We split the ribeye and had the couscous and Brussel sprouts sides. Hubby had a whiskey flight. Food was delicious, but the service was amazing. Rob was our server and took our dinner from A to A+. Could go here every night. Highly recommend!!!

Menu features seafood, steaks, lamb and wildgame with a preference for local and sustainable product, but do leave room for the Sticky Toffee Pudding.With high Zagat ratings Biga is an ideal venue for a romantic dinner for 2 or has impressive private dining rooms to entertain clients.
