“Had a great meal there on Halloween!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Had a great lunch there on Halloween an the place was decorated to the "nines". I had the calamari abalone style and it was fantastic. Great bar and outside tables as well. Perfect service. Plan on going back around Christmas to see the decorations then. Street parking was easy maybe 1 block walk.

“Cool place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

I have only eaten here once and can't wait to go back. I loved everything about it, the staff, the ambiance, the food, even the chilled bottles of water on the table so you don't have to wait for a refill. The food was great (we went for brunch on the weekend) and it is such a cool looking place. Easy parking. Perfect to walk to from one of the Jack London Square Hotels.

“Great food, service, decor and adjacent parking at Jack London Square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

It's a dark and bordello motif hall. Watch your step going in or you'll fall on your face to its carpet. The drinks were fair but could be better - rum sour should be service with a salt rim on the old-fashion glass and should have a full jigger of rum. I had the lobster bisque which was fair but could have used more pepper. The service was excellent. The men's room was a Victorian motif, quite pleasant full-bodies nude beauties on the walls. Very nice, best part of the restaurant!

“Best of Everything!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Our motor yacht is berthed in Jack London Square and within walking distance of Fat Lady's so we eat here at often as we can. It is truly the best of everything....scrumptous food, fabulous service, great wine list, full bar, good prices and although the restaurant itself is nice enough for linen tablecloths and napkins, they do not look down on you if you happen to come in shorts and sandals. We have NEVER had a bad meal here. Very unique place so don't miss it!
