“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

We had dinner at FSG last night with friends who live in the area and had recommended the restaurant. The dining area is small and can be a bit noisy from all the conversations going on, but the atmosphere was very festive, and it was clear that the diners were having a good time. The menu selection and specials had a lot of variety. The food was delicious (I had baked shrimp mac & cheese, pan seared breast of duckling, and peanut butter creme brulee, all from the current menu). All who worked there were friendly and very helpful (including when I left my purse on my chair as we prepared to head home---thank you so much for alerting me!!). We really enjoyed FSG and would certainly return.

“Very good spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

This place is small so make reservations. We visited on a weeknight for dinner and had a great meal. The fixed price menu for three courses (appetizer, entree, dessert) was comprehensive and offered something for everybody in our party of 4. We tried the duck, pork chop and lamb shank entrees and all were delicious. Bonus that it is BYOB. Service was excellent. We will be back.

“Great Place to Celebrate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

The Fayette Street Grille is a small place. It is so small that if two parties of four are waiting to be seated, as was our case, the hostess and waitress setting up the tables have to squeeze between the customers to accomplish their job. The size of the place reinforces the impression that it is always crowded. It is also responsible for the loud volume of voices and clatter throughout your visit. While I usually prefer quiet, cozy, romantic settings, under special circumstances, the hustle-bustle can stage the right setting. This was one of those times. We were dining with friends we hadn't seen for almost a year. We had a lot of catching up and story telling to do. A quiet restaurant might have generated complaints about our enthusiatic demeanor. Here we blended right in, completely unnoticed in the total clamor. We started with Escargot, prepared in an unusual way with spinach, tomato, gruyere and vermouth cream. Delicious! The French Onion soup with gruyere and provolone cheese was piping hot and tasty, well balanced in flavor and seasoning. Entrees were Pan Bronzed Mahimahi with dark rum coconut glaze, roasted asparagus and sweet potato mousse for my wife, Pan Seared Breast of Duckling with green peppercorn, triple sec and dried cranberry demi-glace with endive, green beans and sweet potato mousse for our male friend and the Braised Lamb Shank with garden vegetables served over risotto for me. Our female friend is a vegetarian. Pre-reading the menu on line, there were no listed alternatives for her. A call the day before assured her that they would prepare a suitable meal for her. She was very happy with the garden vegetable mix prepared in a vermouth cream (we think) and served over rice. All meals were excellent. Service was superb. We brought 2 bottles of different white wines, 3 different reds for dinner and a port to go with dessert. Ice, multiple glasses and cork popings were delivered seamlessly. We ordered coffee and 4 different desserts so we could all sample each. They included Rum Raison Rice Pudding, Peach Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream, Mango sorbet and Cheesecake. All were sinfully good. Once again, the Red Winer closed the place. The staff did not rush us nor ignore us. Even after the bill was paid they refilled our coffees and respected our conversation until we realized it was time to leave by the absence of the previous din. It was an exceptional dining experience.

“This dinner made my daughter's day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

First time there for my daughters birthday dinner. Also there was my wife and other daughter. They have a three course set menu at a fair price. I started off with a pork belly appetizer followed by a New York strip steak . Other dinners in the group Striped sea bass, Tuna and a scallop dinner . All the dinners were great, but wait for the desserts!!!! We all shared in portions of peanut butter creme brûlée , double chocolate cake ,peach cobbler and cheesecake. Needless to say we were very full and happy. Service was great and it's a BYOB.

“HIGHLY RECOMMEND--Under our noses the whole time...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

This place is simple, comfortable, and the food and service are above and beyond. It is a fixed menu, but it saves you the hassle and the research of going to Philly Restaurant Week for the "just right" three courses at a good price at any time of the year. We have lived in Conshohocken for almost two years and it took us far too long to sit for a meal at Fayette Street. I recommend sitting outside in the summer where you can enjoy the breeze at sunset and have the entertainment of people or cars going by. Our server was fantastic--she was extremely friendly and conversational, as well as attentive. Because it is a BYO it saves you money on that final bill, which is around $60ish for two people. It deserves the #1 rating it has.
