    A spacious place for lunch where our 2 special needs grandchildren could enjoy their meal in a relaxed environment where no one was rushed. The food was fantastic. Our server was very accommodating and accessible.

    The lamb burger and rosemary truffle fries were really good. The burger was one of the best I've had in a long time. The star of this meal however, was the blue cheese sauce. I would eat that on a shoe! It was perfectly balanced between funk and cool creaminess. The crab dip was really good too. It was like a rich creamy crabcake, without the breadcrumbs, very good. Enjoyed this place very much. 3 or 3 guests had maybe a few too many and got loud, but not too bad. All and all, I will be back and definitely recommend this place. Oh, the Ky flight of bourbon was an amazing selection of 4 roses bourbon, which I highly recommend too.

    Tried the Brussels salad for the first time (because it’s so difficult not to choose the beet salad). It did not disappoint! The seafood risotto was outstanding. Our server was friendly and attentive. Just a great lunch experience!

    The food was delicious and the service was great. The only negative to say is that the volume within the restaurant was very loud, there were times when I had to almost yell for my date to hear me.

    Sunday brunch - eggs were cold, bacon practically raw. Asked for better cooked bacon and it came out after everyone at table was finished eating. It was also burned beyond recognition at that point. Restaurant wasn’t very crowded, so don’t understand slow service and poor quality. Will not be back.

    Fado was very busy tonight hosting a private event, so it was a little noisier than normal. Our waitress was busy, however another waitress stepped in to help. Drinks and food were good as always.

    This restaurant is consistently top notch. I expect and receive warm and wonderful service from the time I enter until I say goodbye on my way out the door. I love that the menu has something for everyone and no matter what I pick, it's good. The drink options are great, and I've never had a bad cocktail here. The beer list is varied and fresh. You can get a proper pour of Guinness here, if that's your thing. Did I mention it's gorgeous? In this modern, laid-back kind of way, it is simply lovely. The staff is some of the best in town and are there to help me enjoy myself, recommending the newest items and reminding me of old favorites. I love how they care about the people who come in. I was treated like a treasured guest from my first visit on. I highly recommend giving this place a try. You won't be disappointed.

    We have been to Fado several times. It seems to be hit or miss. Last night my husband and I went with some friends. All 4 of us commented to each other how the food was just not good. We got the chicken lollipops and they were average at best- the skin tasted like my mom’s old shake n bake with a kick. Wouldn’t order again. We also ordered the pretzel - it was good. Two of us got the brick chicken and it was extremely dry, and the brussel sprouts were soggy. My husband got the chicken harvest sandwich and his first comment was “would you like a side of sandwich with your fries?” The sandwich was abnormally small and the taste was so-so. Our other friend got the BLT type sandwich and said it was “eh”. Our server was very nice and attentive given how busy it was. It is extremely loud- it was a busy night, but it would really use some sound deadening panels or something. We all felt like we were shouting over each other to talk.

    Price is what you expect for a nice meal in Columbus. The place has a great atmosphere and the staff is super accommodating and nice. Honestly wouldn’t usually write reviews but the experience deserved it. We’ve been here a few times and yet to have a bad meal. Food and drinks have always been delicious.

    Stopped by for happy hour on a Friday. Great deals on drinks and food. Our waiter checked on us quite often and very friendly! The Brussels Sprouts salad was good but the salmon was just a little over cooked but flavorful. The appetizers were great! We had the chicken lollipops, the pretzel, and salmon bites. We will be back.

    The Fish and Chips are outstanding everyone in our party had them. They are the best in Columbus. We also love the Salmon Bites and look forward to them every time we visit. Everything we've tried at Fado is consistently excellent. The Bourbon selections are also superb and the perfect accompaniment to our meals. Megan was a wonderful waitress - she engaged with our 6 year old grandson and made his experience especially enjoyable. She was also efficient and friendly with all the adults. Thank You, Megan.

    Cannot speak to much, as we sat in a tool with a group of 6 and another table of 2. Watched three service staff and a bartender enter the room, assist patrons, then go talk in the main area. After at least ten minutes of flat out being ignored, we walked out. Made sure to let management type people who were chatting at the food window know that we sat and couldn’t get a courtesy ‘we see and acknowledge you exist’ from anyone in the staff. Went elsewhere for my birthday, some place that wanted us there. If they were busy I ‘may’ have understood, but it was pretty empty. I guess we know why.
