We went to this sushi restaurant because we heard good things about it. Unfortunately it was a bad experience from start to finish. We were seated immediately but did not see a waiter for over 10 minutes. As it turned out there was only one...More

Had a great dinner here in a cool restaurant one very hot August night. Seven of us and we all loved. I had a salmon teriyaki that was so delicious and so uniquely prepared. The sushi was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant.

This was our first visit, and since EJ likes sushi we went to the Fat Salmon. It was everything we expected it to be - varied menu and very well prepared and service was great. Well decorated, pleasant atmosphere and moderately noisy. We’ll be back.

The sushi is fresh and the bento boxes for lunch are both really good. You will need 1.5 hour to finish lunch. They are really slow in getting you your check.

On the bright side the apps (edamame, seaweed salad) were great! Green tea ice cream was great. The tuna sashimi and nigiri were good but, the rolls-not so much...they lacked good flavor combinations and were mostly cooked varieties. The wait staff were not very helpful...More

Called to see what time Fat Salmon was open until for lunch and was told 2:30 but they seat until 2:15 and the kitchen stays open until 2:45 so we raced over and arrived at 2 thinking we had plenty of time. Quickly looked over...More
