Nice, casual place to eat – I went here for the first time and had a very good experience. I think you usually have to order and pay up at the counter before you sit down, but they weren't busy, so the girl behind the counter had us sit and she waited on us. She was very friendly and attentive. The food, although a bit bland, was tasty and healthy. Our food also came out very fast...almost a little too fast. lol We're talking literally about 2 minutes after we ordered. I guess that means the food is made up ahead of time and not made to order, but if you're in a hurry this is the place to go! One thing I didn't like is that they didn't have salad dressing options and the one that came with the salad was too spicy for me. They should warn people about that. Overall, I'd definitely go back when I want a quick, "fast food" meal that's tasty and healthy.
We found hair in our food & their attitude was terrible – My husband found this hair and lost his appetite.He politely went to the guy working the front, and told him. the guy replied, "So?" My husband then said he'd like his money back. the guy said "over a HAIR???" My husband, in shock, asked the guy "what would YOU do if you were me? would you eat this with hair in it?" The guy replied "Yes" that he would.
What happened to customer service? what happened to apologizing? the guy reluctantly gave my husband his money back, but they've lost a customer, and that place was a favorite. Their food is good, yes,but you don't treat customers like that.
Very Friendly! Owners and staff are the best – We hold a business meeting at the Red Fig once a month and we appreciate how welcoming they are to our group staying for one and a half hours! Red Fig owners and staff are the best and their food is healthy and delicious! Thanks Red Fig!
owner is a rude rude person!!!!!!! bad customer service – well if the food is as nasty as the owners attitude then i wouldnt even step threw the door of this place...we use to go all the time until i got a mouth full of bad words from the owner and now im telling everyone not to go.....should probally me a bit more polite to people in front of your restaurant....good luck now bumblekiss behind them is an amazing place to go
Excellent bento, salads, curry, and specials! – The best bento around. Everything tastes fresh and made-to-order. The salads are big and tasty and anything off the grill is excellent. Make sure to try the curry! The atmosphere (an old craftsman style house with a huge sprawling outdoor patio with lots of seating) is comfortable and welcoming.

Great Healthy Bento – I've eaten at the Red Fig many times over the years and I keep going back. I love the option of having brown rice, which I always order and it's cooked perfectly, as is the chicken on the bentos. The flavors are always great, not too strong nor too weak and I love their wasabi salad dressing.
Inventive bento – The Red Fig's menu is creative and diverse--this is the only place I can think of where you can easily satisfy a Japanese food craving and a Thai food craving and a healthy food craving with a single entree. I had all three cravings, and the Red Fig's Thai Peanut Chicken Curry bento plate solved my problem. The brown rice it came with was probably the best I've ever had, the curry was spicy and tasty, and the chicken was pretty much fat free, as well as moist and delicious. And the salad came with wasabi dressing--neato! There were many similar items on the menu, as well as more meaty dishes, such as the delicious blue cheese burger my husband ordered. And the service was fast and friendly. PS--there's air conditioning, so plan to eat at the Red Fig the next hot summer day.
Super cheap awesome bento – Every time I go to Red fig I am pleasantly surprised. The food is always better than what is expected in comparison to other bento places (the teriyaki sirloin bento is SUPER tender), all of it is very fresh, and a great value for what you get. I espscially recommend it in summer, as there is ample patio seating, and your dog can sit outside with you.
Great food and service – A great place to get healthy food that tastes great. The service is top notch too. It's fast, friendly and they seem to really care about their customers. I love their chicken salad.
Great Bento – Bento! Made when you order??? That's right. Tender chicken, perfect veggies, and rice I can only dream of making. Healthy too??? What's the catch? None, except you have to go to the Red Fig and enjoy. They have a great deck too. Forgo the snobby Packing Crates of the world and go face to bowl with a great lunch or dinner. My favorite is the Chicken Panang with it's snappy peanut sauce for about $6.25. The people watching is also a great desert.
