Stopped by for a post wedding rehearsal get together. Lively place with a good beer selection. We had a small room right off the entrance so our group could just hang out together. Very nice wait staff that was attentive to the groups needs.

Fado is a pretty good pub, even though it is a chain. The food is good, the beer selection is good, and the atmosphere is really cool.

They have original Leffe beer from the Tab. We had fries, hummus, salads. Staff are friendly. The place is cosy, the kitchen is close at 11 pm.

While other Irish pubs and bars were asking for a coverage fee Fado's was not! Score! The band they had playing was excellent. They played from 60's to current, rock, country, and pop. They had the crowd going, lots of singing and dancing. All ages were there celebrating St Patty's day, and even if you went there alone, you would... More

Honestly, have only eaten breakfast/brunch here, and have stopped for Happy Hour, but, I love the place. Breakfast/Brunch is a hardy affair with lots of flavor. The homemade hash is wonderful, the smoked salmon is as good as it gets, and appetizers are also very flavorful. The key is the sauces on the different dishes, lots of unique flavors. The... More

Fado's is one place I stop every time I visit Seattle. I am not sure if I have ever eaten here before, but they have probably the best Guiness pour in the city. It's a nice sized bar, and a good option to watch a soccer match. It's typically not too busy, except before a Seahawks game. If you can... More

Its a nice pub in the pioneer square area. I've been here a few times, and have been to the Chicago Fado about a gazillion times. This bar is huge with several rooms inside (after a few drinks it can feel like a maze inside). Good pints, good food, good service, and good place to hang out and avoid the... More

Had breakfast here one morning so I could watch Manchester United play Arsenal. Ok it was early but the waitress was surly. there were about 6 other people in the bar yet the breakfast was luke warm at best. The tea was tepid. I went back later for a beer (hey its a Irish pub 100 metres from my hotel!)... More

They combine Guinness with different beers, liquors and wow I'm not a big Guinness fan but there Black & Black is out of this world yummy!! They take Guinness and mix it with black currant syrup that turns the beer into a slightly sweet, creamy drink with hints of mocha.....and they have really great food! It's a nice bar with... More

Our hotel (the Roosevelt) gave us a free drink/appetizer coupon but as it was St Patty's Day and there was a $15 cover we debated going in. The doorman overheard us and said that while we couldn't use our coupon on this particular day, as Fado had been recommended by our hotel, he waived the cover charge. We spent several... More
