Diner Reviews
  • "I dined here last Sat. (8/23) and came back on Monday (8/25) to treat my sister-in-law for dinner. I was raving about this place to her since I was very impressed with the food, drinks, service, and ambiance on my prior visit. The place did not fail me. My sister-in-law loved it as well. Now my brother wants to come back for Sunday brunch!"

  • "Great venue and great food however felt rushed through our meal and had to wait an hour for our table even though we made reservations."

  • "Took my friend here for dinner last Sat. She was visiting from Paris so I wanted to impress her. I picked the perfect choice! The food was great. I especially loved the yellow fin tuna carpaccio. They also have a great wine list and our server was very knowledgeable and gave us great recommendations. I love the place so much I am coming back here again tonight (Mon.) and this time to treat my sister-in-law for her birthday."

  • "We had an amazing time at Fig & Olive. The food was DELICIOUS! The ambiance was perfect. Our server was super sweet and made us feel super special, as we celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. We can't wait to go back!"

  • "The prices here really aren't justified based on the service and food selection. We did enjoy the scallop and the crab appetizers. They were delicious. We ordered the Lobster Risotto which was good - not great and the portion size was small. The lobster salad had nice pieces of lobster sitting atop a bowl full of arugala which was not trimmed so you were left eating tough stalks. The service was good but not great as you might be expecting. The salad was served but there was no offer of pepper (there are no salt/pepper shakers on the table). The cocktails were served and one glass came with lipstick. Lastly when you enter this restaurant, the design is breathtaking but there is typically a line to checkin."

  • "The food here is delicious. However, the bar scene is terribly noisy. It may have been because we were there on a Friday night. We'll try another evening, as the good is terrific, as is the wine list."

  • "If you make early reservations you will be seated along the wall where only one person has a view. If there is only two people when you make reservations ask to be seated either in table 352,355,307,or 316. Our server was nice enough to tell us this for next time but I don't think we will be going back. We asked to be moved to one of the many open tables and they said no. Also, do not ask to make any changes to a dish, the chefs are very touchy. I ask to sub the cusscuss with plain noodles and they said no. The best thing about the place is the service staff. Megan D. was great."

  • "We had a reservation and got there few minutes before . First we were told we need to wait 10 to 15 min. After the first 15 min we were told we need to wait another 10 to 20 min. When I complained to the manger all of a sudden she told us that are table was ready. So basically we sat after 20 min. Since we had gone there for my daughter's birthday and I had mentioned it in my reservation and even told the manager I was expecting that at least they do something about it after all. But no. Nothing. So, I would rather not going there any more"

  • "Overall, I gave our dinner 4-stars despite bad dessert. We got seated promptly and our waiter was great. The drinks & appetizers were excellent - the Jamon Iberica was to die for; also great tuna. The entrees were equally excellent including the Branzino, Boullabaisse, Risotto with lobster, and the seafood paella. The problem was with the dessert course. We had a Crème Brulee Cheesecake which looked nothing like a cheesecake. It was almost runny and had the consistency of Greek yogurt that had been torched on the top to look like Crème Brulee. We also ordered the chocolate soufflé which came out overcooked and without any soft gooey core. The manager was great to quickly take it off our bill, but they definitely need to work on desserts."

  • "Friends had recommended this restaurant. I took a group of 5 for a celebratory work related lunch. The atmosphere, food and service were amazing. We needed to keep our lunch to 1 hour and we got in and out--but never felt rushed. Everyone said they would come back--for cocktails, a date night, or a holiday lunch."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "Good rep, Anniversary dinner. But nothing special here. Good: sauce, entree flavors, scallops, waiter, front desk, Staff friendly. Dessert-panna cotta-peaches, COMPd-anniversary. Sweet. Ungood: wanted before-dinner champagne. But they serve dinner at bar - completely blocked. "Skinnied" between two diners & ordered-they were insulted (jerks). Maybe have a place to order a drink? Very loud. Decor dull; Lobster salad $26, "arugula, cucs, toms, onion, celery"-oops, no-cucs, toms, etc-big pile of arugula-3 pieces of lobster. Asked for additional vegs. Waiter:"oops, I'll fix that"- Nice, but repl salad: no vegs, just arugula. But nice waiter.. sides below avg (kale over-salted, mashed pot crumbly,dry-picky, but true). Not go'g back."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "We enjoyed a wonderful dinner of fresh crab and tomato, lobster salad and a whole sole. Delicious Mediterranean cuisine minus the ocean. To do it right, this restaurant is expensive, special occasion, but totally worth it."

  • "Back again! We love Fig and Olive, it's our new favorite! We always have a great time!"

  • "Last minute reservation with my daughters for brunch while shopping. The restaurant is gorgeous and the food was amazing. One of my daughters recommended it because she has been for dinner and she said today was just as good. Everyone on staff there was so kind and the manager, (Hugo I think) was extremely sweet and helpful as well. He took time to chat with us and convinced me to come in with my husband for dinner. I am so glad we did not skimp on the crostinis! They made the meal!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I have been here for dinner and the food was delicious, however brunch was horrible. My quiche came out cold. The eggs we ordered had no salt. The pizza my son ordered was made with nasty dough. It was disappointing as I was celebrating my birthday and was not happy about the food."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I love this place but last time the place was just dead!! Took some friends there to show them how great this place was, but of course that night had to be dead. Music was just not good and there were too many unoccupied tables. Hopefully next time will be better."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Great food and drinks. Definitely a place to be seen."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Phenomenal experience! Everything was delicious! We had the seafood tower appetizer. Yum! Crostinis are yummy! Especially the crab one and the mushroom! I had bouillabaisse. It was like lobster bisque with amazing seafood in it."

  • "Great location but food not that good. All 4 diners in my party agreed."

  • "My wife and I dined at Fig & Olive for the first time this week. The food was fantastic (I had the best lamb chops I have ever tasted). The wait staff was knowledgeable and attentive. I am going to use this place for an important business dinner next week."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Food was okay to good, not great... for most of our dishes. Services was terrific. The restaurant is very nicely decorated. The noise level was very high and made it very difficult to communicate. Not a place you want to be to have a quiet conversation. Good experiance."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "A beautiful restaurant with gorgeous decor and ambiance. Four ladies ordered the prix fixe lunch. Delicious. Signature salad was a stand out. Service was a bit slow and soup had to be returned as it was served lukewarm. Highly recommended for a leisurely, special occasion lunch."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "The first time we were there it was GREAT so anxious to go again and bring friends. However, I was embarrassed because the food was just OK and we were never offered their breads of olive oils---why??????"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Dramatically appointed, each room elegantly designed and warmly received. Excellent service, main room the best, have tried patio as well, great for lunch. Amy was our waitress and very attentive. Wait staff is holding back trying to take your plates away, much better timing. Only negative is $6.00 to valet. Way too expensive, park at Fashion Island for free!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Decided to come on a Monday night, the Restaurant is usually really busy on Fridays or Saturdays when I usually go. This quieter crowd was a nice change. Got a table outside which was great. Our server was very nice and he did realize we wanted to take our time. Unfortunately when we were ready to order drinks, then food, it took what seemed like forever to get someone's attention. It also took a very long time to get our drinks which was a bit frustrating. The cristinis were spot on as usual. The pastas we got were both incredibly al dente, a bit too al dente even. Overall I've had many other positive dining experiences here. Just slow on a Monday night maybe."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Three of us went for lunch. We shared 6 different crostini to start. They were not memorable. One of us ordered salmon requesting medium rare. It was well done. They did offer to bring another but we didn't want to wait. The scallops were way too salty. The steak salad was okay. On the plus side, the service was excellent & the restaurant itself is beautiful. I would not go back for lunch but I understand dinner is better. Might give that a try."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Eclectic modern menu. The tastes were new and fresh. We tried lots of different things and shared. The wait staff was attentive and numerous. Maybe it was a little pricey for some of the dishes but overall a great experience."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Excellent Branzini for 2 and goat cheese ravioli. All 6 crostini we tried were delicious. The waiter didn't return to explain the dipping oils - he said he would be walking us through them so this was disappointing. Also we all wish he had been more attentive to our table: drinks - lost out on a round because he didn't come back until it was too far in the meal; appetizer - would have ordered another for table since it takes a while for Branzini to cook; steak - ordered medium by the diner but was medium rare. By the time he came back to check on things, she didn't want to send it back since others were far into the meal. Wondering if less attentive b/c we're young? Maybe, but we like fine dining, have $, and tip well when deserved."

  • "Came to fig & olive on Saturday night. It was really busy and the night scene was really happening. Bobby was our server and he was awesome. Although the patio was really busy he was able to take great care of us and spend time explaining the menu in detail. He is very personable and really knows how to make people feel special. Definitely one of the reasons why I will be coming back. I ate the the chicken tajine one of his recommendations and it was one of the best chicken dishes I have ever had. The dj which I was not aware of is there 3 days a week was playing great new music which my girls and I love. Thanks Fig & Olive for a great night we will see you soon!"

  • "We drive by this restaurant all the time as we live in Newport Beach and always see the fanciest cars outside of it. One day we decided to have a date night without our child and to try it out. Firstly, do NOT bring your children here. The food was amazing and delicious but the price is quite high. For 2 people we spent $150 (4 drinks, 1 app, 2 entrees, 1 dessert). This place is very hip and trendy and all of the rich and fabulous are here to see and be seen on week nights. Cougar central... women on the prowl for rich men EVERYWHERE. That part was a little overwhelming. The restaurant is pretty loud and it was hard to have an intimate romantic dinner here. Glad I tried it but definitely will NOT be returning here with my husband."

  • "It was our first time dining in Fig & Olive and it was a very good one. We've loved the food the most but everything else was very good too. We will definitely recommend it to our friends and we are looking forward going there again."

  • "Having dined at Fig and Olive in Melrose, we looked forward to trying the Newport location with friends, and were delighted. For and service were excellent. Be aware, however, that the club scene descends at 8pm, which a noticeable shift in ambience and decibels. Plan accordingly."
