I had booked because we were in town celebrating our daughter's recent engagement (which I noted on my reservation form) and the waitress knew about it and offered us a complimentary toast on the house. Very sweet of them!

The food was an hour delayed and came out cold and it didn't taste good. We wouldn't go back.

Some of the best service I've ever experienced. The food was delicious. The presentation of the lamb dish made me wish I had ordered it. Very fun tasting of olive oil from different regions in Europe. Excellent cocktails.

i was waiting for a date and was completely ignored until my dining mate showed up. also, i wanted to be seated at a booth and was offered a seat between two full tables and when there was ample seating. host was annoyed that i asked to somewhere where i had space to put my coat... food was good but service was disappointing. my waitress was great but i was disappointed in the host.

Beautiful restaurant, good fine dinning , portions were not small as I was expecting. Right in downtown which makes it very convenient if you are around that area. We would definitely go back.

Temperature was a little warm in restaurant. No it's hard to control with all those windows...but perhaps cool down a bit for Sunday brunch. Food and service excellent !

Nice ambiance, great service but very forgettable food. We had a “price fix” option, appetizer of tuna tartar which was on top of dull mashed avocados covered with greens. It lacked a kick and salt and pepper. None on table. Carpaccio was not seasoned and mixed with a sweet glaze which completely overpowered the dull and unseasoned meat. The halibut was good but again on top of very dull polenta and drizzled with sweetened glaze which overpowered the rest of food. The best part was the dessert and very good cappuccino. Sorry but will not be back.

The food was excellent and the inside of the restaurant was beautifully decorated. We shared two dishes (roasted chicken and osso bucco) and an appetizer (roasted carrots and sweet potatoes with hummus). Everything was delicious. The menu is seasonal so we will definitely be back to try other dishes!

I would recommend FIG & OLIVE TO A FRIEND because of the good food and knowledgeable waitstaff. I would caution that friend that the host and hostesses give the impression that you are doing them a favor by coming to the restaurant and they'd really rather not be bothered having to deal with you.

I have been here many times, each a great experience. This time I had the worst service. I brought guest here from out of town, and expected the experience to be as great as I have had before. We had 930 reservations, we were sat immediately on the 3 rd floor. Our server brought us water( blonde guy ) didn’t ask for our drinks or apps. He then took 18 minutes to come back to our table for drink orders ... he walker by several times and avoided eye contact. Then he came up and said “ya I’m busy it’s Valentine’s Day”and gave us attitude. He took our drink order, came back after 10 minutes and my drink was incorrect, when I mentioned it he acted as if it was inconvenience for him.. his attitude continued till mid dinner. It was very disappointing and quite frankly embarrassing that I brought my guest there l.

The service and cocktails ended up being the only portions of the night that were deserving of the price. The poorly cooked seafood, mediocre dessert, and odd music selection really put a damper on the evening. Will potentially try again, but definitely not for a special occasion or holiday.

It was a enjoyable Valentine’s Day dinner. Selected special menu was provided and with high quality. In the mean time common day menu was also available and one can choose their desired food. We ordered a steak and it was the perfect medium rare.

Went for a date night during restaurant week and had the fixed menu. Delicious from appetizer to dessert. The hit was the truffle mushroom risotto. I added 5 grilled shrimp to mine. Probably the best risotto I have had so far! Worth a try!

The restaurant is very pretty with a great ambiance. Comfortable seating with a couch/pillows at the table. The food was delicious and our server was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Do yourself a favor and try all the crostinis!! Will definitely return.

I absolutely loved the blood orange olive oil- so delicious!
The Tomahawak for two was simply delicious and the wild mushrooms an excellent compliment to the meal.

The first time I tried this restaurant was during restaurant week. I am glad I gave it a shot! The server was awesome 👏 the steak dinner came with mashed potatoes and steamed beans. The cheesecake was the perfect proportion. Everything from the hostess who welcomed me to the waiter to the goodbye at the exit provided a great experience! I will definitely go back!

We had a party of seven there for a business dinner and everyone absolutely loved it. The wine selection was outstanding and one of my clients found her very favorite bottle on the list. The menu was fantastic and the presentation was so nice that several of us took pictures. The service was very attentive, they treated us like VIPs from start to finish. Very special and memorable evening.

Took about 30 min to get seated, but the staff was incredibly apologetic and gave us two(!) free apps! Would go back for sure.

We had reservations at 8 but did not sit down until 8:30. The manager was awesome and made up for it by sending a round of drinks and an appetizer. However, the waitress did not get the memo and the remainder of our dinner took 2.5 hours to finish. She was polite but the service was slow and just inefficient.

Food was very good and not too expensive so it might be worth another shot.

The food was delicious: the crostini, the meals, the desserts… And the service was excellent. The atmosphere was contemporary, and it made for a wonderful anniversary dinner.

Done with Fig and Olive. We used to go there all the time but haven't been for about a year. Went spur of the moment on a Friday night at 8:00 and we were surprised how easy it was to get a table. There were two of us. We split an appetizer (roast cauliflower) , ordered salad to split (which they forget to bring) and then two entrees. The steak was overdone and flavorless. The chicken tangine was so salty I was up all night drinking water. My husband had two drinks, I had a cocktail and two glasses of wine. Bill was $300 for 2 entries and cauliflower . Waiter made up for the forgotten salad and brought us a dessert, which was nice, but we are not dessert eaters. When we left around 10 the place was empty. Striking on a Friday night in a "hot" neighborhood, but now we know why.
