NEVER TRUST A ROUND PIZZA!

Figs Pizza is most likely like no other pizza you’ve ever had. Don’t be surprised by the large freeform shape—its specifically part of what will go into your overall experience in enjoying this unique meal.

The crust will be so crisp and thin it will be close to brittle. That finely crisped quality is achieved by the special technique used in making the dough and a short cooking time at a very high temperature. The toppings are the finest freshest available and are, as often as possible local produce and other ingredients.

A distinctive quality of a Figs Pizza is that it will cool down quickly. If you take a pizza with you please follow the directions provided by the restaurant when heating it again at home.

    Incredibly disappointing- having eaten here in Charles St and in Figs Charlestown restaurant over the years we were looking forward to this. Unfortunately it was the worst dining experience I have had in years and sent the food back largely uneaten. Got charged the full bill plus tip without any apology or gesture from the restaurant. The service was slow. They were clearly understaffed. It felt like a bit of a rip off TBH. Pity we always had enjoyed Figs in the past.

    Arrived on time and was told the pizza oven wasn’t working and they had a limited menu otherwise. We went next door, annoyed that we weren’t messaged ahead of time or called.

    Figs is not bad. That's the problem. It's also not really great anymore. Understanding this is a casual place, the pizza and pasta creations, while fine, seem stale. The bolognese is a real ragu (nice), but then mired by inexplicable white sauce all over? The eponymous fig and prosciutto pizza was innovate when Todd English opened this casual Beacon Hill outpost, but today is a boring and fairly dry pizza that is, again, just 'fine. It's a nice stop on the way to the Common, and service was really nice (though as everywhere these days, understaffed). A destination Figs is however not, and I wouldn't go back unless especially convenient, for a lunch snack.

    Calamari was the best item ordered. Crisp, light with a little spice and a great sauce. Everything else was a sub par experience. Eggplant parm was soggy and flavorless, I have never had fried eggplant with zero taste. The tomato sauce was soupy, the veggies were undercooked and the cheese on top was not heated all the way to create a nice crisp topping. Sausage fennel pizza was large in size, but was nothing special in taste. Sausage didnt have flavor, dollups of goat cheese mixed in just weighed donw the crust. Side of Meatballs were just balls of meat with little cheese, parsley,breadcrumbs to make up a good meatball, again swrved with soupy red sauce and uncooled cheese on top. The group also ordered mussels, which I did not try, but at least half were left uneaten. Overall, a bland dining experience that was unremarkable. Also, the restaurant is VERY small. Extremely limited seating.

    Was visiting Boston, and this was at the top of our list. Had a reservation, but when we arrived, we were greeted by someone who did not speak any English, and it took us a moment to realize he was telling us to leave. After waiting outside of the restaurant for 20 minutes, another employee came out and told us they had no chef today, but they were “working on it”. When we asked why we hadn’t been informed in advance, his response was “ I only work here one day a week, I have no idea”. Completely unprofessional and disappointing. We left.

    We only ate half our pizza there was 4 slices left and when they boxed it up they only gave us one slice? Not sure if that’s their policy but it’s so rude considering we paid for the entire pizza!

    Great spot to grab pizza in Beacon Hill. Figs is super casual and very small, but nonetheless, they have great finds in the menu. I strongly recommend the Calamari as an appetizer and any of the pizza on the menu is a great choice. Downside; waitstff is slightly pushy to get tables turned.

    Overall we had a great experience. We always order takeout but this was our first time dining inside. The asparagus fritters are delicious. We ordered the eggplant and mushroom pizzas. Both were good. Service is a little slow but I actually like that they give you the time to enjoy your meal and don’t rush you. I’ve read a few reviews about people saying they arrived at the restaurant and were told they were closed and the oven was not working. Funny enough I saw it happen as we were about to leave at 9pm. A couple walked in and wanted a table and were told they’re closed. Clearly they were open haha. Then the host said they couldn’t seat them because their oven was broken. I found that comment odd as I could clearly see a pizza being made in the oven, and orders were coming out. Not sure what’s going on there but worth it to check and see if they’re open the next time you want to dine there.

    We came at the time of our reservation and we’re told that the restaurant is closed! They said that they had an emergency in the kitchen and had to close. Asked for a later reservation they said they can’t give us one.

    Stopped in for dinner after a long day of Sunday errands and had the most pleasant evening. Our waiter, who was serving the entire restaurant, was fabulous. He was attentive even though he was slammed and had great recommendations. Would love to come back and have him as our server again! Thanks for a great end to a crazy day! Ps - get the bead pudding!!!

    Food was fantastic and reasonably priced, given its quality and location. Service was excellent. The only downside was the room, which was very cramped and lacked any real character or warmth. We were seated at a high-top, which was crowded by a case of some type of building material and a stack of pizza boxes, and was in the path of traffic for the wait staff and diners wishing to use the bathroom.

    Food was EXCELLENT. Service was completely lack luster. Barely came over to the table, one of the kids meals (chicken tenders) was served 15 minutes after the rest. Nothing makes for a happy 8 year old like one not getting food when they are hungry. Soup was served without a spoon to eat it and despite there being at least three staff clearly talking to each other and not doing anything, could not get their attention for more than 10 minutes. Als asked for more bread and was told it was in the oven. But it never came. Too bad, like I said food was top notch….service just needs work!

    My first time here. Was dying for the Fig Pizza. Ordered that and Bolognese and calamari. Calamari was excellent. Bolognese had a white cream sauce on the pasta and Bolognese beside it - very heavy. Pizza ok - maybe too much balsamic. Waiter forgot my order for 2nd glass of wine. Really cute place. But I am not sure I would go back.

    It seems like Fig's has gone downhill over the last couple of years. The pizza we has was fine but nothing special. The bread was served cold. The bathrooms were messy. The service was quick and probably the highlight of the experience. I don't think I'd go out of my way to come here again.

    I have been to Figs several times and normally it has been outstanding. I had made a reservation for my family but upon arriving, waited several minutes (like 10) before anyone even acknowledged us. We were going to be seated at a high top which would have been very uncomfortable for 4 adults. We were moved to a table when one became available. Reservation was made over a week in advance so I feel a table should have been set aside. Once we were seated it took a while for someone to take a drink order but after that the service was fine. Food was very good but one of the pizza's was definitely burnt. We were starved so we ate it anyways. Overall we enjoyed the evening but it's been better in the past.

    We used to dine in here regularly when in town. The entire place has changed significantly in a downward trend.The restaurant was totally empty but The server was confused as to her job. She did not speak english. She did not know how to take our order . She had to be summoned each time we needed her and was in the back sitting with bar tender in their phones . The pizza was on a totally undercooked crust despite there being only one other table . The pizza baker had his head down on the counter with nothing to do . Not sure how or why he half baked the pizza. It was all vary sad as this used to he our favorite spot . .

    Everything was great other than the three young women and older gentleman seated next to us. The rest of the patrons all kept turning to look whenever the one girl whose voice was a cross between a chainsaw and a 747 on takeoff started yelling which was often. One nice lady even asked them to tss as or their decibel level down so others could converses too but it didn’t help. It’s unfortunate when inconsiderate diners feel the need to fill a small space with only their voice. The three at our table all stopped talking several times because we simply couldn’t hear each other. Lowest common denominator wins.
