Great food, great service, nice ambiance. A little noisy if you're looking for a quiet restaurant. A lovely dining experience.

Went with my sister who is allergic to nuts. We told the waiter twice. She orders the ravioli. It comes drizzled with pesto and NUTS. We send it back. Get the melon and proscuitto, she starts to eat and sees on the bottom there is pesto and yes NUTS. And things went downhill from there.

AMAZING! The small plates are definitely better than the big plates but DELICIOUS! I recommend the Jamon with Fig and Goat Cheese.

If only I remembered to pack a pb&j in my pocket beforehand. This place is the ultimate of phony "trendy" restaurants in NYC. Let this be a warning before hand: if you're any sort of a normal human being that likes to eat food and be full, you will leave this restaurant STARVING. The entree portions were meant for children below the age of 4. The scallop and shrimp paella could have fit into a Gerber jar...Seriously. I can't stress enough how I urge everyone to never order that dish if they're remotely hungry. I heard the Crostinis are good, but again, if they're gonna offer entrees on their menu, they must be substantial. Especially if they're gonna charge $30 a piece.

Had a reservation for 7pm on a week night. As soon as it appeared as my table was done eating they took our plates. Immediately after the waitress brought the bill. She attempted to take the bill before we even paid. As soon as we paid the waitress collected our napkins. It was 8 pm at this point- 1 hour after our reservation- not a fine dining experience- and the waitress took our water glasses- it was clear they wanted our table- so we left. Although the food was delicious- this treatment was rude and unprofessional

I go to Fig and Olive weekly, if not more. The quality of the food is never disappointing and even if the waiters are serious and not super talkative, they do their job and they do it well. The ingredients are always extremely fresh and their drinks are always delicious. Maybe it's because I'm always there but the managers are so kind and accommodating. Its honestly perfect for a date, dinner with friends, or even to pick up from. Overall, wonderful dining experience.

Our first encounter watching a waiter laugh at us we tried to maneuver our shopping bags in a tight space. It was a clealy an unkind laugh. I ordered the pasta with scallops. There were 4 small over cooked scallops. The pasta was so dry I could not eat it. The service a inattentive. We had to wait a very long time after we finish our meal for our server to return to our table. We asked for the bill and left. I wish I left as soon as we saw the waiter being rude. Expensive for what you get and the quality of the food too.. With all the wonderful restaraunts in NYC I don't know why anyone would choose to eat here.
