Love the Fig & Olive in NY. DC needs to step up their game. Service was sub par. Burger was overdone and no one around to bring me the necessary condiments until my food got cold. Bartender needs to speak up so you can actually hear him talking to you.

We had a great time at this restaurant. Super friendly staff that just kept getting better as the night went on. We had a delicious meal and a great bottle of wine. The ambiance is very cozy. The manager came by for a chat and that meant a lot to us. Our server was on point in all aspects of her performance of her duties. She gave great recommendations which we followed. Very pleased with the outcome of the evening. My wife had lunch there earlier in the day and insisted that we go there for dinner that evening. That is how good this place is. We will absolutely return on our next visit to DC. It is a top five destination for us now. Thanks for a great evening.

No complaints about the food, but the service put a slight damper on our date. We got there at 5:00 on Columbus Day (so a holiday weekend to some, but not to others) and the restaurant was about 1/3 full. Not to mention we had 5:30 reservations so we arrived earlier than scheduled. None of this mattered though as they were seemingly trying to flip this table like it was 8:00 on Saturday night. Our entrees came out alarmingly soon after our apps and our waiter just acted in a curt manner that felt like he was hurrying us along. To reiterate, the restaurant was about 2/3 full when we left, so no need to rush. I'll freely admit the food was great, just hope someone who goes here has better service than we did.

Sunday brunch included live Jazz music and typically excellent food and cocktail choices. Wines by the glass are over-priced, but everything else was great!

This is my second time at Fig and Olive. Unfortunately, the service was as terrible this time as it was my first. We were constantly having to flag down our server. One of our orders was wrong and the item missing wasn’t brought out until the entree was completely finished. This place is beautiful and has so much potential but I don’t think I will be back.

Celebrated a friend's birthday at Fig & Olive. We had an excellent server who provided great recommendations. We enjoyed our cocktails and several courses of food. Since it was her birthday, she was able to choose a dessert that they provided complimentary. Overall, we were very pleased with the meal. It didn't come cheap. I expected it to be pricey and it was. I think it might have been a little over-priced for a few things. It was a special occasion and I'm glad we dined there. I would return for another special occasion.

Pleasant outdoor seating but the meal was disappointing. The Tajine was overcooked, flavorless, and served lukewarm.

Fig & Olive was fantastic! Our waitress did a great job decanting the rich Cabernet Sauvignon we brought with us. We had the Iberian Jambon for an appetizer, which was amazing. The lamb chops were seasoned and cooked perfectly. This was my second visit to this restaurant and it held up to my original impression. I will return!

I spent my birthday at Fig & Olive last night with my husband and 2 children. The ambiance is incredible. I loved the decor, lighting, and music. Food was excellent. However, service was slow. It took us 10 minutes before we got our beverages. It took the server even longer before he got back to us to take our entree order. It’s a weekend, I get it, which is why I didn’t bother to flag him down. The server was very nice, never seemed to be paying attention to our table. Let’s just put it this way, our menus were still sitting on the table even after we left and he didn’t even notice...

Dinner at Fig and Olive isn't an inexpensive proposition, I cobbled together a fabulous "tasting" menu with their crostini and sharing plates, allowing me to sample a wide range of goodness. My husband ordered the Chicken Tajine main dish and we were both very happy with our choices. We shared the apple tart for dessert and it was perfect. It was nice to eat something where you taste the fruit, instead of sugar. We lucked up weather-wise and enjoyed dining on the patio. We will definitely return to Fig and Olive!

Our server was completely inattentive and seemed he had better things to be doing than to even come by to ask if we wanted another drink or more food. He just never really checked in at all.

We made a last minute decision to eat at Fig & Olive and I have to say, it was a great experience. I did reserve our table through Open table. The service was excellent, the drinks were amazing and the lamb chops I ordered were phenomenal. All in all it was a great dining experience and I would highly recommend eating here.

Cheese and charcuterie was ok but a bit overpriced at $25. My wife was disappointed in her bouillabaisse entree. The broth was served luke-warm with the fish and prawns overly salted. The dish was suppose to contain fingerling potatoes but it came with squash instead. My daughter had the salmon which was good. My order of mushroom rigatoni was cooked well but sparse on the mushrooms. Service was fair. Quality of food did not justify the cost. Will not go there again.
