The waiters and staff are disaffected.

If you aren’t someone, or look like you may ‘be someone’ (AKA have the right look of money/skin tone/ etc.), they can’t seem to be bothered to serve you with all the little extras everyone else is getting at the other tables with similar food items. My order was not brought out properly, my order was not taken down and submitted correctly to the kitchen, the plates were handed out for each person to grab on their own rather than placed in front of them.

And no, I didn’t say anything. I typically allow the waitstaff to wait on me to see if they can self-correct on their own. I order clearly without changing the chef’s dishes, do not have my server running back and forth because I forget to mention I needed something at the table, I converse quietly with my table guests, and I tip generously.

Every customer should be treated exactly the same way. Why should I point out their lack of training/professionalism/courtesy, when it is up to the management to properly instruct their staff to welcome all customers to their establishment with the same courtesy and professionalism at all times?

Last (and only) time I’ll ever go there. Maybe they do less for you if you order the Dine LA menu. At least at McDonalds, I know it’s my order and not someone else’s.

We dined here once before several years ago and we were not overly impressed. This time, however, was excellent. Three of us had the DineLA menu. The burrata/heirloom tomato and croquette tasting were generous and tasty. The entrees of Truffle Risotto, Lobster Ravioli and Moroccan Free Range Chicken were all delicious. We tried both desserts, though the Pot de Creme was a far superior choice than the Olive Oil Cake. We also had the Lamb Chops which were not on the DineLA menu, but we would highly recommend. It was served with an excellently prepared eggplant caponata. A winner.

Apps took 35 mins after ordering. It was cold soup and a salad. Attending waiter was never around. Place was not as busy as we were there at 3pm on Sunday. However they did give a discount on the bill.

A special VIP was seated next to us. The waiter nearly ignored us. I think if they have someone important they should have handed us to another staff member. After eating to nearly 40 minutes to get someone to clear table. Then they ignored us 30 minutes more to bring tab. The funny thing is the VIP table had our waiters attention about 30 times. Us 3 times. The funniest thing is between my friend and myself our combined net wealth is over 700 million. I'm sure that VIP wealth was nowhere near.

Valet at the door, and got seated within minutes, which is very nice. Our server was really nice and explained the menu selection to us in detail. Food was above average although we had ordered our rib eye to be med-well, but came out well done, and was really dry. Other then that everything was good.

We always love the restaurant, but this time we are a little disappointed with the service. We sat the couch by the bar, and I guess this was wrong. The waitress girl who also serve as a bartender was not rude but when we asked about the pasta we might want to order, she was like “it’s ok, but I recommend the other one with lobster..” we think the restaurant should not have the ok dish on the menu. She could answer it more positively.

And after the order, all the dishes came so fast so our Saturday night dining was made to finish quick. We wanted to enjoy more slowly. Plus they didn’t serve their bread and olive oil until the end which was supposed to come at the beginning of the meal. We actually had to ask for it. And they didn’t bring our side dish. So we ended up canceling it. Plus we watched a bartender guy arguing with a waitress girl. They should not show any personal issue in front of the guests.

We always loved and impressed the service at this restaurant, but this was the first time we came home disappointed. Maybe we should not sit the couch table as it is served by bartenders.

Food was fantastic, the server was awesome! All that said, when I arrived, there wasn’t a host/hostess available with no one around to explain their absence or that they had stepped away and would be returning shortly.

We have been many times. Despite being Dine La. the food was not up to Par. Ordered from menu & as well (as dine La) and a dish had many times found it to be subpar. I should returned it. The dine La menu choice included a regular menu dish. It was not served traditionally with the side sauces Moroccan chicken.(pesto,almonds,harissa like sauce). This makes the dish. Unfortunate.

Was very disappointed. My sea Bass was very tasty however, my husbands salad was virtually uneatable. My daughter's Moroccan chicken was bland and uninspired. The cheese board was well presented and the choices were nice. The people watching was exceptional though. Several celebrities and the various characters made for an enjoyable sideshow. Cost was a bit high for the quality of the food.

Came back after a few years absence. Front staff was great, friendly and welcoming. This was a business meeting with a client who I work for via phone but had never met. I'm male; she's female. I was a bit surprised when I met the woman as she was dressed somewhat provocatively, if you get the drift. Server was initially good, took drink order, spoke when appropriately and gave us time. The woman excused herself and the waiter and I chatted. I actually told him this was a first business meeting with a person I'd only done work for over the telephone and was meeting for the first time. I confessed she did not look as I expected.

The food came and was surprisingly creative, eye appealing and very good. I made a mental note that the place is close to my home and office and I'd definitely have to return more often. I then excused myself to the restroom while waiting for the check.

I came back to the table where the check was waiting, my having given the waiter my credit card as I stood up. The credit card was already signed (by the woman) with an indication of "zero" for a tip.

I looked up at her and she said "DO NOT change that. DO NOT give the waiter a tip. The moment you left he said 'what are you doing with that guy' you should be with me." She said he tried to give her his phone number and aggressively "hit on her."

Bottom Line; Luckily she did not blame me and I did not lose a client. Unfortunately, I will not be back which is too bad as I liked the food.

Hoping this last visit was a one-off as its usually better food and a better experience than this. A business lunch - our dishes came 45 minutes after we ordered. Both were poor. The heirloom tomato appetizer comped by our waiter was great though. Maybe he should have chosen our entrees too.

It was a birthday lunch and it just seemed like the waiter was not at all attentive to our table and there was really no one in the restaurant much .....so it was annoying when the plates stayed on the table and service was only there when I asked for attention ....other than that we love Fig and Olive’s ambience.

The crostini were the tiniest I’ve ever seen. I think they’ve gone downhill. With so many options in the area, I don’t think I’m going back.

We were in town for my son's play. We did not make our reservation until Saturday night, and they were able to accommodate us. Our server Andrew was excellent, the food was good, and we all liked the ambiance. It was a little noisy, but we were a party of 7 and probably contributed to the noise level. Overall it was a great evening and a great meal.

Really slow service. Had to ask for water refills several times. Had to flag down our waiter to order. Entrees came out luke warm (sea bass x 3) and one with a huge delay (chicken)... which only made the luke warm fish even colder. The size of the olive oil cake was literally "a bite". The waiter was apologetic and ended up comping desert. This was a very expensive meal for really mediocre service and food. We used to love this place. It's too bad.

I was so horrified at the lousy service and aged restaurant. The service was just horrible, how many times should you ask for water? When it takes so long to clear appetizer plates that you end up having to move them, that's stupid. Unfortunately it took so long for the check and rather then wait for change, we ended giving a 25% tip. It was not for the service, that's for sure, it was so we could get out of there!

I saw the many reviews on this restaurant and decided to drive almost 2 hours to this restaurant for my birthday. The 3 appertizers we ordered were just mediocre. The jambon iberico was not very good in quality. I think my prosciutto from Trader Joe’s taste even better than that. We ordered rack of lamb, Moroccan chicken and short ribs as entrees. Both the chicken and short ribs were way over cooked and tasted like shredded paper. My lamb was smoked... ?? May be it is supposed to be like that but for me it certainly tasted like smoking and eating lamb at the same time. Sad! My family of three hardly touched the entree. We finished the bottle of wine quickly and left without trying their dessert. So disappointing. In addition, I don’t like the fact that they charged us $8 per bottle water on the 2 bottles water we ordered without letting us know that it is not free. And the first water bottle was already opened when the waiter brought to us and his hands are still wet...?! I was usually charged for water when we go to top restaurants in Vegas or 4-5 stars restaurants in LA.
