We visited the Flying Fig after reading the reviews, and the availability of cheap parking across the street at the West Side Market didn't hurt either. The Fig has a lively atmosphere and does get quite loud, but not to the point of distraction. The...More

We were visiting from out of town and weren’t aware that reservations are recommended on Sundays. The hostess was a bit rude about that and his attitude was totally unnecessary...the restaurant was NOT full and we were seated right away. Once seated, our server was...More

Located across the street from the Great Lakes Taproom in the hip Ohio City neighborhood, the Flying Fig is a good place to grab lunch. The atmosphere is nice as is the service.

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.
