I had a reservation for four people on a Wednesday night at 715. I arrived at 710 and told the hostess. I wasn’t seated u til 8:10 after going up to the hostess multiple times and asking when we would be seated she kept saying we’re next we’re next and we were not seating until fifty minutes later and no accommodations were made at all. Very ridiculous be waiting for that long of a time. food was delicious and ambiance was beautiful

We were seated upstairs. The music was crazy loud and there was nowhere to escape it as there are speakers over every table. The server was overly doting to the point of annoyance. The food was average at best with a high price tag.

We wanted a place to have a nice conversation in a lovely atmosphere before a Broadway Matinee. We were very pleased with our experience. The location is perfect for anyone seeing a show in the W52 area, it’s away from crazy Times Square yet only two blocks away.

That said we much prefer the 14th Street location ambience. Even though this location emphasizes Fifth Avenue, the space is tight. Also, the food is good, and being away from Times Square is worth it to me, but several of the entrees plus the cocktails, were overpriced.

My partner and I went to Fig + Olive for a date night as we were visiting NYC soon after Xmas, and the whole experience was outstanding.

The staff went above and beyond to cater to our needs, even hand crafting specialist non alcoholic cocktails for us. The food was amazing - cooked to perfection and peppered with an array of flavours. Even the bread comes with artesian orange balsamic glaze, which was sensational.

Pricing was reasonable, everything was wonderfully presented, and the decor was wonderfully elegant and truly gave an authentic Mediterranean feel.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND - NEIGHBOURHOOD GEM

Celebrated the birthday of two friends this past Saturday and it really was a great night. The seafood dishes were fantastic (salmon, sea bass), but the 4 friends who shared 2 chateaubriand felt it was nothing special, specifically the mashed potatoes falling very short. Our waiter was nice, and they even sent out two desserts for the birthday guests unexpectedly.

We would definitely come back in the future, but maybe not on a Saturday night when it is so busy.

As Fig in West Hollywood the server always makes you feel special, on 5th Avenue we had to wait more than 10 minutes for the server to even show up. They failed to deliver their famous bread with different types of olive oils until our first course was well under way. Additionally, the waiter failed to describe the oils but just left them on the table instead. The food was more or less of the same quality but it just didn't feel as good given the entire non-food experience. Instead of an upscale restaurant I am used to in West Hollywood, this 5th Avenue location felt more like a nicer version of Denny's.

Lunch very popular but food disapointing. Very high noise level when at its fullest. Not conducive to meaningful conversation. Service was professional and the decor was very pleasing. Considering the other options in the area that would provide better food, I would not return.

Friend and I enjoyed burgers while walking around nyc. She loved the salmon burger but did not like the texture of the salad. I had the lamb burger- ok but not well seasoned and enjoyed the watercress salad. Both enjoyed the roasted potato “fries “ wished there were more and they needed salt.

The food and service was great. Only one thing I would change. We had a 5:30 reservation and when we were shown to our table we had to squeeze in between two other 2 tops which normally is fine. However the other 1/2 of the restaurant was totally open. Fig and Olivia management, maybe try spacing out the seatings a bit across the restaurant? This would make us feel like we had a little time to ourselves before other patrons were seated vs the experience we did have which was sitting next to a guy who was on the phone, loudly, for 5-10 minutes. That’s uncontrollable for sure but if we had been seated elsewhere it would have made for a stellar experience. Thanks for listening.

We were moved tables which is usually fine but our waiters forgot about us and I had to bed for my bill and was late for a meeting. Food came out very late.

Have been to Fig and Olive’s before, but not this one. This experience was underwhelming. The crostini were all stone cold, including the bread, which I don’t recall being the norm from my other visits. Maybe I’m wrong. At any rate they were were slapped together in about two minutes and were so-so. The meals came out feeling like they were assembled rather than cooked or prepared. Had a mass-produced feel that wasn’t in line with the pricing. Service was fine but it just wasn’t an experience that would make me hurry back anytime soon.

We did not know that New Years Day menu will be so limited. In the meantime, available choices were just ok'ish - nothing to brag about. I think it was a bit too expensive for what it was. Service was good. I hope they would do better with a regular menu.

Food is fresh, wholesome, delicous. Restaurant service a bit slow, had to ask for the bread and olive oil 3x until finally I just got up and went to retrieve it myself. And tables super close together, forget having a somewhat private conversation.
