Sat outside on the patio on a beautiful day and enjoyed crostinis, burrata, salmon and aperol spritzes. What could be better!

Food was delicious, but our server did not know about anything on the menu. Anytime we asked how something was prepared she either read the menu or went to ask someone.

Our server, Jensen, was an amazing person. Not only was he a perfect server, but he was funny and very interested in our questions. the food was amazing...my husband had the lamb that might have been the best prepared every and I had the salmon..cooked perfectly. the ambiance is lovely with fresh potted herbs everywhere.

this is a happening place and would recommend to anyone !

We asked to be outside & management quickly set it up for us. Service was great & very attentive. Food for the 6 of us arrived together, and our waitress checked back frequently. All of the dishes were attractive & tasty. Several of us ended up in the sun, causing us to leave more quickly than we had planned, but there really wasn’t anything management could do. A nice spot for lunch with a varied menu. We would definitely go there again.

This was my second time at this restaurant. I’m from Spain and live there so when we are visiting in the my bf’s family likes to takes us out ti nice places. This time it was extra special because we were celebrating my mother-in-law’s birthday.

Anyways, I was rather disappointed with the food in the restaurant. I saw they offered jamón ibérico cinco jotas as an entrée and decided to other it because it’s the best jamón there is. I could not believe my eyes when the waiter brought the jamón...the slices were unnecessaeily thick, the color was off and the taste was really bland. This was not by any means jamón ibérico 5 jotas.

The main dishes were okay, but I was very surprised at the portions they offered for the price, especially the fish dishes.

Basically what we really enjoyed were the entrées and the chocolate cake. The selection of Spanish wines was also very poor, no good wine was on the list...

Great service. Lovely table on the terrace and we weren’t hurried off which was a lovely treat. Drinks were delicious. Breakfast menu was good but a few meals not quite as on menu (smoked salmon and poached eggs missing the caviar). Will come again.

The food was delicious. The service was just ok. The prices were really expensive.
They had only white bread which was not good. We couldn't eat the bread.

Very good experience. The dinner was superb, beginning with the triple sample appetizer. Fig and olive salad was generous, so much so that I could only eat half of it in expectation of the entree to come. One of us had paella noir (should it not be "paella negra?") and the other a splendid sea bass. Both were amazing. Our server was quite professional, yet warm, friendly and appropriately attentive. We'll be back.

The total experience at Fig & Olive was superb! The service was excellent and I haven't said that about a restaurant in a long time. I am HUGE on customer service and Fig & Olive delivered. The food and drinks were delicious!! I hope that they will continue to impress me and go over and beyond what's expected. I hate to give a restaurant a great review only to return for another visit and the service and food are up to my expectations. I cannot wait to return. Thank you Fig & Olive for making my birthday celebration much more special!

We were visiting DC and stumbled upon Fig & Olive when walking through the neighborhood. We used Open Table to receive the reservation time we wanted the next evening. The staff was quite pleasant and the food was outstanding, from the crostinis to the paella, and finally, to the dessert tasting. We highly recommend Fig & Olive for the ambience, the service, and especially the food.

Beautiful ambiance, kitchen and bartender was a bit slow in getting out our orders. Brunch was nothing special in terms of flavors or tastes. Great option for picky eaters who are looking for a diverse menu, but not so great for foodies.

Had the Chilean Sea Bass which was very pricey at $38, but good. Portion was tiny, about 3x3 inch piece. I figure they fed about 8 people on that bass.
The croquettes were a great appetizer and the Peach Sangria's were excellent.
Nice place, good service and a great menu. It wasn't perfect, but I would highly recommend it for a night out with the wife

Beautiful space. Food was delicious but small quantities. Ambient noise was very loud so the loud music made it worse. We had a group of 6, and the combined three small circular tables wasn’t ideal. Server was very nice, but was understaffed overall on a Tues. so service was slow.
