Loved the atmosphere and the food was pretty good, just think it might have been a bit pricey and our waiter was only okay

We were celebrating a birthday at brunch. Everything was perfect! We especially enjoyed the rose and pomegranate sangria. The birthday desserts were lovely and unexpected.

unfortunately, we did not love our experience. The service was slow and the server was not very good. The restaurant is very overpriced - especially given the quality of the food. We had a large group and the table collapsed during dinner - no one even bothered to apologize.

We love Fig and Olive. My son chose this spot for lunch to start the weekend celebration of his 18th birthday—I took him and his 3 friends and they love the food and the location and ambiance really makes them feel like they are out in the city. Consistently good food and service.

Really enjoyed Fig & Olive. Couldn't give five stars because I didn't think the food quite lived up to the price, though I did enjoy the food overall. Ambiance was nice but the place really began to empty out by 9pm on a Friday so it got pretty quiet. At 7:30pm when we were sat the place was very busy and lively. Would maybe return again with guests from out of town since it was a good location, however I am more likely to try somewhere new next time.

One of our favorite places in Chicago. Service was excellent. We were there about 5pm so restaurant was quiet. Branzino was excellent. Shaved octopus appetizer was an interesting and delicious.

This restaurant was highly recommended from my friend and I had high expectations.
The location is great, parking is little difficult but they have a valet. I requested a table by the window and I was little surprised when they sit us in the corner behind a big and very loud group and I noticed that they have open 4 more tables . Any way we diced that will stay on this small table. The waitress was relay not exceeded to have as , don't even bother to ask if we want any appetizer after we order drinks, don't even give us spoon for the dresser or ask for a second round. I also work in this industry and left her 20% tip but honestly she deserved 0!
Food was good but the portions were pretty small for the price they charge.
I will probably never comeback to this restaurant just because there are so many places out there with much better customer service.

Fig and Olive is One of our go to spots in any city. The Pot de Creme is one of the best outside of France. Love the drinks. Only complaint was that we paid 20$ for 1 side of spinach and one side of mashed potatoes- which is fine- but it was literally a cup of spinach-a couple bites each- and a few spoonfuls of potatoes that tasted like they were out of the box. Definitely not worth the money and definitely not “shareable”. Other than that, the food is good, drinks great and atmosphere sexy.

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!

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.

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.
