Our waiter took our drink order and within minutes the bartender was outside asking how we wanted one particular drink. Then after we recd the drink he was right back out asking how we liked them. I can't remember the last time that has ever happened. Great service!!!! Oh and the drinks were excellent too.

We were visiting from out of town and really enjoyed a Sunday brunch here. I had the polenta, which was very enjoyable. My friends quite enjoyed their meals as well. They opened at 11 am and seemed to get busy pretty quickly!

This is another fine place for dinner in Ohio City. The menu is varied and interesting and the food and drink are excellent. While it was a bit noisy (what restaurants aren't these days?!), tables were not crammed together. Most impressive was our server, Lynn. She knew exactly when we needed her, and when we didn't. We enjoyed a relaxed... More

Wonderful service and delicious food. We were a large group and we kept having to change our reservation and they could not have been more gracious. When we arrived we were squeezed into a booth (our fault for changing so often) but when a larger space became free they moved us happily. Great beer and wine selection and whilst the... More

Had dinner early on a Friday night. The place was not very crowded when we arrived, but filled up as the evening went on. A creative chef with well prepared food. Special appetizer was an intriguing combination of mozzarella cheese, with tomato, grilled corn and grilled peaches. Flavors were surprisingly compimentary. Scallops with chilled summer veggies was very good. My... More

I dined at the Flying Fig on a Sunday for brunch with my family. We arrived early and the hostess was able to seat us at a table on the patio. I had a Bloody Mary that was very good and had a touch too much spice. I ordered the croque madame that was topped with a fried egg. The... More

My boyfriend is originally from the Cleveland area and took me to visit for my birthday. For dinner, we headed to Ohio City and one of his favorite restaurants, The Flying Fig. Our meal was amazing! It was a hot summer evening and our server recommended the best plates, nothing heavy but full of flavor! We shared the cheese platter... More

It currently sits on the cleveland.com A-list, and for good reason. This Ohio city eatery features several well composed dishes and a rotating seasonal menu. The tempura beans with ponzu and pineapple caramel was a surprise and the calamari was a slight let down (the pickled vegetables didn't quite match up well with the other elements). Overall, a great place... More

We arrived around 11:45am Sunday and had to walked around for 20 minutes for the table, which is expected for the flying fig. We went to the westside market and after we came back, the table was ready before they called us. Black coffee was great and we had the special of the day - donut. Bread was served with... More
