The bar & lounge are buzzy with our happy hours and late night DJ on the weekends while the Wine Room is an accessible area perfect for an effortless get together before an event at the nearby Capital One Arena.

The DC restaurant week menu was disgusting. The choices on the menu were not satisfying at all. I expected better from this place.

A fabulous Restaurant Week experience! Each of the three courses was perfect. We both had the spinach salad with applewood bacon (our favorite) and gorgonzola; the subtle dressing was made with sherry vinegar, honey and mustard.
The waiter was attentive without being overbearing.
We won't wait for the next Restaurant Week to return.

We arrives at 5:30 and 45 minutes later we still had only one drink and had to ask several times about a second. We had the crostini which is excellent and salads and entrees but because it took 2 1/2 hours we couldn’t stay for coffee and dessert as we were about to miss our concert. I also noted that we were celebrating a birthday and the hostess said oh by the way Happy Birthday. There were a lot of servers but the seemed busy with a big party or not trained. Maybe short staffed but honestly if someone had just said that was the problem we would have understood. Great location.

I always like Fig & Olive and was disappointed when they closed the one in NYC close to the harbor. I was delighted to find this one in DC and it did not disappoint for wonderful food flavors and good service. Food was healthy, fresh and tasted great. They could work on the drinks. Martinis should not be served in champagne glasses and a lemon drop martini should not be served in an aperitif glass. Easily forgiven with the wonderful hospitality, excellent food, great location and friendly staff.

The cocktails were the only thing good about Fig & Olive. I have been to Fig & Olive before and the overall experience has really fallen. The food was mediocre for what it was priced at and we were sat upstairs where the ambiance was really lacking. Will not be going back. There are much better places in DC.

My mom and I had the last dinner at Fig and Olive from our girls trip in DC, food was really good. The hostess was very sweet and gave us a very nice table outside by the fountains and the waitress was very kind to take a picture of us to leave for our memories. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

We had a wonderful meal at Fig and Olive DC. We started with the crostini - a selection of 3. The forest mushroom with truffle and artichoke was our favorite. My partner had the paella and I have the bouillabaisse. Both were prepared with a stunning presentation with flavor to match the appearance. A must visit restaurant when in DC!

Was disappointed to be seated right next to the service station at 6:00 pm in an empty restaurant. Workers talked loudly the entire time we were there. Had an amazing experience there in December. This time service was still excellent but food was barely mediocre. Boulliabaise was over salty with about four ounces of broth. Paella was gummy. Very disappointed. Have heard food is off and on. Bar scene is great and lively. Very loud when crowded.

Food was tasty, but original salad came out without any toppings. Took a few minutes to get our servers attention, but he happily replaced our salad when we did. Overall good food, a bit pricy, and suggest they add another server upstairs because there was only one and he was doing his best during a super busy lunch rush.

My husband and I had a great experience. Our waiter was attentive and very knowledgeable of the menu. The recommendations did not disappoint for the brunch menu. The only concern that we had was when the hostess took too long to seat us, couldn’t find our open table reservation, even after I pulled it up on my phone, and then sat us at a table that had crumbs still in the seat. The ambiance and the fixtures are nice, something you would find at the furniture store RH ( in Tysons- our favorite), yet, there was dust everywhere, in reference to the location of the bottles at the bar, and the ceiling lamps ( that were beautiful, but heavily dusty). In essence of the intricacies, the waiter we had was great with the service, the jazz playing during the brunch was amazing and the Crostini’s were still really delicious. I would still recommend this place, but suggest some up keeping on the housekeeping, along with the women’s restroom. WE would probably try it again if these items were taken care of.

Disappointing experience. We ordered the bruschetta appetizer which is very expensive and totally not worth it. It was delivered by accident to the table next to us. Our server noticed and comp ‘d that table but charged us for ours which we then had to wait longer for. We ordered salads- there were 3 of us. We had an inexpensive bottle of wine. Our bill came to $200. Totally overpriced and so not worth the $$.

Great food, ambiance, and service. Brought my wife here for brunch as we celebrated another year of marriage. Only thing that bothered us was that another patron brought their dog to brunch and was seated near us. Other than that, we really enjoyed our time here.
