had dinner there saturday night (partly due to a restaurant.com gift certificate). It was the first time i had been there since it was figs (apparently the chef of the old figs bought it and changed the name - so it is very similar to figs).
We were late to our reservation and they held our table open (which was very nice cause they were crowded). Food was excellent, service was average. We had the hummus app (hummus, feta, spicy olives, a few veggies, and pita) 5.50, excellent and very garlicky, plenty for 2 to share. I had the filet with seared foie gras, fabulous! 22 bucks and came with a lovely brown sauce, asparagus and mashed potatoes. Steak was a good 8-10 ozuncs and cooked perfectly. Hubby had the lamb tagine (20 bucks), it was very tasty (loved the sauce and the dates) but small (only 3 chops) and neither of us liked the cous cous. Shared the chocolate souffle with homade chestnut rum raisin ice cream (6 bucks - from miel), WOW, we licked the plate clean, absolutely excellent.
Saw various other entrees/apps/desserts go by and they all looked good and with decent size portions (i guess our bad luck with the lamb.
Service was ok. They only had 2 waiters and no bus boys. They were very nice and accomodating, but it took awhile for them to get to your table. We wanted some more pita for our app, and we never found the waiter to ask him. Once you found someone however, they were very attentive (perhaps they were short-staffed). If you aren't in a rush it shouldn't bother you (of course we were, always the way)
Anyway it was very good, and i will definately be back :)
