This was a good restaurant, I enjoyed both the food and the Martinis. The waitstaff was very good every time we went. They also had a piano player while you were dining. They Closed in July 2015

Faial's features Portuguese dishes, prepared perfectly along with classics like Maine lobster (once had a 3lb baked stuffed that was amazing), steaks, seafood, chops. Attentive staff and warm welcome! Enjoy!!
