Honestly can't wait to get back there once this whole Corona Virus BULLISH is over with. I hate viruses. I hate them just as much as I love Fat Baby's food.

Good experience but can you do something for the sound? I was yelling at the person across the table from me

I would recommend the Bar Scene. It was energetic- Great Cocktails and fun vibes. We went on Valentine's day and I seriously should have done more research. The tables were high tops set in a corner for Valentine's day dinner and it felt corny and not a great ambiance, plus next to the kitchen.

Food was OK. Not terrible but you have definetly have had better sushi. The Bao Sliders were on point. Drinks are amazing.

Its an OK for me.

We saw Fat Baby on Chronicle. The atmosphere was terrific, cozy neighborhood bar and restaurant. Wait staff was friendly. Food was outstanding and unique. Can’t wait to go back!

Super friendly staff ad overall a great spot! A bit challenging to park but it’s Boston, so when is that ever easy?! I will definitely go out of my way again, since it’s totally worth it.

The menu has evolved, but in the wrong direction in my opinion. No sashimi is a real bummer when I’m in the mood for sushi. Being back the real ginger.

Everything was very dirty. The water pitcher had a spider in it. Menus had food and sauces caked on.

Not a sushi restaurant. No nigiri or handrolls, and only fried or heavily Americanized-style maki. Yelp was misleading. The hamachi special was delicious, but other food was subpar and “fishy”.

I was excited to try this place but was quickly disappointed only shortly after arriving. Poor service by the staff, appetizer came out cold, no additional drinks were offered and we had to wait to order anything additional. The sushi was very good!
But, I won’t be back as there are other places!!

The food and drinks at Fat Baby are great, but we were unaware that the restaurant was hosting karaoke that night as well. It was too loud to have a conversation with my friend sitting across the table. We also were not seated until 30 mins after our reservation (we had arrived on time).

I've been coming here for several years.....never been disappointed. Fabulous menu with items for everyone, even my son, who does not eat fish! Three great selections of Poke, five dumpling offerings, and Fat Baby had a special: $1 per chicken dumpling with a great dipping sauce. Cocktails, white wine and sake were consumed by three of us while we enjoyed a Dragon Roll, Sneaky Russian and So Beefy maki rolls! Wonderful!

I've been to Fat Baby twice, once during the week which was enjoyable, once on the weekend which was terrible. I felt like I had entered a club while trying to enjoy a nice dinner. The food is good, but the music level and raunchy atmosphere were not enjoyable.

Had a better experience the first time I went there. This time it was a Friday night. The music was too loud and had to scream the whole night to speak to my friends that were right next to me. I can deal with that, however, service was slow and inattentive.

Made a reservation for 6pm for last minute at opentable at 5. When we got there, it wasn't busy till nearly 7. Our service was friendly and nice service but the quality of the drink and food is nah... definitely not gonna come back again. We ordered the pork bun, wagyu dumplings, and chili wontons. The dumplings sling are thick, you couldn't taste the wagyu beef, it just taste like regular beef. The sushi, we ordered the beefy, teriyaki salmon, and the Russian maki, which the rice are mush... it seemed they cooked the rice too long to make it soft, when they rolled it, the rice the mashed together...

My experience was wonderful and I truly enjoyed it. Our table was extremely close to the front door which made me freezing but I made do. My crunchy tuna roll was DELICIOUS but if I had some advice it would be not to bring it over 30 seconds after I order it...regardless how busy the night is I know it didn’t take you 15 seconds to roll and 15 seconds to bring out, you are either mass producing or this is someone else’s leftovers. Either way, with raw fish that’s gross.

Truly, for the price of the night I expected better, but it’s not so bad I won’t be going back again. 3/5.

I went to Fat Baby for Maki Monday and the sushi was so fresh and delicious. Definitely worth going on a Monday if you enjoy sushi. The drinks are strong. Our waiter was friendly and attentive.
