    I like going to Fat Raddish. The food is always good, maybe there could be more varied cocktails. They are able to accommodate my family, including my 2 babies in their stroller. It is quite quiet, no need to shout to have a conversation. The only drawback: the place is cash only, come prepared.

    Food is better than ever. The Scottish egg is a brilliant appetizer, perfect for sharing and the duck and chicken were juicy, tender. In a word exceptional.

    Entree portions were tiny for the price and we got sick after we ate here. Monkfish Vindaloo had a tiny piece of fish hidden under lots of sauce. The roasted chicken portion was embarrassingly small. Waitress was condescending.

    Appetizers and snacks were fantastic - bacon wrapped Brussel sprouts and squash and burrata were great! Entrees could have used some more oomph in when it comes to flavor profile but the proteins were cooked excellently. I recommend for ambiance cocktails and Appetizers. Entrees left something to be desired but that may be because the bar was set so high following the first course.

    I met a friend here for dinner. We were tucked away in a small table behind the stairs. The menu contains plenty of creative palette pleasers, including some delicious vegetarian options. My friend and I order 2 apps and 2 big plates and shared everything. We also enjoyed the ambience and had no problem getting caught up.

    I was surprised at how lively it was but also happy to be seated so quickly. The atmosphere was upbeat and energetic. The waitress service was indifferent and she offered us nothing in the way of recommendations (first timers) or enthusiasm. The prevalence of man buns was notable. There is some trust thing in hanging up coats communally without anyone having any control but in practice, not so workable. You are in NYC on a cold night in winter and at least 90% of people have black coats. Hard to find your coat at the end of the night. The food portions were small. The taste - nothing overwhelmingly wonderful. My 3 guests felt the same. It's fun and its cool and overall I did enjoy myself but the food had little to do with it.

    My friends and I shared a delicious weeknight dinner at the Fat Radish. It had a cozy atmosphere for a cold winter evening, and we warmed up immediately over mulled wine and creative cocktails. They had a nice wine menu too, and our waitress was helpful with recommendations. To start, we shared the crab gratin and squash salad, both of which were creative and delicious without being too heavy. We also tried the duck breast and sea bass special—hard to say which was better!

    We loved the ambiance of this restaurant. The servers were so friendly, even to our kids. We were visiting from Colorado, per recommendation from a friend, and glad we did. The burger was one of the best we had on our trip to NYC and the truffle parmesan fries were delish! We had a special treat of apple butter filled doughnuts from the manager which was a bonus!

    Not the best value for brunch... maybe it's a better dinner spot? The tahini and carrot ginger dips were almost tasteless, although the veggies themselves were indeed fresh but they left something to be desired, somewhat bland in preparation. The celery root pot pie was good, but not special. I just think that with all the great, creative food that is offered in that area and just across the Williamsburg bridge at a better value... Fat Radish needs to step it up. Service was great!

    Pretty restaurant, very nice staff. The drinks and appetizers were amazing- have the scotch egg and crab dip. Our main course however was totally average and not what we expected. I would have liked to talk to our waitress but her section filled up and she didn't come by until we'd finished eating. I think the food is good but for the prices I expect everything to taste amazing. Better for drinks and small plates

    Fat Radish was GREAT. The roasted carrot appetizer was SO FLAVORFUL. Every time I took another bite, another unique flavor exploded on my tongue. The spaghetti squash dish was also heavenly, bursting with unique flavors. Accompanying it with feta and beets was a great idea. The pot pie crust was to die for as well. Oh, and the flourless chocolate cake--best I've ever had. Only thing to be warned about--if you order the "Fat Radish Plate" it is all steamed, not flavorings added, very boring, just know that if you order it--very healthy, but bland.

    Really great for lunch. Service pace can be a little leisurely and at night it can be an absolute zoo, but lunches are generally quiet and fairly relaxed. Great food, lots of veggie options, bowls with veggies and dif legumes as well as burgers and duck fat fries (so good!) Great for a quiet lunch or a busy noisy dinner

    Food was delicious as always, though not best value. The problem was service -- once we were done eating we felt a lot of pressure to leave as quickly as possible even though there were plenty of empty tables. This is not the first time we feel like we've "run out of time" even as we continue to order food.

    A bit disappointed this time. Waitress brought over the wrong entrée. SHe brought the same thing my friend had ordered. I decided just to have it as opposed to waiting. I thought the pork and bacon curry dish was dry. My friend ordered it without the curry and I so the two dishes were identical.

    Had all the hallmarks of a great dining experience... interesting, artsy industrial dining room, creative menu, LES location, but they just don't pull it off. The execution was not great... the refried beans with the huevos rancheros were almost raw and hard as rocks, the steak that came with it was of poor quality, tough and chewy; the avocado toast had hard boiled eggs chunks haphazardly thrown on top and difficult to eat with the rest of the dish, and the squash with poached eggs was bland. I'd give it one more try, but was totally underwhelmed.
