Exceptional food and service, though obtaining a reservation is difficult in these times due to limiting capacity. Well worth the trouble to plan ahead a few days when reservations are available.
One of the best meals we have had in a long time. Oysters were fantastic, drinks were amazing, and the pork chop and rockfish were divine. Our server was personable and attentive. We will definitely make the drive back just to eat here.
Last night we had an outstanding dinner at Fat Canary. Jessica was our server and she was the perfect blend of professionalism, friendliness, and knowledge. When people ask me what my favorite restaurant is, I always say Fat Canary, and I will continue to say that. The foie gras blows us away every time and our pork chop entree was perfection. In addition to our dinner, it was so cool to be able to go downstairs and shop for retail wine while we awaited our entree! We both work in fine dining, so it was lovely to sit back, be pampered and taken care of, and to watch the perfect orchestration of the front and back of house make it a memorable evening for all of their guests.
Simply the best! French wine was fantastic. Food was hot and juicy. Service impeccable.
Always a great meal with wonder service
This is our favorite restaurant on Hampton roads route. Food, service, ambiance and value all of it is just a pleasure. We never miss a chance to visit travelling this route to or from Virginia Beach and appreciate their resilience to the challenge of pandemic situation unlike many other restaurants they didn't quit and that says a lot! Thank you Fat Canary, we'll be coming back time and again.
Best and most consistent restaurant I have been to East of the Rockies...a great and friendly staff too!
Active kitchen, Samantha was an attentive server, food was very good (salmon a bit dry/overcooked).
The vegetables were excellent.
The food was innovative and well executed. Don't forget the great deserts!!
We have eaten at thousands of restaurants and THIS is our new favorite. Everything from mixed drinks, apps (must try foie gras!), filet, and hazelnut pie was perfect. Do not miss the chance to enjoy this place.
Vacationing from Massachusetts, checked it out based on reviews and it was well worth the visit, heritage pork chop was excellent.
Wonderful food and great service! Wasn't thrilled with our table as we had people traversing on both sides of us.
They were running a bit late with our table, but very apologetic. William is an excellent server and the food and menu are always consistent. We both enjoyed excellent dinners and a dessert.
Great good n service
Amazing food and service.
Riley did a nice job of taking care of us throughout our meal. Usually when we visit Williamsburg we visit this restaurant for an unrushed and relaxing dinner. This was the first time that it seemed noisy and frantic, but it is also the first time where we saw more families with young children dining there. It is a smaller more intimate restaurant so an unhappy and tired one year old interfered a little with our celebration dinner.
Reservations honored promptly. Host/hostess friendly, waitstaff knowledgeable, attentive, but not obnoxious. My salad, a greens/pear with soft cheese balls and balsamic vinaigrette, was absolutely delicious. Entrees—grilled rockfish with potatoes and mushrooms served with crisp green beans for my husband; grilled salmon with lentils and mixed veggies for me—were hot and tasty. Dining room is modern, clean, quiet, candlelit. Perfect location in Market Square right off the historic district. Make reservations early!
The food was fabulous! We really enjoyed the lightly fried oysters and a cheeseboard as an appetizer. The short ribs were perfection and the scallops were absolutely delicious. We love the cocktail menu and especially enjoyed the house bourbon old fashion!
Fantastic food....very high quality, and a nice variety to choose from. I highly recommend the tenderloin, it was cooked to perfection, I like mine medium rare. Waitress was very friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic!
Fat Canary was perfect! Food was amazing and service was top notch!
One of the best dinners we have had. Thought this might be a tourist trap dude which location, but it is not. It is fantastic fantastic
Food was great, service fine but not great. A little tight for Covid.
Fat Canary never disappoints! Consistently excellent quality coming from the kitchen, servers, and bartenders.
Great server, help with wine and dinner suggestions. Very personable.
Service was amazing!!!
FC is always a treat. The food is superb, with a great juxtaposition of flavors in each dish.
As usual a great dinner. Great service. Great experience!
This was our second time dining at the Fat Canary and it was just as good as the first time. Amazing food!!!
Everything was just wonderful!
The food was outstanding, as was the service. The star of the evening, however, was the "Expeditor", Jerome. He was magnificent; managing every customer's order, seeing that each dish was presented timely, with the right heat level, and of course beautifully presented. He was calm, but he was busy. Most impressive!!
I highly recommend the Fat Canary. Whenever my husband and I are in Williamsburg, we make sure to go to our favorite restaurant! The food and service is wonderful, and they have an extensive wine list. I also love the location just a block away from the historic area.
An outstanding anniversary experience. We both had hearts of romaine, and rockfish. Both were outstanding.
First time dining with a lifelong friend visiting from out of state! Exceptional service and food!
We come for special occasions and enjoy coming each time. We love getting the table by the post because it helps our conversation since my hearing is bad. Thanks for making that possible.
Table ready when we arrived. Service prompt and polite. Food was excellent and reflected the products from the region. Lovely place for a date or special occasion.
Excellent food, excellent service. We had a great evening.
Always a wonderful experience and fabulous staff!!!
They never miss! First class experience all the way.
Best foie Gras I ever had or will ever have. Great combination of wonderful food and great service. zi wish it was in Washingotn DC where I live instead of Williamsburg.
Best lamb shank and beef tenderloin ever. Excellent attentive service. Wonderful dessert.
