Our past experiences have been great, but the service was slow this time around. The servers acknowledged this and tried their best. The food was delicious, as always. It’s a Sacramento institution and I wish people didn’t dress like they were going to Applebee’s.
Fabulous food, every dish ! Hope to dine there again.
Food was wonderful and perfect portions. Banana Creme pie is worth the visit!
Late Valentine’s dinner
This place had been hyped up to me by friends who had eaten here. However, they didn't hype it enough - was one of the best dining experiences I've had in my life.
A friend recommended Frank Fats to us. I did not disappoint. The food was delicious. Best orange chicken I’ve ever had. Will definitely recommend to others!
Took a long time to get our cocktails ,second cocktail was wrong had to send it back, the red Zinfandel house wine Was really bad and their famous banana cream pie was very Off . We have been going here for
40 years and this hopefully was just an Oops.The main meal was excellent as usual .
Food was excellent except shrimp fried rice was soggy. Parking garage next door was only open til 10pm. We had a 9:30 reservation (the only time available) so the nice man stayed open til 10:30 so we were rushed.
We always love Frank Fat’s! It’s like being with family. The food, the service, everything is perfect. Even on Valentine’s Day it was fabulous.
As always this place service delicious food with great service and very tasty drinks. whether it's you and the wife or family and friends, always a very comfortable place to celebrate. The place just needs a bit of a touch up on some of the booths and walls need some fresh paint. I think it's important to keep this place looking 1st class just like when it first opened up to the public. Thank you for everything and I will definitely keep coming back.
Loved the experience, food was delicious and the banana cream pie was amazing!!
Frank Fat’s is one of our favorite restaurants in midtown. We enjoyed every second of our dinner on Valentine’s Day. The service was outstanding as always. The food was very god every time we come there. We will denfintely come back again!
Very good all-around experience. Continues to be one of our favorite places because of the great old-fashioned service coupled with an up-to-date ambiance and great food. You can't miss out on the banana cream pie either!
Great food great service!
Wonderful restaurant, parking is $7 to the left of frank's front door. Dress nicely, make it a continued cool hangout for the rest of us. Pie crust is awesome!
This is old school Chinese cuisine well executed. Items marked as spicy really aren't, but hey offer housemade hot sauce and VERY hot mustard. Fried dumplings very good, fried chicken good but brandy marinade doesn't significantly change the flavor, Singapore noodles OK but a bit underseasoned.
Food was pretty good. Call Amari came to the table only warm. Chow fun was excellent.
Our waitress was terrific! The food is not great but pretty good. The setting is beautiful and well worth a visit.
Delicious food and excellent service. Chinese food often gives me a migraine because of all the natural MSG in soy and added MSG -- I never get a headache after eating at Frank Fat's.
Delicious food and great service. A great place to go before a concert at Golden 1. Just make sure to have a reservation.
We went to check out Frank Fats as a potential venue for a large private party. The restaurant was easy to book, and super accommodating with we got stuck in traffic for the kings game nearby. Our waiter was fantastic: friendly, eager to find out what we wanted, and very professional. Wish I could remember her name! We ordered the combo appetizer, which was delicious and perfect for four, as there was one appetizer of each kind per person. Next we ordered the half Peking duck, which was disappointingly small but incredibly delicious. It seems more like a quarter of a Parkin duck to us. 😥(hence the loss of a star for value). We also ordered fried rice and the green beans, which were amazing!! And finally we ordered two pie slices for the four of us to share. The slices were yummy and generous and were gone in no time! All in all, it was a wonderful evening. Oh, the only annoying thing is that one of the waitstaff kept trying to take our serving plates too early, when there was obviously still food on them (we kept stopping her because there was no way we were going to waste even two bites of that Peking duck!)
Only problem was parking, food was excellent
Frank Fat's was delicious. We celebrated my husband's birthday dinner there and enjoyed every moment. The appetizer platter was incredible, as was everything else. We also had the best service. I highly recommend Frank Fat's and the banana cream pie.
A pleasure to dine here although I've had better Chinese in SF. Ribs:dry and not so good; calamari batter way too thick and heavy handed. Soup really good. Duck noodles could benefit from more duck. That being said, the overall atmosphere of the place, the reasonable prices and the acceptable food make it worthwhile to return.
The special year of the pig dinner was a bit bland and the salmon dish for 3 seemed only a sampler in size. I believe we would have done better off the regular menu.
Fantastic dinner prior to the Kings game at this istorical Sacramento establishment. Food , service and atmosphere were outstanding. I’ve been going here since mid 80’s and met the honorable Frank himself on a couple occasions. Great job again Frank Fats !!
We go there often, and the food is alway good. And the parking is very convenient.
Excellent, only complaint would be that we had reservations at 5:00, they opened at 5:00 and we were seated in the very back table by the kitchen.
We had a great dinner with a delicious appetizer platter and excellent main courses.
Happy Hour is FABULOUS!!! The appetizers are so good and they’re only $7.25 apiece. The best deal is the giant mai tai drink. Yum!
We moved to San Diego. Nothing like Frank Fats in San Diego. When we come to Sacramento, we always go to Frank Fats for dinner.
Came in after the lunch rush and felt that since the $$ making time had past, we were not taken care of. Long wait for service.
I have been there during lunch time and service was good.
Great food, great service, great banana creme pie!!1 Oh, and great mai tais too.
Something for everyone. Fantastic service and delicious food. Make sure to save room for banana cream pie
Never disappointed!! I will always give Frank Fats a five star rating in all categories. It was a special night and Luis our waiter made it even more so with his attention and demeanor. Thank you for an excellent evening.
Dine Downtown event
We have come here for many years. Never have had a bad experience. The best Chinese food in Sacramento. The honey walnut prawns, Frank's New York steak and banana cream pie are must-order dishes.
As always our food was wonderful and delivered on time and hot!
Amazing food and staff!
