5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Food has been consistently excellent over the last 2 decades. Lovely, quiet setting and warm service like a French inn..

“Nice selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Food for all - young, old, and us "in betweeners." The salad bar will fill you up - but save room for the homemade soups, breads and pasta. If you are a dessert person and love ice cream, you'll be happy.

“Better than where we dined in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

The Ripe Tomato in Fig Garden Village is a French tradition in our family, the site of a wedding celebration, power political dinners, birthdays and romantic dinners for two. Last night was just the two of us. We started with beet salad for her and onion soup for me. The soup was fabulous, the beet salad with blue cheese dressing was superb. We chose the beef filet topped with dunginess crab, tarragon dressing, green beans, gratin potatoes --just one for the two of us dining side by side. The beef was absolutely perfect medium rare, and the taste combination took us back to the best of France The bottle of Edna Valley Cab complimented the meal beautifully. It was a romantic, tasty, wonderful meal for about $150 including tip.

“French Gourmet In Every Imaginable Way.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012 via mobile

This is a special occasion place. Every detail requested was taken care of. The food, wine and service was perfect. It is French food so expect a French spin on every dish but oh, my, what an impressive meal front to back. Don't be put off by the throwback decor - it is a unique and worthwhile eating experience. Try the Filet if in doubt.
