Rich Cho sent me here and I'll have to respectfully disagree with him that the Ricotta Gnocchi is an elite bucket list dish. Otherwise, the food was good but not excellent.

This place is about good food, service and ambience...not hype. We had a very nice experience that went beyond our expectations. Our server was friendly and attentive...not intrusive. Definitely worth a visit.

We booked here because we wanted something a bit more innovative than the traditional southern cooking. The main courses, however, were completely uninspired, and the presentation was unappealing. My schitzel came with a few pickles and some odd greens, and my husband's fish was more...More

The restaurant is very welcoming. The fish stew is out of this world, not to be missed. Lovely salad appetizer and interesting wine list. Cannot wait to return.

We had heard nothing but raves about FIG and were delighted when our hosts were able to make reservations for Saturday night dinner during a weekend visit. Among the four of us we ordered the chicken pate, crab pasta, gnocchi, porchetta, fish stew, and roasted...More

Reservations are extremely hard to come by, even for those who call two months ahead of time. So if you cannot get a reservation arrive 15 minutes early prior to the restuarant opening and grab a seat at the bar. Full menu is served there...More

OK, so let's think of this as an annuity. The menu is definitely interesting. Where else can you have burned eggplant and cottage cheese and absolutely love it? But, the value equation... A glass of average chard for $15, a piece of fish I've never...More

We have always waited too late to get a reservation so we planned ahead and came for our first time. The service was outstanding. The menu changes nightly. I love that you can have a conversation without yelling. The tables aren’t crammed on top of...More

Very attentive and knowledgeable servers. All entrees and appetizers ordered by our group were consistently great. In a city full of great restaurants this place stands out.

Yummy ribeye cooked just right with onions and carrots off the grill. Perfect combination. Sat on corner of Bar on the way in, good for talking and people watching. Very good service and atmosphere. Worth every penny. Good wine list with Tempranillo from California.

I'm not sure. We had a reservation for just my wife and I. It looked like there were a few parties of 6 but the night I was there I didn't see any big groups. Doesn't mean they can't do it but just passing along my... More
