Sadly the management team was not at it's best during this dining experience. My party left rather abruptly after we were asked my management rather rudely to move our coats, hats, scarves, gloves and mobility devices with no offer of an alternative place to put them. Not likely to eat here again. To make matters worst the food was not that impressive for the price.

I got here fairly often. The hamachi is wonderful! The beets in the salad were not in great shape, but everything else was good.

The crostinis are the best - a neighborhood gem which never disappoints. Refills on ice tea would have brought higher score.

This was a bad night. The tall blonde waiter was too involved in posing than listening to our requests, so for that reason a glass of wine ordered at the beginning of the meal was never delivered. The octopus appetizer was supposed to be scorched and crispy charred but it was not. And to add to the dismay, I forgot to tell the waiter “low sodium” so this dish was drenched in salt. The carrot/ginger soup was filled with slices of ginger that were inedible and it was poured into a cold dish so it likewise lost its heat quickly. While we have eaten here many times and overall enjoyed the experience, this was an off day that makes me want to write that I will not be back.

Once again, Fig and Olive has proved itself a wonder choice of restaurant to go to in this neighborhood. The food is excellent. I particularly love the crostini choices and results. My companion, a fist timer, was greatly impressed.

Requested table was not available. While I understand that such requests are not guaranteed but there were many empty tables elsewhere and not all seated at window requested it in advance as I had done. Disappointed. Will still dine there as I appreciate your food

Fig & Olive has been a go to restaurant for my wife and I when attending theater in the area. We have aways had a favorable reaction to the food, drink, and atmosphere.

The restaurant isn’t handicap accessible. My dad uses a walker and they did not want the restaurant to have walker inside. Additionally, there are narrow steep steps to use a bathroom, so he was unable to use the bathroom. On top of that, he’s diabetic and we waited over 45 minutes for our food.

Love the menu and the food. The staff was very accommodating for my friend's dietary restrictions. The F&O salad had fewer goodies in it than when I last had it at another location. While the atmosphere (and acoustics) is energetic, we were seated towards the back where it is a bit more quiet. Sorry that the olive oils from around the world were mostly replaced with infused ones. I would have bought a few more bottles if the Tunisian, Greek and other varieties were offered and available. The balsamic is still the best anywhere!

This location needs a deep cleaning. The cushions on the banquette were filthy. One was turned so zipper faced out which made me wonder what they were hiding. There were cobwebs and stains above us. The spaces underneath the high tables were filthy too. I was really bummed. I stopped drinking water because I was afraid of what the bathroom would look like. Regarding the food, the added salmon for my salad was literally the size of a brownie. I've never seen anything like it.

This was the first time that I was disappointed. We waited for a long time for our food. People who came after us were served before us. The bread basket did not comply with the description on the menu. I asked for one poached egg only, but still got two. The sangria had no peach.

It just seemed that the staff was overwhelmed. So I was not impressed, but I'll come back.

This place is always crowded, but we like it, because the ambiance is fun.
Salads are very good, roasted cauliflower is the best, we this time try the paella, excellent. Crostini’s amazing. Good selection of wine.

This place is a good example of style over substance. Server was very blase, more interested in chatting with his friend at the bar than paying attention to customers. The chicken looked beautiful on the plate, but didn't have much flavor. The restaurant was pretty empty so I guess they tried to amp the atmosphere by turning up the house music. Prices are higher than most for what you get.

Service was slow - took long to clear our appetizer, which meant a delay in bringing out the entrees, which were cold as a result. We asked for the check 3 times, it took entirely too long to receive it.
Waiter was nice, but perhaps tending to too many tables at once.
First time having dinner at this location, brunch in the past has been better.
In general, this location is older and could probably use a full upgrade.
The 5th avenue location is far superior.
