Really fun tapas, try the bacon wrapped dates!

We tried a few tapas (in the order that I like them): bacon wrapped dates, meatballs, cheese plate, duck, gnocchi with shaved brussel sprouts. Small inside, attentive staff!

Many to choose from but the Fig is my favorite Cleveland restaurant. Love the cheese board and the combination of flavors. Would recommend in a second.

The place is in a great neighborhood on one of the great little side streets to the bustling Ohio City neighborhood. Karen Small is one of the top chefs in Cleveland and her menu is unique and very tasty. It is an upscale type of place, a little pricey but you won't be disappointed in your meal.

Would go there over and over! Val, the bartender that evening was spot on with everything my friends and I were looking to drink and eat!

My boyfriend and I ended up here after a mistake involving a nearby restaurant's hours so we had no expectations of this place. Overall, the food was very good. I had the pancake special and my boyfriend had the chilequiles and both were delicious. Both entrees plus two drinks cost us around $44, which was expensive considering the portion sizes.... More

The food here is very good but it is expensive ($19 for burger & huge pile of fries). Specials are approx $26 and up and the portions are not large. I wish this place would invest in better & more comfortable chairs - the last 2 visits, I had to change chairs because the legs were wobbly. And, none of... More

Heard a lot about this spot, anxious to try, disappointed. An early lunch on a Saturday, place was packed, a good sign – right? Food was mediocre nothing special, I think this is more of a breakfast spot? Sat in the back of the dining room, this place is in need of a good cleaning, paint, baseboards dirty, carpet dirty,...

Two of my girlfriends and I went last night and had a great experience! The atmosphere was hip and cool. We sat at a tiny booth made just for 3, it was cute. We started off with some fantastic cocktails; la vie en rose, the safflower, and the ginger margarita. All were delicious and all came highly recommended by our... More

I popped in here with a customer after dinner and it was great. The decor is a little dated but it has a quaint feel. Rob was our bartender and he was very knowledgeable about the wine. He was very personable and not at all a snob about the fact we ordered one of the cheaper bottles of wine. It... More

Went on a Saturday night and it was quite busy. Service was good and friendly. Overall the food was quite good, but nothing was spectacular. The bread plate appetizer was good but we sure could have used more bread, its pretty skimpy. The gnocci was excellent and the fish special was quite good, although the black bean side was a...
