My sister works at USC, and
My sister works at USC, and I was in town for a visit, so she recommended we do lunch at Moreton Fig. GREAT IDEA. It was a beautiful day (this is SoCal after all), so we sat outside on the shady patio. There are a few tables in the sun, but most of the patio is in dappled shade from a gigantic tree in the middle. I had the chopped salad, which was fully loaded with Italian meats (capicola, salami, prosciutto) and vegetables (peppers, chickpeas, sunchokes) and a light dressing. The salad was the *perfect* size. And my meyer lemonade with rosemary a perfect refreshment. My sister had the dagwood sandwich with Moreton's homemade chips--super delicious...but also a bit large, so she took half the sandwich home!
A great place for lunch!

A step up at USC
It was a first visit. Difficult to find because there isn't much campus restaurant signage. The people we asked for directions were very helpful.
I would recommend it for people who want something more than fast food on the USC campus.
There is a variety of creative offerings. Couldn't try them all.

Great for any occasion
I attended with a business associate and some clients for a celebratory lunch. I was very impressed with my overall experience there. The space is very nice well designed and the service was excellent. Everyone was very impressed by the food and drink that they ordered. We were too full to sample their dessert menu. I recommend it for any occasion.

Escape at USC
High-end lunch-break at college? You bet! I always sit on the fig-tree-draped patio - smack in the middle of the SC campus - and forget where I am and that I have anything else to do but relax and enjoy a to-die-for Bacon & Burrata sandwich, a lovely fresh salad and an excellent glass of wine. Parking takes time and planning, but it's free if you tell them at the kiosk going in, and show your receipt going out.

Lovely ambiance on USC campus
The best spot right around USC for a casual lunch. Faculty, students, parents and others. Outside is under two majestic Moreton fig trees (like banyans) - giant and provide full shade. Set amongst the older architecture of the campus. Can watch the hustle of campus while being set apart from it just enough. Pricey but very good. Burgers and salads are excellent. Also great for the happy hour time period - relaxing in the earliest of the evening.

Great for pre game eating @ USC
They take reservations, food is great and a friendly staff. Service on the slow side. Simple menu with limited choices but very upscale. Burgers...chicken, beef, and veggie. Salads, etc. Best french fries!
Right on the USC Campus so great to walk around or go to the Book Store before a football game.

Great for USC Eating
If you need a place for guests while at USC, then this is it. With a bar, an outdoor seating area, and very attentive help, you can have your delicious food (I had a great Caesar Salad) stress free and out if the roar if the student food areas.

Great for meeting up w/USC friends
We are on campus 2-3 times a week for work, sometimes more, and didn't even know this place existed until about a month ago, when someone we work with walked us over for Friday after-hours drinks... it has become a weekly thing for us. The food is really good and the mixed drinks are awesome... Game day is tricky because they are so busy & we got the last 2 Trojan Mary's (sold out of them for game day brunch by 11 am), which is part of the reason we made reservations there... But we made do w/ our usual favorites for the next round. I'm sure I would give them higher scores on a normal day.

I Give Five Figs
The entire dining experience for the the last two home games has been terrific. I love the fig tree and the outside. The bar and the inside are inviting, too. I enjoyed both the caesar salad and bleu cheeseburger. The Gainey Chardonnay was excellent. Your staff is the best! Your main hostess was friendly and professional (I don't know her name). There are three staff members whose names I do know and they should be praised for their excellent service. They are Cornell, Robbie and Lisa. All were professional, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, witty, fun and added greatly to the dining experience. All three should be given raises immediately!!! I will definitely be returning with fellow-fans in the future! Fight On!

Located in the middle of USC's Campus, this restaurant is very convenient to have dinner with your USC student. The entree selection is small (about 6) but they have quite a few appetizers and side dishes.

It was during USC homecoming, so service was slow, even though the restaurant was not full. Nice variety of dishes on the menu.

Food was well prepared (smoked salmon). The waitstaff could have saved everyone time by letting us know the specials ahead of time. As this was a business lunch, the waitstaff was efficient and stayed in "the background" giving us time to talk. At first, we felt it was a bit "too loud", but we managed to get through our business without any interruptions. I guess we were wrong because all of us felt we got out points across, had a great meal and finished in the allotted time. Excellent ambiance and decor. Impressive for guests.
