Figs Wood Fired Bistro crafts inventive contemporary American cuisine with global influence, in its warm and relaxing eatery in Sandy Hook. For starters, small plates, such as the brussel sprouts with balsamic reduction and a drizzle of honey and the old school meatballs with shaved pecorino cheese make excellent appetizers. Some of Figs Wood Fired Bistro's house specialty entrees include the spice crusted pork chops and maple glazed salmon and Madison Avenue Eggplant. You can't leave without the famous original brick oven Fig Pizza with fig puree, gorgonzola, mozzarella topped with fresh arugula salad, walnuts and fig balsamic. You can't go wrong with the popular Southern Comfort Chicken Sandwich served alongside homemade mac n cheese. Desserts are all homemade and vary each week but if you are lucky you will snag a slice of the lemon coconut cake.

    Beautiful restaurant! Ordered the charcuterie board, with meat for $19. Gorgeous presentation and generous portion, however the entire plate was cold. The Brie was too cold to spread and the bread was ice cold, hard and two of the four pieces were dark/burnt. The quality otherwise was great and we enjoyed it with two of the house cocktails which were lovely. We we seated at a tiny table for two, although we had a reservation and it was early - there were many nicer tables for four that would have been more comfortable than the drafty spot we were seated in. COVID is tough and maybe this isn’t typical, so we’ll give it another try.

    The service was terrible. Ordered our appetizers and waiter didn’t come back for a half hour (after we had to get up and ask for him) to take our dinner order. He was not knowledgeable regarding the beers available, had to come back twice to tell us something wasn’t available after it was ordered. Food was not the best, soup came out cold. Pizza was okay, I’ve had better. Overall would not recommend.

    My lobster roll was ok. Kaiser roll didn’t it justice. My husband had the tuna which was hard to cut which should be if it’s a good cut. Our server was on her first night and it was challenging to say the least. Probably won’t go back

    Truly a wonderful restaurant but the reservation system and consistency if service need some improvement. We had a reservation for an inside table and were offered an outside table initially and then ended up at a high top in the bar. Not our ideal scenario and not what we signed up for. I think the restaurant is short staffed which explains some of the lack of attention to detail, long wait for drinks and requests for other items. Mask use by staff was intermittent and questionable at best. On the constructive comment front: if you do not have an item or a wine why not remove or iodate the electronic menu in real time. Over a three week period you have been out of a decent Chardonnay- so why put people through the disappointment of planning an entree based on the wine list? Some upscale wines by the glass would be a welcome addition. Think old vine zins 🍷 Please get better as we love the food and location!

    Figs never disappoints!! Food is consistently delicious. Ordered the Korean beef taco special and it was the best taco I’ve ever had - and I eat a lot of tacos. And the fig pizza is still to die for. Great service - seated right away and food arrived quickly and with smiles. Can’t get enough of this place!

    Waitress was very nice and patient with me and my guest because we hadn’t seen each other in six months we just kept talking and didn’t order. Was polite told us to take her time. Food was delicious and service was great we ended up being the last people in the restaurant still talking at 10 o’clock and they still were saying no problem so on that note I’d say give them a try great food great service and very nice people

    The food was great. The server was friendly. We sat outside because of covid and the only thing that truly detracted from the experience was the noise level. I would recommend they construct some sort of noise barrier between the street and patio.

    Continues to be a family favorite, however My visit this time was not great. Service was very slow and took over 45 minutes to get our dinner. Seem that the take out orders were the priority.
