Owner Sondra Bernstein quietly opened the girl & the fig in 1997 originally in Glen Ellen, California. Slowly people began to discover the rustic French food and the unique way of marketing and presenting it.
In 2000, she relocated the restaurant into more upscale quarters on the northwest corner of the square in Sonoma in the historic Sonoma Hotel.
Over the past nineteen years the girl & the fig has made its mark in Wine Country and has been a longtime favorite for both locals and visitors to the area. the girl & the fig continues to be featured in many magazines as well as on national television.
