Popped in here for a quick drink. Only stayed for 1 as the place felt soulless. No atmosphere, slow service and disjointed. We will re visit as we are certain this was just one of those nights

Every time we come to DC, my wife and I stop by Fado Irish Pub. This is an accidental tradition, but one we have come to enjoy. The staff is friendly and the drinks are good!

I really enjoyed this pub. It has a modern twist on traditional Irish fare. It has great food and large beer and other drink selection. I'll be back.

As I'm Irish I suppose I should preface the remarks by saying its not a bad example of an Irish pub and many pubs in Ireland look similar however beer and wine are expensive even for DC.

Nothing like finding a traditional Irish Pub in Washington D.C. Even better was our waiter Elliot is from Britain, in an Irish Pub in China Town area of Washington D.C. Shepherds Pie was good as was the Fish and Chips. Service was friendly and helpful.

Ok so our burgers were a little undercooked but the music was loud so I assume the waiter misheard us. The beer was good and I love the decor.
