It’s beautiful environment, decor and ambiance. Service was horrible. I was over charged. It was not worth what I spent. Staff look and act like they don’t care. I had to ask several times for my drinks. Good came out late. Just was not what I thought it would be.

Very nice outdoor garden seating for those who do not want to dine indoors (though indoor restaurant is very nice too). Excellent friendly & professional service. Great menu options for vegetarians!

Outdoor dining is a must with attentive service and creative menu choices to keep everyone in your party happy! Would come back again and not forget the bottle of wine at home.

Went to Fig & Lily because of the outdoor igloos. Wasn't sure I would enjoy eating in a bubble, but it was actually a good experience. It provided a private (sort of) environment for our party of 6, while still being able to enjoy the outside experience. Food and service were very good - the pita and mezze appetizer was awesome! and everyone enjoyed their entres.

Fig and Lily Garden was awesome, an unexpected find simply due to appropriate outdoor seating. It was amazing! Food was wonderful, all felt so fresh although it is definitely on the high end of pricing (by my standards). Only one waitress outside but she did her very best!
Definitely recommend

Menu is excellent with some unusual items. Octopus and polenta appetizer was very good, but I've had such octopus a little bit crispier with more char, that keeps it from being excellent. My bronzino was a bit dry, without the crispy skin I've had elsewhere. Server was very attentive. Covid preparation was excellent. I've been here before and I'll go again.

Visited Fig & Lily Garden for the first time and absolutely LOVED it!

The inviting ambiance, beautiful selection on the menu, and our server couldn’t do enough for us.

I will definitely be back - if for nothing else - the amazing ginger tea!

Lovely place, it can get very warm (but I like it). Food was great, was not too crazy about octopus but meatballs, mahamarra, the grape leaves were fantastic. Everyone enjoyed their food and the desserts were also a hit. Would definitely go back, might sit inside next time.

Amazing outdoor space with igloo. Service was outstanding, brunch was delish and Covid precautions were the best of any restaurant I’ve been to. Would definitely recommend. Avocado toast with poached egg, chicken sandwich with thinly sliced chicken cutlets were great. The pita bread was so good we ate a basket before the hummus even arrived...hummus was also extremely tasty as well. Very very good

The atomosphere and set up was great and service outstanding! I had high expectations of this restaurant and it was just okay. The food was a bit bland to my liking. I had the octopus with polenta-the polenta was cooked perfectly but the octopus was tough. The lamb was done well but the shrimp casserole was too overwhelming. The chocolate souflee was excellent though...not sure if I would come back here.

We arrived late due to Uber issues and they accommodated without any issue. The table wasn’t prepared so there was a bit of reorganization. The food was very good and the service while good was distant. The outdoor dining area is very nice.

Outdoor seating was pleasant. Felt so rushed the moment we sat down, asked about water, corked our wine, opened menu on App & came back in 3 min to ask for our order. Staff was very accommodating but trained to move things along! I ordered branzino, had skin on & was a little oily taste, delicious veggies.

This was our first visit. I'm not sure how we've never been here before. The food was outstanding (including the lamb chops, shrimp casserole, hummus, zucchini cakes and much more). Our waitress was lovely. Our only beef (and we know its covid times) was that they add a gratuity on the itemized bill and then they also have a "suggested gratuity" chart on the copy that you sign. If you didn't look at the itemization, you might not know you've already tipped. I understand that restaurants are having hardships. We were prepared to give a 30-40 percent tip. Our problem is that the way it is done is very shady. They need to make it clear that there is gratuity included and then give you a space to add if preferred. Trickery leaves a bad taste.

We were so happy to dine in a safe environment! Food was delicious, service was excellent and having our private igloo was “icing on the cake”! Outdoors, yet not! Just a perfect evening. Fig & Lily Garden has the best outdoor dining anywhere! Thank you!

Cute outdoor spot. It was too hot to sit in the domes outside, so we opted for the open tables outside. The server wouldn’t open their umbrella for us to sit under. The food was great especially the prefix lunch. The service was not good at all. The lady was rude and didn’t pour our wine (it’s BYOB) or serve us water or anything. She acted like she didn’t want to be doing her job. It ruined the experience for us. Also after sitting in the sun for 2 hours, we opened the umbrella ourselves to get the shade. We don’t understand why she said she couldn’t do it and that it’s too hard to open or move?

Our waitress Selma was great! She checked in on us at the right times and was kind and professional.

Best of all we told her about my gf’s birthday and wanted to reserve a table for 8 there, and normally you would call them to make that reservation, but she took care of it for us.

They also clean thoroughly and the plates and utensils come wrapped in a bag, assuring it’s cleanliness.

Great ambiance, great food, and Selma is a great waitress, I hope she’s our waitress for my gf’s birthday.

Food was excellent and I understand the fixed price brunch but would be nice to offer dessert options as an add-on also. The food choices were quite good.

Very COVID friendly with sealed place setting, paperless menu, buzzer for service etc but service was fair inattentive while there
