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.

Interior design well suited to Vietnamese restaurant scene. Filled with millennials. Energetic atmosphere but loud. Food quality and originality ok. Poor, rushed, uninterested server. For us not worth the trip downtown.

I like their restaurant concept and ambiance - a little of old Vietnam and a twist on their classic dishes. But I left hungry. Still, it's good for a try.

I’ve taken so many people to Lê Fat over the past two years and this last visit was awful all around. The menu has changed but the dishes I typically order were bad. Over cooked or dry and flavourless. I won’t go again.

The fried chicken is as good as everyone says. We were pleasantly surprised at how delicious the curry was as well. The spicy green beans were DELICIOUS and a must-order. The service was also spot on - gracious, attentive, helpful and quick. We look forward to going back.

We had the steamed dumplings, vietnamese chicken curry, pork belly bowl, ginger yuzu cocktail and the chocolate torte. The steamed dumplings and chicken curry were so flavorful, well-seasoned, delicious, and beautifully prepared and presented. While the presentation was beautiful, the pork belly bowl was underwhelming in terms of flavors and textures (dry meat, with dry rice, with dried garlic and other herbs on top, with some broccolini). The yuzu flavor was strong in the cocktail and I found it too sweet, but my dinner companion loved it. The chocolate torte was rich. It's simple, dense, fudgy, rich, chocolate shaped into a pie slice. Delicious, but a complete 180 from the inventive, flavorful, colorful, ambitious appetizers and entrees.

I've had many good experiences in the past and always enjoy the drunken noodles, however the service on Saturday night was lacking at best. My date and I enjoyed the food and ambiance, but this couldn't make up for the lack of service - once seated it went downhill...

This used to be a favorite of mine , however after returning after some time, we were disappointed. The appetizers and salads were very bland-not flavorful Vietnamese you’d expect. The entrees are the only items that lived up to their previous quality. May need to find another venue ?

Le Fat has been a favorite place for date nights in the past. However, this past Saturday night was disappointing. We were there with another couple. I recommended the Moscow Mule which has always been excellent. But, the drink was sooo spicy (“burning” spicy) that we sent both back. Food was good, but just not the excellence we have experienced in the past. I love garlic, but The Clay Pot Shrimp was overloaded with it! The soft-shell crab appetizer was dry and without flavor; and the Papaya Salad looked thrown together. My husband loved the “Unsung Hero” cocktail, but it was no longer available. The kitchen and bar seems to have gone downhill. 😥
P.S. I also noticed after our visit that Le Fat’s health score (online) is a B. My husband and I only trust A restaurants!!

We adore Le Fat, and return whenever our travels from Boston allow. However...they need to work on speeding up their service! My cocktail arrived with dinner and wine completed the final moments of dinner. This has happened the last three visits. Hope they read their reviews, as we don’t want to lose this fave rave for food and ambience!

Parking is right next to the building and FREE a bonus for midtown. We have been here several times. I recommend the clay pot chicken and drunk nooodle for dinner... they changed the shaking beef but it’s still decent. We have had several servers but Wendy is my favorite...she always asks how we have been and says it’s great to see you again. Drinks can take some time. Overall...we keep coming back because she makes us feel special

Hostess and server seemed unhappy to be at work and were phoning it in. No smiles, no apologies for a very late greeting, no offer of drinks before dinner. Very curt and not particularly welcoming at any point. Looks as if Le Fat will go the way of so many promising restaurants in Atlanta. Too bad, since the food is solid.

The food is AMAZING! For whatever reason though, drink service to our table is always slow. Slow to bring drinks, ask for refills and then to bring ordered refills. Odd as restaurants make good money on cocktails!!

First, we love this place . Eating out a lot we understand updating menus , fine tuning extras . But when one was as perfect as the Shaking Beef ..... lord do no screw with it. PLEASE go back to the original . This new thing looses some of the original flavor . This one is two sweet and just misses. I plan on ordering a new entra every time I would come there . BUT just could not get that original flavor out of my mind . So every time but One I have ordered Shaking Beef . PLEASE do not reinvent the summer rolls They are also perfect . Craig and I recommend your place all the time . We like the whole story you tell but now I will try other items because the shaking beef is not the perfect flavor .
Ps . Your staff is so great !

The server had an awful attitude the entire night. I’ve been here before so I hope she was having an off day but it was so much dismissal and attitude. This should not discourage you from coming here. It’s so good

I really wanted to try the soft shell crab and I did and it was good, needed salt or some type of bite. Crab and bacon were incinerated. We had a marginal waitress. She asked if I liked the food I said no, then she asked me if I wanted to box it to go. Uhm no! The crab with egg noddles isn't that great. There is some real and some not so real crab.i woukd go back for drinks and the sandwhich. And why is it so hard to ask people if it is there first time aar the restaurant????
