    On this occasion, I was there on a date. The staff accommodated our need for a quiet table and was wonderfully polite in not interrupting conversation. More, the surrounding tables changed over twice during the long evening we spent there, and no one pushed up to clear the table. Great service.

    We always love this place. Food consistently great. Even though it tends to be noisy. But sit against the back wall, that's better. It is beautiful, especially during the day, when filled with light. Great private room too. Our server was very attentive.

    We enjoyed an great bottle of Spanish wine, had mostly starters like assorted cheeses with fig jam & olives of different variations & preparations, octopus, sea scallops, truffle mushroom croquette that was to die for, beef tartar and traditional Jamon Iberico. Finished off with some excellent dessert wine and were a little too full for comfort ;) Amazing experience.

    The food was excellent. The server was very poor. Every course was extremely rushed and was brought to us before being finished the prior course. We were not told of any specials. After dessert he simply dropped of our bill and walked away. He didn't ask if we wanted another drink or coffee etc. My wife commented "It was like he didn't even want us here". I would have been less rushed at Taco Bell. Our reservation was for 7:30 and we were done by 8:30.

    Our appetizers arrived way before our cocktails. None of the food dishes were timed correctly in arriving at the table. The waiter constantly had his 'favorites' in attempts to increase the size (cost) of the order. Plenty of other restaurants in the neighborhood.

    The ambiance and decor was great. Prefect for an afternoon lunch or brunch. The drinks were made well but could have used more alcohol. The food was not up to par with the price tag for the food. Portions were fair not so generous but fair for this style of restaurant. I would not come back due to the quality of the food for the price.

    They seated us upstairs right next to another table very little privacy too close to others. The view wasn't good. I probably would have liked it better if we had been seated downstairs. Noise was loud hard to hear. Food was ok not bad but not wow. I just had a much higher expectation and it was a bit of a let down.

    There are many better restaurants in Los Angeles and I don't understand why Fig & Olive is so popular. It is a big restaurant and it was full on Saturday. The food is average and the service is poor. I saw a waitor yawn like a hippo while escorting a couple to their table. Our waitor was friendly but not very competent. We are never coming back.

    Service was slow & our dinner dragged out to about 4 hrs. It was only okay because the company was fun and the food was amazing, but it was not what I would expect at a restaurant of this caliber. The waiter also argued with us on a complaint we had (One friend ordered a drink and asked for tequila to be replaced by vodka...when the drink came, it was obviously tequila. When we asked the waiter, he would not believe that it was tequila, he kept arguing that he personally saw the bartender pour it and it was vodka. Anyone who tasted it could tell, it obviously was not. He ended up replacing the drink, but at an establishment like this, with what we paid for a nice dinner, we should not have had to argue with the waiter about this).

    Crostini, 6 for $21, was the best value for the price -- stupendous. The entree we had, truffle risotto, was tasty but not to the same extent; it did not come close to justifying a $26 price, particularly when the service was average at best.

    This was our first time to dine at Fig and Olive and it will not be our last. The menu is unique and everything we ordered was beautiful prepared and delicious. The service was spot-on as well. This is a restaurant with great energy and ambiance which makes for either a romantic night out or a great place with a large group of friends.

    Food is fine. It felt as though the chef heard about all of these different "techniques" and "flavor profiles" on The Food Network and tried to see if he could do them. He could not. Also, if you are going to tout that you only use olive oil in your restaurant and how great the olive oils are, then they should be good. All three olive oils brought out to our table had really off tasting in a bad way. Is the place horrible? No, but just don't expect much for a big portions and a big bill at the end.

    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!

    I really like Fig and Olive. I usually go during the week and have a great time: food is delicious, menu varied and service superb. Chicken Tajine, Beef Carpaccio, Salmon - all great. The set menu for $45 is a great deal with dishes I love. The salads are large and can be split or have as a main dish like I did last Saturday. My only disappointment when we went Sat with our group of six was that it was packed - expected on a Sat - and it was so loud with people talking and laughing yet they felt compelled to turn the music way up. It was hard to have a conversation. It really does hamper the evening. You are eating this lovely meal and half the table can't hear what the other half is saying. Turn down the music and all is perfect

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.

    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.
