Got a salmon sandwich, the fish was a little old. Our cauliflower appetizer was bland and not roasted enough. The truffle fries were good and the desserts were good as well as the drinks. But our entrees were disappointing. Service was good.

I think the food and service both went down. The food taste not as delicious than before. Definitely feel not worth for that price. We were there to celebrate a birthday, but the service was just alright. No special dessert offered for birthday. The hot water has damp smell properly from the water bottle, which they should clean and dry better especially for a high end restaurant. Seems mismanaged. Not recommended for that quality and price.

Food was very average and entree selections were too few. Service was awful! Very friendly bartenders and waitress, but it took 15-20 minutes to get a drink every time we ordered one. And the restaurant was not packed. Waitress was very friendly but inattentive. We actually left before ordering an entree bc we were not impressed. We won’t be returning.

The Fig & Olive has excellent food and a great ambience. The only problem is the service has slipped somewhat. The management need to get a handle on the standard and consistentency of service going forward.

I love the restaurant for its open and fresh look . There’s not too much for vegetarians. But the risotto , i ordered was delicious . The only thing this time , the server wasn’t too friendly, had to remind him to bring the bread and also the pepper grinder for the risotto. They usually ask and bring the accompaniments on their own .

The atmosphere was classy and great for a date night or even a ladies night out. The crostini was excellent. I had the Fig and Olive salad which was delicious and plated beautifully. I added the salmon which was cooked perfectly. I love that the had a dessert that comes with a coffee or tea, praline bite, and a small pot de creme. I’ll definitely come back.

Went on a Saturday night. It wasn’t even half full. We ordered the hamachi crudo and the squash with burrata for starters. The crudo had a strong fishy aftertaste and was sent back. The squash with burrata was better but the acorn squash in the dish was dry and mealy. The entrees improved but the service was lacking. We had to ask to have our appetizer plates removed since they weren’t taken before our entrees were served. Too many problems for a well established restaurant chain. Will not be back.

One my worst experiences in a while. Not sure if they were just short-staffed, but no one even came to take our drink order until we were all sitting for over 20 mins. Finally had to waive someone down. This continued all evening. We were there for over 3 hours and were only served 3 rounds of drinks (we all ubered) and were looking forward to a fun girls night out. Very disappointed

1) Beware of going on the weekend unless you are well aquarium need with the Galleria area traffic and parking. I went through three lots to find a place to park after fifteen minutes in traffic. They do have valet parking and I would recommend using it. It would even be torture for an Uber driver.
2) My food was cold
3) Veal was quite good but the underlying risotto was not.
4) Waiter never even asked if we wanted more wine.
For the price of the entree I would not go back but if I was in the Galleria shopping I would go for the yummy flat breads.

The appetizers were delicious, so I was looking forward to the main course with steak. I asked for medium though, and it was very clearly medium rare to rare. The server sliced some of the steak for us before fully serving to us, and his difficulty with getting the the thin cuts clearly showed the pink rareness. Pretty disappointing for a $150 meal.

I made reservations a weeks before for Valentine’s Day and we end up almost sharing a table with another couple, that was uncomfortable. Food is always good but service was a kind of slow, but it was a busy night so I get it.

Such a shame the kitchen got backed up... took 3.5 hours to serve dinner. Food towards the end of the night was rushed and undercooked. The cocktails and the bartenders were excellent. When table staff apologise for things taking so long, you know they’ve got problems.

The food was really fantastic. So so good. Every plate. We went on Valentine's so I knew it was going to be pretty busy. Just felt like the wait staff should have been prepared for that. We waited for about 10 minutes for water and then each plate after that took a very long time. Once we were ready for dessert we waited for 20 min and then asked the waiter to go ahead and pack it to go and give us the check.

Food & service were good.
Front desk hostess was either distracted, new & did not yet know what she was doing, or else her attitude was bordering on rude- not sure which it was- but it did not start the evening off pleasantly.
Fortunately, our waitress was personable & attentive, so we quickly forgot about the hostess.
Food was good, but menu is definitely limited. This is our 3rd visit to the restaurant in Houston.
We had loved it when we visited in NYC, but the menu changed significantly by the time it came to Houston. I don't know if we will come again.

Extremely small portions for what you pay. My sisters salad was very salty and the server said he’d look into it and never did. Worst avocado toast I have ever had on a plain piece of toast with over cooked quail eggs and what tasted like grocery store pre packaged guacamole ($16 for what looked like a side dish). Was $300 for 4 people (about $100 was alcohol) and we all left hungry. Service was actually great just very disappointed with food. Especially since I recommended for my mom’s birthday.
