Food was delicious! Generous portions. Sat by the window with nice high floor view. Had not realized it was in a hotel. So ambience not anything special. But food was worth the trip!!

This restaurant is a case of 1 size fits none. Not quite Israeli, not quite modern middle eastern, just trying to be everything instead of doing something great. Exceptions were the service, which was really good, and the Morrocan donuts, which were exceptional.

I don’t know what their dinner is like but their brunch option is not worth it.

Everything tasted like it was pre-made and stored and then heated up when a customer ordered it. The seating was a joke. We sat on low couches and ate of tables that were even lower. I had to keel over the table to eat.

We were surprised to discover the location was on the 4th floor of a hotel, a fact not made clear in the blurb or website. It was very quiet, which was fine but made us suspicious. The service was welcoming if a bit inexperienced, but polite and efficient. The pre-fixe was worth the value. Drinks a tad overpriced considering the location. The apps (burrata & fried cauliflower) were surprisingly good, beautifully presented. The main courses were better than average (Moroccan chicken & salmon), the lavender ice cream was superb.

Nice place to go in a very crowded and noisy area of Manhattan. Food is very good, the tables aren't crowded together. The beer and wine list is good is a little limited. I like that it's on the 4th floor rather than street level.

Vegetarian was limited to only two options. The hummus selection was not fresh, lacked flavor , and did not make a satisfactory meal. I expected more vegetarian selections from a Mediterranean restaurant. The price was excessive. I left after a few bites and didn’t finish the wine. the server was very accommodating and did her best to be attentive.

My main course did not arrive simultaneously with my friends. In fact I had to flag down the waitress a few times to inquire what had happened to my entree which was exactly the same dish my friend had ordered. Utensils, creamer also required the flagging down of the wait staff. Not a great experience although the space is airy and very appealing. Too bad.

We’ve been here three or four times and have always liked it. The cauliflower appetizer is particularly good. And the fish entrées have been excellent. We also like the mezze platter, but it is way too much dip for two people.

I don’t want to make too much of it, but I got a huge mouth full of sediment from my glass of Malbec. I think good service would’ve been to take that glass off of my check rather than just say, “well, that seems to happen a lot with Malbec.” Hey, if it happens a lot, then strain it when you pour it. It’s not rocket science.

The food was great but the decor of this restaurant is just bizarre. It's an interior designers nightmare. There is no one stream of thought with the decor. The menu is limited but our club sandwich and fries were amazing! If you are looking for an authentic NYC restaurant this is not it.

Our food came out quickly and was delicious from start to finish! The Restaurant Week menu is not to be missed. Portions were ample, food was flavorful. Will be back again!

The worst experience in New York City.
Our server didn’t bring our coffees for almost 15 minutes. All the while taking care of a women who came after us. She lied about the menu option and didn’t tell us until the food came to the table. My order was completely wrong, and my fiancé’s was ice cold. We asked to take it back and bring us the check. The manager still made us pay for our cold coffees. The server wouldn’t even come back to the table to apologize or take our payment.

Disappointing on so many levels!
1) so dark i had to use my phone torch to read the menu. Menu lights would help. Also difficult to see what i was eating.
2) order still water it came to the table in a plastic bottle ice cold which the waitress plonked on the table with a glass to pour myself. As i was drinking red wine room temperature should have been provided, but they didn't have any.
3) food arrived fast and furious. Ribs were overcooked, which suggests they were pre-cooking courses, and arrived as my starter was taken away.
4) i had to order my dessert at the beginning as this was off the special menu, which makes it very un-special. I would probably have chosen differently, but couldn't change. Again this suggests everything is plated up well in advance.
5) staff were keen but untrained, i was twice asked how my food was before i had started.

One of the few Christmas day options not asking for a small fortune in order to dine, we opted for this as one of our party is vegan. The food was a pleasant surprise. The soup was hands down the best thing on the table, followed by the ribs. The desserts were all a fail. My suggestion is "simpler is better" in choosing the meal, but it is a well priced option in the area.

Stepping into Green Fig you feel as if you were transported into another place and time. The vibe was relaxed, urban, trendy, and cool. The service was outstanding and we never had to ask for anything. Our server was on top of all our needs and he had great recommendations for cocktails, wines and food. The food was fresh, local and delicious. Each food item was presented beautifully and flavors were on point. I would definitely recommend Green Fig.

We really enjoyed our pre-theater meal here - it's a perfect location for Signature Theater, the New Group and Playwrights Horizons, and even for Broadway. A very nice, three-course, prix-fixe menu. Good portions and very flavorful food. And our server, Angel, was superb. Definitely worth a visit.

Everything about this restaurant is wrong.

- Online descriptions fail to tell you that it is located in the Yotel, which is an economy hotel.
- Despite the fact that we may have been his only table, our server wanted to be somewhere else besides serving us
- Ingredients for the mezze plate were mixed in another century and were mediocre at best. When we asked for more pita bread, we were told that would have to pay for a seperate Pita bread order.
- The Burrata is smothered in poor-tasting smears and jellies
- Despite being marketed as a mediterranean restaurant, the Kebabs were overcooked and terrible.
- The mixed drinks featured on the cocktail menu were weak and had very little alcohol

After a hellish Uber ride from the west Village we finally arrived an hour later. Luckily I was able to make a 9:00 reservation after the Green Fig cancelled our 8:00 reservation as a no show. We arrived at 8:30 but apparently they didn’t notify open table that we had arrived. I told them about the new reservation. The drinks were good and a welcome relief after the ride to the hotel!

Tucked away on the fourth floor of the Yotel Hotel in Hell's Kitchen, the Green Fig is an easy walk to the theater district but away from the rush of pre-theater diners. The staff are warm and welcoming. The room is large and spacious, and has a wall of windows to watch the sun set. The menu is varied Israeli/Middle Eastern, with reasonable prices. We did have an issue with the wine, which is pumped with CO2 rather than poured from bottles, creating an unexpected bubbly effervescence; but a new glass was quickly brought. The mezze platter was more then enough for two; we will go back and try more.
