I really want to like Fig, but I just don't.

About every six months, someone suggest Fig for dinner, and I go, thinking THIS will be the time that does it. But it never happens, and it's not just because I find the food to be just fine (nothing to write a post about), but usually because of the bad taste in my mouth that's left there from the surly service.

Every time I've been there, there's been an issue with the check - or a mis-delivered meal - or in the case of the other night, being delivered the incorrect meal. And each time, the server leaves us feeling as though WE did something wrong, not them. In fact, the last time, he thrust the menu in my face to prove his point (odd, since he was incorrect). In this instance, the steak ordered included blue cheese, which was missing. For $46, I'd like what's listed, thank you, and without attitude.

Others have marveled here about the farm to table freshness, or inventive dishes, but all four of us were very "meh" about our dishes. Four of us (Moules, Steak, Meatloaf, Scallops, Onion soup, salads all around), and each of us noted too much salt. It just isn't great and I don't think I can be convinced to go back - feel free to take my vacant seat.
