Fabulous menu & wonderful ambiance
So happy to find Figs! We always enjoyed Olives when we lived in Boston, and this gem of a restaraunt is a blend of both Figs and Olives. Menu is so wonderful that we all had a really tough time choosing what to order. Tasted everyone's dishes, and all four were superb. Service was professional, unobtrusive, but pleasant. Housed in an very old house set back from the hustle and bustle of Main Street. Charming, delicious, exceeded all of our expectations. We will be back to dine there next week!

Quaint, pretty restaurant!
We selected this restaurant based on past experience with other Figs that we liked (Wellesley and Beacon Hill) as well as Olives in Charlestown. We had a very good dinner with very good service - but what I loved most was the building and rooms themselves - it's an old house on a quiet side street in town - several small but quaint rooms with only a few tables in each. Candles everywhere, low beamed ceilings, fireplaces, etc. Would definitively recommend and would definitely come back.

Food was delicious, and very much appreciated pizza and pasta options for our kids (ages 6 & 9). Adorable venue, great service, fantastic food. We will be back!

The waitress rushed the 5 of us. When we asked for a bottle of white wine, she could not accommodate us and said they only served Italian wine. When we gave her several Italian wines, she said she did not have those. So, we asked for a wine list. Instead she poured our glasses with the house white, never brought us a bottle or refills.
She rushed us through the rest of the meal!
The food was fantastic as usual, and we had a laugh over the antics of this waitress. ( who, by the way, has served us before, and was just fine the first time!)

Figs was one of my favorite dinners in Nantucket. A nice change to all the seafood, my husband and I both ordered pasta and it was amazing! Perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, we both stuffed ourselves til we couldn't move because we couldn't let even one bite go to waste! We also got beet salad which was way better than we had at another restaurant and the calamari was tender and had a delicious sauce on top. Oh and they kept brining us fresh warm focaccia that was to die for. For dessert, our waiter surprised us with white chocolate bread pudding which was beyond heavenly and big enough to share. I would definitely go back here the next time I'm on the island!

Close to Town ... A real GEM !
Great spot - Excellent menu - Family of 5 loved it !
The local fresh produce was fantastic... visit Bartlett to see it grow.
Entree choices created tough choices - All great.
Our kids can give noteworthy guidance to any foodie.
They loved it.
Great space - if you get some overly loud Giants fans at the next table just focus on the Sinatra tunes and relax
One more thing ....DUCK !

This place is a gem. Always great! Rob, the manager and head waiter, is one of the best waiters we have ever had. He makes the experience outstanding.

Out of the way
Quiet, out of the way find. The perfect spot for an intimate dinner. Food was great, I had a chicken dish that was delicious . I would certainly go back.

Atmosphere is quiet and lovely.
Atmosphere is quiet and lovely. Rob was an outstanding server. Salmon in the nicoise entree was over cooked and a little dry but all appetizers and halibut entree were exquisite. Recommend the beet salad also.

Spent a week on Nantucket and ate dinner out six nights. This was by far the best food, atmosphere, and service of any restaurant we visited on the island, truly an exceptional experience.

The candlelit tables gave the dining rooms a cozy and romantic feel. We dined with another couple in a booth tucked in a corner which gave way for a feeling of intimacy. We started with two pizzas as appetizers and both were delicious. Everyone enjoyed their entrees which consisted of Halibut, Chicken Milanese and Meatballs. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner for two or for a group of friends.

Many Nantucket restaurants
Many Nantucket restaurants have replaced their rustic, colonial atmospheres with a sleek, modern look and feel. Not here, though. The restaurant features dark wood and antique fixtures. We sat almost in the old hearth. The look is quaint and charming, the food, delicious. This is the place to go for romance -- no noisy bar to compete with your intimate conversation (Ask for the inside room, though, if you want the full experience.) The service was excellent, and the prices are reasonable by Nantucket standards. I checked "notable wine list," though I didn't actually look at it. With Tracy Root (formerly of Cioppino's) involved, though, it must be good. In season, it may be hard to reserve a good time (The restaurant is quite small.)

7 Lifelong friends from high school gathered at Figs to celebrate seven b-days Saturday night. We had phenominal service, a wondeful wine selection (we chose several Montrachets & Caymus) & 7 outstanding meals. The Scallops were lovely, the Lobster spaghetti or frav diavolo, was spicey but wonderful, fillet was cooked to perfection. Potenially a loud & demanding group the staff placed us in a room almost to ourselves & tended to our every need. After a week on the island eating out almost every night it was a great dining experience & a great wrap up to our week. The atmosphere is cozy and decor rustic: overall great evening
