but the food is mediocre. Appetizers, entrees and desserts are just ok, but lack any creativity or passion. Only the wine list and cheeses are above par. It's a great place to meet for drinks and appetizers at the bar -- but don't expect anything special for dinner. After spending a millions on rent and decor, the owners should try focusing a bit more on the kitchen. It's a restaurant -- right?

I went to Fig & Olive this weekend and felt at home. Finally a restaurant that has a true feel of the Mediteranean with its fine ingredients and subtle flavors. The dishes are exquisite and treated in an original manner. The atmosphere is nice and trendy. A perfect restaurant for those who appreciate fine cuisine in an entertaining setting.

I've been there last saturday and I realy liked it! The food was great and the atmosphere is awsome! The service was perfect, we have a cute and smiling waiter which is getting a little hard to get in NYC! I got the crostinis and I really enjoyed it! I will definitely go back in this restaurant!

After reading the reviews I was a bit weary but I went last night and had an incredible time. Great food, great people, great vibe. I will absolutely be going back again!

My friends and me had a 10.30 reservation on a SAT. After arriving it took around an hour until we got seated. After ordering it took another hour until we had 1 appetizer. 2 hours for one bite to eat that late at night? I thought we are at a restaurant. still, after complaining the main course came before the other appetizers and they were soaked in oil and vinegar. Their excuse was that it is a 400 seat restaurant and lot to deal with....excuse me....if you have 400 seats, your kitchen should be able to handle that...every other place in the city can. We had to complain about everything and the staff seemed rather disinterested about service and us as customers.

tiny portions, rude staff, and a pretentious scene. entrees are less fulfilling than a street gyro that would cost u $4.00 the schtick w the olive oil is ridiculous too. no thanks, don't need olive oil on top of my already olive oiled dish. in short, eat elsewhere and save your hard earned dough.

We went here for valentines day. The small plates were tasty but average. The beef carpaccio and mam carpaccio were great. The drinks were tasty. Dinner was average tasting. The service was great we had a very nice waiter. Decor nice but tables close to each other. Not the best for valentines day.
