Fat Canary has possibly the finest cuisine in the Tidewater area. I live in Virginia Beach and it is absolutely worth the trip for a meal here! We are lucky to have such a fine restaurant available. I had salmon on a bed of lentils, red and yellow beets, goat cheese, with toasted pistachios and basil butter. The flavors were amazing. My husband ordered the duck which was served with an Asian twist. He said it was one of the best-prepared duck dishes he has ever had. Dessert was the Madelines on a pumpkin puree with toasted pumpkin seeds and ice cream....divine!n Go there, you won't be disappointed.
Our experience at Fat Canary was amazing! Our waiter was very attentive and the food was outstanding! My King Salmon dish was great! I would highly recommend this restaurant.
We had an outstanding experience for our anniversary dinner...highly recommend this restaurant!
Fat Canary met all of our expectations ! We look forward to going back for another dinner there.
This was our 3rd time visiting Fat Canary. Great ambiance and perfectly located within Williamsburg's historic sights. Staff is always pleasant and well versed in food recommendations and wine pairings.
This was out first visit to the Fat Canary and it did not disappoint. Both of us had the special entre of the night which was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive but also well paced. Nice draft IPA. Perhaps the only thing that could be improved would be to offer another option for dessert such as a fruit pie.
Delicious food. Our waiter, William, was terrific!
Great staff and the food was very good! Great wine selection!
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!
Fat Canary remains consistently excellent in it's service and it's food. The entrees are creative and always delicious. and the deserts are wonderful.
Fantastic setting, service, and cuisine. Perfect place for a date night. Will definitely go back.
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.
Excellent restaurant with great atmosphere. I would highly recommend for a special occasion or for just a night with a lovely meal
A superb dining experience. Marvelous food, inventive menu. Super service. Wonderful way to spend an evening. So accommodating.
Wonderful selections. Had the fish. Cooked beautifully
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!
Amazing food and outstanding service. Definitely recommend. We will be back.
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!
One of the best restaurants in Williamsburg, conveniently located on Merchant's Square. Been going there for years and the food and service never fail to be excellent. Unfortunately, like several other high-end eateries in town, it's very noisy.
Wine was excellent! Food was not exceptional. My husband had the rock fish and he said it was just okay. I had scallops that were delicious!!!!
My wife and I came to celebrate her birthday and the experience was outstanding. They made it a very special event. Highly recommended.
Had dinner at the bar and fantastic nite of dinner and drinks while experiencing great conversation w bartenders Craig & David. (Hope I got the names straight)
Will be back soon!
We can’t say enough good things about the fat canary. Our waitress shantel (spelling?) was phenomenal. She was personable and sweet and gave us exactly the amount of attention we appreciate…not hovering but we always had everything we needed immediately. The food was amazing and so well plated. The onion soup was a highlight, as was the chocolate mousse triangle. The wine list was great. The Malbec we had went perfectly with all four meals. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
My favorite restaurant in Williamsburg! Staff is friendly and professional. Atmosphere is warm and cozy. Wine list is thoughtful and designed to pair with the food. Love eating at the bar but the dining room is also lovely with very comfortable chairs and banquette seating. The food is superb, and Chef Tom Power is an artisan who highlights the best the season and local farmers and foragers have to offer.
The service here is always terrific and the food is to die for. We try to eat here every time we're in town.
Our third time there when visiting Williamsburg and the service and food is always consistently excellent.
