Server wasn’t really friendly , I saw her reaction when I asked another server for what I asked her … regardless we gave her a 20% tip . But we definitely felt rushed . Food was tasty . The location is beautiful!

All the reviews I have read were right. This restaurant is a charm. Sitting outside with the heat lamps on was cozy. We all said we couldn’t believe we were in Morristown - it felt like we were transported to somewhere in Europe. The food was yummy and our waitress had a great sense humor which just added to the experience. Loved the avocado ganoush. We all are something different (chicken shish, bronzini, lamb chops and lamb special)
Can’t wait to go again.

Outdoor space is absolutely beautiful. Service was top notch - our server, Sue, was awesome. Food was delicious. We ordered the lentil soup, eggplant medley and beet/goat cheese to start. For entrees we had chicken shish and the lamb special. Both were extremely tasty and unique. We will definitely return.

Atmosphere is great. Food is mediocre. For the price, they need to make improvements.

We had the fig salad which was oddly sweet and drenched in a cinnamon dressing.

Falafel were hard and dry

Meatballs were overcooked.

That said - the outdoor patio area is magical, byob is great and our server was lovely.

The garden patio area is lovely. We requested to be moved inside because it began to rain suddenly. Unfortunately the inside experience was much different. The windows weren’t open and the blinds were down, so it seemed enclosed and dim. The noise travels, so a large crowd of women enjoying some kind of gathering overshadowed our entire brunch. They were extremely loud and at one point we’re singing aloud as a group. The service was incredibly slow. I did feel bad for the staff, because they seemed torn in multiple directions because of the sudden change in weather, but still we waited for far too long for coffee, food orders, refills, and the check. The food was delicious, but the mezzes were much better than the egg dishes. Extremely small servings of home fries (I had about 6 pieces of potato in total) and the side salad on the same plate was warm. By contrast the avocado ganoush and eggplant dish and warm pita were excellent. I’m willing to try again and write this off as an off day.

We had an awesome night at Fig & Lily for our anniversary. The staff was kind and the ambience was fabulous, especially during COVID as it is all outdoor seating!
Thank you for bringing us the nice Anniversary Figs for dessert! A nice touch!

Beautiful location. Good food. COVID level service that should be expected in this climate. Waiter was great. Everyone else is clearly inexperienced and food coming out of the kitchen super slowly. But it was a beautiful day and the outdoor courtyard is awesome. Good music. Just expect the COVID frustration that you find anywhere.

The ambience was great but the food was truly disappointing. Never knew a branzino could taste so bad. The fig salad was overdressed , soggy and very sweet - tasted weird ! Thankfully they served the shrimps separately and they were grilled well .
The only dish in the meal we liked was the fried calamari .
I wish the food could match the ambience !

Food was so good but the service was extremely slow. Waited close to an hour for our appetizers (that was only the garden platter), our entrees came out quickly after and then we were rushed out at the end. A 1.5 hour dinner turned into 3

Sat outside with a party of 8 on a perfect fall evening. The patio is so pretty with super large orange umbrellas that kept us dry from a little drizzle. Food excellent as always! Group shared appetizers and each ordered a main course. Four people in our group had never dined there before and were impressed with menu and quality of the food.

Fig & Lily was recommended by a friend so we expected it to be very good.
Exceeded those expectations in all categories.
Just to set expectations on pricing, be prepared to spend as it charges NYC prices.
We knew that going in, but others may not

I came to Fig & Lily Garden to celebrate my 35th birthday and I had a fantastic time. Our waiter was so kind and very patient with my party. Food was good. Highly recommend the octopus and polenta….extremely flavorful! The music is more of a piano lounge vibe which I was surprised by and not really a fan of. The decor, both interior and exterior, is gorgeous. Overall, a great dining experience.

Good Mediterranean food. The 'Garden' was a nice place to eat (we had a beautiful evening to dine). Service was slow, but that may be intentional, as they want you to enjoy the ambiance of the eating experience. Our first time there, and would go back.

I absolutely will be back. Lovely outdoor ambiance, classy but not pretentious. The staff is very accommodating and also attentive. The only reason I gave 4 stars vrs 5 is the apps lacked a bit of flavor. Calamari, Falafel, etc were not seasoned...

I had the luncheon version of steak and linguine - the steak was tough and overdone. The service was mediocre at best. I had been there before and the food was much better but was disappointed in this visit.

We had dinner outside on a Sunday evening; the setting was soothing, with quiet classical music and tasteful lighting.
Service was superb, with George, the manager always attentive.
The food was excellent; I would call it gourmet Mediterranean with tender beef and lamb, delicious eggplant dishes, and marinated chicken that just melted in my mouth!
The Baclava was to die for ( you just have to order it!); I would give 5 stars to all the appetizers and entrees.
A little pricey, but an oasis of fine dining in downtown Morristown .
(they have heating lamps and shawls for a cool evening; a nice touch)

It was our first time at this restaurant. We ate in the garden and the weather was perfect. The menu has a lot of interesting items and the two appetizers and two entrees we had were delicious. The service was also good. and the prices were reasonable. The only reason I can't give this 5 stars is the entertainment. I am 69 years old and I found the "lounge singer" doing Sinatra and other really old tunes to be too old fashioned. The music that was on speakers before the singer started was fine, as it was background, but this singer strolled through the tables, making him difficult to ignore. The restaurant would be better off with the singer.
