We stopped by on a Friday night and after a drink at the bar we were seated. The lighting and decor were hip but warm and welcoming on a rainy evening and all the staff were incredibly friendly in a sincere way. We loved all our food options (meat plate and delcious grape/gorgonzola flat bread) except for one butter (garlic... More

This is a small pub and restaurant in the Japanese area of San Francisco. It is clean, tables not too close to each other, prices very reasonable and the service is great. The staff are very friendly, helpful and all in their 20's. The menu is good and varied for the size of the place, it is delicious, plentiful and... More

Great neighborhood bar with excellent beer selection and Pimm's Cup drinks. Food was very good and relatively unique for a small bar.

The Fat Angel is a hidden gem. It is a small busy and friendly bar with a good selection of beers, ciders and wine. There is a small menu and the food was excellent; try the flatbread with white grapes, prosciutto and Gorgonzola. If my husband and I were staying longer in San Francisco we would definitely go back.

Small bar and restaurant near Japan Town. Excellent selection of dark draft beers, many with high ABV. Service was quite slow the 2 nights we were there, but pleasant. I did not care for the deconstructed chicken pot pie (mushy), or the flavored butters, but the kale salad was good, and huge. We will return, for beer.

We had dinner at this place following the suggestion from our Airbnb hosts in San Francisco and we were glad we did. Unfortunately the place, like many in US, does not take reservations, but the person in charge of the tables was very good in estimating the wait time (around 40 minutes on a Saturday night). The food was very... More

Fat Angel is an awesome, intimate place that is tucked away, reminiscent of a delightful Italian cafe that you happen to stumble upon. They have an excellent selection of craft beer and tasty wine and the food is fantastic. I love the locals only vibe and look forward to making our visits a regular habit.

It looks like a boutique specialist beer bar but is much more. The atmosphere was really relaxing and comfortable partly I suspect because it is not that big a place. We just walked up and were certainly not disappointed with the food or service which was great. Some of the best salads and slides we've ever had. They do also... More

A group of six of us stopped by on a Sunday evening. Since the place is small, we enjoyed a drink outside before a table was available. Several of us ordered the maple bacon butter, which was delicious. The chicken pot pie was really good (it came in deconstructed form), would definitely recommend it. Overall, we had a great time...
