Food was amazing and the setting was perfect on Valentine's Day, with a live jazz band performing while we ate by the fireplace. Service was awesome as well!

This place is severely overrated. The food preparation was terribly overcooked on every course, and the waitress had no idea how to handle the complaint. Additionally, the waitress would just wander off in the middle of talking to us and we'd be left confused about the whole process. In the end, this place has a lot of hype because of the location and OC celebrity status, but the food is average, the menu tries too hard to impress and overall we left very disappointed with no intent to ever return, and we'll certainly never recommend it to anyone else.

Pris Fixe Valentine's menu was disappointing on all fronts. Pre made appetizers served room temperature. Main courses of fish and veal had no flavor. Will not go back. Dessert was a pair of morsels.

We thought going early was unfortunate, but we loved it because we had spacious seating, quiet ambiance and attentive staff. When reserving I had not been told of price fixe; that was okay, but the portions for the 1st course were tiny. The main courses of filet and osso bucco were superb. The dessert samplings were only a tease. Overall, well done by all.

We made reservations for 10:45 and arrived to find a locked restaurant at 10:30. Diners were still dining and we knocked at the door only to be told they had closed early to prep for Valentines Day which was the following day. We were given a card for two drinks or an appetizer but it is unlikely we will ever return.

Restaurant was quiet on a Sunday afternoon for a late brunch. Since we had a late breakfast/brunch already our menu choice was limited so we shared the octopus carpaccio, then both had the lobster salad and finished sharing chocolate dessert which was the best of the 3 courses. The service was good and we would probably go back to try dinner some time.

7 of us had an amazing dinner over the weekend. The food Was so delicious and we had a great waiter very attentive. Only complaint was the noise level. We found it hard to have a conversation with anyone that was not right next to you.

Great food, great table outdoor with good coverage. Service was amazing. The friends we invited had not been at Fig and Olive in over 2 years and they loved it, they will returned!

Terrible service. The restaurant was more or less empty, with only three or four other diners. We had to call for our server several times, including once for water. Not quite the level one would expect here. Very disappointing.

Food was great. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere. There was a private party that was loud and the restaurant did not contain it to their room. Service was slow but the server was apologetic.

The entrees were quite underwhelming, but the appetizers were exquisite. The staff was attentive, and the drinks were excellent. I would come back, but perhaps just for happy hour.

I was entertaining a very high end client and our server was fantastic. He even stirred sweet and low into his tea when bringing a refill.

Everything was great!!!

Setting, service and food were great! We went for lunch during Newport Beach Restaurant Week, so value was good ( my lunch would have cost double had it not been a "restaurant week special").

Service was poor. Food came out wrong, twice. Had to ask multiple times for food to be brought back correctly. Ended up ask multiple times for soda water to be refilled, still waiting for the last refill requested. Manager comp’d some of the bill. We will try it again, but this was a really disappointing birthday dinner.

Our first time experience and it's great overall. One thing I didn't enjoy was sitting on the long bench. When people of a nearby table moved, I was affected, not a pleasant feeling. The food was great though. I liked the bread dipping in 3 flavor olive oils, the sea bass and the grass fed beef.

My guest and I enjoyed another good meal here, was glad to see the Newport Beach Restaurant Week menu in place, though we both had different menus,(I am guessing one was lunch and the other dinner). We figured it out and found other selections. I will be back.
