The food was not well prepared or tasty. It could be that what I ordered was horrible, but never have I brought guests to a restaurant and had everyone in the party be disappointed with the food.
I love this place

Fada is a lot of fun. Great food at a very reasonable price, friendly service and great ambience. I have brought many friends here and they have all left saying they were looking forward to coming back. Great wine list too. Just a good time

Nice bistro with a cute terrace in the back. Friendly staff and good simple food (too bad they don't serve freshly squeezed orange juice though). If you're looking for some French bistro dishes not overpriced in a cool atmosphere, you should check out this place. Good value for money.
affordable rich cuisine

fada is very balthazar-esque, except less hectic, and more neighbourhood-y, in a good way. food is quite good, perhaps a little too rich (i would say that the bacon-asparagus crepe appetizer ordered by my friend, though delicious, would be intimidating to finish by oneself, which my friend somehow managed). the texture of the dishes was superb, excellently cooked baked potato with my excellently rare hangar steak (with a slightly charred outside, mmm), and excellently cooked potatoes served with a moist duck confit. service is impeccable, prompt, (thankfully inauthentic). not the balthazar crowd, saw families, hipsters, high-rollers all enjoying themselves. affordable wine/beer, though we only ordered beer. have kronenbourg 1664. strangely, they played sufjan stevens and the shins before moving on to downtempo electronic stuff.
Great bistro brings authentic french cuisine to Williamsburg
By samhagerbaumer on 5/25/2004
My friends and family were happily surprised when the little corner bistro with reasonable prices turned out to be a delectable evening of fine french cuisine. Great, authentic french dishes; prices so low they would shock any Frenchman; decor that transports diners to a quiet corner bistro in the Rive Gauche; and a relaxing atmosphere that invites guests to stay and enjoy for hours -- all this made for a wonderful meal. The only flaw is that the sweet waitresses tended to be a bit flighty, but only in style that is typical of french bistros. Great place for a date or quiet evening, or fun sunny spot for lunch. Try the mussels - the flavor changes daily - and the escargot.
