Totally disorganized, food took forever to come out. After waiting 2 hours we actually took our entrees to go.

Went for the Valentines Day deal. And it was horrible. The chicken and beef were both well overcooked and dry. The starters failed to impress. And the desserts were horrible...

The food was subpar and overpriced. Halibut specifically was forgetful.
Server forgot our wine pairing and argued that he didn’t.

Overall ambiance was great however for the amount we paid, totally not worth the price tag.

Food was just ok. They ran out of what we had wanted to order, said they would come our dessert because of it - only comped 1 of them. Overall the actual food was just eh.

Menu was okay, the food was fine but nothing that great. It was pretty loud in the main dining area. Had to learn forward and talk super loud to hear any conversation on our date. It wasn’t an awful place but definitely wouldn’t go back.

I hate to say it but the food has gone downhill. It is not bad by any means, but nothing great either. What a shame as it is such a lovely place. Dessert and starters are definitely better than the main courses

The food is good here, but if you’re vegetarian, the dishes seem to be a bit on the overpriced/boring side. They were good, but would have been better for $10-15 less. They had a good wine selection, and the flavored olive oil was fun.

We celebrated our anniversary at Fig and Olive tonight and while the food was delicious and the restaurant itself has a beautiful atmosphere, the staff is really what stood out to us the most. We couldn’t believe how friendly, attentive and genuine everyone was. Sometimes at a restaurant, the staff can be really nice but it seems a bit forced or fake. Everyone, from the time the hostess greeted us to the end of our meal, was just honestly nice- you can feel the difference. Bob, who was taking care of our table, was so great. He gave perfect suggestions and was so attentive. The manager/maitre d was also so kind and sent us champagne and dessert to celebrate the occasion.
Everyone went above and beyond to make the night extra special which was so unexpected and appreciated. We will definitely be coming back soon!

Beautiful restaurant and lovely atmosphere.

We had to assorted crostini plate, rose sangrias and truffle risotto and went home blissfully happy!

Everything was as good as it could have been. We chose a Sunday and an earlier than usual time, in order to cut down on noise for a birthday dinner. Our table was in the center by the trees, and it was lovely. Our server, Alexander, was fantastic, in both food service and being knowledgable about decanting our very special 20 yr old wine. The restaurant is beautiful, and we will return.

It took an hour for my appetiser to arrive. I was dining alone and was more or less ignored by the waiting staff. The waiter seemed to be double-batting as a bartender, and referred to me as “love” When my appetiser eventually arrived, my entree arrived at the same time. The worst meal experience I’ve been had when visiting LA.

My wife and I eat out for business and date night dinners several nights a week. Fig & Olive is always an option in our consideration set. We love the environment and the location, but each time we have gone there something is off with the service and the food is just not that good or distinctive.

Interestingly enough, I proposed to my wife right outside this restaurant four years ago and we have tried to go back to it on special occasions. We had not been to the restaurant in a while, but we decided to go there last Saturday night to celebrate our fourth year anniversary.

As soon as my wife and I arrived we both asked ourselves: "Why don't we come to this restaurant more often?"

But it didn't take us that long to remember why:

It was our anniversary night, which they knew ahead about, but they sat us in the noisy bar section.

And honest to goodness nobody came by to offer us a menu or drinks for about 20 minutes.

When the waiter did come to the table, there was no apology and barely any eye contact.

I ordered the salmon, which came out greasy and was really not a good cut of fish. The appetizers were mediocre at best.

And even though it was our anniversary, after the less than stellar meal, we decided not to stick around to find out how disappointing the desserts were going to be. We had enough.

My wife and I also decided that night that we have given this restaurant enough trials and enough hall passes---at least 8 times---to realize that it is just not that good of a restaurant, particularly when you consider how many incredibly distinctive, delicious and high level of service restaurants there are in LA.

However, despite our disappointment, the restaurant appears to be doing great, which I guess is probably part of the problem. Why change when you don't have to?

But they're not getting our dollars or special occasions anymore.

VERY NOISY. Food was good. Service is above average. If only it can be a little more quiet, would be 5 star. Will come back another time, maybe a weekday.

The host on front door was an absolute gem. We had a large party that kept increasing in numbers but the host really made it work for our party of 10. Our server however was nowhere to be seen for at least 20minutes which was a shame. I personally enjoy the food here during my visits everytime but there were a couple of people from the group on this night who weren’t too impressed with either the taste or portion size. I’d still say this is a great place for casual dining with great ambience and food/cocktail menu

It was really nice place to go for dinner. The food was excellent and the service was so good. It was just perfect. The only thing that bummed me out was I put on open table that we were celebrating my birthday and my wife told the hostess as well, but nothing happened. Other than that everything was great!

A lovely place to date night, girls night, group dinners, any excuse! All the food was delicious. The best was the pork entree, absolutely delicious! Will be back many more times. I would not bring my kids here and disrupt the ambiance.

This is my fifth time at Fig & Olive and each time a fabulous experience. I wrote on the reservation that it's for a going-away occasion and at the end of the dinner, they brought out a chocolate cake with "bon voyage" writing on the plate. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Our food was very good! Fresh and tasty! The one thing that lacked was our Bottle of Bordeaux wine was served with white wine glasses? I guess they ran out of the red? Small detail....

Dont see what the hype is. Hostess had attitude and barely managed a hello.Waiter had same disinterested look , never asked for drink order, and placed it down without a word when he brought it. Crostini app waste of time, plain white toast spread with tasteless topping. My chicken tajine a bland bowel of broth with two sad little pueces of dark meat chicken. Other dishes equallly uninspiring. Go somewhere else.

We always love coming to Fig he said, “oh it’s ok, they weren’t sharp” like a lame excuse. He should’ve immediately said “I apologize sir, are you ok? I’m so sorry!) Both my husband and I thought his response was totally tacky. They should train folks better than that!
