Ate at the Fat Lady for brunch after checking out of the Waterfront Hotel. We both had the asparagus omelet. Very tasty and a very large portion. The complimentary pastries leave much to be desired--they are basically flavorless mini muffins & a piece of cornbread. Not awesome. Mimosas are pricey at $7/glass.

The service was a bit slow. Overall, if you're in the area, worth checking out for brunch, but it's pretty average.

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.

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.

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!
