Dined for both breakfast and dinner. The food is expertly prepared and the portions are ideal. The service at dinner was simply spectacular and left nothing to be desired

A very happening little spot. Reservations recommended.

We were staying at the Fairmont in Santa Monica and had made reservations at several restaurants before the trip. Imagine our surprise when FIG was the restaurant in the hotel. The food is amazing and not having to leave the hotel to eat superb food after a day of sight seeing was a plus. Everything on the menu is farm fresh. The roasted tomato soup with fresh basil and mascarpone was the best tomato soup I have ever eaten. For breakfast you have to try the lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberry butter for they simply melt in your mouth. The wait staff were very attentive without being annoying and were knowledgeable about both food and wine. Breakfast, dinner in the dining room, or late snacks in the lounge, the meals were fresh and tasty. If I ever return to Santa Monica, I would definitely eat at FIG.

This is an exceptional fooderie and can be best appreciated if you are a patron of hte Fairmont. Astounding sea bass palate for dinner, amazing lemon ricotta pancakes, and great lobby burgers. But the best? Coming in from a 12 hour day and being seatied whie in sweats and sitting down to a squash risotto and tomoatoe soup. THE BEST confort food found outside of my home:-)

THANK YOU for such consisten food while traeling. You rock!

This bistro uses organically grown produce from local suppliers to produce dishes that are masterful, full of flavour, yet not over-worked. Casual chic describes both the decor and the dress code, and the staff are professional, friendly and attentive. Great food and worth a visit.
