We truly enjoyed our visit to Flying Fig. The focaccia bread was wonderful, and the chicken dumplings were super flavorful. My husband thought the tagliatelle was really good. I ordered two side dishes for my meal: mac & cheese and the asparagus. The mac came with a superb tomato jam that I wanted more of, and the asparagus had a... More

This place is very nicely located and has a good atmosphere. I wanted to have some vegetarian fare and they had some good ones. I had the specialties of the day and they were well made and well served. The bar had a good selection of liquor and beers(including craft on tap which is often a good sign) and they... More

So we had a reservation for 4, and when we arrived they wanted to seat us at what was essentially a table for 3.. a booth with one side's seat quite short for 2 people to be comfortable. We had to request a change, even though the place was far from full at that moment. The menu is nice, with... More

My husband a friend and myself had dinner on a Tuesday night. We had made a reservation for 5:30 because we had tickets for an event downtown. There were only a few people at the bar when we arrived, so we would not have needed the reservation. There were one or two other parties dining by the time we left.It... More

Cute place, great area by the old market. Excellent food! And a nice selection of craft beers. Service was a bit student arrogant...a bit full of themselves. Otherwise an awesome place.

It's always a treat when you have a perfect meal at a good price. This is the only place to go out on cleveland for a nice meal. Such solid quality and excellent service.

We had Sunday brunch at the Flying Fig. The Italian Cuban was very good and very unique. Another person in our party had the Chicken Salad and the other had tomato soup and sandwich. It was all very good but with drinks a little on the expensive side.

We stopped in for a glass of wine. The woman at the front was abrupt and dismissive of us since we didn't have reservations. It was quite crowded in the bar; so, I understand her hesitation, but we really did not feel welcome at all until the sweet younger woman at the bar helped us.

I diner here for brunch on Saturday afternoon and loved that they had just as many brunch options as they did breakfast option. My sister and I shared the Cuban and Eggplant sandwiches.

We went there on 1/21/17 and got our table at 7. It is a nice place but small as advertised and loud. We began with drinks and beers as well as a bacon encrusted dates which were small but good and a cheese plate which was very good. They ran out of a special very early but we all liked... More
