Food was not very good. Salad was overdressed and simply didn’t taste very good.

The service at Fig and Olive was exceptional. The staff was very attentive and courteous. However, it was very difficult to hold a conversation with the people at my table. The noise level seemed a bit excessive and it brought down my opinion of the place. The food was very good; I ordered the fillet mignon and I thought it was perfectly cooked. The restaurant’s olive oils we found to be very flavorful as well.

We tried this for our 20th wedding anniversary and found it a fantastic experience. The food was exceptional, wine was excellent and above all the service was out of this world. We did not feel rushed at all and the staff regularly checked in how we were doing without making you feel you had to order something else or leave. It was also possible to have good conversation. There is background noise but it just tends to keep your conversation more private. I would recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyed dinner for two in lounge. Crostini are great. We had branzini and tuna entrees, which were well prepared. Nice to have an entree that includes a few vegetables and potatoes. Service was great. Will be back.

Two of the three meals ordered were incorrect. One person had to eat alone because the food Gad to be sent back and the rest of the party had to eat so it wouldn’t get cold. Sad.

Always love this place but this night started with them seating us in what was really the lounge, in low chairs and a small table disputed advance reservations. Then are waiter acted like he would get a bonus if we left in less than an hour. Food was great, but rushed service is a downer when we just wanted to relax and have a casual dinner. He was nice enough, but I hate hurried service. Still love F&O, just an off night.

I took 2 family members lthat I hadn't seen for quite a while and was looking forward to "catching up" but it was very hard to hold conversations because of the noise level. The 4 of us are in our 70's and I guess we should have chosen a quieter place. We loved the service, food and atmosphere but we all got tired of having difficulties conversing. The talking was loud and the restaurant had someone playing music which was totally unnecessary (only made everyone speak louder).

This is my third time going and it think because of their limited menu that does not change the choices are limited. I had the hanger steak and I wanted it well done and it come burned, my friends had the lamb burger and it was not that great either. I had a blast the first time I went so I was very disappointed.

I definitely understand everyone has different experiences and expectations but i'm surprise this place doesn't have five stars. This was a surprise birthday dinner for my one of my best friends celebrating her golden birthday this month. My friend is a vegetarian and since this birthday is so special I wanted to find the perfect place and I did!

Our reservations was for 5:30 PM. I thought from the website and Google they offered valet but it might be during a certain time? Either way it did not matter because there is plenty of street parking (pay at meter or if you have the parkchicago app). Luckily we found a spot right in front! When you walk in, you take an elevator up to the second floor which is the main dining area. Amazing ambiance and beautiful decor. My friend and I were obsessed with the bar and how there is a tree in the middle with lights!! It feels so warm and inviting. The lighting is very Intimate. I love that all their seats are so comfortable! Food is fresh and delicious with so many flavors! Even the food presentations is beautiful! The Culinary team puts a lot of heart into each dish and you can tell by looks and taste! Our server was Bebe and she took really good care of us, was friendly, offered great recommendations and made my best friends birthday even more special! Crowd was very diverse. There was older and young people, couples, families with kids, and groups of friends. I am not sure how it is during the week, but I recommend for dress code purposes business casual. It is a little pricey but the menu offers something for everyone and truly is worth the experience!

We had a 7:30 reservation and didn't get seated until almost 8:00 PM. When we got seated they put us in a back room that was empty but stared to fill as we sat there. The waiter was very nice but clearly had to many tables to serve. He acknowledged we were out for our anniversary which was nice but that was it. The food is good but the service does not justify prices nor did we enjoy waiting when we made a reservation. The atmosphere is really lively but once again a bit deflating when being sat in an empty quiet room. Overall I wouldn't rush back to the restaurant because Chicago has so many great other choices.

We came here for dinner and LOVED IT (none of us had been before). The food was amazing, service was great and I loved the whole ambiance. I'm so glad a few people had recommended it to me and we will definitely be back. We were there for over 2 hours and never felt rushed. The waiter explained the menu in detail and gave us some great suggestions. My only "dislike" is there's 2 toilets in the women's restroom for the entire floor! I ended up using the restroom on the 3rd floor because there was a line of 4 in front of me. It just seems odd for that large of a space to have such a tiny bathroom.

Overall a wonderful restaurant and it fits the Gold Coast perfectly!
