There was no a lot of people there at12brunch and yet trying to get service was often challenging. Refill on coffee was a hassle watched others just get up get their I own from back. Simple food variety. Good though and fresh. Weird layout for food display. Loud piano
Excellent food and service. Portions are a bit small for the price, but food is delicious. We lucked out on a Friday night with a superb band.
Slow and confused service, bad food, cheesy ambiance. The only thing going for this place was the live music. Feeling disappointed after reading such good reviews of this restaurant.
We picked The Wild Fig because they had a ton of GF options on the Valentines Day menu, and the reviews weren't bad. Observations:
- We felt like we had to ask for too many things: to hang up our coats; for service to get our first drinks (servers walked by/no eye contact); for the horseradish we'd requested initially with our food order but was missing; for the wine that we asked to be served with the meal; to refill water glasses x 2;
- There was an appetizer identified on the menu as gluten free, but when I ordered it, the server came back from the kitchen and told me that it wasn't. I had disclosed my wheat allergy early on, but dessert had a biscotti garnish on it. Server had to check with the kitchen to see if it was GF (it of course wasn't).
The food was a 6/10 and we enjoyed the live jazz music very much. Our servers were actually good humoured and friendly, albeit distracted. The maitre'd was a highlight for us with his engagement and helpfulness when the above items went awry.
We would probably wait for a spate of consistently good reviews about the service before we go back, though.
Extremely slow service, over hour and half for food to arrive at table. Food is good, but proteins are small and expensive.
The food was amazing. I had the glazed salmon and really enjoyed it. The live band was loud enough to enjoy and moderate enough for conversation. There was a good sized dance floor and the very friendly atmosphere. There was ample room to walk around, view the band and get on and off the dance floor. This place is a real gem.
2nd year going for dine out. Food is always good. People watching is usually our main entertainment with live music and dancing. I like personal visits from the mgr/maitre'd
The staff were really great and accommodating for my food allergies.
The food was really good!
The food was delicious from appetizer to main course to dessert!
this turned out to be part of Dine Vancouver. Value ok for what we had. We however, had looked at regular menu and a bit disappointed could only order from Dine Vancouver Menu.
Quiet setting, live music in background. Easy to visit while eating. Food was well prepared , The Salmon was excellent, bit light with the veggies and Quinoa. Desserts were excellent and fully enjoyed.
Happy Hour glass of wine for $4. VERY tasty food and excellent service. Dine Out was a wonderful way to try out this restaurant. Very quiet for an early dinner, then live music started at 7:30. Had a very memorable evening. Dinner was perfectly plated and seasoned. We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable.
Food and service were great.
The Manager was great! The server, not so great!
Truthfully, the manager made the dinner worth while. Food was good but the steak wasn't that great. Appetizer and dessert was delicious.
Ambiance with the live music was Romantic. Probably suited for older crowds.
I have unusual dietary needs and they were very helpful.
Friendly service and good food.
Should have tried their paired wines with the dine out menu!!!
Food was decent portion and the dessert was amazing. Entree was average; striploin steak was under-cooked (was more rare than medium-rare as ordered). We were the only table there so service was good and the ambiance was perfect for our girls' night out to catch up.
I loved it, my girlfriend and I had a great evening together. We loved how elegant it was and that we could dress nice for a great night out. Everything was fantastic from the serves, to the food and then the live music. I would come back again.
This place is amazing! I've been here three times and every time, their food has been amazing. The salmon will just melt in your mouth, and their truffle mac and cheese is heaven!
We went to the buffet on the same day as a huge Christmas party group or two. That could have been bad but it wasn't. The buffet is set up so you really never have to wait in line. Even with all those people the platters and dishes were always full and fresh. The omelet bar was great and made to order. I like the way they have a separate room just for breakfast foods. The service was actually better on this extremely busy day than when I had gone before on a quieter day. Definitely recommend this place.
I was at the Wild Fig for lunch with a friend that I've known for almost 70 years. We do lunch on
our birthdays. This restaurant was perfect for a quiet catch-up lunch. The food was great and we were free to sit as long as we chose. I would go back without any hesitation.
