I had forgotten my wallet. The waitress and manager could not have been nicer about it. The permitted me to leave, go home and retrieve it with no hassle

I came for my friend’s birthday and the wait staff was amazing and brought us dessert with a candle without even asking! 😄 Also the restaurant week options were great. We had a fantastic time!

Excellent selection of food and wine, great service. Shrimp fettuccine was less than perfect. However, penne with mushrooms was really great. I’d recommend this place.

Said they weren’t participating in restaurant week on Sundays when the website clearly says they are (and we told the hostess it was on the website).
The lamb burger had something spicy in it not mentioned in the menu that the server seemed clueless about.

Fig & Olive has been my go to place. It works as a central location that everyone can get to and the food has always been good.

Would never return here again to meet a client - environment was boisterous and loud, and it was exceptionally difficult to manage to grab the attention of anyone besides a busser. Enjoyed the food from the Restaurant Week menu. If I were free on a Saturday and in the area with lots of time on my hands, I might consider eating here again. Otherwise, not a great experience for the money.

We tried the Restaurant Week menu. I recommend booking in advance as it was busy and there was a wait. The Yellowfin Tuna Carpaccio and the Mushroom Croquettes were fantastic. Enjoyed the Primavera Risotto entry. The portions were very generous. I'm looking forward to returning.

This is a good neighborhood restaurant on the UES. It is a bit small for the seating they are trying to provide, but all seem to tolerate the cramped space reasonably well. Food and Service has been consistently good.

The midtown restaurant is good, this one is mediocre. The octopus was recycled, the scallops luke warm. Second try at this location, same result. Stick to the midtown location.

Excellent meals. From my wife’s fish to my organic lemon chicken everything was superb. Waitress attentive and competent. Sangria was refreshing. We have been there in the past and will go often.

The service and food was perfect! This location is somewhat cramped. They may consider replacing the chairs with more comfortable and less bulky chairs.

I like the ambiance of this restaurant and the wine list was good. I wasn't overly impressed with the crostini which they are known for. My branzio fish was very good.

As I attend theater in the area, my go to place is Fig & Olive. The crostini's are excellent and reasonable. My server made a fantastic mojito, not on the Wine List, at my request for same and other dishes available are always well prepared and beautiful to see. Go, enjoy, especially the bread served with three different oils in which to dip.
