It's always a treat when you have a perfect meal at a good price. This is the only place to go out on cleveland for a nice meal. Such solid quality and excellent service.

We had Sunday brunch at the Flying Fig. The Italian Cuban was very good and very unique. Another person in our party had the Chicken Salad and the other had tomato soup and sandwich. It was all very good but with drinks a little on the expensive side.

We stopped in for a glass of wine. The woman at the front was abrupt and dismissive of us since we didn't have reservations. It was quite crowded in the bar; so, I understand her hesitation, but we really did not feel welcome at all until the sweet younger woman at the bar helped us.

We went there on 1/21/17 and got our table at 7. It is a nice place but small as advertised and loud. We began with drinks and beers as well as a bacon encrusted dates which were small but good and a cheese plate which was very good. They ran out of a special very early but we all liked... More

We made reservations for 11:45, they weren't super busy at the time and took us early. Filled up quickly. A little loud. Menu on trip advisor wasn't the same as their website which wasn't the same as the actual store - but some of the same stuff was on there and we were pleased with the specials offered. The Cuban...

The Flying Fig is a nicely appointed bar/restaurant in the lively West Side market area. Out server was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Our appetizers of calamari and bacon wrapped dates were very tasty, and the burgers we both had were out of this world, made with the finest meat. More expensive than your average burger, but so worth it!

The burger at Flying Fig is truly the best in Cleveland. Cooked perfectly, homemade aioli, bacon and cheese. Nice brioche bun and a side of pickles and homemade ketchup for the outstanding french fries. They use Pope's Bloody Mary Mix and make a wonderful drink. The service is excellent and the interior is very nice too.

Thank Lakefront_WBY
