Food was great. The atmosphere was just too loud, my date and I could not even hear each other talk. Not romantic at all.

So extremely noisy and cramped that it was seriously uncomfortable. Good food. Lousy environment.

The food was good. Our waiter attentive. A lot of groups and parties this particular evening. Noise level was deafening. Women screaming over each other. It wasn’t enjoyable due to the noise. They should have put two people downstairs in the bar area. It was rather quiet. A little more thought in the seating would have been nice. I enjoy this restaurant, but doubt I will go back. Too many in town know how to do both well.

It took forever for the food to come so we packed it all to go. When I got back to my office the chicken Paillarf was dry, rubbery and the salad say wilted.

Yes it is the holiday season but: long line out the door to process reservation (only one guy), tables so close together it was almost impossible to squeeze through, service harried and foregtful ( guys wandering the room with plates looking for diners). Kinda felt more like a busy cafeteria and noise was insane

I have been going to Fig and Olive for years but today was a horrible experience. We waited 15 minutes before anyone came to our table. Someone finally came after I asked for a server. It took forever to get our food and when we did get it was wrong. Also the kitchen staff and waiters were arguing in a completely open space for all customers to see. When I told the waiter how bad of an experience it was his response was, “Its the holidays we are overwhelmed”. Needless to say I will never be going back to Fig and Olive again.

Fig and Olive is a fun, lively place. We were seated upstairs, and while crowded, we did not feel like we were on top of other tables. Our group shared the delicious crostini --definitely get some! Everyone enjoyed their dinner. Salmon was very fresh, cooked perfectly. Nice mid-town restaurant.

We visited the restaurant prior to seeing a show. The location was just a 15 minute walk to the theatre district. The food was fantastic. The crostini selection was a great starting point, then had fabulous entree and dessert. Will be recommending to our friends.

My friend had a paper bar code within her salad - the burrata and beet root one. Staff was attentive though and replaced her meal. Still... not a good experience. I have been to this restaurant several time and it was the first time.
Our table was close to the kitchen and not the best one...

Beet salad was good . Bread appetizer was pitiful in quality and quantity . Salmon burger was too thin and too dry ... French fries is a misnomer for the potatoes . Overall , not a satisfying experience.

Seems like lunch time during the holidays is not the best time - kitchen was a bit rushed and service spread a bit thin.

We were seated on the upper level and my Apple Watch alerted me to the decibel level being over 90 twice in the 70 or so minutes of lunch. Talk about it being energetic though it could be the function of packing in more seats.

Service was a bit rushed, and it took about 30 minutes to get our orders in. I ordered a salmon burger and it arrived a bit soggy though the salmon was done well (cannot say that for the bun).

I have been at this location before and I would come again - though after the holidays.

A good selection on the menu, modern mixed Mediterranean options. Service didn't drop despite how busy it was, price was in the moderate high range, food arrived rather quickly as well. As tradition calls, there was a basket of bread with flavoured Olive oils that was served.

It was a absolute chaos at the front of the restaurant with people waiting for tables for ages. We left without eating as it was going to take forever. Staff were very nonchalant about it and said it New York midtown at lunch time as if we should expect to have to wait for our table for ages. So very poor experience

Out of this world! It was our anniversary and we were treated very specially. Our waiter (Brandon) was attentive and professional without being intrusive. He anticipated our needs, made helpful suggestions, and added to the entire dining experience. This is how wait staff used to be. Nice to see Fig and Olive is supporting such standards! Food was delicious, as was the dessert! Don’t change a thing.
