Figs Wood Fired Bistro crafts inventive contemporary American cuisine with global influence, in its warm and relaxing eatery in Sandy Hook. For starters, small plates, such as the brussel sprouts with balsamic reduction and a drizzle of honey and the old school meatballs with shaved pecorino cheese make excellent appetizers. Some of Figs Wood Fired Bistro's house specialty entrees include the spice crusted pork chops and maple glazed salmon and Madison Avenue Eggplant. You can't leave without the famous original brick oven Fig Pizza with fig puree, gorgonzola, mozzarella topped with fresh arugula salad, walnuts and fig balsamic. You can't go wrong with the popular Southern Comfort Chicken Sandwich served alongside homemade mac n cheese. Desserts are all homemade and vary each week but if you are lucky you will snag a slice of the lemon coconut cake.

    My lobster roll was ok. Kaiser roll didn’t it justice. My husband had the tuna which was hard to cut which should be if it’s a good cut. Our server was on her first night and it was challenging to say the least. Probably won’t go back

    Food was very good. Service was good but towards the end they were very busy so paying our check was slow. We ate outside and the road noise was occasionaly loud otherwise very nice.

    Truly a wonderful restaurant but the reservation system and consistency if service need some improvement. We had a reservation for an inside table and were offered an outside table initially and then ended up at a high top in the bar. Not our ideal scenario and not what we signed up for. I think the restaurant is short staffed which explains some of the lack of attention to detail, long wait for drinks and requests for other items. Mask use by staff was intermittent and questionable at best. On the constructive comment front: if you do not have an item or a wine why not remove or iodate the electronic menu in real time. Over a three week period you have been out of a decent Chardonnay- so why put people through the disappointment of planning an entree based on the wine list? Some upscale wines by the glass would be a welcome addition. Think old vine zins 🍷 Please get better as we love the food and location!

    Figs never disappoints!! Food is consistently delicious. Ordered the Korean beef taco special and it was the best taco I’ve ever had - and I eat a lot of tacos. And the fig pizza is still to die for. Great service - seated right away and food arrived quickly and with smiles. Can’t get enough of this place!

    Waitress was very nice and patient with me and my guest because we hadn’t seen each other in six months we just kept talking and didn’t order. Was polite told us to take her time. Food was delicious and service was great we ended up being the last people in the restaurant still talking at 10 o’clock and they still were saying no problem so on that note I’d say give them a try great food great service and very nice people

    The food was great. The server was friendly. We sat outside because of covid and the only thing that truly detracted from the experience was the noise level. I would recommend they construct some sort of noise barrier between the street and patio.

    I hope it was not the norm but the service was horrible and the appetizer was sent back and, something I have never seen before, was sent back to the table with the excuse it was the fault of the waitress. So yes it was sent back with a few bites gone and incomplete because of the waitress. Dinner was good but the experience was horrible.

    Ate here in past several time indoors and usually had a good meal and good time. This time ate outside, street is very busy, noisy. They wanted us to look at the menu on our phones. Had to insist on hard copy menus. No hard copy drink menu. Brussel sprouts were raw. Spring rolls all fried little filling. Ahi tuna was ok, pesto cod was a bit over cooked, tasted like jarred tomato and pesto sauces. Began to rain and server never came to take check. Had to go inside, no pen given so couldn't give tip. Very disappointing.

    Our waitress, a young lady with short blond hair, was the best we've ever had! She was attentive without being overbearing. And, as we were leaving, she even told us to be careful driving because it had started raining.

    The table was unstable. Had to ask the waitress twice for something to steady it. Asked the waitress twice for napkins, never got them. Ask the waitress for a receipt, never got it. The outdoor area is along the street and is extremely noisy from the cars. Food tasted okay except at 1:00 am several people in our party felt sick to their stomach. Was given a device to pay at the table and had to calculate the tip while the waitress stood over us. Will not be returning.
