We were there for the prefix dinner on Valentine’s Day! We were at the bar, when they said our tables were ready. They made us wait and carry our drinks from the bar downstairs to our seating area upstairs. The guy who took the coats from us was slow and made us wait for a good 5 min hanging it on the stand while we were standing with drinks in our hands, waiting to be seated. He took us all the way to one end and said sorry, but looks like someone else is seated there. He then found a spot quickly for us. We never got the red rose that all other tables had. The drinks were below average. We complained about our experience to our server Sufa who was taking care of us. He immediately brought it to Sophie - the office manager’s attention. She was very sweet and attentive towards us. She took off the drinks that we did not like and got us some drinks made. They were good. She apologized and ensured we had a pleasant experience. Thumbs up 👍🏻 for them to try and make up for our experience. Food was okay. I expected it to be better based on the reviews I read online.

Came here for valentines prefix dinner and pairings. Ambiance was great and our waiter was respectful. However, we were rushed the whole time. Even our waiter apologized when other staff would bring out food/wine. Could barely enjoy the food or drinks because halfway through the dish, the next set would be coming out. Next thing we know, we’re practically chugging down the wine & food to make room and not really enjoying the experience. I would consider maybe coming back but my date said it’s a hard NO.

Our party had a great time at Fig and Olive. My sister was visiting from Wisconsin with work colleagues from Tucson and Las Vegas. They arrived before me and had a comfortable seat in the lounge. Our server was so helpful with the menu suggestions. We had a variety of the crostini, truffle croquettes, and drinks, and then shared the whole branzino, truffle rissoto, mashed potatoes and spinach with figs. Everyone left with a wonderful impression of the restaurant and I was proud to have chosen it. Our server even chose the pot du creme and cheesecake for us to share with cookies for dessert.

Fig and Olive is a lovely place to chat and dine. The staff and service were on point and appropriately attentive. We loved the bread and olive oil--delicious and the cheese platter, while overpriced was a delight.
Our entrees arrived cold, but were still relatively enjoyable. This happenstance was a bit confounding as the restaurant wasn't remotely crowed.

There was also an issue with our OpenTable reservation, while I had the confirmation number--it didn't appear on the restaurant's computer and after a bit of discussion, we were seated.

Would I recommend Fig and Olive? Absolutely- but with the proviso that despite the ambience and lovely waitstaff -- the food might miss the mark and reservations may be lost.

I like Fig & Olive. Their dishes are light and tasty and I can always find something on the menu. The service leaves something to be desired. Refilling water and coffee was non-existent (we had to ask multiple times for each refill), getting someone to take our order and then our check took longer than expected (and they weren't that busy). Even just waiting for someone to clean the table before we could sit down took an inordinate amount of time, despite multiple staff walking back and forth past the table. I do like F&O's food, but I think it will be a while before I go back based on my last experience there.

Second time going here only because someone else picked this place today. Caveat is that I’m gluten free and used to working around menus. That said for a menu of salads, soup and the like, I had two options: a $15 bowl of soup (w/o the croutons) or a $25 salad. Ridiculous prices for pedestrian

Fig and Olive is a beautiful space with good service. The food is beautifully presented as well. But when eating the food, it basically tasted average. Not bad, but nothing special either. I would have expected better for a high-end restaurant.

Fig and Olive is not only aesthetically stunning but also delicious! We ended up here on a whim and they accomodated 4 adults and 2 kiddos without issue. The food is so fresh and delicious and our waiter was very professional and attentive. I certainly would come back again!

My pervious experiences were good so I decided to try this place again for the restaurant week. Restaurant week course menu was a disappointment. I didn’t like the taste of main salmon dish,but salmon was cooked well. I recommend getting their regular menu.

We came for restaurant week. The chicken that we had was extremely dry. We thought maybe it was precooked and had been sitting around. Neither of us could eat it. However, we didn’t want to bring attention to ourselves so we just had it packed up.

The salmon was undercooked and made me sick. The wait staff was incredibly rushed and it was obvious that they were trying to get us in and out as quickly as possible.

The ambience, overall design, layout, and features are beautiful (along with the great location in City Center). Also, there were variety of delicious dishes that were elegantly presented. Service was great (well staffed, even during a busy lunch period with events going on). Overall, it's a great restaurant and I highly recommend.

Not the quality that was expected. Mushroom croquettes did not have mushrooms. Carrot ginger soup was room temperature lemon chicken did not have a lemon flavor and salmon was ok but not memorable
This was restaurant week but verified food was on regular menu.

I've been to Fig and Olive twice with girlfriends. Both times the food was excellent. While the service was good I would not necessarily call it attentive. The mixed drinks were ok and expensive.

While the sea bass was excellent, the prices at this place do not match the quality. An unremarkable paté of foie gras (not actual foie gras) was $33. And that turned out to be the cheapest thing we ordered. We didn't know in advance because obnoxiously the prices were not listed on the menu We thought, "how bad could it be?" Well, pretty bad it turns out. We left feeling we had been taken advantage of after forking out $300 for a dinner for two.
