Cocktail Bar
Our Fifth Avenue location on 52nd Street near Cartier’s Mansion comprises two open floors. Downstairs, the bar invites you to escape with one of our signature cocktails and a trio of crostini. Upstairs, our beautiful dining rooms provide the perfect setting for an elegant dinner or business lunch. Close enough to make your curtain, but far enough away from the bustle of Times Square to make your pre-theatre dinner a relaxing start to an evening in the city.

The food was fantastic! The service was slow and uncoordinated. We would return. They need to up their service expectations.

Have been to this location many times pre Covid and was always satisfied with food and service. Post Covid terrible service and aloof front of the house. Attempted to flag down waiter several times who didn’t even respond. Had to flag down front of the house several times to just get our order taken. Server never came to check on table at all. Upstairs wasn’t open either. Terrible terrible terrible service all around. Was not even offered an apology for the terrible and aloof service. Rather front of the house blamed Covid. Run your operations better and train your servers better. Will not return to this location.

We enjoyed a nice lunch with friends while visiting NYC. We had the crostini (choice of three from a diverse offering) and shared the tuna tartare as appetizers. As main courses, we shared a whole branzino "a la plancha" (delicious!) and the Nicoise salad. Nougat glacé as dessert (nice surprise). Good wine list.

Fig and Olive continues to provide a great mix of flavors for every meal! We stopped in for a quick lunch and were treated to a great meal. Combine this with the excellent service and attention and it makes for an excellent culinary experience every time.

Loved the food…horrible service. Took over 30 minutes after being seated to have anyone come to our table. Forgot one of our side dishes…but brought it after we were finished eating our entree. I know places are short staffed…but the manager was walking around aimlessly without ever jumping in and helping staff assist customers.
Disappointing.

The noise level in Fig and Olive was deafening! We were seated downstairs in the back of the restaurant and you couldn’t even have a conversation without yelling. I hope they supply their waitstaff with ear plugs because if you had to work in these conditions very long, your hearing would be impaired. That said, the food was good. My husband and I shared several small plates and they were all very tasty. Service was good, although it was difficult hearing what our server had to say. Maybe if we would have been able to eat upstairs, it would have been better but there was a large party up there.

I need to say this.
The waitress was very kind and good.
The women who was supposed to seat me upstairs was rude and actually horrific!!
I am a restaurant person , who is on private lists for reservation!
I have never been treated this way , ever.
I asked to please to be seated in the front area.
You had many many tables open.
I also had a reservation!
She told me NO , you can go downstairs and speak to the
matrede!
My answer was I am not walking all the way down stairs to ask for a table.
She did not care. How do you have people like this working in a upscale restaurant!
I walked downstairs and the women said of course you can sit up front. She then walked me upstairs and seated us.
I eat in your restaurant frequently!!
A bit appalling.

I felt you should hear this from the customer.
She should not be working there.

Really great. I didn’t like our seat. Servers had to reach over to get wine bottles. Happened twice so not terrible. Just don’t sit in front of that wall. Food was really great and so was the Mediterranean mule

It was our last meal in NYC before the shut down. We stayed at the Omni across the street and always have one meal here. Always good and always fun. This was no exception. Look forward to returning from our home in Virginia. We are native New Yorkers and never away this long. Hope all who dined there that night are safe and well.

We were skeptical at first because the reviews were some good and some bad, but wow our expectations were surely surpassed! The food was soooo good. The service was great. The ambiance was fun, lively, slightly trendy feeling. I felt almost like I was back in Italy, it was great.

The food was good but I did not appreciate the waitress who was a bit pushy about our order. She wanted us to order everything at once and we ended up with too much food. They also did not need to rush our order since no one was waiting for our table when we finished as the restaurant was half empty at that time.
