Great service and food
Great place to eat in Williamsburg VA. Loved the fried Oysters. The special when we dined was Halibut, which was done to perfection. Can't wait to return ! Impeccable service by Kieth our waiter.
Service as always is outstanding. They truly appreciate their customers and treat you in a way that makes you want to come back.
From all our travels, Fat Canary remains at the top of our list. From the drinks, appetizers, through dessert, all courses are exceptional. Always consistent and never disappointed.
One of the best meals we had on our trip from the moment we walked in to a coffee at the end of the meal.
Fat Canary is our go-to restaurant for any special occasion. We have been going to FC for over 5 years and we have never been disappointed. The service, the food, and the drinks are always top-notch. We look forward to out next celebration and visit to Williamsburg's amazing establishment.
Amazing tasting menu! This was our second time requesting the tasting menu, and it was even better than the first! It was great to watch the kitchen work ... very impressive. The oyster stew was the best I've ever had and the rabbit was especially delicious!
Was absolutely perfect. One of the best and most memorable and enjoyable evenings spent here. We had Neil as our server and he was absolutely above and beyond consistently. Steaks and ribs were delicious.
Everything was awesome. Especially our waitress Katie.
Great food and great service. The tuna tempura appetizer was the best we have ever had. Pricey, but you get what you pay for, and what we got was exceptional.
Always fantastic, this time it was over the top excellent!
Great service, very good food.
We went here for our anniversary and it was a great choice. The food was some of the most delicious I’ve ever had and the service was outstanding!
This place was incredible! The food was better than described, our server was attentive and patient. I cannot recommend this place enough.
Grouper Fish special was fabulous! Macadamia Nut Pie was to special too.
Always a wonderful time. I made a reservation for my wife, son and myself as a late Christmas gift. The service and food was great! I’m never disappointed. Thanks
As usual, the best place in Williamsburg. As usual, the best place in Williamsburg.
Food was excellent. Service was also excellent.
Best dinner ever. From the on time reservation, to our server Neill, to fabulous food and beautiful ambiance. WOW!
We have been going to Fat Canary two to three times a year for four or five years. It is our favorite restaurant in all of Virginia, and maybe the eastern seaboard. Consistently awesome, and the chef’s specials are always a good call. This time the special was grouper. It was the best I’ve ever had, it was delightful. I recommend the Fat Canary to everyone going to Williamsburg. Can’t wait for our next trip!
Outstanding food and service.
Fantastic as usual! The Fat Canary is the very best dining experience in Williamsburg.
We love this place. While we live in North Carolina, we find ourselves celebrating our wedding anniversary at Fat Canary often. It is thoroughly top notch. Rabbit fricassee was savory perfection. Only the Carolina gold rice slipped a bit as a bed for wonderful sauteed quail.
everything was great except it was loud -- a lot of people were talking!!! guess they were having a good time too.
Great food, great place.
The Fat Canary is always an indulgent treat!
Great with food allergies/celiac issues. Went twice in two days.
My friends and I had a wonderful dinner as part of our Christmas celebration. Dinner was beautifully plated and the food was creative and delicious.
Fabulous! Great food with excellent service and generous drinks. Enjoyed everything - foie gras (duck liver), oysters, fresh mozzarella, short ribs, and scallops. For those that know Volt, this is like Volt used to be in its early years. Very detailed preparation with some unique flair. Bar was also warm and provided good conversation - with very generous pours. We'll be back anytime we get to W'burg.
The food in this restaurant is outstanding and all the wait staff and employees are kind, helpful and friendly. We have never been disappointed. The tables are close together but it does not seem to be a problem. We visit for special occasions and any other time we can.
Yes, these folks know what they are doing. Excellent from bringing to end.
Outstanding service fantastic food. Absolutely love this place.
Always a great dinner and service when we go to this restaurant
From start to finish the meal was outstanding. Our server was very attentive and made great suggestions for a good wine for our entrée. Perfect evening!
I always make it a point to stop at the Fat Canary for a wonderful culinary experience. The menu is well thought out, the flavor combinations really delight the palette and they have a very complimentary wine list. The fact that the restaurant shares a space with a wine shop doesn't hurt either. I am biased to seafood and one of the best items on the menu is their scallop dish and certainly the chocolate mouse dessert. I could literally eat two of those. The prices are on the expensive side, but it is worth it for that special occasion or an important business meal. I can't wait to go back.
We are out of towners that visit Williamsburg more frequently now. Fat Canary is certainly a "go to" restaurant. The kitchen continues to turn out great dishes in all of experiences there. The wait staff is really well trained and they are happy to be there. Whether you reserve online or call for reservations, you will get a call back, as a courtesy, especially if you have noted a special occasion or request. They do their best to accommodate.
Our salad (Manikintowne Greens), my appetizer (Tuna), and our entrees (Salmon and a special of the night, Grouper) were perfectly prepared. They allowed us to split the salad and it came out in two dishes. They were most generous servings for each of us. The Fat Canary is highly recommended.
Don't waste your money on the restaurants in the Historic District. Spend a little more at Fat Canary and you will be well rewarded! Excellent food and service.
Don’t let the name fool you. Fat Canary is a fine dining is restaurant. We dined there both Friday and Sunday on the weekend of the Grand Illumination. Both nights the food and service were outstanding. Our server on Friday night was Erika and on Sunday, Jermey. Both were attentive and personable. I don’t know the hostess name but she was the best I ever saw. If you have ever been to the Grand illumination, you know what I mean. She kept everything running like a clock. If you are ever in Williamsburg, plan on going to the Fat Canary. You won’t be disappointed.
Excellent food and service. It is a very popular restaurant with limited space for seating so the tables are very close together and the noise level is quite high when full which is almost always. Again food and service are outstanding so we will return and do recommend the Fat Canary.
