This is a five-star restaurant in every respect. After learning that it was our anniversary, we were seated at a wonderfully cozy table and provided with complementary champagne and truffles! The food and service were impeccable and I would highly recommend going there!

The Fig Tree was adjacent to our hotel, so we happened upon it our first night on the Riverwalk. We ordered the Crab Cakes for our appetizer and enjoyed them; one order can be easily shared by two people. Members in our party had the...More
