The preset Restaurant week menu was limited, but everything we had was amazing. It was a great experience and the service was on point. Over all, it’s everything you expect from a restaurant like this.

Fig & Olive is always amazing, but this time I went a little crazy and invited a family with two children, one very young. They accommodated all 7 of us in time to get to the theater, and we didn’t feel rushed. Accommodating the food “proclivities” of kiddo’s on top of it all? Priceless!

Went for anniversary dinner. I had high hopes, even after reading the reviews. Well, the other reviews were, unfortunately, on point. The food was mediocre and the service was lacking. I had ordered the Sea Bass with a side of asparagus. Never received the side. The Sea Bass was okay; it came with some dry and chewy broccoli. After ordering the waiter never came back to check on us until after we were done. When I made the reservation via Open Table, I had indicated that it was an anniversary dinner. We were seated on time and did receive complementary dessert and champagne (thus the one extra star). That was the only highlight of the meal. CAUTION: the “suggested tips” on the final bill do not add up (even when taking into consideration the complementary dessert and champagne). Do the math before relying on their suggestions.

My husband ordered from the prix fixe menu and I from the regular menu. We shared our dishes. We loved the roasted cauliflower and the fig and olive salad (big enough for two). The paella Noir was good and plated nicely. My husband thought the Moroccan Free Range Chicken was OK. We loved the Berry Crostini. The service was excellent. Next time we will try the plates to share.

We went here for our Anniversary. The manager was wonderful and gave us 2 glasses of complimentary sparkling wine. The waiter was very attentive and we got a seat next to the window. Food was good and overall experience was great!! This was during restaurant week. Totally worth the price!

We came here to celebrate a birthday during Restaurant Week. We were seated upstairs, above the long bar. Although it got loud when every table was full, we could still chat & hear each other, while we enjoyed a bottle of Prosecco. We enjoyed the croquette tasting; burrata & tomato (the best one) & gazpacho. We ordered the lobster-filled ravioli which was very good with a little spiciness & a good-sized portion of Moroccan chicken, as well as the branzino a la carte. All the food was seasoned, prepared & plated well. Sorbet was refreshing; the Pot de creme, rich; delicious crostini, with handmade shortbread & fresh berries. Our waitress Stephanie & the entire wait staff were attentive. The room is decorated with a lovely large bouquet as well many fragrant rosemary plants. Great dining experience! Highly recommend.

Loyal enthusiast of Fig, but has been a bit been better at other times. Was too loud to even talk at times (and on a Wed night), had to wait a while even with a reservation, everything was a tad bit slow, drinks were ok this time... And all that's fine by me if the food is as great as it usually is. But it was ok, not the fantastic food I've come to expect from Fig over the last several several years.

Food and service was just OK. We ordered the Restaurant Prix Fix, the short rib was dry and tasteless as well as the sides. We also ordered some appetizers not on the Prix Fix which were just OK. Service was good, nothing special. The worst part of the dinner was the coffee. I ordered an expresso, it was sour tasting. My friend ordered a cappuccino and that had a funny taste. We did return the coffee and went to a coffee shop. Overall I was disappointed, heard that the food was good here. Not what I found. Will not go back.

Probably one of the worst experiences. The food took forever, appetizers came at different times, and we were overcharged by $100.

I feel that this restaurant thrives because of it's location. Food was just okay. The side salad with my sandwich was absolutely inedible, wet wilted greens and too much dressing. Chicken was dry, overcooked and potatoes were warm at best. A huge portion that took up the plate, and not in a presentable way. My dining companion had the salmon and shrimp which was a smaller portion nicely presented in a low bowl.
Just a so so meal.

Everything was absolutely incredible. The food....well no words to describe how great it was. The only reason I put 4 stars for service was because there was a slightly unpleasant moment where the waiter cursed out one of the busboys right next to us, which was both unpleasant and unprofessional with people being around. But otherwise great experience!

A friend and I dined at dinner time during Restaurant Week. We loved the food which was really delicious.
Imaginative flavors and ingredient combinations made the meal special. I loved the Roasted Cauliflower, Riviera Salmon and dessert Crostini. The wait staff was pleasant and did their best to keep orders moving on a busy night. We will definitely come back to this wonderful restaurant.

Came during Summer Restaurant Week to celebrate my partner's birthday. The entire tasting menu was incredible up to down and the service was amazing. I had a delectable salmon dish with so much flavor, gazpacho and their chocolate dessert. My partner had an equally tasty roasted cauliflower, lobster ravioli and the sorbet. Not a crumb left on our plates. It was so so good. The restaurant did feel a little crowded , its Midtown Manhattan so I wasn't surprised. It didn't bother me too much. I could still hear across the table without shouting. There was such a lovely ambience. They stuck with the Mediterranean theme all the way. I will definitely be back and have already recommended to friends looking for a lovely special dinner.

We don’t live in NYC, so this is the fanciest as it gets for us and it was so worth it. We just don’t have restaurants that have this kind of food where we live. We had a very attentive waiter and it was just such a delight.

Although the food was fairly good tasting, for the price it could have been better. The various dishes that were ordered were good, but nothing really special. Several people in my party got the lamb burger and noted that it was slightly overcooked. Overall food wise it was just good at best, when you add the price to the equation it doesn't feel really worth it. But, I would recommend that people try the place out so they can have their own opinions.

Our waitress got off work during our meal and didn’t bother letting us know. No one came by to check on us. We waited at least 30 mins after our meal was done before some one checked on us and brought us our desert. It kinda put a damper on the night because we love dining here.

Food was good as usual, but service could have been better. The waiter was rushing us to order, interrupted multiple times to ask how things were and rush the check as well. I usually go to the one near Chelsea Peirs; more causual atmosphere and more tables. I would recommend that location over the 5th Ave restaurant.

Food exceeded our expectation. Service however was horrible. Waiter was passive aggressive. We went as a party of 10 for a business dinner, by the time we asked for the check, which was around 2.5 hours since we sit down, the waiter said “I thought you will never ask for that”, insinuating we stayed for too long maybe? It was unprofessional. For the restaurant management, if you ever read this, we went in Friday Aug 3 with reservation at. 5:45PM FYI. Overall, recommend the food, the ambience, not the waiter.
