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.

The bar service was great. Once we got to our table, everything went down hill. It literally took 15 or 20 minutes to get drinks. Some of us didn’t get what we ordered. When we ordered food, it came out fairly promptly. I frequently had to remind our waittress what our drink orders were. And the restaurant was only half-full with other patrons, so I couldn’t figure out the disconnect. We had a good time because we all enjoyed each other but the poor service was a distraction.

Great atmosphere great food! Staff seemed a bit stressed out. Was not too busy. But all staff seemed very frazzled which lost a bit of their professionalism. The host for our table was great and didn't seem stressed. But the lady who sat us down didn't give much eye contact was very focused on things going around and was very short and rushed off and other staff were dropping things while rushing around. These things make customers think something is going wrong. But all customers seemed quite relaxed. Love the food!! Definitely recommend for the food! Great serving sizes great mood lighting

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!!
