Yes, it's a bit cramped coming into the restaurant where the bar is always crowded but getting into the dining area is worth it. The rather terse menu doesn't do justice to the quality of preparation and interesting combinations. I've never had less than an...More

Dinner portions are small but taste good and are presented pleasingly. Cocktails are very good but expensive. Overall too pricey for budget minded folk.

Two vegetarians and one meat eater but there were several options for each of us. The veggie sandwich (don't remember the name of it but it was on toasted bread with avocado) was incredible. I would highly recommend it!

Tasty, delightful; prompt service. We will definitely return! Kale salad with chicken is scrumptious. Avocado toast is one of a kind tasty.

We happened upon this jewel after visiting the West Side Market. Wonderful sandwiches in a casual, fun atmosphere. The scrambled eggs were great as well. Excellent service. The only negative comment is that the "warm baguette" was not warm at all.

The Flying Fig has long been at the forefront of the farm-to-table movement. After nearly two decades, it remains our goal to support small family farms and local food artisans while creating critically acclaimed menus that evolve frequently to reflect seasonal availability. Our bar features a large, diverse wine list and craft cocktails prepared with local, fresh, and seasonal ingredients. Our atmosphere reflects our diverse neighborhood and is casual and friendly. Founded by owner and executive chef, Karen Small, next door to the restaurant is a small boulangerie-inspired pantry called Market at the Fig. The Market offers artisan sandwiches, fresh breads, and local products like pasta sauces and wines. Together, the two storefronts create a contemporary Parisian-inspired corner on a cobble-stoned street in Cleveland.
