There on a Friday evening and surprised it wasn’t busy. Despite this there was a delay in being greeted by staff and seated and service was relatively slow. Salmon was over cooked and lamb undercooked. We have eaten here before and this time was disappointed

We really love the food. However, the service is horrible. We waited over 10 mins before I waved someone to come to our table. The waiter apologized and said he was pulled from the bar to wait on tables. Saw several men in waitstaff outfits but not really doing much. Our waiter made our drinks and served them as well as bringing our food. He had too many jobs. We had to call him over to clear our plates. Then, we had to signal him we wanted to order desserts. We sat for 15 mins waiting for dessert. Had to catch our waiter when he left the bar area to ask for our desserts. So frustrating. A person came to our table to ask if everything was ok. Didn’t introduce himself. I saw him sitting at the table behind us for awhile. I asked if he was the manager and he said yes. I tried to explain that we love the food and have recommended this place to friends but if he wants his guests to return he needs to work on table service. He basically walked away with an attitude. He didn’t care what I was saying. But, he should of at least pretended to listen and say sorry. He needs to work on his management skills. Lastly, when we sat down, important to know we were only the fifth table and they couldn’t handle the load.

The food was good, but some of the dishes weren’t really to my liking. The spanakopita had a great flavor but very salty. Unfortunately the air didn’t seem to be working when we ate there so it was extremely hot through the entire meal on a 100 degree day.

We arrived, waited over an hour for an appetizer that never arrived. The drinks were sub par to say the least. After an hour we asked what the problem was And finally he came back saying the kitchen was slow but still without the humus. We said thank you but no thank you. Not worth the wait. Not coming back

Service was as bad as it could be.

The Bar era not stocked well.
Asked for Kettle One and Pinot Noir . Not Available.
Probably will not go back.

Food took over an hour to get to us but was very good.
They need trained Staff or they will never last.

Very enjoyable dinner and evening at Black Fig. We had an opentable reservation for 6:00pm on a Friday evening and were seated promptly. Surprisingly, the Restaurant was not busy at that time on that day. Our dishes were well prepared and our waiter was very nice. The bronzino was excellent, as was the Santorini dish.
Our only recommendation would be for the restaurant to hire a greeter (mait're de) with the sole job of checking people in, checking reservations and seating people at the appropriate available tables for the size of the party. Our initial impression upon entering the restaurant was not good, as we were greeted and seated by waiters or some others from the staff that were not trained to do this job. A bit more attention to a professional environment at this restaurant would go a long way to increasing business and making a good initial impression.

This was the 4th time I have been to the restaurant. The air conditioning was broken and I can get past that...the server I had, I cannot. He was MISSING IN ACTION most of my meal and when my friend needed an additional club soda, we had to ask another server to refill her drink.

Being that the air conditioning was broken, there should have been ice in the water to make sure that people stayed cool. I know the restaurant it owned by the chef and therefore, he should have an experienced front of house person to be able to handle all these details and allow him to be creative in his kitchen while the needs of his guests are being properly serviced. Just an observation!

This place was just OK. It was a hot summer day and it was warm inside. The beer on tap was warm. The grouper was very ‘fishy’...I have driven by it many times in the neighborhood so I wanted to give it a try but it doesn’t seem to be anything other than OK. Too many other options in the area to go back

Overall the food was good but would recommend Bronzino w/ a little bit of sauce over it or on the side as it was slightly dry. Appetizers-we got the assortments and it was delicious. We got 4 kinds of desserts that they had to offer on their menu and all were enjoyable. Service was good-our waiter-Greg was very attentive. Had a very nice time!

I was very disappointed with my whole experience here. The waitress was pretty bad. She never once asked how everything was doing, left our appetizer, dirty dish on the table through the whole meal, and was very inattentive. I had the lamb Gyro and the meet was extremely well done and pretty tasteless. My daughter had the osso bucco, which actually was very good, and we brought the unfinished portion home. I just cut all the way into it, to the bone, and found pink uncooked meat. Very just satisfied.

Father’s Day dinner.
We started with Dirty water glasses followed by Warm water. Like they just fill from the facet. There was a black board just above our table with nice seafood selection but non were available. Do u think it should have been erased? As 1 of the appy’s we ordered duck confit ( it was old, stale and gross) we sent it back not 1 person came over to apologize. They just took it back to the kitchen and avoided us the rest of the meal. I had asked to substitute a vegetable in place of potato, I was told no problem. They gave me sautéed broccoli rabe ( they use frozen vegetables) and up charged $3.00 without informing us.
Well I enough about the food.
Then came to our plates away, I was actually still eating next thing I know my plate was stacked on top another and off it went. Then they came over to ask about dessert my mother was still eating her main dish. I told them to let us finish our main course. We did not bother with anything else. Just wanted to get out. It’s a shame the decor was nice but very unprofessional staff and poor quality food.

A group of 4 people came in for dinner at 8pm ( closing is 9pm) and they were turned away. I guess they were the lucky ones...

Overall we enjoyed our dinner. Service was good but we had to ask if there were specials. Though we took it stride, one of the glasses did have lipstick on it. It was replaced promptly. Usually when ordering Saganaki it is flambéed at the table. Disappointed because the children at the table would have enjoyed that. Lamb shank was tasty but did have some dry pieces. Our Birthday celebration was nice with a sparkler on one of the desserts. Seafood was good over the orzo. We will go back.

Service was friendly and attentive but not very knowledgeable. Flatbread appetizer was very good. Main courses were good but not great. One chicken dish had to be sent back as the chicken was undercooked and still pink inside. When it came back it was better but not cooked through. Desserts were not very good. Baklava was tasty but tough to chew. The second dessert was supposed to have fresh fruit as part of it but they put almond shavings instead. Server pointed it out and apologized but didn’t know why. Overall, there are better choices in the area.

Our reservation was not honored.

We booked at 8:00 reservation through OpenTable for Mother's Day. We received confirmation by email and text. When we arrived, we were turned away and told that our reservation was for 7:00 -- even though we showed the email with the 8:00 time. Ended up with fast food for Mother's Day.

We were there for Mother's Day, but the restaurant was not that busy that the service issues we had were affected by the crowd. There is certain restaurant etiquette that is expected based on the restaurant and prices. This restaurant needs to teach it's servers the proper way to serve a table. Women should be addressed first from menu presentation to food presentation oldest to youngest. Since it was Mother's Day, the matron of the table should have been addressed first. Our server started with my son and worked his way around the table with my Mother's order taken last. Our appetizer of mussels did not come with a serving spoon. Instead of being alert to the needs of the table, we had to request more pita and water. Food runners did not know who got which dish when they came from the kitchen. One server reached across my wife to serve and push my food to me. My dish had mussels and clams in shells, but I was not given a shell plate. We had to request more drinks rather than being asked. It was about 10 minutes between plate removal and presentation of dessert menus. Our bill was presented timely, but no one even looked at the table to take payment. We had to ask a busperson to get someone to take our payment.

The food is above average and priced fairly. The restaurant accommodated my wife's food allergy by preparing dessert she could eat. this was our second visit and we had service issues both times. For this restaurant to get better reviews, service has to improve. I would go back for the food.

I’ve been to the Black Fig a few times before, and the food has always very good, as it was this past time. The prices for most dishes are moderate, with a few of them being pricy, and others being a great value. However, I ordered a scallops appetizer (special), which I found out cost $32, after I got home. There were 4 scallops, and the priciest seafood appetizer on the menu is octopus for $17. For me, $32 for 4 scallops is grossly overpriced, and a patron should be made aware if the special is nearly double the cost of the most expensive appetizer on the menu (there are only 2 entrees slightly more expensive than than $3). I called the restaurant to speak with a manager to let them know I was disappointed. He kindly offered to buy me a drink the next time I visit. I appreciate the offer,l and will likely go back, but I won’t order another special from here without first knowing the price.

The Black Fig is a phenomenal Greek/Mediterranean restaurant with an eclectic menu that will more than satisfy everyone’s taste buds. The wait staff was amazing. Very friendly and attentive to all your needs. Try one of their signature cocktails for a different type of alcoholic beverage. The Black Fig is here to stay and we’ll be back real soon.

Overall service and food were good but I won’t go back due to the noise level. It was so loud that I was almost shouting so my friend could hear me and we were at a small table for two. We left immediately after our coffee because we couldn’t take it anymore. My throat was sore when I got home. They should consider carpeting to help soften the noise level.

Need to make better use of the space. You’re cramming parties into the main dining area while two larger tables were empty the entire time we were there. Servers were bumping us trying to walk around tables. Found restaurant very noisy too. Food excellent. Parking tight. No more people/parties can park there. Get rid of some of the tables — you’ll never fill up.
