Menu needs updating. Value for money is NOT GOOD! Typical corporate run restaurant no personal feel. Bread served is of poor quality balsamic reductions are of industrial quality. Would not recommend this establishment.

Was great until open table said we skipped the reservation. Apparently checking in with the hostess for our reservation and spending over $100 per person doesn’t count?

Love this restaurant. Food and nice restaurant for a date. A bit pricy for everyday, but nice for a dinner out on Sun with husband or friend. Highly recommended. Will go back for appetizers.

The filet mignon was outstanding! The seabass was great too, but the salmon was pretty standard. Pricy, but definitely worth it!

Horrible service. We asked to send one dish back because we didn’t like it and were given a hard time. We ordered a salad that we didn’t get served. When the entree came out, we asked about the salad and the server had completely forgotten about it. We ordered a vegetable side to come with the entree and the side came out twenty minutes before the entree, so it was cold when we ate it with the entree. The food, aside from the crostinis, was unremarkable, especially given the price paid. I’ve been to this restaurant several times, but will likely never go back after this disappointing experience.

Excellent service and menu. Always impressed at F&O. We usually sit in the dining room because of the noise level on the patio. But the dining room wasn't open so had to sit on the patio and noise level was perhaps less than usual but still with my tinnitus it doesn't take much before I can't hear anything.

The location is nice, but the tricky nature of taking our order, then saying "you have choice of X or Y with your meal" not disclosing an extra cost occurred multiple times; I dont mind paying well for good food - just don't trick me into ordering extra please.

It was our first time at this Fig & Olive location, and overall I would say we had a great time. Our server, Angel, was knowledgeable, helpful, and fun.

I’d say my only criticism is that it did feel overpriced, as others have already mentioned in these reviews. That being said the food was delish and we would definitely go back.

Every thing is perfect there but I just don’t understand why recently they don’t use the beautiful part of the restaurant
That’s the only thing make me sad
Because it’s important when you go to restaurant like that you enjoy the view as well

The service was good; however the restaurant does not offer any kind of bread....the food I had was not good (salmon). In my opinion, the restaurant should focus more in the quality of the food, to make the place more attractive.

The food was spot on combination French influence and California creativity. Being a foodie myself, I couldn’t fault anything we had on the menu, which is rare. Our waiter Jake gave us outstanding service. My husband comes from over 35 years experience in customer service. Our waiter Jake went above and beyond what was expected. We will definitely return with friends and business colleagues. Thank you for the memorable evening.

Food was great, portions reasonable, value was a positive. Our evening, despite few covers, every course was delivered very slow. Appetizer, dessert and coffee was comped by the staff due to the long delays. A generous offer, given we never complained about the delays. The waiter was a saint!

I love Fig & Olive because the atmosphere is heavenly. The people who work there are the best in service and friendliness. The food is fresh, but overpriced, and the menu very limited. Drinks are great, creative, but again, overpriced. I go back because the ambiance is the finest! Sometimes it is just nice to have a lovely place to be...that is Fig & Olive. I just wish it was a little less expensive and had more to offer in smaller plates to grab a drink and a bite.
