Vietnamese
Welcome to Le Fat and Guy Wong's modern interpretation of classic Vietnamese dishes! The restaurant design pulls from Vietnam's French-colonial influences in an attempt to recapture the beauty, romance and joie de vivre of French colonial Southeast Asia from the 1920s.

Our menu features shaking beef, clay pots, com (rice), bun (vermicelli), rotisserie chicken, phở (noodle soup), stir-fry dishes that combine the savory flavors of Northern Vietnam with a dash of French Cuisine. We showcase French pastries, Housemade Ice Creams and sweets at our Dessert Counter, and offer Vietnamese coffee service – served tableside. We proudly feature Dancing Goats Organic French roast coffee & Fair Trade Rishi Hot Teas.

Food and service were amazing. And for those who are always in pursuit of an “instagrammable moment,” the restaurant design has the aesthetic for that, too.

Appetizers arrived before wine. Dishes we not well-paced. The Bahn mi toast was very underwhelming, basically sauteed button mushrooms on bread, no pickled vegetables or cilantro. We all enjoyed the papaya salad, chicken curry, and crab noodle.

didn’t get sat until 30 minutes after our reservation. it took the bartender 15 minutes to acknowledge us. he was busy but after 15 minutes of no service the first words out of his mouth were “they were here first”. while it’s understandable to serve guests based off when they arrive it’s not how you want to be greeted after you’ve been waiting 25 minutes after your reservation. once we were seated we thought our experience would be better but our server was very condescending and rude. we ordered dumplings and were told we must be patient because they take a while to steam. when i asked the server what some of his favorite dishes were he said it depended on what i like, not what he likes. after watching my beer sit at the bar for 10 minutes he walked by and asked if i needed something at which point he remembered my beer and blamed the bartender. when he finally picked it up and brought it to me i kindly pointed out that it wasn’t the bartender. he then got very upset and asked if i’d like to speak with the manager or get a new server. i said no that was ok but he still said he would get a new server. i have never been so disrespected by multiple employees dining out ever. the food was pretty good but not worth putting up with the service

Le Fat was a great mid week choice for a nice dinner out with my husband. We loved the vibe and the service was outstanding. Our favorite dish was the curry. Overall we would definitely come back.

Awesome find! Elegantly decorated storefront in a new building with ample comp parking evokes colonial Viet Nam. Every dish on the carefully curated menu is a winner! Subtleties of flavors abound with bold tastes. Loved the Cafe du Monde cafe filtré!

Acknowledging we had a larger group, but we did not have a good experience. Appetizers were slow, some forgotten. The entire group was served entrees except for one person who did not receive their food until the rest of the group was finished. The night was extended when it took approximately 30 minutes to figure out the checks, after 3 or 4 revisions. Hopeful that this was just an off night for the team at Le Fat, but it will be a while before we try again.

I liked Le Fat, that food tasted good and was prepared rather quickly. Our server was nice even though she seemed a little pre-occupied, being a little short with us at times. The ambiance was lovely, I would go back to try other dishes that seemed good to me as well. Pretty good place.

Food standards at LeFat have dropped since it first started, which is unfortunate as I used to like the place. But the more disturbing part was the service - the waiter was awkward and at times rude. Never going back.

Waiter was too causal for a nice restaurant. For a Saturday night in Atlanta it was not busy. The atmosphere was not right. The restaurant did not have music playing for the longest time and it was so quiet.

Second time and it was a bit of a disappointment. Bartender didn't seem to know his way around. Food was solid, but not great as my first meal was. Service was a bit slow ... not the fabulous time I was expecting after the awesome first visit I had.

I've dined at Le Fat twice and the food is consistently delicious. Try the wonton dumplings and summer rolls as an appetizer. They are so fresh and delicious. The Bun Chilled Vermicelli Bowl is so fresh and flavorful. Try it with the wonton dumpling sauce. The service is spectacular. I'm looking forward to my next visit to Le Fat to try the chicken clay pot.

I would typically take any opportunity to order Pho, but my date and I challenged ourselves to not eat in our comfort zone... this was the best decision! I had the spring rolls, Bao and Lemongrass Shrimp. EVERYTHING was amazing. It was a Sunday night so it was not crowded, possibly impacting how great my service was, but it was great nonetheless.

Arrived on time and were seated quickly. Went to order my favorite crispy spring rolls and was informed that they were out. The server proceeded to take our order without writing anything down. He then stood at the terminal (which was right next to our table) and asked each of us again what we wanted. I don’t understand why he didn’t just write it down to begin with. When our food came out, it was wrong. They took two of the four dishes away to correct them and by the time we got them back, the other two people had finished eating.

It was my best friends birthday and it was incredibly embarrassing that this meal was such a fail. The server could not have cared any less about the problems with our meal. Never apologized, never offered to bring us something while we waited on our food....nothing. It was just a horrendous experience. Most definitely will not be returning.

The food was very tasty, service was great. The steamed dumpling were delicious, as well as the Drunken Beef dish. We were there for a birthday celebration and the wait staff could not have been nicer. Highly recommended.

My husband and I found Le Fat by using the Atlanta Dining Passbook. It's one of our favorite new places!
The clay pot chicken is incredible!! We've also had the Lemongrass shrimp. It's also very good! We tried the lemongrass mussels this time. We were pretty disappointed. It didn't have near the flavor of the other dishes. It was a generous portion of mussels, but only came with 3 small pieces of bread. When we asked for more, we were told it would be a $3 up charge. We thought that was excessive for bread. The service was good enough, not great. We wish they would serve ice with the water or at least really cold water, but it was poured only slightly chilled and warmed quickly. We look forward to returning again soon to try other options.

Great place to start the night out with friends. The food was delicious and our server was terrific. We were probs my s bit challenging with our combo of ladies who don’t eat meat, pork, shrimp, gluten or dairy and the kitchen accommodated all of our requests with grace and patience. Run...don’t walk to get here. Just delisth!
