I absolutely love going to the Fat Canary! The food is amazing, although the prices are quite high. My husband and I usually just go for dessert (they have incredible desserts) and coffee, which makes it much cheaper.

I went there on July 17th, 2008, while on vaction with my family. It was my mothers birthday so i called ahead and made reservations. We were seated promptly and to our surprise they had happy Birthday and my mothers name on the Menu at our table. She loved it and i thought it was a very clever thing for them to do! THe birthday dinner turned out to be very nice and would go back there if ever in that area!!
The food and wine selection was great!

I've travelled all around the world and experienced many fine dining restaurants, howerer this is and most likely will be the best. The food is unbelievable....such a great menu. The wine selections, as well, were above and beyond my expectations. I've been lucky to have always had excellent, knowledgeable servers. Interesting table set ups lend to interesting convesations w/ neighbors. Food is expensive, but worth every penny. Always make a reservation if possible, but typically spots will open up at the bar throughout the evening. A must try in Williamsburg.

Pros: Fantastic food, knowledgeable staff

Cons: Need reservations, parking can be tough in that area sometimes, not alot of tables

The Fat Canary is just as good, if not better, than the Trellis Restaurant across the street. Although smaller, the food and service compares comparably to the Trellis. Mr. Tom Powers, owner, is always meeting customers.

Went there twice on a recent visit, once for drinks, then for dinner. Highly recommended. Friendly and efficient service, everyone seemed to be having a good time, the owner was greeting people and outstanding food. Cannot imagine going to Williamsburg and not having dinner there.

The restaurant has a comfortable room and the food ranges from good to excellent. The staff ranges from excellent to poor. Our server Roy who was fine in the beginning of the evening, snapped when we asked for our drink to be freshened since it was too limey and he asked how he should fix it, I said more tequila and contreau... He fired back, fix an all alcohol drink with more liquor and snatched the glass off the table knocking it into my hand without apologizing while rushing off. My girlfriends mother said is there something wrong(?), he snapped this is the third time we are making your drink and the truth is we had one round that we would?ve preferred being colder and we drank the first round anyway not sending them back. The second round, the one in question was just too limey and if it is too limey Einstein, adding more tequila to cut the acidity of the lime along with some cointreau to sweeten it becomes the solution. Wait staffs work hard for their tips and all of us at the table have been waiters and waitresses along with busing tables and are sympathetic to tipping properly for good service. He chose to walk to the back of the restaurant after the bartender took over the making of our drinks and visibly discussed the events at our table with staff members while looking over at our table and snickering. Somehow the bartender Scot not only managed to repair our drinks but also made the remainder of our night pleasant. He assured us that our waiter wouldn't be returning to finish our dinner service and offered to remove the mixed drinks from our bill. The moral to this story is the food and service at the Fat Canary can be excellent and one bad bird can "foul" perhaps not the whole flock, but enough that it would've been a lost evening if it weren't for the sensitive, kind nature of another individual. With that being said, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Pros: Food, Drinks, Ambience and Some Staff (Scott) You can eat at the bar as well

Cons: Poor attitude (Roy), when it occurs

One of the best meals that my wife and I ever had. Make reservations well in advance!

City Search is way off to rate Dakota Bay Grill ahead of Fat Canary. Pricey but you get what you pay for unlike the other tourist traps in this Colonial town.
