Fig & Thistle wine bar in Hayes Valley, San Francisco

Melanie Wong Aug 15, 2013 09:35 PM

Directed to Fig & Thistle by the sandwich board sign on Gough St pointing into Ivy Street across the alley from the construction site, I only had a chance to peek in the windows. Early evening it seemed quite full, looking like a group of friends enjoying a glass of wine and snack items kicked back in the parlor of a San Francisco flat.

Who's tried it?

    Tried it a few weeks ago. The space is incredibly cute. We ordered a couple of roses and the server was not able to tell me definitively which was drier (one was noticeably drier) and did not offer tastes to help determine the answer (which I thought was kind of subpar service for a wine bar). The only food available was a cheese plate, which was tasty, but pretty expensive.

      Thanks for the early word. Sounds like subpar service to me too, I mean, detailed information about the wines on offer or the ability to taste in lieu of same should be pro forma.
