Fat Fish in West Hollywood *terrible*

My boyfriend and I have been planning a sushi chow down forever and we finally got to it last Saturday night. After some research we decided to check out Fat Fish in West Hollywood. This place ruined my sushi throw down and was a huge disappointment!

The food
Not bad, but not good either, way too expensive for what you get. We ordered a crunch salad (with two types of crunchies) and all the stuff on it tasted extremely stale and the greens were very warm. What really got me was the rolls were huge, like too big to fit in my mouth, or even eat in a couple of bites. I found this incredibly frustrating as eating a California rolls was like, one bite of all cucumber, then picking pieces of crab and avocado off my plate.

The Service
OMG I've never been so insulted. We sat at the sushi bar so we didn't have to rely on the waiter too much, and thank God for that. he took our drink and appetizer order. We stuck with water and ordered a bottle of sake and salad. After we were halfway through our 4th roll he comes over and says "I'll get your bottle of sake now" we kindly replied "we're almost done, no thank you" to which he said "Oh...OK!" and just walked off, no apology or anything! So we decided on one more roll, and I decided I wanted a beer, and asked our waiter for it. I then watched him serve drinks to every other table, and then sit down at the end of the bar and talk with his friends. Finally I got so fed up I shot him a look and he brought out, not a bottle of beer, but a LARGE beer. He didn't even ask me what size I wanted. I'm 120 pounds what am I gonna do with a 24 oz beer to myself!?

please spread the word, DO NOT EAT AT FAT FISH!!!
