Overpriced and underwhelmed. For a city with so many culinary options, Figa was a disappointment. The service was lack lustre. Our wait person seemed disinterested and distracted. She barely gave us the time of day. For these prices, the waitperson should be well dressed, alert,...More

I have never had a piece of fish cooked so perfectly as I did at Figa. Deliciously buttery in texture, but with a crackly skin, my Altantic char was mouth-wateringly perfect. It was paired with a cold side salad of local, seasonal produce that was...More

The Bad - After closing for a week, I suspected that it might be a challenge for Figa to get up and running again. The Figa website listed the opening time as 5:30, but I still called to check. I was greeted by a recorded...More

My wife and I wanted to try Figa in Portland, ME. We went early to make sure we got in as they opened and were given a seat right away. That was good. It's a small place and I really liked the way they had...More

Many things to love with a minor annoyance make this a place I would return to in a town loaded with food options. The menu offers unusual options for both vegetarians and carnivores. I loved the lamb shank, the house salad was uninteresting, the bread...More
