    We had a pleasant evening with friends, the food was well presented and cooked, the atmosphere is stylishand & cozy, comfortable and not too formal, a bit too noisy for the target. Good idea and fully appreciated is the Mediterranean oil tasting but presented and served in an anonymous way, the overall quality of the bread is not correct for presentation quality & types, "smart" is the wine card but too much marketing-oriented, increase the average quality without raising the prices would be appreciated by many.

    My recent business lunch at Fig & Olive was outstanding. The service was impeccable and our waiter was knowledgeable without being overbearing. His suggestions from the menu made for a great meal and were much appreciated. The kitchen is turning out amazing food and the overall experience was wonderful. I also appreciated the fact that the service was constant but unobtrusive, something that is very hard to find in Los Angeles.

    I took three friends to Fig & Olive on a groupon. Our server was generous with her time and helped us figure out how to order per the groupon rules. Her suggestions were spot-on and the food was terrific. We were seated in the back room, next time will request the main dining room. Will definitely return.

    This restaurant is clearly a good one, with a decent menu, and good service. But their tuna bruschetta was made out of canned tuna! Really? Plus, it didn't really taste very good. I think this restaurant needs to reconsider this item.

    Our experience at Fig & Olive was fantastic. The food was beautifully presented and delicious and the portions were ample. The house cocktails were inventive and well balanced. The service was delightful and the ambiance is trendy and elegant at the same time. A bit loud, but hard to avoid in a popular place.

    We ate at the Fig and Olive on 52nd Street in NY last month and enjoyed it. Hoping for the same experience, we went to the Melrose Place site. Relevant to Open Table users, I booked the reservation fewer than two hours before we wanted to dine. There were plenty of times available on Open Table even though this restaurant is supposed to be in demand. For our Open Table reservation, we were seated in the back in a cramped table. There were plenty of other tables in the back, let alone in the front dining area with all the apparently beautiful people; i.e., poseurs. I could have asked to change the table but I wanted to see if the service would mirror the table placement. It certainly did. The service was slow and inattentive.

    With the Group On Deal, we were expecting to be treated as second class citizens. However the service was impeccable, and each food item was delicious. From the crostini, where all three were great, to a salad and an appetizer where both were large and beautifully prepared, we were happy. The main courses were excellent, and actually came as complete plates, where you did not have to order additional sides. The menu prices were very high however, and if we did not have Group On, the cost would have been astronomical. I give the whole place a giant thumbs up for looks, service, food and pleasant dining, but if I go back without "a deal," we will have to be much more careful in what we order.

    I expect more when paying $75 per person for brunch. Truffle eggs were oily, my husband's omelette was dry, the buratta was tasteless served with unripe melon. Brunch meals aren't even that complicated!

    Finally had a chance to check out what all the hype was about- and it was completely true! Fun scene at the bar, great food, great décor. The crostini's were the best part of the meal. We need to go back to perhaps make an entire meal of crostini's! Wife and I had the chateaubriand for 2, which was amazing. David Gussin is an amazing chef de cuisine. Only (minor) complaint would be the service, which started off great, then when it came time for ordering dessert and subsequently getting the check, our server did a disappearing act. Had to get the floor manager to get our check. It's a common enough occurrence but we didn't expect it here, given how everything else was so spot-on. All-in-all a great culinary experience.

    Dinner started great, appetizers and salad came out quick. Our waiter was on it. We placed our order and then the restaurant got busy. Finally got our food, and every single person in the dinner party's food was luke warm. Our waiter had gone AWOL, and we were headed to a comedy show, so we didn't have the luxury to send the food back. Very disappointing.

    but our Waiter must have been new ... he seemed like a nice guy but he kept disappearing without attending to everyone's needs. Appetizers/Tapas were tasty & artfully presented (all come highly recommended!); Loved some of the Signature Drinks ... As for our entrees Our party savored the tastes of FILET MIGNON, WHITE SEA BASS PAPILLOTE, PAELLA DEL MAR, and FETTUCCINE SHRIMP MASCARPONE all perfectly prepared. Whereas, the crème de la crème, had to be the tantalizing selection of desserts! Our table selected several items to share and needless to say, there were some items where a ‘taste’ was just not satisfying enough; hence another round for some! All in all, this restaurant is Definitely worth your while!

    This was our first visit to Fig & Olive and the restaurant met all our expectations. While the hot food came out extremely salty, the staff, location, presentation mood and atmosphere made up for it. I think there was a small problem in the kitchen but that won't deter me from coming back again. Loved it!!

    We had dinner with the family (two adults in their early fifties and two teenagers, all Europeans). The food was excellent (reminded us of South of France), the decoration very nice but the temperature very cold. That's why we didn't want to stay long because we were freezing. The waitress was friendly but we quickly noted that she wanted us to order more food and so to spend more money (the higher the bill, the higher the tip).

    Really unpleasent food and unsatisfactory service. We went to fig and olive new york last week and it was outstanding. So we tried LA one week later on our USA journey, but this was horrible and the money not worse at all. Table booked for 8 was set up only set up for 6 and we had to squezze on that table. Chairs were almost broken. Service and food quality was much beyond expectations - risotto was liquid, the salads were without figs and the salmon was completly try. Feedback to manager and server did not really interest them. I would not go there anymore!!!

    Always enjoy the food and atmosphere at Fig & Olive. Good clean food and interesting preparations. Sometimes service isn't but generally ok. Had an older person in the party and unfortunately the noise level is a little high and makes it hard at times to carry on a conversion. Will look forward to a return visit.

    We first heard of this place when it was featured on TV on " Hells Kitchen". We had one of our best dining experiences ever here. First, our server Julia was over the top great. Knowledgeable, accomodating, always there when needed but never intrusive!! Food was fabulous, Branzino, lamb chops, crab and tomato salad, crostinis, and figs, figs, figs. Everywhere there were figs. Great selection of wines by the glass, great set of specialty cocktails. Great desert to finish, the chocolate soufflé was outstanding. Highly recommended!!!!

    President Obama ate here. The pre Emmy dinner was held here. Lots of hype, which can mean its not good, right? NO! It was great! Best of all, we had a groupon, so we ate like celebs but save a few bucks in doing so. I heard the paella is hit n miss. My paella tasted great but rice a bit mushy. Stephen's lamb was amazing and the smoked rosemary knocked it out of the ballpark. Amazing food and excellent service!

    Silverware dirty, Food is fair - chicken dried out and barely warm. Service was rough, no smiles, no welcome, they don't want to be there..server placed the champagne bucket on the ground instead of grabbing the 'stand' it goes on...not smart. Server not paying attention to what she's billing me on, overcharged. Was re-billed after I brought it to her attention. At the end of the day, where is the problem? Unfortunately, Poor Management is the root of the problem. Good luck.

    I was very disappointed in this restaurant. The quality of the food did not meet expectations, nor the hype from the waiter. It was also quite pricey. The best dish was an appetizer, the mushroom and artichoke crostini. A friend and ordered the Branzino for two, which was tasteless. Another friend had lamb chops which she said were quite good. The waiter was pushy, overly explaining items on the menu as if we have never dined out before. He also referred to us a "girls" or "guys" (we are mature women.) Service was spotty. With all of the restaurant choices in Los Angeles, I will not return to this one.

    My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and had wanted to try out this restaurant for a long time. The table was a small 2 seater in a busy isle. It was very noisy and we couldn't hear each other talk. The server was barely adequate, but I guess he got the job done. The positive was the meal. I ordered the lamb chops and they were delicious, my husband had the paella and it was very good too. The highlight was the chocolate soufflé for dessert. Not sure we would go back since it was quite expensive and we weren't all that comfortable. Maybe it would have been better in the back room.

    All the food was great but the crostini variety was by far the best portion of our meal. The cured beef with gorgonzola was crazy good. Entree portions seemed on the smaller side for the price. Cocktails were very good as well, but a couple of our friends came un-garnished. Not at all a big deal to me but if you're paying $14 for a drink you want to look like the pretty picture you saw on yelp.
