What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.7

FIG is an all-around solid restaurant but that Happy Hour of theirs is the best on the Westside.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

One of our all time favorite LA restaurants. Been going for past 8 years. Service is top notch, friendly and professional. Food is always superb. Happy hour is fun and great value!

Overall a lovely dining experience. A bit wonky with our food delivery. Appetizers of olives and a three cheese board were not brought out at the same time. A solid, tasty dinner! Hangar steak prepared to perfection and dessert of deconstructed tiramisu was visually stunning and delectable! Will certainly go back again.

Enjoyed everything but the noise level. It was just too loud to hear easily. Next time I'll ask to eat outside near a heat lamp if necessary.

Service & ambiance is top-notch, however I found the food to be mediocre. We came for dinner & ordered the bread balloon (best part of the meal), warm olives (decent), grilled broccoli (lacked flavor), and Margherita pizza (decent). Maybe I need to try their brunch & Eric's Specialties the next time.

The food and service were fabulous. The balloon bread was fun and delicious. My entree, lamb chops, were cooked perfectly. It was noisy but we could still converse. I think it reflects the general atmosphere. I would go again and recommend without hesitation.

Took my Aunt for a special birthday and we like to meet here occasionally for lunch. Our server, Katie was a delight! Very caring and great at checking to make sure we fine.
I had asked for a window table overlooking the pool area and it was just right. It does get noisy in there during lunch hour but we hung out after the main crowd left.

The food and service was great. I specifically asked for a corner or quieter table, the restaurant ignored it and put us in the middle of everything. It was a business meeting and we had to keep repeating ourselves because we couldn’t hear each other. I was very disappointed that they didn’t honor my request.

We had a reservation and waited at the bar to be seated. They let us know our table was ready so we settled our bill and waited to be moved. It took two of us letting the hostess know we were ready and fifteen minutes later they sat us at a table that had been empty the whole time. The food was incredible and made up for our poor service.

WOW! First, the food... everything was first-rate from the marinated feta to the beets to the perfectly cooked scallops with Israeli couscous. What a bargain during their 5-6 pm happy hour - we read that it is the best on the Westside and it is true! Second, the service - perfect!
The only drawback was the noise level - we had to agree not to speak as we could not hear each other, but the food was worth it!

Six of us had a breakfast reservation and we requested a nice table with a view. We could see the outside pool area and it was lovely. Noise level buzzy but not too high. All of us ended us with the mushroom scramble, a house specialty and it was very good.
Service was excellent and waiter brought a muffin with a candle in honor of the birthday girl. Would recommend!

We enjoyed our meal at Fig, but the noise level was not conducive to conversation. Good food and drinks though. My seared scallops with couscous was delicious; my husband said his hangar steak was good, not outstanding though. The grilled halloumi salad was wonderful and more than adequate for four of us to share.

You must do something about the sound level. The table near us was so loud we could not even hear each other. The food selection was limited and most was too spicy. We all agreed we would not be returning

The always outstanding Fig---food is 100% wonderful at each meal....we had just been here less than a week prior but found that one of our favorites-- something called a bread balloon, we not served at brunch on Sundays!==so we came back on Friday just to have lunch and be sure we could get the bread balloon as an appetizer.
Chicken Schwarma wrap is excellent as well!

The servers all seemed annoyed. They stuffed us in the worst table possible because we apparently didn’t seem cool or wealthy enough to be there. The food was bad, and my partner and I both got sick. That’s the last time I give them a chance.

Always consistent and superb food- sometimes service might be a bit off-- crowded mostly as it is just that good. IN a terrific area for a stroll before or after any meal...
Have had breakfasts, lunches and dinners here over the years and each meal always very good!!

Went with a client and had asked for a specific area to be sat but they didn’t accommodate. I feel the hostesses don’t care about where people are sat which is super annoying when I specifically make requests. Not the first time at this restaurant btw. Service at the table was food but our waiter was quite somber and wasn’t sure if he was mad or sad the whole time. Food was copious, very good and we ordered way too much! Took a doggy bag home. Desert was yummy!
