Stopped in here for a late lunch. Not crowded at all. Food was good and the Guiness was good. Our server was very helpful. Actually cam back here on a Friday night and the place was jammed. Hot place! I would come back here again.

Shepard's Pie and Fish & Chips were great, and the prices were reasonable. The service was acceptable, but not totally welcoming. Four stars for the food, prices, and convenience of location.

This was another stop on our bar tour around the Verizon Center. I'm from Philly and this Fado was very similar to the Philly location. Great bar, good food, good drinks.

Yes, there shouldn't be an issue because this is also a restaurant and I have seen families with under age children in Fado's having a meal.
