Great mojitos. My friends and I all loved the food we ordered. I had the Moussaka which was incredible. For desert I had the vegan chocolate cake which was even better! Great fudgy center. I could eat here every day.
Our waiter was great, very nice, very attentive, very cute :-)
I have no complaints whatsoever about Fatty's and Co.
Hey... Fatty's is FANTASTIC!! I live in Orange County and am not that familiar with restaurants in Eagle Rock...but found this GEM of a place. If you're ever in the area and want to find a really nice place to eat, great atmosphere and great tasting food definitely eat at Fatty's!! The staff is welcoming and friendly, wine is great.... and the food heavenly.
Lastly, if you order the dessert... you HAVE to try the Fudgey (Chocolate cake, with chocolate ganache, coconut and pecans) need I say more!
I'm a picky eater and love my food to be simple yet tasty... restaurant quality yet remind me of home. Menue item of choice for me is their ""Margarita"" pizza... mmmmmm. Perfect balance of garlic, cheese and tomatoe sauce. End the meal with a nice chocolate fondue and I'm all set for the evening.

Make sure to be very clear when communicating to the wait staff, as they aren't the sharpest tools in the shed. It took several attempts to get a glass of wine; it wasn't until we finally walked up to the counter and asked for it AGAIN that we got the response, ""I thought you wanted it with your dinner?"" Mind you, she came asking for drink orders and proceeded to bring everyone else at the table their drinks. We let that one slide, but the real doozy was what happened when we ordered our dessert.....we pre-ordered the chocolate fondue (it takes some preparation time) for ourselves and after about 35 mins we watched our waitress serve it to the birthday girl who wasn't even on our tab. After asking where ""our"" fondue was, the waitress pointed to what was now the community fondue and said that she thought we were buying it for the birthday table. wtf? When we explained that we were not buying the fondue for the other table, she asked if we would still like an order. Uh, yeah, we did; however, we were not willing to pay for 2 orders worth since it was not our mistake where the first one went. She proceeded to serve us our fondue followed by our check which she kindly charged us for both fondues ($20 a pop) as well as a 20% gratuity charge (we were a group of 4 & the rule on the 20% was tables of 5 or more). After confronting the situation, they refused to fix THEIR mistake & remove the charge from the bill, and they were extremely unapologetic for what they were calling a ""miscommunication."" Not to mention we spent over $200 for VERY small portions of overly priced food. Needless to say, we will NEVER go back and we HIGHLY recommend that you don't either.

We've lived in the area (Altadena) for years, I've been vegetarian for 20 of those, I've googled vegetarian restaurants/Los Angeles, How have I never been to or heard of Fatty's before friends told me of it last week? We had a friend here from Texas and when we get together, we love good food and wine. We found both at Fatty's, and I am Thrilled to finally have an excellent vegetarian restaurant within a reasonable radius of my home! So many veg restaurants are not attractive inside, even if the food is OK. The one out in the Valley is a little too far, too ""precious,"" and not a place for non-vegetarians.
Fatty's is wonderful! My only small suggestion would be to slightly dim the large chandelier lights at night- it was just a bit too ""lit-up"" for me.
If only, if only, they were in Altadena (we are seriously restaurant-starved!)
I can hope for a sister restaurant, can't I?
My favorites? The monster-sized ""little dishes"" plate is a great way to sample lots of things and gives you just the right amount of food (blackened tempeh was great) and oh, I hope they never stop making the fudgey- it would be a great loss to the planet.
Remind me to see if they cater???

The dinner was really good. I had the zeppelin pizza and my sister had the pear gorgonzola salad. We went with a large group - most which were not vegetarians and everyone liked it. The deserts were amazing! We split the fudgey and it was so rich. They also have a nice wine list that has a good range of prices. I have already recommend Fatty's to everyone I know!

I happened upon Fatty's last year sometime and continue to eat there as often as I can. The food is amazing. The wine selection is fantastic and I've never had a problem with the service. Some nights they get pretty busy and so I recommend a reservation...but If you ever end up waiting you can order a drink and/or appetizer to keep you occupied.
You have your choice of FREE soup or salad with entrees and I think the portion sizes are perfect. I never leave hungry. I am certainly someone on a budget these days and this is by far affordable for locally grown, organic and healthy food.

Fatty's...what can one say? The genius behind every concoction is apparent, and Odie and Kim absolutely are stunning as chefs. Kim knows her wines and Odie's got desserts down, and they both refuse to settle for less, even down to the miniscule details like a more inexpensive sugar.
But I've got you all beat: I worked there briefly. And learned an alarming amount of info in a ridiculously short amount of time. And it says something that even now, I'm snooping online to see how it's going for them. Despite the things I could possibly say, the food is phenomenal, so go. Yes, Odie and Kim are eccentric; everyone that knows them or has ever worked there will tell you that. And yes, they can be jerks, just like Anyone else on planet earth. Trust me, I know. But guess what? They can also dance around with you to blaring blues and discuss the pros and cons of tea presses, show you how to whip vegan frosting and argue the finer points of a mojito. I haven't found too many places with owners like that.
And the chick complaining about the wine portions. Gimme a break. A standard glass of wine is 5-6 ounces, and we used a ruler to measure them at Fatty's. Seriously. If it's truly one of those ""jumbo flagon"" nights, Carlo Rossi is always an option, or just get the whole bottle and pour it yourself.

Wow. To see your kneejerk reaction lash about so wildly is a sad sight indeed. I am none of the epithets you tossed at my friend and me. I haven't been a ""flesh-eater"" for nearly 20 years. I am neither a ""reactionary"" nor a conservative. The ""disdain"" you sense is in response to your apparent inability to a) take constructive criticism, b) to apologize for calling my friend a liar (this, indeed WAS intentional--have you ""researched"" any deeper?) and c) to acknowledge your error. Talk about reactionary! To recap: your accusation to my friend Samlap was that we dined on 5/11, ordered no wine and pretty much had nothing to complain about. However, since I still have the receipt, dated 5/10, your version holds no water. All you have to do, instead of trying to prove the customer wrong, Ms Dingle, is to is to accept that our service that evening was dreadful and that you made a mistake with your ""research."" Your efforts to be ""ethical, responsible and humane"" are laudable, but in food service, how you treat your clientele is just as important as how you treat the environment. If you indeed feel that ""good is in the eye of the beholder"" when it comes to fine dining, then perhaps you need to eat out more often. There are generally accepted ideas about how a ""good"" restaurant should be run. My review of our night in your establishment was in NO way a personal attack, as you claim. It was, instead, an effort to marry the promise of what Fatty's once was (and could be) with what IS. A great restaurant with terrible service IS a tragedy. If you can't stand the heat, then perhaps you should get out of your own kitchen.
