Really good food especially the Crostini's, Lamb Dishes, and Carpaccio. I was suprised that it was pretty affordable and its not your typical food. Great with friends and sharing.

Checked out the place a few days ago... Didn't like the food. The service wasn't particularly professional either. The interior designer did a good job though. Overall, a rare case of a bad experience in a NY restaraunt.

When I went into the Fig it was right before the holidays and I didnt know what to expect. Times are hectic and fuses are short. Well not here! Everything was great from top to bottom. Service was right on, pairing my parties' meals with wines and olive oils. The atmosphere was sleek and inviting. And I would feel comfortable with a group of business associates or on a date. A++!!!

I tried the spanish tasting plate and it was great! I'd recommend ordering various tasting plates and appetizers rather than a full entree as the appetizers seemed to be more interesting.

I just discovered this restaurant last week and have already been back twice! For appetizers, the Fig Jamon Goat Cheese Carpaccio is amazing and lager than expected and, for an entree, the Papillote of Sole is very flavorful. Can't wait to return.

This place is very unique and the food is absolutely delicioius. My girlfriend and I had the Fig & Olive salad, crostinis and tilapia ceviche, all of which were very flavorful and good-sized portions. The sparkling wine we chose was excellent, the service was great, and our bill was reasonable. We left very happy and very full.

I went on a Tuesday evening and sat at the communal table/bar. The food was fine -- I got the 6 cheese plate and found 5 of them to be above average, and my companion got a salad. And I was happy with my wine. The service though would have been comical had I not been the recipient. In addition to having to ask the waitperson for everything (bread, olive oil, utensils, water, attention . . .), when she did remember that we were her patrons, she asked us three times how the meal was so far -- all within our first two bites. In summary, I would call the service scattered and poor.
