to eat period!

Meal was way overpriced. A lot of the food in the buffet was dried out. Nothing was labeled so you didn’t know what the items were. Even the coffee carafes were unlabeled so you didn’t know which contained hot water, regular or decaf. The cream and sugar were empty. The dessert level was at the bare minimum, felt like we were getting leftovers. Tables had paper on top of them. No table decorations. No high chair or booster seat for our one year old. No way was the meal worth the $300 we spent for 4 people.

The mother's day buffet was simply not very good, most things were left out too long and were overcooked and dried out. That's simply not acceptable for a $52/person buffet.

The food was not tasty at all. Asked waitress if there was fresh squeezed juice as advertised on the menu. She said yes orange juice. It was not fresh squeezed. My son had the breakfast buffet. They took away the food at the buffet station before he had a chance to get a second plate. They came around once to refill the coffee before they brought the check. The ceiling corners had large cobwebs. We are not coming back.
