the girl & the fig - Sonoma Ratings and Reviews
Had been here before and loved it. This time, the experience was not as positive. Ordered the Bacon Sandwich (a specialty). The bacon was definitely uncooked and “flabby”, making the sandwich quite greasy. Someone at the table next to later ordered the same sandwich and also commented on the undercooked bacon. Presentation unattractive. Had really looked forward to this lunch...disappointing. Also, had noted when we made the reservation that it was my husband’s birthday...was not acknowledged at lunch.
Recommended by a friend, and glad we went. Seasonal plat du jour was excellent. However, the service seemed to be out of sync with the excellence of the food--a little surprising because the restaurant didn't seem slammed. Our appetizer and wine came out before we finished our aperitif, we had to ask for meat knives for our entree, and the server brought our bill without asking if we wanted anything else--even though I intended to order another glass of the late harvest dessert wine that went so well with my cheese plate, and my husband was going to get a coffee with his dessert. Plan to try it again the next time we're in Sonoma to see if we just hit it on an off night.
We heard so many wonderful things about this restaurant but I must say we were very underwhelmed. Food, service, and atmosphere were very mediocre (especially for the price). Not what I was expecting at all. Would be a good place for a date though! The bar seemed like the best place in the restaurant. The dining room was on the sleepy side.
Wonderful French-style bistro taking advantage of local, seasonal ingredients to create a menu with something for everyone. We began with The Works, a charcuterie plate with meats, fruit compotes, nuts, and 3 cheeses of your selection. We especially loved the Laura Chenel goat cheese and a California sheep cheese and highly recommend each. The only downside of this dish was the accompanying baguette, which was stale - something pretty unforgivable for a French restaurant. Next we moved on to the chicken liver appetizer. I know ---- chicken livers are one of those things that you either love or hate. Well, these were so unique and delicious that if you could get a "hater" to try a taste, they would transform into a "lover!!" Thought this dish was the best item of the evening. We also ordered the flounder, a specialty for many years; we found it very underwhelming. The capers did not add anything to this delicately flavored fish, and it would have benefited from a crispy topping or something else that would have elevated the dish. On the other hand, the duck confit was really delicious. For wine, we ordered a white flight and a red flight. Although I am familiar with the varietals in each flight, the whites were not noteworthy. However, the reds were delicious so I would definitely recommend you give those a try. The atmosphere was energetic as the tables are very packed together. Usually I prefer some quiet space in a restaurant but this actually worked well. We even chatted a bit with the table next to us and noticed other tables doing the same. We couldn't help admiring our neighbor's quiche, which was the best I'd ever seen anywhere in the world. Definitely looking forward to going back again.
My mother and I enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant last week. Good menu options, large portion sizes and friendly staff. The tables are pretty close together. Although the room that we were seated in was empty, it was unfortunate that the hostess placed a loud group of 6 directly next to our table instead of seating them across the empty room. So much for being able to converse during the meal. Other than that, the food was good and we will go back.
For our first night in Sonoma, the Girl & Fig set the bar high for excellent food, relaxed atmosphere and an overall excellent experience.
We are outside under the stars, but between the ample heat lamps and additional blankets if needed, warmth wasn't an issue.
Definitely start with the mussels!
The Girl and the Fig is a wonderful place for dinner while you are in Sonoma. My husband and I went with another couple and we love this spot. The mussels were outstanding! Our steak was cooked perfectly! I don't think we left anything on our plates. Great spot!
We drove up from San Rafael to support a Sonoma business after the fires, attracted by an email this restaurant sent out noting that "Sonoma is Open for Business". It was, indeed, and the staff at this restaurant was on top of their game. A very enjoyable and heartening experience.
After a very long week enduring our Sonoma fires, losing power for 4 days and being on edge everyday. We were able to enjoy a very delicious meal at Girl and the fig. Felt so lucky they were open and had power! It was my husbands birthday and I wanted to have a special dinner for him. Our meal was great. And the service was excellent. This restaurant is a true gem in Sonoma!
We were visiting Sonoma for our 20th anniversary. The Girl and the Fig came HIGHLY recommended from several friends and we too were very impressed. The food was delicious. Our waitress was a delight. I had the special wine and food pairing and was not disappointed. I ate duck for the first time and it was truly divine!
Unfortunately, while dining on the patio was great with the sparkling lights and the heaters on, the service was rushed and felt like they were there to turn tables - couldn't find us a knife to cut the duck that was way over cooked - and for the prices: scallops and duck - not worth it. Spend $120 for two with a single round and dinner and splitting a salad someplace smaller that isn't the tourist trap.
After securing a reservation far in advance of our visit, we wanted to add our local friend. They would not accommodate our request. We sat at the "community table." Bad idea. Our "huge" disappointment was with the front of the house staff and the "attitude," they displayed toward us. We now know why our "local friend," has stopped eating at this restaurant. They could have cared less about us. Go to Cafe La Haye if you want great food and great service and a welcoming attitude. Your hard earned dollars matter to them and they want your experience to be the very best all around. Skip "The Girl and the Fig."
We are vegetarians, so we had several appetizers that were delicious - the beet salad, fried green tomatoes and fig sampler. All 3 were incredible! We had such a nice time too. Our server had been there for 16 years and she made our experience so relaxing and enjoyable. We highly recommend the girl and the fig!
The appetizers were good, we had the mussels and cheese platter. The service was good and attentive. The entrees we had were average - certainly not as exceptional as I was expecting. We had to send the steak back for not being cooked enough and my scallops were average, nothing special about them. The lunch was not worth the high cost. I don't plan to go back here again. I expected more from the high ratings and reputation of the restaurant
My wife and I made plans to stop in here during our honeymoon for some light fare before heading off to a winery. We were seated near a window with a street view of Napa and were treated to some complimentary champagne to begin our visit. We ordered their charcuterie board and it was the perfect amount of food for a happy hour meal. We stayed and enjoyed our drinks without being bothered much by our server. We did see some of the entrees come out and they looked great. Would love to come back and visit this place for dinner!
