Fada Bistro Reviews List

Fada Bistro

Offering the freshest traditional Provencal dishes, FADA has been a Williamsburg staple since it opened in 2001. From the name of the restaurant (which loosely translates into "crazy" or as "someone with a fairy in their mind"), to the food, live music, and décor, FADA is completely infused with the owner’s native Marseilles roots.

A spacious but cozy main room with caramel tones and a Provencal garden provide the perfect setting for private events and a casual experience of Southern France in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

"Nice service, great wine list but I was disappointed with the food, the only I reccomend was the mussles. It was too noisy and too dark."

"Tried this place on a whim and was so happy we did! The food was great!
We started with the calamari with pastis and it was delicious - if you like the taste of anise, this is a must try! I had the traditional mussels and they were some of the best I've ever had. My boyfriend had the chicken and it was pretty good too. The only thing we were disappointed in was the creme brûlée - it had a ricotta consistency with powdered sugar on top, so it was NOT what we were expecting.
I will definitely go back, especially when I want some more mussels!"
