Did not meet expectations

Overpriced, below average, does not live up to the hype, and failed to meet expectations. We took our daughter and boyfriend there for a university graduation celebration as the reviews were positive and my wife and I had passed by the restaurant many times over the years and thought it might be a nice place to try out. We sat on the patio, which could be wonderful, but the seats were the most uncomfortable I have ev... view more

so poorly run for so expsensive ""local"" owners are absentee go to Biga's

Stay away save your money. Even though we had reservation and restaurant was empty on a Saturday (should have been our first clue) the maitre?d sat us in a horrible place telling us that they would be filling up. It was 8:15 and no dinner customers came in after us. He failed to give us menus which we waited for, for 15 minutes. We order a nice bottle of wine and were brought the incorrect vintage waited another 10 m... view more

The best part was the view... which says a lot about the food!

The view from the patio was wonderful, and the atmosphere outside was lovely, but the food was remarkably average, and the service left a lot to be desired, both of which were disappointing considering the prices. There are much better restaurants in San Antonio in this price range.

Super!

We chose The Fig Tree to celebrate my son's 21st birthday and his receiving the Purple Heart for injuries received in Iraq. There were 10 of us along with several other large parties but we felt as if we were the only people in the restaurant. The staff was absolutely wonderful and the food was great. We ordered a variety of dishes and everyone of them came out perfect. When they found out what we were celebratin... view more

Be careful with your credit card

Be sure to check with your credit card company, the server changed the amount of my tip without asking. The receipt at the restaurant shows what I authorized but the amount at the credit card company was about $29 more. Therefore, it was fraud. Use cash if you dare go there.

Wonderful atmosphere

We go to San Antonio every year, and wouldn't miss visiting The Fig Tree at least once. The food is exceptional, and if you want to eat on the patio, they have heaters and will even give you a blanket to put over your lap! The staff is excellent.

One of the worst run places Ive been

I do not traditionally take the time to write reviews like this. Spare yourself. Go to a steakhouse. This place is dated and the management is pathetic. I had a reservation 3 weeks in advance and they made me wait an extra 45 minutes for my table. I wanted to eat here because of the dessert and they ran out everything by the time my meal was over.\r \r I don?t want to talk about the restaurant. It is fine, I suppos... view more

You have to check it out yourself!!

It is definitely my favorite restaurant in San Antonio! The atmosphere was romantic (especially from where we were sitting -- table 701, the ""Lovers' Table"" in the upstairs Crystal Room), food was wonderful (escargot appetizer was unbelievable, beef entrees were superb and bananas foster dessert was unforgettable) and service was top-notch (our waiter, Adam, was very professional and took very good care of us). W... view more

Pricy but worth it

A large group of us showed up in jeans not realizing how upscale this place was but nevertheless received impeccable service. Inside looks like your rich grandmother's house (I didn't think it was romantic but the location/view makes up for it). Highly recommend the banana foster (the tableside flaming ritual is worth every $ you'll pay here). Ask the sommelier to recommend a wine but specify your price range or y... view more

Wonderful Food, very Romantic

Thank you CITYSEARCH! We found this here and it was a jewel of a resturant. We went here for our one year wedding anniversary and will never forget it! We saw a tip here on city search saying to ask for the crystal room for a romantic dinner. BOY WAS IT RIGHT! It was a little room on the second floor with a view to die for and more romantic than even the nicest upscale resturant. We were the only people in the room a... view more
