Food was good but not amazingggg. I asked to have the eggs Benedict without ham and they did so but after making me feel like they were doing me a huge favor. The eggs were really poached. They were almost hard boiled. Part of my order was served to someone on the other side of the table. Overall a good experience but not the best I’ve ever had.

We came for an anniversary and it was wonderful! They gave us the table near the window so we only had one party next to us and made it much more quiet. Our server was wonderful and let us stay for 3 hours talking, eating and drinking and didn’t rush us at all. We were greeted with champagne as soon as we sat, which was so thoughtful.

Good food-- their Fig & Olive salad is unique and very tasty and a great lunch with chicken. Nice, attentive service. A bit pricey, but at least food is good. Somewhat noisy, but this was the NYC location at lunchtime.

Have been here many times and usually love it. Never received bread or olive oils this time. Fig and Olive salad with grilled chicken was just good, not great (as I remembered from previous occasions). Service was otherwise good.

We booked on Open Table about 20 minutes before our lunch. Arrived at 11:30 to a mostly empty restaurant. The Manager was on her cell phone and the hostess took us to a table in the back next to the service alcove and kitchen. When I went back to the hostess station, the manager was still on her cell phone and the hostess never said a word but did change our table.

We visit New York at least twice a year and wanted to try something different. Fig and Olive offers a wide Mediterranean menu, from French to Tapas to Middle Eastern. We especially enjoyed the Bruschetta, which was very much like tapas we had in Spain. Highly recommended!

I am sure it was an "off" night due to one or two servers not able to make it to work (illness, family, accident)...but that aside...it would seem as if others would have to "step up" and do a little extra. we even had to ask for water glasses...and then ask again for them to be filled. Their seemed to be a complete lack of coordination between the waiters and those "assisting" them. One assistant obsessively rearranged the place settings on a table for 6...but during the 1 1/2 we were there ...no one ever sat at that table! the restaurant was busy ...but not to capacity. When there was service...it was not with a smile or …"sorry, for the wait" ...etc. The food was very good...not amazing...but very good! As I said...I am sure it was just an "off" night for whatever reasons...but never got the feeling that they were happy that we were there!

We chose Fig and Olive for Sunday brunch after mass at St Patrick’s. Very convenient location: walk from Grand Central Station, Central Park, 5th Avenue.
Service was prompt and courteous.
Waiter even took our picture.
Food was very nice: breakfast omelette, chicken/cranberry salad, shrimp/ salmon salad. After brunch coffee arrived promptly; we did not feel rushed although I am sure there was a waiting line.
Reservations a must. Delightful gathering of cousins was surely enhanced by Fig and Olive.

Fig & Olive seems to be resting on it's laurels a bit. We make a point to eat here everytime we visit New York, but our latest experience was disappointing. The usual attention to detail was lacking and the service was just ok. We had to ask for water refills and the bread/olive oil was not delivered until the middle of the meal. They have and can do better.

My friends and I would never go back...
Vlad was our server and he was horrific. Very inattentive and when he was there was dismissive.
I asked for a taste of 2 diff wines and he said “it will take about 5 to 7 minutes to get them” to which I responded “well, I’d like to order a bottle and I am not familiar with your wines”.
He brought the tastes and said “it’s Saturday and if everyone ordered a taste of wine it would be impossible”. Seriously?!?!
We ordered the cheese platter and when it arrived no one told us what the cheeses were - we had to guess what was what.
Very little attention from the wait staff during our meal.
And food game very quickly - rushed.
My friends and I shared a Chilean sea bass and lobster ravioli. Sea bass was nothing special and the lobster was not bad.
We ordered coffee, tea and espresso and a Amaretto di Saronno neat (to add to our drinks). Vlad came back to indicate they were out of di Saronno so we asked if they had any other amaretto. He came back with our hot drinks fairly quickly Waiter came back after about 5 minutes and said they DID have di Saronno and someone was going to the basement to get it. 10 min later (our drinks are now cold) he comes back saying they were wrong they didn’t have it and the bartender suggested this other brown liquid as a replacement. It was awful.
Dessert Pot du creme was delicious.

I recently put together a surprise birthday lunch at this location for my wife. We really enjoyed the energy in the room. I noticed other people were also really enjoying themselves with friends and family. The menu provided enough choices to meet the requests of the people at our table. The food came out in a good amount of time and tasted as good as it looked. We did have a small problem with one of the drinks but it was remedied quickly. It was overall a great experience and I look forward to coming back again. In the end, the most important part was my wife really enjoyed her time with family and friends.

love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

This was my first time at Fig and Olive, and I was thoroughly impressed. From the welcoming hostess to the attentive wait staff, the dining experience was a pleasure. Food was excellent! And even though we sat right next to two other tables, my daughter-in-law and I had no trouble chatting and hearing each other. Quite frankly, I was rather oblivious to the people around us, and I attribute that to, among other things, a wait stuff that kept our table cleared, replenished drinks and the yummy bread and oil tray without our ever having to wonder if we were being attended to or not!! It was a pleasure! 😊
