Service and food was amazing... Thanks
Good to keep social distancing , both sides table were vacant.
But the our table was not stable.
Really good service. The food was excellent and the presentation was as well. This is my fourth time at this restaurant after being terribly disappointed with my experience at the Fig and Olive in Beverly Hills. I am so glad that I gave the operation in Fashion Island, Newport Beach, a second chance. The only negative is that their win by the glass is very pricey, more so than even the Union League in Philadelphia where I have been a member for over a quarter century. That is the only poor value at Fig and Olive.
I am so happy I dined at the Fig & Olive. My friends and I attended for O.C. Restaurant Week and it was our first time there. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. I loved the carrot and ginger soup, and the Chicken Tajine reminded me of a delicious dish I once had in France. The entire experience was very nice.
Vanessa our server was amazing.
The location and decor is beautiful. We had an amazingly satisfying lunch, the flavor of the food were all fresh & so tasty.
Overall food was good, not outstanding but good. Service on the other side was really disappointing.
The server was very diligent in explaining all the dishes and she was very friendly to each of us (we were a group of 8), however, the waiting time was beyond any reasonable expectation. We all ordered 3 courses that were all served within a 3 hour span!!! Basically, an average of one dish per hour! My fil ordered mushroom risotto with chicken and they forgot the chicken. It was brought to him so late that the risotto was cold by then...
I’m thinking the restaurant was short staffed that night, as I can’t imagine service to be so bad on a regular basis.
I would go back again in a smaller group, just to confirm... as I do like their menu and ambience.
It was our first time. It was a wonderful experience. The ambient is just perfect, not to quite yet not loud enough to hear each other’s voices over the table. Defina recommended place! Will be back as well!
