The halibut was dry as can be. The forgot to bring a side dish twice. $21 for a glass of 12 yr Mcallen scotch which was 1 oz measure poured is outrageous.

We have been there often but not sure we will be back.

The food was good, especially the scallops, mushroom croquettes and black ink paella. However, the service was really not up to the level and too slow and not attentive. We had to ask for the bread and water and had poor attention from teh server. And after spending 2.5 hours to get starters and entrees, we had to leave in a rush for our next commitment without even having the chance to try the deserts while we were coming to celebrate a birthday...quite disappointing !

I like the cozy atmosphere and ability to talk without yelling during business meals. Food is always excellent. Our server this time must have been new, he seemed a bit nervous/uncomfortable and was slow compared to others I have had. Food makes up for it though!

Lovely restaurant with a seasonal and diverse menu. Lots of delicious gluten free and vegetarian options for those that don’t eat meat. Although we didn’t have the lamb or steak, they looked and smelled delicious. Highly recommend for a date, business dinner or fun night out with friends.

I haven't been to F & O since they first opened, and I will not go back. You know it's bad when you have to set your stopwatch on your phone to see how long it takes for ANYONE to approach your table. They were not busy, and had multiple people milling about the restaurant floor. When we finally got water, after sitting for at least 8 minutes, it was lukewarm. It then took at least another 5 minutes for our server to greet us. The food was lackluster, definitely not worth $145 price tag for lunch (4 entrees, 2 apps and 1 drink). To boot, the server rarely checked in on us and we practically had to beg for our check. It's too bad this restaurant has fallen off the rails, as the food was excellent along with the service in years past.

The reception staff are friendly and professional. The menu was great and varied and our waiter was friendly and professional. I would strongly suggest that when a group of business people sit down for a lunch, they don't have unlimited time. Our wait was way too long in a mostly empty restaurant, and the food came out incomprehensibly with some people being served appetizers before others who also had appetizers. That is awkward for the party.

If we had just been friends out to lunch we would have been utterly charmed by the lovely bar and menu, great waiter and gorgeous décor.

This place is slowly becoming my go to for business luncheons. A wide, healthy, menu that caters to many people’s appetites and reasonably priced for an upscale place. It is always fairly quiet in the restaurant and makes conversing easy. Has a separate lunch menu which is nice for smaller meals rather than large entrees.

This was not my first visit to Fig&Olive and it is definitely on a downhill trend with all the earmarks of restaurant that is getting ready to close. The food was mediocre at best and the what few people were in the place were clearly tourists. The main floor was closed for a private event so everyone was shuttled upstairs where there is no where to wait while you wait for your table in an empty restaurant. Several people arrived while I was standing here saying that they were there for the "Happy Hour" and told that the bar was closed for a private event. Drawing people with your happy hour is also never a good sign.

Was a nice place when it opened but recently it just disappoints.
