We stopped here because we had eaten at a different location and it was great and this one didn’t disappoint either. Food was great and delicious and our server Cherie was splendid, cheerful and professional service. Thank you for another fine meal.

There was nothing wrong with the food or service at Fatz, but nothing was particularly memorable or inspirational either. The steak was appropriately cooked, tender & juicy, but almost completely devoid of flavor. Vegetables were ok, but seemed tired. I'd eat there again based on...More
