    I love Fat Baby everytime I come the food never disappoints, which is why I go back so often. Everything was perfect as usual and we went on a Saturday evening so you couldn’t hear across the table because the bar is usually packed by then. My only recommendation would be to not go on a first date there because the noise level but it’s only like that on Friday and Saturday nights!

    The special maki with the swordfish and the citrus and the potato purée was fantastic last night! Inventive and delicious 😍. Also the server was lovely. Will definitely be back! Would be nice if you guys could offer hot sake and hot tea as well.

    Real talk, Fat Baby has roughly $7,280 of our families money. We get it almost every week at an avg order of $70. Tonight we spent $155. Best meal ever. 52 weeks a yr x 2 yrs x $70 avg order and it’s the best $7k we’ve spent for eating out. Perfect sushi, perfect service and phenomenal drinks.

    This place is an odd mix. It is a bar with a DJ that is very loud and there were lots of guys sitting at the bar watching TV. The place was not crowded at all, maybe 15% full, but we had to wait forever for our meals.  Overall it was just weird to have a sushi restaurant that was so loud and so in attentive. And the food was totally mediocre.

    Great sushi and atmosphere. Ryan was our waiter and he was great. It turned into a club vibe with karaoke (I had no idea when I made the reservation) and we enjoyed ourselves.

    We ended up sitting at the bar and the two bartenders took twenty minutes to acknowledge us (the bar was pretty empty). After we got a drink we really didn’t see them again. They were rude and short with us. Unfortunately a few of my friends have had the same experience. We were really excited to try some food there but ended up leave before getting food because the service was so bad.
