The food was mediocre at best and came out cold even though we had been seated and waiting for it for 40mins. The waitress was clearly new and had to be prompted on a few things. One of us ordered a filet and she wasn't asked how she would like it cooked and then was served without a steak knife. After waiting an additional 25mins for her to come back she cleared the plates and vanished for another lengthy amount of time and when she returned we were ready to leave but she showed us the entire dessert tray and didn't have our check with her. Since we had been sitting there with keys in hand and empty drinks, I let everyone else leave and paid the bill which was highly overpriced. Not really a pleasant dining experience.
The atmosphere is very nice and updated although it was very warm inside. We waited about 30 minutes for our cocktails when there were only 4 tables occupied in the dining room. The drinks didn't even come out together, it was one by one or two together if 2 people ordered the same drink. We waited over an hour for our dinners. Maybe they were super busy in the lounge and not in the dining room, im not sure. I would for sure go back for another chance. Maybe they were short staffed or having a bad night.
Unfortunately we did not have a chance to experience the food. We requested an outdoor table on a beautiful summer evening. What we didnt know is that the patio is located on a busy highway, unprotected from the noise and view of cars whizzing by. Because we had requested to sit outdoors there were no indoor tables left. So we left to find someplace more appealing to enjoy a meal. I imagine that the food would have been very good, but just be warned not to ask for outdoor seating unless you are sure you wouldnt mind the setting.
There were 5 of us. None of us were happy with our meals. They had no taste! I ordered salmon with no sauce due to a food allergy. They brought it with sauce...and undercooked. I didn’t get my redone dish till everyone was done eating,so I took it to go. At least they did comp it, but it was frustrating.
We love your restaurant! Every time we are in Laconia we visit you. We were there the evening you had problems with the AC and needed to close the following day. Our server Mike was wonderful. Even though there was apparent problems that night, he was very attentive to our table. Apologizing for any delays.
My brother and his wife Kathy were visiting from Florida, every time they visit, Faro is definitely top on the list to go have a fantastic dinner. They absolutely love Faro, Shayla was our waitress when we went to the deck for dinner. Great waitress. We love everyone there. Thanks for making my wife’s Birthday wonderful. Thanks Rich.
See you next year

Our server was very attentive but clearly somewhat new at the position. He was very courteous and checked on us regularly.
One of my biggest pet peeves with all dining establishments is the timing of the entrée delivery. I always ask the wait person to please hold the entrée until we are finished with our appetizer. This night the entrée was delivered before we had completed our salad which was disappointing. On the positive side, we were nearly complete with the appetizer, but having a brief rest period between servings with good wine and conversation is a plus factor for the diner. Other than that, we had a very good experience.
Home made pasta was fantastic, service was 5 star and can’t wait to return!
Food is always good, it's usually understaffed however. Took quite a while to get food. Server was also bartending. Still we had fun and enjoyed ourselves.
Fantastic night out. The food was delicious and the service was terrific! Loved the 1/2 price appetizers and delicious cocktails too! Would definitely visit again. Super food and fun night out!
Service was great and the interior is nice my martinis were yummy and food really good (pizza /pasta ) I will eat there again next time I am in Laconia! Thank you
Normally we have had good experiences here but don't ever go during bike week unless you want to be supremely disappointed. They scale their menu way down, the waitress that we had was very inexperienced, my wife had a side of pasta and they wouldn't even allow her to request it with just garlic and oil (pretty simple request) instead of sauce. My daughter's friend ordered a grilled chicken sandwich (no onion) which came out as a grilled chicken sandwich with nothing but a bun. We also needed to ask for things multiple times before it either came out or not at all.
Getting into the restaurant was also a challenge. I get it, it's bike week. I've been going to the lake for 20 years and have attended at least 7 bike week's before I turned my Harley in for a boat. You really shouldn't attempt driving a car anywhere near the Weir's during this time. My fault. Having said that, if you're going to accept reservations, maybe mention to your patrons, "By the way, because its bike week, parking will be "here" and you'll have to walk through a maze of vendor tents to get to our front door" etc., etc. It took us 20 minutes to find a way into the restaurant before we had the above mediocre experience.
Tighten it up folks, you're one of the better places to eat around the lake but it will be a while before I come back.
Good food. Good drink and appetizer special. Overall a good place to eat and good food at reasonable prices. I’d definitely dine here again.
We love this restaurant !! The food is always good!! We normally sit in the bar at the high top table but this time we sat in the restaurant ... I found it to be very dark we used our phones to read the menu ? The service was great and the meal and drinks were fabulous so no biggie!!
Food was better than expected. Service was good as well. Room was somewhat noisy but other than that better than expected for a tourist location.
We have eaten at Faro many times and generally had very positive experiences. During this visit, our server was new and mistakenly wrote one entree down incorrectly. Rather than send it back, I switched entrees with my dinner guest and we finished the meal. We also ordered an appetizer during happy hour but were charged full price. I didn't realize until I got home and checked the itemized receipt.
I will definitely come back to Faro because I believe this was an anomaly.
I've dined at your restaurant many times and never had a problem. This time, the pizza ovens were broken, the soda machine was broken, they didn't have any bread (who ever heard of that) and the salads came out at the end of the meal as an oversight. Very disappointing. I would still come back because the food is always good. Not sure what went wrong this time.
It's my favorite restuarant in Laconia. I've not had a bad meal in the 4or 5 times I've been.
We had reservations for 6:00 pm. There was a large party, so we were not able to be seated since all of their servers were busy with this very large party. We were asked if we would like to sit at the bar to wait. We ordered a nicely made drink and a delicious appetizer. About a half hour later, we were told the large party had just gotten their food, and asked if we would like to eat at the bar instead of waiting for our table. I do not like eating at a bar, so we decided to wait. We finished our appetizer and drink and had to wait about another ten minutes, and then were shown to our table. The server was attentive and we both ordered the special, which was fabulous! This restaurant would have gotten the highest rating were it not for the inconvenience of waiting for our reservation. We were not given any compensation despite having to wait nearly an hour to be seated. A few more minutes at the bar and we would have gone elsewhere and missed a delicious dinner.
We made a reservation for a large group (14 people) at this restaurant. They totally took care of us! We had our own area and 2 waitresses taking care of our table. The food was delicious & service was fast & accurate. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
We had an odd experience here. Our hostess made us wait for over a minute to seat us after being on her computer.
Our waitress asked us twice if we wanted bread, had to be asked for water on several occasions and was just average. The food we ordered was delicious -- we had the house shrimp special appetizer and chicken piccata over linguine. Atmosphere was very nice; portions were adequate, yet prices
were high for the food on the plate. I am not sure I would run back here.
We went on Saturday 2/16/19 Not sure if short handed but place was packed and only one bartender took 40 min for a beer from tap and glass of wine second round of drinks took 30 min otherwise great food. Waitress apologetic for bar service being so slow
Friendly service, nice four course meal for Valentine’s Day, we showed up 20 minutes early and they were still able to seat us upon arrival, was a little disappointed they ran out of cheesecake
Good food, great service.
Great food and service. Handled my Gluten Free food exceptionally!
Service was excellent, food was terrific. The homemade pasta is superb
Restaurant and staff were great but our only criticism is, the restaurant was cold. We all had to keep our coats on.
Great atmosphere for a Christmas weekend getaway!🎄
Jake, our server, was excellent. Food was outstanding and the cost of the food wasn’t bad. I will definitely eat there again.
I have been to this restaurant before and I’ve had good service and a wonderful meal. We went Saturday night on Columbus Day weekend and I believe they were understaffed. It took 50 minutes to get our salad. Our waitress didn’t think to check in with us and let us know that the kitchen was backed up despite walking past us numerous times. We had to track her down and inquire.. Our meal came 20 minutes after that and my chicken was not edible as it was overcooked . We did complain about my meal and the manager comped it . Since I’ve had a good meal there before I might try them again, but only in the middle of the summer when I know they are fully staffed.
My husband and I went here for a "date night" on a Friday, but ended up sitting with friends ~ another couple. We all had lots of fun. The food was very good. I'd say the food was good, but not a great value. I had some seasonal ravioli, as featured on the nightly special menu. The raviolis were delicious, but there were just a few of them on the plate. The total bill was a bit pricier than some other local restaurants, that serve food just as good. But the view/deck is spectacular. We could see Lake Winnipesaukee, from across Route 3. I had one of the BEST drinks I've ever had. A Coconut Cream Martini! Delicious ~ almost like dessert in a glass. This was the first time that any of the four of us had eaten at this restaurant, since it was bought and renovated by the new owners. We all thought it was a very rustic but elegant decor, pleasant overall atmosphere, with very prompt, professional service, and nice wait-staff. We enjoyed ourselves.
The ravioli was so fresh. Great sauces. Very nice atmosphere...lounge was awesome. Great look but not too fancy. Looks better inside than the outside which is deceiving like a seafood restaurant with a lighthouse. Very surprised how nice it was inside. Definitely recommend it. Would be super busy in summer since it’s right on the Weirs beach area. Was busy end of sept., would not attempt it during motorcycle week. Delicious place.
Wonderful waitress, lovely decor, great piccata and other Italian dishes.
Server mollie was great! Kitchen and bar were on the slow end.
sorry but the food was poor! i had ravioli and it was not cook and the filling was not beef. i never send food back but i could not eat it., my husband is a chef and i now good food and that was not. my son had veal with pasta , veal was card board , the cheese was burnt on, not melted, the sauce tasted like beefaroni from a can. you had good bread!
It was a nice place to eat. Good food and service.
Waiter was great. Very attentive. Love coming here.
Food was good, I just thought it was a little expensive.
We were not familiar with this area and just happen to book a reservation at the Faro Italian Grill on Open Table. We were not disappointed. The service was great our server had good recommendations for both food and wine options. There was at least 5 different specials offered in addition to a good size menu. I got the salmon which I loved. My friends got the specials and were very pleased with their meals as well. The portions were generous. The only negative is that we were seated by the door to the outside seating and it was distracting.
A nice place in between upscale and casual. A good fit for the environment. Food was high average. We had more expensive entrees, but other folks seemed to be enjoying the comfort food, pizza, etc.
