    What amazing service! The staff was very attentive and considerate. We were there ahead of our designated reservation time and they kindly seated us early. We then had to rush off to a concert and did not have time for dessert. They were so sweet! They packed a to-do piece of pie on the house! Food was spot on delicious. Their prices are a bit pricey but well worth it!!

    Aside from the front door hostess, everything was great. The hostess was unfriendly, and didn’t give appearance she even wanted to be present. A bad tone to set before dining.

    The hostess was extremely rude. She rudely stated there were no more reservations and, there was no way we could make a reservation to eat tonight. I used open table and made a same day reservation. Thankfully the manager was very hospitable and friendly. He indeed honored our open table reservation and seated us. Our server was amazing. She helped us through the menu and made sure we ate our vegetables. Lol. She said that is the mom in her. The ambiance and music was surprising but very hip and cool. The noise level was very low. The food was absolutely delicious. With the exception of the hostess, I highly recommend this establishment.

    We had a party of four and this was our first time at the restaurant. We asked our server if there were any specials or if she had recommendations. She said they had a restaurant anniversary special for the month of March which included chicken salad, walnut shrimp, pork chow mien, New York steak, chicken and vegetables stir fry and dessert for $35.00 per person. The food was delicious! We shared all the entrees and took some home. Plenty of food. For dessert we had the restaurant's famous banana cream pie and it did not disappoint. It was great. We will definitely return.

    Overpriced and overrated. Had to send back green beans because they were COLD. Nice enough service but inattentive. For a $200 meal, it’s shocking how sub-par it was. I wonder how much more they will be able to coast on their name recognition/reputation

    When we go near Sacramento, this is an absolute must! You can't go wrong with their fried dumplings! The Hunan chicken chow main was equally good. We grabbed a piece of banana creme pie to share later. Lots of bananas!

    Always a stellar experience. Happy Hour prices until 6. The mandarin duck and lamb skewer appetizers were to die for. Served with a choice of 3 sauces: plum, spicy mustard, and chunky spicy peppers. They were great with all 3. My friend enjoyed her martinis. She also had the honey walnut shrimp and a noodle dish. We shared a slice of banana cream pie for dessert, Perfection!

    Delicious! Pot stickers were the best we've ever had and loved the sauces . Wor won ton soup was fresh and flavorful. Mongolian beef spicy but not overpoweringly. Our waitress was efficient and fun! Of course my Mai Tai was perfect! We enjoyed our lunch so much that we returned the next day for a repeat performance! Banana cream pie is truly a treat as well as the creamiest fresh ginger ice cream ever! The wait staff went out of their way to make our experience special.

    This is one of my favorite Sacramento restaurants. The bar section can be chilly for dining since the door is in direct line with seating. If dining, it's best to sit beyond the bar.

    Frank Fat's is the place we go [often] but always around our anniversary, because it all, started here 28 years ago and has been a tradition ever since. It's most appreciated when they can accommodate us in the back room with a booth. Great servers and hosting. Love it. Okay, ad I absolutely love the Yu Kwok and Immigrant's Beef. We will be going back often and especially for the happiest times. Great place ..... ***** STARS !!!!!

    This was the first time I wasn't impressed with the food or the service at Frank Fat's. I would recommend it. I think it might depend on who waits on you because other server's were very nice. And it was Valentine's Day so may that's why it took so long to get my scallops. My date was polite but I don't think she was impressed either.
