As was with my other visits to Figs restaurant, I'm still very impressed with the service, food and ambience.
When I mentioned that my husband and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary, they surprised us with a dessert!

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We used First Table the first time we went to this restaurant and ended up using it for our wedding dinner. The wait staff were lovely and very accommodating, especially since we had a toddler walking around. I was a little disappointed they no longer served the truffle mash with their meals (it was a stand out side dish), but understand. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

As per our other visits, food (salmon, chicken and curry) were perfectly cooked and the service was excellent. The staff were very helpful to accommodate our last minute change in the number of people due to family members visiting us and also the request of a cushion and a special dietary requirement.
Lovely ambience and would definitely go back again!

What a fantastic experience! Making a decision on what to eat was very hard, the options on the menu were a nice suprise. The meal was absolutely delicious. The service was superb! We will most definitely be back! They even had a delightful Port on the menu!

We had a FANTASTIC experience! The food was top notch as always and the staff superb. Minimal waiting time, we were very well looked after by all the staff but Trish was our main waitress and NOTHING was a bother. I casually mentioned it was my partner's birthday so we were celebrating a special night out. Before we ordered dessert, out came a waiter with a plate on which were a couple of yummy chocolate brownies with candles lit on top and a "Happy Birthday" message written in chocolate (by the chef) on the plate! Thanks to FIG for a most enjoyable evening. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

My friends and I had a great meal and the waiter and waitress were very attentive, happy and helpful, even though it was very busy. We will definitely be going back there again and I will try the duck leg next time as one of my friends had it really enjoyed it. Having said that I would recommend the sticky beef ribs.

What a great place! The staff were so friendly and helpful and made us all feel very welcome. We really enjoyed the evening and there was no rush to get us out when we were finished. They even volunteered to change the chairs to more comfortable ones for the older members of the party. Some very personal and kind touches. Food was very good. Our only suggestion for improvement would be a better choice of starters - perhaps incorporate some things from the bar menu? so that they could be shared.
We'll be back.

Lovely place to have dinner, stuffed chicken breast was over rated, no walnuts taste and size of it was maybe half a breast. Lamb salad my friend had looked superb

Enjoyed the chips and starter. But the steak we had for the mains was dry - over cooked and the mushroom sauce was very thick. The dessert was very nice.

First time diners at Fig Restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Meals were evenly spaced out between courses. The ceviche starter was delicious as were the breads. The rib eye steak was cooked to perfection and was accompanied by a delicious garlic mash and salad, topped off with a light jus sauce on the side. Stuffed chicken breast with sauteed potatoes and broccoli cream was a winner also. Creme brulee was delicious - Nice setting - overall a very enjoyable experience. Well priced. Highly recommend.

Freezing night in Christchurch so lovely to slip into the warmth with cheery fire at Fig Restaurant with our friends.
We have enjoyed First Table experiences there previously and thoroughly enjoyed the excellent menu and food and hospitality.
Many thanks Fig and many thanks First Table for making these nights so memorable.

Lovely dining experience. 3 of us had steak. One of our group said his steak was chewy and he didn't enjoy it. But apart from that all of the other food was delicious. Honey was a lovely waitress and they gave me a cake for my birthday which was very thoughtful. Overall a great night. Thanks.

We have decided to make Figs as one of our regular dining place. It has a nice ambience and there's plenty of parking.
We had a salmon, chicken and lamb mains.
They were cooked perfectly and had good accompaniments.
Again the staff were friendly and helpful.

Last night we had some food at Fig restaurant. The staff were nice and friendly. However the food was a disappointment. We had two nice entrée Dumplings and Ceviche, surprisingly the ceviche was served with nachos from the supermarket.After we did order the main dishes and the waitress said: the vegetarian curry will take 30 minutes to be prepared which we agreed.When the mains arrived to the table, firstly the meet portion suppose to be 220gr but the sizes were smaller than that and poorly accompanied.Secondly the vegetarian curry was small portion as well, in fact it was dry and tasted like flour and poorly presented, we certainly could not finish the dish.The desserts were average but coffees were good. Sadly we would not came back again, or recommended to anyone.

The service and food were amazing! The staff were absolutely lovely. For entree we had the homemade garlic ficelle which was very tasty and enough for two people. For mains we had steaks with sides. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the sauces tasted amazing. Dessert we had the chocolate marguise and the butterscotch creme brûlée. Both were extremely delicious. Overall we had a wonderful time, the service and food were 10/10

Having dined at Fig previously I knew I was going to enjoy my meal. The menfolk both had steaks and they were not disappointed. The ladies had chicken breast and although it was a little on the luke warm side it was delicious. My only real disappointment was the dessert. It was Crème Brulee which was lovely but for the warm coulis that was on top of the sugar. Of course it didn't crunch like it should because it had started to soften with the heat.
