  • "The Restaurant week lunch menu is TO DIE FOR! Portions were huge and delicious! Definitely recommend!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Early dinner at 5:30pm, nice table near the window, overall service & ambience great. I don't eat meat very often, but decided to try and old favorite, lamb chops-medium rare. Well presented and flavorfull, but cooekd medium to well. Server gave me an option to re-do the order. I wanted to enjoy this the way (i belive & they reccommended) is ideal. Round 2 came out mostly cooked correctly, one was piece was pretty rare, and all barely had any of the flavor (hardly bothered seasoning it) as the first order. Almost bland, with the exception of the beautiful rosemary twig. Wasn't memorable enough for me to crave the food-which usually makes people return to a restaurant. May be a one-off, it's too bad. My friend said her meal was good."

  • "We have dined at Fig and Olive many times and love it each and every time we go. The staff is always so pleasant and the food is delicious. We love all the oils and always go home with a bottle. This has become our special restaurant."

  • "MMMMMM, because there are three Fig and Olive locations, one would think that they could figure out a better check-in system;needing a 12pm reservation, we arrived exactly on time, and because of space (check in is RIGHT inside the door) it was very cramped;the place was VERY crowed for sure,as it's a great place to meet up in midtown; but what do they do in winter? There is just so much of a bottle neck; also, we were asked if we wanted crostini or olives before we ordered;I said olives as I thought we would have the other for starters; they were $6 on menu;OK, but I think this should be stated; bowl was large soI said it was too big for 2 people (it was)and got a touch of attitude on this; food is very good and a really happening scene!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Great selection of cheeses perfected with figs (which I'm a big lover of) & other complimentary foods. Wonderful, tasty variety of oils w/breads served to kick off the palate. I have dined here many times & will continue to do so. Staff permits time for diners to savor & enjoy dining experience & are very helpful in their recommendations if needed. What is there not to love?"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "I have only been here for dinner in the past, but after the great food and service we had for our biz lunch this week, Fig and Olive is my new "go-to" spot for lunch too!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "The food here was really good. Lots of eclectic items and if you like cheese, you will think you died and went to heaven. The acoustics were really bad though, my dining companion and I practically had to kiss before we could hear each other. Find out when they're not crowded, and go at that time."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "We had dinner on a Saturday evening and truly enjoyed our experience. Food was very good (would particularly recommend the octopus as an appetizer; the oysters were also delicious and super fresh), quantities were just right, price was quite reasonable for the quality of the food, and the service was efficient and friendly. We would recommend this restaurant and would definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I had the lamb chops 3 crostinis(shrimp caramelized onion and one other). My friend had the sea bass and a tart. Most every thing was good. I did not like my cocktail at all."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "After a few broke down supposed "famed" meals, it was refreshing to have a nice clean meal. I would prefer they didn't have pre-made food. Even a small mom and pop place could make a filet with no mushrooms, they couldn't"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My second time at this Fig & Olive location in NYC. Good food and wines by the glass. The waiter gave clear accurate descriptions and recommendations of the food."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I was there with a group of friends. We always order for the table and share rather than per person. This seemed to annoy our waiter."

  • "i have enjoyed this restaurant numerous times in the past but this particular visit was not as good. Service was slow. having said that I will be back and hope to write a positive comment once again."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "I have been to all of the Fig & Olive restaurants in Manhattan over the past few years and have never been disappointed with the food. This time I was. The crab & tomato appetizer was very good, but while the goat cheese ravioli was tasty, the other emulsion/confit did nothing to add to the dish. And the zucchini blossoms were hard and seemed like they'd been sitting around for a while. My guest had the yellowfin tuna which she said was good, but I noticed that she had to cut out a rather large piece of tendon from her portion. In the dessert department, don't change a good thing - the strawberry dessert crostini served now doesn't hold a candle to the pistachio shortbread/mascarpone/amarena cherry version I've had previously."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Have been multiple times for business lunches. Is a great spot for those looking for an easy midtown East/West location in the 50's, and it also offers a very excellent prix fixe lunch option as well, which I always choose from as there are many solid choices available. (I especially recommend the lobster bisque and crab salad appetizer.) Portions are modest, and the service has always been right on -- polite, proper and efficient. All in all, Fig & Olive is a spot I will continue to return to."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Had dinner with family and friends (party of 5). Service was hit or miss. Drinks were very slow to arrive. Waiter answered many questions with "I don't know" but didn't offer to go find out unless prompted. Disorganized bus staff seemed generally disinterested in their work. Food was above average but nothing special. I wouldn't rush back."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I did not expect to have a Brunch offerning at 2:30 on Saturday, but we loved the option. All four adults had brunch with really yummy cocktails. The food was fresh, interesting and well plated. I would definately recommend the restaurant for foodies -- the food is high quality and Michael took great care of us."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Was able to secure a table for 9 within 2 hours of reservation. Food and service with a large group not a problem and no rush to move us on."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We had a great dinner with friends at Fig and Olive. The food is creative and the menu is inspiring. We had a cheese plate that was incredible, well priced wine and beautiful entrees. The only reason I did not give it a five of five is the branzino was dry and it was paired with baked figs halves which felt a bit clumsy. I loved the figs, but it was difficult to mix the flavors into one bit and the figs overpowered the fish."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "The food was very good with a unique presentation! Lots of great choices too which made choosing an item difficult. Portions are small and expensive though. Great place to celebrate something special or have a good, healthy meal!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We had a great meal. Enjoyed the crostini and zucchini carpaccio...perfect for a light summer starter. Our favorite was the Italian olive oil. Branzino and goat cheese ravioli with zucchini blossoms were so tasty. We ended up with wonderful desserts - chocolate pot de creme, warm chocolate souffle and raspberry sorbet. What a great meal."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "This is a very popular spot (great fresh food and fair prices) for a business lunch or a brunch, but during the week it seems overbooked. the place is overcrowded and wait times are reflective of this."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "The food was pretty good. The service was slow, to say the least. Half of our party didn't receive menus and it took at least ten minutes to order drinks and another 10 to receive them. One salad never made it to the table and the server argued about it. It wasn't worth $680."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "A group of 4 of us dined early on a Sunday evening. We had a reservation and it appeared that we were about to be seated at a nice, round table near a window but ultimately found that a group that had walked in pretty much demanded that they be seated there (they arrived at the same time as we had but were in front of us in greeting the host(ess)); we ended up with two 2-person tables pushed together and it worked out. Food was great. Service was very good."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Two weeks prior to reservation I booked a table for 10 for my cousins's bachelor party dinner. John the manager told me it wouldn't be a problem and ensured me that we would have the best table in the restaurant. The table/service/food was excellent. We ordered and assortment of crostinis and carpaccio which were delicious(especially the octopus). For the main course the waiter sold me on the lamb chops and sure enough they were incredible. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. I would definitely suggest this restaurant for anyone looking for a high end dinner experience in the city."

  • "Great decor. Good food. Lamb, tuna carpaccio were amazing. Sea food paella and shrimp in pink sauce were good. I felt rushed through out the dinner by the waiter and it's unfortunate it closes at 11 on Friday night."

  • "Our food was fantastic. Every course was better than the previous. Everything was seasoned and prepared to perfection and our server was extraordinary."

  • "The food was good, but not as good as I remembered it. The place is entirely too loud. It would be amazing for business lunches if you could actually hear who was around you."

  • "Be ready to spend $100 at lunch, but also to have some of the best small plates you've ever encountered"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Good deal on three course pre-fixe menu (mine included Fig &Olive salad, yellow fin tuna and pot de cream, all for $45 and tasty). However, Bouillabaisse offered quite a small portion with only a few shrimps and (may be, could not tell) a scallop and was not worth the price ($29). Very busy even on a weekday and with "spotty" service. We however enjoyed it."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "We are from California and this is one of our favorite places to visit when we are in New York. The food is fabulous, the wine list very good, the service Excellent. We are never disappoiunted, and always happy with our dinner experience."

  • "Located on 52nd b/w 5th and Madison this location F&O is more intimate than the Meatpacking location IMO. We passed a cool-looking bar and were seated on the 2nd floor. Service was prompt and attentive. Our waiter brought out a nice arrangement of olive oils from different countries and bread and he explained everything on tastes which was nice. We started with the crudo tasting and octopus a la gallega; both dishes were delicious. The crudo was a bit too heavy on the oil but the octopus prepared sashimi style was spot on. Entrees were the Mediterranean Branzino (well done) and the Yellowfin Tuna (medium rare). Again both dishes were very good, recommended. Two glasses of the french chardonnay washed everything down nicely :-)"

  • "This restaurant was recommended to us during our vacation in NYC. We stayed at the Waldorf so it was within easy walking distance. We had the brunch this Saturday - the whole experience didn't disappoint! The fig salad was so fresh and amazing, the omelet was delicious with fresh herbs, and oh my goodness, the chocolate dessert was out of this world! I wish we had a Fig & Olive restaurant in Orlando. I hope to visit NYC again next year and will definitely pay a return visit to Fig & Olive!"
