Delicious, lovely lunch. We had a beautiful table with comfy chairs in front of the floor to ceiling window overlooking Oak Street. Food was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our unrushed and leisurely lunch.

I think the food is very good but my friend (who’s not a big fan of healthy/quasi-salad food) wasn’t impressed by much. The price is extremely reasonable though - the fact that we can get 6 crostini by 22 dollars just proves it all. Overall the expertise is great and I’ll bring more friends to this restaurant, especially for Saturday brunch :)

It was great food. Really enjoyed everything except Lamb chops. Not the best chops i have had. Chef was kind enough to give another try to make them “medium rare” still over cooked. Otherwise everything from octopus to cauliflower to pot de creme were awesome

Overall, the food and dinner was very good, however the pre-dinner bar experience was about as bad as it gets. The Bartender was the most incompetent and rudest I had ever experienced: First, we ordered two Old-Fashioned cocktails. The tall, male, bearded bartender served the cocktails, which had a thick, icy froth on top. Not what an Old-Fashioned is supposed to look like. Reluctantly, I tasted it and aside from its frothy iciness, it was excessively sweet. I nicely asked the bartender if he had shaken the cocktails, to which he responded, "Yep - is there a problem?" I responded that I had never had, nor heard of, an Old-Fashioned cocktail recipe that called for shaking, rather than either stirring or built directly in the cocktail glass.

He became very defensive and rude, impolitely asking if we wanted another one. I responded that it was also too sweet for us, so perhaps we should try a different cocktail. So I ordered two Negronis - requesting Stirred and UP in a rocks glass. After an excessively long wait, he brought the drinks and they were both served on the rocks - and very clear/watery, as though he left them sitting with ice far too long. I didn't complain about that, but reminded him that we wanted them served UP in a rocks glass. He became very agitated and walked away, sneering to a colleague "Jeeez!" as though we were being so impossibly difficult. Making matters worse, the Negronis were made without Vermouth - only Gin & Campari - but at this point, we didn't want to further inflame the situation, so we paid the bar tab and proceeded to wait for our table near the host stand.

Wow! I was truly delighted with the entire Fig and Olive experience. The restaurant is beautiful and elegant, yet very comfortable. The food was delicious, I had the salmon and my friend had risotto accompanied by a Pinot noir. We both ate every morsel then shared an apple tart for dessert. While it was not a bargain, the food and the service and the ambiance were well above my expectations! All great!

As you walk into the restaurant you feel a special vibe, lively but elegant; bright but cozy.

Lunch options are varied and plentiful, with many items that are shareable.

Very nice wine options, delicious desserts and coffee.
I had the house salad, which was greens, gorgonzola, Manchego, figs, nice dressing, and I
added some grilled shrimp.

Service was impeccable. Very invited to go back

The staff didn’t share that we were sitting at the bar waiting for our reservation. So we were asked if we even had one after waiting for 20 minutes. The bartender was excellent and our service from our waiter was excellent. So it made up for the mixup at the beginning.

I wanted to like the food more. I got the Sea Bass which was ok, but nothing to write home about, and outside was dry. The brussel sprouts were terrible. They were too large to be good, and the core or hard areas not removed. They should have only used smaller more tender ones.

My friends and I ate at Fig & Olive before an evening charity event. From the notable wine list, to the variety of signature crostinis, to the entrees, everything was exquisite. The service was also top-notch. The only thing I didn't like was that they made us wait until each person in our party arrived before they seated us. Other than that, I'd highly recommend. A great place for a special occasion, birthday, group dinner, or the like.

Good experience except for the hostess who seated us. She was completely uninterested and annoyed by our request for a more desirable table, despite the fact that the restaurant was only half full. She begrudgingly moved us to another table but only because we insisted rather out of any sense of good customer service

I decided to explore Fig & Olive to celebrate my friend’s birthday and my approaching new baby. The ambiance and service were great! The waiter was extremely attentive and appeared knowledgeable. The food offerings were tasty but there were technical flaws such as over cooked shrimp. Overall, I would go back for a casual outing but it would not necessarily be my first choice for a celebration.
