Fig Tree Cafe - Hillcrest

Fig Tree Cafe first opened in Pacific Beach in 2008 and has now opened its second location in the heart of Hillcrest. Our menu changes with the seasons as we use in-season, locally grown products. Our PB location was voted best Brunch in San Diego 2010 and we"re excited to bring this award winning cuisine to Hillcrest. Our dinner menu features items such as Short Ribs, Fig and Prosciutto Pizza, Lobster Ravioli, rosemary, thyme and lemon marinated Jidori Chicken, along with a moderately priced, eclectic wine list. We take great pride in our friendly, inviting and unpretentious style of service.

"The warmly lit dining room was very comfortable and inviting. We sat at the bar that overlooks the kitchen and prep area which afforded a nice glimpse into the hard work the cooks were putting into their foods. The wine selection was high quality without breaking the bank and the all food was incredibly fresh. What stood out to me was the fish entrée- cooked perfectly with light seasoning that allowed the subtleties of the natural oils in the moist filet to really shine; the side vegetables and potatoes were tender and bursting with flavor. This is a great restaurant for meeting with friends after work, date night, or hosting some out of town relatives to experience high quality cuisine that is distinctly "San Diego"."

"I wasn't expecting much since I don't usually eat in the area. But once I took a bite of my food I knew it was a good choice. It's a nice place. The food was tasty and the portions were very reasonable for the prices. The restaurant was very short staffed when we went but they handled themselves very well. Great find and highly recommend."

"I have been here for both brunch and dinner meals and they are always wonderful. The service is great, the food is even better! With daily specials to choose from and a menu you always know will be good, how can you go wrong? Definitely recommend it!"

"We went on Dec 30th. in the evening after flying into San Diego. It was not a busy night. We had 4 adults and a 3.5 year old - Dylan. Dylan immediately jumped up to the bar seating area where one of the chef's gave him a fresh strawberry. He was so happy. The waiter, Michael, learned Dylan's name quickly and took special are of him and us. Food was great, MIchael was excellent - both from service and friendliness perspectives."

"The food here was fine, nothing over the top, but tasty. The service was fine: Friendly and quick. Overall it's a nice reliable, neighborhood spot that's good for a casual night out (or brunch).
One weird thing to mention: The "man candy" on the appetizer list was one thing we ordered, thinking it would come as some sort of bruschetta....On the menu it's under "Bruschetta" so seemed likely. Unfortunately what came out was slabs of crispy bacon. And nothing else! It was really odd. It tasted fine, but we felt pretty silly eating it with our wine!"

"Had dinner here before a play at the Old Globe. Easy to find parking. Service and ambience very good but food was just okay. I had the filet with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The asparagus was undercooked, the potatoes a bit heavy, and the filet was certainly not a choice cut. My husband had the gnocchi with a havarti jalapeño cream sauce and chicken with rosemary. This was a much better choice, but still not up to my standards. Generous portions."

"Our server stood around A LOT. He never checked on us, was slow, inattentive and had absolutely no knowledge of the menu. I've been to this restaurant twice (trying to give a second chance) but the service both times was terrible, so unfortunately, I won't be back."

"We had an early reservation (5:30), and almost had the place to ourselves for much of our time there. Our server got us to a nice table, got us started with a beverage and told us about the specials. We started with the roasted beet and goat cheesed salad and some portobello fries. Delicious! My wife had the sea bass and I had the short ribs, which were perfectly moist and tender, in a delicious sauce with excellent mashed potatoes. She really enjoyed the sea bass too. For dessert, we had the fig pudding with vanilla ice cream, which was great! The atmosphere was perfect for us. Good vibe, good classic rock music at just the right volume. The service was impeccable. Can't wait to go back and try some different menu items!"

"This place is usually a gem. I really like this place and do plan to return. Unfortunately this past Monday was not a day to go. I look forward to trying this place again when they are back to full form.
Our last visit was not nice. The cheese and meat board was bathed in some brown sauce and topped off with jam from the little rectangle tubs one finds on the table at Denny's. They just opened up the packet and plopped a little rectangle of jelly on the board. The waiter couldn't even tell us what was on the board. He could only say "it has some cheese and dry meats. The soup was potato - but might as well called it watery mashed potatoes. The crispy pork belly was pork - but not crispy."

"On the plus side, relaxed atmosphere, excellent service, and varied wine list.
The only negative is the parking -- found a spot 5 blocks away.
