Peaches, heirloom tomatoes, stracchiatella cheese, arugula and balsamic glaze - a combo made in heaven. Ditto for bacon-wrapped, chorizo-stuffed medjool dates. Every dish was delicious, the service was excellent.

We stopped here for dinner and it was delicious. It's cozy and charming and perfect weather to sit outside. Our food was yummy. Everyone loved what they ordered and the focaccia was divine. Would love to visit again on my next trip to Cleveland.

Tasty food, very warm atmosphere, cool farm to table foods. We are not drinkers, but the wine selections looked really good and separate desert wines too. Pictured is the salmon and tofu bowl dishes.

We were going to see the Asian Lantern Festival at the Cleveland Zoo and decided to try this restaurant. We wanted something casual and fairly close to the Zoo and this seemed to be a good choice since it is right across from the Westside...More

We visited the Flying Fig after reading the reviews, and the availability of cheap parking across the street at the West Side Market didn't hurt either. The Fig has a lively atmosphere and does get quite loud, but not to the point of distraction. The...More

The Flying Fig has long been at the forefront of the farm-to-table movement. After nearly two decades, it remains our goal to support small family farms and local food artisans while creating critically acclaimed menus that evolve frequently to reflect seasonal availability. Our bar features a large, diverse wine list and craft cocktails prepared with local, fresh, and seasonal ingredients. Our atmosphere reflects our diverse neighborhood and is casual and friendly. Founded by owner and James Beard Award-nominated executive chef, Karen Small, next door to the restaurant is a small boulangerie-inspired pantry called Market at the Fig. The Market offers artisan sandwiches, fresh breads, and local products like pasta sauces and wines. Together, the two storefronts create a contemporary European-inspired corner on a cobble-stoned street in Cleveland.
