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!

Love the Fig and Olive. Food and service were outstanding. Noise level was extremely high. I wouldn't call it energetic, it was deafening. Couldn't even talk to our friends. There was a christmas party on the second level and people were actually screaming . Have been here before and don't remember it being that loud.
The food was fabulous, love the appetizers and I had the Pork, best I have ever had! .> We will be back, hopeful during a quieter evening.

Service was very slow. It was almost 20 minutes before they even came over to ask for my drink order. Food was mediocre at best. Chicken is as dry as cardboard. Lobster was tasteless. $26 for a tequila? At these prices service and food should be much better

We had a superb, flavorful meal in a lovely, warm setting. The menu options were so mouth-watering, it was hard to choose. The complimentary olive oil sampling to start the meal was divine. The bread alone that came with it was amazing! We ordered the crostini appetizer with three options, and each was delicious. My favorite was the one with manchego cheese and fig spread, but the smoked salmon and craime fraiche was also incredible. My boyfriend adored his chicken tajine, which was full of flavor and light spices. He would have licked the plate if he could have. I got the paella, which was comforting and bursting with various types of seafood. I was worried it would be a giant dish, but it was just the right size. I would definitely get it again. For dessert, we shared the chocolate obsession cake, which was infinitely rich and smooth with a bright spot of raspberry here and there.

The environment was energetic and serene all at once, full of warmth and gold-tinged lighting. Our waiter was very attentive and the busboys cleared the plates at just the right moment. This is a wonderful place to go for a nice dinner out or a special occasion. Highly recommend!

Nice setting and design, but the food leaves much to be desired. Dishes were not all that flavorful, though nicely presented. I could have cooked the dishes at home with ease, and at a fraction of the price.

I went here with my wife for our first date since our daughter was born and we were both very disappointed. We started out with the charcuterie board. It was very basic and mediocre. Next was the fig & olive salad which was also mediocre. For the main course we had the lamb and the duck breast (both ordered medium rare). The duck breast was overcooked, tough, and bland. The lamb was cooked well but also very bland. Additionally, the food came out extremely slowly. Overall we were both very disappointed with the restaurant and in awe of how they manage to stay in business. Top this off with the fact that the meal was around $200 (with no alcohol), suffice it to say we will never go back.

There were not enough servers and there was a special event there that relegated other guests to one room. The room was very cold and they were reluctant to turn it off. One of party ordered soup that was not hot and when they brought another one, it was also not hot.

The food was actually awful. We got a pasta dish, it was super basic, absolutely nothing special. Trader Joe's has better pasta in their freezer section. The yellowtail tuna was tasteless, my neighborhood poke place has better yellowtail. Lastly, we got the New York steak "medium well", but it came out as bloody as ever. Literally a pool of blood on my plate. And I wouldn't mind a medium or medium rare steak, but this was COLD, raw, and the taste was disgusting. The potatoes on the plate were also ice cold. Fig and olive should be embarrassed of the food they serve to their patrons. Never going back. Biggest waste of money and time I'll never get back.

Saturday night, it was extremely busy and they were behind and we waited at the bar for 10-15 minutes before we were seated for a party of 2. There was a live DJ and at first I felt like I was walking into a party, but it was nice and the ambiance was perfect. Service seemed a little slow at first, but we were timely helped by men in suits who appeared to be managers. They took our drink, appetizers, and entrée orders. Our appetizers and main courses came out pretty fast for as busy as they were. The managers and eventually wait staff were very attentive. Overall, the food, ambiance, venue, and service was excellent. Definitely would go back again!

Awful experience. The noise was out of control. I go to a restaurant to eat and enjoy talking with my family and friends. I do not go to scream at each other over music that is extremely loud. Totally ruined our experience. The pork was dry and over cooked. Will not repeat.

Beautiful restaurant with "meh" food. We had heard such great things about this place and we were underwhelmed. Nothing food-wise was bad, but all was mostly just "fine". We won't be going back.
