Great selection and overall I highly recommend dining here5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Mothers Day EverI decided to bring my Mom here for an early Mothers day lunch/brunch. It was perfect from the get go. I had gotten slightly lost on my way there, which was stressful, but we were greeted with a smile and the host brought us out some mimosas to help calm me down. The food was absolutely delicious from start to finish. My Mom has been raving about it ever since.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstandingWith a former chef from Patina, and a former sous chef from Bouchon, one can easily understand. Go -- and enjoy the prix-fix only menu.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!I took my in-laws here for a celebratory dinner and we all had a fantastic time. From the server to the wine to the dinner, everything was spot on and my in-laws were impressed. I would go back for anything occasion, even just a regular week-night dinner!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMust go!This place has a great energetic but relaxed feel to it. The food was great and would highly recommend this place to everyone. The price is spot on for what they serve. In addition to their al la carte menu they also frequently have a pre-fixe menu which is normally an absolute steal!
Enjoy your dining experience.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantWent for brunch with friends to celebrate my birthday. None of us had eaten here before. Everyone was very happy with the choice. The restaurant is beautiful - tons of natural light. Service is really good. Food is great - they start you with delicious bread and a trio of different olive oils. Highly recommend the Fig Salad, everyone loved it. For brunch everyone was happy with their Crab Cake Benedict. I had a truffle penne mushroom pasta which was excellent. Blood Marys were great - spicy5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI forget the name of our serverI forget the name of our server - exceptional!! Up sold me into a Pinot Noir that was the best I have ever tasted.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIn attentive serviceGreat food, amazing diversified menu.
Service can be a bit off at times like it was last Saturday.
Waited 15 minutes while sitting a a table at the bar for a drink. Waited 20 minutes to get the drinks then immediately had to go to our table. The wine steward opened the wine I brought and poured the first round.
He and the waiter never re filled our wine glasses for the rest of the night.
All of our entrees came out a different times. Mine was on the cool side.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWOWI read all the reviews... They all said the food was excellent along with the service.... They were all correct...
I have nothing more to say except..... Don't miss this dining experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Dining ExperienceIt was our 16th wedding anniversary, someone suggested Fig and Olive. It was 25 miles from home, so we had not checked it out before. From the moment we got in, the staff was welcoming. They congratulated us on our anniversary. The waitress suggested crosti for us to try. We LOVED each of them. She brought us different olive oils to try and explained each of them. The meal was divine. I had a white fish and my husband had the tuna. We also had dessert, an apple pie a la mode. It was awesome. From beginning to end, our meal was delish! Plus, they gave us a bottle of olive oil to take home as a gift.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFOOD IS AMAZING!!!What a restaurant!
I've travelled the world & have eaten at fine dining establishments in many countries.
Fig & Olive is now on my Top 10 list.
The food was absolutely amazing. My husband & I enjoyed every single bite.
The service was top notch.
Lively & energetic ambience.

The ambiance was also wonderful. I would definitely eat here again!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPORTIONS TOO SMALLwe really did have a very enjoyable time and seeing as we have recently moved to this area we were impressed .... except for one thing. I do not think it is ideal that you leave a restaurant still a bit hungry. The size of the main courses were too small and that was disappointing. Other than the the place is great! BUT this is an important point.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Loved it - we got the groupon for it, and everything was absolutely delicious. I can't wait to go back!
The dessert put it over the top for me :)4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was ambitious and unique--andFood was ambitious and unique--and delivered beyond our expectations. We were seated in the peanut gallery--though we had reserved well in advance--but that actually proved a plus as there was less ambient noise up there4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceGreat food, great service as always. Be prepped to spend major dough, quite worth it!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service and food.Excellent Service and food.
Proscuitto Crostini and mushroom crostini amazing. They brought a sampling of olive oils to the table with their homemade rosemary bread which was also delicious along side their olives from the starters menu. Also had the scallops from the appetizers, flavors were great, but kind of small, and surprisingly less impressive that the previously mentioned items.
I had the lamb chops with eggplant and goat cheese gnochhi and the dish was amazing and brought out hot, not warm but hot. The other dish was the paella, also good, but the lamb chops definitely stood out.
For dessert, tried the chocolate souffle, creme brullee cheesecake, and desert crostini. The creme brulee cheesecake was the most balanced flavor-wise4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSince the restaurant openSince the restaurant open I have been many many times with my husband and friends for both lunch and dinner. Usually the food is excellent but part of my dinner was just okay. It was my girl friends birthday. The young man who was our server was outstanding!! His wine suggestions were excellent and the service was 5 stars. We decided to do the pre-fix menu and order the crostini's which were fabulous, as always. The appetizer beef carpaccio was heavenly, however, our entrees were below average. I got the ravoli and it was less than room temp and the pasta was tough and not good. My girlfriend did not enjoy her dish at all but the dessert was good. I did not tell our server that we were not happy with our entrees.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding as always. GreatOutstanding as always. Great ervice and remarkable food. Love the crostinis.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a lovely dinner at FigHad a lovely dinner at Fig & Olive.
