We walked here from the Met. A sweet place on Lex with an interesting set up. The food was remarkable. French and plenty. Anything with chestnuts and goat cheese makes me happy. My meal came with an app and desert. I was in neaven!

Pasta dishes were fabulous! Took two very hungry 13 year old girls and they cleaned their plates! Loved it!

We enjoyed a lunch here recently - I liked this place quite a lot. It is located in a bustling shopping neighborhood on the Upper East side. We both ordered the prix-fixe lunch, which is a good value. Food was very good. Atmosphere is nice: stylish but relaxed. Service was adequate, but a bit stiff. Could be much more welcoming.... More

Friends from out of town with whom we had Sunday brunch agreed that this was a fine choice. The noise level was moderate so we could talk comfortably. The tables are not widely spaced but our neighbors and we could keep our own conversations private. The restaurant is attractive in appearance---wood-topped tables, lots of white and wood. The servers were... More

Not a large menu for meals but honestly, the crostinis and a salad are enough. Lovely atmosphere and would definitely go back.

Fig & Olive Uptown is a lovely cozy Mediterranean restaurant located at Lexington Ave. Although the atmosphere is great (as well as the service, very friendly), the food is not impressive. The crudos are good, but the risottos and pastas were bland. The desserts were correct, but not great. The ratio cost-benefit is OK.

We had been to this restaurant several years ago and decided to return. We began with the cheeseboard and follow with the Fig and Olive Salad with chicken. Both were tasty and nicely prepared. We finished with a baked apple pastry an vanilla ice cream. This was a fitting ending to a good meal. We'll return in the future.

We tried the spring menu here this year. And it was brilliant! The menu was very creative, the service great and overall a great experience.

Description
At FIG & OLIVE, we want to highlight our menu’s core ingredient of olive oil, which we use in place of butter in our dishes. From a sweet and delicate olive oil from the French Riviera that pairs well with a Steamed Lemon Sole Papillote to an assertive Spanish Picual or a Tuscan olive oil that holds its own with Seared Salmon with Fennel and Green Olives, and a green-fruit Provence olive oil that we serve with a Green Apple Sorbet. Our cuisine along with an elegant white, green and terra-cotta décor immerse our guests into the essence of the Mediterranean region.
