Stopped in on our way over to a harbor cruise/Pike Market. Very nice place, lovely staff, close location to the piers. Although it was early lunchtime, we had the Irish breakfast, which is offered all day. It was terrific.

We had a very good dinner here before starting our 'Beneath the streets' tour which starts just across the street from here so it was very convenient. It definitely has a bar feel to it but the food is way above your normal bar fare.

Excellent Irish pub, with dark interior, tables/snugs in nooks around the restaurant, phenomenal food, great service. Fado pubs may have the best Guinness pour in all of America. We ate the cheese dip and wedges app, and the Irish Breakfast, phenomenal. Great place to hang...More

Hungover on a Thursday morning so went to Fado for the cure. Irish breakfast and pot of tea hit the spot. Washed down with a couple of surprisingly great pints of G. If I lived here, I would live here

I found Fado very disappointing. Staff not friendly.. Not very conversationalist .. food was disappointing and tasteless.. The Chicken was like rubber and tasteless and bland . Its no more ''Irish'' than the staff who work in it.

We were looking for a place for lunch while walking around Pioneer Square and I love Irish pubs. They had a decent selection of beer but not my favorite Irish beer but it was okay. The food was tasty and typical pub style food.

We blend the best of the old with the best of the new. Our decor and friendly staff evoke images of the great old pubs of Ireland whereas our style of operating - our music, food, beverages - connects more so with the contemporary pubs and bars of modern Ireland.
