The service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable in the vegan options. She was helpful in ordering, as we are just starting this vegan journey. The food was tremendous. Very flavorful with just the right spices. We were on vacation, and was looking for a classy restaurant that was affordable. The Fat Canary was one on the best dining experiences we have ever had. THANK YOU

From start to finish and it was an absolute pleasure. Phenomenal wine list, outstanding food and we loved the ambiance. When I booked through open table I said it was my mother’s birthday. When we arrived (early) were graciously seated. The server gave my mother a custom menu with her name on it and hand written notes from the staff wishing her a happy birthday. I highly recommend their oyster and ahi appetizer. The scallop entree was huge and pared very well with their bottle of Jordan cab. This had been my third time to the restaurant and each time is better than the last. I love going to a restaurant that puts time and effort into their food. Even on a Tuesday it was a packed out. Thank you Fat Canary for an excellent job well done. I will be back.

We received excellent attention from our waiter the entire evening. The food and wine provided an enjoyable treat for our early Valentine's dinner. We left with a smile on our face!

Our first stop on our annual trek to Florida from PA and our most anticipated. We absolutely love this place, not only for the food but the ambiance as well.

Have been here many times and it continues to excel with GREAT food! Was celebrating Birthday and as usual they give that person a signed personalized menu to take home. We had the tuna tempura followed by salad then an awesome sea scallops dish! Dessert was the crepes that were light with wonderful side compliments. Highly recommend for a special occasion as you will feel special!

Wow! Absolutely exceeded our expectations in every possibly way. From reservations on the phone with Lynn (who was delightful!) to the amazing staff that put together a special customized menu for us (we were in the area adopting a puppy of all things!) everything was amazing. Awesome atmosphere, fantastic service and delicious food. Just an exceptionally great place!! We’ll be back for sure!
