Overall very good, somewhat American Chinese. It is very different than the usually bad American Chinese food. I have been here at least 4 times on the way back from Reno. This one is super good. Better than most traditional Chinese restaurants in Bay Area. Curry short rib is very good. Combination platter is a must.
Excellent chinese food! The best I have had since moving to the Sacramento area! #1😊
The food and service at Fats is always excellent. The original of the restaurants has the better of the quality and taste of the food on the menu.
Great food and atmosphere. The menu is amazing. We brought our kids and they modified a few menu items to be more kid friendly, just ask.
Valentines dinner was excellent. Service was exceptional. Overall 5 star experience
My husband took me out to Valentine's Day lunch. They had a special couple's meal for listed for dinner, but our server said there was no problem ordering it for lunch. Everything was well-prepared and delicious. I have been for lunch a number of times as I work nearby but it was a first for my husband. He raved as well. When our server heard that my husband was not a fan of banana cream pie (their signature dessert, and what was included in the meal) she brought a second piece of pie, chocolate. Which was also fantastic. Our server was exceptional, perfect timing and professional. We will return for sure. Parking was street parking, we didn't use the adjacent garage. If there is an event at the Golden 1 Center the same day or evening, I would not go as parking would be hard and expensive if you were not planning on attending the event as part of your visit.
Been coming to Frank Fat's for decades. My father Robert Bates used to come and also take us kids on special occasions. Wonderful food.
My wife and I went to Frank Fat's to celebrate Valentines Day a day early. All of the dishes were excellent. It was a little bit of a drive to get there but we will be back.
Fantastic food, service and ambiance! Very good value.
Our service, Mike, was very attentive to all our needs.
Came here based upon the high ratings. Service was inattentive and the food was mediocre. For the cost of eating here i can get much better food for far less elsewhere.
4 of us for dinner. I requested a "quiet" table when I made open table reservation and they accommodated request. Ordered the combo plate appetizer which was very tasty and the calamari wasn't rubbery!. Each of us ordered an entree to share. The honey walnut prawns were some of the best we have had. Flank steak and lettuce cups also very tasty. Full bar was great. Service was excellent. Should have left room for dessert. Parking in the lot right next door makes this restaurant an very nice option for downtown Sac. We will be back and the menu is extensive. Suggest reservations.
First time at this Fat's location and it was an excellent time. Loved the wrap-around booths in the back of the restaurant, felt like our own private location. Great variety of food choices.
Great food and service
Close to the Arena
A bit noisy but still exceptional
Really delicious, well-prepared food. Excellent service in a classic, beautiful environment
Great place to meet friends, or have dinner without the roar of midtown bars and restaurants.
The food was amazing and we had great service. I will go back for sure.
Give the host a raise! Without him this would have been 2 stars. He was so kind about my guest being late. He also noticed when we’d been sitting with menus and no service and took our order. At the end of the night he also saved the day by getting the check when our waiter disappeared again. Not sure where our waiter was going but he wasn’t available when we needed him.
Great location for Golden One Center events and we enjoyed the food & ambience. Will return!
Our experience with our friends was excellent--we all agreed on that fact. We all four have been here numerous times and we never tire of the tasty food. We especially enjoy the booths in rear of the restaurant as it is much quieter and more private in that area. Paul, the server, and his assistants, were very accommodating.
We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation and we were seated right away. The restaurant was full and we were seated in the booth where it was cozy. The food servers were very attentive and friendly; considering it was almost the end of Friday and there was an important event in nearby arena. Food was great, they were warm and adequately cooked. Always loved the sampler appetizers, with its dips. We are frequent customers and never had a negative experience. To add, we paid the regular parking fee beside the restaurant, despite the higher parking event fee they charge. We always recommend this to friends and family.
Great food and service.
The food was wonderful and it was a very lovely evening.
Excellent food and service. Very generous portions. A bit noisy but that would be the only complaint.
Thank you Frank Fats for a great experience during Dine Downtown week. Rock-solid Chinese food in a club environment. Attentive service, reasonable pricing, and of course the famous banana cream pie to finish off the meal. It was over-warm at our table, which I attributed to our seating by the kitchen, but then realized it was the whole dining room.
Our dinner included Hunan Chicken, Honey Walnut Shrimp, fried rice, and a couple of appetizers but the standout we all agreed was the Mongolian Beef.
Great meal with great service. We had a leisurely dinner and didn’t, feel rushed at all.
Staff was very accommodating as we had a party of 6, but not all wanted to do the prix fixe menu. Luis made great suggestions, and thought of every last detail. Food was all great. Seating was a bit tight and hard to hear conversations.
Got drunk and ate too much good food
Having never been and hearing so much praise for Frank Fat’s, when we saw it on the Dine Downtown list, we had to go. Typically when restaurants participate in some sort of food week they pull out all the stops and have an amazing three course dinner... not here.
Our food was undercooked, room temperature, small portions, and boring.
We won’t be going back.
Frank Fat's is a great Sac restaurant. Good quality food. Charming restaurant. Consistently good service. Good vibe in the bar area, and not too loud in the dining area. Fun and unique to Sacramento.
