Unfortunately there is a tv over the bar which is probably good for the bar but not so good for the ambience

Took about 15 min to get drink menus yesterday at brunch. And when we asked for them, we were given a blank stare, as if we asked for the most outrageous thing. Food is mediocre to good for brunch.

Average brunch. Omelette lacked finesse; big chunks of ham and mushrooms, slightly over cooked, and extremely under-seasoned. Lovely decor, perfectly good service.

Love the food. Service was great...until our bill came. I was charged mandatory 18% for adding my 7 yr old boy as the 7th person making it a large party. The 18% was computed on the original regular menu price! ."Not on the happy hour prices we dined on! How unfair was that!

The staff at Fig were very accommodating and had seated us in a quiet area as I requested for my birthday. Hugh our server was lovely. Very happy friendly staff. We will be back sooner than a Birthday. Fabulous food. You can’t go wrong here!!!
We were so full from dinner that I insisted that we not order dessert but Hugh brought out chocolate chip cookies and a candle to celebrate my birthday.
Thoughtful and nice way to end our evening.

Service was exceptionally slow. The two fish options were good; the vegetable pasta lacked flavour. Had high expectations for a restaurant located in a Fairmont hotel, so was sadly disappointed.

I was in LA visiting family and decided to head to Santa Monica for a day. Wanted a nice place to eat off the pier, but still casual enough to wear casual beach-wear. FIG was the perfect solution! The food was delicious, seasonal, and fresh (they source their produce from a local farmer's market) and every dish that came out was better than the last. We were greeted by the manager as soon as we sat down and she made us feel so welcome and special.

My only reason for not giving them 5 stars across the board was the slow service. After the manager greeted us, it took our server 10-15 minutes to take our drink order. Another 30 minutes to get our drinks, then another 30 minutes until he took our dinner order. Never checked on us after our food was received and forgot to put our drinks on our tab. Instead of comping us for his mistake, he went back and charged the card again. He may have been having a bad night, though, as the rest of the staff seemed much more engaging with their tables.

I love the Fig! The food is great and the service is incredible. I accidentally booked my reservation at 7:30 am instead of pm for my 20 year wedding anniversay. When I called that day, they made sure to get us in. Dinner was wonderful, as usual!!!

The food was great but the service was some of the worst I've ever had. Our server was attentive at first but then disappeared for almost an hour. I actually had to ask another server to find him not once but twice. It was also extremely noisy.

My boyfriend and I went for our two year anniversary and it was perfect :) The atmosphere was lively, romantic and beautiful. There are old fashioned lights and plants that make it feel European almost. The food was amazing and creative. All the staff were friendly and did a terrific job (unfinished plates sat for less than a minute). We’ll definitely go again! Found another LA gem!

Great setting for Sunday Brunch! We hosted our daughter's wedding at the hotel, so I'm a huge fan of the Fairmont. It's a lovely spot to have lunch, brunch or dinner. Food is delicious, though my steel cut oatmeal arrived cold and I had to send back. Service was great. We got lucky with a table overlooking the pool and the weather was lovely. I've had dinner and it's always terrific.

Went there for Sunday breakfast, make a reservation they get a line. The food was fantastic. The Lemon Ricotta Pancakes were just amazing, not too much lemon and the blueberry butter was just the perfect accompaniment. Their beef hash with sunny up eggs was so good I wanted to finish every bite but just too much on the plate. I really didn't think the food was over priced for the quality and quantity.
