Extremely loud on second level, but it was lunch time. Waiter was rushing us & constantly coming to table & interpreting our conversation every 5-10 minutes. Lobster salad was terrible- tasted old, rubbery & soggy like it had been sitting pre-prepared for hours w artificial looking red croutons & over-dressed. Didn’t say anything bec it was a business lunch, but will never return! Convenient location, but extremely disappointing experience!

Always fun and sophisticated. I come a lot to this location with visitors to NYC and folks who work in midtown because it's near MOMA and Rock Center. Menu is great for people with various dietary concerns - lots and lots of vegetables, lots of options for non-meat eaters. Pricey but not crazy. Food is good.

The lobster salad was ill-conceived, spiced beyond recognition as lobster. The service made us feel rushed as dishes were brought out within minutes of being ordered, raising questions as to when they had been prepared. Our check was brought before we asked for it, delivered with an ironic "no rush"!

Very busy crowded restaurant. Server was pleasant. Food was bland, visually pleasing but no flavor. Not worth the price with so many great choices in NYC.

We thought the food was good above average the service was a little lax at times.The part of the restaurant that we were seated in was cold. Every person seated against the wall basically kept there coat on. Probably wouldn’t go back soon!

Fig and Olive on Fifth Avenue is one of my favorite restaurants when visiting NYC. I love the seasonal menu, the creative cuisine, and the menu choices - small plates, full entrees, perfect for just grazing or a full meal. And, be sure to save room for dessert, as all items are awesome. This particular Fig and Olive site is always busy, which is a nod to the excellent food and wonderful employees. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Essen am 24.12.2019. es war einfach grauenvoll.Die FlascheWein kam nach ca 20 Minuten - nach der Vorspeise, war zu warm und sollte in den Weinkühler. Nach weiteren 15 Minuten war die Flasche nich auffindbar. Der Kellner musste eine neue Flasche bringen. Die Hauptspeise war ungenießbar, wir haben alles einpacken lassen und später auf der Straße einen Obdachlosen beglückt.
Fig & Olive nie wieder!!!

There was a bug in the salad, the tables were so close together that the waiter was bumping into us every few minutes, and we were kept waiting 30 minutes despite having a reservation. Would not recommend.

The food is terrific. However, due to the holiday crowds, it took a while for the food to be served. When we arrived, we were told that due to the holidays, we would need to leave within 2 hours. However, since the service was so slow, we were there for about 15 minutes longer. No one kicked us out.

Very crowded. Had a reservation but they refuse to seat until every member of the party was there. As a result they had a mob of people just standing around the door. Tables are so close servers bang into the chairs. Food was good but hard to appreciate in a stressful environment.
