A word from Fig & Olive - Uptown
Savor the Flavors of the Mediterranean Region
At FIG & OLIVE, each dish is prepared with a special olive oil. Our selection of Extra Virgin Olive Oils include some of the finest olive oils of the Mediterranean region. FIG & OLIVE brings you authentic, fresh and flavorful ingredients, simple yet refined dishes, the health benefits of the olive oil and the Mediterranean diet, and antioxidant quality of figs & olives.

“FIG & OLIVE Kitchen and Tasting Bar, leaves no doubt about its Mediterranean loyalties. The chalk-white stucco walls evoke the region, and the menu is dominated by dishes prepared with olive oil” (New York Times April 2005)

We have selected wonderful wines from the South of France, Spain and Italy to accompany your culinary journey around the Mediterranean region. Twenty six wines are served by the glass so you can travel from the Provence, to the Tuscan and to the Rioja regions.

Diner Reviews
  • "Went for restaurant week and the menu options were a really good deal (unlike many restaurants that give you food not worth the prix fixe price). Our group of 3 ordered 6 crostinis (highly recommended!). Two got the fig and olive salad that they said was good, and I got the salmon tartare which was nothing special, but good enough. Then one got the salmon which she finished, one got the lamb which he finished, and I got the risotto which was stellar. All were good. Dessert options are nothing exciting but a good ending to the meal. Overall it's a great vibe, a solid menu with something for everyone, and fantastic service. Our water was always full!"

  • "We came for restaurant week which is always hit or miss - they did a wonderful job of offering a nice selection of their menu and portion sizes were not too small which most restaurants tend to skimp on during rest. week. Everyone was very happy with their meal. We'll be back! Only reason I gave four stars was we had an 830 reservation and did not get seated until 850, we didn't mind but other diners may."

  • "Food is top notch. Fresh .well, seasoned. Light and interesting. Their truffled mushroom soup is to die for. Homemade bread and croutons. Their olive oil. Love the tuna tartar. Excellent service and management. Make sure to buy their truffle oil to take home."

  • "To be honest, I was expecting a lot when I went to this restaurant. I wouldn't say that I was disappointed, but I think the food could have been presented better. The service was outstanding and I very much enjoyed the olive oil tasting to start. Thanks, Fig & Olive!"

  • "Worked 2 blocks from fig and olive for 7 years and have never eaten there. We decided to try something different and took our co worker their for her birthday - she too had never been but always wanted too- the food was delicious, the staff was very friendly - overall a great experience."

  • "Worked in the area for six years and always wanted to stop in. Decided to have lunch here during restaurant week. The food was amazing. Everything had great flavor. Restaurant was packed around 12:30pm and the appetizers took a little while to come out but other than that, all was well. I had the red quinoa salad, shrimp penne pasta."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We enjoyed our lunch very much. The menu was most interesting and much broader than is usual for Restaurant Week. We were unsure of our number of guests, and that guest changed her mind about coming more than once, but our servers were very patient with the changes. I will be happy to return there at any time."

  • "I dined with two friends at a 7 pm reservation. The food was good (as always), but I was surprised by the pushiness of the waitstaff to get our order and push us along at breakneck speed. I have dined here several times before, and never felt rushed. This was new. All three of us ordered appetizers and they cleared my friends plates from the table before I finished mine - this is horribly rude and unprofessional for what is considered a well run dining establishment."

  • "What we had was ok, but neither of thought we need to return unless we are in the neighborhood and need a quick dinner. My crab and tomato appetizer was quite good, but the paella we both had (although good) was more like risotto. And chintzy: 2 shrimp and 4 mussels, one of which did not open but they served it to me anyway. Meh"

  • "I've been to several Fig & Olive locations and you always get what you're looking for - great food and fun lively atmosphere. I was 3 for 3 with my crostinis - crab, octopus and burrata. Topped off with truffle risotto. Definitely be back!"

  • "Good food and good service and, unlike the meatpacking version, it is quiet and pleasant and one doesn't have to yell to your dinner guests across the table due to noise. Food was delicious. Slightly pricey but I highly recommend it."

  • "We thought that maybe we were "lucky" on the first try so we went for a second time and were totally impressed again! Their mushroom Tartuffe(sp) was great, AGAIN and it's worth getting again! My fiancé had a poached eggs benedict with spinach and apples (the cheese sauce was great). Not sure if I would go for the zucchini appetizer again...but it was still good! He also ordered a great drink made with a white wine spritzer. We recommend this place and no doubt, will go here again and again. I will plan to order the same dish as well! It's that good!"

  • "The mushroom fusilli pasta dish was fantastic. No skimping on the grated Parmesan cheese. The salmon and mango salad with chicken was also very good. Great place to eat and it was well worth it. We will be back and I will be getting the pasta dish again. Too good..."

    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "just before the astonishing onslaught of MacBeth just a few blocks up, we slipped in for a pre dinner smattering of small bites. Wonderful. Especially loved the very thin apple tart topped with a dollop of ice cream."

  • "The waiter seemed to forget about us. My friend's dessert didn't arrive. We had to ask for it and we asked for the check at the same time, as we needed to leave. It took another 15 minutes to get it and pay."

  • "$38 Prix Fixe was a great value. Enjoyed the three olive oils, but ran out of all three before getting through a single piece of bread. Chicken dish was eclectic and delicious at the same time."

  • "Fig & Olive is hands down my favorite restaurant in NYC! I've been coming here for many years and this evening finally got to show my friend everything I had been raving about. I love their prix fix dinner menu, it allows you to get a complete meal, along with desert, at a reasonable cost. My friend had the truffle risotto which she loved, very flavorful, and I tried the riviera salmon with asparagus and cauliflower puree. It was excellent! Cooked to perfection. If you are looking to try some of their cocktails I recommend the raspberry Bellini which was a great sparkling wine and their sangria. Be sure to also get their crostini's for an appetizer! "
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "We've been to other locations of fig & olive and loved the drinks and food, however this location does not hAve a liquor license due to zoning issues. On top of that they were out of both sangrias when we got there at 8:30 on Friday night which forces customers to buy an expensive bottle of wine if they want to drink. This is highly suspicious IMO. This location is also much smaller than the other fig & olives. I can't comment on the food because we decided to leave before ordering. "
