Small but good menu

Can't speak to the reviews that felt Faz is not good, but our experiences have been positive. They have shortened their menu but we've found the food and service to be quite good. It's not inexpensive, but we don't feel it's overpriced. Only had one visit where service was lacking. We were outdoors... read more

They offer breakfast buffet. For dinner, I had the chicken kabob with saffron rice which is very tasty.

The live music at the FAZ during happy hour is fantastic - particularly after a hard day of travel. It's always entertaining and lively at the FAZ & the food is GREAT - much of it cooked in a stone wood-fire oven. FASTASTIC!!!

I've been to this restaurant once and will never go back. Food was not good. Would never recommend this place. Prices are way too high for what you don't get.

Four of us ate Sunday Brunch at Faz-Pleasanton. In a word, poor. It was empty and the food was fair at best. The fresh fruit was without flavor. I could have gotten better tasting pineapple, watermelon and cantaloupe at a local grocery. The blintzes looked like egg roll-not how a blintz should be prepared. I could not even finish the...

I will definitely never return here to eat. I found the New York strip steak to be very fatty, plus they over-cooked it. The service was almost non-existant and their prices are way too high. Maybe their buffet is better but I'll never find out. Once was enough for me.

Our family of ten enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner at FAZ's restaurant (our fourth year). The buffet was once again outstanding!!! Everyone raved about how delicious everything tasted. We had a lovely table overlooking the garden area and the service was great!!! I believe FAZ's is now a family tradition. Kudos to Faz, the owner, and Gregory Rogers, General Manager, for... More

Actually less than 1 star. We have done the last four Thanksgivings at this establishment. The first three years were fantastic. This year was the twilight zone. They will not be getting our annual $1,0000.00 + tab again. They put us upstairs in a "large room". The dining set up was pathetic, the service was pathetic, the selection of food... More

I loved the salads and wine selection. The breakfast needs some veggies. Happy hour is very busy here.
