    First time they have reopened since March 2020. Menu has shrunk and even allowing for inflation, the value is down. The chicken in my Caesar salad was dry, overcooked. And the salad itself was thoroughly mediocre. No more bread with meals. Altogether I was extremely disappointed and recommend that USC people avoid what, before COVID, was becoming a pretty good restaurant. On the plus side, our server was excellent. I tipped her 25% on the total plus tax.

    Tables are too close together. Loud rumbling noise underneath the floor and vibration. Servers took too long to approach the table and take our order. Food is overpriced given taste/flavor. Only redeeming factor is it's close to Bovard Hall.

    Bread was great, service was okay, the time we had to wait to get our food (I know it's not the server) was ridiculously long. We almost missed our event. Food for the price was below par. We will not be attending this restaurant ever again and we'll pass the word on to other Trojan families. SO disappointed.

    Haven't been here in a while, even though I work at USC. This time, both the meal and the service were good, even though no one came to refill our drinks until I asked them to. That's the only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five. Also, the value varies from entree to entree. I thought the value was good for what I ordered, but some of the other items are a bit pricey, especially for lunch.

    I usually have a good experience at Moreton Fig when I'm with a group or with supervisor, but today I was with a friend and the service seemed sub-par. Why would a person who doesn't appear to be wait staff (manager?) be bringing my food and my condiments to my table? My friend said her chicken sandwich was under-cooked which was another issue. It took a while for our server to engage us and it seems that Moreton Fig does not recognize parties of two as being as important as larger groups. I didn't feel like I received the service that I am accustomed to and I didn't enjoy the meal as much as I had hoped to.

    Lunch was great again and I will be returning 4 more times before the end of the calendar year. The Cuban sandwich was a big hit. The Garden burger crumbled and fell apart. There are better options for a meatless burger today and I recommend you study the matter and switch to a better product.

    Best open to all dining experience on USC's campus, other than the more restricted University Club. Creative menu and well-presented items. Limited wine list but nice options. Servers were great on our last 2 visits. Beautiful patio under the historic Moreton Fig trees. If you are on campus and want a cut above college cafeteria or fast food dining, this is the place.

    Today I sat outside and started my experience with the Watermelon Lemonade. For my entree, I had the Lobster Tacos with the salsa mixture on the side. (next time I'll have them apply it as it was tasty). It was accompanied with a nice mixed green salad with lemon vinaigrette. Another amazing lunch Moreton Fig. You never disappoint.

    The ambiance is very nice, the servers are all at the top of their game---very efficient and professional and also cordial. The lunch menu is eclectic and has something for every taste and appetite. Thankfully, the menu is not complicated and there were only two "specials" announced which was perfectly brief for a lunch date. Again, simplicity and efficiency are the key words here. In and out in one hour and satisfied with our experience made going back to work easier. Although the decibel level can be challenging, there is a surrounding elegance there that undeniably adds to dining pleasure.
