The crostini's were absolutely delicious and a great way to start off the meal. The Fig and Olive Tajine was incredible... I could eat it every single day. Truly a great meal!
We both took the Prix Fixée menu but ordered different things so we could stophalf-way through each course to swap plates. Everything was delicious but special mention must be made of the mushroom croquettes. Next time I will just order several of those!
Place had great ambiance and I returned for the second time in two days on business. But I was served the Fig and Olive Chicken Tangine (the only menu item with the restaurant’s name on it) raw not once but twice. Raw chicken. Took too long while the rest of the group dined. Gave up after second time and switched to the truffle risotto. Management comped my meal, but seemed too little too late for a $300+ meal for 4 that I paid even with that comped item (risotto for raw chicken). Shame because place is nice and everything else fine but raw chicken twice. Apologies given didn’t seem sufficient.
Second lunch at Fig & Olive. First was good, this time, not. Wilted, soggy greens, over-cooked, dry chicken. Really unimpressive and for the prices it was a major disappointment. I’ll think twice before I’ll choose to go there again.
Great! Can’t wait to come back.
The service was great! We had to modify reservations a few times for our large party and Lauren was so flexible. The wait staff was very patient and the food...amazing! Can’t wait to go back!
While we generally enjoyed the food, our server was AWFUL. We repeatedly had to wave our hands for his attention and despite indicating that our meal was to celebrate a birthday. We finally ended up leaving early and having our dessert elsewhere where we could celebrate. Definitely NOT worth it.
Great ambiance,cozy seating,tasty food and attentive waiters...Plus nested among designer boutiques ,is the recipe for success .
As my friends and I entered the restaurant, we were immediately drawn by the cozy, and inviting ambiance. We sat down for about 10 minutes until we flagged someone down to acknowledge our presence, even though there were three waiters standing right in front of the table. So I can either assume the hostess did not notify the waiter about the new table, or business must have just died down from peak hour. Either way we tried making eye contact with all waiters, and that was an utter fail. My friend finally waved a waiter down, who ended up being out waiter, and mentioned he was training. He was very professional and nice. The food came out after about 45-50 minutes, and it was room temperature, good flavor, but I would have liked for my steak to be hot, not warm. The cocktails were amazing as well as the decor and ambiance. In conclusion, I may return, but only for drinks since the service and food was pretty mediocre. I guess I had higher expectations for Fig & Olive.
It was like a dream restaurant. The mushroom crostini was remarkable. Those Rosemary Lamb Chop changed my taste for lamb. And I cannot leave out the perfect 👌🏽Mediterranean Mule!!
Great place for a date and the food was really good!
2nd time I’ve been there and had another fantastic meal! Only thing I would change is lowering the volume of the music and perhaps change the genre
Facilties and service was spectacular. Apps were great, but the main dishes were just good. Had the Lamb Chops and they were a little tough, though tasty.
Very good food. Great decor. Loved our waitress accept service was slow
Really enjoyed the dinning experience at Fig and Olive, the service was amazing as was the food. Will definitely return on our next trip to DC
Very cute location, not crowded at all. Bottomless brunch definitely worth it, they constantly refill your glass.
Call me old fashioned or lame but having dinner on a couch with a dj in the middle I don't think goes well with fig and olive
Saturday Brunch at Fig and Olive was a wonderful start of a fun day in DC. It is located in the upscale CityCenter DC. Modern decor, warm colors and comfortable seating makes the experience very enjoyable and relaxing. For a starter, my husband and I shared 3 crostinis, the mushroom, shrimp and prosciutto (my favorite), all wonderful. My husband ordered the bread & pastry assortment and from the prix fixe ($29) I chose the mushroom croquette, poached egg with cured salmon and pot de creme. Beautiful presentation and very flavorful. Great ambiance, friendly staff and our waiter was very attentive. Looking forward to dining there again very soon.
I love this chain of restaurants. NY, DC - love them both. Food is excellent.
Had a great meal with colleagues. The food was fresh and high quality, and the crostini appetizers had a great mix of flavors. Would definitely recommend to others.
Fun vibe, with bright and open seating. Good happy hour snacks and great cucumber cosmo!
The food, at Miya does service were all great. Small plates; good for tasting. Negatives: small portions and expensive. We like trying different foods, but thought that for the size of the portions the prices were out of proportion.
Came a half hour early for happy hour and had some great cocktails, wine, and crostinos. Service at the host table, bar, and table was all excellent. We had the mushroom croquettes, truffle risotto, and seafood paella. All was perfect. The downstairs is more of an energetic lounge, while the upstairs is a more soothing, refined dining experience. Cute view of the City Center decor.
We had a fantastic time there, it was our anniversary, the service was great, food was perfect. We drove 2 hours to get there because we heard it’s one of the best restaurants in DC. We truly enjoyed the on the house dessert with a small candle they brought us for our anniversary , it made our night so special. I strongly recommend the New York strip and the cocktails. Thank you Fig and Olive for making our night a memorable one.
Always love coming here when my friends and I feel like dressing up and treating ourselves for a special occasion.
Been here for lunch many times and loved it. Took friends from out of town on a busy night and it was a complete disaster. The waiter was rude, the food was terribly prepared. I had 20 small pieces of penne for my $22 pasta bowl. Awful consider we spent $400 there.
The crostini is wonderful! I would recommend all of them. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was easy. Books, lanterns and lot of windows. It looks over Palmer lane which reminds me of the shopping district in Amsterdam. I would definitely recommend
The food was very good with a fun atmosphere. The noise level is pretty high, so not a good place to go for an intimate meal. The service was a bit slow to get our orders in, but once the order was made, the food arrived in a reasonable amount of time.
This was my second time at FIg & Olive over the past few months, and it did not disappoint. Everything was excellent - service, drinks, food. From the crostini to the mains to the desserts, the food was delicious. At the last minute we brought my 9 and 6 year olds because our babysitter got sick, and they loved the food as well. I cannot wait for my next visit!
It’s not a tasting menu restaurant like those we have several of in DC because you get to choose your dishes, like tapas, and if you like variety and extremely well crafted, unusual dishes you can’t go wrong here. We have tried most of the Signature Crostini on the menu and haven’t found anything we wouldn’t order again. The Chef’s Selection trio deserves special mention: the locally prepared foie gras is the best we have had this side of France and the Iberico ham is just like what we found in Spain, not too salty and not at all stringy!
Of the Sharing & Appetizer list we loved the Roasted Cauliflower and the Burrata Heirloom Beet but found the Sea Scallops relatively ordinary. The Mushroom Croquette was the star from this list, however, and we had to have more of those!
We also tried several items from the Main Course list on the other side of the menu and found them all fresh, delicious, and very well prepared according to our tastes. However, when returning to the restaurant we decided to stick to ordering from the front page. The variety and quality are astounding and will keep us coming back over and over again!
The space is beautiful and well lit but it gets a bit noisy when it is busy, so we tend to come early. The downstairs bar is well stocked with great views of City Center from the West windows. The upstairs seating is a bit quieter and more conducive to a leisurely focus on the food and conversation.
A bit pricey $$ would recommend they play up their vegan dishes a bit more.
You have to order the manchego crostini, and the seafood in the pealla was awesome.
Great spot, food and service. also a cool location
Good food great atmosphere
Absolutely delicious food impeccably served.
Took some friends visiting and we had a splendid time. The food, service and ambience were winners! We order, hamburgers, salmon burger and and steaks. Everyone was happy with their meal!
The food was AWESOME, but the Service was HORRIBLE. It looked like our waiter was helping a lot of tables. He forgot what bottle of wine we was ordering, and had to come back ask 15 mins later. The waiter never asked how our food was or checked in. For a bill at $175 for two people, the service should be extremely better. Also they should have a bathroom on the 2nd floor, to make it convenient for guest. Also i find it odd, that a i received my sparkling water, in a White wine glass, something new to me ..i guess?
Excellent menu and service. We specifically asked for a quiet table (hearing problems for one of us) and were seated in a great corner.
Second time dining there. Outstanding.
