Right next to its sister restaurant, the Little Rhein Steakhouse, The Fig Tree is nestled between The Hilton and the Aronson outdoor stage and theater on the Riverwalk. I have been coming here for over 30 years for the ambiance and food. Set on the slope from the street to the river, the tables descend on multiple terraces all the way down to the river bank. You can also sit inside when the weather does not permit al fresco dining, but to me sitting in the gazebo is a huge part of the charm. Top the ambiance off with wonderful food and it is always enjoyable. Last week we had the duck and salmon and both were superb. Bananas Foster and Baked Alaska flambeed table side (inside) was the icing on the cake.

Was very, very expensive. Food was just average. Outdoor dining was a challenge as there was wind tunnel effect.

The food was very good and the service was also quite good. It is right on the Riverwalk. Nice views of the Riverwalk.

Entered from the Riverwalk and there were several steps up to restaurant, more to enter the restaurant, and more to the dining area. Food was delicious and staff very accommodating.

If you are looking for a top restaurant... not the typical tourist place...this is the best restaurant on the River Walk. Ask for outside seating if available... While a bit pricey the food is outstanding...The menu is limited but sufficient the same with the wine list. The service is attentive. Most importantly it is a great place to actually have conversation without all the noise most River walk have. There is a sense of privacy as the tables are set on terrace above the river walk. Worth the extra price.
