Enjoyed lunch. Started with a sampling of crostini (mushroom; manchego/fig; prosciutto) and all were super good. Both of us had the Shrimp and Salmon salad. Delicious. Cooked to perfection. Nicely dressed. Very very enjoyable lunch. And quiet enough to talk!

Short staff, food took some time to get out. Inside temperature was chilly. Bring a jacket if you want to enjoy your $$$ meal. Overall staff has many hats to wear, host equal chefs,server,and busboy.

Men was our waiter. He was attentive and knowlegable. We went for Brunch and had the French Toast and the Provencal Breakfast. The decor is lovely and elegant. My only little quibble is the restaurant is a bit difficult to locate from inside the Galleria Mall. But I look forward to going back for dinner.

Always a delight anytime we go into town to do some shipping we start our adventure at Fig&Olive. I highly encourage trying the signature salad the 18yr balsamic does not disappoint. Even if you are a regular salad kinda person, take a walk on the wild side and give it a try.

I've had Fig & Olive for brunch with a friend around when it first opened. The restaurant wasn't super busy and I had a great brunch with great service, so, I was hoping it wouldn't disappoint for a Valentine's Day dinner. However, it did just that. I had reservations at 7:30pm, made weeks in advance through OpenTable. I arrived on time to my reservation, and was told it would be a 10-15 minute wait. My boyfriend and I didn't mind, we both knew that this Friday night would be a busier night. We didn't get sat until almost 8:30pm. So, needless to say, we were already a little annoyed considering we had a reservation and still waited near an hour for our table. Next, the food was okay. Our main issue was the they pre-set menu for Valentine's Day with a few choices. I probably should've called in ahead to confirm what menu they were serving, but oh well. My boyfriend and I both ordered the filet mignon. I ordered mine medium rare, and my boyfriend ordered his medium. Both of the steaks were undercooked. Mine was cooked a little more than my boyfriend's so we switched. But after cutting deeper into the steak to check, and finding it was still too rare (still pink and cool on the inside), he sent it back to be cooked to a medium. It came back barely any warmer. Was still too rare and red in the middle. At this point, we were both over it so we just finished our meal. The dessert was good, though.

Our server did not honor our request for wine pairing for the Valentine's Day Pre Fixe Menu. We only got two glasses of wine despite the number of courses on the menu. By the time we finally flagged down our server, we had just finished our dessert. He apologized and tried to appease us by giving us champagne, but we wanted wine instead. It certainly wasn't worth the expense of wine pairing.

We went for Valentine's... Reservation for 7:30pm and seated at 8:25pm with not very attentive staff. If anything they were rude about the fact that they were running behind schedule. The preset menu was underwhelming and choices weren't great. Wine pairing was awful unfortunately. For the price this didn't even come close to quality. The ambiance is really great - probably a better spot for lunch if you must go.

Celebrated our co-worker’s birthday during lunch here. It was great! My only note is that the server was a little quick to judge on what we were ordering and assumed just the salad, soup of the day, and crostini’s was the meal, picked up menus and offered us dessert. On the other hand, Food was very good and presentation was beautiful once we did have our entrees ordered and served. We ordered Chicken Tajine and the Traditional Burger after having their side salad, carrot-ginger soup and crostini (forest mushroom, beef tartare, burratta). Server brought out complimentary dessert for the birthday girl! The chocolate mousse like cake was very decadent yet light and was a sweet ending to the birthday lunch. Overall a great experience and would come back.

Would have preferred to know we were expected to leave before midnight because of the time. When we made the reservation, we weren’t told, and they made it sound like if you reserved, you got to stay for a party, which was never really produced. We did get to stay, but the fact they rushed us through the meal took away from the enjoyment. They said this is a French restaurant, and no self-respecting French person would fly through a holiday meal in an hour. My ex and all his family are French. I lived there for more than a decade. If you’re going to put yourself out as a French place, which is what I searched for when it came up, then you can’t rush meals. It just doesn’t happen.

We were celebrating my dad’s birthday, my mom had ordered a soup that was never brought. We ordered a side Parmesan rissotto for my filet mignon, and they brought us a main dish Kobacha risotto. For deserts, we ask for a candle for the birthday boy, and it did not happen. All in, worst dinner at fig and olive in years

The meal was very tastie. However my husband and I both ordered the truffle fries. We got them in a white bowl his was twice as much as mine. Spilling over the top mine was considerably smaller potion. There was spiders crawling around the back of me. My husbands seat was dirty with crumbs. I thought there would be live music like everyother time but no. My fault I should have phone ahead before I made the reservations. I asked the guy who brought our food for balsamic vinegar and he never returned . Not j. I got my cheese cake to go. I was told that you guys didn’t have spoons ( I couldn’t imagine that) overall I do love the place and have a number of friends who visit often. I will be back.

Food was good. Had a nice selection of crostini’s. Carrot and ginger soup was so-so -a little bland. We sat outside which was a mistake because the valet park was right beside us.
