Service was great, beautiful terrasse. The food was good too, but a bit pricey. It's okay to pay a bit more for the experience.

We ended having to wait 30 minutes to be seated at our table because the hostess was very confused. The first waitress basically abandoned us but the next waitress was honestly wonderful and very attentive. The food was delicious and the portions were perfect. I would go back.

Food wasn’t really good, but we understand that all the restaurant are slowing readapting after covid.
But the service was great, Aymen did a fantastic job.
They really need to fire their rude and arrogant hostess.

Plates and seating were dusty and dirty on arrival
Then there was a garbage smell
Menu was skimpy and food mediocre at best
Incredibly disappointed and a huge difference from take away menu experienced during the pandemic
Won’t be rushing back

I had the BEST experience ever and it’s my second time only going there but was never disappointed . From the beautiful cocktails , to the Amazing food ... and also they have a DJ on sundays so you eat and dance at the same time , it’s such a vibe . I ended up taking some more food to go : that’s how good it was . Make sur to take a reservation cause it’s really popular and busy . Definitely recommend . I already make my next reservation for next week !!!!!

EXCELLENT service but the fried chicken was over-battered. Papaya salad was ok. Tacos were DELICIOUS.

Erin our server was helpful with food and beverage recommendations. She was incredibly attentive. She is s keeper!

Would absolutely go back for the service and the tacos alone. Willing to try other dishes as this was my first time.

During covid times one can be weary as to where to eat or venture out as a whole. I have been twice during the pandemic and they are very respectful to the guidelines. Your temperature is checked upon arrival, the entrance way is verified to be lear upon entry. As soon as someone moves without a mask you are intervened to remind you.

I requested at my birthday dinner to double up the tables and they graciously did so. With us being outside, they even more so checked up on us to make sure we were warm and brought extra heaters as guests outdoors left.

The maitre d went above and beyond with comfort and recommendations. As an event planner, I would highly recommend this space as a safe covid friendly hip venue with a quality of food and service that surpasses many.

Thank you for making my covid birthday that more special and safe!

The decoration was realy well done with a 90's retro vibe that we loved. The music was old school too, but the DJ's only-rap catalog was a downside. Our host service, Rose, was impeccable. The food was good, but not amazing. The big con was the price: 130$ for an insanly poor choice of cheap beers (only 1 choice of craft beer if I remember well), a 7$ bottle of Eska bubble water and aroung 90$ of ok food. I would recommend anytime for the ambiance/vibe and service, but the food/price ratio is a no-go.

Fish tacos, seafood boil & the spicy dragon red snapper 🔥🔥The Farsides is a seafood lovers dream. Finish your meal with ice cold drunken Thai tea and a pineapple Dole Whip and you’re ordering like a pro.

Food was mediocre at best.
Noise was too high for a restaurant.
For a place that advertises itself to be modern and fancy, it was more like trashy and low-class. A lot of bachelor/bachelorette parties, people did not dressed well, a lot of men hanging around the door like it is some sort of club, felt very predatory and creepy. A lot of them were shouting like it was a low class bar. The servers were abrasive with their handling of the plates. People go there with their Aldo or H&M bags and pose in the bathrooms with the designer logos wallpapers and pretend to be cool and stylish, it's pathetic really.

If you are planning on booking the table for a later reservation and not leaving the previous reservation being able to stay and enjoy the night you should mention it in the reservation schedule. We booked a table of 4 @ 7h30pm expecting to spend the entire night there, but we have been told that we had to leave @10h30pm because there was another reservation and they had no place elsewhere.
Also, price vs good quality isn’t really there.

A mixture of exotic Thai and Hawaiian cuisine. Brick and graffiti laced walls with a touch of overgrown jungle. Open terrace at the end of the restaurant (large umbrellas for when it rains). Lively music, great atmosphere, fabulous service. The food is unique and delicious. Huge lobsters, burgers and fries, half a pineapple stuffed with rice and spicy meat, vegetarian/vegan also. We try a new cocktail every time we go. It's a wonderful place to bring friends/family.

Very good food and drinks - the drunken lobster pad Thai was definitely a favorite and so was the dim sum. Great place to go and try a few things with friends!

For the decor, the courtesy of the staff and the ambiance, I would recommend the Farsides. However, the main meals take a significant amount of time to arrive. Therefore, it affects the overall experience of the customers.
