Fig & Olive - Meatpacking
As always, outstandingThe new spring menu is absolutely delicious! My client and I absolutely loved it- and service, as always, perfect! Love it here...5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSo refreshingFig & Olive - Meatpacking is a refreshing restaurant that has a light and airy décor. The food is really good and the service is excellent. This is a perfect place for Sunday brunch. The drinks are creative and good and you can't go wrong with the Crostinis!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great location for F&OWe've been to two of the other Fig and Olive restaurants in the City and have never been disappointed. The Meatpacking location definitely lived up to the high standards that were set as well. We treated Mom to brunch for Mother's Day this year and it was wonderful. The food and drinks were great and we especially appreciated that we were not rushed due to the hustle and bustle of the crowd given the day it was. Try anything with the white truffle oil in it, you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atompshere. Good food.Great atompshere. Good food. This isn't your five star restaurant but for the price, very decent experience. Servers seem to be overbooked with tables though. We had to wait a long time for our first course or for someone to check with us on drinks etc. Luckily the energy level in the place and the DJ made waiting easier.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbiance, Food, Serv... wait.Firstly, Fig & Olive is wonderful -- a beautiful dining room, outstanding food... but like so many NYC restaurants, there is no focus on service. I don't know if our server said one word to us, actually -- perhaps a few to get us started. A server with charm, personality, great suggestions and flexibility makes the whole experience come together. Our server this past Sat. was missing these qualities. I will always go back -- but don't fall into the trap of aloof, elitist service, F&O! You're a gem. Add some personality to that pretty face.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFive StarExtraordinary service as usual!
See you all tonight5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Food was incredible- mushroom croquettes are a must but all the appetizers are amazing. Branzino was filleted table side and was incredible and everyone else I was woh enjoyed their food (party of 6). The service was great and atmosphere is gorgeous. Outside seating in warm weather is a plus. Reservations recommended after 7:30pm5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphereFig & Olive was a great surprise since we were nearby with no plans, good service, food (we've had the Veuve Cliquot menu) wine options. Great atmosphere!!!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe LOVE F&O!!As always, my girls and I had a wonderful time at F&O!! The floor manager, Diane, is amazing and orchestrates the seating of walk-ins, reservation holders and late-comers with great ease, professionalism and energy. She always makes us feel so welcome and she is definitely one of the reasons we come back again and again. Not to mention the amazing, fresh, delicious dishes that were served by the friendly and wonderful waiter, Eddie.
All in all, a wonderful time was had by all. I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant to one and all. We are already planning our next visit!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWay to noisy for my likingWay to noisy for my liking on weekend nights! But great for twenty something's5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood eats!We enjoyed our recent visit to Fig & Olive...the service was exceptional and the food was interesting and quite good. The olive oil tasting was quite interesting. We all liked the food, but I don't think it was so exceptional that we would be itching to go back again next visit. I would recommend it to a friend, but it would be 3rd or 4th on my list. The ambience was good, but not as rich/interesting as some other places in the neighborhood.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI'd go backbeautiful space, delicious and unusual food, but limited menu and pricey4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurantsOne of my favorite restaurants in the Meat Packing District.

A few days later, a manager of the restaurant contacted me and invited me in for a complimentary dinner in the hopes of changing my mind about the restaurant . . . and it sure worked! This past Saturday I had dinner with a friend at Fig & Olive Meatpacking and we had a wonderful time! The restaurant is gorgeous. The staff are all so welcoming. And the food was exceptional! We ordered a fig and cheese crostini and the crabcakes as appetizers, and both were very good. The entrees are what really hit the mark! I had the lamp chops and my friend had the filet mignon, and we both practically licked our plates! I'd definitely recommend for dinner!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for FoodiesI recommend an early dinner before it gets too crowded. Very active bar scene. A must to make reservations. The apps are wonderful. Go hungry and walk out full. I never even got to the entres, the apps are great. You will need a couple of visits to sample it all. I'll be back!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTremendously enjoyed everyTremendously enjoyed every minute of my dining experience.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMet up with school friendsMet up with school friends based in Asia that had not seen each other since high school, so we needed a place that was lively but not too loud. The ambience was perfect, the food delicious, and the wait staff made sure it was quite a pleasurable evening. The place was hopping (actually mobbed by the time we left) but not suffocatingly so. And the sea bass and lamb chops were just right. And we loved our waiter (wish I'd remembered his name!)!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food but noisyLoved the food, service was just ok, noise was very high and seating was very close.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, absolutely perfect!As always, absolutely perfect!

I love eating out in Meatpacking but it certainly has its fair share of restaurants that are just overhyped celebrity scenes with actually pretty poor food (I'm looking at you Abe & Arthur's). Fig & Olive was a very pleasant change from this trend. Good menu (it helps if you really love olive oil) with plenty of simple/well-made dishes. Service is great and helpful. Great atmosphere and pretty relaxed. I'll go back to this place.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Fig and OliveThis restaurant and selection was perfect for the occasion of my wif'e's 50th birthday. It was perfect and she really appreciated the atmosphere and service provided by the establishment. The menu selection was very good and the quality of the food excellent, whilst not being expensive. If we were locals the Fig and Olive would very quickly become a favourite.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dining experience at F>he dining experience at F&G was pleasant and relaxed. The staff managed to seat us on time during the busy Easter season. The service was excellent , the food was delicious and the ambiance was great. My friend actually asked to to see a copy of the weekly lunch menu so he can plan his next visit.
I highly recommend F&G, so if you are looking for s great spot to celebrate a special occasion or you just want to enjoy a wonderful lunch, stop by and the Tesm will take care of your dining needs3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDependably Outstanding!First time we went for brunch. It was absolutely perfect. The menu is filled with wonderful light and tasty food selections. The staff is upbeat and knowledgeable. Overall it was an outstanding experience. I sound like a commercial!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really had a wonderfulWe really had a wonderful time. Our server "Bronco (sp?)" was knowledgeable and had some really great recommendations. My Wife and I shared the Lobster Salad, Crostinis, Lobster Bisque, and Tuna Crudo. For entree we shared the Branzino. The whole table-side element was really great.
For Dessert we shared the tasting, not sure who "Andrew" is, but it was delicious. As well as the Marzipan Cake. That was very good as well.
We'll definitely return.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved everything about FigLoved everything about Fig & Olive. Great cocktails, ambiance and food, and reasonably priced. All around great place for a Saturday night out.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent pasta, great serviceI love this restaurant. Every time I go, I try a new dish. This time I tried the Fettuccine Shrimp Mascarpone, even though I rarely eat pasta. Absolutely amazing!! The sauce had great flavor and was not heavy in texture. Of course, the pasta was high quality along with the jumbo shrimp. Even though my friend and I were stuffed, we ordered the dessert sampler which is perfect for a sweet ending. It has a little bit of everything and is great for two people to share. Also the staff is very attentive to your dining needs. Our waitress was very informative and had a great personality.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friends and I LOVE F&O….My friends and I LOVE F&O…. The waitstaff and bar crew are focused, attentive, professional and friendly. The sad thing is we always order the same dishes, as we love them so much: tuna carpaccio, the fig gorgonzola tartlet, truffle risotto, and pumpkin sage ravioli.
I guess we'll just have to go back again to try the other dishes. Can't wait!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMakes the perfect night out in NYThis was my second time eating here and it was just as wonderful as the first. Not only is the food fantastic but there service could not have been better. I have brought visitors from out of town to eat here and this has been there favorite restaurant each time.
