Everything is perfect but the price is high. I think for lunch menu prices are high.

The place is beautiful, but the food is questionable. F&O is in need of a new chef and menu. Not sure why they would send out dishes that were so ill-conceived. Surely, if they had taste tasted these items prior to adding to the menu or sending them out, they would have never served them. The beef carpaccio had the most odd of flavor combinations? I would say to keep the attempted "creative" aspect of your cuisine in check? To be honest, we did not have a main course (after the apps experience) so potentially those could fare better? Also, served us a glass of badly corked wine - and replaced if of course.

Do not waste your time and money at this establishment. it is also very $$$. An announcement of a new chef and menu could change that recommendation... We shall see...??

I made reservations for 9:15 on Sunday 9/29 and when we arrived, the doors were locked! Open Door stated that they were open until 10:00.

Restaurant was nice and the food was good. However our experience was disappointing as our waitress was overbearing, pushy and rolled her eyes at us when we did not agree with her recommendations. Overall our girls dinner was overshadowed by this poor experience.

Our server was knowledgeable and made wonderful recommendations. We loved everything except for the one thing we had wanted to try (that was not one of suggested ideas) and it was the cauliflower. For some reason it take bitter to us, but or server let us get something else, and that was delicious.

Chef needs to learn how to make eggs over easy. We got them and they were almost hard boiled sent back and the second batch was just a bit better but we didn’t want to send back as I had finished my meal. Great service and atmosphere

The food amazing! Server was great as well. The hostess... or hostesses .. there were 3 at the entrance.. were not hospitable at all. They were very young and definitely needed more training on how to make patrons feel welcomed. I have eaten at the melrose establishment and it was perfect from the entry. Here I felt like I was revisiting high school and they were in their clique...again food amazing .. hostesses.. horrible

We were at the restaurant celebrating two birthdays. Our service was a little slow - a few tables near us received their food before we even ordered. However, we did enjoy our evening at the restaurant.

The ambience was wonderful. Customer service was excellent. Chase our waiter was delightful. I was not that impressed with my order salmon burger, was not medium rare and I expected a filet but I should have asked. My friend ordered the smoked salmon poached breakfast and she mentioned it was just okay as well.

The drinks were excellent. I would come back for the ambiance and excellent customer service.

I've had some great experiences at Fig and Olive, yet this one left me unimpressed. As usual the atmosphere was bright and pleasant. Unfortunately, service was inconsistent during our lunch. We both ordered the Prix Fixe lunch. The gazpacho soup was tasty and nicely presented. The addition of house foccacia with a tasting of olive oils served as a great accompaniment to the soup. The main course, Pailliard of Chicken was just ok. The chicken breast seemed thin and uninteresting and the accompanying sauce was nothing special. I've had these dishes in the past and this one was different. It looks like they cut quality to keep the lunch prix fixe cost the same. Overall, the experience was fine, but not up to the usual standards I've come to expect at Fig and Olive.

I would 100% recommend Fig not too loud to where you can't have a conversation or so quiet that it felt stuffy. We enjoyed the food as well but felt that it was little pricey for what we were getting.

This was another wonderful evening at Fig & Olive. We always start with the six-order crostinis to get a good sampling, plus a cocktail (I had the Mediterranean Mule). Then we split the F&O dinner salad (the bowl it comes in is huge and easily accommodates two people with multiple servings). My entrée was the Tuna Provençal, which was delicious. For dessert, we shared green apple and orange sorbets. We received attentive and friendly service throughout. It's always a pleasure to be here.

Great experience and we took our three year old. The very nice busser that was serving water and clearing the table went out of her way to make our three year comfortable and taken care of immediately. She was amazing and we will be back. Love the table that are half booth and half chairs. Very cozy and enjoyable ambiance. Can’t wait to go back. Something about the vanilla ice cream is crazy, it’s better than any old vanilla ice cream. Everyone loved the roasted chicken meals.
