Fat Lady is one of those very old fashioned restaurants that are slowly disappearing, more's the pity. There's some dishes they do very well, especially at lunch time. We prize this, as it's actually more difficult to find a good place for lunch downtown than it is to find a good dinner restaurant.
The calamari steak 'abalone style' is a disappearing classic, which is a shame because Fat Lady does a great job demonstrating why it should remain on more menus. The Australian lamb "lollipops" are excellent, as is the old-fashioned housemade bleu cheese dressing on the basic green salads. All the beef dishes, lunch and dinner, are excellent, and the occasionally-offered chimichurri sauce is outstanding.
During a hot spell I had the vegetable salad Nicoise as my entree, with an addition of a perfectly cooked 6-oz filet of salmon added, and it was outstanding. We don't like a lot of dressing on our salads, and this one was perfectly done.
Service is brisk, cheerful, and efficient. Decor is old Victorian, deliberately campy. Chairs are tortuous; tables a bit crowded in. Upstairs has more daylight than downstairs.
