    I am in my sixties and I have never had a worse experience in a restaurant in MY ENTIRE LIFE. In fact, after speaking to the manager, he said he would bring me his card and he never returned to the table. I was treated rudely and one of the servers refused to serve my party. The treatment I received from Fig and Olive was awful beyond words. Unless I am fully compensated, I will never come back to this restaurant and I will never recommend it to anybody. It's one thing to receive rude treatment from a server, but it's another thing when the General Manager is totally unhelpful and unavailable. Dr. Marc Shatz

    Been here quite a few times over the last year and our experience has been consistant both here and in their NY branch. Never had a bad dish here and anytime something wasn't quite right they've made amends and then some. We usually start off with the crostini's and then an appetizer(love the crab cakes and the truffle mushroom croquette is unique and a "must try!"). Next I had the Bouillabaisse which I thoroughly enjoyed. Not a traditional one but excellent nontheless. My spouse had the Chilean sea bass which she loved and we finished things off with the Tasting Plate for dessert. The food was, as I've said great, but our waiter John made this an experience to remember with his attentiveness and upbeat attitude. Go, you won't regret it!

    My girlfriend and I had a fantastic lunch here! Unfortunately we skipped the crostinis but will need to try next time as they had loads of tasty sounding toppings. We shared the roast chicken which was so moist and delicious plus the vegetables and beautiful mixed baby potatoes served with it had such great flavor. We paired that with the brussels sprouts and they were heavenly. The spice on it was so good, we asked our waitress about it and she went and spoke to the chef. Apparently they didn't even know, it was so secret. So she brought us a little bowl of it and we were sitting there dissecting it while finishing our delicious bottle of Hartford Chardonnay (which was only $65 and IMO a pretty decent price). Great service!

    This was a great place to go, Love the ambiance, The tree in the center of the dining room surrounded by booth seating is very comfy. Love the fresh pumpkin decorations. Everyone enjoyed their meal. My husband and I shared the whole fish served table side. It was cooked perfectly in a bed of fresh herbs with crispy skin, would order it again. My son had paella and enjoyed every bite. It had a yummy saffron rice with lots of fresh seafood. Everything about this place was perfect.

    This place was terrific. We were seated promptly according to our reservation. The food was AMAZING - the the waitress gave fabulous recommendations. Every course we said wow when we took the first bite.. and then the next.. and the next... We requested that our desert come before the main course (as consuming milk products after eating meat is contrary to our religious practices), and the kitchen and waitress were very accommodating to this unusual request. All in all it was a truly magical experience.

    We ordered 2 appetizers which were great. The house bread came in 30 mins after seating and after requesting it 3 times. Beer wasn't cold enough. Service was poor. Main entree fish was dry. Chicken on the quinoa salad was dry. Overall having paid $120 for 2 people, not worth it.

    All of our courses were solid dishes. Standouts were the octopus and scallop appetizers. The lamb chops and sea bass entrees were also good. However, if you don't like your meat and accompaniments smoked, do not order the lamb chops, as they are served under a smoked-filled glass dome. The concept is nice and the smoky flavor was good. Portion size was also good. The sea bass was meaty with nice flavors. The portion appeared small, but it was filling. However, for $39 each, there are other restaurants on par with better value. The apple tart was good but a little burned. The chocolate souffle was very rich, but the molten center was undercooked. But, since we were celebrating, one of the desserts was comped, which was very nice!

    We come here frequently as our "go-to" for an out-of-neighborhood, memorable dining experience. Fig & Olive Melrose Place knocks it out of the park every time. Our guests are always thrilled with the evening and most importantly, the food. The Cucumber Cosmo starts things off nicely, the tartines, zucchini carpacio, cheese board and olives are outstanding, and everything else to follow (if you have room) is delicious and best served with a follow up of the chocolate pot de creme. Let's make that "several" pot de cremes.

    Everything was great! Tony our server was friendly, informative, funny and brought us out a free sampler desert. The only tip I'd recommend is get a bottle of wine if you plan on having more than 2 glasses...the pours are very small if you order by the glass. We had a great night and I'd go back

    It was our anniversary and we were excited to dine here- but it was a bit disappointing. Portions are small, although everything we had was delicious. My husband felt like he hadn't had enough to eat when we left. Biggest shocker - $24(!) for a glass of Chandon Rose champagne, this was ridiculous. Best things we had- olives, olive oils (tasting), grilled lobster (in the lobster salad), branzino. Not sure we'd come back, not enough of a powerful experience, it takes a lot to get us to become repeat customers.

    If you're looking for a vibe-y LA restaurant without the young crowd, this is the place. Great bar scene without being obnoxious, great atmosphere, beautiful decor, and spot-on service. The food always seems to be a solid 4, with room for improvement in flavor development, but the overall experience is definitely a 5. The restaurant is always loud and energetic -- perfect for a Friday or Saturday night out.

    Fig & Olive has become one of my favorite restaurants since moving to LA. I have eaten there multiple times and taken a cooking class there with their head chef. It's a great, romantic spot with delicious food. The highlights of our most recent meal were the beef carpaccio, the filet mignon which was cooked perfectly rare, and the yellow fin tuna, seared and served over an eggplant and tomato tapenade with fingerlings. I am continually impressed by the quality of the service and the food. The olive oils are an added bonus- I bought two oils and a fig balsamic vinegar for my own home- cooking. We'll be back soon.

    We enjoyed a nice evening at Fig and Olive. Had 3 crostini's (which were good), Seared scallops (favorite of the night), tuna crudo (lacked flavor/bland), lamb (excellent), filet (good). Service was good, our waitor was very nice and made recommendations, only service complaint was 1 course seemed to come out too quick, and they pulled our plates/silverware out from under us while we still had that food left from that course, luckily the food was on a shared plate in the center so we were able to still eat it, though we did feel rushed with that course. I think fig and olive is overpriced, there are many other LA restaurants we will visit before considering to return here.

    This is a wonderful restaurant. Sorry it took me so long to try it. We both had salmon which was delicious. We also had some vegetables to start, artichokes which were really good, brussel sprouts so amazing hard to describe and we had the beef carpaccio. That was a little bland and needed some seasoning or oil or something. We had wine a pinot noir, which was good but room temperature. Wish all good restaurants kept their reds at a lower temperature. The restaurant has a wonderful feel to it. Our table was a little close to the others, too close for my taste. The waitress was good, but then they over sat her and she was "eating the weeds" as they say in restaurant business. But she still did a rather good job. Pricey.

    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.

    It was my girl friend's birthday and we made an 7pm res on a Sunday night. We were told our table was not ready for our reservation and invited to sit in the bar area. It took 10 minutes before someone came over to serve us and another 10 minutes to get our drinks. We were finally escorted to our table 1/2 hour after our reservation. Our waiter and the food were both very good.

    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 went here based on a Groupon deal I'd found, and had a great experience. Rather than limit you to a few dishes, you had a nearly free reign on the menu to make your own 4 course meal. From both of my visits to this restaurant, their bruschetta's are amazing. Largely non-traditional variations, there is everything from prosciutto to mushrooms and seafood options. In addition to the food, they do a great job on their cocktails. I got a traditional martini which was very well balanced - not overly alcoholic or briny. For my main entree, I had the lamb chops which is brought to the table under a glass dome that's filled with the aromatic smoke of a smoldering rosemary branch.

Great place! I look forward to visiting again :)
