Sat on the lower patio. Beth, our server, was just excellent . Attentive and had all the answers to questions. A real pro. The veal chop was cooked to perfection. Definitely a fine dining establishment. They should have a dress code that prohibits t shirts, or a separate area inside only for those who do not have the class to wear anything else. Ambience is five stars. Noisy on the lower patio

This restaurant is amazing! The ambience is wonderful (quaint house with porch seating also), service was outstanding and the food to die for! We had the crab and fried avocado appetizer, cioppino and salmon, all of which were delicious. The 29-page wine list is impressive. Can’t wait to go again!

The food was sublime and the service was attentive without being fawning.
We're returning to the Fig Tree and would suggest to others that they do, too.

Make sure you are seated in a less crowded room. We sat upstairs and it felt very uncomfortable…tables were too close together.

First time there. Ambiance and service were outstanding. Food preparation was lacking . Caesar salad was tasty but very dry. Grouper and lobster were over cooked and rubbery. Considering the price point we expected food my mother in law calls “ a hummer” this fell short.

Our daughter loves this place so we decided to try for our anniversary. Nice location and our server, Suzie, was incredible.
The food seemed to be a little over priced compared to comparable places we usually dine. Additionally it had a nice presentation but the taste was simply ok. Thought it would have been better. Almost seemed as if parts had been pre-prepared.
Not a bad place but when paying $300 for dinner for two would expect better.

Friends in town and took there for a great meal. We had a fantastic time. The food was incredible and the service and sense of humor of Jennifer was like the entertainment for the meal. Can't wait to go back again.

The food is excellent, and the service superb. Rebecca does such a great job taking care of us. It was quiet enough for great conversation with my wife, though it became a little noisy late in our dinner when a table of eight businessmen were seated next to us. They were not discourteous, just a group who were enjoying dinner together.

This was our second visit to Fig Tree. We have been very impressed with the commitment of the owner’s to quality food and service. Jennifer has been our server both times and she is excellent. She has a deep knowledge of the menu and is able to quickly respond to questions about the ingredients in each dish and how it can be modified to accommodate distant requirements.

The Fig Tree has quickly become one of our favorite places to dine.
