We ordered takeout. No indoor seating right now. Salmon and burger were EXCELLENT! The cookie cake seemed stale, but was fun. The watermelon soup was weird and unpleasant like a cup-full of watermelon juice and vinegar. We would definitely order again, but skip the soup....The curb side pickup was fast and helpful.More

Food was amazing. Had dinner there twice and the food was great each night. It was three of us and the cozy atmosphere was great. Nicely decorated. You can see the chefs preparing the meals. They also do not charge you to open your wine...you bring in from the outside which is a bonus. Their house Syrah wine was also great.More

Same owners as the Girl & the Fig with same quality of food. Daily Plat du Jour is a real value. Small and no reservations but tables turn quickly. Every meal was amazing. Also allow free corkage. Very friendly and excellent service. Will definitely be...back... favorite by locals.More

Great little restaurant! Four of us had dinner there and we had really good simple food and wonderful service. Venue is ok, could be a cozy place. Thumbs up!!

Their three-course "plat du jour" would be more commonly called "prix fixe." Anyway, at $31, with no charge for corkage, it's a great deal. Last week, it was roasted beet salad, with fennel, some other veggies, and a vinaigrette dressing; a terrific pork stew (perfect...comfort food for a winter night!); and molasses-ginger cake, with fruit compote. We brought a Sokol Blosser pinot noir (sorry, California, but Oregon makes consistently better pinots!). A sensational meal!! The regular menu is also excellent, especially: crispy chicken thighs, mussels, truffle fries, pot roast, soups, and profiteroles. Lots of peoples order their pizzas and burgers, but I think the other offerings are too good to resist. The service is also excellent -- competent and friendly.More

Casual atmosphere, good food. We had the special one night and came back the following night for pizza and mussels. Buy a bottle at a winery and drink it there. They’ll cork it and give you proper glasses.

Made a trip back to the Fig for the first time in a couple of years with local friends. The ambience is casual cool wine country, easy going and inviting. Service was excellent. Corkage is free, so we brought one of our favorite Sonoma pinot...noirs. We split the excellent fig, arugula, goat cheese, pancetta and pecan salad ($13) is generous and it easily feed two. I went with the delicious pancetta pizza ($16), which could have feed two (I took half home). My wife had the steak frites, which was the only off note in the meal. She asked for medium well, but the steak came out medium rare. If I had realized it, I would have sent it back for further cooking. All in all, a fun place and excellent evening with friends.More

We found this restaurant after a wine tasting and went in unfashionably early. The food was outstanding. My husband ordered the Brussels sprouts starter (my husband ate Brussels sprouts voluntarily!) and they were wonderful. For entrees we ordered the pot roast and the steak frites,...one of their most popular menu items. Service was friendly, efficient and well timed. We were impressed with the quality of the food. When a restaurant is in an area with a tourist client base, it is nice to be in a place the locals patronize.More

No stars as the place isn’t open for Saturday or Sunday brunch like some of the reviews from 2017 indicated. We made a special trip from San Rafael but did end up at Garden Court Cafe up the street that was doing a very brisk...business for brunch.More

The wine list was very interesting, but I did not notice if they offered St. Anne's wines.
