Great food and overall experience but it was so loud at the beginning that our server basically had to yell for us to hear what she was saying.

We eat here every time we come to Chicago. It is one of our favorites. Great vibe, decor and location. Fabulous food and amazing (but expensive) wine list. Always fun.

Service was terrible and slow. I chose this restaurant because it was my birthday and I wanted my husband and children to have a nice dining experience with me. From the moment we walked in we were not greeted. When we were approached we were asked to wait for a table even though the establishment was very empty. Once our server came to us it took a really long time for him to bring kids menus. I believe he forgot the first two times we asked. The food was not very flavorful.

First visit to Fig & Olive. Prior to coming, checked with the restaurant to see if it offered valet parking. Was told they did but it was up the block from the restaurant. Never did find the valet but was able to get a street spot. Tried a variety of appetizers, six different bruschettas, none of which were actually memorable. Main course was Shrimp Fettucine, which I thought was bland and tasteless. Noodles appeared to be from a box rather than fresh. Extremely noisy, seated in the bar area on crowded banquets. Service staff attentive and tried hard to please but forgot to bring the PInot Grigio I had ordered at the beginning to be served with my entree. Not likely to return

Fabulous food and service. We sat near the window in a casual dining area with large, comfortable chairs. The hostess suggested a wonderful Pinot Noir that complemented the chateaubriand.

We were visiting Chicago from out of town. The food was quite good starting with cocktails, the chef selection crotinis, Octopus carpaccio, and the charcuterie board. I enjoyed the wonderfully prepared and tasty lamb chops. My wife had the lobster salad which tasted a bit grassy like a freshly mowed lawn. I’m sure it was packed with micronutrients but just a bit too bitter for our taste. The pot de creme was a nice finish to the meal. The service and ambiance were outstanding.

We absolutely loved our experience at Fig & Olive's brunch. We had the opportunity to sit on the patio which was a wonderful temperature, especially in the shade. The waitstaff was both professional and fun and helped add to the experience. We had both drinks (bellinis, mimosas, bloody marys) and food and they were all great. I can personally speak very highly of the fig and walnut pancakes which were well done and very filling. I would recommend it for girls days/trips, dates, and other times you want to splurge a little. Looking forward to returning in the future!

Had an anniversary dinner here last Saturday night at 730. Put in the notes and called the day before to confirm that it would say “happy anniversary Jess” on her menu. It didn’t. We also ordered our drinks and appetizers at the same time and our appetizers came out well before we even had a drink in our hands. Lastly, after that our server requested you should order your main course because things are slow in the kitchen, even though we were in no rush. Sure enough we listened and our dinner came out 10 minutes later.

Overall I wouldn’t come back and very disappointed in a lot. I felt like i was being rushed when i spent $280 for a nice dinner. I’d get drinks at the bar but that’s all.

Why do you ask if we are celebrating a special occasion and the restaurant doesn’t mention. It was my daughters 18th birthday that night and nothing from fig and olive. Disappointed.

Have enjoyed this restaurant for a long time, but now the service is very poor, the food oversalted, over peppered, and the waiters attitude is pathetic. Will not be going back. From the amount of people in the restaurant it looks as if others have the same idea.. Just a few tourists

We enjoyed dinner with family during a recent weekend trip to Chicago. We were at Fig and Olive on a Sunday evening and were nicely surprised with food and value of the meal. Wine selection was good as were mixed cocktail offerings. Staff was attentive. Our dinner selections were a nice mix of entree salads (the lobster salad was great) seafood and chicken. We will always consider Fig and Olive for a nice dinner in the Gold Coast.

Been here many times-love it! Love the fresh focaccia and oil at the beginning of the meal, the truffle eggs are delicious, everything is terrific. This time service was a little slow but that is the first time that was ever an issue.

We waited for about a half an hour for our table to be ready, despite having a reservation and service was slow. Otherwise, great ambiance and food. All-in-all it was a great dinner and would definitely come back.
