“Good Food and Ambiance”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

This eatery had a good selection of Irish ales, a pub atmosphere with rustic wood decor, but a well positioned set of flat-screen televisions for sports viewing. The food was wonderful, and the wait staff was very friendly and accommodating.

“Lots of Energy”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our gathering at this pub. There were seven of us and the place was busy but somehow we were accommodated. The waitress was very attentive although the place was hopping. Note: soccer on the TVs means lots of good natured noise. However, it did not interfere with our eating, drinking or chatting. The fish&chips were great and it was an large portion. This is a great pub environment.

“Chain Irish”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

JMJ They do a nice job of trying to look and feel like an Irish pub. The food was good especially the Guinness bread. They were accommodating to make my lamb sandwich into more of a stew and I appreciated that. The waitress was attentive but it was a busy time and the seats in the back left you a little out of the action. Maybe a romantic couple would have liked it better. Surprised to see them serving wine, but I hear DC is a wine town-Ireland only lately serves wine and not in some of the pubs. Tried to be Irish but still just a bar with food and an attempt-never heard one brough.

“Terrific Gathering”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I scheduled a reception at Fado for colleagues. The staff was most accommodating is reserving a portion of the pub for my group. They had our appitizers ready on time and we had wonderful service from Heather, our server. The cost was very reasonable; drinks were served quickly and also reasonable in price. We spent two hours there and had a rousing good time. Would certainly do that again.
