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.

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.

Loved my meal here but what annoyed me was that I booked with open table and when I came in I told them I was there and had a reservation. After I had eaten and paid and was at home I got an email saying that I never arrived and I was being removed from the points that would have been given. I phoned the restaurant and the lady who answered the phone said she couldn’t do anything. So I said let me speak to the manager. She came back and suddenly said manager not available. Now what I don’t understand is that I booked , I arrived , I ate and paid so why would u say I didn’t arrive and then make no attempt to rectify.

I’ve been twice before this experience to the Meatpacking location and the food was fine. Not spectacular but fine. This time we tried the UES side location and the food was positively inedible. Our lamb was completely rare and uncooked (I love s good medium rare steak but this was insane). Our shrimp was uncooked and we had to send it all back. The saffron paella had no taste and the clams were boiled and put on top, the rest of the seafood was chewy and hard to eat. It also tasted particularly fishy. We had to send everything back, first time we have ever done that at a restaurant in anywhere in the world. Dreadful.

Once again, despite ma ny good restaurants in. the area, I chose Fig & Olive where the food is excellent. The wine and drink menu is an added treat. Service its also excellent with both waitpersons a nd staff being attentive. My only problem is tryin g to choose my food when there are so many wonderful choices. I do highly recommend Fig & Olive.

All the Fig&Olive restaurants are good and serve delicious crostini. This is the one to choose if you are looking for a quiet atmosphere. It’s smaller than the others. Enjoyed a tasty brunch with friends and were actually able to carry on a conversation.

This was our second time. Both experiences were great! The food was absolutely delicious! Get the crostini’s. We got 6 and cut them in half for an appetizer. The main dishes were delicious, cooked perfectly and seasoned correctly. Also don’t turn down the blood orange olive oil. It’s like nothing you’ve ever tasted. Oh and lastly, their homemade olives are the best! Fig and Olive has become one of our favorites. Our only negative would be that the music is too loud. Music should be an enhancement not to compete with. Makes the customers have to yell at each other to be heard.

Great place!

Liked the space very much. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. A big shocker was that there is not a full bar at this location! Would have liked to know that ahead of time. The appetizers and main course were wonderful - delicious and imaginative in combinations of ingredients. Our two desserts - the apple sorbet & pot de creme were not good. The sorbet was too sweet and had the consistency more of an “icey” and the pot de creme tasted just sub par (perhaps the quality of the chocolates?). The price fixe menu was a winner in all regards. All in all however, I would definitely return!

I've been frequenting fir and olive for years. And, have loved it, however, last Sat. there was a children's birthday party which made the noise unbearable. When I mentioned to the manager that this is not the kind of place for children's birthday parties,he said, 'they have to eat, too!!!! I'll think twice before going back.
