One of Cleveland's better brunches

I read some of the experiences from other reviewers and I have to say that our services was quite good, everyone greeted my daughter and me with a smile, and no one was anything less than friendly. I do agree that the absence of a hostess station caused us a bit of confusion at first, but we... read more

Always great food. I love what she does with fish when she serves it with veggies and a broth. She has a Pork Shoulder on her menu with kind of the same twist. I plan to go back and try that soon! This restaurant never lets me down! Karen is the true troubadour that has raised the farm to table... More

If you like overpriced, mediocre food served by snotty unprofessional staff who treat you like you are bothering them by eating at their restaurant, than this is the place for you! I was looking forward to a special lunch after visiting the Rock and Roll of Fame and wanted to go to the brew pub across the street, but there... More

My husband, myself, and 2 friends visited for lunch on a recent Saturday. When entering the restaurant, you are in a small room which appears to be a deli. The young man behind the counter greeted us pleasantly, and motioned us toward the restaurant door. The restaurant was quite busy and "buzzy." No one approached us to seat us. We... More

The food was decent. Not sure if they were understaffed last Saturday but slow to get seating, slow to get food. Once food came it was good. Next time will pick a restaurant in the market.

Always a craft cocktail, several wines and appetizers for happy hour. Get there early as it fills up quickly.

It was our first time eating here and we enjoyed the experience. Our server was amazing. He gave us time to make our selection and made suggestions. We had some soup, salad, cheese plate and a bottle of wine. Very nice wine selection and our food was wonderfully prepared and delicious. We will visit again.

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.
