We had an amazing brunch in an igloo. We were concerned about being cold since it was 15degreea outside, but they had preheated the igloo and it was toasty!! The food was fabulous and our server was sweet and attentive. Highly recommend this restaurant and experience.

We had an absolutely wonderful time dining in the outdoor igloo. Ambiance, food and service were all outstanding! Servers also masked and gloved inside the igloo and we felt very safe. And the heater kept the igloo toasty!

Reserved on line, gave option for indoor or patio seating. Picked indoor, got there and said indoor closed and they stuck us in an outdoor igloo. Wait staff did their best. One of the two heaters stopped working and the condensation dripping on us and table got to be annoying. This is how dining is in this environment ( covid). Experience could of been a lot worse, but went with the flow and enjoyed a solid meal.

We love the heated igloo! This was our second time. It was warm and inviting and very private. The temperature was in the 20;s and we were very comfortable, even had to turn the portable heaters down. The price fixe menu was generous with many choices and the portions were quite large. The wait staff was very attentive but not to the point where we felt they were hovering- they respected our privacy.
All in all, a great experience and we look forward to returning.

I’m constantly underwhelmed by Fig & Lilly. The ambiance of the outdoor dining through all of the seasons, is really the only saving grace of this spot. Every time I’ve eaten here the food has been subpar in flavor and quality. The servers are kind.

I had stated our dietary restrictions before ordering, and somehow it was missed when it came to receiving my dish. I don’t do dairy and had asked twice if my dish could be made without. A slight error, but it did show up with dairy on it. It was quickly fixed.

I understand the financial challenges of the pandemic the last two years as well as supply chain issues and low profit margins for restaurants, but some up charges outside of their prefix menu are just a little absurd. $9 for a tea and $6 for an orange juice is a little egregious. Again, the quality is just not there to justify recommending this to anyone or even returning.

New Year’s Eve was phenomenal! The food was delicious. Service was on point & very attentive. My boyfriend eats meat & I’m a vegetarian. Many times one of us is underwhelmed with the food. Both the meat & non-meat options were remarkable. The igloos were cute, cozy & let us eat socially distanced from other diners. Would highly recommend!

The food was unforgettable.
However the service was super rushed. Made us feel that they want us out as quickly as possible. We have not finished the appetizers they already brought the main dish.
Overall they rushed us to finish in less than 45 mins...!

The service was not great- one meal came out significantly later than the rest, and things were forgotten. We waited a long time for our food. The food was good, but not amazing.

Food was fair
Great sitting in the igloo
They made a mistake w one of the entrees and corrected
But still charged
Also charged 25% gratuity for party of 5
Ended up giving more since it was a holiday, but was unhappy that they didn’t say anything up front

Food was excellent. Our waitress was great. We would have felt a little safer if all the staff coming into the igloo wore masks, especially during this Covid surge. Otherwise everything was perfect. Happy holidays!

We had lunch in the outdoor igloos. The setup.was very cute, comfortable and enjoyable (once they swapped one that was mafunctioning) malfunctioning. I wish we could say positive things about the food. For the most part it was something you would get from a fast food platter place for 5 times the cost. Food was very uninspired and sometimes downright bad. Disappointed as the setting was very nice. Will not be back.

We had dinner in their outdoor igloo. It was a wonderful experience. The igloos are warm and cozy and they have blankets too in case you want extra warmth. You have to do the pre fixe igloo menu when doing the igloo, but the price was reasonable. $65 per person and you get an app, entree and dessert per person and it is BYOB. Service was amazing. Food was EXCELLENT!! Get the penne tenderloin and filet mignon, you won't be disappointed.

We have been here before for tapas. We liked it. Never an issue. Apparently now they have a policy that every person needs to order an "entree". We were a party of 2. We ordered FIVE appetizers and very clearly told the waitress we would start with these and order more as we went along. She should have told us about the entree policy at this point and did not. The apps/tappas we ordered would have totalled more than 2 entrees. Instead we were told that we either needed to order 2 entrees (after finishing 5 apps between 2 people and about to order more) or we would be charged $10 per person. Per our waitress, we had to speak to a "manager" who told us the waitresses would make no money if we didn't order entrees. He said we should pay up and leave and not come back. Um ok dum dum, the total we spent on the tappas was as much or more than 2 entrees. We were there at 5:30 and the place was EMPTY. When we left at 7 the place was 3/4 empty. We would have been the perfect regulars for you. We live right down the street. Now you have a 1 star review, we will tell everyone we know what happened and we will never be back.
Nice job.
