We've been to Frank Fats several times and have always been happy, but weren't very impressed during this visit. The service was very slow and the food didn't seem to be as tasty as in the past, especially for the price. I'm not sure if the timing and quality were an issue because of the dine downtown promotion, but it seemed to be an off night to us. Given our past experiences, we'll certainly be back and would still consider recommending a visit to friends looking for an upscale Chinese food restaurant.

Frank fats is always good. My only slight gripe is the Manhattans have the cheap cherries and smaller glass.

As always, the food was outstanding and the service very good. Even though we were in the back room with the booths, we happened to be across the room from a very loud 6 member group that detracted a bit.

We went to Frank fat’s during Dine Sacramento restaurant week! The six course meal for $40 per person was perfect! We each got a potsticker & an egg roll to start. The entrees served family style were honey walnut shrimp, pepper steak and crispy chicken for dessert we had homemade banana cream pie, that was the best banana cream pie I’ve ever had! We will definitely go back!

The food and service was great. Our server had a great personality and communicated with us every step of the way. The family style food was very large portions. We had leftovers to take home. The banana cream pie does not disappoint. Looking forward to going back and checking out their happy hour.

The food was great as always, but this was the first time we felt ignored by our server. After bringing the food, he never stopped by again to see if we wanted anything else, or another cocktail. Then when we were done and ready to have left-overs boxed up and order dessert, we had to sit there several minutes before he came over to our table. I don't know if they were short-staffed that night, because that has never happened before and we've been there multiple times.

We had combo appetizer (great), Honey Shrimp (very good), Peking Duck (wonderful), Immigrant Beef (good - could have been more rare), Brandy Fried Chicken (not as flavorful as expected) and Garlic Green Bean vegetable (very good). Overall food rating very good. Service was very helpful to choose the dishes. Some noise - but it was Monday night so booths in back were closed - those are very private (we were seated there in a previous visit). Very friendly place.

The best Chinese restaurant outside of San Francisco. I love it; always my go-to for birthdays, and we even did Christmas Eve there this year. Can not recommend Frank Fat's enough!

Must’ve been an off night. Not busy but everything took too long. Received our dried out appetizers after newly seated guests received their entrees. Waited over an hour for our entrees before finally leaving. I usually don’t complain or leave bad reviews, and Fat’s is typically great. Unfortunately not tonight.
