    I had forgotten how good food at Fig & Olive was. Was induced to return by e-mail offering 6 free crostini, and offer was fulfilled no fuss no muss. We had the manchego/fig, shrimp/avocado and crab/tomato - all simple and delicious. Went on to have the octopus and a faro/quinoa salad, my daughter the branzino. Everything was really very good and the chocolate pot de creme outrageous. Service was attentive but not obtrusive, we were seated at front of restaurant where it was very calm/quiet, and check came in timely fashion. What more could one want? We will be back.

    Had 5 pm dinner with friends and there were many people having wine and appetizers or maybe finishing lunch - all-day opening hours keep a restaurant lively. We did not have any of the tapas, but rather regular dinners of paella and lamb chops and chicken, and it was all delicious, but would like to return for the assorted small plates at the long, attractive bar area. Good coffee and desserts, and the portions were perfect for us, although I think they might be considered a bit stingy by some diners used to a fuller plate.

    We had a great dinner and terrific service. Our waiter also made some excellent wine suggestions for us. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because our table was next to the service station which was unavoidable unless we wanted to wait for another table to open up. All-around though it was a lovely dinner.

    We had a very nice Sunday brunch. The crab cake eggs Benedict were excellent, as was the french toast. Also enjoyed the fig & olive salad. Service was very attentive, with frequent refills on ice tea and coffee. Portion sizes were on the small side (e.g., very small crab cake and one poached egg). Location nice for a group of six, and not too noisy. We would definitely go again.

    Dined on 9/8/2014
    Love fig & olive, have been to all the other locations. This was our first time at this branch and it was TERRIBLE from stale bread to a wine glass that smelled unclean. The food was okay, not on par with the other locations, though. When our dessert was unavailable at the last minute the strawberry crostini was substituted with a cherry dessert without informing us. After I checked the menu and asked what happened to the strawberry crostini I had ordered I was given a small bowl of 4 sliced strawberries. It was bizarre. Our waiter, who turned out to be the manager then told us "nobody died." Extremely rude and obnoxious. Will not be back.

    I'm a fan of the Fig & Olive in Meatpacking so not totally objective, since I just love their decor and menue. The place in Meatpacking is the opposite of the Upper East side venue which is perfect, when you are looking for a place to have a nice conversation and still enjoy good food. The noise level is low if you don´t sit next to a loud group of people of course.. Where as in Meatpacking there is a vibrant bar scene, great DJ, many tables and thus lots of people talking louder & louder. During the weekend before going out I love to start my evening there. But for a soft dinner, Fig & Olive Uptown is a nice spot, which I highly recommend! Very attentive staff, the salads & desserts are so good! And the truffle croquettes, amazing!!

    My husband, daughter and I went for a quick meal at the the Fig and Olive and $250 later, we were scratching our heads. The food was very good and the service was decent....the prices were so out of line for this restaurant, we will never go back. Having dined at many, many restaurants in NYC, we are accustomed to overpaying for our meals but this nondescript, cramped neighborhood restaurant did not fit the bill.

    I went here during restaurant week and the food was amazing. Everything was very delicious, I had all of the veggie options while my friend had the steak, and no complaints about anything we ate. It did feel a bit rushed but I think that might have been because of restuarant week.

    The place is not so big, but the environment was really nice. Service was good, but it really took us a long time to wait for our dessert. The main course was not so outstanding, but the appetizer was worth trying. The DESSERT was tiny, and really CUTE!!!! Small biscuits with strawberry had good sweet taste, and the chocolate cream was sweet as well.

    Came here with a friend for restaurant week and overall we loved it. Wine list is pricey, with not a bottle under $40-$50. My only gripe besides that would be the inconsistency of the portions. My friend's filet mignon was noticeably larger than my serving. What are they trying to say?? But other than that, everything was delicious and the service was fantastic!

    F & O as i call it, its great for dates and i found the UES location much more intimate that others i have been to. My server was the worst i have experienced at F & O, but that's easy to say when service is usually impeccable. My petite filet mignon was a little dry, but overall the food and definitely the ambiance deserves its praise. The truffle mushrooms were AMAZING btw!

    The food at Fig and Olive Uptown was great and the service is impeccable. Not once did I have to make a request that my glass be filled with water, nor call the waiter over for anything, which allowed me to fully engage in a conversation with my guest. The servings are pretty small, however I was completely filled at the end of a 3 course meal. I thoroughly enjoyed the mushroom risotto and serving of thyme infused bread with 3 different olive oils. My entire dining experience was wonderful and I would happily go again; plus the proximity to Bloomingdales makes the location priceless.

    My wife and I ate at Fig & Olive during restaurant week in August 2014. My lobster bisque was quite good, but the entree of filet mignon, mashed potatoes, and asparagus was only slightly better than average. The potatoes were dry and unappetizing, and the filet was not as tender as expected for that cut of meat. My wife's meal of gazpacho and salmon was very good, however. The dessert, a chocolate pot de creme, was excellent and the highlight of the meal. The service was also quite good.

Além do serviço irreprovavel, a comida veio além de nossa expectativa, apesar de estarmos aproveitando a Restaurant Week, com menu restrito, mas extremamente equilibrado e capaz de satisfazer todos os paladares.
