Fig Tree Cafe - Hillcrest
We love the food at Fig TreeWe love the food at Fig Tree Cafe. It's a nice little neighborhood restaurant.
Our favorites are the Beet Salad, it's very fresh with red and yellow beets, and generous enough to share.
Also love the lobster mac & cheese, they put in a good amount of lobster, we shared this among 4 people.
We also love the pasta dishes, Jidori Chicken, and short ribs.
We didn't try the desserts.
The only thing missing is they have a hard alcohol license.
Generous portion, moderate price.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI've visited Fig Tree regularlyI've visited Fig Tree regularly and enjoy the food very much. It's creative, wonderfully flavored, and fresh. My single complaint would be the wine list - it's either a poor selection or just not my taste.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe scallop special was simplyThe scallop special was simply amazing. Wonderfully flavorful and beautiful presentation. My only reservation was that, as a confirmed chocoholic, they didn't have a suitably decadent chocolate dessert. Oh well, can't have everything! The service was perfect, attentive but not too much. Can't wait to go back.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile on vacation in San DiegoWhile on vacation in San Diego we found this place. My husband and I shared a wedge salad and mushroom bruschetta. Both were very good. I had the special pasta that night - rigatoni and shredded short ribs. I usually don't order pasta out, but this was unbelievable. My husband also had the special veal steak which he enjoyed. Our server was prompt and friendly.2/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
