As always, everything at Fig and Lily was fabulous! Food - excellent; we have had many different entrees, as we're "regulars" and give a 5 star; the service (Sue and Esra greet us with "virtual" hugs) and everyone is extremely friendly; the ambiance is the best in Motown, as it's secluded in a charming patio (very European). We'll always return and honestly prefer it over all Motown restaurants. The Mediterranean cuisine is well prepared and if there is a problem with any order, they are quick to make it right. And parking is easy. Of course, we recommend it highly!

The patio is absolutely lovely. Plenty of heaters and blankets available if it gets chilly. Our waitress provided great recommendations and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back to dine on the patio again!

The service was very slow and not the best. We were sitting for 20 minutes until we flagged down the waitress. The food was good but nothing amazing, especially for the price. But the garden was pretty amazing and it was a great vibe in general.

Mother’s Day ode dix was definitely not worth it. The food didn’t warrant a 60/person incl kids cost. Plus the service was not up too Arnie you’re paying these prices. Not returning

Place was terrible. Service took way too long. My daughter was served raw chicken fingers… and only found out once she took a bite. My wife order two dishes and both were out. My son ordered pancakes and the suggested he order something else.

I told the manager this place was terrible and walked out without paying.

For a special day like Mother’s Day the highlight was going for ice cream afterwards!

Good food, especially loved the pita and spreads. Went on Mother’s Day so service was a little busy and seemed understaffed.

Overall nice find in Morristown for outdoor seating for a nice meal out! Server was great even though service getting seated was a little slow and chaotic.

Happy with the overall experience!

My family and I dined at Fig & Lily for Mother's Day and had very high hopes based on word of mouth. While the ambience was beautiful and relaxing, the food was disappointing and the service was absolutely terrible. The menu was prix fixe for the holiday and was incredibly overpriced for the quality and amount of food given. If it had not been for the stunning garden and perfect weather, I would have decided to leave. I imagine this restaurant is much better suited to an average night of dining but I think that they decided to capitalize on the event of Mother's Day by skimping and hastily preparing the food.

I found it odd that all of the servers were wearing headsets and the quality of service seemed worse. It almost was as if they were distracted by the headsets instead of using them as a way to improve efficiency. Anyway, the servers were inattentive, rude, and very very slow.

I would not recommend this restaurant during an event. I may decide to come one additional time for a regular dinner to compare.

Wanted to start off by saying THEY DO NOT HAVE THE OUTDOOR IGLOO SEATING ANYMORE. I would not have booked here if i had known we would have been uncovered with heaters far from our table and freezing. The food was mediocre and came out late, the service was bad and the waiter only came to the table when I called for them. I was overcharged after leaving the restaurant. Outdoor seating and ambiance is nice when it’s warm out but overall wouldn’t recommend.

This was our first experience at Fig & Lily Garden and we decided to dine there on Mother's Day weekend. It was busy and noisy since there was a large party in the back of the main dining area. The indoor dining area is small. They have an outdoor courtyard dining area set up. The ambiance is lovely and the food was excellent. BYOB.
I plan to return at some point. We had a great time.

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.

Food was delicious and the atmosphere was great....Something about eating outside in a place setting like that makes you feel you are in a different country. What I have to acknowledge that they were wonderful to our family with the table changes. It was a little chaotic but they did what they had to do to make us comfortable and for that I appreciate them and as the rest of the family said, we will be going back.

Celebrating my mother’s birthday in the igloo experience and had a great time! Our waitress was sweet and super attentive. We ordered a few appetizers to share and OMG the grape leaves- highly recommend! It was wonderful being out and feeling safe at the same time. Will be back

Food, atmosphere and service were fantastic! The only negative was that the tip was automatically included in the bill which I have never seen for a party of 4 and rather irritating after an otherwise wonderful evening.

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!
